6. When the Camellia Blooms
This neat and exciting drama will surely make you feel cheerful! it’s a straightforward rom-com with a bit of a crime suspense twist to drive the story.

The quirky title refers to the lead character, and not an actual flower. The Camellia in the title is not only the name of the bar that Dong Baek runs, but it also refers to Dong Baek herself since a "dong baek" is a camellia, and this drama is about Dong Baek blooming and finding love; but also claiming her own sense of self.
