The flower is called Chinese trumpet vine / Campsis radicans (in Korean 능소화) that has the symbolic meaning of waiting. In the past, it was a flower that could be planted in nobles’ houses in Korea.

It is also linked to a folklore tale in Korea. To summarize it, there was a court lady named SoHwa who was loved by the king in the palace. However, the king was no longer interested in her and she was only waiting for him. She kept waiting and did not do bad deeds to attract his attention like the other ladies.

One summer day, she was slowly dying because of lovesickness. She left a will saying “Bury me, even if I die, I will wait for the king. He would come soon”. After her death, all her quarters were filled with the Chinese trumpet vine.

The King could be Baek Kyung, the court lady Eun DanOh and the bodyguard (?) HaRu, according to some fans theories.

With the new appearances of the flower and plot changes, there are numerous theories such as Haru and DanOh knowing each other from their previous lives and much more.

With this meaning behind the flower, what do you think will happen in the future episode?

I think I understand what is happening and what will happen. It is a bit confusing, but if you study each chapter well you can understand it and thus be able to know more what is happening. I love this drama. I fell in love. I don’t know why in Chapter 25 (I think) the end almost made me cry. It’s the first time a drama makes me cry a lot

대박!!!
I made an edit of that flower. This drama has a certain resemblance to The Legend Of The Blue Sea. It has that part, which repeats the same story as in the past life. Anyone understand what I say? It’s interesting !!! Amazing. I love this drama ❤

Hello, thank you for your comment.
We are not sure about the title, it might be only the name of the flower.
You can have access to it in Korean below for more information.

i think baek kyung’s little brother has smth to do with their past lives, he likes Danoh even tho thats not even his set up so he is suspicious

I think Haru and Dan Oh is connected in the past. He failed to protect Dan Oh in the past life so he tries to always find her in ‘new’ life and protect her. It is Haru who always wait for the time he will see Dan Oh and do whatever he needs to do. He will do anything even if he does as long as he protects Dan Oh. He will eventually remember things that he already forgot

i think the King would be Haru, the Court Lady as Eun Dan Oh, and the bodyguard as ????. In the webtoon/comic, Haru starts to lose awareness and does not know his name. [This starts happening towards the end of the story.] I’m not positive since I skipped to the very end of the webtoon lol
