Drama Casting & News
Third tvN Flower Boy drama stars Yoon Shi-yoon, Park Shin-hye
by | October 31, 2012 | 202 Comments

Dude. DUDE! I’m not going to jump the gun and say this show is going to be awesome… but it’s going to be awesome, right?

The time has come for a third installment in the “Flower Boy” series, and this one is titled Flower Boy Next Door. I love that, inasmuch as I love all cute plays on words. The producers have scored two big names for this one: Yoon Shi-yoon and Park Shin-hye. Huzzah! Two young talents with acting skills to match their pretty faces.

Cable channel tvN has scored twice thus far with its “Oh Boy” series of programming. Oh Boy was a project that kicked off last year to target the young teenage demographic (which doesn’t always command the big broadcast audiences—the prime-time dramas on the Big Three stations mostly target 20-something and 30-something audiences, as well as the ajumma viewer base). It kicked off with Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, then aired a reality audition show to cast a supporting role in the follow-up drama. Straight from the auditions did Yoo Min-kyu go to Shut Up: Flower Boy Band, where he played bassist Ha-jin.

Both Flower Boy dramas have been ratings successes and became buzz shows, and both definitely scored with me—they were vastly different despite the Flower Boy in their titles, but spoke to me for different reasons. Ramyun Shop was zany and comedic in the best of ways, while Shut Up just spoke to my heart. The reason both worked—despite the admittedly gimmicky premise—is that even though they’ve got the trappings of fluff teen fare (and the marketing, branding, and pretty faces), neither drama forgot to have a story and a spirit, and contained tons of warmth and soul.

Thus I’m hoping third time is also a charm, and am optimistic that this one will also have a solid story to carry the drama. It’s based on an existing webtoon called I Steal Peeks At Him Every Day. It’s an upbeat, lively story that centers around an “urban Rapunzel” type character, played by Park Shin-hye, who is locked up in her lonely tower. Figuratively speaking—at least I hope. She sneaks peeks at her neighbor across the street, and gets caught by a different guy, played by Yoon Shi-yoon. Sold and sold. I’m hooked already.

These names crack me up; Park plays Go Dok-mi, which is a play on the word for lonely (go-dok). Yoon’s flower boy character is named Enrique Geum. Okay, there’s nothing inherently funny about his name, but the juxtaposition amuses me. Enrique is a fashionable creative director with charm out the wazoo and “superior genes.” Heh.

I’m super excited about this pairing, because I love both actors but not always all their roles, and this one sounds like it’ll be great for both of them. I’m crossing fingers and toes that they have chemistry, because they sure have the comedic and dramatic chops. I really enjoyed Yoon Shi-yoon in his last drama, Me Too, Flower, and he was good in it—but that drama nosedived and I couldn’t shake the feeling that he was terribly miscast. Park, too, has had some winners and also some… not-so-winners. So I’m hoping this one succeeds.

Plus! PD Jung Jung-hwa is back in the game, after having directed Flower Boy Ramyun Shop. Screenwriter Kim Eun-jung is penning the scripts; her film credits include Coffee (Gabi) and Hwang Jini (the 2007 movie).

Just like the first two series, Flower Boy Next Door one will be a Monday-Tuesday romantic comedy running for 16 episodes. It premieres on January 7, 2013. *circles date in red ink* *decorates with flowers and hearts*

    omggggggggg IM SO EXCITEDDDD ASDSAFSJKNAELAWND

    k breatheee

    okay. WHOA. i was totally thinking about TvN’s flower boy series a couple days ago and wondering if that was still a thing or if it was just those like, 2 dramas months and months ago (BOTH OF WHICH I LOVE WHICH MEANS THERES A GOOD CHANCE I WILL LOVE THIS YOU HAD BETTER NOT DISAPPOINT ME TVN)

  10. 10 Bengbeng

    loving it already. I haven’t seen the 2 in a while. Shipping them already =)

  11. 11 Daisy

    YES THIS IS GONNA BE AWESOME!!!

  12. 12 MsB

    Circled and reddened! Imagine my shout for joy with another reason to love my KDramas! YSY is on my list as I have seen and loved everything, including Me Too, Flower! But Baker King started it for me. I definitely like PSH and I think the pairing can possibly be perfect. And another plus is its on cable! The romances tend to be yummier!! Yum! Yum! Yum!

  13. 13 mas

    I CAN’T WAIT! Ahhhh I’ve missed them both in dramaland so fricking much!
    I was having a bit of a down day, but this made me SO happy xD

    Aw, only downside is…JANUARY 2013! It feels like ages away. Well it is ages away. *sigh*

    Time, go faster please. T_T

  14. 14 nomu nomu nomu

    AWESOME!!! excited for the new series :-)
    Loved the previous two installment. So. Much. Heart.

    I actually think using the “Flower Boy” label for the title is doing the drama series a disservice. I almost didn’t check out the previous two and thus would of missed out on two great, well written with plenty of heart.
    (think Fashion king, to the beautiful you, DH2, etc, etc, Crap drama is crap drama regardless if cast is beautiful or a dozen flower boys are in it. )

    Take note, dramaland! Fluffy doesn’t always means empty calories.

  15. 15 redfox

    I hope it is more like Shut Up…. and less like Ramyun Shop.

    • 15.1 crazedlu

      Total ditto.

    • 15.2 mrmz

      Me too!!!

  16. 16 browncoat_78

    I couldn’t have cast this better myself. When I saw this news earlier today, I squeed — BIG TIME! I LURVE Yoon Si Yoon and there is just not enough of him in dramaland to go around! And I at least like Park Shin Hye. So YIPPEE!!!!! Also, I’ve decided that tVN is just totally awesome and I’ve loved everything I’ve seen from them, especially the Flower Boy series’ earlier installments. This will be perfection!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. 17 ricky

    Park shin hye is so talented and beautiful. I’m not always into the dramas she’s in, but since this is the third installment to the flower boy series I’m hoping it will be good. The first two were really entertaining with a great cast and interesting stories to tell.

  18. 18 cutieblue

    This sounds fun! :) romantic and comedic and pretty, oh my! I was just looking for info about when this would exactly start last night, you have come to my rescue javabeans! ^^

  19. 19 crazedlu

    Excited!

    K, I was a fan of Yoon and was even excited for his casting in Me Too, Flower until that drama just didn’t hit it right with me. Miscaaaasst. I started to question my fandom then, so let’s see if he does this one well with Park. I just love her too much to not want this drama to succeed. The Flower series so far have fared well so I’m not too worried. Plus, love the premise. Ha.

  20. 20 sPark*

    When I found out about this yesterday, I couldn’t contain my excitement. I LOVE Yoon Shi Yoon (Me Too, Flower *drool*) and Park Shin Hye (since forever lol). I never thought about putting these two together, but OMG this is such a BRILLIANT idea! I hope this one is just as awesome as Shut Up Flower Boy Band and not really like Ramyun Shop since I never finished that one. I hope the script is written well so that both leads can bring their A-game and have many scenes that will showcase their (hopefully) sizzling, adorable chemistry 😀 I think I have conveyed my enthusiasm enough heh

  21. 21 Faye

    Very exciting news! Does anyone know if this will be available to watch online in the States (on any legitimate sites that air K-dramas) before the series concludes?

    Thanks!

    • 21.1 nomu nomu nomu

      The previous two Flower Boy series was available on pretty much ALL the k-drama streaming sites. (Raws released same day and subs didn’t take too long, if i remember correctly, subs was available within several days)

    • 21.2 jomo

      Dramafever had them up subbed pretty fast, too.

  22. 22 MsScorpion

    I was just wondering today about why Park Shin-Hye is hiding from dramaland since “You’ve Fallen For Me” specially after seeing her look stunning at the Grand Bell awards……and BAMM this comes up, I’m soooooooooooo excited right now.

    And I have to say this but TvN is rocking it this year one awesome drama after the other…..
    *crosses fingers for it to be another AWESOME hit*

  23. 23 Bu Young

    I missed Yoon Si Yoon so I’m in!

  24. 24 toritorisan

    Awesome! This is such good news…! There just seems to be more and more great new dramas to look forward to. Love the casting – both are very strong in acting and the story seems to fit their personalities perfectly! Wish it would come sooner than later. Can’t wait!

  25. 25 Joy

    Hope tis can replace my Mon-Tue FAITH addiction. Perhaps a rehab for me on Mon-Tue.

  26. 26 ranisa

    This is one pairing that I always dream will happen but kinda thought that it won’t materialize coz they’re just both so pretty. What, they wanna choked the audiences with Yoon Shi Yoon’s and Park Shin Hye’s killer charms and die happy? If that’s that then I’ll die with a huge grin on my face but let me finish it first. Hee…

    Don’t go wrong with me drama. Hearstring’s nonsensical plot is enough, and I just felt wronged after watching Me Too Flower! Oh, boy, I want this to be good. Please be good! If you can’t, then please be awesome!

  27. 27 Carolyn

    I think I just fainted from excitement!!! Amazing casting! I ditto – *circles date in red ink* *decorates with flowers and hearts*

  28. 28 Shortiesss

    this is such wonderful news!!!! ive loved yoon shi yoon since watching him in baker king and me too flower and park shin hye was awesome in you’re beautiful and heartstrings. they are just too cute for words!

    i hope they have awesome chemistry b/c it would be such a waste of pretty faces if this drama isnt good!

  29. 29 pinkpia

    This will be the most pained waiting ever! January is sooooo far *sigh* Loved both of the previous flower boy installments, Shut Up more than Ramyan Shop though. But all the characters were so good love them to bits except for the leading ladies, for me, they were definitely not up there with all the boys. Still this hasn’t dampened my love for the drama series & I am super excited for this one.

    Both the leads are great & hope these two will have awesome chemistry! The premise for this has me laughing a lot & I cannot wait till January. WHAT AM I SUPPOSE TO DO IN THE MEANTIME!??????

    Loving tvN. This is my Channel. I shall not tune out everrrrr

  30. 30 Gaeina Lee

    I am overly ecstatic~~ Wait, hold on… January? January?! How many dramas that I’ve been waiting for will start in December/January…??

    Duh! Goodbye sleep. Hello sleep deprived. #_#”

    yay!!! I love the two of them!!!!

  33. 33 zoe

    Only one flower boy??? Cmon dey ve to get atleast 3!

    • 33.1 ladida

      I think Yoon Shi Yoon can make up for, like, 5, lol. (My fangirl is showing, sorry!)

      • 33.1.1 anicheung

        Agree. But it doesn’t hurt to have multiple flower boys who can also make up for more than one. Just saying. 😛

  34. 34 jubilantia

    FUCK. YEAH.

    I was wondering when another one of these would come! They’re so much fun, and like you, I was so surprised and delighted when the dramas had quality behind the pretty faces. And then sad when they had two in a row, with no word of another one.

    Count me in!

  35. 35 Natalie

    OMG!! I’m so excited! I LOVE him. This is going to be great…

  36. 36 Jambo

    And so my kdrama addiction goes on….

    I like Park Shin Hye…still bummed that Heartstrings didn’t do as well as it could’ve since it’s like giving her and Jung Yong Hwa a second chance. I liked them together better than the OTP in You’re Beautiful.

    Anyways….here’s something to look forward to in 2013…none of that apocalyptic talk now!

  37. 37 malta

    Sooooooo excited!!! Woohhooo!

    Love YSY.

    • 37.1 ladida

      Squee!!!!! Cannot. Contain. Emotions.

  38. 38 Danna

    I’ve been excited before they even announced the cast…that was lsst week…this casting is like icing on the cake….and to think I was so skeptical when they first announced this series…it was the whole idea of an entire series on flower boys…shut up changed all that….cuz they really do care abt story and these shows have so much heart….super excited…NOW 2013 look so much more awesome!!

  39. 39 PiggyBunny12

    I’m sooooo excited for this! I didn’t love Ramyun Shop…but FBBand was so amazing. I’ve been waiting for the next one ever since it ended. + Park Shin Hye!

    I’m not really interested in any of the shows out right now so I”m excited for something to watch live in January :)

  40. 40 gailT

    Anybody knows where we can steal sneak peeks at the webtoon, I Steal Peeks At Him Every Day? It sounds like my kind of story (sounds like my life, perhaps?). Any link to the webtoon?

  41. 41 becca_boo

    well, there go my monday and tuesday nights. I am sooo all over this drama. love the casting, too. : )

  42. 42 mskololia

    “She sneaks peeks at her neighbor across the street, and gets caught by a different guy, played by Yoon Shi-yoon. ”

    Too funny.

  43. 43 Jenny

    I would have loved it if they would have had one of the lead be a more unknown face but I like both actors though.
    So yayayayayay!!!!

  44. 44 Russe12

    I totally had to keep myself from squealing when I saw this. SUFBB and FBRS are two of my favorite dramas, although unlike most people, I like FBRS more. It’s probably because I’m a complete Jung Il-woo fangirl, rather than an actually intellectual comparison of the two, but what can I say? He’s amazing.

    So now I have to last until January…OMG, why?!

    • 44.1 SoulsEntwined

      FBRS is what made me into a Jung Il-woo fangirl. Loved FBRS and liked SUFBB.

  45. 45 SoMaeny

    Awww… but Yoon Shi Yoon is just a puppy to me. I have a feeling I’m going to have a severe case of Second Lead Syndrome~~

    • 45.1 jomo

      He was an extremely convincing leading man in M2F, even if the story fell apart.

      Very sexy voice, and one of the top kissers of 2011/2012, I tell you.

      • 45.1.1 Mystisith

        I still rage over the wtf editing for that kiss. Screen on fire! And yes, that Darth Vader’s voice. *fans self*.

        • 45.1.1.1 jomo

          I hope they make him all dark and cynical to start.
          I like him like that.

          And his hair better not be flooffed out.

          • 45.1.1.1.1 Fireatwill

            Aww it’s too bad for you then because his character is the total opposite.
            I personally don’t mind because Korean dramas rarely have the cute and always happy guy as the main lead. Usually it’s the second or third lead that’s like that. The only drama I can think of that has one was Kim Tak Gu which coincidently, Yoon Siyoon acted as haha

      • 45.1.2 ladida

        ♥ ♥ ♥

    • 45.2 Annie

      Park Shin Hye is a puppy herself, so it’s fitting.

  46. 46 jomo

    So, yes.
    My heart leapt up over my monitor, through the ceiling and landed outside on the swing where it hot straight up to the drama gods and kissed them.

    • 46.1 oh yes

      I just did the same last nite lol

  47. 47 Mary

    WTF? Enrique? LOL

  48. 48 Sabah

    Finally this got confirmed! I was really hoping that the rumours were true.

    Thank you so much for the info on the story which makes me just love it even more. The oh boy series is definitely a hit with me despite me being way out of the target audience range. My mind is already conjuring up fantastical scenarios. Will she be a Rapunzel type princess, locked up though voluntarily? (Maybe a skin condition which keeps her unable to be out in the sun.) Or will it be more in the style of Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge and self inflicted? Hmm, either way or another one, I am just asking to bring it on! January seems just too far away…

    Park Shin Hye has this wonderful charm that is endearing and Yoon Shi yoon was excellent in Me too flower. Their pairing really has me anticipating something grand, for no real reason except in my heart of hearts I want everything to just work out into happily ever after, for the production people, actors and audience alike. Yay!

  49. 49 oh yes

    You have no idea how much shaking and crying I have since last night. I have been crying that she need to be back already. And there have been rumors that she was in a talk with SBS… But a cable drama is something I wish she would have tried for at least once. So my wish came true ( even the rating wont be as high as the usual channels)
    But PSH +TvN= Perfection
    Add more YSY and the flower boy series will be ice in the cake. I just can’t wait.
    They will start filming this month but we wont able to see it until January 7th. :(
    *circles date in red ink* *decorates with flowers and hearts* and continue the happy dance :)

    I was *just* wondering when Yoon Shi-Yoon was going to return to dramaland! SO excited!!!!

    I was *just* wondering when Yoon Shi-Yoon was going to return to dramaland! SO excited!!

    • 51.1 kdramapedia

      Oops, sorry for the double post… I was on my phone.

  52. 52 Lilian

    Definitely watching this. I loved the first two: Ramyun for Jung Il Woo and Shut Up for the amazing young cast ensemble.

  53. 53 VB

    Hmm.. I’ve only seen PSH in Heartstrings, and couldn’t finish it. YSY, I’ve only seen a few episodes of Me too, Flower. So I’m just thinking that I happen to catch both their not as good dramas. Let’s hope this one will work out!

    • 53.1 Mari

      Please!!! Please watch “you’re beautiful” she’s soo adorable!!! Plus it has an amazing cast. This was my 2nd Kdrama ever watched & what started my drama addiction ( my first was “lie to me” ugh**** I almost quit then)

    • 53.2 jyyjc

      Am not the biggest fan of Park shinhye, all her roles are hit or miss for me. Mostly misses but I don’t dislike her. I would have looooved if Jung somin or Park boyoung got this role.

      • 53.2.1 jyyjc

        Hmm don’t know why my comment ended up here when I intended for it to be at the bottom but ha it’s kind of related to your comment.

      • 53.2.2 Kingking

        I also not into park shin hye. But i think i’ll watch this, since ramyun n shut up are a good dramas. And i hope it’s not jung soomin, i watched her in PK n just meeeeh. After that i never watch her in anydrama anymore.

  54. 54 bridgettejones

    When 2 known primetime miniseries leads gets transferred to cable drama that means their career is doing bad.

    Only exception is if top stars like jang dong gun and kim ha neul accept cable offer cause then that means they got paid a lot.

    Park shin Hye has done nothing but teenybopper roles for how many consective dramas, which have been failures. I was really hoping that she would go back to her old days, where she picked projects that have depth. I knew that after consecutive failed projects they would put her on cable that’s how it works in Korea. I thought she would have learned her lesson by now.

    Same thing as Yoon Si Yoon, after baker king, he’s just been floundering. It’s a huge slap in the face to have starred in a big rating drama like Baker King, and now they transfer him to cable after failing in Me Too Flower, while his second lead in Bake King’s Joo Won is doing so well as a lead in primetime dramas on regular networks.

    • 54.1 Mystisith

      Your vision of cable is outdated. It was valid a few years ago but not anymore. The dramas on cable have less audience but a faithful one and the critics agree on the quality of the scripts. tvN which is part of CJent has announced recently they won loads of money with their recent dramas. Their stories are fresh and innovative.
      I would take a good drama on cable over a crappy one on the Big 3 anytime and actors/writers are beginning to realize it too.

      • 54.1.1 ladida

        And cable has been doing fairly well critically: A Wife’s Credentials, Queen In Soo, I Live in Chungdam-dong, Padam Padam, Reply 1997, the Flower Boy series. I mean, that’s some pretty heavy lifting. I think Channel A is the only one that hasn’t put out incredible programming.

        • 54.1.1.1 Annie

          A Wife’s Credentials is one of the best dramas I’ve ever seen. Cable has been really bringing it to the Big 3 these past few years.

    • 54.2 ......

      there have been lots of big name and veteran stars who did cable shows (Chae Sira, Lee Tae Ran, etc… and oh there’s Jung Woo Sung too) and i doubt their career is doing ‘bad’, so i don’t know how you ended up with that conclusion ._. plus the tv landscape has been shifting this year; cable dramas that generated buzz earned their actors some recognition and fame.

    • 54.3 not really

      lol accept not really
      TVN have done a lot of good dramas and get sold a lot this year( some dramas got sold in 20 countries). And don’t underestimate the power of Park Shin Hye’s fans.
      The both previous dramas PSH have done is because they are idol dramas but I don’t think it the case this time
      We will need to see after we see it

    • 54.4 ladida

      Funny, I loved and love Me Too Flower and stopped watching Gaksital after episode 8. Anyway, cable means kissing! (Which is always important to the narrative, teehee.)

      • 54.4.1 Mystisith

        Kisses and hugs over torture anytime! Lol!

    • 54.5 kimv

      I don’t think Shinhye’s career is doing bad, she may not have any regular drama this year but do you really think she didn’t have offers. She’s one celebrity who gives her studies so much importance and I think this is one reason why she didn’t accept a drama series this year plus the fact that she has lots of out of the country events to attend to. She did a special drama and a movie (which is still to be shown) and just finished the Heartstrings FM with JYH and the most recent the Okinawa Kpop Festival where is was an MC. Is this someone whose career is doing bad? Isn’t her schedule so hectic. I find her so amazing.

      Also, TVN is doing so well these days and their stories are great, enough to give the Big 3 competition. Eventually, this cable channel will catch up but I hope they will retain their good stories.

  55. 55 Cassandra

    Wow, totally excited for this one. I was disappointed when there was no news about the continuation of the Flower Boy series after the end of SUFBB.

  56. 56 shoesrgreatrite

    oh wow!! i just finished marathoning shut up flower boy band and can i say its 1 of the best dramas i’ve watched this year. Flower boy ramyun shop was really cute and so full.of heart! So excited for the 3rd drama in oh boy series. Damnnnn tvN is hitting out of the park this year,not to mention i loved ALL their dramas this year. To name a few,queen in hyun’s man,reply 1997,i need romance. Most of it is so much better than what i watched from the big 3. SO EXCITED OMG CANT WAIT PARK SHIN HYE I LOVE U :)

  57. 57 SoulsEntwined

    can’t wait, the previous 2 were so good

  58. 58 cv

    This is great news!! ^^ It’s going to be another hit show!

  59. 59 ZzJennyzZ

    This is sooo awesome!
    Just today I thought when tvN will continue their Flower Boy series and a few hours later I read this news!(talk about intuition)

    This seems like a total win for me.^^
    I was waiting for a new Park Shin-hye drama and then she gets cast with Yoon Shi-yoon?How awesome is that?^^
    He is a really great actor and I really hope they have some chemistry!
    Gosh I´m so excited for this one.;)
    And since I just loved Flower Boy Ramyun Shop and Shut up: Flower Boy Band I have high hopes for this one.
    tvN is seriously developing into my favorite broadcast station.xDD
    The Flower Boy dramas,Queen In-Hyun’s Man and Answer Me 1997 count to my all-time favorites!!^^

    YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY omg omg omg omg omg i started jumping up n down the moment i read the title hope its gud

  63. 63 Cindy

    I think PSH is a bit… overrrated?

    Don’t get me wrong. She is a okay actress, but nothing really wow to talk about.

    I watched YAB, Tried You’ve fallen for me, Tree of Heaven…

    and I think she was okay but at the same time I never saw her improving. Her acting is always the same.

    And she has this habit of pouting all the time too.

    The only drama I really liked her was in the special ”don’t worry I’m a ghost” I think she did well, didn’t pout all the time and didn’t Overacted too much.

    Is only me? Don’t worry I know she is a sweet and hardwoking girl in real life and dances well too, but her onscreen isn’t that good….

    • 63.1 oh well

      It’s called opinions.
      Sure all the girls must be overated when there are many people like them, and it’s perfectly OK for the guys
      It’s how Kpop works right?

      • 63.1.1 Cindy

        Whaaat? Girl you judged me from one comment like this?

        lol Of course guys are overated. Like for example Lee Min Ho, the guy is just okay at acting but receives so much praise from his fangirls…

        Kim Soo Hyun was good at Moon/Sun but didn’t deserve such huge award when there were better actors competing with him.

        I don’t care about Kpop.

        You say ”It’s called opinions. But you then talk as if I can’t have this opinion and judge me as a blind fangirl of a kpop idol guy.

        You are being butthurt.

        • 63.1.1.1 oh well

          Girl, I’m not judging you, I was just saying the fact that most guys can get away with everything and girls cant, in dramaland or Kpop… Girls always have it harder… There a few Shinhye’s haters in the last couples… to prove that fact.
          She is loved internationally but not really that big in Korea
          So I think it’s unappropriated to call her “overrated”
          And chill!
          It’s your opinion, and we have ours

    • 63.2 Celine

      sweetie, you hold the tv remote. you have the choice not to watch park shin hye.

      • 63.2.1 Cindy

        Hm, I was only saying my opinion here…

        And did I say I was going to watch her drama? No, I’ll of course try but not force myself if she is all the same again.

        It is just because I was excited about this drama, since I loved the other 2.

    • 63.3 jomo

      I think she is adorable – meaning personality – and bright, and cute; that carries through to the viewer.
      With the right director, she can be really good – as long as she is restrained a bit.

      • 63.3.1 Cindy

        yes she is very adorable.

        ”With the right director, she can be really good – as long as she is restrained a bit.”

        I just wished she picked a different role, she always pick the same kind of roles.

        Do you know a drama where she was really good?

        • 63.3.1.1 lol

          Have you tried her last movie Cyrano agency?
          Since she is still in college so she doesn’t do much in the recent years, like 1 drama/ year and another movie the next year. And she has many under her belt for a 22-yr-old girl :)
          She got award for Stairway to heaven, which is her first ever role and in Kimchee Radish Cubes as well, where she was pair with a guy who is 12 yrs older.
          She might not be the best actress and have a lot of room to improve but she certainly have amazing chemistry with all the guys she has worked with ( you have watch you’re beautiful and she was great with 3 of them at the same time). Plus she is the sweetest girl who all her co-stars adore and become her friends afterward. Plus girl can sing dance very well too… it’s hard to find a well-grounded artist like her
          Her new movie Dec 23 will come out in a few months as well, so look forward to it

        • 63.3.1.2 Rosemarry

          Hey dude, what do you think about Angelina Jolie?? She always pick her role as an AGENT in her movie. So what’s wrong IF park shin hye take some same roles?? Even angelina do that too. Pliss open minded!

        • 63.3.1.3 jomo

          I guess I would say in all her dramas there are moments where she has been very touching and effective and you think, “Wow! You DON’T really have to have that dumb look on your face all the time.”

          So you wonder why the director WANTS her to play the character goofy and one-note and inept when she is capable of so much more.

  64. 64 Anvesha

    I don’t dislike YSY.. and I like PSH. Can’t wait! I like the story as well (what can u do when every male kdrama lead has superior genes?), it’s like everything matches!!

  65. 65 Haruni

    OMG!!! Can’t WAit!!!!

  66. 66 Nokcha

    I was wondering when the next ‘flower boy’ drama would come out! I loved the first two. This sounds like a fun concept and the two actors should be great together! Really looking forward to this after the string of melos that have come out and are planning on coming out. I’m not a melo person…I like the rom/coms. I’ll be marking my calendar as well.

  67. 67 cruthy333

    So ridiculously excited for this!!! I love flower boys, boys next door, Yoon Shi Yoon AND Park Shin Hye. Hopefully they all mix well. Squee!!! Well, I guess I’ll just sit and twiddle my thumbs until January.

  68. 68 jyyjc

    Ugh why does this oh boy series gotta churn them out only once a year T__T? They should make a winter one and a summer one every year.

    • 68.1 ladida

      Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall. We need to see the Flower Boys in all possible environments. For scientific reasons. (Oh god, I need to get off this comments section.)

  69. 69 true2u

    Not a fan of PSH works, her romance scene makes me cringe. I have to admit she can act, so I’m willing to give this a go. I really hope she character is not WEAK!!!!!!!! I loathe weak female lead.

    • 69.1 lizzie

      her kisses are always so awkward, she has to improve her kissing scenes XD or pick a role where she isn’t the innocent girl who never kissed.

      • 69.1.1 True2u

        SOOO AWKWARD!!! It hurts me to see these lead actress acting like they don’t know what a real kiss is. I know they are innocent girl around, but my gosh not that many. They are practically in every drama. Both her and Koo Hye-Seon needs A LOT of work when it comes to romance scenes. I always feeling disgusted because they make it seems like I’ll watching some wrong by the expression that have when they are being kiss. Every time I find myself screaming, Girl he is HOT!! enjoy while you can, but sadly they don’t enjoy it.

        • 69.1.1.1 anicheung

          I haven’t seen her other co-stars in anything else, so I can’t judge their kissing scenes; but I agree that in the two series I’ve seen her in, all of her kissing scenes are the standard freeze-frame, lips-pressed together, simple kisses. Very awkward. HOWEVER, I saw the kisses in Me Too Flower and Yoon Shi Yoon owns those. So maybe he’ll be able to make up for Park Shin Hye’s awkwardness or bring out a feistier side in her. THAT would be awesome!

          I love Park Shin Hye mostly for her charm and acting because I didn’t really care for either of her two roles in You’re Beautiful or You’ve Fallen For Me, even though she did great. Funny how that works.

          *Crosses fingers* Maybe a combination of cable television and Yoon Shi Yoon will mean hot kissing scenes and show us a whole new side of Park Shin Hye?

  70. 70 Katherine

    As soon as I heard the news I was sold LOL. Don’t even care what the premise was cause I’ve been dying to see Park Shin Hye on-screen again & it just got better with Yoon Shi Yoon.

  71. 71 ladida

    I am SO EXCITED for this, I cannot even contain myself. I read the news this morning and literally jumped out of bed and did a happy dance. I adore both these actors, and I’m ready for all the cuteness and hilarity! Bring. It. On.

  72. 72 Celine

    I can’t wait. I miss Park Shin Hye. Just love this girl….simply gorgeous and oozing with appeal.

    I think these two work together as ambassadors of Korean Food for the Hungry International.

  73. 73 seara

    -mark my calender -> done
    -reminder in HP -> done
    -free space in my HDD -> done
    Preparations done :)
    Shinhye!! ShiYoon!! Fighting!!

    Anyway, i’m still thinking about name this couple..
    “Goque”?? (GOdukmi-enriQUE) #LOL

  74. 74 MARICEL

    The best part of this post, apart from the news itself, it’s where you say “with enough acting skills to match their pretty faces”….i totally agree…PSH will be back…yay!!!

  75. 75 Liemkopi

    Finally a pairing (of actors) and drama that I’ll look forward to watch…..

  76. 76 DarknessEyes

    enrique?
    um just no.

    but on the up side, I am excited for this drama 😀

    i feel like i’ll end up marathoning this one in one go

  77. 77 Mar

    There is light at the end of my drama tunnel, thank goodness.

    I LOVE LOVE this kid. I might be the only one that actually really liked Me Too Flower, I almost feel it is under rated, loved the coverage of depression and other themes, loved the characters, well, except for the scary ass noona, biotch was cra cra, she was Dragon Lady Kang from BOF in the making. Shudder. And how can you not appreciate a kid that will start stripping his scrawny chicken chest body down in a police department all up on his crush like he’s got Bi Rain’s body and swag, omg that was frigging hilarious.

    PSH, I think she’s adorable but I am really hoping we can bypass the You’re Beautiful and Heartstrings type of character and have a more adult and cool character like in Cyrano, but that is probably too much to ask. If we can avoid the bulging eyeball kiss, that would probably satisfy me but that too is probably a pipe dream.

    I have hope with this show, as FBRS, for all its crazy and seeming fluff, really had some layers, and I’m hoping PSH’s character will be doing the rescuing, ala Yang Eun-bi.

    • 77.1 Mystisith

      I hope PSH character will be a bit like the female girl in the movie Chilling Romance with Lee Min-ki: Fire under the ice, asocial, maybe scared of something but with a heart big like “that” and a hidden strength.
      PS: The stripping scene in M2F is one of my fave drama scenes ever. Thrilling, hot, ridiculous, you name it.

    • 77.2 ladida

      Fellow Me Too Flower lover, hi! I think folks should give it another chance. The conversations, especially towards the beginning, were great, and I loved our two main characters. And if you look at it within the context of the other dramas Kim Do Woo has written it becomes even more satisfying.

    • 77.3 ladida

      Hmm, my comment keeps getting eaten. I hope this doesn’t post multiple times. If it does, sorry!

      Hi fellow Me Too Flower Lovers! We should have a club, lol. But yeah, I think folks should give it another chance. I loved how our leads navigated the challenges they were met with, the conversations were great, and when taken in the context of Kim Do Woo’s other works it becomes even more satisfying. I really, really hope this installment of the Oh Boy series does well.

      • 77.3.1 Mar

        Mystisith and ladida,

        What you guys said.

        I’m so marathoning it on winter break. Woot woot!

      • 77.3.2 quadra

        ladida,
        i was marathoning M2F last night (for the nth time) and BAM! this morning, i read this news. jumping-hopping-on-the-couch happy!!!
        love, love YSY .. when i see him, its like just seeing another pretty face but once he opened his mouth, the “darth vader voice”, I’m completely sold.

  78. 78 Eun

    Yeba!!! Dance around the room!!!

  79. 79 anicheung

    I was already sold on the post’s title! Yoon Shi Yoon and a Flower Boy Project. And Park Shin Hye! Yes! I LOVED the Oh Boy Project and loved the first two series. And I love both Yoon Shi Yoon and Park Shin Hye. They both have acting chops and charm and good looks.

    I’ve only seen Yoon Shi Yoon in Me Too, Flower; and while that series tanked, Yoon Shi Yoon still managed to hold it together as well as the writing allowed him to and he was awesome. And Park Shin Hye… I’ve been amazed by how charming she is since I saw both You’re Beautiful and Heartstrings.

    I am on this train AND I’m circling a new date in my calendar. January 7th can’t come fast enough!

    • 79.1 Sajen

      wait did you like Heartstrings I thought I was the only one

      • 79.1.1 anicheung

        I have conflicting feelings about Heartstrings… and it holds a special place in my heart mostly because it was one of the first few K-drama series I watched. I liked the concept of Heartstrings, I liked where the story was headed, but I didn’t like how the last half of it ended up concluding. I feel like things lost steam after the mid-way point, but I still enjoyed the series a lot because I’m really big on youth drama and light-hearted romances.

        That and I suffered the second-lead syndrome after watching You’re Beautiful and so was aching for some good chemistry between Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye when Heartstrings came around. At the very least, those two make a really awesome onscreen couple.

  80. 80 JC

    I hated Ramyun Shop…
    Absolutely 100% adored Shut Up…
    I’m really hoping this one will be another winner, especially since the lead pair is adorable~ and Park Shin Hye doesn’t seem to have done a real drama in ages. Fingers crossed!

  81. 81 Jeannette

    I’m so excited! Seriously!

  82. 82 fishy2love

    Yeah! I’m super super looking forward to this! I sincerely hope that it’ll be good because I enjoyed the first two dramas from the ‘Oh Boy’ series A LOT (esp. ‘Shut Up: Flower Boy Band’)

    Thank you so much for the news, it totally made my day! =D

  83. 83 Sajen

    “It’s an upbeat, lively story that centers around an “urban Rapunzel” type character, played by Park Shin-hye, who is locked up in her lonely tower. Figuratively speaking—at least I hope.”

    I hope it’s literal I’ve seen figurative Rapunzel countless times not only that I hope he has to climb her hair to see her and free her from the tower.

  84. 84 Steamy Bun

    Enrique?? Bwahahahha!!! This is going to be GREAT! Unlike most people I have not jumped on the Flower Boy bandwagon (I tried Ramyun Shop but the female lead was way too annoying), but the premise of this sounds good. I adore Yoon Shi Yoon (he pretty much has my eternal love from starring in Baker King, one of my all-time favorites despite its flaws) and although PSH’s character in You’re Beautiful annoyed me a lot at times, I do think she’s a good actress and so cute too.
    And I agree about their pairing and the story just seeming correct for them at this point in their careers. A sweet and youthful romance is just what both need! So excited for this show now!!

    • 84.1 lizzie

      I think you should give Shut Up flower boy band a chance, still one of my favs of this year.

  85. 85 red

    Omg I literally can not wait!!! Yoon shi yoon impressed me big time on me too flower and I’ve always loved park shin hye plus the story sounds awesome.

    OK when PSH was playing Go Mi Nam in you’re beautiful she looked like a femalish version of lee Jun ki, and yoon shi yoon looks like junki well! So these two would look adorable together!

  86. 86 syeqin

    omo..i just imagined if the flower boy is Lee Hongki..donow..but lets pair hongki and shinhye together this time..i want the friendship chemistry…kekeke..

  87. 87 momosa

    Woah, both young actors with acting chops! Interesting story line, surely a lot of kissing as well (I hope)!! No reason not to watch!!

  88. 88 neener

    TOTALLY excited for this! I mean I get to see her in another drama and plus the two series were one of my faves too!

  89. 89 Dita

    Kyaaaaa….
    <3 <3 <3 TvN

  90. 90 Abbie

    Just the other day, I was wondering when tvN would do their next Flower Boy show, and I am so glad it’s coming! But January seems so far away!

    I like Yoon Shi-yoon, but I absolutely love Park Shin-hye! I cannot wait to see them together!

  91. 91 Village Mrembo

    As Noh Hong Chul would say…NAITHEU!!!

  92. 92 Michelle

    haven’t seen Shut Up yet (but need to) and will be looking forward to seeing this. YOON SHI-YOON was all that needed to be said, lol!

  93. 93 kirst3n

    Holy, really really REALLY excited for this one. January, come soon!

  94. 94 Joybells

    Im so excited!!!!! i love both the lead actors and praying for an equally amazing supporting cast. FBRS & SUFBB both were awesome shows and so with high hopes im praying this show to be equally awesome.

  95. 95 bevvy

    omggggg!!! my two FAVE PEOPLE!! (screamss) 😀 I cant wait for this — i’m already hooked w/ the story line. 2013 is gonna start w/ the BEST! woo!

  96. 96 nasus

    love the casts!! couldn’t be more excited… *circles date in red ink* *decorates with flowers and hearts* Hahaha.. JB, you never failed to crack me up, but that’s the way! i guess i should get myself a 2013 calendar then..

  97. 97 Riri

    Holy fuck. This sounds amazing. I have been a HUGE fan of the flower boy series and I know that it’ll be good. It’s always good. And this couple, makes me more excited. I love them individually and OMG I AM JUST SO EXCITED! I can’t wait to see Shi Yoon in a more bubbly drama and Shin Hye is always good in these as well. AH SERIOUSLY I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything about this so far

  98. 98 yoonsy

    If TvN does it..i hope it will be more like Answer Me 1997 vibe… and put aside the wishy washy heroine and exaggerated cuteness that prone to annoyment.. (as in PSH’s You’re beautiful and that Fallen-thingy drama)

    Please..please..

  99. 99 Celine

    so far, tvN is doing great in their choices.

    looking forward to this drama, and i’m so happy that dramabeans highlighted it in red with flowers and hearts – meaning to say, she will recap it…sooooooooooooo excited……

  100. 100 Suzi Q

    Loved the 2 previous Flower Boys dramas.

    I think the pairing of PSH and YSY is cute, but can’t imagine them in romantic scenes together kissing. Awkward mental pictures…

    I enjoyed YSY in Baker King, but his role in M2F was strangely miscast. Although PSH was great in YAB, Heartstrings was a bore.

    Hopefully, the webtoon sounds cute and interesting, so I hope this third series is a winner for both of them.It’s been quite a while so I ‘m glad they’re both back together in a new comedy!
