Exact same thoughts here!!

 

Thanks @annchoi for posting. Now we need subs....!!! :D@stroppyse would you be able to help us here? I'm not sure if you can access weibo video or not.

So, didn't bother to translate the lyrics they were singing. Here is a translation of the dialogue between Sunny and the LH Doppelganger.

 

(after the Doppelganger messes up his singing)
SN: How many times is that, you? Aren’t you going to rehearse properly?
Doppel: I’m sorry, sunbae-nim. (let’s out a nervous laugh)
SN: You’re laughing? Are you even able to laugh (right now)? You must be lacking something. (meaning he must not be right in the head) If the play is ruined because of you, will you take responsibility? Are you going to just laugh it off then as well?
Doppel: I’ll work diligently, sunbae-nim!
SN: Strangely, I didn’t like you from the very beginning. If you continue to not practice, I’ll totally cut you. (meaning from the role)
Director: Oh, Sunny-shi, but still he says that he’s a 10 year fan of yours, so don’t be so hard on him. Let’s take care of him well as we’re doing it. Okay?
SN: So what if he’s a fan? Is that something that should get special consideration? If he’s a fan, shouldn’t he being doing it even more diligently? (sees Doppel with his head down) Omo. Omo. Are you crying?!
Doppel: Sunbae-nim… While we’re taking a break, could you sign an autograph for me?
SN: Get lost! Aren’t you going to get lost?!
Doppel: I don’t want to get lost!
SN: You think I’m easy, don’t you? (meaning he thinks that she’s weak and doesn’t need to be considered) Just because I keep letting you get off, you see me as laughable, and… (turns to the director) Let’s quit rehearsal here. I need to take this one (pointing at Doppel) firmly in hand. (meaning she’s going to make him rehearse his part over and over again rather than doing a full rehearsal)
Doppel: Then, does that mean that today, sunbae and I will be alone together? A date?!
SN: Are you crazy?!
Doppel: Actually… from sunbae’s debut, I was a total fan. (meaning one of those total obsessive fans) And, it’s because of sunbae that I became an actor in musicals. Even though, right now, I’m lacking in many ways, and I like you more, but I’ll try hard to become a person who is fit to be with sunbae. Just wait. I will cause sunbae to definitely like me a lot more.

 

(Flashback/flashforward? - think this is a flashback, but not entirely sure)
SN: I’m going to make your majesty definitely like me a lot more. Just wait and see.
(end flashback/forward?)

 

Doppel: Noona, where are you going?
SN: Noona?! You think you can just do as you please? (she’s angry that he’s addressing her so familiarly and kicks him)
Doppel: Noona! Noona!  (then smiles even as she’s walked off)

 

 

So, do I take it that this is an epilogue for those fans who were mourning that SN didn't end up with LH? Hmm. Where is the epilogue ending where SN and WS doppelganger end up together as they laugh at the LH doppelganger? Just saying. Anyway, this is a cute exchange anyway, especially as the doppelganger is being all "noona" and a fan of SN and all that.

Or maybe....

 

Lee Hyuk fake his death to live as an usual person... not as an Emperor again, just like what he said before to Ssu Ni...

 

Sunny forgive him at all... then maybe Ssu Ni help him to the hospital, and threatment him secretly, and then just like Min Yu Ra who lost her memories, maybe Lee Hyuk also lost his memories... 

 

Byun also take a part to make new identity of Lee Hyuk as Jung Man Soo.. just like he done to Na Wang Shik get Chun Woo Bin as his new identity...

I wonder what prompted them to do an epilogue?

 

I'm not complaining though! It really made Hyuk's dying words of: "What if we didn't meet as Emperor and Empress?" better. Now they meet as two theatrical actor/actress. I'm so glad that Sunny got an ending with another person (who oddly looks like her dead husband). We don't even know this new person's name and they just leave. 

 

It's also not a coincidence that they're singing the same song that Hyuk used to propose to Sunny, I think. There's definitely another message in there. 

 

Clearly I can't let go of this drama!

LOL! Watching this epilogue also made me think what you're thinking. That somehow the Emperor faked his death and got another identity and made it younger than Sunny (thus the "noona" part which was so funny). It also helped make sense as to why after 4 bullets going through his body the Emperor was still reciting a monologue to both his mother and then to Sunny before he passed out and died (maybe he was wearing a bullet proof vest? LOL!). I mean I wouldn't be surprised as the Emperor seems to have this mischievous side to him and so he would probably enjoy and have fun being another person and trying to woo back Sunny while she is clueless as to who he is. OMG! That epilogue just made my imagination go crazy.  HAHA! It's like Moon Lovers - Scarlet Heart Ryeo all over again for me.

I don't think Hyuk faked his death because Sunny got the auditor involved with the case, hence, his death cannot be easily fake since the auditor would have arrested him for his crime. Besides, who could help cover his fake death? ED doesn't have the power since she was promptly arrested (and she was arrested for the murder of the emperor as one of her charge, hence the police has already confirmed his death). Hyuk was severely injured. Sunny would not have covered his death since she had told him to pay for his crime if he wants to gain forgiveness. So, I think Hyuk is dead and this person just look like Hyuk.

Preview of Choi Jin hyuk's guesting on We Will Channel You.

The Last Empress fever is still on and Na Wang shik's transformation will always be remembered.

I agree. I don't think Hyuk faked it because as you mentioned for all of the reasons above, he can't escape the auditors. Even as ED is jail with KSH, he can't escape without being arrested. I think he knew that he was going to die while carrying out his "final mission" too. And plus, Sunny watched him die in her arms so she wouldn't be as calm and had tears in her eyes while looking at this exact same person.

 

I find this to be a nice ending, it gave me the closure that I needed knowing that Hyuk died and Sunny ended up with someone who looks like him. A lot of things are coincidental too: the proposal song, the lines said, and the smile. I think Sunny really wanted to slap him and then hug him, but knew that it was someone completely different that was in love with her. I thought it was very cute.

 

I sincerely hope that SSR and JNR starr in a romcom next. I'm ready for the chemistry!! Please toss me all of the sweet candies and not the sour ones from TLE...

I remember when Fated to Love You ended, JNR & JH did a short 1 episode drama which was super sweet.

 

Hope some producer can pair her with SSR even if it's just for an hour drama. I seriously love watching them together.

 

Note: Thanks for the epilogue video. Dongsaeng LH is so cute.

I would love to see a drama with SSR and JNR again, just this time his character not a total meanie whack job having an affair. I did kind of like the bad guy x good girl dynamic in a sense, cause he’s so good at being charismatic and rough around the edges while her being so angelic and kind. Seeing how the leads from goblin reunited in Touch your heart, I would love a imiliar kdrama like that for them.

Best. Idea. Ever. I remember the special that they did. It was so depressing, and dark. If Jang Nara and SSR ever do a special together, I would be sooooooo happy. But it has to be happy, and they must have a happy ending. I miss SSR a lot. Please, get him a new drama, somebody.

It's such a sweet epilogue. They knew that we were hurting and they wanted to make us feel better. But I want him in a suit, too, like @katakwasabi. Pey haaaaa please tell me you're alive, lost all your memories and are leading a new life as an ordinary guy this time with Sunny at your side.

After I watched the last episode the second time, I would like to share my thoughts.

 

First, the new epilogue: I like how everything is reverse. In the original, it was Sunny who had a crush on Hyuk for ten years, but now, it is the doppelganger who has a crush on Sunny. In the original, Sunny made a bad impression for Hyuk when she met him "the first time" and asked for his autograph, and in this case, it is the doppelganger who made a bad impression for Sunny and asked for her autograph.  

 

On to the final episode. To be very honest, I wanted Sunny to end up with NWS, but from this conclusion, it looks like she only loved Hyuk in this lifetime. It doesn't mean she loves him at the end of the drama because she still reveal his crime to the world (and she tried to push his head away when he laid his head on her shoulder), but he was her only "true love." That would explain the sparse love line between Sunny and NWS. Also, it shows that Sunny has a strong moral standard since she is still legally marry to Hyuk, she wouldn't form any romantic relationship with another. Unfortunately, that means that she find NWS attractive, but her feelings toward NWS is gratitude, comaradarie, guilt (for being Hyuk's alibi), responsibility (for his demise), and protectiveness. Even if she is no longer legal married to Hyuk, the fact that she only reminisce of Hyuk's past action shows where her heart lies.

 

So it brings it back to the conversation they have in episode 50. What could he do to earn her forgiveness...how could he earned back her love. During that conversation, Sunny revealed there was a possible chance for her to forgive him (notice she never said love...it was only Hyuk) if he had confessed and take responsibility of his mistake. When Hyuk did take the responsibility to reveal everything, Sunny did not expect he would pay the ultimate price...and Sunny did forgive him because she mourned his death.

 

For Hyuk, the Imperial Family was his everything, and to give that up, he would have to destroy the life he tried so hard to obtained and owe up to the crime he had committed. NWS, his grandmother, Sunny, and ED pushed him to discard the Imperial Family. When ED pointed the gun at him, he had resigned himself to his fate...and like his grandmother, he choose to use his death (in the hand of his mother) destroy the Imperial Family. Some might say he took a cowardly end because he didn't live to pay for his crime, but I don't think he was trying to run away from his crime when he stood there and allow his mother to shoot him...I think he was inspired by his grandmother and he was remorseful for pushing his own grandmother to her death. The irony of his death was that, he couldn't live to see the one thing he desire the most...Sunny's forgiveness. 

 

Hyuk's transition was logical, in a sense. He had always been weak to sacrifices...others sacrificing for him. Remember that he wanted to kill Yura but immediately wanted to protect her when she "sacrificed herself" to save him...and that's how he "fell in love" with her? NWS's sacrifice was the ultimate sacrifice-he saved an enemy and fulfill his promise to keep the woman he loved safe, and for Hyuk, this was something he didn't expect nor was he able to do that. He made Hyuk looks pitiful and hypocritical (and he is...:phew:)...and that was the huge reason for his ultimate decision.

Wooww... so interesting about this.. is this a part of FTLY story or not? 

Can you help me give some keyword to find this... 

 

CJH and JNR looks never fated to gether as a couple, and about their role in both of TLE and FTLY, JNR as a married woman.. and CJH in love with her... :bawling:  just looks like CJH became JNR guardian angel...

 

 

 

 

-- about Lee Hyuk fake his death -- 

I know it's imposible and also that's could'nt be happen, 

Just my mind that having fun imagine it.. :joy:

 

@breakmyheart yeaahh .. that's only my imagination...
