I won’t pretend that this was the most thought-provoking, well-written drama out there but it was very entertaining and I leave the drama feeling satisfied.
I really enjoyed Episode 15 as it was full of action and suspense. Who knew that they could make the boring evil vet story interesting? The journey might not have been the best but the destination made up for it.
While the ritual tool clinched it, I’m glad that the monk, Bong Pal and Hyun Ji were able to do considerable damage without it. So it’s almost like these three were a strong force even without that tool. We also learned that Bong Pal inherited some of his ability from his mother.
After all that action, the final episode left us with a warm and fuzzy feeling.
Hyun Ji and Bong Pal had their happy ending. This was hardly shocking but the preview for the finale made me expect the usual crappy Kdrama ending where couples break up and act like phones haven’t been invented. Here, they acted like normal people. Yes, her mom was a problem and Hyun Ji had to study for her exams but they made a promise to reunite and kept in touch. Thank you, Writer, for making them behave like real people who love each other.
Speaking of which, am I the only one who wanted to slap the mom when she got mad at Bong Pal? I fully understand her being skeptical of someone who suddenly showed up but if I recall, she invited the killer into her home! She was very welcoming to the man who almost killed her daughter while trying to keep her away from the one who protected her so yeah, not cool, Mom. But I suppose they needed some conflict.
In Rang and Chun Sang are practically a couple and I feel bad for any women they date because they’ll have to play second fiddle in their lives. It’s not easy to marry a man who already has a spouse. LOL
Seo Yeon remained the afterthought that she always was. It’s a shame her only role was to make Hyun Ji jealous.
The ending I am really not satisfied with is the professor’s. While it’s not fair for him to die, it’s also unfair for him to spend the rest of his life paying for someone else’s sin. They tried to justify it by claiming he brought it upon himself for having murderous thoughts but that’s hardly a crime and is in fact, very human. What’s so terrible about wishing to kill the abusive father who is making both you and your mom’s lives miserable? He wouldn’t have been able to push that man off the balcony without that evil spirit so let’s not equate his desperate thoughts to murderous actions. However, I’m glad that he and his mom can now build a relationship.
That aside, it was a good ending. I love that Bong Pal and the monk now live together. He’s correct – that’s the only family he has… well, till he and Hyun Ji get married in four years. LOL. And next time, if they want us to be surprised at Hyun Ji getting into his university, they shouldn’t spoil it in the preview. Haha.
A cute couple, a cute bromance and a lovely story that ends with Sundae Soup continuing to do what they do best. It ended just like it should.
Thank you tvN, the cast and the crew for this sweet ride.
