Flower Boy Ramen Shop (2011)

Directed By: Jung Jung-hwa

It’s been a long time so my memory is vague, but it’s about a woman surrounded by cute guys working at a ramen shop.

Warning: Spoilers!

Back in 2011, this Korean drama was really hyped up on Dramafever and I was really excited to watch it because of the flower boy male cast (and also the story is set at a ramen shop and I love ramen). I remembered I stayed up until 2 am to finish this drama despite having a 9 am class to go to the next day. When I was done with it, I was mad at the ending because the second lead was a much more suitable match for the main girl instead of the first leading man. Cha Chi-soo (Jung Il-woo) is a bit too immature and childish and always got jealous over Yang Eun-bi (Lee  Chung-ah) and Choi Kang-jyuk’s (Lee Ki-woo) friendship. To be honest, I don’t think Yang Eun-bi and Cha Chi-soo’s relationship would last due to his stubbornness and immaturity. At the end, I felt really bad for Choi Kang-jyuk because he was literally the epitome of the perfect man: charming, helpful, and kind. Yet, in the end, he didn’t get the girl.

It’s up to you if you want to watch this drama, but I was personally disappointed in the ending because I don’t think the main leads should be together. Yang Eun-bi and Cha Chi-soo had better chemistry in my opinion.

  1. I’m currently watching Goblin, a drama that I had been looking forward to, but….that one so far has not disappointed me at all. In fact it is even better than I expected: highly recommend that one😀 Great post, but it is always a shame when something that you have been looking forward to disappoints in the end. Well luckily there are still plenty of good dramaseries heading our, that hopefully won’t disappoint.

  2. I felt the same way about this drama. I just couldn’t feel the chemistry at all with the main leads. Normally even if I like the second lead better I am usually ok with the first lead getting the girl. Not in this case though. -_-

  3. It’s always girl win by bad guys in kdrama as you see flower boy ramyun shop, boys over flowers and others. The drama where I have watched good guy win over the girl is ‘dream high’ must watch drama Kim soo hyun, Suzy, IU and techyon in it!
