Flower Boy Next Door
, a new romantic comedy based on the webtoon I Peep At Him Everyday (나는 매일 그를 훔쳐본다), will be available soon on Drama Fever! Most of the webtoon's characters also appear in the drama, along with some new characters to make the love triangle more interesting. Let’s walk through the main characters so that you have a better understanding when you start watching the drama.
A so-called “urban Rapunzel” played by Park Shin Hye
who voluntarily locks herself in her room, Ko Dok Mi's name literally means “lonely beauty.” The only way she keeps in touch with the outside world is by stalking her handsome neighbor, Tae Joon. However, everything gets ruined when her new neighbor Enrique Geum moves into the neighborhood and finds out about Dok Mi’s somewhat creepy hobby.
Oh Jin Rak, who wasn’t in the original webtoon, is added as Dok Mi’s next door neighbor. Played by Kim Ji Hoon
, Jin Rak is an unsuccessful webtoon artist leading a nocturnal life. Feeling sympathetic to his lonely neighbor, he secretly cheers Dok Mi with post-its. Later, he realizes the main character of his webtoon resembles Dok Mi.
Han Tae Joon (Kim Jung San
), aka Doctor Han, is a perfect human being: he is smart and handsome. He is totally unaware of the fact that he’s been stalked by his own neighbor—until his cousin moves in with him.
Yoo Dong Hoon (Go Kyung Pyo
), the freeloading roommate of Jin Rak, thinks of himself as a fashion star. He considers all other fashionable men, including Enrique and Watanabe, as his competitors. But unfortunately, Enrique and Watanabe don’t seem to care.
This cute Japanese guy, Watanabe (Mizuta Kouki
), came to Korea to explore Korean culture. He works at a restaurant nearby and participates in every single community event. He often runs into his neighbor Dong Hoon who keeps coming to the restaurant in order to avoid Jin Rak.
Those are just a few of the characters you'll meet in this delightful new drama. Who's excited to watch?
