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!!
