I finished watching Grandpas Over Flowers Investigation Team a couple of weeks ago. This was once again recommended by my friend, Mitch. She knew that I am such a cry baby so she keeps on recommending Korean dramas that are either on the rom-com or light drama category.
The team solves one crime per episode, but each leads to their major case – finding out who the culprit is behind their transformation. I’m not sure if it’s just because I am watching too much CSI, but the cases are way too easy for me to figure out. But I still enjoyed it. Even if the premise is somehow similar to the hit anime, Detective Conan, Grandpas Over Flowers Investigation Team is still worth watching.
I could not stop laughing with how crazy the grandfathers were. Even the supporting casts are amazingly funny. There are also some light moments. And of course, a Korean drama is not complete without the love angle. This has got to be the most unique love triangle ever. There are a lot of times when my heart would flutter out of giddiness. The love story of Park Jung-Woo (Kim Hee-Cheol of Super Junior) and Jung Eun-Ji (Lee Cho-Hee) is very refreshing to watch.
If you’re a fan of detective stories, comedy or anything romantic, I bet you would like this. It’s funny yet very heartwarming. I love how something so funny can convey the message of teamwork, friendship and love. And the ending was just epic! =)
