I would have to say Money's Warfare. That was just a really random ending. I was ticked I wasted my time watching it. Another one that I recently just finished is on the top of my worst ending list - IRIS. Loved the drama but the end made me really mad.

There is obviously something that keeps him on top. Can't be bad acting. Can't be bad singing. Can't be bad looks. I think he rocks. He is the reason I keep coming back for more. Want bad acting? Go look at a Thailand drama. They are beyond brutal.
