Just finished watching those Flower Grandpas, truly enjoyable.

First, the story: I gave it a ten, because this is definitely one new plot in Korean Drama Land... Just reading the initial description of this show made it immediately into my plan to watch..... Young Handsome Guys turning into Wrinkly Old Grandpas trying to solve the mystery to return Young Handsome Guys again. So we have mystery, police getting some bad guys, a read more little notch of romance, a huge bucket of bromance (my fav), and so many ROFLing. The ending was just heartwarming. I wouldn't mind a couple more episodes :D

Second, the acting: Seriously, old, REALLLY OLD, men acting 30's, you don't see that everyday, do you?!!
the acting was spot on, for our F4... You really gotta watch to know.. That's all I gotta say.

Finally, I am gonna wrap up by music, which was synced beautifully, and not to forget the little noises popping every once and a while (make you laugh even more)

So.... WATCH THIS DRAMA PLEASE, it's just 12 episodes... not much time wasted

This is a pretty great story. Just imagine 3 good looking men turned into old funny grandpas out of the blue, and the journey they have to go through to discover why that happened to them. It sounds like awesome to me, and actually it started awesome, I remember how much I laughed in the first episode of this drama. It was probably the most hilarious 1st episode ever made in dramaland... read more But... Why a 7?

Well, this drama was lacking in one aspect... I think the idea wasn't as well executed as I was waiting it to be. There were some holes in the story and I felt that some twists didn't have enough field to develop, and maybe it was because this was a mini-drama (I consider a mini-drama, anything below 15-16 episodes) Sometimes I also felt that some events were kinda rushed or suddenly introduced into the story, and yes, that's my only complain about this drama. If you are gonna give me a twist or add something to the story please let me see how that has been built previous episodes. Nevertheless, the story manages to keep your attention every episode.

Just to make it clear: I liked the twists and the events, it's just that I wanted to see why that X or Y situation happened.

Said that, this drama is funny, has awesome acting, and the characters were totally lovable, my favorite ones were Jung Woo and the Pink ahjussi ^_^ Great characters. This is very enjoyable, you'll not get bored and you'll have a little bit of everything: romance, action, comedy, thrilling moments, drama and a satisfying ending, and we all know that's very rare to find in dramaland TT_TT so, it's very appreciated. :) Thank you for that ending, writers.

They're both investigation comedy shows that deal one case per episode whilst trying to deal with a major case that drives the story.

    While watching this I always have mix emotions every episode. the thrill of catching the culprit and I always laugh. It's funny how they develop friendship tho they don't like each other at first. they always fight and argue even tho they make a great bond of friendship . I love the family of Jun Hyuk.I really like the cast (main leads) The story is interesting, quite unique. Its a light crime drama (not too bloody) mixed with comedy. It's a relief that it has a happy ending. Adding these drama on my favorite list. So its a must watch. You definitely watch this you will not regret it

    One of the best dramas I've watched in a long time. It had a good beginning, the perfect amount of middle and finally an ending (I have been let down with drama endings lately, good dramas, bad endings!) This ending I enjoyed. A must watch!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've been catching up with other stuff so I wouldn't have to finish this drama because I've become so attached to the characters, cast and story that it hurts to think there'll be no new episodes but it's been long enough. I'm going to man up and watch the final one.
