Flower Boy Next Door episodes 1, 2, 3 & 4

Yoon Shi Yoon as Enrique Geum and Park Shin Hye as Go Dok Mi ahjumma 
First impressions of Flower Boy Next Door based upon these episodes? It's cute, funny, and a bit weird. At first I was confused by the premise, and there seemed to be a lot of different story lines and characters popping up. And, as with the other tvN's Oh! Boy dramas (Flower Boy Ramyun Shop and Shut Up Flower Boy Band), the episodes are only 45 minutes long so there is quite a bit of information and action packed into each one. In the beginning we met Enrique, the adorable and chatty creative director from Spain, Go Dok Mi, the sad and beautiful girl who doesn't leave her apartment, Han Tae Joon is (Lee Jong Hyuk) the flower boy that Dok Mi spies on from her window, Oh Jin Rak (Kim Ji Hoon) who lives in the apartment next to Dok Mi and has liked her for 3 years, and a laundry list of other strange, but funny characters that live or revolve around the apartment buildings.

I look forward to seeing how Enrique will use his extreme extroversion to counter act Dok Mi's just as extreme introversion. Clearly Dok Mi tries hard to tell herself that she is perfectly happy living without human contact in the confinement of her apartment while using insane ways to save on utility costs (by never flushing her toilet and hugging water bottles to stay warm... sure whatever you say crazy ahjumma), but based upon her flashbacks of being tortured by the other kids as a school girl, she is in need of some affection. If my senses are correct, I imagine these two will end up together. That is my early guess. But, as us drama addicts know, dramas can start great with certain relationships forming then take a turn for the stupid. I hope this drama continues on its cute and funny path.

I also want to point out the obvious for a moment. Yoon Shi Yoon is so freaking adorable! I want to believe that he is as charismatic as Enrique in reality. Plus, I personally think that he rivals Song Joong Ki in facial cuteness. Joong Ki and Shi Yoon offer different types of charm, yes, but they both have perfect faces.
