Knight Flower Korean Drama Review

Knight Flower is a historical comedy drama about a woman (Honey Lee) who lives a double life as the virtuous widow who is the daughter-in-law of a noble family by day and a masked woman secretly taking care of others at night.

Honey Lee plays Cho Yeo Hwa. She has spent the last 15 years as a widow dedicated to honoring her deceased husband and trying to please her noble family. But at night, she dawns a mask and helps those in need.

Lee Jong Won is Park Su Ho. He is an officer in the Capital Guard with a traumatic past. He encounters Yeo Hwa and realizes there is more to her than meets the eye.

Next, there is Lee Ki Woo as Park Yoon Hak. He is the brother of Su Ho and the Royal Defense Secretary who works closely with the King.

Then we have Kim Sang Joon as Seok Ji Seung. He is Yeo Hwa’s father-in-law and the powerful Left State Minister.

Knight Flower was a fun historical comedy drama. It delivers a refreshing story of a widow-turned-masked hero that mixes humor with drama and action. There’s also a mystery element that keeps our characters busy.

The entire cast was fantastic. They brought the comedic timing as well as serious acting chops for the more dramatic portions of the series. They really brought to life a group of dynamic and interesting characters.

The show explores issues facing widows at the time which trapped women into a life with very few options. It was sad to see what Yeo Hwa had to go through day in and day out as a prisoner of society. But we see her take her life into own hands and live in a way that is meaningful and important. Honey Lee really made her a multi-dimensional character that you couldn’t help but root for.

It was also my first time seeing Lee Jong Won, and he really impressed me as Su Ho. He’s a calm and collected character that could come off as cold, but Lee Jong Won really brought nuance to him. It was evident from early on what a caring man he was, and it was easy to see through his subtle facial expressions as well as his actions.

And I have to point out another fantastic performance by Kim Sang Joong who played our villain, the Left State Minister. He really made this an interesting character with his ability to play him as such a “nice and caring” man when interacting with his family but brings the intensity we would expect from him when making power plays. Wonderful performance!

There is low-key romance running in the background involving Yeo Hwa and Su Ho. They are both very upright people, and there are quite a few barriers to their relationship. This results in a more subtle romance of caring, protection, and team work. I would have liked to have seen more of this romance, but I did enjoy their relationship.

Overall, Knight Flower was a great watch. The plot developments were pretty good throughout, though some episodes felt a bit uneven in pacing. The story was well-done with a couple of twists I didn’t see coming. I didn’t get super emotionally invested in this one, but it was quite fun, and I don’t have any major complaints.

My Rating: 7/10

    I kept hoping that her Orabeoni would make a dramatic entrance by the end of Episode 10. Still, a fun drama with an excellent performance by Lee Ha Nee.
