Cheese in the Trap: Episode 16 (Final)

Well, it’s over. After all that furor, we’re finally at the end of Cheese in the Trap, and it’s a decidedly muted affair. Is it a terrible finale? I don’t think it’s quite that. But I also don’t think it’s the kind of finale that’ll satisfy anybody, no matter which ship you’re on or whether you feel the behind-the-scenes controversy was an utter outrage or entirely irrelevant. I do feel like we got a close to our major arcs and a wind-down to the conflicts and resolutions—I’m just left wishing the journey there had been more satisfying. Oh, the what-could-have-beens with this drama. It may haunt it forever.

FINAL EPISODE RECAP

After being shoved into traffic, Seol is rushed to the hospital. A worried Jung runs alongside the gurney, but is forced to wait outside as she’s taken into surgery.

Thinking of the time Jung first asked her out, she wonders to herself, “Why did I take Sunbae’s hand that time? I knew he was odd, and that I was afraid. I must have been aware of him too, even if I acted like I wasn’t. Behind that sweet smile, he was cold, lonely, and child-like. That sunbae had a wholly different face that only I saw, that he only showed to me—I must have been curious about that bare face.”

Seol’s family arrives at the hospital, and Jung informs them that Seol broke a rib and damaged some organs, which sends Mom reeling. It’s a relief when the doctor declares the surgery successful.

In-ho’s at piano practice with his still-injured hand when he receives a call from Nerdy explaining that In-ha’s gotten herself into some trouble. In-ho hurries to the police station, where she’s currently sitting in a daze, not answering the officer’s questions. In-ho checks to make sure that his sister’s okay, and is told that it’s the other party who’s injured and unconscious. He asks for an explanation, but Nerdy doesn’t have one and In-ha’s not forthcoming.

That’s when Jung bursts into the station and grabs In-ha, spitting fury while In-ha defensively blurts, “It was an accident! I did nothing wrong.”

The others intervene to pull Jung away, and he warns In-ho that if anything happens to Seol, he’ll kill him.

Jung storms out, and the pieces start to fall into place for In-ho, who chases him out to ask for information. He asks which hospital she’s at, but Jung growls that he’d have a lot of nerve to show himself.

In-ho runs to the hospital anyway, pausing before approaching Seol’s family. They already know his sister is responsible, and all he can do is hang his head and say repeatedly that he’s sorry and that he’ll take full responsibility. Mom asks how, and the family ushers her away before she collapses. Jung tells In-ho to go.

Another call from Nerdy sends In-ho running back to the police station, though too late to prevent In-ha from being dragged away. Nerdy explains that In-ha’s legal representation showed up with paperwork, and In-ho recognizes the chairman’s secretary’s name and calls. He’s told that In-ha will be “kept under protection” until the situation is resolved.

That means locked up in a psych ward, and she’s dragged off by men who ignore her pleas to be let go. The secretary reports to the chairman, who was behind the order.

In-ho arrives at the psych ward and demands that In-ha be released, but is told firmly that he’ll have to wait till visiting hours tomorrow. He barely holds himself back from acting out in anger, and ends up sleeping the night there.

In the morning, he’s allowed to see In-ha, who’s still in disbelief that the chairman would lock her up after she’d done so much for him over the years. In-ho is surprised that the chairman and not Jung was behind this, and also to hear her talking so plainly about spying on Jung. But she calls him out for doing the same.

In-ha begs her brother to get the chairman to release her, then tries to storm out of the room, which only gets her dragged off again.

In-ho calls the chairman right away, but is rebuffed by his secretary, who adds the warning that persisting will only be bad for In-ha.

Chairman Yoo visits Seol’s parents in the hospital to assure them that he’ll give Seol the best attention, from requesting the best doctors and paying the bill. Jung watches with a dark face while his father says he wants to help his son’s friend, knowing Dad’s not as altruistic as that.

Jung isn’t pleased about In-ha being locked up in a psychiatric hospital, where the chairman can have her deemed delusional or prone to uncontrollable impulses. Jung argues that this allows her to escape taking responsibility for her actions, but his father only sees the situation as it pertains to his company and public image—if she’s taken to court over this, she’ll likely drag Taerang’s name into everything. This way, he can keep both In-ha and Seol’s parents quiet. That’s pretty cold, old man.

Jung argues that Seol could be injured irreparably from the accident, to which his father says readily that he’ll just throw more money at her—he can tack on additional settlement funds to keep her parents from making a fuss.

On top of that, he blames Jung for making him step in to handle matters like this, exclaiming, “Why do things like this always happen with you? If you couldn’t clean up the aftermath, you shouldn’t have started things in the first place!”

Dad says he thought things had quieted after In-ho’s hand accident, but says this shows that he shouldn’t have dated Seol in the first place: “And if she hadn’t been seeing you, she wouldn’t have suffered this either!” Jung looks up at this, startled. No, don’t look at me with those noble idiot eyes!

Jung sits by Seol’s bedside while she remains unconscious, and she thinks, “The more I came to know Sunbae, more than feeling unfamiliar or afraid, I felt fluttery, and also pained. So I didn’t want to leave him to be alone.”

Jung thinks, “At first, I didn’t know either—that I would come to like anyone, or how full that could make my heart feel, or how scary. I just wanted to be with you for as long as I could. I thought all I needed was you to be with me. I couldn’t understand why people looked at me with those eyes, why they hated me. But now I think I know—what I trampled on was their hearts, and their feelings.” He sheds a tear at the realization: “And how much that hurts.”

He wonders why he didn’t know until this happened to her… and Seol opens her eyes. She thinks to him, “Don’t say anything. I know what happened, and I know why. I know how you’re feeling right now, too.”

They have a silent conversation, their thoughts in tune as they look at each other. Jung thinks how being with him could result in more pain for her, and she thinks back that he shouldn’t feel uneasy, because “I won’t ever run away.”

“Is that really okay?” he thinks. “Is it really okay that I don’t let go of this hand?” Seol falls back asleep.

When she wakes up next, it’s her family’s heads she sees hovering above her bed. Her brother steps out to get Jung from the hallway, but he’s gone.

In her hospital room, In-ha throws her food trays to the ground and refuses to see In-ho, although he spends days waiting outside. He hears about In-ha’s continued rejection of IV drips and food; if things continue, they’ll have to put her in restraints.

In-ho gets the nurse to allow him inside briefly to talk to In-ha very briefly, though it’s through her locked door. He reminds her that this isn’t helping her case for being let go, then adds, “It’s not true that you have nobody with you. So don’t give up like your life is all over. I need you, noona. So make sure to eat. I’ll keep waiting outside.”

At least his words finally stir a reaction in In-ha, and she wipes at her tears.

Nerdy joins In-ho to inform him that Seol woke up, which brings a small smile of relief to his face.

Seol’s friends visit her in the hospital, and everyone wonders why Jung hasn’t visited at all since she’s been awake, considering he was constantly here while she was unconscious. Eun-taek is the one who points out that maybe he’s feeling guilty for being associated with the person who did this to Seol, but in any case it’s clear Seol feels disappointed at his absence.

Everyone’s surprised when Nerdy arrives and asks to speak to Seol alone. He tells her about In-ha’s current state, and how she’s been locked up and is refusing to see her brother, and how the chairman is responsible and Jung is out of touch. He asks Seol hesitantly if she could talk to Jung about her situation, knowing that it’s a lot to ask.

Jung sits at home, ignoring his phone, letting the messages pile up. He eyes the couple ring on his finger and thinks of Seol’s instruction to never remove it or lose it… and pulls it off. Nooooo.

Seol is released from the hospital and taken home by her family, who stiffen upon spotting In-ho waiting outside their building. He’s contrite and heavy-hearted, apologizing again while acknowledging that any amount of apology is insufficient.

But surprisingly, Seol’s father says gruffly, “You’ve suffered too.” He pats In-ho’s shoulder, and the family steps aside to let them talk.

They sit at Uncle’s bar awkwardly, and when she mentions In-ha’s name, In-ho cuts in to say that he’s really, really sorry. Seol hands him an envelope, and he opens it to find a legal agreement wherein Seol acknowledges the situation as an accident.

“It’s not because I forgive Baek In-ha,” Seol says. “I’m just too tired of it. I want to settle it quickly and return to my regular life.”

In-ho can only say that he wishes there were a better word to express how sorry and how thankful he is. Seol wishes In-ho well at his piano competition, though she won’t be able to keep her promise to see it.

Jung tenders his resignation at Taerang Group, shocking his father, and explains that as a child he hadn’t wanted his father to think him strange, and therefore bottled things up and hid them. “I must have thought that since I’m someone who can’t be understood by others, I didn’t need to understand other people.” So he judged people and hurt them, not understanding how it felt.

Jung says that while he previously denied that he was strange, now he’s not sure, and thus asks for time to figure out who he is. His father admits, “I didn’t want you to be like me. That’s what I feared the most.” Jung replies, “But we’re quite similar, aren’t we?”

Jung packs up his apartment, and pauses to see an old book tucked into the corner—the signed piano score he’d gotten for In-ho in high school.

In-ha is surprised to receive a visit from Jung, who tells her—firmly, but without rancor—that he can’t forgive her, and that they ought not see each other again. She starts to protest, saying that the three of them were such good friends, but he tells her to live her own life now, apart from his family. “Let’s not be caught by the past anymore,” he advises. In-ha breaks down in tears.

On his way out, Jung encounters In-ho, who’s told the good news that his sister will be allowed a release soon. Jung informs In-ho that there will be a shortened summary trial, and advises him to help In-ha cope with her punishment.

In-ho agrees, and thanks Jung, adding that he’s sorry: “I didn’t know that Baek In-ha and I had hurt your feelings. It’s too late now, but I was sorry.”

Jung pulls out the score from his bag, saying, “It would have been nice if I’d given it to you then.” He hands it over, then walks away. In-ho looks down at the score, stunned.

Jung drops by Seol’s house next, where he apologizes to her disappointed parents for his absence. Before he can say anything to Seol, she speaks up first to say that she has heard what Jung did to In-ha, and why In-ha retaliated.

“Truthfully, I did blame you a little,” she says. “But thinking it over while we were apart, in the end it was an accident.” She proposes that they return to how they were before.

But Jung’s face is long, and he asks, “How long will you be able to accept me like this?” Knowing she won’t be able to always shoulder the burden, he says, “Let’s break up.”

Seol blinks back tears and asks why, because she’s okay with him. He answers that he knows she’d try hard to understand and accept him, as she’s done thus far: “But while you were struggling on your own, growing tired, and getting hurt, to be honest I didn’t understand why you did it. The problem is mine, and I was the one who should have been making the effort.”

That’s why he wants to see her again later, after he’s figured things out. But that’s not now. Seol sees that his finger doesn’t wear her ring.

Some time later, Seol’s family worries that she’s still hurting from the breakup, spending all her time shut in her room. Joon says that they have to hire a new part-timer soon and sighs that In-ho had attracted a lot of customers—just as In-ho steps inside the noodle shop.

He gives Mom and Dad a set of long underwear (aw, like a true son) and thanks them for their help, wishing them good health. He means to leave right away but the family insists that he eat here, some of their former warmth restored.

Joon tells his sister of In-ho’s visit, and while she’s spent most of her days in bed, she does get up at that.

In-ho packs up his apartment, looks around wistfully, and heads out with his bags. He’s surprised when Seol shows up to say goodbye, and to wish him luck in his competition today.

She calls after him, “Baek In-ho-sshi. I don’t want to regret anything. So I hope you can do that too.”

“Dog Hair, you’ve really grown up,” he says. He thanks her for showing him a smiling face, then heads off, not looking back.

As In-ho arrives at the concert hall, he answers a call from his gangster boss’s sidekick. He starts to say he’ll pay a portion of his debt first, but gets cut off with the news that In-ho’s lawyer settled the debt. Furthermore, the boss was presented with paperwork to keep from going after In-ho again. In-ho surmises that this was Jung’s doing.

When In-ho takes the stage, he sees both his New Teacher and Old Teacher clapping for him in the audience. In-ha’s there, too, looking subdued, tearing up as he plays.

Seol’s family hears of In-ha’s punishment, some community service and a fine. Then Seol gets a series of texts from In-ha, saying that she’s sorry, and also letting her know that Jung is taking a 3 o’clock flight today.

Jung waits at the gate, thinking back to their happier couple moments, while Seol sits at home. When the clock ticks over to 3:01 and Jung gets up to make his departure, her tears come flooding.

Three years later. (*swear words* *pulls hair*)

Seol walks into an office building, explaining that she got the company job she wanted, but that it’s just another door to pass through—every day is still a fight.

Her old problems are just as present now, just in new form: There are oblivious and persistent guys like Oh Young-gon here too, as well as eager-to-please hangers-on like Min-soo, and Sang-chul-like sunbaes who angle after Seol to do their work for them.

But while she still finds it difficult managing all these relationships, she thinks that she’s long stopped getting worked up worrying about every last incident.

She pauses to chat laughingly with Nerdy sunbae, who tells her that In-ho got into a music school, his hand all healed. Nerdy’s still seeing In-ha, running to greet her in the lobby as she complains loudly at how late he is. “Why do you keep me waiting?” she whines, “I missed you!” Seol even manages a laugh to see them together.

In-ho plays the piano at a restaurant, and In-ha leads the diners in a round of applause, loudly fawning over “world-famous pianist Baek In-ho” to anyone within earshot. She demands a cheery song and dances with Nerdy, looking happy and light-hearted.

Seol works late that night and checks her email, seeing the long list of messages she’s written to Jung that have gone unread. Bora tells her to come by her shop tonight for some news, and with a sigh, Seol flicks off her computer.

Bora and Eun-taek are as happy and lovey as ever; Bora owns a clothing shop, and Eun-taek is a hot rising star, though he assures them that he’d never get too uppity to forget about Bora.

Bora attempts to give Seol a “present,” saying she won’t take no for an answer, but Seol rejects her friends’ attempt at yet another blind date, saying she’ll take care of her own love life.

But as she leaves, she admits to herself that she partly feels like that passion and interest is fading within her, and it feels bitter.

She crosses an intersection amidst a sea of pedestrians, passing Jung as he walks in the opposite direction. Belatedly she turns back for another look, but doesn’t see him anymore and continues on her way.

She wonders whether she’s ever thought or worked as hard to know someone other than him. She checks her emails again, seeing the long list of unread messages still there, and muses that perhaps he may need as much or more time than it took her to understand him.

Her mother calls her to dinner, and as she leaves the room, we see her computer screen update—the first email in the list changes from unread to read.

“Seol-ah!” Jung’s voice calls out.

And then we’re revisiting a flashback as Seol races down a path toward Jung, who greets her with an outstretched hand. She beams up at him, and places her hand in his.

 
COMMENTS

That’s… it?

That’s how you resolve an entire drama’s worth of fundamental relationship conflict and character struggle—you let him walk away for three years and figure it out offscreen, only to come back when he’s all healed so the romance can resume? Who do you think you are, Oh My Venus? (Except without the cute fanservice or good cheer or abs to soften the blow.)

Fuming. Or at least I would be, if I’d still had much hope left in the show by the time I’d reached the end, rather than being emotionally done.

I’m ultimately okay with the overall shape of the story, in the broadest sense—that Jung was brought around to understanding why his way of thinking was wrong, that he couldn’t expect Seol to understand and forgive all the time, and that he had to figure himself out first—but I do have major problems with the way this drama took us there. Putting aside the behind-the-scenes controversy for a minute, and looking at this purely from the standpoint of what was shown on my screen, I can’t believe the show crammed so much major development into about fifteen minutes of screen time. What an utter disservice to not only the actor and the character but to the entire drama as a whole.

And that development only came after the drama spent so much time painting Jung into a repetitive corner where he kept repeating his mistakes and made progress in baby steps that I worried we might never see him come fully around. I’d been trying to see hope in the way he was trying to meet Seol somewhere in the middle every time she called him out on his retaliatory behavior—with the underwear thief, with Young-gon, with Sang-chul—but that progress was crawling at a snail’s pace. There was so much opportunity to give us insight into his character and instead he was made nearly opaque, impenetrable to understanding, leaving us to wonder at his motives. I’m thankful to Park Hae-jin for doing as good a job as he did because in the hands of another actor I could have very well hated the character, but I always felt like there was something very interesting and worthwhile going on underneath his surface. Now that the drama’s over, I’m just mad that we never got a chance to see more of that.

I make most of my comments from the perspective of someone who has had limited experience of the webtoon and is mostly watching this as a drama on its own, independent of that other world where additional plots and character insights are available. And even if I’d been an avid fan of the webtoon, that’s still the approach I’d take in judging this drama, because regardless of your material, you have to succeed in the medium you’ve chosen—and on that front, I think Cheese bungled its golden opportunity.

It started out so special and fresh and interesting—and say what you will of this PD’s story choices, she does have talent in evoking mood and pensiveness and finding small moments that draw out emotion. I’ll give her that much, because she was responsible for all those early bits that I adored, whether it’s in the details of direction or in encouraging her cast to find the most natural deliveries, or in playing with the motif of light or dark and flickering lights, or in creating tension and atmosphere.

But that skill means little when you lost your audience’s trust, and even without invoking conspiracy theories about her reasons for highlighting certain stories over others, I’d say that the end result was proof enough that she made some bad choices—the story suffered for the meandering throughline and loss of focus on the main characters.

The shift away from Jung is the obvious accusation, with all the hullaballoo in the media these days, and I can understand why webtoon fans would be particularly upset that he was shortchanged, especially if/because there was a ready-made, well-reasoned explanation for his personality, and the drama ignored it. It’s a shame, because watching only as a drama, Jung is difficult to grasp. But Seol suffered as well, partly because she got less and less to do the more she became an object caught between two men, and partly because she was more interesting when with Jung, and we were denied that.

Sadly, the errant focus on In-ho also did him no favors, which is a crying shame because I actually really like In-ho and found his arc very moving. This is a case where I don’t care as much that the character was softer/nicer/different than his webtoon version, because barring fundamental issues of character, I think a drama is allowed to make tweaks in the adaptation process, as can the actor portraying him. And if he had experienced the same progression of character but limited those beats to a few key moments, the way I suspect the character was originally intended, then he would have torn my heart to pieces and I would have loved it. Less is more!

Frankly, it’s not like Cheese is the first drama to start strong and end with a whimper, nor is it the first to not live up to its source material, or to even have questionable behind-the-scenes discord. It’s not like the drama killed my puppy or promised me the world and delivered a lump of coal instead. Ultimately it’s just one in a sea of many shows that could have been greater—should have been greater—and yet didn’t manage to pull it off in the end. (It may be the first to aggressively court a lead actor and then shaft him without explanation, but we’ve already covered that travesty.)

What disappoints me the most about this drama (outside of the Great Park Hae-jin Incident) is that it was actually great—and it could have easily continued being great. There was no reason it couldn’t have been an all-time best rom-com; it was certainly heading in that direction. It’s actually more confusing than angering that Cheese ignored solid story material in favor of the pedestrian, because these last two episodes in particular were oddly very predictable and dull, plotwise. One could argue that it was really the last four, or last six, or last eight episodes that dropped the narrative ball, but even so I think the last two really made a weird turn and felt bizarrely old-fashioned. They felt like something out of a late-’90s or early-2000s Cinderella drama, of a time during Hallyu 1.0 when Prince Charmings were still charming and cell phones folded in the middle.

Once the dust settles and the sting fades, I’ll probably just shrug it off as another missed opportunity, to join the vast majority of other dramas that coulda been contenders. The drama did, at least, give us shining moments of Park Hae-jin and Kim Go-eun (and yes, I’ll even say Seo Kang-joon), and I’ll wish the best for their next projects. The PD, on the other hand, lands on my temporary shitlist. Maybe extended temporary.

I don't get how you can change the story, the k drama writing has to change this was so good at the beggining like I was so intrigued!

Suddenly it all ends like there is actually no drama NO DRAMA the hole thing is one BLAH and I do get that they are traying to change their ways to make stories more humane not like a tale and everything to square BUT IS LIKE "SHE WAS PRETTY " "OH MY VENUS" "MARIE ANTONETTE" and freaking "HAPPY ENDING" they were so good at the beggining but they fell flat cause they make the couple fall in love to quickly and then they want three dimesional characters and they make everyone GOOD so there is no real conflict the main couple is together you KNOW they like each other and the conflit is somehow stupid like is just to say what you really feel and thats it!

It's such sloppy, lazy storytelling. I never expected this show to have a closed ending all tied up in a pretty bow. Having everything more or less open for everyone (except maybe Bora and Eun Taek) would not have bothered me, but to make it neat for everyone but the main pair. Wow. Wow wow wow. I don't even... what even... how... who... I'm speechless. So much wasted time. So much unnecessary and uninteresting BS in recent episodes that could have been used to develop the main characters. I can't. I really really can't.

I know!!! If they weren't going to give us a good ending with seol and Jung the LEAST they could have done was given us Jung and inho mending there friendship but did they even give us that? noooooo instead we're left with a crappy half ass done ending... hell my 2 year old niece could have come up with something better, thanks a lot show for ruining something special ?

Great comment bips99.

I wonder, too, just WHY and HOW they even think of letting Jung's character development go offscreen. Why? Why? Why? How can it even go OFF - the – FREAKING – SCREEN ??? ~~~tearings :'(

You're comment made me smile despite my disappointment in these supposed to be wonderful drama!! I was literally looking on how many minutes left before the ending, having my hopes high, just to be shattered by their OFFSCREEN development!!

Well considering how they were removing already filmed and important scenes of Jung, I didn't expect them to develop his character. So doing it off-screen made sense considering everything that happened, not that it did the drama any favors.

It reminds me of Marvel's treatment of Cyclops. They made an 8 months’ time skip and during that time they made him the most hated person in the world. Everyone constantly says how horrible he is and everything is his fault, but no one elaborates what he has done. Everything has happened off screen even though it is very important to the current stories.

love you freakin' comment! just makes sense... how can, for the life of us, viewers, i cannot fathom, them shoving Jung's development OFFSCREEN when they know people are following the drama for jung, seol and the story of them two.

just baffles me and would do eternally...

you only do that when the response for their pairing and/or their story OFFS the viewers but that is not the case.

what a wasted investment on viewership only to go haywire at the last quarter.

Is it just me who is upset about how InHa got a get out of jail free card?

AN ACCIDENT?!?! What? Where I live that's called attempted murder. Manslaughter 1 if Seol had died. (Down from homicide with Heat of Passion).

I re-watched that scene. She had intent, pushed Seol into the street, then pushes her again even further as Seol desperately tries to hang on. Would a reasonable person foresee a car coming? Yes.

She should have stayed in Psych ward to get therapy.

The times she says she will go crazy (honey, you already are) and Inho asks why she is there (you do get that dangerous behavior like that is crazy?) had me pulling my hair.
they even treat her well there. Ppl have been locked away in a psych ward for far less.
Rant over.

Even though InHa was crazy and definitely needed therapy, I thought a psych ward was too much. For an egoistic or at least, public-mindful girl as her, being trapped in a psych ward is hell, especially with the threat of restraintment. What she needed was a lot of communication and reality and therapy, not a beat down like a psych ward. I'm just glad she didn't go zombie after the experience.

Ahhh, the Baek siblings. Even if they acted entitled, ratted on their "supposed brother", treated their benefactors like an atm machine, looked down on other people beneath them, lied to get what they want, backstabbed other people, engaged with gangsters and even almost killed someone, the show still wanted us to feel sorry for them and forgive them. Because, as I got from this whole fiasco, Jung is the one to balme for everything. Everything. So he must fix things for everyone and get lost.

2

That's why it's a punishment.

But it also gives her what she needs. Being held accountable for her damn actions.

@Peeps - What frustrates me is that after seeing the flashbacks of the three, I was hoping for some growth from all of them and healing as well. They have all suffered from the dad and from all the misunderstandings surrounding them. Their characters deserved more than what we witnessed.

1

@Peeps

Totally agree, psych ward was a bit much, but therapy has long been sorely needed.

Admittedly pushing someone in front of a car does seem pretty insane, but it's a little hard to totally believe that's Inha rather than the drama so... dk.

0

It's not just you. I got angry at In ho for not reprimanding his sister, just once, for what she did to seol. Seol could have died. I wondered if his reaction would have been different if he had being dating seol instead. And the show proceeded to give her a happy, lovely ending. In ha had a fairytale ending despite all she'd done but Jung and Seol grew apart. Wow, Baek in ha, you're a genius. Your plan did succeed after all. I guess the writer was rooting for the Baek siblings from the start. I hate how they made the innocent people (Seol and Jung) in this show suffer the most, until the very end. How dare they show us that Seol's life never got out of the cycle of dealing with the likes of Sang Chul, Min Soo and Oh young gon. What was the point of episodes 1 to 14 if she didn't learn from dealing with those people in her past how to deal with those in her future.

2

I have to give Lee Sung-kyung props for committing to that utterly batshit turn, but the psych ward thing could not BE more obviously kdramalike if it tried.

1

You know, I can get on board with In-ha being forgiven..... except for the fact that she doesn't seem to have any actual remorse for what she's done to Seol (and that text does not count, nope!). Not an in-person apology, no apparent reflection on what she's done...hell, I know she's on the point of a breakdown in the police station but watching her insist to Jung that she didn't do anything wrong and HE is responsible for the fact that she pushed Seol into traffic, really got my goat.

She seems more caught up in the fact that she's in the psych ward than the fact that she's there because she. you know, NEARLY KILLED SOMEONE.

2

WTF!!!! In Ha got more closure (and an on-screen relationship) than Seol and Jung? Who were the actual leads in this drama?

1

It would be Murder 2° where I live.

I am so disappointed in the way this drama ended...feel cheated! Could have at least had one more episode...

0

A psych ward is exactly what she needed. And therapy. How can you think it was too much? All throughout this drama, this woman was out of control. Megalomonia, narcissism, abuse-acting out. She has issues in childhood and it shows up in adulthood. She is a mental case. She needs therapy. She tried to kill someone. She vandalized. She lied and manipulated. Where else did she deserve to be BUT a psych ward?

One of the things I hate most - blaming others for your own mistakes.

This drama made me wonder how often and normal this must be for almost everyone to keep on blaming Jung for the actions of so many of the characters. It made me sad to think that this is the norm, that in real life, many of us would rather put the blame on some outside force that "made us do it", rather than our own choices.

Makes you contemplate life and the fragile relationships we build, where the world is always about me me me me me.

Exactly. When I saw "Jung's mistakes" repeatedly in the recap, I wonder why he got blamed and pitied repeatedly for someone else's mistakes. I want to ask would a saint do better than Jung? Well then find one in reality!!! In the end all those who take advantage of others who wronged in the first place and trashed HIS feelings got away with a superficial "I'm sorry" and live on like nothing ever happened. What a crappy value and world view this show imposed on the audience - is this truly what this show about?!

I thought the idea of the show was how these 2 help each other. She tears down his walls and softens the hard edges. He teaches her to stand up for herself and makes her realise that she is precious.

This is it. I think the PD had been trying hard to portray what a sick bastard Jung really is, and when Seol keep accepting him, she gets punished. Firsy he get punished in to thim air. To be alone, and deserve no one's love like a true psycho should be. Remember someone even pointed out that psycho's aren't human? Then Seol get punished, how dare her still love that sick man unconditionally while 8 last eps the PD had tried so hard to show that In Ho is the better deal for her. Lastly she punished us. How dare we see Jung in a different light. Understanding his behavior. Her punishment is hard. Did you see that they also shoving that piano boy in that extra special? Thank you PD nim. I am giving you finger, guess which one?!

exactly, the change went BOTH ways, it wasn't a case of ~plucky Candy taming the beast~. And for a while, you could actually see the changes in Seol, learning to stand up for herself and deal with her own life.

I'm disgusted that they actually sidelined her so hard later, and for what? Piano scenes?

0

You said it. Why did Seol get shafted? That annoys me the most. I wanted more Jung, I was okay with Inho's expanded story, but so disappointed. Coulda shoulda woulda been a really good series.

1

That's the original idea that got lost in translation!! Unfortunately!!

0

Agreed. In my mind, seol calls Jung at the airport (because she can't get there herself. Injury). She tells him that she understands he doesn't want her to be hurt but that him leaving hurts her too. She gets that he wants to figure himself out, but what is she supposed to do in the meantime? Wait for him? With no word and for how long? Forget him and move on? How can she without any closure?

She tells him when things were hard, she liked having him there to lean on so if he wants to find himself, she wants to do that with him. If he's afraid shell be too burdened and accepting, he can tell her. Just as he told her to stand up to sang chul, she will take what he says into consideration and act accordingly. She says thank you for the time they spent together and hangs up.

He listens at the airport with tears coming down. Time and people pass. Nighttime at the Hong household and the doorbell rings. Jung apologizes for coming so late and asks if seol is up. Dad says no as seol appears. Jung hugs her crying. Voiceover Jung says I'm sorry for making you cry. Voiceover seol says I know.

Three years later. Drama epilogue and we find out Jung spent his time working at the noodle shop. Business boomed not because of his good looks but his marketing strategies. He interns at a small noodle company. Cue office montage of him smiling and acting comfortably with coworkers. One scene where someone wrongs him and a glint of old Jung is back. He blinks and shakes his head and has a normal, appropriate human reaction to what happened. Seol voiceovers that he keeps meetings with his father at a minimum because his old tendencies still surface. Cue scenes of them both busy and dealing with annoying coworkers. Seol voiceovers that the road here wasn't smooth and life is still hard but that they always try to go to each other first.

Final scene. Haggard seol greets haggard Jung off work. They both vy to be the huggee instead of the hugger. Seol wins and beams giddily because she's wrapped in park hae jins arms. I mean, yoo Jungs arms. She pats his head and ruffles his hair. Then gives him an equal hug. He breaks out into a smile. The single lamplight illuminating them flickers and turns off. End.

Whew. I feel much better now. Sad for what the show could have been. There was enough material in there for a good drama if they had paced it out better and kept the quiet, introspective tone they had in the beginning and tried to shoehorn into the last few minutes. Oh well.

I thought for certain the ending would be an invitation to eat out from Jung to Seol and they would meet up and try again. I NEEDED TO SEE THEM INTERACT! Very disappointed. No closure. We could have done without the dinner scene with In Ho and In Ha. Hearing about them would have been fine. Hearing about Jung, not fine. My heart tells me there has to be a second season. My brain telling me nope, you've just been cheated. This was a great drama. Smart, touching, amazing acting, wonderful chemistry.. all that, but still couldn'the end well.

Great idea. They went on vacation, had a great time at the beach and their relationship grew and evolved as they each became better people because of/for each other!

I don't think In ho ever truly cared about Jung as a person. Being friendly came easy to him and he was more than willing to trade that for patronage from the Chairman. I don't mean he was a calculating child when he entered the house, he just understood what was expected of him. As a talented, good looking, affable person he just accepted what was offered to him without thinking that people would want genuine feelings in return. People were always doing things for him- jobs he wasn't qualified for, piano time and mentoring he didn't pay for, money and attempts to protect him from the cringing junior mobster etc. All given freely because people were attracted to his bright star. Things received easily aren't valued as much as when they are laboriously gain. In ho didn't realize how hard real friendship was for Jung and how deep the feeling of betrayal was. Jung being Jung, the indirect retribution was brutal
There was no bromance to mend. At best is what happened. They looked back with a bit more understanding of the other's perspective. They didn't forgive each other, but they moved on.

1

And In-Ho misses out on the love of Soel's family, too. Instead of getting a family, he's stuck with In-Ha. Poor nerdy is stuck with her, too. And In-Ha is "cured by love." Ugha!

0

I agree they needed time and distance. It was enough to know he really loved her and wanted to try to become a better person in order to have a chance to be with her. She needed a break from the upheaval he was always causing to focus on her goals and gain perspective about herself. When she didn't protest when he broke up with her, it was because she knew they needed time apart.
While loving someone can give you the motivation to change, you have to do the work yourself. While her acceptance and understanding was a balm to his heart, it was also enabling. He realized that.
I do wish they would have at least done some voiceovers of the emails. Was he writing back? Even if they only sent casual updates, it would be the mutual contact that counted. I think they met again, but we are not given any clue as to if he made progress and that is the biggest disappointment. He was never going to be "normal", even with the love of a good woman, but to be truly aware of his behavior and try to control himself would have been enough.

Agree. And also they made this character of Yoo Jung to be a selfish, ignorant, and bad jerk. I mean, seriously.. After what Seol have been through, he just left her like that, for years, and the reason.."to love you properly.." And why they even bother to make special episode, it won't work well either.

I am annoyed aswell. I bet the PD got her views lowered because of this.

The only thing I hate is how Jung expects everything to come to him; hello, you have to chase things you want! I think: If Jung really loved her, he would stand up for her and rebel against his dad. But nooo; as always he expects everything to come to him while Seol always goes to them. I feel as if the ending was a fake one; an ending worth ripping off and starting again. If the K-Drama gods can hear us then they will make the ending change soon or better: HAVE A REMAKE WITH THE ACTORS/ACTRESSES!!

Edit: I feel as if the actress playing Hong Seol doesn't get enough roles on tv. I would like it if she did but hey: I don't expect much.
