Was anybody else uncomfortable with the ending of Where Stars Land? Judging by the fan wall, I guess we all were a little or a lot confused and angry at how things were wrapped up. Beanies have a way of writing how I feel, so I’ll just echo those sentiments by writing What The Even Heck show! I almost threw my remote at the tv when the one year skip came along, but refrained myself and threw it at the couch. By the time the final scene rolled, my eyes were so rolled back too I had to stop or I was going to get a headache. For the most part I enjoyed it, that’s why it was a pity it ended that way. Sometimes you only remember how it ends and not the means getting there. Sigh.

    I havent finished it yet but i know i spent the first fifteen mins thinking ‘how annoying WHY are we spending this precious time on gangsters and Inwoo!!’ And how does he not collapse when half his body looked like its rotting from the inside.

    Bracing myself for the rest of the episode.

      I think that they were going for 20 episodes and only got 16. Which ugh! because the writer clearly had many things they needed to wrap up and also why! choose the gangsters. When 30 But 17 got cut, you could see where things were left hanging, but at least it gave us otp moments and their own personal growth that I ended up loving it despite its loose threads.

    I don’t think the ending was all that atypical when it comes to Korean dramas — the hero or heroine being gone for a year (to study, for work, etc.) comes up in soooo many that if I started naming them I’d be here all day! However, the strange part of it was the way it was filmed, with no surety that it was actually Lee Je-hoon hugging her back. Was the actor already off on break or filming another project? Did I miss something about that? And, if it was him, how weird was the direction to have him standing like a post as if he wasn’t actually all that thrilled to see her. The little dust-buster robot had a more emotional response at their reunion 😛

    As for the gangster nonsense, that might have seemed like filler, but it was there for “Hyung’s Redemption,” so the two step-brothers could take down the bad guys who contributed to the ruin of their lives once and for all.

    The show had some cute moments, but it felt too much like kids playing dress-up when it came to that crop of security agents who barely looked out of high school. Was the secondary romance appealing as those actors delivered it? Yeah, but all the rest of it strained credulity.

      One year time skips are my biggest pet peeve in dramas. Like what if she was having a bad day, and you can’t expect your feelings to remain the same after a year of not seeing them. I guess they are going for absence makes the heart grow fonder, but I just don’t like it. And who knows what was going on in that last scene. It looked so awkward and I’m with everyone that it did not look like Lee Je-hoon! Maybe we will hear about it later in interviews but who knows.
