  1. This melo/crime drama is mind-blowing – it’s real, gritty, suspenseful and plumbs well the depths of human nature on the level of love vs. evil. There was sizzling chemistry between the main leads and it’s, for me, the best Lee Joon-Gi drama to date, which is saying a lot especially when he has delivered consistently good acting performance all this while! In fact, The Flower of Evil comes closest to another k-drama that i absolutely adore – The Smile Has Left Your Eyes (2018) – as both these dramas convey well the meaning of love and acceptance that emerge from pain and the feelings of inadequacy, abandonment and rejection. It also reminds me of William Golding’s, Lord of the Flies, in its exploration of the human psyche when bad deeds are committed, intentionally or otherwise.
