37. Shut Up Flower Boy Band 닥치고 꽃미남 밴드 (2012) Korean

Sung Joon, L, Jung Ui Chul, Jo Bo Ah

Drama Rating: 7/10     Neck Score: A

The darkest of all the Flower Boy series.  Obviously the really hot flower boys are the band.  It's even called Eye Candy.  Also the girl is probably the least important person in this show, as opposed to the other shows which are centered on her.  This is about the band and all the trials of being high schoolers that don't fit in, first because they are poor bad boys in an underground band suddenly going to a fancy rich school when their school closes down, and then when they are scouted into an entertainment agency and have their debut, they are once again not fitting in as they are now celebrities.  It's a story about working hard, following dreams, and protecting your friends.  Also, don't get attached to Joo Byung Hee (Lee Min Ki).  I did and was heart broken when he suddenly died.  Yeah, that's right, I spoiled it.  He dies in episode 2.  But I was so confused when I thought he was the main dude and then all the classic main couple tropes started happening between the chick and Sung Joon.  He was the hottest too, but he died.  I did say it was dark.  The other worst part of the show is when they cut Sung Joon's hair.  It was so wild and great before and they ruined it.  But the OST is amazing.  I love the OST way more than the show itself (which I did like, it's just rather heavy for a Flower Boy show).  Especially these songs: Jaywalking & Wake Up.  Also Kwak Jung Wook amazes me by playing a preppy rich smart kid from the rival band at the rich school and is hilarious.  Also a 100% polar opposite from his bad boy character in School 2013.  Wow.
