    When I was watching the scene during which Prof Cha asked his wife is she happy without him, and her heartwarming answer, I found myself wanting the writer to do a prequel drama of these characters' younger version, perhaps starting from their teenage years so we can see HSJ's past with his drunkard dad and her hatred to Ox-blood, the encounter with LSI and their friendship, how was KJS during teenage years under his mom's strict surveillance and control, how SooHan's mom (I don't remember her character's name..LOL) come to idolize HSJ, how did Prof Cha wooed NSH and get married, how did he do as a prosecutor and became Chief and had to leave his post to teach due to incident with his FIL. The whole drama maybe could end with the SKY Castle's prologue where YoungJae's mom commit suicide. Hahaha! Just a sudden idea popped out in my mind when I watched Prof Cha and his wife's scene I would definitely join the ride if the writer ever make their younger version's story. What did they experienced that made them the character we see in SKY Castle.

    While I like the ending in general, but if I am to point out particular part(s) that I don't like about is WooJoo's decision to drop out school while he only has few months left to graduate. However, I restraint myself from commenting because of the same thought that perhaps serving jail time does something to a person. So, I think positively from WooJoo's personality that he may not ask money from his parents except for the air tickets, and he works for his expenses oversea. Many travelers do that and there is this thing called couchsurfing too. I think he chose to find himself by travelling oversea because he want to escape the general Korean mind set about school and education, because anywhere he will be going to within the country, people will keep asking him why is he travelling instead of in school at his age. However, I still don't condone his act of dropping out school when there are only few months left. He can go after graduation though, even without being the top. I agree to the comment here that, if he does think about Hyena, he would have put an effort to fulfill Hyena wish to eliminate the elite extra-class in school. That way, it could have change a bit what the future hold for their juniors to compete in a fair environment, at least in school. Another is the part where CKJ/CSJ and the other classmates throwing the test papers and stormed out the classroom without showing at least last respect to their teacher. I know the teacher being a jerk making the students to chant about not going to SKY, they would not be treated as human. *Facepalm* So, except for SKY, those that going to other university that well-known for their field are not treated as human then?? KAIST? Ewha Uni? Hanyang Uni? Those people are not human then? But, CKJ and CSJ could have act better by at least bow to their teacher before walk out the classroom, that way, the others will follow to at least bow to their teachers instead of just making faces. The main reason I dislike these particular part is because it may be interpreted wrongly by the students who watched this drama. I afraid, while this drama shows the students disregard their teacher because of what he said, may snowballed into the society where the students started to just disregard and disrespect their teachers purely out of their discontent instead, even though the one who do wrong is them. This drama has been accused once instigating a murder of a health personnel. Showing such disrespectful act in such detailed scene may inspire the students to do the same, as they would only remember that particular throwing papers act without acknowledging the fact that the teacher did say something ridiculous in the first place that drive CKJ to his fury. I remember reading someone here said that he/she want to turn off the tv when they show the paper-throwing scene. Any parents would have feel the same way, I think. The execution was poorly done in my opinion. They could at least show the students respectfully decline to continue the class and walk out in a more decent manner. Maybe when the teacher chasing them, CKJ could have turn to him and said something like "sorry teacher, today we will just escape class to be with our friend who needed us at his side" and bow before walking away. haha! Well, this is just my opinion. I hope it would not come to the downside since this drama had such high rating, thus, many people would be imprinted with the shocking scenes from the finale under different perceptions and impressions . However, I do want to applause the writer for presenting such a refreshing work to the audience, trying to breakthrough the mainstream genre and dare to discuss the society's problem with such liberated writing, elevating the quality of Kdrama for long-time fan such as myself.

    I just finished the raw final episode. I found 3 metaphoric scenes that the writer / director embedded in this finale that for me are very meaningful (maybe just me). First one is the long focus to white chrysanthemum. I found out that in flower's language, that flower symbolizes devoted love. It represents happiness, longevity and joy, which is highly emphasized theme in this finale. Even the word "happy / happiness" is repeated many times in the dialogues. It marks the turning point in each of the family's life and perspectives..especially the Kangs who embark on their new journey to attain happiness rather than status or glory. Second is the book's title. "Annyeong, SKY castle" seems like a goodbye from everyone who involved in the drama to viewers, and to the drama itself. I found that is kinda witty of the writer to give the book's title like that. Haha! I think in way, the writer maybe had accidentally encountered an unpopular book that fictioning about the real event occurred. Or, she might be the person who really wrote the unpopular book (i.e., she was Lim Soo Im). I never searched the writer's background, but either way, salute to the writer-nim! You jjang! Third is the final scene where i think many may misunderstood that KJY is back to ruin other's family life. It depends on one's interpretation. In my opinion, it's such a good metaphor that symbolizes there are other "KJY" out there doing the same context of despicable brainwashing to the students (i.e., brilliant "codi" that uses every means possible to get the student accepted to SKY), just like they shows that there is always another HSJ in the society especially among elites, who might succumb to their greed and eventually destroy their own children / family (the new person that moved into HSJ castle). Perhaps not everyone like the ending and each one is subject to their own opinion. For me, the finale episode is heartwarming and full of meaningful moral values..and it's realistic. Most importantly, they gave such a great portrayal that we all are just imperfect human being, we make mistakes and wrong choices, and that is why we are always have the chance to change or repent wherever we are until death knock on our door, be it freely in the outside world or in the prison.. Because not anyone can change even they serve many years in prison..not anyone do try to correct their wrongs even on death bed. In the end, it comes back to the person's will to change that make a different in the future, although they can't change the past. Anyway, the time I invested to watch this drama is all worth it. It was a great and enjoyable ride. I kinda feel relieved that the writer did not turn this drama into makjang with the daughter being switched as hypothesized by netizens. Phewwh! I must say.. Congatulations to the writer, all the actors and actresses as well as the production team! You guys rock! Jjang daebak~~!

    I sobbed hard when Lim Soo Im brings Kay to visit KJY Strangely, I can't bring myself to weep watching HSJ sobbing regretting her wrongdoings to Hyena. Hmmmm.. Especially the part when she shut her mouth tightly even though Hyena was dying, calling KJS "dad" and he refused to operate on her. But, in some ways, I do pity and empathize her character. I don't know, I think I empathize every character in this drama. Amazing drama indeed...the writing, acting, execution, the humor, cinematography, editing...etc etc.. thumbs up!

    One thing for sure, Lim Soo Im finished and published her book!

    Anyone have links for live stream that actually worked? I can't load a few of my usual streaming sites. Please pm me the link. Thanks in advance!
  8. Emmm... that is such an abrupt ending. Are they going to make Season 2 for this series? I am utterly disappointed.. no other word could describe my feeling better after watching the final episode... I even start to question myself, why did I even stay to the end...should have not cling on to that tiny hope... haaaa @sushilicious @mrsj3n See you two in other thread. Haha. This week, I am anticipating for Sky Castle finale.

    I did laugh, but not during the scene when Kay scoop the curry, but during the scene showing hands cutting vegetables, pouring cooking oil and simmering the curry... until they show the back of Coach Kim taking the pills from the cabinet - I died! I really thought it was some curry brand's commercial break!

    Yea, I didn't expect him to change his whole perspective overnight too. But, yeah, at least the final episode could show his willingness to give some freedom to his children to choose their path. Or at least show that Madam Cha not hanging up his call halfway anymore and he no more enforcing his patriarchal demeanor and could talk sensibly while trying to persuade them to come home. Haha! No, Hyena is not alive. It was a scene in the past (I think), probably through HSJ memory when Coach Kim cynically told HSJ off that she also want to kill Hyena. In my opinion, that epilogue might want to show that, in a way (probably that one time), HSJ did have motherly feeling to Hyena when she sees how vulnerable Hyena can be, dreaming and missing her deceased mother. Probably to redeem HSJ's character that she was not all wicked and vicious to Hyena, but circumstances have made her viewing Hyena as threat and made bad choices in the name of protecting her own blood. Btw, since SK lost to Qatar yesterday, does that mean we will have the final episode on Feb 1? Or is there any other scheduled match for SK on Feb 1?

    I think the peak rating could be during the scene between Coach Kim and Kay.

    I have been quietly lurking in this thread.... but now I need to share with everyone that..... I think I am going insane because I have to wait another week for final episode! JTBC seems to try to comfort the viewers by giving us episode 19 for 1 hour 25 minutes! But, I wonder what will be the conclusion for the Cha's family. Prof Cha looks like still not giving up his darn pyramid! (I thought he will just left the pyramid with ramyeon spread, instead he still pickup the wet-tissue and clean it reverently..duh! ).. even after CSJ/CKJ said straight to his face that they are happier without him! Will he be the most disappointing character of all (showing not a slightest change at all)? OR will he learn his lesson and change his perspective (at least, not imposing the idea about the pyramid hierarchy and that the twins must enter SNU anymore)? I am so mad I can't even wish for next week to come faster for the final episode because I have some works to be done that I want the time to pass slower

    Thought for final episode: Emmmmm... Emmmmmmmmmmmm..... EEmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... Thank God they managed to banish the demon to underworld. That's all. All the best to all actors and actresses in their future project.

    Hmmmm... I will watch tomorrow's ending without any expectation nor any theory. I will just watch it to know why the demon has been aiming Dr Ham. What Dr Ham has to do with that bloody-faced patient the demon been appear as. Yeah, seems so. I think his brain is busy scrutinizing the line between demon's game and reality, to the point he shuts his lips. Anyway, let's just sit back and enjoy the ending tomorrow. Haha.
