Beautiful Reborn Flower (2020)

Beautiful Reborn Flower
After a long waiting time, the drama adaptation of author Anni Baobei’s novel Flower in the Bank finally makes a debut on the small screens as Lin Heping is forced to confront the question of how much time does one need to get over a past love? The drama’s fresh and dreamy posters might give an appearance of a light and airy romp, but it’s worth noting that Anni Baobei has been given the nickname of “Flower in the Dark” by her readers for her books' propensity to dip into melancholy tones. Whether that translates directly to the drama or if the writers will tweak the story to make it more appealing to general audiences is the big question since the drama itself already has differences from the novel which revolves around one man and a pair of twins. Another theme the author likes to incorporate into her stories is travel, and lucky us the drama opens with a scene in the beautiful Spanish city of Barcelona.

Picking up after the sudden death of Nansheng, the 50-episode series entitled Beautiful Reborn Flower 彼岸花 sees Nansheng’s ex boyfriend Lin Heping trying to come to terms with her death. In an attempt to move on from his memories of Nansheng, Heping goes to Barcelona to hold an art exhibition where he meets a woman who bears an uncanny resemblance to his dead ex. The optimistic and straight shooting Qiaoman is a painter by profession. Because both women possess similar looks and gentle dispositions, Heping couldn’t help but grow feelings for Qiaoman. This angers Qiaoman’s suitor and benefactor Hansen. Will Heping manage to win Qiaoman’s affections?

  1. Are David Wang and song weilong going to be competitors again?? Loved Find Yourself!

  2. Peter Ho should get other roles. He looks older than his actual age and Jelly Lin looks younger. At least in the trailer it looks like daddy goes after a girl younger than his daughter. Not that it don't happen in RL but problably I'm biased since he gives me the creeps...always.

    1. I kinda agree with you on the age gaps. Song Wei Long is 21 years old, Jelly is 24 years old and Peter Ho is 44 years old.

  3. this drama is bad! Peter Ho's Hanson is such a stupid character! And yes it dose not suit him he should of played the uncle or daddy. Why dose HP father looks younger than Hanson? I had to stop, the drama is really bad, even though you want to find out what really happened, I just can't lol.

  4. It's slow but with a story line that's interesting to watch compared to Song Weilong's previous drama Find Yourself which was draggy with no substance. I find this style of drama to be similar to the korean drama The King Eternal Monarch it is also slow but it's not to the point that it's cringey and boring to continue,there's always something going on in the next scenes also compared to its predecessor Goblin which was honestly just lackluster yet it had so much hype around it

  5. this drama wad filmed 3 years ago so Song Wei Long was 18 Jelly Lin was 21. So younger than they are now which explains the baby faces.
