Me Too, Flower gets a last-minute postponement

Phew! MBC’s new drama Me Too, Flower! can sigh in relief at their temporary reprieve, which somehow feels a lot like a stay of execution. The miniseries was all set to air in two days, but announced at its Monday press conference that its airdate has been pushed back one week and will instead premiere next Wednesday.

To which I say: Thank goodness, because if ever a drama needed more time to get ready, it’s Me Too, Flower. And also: What is your deal, MBC? You make this decision TWO DAYS before showtime? I know I sound like a broken record, but this is a move I’ve felt MBC shouuld’ve made weeks ago, and it’s amazing that it took them that long to make the decision. They had already bought a week of filler time by re-airing some old one-acts, so clearly they knew this was always a possibility.

It also makes me wonder: Did MBC think they could actually pull it off, only to realize at this late date that they couldn’t? That does not bode well in any circumstance. Note that this added postponement means that the drama would have been delayed even if Can’t Lose, the preceding drama, had gotten its full extension.

I can’t help feeling like this drama is a trainwreck in the making, which I recognize is an excessively dark outlook to have before it even begins. I’m hoping it surprises me, and maybe it’ll manage to pull out some magic fairy dust and make the most of its extra time. I’m just not holding my breath waiting for that to happen.

I do hope the show exceeds my (admittedly low) expectations. I’m ambivalent on the cast, but when we’re talking about the writer of My Name Is Kim Sam-soon and What’s Up Fox, who’s coming back to drama writing after a five-year break, I can’t help but wish for all things awesome. (The PD has Stormy Lovers, Queen of Reversals, Merry Vs. Daegu Battle, and Sweet Spy on his resumé.)

All things considered, It’s hard to dismiss this drama’s troubled history, starting even before production began. There were rumors wondering at the lack of advance filming time before Kim Jae-won had to drop out due to injury, which then led to the last-minute scramble to find a new hero in Yoon Shi-yoon, the Can’t Lose extension, the re-runs padding the schedule, and now this.

Me Too, Flower! will now premiere on Wednesday, November 9.

Below are the cast members of the drama at the October 31 press conference, Lee Jia, Yoon Shi-yoon, Seo Hyo-rim, Han Go-eun, Lee Ki-kwang, and Jo Min-ki:

It seems to reflect the inane kdrama philosophy that rich boys have eccentric, curly hair.

This just seems ripe for another actor/actress flame out a la Han Ye Seul. The writing is pretty much on the wall for this to have all the failings that come with the live-shoot schedules, and this is even before the show's started. They are going to need every ounce of luck they possess.

Look at Lee Jia's expressions in all the above pics, esp. in the official poster. That enthusiasm is overwhelming, isn't it?

Lee Jia looks way older standing nxy to Yoon Shi-yoon. Cldn't they hv cast somebody older? Or replace Lee Jia. Sigh. I was so looking forward to the drama previously, forKim Jae-won, and the writer.

In these pics, I don't see the age gap much. The way YSY has his hair styled makes him look like a guy in his late 20s who is losing his hair and is desperately trying to cover up the bald spots. Lee Jia's hairstyle here makes her look younger.

Yoon Shi Yoon looks weird in the photos >.< Hope he'll do well in this drama though.

Im eyeing lee ki kwang for this. I liked him on my princess. I expected him to have more cute scenes there but sadly he didn't had too much exposure.

Is Lee Jia wearing contacts? Her eyes always bugged me cause I could never tell if they were real or fake.

But yea the show looks alright. I might tune in. I like SHR and I'm hoping she gets the lead in her next project.

I know that Yoon Shi Yoon had a nose job when he was in Baker KTG but in these pix he looks like he had a major face lift that makes his eyes more slanted upward and his ears move way back. Or he could have his jaw line ahve like some of these actors had done these days. Or it is my imagination that he could have look different with the perm hair.

I still see no chemistry from the leads this far a stretch working together, filming late nights, or whatever. Kinda rare in dramaland to find this disconnecting vibe.

Stay positive MTF casts. Aja-aja, fighting!

lee jia really doesn't look good in these photos. the first one is particularly unflattering.. i loved kim sam soon so much though, that i might have to give this a chance. but i'm wary :/

I think everyone looks fine and Lee Jia's dress is really nice and modern chic not to mention her studded heels(!). I stopped making drama predictions a long time ago. There's really no way to ever know how good or bad a show will be. I hope they do well though and give us a good a drama.

I agree with those who think there is no way to predict how good a show is until we actually watch it. Yeah Lee Jia might be anxious as she did not smile as much, and YSY looked different, but we do not know the characters they are playing. Maybe their characters desire them to look that way.

Kim Sam Soon writer and the director have good record, so let's give the drama a chance.

LJA looks like she didn't want to be at the post conference. She's looking REALLY excited (sarcasm much??) I think she already knew the future of her comeback drama is doom. I think the red looks good on her, she should be the antiheroine.
And wtf YSY, I'm speechless.

actually I'm not really sure about Yoon Shi Yoon, cuz she definitely looks younger than LJA. But the PD and writers sounds to be competent one, so we'll see....

I remember in Baker King, the reception is something like this at first, because they are casting newbies, 99% said NO to YSY being casted as the lead, only the writer as the part of the crew said yes. It's funny how Yoon SI Yoon proved them wrong and he was nominated top actor in Baeksang just after a year from his debut! Real actors can only do that, not the so so ones like idol actors

STUPID COMMENT AND REVIEW!!

YOON SI YOON is AMAZING ACTOR and he proved himself how he can play so many characters and differnet types of peronalities!!!

also THIS DRAMA IS AMAZNG!
ME TOO FLOOWER rocked!
and I wouldn't watch it with the actor who was firstly appointed for the main guy role, because his acting CAN'T COMPARE to YOON SI YOON's AMAZING ACTING!

also the story is beautiful, and so many emotions which main roles give trough the drama *.*

I also like the pariring! they really have chemistry for this drama!

who can't see how ME TOO FLOWER is AMAIZNG DRAMA
he/she is really stupid, blind or mentaly freaked out..so please go for doctor!!

:)

what must be MAIN POINT FOR WATCHERS of drama is : STORY, ACTING, MUSIC, SCENES, EMOTIONS etc..

NOT PERSONAL MATTERS OF ACTOR! *....*
SO LOOOW AND GROOOS FROM YOU PEOPLE >,>
