Flower Boys Next Door (South Korea, 16 episodes)
THIS Korean drama is one of those quirky rom-coms populated by all manner of geeky characters.
Copy editor Go Dok-mi (Park Shin-hye) is the dreamy sort who can’t bear to step out of her apartment. Instead, she uses a pair of binoculars to spy on her handsome neighbours.
Webtoon artist Oh Jin-rak (Kim Ji-hoon) fancies her and keeps leaving a carton of milk with a post-it attached by her door everyday, but just cannot muster the courage to approach her.
Genius video game developer Enrique Geum (Yoon Shi-yoon) is a cheery fellow who is obsessed with bringing happiness into everyone’s lives.
Foodie Watanabe Ryu (Mizuta Kouki) is a Japanese chef who moved to Korea to learn about the cuisine.
How will fate bring these geeks together?
