As some of you may recall, I did not like Flower Boy Ramyun Shop (and that’s putting it mildly.) So when I read that tvN was coming up with yet another flower boy drama — this time with an even more ridiculous name — I wrote it off immediately.
I was prepared to mock it endlessly, especially when I found out that one of the bands in the drama was called Strawberry Fields. If it was a new brand of yoghurt or a new line of air fresheners I’d understand but a rock band? Really? (ETA: I just found out that there’s actually a Korean rock band by this name. So this just goes to show you how much I know.)
So anyway, I was planning to come up with at least 20 different ways to describe the stupidity of this drama.
And then I watched the first episode.
Okay, just pass me the damn crow so that I can get it over and done with. (Spoilers for episodes 1 and 2) (more…)
