The very interesting character, and right hand man of the triad leader, Laughin, died because he was shot by Pak Kew, and later sacrificed himself to pave the way for Ah Man to continue his work.(wow what a shocker!!) . It was revealed he was an undercover agent for the police very gradually, and confirmed just before he was killed. And Sum Jie went missing after she was supposedly about to get married to Sai Hao. Ah Man’s cover as an undercover agent was blown when he rescued his police colleague in front of Sai Hao. Because of that, he had to prove it to Sai Hao that he was indeed a gangster, and not a police anymore by action.

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.
