Ramyun Shop gets reimagined in novel form

It’s often the other way around, but following the success of tvN’s romantic-comedy drama Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, the story will be reborn in novel form.

What makes this funny is that the drama is already (loosely) based on a novel, called Sweet and Sour Bakery. That book was different enough in setting and characters, but you can see how the drama got its inspiration from its depiction of teenage boys cast adrift, each separated from his family in a different way, coming together and finding a workplace family.

So… you’ve got a book based on a drama based on a book. Let’s contract out the drama to follow, while we’re at it: Chi-soo v.2.0, here we come! Or maybe it could take a page out of Secret Garden’s book and produce a radio show, a manhwa, and possibly a stage play to boot.

Hey, you can never have too much ramyun. Or is it the flower boys who are the draw? Hm, I wonder.

That's cool! And unusual. If it comes to America, I'd read it. But I doubt it will.

Wow, really? huh...

well, it must be wildly popular. :D

I must say, the drama was great but would I read the book? I don't know...

It's thanks to GF and JB that I was able to get some of the witty lines/puns/meaning/etc. of the story otherwise I would have thought it was just another rom-com drama.

That poster is such a bait and switch ad because we all know who she ends up choosing.

*hugs Panda and takes him home for herself* ^_~

Not too impressed by a book..... books based on films/dramas are never any good (the other way around it does work at times).

A manhwa, on the other hand, I could see work (and work superbly) because the vibe of the drama was very manhwa-y...

*gasp* you don't mean fanfiction, though, I hope.

OK, OK, I know the novel will NOT be like fanfics in the slightest. But still, don't say things like that. So many BRILLIANT writing came out based on films/dramas/TV/whatever inspires.

Considering some of the merchandising tie-ins from previous dramas (mostly costume jewelry & toys) I'm surprised they're not selling copies of Ba Wool's stuffed "girlfriend" bear. Or Flower Boy plungers!

I think i now understand why there r actually people that just didnt get the whole City Hunter hype. Its the same for me and this drama, try as i did, the Scheduler and all, i just didnt get it. The lead girl annoyed me to hell and back, the flower boys looked waay too old to be teenagers, the teacher-student romance just creeped me out...need i go on?!!
