In Bloom


Shy florist Jongin meets pragmatic accountant Kyungsoo when Jongin is forced to deliver flowers to Kyungsoo's office because of an emergency. Too shy to ask Kyungsoo out, Jongin pretends to be a delivery guy so he can continue to see him.

Can also be read on AO3.



Hi everyone,

I'm a huge reader of Kaisoo fics but I always feel devastated when I read angsty ones where one or both of them get hurt badly, or omg even worse, one of them dies! I want my OTP to be happy - I'm a total sap like that. So that's why IN BLOOM is embarrassingly fluffy and cheesy and romantic and a little funny. For those who love tragic kaisoo above all, I am sorry in advance but you won't be finding anything tragic here otl.

I hope you will adore Jongin and Kyungsoo as I do. I really really reallyyyyy adore Jongin. I think this will be obvious to anyone from Chapter 1 lol. I can't help it. SORRY! He's my ILU <3

Last but definitely not least, truckloads of tulips and confetti go out to the amazing ING of Selcouth for coming up with such a beautiful poster.








Thanks also for all the congratulatory messages - I won't be able to reply them all but I read every single one and they all mean a lot to me;;;

I love this fic SO very much. Its been months since I finished, but I'm still not over the feels, laughs, and over-whelming happiness this amazing fic has left me with. I'll definitely be rereading it soon. But thank you SO MUCH author-nim for writing this. You have no idea how much this story means to me. It's not only one of my favorite fics of all time, but actually of my favorite things I've ever read period.

Chapter 28: Oh wow, then a lot of your stories are related to each other ! I like knowing that the characters I've come to know in other stories are the same :-)
I felt like the writing style of this story was different from the others, but maybe that's because it's an early work ?

By the way, just a small correction on the Kaisoo oneshot, when Kyungsoo and Jongin's dad say goodbye to each other, it should be : "안녕히가세요 (annyeonghi kaseyo)" to the one who leaves, and "안녕히계세요 (annyeonghi kyeseyo)" to the one who stays !
