"I will return to you"

 

Jae-Hyeon puts his heart into a clumsy gift to express all the love he couldn't give her until now. One of them is to face Hyeong-Goo (her father) who has changed and become so pitiable.

 

Seeing the Jae-Hyeon that she loved, Ji-Soo begins to open her heart to him, little by little. But Se-Hoon is revealing Jae-Hyeon's unjust firings of employees and other mistakes he made, which confuses Ji-Soo.

 

In June 1995, Ji-Soo's birthday approaches.

Ep. 9 Recap

 

Cathedral scene. 

 

JH walks JS home. They say their goodbyes to each other in front of JS' house. But then JS suddenly asks if JH wants to eat some ramyun, so they have some ramyun and coffee at the convenience store nearby. JH says what they're doing feels like a date. "Should we call this our first day?" referring to the start of their relationship. JS' expression changes at the question and she feels uncomfortable. They talk about enduring something, JH says he can endure it all because there's JS.

 

JS and JH then have a walk at the park. She talks about her dad, how he taught her how to play the piano, how she couldn't see his dad eye-to-eye at all back then but she understands him now. In return, JH tells her about his mom's radio that's recently broken so he gave her a personal concert. He tells JS about the song he sings to his mom, JS wants him to sing her that song too but he refuses to do so. JS falls asleep on his shoulder.

 

At dawn, JS and JH say their goodbyes. After a moment of hesitation, JH musters the courage to follow JS up the stairs. Before pressing the doorbell to JS' house, though, he notices the motion activated lamp in front of JS' front door is dead.

 

Later during the day, JH's secretary comes to JS' house to proudly show JS the newly installed CCTV above JS' front door. A technician also brings up a new digital door lock to be installed for her. JS is overwhelmed and becomes speechless at the sight of this.

 

JH's secretary returns to JH's office to report to JH. JH notices about the personal favors he keeps making Jun Woo do [for JS]. JW says he's the No. 1 person in Korea who knows JH best and assures JH that he's on JH's side. They start joking on how JW's all grown up. JH thanks JW. Aww they're so cute...

 

At the nursing home, JS is with her dad. There's a piano sound coming from the hall, so they head there. "My daughter knows how to play piano very well..." says JS' dad. JS asks him, "What did you say, dad?" "My daughter knows how to play piano very well, Seonsaengnim." referring to JS as "Teacher" (doctors and nurses are also called Seonsaengnim) because he doesn't remember her. The person playing piano turns out to be JH. He greets JS' dad and gets a happy greeting in return. So JS' dad doesn't remember JH either...

 

While walking alone during the day, an ambulance passes by JS blasting its siren and she suddenly has breathing difficulties. Seems like an anxiety attack.

 

At night, JS and JH have another stroll at the park. JS notices the newly installed motion sensor lights. She strongly suspects it's JH's doing but doesn't say anything. A speaker at the park plays a song JH sings while playing his guitar, it's Yoo Jaeha's You in My Arms. We're shown JW is also behind this and he works together with the security guard, bribing him with chickens lol. JUN WOO YOU ARE SUCH A CUTIE!!! JH says what she feels to JS. JS painfully smiles because she feels like a movie protagonist in her best scene, but she feels her footsteps are heavy if she walks together with JH. In the end, he assures her that he'll take care of things even though he doesn't know how long it'll take. He promises he'll come back to her.

 

SK watches Days of Being Wild at home. As the movie ends, JH comes to the movie room. SK seems sad but she tells JH the movie is no fun. JH explains how their marriage ends even before he met JS. He became indifferent and SK saw another man. And it's going to be hard for SK once she has to choose between him and her dad. SK replies there's nothing else in the world she wants, she's sorry but she's unable to divorce JH. SK starts to cry... And I feel kinda bad for her... But I try not to...

 

JS finally meets SK's dad. He claims he knows JS' dad, he used to give HG money and play golf with him. He wonders why JS is doing the things she does and whether she needs money.

 

YM meets with his school's principal. He asks YM why his grades are dropping and whether he has thoughts of studying abroad because he's chosen for a study abroad program, all expenses covered by "that company". YM hesitates because his grades are dropping but principal assures him because his past grades were good.

 

YM's school calls JS to inform her about the study abroad, she finds out it's funded by Hyung Sung Group (not sure if it's from SK's dad or JH). JS is required to come to YM's school to talk with YM's teacher. At YM's school, we see JS waiting for YM alone while there are other moms around her gathering in groups. A black sedan comes by, JH gets off the car to pick Jun Seo. JH stares at JS but other moms notice that and start gossiping about JS. Once JS sees JH, she pretends like she doesn't know JH.

 

JS sits down with YM and she seems to express her feelings about YM being chosen as Hyung Sung Group scholar to study abroad.

 

LMAO JH'S DRUNK SCENE. JS carries him on the back of her shoulders so he can sleep on the sofa. You know what happens next hee hee~

 

We find out that a couple of school moms finally gossip about JS & JH in front of their kids. Oh no...

 

Back in 1995, it's the night before JS' birthday. She excitedly picks a pair of shoes and a dress. The next morning, JS is all dressed up and we see her packing a lunchbox. JS' mom and sister are planning to get JS a strawberry cake for her birthday at the department store, but JS can't come with them because she has somewhere to go. She promises to come back home before nighttime.

 

Turns out JS is visiting JH at the military base to give him the lunchbox. While JH eats his lunch with JS, there's news on the television about a collapsed department store. JS recognizes the building. She calls someone (his dad's office IIRC) at a payphone and gets shocked at what she hears. She quickly leaves the military base in a trance-like state, even leaving her right shoe behind but JH is unable to chase her with the other shoe since people are holding him back. On the way back to Seoul, the train JS is on makes an emergency stop in the middle of the tunnel. JS who looks distressed leaves her seat and walks to a different coach, she keeps walking until the last coach but the door is locked. Realizing it's too late, she cries while banging the train door, wanting to get out of the dark tunnel.

 

Present day JS takes a train to visit YM. JH takes the train and sits next to her. JH makes up reasons why he's taking the train by saying his secretary is taking a day off and his car dies. She wonders how did he know about which train she takes. JH says he waited for her since dawn. And of course, the train makes an unexpected stop in the tunnel. JS gets really anxious and leaves her seat. At the end of the train coach, she cries during what seems like a panic attack, but this time JH is there to hug her.

 

It's raining at the nursing home where JS' dad is at. He remembers something and becomes worried. He looks at the family photo and puts on a jacket to go outside. In the rain, he shouts "Jiyoung... Yeobo (Wife/Honey)..." as he tries to find them.

 

END

 

 

Ep. 10 Text Preview

"Having filled with moments that are pretty like flowers, I think I can endure it all."

Despite experiencing the traumatic pain of the past, Jisoo can endure it because Jaehyun is beside her. Rumors [about JS & JH] spread rapidly, finally reaching Junseo and Youngmin. The two fight, but Youngmin says he does not want to be punished by the school and Jisoo respects Youngmin's choice. Meanwhile, Jisoo asks Jaehyun's involvement in the suicide case of a union member five years ago. Jaehyun tells Jisoo the story of his father's death.

@triplem, thanks for the recap. I’m actually getting nervous that something big is going to happen soon to send both JS and JH into further troubles. Things just seem to be escalating bit by bit especially after watching the preview with Youngmin and then the FIL. 

 

That trauma that JS experienced explains a lot. Her father probably held this against her too because it was her birthday and her mom and sister went to the store to buy her cake. What a great dad! <_< He likely used that trauma to blackmail JS all her life and make her submissive by exploiting the guilt and sadness she felt with the loss of her mom. She chose his way and still ended up in darkness. I hope by the end of the drama she’ll choose her own path and let go of that sad past. 
 

@enchantedyears, I just saw your recap. Thank you as well.

I love this drama.  I really do.  But even the quasi-happy moments have so much sadness. Or the main characters are happy for a second and then WHAM !  something really bad happens.  It's depressing.  From what I deduce, next episode isn't getting any better.  Even if it's the cheesiest of K-Drama trope, I'm hoping to see punishments for those who deserve it (FIL, all the PTA moms, ex-husband, and even wife) and happily-ever-after for JS/JH/YM.

"When My Love Blooms": Jeon So Nee unexpectedly faces tragedy while visiting lover in military

 

8339F934-8298-4B36-BB55-8F4102937F31.jpg

 

Park Jinyoung (GOT7) and Jeon So Nee will face an unexpected tragedy while enjoying a happy time together.

In episode 9 airing on the evening of May 23, the Sat-Sun drama "When My Love Blooms" (tvN, scriptwriter: Jeon Hee Young, director: Son Jung Hyun), Jeon So Nee (as young Ji Soo) will come to visit Park Jinyoung (as young Jae Hyun) and spend a short yet happy time in the army.

Earlier, Yoon Ji Soo (played by Jeon So Nee) defied the objection of her father, Yoon Hyung Goo (played by Jang Gwang), and continued cultivating her love for Han Jae Hyun (played by Park Jinyoung). The image of Han Jae Hyun being forced to enlist by Yoon Hyung Goo and Yoon Ji Soo conveying love through a letter and wholeheartedly waiting for him made the audience feel heartbroken.

It can be seen that the two protagonists' pure love in the past has been in full swing, making viewers feel fluttered and excited. The photos announced by the film crew today (May 23) are garnering viewers' attention with the image of their date when Yoon Ji Soo visits Han Jae Hyun in the military. In the photos, the two are gazing at each other with eyes filled with love and having a happy time like any other young couple, giving viewers a satisfying smile.

However, after short affectionate moments, the image of Yoon Ji Soo immediately changing her expression after receiving a phone call and Han Jae Hyun showing a surprised expression has created a tense and thrilling atmosphere. The audience is channeling attention to the challenge that the two will go through when feeling a sense of crisis and fear on Yoon Ji Soo's blank face. Notably, this is Yoon Ji Soo's birthday, so viewers are more curious about what tragedy will happen to the couple that had a happy and pleasant day like a dream.

"When  My Love Blooms" is a drama depicting first love memories of Han Jae Hyun (played by Yoo Ji Tae) and Yoon Ji Soo (played by Lee Bo Young) in the past and lingering emotions of the two when reuniting after a long period of separation.

"When My Love Blooms" will be aired at 9 pm (KST) today (May 23).

Ps:  Do we all find Yoon Ji-Tae incredibly charming in this drama?   He always dresses and moves elegantly.  In the scene where Jae-Hyun stood up and walked away after he had a face-to-face talk with Ji-Soo's ex...  We only have a fleeting glimpse of his moves in that scene but with that simple move Yoon Ji-Tae captured how confident, determined, forceful yet elegantly Jae-Hyun handled the situation when it come to protecting his love.  Lovely!   

 

I do agree with you in P/S note. But not only Yoon Ji-Tae but also Lee Boo Young is very charming though in this drama, she is only poor woman at middle age. But her clothes are very remarkable and she looks very elegant, I really admire her coats and her looking.
 

I have just finished the ep. 9 and cannot stop crying when watching the close hug in the end of the train when the train is going out of the dark tube. I must keep control my mind so I will give my comment later. It's very painful in my heart.

Yoo Ji Tae And Lee Bo Young Express Their Love Amidst Painful Moments In “When My Love Blooms”

May 24, 2020
by S. P
 

tvN’s weekend drama “When My Love Blooms” has revealed new stills of Yoo Ji Tae and Lee Bo Young for the upcoming episode!

The drama tells the story of Han Jae Hyun and Yoon Ji Soo, who were each other’s first love in college and then fatefully meet again later in life. Yoo Ji Tae and Lee Bo Young play the characters in the present while GOT7‘s Jinyoung and Jeon So Nee play the characters during their college years.

Spoilers

In the previous episode, Yoon Ji Soo’s hidden past came to light as it was revealed that her mother and sister died in an unfortunate accident. Although many years have passed, Yoon Ji Soo is still caught up in the pain and sorrow of losing her family members. Han Jae Hyun stays by her side as if he understands everything she has gone through.

The stills for the new episode show Han Jae Hyun standing next to Yoon Ji Soo’s son Young Min (Ko Woo Rim), who has a bruise around his eye. Han Jae Hyun looks worriedly at Yoon Ji Soo as she kneels to comfort her father Yoon Hyung Goo (Jang Gwang). Young Min also looks at his mother with an upset expression, although Han Jae Hyun attempts to comfort him by placing a hand on his shoulder. The stills hint at just how heavily tragedy struck Yoon Ji Soo’s family after one single accident.

Lucky Ji Soo for havin' a super wealthy bf ha-ha! He bought so many new stuff for her apartment. And she lost her sis, mom in a departmental store collapse. I can't remember which other k-drama also had its lead character lose their family in a similar incident? Now Seo Kyung wants to fight for Jae Hyun aigoo~ I somehow sympathise more for Song Hye Kyo's ex hubby (no I don't mean Song Joong Ki LoL) in her drama Encounter

 

When Ji Soo boldly asked Jae Hyun if he wanted to have ramen, I was like oooh la la! But then turned out she meant it literally LMFAo. Get my mind out of the gutter.

FYI, Ep. 9 is referencing this:

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sampoong_Department_Store_collapse

 

An entire department store collapsed due to defective construction on June 29, 1995. (They also referenced this disaster in Chocolate.)

 

Okay, so Ji-Soo's sister and mother died in this disaster, and I guess Ji-Soo blames herself because they went to buy her a birthday cake there? And she was away visiting Jae-Hyeon at his army base.

 

:tears:

It is incredibly devastating to have a parent die on your birthday and to be blamed for it.  JS's dad would make her life a living hell because of this, and he had already made it more than clear that her sister was loved but that she wasn't.   To feel deep guilt on top of that terrible loss and also the rejection by her dad adds exponentially to the pain.  It's easy to see why she would have severe PTSD and also why she could have been manipulated into marrying a controlling man.  

 

There is a lot here that I can relate to on a personal experience level.  It's painful stuff to watch but the story makes a lot of sense to me; the way that LBY is playing her role reaches right into my heart.  There's so much here that feels real.

Ep. 10 Recap

 

We start off with the train scene.


- 1995 -
JS runs to the hospital, she's drenched in the rain. Instead of the morgue, she heads to the emergency room. But all she sees are bodies covered by a layer of fabric, all motionless. She sees her dad sitting on the floor, staring at two bodies: JS' mom and sister. JS starts crying  once she sees the smashed strawberry cake and what seems to be her sister's watch on one of the dead bodies' wrist.

 

Jaehyun is punished in a cell and he's crying.

 

JS dreams about the time she's about to leave the house to visit JH in the military. This time, she turns around to see her mom and sister eating in the dining room having a good time together. She calls out their names from outside the window. But no matter how many times she shouts, they wouldn't look at her and continue to ignore her. She cries.

 

(continued under the spoiler tag)

Spoiler

- 2020 -
In a calmer state, JS shares her story to JH about what happened to her mom and sister and just how much she misses them. JH comforts JS and wipes away her tears.

 

JS' dad somehow gets to the emergency medical center from his nursing home in a state of panic. He starts asking where his wife and daughter are to people passing by while showing the family photo but they only shrug him off.

 

Junseo's friends let him know about the rumor so Junseo goes to see YM in anger. A fight breaks out between Junseo and YM. While punching YM, Junseo blames YM saying it's his mother's fault. YM who doesn't understand anything at the time fights back.

 

JS and JH reach the school around the same time despite walking separately and pretending they don't know each other. But school principal notices that they arrive together.

 

School principal walks JH to his office. Junseo is already there, waiting for them with bruised face not wanting to say what exactly happened.

 

JS runs to the sick bay where YM is, he doesn't want to talk to her either.

 

We go back to the principal's office where JS, JH, schoolteacher and the principal have a talk about the fight. So they call Junseo's two friends and ask both of them who started the fight. One of the boys mentions Junseo's name but then changes it to Youngmin's. JH knows it's definitely Junseo who started it. The other boy uncomfortably spills why the fight happened: because YM's mom and JS' dad have a relationship.

 


- 1995 - 
After the funeral, JS starts living with her dad.

 

On one rainy day, JS dad runs outside the house in anger to look for JS' mom and sister. She begs him to stop because they're no longer alive but he slaps her instead. Seems like this is the first time it happens.

 

On a different day, YW goes to JS' house. They go to the park and talk there. YW asks why JS doesn't go to university anymore. She explains she's decided to quit, her dad's not living his life anymore, it's as if he wants to die. She plans to move away because she can't stay at home when all she sees are memories of her mom and sister. YW wants to know what she's going to do about JH.

 

That night JS writes a farewell letter to JH. She then places it on her house's letter box.

 

JH drops by at JS' house on his day off, wishing to see her but all he gets is JS' farewell letter. He goes off to meet DJ, YW and Hwajin but none of them know where JS is. None of them are close to Hyejeong either. YW looks hesitant when answering JH's questions, though.

 


- 2020 -
JS who finally finds out why YM wouldn't see her face goes to the school's sick bay again. Suprisingly, she tells YM the truth that JH was her first love despite knowing there's a possibility that YM will get mad at her. YM quietly takes in what his mom has to say. JS apologizes to YM and he doesn't look so angry anymore.

 

JH adresses the rumor to Junseo. Junseo listens quietly and then says "But you have mom..."

 

YM's school principal calls SK's dad. The principal looks afraid and seems to obey Jang San.

 

On the way back home, JH receives a call from JS' dad nursing home because JS is not picking up their calls. JH goes to see JS to let her know about the situation. He drives JS and YM to the emergency center where JS' dad sits outside. This time, JS' dad recognizes her and says he's thankful that they found JS' mom and sister's body but he misses them so much. YM becomes sad seeing JS and his grandfather in pain so JH pats YM's back in an effort to console him.

 

JH reaches home and sees Junseo sleeping next to SK.

 

While having their breakfast the next day, JS receives a call from YM's teacher. Seems like the school wants to have school violence hearing. YM says there's something he wants to do.

 

The same morning, SK also gets a call from school about the school violence hearing, she insists they get to the bottom of it. Junseo is concerned about what's going to happen because this time he was also involved in the fight, but SK is confident about it.

 

JS and YM make a trip to YM's school. YM tells the whole situation to his school principal, how the school did nothing while he endured school violence and expresses his decision to drop out of the school. Once they're outside the school building, YM breaks down in tears. JS hugs him. On the train to Seoul, YM asks JS if she can stop seeing JH if he tells her he doesn't like it. JS doesn't say anything. YM doesn't hate her, though. He understands his mom.

 

JH finds out YM's decision to drop out from SK.

 

SK talks to JH's mom, trying to get JH's mom to side with her.

 

At JS' piano teaching job, a little girl waits outside the music academy. Turns out she can play the piano very well but she never takes lessons and doesn't have piano at home because her family can't afford it. JS sends her home and says she'll take her in as a student if she comes to the academy at night (after official hours).

 

Near the little girl's house, JS sees an empty house that's available for rent. Not sure if she's planning to move there or it's the place she used to live in after disappearing.

 

JH gives another set of documents to the prosecutor, this time is about Kwon Hyuk Soo's death 5 years ago. He reveals a surprising truth about the man's death.

 

JS notices she's being followed so she visits SK's dad at his office. She demands him to stop having her followed.

 

At night, JS meets up with JH. She wants to know the truth about JH's prosecution. JH tells her everything about SK's dad's involvement in his father's death and he wants to avenge that.

 

END

Is it just me, but I really want Jae Hyun to stay rich after his battle with the chairman and be with Ji Soo. If he reunite with Ji Soo but becomes poor I may not be able to bear it. Ji Soo has been struggling financially, so I really hope that she can enjoys the chaebol money with her beloved Jae Hyun... it would be good for young min too...

As Ji Soo said, there is a price for everything. I would be content with JH walking away from that chaebol family with the clothes on his back or the clothes on his back and the money he earned. ^_^

 

@triplem, that’s huge news right there. So that corrupt old man did have something to do with JH’s dad’s death. I wonder how JH managed to suffer his presence over all things years. Wow. The patience of plotting someone’s comeuppance. I don’t think it will be easy to bring that corrupt man down though.

 

@enchantedyears, thank you for the recap.
