When The Flowers Bloom Summary
Think of me whenever the flowers bloom.

When The Flowers Bloom starts in present day, with a man examining letters from a woman to her husband.
The story is a tragic one, but it starts off with a promise of happiness.
There’s definitely some folklore happening, with a prophecy surrounding the male lead character and his demise. However, the female lead seems to be suffering a badly dealt hand, too.
Both of these should never have been married, according to prophecies, but it seems their fates are conjoined. Needless to say, tragedy is going to befall the young couple.
Not to mention we also have a mysterious supernatural man, whom only the female lead can see.
However, she’s not sure who he is or what he wants from her. Obviously he’s not going to straight out tell her, either.
I gather he’s not exactly happy with her nor her choices in this life, but I don’t know if he’s secretly in love with her, either. When she’s with her current husband, he seems angry at the idea. But who knows, maybe it means nothing.
Overall the story starts out strong and it has a sense of impending doom. It’s definitely not a story I imagine will have a happy ending.
Final thoughts: It has a great start to it and I love the art, so check this one out on Manta!
