Kang Ha Neul Keeps His Promise By Appearing For Post-Military Interview On âEntertainment Weeklyâ


Kang Ha Neul’s first acting project after his discharge will be the KBS drama “When the Camellia Blooms” (literal title). He said, “I love projects with good scripts. The script was so good that I had no choice but to accept. I think that I am similar to my character in that I don’t hide it when I like someone.”

He added in another part of the interview, “As long as the script is good, I would try any kind of role. I think it would be fun to try a realistic project in which there’s ambiguity between good and evil.”

'When The Camellia Blooms'




Gong Hyo Jin and Kang Ha Neul have been cast in a new drama!

'When The Camellia Blooms' is an upcoming KBS rom-com drama that follows a naive but strong-willed woman named Dong Baek, played by Gong Hyo Jin, as she navigates relationships with three different men. One such man is Kang Ha Neul's character Hwang Yong Sik, Dong Baek's manly, sexy love interest that often softens her up with various complements and sweet words.

The drama will be Kang Ha Neul's very first drama project after completing his two years of military service. The actor was officially discharged last May.

Meanwhile, 'When The Camellia Blooms' was written by 'Fight My Way' screenwriter Im Sang Chun and will be directed by 'Uncontrollably Fond' director Cha Young Hoon. The drama is slated to begin airing in September.

Kim Ji Suk Confirmed To Join Gong Hyo Jin And Kang Ha Neul In Upcoming Drama

by J. Lim

Kim Ji Suk has confirmed his appearance in an upcoming drama with Gong Hyo Jin and Kang Ha Neul after previously announcing that he was in talks!

The drama he is set to appear in is KBS’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama “When the Camellia Blooms” (literal title), which will be a romantic thriller comedy about the love between three couples. It will center around the story of a woman named Dong Baek (played by Gong Hyo Jin) and shows how her love life is tied to a good man, a bad man, and a cheap man.

Kim Ji Suk will take on the role of Kang Jong Ryul, Dong Baek’s first love and a star baseball player who almost made it to the major leagues. He currently appears in a childcare variety show as a doting father to his daughter, and his wife is a social media influencer. Although they appear to be perfect on the outside, once cameras turn off and all pictures are uploaded, the couple barely speak to each other. They are “#Relationship Goals” in the virtual world but are basically strangers in real life. Jong Ryul was inexperienced in love when Dong Baek met him at the age of 23, but 33-year-old Jong Ryul is different now. He appears flashy on the outside, but he’s timid and relatable when you take a closer look.

I'll always give Gong Hyo Jim dramas a try because she has not disappointed me as yet. Even when the writing is basic, her work is interesting.



Since the handsome good man is the obvious choice, I'm hoping the less handsome petty/stingy guy wins. Lol.
