Gyu-shik returns to the hospital room, in which Ji-hyun is still sleeping - Ahn Do-young is back at the company (who said that thing about his eyebrows the other day on Twitter?! dammit! I cannot look at him the same!). Both of them think back to what happened just now, how Ahn hit Gyu-shik in the face (satisfactory much?) and told him he should have let go of Ji-hyun when he told him to. When he wanted to storm past Gyu-shik into the hospital room though, Gyu-shik held him back and said: Let's stop here.
But now, Gyu-shik doesn't think he is worthy of Ji-hyun anymore (of course). He sits down next to her on the bed and tells her he will stop the divorce lawsuit. He will let her go with a consensual divorce. She can stay in the house with the kids - and he will give her all the money she needs (what about all the assets he wanted to give to his mother? I hope he hasn't already?). Live in dignity, he says. To show his mother. Of course, she turns it all down - she doesn't need those riches. Papperlapapp he says. When she was lying there in the hospital he asked himself how he would live if she didn't wake up? He prayed for the first time in his life. It's the least he can do.
Sun-mi buys Puppy an expensive jacket as a farewell present. He is touched and invites her to dinner the next evening. She goes to the restaurant but there is no Puppy. In fact, his friends have organized a surprise party for him - he will be 30 minutes late. The 30 minutes turn into more than 2 hours though and when he finally gets there, Sun-mi has left.
It's time for their final goodbye ... she isn't going to accompany him to the airport. He waits there in front of her house until her car has disappeared, as per his wish to "see her leave". She doesn't cry, but when Moon is extremely nice to her right after and tells her that the reason is that she promised Puppy she would be there for her during her pregnancy and when Puppy sends a message that he is now in the plane and loves her, she finally does cry.

They're at the wedding shop again, but there IS no wedding! The drama isn't quite done yet (like he said it would happen) - but his film has become hugely successful. He is super upset about the delay though, poor dude.
This drama lost its footing somewhere in the middle when its originality fell pray to some of the most dreadfully old and overused KDrama cliches. The only thing missing from the list was amnesia. A shame, really... But this ending was alright, so alright despite the cheesiness and the neatness that I am ready to forgive this drama those torture-episodes in the middle.
I will try to only remember those first few episodes that had me LOVE the writer and cable and the possibilities of difference in KDrama. I will try to remember only the wonderful performances by Uhm Tae-woon and Eugene (she did so well! Brava!) and especially, I will remember HIS wonderful character. Despite the pushiness that I HATE, it was so nice to see such an upright, talkative, honest, wonderful male character. I will forget those parts of Jung-wan's characters that annoyed me (like ... almost everything). I will remember Tae-geuk but not her mother. I will probably forget about Snotty Brat and Ex-husband. Booooooooring. I will forget how the destroyed Sun-mi's character with that bullshit scheme. I will only remember her redeemed self that finds happiness with one of the cutest men in the world (even though she probably doesn't deserve it). I will forget almost everything about Ji-hyun and Gyu-shik and the rest of that storyline. And I guess I will have to forget Ahn Do-young ... who really didn't have much of a story anyway. Poor man.
Here is to difference in KDrama! Let us get more of it. Thank you.
