Missing 9: Episode 16 (Final)

It’s all come down to this moment — someone has to take responsibility for the deaths of Jae-hyun and So-hee, but what if the wrong person is being blamed? Justice is difficult to find when the powers that be are working against you, but Joon-oh and Bong-hee refuse to give up on clearing Joon-oh’s name. With faith and love on their side, they fight to the bitter end, determined to see the truth revealed no matter what it takes.

 
FINAL EPISODE RECAP

In exchange for Bong-hee’s freedom, Joon-oh turns himself in, but he stubbornly refuses to answer any of Prosecutor Lee’s questions. Once he’s nearly driven Prosecutor Lee to the brink of madness, Joon-oh offers to talk in exchange for a chance to speak with CEO Jang.

The plan is to drive a wedge between CEO Jang and Tae-ho, who made a deal together. CEO Jang confessed to everything, allowing Tae-ho to go free, and in exchange, Tae-ho agreed to get rid of Jang’s killer-minion, the only person who knows that CEO Jang tried to kill CEO Hwang.

But Tae-ho hasn’t made a move yet, and CEO Jang is beginning to feel as though he’s been duped. The timing is perfect for Joon-oh to exploit his paranoia, so once they’re alone, he asks CEO Jang if he’s seen or even heard from Tae-ho lately. He says that Tae-ho seems to have forgotten his promise, then adds that CEO Hwang has regained his ability to speak, prompting CEO Jang to try to leave the room.

Joon-oh grabs him and growls in his face, asking if he really trusts Tae-ho with his life. The cops quickly rush in and break up the two, but Joon-oh has accomplished what he set out to do. As CEO Jang is led back to his cell, he feels even more insecure about Tae-ho than ever.

Prosecutor Lee settles in to question Joon-oh again, but Joon-oh innocently claims that he never promised to confess. He says he’ll just go to trial, angering Prosecutor Lee so badly that he nearly has a stroke, heh.

Everyone gathers at Bong-hee’s place, where Tae-young tells them that Joon-oh’s going on trial is actually a good thing. It means their previous testimonies are nullified and gives them a chance to officially tell the truth. Prosecutor Jo will be acting as Joon-oh’s lawyer, having suddenly and conveniently changed jobs (and there’s a funny self-aware moment when Ho-hang is confused, and they tell him to just go with it).

Tae-young wants to call CEO Hwang as the first witness, but Byung-jae points out that he’s still pretty fragile. They agree to have Ho-hang talk to CEO Hwang and see what the boss wants to do.

In an attempt to drum up supporters for her campaign, Chairwoman Jo visits a small local restaurant, but the restaurant owner wants no part of her. No matter how hard Chairwoman Jo schmoozes, the owner sneers at everything she says, mentions the terrible job she did with the Special Investigation Committee before kicking her out.

CEO Hwang looks like he feels a lot better when Ho-hang asks him about testifying in Joon-oh’s trial. But he grows emotional at the thought, which sets off a severe coughing fit, so Ho-hang rushes him back inside the hospital. From a short distance away, Tae-ho watches and smiles a nasty little smile.

Chairwoman Jo resigns from the election, and she’s so focused on her problems that it’s a shock when she learns that Joon-oh turned himself in. Prosecutor Lee asks her to be a witness in the trial, thinking that her testimony will hold a lot of weight since she was the first to accuse Joon-oh of murdering So-hee. Chairwoman Jo tries to decline, but Prosecutor Lee refuses to take no for an answer.

Alone in his jail cell, CEO Jang thinks about Tae-ho’s promise to get rid of the evidence that he tried to have CEO Jang killed, including the man who carried out his orders. When Joon-oh had CEO Jang in his grip, he’d told CEO Jang that Tae-ho and Killer Minion seemed to be getting along famously when Byung-jae saw them together.

Former-prosecutor-turned-lawyer Jo tells Joon-oh that they’re closing in on Killer Minion, and that they believe that catching him will secure CEO Jang’s cooperation for their side. He passes along the world’s most awkward “Fighting!” from Bong-hee, which cheers Joon-oh immensely, and it’s even cuter the second time he does it.

When the day of the trial arrives, Tae-ho is called as the first witness. He testifies that, while stranded on the island after the plane crash, he personally witnessed Joon-oh kill So-hee.

He states that he grew worried when So-hee went out walking alone one night, so he went to find her. He describes watching Joon-oh brutally strangle So-hee from behind, while we see the truth: It was Tae-ho who killed her.

Prosecutor Lee questions Tae-ho about his previous claim that Joon-oh also tried to kill the other survivors. Tae-ho keeps to his story, saying that Joon-oh did it because they all knew he murdered So-hee. Throughout his testimony, Joon-oh just watches Tae-ho like this is the most entertained he’s been in ages.

When it’s Lawyer Jo’s turn to cross-examine Tae-ho, he asks Tae-ho to describe in detail how Joon-oh killed So-hee. Tae-ho fidgets and says that he didn’t see it that clearly, which contradicts his earlier statement that it wasn’t very dark when he witnessed the murder.

We flash back to a meeting between Tae-ho and Prosecutor Lee, who’d shown Tae-ho a copy of So-hee’s autopsy report. Prosecutor Lee found it interesting that So-hee died from strangulation, but there were no fingerprints on her body.

Tae-ho knows that’s because he used his jacket to cut off So-hee’s airway, but without time to think of a plausible explanation, Tae-ho is at a loss. He’s forced to say that he doesn’t remember exactly how Joon-oh killed her.

Next, Lawyer Jo asks what Tae-ho was doing while he watched So-hee being murdered, and Tae-ho answers that he was frozen in shock. The way Lawyer Jo breaks it down — that Tae-ho claims to have clearly witnessed the murder but can’t offer any details, nor did he try to help So-hee — makes Tae-ho’s whole story sounds vague and full of holes.

In another flashback, we see a meeting between Joon-oh, Lawyer Jo, Tae-young, and Bong-hee, where they planned to twist Tae-ho’s testimony in just this way in order to invalidate his statements. Lawyer Jo planned to lead him into making a mistake, and Tae-young had explained that it’s easy to do when someone is lying, because the things they say won’t add up.

Ho-hang leaves the courtroom just as Lawyer Jo makes a special request to add a witness, explaining that they weren’t sure if they could testify until today because of personal reasons. Prosecutor Lee asks the judge to disallow it, saying that those personal reasons make the witness’s testimony untrustworthy, but a doctor’s note confirms that the person is capable of giving a statement.

The doors at the back of the courtroom swing wide open to admit Ki-joon, Ji-ah, Ho-hang… and CEO Hwang. Yay! The look on Tae-ho’s face is priceless.

Though he’s still coughing from a bout with pneumonia, CEO Hwang is determined to testify. He whispers that not only is Joon-oh innocent, but that he tried his best to save as many lives as possible on that island. Moved almost to tears, Joon-oh watches his old boss with this beautiful mixture of admiration and pride on his face.

Looking scared, Tae-ho stands and leaves the room. He spots Chairwoman Jo in the lobby — she came to give her testimony, but after seeing CEO Hwang, she never went into the courtroom. Since the prosecution has no other witnesses, court is adjourned for the day.

As Joon-oh’s being led out, CEO Hwang finally looks up at him and gives him a tiny encouraging smile. Joon-oh smiles back at him, telegraphing his profound gratitude through his eyes.

Later, Tae-ho tells Prosecutor Lee that he saw Chairwoman Jo in the building during the trial. Prosecutor Lee worries that they lost an important witness, so he tells Tae-ho to go visit CEO Jang and to make it good, or else CEO Jang might just testify against him.

When Bong-hee visits Joon-oh later that day, he asks if CEO Hwang is okay, since he didn’t seem well. She says he was sick but is recovering, and it was very important to him to be there to testify. She adds that Tae-young and Lawyer Jo are meeting with CEO Jang later and encourages Joon-oh to stay strong just a bit longer.

Tae-ho does visit CEO Jang, explaining his absence by saying that he was waiting until he could bring good news. He tells CEO Jang that he’s located Killer Minion and plans to “take care of him” soon. But when asked where the man was hiding, Tae-ho gives a vague answer, which CEO Jang notices.

Tae-ho also tells CEO Jang that CEO Hwang’s health is worsening, so he won’t be able to tell anyone about CEO Jang’s guilt. But we’re shown that CEO Jang also met with Tae-young recently, who’d told him that they still haven’t found Killer Minion, yet they can still put him behind bars on CEO Hwang’s testimony.

He’d even brought CEO Hwang into the room to face CEO Jang, and CEO Jang had been too ashamed to look his old boss in the eye. All this means that CEO Jang now knows that Tae-ho is lying to his face, though he doesn’t let that on.

Tae-ho seems to know that he blew it, and when he gets in his van, which Killer Minion is driving, he tells him that he thinks CEO Jang will testify for Joon-oh’s side. Of course, Killer Minion’s solution is to offer to kill CEO Jang, and since Tae-ho likes the sound of that, he says they’ll come up with a plan.

When the friends are confused as to why CEO Jang would agree to testify for Joon-oh, Tae-young explains that CEO Hwang met with him the previous day. CEO Hwang had gasped that he’d love to tear CEO Jang to pieces, but he’d promised to be lenient if CEO Jang testifies that when Tae-ho was rescued, he’d confessed to CEO Jang that he killed So-hee.

Prosecutor Lee informs Tae-ho that CEO Jang will go on the stand tomorrow, which will mean big trouble for them both. He asks if Tae-ho can stop CEO Jang, and Tae-ho gets that familiar murderous look in his eye.

As he sits alone in his cell that night, Joon-oh imagines Bong-hee sitting there with him. She tells him the same things the real Bong-hee always tells him — that she misses him and worries about him. She says he’s doing well and asks him to endure it for just one more day.

The next morning, both Joon-oh and CEO Jang are led to transport vehicles to take them to the courthouse. CEO Jang sends Joon-oh a teeny smile, and they pull out. On the way they pick up a tail, Tae-young, but before they get into the city, Tae-young’s car is cut off by another car full of thugs.

Killer Minion comes out of nowhere and pulls in front of CEO Jang’s vehicle. The van careens out of control, causing both it and Joon-oh’s car to crash. Killer Minion gets out of his car and heads for CEO Jang’s van, stopping on the way to take a look at Joon-oh. Joon-oh is unconscious and bleeding badly from a head wound, so Killer Minion keeps moving.

Tae-young fights off the three thugs and calls Bong-hee. He tells her that he was attacked, and when Bong-hee says that Joon-oh hasn’t shown up, Tae-young says he’ll look for him. The friends at the courthouse are frustrated because Prosecutor Lee won’t allow the police to look for Joon-oh, but Bong-hee thinks of someone who can help.

Killer Minion pulls CEO Jang from the van just as Tae-ho exits their car. CEO Jang is forced to kneel in the road, and Tae-ho asks if he really plans to testify for Joon-oh. CEO Jang chuckles that he knows Tae-ho betrayed him, but Tae-ho doesn’t accept that excuse.

He reminds CEO Jang that he wanted to confess after Jae-hyun died, but CEO Jang said he’d take all the responsibility. Tae-ho looks pained as he says that he just wants to live a normal life, so he was forced to use violence to stop people from blaming him for Jae-hyun’s death. Well, I guess that’s one way of looking at it?

Crying now but with a steady voice, Tae-ho says that if he has to go down, he’ll take CEO Jang down with him. Then he hauls off and punches CEO Jang to the ground.

The person Bong-hee had in mind to help is Chairwoman Jo, and she snaps that Chairwoman Jo owes them this after the Special Investigation Committee turned into such a fiasco. Bong-hee says that if Chairwoman Jo had taken their side at the beginning, none of this would be happening now. She gives Chairwoman Jo one last chance to do the right thing.

Chairwoman Jo grudgingly admits that Bong-hee has changed a lot, and she makes a call. Whoever it is, she asks them for a favor, an Investigator Oh has a little celebration behind her back.

Joon-oh comes back to consciousness, and the first thing he sees is CEO Jang on the ground with Tae-ho’s hands around his throat. Tae-ho is crying and screaming as he squeezes the breath out of CEO Jang, blaming him for making him this way.

Joon-oh stumbles out of the car and screams Tae-ho’s name, and when Killer Minion comes at him, he manages to punch him hard enough to knock him out. Tae-ho seems to snap back to reality and lets go of CEO Jang.

Joon-oh yells that Tae-ho is just trying to cover up his mistakes and grabs him as he asks, “Will you keep killing people and running away all your life?” Tae-ho’s expression goes from defiant to sorrowful as Joon-oh crumples to the ground in front of him.

Joon-oh looks up at Tae-ho and asks if this will make him happy. He says that life was easier on the island when they didn’t have to care what people thought of them, and admits that he was happier there. Joon-oh softly begs Tae-ho to let it go, and with tears streaming down his face, Tae-ho falls to his knees.

Joon-oh says that they can’t go back to how things were, but he promises to stay by Tae-ho’s side like he’s always done. Tae-ho falls apart, sobbing and asking how he turned out like this, and the two friends sit together as the police arrive. Tae-ho bows his head in acceptance, while Joon-oh smiles at him sadly, but also with pride.

Bong-hee narrates that those who deserved punishment were punished, and we see Prosecutor Lee arrested for his part in the cover-up. Tae-ho stands trial for the murders, with Joon-oh standing by him as he promised.

Some time later, all of the friends gather at Bong-hee’s place to paint her rooftop, though they spend more energy painting each other than the furniture. Somehow even Tae-ho is there, looking nervous, but Joon-oh makes an effort to help him feel comfortable.

At one point, while everyone is playing, Joon-oh steps in poop, and everyone teases him like he stepped on another land mine. They all head inside leaving him standing on the poop except for Bong-hee, who warns him not to pick his foot up or it will smell even worse.

Joon-oh looks pleased that she stayed to keep him company, then pouts that she’s not wearing the necklace he gave her. He points out some paint near her mouth, shyly reaching out to wipe it off himself. When that doesn’t work he says there’s something else they can try, and starts to lean in. Rawr.

Bong-hee is all about this idea and even puckers up, but just as Joon-oh works up the nerve to kiss her, their friends all burst back outside, and they fly apart guiltily. Apparently Byung-jae forgot about an interview he scheduled for Joon-oh, so Joon-oh gamely tries to act dignified in front of the camera while covered in paint, replete with Ho-hang running around in the background like a lunatic.

Tae-ho is also interviewed, and while he tries to offer a sincere apology, Ki-joon keeps sneaking up behind him and smacking him in the head. Ji-ah and Bong-hee also get in on that action, because it never, ever gets old.

Everyone gets a chance to be on camera, and their interviews range from silly to heartfelt. Even CEO Hwang speaks, stating that they’re still searching for Yeol and they refuse to give up on finding him. You’re not the only one.

Eventually they finish painting the wall and stand back to admire their handiwork — but Bong-hee and Joon-oh pronounce it a disaster. Everyone blames everyone else for ruining the paint job, then they pose for a group photo as one big happy family.

 
COMMENTS

Well I have to say, I had higher hopes for this finale after the last few episodes seemed to be building us up to something huge. While I’m not exactly disappointed with the show as a whole, the ending leaves me with a lot of questions and confusion. First of all, for a show that did a pretty good job keeping us on our toes, all of the big emotional moments in the final episode fell a bit flat, having all been telegraphed way ahead of time. The moments were still enjoyable, such as CEO Hwang’s testimony and Tae-ho’s final confrontation with Joon-oh, but we lost a lot of the emotional punch because we could see it all coming half an episode away. Between that and Chairwoman Jo and the prosecutors’ complete lack of motivation for manipulating the murder evidence, you get a show that cut its own legs out from under it in terms of suspense and impact. And that last part is such a shame, because even I can think of a few reasonable and plausible potential motives right off the top of my head, so it’s not like the show wrote itself into a corner with no way out.

Also, I’m still scratching my head over the way many of the characters’ stories were left sort of unfinished. The most egregious offense is Tae-ho’s stupidly easy return to the Light Side, prompted only by Joon-oh asking him to stop and earning him total forgiveness and friendship from the very people he spent months trying to permanently eliminate. It just, it makes no sense — this is the guy who killed three of the survivors’ closest friends and (probably) a reporter, attempted to kill most of the rest of them, got caught when he tried to kill yet another person to cover up the first few murders, but I guess he was sorry, so all is forgiven? And apparently, he doesn’t even serve any jail time? I’m sorry, but no, that’s not how it works. That is not someone you just let back into your life for the sake of adorable painting shenanigans.

And while I’m complaining about things that make no sense, how hard would it have been to give us some closure on Yeol? Okay okay, I admit that he’s not coming back, but it makes me sad that once they got back from the island he was just never mentioned again, except for a throwaway comment at the end. In fact, Yeol isn’t the only thing in the show that just got forgotten — whatever happened with Joon-oh’s drunk driving charges? I was expecting him to be exonerated for that. I still want to know why So-hee had a false memory of being on the roof with Jae-hyun when he died. And what was it with the monotone clothing during the first few weeks of the show? I notice that in the final scene, everyone was wearing monotone again, but now it was splashed with bright color. I feel like the show was trying to make a statement there, but I just can’t figure out what it was. Maybe that their lives were flat and boring before, but now they’ve been through tragedy together so life is bright and cheerful? I dunno.

But despite my complaints, and they are numerous, I did enjoy Missing 9 quite a lot during its run. As many things as it did wrong, it also did a lot of things right, mostly in terms of casting, which was pretty much perfect. The characterizations were fantastic, the music was exceptional, and none of the castaways suffered from the same inconsistent personality issues as the bad guys back home. They all stayed true to themselves, and even after mostly changing for the better during their four-month island ordeal, they all acted predictably within their personalities. I really fell in love with all of them, and when I think back on Missing 9, it’s the people that will mostly stick with me.

Joon-oh in particular was such a rich, complex character, played to perfection by Jung Kyung-ho. His arc from a down-and-out, insufferable, self-important actor to the guy who turned out to have more love and forgiveness in his heart than anyone was really beautiful to watch. He believed in the goodness of people even when faced with all evidence to the contrary, and even when there was nobody in the world to love and forgive him in return. But Bong-hee saw the good in Joon-oh and teased it out, just by being steadfast and loyal, something that none of his show business friends would do for him. And her belief in Joon-oh is what saved him, both literally and figuratively, and allowed him to safely become the wonderful guy he always hid inside. If nothing else, Joon-oh’s journey to himself made Missing 9 well worth watching. We could all take a lesson from Joon-oh and Bong-hee’s friendship — in this world, as long as you have someone to love and who loves you, you can endure anything.

I agree...The last 1/4 of the finale really fall flat n left me disappointed n scratching my head too as I watched especially the last painting scene. I almost thought that they were doing a BTS clip/interview !! I also can't believe how Tae Ho can changed back to being a good guy so easily ! And what?! He killed a couple of the ppl n yet he was let loose !!??

I wish that they would have put in a little more scenes of Joon Oh and Bong Hee's vague romance and maybe BH returning the necklace to Prosecutor Yoon. And also a good rs coming the way to Ki Joon and Ji Ah maybe. Sigh.....

Tae Ho was not let loose.
There are guards with him, so he's probably on a leave or something. He was in prison otherwise.

That was more of a behind the scenes clip of Jeju-do. That door scene is from earlier in in the series when Bonghee still had memory loss. The door was used as a figurative closed door of her memory of the island during one of her dreams.

I think I know what happened to Yeol. While he was floating on the ocean, he fell into a hole... one of the many plot holes. But this time it was a black hole, so he ended up in a parallel universe. There, they don't know what music is, and when Yeolie started to sing, they declared him a superstar and wouldn't let him go anywhere. Also, in that universe the dramas don't have plot holes, so that's why he can't come back to our world.
Also, whatever you might say about my scriptwriting talents, I still think my script is better than the scene where the serial killer happily paints together with his victim's brother.
And to think that I really really liked the last episodes...

I thought Yeol was running around with amnesia somewhere in china and maybe found a family that took him in and started a new life...
But then again face down in water and unconscious he might just have drowned :(

The last past got me scratching my head, making me quite confused ( like how taeho gets to escape jail term?! ) but overall a great show!

I was also anticipating some romance between Ki Joon and Ji Ah. He always appeared to be like he kinda like her for a long time too. Anyway I know this isn't a romance genre drama but still the biggest disappointment was the reasons as commented earlier by me too already...

Exactly.

It can explain Tae-Ho being there but it doesn't answer the question - Why was Tae Ho there. What +ve outcome the agency predicted will come throw a killer's interview.

Not only that - So Hee's brother is playing there and laughing.

Its like Characters themselves knew those who were removed were just characters.

This show just completely fell apart and I felt it coming half way through the series. Like how So Hee was convinced Joon Oh murdered Jae Hyun and the all the sudden it was like "she was just pretending??" because Reporter Kim had evidence with him. Oh wait, Reporter Kim just randomly popping up on the island? That was the point where I felt the writers were picking options out of the hat to see where the story line went. What about the three girls that were also on the plane? Why even add them in into the show? Technically, it should have been missing 13 (or 15 if you count the pilots). Don't even get me started on Yeol.

I loved the show, I really did, but why leave so many story lines open ended? You want to be lazy and make Tae Ho a good guy, fine (but not really fine, cause he murdered like 5 people) but explain it in a manner that won't leave the viewers scratching their heads and wondering if everyone got a lobotomy before their weird paint party.

I thought at the last scene that all of them have forgotten how evil and murderous TH was at the earlier episodes....maybe they are now suffering from amnesia like how Bong Hee was at the earlier part of the show....

My theory now is that they're all dead because TaeOh killed them all. Only way to explain how they could be acting like he was some cousin who went away to jail for dealing drugs instead of going to jail for being a murderous psychopath who killed/attempted to kill them and their friends.

It was live shoot so script saw a lot of changes. Random info was added in all of the episodes whether it made sense or not.

Those 3 girls were like extra - There were 47 ppl on the plane and with the luck-of-whole-world everyone from the agency survived. That was clear enough a flag to go without holding much expectations from the logic of the show.

Same with Yeol - scripwriter didn't know what to do with him so he was forgotten as a character. He received Treatment of Extras. A lose mention of him in the last 1 minute of the show was more of a mockery of the whole set-up.

I've heard the show was cut from 20 episodes to 16.
But not sure, just saying...
It would surely explain why it left so many stories unfinished. And also, maybe they were planning for Yeol to show up later on, but because they cut the number of episodes, writers had no way to put him there.
It could have been due to Chanyeol's schedule since it wasn't a pre-produced show or maybe they had footage with Yeol but it wouldn't fit the storyline.

Also, the last part when they all look at the finished wall and Joon Oh and Bong Hee agree that they are doomed because it is a disaster and an epic fail, it really feels like they are saying that about the show. Like, sorry guys, it turned out like that. An epic fail.
But I could be just biased.
But even their faces look a bit... sad.

Well, I have definitely enjoyed the ride, especially the island parts and every scene with Bong Hee and Joon Oh.
Thanks Missing 9!

Tae Ho being still unrepentful would be more convincing in my opinion too. I can't believe that he easily cried just over a few words of Joon Oh and gladly to be arrested by the police. So was he on bail or what at the last scene? It seems like the scriptwriter didn't really have a good idea on how he or she wants the finale to end in a good note so ended it in an any-how and rushed manner.

I whole heartedly agree. It's like the writers were flipping a coin to see where Tae Ho would land. The ending is just so bizarre.

With all the changes to writers / plot / series title, maybe we can use them to construct an (unlikely) explanation for the ending. I mean, it might not have been so out of place in a series with the original title "Gaia".

So, lets try to persuade ourselves that the first writer wrote it for a series where it might have fit in, then the later writers forgot to change it?

yeah ...its funny you got me thinking the series was a mimicry of American series "Lost" that ppl from crash survived in an island.. stories.. evil coming out of em ..flashbacks.. memory loss .. also the way it finished.. just like this one.. a happy scene with every good n evil character in it.... which is interpreted mostly as being the 'Limbo' n they were all dead in fact but needed time or whatever to get over it n understand it or whatsoever theory they hold for many alike after death movies specifically those involving airplane crash

(seriously! this is the only explanation for the bullshit ending and the whole senselessly wage drama...but believe it or not it was not only even close to endings of movies like 'Lost' but also ruined it for the whole drama altogether" i personally gave it a try for its unique theme..well ..what do you know ! )

anyways.. so the series tried to make a parallel "lost" which couldn't even end up being a parody n mockery ..what a waste!
so i strongly believe the series failed in many many aspects.. the minimum of which being multiple screenwriting which obviously occurred so many times during filming.. like there were no original script .. just "write as you go" kinda drama..

it basically sucked 'af' since there was neither original nor clear-cut story line n plot..
what was with the title?.. what was with the number 9? nonsense.. i mean "missing 9" is supposed to be about 9 people missing.. there were 47 n it was like all the rest was found expect for 9! n at first they were not even presumed missing but DEAD!
don't even get me started with Yeol..
....
apart from all acting was brilliant. in like all of them.. expect for some parts mostly last ep. all actors did a good job for such a drama.specially the main 2. i mean its not their fault writers suck, is it? maybe only if they didn't choose to do such a duffus Drama like.. "that blindly!" don't hate me if I likes Tahoe's acting the most! ..
halfway on it seemed there is nothing more left to say so they made it even worse by all the changes n stuff..n by the last scene, God they completed their art!! i was literary like W T F!! again it was stupid parody ..in a nutshell!! series failed! worst series of my entire KDrama Life.
------
It seems Korean dramas are headed downward .. there is no new themes.. no unexpected incidents.. no new way of drama making.. it keeps failing the audience.. who are growing day by day n need something worth to watch! at least worth their time! not some clichés over n over n over again!
its time for fellow directors n writes to understand this.. Kdrama is not as good as before.. in fact, its going to end itself in near future.

The writer seems like he left the show because of the low ratings or was killed by TH, then TH took over and finished the show with him painting happily with everyone else forgiving his crimes because he's a lonely soul who was victimized by evil CEO jung, and wanted really to confess but CEO wouldn't let him..poor TH

Can I say im overwhelmingly dissapointed in the way jong ho & Bong hees relationship wrapped up.

Forget a confession not even a poop covered kiss.

In case youre going to say but they were busy clearing his and trying to survive.

Pish pash ! Jia and kijoon kissed & even confessed (well faux confession) back on the island midst the murder mayhem.

6 episodes I waited for this but not even a last minute kiss.
Was it too much to ask ?

I believe that Tae-Oh is out on a parole from jail - you could see police officers in the background in the last few scenes.

I was hoping to have some humour in the last part, and it never fails me! I enjoyed how Ji-ah, Bong Hee, and Ki Joon smacked Tae-Oh's head. Like what you said, it never gets old! I also enjoyed how Hohang ran around like a lunatic screaming that Joon-oh stepped on poop when Joon-oh himself is trying so hard to cover it.

I really enjoyed Missing 9 as a whole and I am gonna miss the 9 of them (of course I wouldn't forget Yeol!) next week. Good thing tho, my mother is starting to watch it now that it has finished it's run! I get to recap it a little!

I love Jung Kyungho since Once Again Happy Ending and I was half-following Baek Jinhee since I watched High Kick 3. I really love the pair and I was really hoping they would end with a kiss or an over shoulder hug type of contact (I even imagined it!)

I also love the badass Ji-ah and how it was a collective effort to make her not do anything in the previous episode. It would be great if we get to see Ji-ah and Kijoon together tho...

Other than the suspending plot, one thing I really like about this drama is the badass, strong female characters. I've always love it when the female characters are strong women who need no help from men. Which is why Ji-ah climbed through the top as one of my favourite character in the drama!

I really hope there is a proper closure, but I would be looking forward to the casts next project too! Until we meet again, Missing 9!

Whats even weirder than Tae- ho joining the painting melee

is Sohee brother & her murderer harmoniously painting together & having fun.

My guess is the team wanted taejoon in the final shot because they bond was so strong with their cast member. They wouldn't have it any other way. So they decided to give story logic a finger beacuse they wanted all the cast members together.( It would have been weirder if Chairwoman Jo was there.)

If you watch the final scene closely its a mash between breaking the 4th wall & staying in their characters. ( Not smoothly done. Bit akward. )

I buy Tae ho confessing to the crime. It felt organic to me. He was reaching a breaking point. Made sense after being left completly alone there was no place else to escape. Jong ho friendship was a soothing balm at that moment. ( In epi 12 when he first saw jung ho alive he was happy to see him alive)

The writer isn't Han Jung-hoon from Police Squad 38. The scriptwriter is Son Hwang Won, and his credit only included 2 dramas before this: Save The Last Dance For Me and a drama special. Writer Han Jung-hoon is credited on this drama as creator. Maybe he only wrote the main idea of this story, and let the scriptwriter develop it. I wonder if that's because writer Han Jung-hoon (probably) has an exclusive contract with OCN?

Missing 9 was a drama I didnt have on my list but saw it after reading the recaps of the first 3 eps. The show really did have some unexpected and intersting twists which made me follow the drama till the end. I didnt know how the show would end but I felt a little disappointed.
Anyways I am happy to have travelled with this drama and going to miss all the cast and the cute romace with our leads.

Why oh why? It is sad enough to see one of your favorite show to end but why oh why does it have to end like this. Its kind of frustrating and disappointing.

I love the show and i was really invested with all the characters. A little romance between the leads wouldn't hurt. They should have gone for it even just for fanservice.

Kyungho did well with the overall Jong ho character except for that last confrontation scene with tae ho. I can't feel him. I see his eyes smiling rather than crying. I don't know what happened but I know he is better than that.

Then about tae ho, it could have been better and much more acceptable if he had the change of heart during the time he realized that the death of jaehyun wasn't really entirely his fault. He should have shown remorse and tried to repent/pay for his sins by confessing and accepting the consequences rather than pushing it through the end. It would have been easier to forgive him if its like that. (On a positive note, the actor who played TH did pretty well I think. I hated him so much. Hhah)

Arghh. Another I love the show but i hate the ending drama. Oh dramaland, why do you have to be so cruel. Hahaha... anyway, I'll just keep the happy memories. And wait for the next project of my favorite cast Thanks for filling out my thurs-friday night Missing 9! I'll be missing you.

I guess I'll be the first one and say that I like the ending.
It was somehow surrealistic and more about how they felt and not about what they did.
They found colors, Joon-oh continued visiting Tae-ho and finally he found some peace.
I would even say that this little speech between him and Tae-ho really changed things.
The thing Tae-ho always wanted was to live like a normal person, he often said it to other characters and when Joon-Oh told him that it wouldn't be possible, it wouldn't make him happy he finally realised how true that statement was.
Whole drama he was thinking about one thing-survival and at some point he forgot that he had no reason to want it.
I am a little bit terrified to say that but I understand where Joon-oh was coming from when he said he would continue being his friend. Afterall at the end of the day Tae-ho was scared, alone and with no hope that anything would get better. For good people like Joon-Oh it is impossible to leave this friend behind. He was always like that, never giving up on anyone and trusting them even if it was against logic.

I don't know if in real life I would forgive someone like TH, who murdered in a cold blood and blackmailed his friends because he's lonely I doubt that would happen, those people were scared to death on that island with a serial killer on the lose with them.

It isn' only about him being lonely.
In real life people don't always make logical decisions, they might know it is wrong but still insist on doing that. It is strange, like forgiving your friend because at some point he helped you, was by your side, you saw his awkward moments, laughted with him and for those moments/memories you promise yourself to try to forgive.
Another thing is that Joon-Oh needed Tae-Ho to have choice and give up, he needed a reason to be by his side, he needed to know that his friend is still there,
It was also said that Joon-Oh, Yeol and Tae-ho were team, group which has been through thick and thin, losing one of close friends is hard enough and losing another one would be even more sad.
As Joon-Oh said they wouldn't be as they once were, but he would still be by his side with the price of showing that he is willing to change

I commented the same thing on some other site, but I guess I really felt bad that people hated the ending and made it all about no kissing or it being unlogical...like show didn't even tried to make it look realistic. The real story ended when court made the decision.
I don't think the roof scene was random, because we often saw how important the colors were. I thought about it and in every beige scene someone felt hopeless, so it was only natural that in court scene the one with the most colors, wearing the same red turtlenack was Joon-oh for Tae-ho. His only friend and hope.
To be honest this show had tons of plot holes, forgotten story lines, but had good start, strong cast, great main hero and perfect ending. I can't ask for more

It was never mentioned, but is it possible Tae Ho got some kind of temporary insanity plea? He was on such a downward spiral of self pity and self preservation that it took his attempting to strangle the life out of CEO Jang in the bright light of day and Joon Oh's begging him to stop that finally got through to his crazed brain. But this could only work in fantasy-land. Deep down he is a killer and the thought that he was out on parole is incredible.
The show liked its lighter tone to much to dwell on the dark side of their story so we have a very saccharine ending of forgiveness and frolic.
I burst out laughing at the mention of finding Yeol because I had forgotten about him again. As unlikely as the rest of the story was, they could have brought him back as a ghost for the paint party.
I have to comment on that awful raspberry colored blood that was used on Joon Oh in the accident. I couldn't take the confrontation scene with Tae Ho seriously because that terrible fuchsia red blood clashed Joon Oh's terribe orange hair. Which is too bad because I thought that was a pretty good scene. I wanted to believe that Jooh Oh was finally able to get through to Tae Ho's last shred of humanity.

Here's my take on the ending; there were 2 parts to the ending. The scene where Tae-ho is in court and convicted is the 1st part where all their turmoil ends. The 2nd part where they are all in the roof is more like imagination, what perhaps Joon-Oh would like to have, everyone happy like they were once.
Also here is my take on the colored clothes. Beige was to represent the muddled past. When the characters wore color was to represent the present. When they are all wearing white its representing their imagination. Hence in the final scenes everyone was wearing white and perhaps the reason they were painting in color was to represent what they would have liked to be/have.
Overall I liked the show even with its downsides. What I really liked about the show was that it treated the viewers smartly. It would give you small clues that if not paid close attention to it wouldn't have seemed like much but at the end it reveled a lot. For example in the flashback to the last night of Jae-hyun where we saw a CD w/Tae-ho's name a lot of people didn't think much of it until it was revealed that Jae-hyun was the one singing for Take and suddenly everything made so much sense.

It's a weird ending and Im a little bit dissappointed on that. Just set aside the fact that Yeol is still missing and there is almost no lovey dovey scene between Joon Oh and Bong Hee, but how can someone escape punishment for murder? Tae Ho not only killing So Hee in this drama.

But then when I try to understand what really happen on the final scene, maybe..maybe it is a dream sequence. Joon Oh dream and hope. I try to relate on what Joon Oh told Tae Ho before.

"Since I am a good person, I will be with you".

I think this is the ending that Joon Oh wanted. Not to punish Tae Ho but give Tae Ho the chance to change and be happy with everybody. (but still i cannot convince myself with Tae Ho being a free man after committing not only one but few murders..can i say that it is because im a lawyer myself so i wish that he should get sever punishment and serve justice? hahaha)

Im also a little bit dissappointed there is almost no lovely scene between Joon Oh and Bong Hee. The scene when they try to kiss make me laugh actually and again I try to understand that the drama is not a romcom or melo so it's okay. emmm..

I know that everyone still hoping Yeol will make sudden appearance in this ep, but no he is not. Just that President Hwang did mention they didnt gave up on Yeol yet. Maybe sequel of the drama with the title Missing Nine: Yeol hahahaha

So after a roller coaster ride of emotional, mystery, the wrap up of this drama had left a tiny hole in my heart that this is not a kind of ending that wanted, partly because of Tae Ho. I guess I just need to tell myself that Joon Oh want it that way. It is Joon Oh dream and hope. We know what kind of man Joon Oh is. Tae Ho is his brother, he try to safe him. He want Tae Ho to be happy. He want all of them just be like before.

I will miss this drama and all cast. And now I need to watch something else but cannot find one yet. No drama can hook me up other than Missing 9 and Chief Kim lately. Idk why but even I didnt find myself attracted to Defendant "legally" hahaha. But I know it's a good drama thou. ???

Couldn't they at least link the plane crash to the murders? Like it was planned by CEO Jang to kill everyone to eliminate his rivals. The crash felt like it was the main highlight of the show and viewers would be guessing the mystery of it but it was actually just a minor theme!! Something that so randomly happened for Tae Ho to start his killing spree. And 80% of the rest of the drama just revolved around and around one unexciting murder case. So much let down.

Possible reasons for the weird ending

1. The whole drama is a long nightmare dreamed up by Tae ho. He drank too much, watched a slasher movie on TV, fell asleep, and started to dream.

2. They are all dead. They died early on, before the plane crash. That's why they were dressed in beige colours: they are souls in transit. They died in that building, the one they were painting in the last scene. It collapsed, crushing everyone inside. They were all there that day for a photoshoot.

Most of this drama was interesting and thought-provoking especially the initial episodes when the castaways were still on the island. But this finale did fall flat. I was a bit worried about CEO Hwang's safety, but the rest of the episode didn't have much suspense.

Tae Ho's teary breakdown was pretty convincing (or at least the actor was). I think his mindset had changed ever since he learned the truth about Jae Hyun's death. He seemed to have felt more guilt and regret about the choices he made. It may have been better to see him struggle against Joon Oh, but then get caught by the police. And then later have his breakdown.

Joon Oh is too good of a person. I didn't support him when he said he would still stay by Tae Ho's side.

The painting scene was just strange and off-putting. I didn't enjoy it. I would like it more if it excluded Tae Ho and Investigator Oh. Only the core group would have been better and more believable.

The plot was pretty good but ratings somehow fell halfway. Not surprising since the ending was pretty disappointing. It wasn't wrapped up well. The writer should really have added romance. It was pretty stingy of the writer not to sum up the romance portion. They should have showed Bong Hee wearing the necklace at the end, to make it more obvious they liked each other.

They also should have found yeol's body. They should have showed the chairwoman being a better leader after learning her lesson, instead of going for a vacation and who cares if that's that guy's aunt?

Oh, I also anticipating the plane crash to be manipulated by Jang Dol Pal or at least something along those lines.

I wasn't convinced that Tae Ho repented at the car accident. They should have showed him in a positive light in jail, thanks to everyone's support.

But overall, I appreciate that this drama is also about Joon Oh's transformation journey. In any regards, I enjoyed the show.

And the final, final star in all the ridiculousness for me was when they wheeled CEO Hwang into the courtroom and - WOW - a miracle! After a steel beam fell on his head, crushed his car, put him into a coma and made him basically unable to speak and function, he comes in with his beautiful bald head (and I love this actor - especially as the monk in "Let's Fight Ghost!") completely clear of any scars or dents or damage of any kind!!! I think I know what happened. The continuity manager of this drama quit early in the game. I knew we were in trouble in the previews a month before Missing Nine started when we saw them unpacking DRY clothes on the beach from suitcases that were waterlogged.

I may be wrong but I always assumed that this series was the Korean version of the popular American TV show "Lost". If that is the case, all of the triumphs and mishaps which happened during the show, both on the island, in China and Seoul, occurred after the character's deaths in the plane crash. What you are watching is each persons individual, as well as the collective ability to come to terms with this.
The final two scenes, the painting on the roof, and then the random closed door would indicate that the characters have finally reached acceptance and moved on which explains why everyone is there and there is no conflict.

What a crazy show I cannot believe sat thru all 16 episodes. The ending scene with all of them wearing beige clothes and splashing paint around was surreal.

How can ppl continue to think Yeol is maybe alive somewhere.He was beaten and sent out floating into the ocean!!!

Tae Ho seems to only be charged maybe slight charges for Jae hyun and So hee's death is my reasoning why he out on parole or visit with those 2 police officers on the rooftop. There really is no evidence of him killing the other people on the island. The survivors testimony is thrown out as there guven conflicting reports.

I should really choose my dramas more better even if they are all available on my cable provider and I am able to record and watch them at any time.

This show took bromance to a whole new level.
It should have been called Bloody Bromance or Bromancing the Murderer.

It just showed the dramaland that even though a guy is a psychopath and killed a few people throuhout the show, bromance will stay and push through!
Just like they promised one each other on the night before their debut, these boys trusted each other (at least Joon Oh did) and weren't suspicious of each other (come on, everyone knew it was Tae Ho who killed Yeol, of course, IF he is dead).

So, this is a story of a strong, neverending bromance that overcomes every wrongdoing and every mental illness.

I'll buy the last scene as a weird fantasy sequence, but I was hoping Yeol would be a secret witness. And I would have been happy if they cut the car chase/tears scene a lot and had more happy at the end (they could have done a 30 second year-later epilogue at the end. With kisses!). And I would have bought that Tae-ho was giving up because he's cornered, but not because he feels remorse. Like, at a certain point (sirens, maybe?) he would have to realize that he couldn't escape any more. I don't know, I would have put up with a lot more for the nutty side characters. I would watch another show of them being dumb and silly together trying to run a music company. Heck, they could share a universe with all the other fictional music companies and we could have the longest-running, low-plot, emotionally-compelling show ever (I'm also watching Best Hit and You're Beautiful and I'm enjoying the dream of 50+ episodes of inter-show hijinks).
