Lee Jun-ki and Moon Chae-won’s picture perfect family cracks in new Flower of Evil teaser
In the latest Flower of Evil teaser, Lee Jun-ki (Lawless Attorney) feeds his daughter, while his wife, played by Moon Chae-won (Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter), watches adoringly.
This family of three seems loving and harmonious on the surface, but dark secrets are lurking beneath. The suspense drama stars Lee Jun-ki as a man who has played a part for his entire marriage. His costar Moon Chae-won plays his detective wife, and she’s been happy throughout their fourteen-year-long marriage. But that happiness is put into jeopardy when she begins to have doubts her husband’s identity and starts to suspect that her beloved husband may in fact be a serial murderer.
The teaser shows an affectionate, intimate family breakfast moment with a beautiful, scenic mountain view. But suddenly the glass cracks and reveals an interrogation room containing Lee Jun-ki and Moon Chae-won.
Moon Chae-won narrates: “I didn’t know anything about the man I loved.” The adoring wife Moon Chae-won looks shocked to see a handcuffed Lee Jun-ki in the interrogation room staring back coldly at her. Detective Moon Chae-won glares at suspected criminal Lee Jun-ki, and Lee Jun-ki narrates: “A man who pretended to be human. A woman who loved even the dangerous side. Flower of Evil premieres in July.”
As a huge fan of Lee Jun-ki, I have a lot of thoughts: He doesn’t have the best track record picking projects. I am praying to the drama gods this doesn’t turn out like Criminal Minds because Moon Chae-won and Lee Jun-ki had almost negative chemistry in that drama, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t their fault; it had a dull procedural format and a duller script. This double identity character harks back to Lee Jun-ki’s Time Between Dog and Wolf days, and I’m all about it. I also wouldn’t mind if he went all out American Psycho on us. I just hope that this drama is worthy of his talents.
Upcoming tvN Wednesday-Thursday drama Flower of Evil will begin airing on July 22.
