[Theme of the Month] Write an alternate ending to a drama whose ending sucked

It’s November (oh my god), which means it’s time to roll out a shiny new Theme of the Month. Goodbye, escapist dramas in alternate realities, hello alternate endings.

We’ve all seen a drama or two (…hundred) with endings that left us feeling deflated, or disappointed, or in some cases, frothing at the mouth in outrage. We’ve already made a list of some of our most disliked endings—although I’m noting that that post was back in October 2015 and a few new contenders have come and gone in the interim, threatening some of those entries’ places on the list.

Well, time to do something with that bitter disappointment and make an ending that sucked a little less sucky.

Rewrite the ending of a drama with a disappointing ending.

Maybe it was an awesome drama that was so exciting that it was impossible to make an ending live up to its promise, so the finale felt like a letdown. Maybe the show fizzled out with a bland ending, turning the entire drama into a forgettable affair. Or maybe it was just a real stinker of a conclusion, with WTF plot twists or nonsense logic or lazy resolutions—or worse yet, non-resolutions. Or maybe by some unholy magic, it was all of those things.

Now’s your chance to make it all right again and give us a chance to wash our brains of the original endings with what could have, and probably should have, been.

 
To submit:

  • Email your submissions to [email protected] If you have a registered Dramabeans account, include your handle so we can link to it.
  • Include at least 1 image, though more is preferred.
  • Suggested length: Between 500 and 1,000 words.
  • Deadline: We will post these on a rolling basis, so we’re taking submissions now. We will cut off accepting submissions on November 25. If you miss this month, join us for a new theme next month!

I expected crap from Hwarang but was greeted with something emotional. Hated how it lost it purpose and just went downhill with its story and characters.

All the way from ep 3 to the ending would be quite a lot for somebody to re-write. Good luck!

When I finally caught up with Hwarang (by crawling out of the BTS blackhole that Taehyung as Hansung AKA the cutest puppy sucked me in for long enough), I literally just WTFed my way through it. Such a waste of a grand premise. Such a waste of talent. Such a waste of potential. I was especially annoyed for Seo Yeji who had to prove herself double after getting the Hwarang stigma, Taehyung (because when is this kid going to have the time to make another drama???), Do Jihan, and the actor playing Yeo Wool. Why did the writer think that the way to write an intricate plot was to toss 274849272 dangling plot threads/backstories and develop none of them???

I'd actually love to write a Hwarang rip-off that actually, you know, makes sense. Yeah, we definitely can't rewrite just the ending for this one.

Firstly, i like the theme of this month. Finally, time is on our side to write the ending we really hoped for all this time. All the years agony and pain has come to an end. It is time for our Second leads to shine (for most dramas)

Goblin dies and is resurrected by the supreme deity to live out the rest of a normal mortal life. Because in the original ending, what really changed for him? Nothing. :-(

Second leads: Goblin, the sequel. But they'd come back as tea house and chicken shop chaebols, not actors.

Haha! You know me! I read the Heirs one and went "hey, hold it one second!" Young-do has never been deserving of Eun-sang and never will. I did wrote a whole fan fiction of how life went on after the drama ended though. Everyone had a happy ending. Young-do found a new girl, Rachel and Hyo-shin hooked up, Won and Da-kyung lived happily ever after. It was wonderful!

No no no, it should be 'Young Do and Rachel finally live up to why they were flirting so much when they thought they were about to be stepbrother and stepsister' and now that their parents are not getting marrie, she is free and over a shit fiance, and he has a broken heart to heal he finally notices the girl who is his perfect match in temper and intelligence and they become the perfect sexy power couple with matching scowl and sneer and very hot kissing.

The LJS one is High Kick 3, which admittedly has quite an unsatisfying ending. But the one I talked about is High Kick 2 with Hwang Jung-eum and Yoon Shi-yoon. The one that has THE infamous tragic ending for a sitcom.

I'm Park Hoon - Oh Soo Hyun shipper. In my alternative ending Hoon realize that what he feels toward jaehee isn't love, it's guilty because he couldn't save her before. Then he acknowledges his interest to Soohyun. There's no such thing like matching heartbeats!
Though the OTP isn't the only reason DS become my only disliked Lee Jongsuk's drama. Like you said better to re-write the whole things.

I felt really betrayed by the ending because it's a webtoon I really, really love and it's my Oppa but some people who didn't read the webtoon actually liked the ending so if you haven't read it, maybe it'll be okay with you!

Yeap, it ended. I'm not sure if we're allowed to post links here, but if you search for Crabbielife's wordpress, you'll see that she has done summaries of much of chapter 4.

I suddenly started searching for news about the movie but haven't been able to find anything new. I've only seen pictures of the actors and most of them look spot on.

yup, it's ended and the happy one. jung cried (he looks so saddd) and Seol took him back. and that sweet scene where little seol and little jung felt asleep in hospital bench holding hand together.
i am so waiting for the movie cause the drama doesn't live up to the webtoon standard both in character interpretation and story line (and i mean not just the ending). i saw the new seol pic and i can't believe i just saw a real life seol. oh yeon seo sooo much resemble webtoon seol just like Lee jong suk coming out from W.

I actually love the drama better. not romantizing a lovestory between sociopath with a normal human being and trying to justified all his action. not a fan.
The drama itself trying to convey a different message.

The drama and the webtoon only share the title, names, and haft of the leading male's characteristic , nothing more. So please dont judge them like they are the same.
So if you talking about the webtoon in your comment, i'd like to point out 2 things:
1. Real Hong Seol are far from a "normal human being". Toward the end of the story, she grow even more. She's sassy, strong, sharp and very clever.
2. YooJung are not "socialpath" since human are complicated, you can not tag one simple label on human and judge. That not how people read this kind of story.

Drama or Webtoon, what you love more are up to you, but please understand there are many more who love the webtoon and have different view on that story. There are many way to "protect" your drama and not end up sounding so disrespectful to the source material.

2

in the webtoon, he's not depicted as sociopath actually. the drama just took an easy interpretation of Jung complicated way of thinking and change it into some stereotype rom-com hero. one of jung problem, he suffered from victim mentality that made his judgement about his action, justifiable. and for the most of case, it does. but somehow, it's still against what our social norm normally perceived or what considered as normal reaction. the end of webtoon explain everything. even in ha and in ho finally realised that they also at fault for their own misfortune while fail to understand the person who, at one time, was put them highly in his life before they disappointing him. so the drama is not even on the same level as the webtoon, so i doubt people can really comparing those two.

I do not like him, so I am fine with the current ending,lol

The danger with this theme is the inevitable influx of people that think "terrible ending=my ship sank." The ending for heirs was 10000x better than the rest of the series and 100000% undeserved--regardless of which jerkass chaebol brat that dumb Candy girl ended up with--it was an ending for a drama that we never actually saw. (My ideal ending was just deleting all three leads from existence, none of them deserved each other or anything.) I know that there will undoubtedly be several Reply 1988 submissions, when the only thing wrong with that ending is Deoksun and Taek not getting the full wedding treatment like their hyung-unnie couple. And Hwarang... the king not getting the girl was THE VERY LEAST of that show's problems. (And not a problem. He wasn't right for her.)

Of course there are rare times when the ending is actually terrible because the wrong couple happened--looking at you, School 2015.

Yes I agree with you. What I would like to see for the submissions to stay true to the characters and not randomly pair up characters just because they shipped differently.

1
reply

Required fields are marked *

I agree in part. I was furious with Reply 88 ending, but not with the execution. It was in fact written and carried out beautifully. The disappointment was actually quite in tune with the rest of the drama: Realastic.

But nevertheless, I still think DB staff will accept this kind of submissions too. Because after all, there are a million reasons you might prefer to rewrite a story. It doesn't have to be badly written or directed.

if they did not make that self-reflection scene of Jung hwan, i would have been suffered from serious curiousness. that very scene was so real, so painful, yet so honest, and i couldn't even think the better way to explain to myself why he did not get his love. it's not just about timing, but it's about both self hesitation and lack of willingness to create this so called fate, opportunity that form from our strong heart.

Have to agree. There are terrible shows with terrible endings, good shows with lingering questions, and shows that should have ended much sooner than they did...and then there are shows that displeased people for not being exactly what they wanted them to be, irrespective of quality. This will be a lot more fun if people focus on wtfery like What Happened in Bali imo.

Rewriting endings could also mean adding some, like an epilogue. Doesn't have to change any pairing, especially when it's already written beautifully. Like reply 1988, I need a wedding! I need closure for Jung Hwan. One lunch with Taekki was NOT enough of a closure. I need more. Maybe I should write this :)

Great theme! Unfortunately, I read that DB piece on good dramas that had horrible endings early in my kdrama-binging and steared clear of them, and the only one I would possibly change is Goblin from this past year, but I didn’t mind that ending. I thought it was very appropriate with the multiple deaths and reincarnations theme that show was ultimately about.

So me. I rely on DB so much that I don't watch if it has a horrible ending. I just read the recaps. Hahaha!

I remember being so unsatisfied that I wrote an alternative ending for School 2015. Also one with Healer because that drama's ending was kind of all over the place. It was almost consistently perfect and I loved it for it, but the last episode came out to be anti-climatic and unoriginal. Anyways, this theme should be fun to read.

I don't know how I feel about this one, I mean, I cried for Jung-hwan for not getting the girl but at the same time I was really happy for Taek!

Same here. I'd love to read an ending that actually mentioned what happened to Jung-hwan, though. Where he moved on and met someone new and they go on double dates with Doksun and Taek every month, or he stayed single and found total fulfillment in being a pilot or *something.*

I always imagine him becoming the hero of a new drama, in his thirties, taciturn and remote, nursing a broken heart from his youth, and suddenly being taken over by a whirlwind of new love. 😎

Hehe, I understand. But my fangirl heart only cared for JH's happiness. So I really need an ending where he gets the girl. 😀And maybe, it can be so that Taek finds someone else and lives happily too 😀

I have submitted my writing, but I'm sorry, it's still taekki. I just need Jung hwang to have some closure, so I wrote an epilogue. But I don't know if it suited this theme though, since it's not actually changing anything. Ah well... let's just wait and see

This sounds fun! You cracked me up with that photo since the first thing that came to mind is that blasted drama wahahaha! Can somebody please write an acceptable ending at least, or better yet the best ending for Scarlet Heart?!?! That is the epitome of an epic downward spiral of a drama to the abyss of wtfery, seriously...I was waiting for something that didn’t come and it just left me hanging until now. I don’t think I’ve gotten over it really. I need some form of closure, lol! So this is one brilliant idea, Javabeans! Thanks! It might help unbreak a heart that’s been crushed too many times by sloppy drama endings.

In the book, she died but in the Chinese drama, she went back to her time and met the modern incarnation of the 4th Prince, and I guessed they got together in the drama sequel.

1. Reply 1994 - Na Jeong goes to Trash after she receives his text and says goodbye to him and the two finally have their closure. She goes to Chilbongie and asks him not to go to America and that she loves him. He, of course, needs to go since he has a contract and everything. She promises him that she'll wait for him. They have a long distance and got married once he gets back.

2. Hwarang - Sam Maek Jong wakes up in the 21st century and realized that everything that has happened was just a dream. Lying in his arms is his fiancee, Aro, whom he inadvertently woken up by his sudden movement. She asks him what's wrong and if he's okay and he proceeds to tell her about his nightmare. She rolls her eyes at him and gives him an amused grin and tells him "Idiot! Like I would choose someone else when I have you." They then go back to sleep putting the nightmare behind them.

3. Reply 1988 - Junghwan gets to the concert hall before Taek. He confesses his feelings for Deok Sun for real this time and she accepts. They live happiky ever after.

Ohh fun!
1. CITT: I'd erase episode 15 in it's entirety, JungSeol go their separate ways because of Seol's decision instead of Jung's, Jung works on himself, Baek siblings leave but BaekSeol's friendship is not ruined because Inha didn't go psycho and pushed Seol in front of a car or whatever it is that happened in episode 15. JungSeol still don't reunite in the end but everyone is shown living their lives.

2. Moon Lovers: Hae Soo leaves because she's tired of being treated like crap and palace life doesn't suit her and not because she was pregnant (bc god forbid a woman acts for her own well-being), she dies and sees herself in the museum in the future and that's the reason she cries, like in the Chinese version. She and Wang So still don't meet in the present. Honestly though this drama needs to be rewritten from episode one.

3. The King in Love: A hot RinSan make out session and something more thrilling as the final conflict with Song In.

4. I Need Romance: the heroine doesn't go back to her cheating ex, I don't really mind her not getting together with Choi Jin Hyuk's character but it would've been a nice bonus. The whole "leave your job to become a trophy chaebol wife" thing doesn't happen.

5. The Woman Who Married Three Times: She actually goes back to her first husband aka the man she loves, and gets to keep her baby. Ha Suk Jin's character and his lover finally give his parents the grandchild they wanted.

I knew it. I predicted so that Moon Lovers will make it among the top list and then I scrolled down the page and there...plastered the scarred yet beautiful face of my Wang So.

Wait? I like the ending of Moon Lovers minus the last seconds where So reminisced over his good old time with Hae Soo. I am so glad she died and out of his. She has done enough damage in Goryeo and to So. If I could change the ending.... I want Haesoo to be dead for good. I mean really dead.
