Angel’s Last Mission: Love: Episodes 25-26

It’s another bittersweet episode, with our couple spending as much time together as possible before their cruel fate comes a’knocking. While they want to believe that their fate is theirs to change, everyone around them is urging them to accept that it’s not — that they’re not the only exception. And it’s getting harder not to listen.

 
EPISODES 25-26 RECAP

Yeon-seo returns home, after her meeting with Kang-woo, and immediately brings Dan into a hug. He asks what’s wrong, and she lies that she just missed him a lot. And on the table, the report that he’d written burns away until it’s completely gone.

Back at the bar, Kang-woo remembers the end of his conversation with Yeon-seo. At first, she thought that he was lying to keep her and Dan apart. So Kang-woo slammed his own angel handkerchief on the table. “Do you get it now?” he’d asked. “Why I know so much about Kim Dan?”

Kang-woo is still thinking about how upset Yeon-seo looked when he leaves. Hoo appears beside him, asking what he plans to do. All Kang-woo knows is that he never would’ve gone to the church years ago if he’d known Seol-hee would die there. So he plans to protect Yeon-seo, just as Hoo plans to protect Dan.

Meanwhile, at Nina’s house, Nina silently heads toward the door, suitcase in hand. Director Choi blurts out that she did everything for her, so she can’t abandon them now. But Nina looks at her parents and cries that if they truly cared about her, they never would’ve stooped so low. She says that it was all about greed and, as she expected, Mom can’t deny it. She turns and walks out on them, leaving Dad ashamed and Mom in tears.

She runs into Luna outside, and begs her to assure her she had nothing to do with hurting Yeon-seo. However, Luna points out that Nina had to feel some kind of relief when Yeon-seo lost her eyesight. “Look into your heart,” Luna continues. “You’re only in the position you’re in now because of what happened to Yeon-seo. All we did was give you what you desired.” Luna goes inside, while Nina falls to her knees and sobs.

Dan is sitting at his desk, trying to search his bible for answers, when Yeon-seo knocks on his door. She walks in with her pillow, saying she can’t sleep, and tells him to carry on with what he was doing.

He can’t focus, though, since she’s just lying on his bed staring at him. (Boy, I see you blushin’!) She finally asks him to lie down with her, wanting to touch him. And as she places a hand over his beating heart, Kang-woo’s warning echoes in her head.

She pulls him in for a hug, and smiling, he thanks her for never being afraid to show him her weak side. He pats her shoulder and assures her that everything will work out — tomorrow’s board meeting, the “Giselle” show.

“And you and me,” he finishes. Instead of answering, she just holds him tighter.

Everything will be all right

 

The next day, at Fantasia’s board meeting, Yeon-seo makes the announcement that Director Choi, Uncle Kim, and Luna are all being dismissed from their positions. Choi walks in just then, asking Yeon-seo to allow her to say her goodbyes herself. Yeon-seo steps aside, letting Choi get into her tearful speech.

However, everyone’s phones start beeping with breaking news — Uncle Kim went to the police and confessed to being responsible for meddling in Yeon-seo’s eye surgery and for murdering Driver Jo. As the board members erupt into whispers, Choi panics and hurries out of the room.

This news worries the corps de ballet, but Yeon-seo and Kang-woo ask that they stay patient with them until everything dies down. They’re sure that this isn’t enough to take Fantasia down. For now, Kang-woo gives everyone the day off.

Before Yeon-seo can head out with Dan, Luna steps in and asks if she can talk to Yeon-seo alone. The two go onto the stage in the main theater, where Luna drops to her knees and starts rambling her (very fake) apology.

When Luna asks that Yeon-seo forgive her and her family, Yeon-seo coolly says, “Ah, so that’s what you want.” However, Yeon-seo has no intention of being lenient with her family; she wants them to be punished for their crimes.

Yeon-seo knows that Luna did what she did for Nina’s sake. “But, Unni,” she says. “I’m like your sister too. I’m your family.” To that, Luna says that family are just people grouped together by coincidence. Luna then smiles and says that it’ll be fun — exciting, even — now that Yeon-seo knows everything. She warns her to watch herself before stalking off.

In the practice room, Kang-woo is sulking over a conversation he just had with Dan in the hall. Dan had told him that he wouldn’t let Yeon-seo die but that he wouldn’t give up on becoming human either. He expressed that he’s sure God brought him to Yeon-seo, and to Kang-woo, for a reason.

The corps de ballet then walk in, breaking Kang-woo’s train of thought. And he’s delightfully surprised to hear that they want to practice despite all the media chaos.

Yeon-seo still takes her day off, spending it with Dan. She’s a little upset over Luna, but she tells Dan that the only family she needs is him and Chief Jung. Getting an idea, she then drags him over to a shopping center to use the photo booth.

The two have a good time finding silly headbands and posing for the camera. The more Yeon-seo looks at Dan, however, the more Kang-woo’s warning scares her. Her face crumples in tears and she begs in a small voice, “Don’t disappear.”

Dan is surprised that she knew, and he says that she should’ve told him sooner instead of worrying alone. He calms her down by revealing that he’s been searching and praying for a way to become human. He hugs her and gently says that he won’t leave her, and she silently clings to him.

I will become human

 

Afterwards, Dan marches over to Fantasia and confronts Kang-woo, chiding him for telling Yeon-seo and making her cry. He warns Kang-woo not to tell her about the sacrificial love condition. Kang-woo yells that Dan will suffer just as he suffered, but Dan says that he wouldn’t have returned to Yeon-seo’s side if he were afraid of that.

Later, Yeon-seo is doing her own research on angel-to-human transformations. Coming up with nothing, she resorts to calling Kang-woo and asking how he did it. With Seol-hee in mind, Kang-woo firmly says, “These last fifteen years as a human, I’ve been miserable. Every single moment.” It would be the same for Dan, he continues, and he’s sure she doesn’t want Dan to experience that kind of hell.

Dan writes another report asking to become human, and he’s startled when it suddenly burns away, the ashes disappearing into the night sky. Assuming that God is refusing to answer him, he stays up all night writing the same report. And every single one burns away. He wakes up the next day to a phone call from Yeon-seo — she wants to go out on a real date.

So the two get all dressed up, pack up a picnic, and head out to the park, the one place that Yeon-seo believes holds the most history for them. They go on to have a cute date, filled with bike riding and kissing by the water.

Watch the video

Let’s start our date!

 

Elsewhere, Nina meets with Kang-woo to turn in her resignation. She knows that he only talked big of her (calling her his “dream Giselle”) to threaten her mom and sister. She slaps him for using her, and he actually looks pretty guilty. Even so, she’s done wasting her time with him.

Back at the park, Yeon-seo brings up her angel research and suggests Dan try to revive himself by jumping off a building or drowning in the ocean. (LOL, his face.) When he dismisses these ideas, she figures there is one way they can always be together. She drags him over to the church and pulls out two rings.

“Let’s get married, Kim Dan,” she says, taking him aback. Why not, she asks, since they love each other? He turns away, unable to accept when they don’t even know what will happen to him. But she tells him not to talk like that; he promised he’d stay by her side. He also said that God brought them together, so he should take responsibility.

They continue to fight over this, when Dan notices a young boy running into the street — in the path of a speeding car. Dan runs over and grabs the boy just in time, though they take a nasty fall. Yeon-seo hurries to his side, and he quietly tells her to get him away from the gathering crowd before they see his wounds disappear.

Strangely, his head injury is too much for him and he passes out. He wakes up in the hospital, where Yeon-seo informs him that the cut on his arm never healed. As they reinspect the cut at home, they both wonder if he somehow became human.

It all seems so sudden and too easy, but Dan is hoping that this means God finally accepted his reports. They decide to test this out by waiting for the rain and seeing if his wings still pop out. However, the next few days are, of course, nothing but sunny. And all the while, Yeon-seo is still trying to convince Dan to marry her, heh.

One night, while sitting in the courtyard, Yeon-seo tells Dan not to feel sorry towards her if they found out he’s still an angel. There’s a clap of thunder, and they look up at the sky and then at each other. He grasps her hand before standing and holding his arms up.

As they wait, they silently pray to themselves that God grant them this one wish. They wait and wait, but… nothing happens. She runs up to him and hugs him, crying that he must really be human. “Thank you!” she says happily. “For the first time, You answered my prayer!”

She looks at Dan, asking if this means he can really stay with her, and he’s so out of it that all he can do is kiss her. They kiss over and over in the rain, eventually bringing it into the bedroom. Well, rawr.

Dan narrates that something incredible happened to him while Yeon-seo narrates that she finally got her miracle. They both finish with, “Love.” As they continue to kiss (seriously, rawr), we see Dan’s handkerchief on the table, the feather still blue.

That morning, Dan smiles to wake up next to Yeon-seo. He reaches over to touch her face, but to his horror, his hand goes right through her, as if he’s a ghost. He rushes over to the church to ask Hoo what’s going on, and in turn, Hoo asks if he checked his handkerchief.

Hoo tells him that the feather burns black if the owner has disappeared or become human. Therefore, God keeping Dan’s feather blue must be His final answer to Dan’s prayers. The frustrated Hoo asks why Dan had to take it this far, and Dan innocently answers that it was his heart that brought him here. Either way, Dan asks, why would God taunt him by allowing him to bleed or to walk in the rain without his wings?

To that, Hoo sadly explains that it’s a warning — a warning that his time with his human body is almost up. When Dan leaves, he thinks of how happy he and Yeon-seo were last night, and he bursts into tears. He later calls Yeon-seo to say that he can’t take her to rehearsal, which she says she understands. But, on second thought, he stops by a flower shop to get Yeon-seo her favorite yellow flowers. He tells the shop owner that he may not be able to see the flowers bloom with his girlfriend next spring.

At Fantasia, Luna secretly meets with a member of the lighting team. And in the dressing room, Yeon-seo catches Nina emptying her locker. She reminds Nina that she didn’t know of her mom and sister’s activities and that thinking bad thoughts (such as wishing Yeon-seo were dead) isn’t a crime.

Besides, Yeon-seo says, she believes that Nina’s “Giselle” audition was great, and she wants to work with a great dancer. “So don’t run away,” she concludes. “Come see my face and suffer. Consider that as your punishment.” She leaves for rehearsal, while Nina stays behind and cries.

As Yeon-seo heads for the stage, Dan arrives and surprises her with the flowers. He reveals that he’d seen her that day she danced alone in the hall, and he wanted to give her flowers then too. The gesture makes her bring up marriage again, but he doesn’t want to hear it.

Still, Yeon-seo states that she’s going to make marriage happen for them. She hands him back the flowers, saying she’ll use them for the bouquet. He follows her into the theater and takes a seat. On stage, she looks at him and mutters that he’s foolish, flashing back to that morning.

As it turns out, she’d woken up first, and when she tried to touch his hand, she went right through him. We then see that she nearly cried after hanging up on Dan earlier, but she held it in. “Let’s see who wins,” she angrily challenged God. “Because I’m going to do everything I want to do with Dan.”

Now, she gives Dan a sad smile and wave before starting her routine. He watches her get into character, when he feels a sudden gust of wind. He looks back to the stage and Yeon-seo is gone (invisible?), though her spotlight is still tracking her movements.

Hoo appears, but Dan begs him to stop, knowing fully well what he’s going to say. The saddened Hoo says it anyway — Yeon-seo has to die now. Dan grabs Hoo’s arm, saying that he’ll give up and disappear so long as Yeon-seo can live.

Hoo just watches the moving spotlight and says that it was Yeon-seo’s fate to die the day of the car accident. Her fate to die may have been postponed, but it’ll have to catch up to her now.

As Hoo leaves, Dan turns back to the stage and sees Yeon-seo reappear, done with her routine and lying on the floor, playing dead. He stands there, frozen, as his eyes fill with tears.

When Yeon-seo comes out to the hall, done for the day, Dan approaches her with determination. He hands her the flowers again and tells her, “Let’s do it. Marry me, Lee Yeon-seo.”

She grins ear to ear, overwhelmed with relief, and brings him into a hug. And though he’s more sad and frustrated than anything, he hugs her back and finds it in himself to smile too.

 
COMMENTS

Wait, wait, wait. Are you seriously telling me that Yeon-seo has to die no matter what now? When did this become a thing? Where is this drama’s rule book? Is it up on the same shelf as Abyss rule book? I know Hoo said that Yeon-seo was fated to die all along, but with the way this episode was set up, this detail seems more like a punishment. As if the deity had gotten fed up with Dan and Yeon-seo rebelling. That, along with the burning of all the angel reports, feels way too harsh to me. It almost makes the deity look like the bad guy, which I’d rather not be the case. I still want to believe that there’s more we’re not seeing, but with everything that’s happened, I can’t help but feel as frustrated as our couple.

Our side characters have been dealing with a lot of frustrations too. Kang-woo and Nina have been annoying the hell out of me these past few episodes, so I was glad to see them chill out a bit, so to speak. When they’re not focused on their resentment and jealousy, I start to see the good in them again. I remember why I liked them in the first place. I like that Kang-woo genuinely enjoys his work and that he takes pride in his dancers. I like that Nina stands up for what’s right and that she feels guilty for something that wasn’t even her fault. They still have a long way to go as characters, but they’re showing some promise. I don’t know if they show promise in helping our main couple — that hope died a long time ago — but who knows. Maybe the show will surprise me.

The show, after all, never fails to surprise me with Dan and Yeon-seo. They talk through things so easily, even through the secrets and misunderstandings that I would assume would set off an argument. They have an immense amount of trust in each other now, and they understand how the other works. They know that they’re too scared to voice the truth. They know that their end is near. As their fear builds, they seem more and more like children to me. Like the kids they once were back on the island. They can see that history is repeating itself and that they have no control over it. Their hugs are longer, their smiles are weaker… it’s heartbreaking. And that one scene in the rain made it all worse. Seeing them that happy, when I knew it was too good to be true — that was brutal.

Dan’s got to be losing his mind right about now. At the age of twelve, he lost his life and his chance at happiness with Yeon-seo. Then, as an adult, he seemingly got his second chance, only to be told that it’s pretty much forbidden. It’s puzzling, to say the least, to keep track of how fate works in his situation. Yeon-seo was fated to die in the car accident, but could it be that Dan was also fated to save her? To fall in love with her? Or was saving Yeon-seo the first time Dan tested fate? Because if that’s the case, then maybe they could manipulate fate again. Even with this episode’s ending, I don’t think they’re going to give up. Their wedding may seem like they’re waving the white flag, but I think it’s more than that. Even if all hope is lost, they’re not gonna waste time and cry about it. They’re gonna get hitched and enjoy the rest of their time together. Then they can cry, and I’ll gladly join them.

I like how they green lit the confrontation with the evil cousin of the many whispers.

This show never fails to frustrate me. At this point they really are making god look like the big bad. My prediction is that:

Evil Cousin accidentally hurts her sister instead of her real target
Ex-Angel Kang Woo ultimately saves both of them through his own sacrifice.

Fingers crossed.

When I'm frustrated with this show, it's because it had such potential and didn't even realize what it's own strengths were. It makes me want to watch a drama that never faltered, hit all the right notes, and ended the way you would want it to. I'm sure I've seen a bunch of these, but nothing comes to mind just now.....

What a bitter-sweet episode! I swoon. I'm heartbroken. The kiss in the rain is very heartbreaking to be regardless they're ending in bed... :(

I'm proud of Yeon-seo. I know she's sad when she knew what fate has to wait to Dan (also for her). It's her who wants to spend their times together happily in the remaining times...

I am honestly SO upset with how things are playing our for our leads. In the beginning, we were told that a thunder of prayers saved Dan from getting dissipated and was, instead, given another chance to open the door so he could “go up,” thus this mission to find Yeon Seo someone to love.

It’s a fckn mission! There was a leaf leading him to her! Now, they are saying that this whole thing is a punishment all along and that Yeon Seo was supposed to die, anyway? I am furious! Who the flying fvck was giving Hoo orders to be passed on to Dan? At this point, I am convinced that he’s just as clueless as we are about the fate of Dan and Yeon Seo. The rickety foundation of the rules of this story is so unnerving, and this show being unpredictable AF doesn’t justify it.

Has anybody here seen “Star of the Universe” starring EXO’s Suho and Ji Woo? That short drama, despite some shortcomings, ticked all the right boxes in the dead-person-loves-human department of K-Dramas. In the story, Ji Woo, an insubordinate grim reaper, was given another shot at life. In the end, she doesn’t exactly become human, BUT she got the chance to spend some time with the man she loves and even start a family with him, all under a solid condition, which Angel’s Last Mission: Love, unfortunately, doesn’t have.

Ugh. I hate that I’ve invested so much of myself in this drama. My fault.

That said, I do remain hopeful for a happy ending, or even a bittersweet ending! Just not a sad ending that’s ridiculous as the show is now.

In other news, wow. Myungsoo looked really hungry in that kissing scene (and bed scene? WHAT???). Like, DAMN, bruh! I’d be rich by now had I received a dollar for every profanity that escaped my mouth while watching this episode. I totally did not expect so much sweetness and—as @sailorjumun put it—“rawr” in one episode, but here we are now.

So, the title of this drama is "Angel's Last Mission: Love," right? Not "Angel's Last Mission: Love, Suffer and Die."

Just hoping the writer remembers that.

I've already said how frustrated I am with the sudden no-way-to-change-anyone's-fate plots. For a drama that relies on an archangel and a Catholic church, this is so out of context.

The only thing I'm hoping is that because YS and Dan are both willing to die for each other, the ultimate love, a miracle will save them both.

LOL. Let's change the title to "Angel's Last Mission: Love and Happy Ever After" 😆

Mutual self-sacrifice may indeed be the key to saving both Dan and Yeon Seo. Or indeed any all out sacrifice that is meant for a higher good.

That said, however, it's not consistent with the show's belief in heaven and angels, that earthly death should be so big a tragedy. Living together on earth should not be the end-all and be-all in this drama-verse. Of course the logic of a happy afterlife in heaven has been flawed already in the beginning, since show has wrongly resurrected Dan as an angel with a mission on earth, when he should have been a peaceful spirit in heaven.

Still the mission being 'love' could mean that any truly loving action could fulfill the mission and save our Dan (if not also Yeon Seo).

Did you ever read Bitches over Dramas’ essay on the ending of Goblin, the meaning of “Afterlife is a u-turn”, and the sequence that starts with “heaven is primarily a STATE OF BEING, rather than a defined hole-in-the-sky” and goes to “Heaven can also be established here on THIS very earth, because God Himself CREATED this world, and He called it “very good.””...? That perspective could lead to an interesting and satisfactory ending!

Hi @hebang Although I did not read Bitches' on that opinion of heaven on earth, I do subscribe to it as well.

Yes, if drama had already leaned into that way of thinking, I'd totally embrace that as a great resolution. IE on earth or off it, they are 'in heaven'.

I'd love this point of view, so as to interpret that Dan's coming back as an angel on earth to be reunited with YS, was a heavenly reward for these who are 'children' with good hearts.

However the attitude of Dan and Hu that he was to get to heaven after completing a mission (as if it required something on his part to gain admittance), and that of KW on being on earth, separated from the dead loved one as a punishment, indicates that to them, earth is not part of where heaven is.

Since theological consistency is Not a strong point of this writer, one can still hope?

@hebang Since theology is not consistent, we can certainly hope that writer will twist ending to any which way that suits a happy ever after, in either or both, earthly or after life! 🤩

Sidenote: I've been a little worried about 'Bitches': it's not like her to have gone AWOL for over a week without a post anywhere on her blog. Last post I can find is 21 June.

@growingbeautifully. I had the same worry about ‘Bitches’. I tell myself that although it’s a long holiday weekend, it might be a busy time for her. I wish we had a means to ping her.

This show continues to hit all the right notes for me. I live for their conversations, how they assure each other though not even sure themselves. The sweet moments tinged with the sadness. I can feel their desperation as they cling to each other. Shin Hae Sun and L and really selling it.

When Dan realized that Yeon Seo had to die, and in an instant he was willing to give up everything and just disappear like how he was supposed to - his expression breaks my heart.

All the scenes were well executed and beautifully done, especially the one where Dan stood in the rain. I almost hoped his wings would pop out. And Yeon Seo pestering Dan to marry her every moment she gets - I love how unabashedly persistent the girl is! "We're getting married, kthksbye!"

Thanks @sailorjumun
Heh! a thought that recurred to me more than a couple of times: Well, now we see why God in His wisdom does not have angels continually running around as if they are human in our world. They may come, get their job done and leave, and most of the time they continue working but we don't see them. What a hassle and a mess (to say the least) 🙄 it has become for Kim Dan, Sunbae Hu and (not to mention) KW, just because they appeared human and hung around too long with real humans.

Uncle Kim went to the police and confessed to being responsible for meddling in Yeon-seo’s eye surgery and for murdering Driver Jo.

I can't abide this erroneous idea of 'love and protection', which is just gross over-indulgence that prevents a child's growth. I had to ask myself if I'd take the fall for my kid who committed a crime ... and no, I wouldn't. Let them suffer the consequences. The parent(s) too should suffer the consequences, not by taking over the punishment, but by taking responsibility for failing in better parenting.

While it's a relief that the baddie family has been more or less thwarted, I hope for a better ending for them and Yeon Seo. It was momentarily poignant when YS pointed out to RN, that she was family too.

Baddie family's reason for their crimes still remains unconvincing. Ni Na has suddenly wisened up to the fact that she has been used. Her need to be the prima ballerina is supposed to be the reason for all the evil, but it was just an excuse to justify greed.

Although Ni Na can be seen to be returning to being the fair and good creature she was, at the same time I find that she has suddenly become inconsistently fiercer than her earlier timid character ever suggested. I'm finding it hard to reconcile the Ni Na who dares to fly in the face of her family and walk out of the house with the Ni Na who cried childishly by herself.

Dan had told him that he wouldn’t let Yeon-seo die but that he wouldn’t give up on becoming human either. He expressed that he’s sure God brought him to Yeon-seo, and to Kang-woo, for a reason.

Although I am for the idea of God having a plan that we don't understand yet, and that people are 'brought together' also with a plan in god's mind, I very wary of this show and how it will twist and re-interpret this.

I already see how 'blame' is going to be conveniently heaped upon the deity. It's going to be god's fault for letting people die, or be saved, or to have met, etc... while at the same time show is tossing in destiny and fate, as if god didn't have any control of those things. The inconsistency and lack of a 'rule book' to follow, leaves pretty much any ending as a possibility, with any trumped up justification to accompany it that suits.

I know what I'd like to see - that god really had a proper and higher plan, and a fairer way of meting out both 'reward' and 'punishment' than show has led us to...

I didn’t have any hopes but this family is just too damn despicable and suffocating. All of them. The father didn’t have a backbone to begin with, and owning the crimes his family is very messed up and just lame writing alright.

And I agree with your thoughts on Ni Na - I’ve got nothing to add more since I couldn’t care less about anything else in this drama but Yeon Seo 😜

That seems to be the recurring theme here. This argument reminds me so much of Goblin’s theme on God, so meh, brain once again shuts off, not willing to dissect this further 🙃

I'd like a reveal that God had a higher plan the whole time, but I don't know if that's what the writer is going for. It seemed like that at first but not anymore. Don't know what to expect after everything that's been told to Dan and Yeonseo.

@junglia That's exactly the feeling I have ... hope with lots of doubt. If there was consistency in just going with fate/destiny, or consistently going with a mean god, we'd know what to prepare ourselves for. However, we seem to have a deity who is something like the Greek gods who were capricious and generally indifferent, letting humans go around like chess pieces with some autonomy and then taking away that autonomy whenever deity felt like it. Life was a game played among the gods, and the chess pieces did not really matter.

I like your comparison to Greek mythology. Maybe the writer wouldve had more freedom if she did something similar to that. Or maybe even something similar to Arang and the Magistrate.

@junglia,
ARANG AND THE MAGISTRATE did an excellent job of building a dramaverse ruled by deities who were consistent, and populated with supernatural entities who had ground rules to play by (as did the mortals) -- and consequences to face when they failed to do so. As a result, I have high expectations for that kind of care and forethought on the part of writers, even when the supernatural is not involved.

@growingbeautifully, I agree -- it seems that Heaven is actually Mt. Olympus, with its rafts of jealous, petty deities. Or maybe it's very Old Testament, with Yahweh in a perpetual snit and ready to smite everyone over golden calves.

Yeon-seo angrily challenging the Deity was my favorite this episode. Shin Hye-sun's acting was on point in that scene: she was frustrated, sad, and angry all at once. Yeon-seo's proposal was cute and funny too. And her suggestions on how Dan can become human was just straight from YA books (as if this show isn't YA enough).

At this point, I am watching this show with my brain turned off and I am just admiring the art that is Shin Hye-sun, ballet, and L's dimples.

Shin Hye Sun really deserves a daesang for hard carrying this drama. I really don’t want to say it’s a waste of her talent cuz omg Yeon Seo is such a great character. I loved her from Day 1 and her character growth is worth watching for. Yeon Seo is a great portfolio on her resume. Just please, Hye Sun, don’t ever ever work with this writer again. And this writer is forever blacklisted to me.

Also, Hye Sun’s stylist needs to get a pat on the back and big recognition - Yeon Seo looks so gorgeous and on point every time she graces my screen!

Tbh it’s so cheesy, but my heart legit cracked when Yeon Seo pulled out the box of rings in it and proposed to Dan. I can’t help it; here is Yeon Seo working so hard not to waste any moment with Dan 😢 The things she wanted to do with Dan, she’d want to do them all now. She lives in the moment.

Yeon-seo had character growth but the characters in this show didn't have any. HAHA. Also, the writer had growth too from Lucky Romance's female lead to ALML's female lead. Everything about Yeon-seo is 11/10 except her family members.

I was also really happy when Yeon-seo decided to propose and do whatever she wants to do with Dan. Girly doesn't waste the remaining time she has with Dan.

Did you ever see the tv show House? In one episode, the patient of the week was a guy trying to live his life without regrets. YS’s actions remind me of that character; she wants to spend the limited time she has with Dan without any regrets.

Three cheers indeed for Shin Hye-sun's stylist. Shin-hye-sun is in fact a very beautiful woman, but it seems like in every other drama she has been dressed to hide this fact. I will admit to there having been one brief exception to this fact: When she wore a wedding dress in FIVE KIDS. So it has been wonderful to watch her in a show where she is dressed in a fashion that shows her beauty.

AS for her performance- she will certainly get a best actress, but you actually echo my thought that she deserves a Daesang.

I also agree that the proposal was wonderful.

Finally caught up with the episodes, well I haven’t seen 27-28 yet but 😑 seems like nothing much have progressed.

Once again Yeon Seo is the only reason I haven’t completely dropped this yet. She’s awesome through and through. I really loved that part where she and Kang Woo (a few episodes ago) talked about living and death. She’s realistic in that she knows nothing lasts forever, and if Dan isn’t going to be with her for a long long time, she’ll do all means to spend the remaining time with Dan all worth it. 👏 Yeon Seo did I mention I love you?

She’s hurting so much in this episode but she’s not brooding about the incoming doomed reality. That was a great reveal in then end when we were shown that Yeon Seo knew that Dan didn’t become human after all. She was scared as hell but she continued to be resilient for the both of them. Life goes on, she looks after her plants happily, seeing and being with Dan makes me so elated, she practices hard; she’s ready to face this head on. I love Yeon Seo so much.

Also darn these OST continue to amaze me!! I’m glad Pray is officially released and seems like Stay has an English version.

Kang Woo has once again shown his true intentions. His greed getting the best of him again. That scene between Kang Woo and Dan was very telling. He told Dan right to his face that he and Yeon Seo have to have a sad tragic ending. If God is ever fair, they would need to have the same ending as his - lover is dead and angel is living an immortal human life. Their misery is his satisfaction.

🤦‍♀️

And for that I wish nothing but endless misery for Kang Woo. There really is no redeeming for his character to me.

Thank you for your recap, SailorJumun.

I started out watching ANGEL'S LAST MISSION expecting there to be some kind of ground rules in this dramaverse. Silly me. It has become quite frustrating to watch the proceedings, but I'm hanging on to see exactly what the deal is with Dan, Kang-woo, and Hoo. And to see the baddies get their just deserts.

As an atheist, I'm not quite sure why people are angry with the thought that God could be the bad guy or why people are confused with regards to the rule book for this drama.

I'm not even sure ANYBODY knows what's going on and if there are even any rules. Hoo and KangWoo don't feel like they're the authorities on what happens to rebelling angels - Hoo' s probably just spouting what he's seen himself and what he's heard from other angels and KangWoo's only got one reference: himself. Between the two of them, they're only advising based on their own experiences and not what the actual rules are.

But... do we need rules? Life doesn't really have any definite rules anyway. Fate and destiny is created by humans but determined by the gods. I've always felt like that guy in the sky is just some busybody looking down on humans and watching them for fun. Sometimes he might be merciful, sometimes he'll be cruel just because and sometimes he'll just throw something in the spanner to watch how it all works out. There is no reason to his methods because "God works in mysterious ways" after all.

And well, Dan and YeonSeo will just have to fight that and win somehow.

Hoo talking about Fate was just wrong. Yeon-seo was supposed to die in the car wreck? So she is just on borrowed time? How does Hoo know this? Actually, why is Hoo even saying this- God just put him in jail to prove to Hoo that Hoo does not know what he is talking about.

Or look at it this way: If it was God’s Immutable Plan that Yeon-seo die in the car wreck then how can it be God’s Immutable Plan that after that wreck Dan somehow has a Divine Mission to bring love to a living Yeon-seo? This is simply illogical. In fact it is infuriating. It also shows that the idea of Fate does not fit with a Judeo-Christian world.

We see Dan writing his report- and asking to become human. He does this over and over- because each time the report burns. Dan wants an answer but God isn’t giving him one. But, the one thing that Dan does not see is that God is showing him that he is paying attention to his request.

I am as bemused by the ‘theology’ of this writer as anyone else. I have no idea how this will wind up or even where we are heading. But I am going to point something out here: Kang-woo had failed in his mission before he ever met Seol-hee. Angel Noel had failed his mission too. But Angel Dan has not failed in his mission. He has truly succeeded in bringing love to Yeon-seo. The writer has suggested that angels are punished for failure while at the same time suggesting that God will also punish success in this case. Not since the gods of ancient Greece have we been confronted with such a mean spirited and irrational Deity. I love this show but not this aspect of the show.

Lee Dong-gun as Kang-woo is doing a professional job in a very narrow role. He is in fact a better actor than this role makes him seem. Right now I am watching LAUREL TREE TAILORS where he is the the main male character in a weekend family drama. You can definitely see more of his skill and versatility as an actor in that role.

Shin Hye-sun continues to just grab my heart with her performance. I am not a mawkish person but that scene in the photo booth when she is just looking at Dan almost had me in tears.

A few people have suggested that Shin Hye-sun may not get some parts in the future because she is so tall. That was really on display when Yeon-seo and Luna faced each other on stage in this episode: Luna is wearing high heels and Yeon-seo is in flats- and yet Yeon-seo practically towered over Luna. If Shin Hye-sun were not such a great actress I could see how this could limit the roles available to her in the future. What will happen instead is that she will be cast first- and then the male lead will then be cast who matches well with her. I remember that in FIVE KIDS she looked almost tiny next to Sung Hoon. There are many actors who are just too short but K-Dramaland has a fair number of men who would do just fine when paired with Shin Hye-sun- and most of them would positively jump at the chance.

Let's face it, the whole concept of predestination makes little sense anyway. It's not just the writer but generally. Honestly, I've mostly stayed away from the recaps because people have been getting quite quite heated about the show.

The fact is, if God has a plan it's not possible to subvert it. So there's no 'supposed to' anything. Everything that happens is supposed to happen and will happen. If Yeonsoo was "supposed" to die but didn't then God doesn't have a plan and all the floundering around trying to work it out is irrelevant.

The idea that God would need reports or disapprove of somebody's behaviour would only happen if God was not omnipotent and omnipresent. If he is, then, everything is his design by definition so I don't get the struggle here. Everyone is doing God's will all the time by definition.

The reports are obviously just a plot device- a way of telling us what Dan is thinking.

And you sort of get my point about fate not squaring with a Christian world view. It seems to me that the problem is that people have confused the idea that God has a will with the idea of everything happening having been pre-planned by God. The reality is different- God certainly has plans but human perversity means that those plans are often subverted. In the Navy I was taught that no battle plan ever survived contact with the enemy. The analogy here is that Gods plans often do not survive contact with people. That means that God is constantly having to make new plans- and in fact that is what we see here: Dan saved Yeon-seo from the car wreck (which was not God's idea but rather that of her evil cousin) and that is why Dan suddenly has a new mission- God made a new plan.

Very well said!

God's will is for everyone to exist in a unity of love with Him. But people have free will to choose to accept or go their own way. I guess that's what's so aggravating about the "fate" plotline. Hu is supposedly an archangel, posing as a Catholic priest, hanging out in a Christian church, and he's talking about fate and decisions from above that can't be changed. Um, no. If you wanted to use the fate card, writer, you should have chosen a religion that subscribes to fate.

I'm scrolling from the bottom up so I came to this after the comment below. Yes, your second paragraph about the timing of his mission is exactly how I feel. This fate plot was an after-thought and it doesn't even square with the original mission. This writer needs an editor to send the script back for continuity.

And you're absolutely right that Dan has succeeded in his vague mission. He helped transform YS from an angry, wounded, and isolated person to one ready to lay down her life for life, and he himself found love in the process. That's really been overshadowed by all the doom and gloom.

When I saw the bed scene I was like Oh, no Dan, you've forgotten about ten commandments! Then I checked how to translate the 6th or somewhere the 7th one to english from my native language and I did find only adultery. But in my language the 6th one translates like a sexual desire or act outside of marriage. I would like to know how it's in it's hebrew, the original language. Anyone?

I just learned recently that slavs didn't believe in fate. But it's kind of fascinating how fast they had accepted christian religion. But the biggest fate of human is that they need to die. It's horrifying, especially for those we love the most, for children.

I liked the moment where YSY is looking into any resources of angel's transformation to human. So the author did look at the movies I mentioned already. Jumping from high building... I love that it's a mixture of believes and fantasy. That's how Jesus was looking like to others with his revolution of kindness, generosity and love in the period of old testament cruelty. Jerusalem was a meeting point of the merchant road to the far East so he could actually be influenced of other religions at that time. It's funny, because while I was writing this somebody was knocking on my door and at the doorstep was a woman trying to do some missionary work for Christianity. Well we talked little bit, but I'm not in the mood now for it and she kindly understood, wasn't insisting too much.

Traditionally, 'adultery' was considered sex outside of marriage. Any sex outside of marriage, whether you were in a relationship or not. You can imagine how the modern sensibility reflected in the language feels about equating cheating and consensual sex between two single adults...

This shows how meanings change and how translations change. Who knows what the original commandment was actually against. Even if it was written in a form of Hebrew, it would have been an ancient form that would require translation -even into modern Hebrew.

But in modern parlance, the commandment is against adultery and there's nothing about sex before marriage.

Yeah, who knows?😉 It reminds me of a child's play "the telephone". There's the first one who pass massage on the second and than the second on the third one and so on and the last one is repeating what message he heard but I rarely saw the original message to pass unchanged.

The translations of Bible we know now was translated from ancient Greek and I think they translated it, the New Testament especially, from ancient armenian language. There were lots of transcription mistakes, because when monks were tired or didn't pay attention or they've done it intentionally there was enough to change or add or supreme a vowel or a consonant and the whole world, sentence has totally different meaning. We can rely solely on this devices.

I know that nowadays there is this trend of accepting fornication, and unfortunately even in k-dramas. 10 years ago, one of the reasons I loved them was the respect of marriage.
There are many bible verses which talk about pagan's sexual whereabouts which were strongly connected to idolatry (in case you don't know, in some cultures, every maid, before getting married had to be deflourished by her idol's statue.)
Do you feel uncomfortable? Think about her future husband!
Anyways, being a statue or a person, it's the same thing!
Read the bible! It says that if a virgin was raped and did not shout she had to be stoned to death. Not: oh, she was not married! It's okay. Let's celebrate instead!
The Bible is very clear. And even if the word fornication is not used, it is very clear that the sexual immorality is what we are talking about.

Colossians 3:5: “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.”
1Corinthians 7:8-9 urges, “Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do. But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.”

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 – Fornicators will not inherit God’s kingdom.
"Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived:
Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
1 Corinthians 7:2 "But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband."

Sorry if my comment offended anyone.
I am deeply disappointed by this drama, in many aspects. This was the cherry on top.

Hebrews 13:4
"Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous"

Sure, if you want to subscribe to a philosophy that equates rape, paedophilia, adultery and loving consensual sex between two adults as being the exact same sin.

This is exactly why the Catholic Church has a paedophilia problem - because it doesn't see the difference between abuse and consensual sex.

You can be raped within marriage, you can be abused within marriage. And you can have loving consensual sex outside of marriage. Anything that says marriage good/sex bad invites abuse - especially of women and children.

This is a completely fucked up morality and any God that would decree this is not any God worth worshipping by anybody.

7

To equate a woman's worth or value to her husband (and society as a whole) by the construct of her virginity has historically led not only to the commodification of women as an object, but also to women being raped as a form of property destruction. Additionally, the idea that any deity (or person who wrote the words) would prescribe that a rape victim be stoned to death if they do not shout during the act itself....well, yep, nope, I'm not gonna go with that one. So yeah, I'm offended.

Deuteronomy 22:23-24 "If a man happens to meet in a town a virgin pledged to be married and he sleeps with her, you shall take both of them to the gate of that town and stone them to death—the young woman because she was in a town and did not scream for help, and the man because he violated another man’s wife. You must purge the evil from among you."

Read for yourself! He must be stoned too. And if she would have met him in an isolated area, she wouldn't have been punished.
You can read more in that chapter. Actually, you can read more in the Bible, before jumping into conclusions!

God (who is worthy to be worshipped) bless you and peace be with you (or 안녕, if you want)!

That's what I'm taking about. All those letters were written by apostles, supposed to be so and you can see the strong influence of Old Testament in it. In those 4 canonical gospels there's nothing like that what we can read in the Acts of the Apostles, the fourteen epistles of Paul, the seven catholic epistles, and the Book of Revelation. It's bizarre how they can oppose each other. In canonical gospels Jesus is preaching (I don't have english version of Bible with me) that you can't judge people, you should start from yourself because nobody is sinless person, you shouldn't envy, etc. Than in those later mentioned there are things and rules which correspond to rules of hebrew society at that time and they are implying that law on Europeans. A human being didn't have much value at that time if it wasn't from privileged circles. That's why, even if I was half of my today's life catholic Christian, the second half, especially when I started to read the Bible myself and some events happened that I was questioning a lot the institution of church (any church), I've sticked just to those gospels and I don't like hypocrisy.

I don't mind mixing everything, because it's already mixed well together and it's fascinating how different cultures influence each other and how ordinary people perceive other religions. There's something similar between all those and that's love, a great energy above all even if hate is close behind

I agree that the theology/mythology of the show is a complete mess. The sudden reveal that human lives such as YS is all fate makes the whole story line of Dan becoming human irrelevant.

A few weeks ago, I thought there were "too many" angels populating the show (Hu, Dan, KW, the old man with the blind woman, and probably Elena). One trait that they all had in common is selfishness, which by most religious pretexts is not a sin in itself.

I thought that the real premise of the show could have been a purgatory for fallen angels, to test their faith with missions, so they could return to heaven. But there appears to be no consistent pattern of judgment or redemption to even support that theory.

I guess the only thing worse than the foreshadowed bittersweet ending would be that the show's final moment showing a young child, Dan, sitting in front of a computer screen of angels with a flashing GAME OVER arcade message.

Once again, Yeon-seo is awesome, the internal logic of this universe is non-existent and the writing is inconsistent. It's frustrating 'cause the early episodes of this show had so much potential, if only the writing could have lived up to it. At this point, I don't see how any ending we get is going to feel satisfying. Pulling these "rules" out of nowhere at the last minute, like Yeon-seo being fated to die, makes it all feel cheap. I'm hoping it can pull itself together in the end to at least give us a logical resolution, but my expectations aren't high.

Because It's My First Life really got me so disappointed. Loved it so much until the last 2 episodes when I couldn't figure out if I had been so blind to the FL character all along. Maybe the hints and clues had been dropped earlier and I missed them.

As for this show ... I will just finish it. As long as the leads don't suddenly change their personalities or characters to something unexpected, it should be safe enough. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the rest of the story will just work itself out.

BECAUSE ITS MY FIRST LIFE was and is a great show- with a single problem in the writing- which is that the central romance was really complete by the end of the 14th episode. In other words it was a problem of pacing. That is why the writer sent us all on what amounts to a 2 episode digression in order to fill out a full 16 episodes. The mistake would have been avoided by increasing the time spent on the other two couples while stretching the timeline on the central couple.

I reached this conclusion after watching BECAUSE THIS IS MY FIRST LIFE a second time- and catching things that I did not see the first time through. When you do that what you discover is that the typical foolish idiotic separation of the FL and ML which was unilaterally declared by Jung So-mins character was never intended to be permanent- she simply wanted to use time to clarify there relationship between her and the man she loved. It was a bonehead move, of course. But her intention was to return. And definitely a poor plot choice on the part of the writer.

@oldawyer There was another opinion also on the pacing, where it was suggested that with the poster of 'The Graduate' so prominently displayed, and more than once, that another ending was originally intended.

It might have been, that a couple more episodes to flesh out the 3 couples together and what getting on that bus at the end was supposed to mean, were left out. It was supposed to hearken back to The Graduate, somehow or to be linked,

This was an unusual suggestion that BIMFL had enough for 18-20 episodes, but that it might have been cut to fit 16.

As usual, the drama's writing, bad taste and treatment of the Christian faith is disrespectfully horrible 🙄🙄🙄.... By now, I'm sure I sound like a broken record about this issue

Yeon Seo (a la Shin Hye Sun's portrayal) is continuing to knock it out of the park and-- I can't believe I've reached this moment, but-- I'm slowly beginning to appreciate that Myung Soo is actually kinda good looking, especially when he smiles hehe-- and I'm not THAAAAT much of a noona, just a year older (according to Wikipedia)-- but everything else is beginning to fall flat for me, even the villains. Right when I was beginning to question what the deal is with Kang Woo, despite it already being so late in the drama and STILL not fully understanding this character (seriously, writers???), this episode happens, and now, all I really think of him is that he is PISSED & is turning into one of those spiteful "if I can't have it, then no one can either. If I'm not happy, then no one can be either" type of villains, and at this point, it's not even about his so-called 'feelings' for Yeon Seo anymore (but really, did anyone of us actually believe for even a second that he actually fell in love with her?? Cuz I di'n't), but that he sees just how happy Dan & Yeon Seo are together as angel & human, he sees how accepting Yeon Seo is of Dan, and Kang Woo is just in a sea of salty

The KW so-called loveline with YS was one of the worst portrayals or rather, non-portrayals of being in love I've noticed in recent times. We are not shown but we are told by Sunbae Hu that KW is in love with YS. I was quite floored when I deciphered what he meant. Where, when, how was it shown?

I'm glad that I've decided to watch only for the main OTP plotline. Show originally held great promise with a tease that there was much to reveal and so much potential for KW, Ni Na, maybe even for Ru Na or their parents, to change and become more than they are, or see what the deal was with Elena coming into the picture suddenly. With 2-3 episodes to go, I'm not too hopeful.

Still really liking this show even though it turns my brain to mush by the end of each episode. I think it's mostly because of Hoo.

Has Hoo known this the whole time or is he just now finding out from God? Very unclear.
