Lucky Romance: Episode 16 (Final)

Does Fate control our destiny, or are we masters of our own Fate? Both are true, depending on how we choose to live our lives — we can let life pull us along, reacting to what we’re given, or we can take control and determine what we want out of this world. In order to do that, you have to conquer your fear, and that’s something each person must do for themselves.

 

 
EPISODE 16 RECAP

One year after breaking up, Su-ho and Bo-nui are each doing fine. Bo-nui takes care of Bo-ra as she continues to recover, and Su-ho has started a new business with Ryang-ha, Boss Won, and Chicken Ajusshi called Daebak Soft. One day they each get dressed a bit nicer than usual, and head out with eager smiles for a meeting.

But they aren’t meeting each other — Bo-nui is teaching a class of older citizens how to use modern technology, and Su-ho is going to his parents’ fishery for his father’s birthday party. Awww. Things are still awkward between Su-ho and his dad, but they’re both making the effort to mend their relationship (Dad even calls Chicken Ajusshi all the time to check on Su-ho, so sweet).

Mom wonders out loud how Bo-nui is doing, wishing she could be here too and wondering why she’s never called. She tells Su-ho that she doesn’t go to that fortuneteller anymore — he called Bo-nui a raccoon, and it upset her.

Amy courts a new client — a teenage tennis prodigy whose mother hesitates, thinking they should go with a bigger agency. The boy snarks that she’s lying about having been Gary Choi’s client, and Amy turns it around, telling his mother that she can teach him to be better at interviews.

Mother and son both freak out when Gary arrives just then, and excuse me but what is he wearing?? Amy complains to him about how hard it is to find a client as a freelance agent, but she congratulates him for winning Wimbledon and getting on the cover of Time magazine.

She asks if he’s seeing someone, given that she can never reach him, and Gary changes the subject (Can he date Bo-ra? They would be so cute together). He’s heading to Zeze Factory for the re-release of IF, but Amy declines to tag along.

Su-ho and Ryang-ha are also going to the re-release, and on the way Ryang-ha asks about the new game Su-ho is working on. Su-ho is tight-lipped about it, and they end up bickering hilariously over whether Ryang-ha is still a “major shareholder” (Su-ho: “There aren’t even any shares!”).

Awww, the Zeze team are so excited to see Su-ho again. They even got him a cake, though he says they did all the work and he’s just here to cheer them on. They’re hoping he’ll come back to Zeze, but Su-ho says he works for Daebak Soft now, and promises to become a professional threat to them, heh.

When Bo-nui arrives to see Bo-ra, she finds a note saying that Bo-ra is going to Seoul today. In the city, Bo-ra manages to snag her wheelchair on a curb, and Su-ho just happens to see her there though she doesn’t recognize him.

She asks for a push and he snaps himself out of it and helps her, and asks where her family is. He smiles when she says she came here all alone, and she asks for directions to Zeze Factory, where she’s going to meet someone. Bo-ra says that Su-ho seems familiar, especially his voice, but he doesn’t tell her they’ve met.

Dal-nim calls Bo-nui, who’s in a panic, to tell her that Bo-ra is at Zeze. Bo-ra tells Dal-nim that she came alone on purpose, and asks her to call Je Su-ho to see her. Dal-nim says he left already, asking if Bo-nui has mentioned him, but Bo-ra says that the problem is that she hasn’t.

Since Bo-nui tells her sister everything, it’s strange that she never ever talks about Su-ho or Zeze Factory. Bo-ra decided that she wants to meet this guy, and she’s disappointed that she missed him.

Gary arrives at Zeze and passes out little gifts, and they all talk about his Wimbledon win and how touching it was that his father was in the audience. Bo-ra calls Gary, who’s he’s surprised to see her here, but Dal-nim says that Bo-nui is on the way to pick her up.

Once they’re alone, Bo-ra is excited about the game featuring Gary, and he says that Bo-nui developed it for her. He only agreed to be the subject when he heard that it was for Bo-ra, to show her the world. Bo-ra asks for his autograph to prove that she knows him, and watches him adoringly while he indulges her.

Su-ho happens to see Bo-nui as she steps out of a taxi, and the sight of her freezes him. He doesn’t approach her, but just smiles a little and goes on his way.

Bo-nui catches Bo-ra and Gary taking selcas, and ha, they look so guilty. Bo-ra tells her sister that she saw the game, and thanks her for making it for her, easily aegyo-ing her way out of trouble.

Bo-nui talks to Gary alone, who says that he doesn’t mind Bo-ra calling him all the time. He asks if she plans to live out in the country forever, saying that it would be better for Bo-ra for them to move back to Seoul.

Later Bo-nui visits with Dal-nim and gets her invitation to Dal-nim’s and Ryang-ha’s wedding. Yay!! Bo-nui smiles that Dal-nim is finally marrying the man she’s been crushing on for years, still under the impression that it was always Ryang-ha. Dal-nim finally tells her it was someone else, but she doesn’t say who.

Dal-nim warns her that she’d better come to the wedding, and she knows that Bo-nui is worried she’ll see Su-ho there. She says that Bo-nui can’t avoid him forever, and Bo-nui promises to be there.

Back at his office, Su-ho pulls out his photo of himself with Bo-nui and Bo-ra, and muses that Bo-ra is doing to well, she’ll be walking soon. “Good job, Bo-nui.”

Back home, Bo-ra gives Bo-nui a game development contest flyer she saw at Zeze, and urges her to enter. It turns out that Dal-nim gave her the flyer to give to Bo-nui, thinking that if she won the hefty cash prize, she could worry less about money and start thinking of other things.

Okay, Dal-nim and Ryang-ha baby-talking to each other is the best AND worst thing ever. Dal-nim fusses at him for forgetting to give Su-ho his wedding invitation, because she has big plans for Su-ho and Bo-nui to reunite there. Ryang-ha whines that their wedding will be about someone else’s romance, and they’ll just be supporting characters. HA.

Gary calls Amy to meet, and asks if she’s had any luck signing an athlete. She swears she’s this close, meaning no, she hasn’t, so Gary casually tells her to sign him up. He’s left IM Sports, because he decided he’d rather work with Amy alone than with a big agency.

Bo-nui also gets exciting news — she passed the first round of the game contest. Bo-ra asks about her game, but Bo-nui is vague, promising to tell her sister more when she works out a good ending. All she says is that it’s very different from IF.

Su-ho paces his office, concerned because the investor has several complaints about his new game. Basically, he wants it almost completely overhauled. Su-ho decides to scrap it altogether and give up on the deal, but boss Won thinks that they should at least try to give the investor what he wants.

Su-ho argues that every time they do that he comes back with more complaints, and they’ll never be able to please him. Chicken Ajusshi says that they need money to do anything, so Su-ho decides to find a way to raise money without an investor.

Ryang-ha also pushes Su-ho to just do what the investor wants, then make the game he wants to make after getting the money, but Su-ho refuses. Ryang-ha says he’s going to arrange one more meeting (ha, Su-ho literally just goes LALALA I CAN’T HEAR YOU), and drops a wedding invitation on the table.

Su-ho and Bo-nui work on their respective games, and one night Bo-ra wakes after having a nightmare. Bo-nui tells her it was just a dream, holding her hand, and Bo-ra says that she waited for so long at the hospital for her sister to come hold her hand. She remembers the nurse telling her that Bo-nui never came into her room.

Bo-nui says that she was scared, but Bo-ra says that finally hearing her voice is what made her feel strong enough to fight to get well. She also remembers a man, though she mostly recalls his voice telling her to love people with all her heart, and hold tightly to their hand. She wants to thank that man for bringing Bo-nui to her.

Dal-nim surprises Bo-nui by showing up at her next presentation, and she jokingly asks if Bo-nui needs the rabbit costume. But Bo-nui didn’t even bring her red beans and salt — she doesn’t need them anymore, now that Bo-ra is better.

Nobody knows where Su-ho went when he doesn’t show up to Ryang-ha’s investor meeting, and his game proposal isn’t on his computer anymore. He’s secretly gone to the same game competition where Bo-nui is preparing to compete, though he doesn’t look surprised when she steps onto the stage.

Bo-nui, on the other hand, is very startled to see Su-ho present his game. Bo-nui’s game is based on her own life — it’s about a girl who is unlucky, who loses everything and receives a letter one year later. In flashback, we see that when Su-ho had said his last goodbye, he’d slipped a note into Bo-nui’s hand.

Shim Bo-nui was my light, not a blade. She held my hand when I needed it. She made me smile when I was embarrassed. She stayed by my side when I was sick. When I lost everything, she made me believe everything would be okay as long as I had her. That light guided me out of my cave… Shim Bo-nui saved the life of Je Su-ho. Thank you, my love.

Bo-nui continues that in her game, the girl goes undertakes a long journey to reply back to the letter. As she travels, she remembers the person who sent her the letter, the person who protected and cared for her. Some call her a blade, and some call her a ray of light, and on her journey she has to decide which side to trust.

Su-ho’s game is also his own story, about a boy trying to escape the cave he’s been hiding in. It’s dark and lonely, but the outside world is scary, so he needs light to escape the cave. The light is like a miracle that teaches him to trust, as he escapes the dark cave and searches for the light.

Both of their presentations go well, and they leave the contest feeling optimistic. They meet on a path outside the building, and smile at each other. Bo-nui thinks that she’s sorry she took so long, and Su-ho thinks that she was too slow, “You pretty fool.”

Bo-nui decides to only think of herself and her happiness, and Su-ho thinks that she made the right decision. Without needing words, they grab each other in a big hug.

Ryang-ha literally dances into the Zeze office, but everyone besides Dal-nim pretends he’s not even there. Ha, he comes so often he’s driving them nuts. He and Dal-nim flirt outrageously, then use what I’m sure is a most amazing app to choose their honeymoon destination before he’s dragged out.

Later Bo-nui waits for Su-ho in his office, and he slumps in to tell her the news. Bo-nui takes in Su-ho’s dejected expression, and asks if the investor didn’t like their idea to launch their games simultaneously. She starts to say they should release Su-ho’s game first, but he bursts out that the investor loved the idea. You little troll.

They rush to tell Bo-ra the good news, and soon Su-ho is helping the sisters move back into their old apartment. Bo-ra is happy to be home, and Su-ho lets the girls go in together for the first time in three years, while he waits on the roof.

Bo-nui has put everything back where it was, just as Bo-ra remembers it. She even put back up Bo-ra’s drawing, and the pictures of Su-ho. They remember what they said when they put up Bo-ra’s picture of their family, that their parents would always be watching over them, and Bo-ra says that their family has five people now.

Bo-nui finds Su-ho on the roof and backhugs him, and promises to be good to him from now on. Su-ho angles for a smooch, but gets fed instead, ha.

Bo-ra pouts at Su-ho for pretending not to know her that time outside Zeze, and they bicker over her not even recognizing him at all. He offers to help her with her times tables to improve her memory, and looks horrified when she says she hates math. They’re going to be the cutest siblings.

Amy and Gary arrive to welcome them home, to Su-ho’s annoyance, and they discover that Bo-ra actually invited them. Su-ho tries to slam the door when Ryang-ha and Dal-nim also show up, but they shove their way in and make themselves at home. Poor Su-ho.

Some time later, Su-ho and Bo-nui go on a picnic, and they both freeze when the beautiful day is shattered by a crack of thunder. Su-ho nervously assures Bo-nui it’s fine, then lightning flashes. It starts to rain, and they just stand there getting soaked.

Su-ho is ready to give up on the picnic, but Bo-nui says they should stay. They run together in the rain, happy and enjoying each other’s company.

Bo-nui narrates that nothing has changed. They don’t know what the future holds, and fate will sometimes be cruel. Su-ho adds that they’ve decided to live in the moment.

Epilogue. The fortuneteller packs up his belongings and leaves his now-empty studio. After their picnic, Su-ho and Bo-nui walk in the now-clear air, and Bo-nui asks if Su-ho would like to get rained on with her again. Su-ho reminds her that he likes the word “yes,” so of course his answer is yes.

Bo-nui stops and takes out a small box, revealing a pair of rings. Su-ho looks stunned as she asks, “Will you marry me? I thought about it, and I realized that it has to be you. I’m saying it must be you.” Awww, that’s what he said to her when he realized his feelings.

Su-ho smiles, then shouts an exuberant, “YES!” He jumps around the park, yelling to anyone that can hear, “I’m getting married!!” They put their rings on, and seal it with a kiss.

COMMENTS

Cute ending for a cute story. I sort of like that Bo-nui and Su-ho didn’t have some dramatic overwrought reunion — they just saw each other, and knew it was time. I’m not unhappy about it, because it means that Bo-nui was able to decide to trust him and not give in to her fears, which makes me happier than if she’d found out that the hacker was the raccoon after all. I’ll give it to the show, it did throw all the tropes at us, but usually gave them an interesting twist to freshen them up. I could have done without the tropes in the first place, but at least they weren’t stale and boring.

I’m so torn, because while Su-ho is definitely one of my favorite rom-com heroes to date, I’ve been struggling to root for his relationship with Bo-nui. I never felt like she deserved him or appreciated how much he did for her, how truly devoted he was to her. I do think she loved him in her own way, but she never proved it to him — she just ran whenever things got tough, and never kept her promises to believe in him more than she believed in her superstitions. Then she did something unforgivable, and left him lying in the street after being hit by a car saving her life… just left him there to die. After seeing that, I was pretty much done with her.

But I adore Su-ho as a character, and so I found it in myself to at least wish for his happiness. And if he’s happy with a woman like Bo-nui, well, so be it. I just have a difficult time figuring out why he loved her… most of the time, viewers can at least tell why a character likes another character, even if we disagree with their choice. But Bo-nui spent the majority of the drama pushing Su-ho away, dismissing his feelings, choosing her talismans over him. Once she told him he was a nice person, and she was occasionally supportive, but the negative things she did overwhelmed that one gesture by a mile, and that’s before she left him possibly dying in the road. At that point, I didn’t care about Bo-nui’s feelings anymore, and even after that, when he gave her that note telling her everything she was to him, she still left. (And none of this reflects at all on Hwang Jung-eum’s performance — I still think she’s a delightful actress, she was just a victim of bad characterization in this case).

Speaking of characters, I do have to say, I think Lee Soo-hyuk and Lee Chung-ah were criminally underutilized. They had interesting characters, who pretty much failed to do anything to either threaten the main couple, or facilitate their relationship, which are the two main reasons second leads exist. Again it’s a case of great actors given sadly underdeveloped characters, and the actors themselves did their best with what they were given. I honestly liked them more when they were together — not romantically, just as friends and colleagues — than I ever did with their respective crushes. I will say, it was fun watching Lee Soo-hyuk (who I’m used to seeing in menacing, darker roles) be all wide-eyed and innocent for once.

Lucky Romance somehow still managed to be a fun watch and as an avid gamer myself, I found the backdrop of the gaming development world to be very interesting. While the whole tiger hunt worried me for Bo-nui’s safety, and the “Oh you didn’t have to sleep-sleep with him” explanation seemed like a cop-out (not to mention extremely irresponsible on the part of the fortuneteller), I did fall in love with the other characters, and of course Su-ho in particular. Ryu Joon-yeol took what could have been a bland, boring drama geeeenius and made him squishy and lovable, and watching him fall in love against his will, then just toss out his reluctance and embrace it with puppylike exuberance, has been the uncontested highlight of the show. I may not have agreed with his choice of lady, but seeing him pursue her in his dorky, awkward way was definitely the best thing about this drama.

And believe it or not, despite my complaints, I actually did enjoy Lucky Romance as a whole. In spite of its strange plot, sometimes-worrying situations, and odd execution, it kept me interested and invested for the majority of its run. It kept things light for the most part, especially with the side characters (may Dal-nim and Ryang-ha never ever stop being adorable together), and it did have a way of tugging my heartstrings and holding my attention. My lasting impression will be of a sweet show with a wonderfully vulnerable and adorable hero, and a sometimes-frustrating heroine, whose love story was one of learning to put your trust in another person. Maybe it didn’t meet my (admittedly high) expectations, but overall, it’s a show I’ll remember fondly.

I had a few problems with this show but overall I really enjoyed it. You would think in a country where they have a competitive e-sports culture it would have spread over to the dramas before now. I really hope we get more video game dramas in the future.

I do agree that the second leads were not developed enough but at the same time I'm okay with it. I don't know why but I am. As for everyone's favorite couple that we all didn't expect, they are the cutest and the worst thing to ever happen at the same time. There was so much cutesy, cringeworthy everything.

And then there is RJY who successful escaped second lead land and made it to first lead land pretty fast. I have no idea how I am going to mange without him in my life for a while. But at least we have Kim Woobin back and Lee Jongsuk comes back next week. Plus, Park Bogum will be back as will Il Jongwoo, Lee Joongi, and Kang Haneul. (sobs over missing Haneul for so long) Now if Gong Yoo could come back I would be one happy girl....

Seems like I'm not the only one who agrees that the last 2 eps were dissapointing. Ep 1-14 were really fun, with 7-12 being the best run of the entire series.

After the Noble Idiocy, I just felt an instant disengagement. I was still watching but I didn't care anymore. Watching the BTS, even without subs, was more enjoyable than powering through the last 2 eps.

The Bloopers/NG at the end was great though, I'm glad they included that. Thanks lollypip.

Despite all its flaws, I enjoyed this drama. It was my little ray of sunshine during the week. What will I do without my precious little adorkable cutiepie Je Suho in my life? Oh wait I can just replay all his scenes over and over...I need an intervention.

I can't add much to what has already been said, but overall I was pretty disappointed with the Finale. But I'm still glad I watched Lucky Romance because I enjoyed the ride for the first 14 episodes, all the way up til the car of doom. It also introduced me to RJY - who caught my attention in the very first episode. I didn't know about him before because I never watched Reply 1988, but after watching the first two episodes of LR, I started watching Reply 1988 in parallel. Now I am a forever fan.

This is also the first drama that I've ever rewatched, and the first drama that prompted me to de-lurk and start commenting on DB. I was getting withdrawals after episode 10, so rewatched episodes 1-10 all over again to watch all of Suho's funny expressions and the OTP's cute! LR gave one of the best male leads in dramaland that I've ever seen, and for that... I can't hate on this drama too much. But the last 2-3 episodes.. could've been SO MUCH MORE. Sigh. Onto the next one!

I a sure with what I am feeling right now about LR,after watching episode 15 I dropped my armor in defense of Bonui like a wounded soldier with no redemption. I was so angry with the SW for dehumanizing BN in that moment where SH needed her the most.This SW must reflect so hard how s/he ruined a very promising show. Everything was wasted, the OTP, the great actors (I'm afraid this will have some impact on HJE's wholesome career which she built and worked hard for how many years to be tainted with not so lovable character BN),the OST which I am very fond of(I think the LR's OST are better than SWP's) and the premise of the story which is very unique and original.If this story concept was given to a more experienced writer, I guess it would have turned out much better.

The director is also disappointing for not giving the viewers a more satisfying kiss.I don't believe that because HJE is married that she is restricted to do a hot kiss. The director has in control of everything, if she is not satisfied with the kiss, she can ask the actors to repeat and repeat the scene until she is satisfied with it, just like what I saw in Secret BTS where the director asked JS and HJE to repeat the kissing scenes because he is not satisfied.It is for me a downright laziness on the part of the LR director to just be satisfied with what the actors can give without improving it. She has in control of everything including kiss scenes.

Anyways, as I weigh my feelings, I enjoyed the show more than the dissatisfaction i felt at the last 2 episodes. The sweet sugary moments of our OTP was so lovely and endearing. I must admit that RJY is my favorite among all the leading men of HJE ,I never squee and giggled this much as I watched them doing the dorky laughs which I think became their signature.I will always remember them whenever i see or hear those laughter.

I hope that both RJY and HJE choose their next dramas with cautions as this can ruin their promising careers. No amount of acting abilities or popularity can save a train wreck drama.

I MUST SAY THIS MUST BE THE BEST DRAMA THIS YEAR. Though it is only halfway through the year.

It's not cliche and predictable. It's light. The romance, comedy and drama are well balanced.

I watched it since the beginning. Exactly the date when it started in Korea. And I am so proud that I became a fan. I feel like I am with each character's journey. It did not focused on the female lead only. It was really well-balanced. The ending was so perfect. Each one of them had a happy ending they deserve and lessons learned.

As a fan, I realized so many things in life. Since I also believed that I have an unfortunate fate and things don't always go the way I want it to be. But now, like Shim Bo Nui, I decided to live in the moment and just believe in myself.

FROM NOW ON, I WILL NOT ALLOW MYSELF TO DOUBT AND WORRY.

I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND THIS DRAMA. IT'S A MUST WATCH.

P.S I'm so happy that in this drama, Ryu Jun Yeol's character finally gets the girl and the perfect timing he deserves. :)

Despite the thin driving plot line Lucky Romance offers (and its an ending which leaves more to be desired), it's really weird - but I TRULY enjoyed this series as a whole.

The series does well when it focuses on the cute, and I think everyone pretty much agrees that the solid cast went miles beyond the script-writing.

Ryu Jun-yeol has once again amazed me and nailed yet another endearing character. I entered this series expecting it to be a pale comparison to Reply 1988, but I didn't know Ryu Jun-yeol had it in him to make Je Su-ho such a memorable character as well. I couldn't see any traces of Kim Jung-hwan in Je Su-ho. Kudos, Ryu Jun-yeol. You're a bonafide actor and you've just made a lifelong fan out of me.

Forgot to add - I now understand why JB & GF rate the dramas by how much they like something VS how good the material objectively is. There is a big difference between those two when it comes to Lucky Romance!

HOW I RATE IT (of 10) - 6
HOW MUCH I ENJOY IT (of 10) - 10

In my opinion, the drama version is better than the webtoon version (I admit Bonui's fashion is better in webtoon though :D). In the webtoon, Bonui tried to sleep with Tiger man because of her sick sister too, but she was just strike asking him to sleep with her right after they just met, without asking for dating first. The reason why Bonui disliked the company where Taekho (Suho's name in the webtoon) worked at is the same as Zeze factory, because she thought her fate with this company bringing a tragedy to her. But the game company format in the drama is more interesting than Sales Company format.

The webtoon version plot moves very fast and crazier than in the drama version that you would think it won't make sense if it would be applied as a live action in drama version. To be honest after following the webtoon version too, the drama version actually followed a lot of basic parts in the webtoon (except the cheapskate salesman male lead and a child shaman who looks like a japanese doll in horror movie), They're just adding a lot of new parts in the drama because 100% of the webtoon alone won't be enough to be a 16 episodes drama. That's why the writer's skill in this aspect is very very very important.

I think Lucky Romance writer tried to make this webtoon to be more make sense and possible to happen in real life, but I think the writer forgot one element. That is the Crazy element that made this webtoon interesting from the first place, what she needed was an even crazier plot than in the webtoon. The drama version developed more in the romance department rather than in the comedy department (not that I am complaining about it though because Lucky Romance gave a lot of heart fluttering moments for me and I just love this light drama)

I agree with the general consensus's likes and dislikes. But I would like some things to be cleared up.

1. Did they make an official statement about who was Soo Ho's biological father? It was vague because they hinted so strongly that it was Chicken Ahjussi even after Ahjussi said that JSH's mom just had a crush on him back in the day. I guess they were implying it was just coincidence?

2. What's the deal with the shaman? They didn't make clear rules for the world of this drama. Remember them showing how their hands touched when they fell asleep? It implied significance. I think the shaman strongly believed in it all like Bo Ni. I mean that dude could tell you all kinds of specifics from the gods based on how some rice fell. So I wish they were just more clear about him too. Either he was at least stretching his powers/beliefs or they were just like "Ehh, oh well, whatever." in the end. does JSH's mom's rejection of him and the pack-up-and go mean he failed? I almost wished we could validate the crazy superstition.

I must add:

It seems the end conclusion of this drama is that every viewer has fallen for Ryu Jun Yeol. WOW. He is a special talent and I think his career is going to explode. He's already receiving all of this well-deserved attention, but I am certain he is going to soar! He also brought me back to a place I haven't visited since I was a young gal in the early 90s and had a big crush on JTT from Home Improvement. Though I'm a kdrama addict, I wasn't much of a celebrity crusher in my adult life...until now. Here I am swooning like a kid again. Thank you Lucky Romance, for that!

Thanks so much for this awesome review closure! I loved this drama simply because Ryu was in it!! Hahaha. It was a sweet and simple drama. When is Ryu's next project? I think I will do a re-run on Reply 1988 for the meantime! Thanks again for the excellent reviews!

After watching 16 episodes of this k-drama I can safely conclude that Je Su-ho being 31 years old is more unbelievable than having to sleep with a man born in the year of a tiger to save your comatose sister.

(Also I conclude that my Second Lead Syndrome is still raging on, but that Ryu Joon-yeol has completely taken over my heart. In short: I am pretty confused, but, like, happy.)

Ugh, I have never disliked a drama heroine more. I am so glad, for hero's sake, that they finally had a happy ending.

Seems to me like the biggest problem with the ending (aside from the fact that nothing happened and yet she randomly decided to come back after one year and not worry about her luck anymore) was the show was afraid to commit about whether the fortune teller was a fraud or not. It's like they were afraid of offending anyone so they left things open-ended.

I loved the cutesy-romance of the drama but the plot-holes really put a damper on the whole thing.

The current drama slump I'm facing made me dig up the older romcoms on my to-watch list, and I decided to watch this. I marathoned the whole drama within 2 nights, and my humble conclusion is: Su Ho is the most loveable geeenius in dramaland. And RJY once again managed to convince me that you don't have to be conventionally good looking to be the most charismatic leading man ever.
