  1. K-Drama Premiere: “When The Camellia Blooms” Delicately Hints At A Beautifully Entwined Blossoming Of Love And Mystery The triumphant and long-awaited return of Gong Hyo Jin and Kang Ha Neul did not disappoint in When the Camellia Blooms. When the Camellia Blooms premiered this week and hit the mark for everything any drama fan longs for: an interesting ensemble and an intriguing story line enough to keep one guessing. PREMIERE WEEK RATING: Scoring 7.4% and 8.7% for its nationwide viewership ratings, the humble beginnings of Dong Baek’s Camellia bar set tongues wagging. Gong Hyo Jin portrays Dong Baek as a timid and shy bar owner. But don’t take her lightly because she still somehow knows how to defend herself. Gong’s character is beautiful and reserved, leaving men to gawk at her as she passes by. Meanwhile, Kang Ha Neul makes a comeback after his discharge in the mandatory military enlistment. As Yong Sik, he yearns to be sophisticated and suave, but his hot-headedness gets ahead of him. He is simple-minded to say the least, but his sincerity and kindness helps us overlook this slight flaw. The moment he sees Dong Baek, he’s impossibly smitten. And from then on out, it’s adorable to watch Yong Sik fumble his way through his admiration for Dong Baek. Premiere Week Recap The premiere week leads its viewers immediately to a dark and ominous scene. A murder may have just taken place and viewers follow behind a police officer walking slowly to the scene. As paramedics lift the dead body, the arm falls, revealing a bracelet. Up next, a small and quiet neighborhood watches with curiosity as a beautiful young woman moves in. Dong Baek, with her long hair flowing behind her, appears suddenly and glances around her. Men gawk at her beauty, the women see her as a threat. As she lifts down a baby stroller from the moving truck, there’s a collective sigh of relief among the women. Meanwhile Yong Sik’s mother rushes about, sighing in despair over her wayward son. A still unknown lad called Yong Sik, who seems to always be in the right place to catch a robber or a pickpocket. His desire to help and flaring temper get ahead of him all the time, defying any threat of danger. The police are familiar with the brave young man, often having to cite him for his accomplishments. Inevitably, he becomes a police officer. However, even as Dong Baek strives hard to befriend her neighbors, they decide against the beautiful Dong Baek. They already see her as a threat, and when they find out that Camellia is not a flower shop but a bar, she’s even more disliked. They turn against her and gossip about her up to the point of even harassing her. In short, she’s not welcome. They cruelly predict that she won’t even last three months. However, Dong Baek provides what the men in this neighborhood longs for; a safe refuge from their gossiping wives, mothers, and daughters. They work under the strict arm of their wives and never catch a break. As Dong Baek opens the doors to the Camellia, men flock in. Not because of Dong Baek herself, but because of what the Camellia provides: a place to relax and have a beer. The Potential Men in Dong Baek’s Life As previously mentioned, Yong Sik is instantly attracted with Dong Baek. After seeing her in a bookstore, he follows her outside, obviously smitten. He mistakes her for a lawyer, and is surprised when she owns the bar his co-workers drag him to. But Yong Sik’s huge crush on Dong Baek is refreshing. He offers to be her friend and on her side when he sees the neighborhood ladies harass Dong Baek. He comes to her aid and goes as far as stealing No Kyu Tae’s wallet just to pay back the 8000 won Mr. No refused to pay. Yong Sik follows Dong Baek around like a lovesick puppy. Meanwhile, Kang Jong Ryeol is a doting father who currently stars on Return of the Superman, Jong Ryeol sighs over his vain wife Jessica. She’s more obsessed over her verified mark on her social media than her own daughter. She keeps away from both her husband and child, living in her own narcissistic bubble.
  2. *** I love the first two episodes because there is something appealing about the storyline. Not surprising that it topped the TV ratings for its timeslot. I also love that the story moves at a surprisingly brisk pace. Kang Ha Neul is a joy to watch. He falls for Dong Baek at first sight that he gets embroiled into all matters concerning her. KHN’s humor scenes with her were fun. Then there are numerous & different neighbors that the main characters have to deal with.

In the clip, Song Seung Heon cracks jokes with co-stars and extras in between takes. Lee Sun Bin makes hearts flutter with her beauty as she arrives at the movie theater for her date with Song Seung Heon. They listen to the instructions from the director and rehearse the scene where their hands touch while eating popcorn. The two actors then run into a realistic-looking fight taking place at her parents’ chicken restaurant. The actor is full of ideas as he suggests various gestures for the scuffle, and everyone has a blast shooting the scene. When the director shouts cut, Lee Sun Bin drops to the floor laughing because of the witty improvisations of her co-stars.

He really looked down on me and I could totally feel it.” Kang Sung Jin suddenly appears at an already solemn dinner and introduces himself as the father of the children.
