Another "Flower Boy" Drama to Follow "Flower Boys of the Ramen Shop"
Another pretty-boy-themed drama is set to follow in the footsteps of the successful “Flower Boys of the Ramen Shop.” According to local news agencies, tvN, the cable network that broadcasts “Flower Boys of the Ramen Shop” is already planning a follow-up series, tentatively titled “Flower Boy Band: Eye Candy.”
Although the cast has yet to be announced, reports say an idol and a strong actor are strongly considered for lead roles. Two supporting roles may be won by participants of tvN’s reality-competition show, “Oh! Boy Audition.”
The idea of “Flower Boy” dramas comes from the intention to produce content appealing to tvN’s mostly female audience. While most cable stations attract viewership through more edgy content of sex and violence, tvN seeks to differentiate themselves with romantic comedies and eye-catching actors.
“Flower Boy Band: Eye Candy” is aimed at an early 2012 broadcast.
