I thought I was following the camellia flower but I got goosebumps with a twist.
Let’s point out the similarities and differences between tvN’s “Ilta Scandal” and KBS2’s “When the Camellia Blooms.”
While the identity of the iron bead killer was revealed in the 12th episode of tvN’s weekend drama “Ilta Scandal” on the 19th, the playfulness of “When the Camellia Blooms” began to draw attention again.
In the broadcast, Ji Dong-hee (Shin Jae-ha) expressed her anger toward the southbound line, starting with deleting the text message of the southbound line (Jeon Do-yeon), which she left to Choi Chi-yeol (Jung Kyung-ho), saying, “I want to hear your voice,” and deliberately bending the yacht handle to Incheon. In the end, Ji Dong-hee even appeared to aim at the iron bead toward the southbound line. In other words, the iron bead killer was Ji Dong-hee.
Ji Dong-hee is a student of Choi Chi-yeol in the past and the younger brother of Jung Soo-hyun, who killed himself in the leak of test papers. Ji Dong-hee has a feeling of respect and love for Choi Chi-yeol, the only one her sister Jung Soo-hyun relied on, and it seems that this feeling went in the wrong direction and took revenge on the person who bullied Choi Chi-yeol. This can be guessed from Ji Dong-hee’s rooftop room, which is full of Choi Chi-yeol’s pictures.
In fact, it has been mentioned that “Ilta Scandal” is similar to KBS2’s “When the Camellia Blooms” since its first broadcast. It is similar in that it is the return of the two “Roco Queen” Jeon Do-yeon and Gong Hyo-jin, that the two actors do not lose positive energy even in an environment that is difficult to break down as a single mother, and that it provides healing with warm family love.
The most similarity among them is that thriller is added to the sweet romance genre. The serial killer in “When the Camellia Blooms” harasss Dongbaeki (Gong Hyo-jin), the only witness and survivor, and even kills Hyangmi (Son Dam-bi), Dongbaeki’s friend. It was Heung-sik, an ordinary neighbor, who made viewers sweat with his creepy behavior.
Here, the difference between the two dramas “Ilta Scandal” and “When the Camellia Blooms” occurred. The criminal in “When the Camellia Blooms” was a third person who had no deep relationship with the main character. However, the culprit of “One-shot Scandal” was Ji Dong-hee, the closest person to the main character Choi Chi-yeol.
It is feared that Choi Chi-yeol, who regained happiness by having a full-fledged meeting with the southbound line, will collapse again due to the betrayal of Ji Dong-hee, who he believed most, and the death of people around him. Attention is focusing on how Choi Chi-yeol will overcome this crisis again and what Ji Dong-hee’s end will be like in the “one-shot scandal.”
