When My Love Blooms

Title 화양연화 – 삶이 꽃이 되는 순간 / When My Love Blooms
Also Known as The Most Beautiful Moment in Life / The Happiest Time of Our Lives


Trailer I

Twenty years ago, Yoon Ji Soo fell in love with a man who made her heart sing. As a freshman in the college of music, Ji Soo didn’t expect to catch the eye of Han Jae Hyun, a popular, headstrong law school student, but she did. Falling for him as quickly as he fell for her, the two experienced one of the most beautiful moments any two people can experience together: their first love. But like so many first loves, theirs wouldn’t last forever.

Trailer II

Now in her forties, Ji Soo is a single mother, working a contract job in a desperate attempt to make ends meet. Jae Hyun, on the other hand, is a successful, ambitious businessman who has pursued wealth and honour, above all else. Far different than the man he once was, Jae Hyun is hardly recognisable as the headstrong kid he used to be. But when fate brings Ji Soo back into his life, she recognises him almost immediately. Suddenly back in each other’s lives, Ji Soo and Jae Hyun have been granted a rare opportunity to start over. But can two people really separated by so many years and experiences, really reignite a flame that flickered out so many years ago?
