MBC weekend drama "The Flower in Prison" by producer Lee Byeong-hoon was highly anticipated way before it started. He's famous for his past works such as "Heo Jun", "Dae Jang Geum", "Dong Yi" and more. However, the start of the drama wasn't all sugar and honey.
A new background of a prison was attempted for the first time. Reviews said that there was a 'difference' but that was it. This was when it was realized that Lee Byeong-hoon's methods didn't apply for all generations anymore. The repertoire was similar: the secret of birth, the evil deeds of characters and good defeating evil.
It was all too obvious that Queen Troika (Kim Mi-sook), Yoon Won-hyeong (Jung Joon-ho) and Jeong Nan-jeong's (Park Joo-mi) will get the punishment they deserve in the end because that is Lee Byeong-hoon's way of doing things. Watching Ok-nyeo (Jin Se-yeon) and they nice people around her for fifty-one episodes was a time of patience even to the viewers.
The final episode showed Won-hyeong and Nan-jeong drinking poison to their deaths. This happened for the first time in 7 months. Ok-nyeo's mother died in prison and Ok-nyeo herself was endlessly threatened by death. Yoon Tae-won (Go Soo), Seong Ji-hyeon (Choi Tae-joon) and Myeong Jong (Seo Ha-joon) suffered next to her and she failed at revenge every time she tried.
The Olympics led to an expansion of one episode. it was realized that 'good VS evil' is now not enough to reach the destination of a drama this long. The viewers will get tired of watching Ok-nyeo finding her throne and watching the evil characters what they deserve. Another disappointing thing is that Ok-nyeo and Tae-won's love disappeared on the way.
