18-years after his debut, actor Kim Ji Hoon has become the center of attention for his crazy acting in tvN's mystery/thriller series, 'Flower of Evil'!
In tvN's 'Flower of Evil', male lead Lee Jun Ki initially appears as a man with an inability to feel emotion, Baek Hee Sung. His wife Cha Ji Won (played by Moon Chae Won) is a police detective working on a serial murder case, when she begins to suspect that her husband might be the culprit.
However, the drama shocked viewers in the latter half of the series as it was revealed that male lead Lee Jun Ki was living with a false identity! His real name was Do Hyun Soo, the son of an infamous serial killer Do Min Suk. Then who was the real Baek Hee Sung?
It turned out, the real Baek Hee Sung (Kim Ji Hoon) was asleep in a coma due to a serious injury for years:
After the real Baek Hee Sung regained consciousness, 'Flower of Evil' began to take even more dramatic twists as the real Baek Hee Sung's past, his psychopathic nature, as well as details of his past crimes began unfolding slowly.
