Meanhwhile, Utsumi discovers that Yukawa excels in squash and looks good while doing that!

Episode 3- Yukawa's student asks Yukawa's help in solving the disappearance of his brother in law. Yukawa instead refers it to Utsumi.

She has also did her own investigation, and finds that the people living in the house now acts suspiciously, and exits the house at certain times in the night.

Episode 4- A girl gets killed in the pool. Police suspects that she died from heart attack. Yukawa suspects that it's homicide, but doesn't understand how it could happen.

Episode 7- A newlywed man, receives a call from his mistress and sees that she commits suicide in another room across his apartment. His friend, sees the situation and runs across to prevent it.

But, he didnt recognize the person at that time.

Episode 8- A woman at a cooking school was stabbed more than 100 times, and the last person seen leaving the school, fell to his death after leaping out of the window.

Kdrama-Why Did You come to my house? Ending

The plot was quite unique and that was why I gave it go. It started off with Mi Soo, the rich girl and Gi Dong the guy who views money as everything to a completely different situation. Mi Soo is now poor, because her father's company has gone bankcrupt, and to add to the complexity of the situation, her father has dementia. Episode 19 ended with lots of suspense, Mi Soo feels sorry for Kang Jae (ex-boyfriend) after she learns the truth about him. He wasn't the bad guy that her father had described, in fact he tried to save her father's company. Because of Mi Soo's father, Kang Jae had a bad accident before, and now he has to go to US to have surgery. Mi Soo feeling sorry and guilty for misunderstanding him, consented to go to US too. She promised Gi Dong that she'll be back, but Gi Dong still feels uneasy and urges her not to go.
The other storyline that i really like is between Mi Soo's youngest sister, Eun Soo, and her gangster boyfriend. He has since quit the mafia, and is in hiding, so that he can go after Eun Soo.

The last episodes starts off with Mi Soo, who had a fever the night before, in the car with Kang Jae on the way to the airport. Kang Jae is happy but notices that Mi Soo is very depressed.
When Mi Soo wakes up, she finds herself back at her house. Kang Jae thanks her for her willingness to go with him to US, but then he escorts her back to her house. Kang Jae says that this is the last thing he can do for her, to leave her. And then Mi Soo hugs Kang Jae, and thanks him for coming back for her, or she'll be hurt forever.

Kang Jae, shakes her off, and walks away. (Oh, thank you Kang Jae, it has just been dragged far too long..) Mi Soo sobs as she looks on while Kang Jae drives away.
Kang Jae's tears flow too, when he remembers the time he had with her, and the suffering he had to go through to get back to her.

Meanwhile, Gi Dong has left his retarded brother, Su Dong at a orphanage He lost his job because of Su Dong, but he gets a call-back from the construction company to go back to work.
Gi Dong tells his friend that he trusts Mi Soo, but if she doesnt come back, he won't blame her. He now wants to pursue his dream of being an architect, something that Mi Soo encouraged too.
"Even if Mi Soo comes back, I won't meet her, till i succeed"
His friend, knowing Gi Dong's intention, tells her that Gi Dong is busy. And that Su Dong is at the orphanage. Mi Soo immediately takes Su Dong home, and then contacts Gi Dong with a voicemail, explaining her situation.
Mi Soo tells Gi Dong: "come back quickly"
Gi Dong leaves a voicemail: "I want to plan my future for you. So, please give me more time, and wait for me?"
Mi Soo(in voicemail)" i'll wait for you"

Bok Hee (Gi Dong's ex-girlfriend) gets a call from Kang Jae (they are gym friends) and is surprised.. Bok Hee asks why Kang Jae didn't take Mi Soo (her rival) away, but Kang Jae replies tat Mi Soo waited for him for 5 years, and had a hard time. Although he really loves Mi Soo a lot, but it's time to give up. Bok Hee admires his courage. Kang Jae wants to start a new life again, and encourages her to do so too. He invites her to New York, to discover a new him in the future.

Gi Dong studies very hard these days. Bok Hee looks for him, but says that she won't torture him anymore. She tells him that she wanted him as a brother to look after her, but it looks like Mi Soo changed him a lot, and make him a better person.

Kang Jae, prepares to leave for New York, but smiles when he leaves.
He tells himself, love cannot be forced, and now he knows what love is..
Bok Hee, also tells herself that she now knows that Gi Dong was feeling sorry for her, that's why he stayed with her, but she's looking forward to finding a new person.

Mi Soo rushes back home when she receives a call that her father is better. When she gets home, although her father did remember for a while who his family's members were, but he lapse back to his dementia self. Mi Soo cries over the lost chance of talking to him.

Il Ho (ex-gangster) meets Gi Dong at his workplace. Gi Dong tells him that he was so worried about him. Gi Dong confides that he wants to start a new company, J Construction (Mi Soo's father's old company's name), and would like Il Ho to join him. Il Ho is delighted, as he has nothing to do now.

Gi Dong looks for Su Dong and apologizes to him for leaving him, and that he'll not leave him alone anymore. Mi Soo finds Gi Dong outside her house, and complains to him that he came late. Gi Dong wants to build a house in3 years for Mi Soo, and asks her to let him stay with her. Mi Soo thanks him for coming back and they kissed.

Gi Dong shows Mi Soo a office named J Construction. Mi Soo is moved, and she is also introduced to Il Ho. But, she's still prejudiced against him (for being a gangster) and unworthy of being Eun Soo's boyfriend.

We now see Gi Dong and Mi Soo, happily seating together, while the other family members play cards together happily. Mi Soo smiles while helping her father dress up. Her older sister is happy with her marriage life. Eun Soo rushes out to meet Il Ho, and hugs him, while Mi Soo and Gi DOng looks on.

Bok Hee becomes a stronger person, and received a card from Kang Jae, who has found another girlfriend.

Mi Soo, receives a phone call from Gi Dong, who tells her to meet him at the bridge. when they meet, Gi Dong demands that Mi Soo, his wife piggyback him (just like what he did for her before). In the end, Gi Dong gives her a piggyback ride home.. and she tells him "saranghaeyo"

My thoughts:
I like bits of the show. My favorite part is Eun Soo and Il Ho, they are so cute together. However, Il Ho doesn't look like a gangster, he's looks too polite and well mannered.
As for the main couple, I think they act very naturally together. The actor who acts as Gi Dong is very good, I wouldn't mind watching another drama with him in it. The annoying part of this drama is that they dragged the 4 angle love a bit too much. Goodness, till the 19th episode, they havent cleared the whole problem. And there's Mi Soo, who shouts a lot...

I feel quite bad for Bok Hee, because Gi Dong did lie to her, and was unfaithful. However, she was also too whiny, i was hoping she could just leave him and then carry on with life, which she did of course, 20 hours/episodes later!!
Now, the true victim in this series, is Kang Jae. First, he was treated badly by Mi Soo's father, then met with a serious accident, which gave him serious health problems, and then wronged by Mi Soo, who he really loved, and work hard for. He cries too much in this series too, and like Bok Hee, deserves a better girlfriend!!

and the best actor award goes to SU DONG!! HE's awesome in his role as a retarded person. Very Real!!

ToGetHer/ Ai Jiu Zhai Yi Qi Ending

This is the GTV ending, i was quite disappointed with the CTV editing in the first few episodes, and switch to watching the GTV version. I'm happy to report that it makes more sense and has nicer moments. The GTV ending was a 2 hour one, and would be maybe 10 pages long, if i do it sentence by sentence accurately. So, will write about the important parts for the first hour, and will do a detailed one for last hour of the episode.

So far, we have seen that Mo Mo has finally accepted Mars feelings, and come to a realization that she really loves Mars. It's really sweet to see Mars treading carefully to persuade her to accept him, and also reasuuring her that her biggest fear of being alone will never reoccur anymore, that's because he will always be there. When it seems that they are finally happy together, Mars loses his mother who was in hospital, which comes as a shock to him. He disappears, and ends up with Mo Mo. He then tearfully reminices about the memories of his mother, but starts creating memories with Mo Mo instead. Their relationship gets deeper, and they appreciate each other even more. However, Mo Mo sister, divulges the secret that Mars in in her house, and therefore the press goes wild with the report. Tony gets really mad, as he insists that this will waste Mars efforts of the past year. He suggests twisting the situation with a press conference, and announcing that Mo Mo is Yi Zhi (manager) 's girlfriend. At that, Mars marches off angrily. Later, he tells Mo Mo the situation angrily, but Mo Mo asks him to understand them. Mars then tell Mo Mo not to give up whatever happens.

Jia Sen gets ready to confess to Mo Mo as its going to be Valentine's Day, and does it the night before. Mo Mo is a bit excited (in her own subdued way) because Mars has promised that this day will make her the happiest person. Mars has also asks her to meet her at Mo Tian Lun (taiwanese london eye). Mars meanwhile is also facing pressure from press and also fans on internet. He shrugs it off meanwhile and puts in all effort to buy Mo Mo a necklace "casaba star" from the comic that Mo Mo likes. Suddenly, he gets knocked down by a car.

Mo Mo sister rushes to get Mo Mo and goes straight to the hospital. The press swarm in on Mo Mo, and with her classmates leading on, all blame Mo Mo as the cause. Tony too is unhappy that Mo Mo has turned up, but Yi Zhi pleads on behalf of her. Mars is really happy to see her, and hands her the present.

Apparently the hit and run driver is a crazy fan who's angry that Mars has a new girlfriend (Mo Mo) instead of his duet partner. Tony hears that Mars has to have physiotheraphy for 6 months, and he's upset cause Mars has to withdraw from his drama and concerts. Mo Mo visits Mars, but Tony says that Mars' injury has incurred losses. He asks her to think whether they can sacrifice for their relationship. He emphasises that they are from different worlds, and that no one will give their blessing to them. It will be too difficult for them. Mo Mo thinks about this very deeply.

Mars wonders why Mo Mo doesn't visit him anymore. He finds out from Yi Zhi about Tony's warnings. He gets Yi Zhi to get Mo Mo to come to the hospital. At first, he says grumpily why she doesn't even pick up her phone. Then, he tells her they will still be happy even though all odds are against them. Tony walks in just at the moment. (Tony has perfect timing!! )

Mars then tells Tony not to cancel the concert, as it's very important to him. (4 months) Mars say that he'll finish physio and get back on his feet. Tony doesn't believe it, but Mo Mo reassures him too. Yi Zhi too cannot believe his ears as the doctor says at least 6 months is needed, but Mars smiles at Mo Mo and says :" we can do it" and Mo Mo grasps his hand.... awwww..........

Mo Mo is worried about the fans reaction to them, but Mo Mo concludes that Mars may not need her, but Zhuang Jun Nan (mars real name) needs her. Mars works hard, but is very anxious to get well. He gets frustrated after a while, but then Mo Mo appears to accompany him. She reassures him that she'll never be disappointed in him.

As days go by, Mars' condition improves. Mars is a bit worried that Mo Mo is tired and bored as she accompanies him everyday. But Mo Mo tells him that she wants to be with him.

Jia Sen mother calls to meet up with her and asks if she's going to england with Jia Sen. Mo Mo tells her no, and Jia Sen throws a tantrum. When Mo mo explains that she has to take care of a very important friend, Jia Sen throws her out of the room.

Mo Mo tries to explain to Jia Sen at school, but Jia Sen is really angry. He shouts at her and asks: "why do you like the bad guy?" "I can't like you, i hate you"

Back in his room, Jia Sen throws all his stuff on the ground angrily.
A knock on Mars room is heard. Jia Sen visits Mars. Jia Sen then asks: "do you really like Mo Mo?, you really like her right?"
Mars: "i really love her"
Jia Sen: "will you protect her?"
Mars: "yes, forever"
Jia Sen: "Good.... (walks away) I'll always hate you coz' I will always like Mo Mo"

Next morning, Jia Sen walks to school with Mo Mo, just like old times. He keeps quiet till the end, he tells Mo Mo that he'll not hate her. Mo Mo assures him that they'll always be good friends. Jia Sen asks if it's possible that they are friends if she likes Mars. But, Jia Sen says that he'll always like Mo Mo.

Yi Zhi brings Mo Mo to the seaside, and they watch Mars push away his crutches, and walks toward them. Mo Mo gasps and runs toward him to hug him.
Mars tells Tony that he'll be ready for the concert, which will be in 1 month.
Mo Mo comes in and Tony asks Yi Zhi to leave with him, and not disturb them.
Mo Mo then tells Mars that Jia Sen will always be her friend forever. Mars' face changes at frist and then he says, oh, that Jia Sen will always be his friend too!

Mars practices dance steps for his concert and Mo Mo walks in to see him. He's delighted, but is asked to concentrate :)

Mo Mo makes a special drink and takes it to Mars. But, Mars is busy practicing, and has photo shoots one after another. At the end of the day, she takes the drink back and pours it into the sink, thinking that the time to accompany Zhuang Jun Nan is over. And whether with her around, it will create more problems for Mars.

The day of the mini concert arrives. Mo Mo takes a bunch of flowers to see Mars, and wishes him all the best. She also says in a very quiet way that he looks good, and helps him to calm down by touching his face, she thinks aloud. "I really really love him, i wish that he'll never be alone, even if i can't be with him in the future" And, she kisses him.
He's surprised but even more surprised that she's crying. Mars then tells her that he'll look for her no matter where she's in the crowd.

The concert starts off with a bang, and the crowd loves it. Before he begins with the second song, he tells the crowd that there's someone who was with him while he went through hard times. He has a special song for this person, and shouts out the name. But, Mo Mo is not in her seat!!
Mars walks to a door and leads Mo Mo out, and sings to her.

In the end, when he concludes that the song is called :"Mo Mo", and the composer is him. And they hug, while everybody looks on approvingly.

(Mo Mo's thoughts)"i'm so happy, i found my prince"

Mo Mo and Mars walks into Mo Mo house hand in hand. Mars remarks that everything looks the same, even his room. At this Mo Mo reads him the house rules (very cute) including:

Prohibited to bring opposite sex into the house. (which mars says that doesn't include you, right?)
At the same time, Mo Mo's sister rushes in to announce there's a crowd outside.
They look out, and it's a crowd for Mo Mo!!

My thoughts: Wow, i thought it was boring at first but by the 2nd episode, i was hooked on it. Jiro really acted really well in this, and i don't really understand why the series didn't do well in taiwan. The script was well written, executed very well, and beautifully. The only flaw was there were a few parts that could be a bit faster, but the cute moments make it a must watch drama. Oh, and it was a perfect ENDING!!

However, grandpa says that he has a condition and he’ll approve the marriage. He tells SH to give up HAD.

SH is troubled and grandpa ridicules that she can’t married someone inferior to her. DG asks grandpa to stop and takes SH out of the room.

In the car, SH is worried that the clan elders will be mad, and drive her out. SH says she’ll make her way back to HAD, and then she realises that there is a way to get grandpa to approve. She goes to the factory and teaches DG the secret of making mandu the HAD way. Up to now, DG and factory cant find a way to make the exact mandu that his grandfather wants. SH finds the problem was with the dumpling skin.

DG is pleased that they have found the problem. SH says tto DG that she has thought about the situation before, if she would give up HAD for the man she loves. DG however says that she musn’t have to give it up, he’ll not want SH to be in a difficult position. And asks her to trust him.
DG goes to grandpa with the mandu, Grandpa is shock that this time they succeeded, but he still insists that SJ still abides by his wishes. DG promises grandpa that he’ll do anything, but asks grandpa not to take away HAD. Grandpa says it’s for DG good, as he needs someone to be a stable inner support at home, rather than make him run back and forth. DG tells grandpa to give the company to Chan min. Grandpa is furious that he gives up the company for a woman, and then says that it’s impossible for them to get married. DG decides to leave home, and goes to HAD to look for SH. DG tells SH that the mandus made grandpa very happy, but didn’t tell her that grandpa hasn’t consented.

SH doesn’t want them to have a bad start, she would rather give up HAD. DG firmly says no, as she has always protected it. SH feels that although she gives up HAD, doesn’t mean that she gives up her family. HAD is a precious place to her, but she wants to live happily with ther person she loves. “go and don’t come back till you get grandpa’s permission” SH says and leave.

Hal Mae hears the whole account and is quite furious that President makes things hard. She also hears SH crying in the middle of the night. Hal Mae leaves for Seoul and goes and scold the President.

Captain Sakurada and Mikami-sang(teacher) end up together in a bowling alley. Captain Sakurada asks her to bet that if he gets strike, that she has to marry him. She agrees, but the result was all pins fell but 1.
Yoko and Shota (the engineer) tell each other that they admired each other. They were about to go for Ramen, when Yayoi (Yoko's good friend) confesses that she likes Shota. Yoko overhears it, and walks away. Although Yoko is glad that her friend has finally gain the courage to tell Shota, she realises that she also has feelings for him.

On to the last episode..

Yoko wakes up, and realises that it's the last day for the trainees . As she rushes off to school, Shota comes up to her and asks her why she didn't turn up for ramen. She mutters some excuse and says that she is in a rush. Shota offers to ride together on his bike, but she takes over the bike and rides off as Shota looks at her, puzzled.

When she arrives at the school, Yayoi greets her very loudly and enthusaistically. Yoko remarks that she's a little over the top, and the other colleagues reply that something good must have happen, probably love.

Mikami-san appears, as she's assigned as the instructor onboard.Yoko and Yayoi get cold feet. and Yoko feels that Mikami will be watching her closely on this last day. The flight attendants starts welcoming the guests onboard, but notice a weird looking man, with afro hair. He seems to be looking around all the time. Yoko feels that he's very suspicious, but Mikami tells her to act calmly. While the flight attendants serve food and drinks, the weird guy looks at different air hostess and mumbles "Miss May" "Miss April".

Yoko confronts the weird man, and realises that he is Yayoi's father in disguise. He doesn't want his daughter to know he's onboard, so Yayoi doesn't tell the rest his identity, but instead tells him to be lowkey. Later, Yayoi's father gets into an argument with another passenger, and creates a scene. Yayoi recognises him when his wig was pulled off and runs away embarassingly.

Shota gets a visitor, Tsutsumi (pilot trainee, who once was very proud) and they become good friends.

Back to the airplane, Yoko finds out that someone has fainted in the bathroom. She freezes for a while. She recovers, and gets Yayoi to make a distress call. Yoko discovers that the passenger shows no breathing and no response, and starts chest compression. The chief cabin attendant announces that they need help, but there are no doctors/nurses on board. They use the AED machine to try to revive the patient (the trainees in earlier episodes have always prepared for this emergency), but fail in the first attempt. The other passengers look on, while they try again. After attempting again, the patient recovers, and slowly revives. The passengers then claps in approval.

Back on land, all the trainees assemble at the cafeteria. Everybody is quite excited to move on to official cabin attendant status. But, Yoko is unsure if she can carry forward, as she was terrified when she had to administer first aid on the passenger. Her classmates also starts to feel unsure and terrified. Realizing she made everybody gloomy, she tries to cheer everybody up. Yayoi, however, walks out of the room.

Yoko looks for Yayoi, asks if she's alright. Yayoi replies that she got dumped by Shota. Yayoi starts crying.(flashback: Shota: I'm sorry) .After a while, Yayoi stops crying. and starts complaining about her father embarassing her.

When Yayoi reaches home, she questions her father why he went onboard. Her father says that it seems like yesterday she was still a kid. Yayoi is pleased as she senses that her father is proud of her,

All the trainees are back in the classroom, and Yoko bursts into the room, late as usual. Mikami walks in with chief Dazai with the results. Chief Dazai announces "All of you passed" And the classroom goes wild!!! Later, one by one they receive their diploma and remove their trainees badges. Each trainee thanks their teacher Mikami, and recall their lessons. Mikami sees all the badges, and feels so proud and happy.

Mikami later sees Yoko around the cabin set where they practiced. Yoko comments that if an emergency happens again, she'll be alone to handle it. Mikami tells her that she'll never be alone, as she has colleagues that will help her. Mikami also says that she actually like the proud and brazen girl before, and asks her not to forget the good qualities.

Yoko meets Shota at the basketball court, and tells him that she strives to be the world's best cabin attendant. Shota teases her. She tells him if something happens in years to come, she ask him to back her up. He nods to say yes.

At the graduation party, captain sakurada asks mikami for one more try at bowling. Mikami smiles and approves.
And suddenly all the trainees disappear. Yoko appears and announces they want to go away with a bang. She reveals a band with all the trainees in it, and they play away. Mikami shakes her head "I can't believe it". But everyone starts dancing away..

Last part: Someone with messy appearance runs past Yoko asking where the training centre is and that she's late. This reminds her of her first day as a trainee.. and in the end she says :" Gabare-yo!! "

E: Funny ending.

My thoughts: I really like this series as it gives so much insight on the aviation industry. I enjoy the cabin attendants training, and their interaction with the pilots, and the engineers. It's so cool, that when i first watch this drama, i wanted to sneak into the airport and see it for myself. Very enjoyable and it had so many funny and interesting characters to keep you entertain for all the episodes!! The only setback i thought was that Shota was quite sedate in his acting, and a little wooden..

Kdrama : Boys Before Flowers/ Kgotboda Namja Ending

Wow..this series has really come to an end. I think I have never seen such a huge following for any other dramas in these few years. But, it does benefit from the past versions, as they had already establish a huge fan base.

The last 2 episodes of this version however, was really jam packed with storylines. So far, it has been revealed that Jun Pyo's mother has had her invalid husband (bedridden, unconscious) hidden even from her children, thus rendering her a wicked mother. Ji Hoo also confessed his love to Jan Di, and even giving her the heirloom, a ring. Jan Di however, rejected him, stating that she still loves Jun Pyo. And then, Jun Pyo saves Ji Hoo from a speeding car (a lunatic plotting revenge against Shinhwa group, who mistook Ji Hoo as the heir). At the hospital, where Jun Pyo receovers, but has selective amnesia, and can't remember Jan Di. Meanwhile, Jun Pyo befriends another patient, Jang Yu Mi, and mistakes her for the girl he has forgotten.

We have also a bit of Ga Eul-Yi Jung story, whereby Yi Jung wanted to tell her something, but she goes ahead saying that she understands his feelings, and will not look for him anymore.

Ok, here is the ending, the last episode,

It starts off with Jan Di delivering a lunch box to Goo Jun Pyo while he is sleeping. She stares at him and then says " Goo Jun Pyo will remember Jan Di" as if saying a spell. After she leaves, Yu Mi comes in to see Jun Pyo. When she opens the lunch box, Jun Pyo tries the egg roll, and asks if she was the one who prepared it. She mumbles a yes, and say that she will make it again. Then, Jun Pyo concludes that she's the one that he has forgotten, the very important person.

At the restaurant, Yi Jung and Woo Bin delivers the news that Jun Pyo is discharged. Jan Di rushes off to see Jun Pyo. And Woo Bin leaves. But, Yi Jung stays back, saying that he has something to say to Ga Eul.

Yi Jung and Ga Eul talks in front of a furnace. Yi Jung says that he will start with the bad news first, as usual. He's going to leave the country, to sweden, for 4-5 years. Ga Eul replies that he will come back as an amazing potter, so it's good news. But, what's the good news then? Yi Jung says that when he returns, the first person he will look for is Ga Eul, that is if she hasn't found her soulmate yet. He looks a bit embarassed, but Ga Eul is smiling.

Jan Di bursts into Jun Pyo room, but catches sight of Jun Puo and Yu Mi. Jun Pyo remarks that Ji Hoo isn't here, and does Ji Hoo know that she's visiting. Jan Di gets angry, but Yu Mi invites her to have tea with them. When Jan Di sees them showing affection to each other, she gets angry and leaves. This time Jun Pyo asks her not to come back. Yu Mi then follows Jan Di out, and advises not to come back for the time being, and she'll help Jun Pyo remember Jan Di. Jan Di then overhears Jun Pyo asking Yu Mi to make the lunch box again.

She meets Ji Hoo on the way out of the house, but he doesn't want her to give up. So, he drags her to see Jun Pyo again, but they see Yu Mi leaning on Jun Pyo asleep.
Jan Di leaves the room, and when Ji Hoo catches up with her, Jan Di says that it's all over. Ji Hoo comforts her, and hugs her.

Yu Mi brings an exact copy of the lunch box, but after one taste, Jun Pyo says that this isn't the taste that he remembers. Yu Mi says she'll make it again. Jun Pyo then remarks that the girl (Jan Di ) bothers him, when she gave him a look, he feels uneasy. Yu Mi is upset and complaints that all Jun Pyo friends reject her, but she stays on for Jun Pyo sake, and cries. Jun Pyo feels bad.

Next, F3 meets Jan Di and shows an invitation of Jun Pyo and Yu Mi to a poolside party.
All of them are there at the party. Yu Mi then reports to Jan Di that Jun Pyo doesn't remember her and that she's sorry to her, as she has fallen in love with Jun Pyo, and he feels the same way. Yu Mi also says that she and him has an important announcement to make.

Yu Mi announces with Jun Pyo by her side, that both of them will study abroad the next month. F3 walks away, Ji Hoo takes Jan Di away, and leaves her by the poolside to get her a drink.
Jun Pyo walks by, and Jan Di asks if he remembers the necklace he gave her. No, he says. Jan Di asks him, if he can swim. Jun Pyo replies, no, he's terrified of the water. Jan Di then informs him, that he learnt how to swim because of his girlfriend, and continue describing him.
Then, she walks backwards, and falls backward into the water. She sinks, and stays under the water, while everyone runs towards Jun Pyo. Ji Hoo stops everyone from taking action and waits for Jun Pyo as he starts having flashbacks.
"Jan Di" he shouts, and jumps into the water to save her. She still doesn't gain consciousness and he gives her mouth to mouth. She opens her eyes, and asks if he remembers.
JP: " I'll kill you, if you scare me again" and later hugs her while Jan Di smiles.
Ji Hoo looks on blankly, and Yu MI leaves.

One night, Jun Pyo asks her to come out, and they talk about her going to medical school. Then, Jun Pyo tells her something, but Jan Di can't hear it because a motorbike passes by.

At the high school graduation, F3 waits for Jan Di. She arrives later and F3 request to dance with her. After that, f3 wonder where Jun Pyo is. Jan Di remembers that Jun Pyo said something before, and she guess that he'll be at Namsan Tower (just like their first date). She runs over there, and Jun Pyo remarks that she's late again.

He claps. and the tower lights up, and the whole area has a spectacular light display. Next, he drags her to the coffee machine, and buys her coffee (exactly like the first date) He then informs her that he has booked the whole place, and wants to show her the words he crave in one of the carriages. 'First Night together- Jun Pyo loves Jan Di' and says that she can't get married now. She only can get married to him.

Jun Pyo then asks Jan Di to marry him, because he has to go to America. He wants to try his hardest and save the company his way. He'll be there for 4 years.
JP: Come with me.
JD: I can't. I want to try my hardest to do what i want and acheive my hopes here.
So, go and come back. If you come back after 4 years and still are a cool guy, I'll think
about it again.

Jun Pyo accepts it, and says that if he loses her, he'll regret it. The carriage starts to move, and they kiss.

4 years later, Jun Pyo gets interviewed on tv, as he has been featured in 3 international magazines as a successful director. His Dad and Mum watches him in front of the TV, and his mother has a smile of approval. After a question on his personal life, he agrees that there's someone special in his life. His Sister watches him on tv too, from the managing director's seat (her mum's seat)

(I love this part)
Yi Jung emerges from the airport, and goes straight to a kids centre. He looks in and sees Ga Eul is surrounded by little kids, and she happily teaching kids to shape clay. He smiles at her, and says"you'll still using too much strength"
Kid 1: who are you? Are you our teacher's boyfriend?
Kid 2: Uncle, did you come from overseas?
YJ: Oh, how did you know?
Kid 2: From Sweden?
My teacher says that her boyfriends is in sweden.
GE: Oh, you can't tell him... and she smiles embarassingly and Yi Jung gives her a meaningful look.

Jan Di and Ji Hoo volunteers at a makeshift hospital. And later she talks to Ji Hoo. She says that Ji Hoo is already in the graduating class, and that she has tried 3 times, but still hasn't pass. Ji Hoo says that he can redo it. But, Jan Di replies that the reason he studied to be a doctor to take over grandpa's clinic. Ji Hoo remarks that that's not the only reason.

Later, a helicopter flies by, and Jun Pyo's voice is heard asking Jan Di to go to the beachside.
Jun Pyo tells Jan Di that he misses her and he's back to take care of her. Jan Di laughs and say that she promised to reconsider years ago, and not for him to take care of her.
Jun Pyo then kneels down, and shows her the rings, and asks Jan Di to marry him.
"I object to that" F3 appears and announces that.
F3 walks toward Jun Pyo and Jan Di, and all of them stand in a line, staring out at the sea, smiling.

R: Happy Ending

A little of what i think: Although I enjoy this drama a lot, I think they dragged the triangle love a bit too long. i was surprised i rooted for Ji Hoo and Jandi in this version, as opposed to Jun Pyo- Jan Di in other versions. I think it's because though I know that Jun Pyo really did like Jan Di from his heart, I didn't see that he supported her through bad times. Ji Hoo was always there.. and though he's quite cold at times (to other people), but he would always back Jan Di up. AND, Jan Di seems to understand him too.
The best part of this whole series is definitely Yi Jung and Ga Eul, they have both grown a lot in characters and i just like how they ended with both of them giving each other a chance.

Star's Lover ending..

Star's Lover is actually quite a simple story, it's whether a star, celebrity can ever date a commoner. What i appreciate about it is that it is quite realistic in portraying what will happen if this situation ever arises...the public scrutiny into one's life is scary, and an over controlling manager is even scarier. I wonder whether Choi Ji Woo was inspired by her character Lee Mari to be honest with her relationship as she reveal that she was dating someone after this drama ended. hmm..

Anyway, Star's Lover ended at episode 19 intensely. With Ma Ri and Chul Soo together again, and evidence against him presented to him, President Seo goes beserk. He blames the downfall of Ma Ri on Chul Soo, and claims whatever he did (including threatening Ma Ri's first love) is all for Ma Ri's goo. He tries to attack Chul Soo, but Ma Ri protects him. Then, he's escorted out of the building, not before he announces that this isnt the end for him. (goodness, he just wants more screen time!! :0)

Ma Ri is in shock, Chul Soo comforts her and says he'll always be with her.
Elsewhere, Jang Soo (Ma Ri's former assistant turned actor) finds out thatYae Rin(President seo's sister) and President Seo are quitting. Jang Soo is upset because he won't get to see Yae Rin anymore.

Ma Ri tells Woo Jin that she won't seek compensation from President Seo. And Woo Jin thinks about how they met and how he liked her because she's so strong now.

That night, Eun Yong (Chul Soo's ex) tells Chul Soo she actually has decided to give up on him, but that her heart is still aching. Chul Soo thanks her for protecting and helping him all the way.

Jang Soo has a scene with Ma Ri, it's a kissing scene. He's very nervous, and even more so when the director says that the scene is now changed from kiss on forehead to lips. So, when they act together, Jang Soo faints! And then, sheepishly ask to act again.

Ma Ri tells Chul Soo that she wants to go to America to act in a few movies. So, she asked if Chul Soo wants to get married. (she mentioned it earlier, and he said he never thought about it, and he has to think about it) She'll be there for a year. But, Chul Soo says the discussion was over, and that he'll think about it. Later Ma Ri brings it out to the family, and Chul Soo gets angry. They part unhappily, because Ma Ri is upset that Chul Soo doesn't want to get married. She's prepared to give up the movie but Chul Soo tells Ma Ri to do it. They decide to give some time to each other to think about it. Ma Ri avoids Chul Soo for a while before he decides.

At the same time, Jang Soo goes to tell President Seo that he likes Yae Rin. Then, he confesses his love in front of everybody, and asks Yae Rin to marry him

Chul Soo meets up with Eun Yong in the coffee shop accidentally. Chul Soo asks if he gave her a hard time before. And Eun Yong says yes, because Chul Soo didn't believe in her, and that he thought that she would hurt him. Eun Yong also says that maybe that's why Ma Ri is also having a hard time. When parting ways, Eun Yong says that she will find someone less tiring, and that Chul Soo should call Lee Ma Ri. Eun Yong then meets someone on the way that she knows, (Lee Dong Gun makes an appearance)

Chul Soo realizes that Ma Ri is the one, and runs to hug her. He then tells her that they'll go together to US. He can't bear to be without her. Then, they go to all the childhood places that Ma Ri can remember-the school, and the orphanage.

At the orphanage, they go to the grave of the caretaker. And Ma Ri says that she really likes Chul Soo, and Chul Soo says that they will live life together happily. Later, Chul Soo is given all of Mari's mother letters. He reads it.

President Seo walks into the restaurant, and sees Ma Ri, and walks out again. Ma Ri goes after him, and asks him if he's alright. He replies he has a small business and warns her that if they meet face to face it may not be nice. But, in the end, he takes off his scarf and puts it around her.

At Chul Soo's place, everybody gathers and have food and are really happy. While Chul Soo is upstairs, his mother pops in. He calls his mother, something he has never done before, and thanks her for taking care of Yuri. And they both have tears in their eyes.

Chul Soo gives a necklace to Ma Ri, and tells her there is one more thing he has to tell her. He hands her a letter which is from her mother. And she reads it in disbelief. Chul Soo says that he made a promise to her grandmother, and he wants to marry Ma Ri. Ma Ri answers yes. Then, the letter contents are revealed, Ma Ri's name is Young Hee (that's the childhood friend that Chul Soo had when he was young.They were playmates.)

Next, we see Chul Soo and Ma Ri hand in hand at the airport, leaving the country .

5 years later, we see Chul Soo and Ma Ri having food together at the table. He hands her some food, and she refuses. But, he does it again, and then they smile. Next, a little girl's voice "O-ma"

They sit by the lakeside watching their little girl play. And flashbacks about how they met..
Then, they ask each other what they are reading. He reads his latest book, and she reads the script. He says that her script is just ok, it's not that interesting, characters are not properly developed. He asks her not to do the movie. But, she says it's because it has kiss scenes in it.
They then see a grandfather and grandmother sitting together. And turn to each other and say "I love you". Then, together they walked off happily with their child..

They kiss again (ISWAK 2) ending

My thoughts:
Normally sequels don't do well, but this one was quite good. Of course, there were moments you go "huh?" for eg the honeymoon situation with the other couple, but it was still bearable. The scenes between both of them are even more in this sequel and fans were no doubt pleased. Other than the abnormally long PG scenes from the director, i thought they film it quite properly and it had continuity. AND i love the ending!!

On to the ending..
The Last episode started off with Xiang Qin receiving a call from Ah Jin and Christine (they are so cute together) saying that they are really happy, and married. After that, Zhi Shu says to Xiang Qin that having her is the best thing in the world.
Then, they discovered that the whole family is down with flu. Zhi Shu tells Xiang Qin to bring medical instruments for him and she appears in the nurse uniform (cute!!)
Pediatrical unit needed an extra nurse, so Xiang Qin gets sent over there with all the kids. Zhi shu appears and of course Xiang Qin is so delighted.
Later, Xiang Qin goes to see a doctor for her checkup results. The doctor informs her that her retina cells are deterioting, and there's no cure. So, the worse case scenario is that she becomes blind.

Xiang Qin waits for Zhi Shu, buts a nurse asks Zhi Shu to attend to an emergency. Just as Zhi Shu leaves, Xiang Qin faints.
Back at the house, the whole family gathers at Xiang Qin's bedside, they say it's their fault that Xiang Qin is so tired and faints coz' she had to take care of them while they were sick. However, Zhi Shu suspects that Xiang Qin is pregnant.
Xiang Qin is still very worried about her eye condition and because it's an hereditary condition, worries that her baby will be affected. But, her family celebrates and is so happy that a grandchild is on the way.
Xiang Qin feels that her sight will get worse, and disappoints Zhi Shu.

Kdrama-Powerful Opponents ending

My take..

This is basically a love triangle story between Young Jin, Gwang Pil, Soo Ho.

On to the end..

I think the biggest concern is who will Young Jin end up with. At first, it felt like Gwang Pil, but throughout the series, it looked like Soo Ho. Then, we know that Gwang Pil did hug Young Jin...anyway, let's just get to the last episode.

Ok, it starts with Young Jin gets injured by the bad guy. Gwang Pil arrives and they report the incident to the superior. They try to think who the bad guy is. And after searching through files, and thinking very hard, Gwang Pil figures out that it's Nam Do Woo. Gwang Pil and Young Jin confronts Nam Do Woo, but he denies, and asks for evidence. After reporting back to their superior, the superior can't do anything since there is no evidence.

Gwang Pil during a chat later, asks if Young Jin is still his partner. And Young Jin smiles and reply in the positive. At the dance studio, members there throw him a party to cheer him on for the competition. Later, Soo Ho gives Young Jin her little notebook. and in the little note he says that he wants to be a better man, and "saranghae". Young Jin smiles after reading it.

Competiton day arrives. Nam Do Woo disguises himself and sneaks into competition area. But, he falls into the trap, and gets confronted by Young Jin and Gwang Pil. But, Young Jin gets shot by Nam Do Woo.

Son Ho finishes his performance, wile Gwang Pil chases Nam Do woo, and Young Jin is sent to the hospital. Bad Guy gets arrested in the end. And Soo Ho after hearing news of Young Jin's, rushes to the hospital. He sees Young Jin on the bed, with heartbeat sound in the background. It looks like she's dying....

(warning: nearly the end)

One year later...while Gwang Pil trains new students, he meets someone who looks and acts like Young Jin. Young Jin continues her bodyguard role, but meets someone like Gwang Pil too.

Soo Ho says to Kot Nim (little girl) that he is going to propose to someone in 3 years time.

Then, a flashback shows Young Jin, on a wheelchair, telling her father about her dream. And she says that she finally knows what happiness is as she can see her family, Gwang Pil and Soo Ho with her. THE END

Rating: Yikes...(O)

Debates have been going on on who is going to be with Young Jin, but the sad truth is that, no one ends up with her in the movie. So, it's up to everyone to write their own ending.

Kdrama -You Are My Destiny Ending

My thoughts:

This is such a up and down story and it has just gone for far too long. it's mainly a daughter in law story vs mother in law. The mother in law is just too much, and the main actress' character Sae Byuk is just too forgiving. I like Tae Poong, he's simple enough to understand hahaha..

Enough said, let's get to the ending..and this concentrates on Sae Byuk's story

If you have been following the story, Mi-ok, Sae Byuk's real mother tries her best to help her daughter be happy. She tries different ways, but she has leukemia. Sae's Byuk's mother in law (Min Jung) also finds out she has leukemia. (such a lot of people have leukemia in this series). Anyway, Sae Byuk decides to donate her bone marrow to her mother in law. And Mi-Ok health is deteriorating fast. But, grateful to Sae Byuk for saving her life, Min Jung goes to US and finds a relative who is a match for Mi-Ok, and takes her back to save Mi-Ok's life.

This is mostly Tae Poong hates Ho Se because Ho Se's family was rich and because Tae Poong's father was Ho Se's father's driver and his mother was the maid.

Kdrama-Gourmet- Sik Gaek 식객 Ending

My take on gourmet:

Very entertaining drama. I never knew that there were so many different types of fermented bean paste and how it was made, till i saw this drama!! :0) The characters were very likeable. Kim Rae Won did very well here, but i think Kwon Oh Joong, who plays the brother carried the role very well. I saw the making of Gourmet and saw that Kwon Oh Joong didn;t have any skills in cooking, but he looked very professional in the show. Kim Rae Won smiles a lot in the drama!!

Ok, on with the ending:
The ending that we are concerned about is whether Unm Ahm Jung falls into Matsumoto's (their opponent's) hand, and whether Sung Chan goes back to work, and also if he ends up with Jin Soo. So, i'll just concentrate on that the rest of the details, you'll have to watch the video.

Kdrama-Gourmet- Sik Gaek 식객

Episodes: 24

Synopsis (taken from

Talented chefs Bong Joo (Kwon Oh Joong) and Sung Chan (Kim Rae Won) were raised like brothers after Sung Chan was orphaned and taken in by Bong Joo's family.
