5 Reasons Why You Should Watch ‘When My Love Blooms’ on Viu

When My Love Blooms, the newest romance drama by tvN, premiered last weekend and the ratings show it did not disappoint. Its first episode received an average rating of 5.4%, claiming the top spot in its time slot across cable channels.

Want to find out what South Koreans love about this drama? Here are 5 reasons why!

1. It’s about a topic everyone can relate to—first love

The drama takes place both in the past and in the present, looking at the lives of Han Jae Hyun and Yoon Ji Soo, two people who were each other’s first loves in their younger years. In flashbacks, we see them as college students, Jae Hyun as a law student and Ji Soo as a piano major, how these two people from very different backgrounds meet, and how they eventually fall in love.

2. It gives the ~feels~ right away with its heart-wrenching storyline

In the present, Jae Hyun and Ji Soo fatefully meet again later in their forties. With their reunion, it is shown how much their lives are now disconnected, with each dealing with their own demons. However, despite their distance, through their emotions and body language, viewers can easily see that they both long for what they had in the past.

3. The stellar acting from the main characters will make viewers laugh and cry.

Though few words are said, Yoo Ji Tae (who plays Jae Hyun) and Lee Bo Young (who plays Ji Soo) are able to portray their characters and their emotions amazingly, leaving viewers close to tears at the end of each episode. Additionally, viewers are given light-hearted kilig-inducing moments when going back to the past, where Park Jin Young (of GOT7, who plays the younger version of Jae Hyun) and Jeon So Nee (who plays the younger version of Ji Soo) perfectly encapsulates what it feels like to fall in love for the first time.

4. It has kontrabidas viewers would love to hate.

A K-Drama is never complete without our love-to-hate characters, the kontrabidas. As viewers get a glimpse into the main leads’ current lives, they are also introduced to the characters that make their lives miserable and stand in the way of their happiness. From the first episode, we see Jae Hyun’s wife, Jang Seo Kyeong, as a strong female figure who will fight for what she wants, and Jang San, his ruthless father-in-law.

5. It’s a show that fights for second chances.

Things may have happened in the past but that does not mean all is lost. In When My Love Blooms, the characters are given another chance to experience something beautiful together again when their lives get intertwined about 20 years after.
