Delightful series mixes comedy and romance
12 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Flower Boy Ramen Shop is a delightful mix of comedy and romance with an ensemble cast that gelled throughout the series. The clever writing embeds metaphors and weaves themes offering the viewer substantial episodes, not just fluff.

The male lead of kdramas are crucial and Jung Il-woo as Cha Chi-soo perfectly embodies the emotionally immature rich pretty boy. There is excellent chemistry with the female lead Lee Chung- ah as Yang Eun-bi, they sizzle on screen.

The second male lead, Lee Ki- woo as Choi Kang-hyuk, is a mature counterpoint and provides a true alternative for the female.

Rounding out the ensemble is the thoughtful, sensitive Woo Hyun-woo (Jo Yoon-woo) and the hothead Kim Ba-wool (Park Min-woo), another point/counterpoint pair.

Never having encountered love, Cha Chi-soo's physical pains associated with love, jealousy, longing are spot-on and refreshing, you know what he's feeling as he struggles to figure it out. Yang Eun-bi's fear of the 6 year age gap, her desire to avoid another tempestuous relationship, and her initial limited trust in Cha Chi-soo are hurdles she sorts out during the series.

The last episode is particularly satisfying, a rare occurrence in kdramas.

What worked in this series: clever writing, sizzling chemistry, strong ensemble cast

What may not work for you: toilet humor (integral and in your face), if you don't buy the charm of Cha Chi-soo and prefer the strong quiet Choi Kang-hyuk you may not be satisfied, the second female lead (Ho Soo as Yoon So-yi) was pretty fluff that didn't engage (limited growth of this character).
