In life, we can’t always take things at face value and that’s one simple way to summarise the plot of Flower Of Evil. The series is a lot more complex than that, of course. It’s a suspense melodrama revolving around a detective and her husband who is living under another person’s identity to hide who he was as well as what he did.

It’s a programme about deception, trust, family, and marriage—forming the core themes of Flower Of Evil. Will Moon Chae-Won be able to track down Lee Joon-Gi’s past? We’ll have to watch to find out. There will definitely be a lot of conversations surrounding dual identities. How would you feel if you found out that your partner of 14 years isn’t who you think he/she is? From the images, you will also notice that their daughter would play an integral part in how the story unfolds.

This will be Lee Joon-Gi’s first drama project since Lawless Lawyer in 2018 and Moon Chae-Won’s first since Tale Of Fairy (also in 2018). Here’s a fun fact: her last three television series have all been with tvN.
