“Flowers Bloom Even in the Sand” is a new romance drama about the story of youths struggling to bloom in their lives on a ssireum (traditional Korean wrestling sport) ring against the backdrop of Geosan, a city famous for ssireum. The drama follows ssireum prodigy Kim Baek Doo (Jang Dong Yoon) and his first love Oh Yoo Kyung (Lee Joo Myung).

Director Kim Jin Woo of the dramas “A Model Family,” “Queen of Mystery,” “Suits,” and “Love Alarm 2” as well as writer Won Yoo Jung have teamed up for the drama. In particular, “Flowers Bloom Even in the Sand” will be the first rom-com drama based on the theme of ssireum.

The newly released teaser depicts a moment from the past of friends Kim Baek Doo and Oh Doo Shik when they were young. However, one day, Oh Doo Shik leaves, raising anticipation for the story to unfold.

As Kim Baek Doo walks on to the ssireum ring, he recalls his promise with Oh Doo Shik who said, “Baek Doo, you have to become a strong man (jangsa),” referring to the cheonhajangsa title received by the champion of a ssireum match without weight class restriction.
