We’ve reached the midway mark of “When My Love Blooms” and the scales are lastly beginning to tilt as Yoon Ji Soo (Lee Bo Young) and Han Jae Hyun (Yoo Ji Tae) resolve to make some life-altering selections. We are lastly starting to get some solutions to questions which have been slowly brewing because the premiere episodes. Here are a few of the issues we liked and hated about episodes seven and eight.
Warning: Spoilers for the newest episodes beneath.
LOVED: Joo Young Woo’s confession
Is there something extra torturing than having second lead syndrome? While Ji Soo and Jae Hyun’s romance is certainly one to root for, Joo Young Woo’s (Lee Tae Sung) confession melts hearts.
It’s clear that Young Woo simply desires Ji Soo to have a life that’s painless and worry-free. You can’t assist however really feel his ache as a viewer, as a result of who doesn’t wish to see Ji Soo find yourself residing fortunately? However, this scene is certainly a double whammy as a result of as touching as it’s, it’s additionally tragic. Young Woo confesses understanding that Ji Soo will depart his aspect. It actually tugs in your heartstrings and the actors have nice chemistry collectively. It nearly makes you would like that the drama adopted a love story for them as an alternative.
LOVED: Ji Soo leaving her husband and discussing it with Young Min
There was nothing worse final week than struggling by way of Ji Soo agreeing to return to her husband simply to guard Jae Hyun. Fortunately, she decides to return on her phrase and face no matter occurs subsequent. Even higher is that we get to see her speaking about it together with her son Young Min (Ko Woo Rim).
This scene may be very noteworthy. “When My Love Blooms” has a tendency to carry up their youngsters for the sake of drama however by no means actually exhibiting them past that. It’s refreshing that we bought to see Young Min’s tackle issues, as his opinion issues too, and it makes his character really feel extra related to the plot. If there’s something that comes earlier than romance, it’s a mom’s love for her baby, and this scene continues to cement that Ji Soo and Young Min are a bundle deal.
LOVED: The balcony scene between Ji Soo and Jae Hyun
It’s not a romance drama except there’s a scene of pure, unadulterated pining. And who doesn’t love that? A touching scene is when Ji Soo notices that Jae Hyun is sitting exterior of her house in his automobile. She’s fast on her toes and turns off the sunshine so he’ll depart. Unbeknownst to Jae Hyun, she squats down and watches him go.
This scene is somewhat romantic, and it’s endearing how they mentioned goodbye regardless of Jae Hyun not understanding she was watching. Their longing appears to be like and the swell of the instrumental music really makes this really feel particular.
LOVED: Jae Hyun’s plan persevering with to unfold
Jae Hyun’s want to proper wrongs has lastly made a reappearance within the current timeline of “When My Love Blooms.” As the eighth episode involves an in depth, it’s revealed he’s working as an informant for the prosecution. While it appears their investigation into his father-in-law (Moon Seung Geun) must cease, Jae Hyun decides to take a danger and spends hours divulging new info to maintain the case open.
This scene lastly offers some conviction to Jae Hyun’s character. His ulterior motives have been hinted to in earlier episodes, however this scene appeared to be a giant reveal. With any luck, extra particulars about this investigation will turn into clearer to the viewers so we are able to lastly see what his true intentions are.
HATED: Jae Hyun’s dialogue with Lee Se Hoon
After discovering that Ji Soo goes to return to her ex-husband, Jae Hyun takes it upon himself to attempt to cease it. He has a chilling confrontation with Se Hoon (Kim Young Hoon) the place he boldly admits that if Se Hoon takes her baby, he’ll declare Ji Soo.
While it’s admirable that he desires to guard Ji Soo, what Jae Hyun says appears extra silly than romantic. As of proper now, Jae Hyun has made no strikes to depart his loveless marriage, so all his massive discuss in the direction of Se Hoon appears ludicrous. Is he going to take Ji Soo on as a mistress? Jae Hyun has seen firsthand how his spouse and father-in-law have focused and harassed Ji Soo, so claiming her would not profit or defend her in any respect. Not to say, Ji Soo loves Young Min and has made it clear she desires to lift Young Min away from his father. While this scene ought to’ve made us root for Jae Hyun much more, it simply made each characters appear slightly pompous. Ji Soo deserves to have a life freed from all this petty meddling the place she will be able to increase Young Min in peace.
