I was really looking for this music and then it was not even in the special ost album. 22 hours ago, chickfactor said: It's just my conclusion, based on everything I saw. I said I felt that this show felt "precisely engineered." I found the emotional abuse and manipulations of both Aunt and Jin awful to the point of absurdity. So basically, Ye-Ji has been abused and manipulated for the past 17-18 years of her life, and she's only been free from it for a year (at the end of the show). And then we discover that Hwan has been mistreated by his family, too, and he comes to a belated realization of that fact. At the end of the show, he is truly free of his family for the first time. Ye-Ji's mother gives this relationship a thumbs-up. We know JinHwan's father well enough to know that he won't do anything to stop them. The only people who would object are Jin and their mother, who are both completely self-obsessed a-holes so no one cares if this makes them upset. So to me, it seems like there's a bright red arrow that's been drawn clearly pointing to: these two people will end up together. Every possible element is pointing to that. This is what I mean when I say "precisely engineered." I think the writer feels defensive because she knows that this is a controversial story, so the decks were stacked. I have no objection to that. It's the story that the writer wanted to tell, and obviously, I sank deep into that. Like it or hate it, this show occupied my brain space. There are other factors that are also clearly pointing to --> these two will end up together. The fact that Hwan has connections abroad (work/school) makes it possible and likely that they'll live abroad. The fact that Hwan's family has a certain amount of wealth also makes it possible that there are less constraints. All these factors were put there for a reason. They'll have three years apart from each other and away from the Yangpyeong house to think it over. But seeing how their love fires are still burning after all that time, and all that they've each been through, I can't imagine this fire dying for either of them. The writer could have told us clearly that these two people will treasure what they had... and then move on from each other. But she chose not to. So I can only draw one conclusion from that. Thank you for the explanation. <3 All the highlighted part, makes more sense now that I look back. The fact that ye ji's mom never even considered that it's a wrong idea, it is such a nice feeling that she chose her daughter's side. I guess yes, both of them needed to leave that house to get a freedom from that bondage. Although I could not buy it that mom became so nice suddenly lol, haha. About the last part, I would play the devil's advocate here again haha, didn't we get an answer from both of them that they will cherish them in their heart and never forget. I do like Hwan's answer more. How he said he doesn't know if it is the beginning or the ending of his love. I am just trying to get more explanation from you so that I can convince myself they meet again haha. Anyway like you said, I guess the writer felt pressured and that's why kept the ending open. If it was a US drama, may be we would see something else. Elena has had romance with both the vampire brothers and there was never any uproar haha. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
