Apologies for the delay. You all waited for this to come out and thank you for your patience!!

I couldn't have done it without the help of a Korean fellow fan. She goes by on youtube as Bomvely. She contacted me on IG as when she saw my story that I was subbing the last Soopoiler and that she wanted to help other overseas fans understand unni more. And so do I. I asked her to help me translate the important part on this ep which before I could not quite understand and was hard to translate back to English. Seriously, she was so helpful and so kind. 

 

But now, let's give our Kong a lot more love because she ******* deserves it! T.T T.T T.T ㅜㅜㅜㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅜㅜㅜㅠ

 

Oh ad give this video a lot of love on youtube. Help spread it! 

 

BUT PLEASE GIVE CREDITS FOR SUBBING. Don't leave out Bomvelynim. <3

Gong Hyo Jin And Kang Ha Neul Affectionately Lock Eyes In Poster For Upcoming Rom-Com

KBS 2TV’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama “When the Camellia Blooms” (literal title) has revealed a new official poster!

“When the Camellia Blooms” tells the story of Yong Shik (Kang Ha Neul), a man who believes anything is possible with love and makes Dong Baek (Gong Hyo Jin) think the same way. Meanwhile, those who surround them scoff at their belief in the power of love.

In the poster, Gong Hyo Jin and Kang Ha Neul are seated on steps that open up to a beautiful view of their neighborhood Ongsan. Bathing in the warm sunlight and enjoying the cool breeze, the two look at one another with loving eyes. Yong Shik’s romantic eyes appear to be telling Dong Baek, “You’re amazing, you’re great, and you’re the best,” and Dong Baek gives Yong Shik a bright smile as if she’s responding to him.

The drama’s producers shared, “Not only was the filming location beautiful, but the way the two also created a beautiful scene just by gazing and smiling at each other added to the pleasant atmosphere on set.”

“When the Camellia Blooms” premieres on September 18 at 10 p.m. KST as the follow-up to “Justice.”

Rom-com/thriller 'When the Camellia Blooms' blossoms in ratings


By Dong Sun-hwa The Korea Times

"When the Camellia Blooms," a rom-com/thriller on KBS 2TV, topped the 10-11 p.m. timeslot ratings on Wednesdays and Thursdays, beating rival dramas on other channels by large margins.


The latest episode, aired on Thursday, hit 12.9 percent to be the most-watched program during the prime TV hour. The 32-part series beat the SBS drama "Secret Boutique" (5.8 percent) and MBC's "Extraordinary You" (3.3 percent).

 

The first episode of Camellia on Sept. 18 started at 7.4 percent.

 

The series is about Dongbaek, played by Gong Hyo-jin, a single mother who runs a pub named "Camellia" in a small village. Dongbaek is the Korean name of the flower. Opposite her is Kang Ha-neul, a policeman who is besotted with her and seeking to earn her love, whatever the sacrifice.

 

A thriller element heightens the tension because Dongbaek has witnessed an unsolved murder at a beauty parlor. Is the killer stalking Dongbaek?

 

"Realistic depiction of the characters and situations adds to the drama," Kang said during a press event in September.

Kong Hyo-jin Proves She Is Rom-Com Magnet on Both Big and Small Screens

 

By Hwang Ji-yoon The Chosun Ilbo

 

2019100500350_0.jpg


It looks like Kong Hyo-jin is trying to prove that she is truly a household name in Korean romantic comedy, as she concurrently appears in a romantic comedy film and a TV series.

 

Her latest film "Crazy Romance," co-starring actor Kim Rae-won, hit theaters on Wednesday amid much hype, while the TV series "When the Camellia Blooms" has been receiving good responses since its start on Sept. 19.

 

"These days, I'm more at ease than ever. My TV soap is going well and I have a good feeling about my film," said Kong.

 

Kong has a charm that makes her come across as a girl next door one can open up to, and this enables viewers to easily empathize with her characters.

 

The same is true for "Crazy Romance," which portrays a break-up and new relationship between a typical young couple of today.

 

Kong says romantic comedies are never easy for her despite her reputation and impressive portfolio in the genre. "I get stressed and a lot of things run through my mind each time," she said. One of her biggest fears is repeating her previous roles. "If something seems familiar, I often ask the director or writer to make a change. Some may call me fussy, but I believe that is what brought me to where I am now," she said.

 

"I especially like playing characters with high self-esteem, who are as committed to their work as they are devoted to love, because that kind of person, be it a woman or a man, seems awesome," she said.

S. Korean romantic comedy film to make surprise debut in 22 countries

SEOUL -- "Crazy Romance", a South Korean romantic comedy film directed by Kim Han-gyeol, has scored an unexpected success in the international film scene. The film depicts a story about two office mates falling in love.

 

NEW, a movie distributor, said in a statement on Tuesday that Crazy Romance has been exported to 22 countries including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong since it opened at home on October 2.

 

While South Korean fantasy action-blockbuster films such as "Along with the Gods" and thriller films such as "Parasite" have attracted international moviegoers, romantic comedy films have targeted domestic fans who favor light-hearted stories to kill time.

 

"It is unusual for a South Korean romantic comedy film to be sold to more than 20 countries," an official from Contents Panda, the international distribution wing of NEW, was quoted as saying. The official said the film's comic story has created a code of sympathy.

 

Crazy Romance starring Kim Rae-won and Gong Hyo-jin has garnered 1.16 million moviegoers in the first six days of its opening, according to the Korea Film Council.

The Origin of Gong Hyo-jin's Character Name in "When the Camellia Blooms"


By William Schwartz on HanCinema.net

 

photo1110129.jpg

 

"When the Camellia Blooms" has been a huge success on South Korean television hitting ratings upward of 14%. Though many factors are responsible for this, a subtler one is the unusual name of its main character. Dong-baek, who is played by Gong Hyo-jin, literally translates as Camellia. But why is the lead character of this aggressive romance named after the flower?

 

Both Gong Hyo-jin's agency as well as the drama's production company have confirmed that the lead's name was Dong-baek way back when the drama was still in pre-production. At the time the name was not considered relevant to the story and an explanation was not expected to be forthcoming.

 

But a person close to the drama's production has confirmed that there is a thematic meaning connected to the name of the flower. As a winter flower, the Camellia is intended to evoke a cold image. However, as the flower blooms, so too does the character in the drama bloom, despite the poor general conditions. The hope was that viewers would be able to make this connection themselves.

 

However, aside from the thematic connection a literal one has also flowed from the script that delves back into the lead character's unfortunate childhood. Flourishes like this have done much for the drama's reputation and allowed it to reach greater heights in popularity.

The romcom CRAZY ROMANCE has now pulled in over 2.8m viewers ($20.7m) fuelled by strong word-of-mouth. Delighted for Gong Hyo-jin who is long overdue a hit.
