Korean Title: 꽃미남 라면가게/ Kkotminam Ramyeongage
English Name: Flower Boy Ramen Shop
Genre: Comedy, Romance
No. Of episodes: 16
This Drama tells the story of Yang EunBi (Lee Chung Ah) an ex volleyball player preparing for her civil service exam to become a teacher and Cha ChiSoo, (Jung Il Woo) the arrogant son of one of the rich’s business men in Korea who strangely falls in love with Yang EunBi without realising it. They both end up working in a ramen shop for the lazy Choi Kang Hyuk, (Lee Ki Woo) who takes over the ramen shop after EunBi’s father passes away. The drama deals with the ‘Flower Boys’ who live with EunBi and work at the Ramen Shop.
This was definitely one of the most talked about Dramas when it aired in regards to the actors and the storyline itself and was certainly one of my favourites from 2011. It’s an upbeat drama, filled with brilliant OST songs and entertaining anime like humour which will keep you smiling, if not laughing throughout.
As the drama unfolds you find yourself emotionally invested in the characters as they reveal refreshing new sides of themselves. The characters in the drama are so endearing and their interactions with each other are just so funny. You can easily tell that the cast had very good chemistry with one another which paid of tremendously on screen.
If I had to choose a word to describe this drama with I would say ‘addictive’. From EunBi’s too tempered, old fashioned character, Kang Hyuk’s total ‘flower boy’ looks and deep care for EunBi, ChiSoo’s naive and bratty personality, the other flower boys adding fun and laughter to the storyline and not to forget the love triangle that develops half way through the drama..It was all just so good!! I thoroughly enjoyed this drama and like any fan girl was totally left wanting another season at the end!!

Omo, Chugha-hae wuri Minaz on your first official post :D !!!!
The following is just summary of my personal opinion on the drama and characters:
At first glance it’s similar to BOF because it is a typical korean rom-con with FOUR flower boys but it has it’s own uniqueness since this drama has a touch of anime quirkiness and adorable characters.
Having FOUR flower boys, this drama definitely has a LOT of ottokhae moments (i.e fan girl squeals).
Mr. Mcdreamy or Mr Lampost or Choi Kang Hyuk (aka Lee Ki Woo) has a lot of romantic scenes in this drama, in my opinion. There are also a lot of bell-chiming moments (ref from the drama) of Cha Chisoo (aka Jung II Woo) ^_^.
Another flower boy from the drama, although not my type yet adorable, is the character called Kim Ba-ol! His character is so entertaining to watch and adorable!
Last but not least is this shy flower boy, called Woo Hyun Woo (aka Jo Yoon Woo). I found the bromance between him and Kim Ba-ol really cute :p!.
I absolutely love Eun Bi’s character for her feistiness at necessary times while showing vulnerability sometimes, which makes her character more connected to the audience. I like the fact that she is a go-getter rather than a passive typical Korean antagonist, which leaves the audiences with high blood pressure from frustration for her!!!
It was sad to say goodbye to this drama and I definitely will be the first in line to watch season 2 if they ever produce it!
Wuri Minaz, fighting <3 !!!
Hope to see many more posts from you :) x
