All hands on deck! Lee Joon Gi (Lawless Lawyer) has finally signed on to his next drama! And he will even be reuniting with his Criminal Minds co- star Moon Chae Won (Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter) who will also be starring.
Now, Criminal Minds didn’t work out so great for me. It’s the only drama of Lee Joon Gi’s that I didn’t care for, and I thought he and Moon Chae Won were terribly underutilized. But this is a dream duo, and now they have a chance for a better outing this time. I’m so excited for this reunion!
Their upcoming Korean drama is called Flower of Evil and is a romance thriller about an emotionless psychopath who changes his identity and tries to leave his dark past behind him that marries a homicide detective who is trying to uncover the truth. Lee Joon Gi will play the psychopath with Moon Chae Won as the detective. The drama comes from the writer of Naked Fireman and the PD of Mother.
Well, this should be a fitting role for Lee Joon Gi to take on! I know he can handle the complexity of a role like this. And it should be interesting to see the contrast between his current married life and his dark past. Moon Chae Won seems like a great fit for a detective trying to solve the mystery surrounding her husband. I can’t wait!
Flower of Evil is planning to air in the summer of 2020 on tvN.
