@NitaA  I think that SJ lives because  Gi-Tak never existed in the new timeline, so the stabbing never occurred. Remember SJ went to revenge Gi-Tak's murder, that is how he got killed, but since Gi-Tak was never there, he was never killed, so SJ is still alive in the new timeline.  SJ did die in the old timeline.

@Rayner Yeo

Thanks for your explanations! I really like your theory for the first point, that Gi Tak's non-existence enabled the existence of Hong Nan, and these two people are the same soul with different lives. This makes me feel a lot better than my previous thought that Gi Tak's soul and spirit itself was gone forever!

I think it was Cha Jae Gook that sabotaged Yi Yeon's career post-divorce in the original timeline. Their divorce was probably really bitter and messy in the original timeline because for the entirety of their relationship he was always extremely jealous/slightly paranoid about Yi Yeon's love for Gi Tak (he even tested the paternity of their son). Once Gi Tak is removed from their lives, they probably divorced on much more amicable terms in the new timeline.

I didn't even notice the plothole that Seung Jae was able to live but Na Suk Chul still died once Gi Tak's existence was erased. Maybe it's possible that death is a fated thing? Perhaps Na Suk Chul was meant to die at that moment no matter what so even when the timeline changed, he was still killed off by the "greater forces" and his soul was retrieved to the afterlife (probably hell). That's how I would try to explain away the plot hole, lol. 


@cloudydreams Nice to know that my theory could make you sleep better at night. 

On the supposed plothole I guess your explanation could fit in. This being a supernatural series rather than science fiction, "Heaven's will" is a legit excuse to explain away things.

I saw Gi Tak being in the epilogue as a flashback to end the show off with to connect the main characters together again. Of course from everyone's memories, he is gone, but the show was about him (and Young Soo) and the epilogue reinforced that.

I don't think there's 2 OYS in the new timeline, that would be too confusing and detract from the significance of her character. To explain away the difference, we can assume between going on her jog and then bumping into HJ, she got a haircut.

So the consensus is that Gi-Tak is really in the body of the real Hong Nan?  Does that mean he now likes men?  The theory about it being him does make sense since he stuck his butt out when he bumped into the real Lee Hae Joon and how he was messing with his panties because they were stuck in his butt. 


I know I sound like a wimp and mentioned this earlier but was I the only one that thought it was so sad when Da-hye hugged Young-Soo goodbye?  Why didn't she get a happy ending?  She struck out with Lee Hae Joon since he is likely to fall for the real Hong Nan. 


Don't know for sure if she likes men, but since she was born as a woman and lives her entire life as woman, she probably likes man, if she is not a lesbian. If she has feeling towards men, she would definitely not fight the feeling like Gi Tak did when she was about to kiss Young Soo during the scene outside hotel room, because she has no memory of being a Gi Tak, aside from some deja vu feeling.. Nevertheless it is heavily implied that there is a spark between her and the real Hae Joon. The image of the of them is even put aside each other at the end of that scene. That is not merely a hint but more of "on your face" kind of telling the audience that something is on between them. 


I share your feeling on the hug scene. We can clearly see that finally Young Soo has "let it go", when he didn't even turn his back. 

On why Da Hye didn't get happy ending, I don't think hers is not a happy ending. For her situation that could be considered happy ending. If you mean why she doesn't has new relationship, I don't think a new relationship is really necessary to constitute a happy ending. Also this is just a few months away from her being widowed. I don't think in real life there are many widows who would fall into new relationship that soon.

Hello everyone it's my first time on soompi and I am really glad that I did it with this drame bcuz it's totally worth it. I'm a huge fans of the drama I loved every bit of it until the end.. I meant almost until the end cuz I haven't seen the two last episode yet and I know that it doesn't make sense to come here knowing there would be spoilers but there's this song that I've been obsessed with and I really can't find it anywhere. It's the scene where honey lee is drawning and OYS saved her can one of you sweethearts tell me please the title of the song and/or the singer it would be lovely! That being said sorry for being long I'm going back to mayaland*peace*

@Odile Dibba 


Hello, fellow new member. I think as rookies we should help each other so will try to answer your question. 


I think the song you are looking for is X-Out by Ryu Ji Hyun...

Okay so I think I finally get it about Hong Nan at the end.  Gi-Tak's soul is in the body but his soul was rewritten and reborn into Hong Nan's body so he has no memory of being Gi-Tak.  However, I guess you can maybe make the argument that she would act like Gi-Tak if he had been born as a woman. 

And I definitely see what you mean about Da-hye being recently widowed and not wanting to get into a new relationship with a new man.  I think Youngsoo didn't turn his back when she hugged him because he knew she had figured it out and didn't want to cause any more pain and having to explain to her that he has to go back to Heaven.  He also had gotten closure and was happy that he found out that his wife really did love him even though she didn't initially love him when they first met when she was pregnant.  It was just sad that they couldn't be together in the end. 

I preferred the pairing of Da-hye and Lee Hae Joon/Youngsoo over Yi Yeon and Gi-Tak/Hong Nan.  Just my opinion.

Unlucky K-Dramas: It’s All About the Timing


Unlucky K-Dramas: It’s All About the Timing


International fans of K-dramas have an advantage and a disadvantage over fans in Korea. While international fans have to wait for a drama to be available after it aired in Korea, they have the luxury to watch many dramas at the same time. However, fans in Korea must choose, if faced with the choice of two good dramas airing at the same time-slot, which drama they will watch over the other. The drama they didn’t choose, no matter how good it is, is left bad ratings and little media coverage. Oh, those unfortunate dramas.
please coem back mister

Please Come Back, Mister,” which starred Rain, Lee Min Jung, and Oh Yeon Seo, is a recent example of a good drama that just had the worst of luck. It went directly against “Descendants of the Sun,” airing on Wednesday and Thursday at the same time and premiering and ending exactly on the same days.

While “Please Come Back, Mister” was Rain’s first drama in two years and Lee Min Jung’s return to the small screen after giving birth, it just couldn’t compete with the combined interest in “Descendants of the Sun,” which was Song Joong Ki’s first drama after his military service, famed writer Kim Eun Sook’s latest drama, and Song Hye Kyo’s first in three years.

“Descendants of the Sun” (hereafter “Descendants”) premiered with 14.3 percent and “Please Come Back, Mister” (hereafter “Mister”) started at 6.6. The gap only grew wider as the weeks went on, with “Descendants” ending at 38.8 percent and “Mister” at 2.6 percent.

Rain Prepares Meaningful Gifts for “Please Come Back, Mister” Staff


Rain Prepares Meaningful Gifts for “Please Come Back, Mister” Staff


Rain has prepared a special gift for the hardworking staff of his recently ended drama “Please Come Back, Mister.”

The actors and staff of “Please Come Back, Mister” gathered on April 14 at a restaurant for a wrap-up party of their drama. During the event, Rain handed out donation watches to everyone to thank them for their hard work.

30 percent of the profit of these watches go towards helping children in need. The staff were very touched by Rain’s unexpected and meaningful present.

please come back mister rain2

Rain Company stated, “Rain said during the wrap-up party, ‘I want to truly thank all the staff, director, writer, and fellow actors for their hard work during the past three months. This was a meaningful project for me’.”

Meanwhile, Rain will be holding his world tour concert in China on April 23.

*** I feel bad for CBA. Sigh.....the EP before the final had a higher rating than its finale. It really is such a shame that a quality drama such as "Come Back Ajusshi" gets so little recognition.  Poor Rain.  I care about the ratings - because for me, ratings bring along recognition, and recognition is directly associated with CF contracts. Advertisements are a rich source of income for many Korean celebrities. South Korea is certainly not alone in the extremes that it will go to for ratings. The rating contributes to the sponsor. That's the entertainment industry for you. The drama lost in terms of ratings and popularity/buzz from its competitors. ;)




Drama viewership ratings for the week of Apr. 11–Apr. 17, 2016



There were some scheduling changes this week that affected most (most being two out of three) of the Wednesday-Thursday airing shows, leaving Descended From the Sun to net its best numbers yet—fitting, of course, for the show’s grand finale.


It’s interesting to note that while both Goodbye Mr. Black and Come Back, Ajusshi aired double headers on Thursday, their second episodes—which aired after Descended’s startling 38.8% finish—netted them the same kind of numbers they would’ve gotten even with the juggernaut competitor. Ajusshi also finished its run at a meager 2.6%, which is an unfortunate figure under any circumstance.


(skipped unrelated.....)


Thursday, Apr. 14      
Descended From the Sun 16 KBS 38.8%
Goodbye Mr. Black 9 MBC 3.5%
Goodbye Mr. Black 10 MBC 3.8%
Come Back, Ajusshi 15 SBS 4.6%
Come Back, Ajusshi 16 SBS 2.6%

Please Come Back, Mister Recaps: Episode 16 FINALE (Time to come back, misters)




And the ending is here, Please Come Back, Mister is over, and I'm here to recap the final episode with you. If you haven't wat

We were left with Da-hye asking if Gi-tak is her brother and Suk-chul eavesdropping. Da-hye explains the little fragmented memory she has, and how she feels every time she hears that name. Once she saw that picture of them two she felt the puzzle was complete, except Hong-nan is the sister.

Our Hong-nan confesses she’s been living under her name. The explanation is that Gi-tak gave her that name (he really did) because he missed her that much. Han Hong-nan was her name, and the one using now was raised as the real one. Hong-nan asks her not to speak of those names, of the siblings while Da-hye cries because her brother died, however did he really die like people said? Hong-nan cuts Hae-joon’s answer and tells her that Gi-tak would want her to live happily. With that, she leaves and Suk-chul wets his lips in anticipation.


Hae-joon and Da-hye walk together as he explains that the one who found her brother was Ji-hoon, that was what he wanted to tell her that night at the restaurant… but he couldn’t tell her later that her brother had also died, not just her husband. He tells her that she shouldn’t feel worried or sorry, and that she deserves to be loved. She replies she does indeed has memories of being loved, so he shouldn’t worry.

She asks him who he really is, a kind lodger is his answer, someone who wants her happy.

In his office, Jae-gook is contemplating his title when Lee-yeon comes in, wondering if he would’ve been happier if he had met someone else. She is tired and pleads to finally end their relationship and live their separate ways. She’s taking Young-chan with her.

Hae-joon is in how own office when Manager Ma comes to bring him coffee and tell him he looks so handsome today. He really worships him, it’s cute. Hae-joon warns him about how he might change in the future, and asks for a hug. Manager Ma steps in and Hae-joon gives him a tight hug that he interprets as officially being one of Hae-joon’s men.


In broad daylight, Hong-nan, Gae-jil and Seung-jae are drinking… it’s her farewell because in the States, where she is supposed to leave to, she won’t be able to. Seung-jae asks her to wait, he’ll get Suk-chul but she tells him not to seek revenge and take care of Lee-yeon.

Talking about Lee-yeon, she’s preparing for a photoshoot when she receives a text from Jae-gil telling her that Hong-nan is leaving to the States. At that photoshoot, Hong-nan goes to watch her, mumbling how Lee-yeon will be okay, she’s sure of it. She watches her with everyone with fond eyes and leaves without meeting her.

At night, Seung-jae isn’t doing what he was told and he’s tracking Suk-chul, or someone who’ll lead him to suk-chul at least. He finally finds him but he looks away and in that moment the thug is gone, just to show up next from behind. Seung-jae asks him if he really killed Gi-tak, and the thug’s nonchalance pisses him off, but another guys comes in before Seung-jae can punch Suk-chul. The newcomer is told to kill Seung-jae and they stat fighting… until a horrid sound stops Seung-jae.


He was stabbed… he is stabbed again and let slide to the floor as Suk-chul tells him how he is planning to kill Hong-nan. No, my love is hurt, someone save him please!


Da-hye receives a call then, from Suk-chul pretending to be the owner of the building of Gi-tak’s place, asking her to come over to take some of his things. Aware of their connection, she agrees to go without a clue it’s a trap. That bastard, I want to kill him myself.

Da-hye tries calling Hong-nan, but she doesn’t want to pick up, saying she doesn’t have anything to say. Then Seung-jae calls her, telling her not to come. He’s bleeding bad, sweating, breathing hard and I’m screaming! My love, no. Why? My poor heart can’t take this.

Da-hye arrives at Gi-tak’s, Suk-chul shows up and continues the charade, but he calls Hae-joon to let him hear Da-hye is there, and that she is in danger. He admits running over him, and threatens him to bring the secret account unless he wants Da-hye to pay. He rushes there, as fast as he can. He also calls Hong-nan as he drives, to tell her about the situation. She tells him not to hand the account, it’ll be worse and to leave it in her hands, she’ll take care of it.

BBALLI BBALI! (hurry up)

Hong-nan is running again! There’s a cab passing by and she runs. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT WOMAN?! GET A BICYCLE AT LEAST!

Da-hye is watching the pictures of Gi-tak, recalling Hong-nan’s words and assurance he loved her and just wanted to protect her. She cries as she sees the pictures, Suk-chul just lets her do that.

Hong-nan is still running when she hears something. SEUNG-JAE SPITTING BLOOD! Save him, call an ambulance now. Please…

She freaks out, asking if it was Suk-chul, he seems to have trouble focusing on her, but says how he told her not to come, warns her to leave. She screams for help and luckily a lady passes by and she calls for an ambulance. Keep him awake, keep him alive, please! I beg of you.


Da-hye is finally leaving, but Suk-chul is showing his true colours now, stopping her from leaving, scaring her, cornering her with the look of a mad man. She calls in her mind for Young-soo when Hae-joon shows up, running to save her. He steps between Suk-chul and her, making sure she’s all right.

Suk-chul realises he didn’t bring the account, he isn’t happy.. He doesn’t care about anything else but the money. Hae-joon decides to fight him, murmuring how he died once and won’t do that again. Suk-chul punches him ruthlessly, but Hae-joon stands up over and over again, no matter how hard he is hit or thrown over.

When suk-chul gets impatient, Hae-joon says he has even less time and admits that he’s toughed up after being bossed around for so long. He still stands, and does his best to stop Suk-chul from touching Da-hye.

Lee-yeon is watching at the picture she took of the crew and notices Hong-nan was there, like in that picture with Gi-tak long ago. And now she’s the one running. They really don’t know the concept of cab, do they? She runs and recalls the many times Hong-nan saved her, the things she told her, what she wanted for her. She just keeps running.


Hae-joon is still being beaten up, Da-hye watching frustrated and she tires to attack Suk-chul, but fails. Before he can actually hurt her, Hong-nan shows up with the picture. Da-hye goes to Hae-joon, making sure he’s all right, he tells her not to cry.

Hong-nan throws the picture away and hits Suk-chul. Kicks, punches, he throws her over, she attacks back, with her fits of iron. She yells at him for killing all those people, SHE INCLUDES SEUNG-JAE! He screams back how Gi-tak followed him in the organisation and ruined his life… all the time.


She grabs his lighter and burns the picture, ending it once and for all. He freaks out and grabs her by the lapels for what she did. They fall over the rooftop, but she holds him and he holds on to her.

Hae-joon and Da-hye run to catch her, but she is saying her goodbyes, saying how she just hopes everyone she loves will be happy and calls Da-hye her sister, and asks him to take care of her, also referring to him as brother-in-law. When Da-hye calls her oppa (older brother, meaning Gi-tak), Hong-nan lets go and slowly, slips down until she is falling with Suk.chul, Hae-joon crying as he recalls all of his memories with Gi-tak.

She falls, while everyone screams.


Her voice narrates as flashbacks show, as we hear again when she told Hae-joon one of the good things they needed to learn in this experience, was him.

He cries, calling Gi-tak… and when they look down, Hong-nan disappears. Her body isn’t there anymore.

Lee-yeon arrives, finally, without taking a cab, screaming for Hong-nan, defeated. She turns around, and Hong-nan is standing there with a sad look, teary eyes. I get goosebumps. “This time, I wanted to say a proper goodbye before I left,” she says, and even if Lee-yeon doesn’t want her to go, there’s no other way. She tells the actress not to cry as she leans in and holds her face, kissing her as a tear streams down her face. Then it’s Gi-tak kissing Lee-yeon as flashbacks of their youth play, and the last time they saw each other.


When he pulls back, she can see him, Maya standing next to them. She asks him not to go, and he says he is not going anywhere, and he will always still by her side. However, he starts fading away, and so does Hong-nan with that sad smile. Lee-yeon keeps crying as Hong-nan fades away in sparkly dust. She cries and cries… And slowly, Gi-tak disappears from every picture, literally fading away. Everything that was his, his boxing globes, his chef name tag… everything just disappears, and with him, Hong-nan.

Lee-yeon suddenly stops crying, her tear comes back in her eye and she is fine, just confused to be there.

She forgot… Gi-tak was found out, so he’s erased.

Oh boy...

Hae-joon is talking with the detective, regarding Suk-chul’s death. When he hangs up, he goes to see Da-hye who is still dreaming of that last day with Gi-tak, when he taught her how to throw a punch.

Hae-joon is watching her with Maya, who tells him no one remembers Gi-tak… no one but him, and he will always remember him. From the picture of Da-hye and Gi-tak, he disappears and there’s a boy in the car, behind where Gi-tak was standing.


She wakes up, looking at him with relieved eyes. He asks her why she looks at him like that, and she says she’s just happy he’s there.

Then he is giving Han-na many gifts for her first times, like a first bra, a perfume for her coming of age… even a tiara for when she gets married. He’s giving her the things he won’t be able for those key moments in her life.

Being the beautiful girl she is, she tells him to get married, to practice with her today. So they go out of her room, humming to the typical song, walking together hand in hand, while Da-hye and Abeoji watch them with fond eyes, but his expression is both heartbroken and happy.

He recalls how Abeoji said you can’t force becoming a family, it happens naturally, and he remembers those moments with them, realising the truth of his words.

Then at night, Hae-joon goes to Abeoji’s room, taking a look at that old picture of them when he was young. In his head, Young-soo tells him he’s still handsome, and he won’t miss him but he has to stay and see Han-na get married, have a family and then they’ll see each other. He muses how he’s proud of having been his son, and he cries, holding his hand. But he puts it back in the futon and leaves the room.


He goes to the kitchen, to the grape sheet to fill almost all the grapes, only leaving the last one, the 30th, uncovered.

The next day, he opens a letter with a card that says the world is brighter because of him.

Flashback shows that Hong-nan changed the picture in the frame, letting him take care of the original with the secret account number. Under Hong-nan’s name, a good cause has been sponsored and that card is a thank you letter for that. Hae-joon pastes the last sticker there, as he whispers his goodbye.

Then he is leaving the house, but Da-hye stops him to ask him to have a meal before. She made curry, because when she got married that was the only thing she knew how to make and did that every day for Young-soo, yet he never complained. This is the first time she makes curry since he died.

They sit across each other, but she doesn’t say anything. He tells him that if they see each other again, to pretend not to know each other. He says he’ll treat her badly, he might make her cry so she can curse him out and walk away. She smiles and says she’ll do that.


He finally leaves the house, meeting Maya in the way. He mentions Gi-tak, saying how he hopes to share a drink with him in the train. It’s good he remembers him, and she asks her if it was worth it, coming back. He says it was, smiling. But his smile dies when he realises he forgot to say goodbye. He also admits he maybe hoped Da-hye'd realise it was him…

In the house, she’s looking at the plate with the carrots, just like Young-soo did every time he ate her curry. She stands up and runs after him, recalling the message in the card that came with the necklace, while having flashbacks of her times with Hae-joon.

She runs and catches up to him, giving him a back hug and saying he did well… just like she always did when he came back home. Both are crying, but Hae-joon doesn’t reply, he just takes her hands off of his waist and says his goodbye, without looking back, and walking away. Tears keep streaming down his face, same for her, who also whispers her goodbye.



She smiles through the tears and Young-soo walks away with Maya, saying this is enough.

Some time later, I guess, Lee-yeon is in an interview being asked if she ever had a special relationship. She feels like she was unconditionally loved by someone, and that helped her through bad times. Now, she’s at peace.

Then she is introduced to her new manager, Seung-jae! He survived and his hair is down and he looks so handsome in that leather jacket. Jae-gil is also there and it’s beautiful. They are destiny after all.


She is walking the bridge, calling Young-chan while Seung-jae walks behind, listening. He takes off his phone and looks at his background… A PICTURE OF MAYA AND A KID! Is he the kid? Was Maya his mother? OMO! No wonder she was so smitten with him. I want to cry again.

Running, the opposite direction is Hong-nan! But no, it’s not really her. She walks past Lee-yeon and none react. Then past Seung-jae and they don’t react… but he stops later, and turns around. He feels something!


The real Lee Hae-joon is back, the female employees are all over him, thanking him, loving him and he is surprised, but cold. They are confused, and Manager Ma reminds them that after the hit-and-run, he hurt his head so they should be understanding of his changes. Telepathic Secretary is there, remembering how he told her to distribute his shares within the company employees, which makes her smile proud of him.

In his office, he finds a letter form Young-soo, telling him he used his name for those two months that were like a dream to him, too. He ruined his plans, but he won’t apologise because in exchange, he gifted him with loyal employees who respect him.


Family meeting with Jae-gook and Chairman Cha. The older son offers his help managing the company, super nonchalant, and Hae-joon says he hated him to death, still does. Chairman cringes… but then Hae-joon calls Jae-gook hyung (older brother) and chairman abeoji (father), saying how he wanted to do that even once before he died.

Chairman moves the walnuts and Telepathic Secretary blows up, telling she’s done, she doesn’t know what he’s thinking and they should talk. Please talk! She storms out and I can’t stop laughing. This is epic.


Young-chan is playing ball, and his parents are talking like civilised people. He says as he is unemployed now, he should be a father. Well, it was about time. I’m glad for the kid.

Han-na and Ji-hoon are together, he tells her how much he liked Young-soo and what a great man he was. That's why he is happy they are so alike. She should be proud of her appa. She asks him if later he could teach her how to dance, and he agrees happily. Aw.

Da-hye runs into Hae-joon in the elevator, and he really doesn’t recognise her. He is eating seaweed. It became a habit, uh? She tells him she’ll file a claim for worker’s compensation. He doesn’t understand, and she just chuckles before exiting.


He’s walking and he runs into a gorgeous woman… the original body of Hong-nan. She got her hair cut, God she’s beautiful. She asks if they have met before, but he wouldn't know, he just arrived, like her. He laughs, and she tells him not to get the wrong idea. At his chuckling, she gets annoyed and walks away. He turns to watch her and she fixes her underwear like Hong-nan used to do. They walk away but stop at the same time, turning around and smiling at each other.


Back in time, to when the picture of the Han siblings was taken. I always wondered who took the pictures of the two, and it was Abeoji! The one inside the car was Young-soo. He is being scolded, while little Hong-nan watches him with dreamy eyes and a smile as he gets dragged away. Then Gi-tak takes her hand and also walks away.


And that was the first picture of them, Young-soo and Da-hye.

The K-drama ends with a quote from Hermann Hesse’s Knulp: “It was beautiful. Happiness and sadness were all beautiful.”



I can't believe it's truly over. I cried, screamed and ran away when Sung-jae was stabbed because I couldn't stand it and I was too scared. But overall, I truly enjoyed the drama and the ending. I wish I could've seen more of Da-hye's family, how Abeoji was doing and such, but I'm really content with how things were wrapped up.

I am devastated that Gi-tak's existence was wiped out. He touched many lives, and I now it's probably more merciful not to remember him than remembering how he truly died, but still… I was really crying by then, when she said her goodbyes.

I'm glad, however, they could say their goodbyes, to their loved ones. Lee-yeon and Gi-tak, Young-soo and his wife and family. It surely is terrible losing someone with the regret of parting ways with harsh words or after a fight, which was both cases. So no wonder they feel more at peace after properly letting go. Still sad.

I wish I could've seen the two ahjussis back in the After Life station, but I'm glad the real Hae-joon and Hong-nan (she probably has another name, though) met and seemed to have a connection. I could totally write a fan fiction about that.

TALKING ABOUT FAN FICTIONS! I really want to write one (or a one shot) about Maya's being Seung-jae's mother. Like, there isn't much said about that (almost nothing and it isn't even confirmed) but my head is filled with ideas and I want to fill those blank spaces. I'll see if I can share that with you. Would anyone want to read it?

My favourite scene was when Telephonic Secretary blew up, I just couldn't stop laughing and clapping like a seal. What was yours? I mean, there were so many but that caused my stronger reaction and lifted the burden in my heart.

I loved the K-drama, it was beautiful and very moving, with the right doses of humour and great cast and acting. It pulled my heartstrings and made me feel so much, so it definitely gets in my top ten dramas.

Thank you for reading and sharing this journey with me. See you all soon, I hope, recapping another K-drama.

Please Come Back, Mister Recaps: Episode 15 (Not dead yet)




It's time to recap episode 15 of Please Come Back, Mister. Are you ready? The cliffhanger for the previous one was massive. If you haven't watched it, here's the recap of it.

The previous episode left us screaming. Okay, it left me screaming because Hae-joon was run over! Episode 15 starts with Hae-joon walking to meet Da-hye, Suk-chul speeding up and hitting him, then running away. Hae-joon rolls on the road, people approach him and he stands up again, but falls, blood dripping from his forehead. Why is no one calling 911?

Da-hye waits at the restaurant. Hong-nan cuts her fingers overcome with an ominous feeling. Hae-joon once again stands up again, gets the flowers and wobbly makes his way. Some people ask him if he needs an ambulance. Really? I mean, really? Don’t you see he actually needs one? They just let him walk away as he mumbles this time he’ll be there.

Da-hye is still waiting, recalling the message written in the carriage, the ahjumma part. Then Hae-joon’s voice telling her he’ll keep his promise this time.

He actually makes it to the restaurant, panting, sweating and still bleeding, but he wipes that and tries to put his best face as he makes his way in, apologising for being later and giving her the flowers. He looks terrible, his lips are pale and his expression is so tired, but he still stays there, complimenting her, cutting the meat for her, treating her like he wanted and should’ve done. He keeps saying things that make her think back of Young-soo. Is he doing that on purpose or is it because he is like sixty percent dead already?


Hong-nan watches them fondly, recalling that time the three were there, even if they didn’t directly interact. Her eyes well up.

He finally thanks her for everything she’s done for him, every meal, and for being his family. He is happy this time he kept his promise. But even if she looks so pretty, he looks like he’s dying. He is probably dying (again!) and eventually, he just collapses.

Everybody runs to see what happened to him, and before he loses all consciousness, he says he was hit by a car and an ambulance finally takes him tot he hospital. There, he is rushed to run some exams while Hong-nan tries to comfort Da-hye.

Outside, Hong-nan makes some calls to try to find out what happened and who did it. She takes a look inside, how Da-hye is holding Hae-joon’s hand tightly and she starts complaining to the sky, saying if this is the way he’ll die. Maya shows up, saying that Hae-joon indeed will leave sooner because he doesn’t have more than two days.

Hong-nan doesn’t want to accept it, there must be a way, but Maya doesn’t have a choice whether he lives or not. Hong-nan wants her to bring him back, at least for Da-hye, they need to say goodbye. She’ll do anything…


There is a way, if she trades her time for his.

We don’t know her answer for sure, the scene changes to Hae-joon and Da-hye again, she taking his hand and begging him to wake up, saying she’ll be mad at him, telling him he can’t do this to her. Hong-nan and Maya are watching the scene and the former just nods her head before the latter walks up to Hae-joon, her hand on his forehead… transferring Gi-tak’s remaining time to him.


Later, Da-hye is asleep, holding Hae-joon’s hand. She tries to let go this time, but he grabs it back, holding it tight and asking her to go home. He finally opens his eyes and nods his head yes when she asks him if he’s okay. He really wants to go home, eat the homemade food of hers, see Han-na and such. She nods her head and agrees.

When the doctor comes asking for Hae-joon, the nurse tells him he was discharged although he had a stroke.

At home, Lee-yeon is going over a magazine, nagging about Jae-gook’s attitude during the meal. Then she finds in that old magazine an interview with her and her picture. Hong-nan doesn't say anything, just mumbles some agreement and watches her fondly, but there are no goodbyes.

Jae-gook meets with Suk-chul, giving to him the money in exchange of the recording but Suk-chul doesn’t just take his trap, President Ew has brought thugs to beat Suk-chul up, but he’s a mad hound and he’s done more. He confesses the hit-and-run to Hae-joon and how everything will be his fault. It was a trap for him.


Jae-gook get’s even angrier and his thugs beat Suk-chul up, but the bastards manages to escape.

At home, Da-hye is looking after Hae-joon, so is Han-na and Abeoji. I don’t know how long after, he finally wakes up when Da-hye has come to check his cut. He is all better now and before she leaves, he tells someone was looking after him in his dreams and gives her a new sticker, thanking her. She doesn’t accept it, though. He checks his watch now and alarmed, calls Maya.

Our awesome lady tells him his time hasn’t been reduced but extended, and once he comes back he’ll understand what happened. She wishes him good luck saying his goodbyes.


We finally get to know how his meeting with Telepathic Secretary went. Her father helped him before, and now she wants to do the same. I’d say it went well, then.

Lee-yeon has come to see Da-hye and they are having coffee while they talk about Hong-nan, and eventually Gi-tak. Lee-yeon finally mentions his name that triggers a reaction in Da-hye, she also confesses how much she like him and that he died, but his friends are protecting her now. She looks at Sung-jae, saying that they are like destiny. Da-hye looks troubled, but she doesn’t even know why she’s tearing up.

Manager Ma runs to Hae-joon then to show him something that is outrageous. Ji-hoon comes to see Jae-gook, telling him about the audio file on the internet and about the rumour, right before secretary comes to tell him about an emergency. Ji-hoon leaves before Jae-gook throw his tantrum.

As Lee-yeon walks around, everyone looks at her and eventually she’s asked if she is doing okay, but she doesn’t understand. Then Seung-jae receives an text and he’s directed to the audio that everyone has heard, saying it’s Jae-gook ordering Gi-tak’s death.


About to break down, Lee-yeon excuses herself but when she turns around, Hong-nan is there, looking pale as the audio repeats.

Hae-joon is facing Jae-gook who denies being involved, and our guy promises that if he was indeed involved, he’ll make Jae-gook pay for everything.

Lee-yeon and Hong-man look at each other, the actress tries to tell her and herself this can’t be, he is evil but he wouldn’t do this… yet she still excuses herself. Seung-jae is also having a break down, angry and revengeful, but Hong-nan tells him not to do anything stupid. Da-hye comes to Hong-nan, asking her if she’s okay.

Hong-nan then goes to see Hae-joon, but she isn’t doing well, because knowing someone actually killed him is hard to swallow, and the fact he hurt the people he loves. She wants to spend her remaining time with her sister more than seeking revenge. She asks him to stand by Da-hye’s side because until Suk-chul dies, she will have to still pretend to be Hong-nan.

Da-hye is dreaming of Gi-tak again when Hae-joon comes and asks her if something happened. She says how it’s strange how she’s feeling anxious and has a bad feeling. She requests of him that when the time comes, to please say goodbye. When he promises that, she leaves to her room.

Jae-gook is standing in his studio, office,

I don’t know, when Lee-yeon comes, asking him if he really did order Gi-tak’s murder. Contrary to what he told Hae-joon, he says it’s true, he really did it even if she begs him to tell her he didn’t. Eventually, he tells her it was her, because of what she did. Both look like they’ve lost their minds, completely insane.


Hong-nan is making calls, murmuring she barely has time. I’m sure she’s calling Lee-yeon, who keeps crying on the floor instead of picking up.

The next day, Jae-gook’s secretary tells him not to dress up so much when going to the prosecutor’s office, but he says he’s done nothing so why shouldn’t he?

Hong-nan comes to see Hae-joon, who explains that Jae-gook denies being involved so he’s doing his investigation. No CCTV, the black box of his car was missing, the truck was never found. So they need her to remember what happened to know exactly who killed Gi-tak.

She relives the accident, Seung-jae calling him to tell the police was there so he sped up to catch the paparazzi to prove Lee-yeon's innocence, but then the accident happened. However, that didn’t kill him, it was the truck that came later.

Hae-joon asks her if she remembers something strange, and she does, before Gi-tak met Young-soo at the afterlife station, he had a cigarette in his hands, but he had quit long ago.

She remembers now, once he was dead Suk-chul coming, playing with his lighter, checking if he was indeed dead. Someone else, tells Suk-chul he already sent the pictures, to whom? Jae-gook who was having a mental break down and in that state he orders Suk-chul to kill those bastards, staring at the picture. But by then, Gi-tak was already dead so it was Suk-chul who used Jae-gook to cover the murder. There he lights up the cigarette he found out later, the bastard left it lit in Gi-tak’s hand.


Suk-chul has killed all those people for money, he has nothing left to lose now. He wants the secret account. She has to continue being Gi-tak’s sister until the bastard dies, and then promises him that both Lee-yeon and Da-hye will be all right. He notices then their watches don’t match anymore and understands Maya’s words. Hong-nan confesses what happened and he hugs her tight, while she tells him just to be nice to her sister. He cries, she tears up as she pats his back.

Lee-yeon is back at home, drinking and remembering that time Hae-joon came to Hong-nan and Lee-yeon told them how pathetic they were. As she recalls that, she says they are the worst type of pathetic. She muses how it would’ve been nice if Gi-tak was also there, if he had seen how pretty and nice Hong-nan grew up to be.

She spots the old magazine and goes to the picture of her again, noticing this time in the background, there’s Gi-tak. Finally, her dream came true: she has a picture of them both. Hong-nan comes then and hears her telling Gi-tak how she is sorry for what happened, for being so selfish. She apologises over and over again, saying how she loves him so much. Hong-nan continues eavesdropping, eyes tearing up.

She comes in then, telling her no to be sorry because Jae-gook wasn’t the one who ordered to kill Gi-tak, she has nothing to be sorry about. She asks him that after this, she has to take care of Young-chan. She tells her she has little time left and she’s done everything she came here for, and then walks way. Lee-yeon still can’t look up to her and is left crying. She attempts to go after Hong-nan, but doesn’t at the end.


The next day, Jae-gook walks in during a meeting schedule to, basically, fire him. He makes a fuss about it, asking who is behind. Hae-joon comes in, saying it was him who is now the one who has the most shares int he company. After his scandal, the price came down so much so he got even more shares.

Explaining all what Jae-gook's done wrong, Hae-joon explains his motion and once it is accepted, every shareholder votes whether they approve of it or not. Chairman Cha is the first to raise his hand. It’s unanimous, Jae-gook is dismissed. For the time being, Hae-joon is the one who’ll be acting as the president.

Then, Hae-joon meets with Hong-nan, telling her Da-hye wants to see her. She comes in, with the picture she found of her and Gi-tak. She asks what’s going on, and HAe-joon says he’s found her brother, but she can’t tell her about it because that’s what her brother wanted, however he did that to protect her and because he loves her.


Da-hye asks if her brother is Gi-tak…

Around, Suk-chul is playing with his lighter, grinning as he eavesdrop their conversation.

The epilogue shows the real Hae-joon and the pilot being all lovey-dovey, doing really well and not even bothering with every ship that goes by… until one passes closes and they are finally saved!



I'm so relieved Hae-joon didn't die, I was so scared… but he was going to. Thank you, Hong-nan! The feeling this is ending and they have to leave is so imminent it chokes me. I've grown to hate Suk-Chgulmore than Jae-gook, I find the latter just pathetic. I really hope the thug gets what he deserves.

I found so emotive when Hae-joon hugged Hong-nan for giving him her time, like I had goosebumps. Their bonding friendship is just precious, don't you agree? I think that was also my favourite scene. What was yours?

The ending is out so I'll go post the recap now. See you all there!
