GOT7’s Jinyoung and Jeon So Nee will play the past versions of Han Jae Hyun and Yoon Ji Soo, respectively, making this tale of romance one that spans many years.
The first script reading took place on February 26, where all of the cast gathered with the production crew and director Son Jung Hyun to get a feel for everyone’s characters. Son Jung Hyun said to the gathered group, “I think that viewers would be comforted and can identify with that which moves their hearts. I hope that ‘When My Love Blooms’ can become that sort of drama for everyone who watches it.”
Once the reading began, it became clear that all of the cast embraced their characters. Yoo Ji Tae transformed into Han Jae Hyun, who works for a heartless company, and Lee Bo Young transformed into Yoon Ji Soo, a working mom just struggling to make it.

Lee Tae Sung plays Joo Young Woo, a man who is infatuated with Yoon Ji Soo and has had eyes only for her for a long time. Other big names such as Moon Sung Geun, Jang Gwan, Byung Hun, Min Sung Wook, and Eun Hae Sung all participated in the script reading, as well.
