This time on “Would I Date Him?” I reflect upon the leading man from the series Flower of Evil.
Our candidate: Flower of Evil’s Do Hyun Soo portrayed by Lee Joon Gi, is a craftsman, husband and father whose life is built on lies.
Background. Do Hyun Soo is man with a hidden past and a manufactured present. As the truth is revealed, everything he holds dear is put in jeopardy.
LOYAL. He loved his wife. He loved his child. Believing himself incapable of love, he didn’t realize that his every action proclaimed his love for the women in his life.
PROTECTIVE. Hyun Soo wanted to guard his wife and daughter from his past. He took risks to find the truth and keep his life together. The odds were never in his favor but he didn’t stop trying shield his family.
CLEVER. Hyun Soo managed to gain advantages even with blind spots, lack of knowledge and opponents who knew everything.
BAGGAGE FROM THE PAST. His father was a serial killer and messed with his head. He believed himself incapable of love. He took the blame for a murder his sister committed. He was mistreated by the village. He took over another man’s identity (at the request of the man’s parents no less). These are things you don’t dust off at the end of the day. They stay with you, though they may lessen with time and love.
Is he my next date?
NO. 👎 Hyun Soo has positives but his past is permanent wound that would be a challenge to deal with.
