The most recent episodes of “When My Love Blooms” left little room for swooning and happiness, as Yoon Ji Soo (Lee Bo Younger) and Han Jae Hyun (Yoo Ji Tae) change into at odds with their households. The battle is woven in expertly with their youthful counterparts (respectively performed by GOT7’s Jinyoung and Jeon So Nee) as their historical past slowly begins to repeat itself within the current. Whereas every pair of actors shine each week, this week their youthful counterparts take the highlight. Listed here are among the issues we liked and hated concerning the new episodes.
Warning: spoilers for episodes 5 and 6 forward.
1. LOVED: Jae Hyun sticking as much as Ji Soo’s father
Each week we find out how Jae Hyun has formed and influenced Ji Soo via his infinite help and love of their faculty days, and the newest episodes aren’t any totally different. A standout scene is when he encourages and goes with Ji Soo to stay as much as her household.
This scene stirs so many feelings. Whereas it serves as a catalyst for Ji Soo’s father (Jang Gwang) to meddle of their relationship, it was about time we noticed somebody be on Ji Soo’s aspect. It’s been heartbreaking all through the earlier episodes to observe her try to garner some sympathy from her father whereas her mom normally stands there and watches in silence. This scene feels comforting, as in the event you can set free a sigh of reduction that she has somebody on her aspect.
2. LOVED: Attending to see Jae Hyun’s household
After two weeks of episodes with little to no details about Jae Hyun’s household, this week we lastly collect a bit of perception. A few essentially the most pivotal scenes of the brand new episodes includes each of his mother and father giving their ideas about him protesting.
The scene together with his mom (Son Sook) is especially touching. At first, it looks as if she’s going to disprove, however as an alternative, she assures him how a lot she helps him. You possibly can’t assist however cry and commend his mom for being so supportive. Then again, his father (Nam Myung Ryul) does disapprove, however the episodes later reveal that he was additionally aside of the labor actions throughout that point.
Figuring out that his father has handed away and that his loss of life drastically impacted Jae Hyun, it appears much more poignant that Jae Hyun’s ardour for human rights begins together with his father. Maybe, it may be the rationale he deserted these passions. Hopefully subsequent week we are going to proceed to find out about his previous.
3. LOVED: Ji Soo’s spunk and confidence
Romance dramas aren’t any stranger to scenes the place the boyfriend has to claim his dominance in entrance of different guys that hit on their girlfriends. “When My Love Blooms” takes an alternate method with one of these scene, as Jae Hyun shies away from the chance. Having stuffed in as a favor to her good friend, Ji Soo goes on a bunch blind date. Jae Hyun finally ends up there with the persistence of his good friend however is extremely flustered when one of many boys challenges him. Ji Soo saves the day by cheekily saying that Jae Hyun is her husband.
Ji Soo’s spunk on this scene is endearing. It’s cute that she will get to be the one who shoots down the man and save Jae Hyun from being tongue-tied as an alternative of the different method round.
4. LOVED: Ji Soo’s help system
Ji Soo is nothing wanting an impartial girl, however it was heartbreaking final week to see her son admit that she was on their lonesome. Fortunately, this week’s episodes introduced again Ji Soo’s finest good friend from faculty, Yang Hye Jung (Woo Jung Gained). The pair shares lunch collectively and he or she opens up about how she met Jae Hyun. Whereas it does trigger some pressure, finally the 2 hug it out.
Of course, we can also’t overlook Joo Younger Woo (Lee Tae Sung) who has been pining for Ji Soo since their faculty days. After Ji Soo confides in him that her husband filed for custody of Younger Min, Younger Woo is fast to guarantee her that she would win the case.
It’s heartwarming to see that Ji Soo has her personal help system, particularly since her worst fears are starting to come back true. There’s nothing extra melancholic to observe than somebody going via one thing tough on their lonesome. Hopefully, Hye Jung will proceed to make different appearances within the drama alongside Younger Woo.
5. HATED: Ji Soo agreeing to return to Lee Se Hoon
The one factor worse than entitled and manipulative ex-husbands in Okay-dramas is watching these very ex-husbands nook their ex-wives into returning to them. Lastly having gotten leverage over Ji Soo, Lee Se Hoon (Kim Younger Hoon) wastes no time to file for custody of Younger Min. Whereas Ji Soo calls him out on his bluff, as she is aware of this isn’t about custody however somewhat a ploy to get her again, she nonetheless decides to return to him in order that no hurt involves Jae Hyun.
The smug look on Se Hoon’s face because the fifth episode ends is sickening. It’s admirable that Ji Soo needs to guard the folks she loves, however it isn’t going to be pleasant to observe her undergo and endure the life she left behind. Optimistically, this case gained’t final lengthy and she is going to be capable of go away with Younger Min.
