Lee Sang-yi joins the cast of When Camellia Blooms
When Camellia Blooms has cast another supporting actor, Lee Sang-yi (Special Labor Inspector Mr. Jo, The Third Charm). This KBS drama will feature a romance between an older woman trapped by societal expectations and an idealistic man who wakes her heart with his “Anything is possible with love!” attitude.
Gong Hyo-jin (Jealousy Incarnate) plays the older woman, and Kang Haneul (Midnight Runners) plays her romantic interest. Lee Sang-yi plays a former baseball player who currently coaches a little league team. He is Kang Haneul’s character’s best friend and often-wrong relationship mentor.
It will be interesting to see Lee Sang-yi playing such a hapless and comic character, especially after seeing him role after role as a villain (e.g. Special Labor Inspector Mr. Jo, Smart Prison Living). Honestly though, I’m mostly excited for the main pairing because both Gong Hyo-jin and Kang Haneul can channel this adorkable awkward energy, and I can’t wait to see that energy bouncing between them on my screen.
KBS Wednesday-Thursday drama When Camellia Blooms will begin airing on in September of this year.
