the ratings weren't bad....according to the soompi forum goers, this drama received as high of a viewer's rating as I'm Sorry I Love You (MISA), so it could not have been a flop. Ppl just expected a lot outta this drama, since the writer wrote such a great drama last year (MISA), and also Bi was the lead.
Thank you n0_rulez

but the last episode was unforgettable
the way Da Jeong narrated bok-gu's life right from the beginning
she's the only one who know him really well, whats his every move
and i find she the most respected character
although she loved bok-gu, she let him go to eon seok
the last statement,
Da Jeong: The boy had the girl by his side once again,
In that warm and clear morning.
this ending is somewhat like sangdoo's
its a two-sided ending, whether bok-gu died or not its up to you to intepret
if he lives, he'll most probably be with eon seok..
then if he died and eon seok woke up, i doubt she will leave bok-gu to die alone, she most likely choose to die with him right there.
in both ways, they will still end up together as the narrator said
for enlightening us on the ending.
I too, thought the ending was dumb, until i read yours. But still tho, i still have this dissatisfaction about the ending. I thought if the writer could break away from her usual (and overused) endings, it would have been great. I saw the writer's previous works, Sangdoo and I'm Sorry, I love you aka. MISA, and i was hoping for a diff styled ending....but...
My interpretation of the ending:
However, I still very much enjoy this writer's works, so i'll be sure to catch her next yr's drama when it comes out.
