    Just watched the series. I heard all the hypes about it but was hesitated to watch because many people were talking about the bad ending. There were even websites trying to explain what the ending meant. Anyway, watched the first 10 episodes, found it interesting and likeable. In the middle of the 11th episode, it’s getting a little dragging, so I decided to skip to the end and find out where did all the complaints come from. I have to say, I love the ending! Instead of sealing off with a kiss or a traditional wedding scene, the writer was trying to make something more memorable. Though it’s not the most well done plot, but I applaud their efforts, and from the ending I did feel the love and fate of the main couple.

    I haven’t read any of the interpretations of the ending on the internet so my take on the ending could be very different from the writer’s intention, but this is how I see it: Two possibilities, one is a parallel world/after life scenario, the other is what happened in Paris was all the screenplay/book written by the female lead, the ending part where they were in Korea was the real life. She made a wish that she would meet a true love just like the characters in her book, and she did. I personally think the latter is the real intention of the writer.

    Overall, a great drama that worth all the raves!

    re: Comment #103
    I just finished watching this, too….and here’s my take.

    I agree, I don’t think the ending was that bad.

    However, I think the scenarios after they had met again @ the fountain after 2 years presented the possibilities that Kijoo was talking about after Taeyoung’s question if they would still have met even if Taeyoung was not Kijoo’s housemaid or if Kijoo did not ruin Yangmi’s cigarettes in the street of Paris.

    Kijoo said then that they would probably still meet, or would have already met…thus, the paralleling scenarios of how they met that led to the ending of the drama i.e., her working as his housemaid not in Paris but in Korea.

    Let me ask this question again and again: why do they always choose the main actress that is so plain and unlikable. This one is definitely so.very plain with a odd face and annoying…

    I am on my 15th episode and I still do not like Kim Joon Eun. Those buck teeth and those thin lips are annoying. She is annoying the way she just enters this guy’s life andante everyone upset even the nephew and she still wants everyone to like her. Why should they like her? She has nothing to offer.

    Glad that I have watched this drama, it’s such an interesting and touching story. I think that’s what true love is about. Love the cast, great actors, worth watching. Though it was sometime back but still a good drama not to be missed. Was confused with the ending but after I read the comment by #104 imel, I get a better picture. I agreed with imel. Highly recommended to those who have not watched it.
