Flower of Evil Kdrama

The Flower of Evil is a suspense thriller story that revolves around Do Hyun Su, who falls in love with a homicide detective and marries her. Do Hyun Su is an emotionless Psychopath who assumes the identity of Baek Hee Sung to escape a witch hunt from his past.

He tries his best to hide his past from his wife, but then the series of murders start to unravel and his lies start to catch up with him and begins a journey to uncover the lies and prove his innocence to his wife and daughter.

Flower of Evil tests relationships, love, and faith. Lee Joon Gi plays the role so beautifully that viewers are bound to get emotional. Actress Moon Chae Won beautifully portrayed the role of  Cha Ji Won who was wrapped around her husband and had blind faith.  

What does the Flower of evil mean?

Flower of Evil illustrates the character of Do Hyun Su played by Lee Joon Gi that is not black or white. It cannot be defined as a purely evil or a good character. Do Hyun So’s character had multiple layers of shades and that’s how his character is best defined.

He might be a psychopath, but can a psychopath really love someone? Can they really care about anyone other than themselves? The drama showed burning questions and highlighted how Do Hyun So’s character suffer unjustly throughout his life, and his wife was the only place that he can call home.

The struggle and difficulties faced by Hun So and Ji Won were heartbreaking, but nevertheless brings out lots of questions. Even Ji Won learned to let go of her old world and started to accept the truth after destroying the shell she built for herself.

Does Flower of Evil have a happy ending?

Well, Justice is served and Do Hyun Su gets cleared of the false charges. But there’s a catch! Everything gets reset for Hyun So and Ji Won. It was sad, but the ending was not quite there.

It could have been better, but it wasn’t worse. The ending is sort of happy and you might wanna take the ending with a pinch of salt. The ending tried to be realistic, but it can’t be called a happy ending per se. Who knows, perhaps a season 2!!!    

Is Flower of Evil done?

As much as it breaks our hearts, Flower of Evil has finished airing. The last episode aired on 23rd September 2020. The series was a guilty pleasure for most fans and on Thursdays and Fridays, the day was officially booked for Flower of Evil.

Who kills in Flower of Evil?  Did Do Hyun Su kill anyone?

The main culprit was Do Hyun Su’s dad and Baek Hee Sung who were both emotionally deranged psychopaths who killed for the thrills. Spoiler alert!!! If it’s Do Hyun Su, he didn’t kill a single soul. So, no, he might have hurt people in an unfair advantage, but he didn’t kill anyone.  

"I want you to think about what you really want. Then you can decide so that you will not end up hating yourself."

Who is the villain in Flower of Evil?

It’s definitely Baek Hee Sung, the real guy. That doesn’t come off as much a surprise, but the role was written in such a manner, that it was the only suspect left. It wasn’t that hard to guess. The actor did an amazing job portraying his role. The role wasn’t easy and he played with no flaw whatsoever.  

Is Flower of Evil scary?

That depends on your personal appetite and definition of scary. There are some scenes you cannot prepare your heart to watch it. The creepy scenes are quite scary, but overall Flower of Evil is not that scary. Some scenes might not be for the faint of the heart, but the drama is highly enjoyable. Flower of Evil is highly recommended and missing this drama is a sin in itself!
