    I’m really glad the writer didn’t drag out Kwang Chul’s unconsciousness & so thankful she didn’t use the amnesia card. Seriously, I didn’t dare blink when KC finally woke up! Simply adores how unpredictable our lady writer is!

    I just loved that In Ae was being cerebral with her dealings with the despicable, PYT. It was such a delight to see him squirm & be that defenseless because IA didn’t leave him any room to weasel his way out……just priceless! I’m just as excited as the rest of you guys for payback time! I definitely could see it coming preeeetty soon. IA now has all the aces against the Match Made In Hell, PYT & Iron Butterfly…….the recording to incriminate PYT should anything bad happens to her; the documents TK gave IA for safekeeping which would put the evil pair in jail for a long time; & of course, the PM’s protection, that is, if & when he gets out of his cowardly self, be a father to IA & really protect her to the end. So definitely the evil pair would soon be DEAD MEAT……..******rubs hands with glee****** In fact, they should start liking the color BLUE because pretty soon BLUE would be the ONLY color they would be wearing when they get settled……….in the SLAMMER!

    That beach scene between In Ae & Kwang Hoon was both nostalgic & meaningful. I liked that it showed the contrast of feelings between the two…….KH’s longing looks at her & IA’s total indifference to his presence. It clearly showed how she felt about her past with KH. IA’s heels digging deeply in the sand sort of symbolized the deep wound he left in her heart due to his betrayal; her walking away from him as she took heavy steps initially then finally getting the hang of it, meant that after so many struggles she had finally come to terms with reality……..she had moved on & was letting him go!

    Count me in coz I’m still on board the KC/IA ship……..there’s NO WAY I’m giving up on them! I’m still confident the writer, being unpredictable throughout this drama, wouldn’t give all these hints……..IA finally moving on & letting go of KH………IA finally realizing she truly loves KC……..KC loving IA unconditionally & endlessly…….Esther now being the center of both IA’s & KC’s lives…………if the endgame won’t be a HAPPY ENDING TOGETHER for our endearing couple, KC & IA! Pleeeeeeeease writernim!!!!

    Still crazy about Endless Love!

    Big fan Says:

    jamie, I think your description of InAe’s heels digging into the sand symbolizing the wound deep in her heart was really awesome. I had not thought about that. I knew that the beach was very significant in InAe and Kwang Hoon’s past love; and it seems very appropriate that she turns away from KH at the beach. KH looking at IA with deep longing and regret….. a little of payback I want.

    Epi 28 was great! I love the way the storyline moves without “unnecessary fillers.” I am glad to say I was wrong when I thought Kwang Chul may give up on InAe. In Epi 28, I noticed the way KC looks at InAe and the tone of his voice when he talks to her. Such tenderness and deep love. He only seems to use that gentle tone with IA and Esther.

    I love, love this drama!

    ace_diamonds Says:

    If burning bridges is a good way to sever ties and references to old loves, then Seo InAe has more than burned bridges, she has incinerated all memories of KH never to rise from the ashes again. Such a sad chapter in her life will be shoved away and discarded like yesterday’s newspapers. a life lesson that a promise of love and loyalty is as reliable as the dubious weather in tornado season.

    I felt a subtle hint that she may leave Esther with KC and SK while she embarks on her mission of justice, a magnanimous gesture on her part as she exits the picture. The next preview shows a brief embrace between KC and SK. I’m a little disappointed but it’s not the end of the world. InAe is proving to be a great strategist as she methodically gathers the secret ammo for the political fight of her life,a fight that will change history…

    I’ve got just two words for episodes 28 & 29……….ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I just love the “new” In Ae! Finally, I see a strong, fierce woman who’s more than capable of holding her own against her adversaries, the despicable PYT & the untrustworthy General Chun…….who’s so resilient that regardless of the adversity & conflicts in her life, she rose above it all & never ever let her horrible past break her spirit or shape her soul. I totally love what she has become now……..outspoken, independent, self-assured, way more intelligent, & most of all, empowered……I couldn’t be any happier! That scene at the courthouse was truly EPIC……..soooooo proud of In Ae! Oh dear me, I got emotional myself as she was pleading justice for that young woman who was violated while imprisoned.

    Absolutely love seeing IA, KC, & Esther together……they look pretty much like a REAL family! Oh writernim…..there you go again with your hints! Aaaaww…..Esther is so cute & adorable & she’s truly a Daddy’s girl! Loved that scene where KC & Esther were outside IA’s office waiting for her to come out. She’s so close to KC that she actually “listens” to him……..when he said they should wait for IA to come out coz she’s working late, Esther readily agreed; but the moment he suggested that they should go & check if she’s done, she was more than happy to do it because it was exactly what she wanted to do from the start but KC talked her out of it, & she did it for her Daddy! Also, when IA asked her what she wanted to eat, she instinctly asked her Daddy KC what would he want as well………such a sweet little munchkin, I love her!

    So excited for the weekend’s episodes! Totally loving Endless Love!

    jamie Says:

    You are so right, malou1010! Episodes 28 & 29 were definitely so powerful & truly amazing! I completely agree with you about In Ae’s rebirth……I love her even more! She faced many struggles & obstacles in life……she stumbled & fell lots of times but she fought for her dreams & never ever strayed onto the wrong path. Her tragic past didn’t weigh her down but instead made her even stronger & more than anything, it did help light her path out of the darkness & brought her to…….exactly where she wanted to be, doing exactly what needs to be done, & most of of all, saying exactly what needs to be heard. She didn’t allow her past to define her life…….she defined HERSELF! I couldn’t be any prouder!

    I’m more than satisfied with how the story is unfolding & I’m excited to see the Match Made In Hell pair, PYT & Iron Butterfly, finally wearing their would-be-couple BLUE prison uniforms! Happy thoughts!!!

    I’m in such a good mood right now that I simply refuse to comment on KH’s irritating behavior in IA’s office. But…..if I must, then I’d keep it short. What he did was truly very “typical” KH………he’s such an “A#^>*<E"!

    Erm……..it's now 3AM on my side of the world, so that means…..Yaaaaawn……..my bedtime!

    Love this drama so, so, so much!

    jamie Says:

    @ Big fan

    Me too, I loved that scene you mentioned. This is one quality of KC that is so endearing……..he’s always in tune with IA’s feelings! Which goes bothways so seriously, KC & IA are truly soulmates……..love them so much!

  7. 207
    malou1010 Says:

    @ jamie

    Oh my goodness, you really crack me up! Love that “would-be couple blue prison uniforms”! I just popped in to check the ratings & ugh……..I was really disappointed! Such a shame really that this amazing drama with brilliant actors/actresses is not getting the ratings it trully deserves. But at least after reading your post, I felt a whole lot better. You made my day!!!

  8. 208
    malou1010 Says:

    Gosh, I did say in one of my previous posts that I’d be willing to put the loveline between Kwang Chul & In Ae in the back burner, but…………writernim sucked me right back in! I was glad KC finally had the courage to ask IA where he stands. He must have felt in his heart that it was the right moment, so he didn’t waste that chance……..he told her exactly what’s in his heart! When he asked her if he should leave & that he could let her go now, I took it as his way of telling her that it’s time for her to choose. But adding if it’s for Esther, he just can’t ever leave her, I was so overwhelmed because right there & then I could feel he loves Esther as much as he loves IA! And when KC hugged IA, after she told him that she had long given up being a woman, I was incredibly glad! Why? Because for what it’s worth, when KC asked her should he leave & is he insignificant to her, IA never gave him a categorical answer! And most importantly, she didn’t push him away but she stayed in his arms……….Aaaaaaw, I loved that scene! Hints again, writernim! But I do love this last hint the most because it’s giving me positive vibes that my KC/IA ship is worth holding on, after all!

    I do get where IA is coming from. She was traumatized by her tragic past, & it has damaged her emotionally in such a way that she thinks she can’t love again. I’m hoping that she will have the courage to finally open her heart to KC, & acknowledge that she,too, loves him as deeply as he has always loved her. After all, time heals all pains. IA always says time & again that she has a scar from her past. Which brings me to this beautiful quote I came across which says…..”There is something beautiful about all scars, whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed & healed…..it’s done with!”

    In the preview, KH must have been in a terrible car accident. He’s in cardiac arrest & the medical staff is trying to revive him! Aaaah, writernim…… don’t go there, please! Regardless of how much I despise KH character, I don’t want to lose one of the 3 main characters. Just………NO!

    So glad it’s weekend tomorrow. Fingers crossed, ratings will be better. Endless Love………FIGHTIIIIIING!

    jamie Says:

    Episodes 30 & 31 were absolutely great episodes! I love the fact that In Ae by fighting for Jan Ji Hee’s vindication & winning in the process, she herself went through her own emotional healing as well. Both of them had been through such a horrid experience that now they both share a special bond, so deep that only the two of them could ever relate to. JJH’s freedom meant pretty much like IA’s own freedom too. That scene where JJH ran happily into IA’s arms, after being released from prison, has to be one of the happiest moments in IA’s life. Mine too……I am just so proud of IA! I love her character so much!

    Seriously, I’m really on the fence about the PM’s political suicide. Rather than be imprisoned which made him unproductive, being the PM; he could have joined forces with Opposition Party Leader, & with his political clout & popularity be instrumental in bringing forth the clamor for a change to a democratic form of government. This way he could have shielded himself from the backlash of the present regime. But then again, if he did that, I would have missed the joy of seeing the vile witch, Iron Butterfly, having a nervous breakdown because she could never ever be a First Lady, which was her ultimate dream in life. That’s her reality which she has to face for the rest of her wretched life. I’m extremely delighted! However, I’m not so keen about her going insane……Heck NO! The humiliation of having that power stripped from her was just the beginning of the much awaited payback time for all her evil deeds. She needs to suffer so much more & when the right time comes……I want her completely sane! And her EVIL HALF, PYT, of course! I’m glad the writer won’t take that route as seen in the preview for this weekend’s episode.

    That scene between KC & IA was just awesome! I truly love & adore KC so much more! Finally, KC broke his silence to let IA know how he felt about her pushing him away. I don’t think KC ever responded to IA’s pushing him away till now. That hug was to me a sure giveaway that our endearing couple will have a happy ending together! IA didn’t attempt, not even once, to break away from KC’s hug…..I love that scene! Finally we get our first hug from KC & IA! It sure was a looooong wait……..we got it after 31 episodes! More to come, I hope!

    So true, malou1010! I feel IA is too wounded to take the risk for fear of getting hurt, betrayed, or rejected. I hope she stops denying what her heart tells her & she finds the strength to start all over again. KC truly loves her…….he loves all of her……every imperfections, every past mistakes, Esther…….EVERYTHING! He’s such a great guy to pass up & he’s just waiting for her to give him that chance of loving her the way she deserves to be loved. I’m for KC & IA all the way!

    I love Endless Love soooo much!

    Woah another drama from SBS has to cut the episodes short due to low ratings, recently GD drama and now this one Endless Love, the episodes cut to 37 instead of 40 episodes. Wow what’s wrong with SBS this year????!!!

    They need re-formulate all of upcoming dramas otherwise all of those dramas will fail 🙁

    malou1010 Says:

    I disagree. True, Endless Love didn’t get the top 5 ranking but it did get included with the top 20 most viewed TV shows at its designated days & timeslots. It stood its ground & was pretty consistent in its ratings & rankings since it got started, dropping twice only in its 32 run of episodes.

    It’s such a shame really that this drama has not been more popular because I do believe it deserves to be. Its story is so well-written & all the cast especially the main leads are such brilliant actors & actresses. I love this drama so much!

    malou1010 Says:

    Oh dear me, I was just totally thrilled with episode 33’s ending! It was a dream come true for me……I couldn’t be any happier! Usually, I’m irritated whenever I see scenes in kdramas calling for splashing water on someone’s face. But hey……seeing In Ae splash water on the face of that evil witch, Iron Butterfly, was too exhilarating to pass up……absolutely adored that scene! Heck, I would have preferred that IA poured the whole darn pitcher of water instead of just a measly glass of water! IB is just unbelievable. She will stop at nothing to achieve her goal. When IA demanded an apology & wanted IB to beg for forgiveness……ON HER KNEES…….I was like, “Nah, there’s no way that she’ll go that low!” But, oh my gosh, IB did it! I know IB wasn’t really sincere but I couldn’t care less! Just seeing that vile witch stoop that low, & begging IA……..ON HER KNEES…….was truly priceless! I’m pretty sure IA will savor that moment …….& I expect her to turn down her request FLAT OUT!

    When IA told KH: “A woman with scars needs a deeper love. Deeper & earnest love to be genuine, endless patience is required”……..it got me thinking…….was this meant for KC? Is this IA’s way of telling the KC/IA shipper (Ok now, jamie & Big fan prepare to join me in boarding our KC/IA ship! Btw, why are you MIA, Big fan?), that she’s now beginning to realize that KC’s enduring patience has finally won her heart over? That now she knows in her heart that KC’s willingness to wait for her to accept his love……only proves to her just how much he values her love. Aaaaaww…..writernim, is this another hint! I’m all for it!

    I’m really, really, really so sad they cut 3 episodes of Endless Love! I’m hoping writernim won’t give a rush ending……Just NO! I want to see the evil pair, PYT & IB, finally paying for all the injustices they committed. More than ever, I want to see IA being instrumental in putting handcuffs on the despicable, evil bastard PYT, whom she calls the epitome of all evils, & tagging along, of course, is his equally evil partner, IB. I want them both to ROT in jail for the rest of their miserable lives!

    Most of all, I want to see In Ae & Kwang Chul having a HAPPY ENDING together. If IA (but NOT this, writernim! Jeeeeeebal!) ends up being just a mother to Esther, a force to reckon with politically, happily doing the work she loves, & fighting the good fights……I’ll be happy for her as well. If she ends up being a mother, a leader, & a woman who finally acknowledges that her heart belongs to no one else but KC………I’ll be incredibly ecstatic! This………this is exactly my ultimate wish for a happy ending!

    With just 4 episodes to go, I’m so excited for the last 4 episodes! Totally loving this drama!

    dropping once only in its 33 run of episodes (based on AGB ratings & rankings which are more reliable since it has more viewers than TNmS).

    Big fan Says:

    Epi 32 and 33 were really great. I just love this drama and cannot believe that it is not receiving the very good ratings that it deserves! I was so disappointed to see that the number of episodes are decreased by 3!!!

    I am ready for InAe to open her heart to KC…..please, please…. I am afraid that KC will give up InAe to his older brother who seems to be going through a very rough marriage issues. It has been said multiple times in previous episodes that KC acts more like an older brother (being thoughtful and more caring to his brother.). I will be devastated if InAe does not get to love again and feel whole as a woman. I don’t want that evil PYT to take away any part of InAe to love again.

    I feel for SeKyung, but if KC ended up with SeKyung at the end….. I feel that KC will never truly be happy inside. Ultimately SK will not be happy knowing that KC’s heart will always belong to InAe.

    Please let it happen this weekend that InAe will open herself to KC as a woman!!!!!!

    @ Big fan

    I’m afraid those of us who want to see a loving relationship develop between Kwang Chul and InAe might be disappointed. That is the direction I would like to see but InAe seems determined on her path for justice, both personal and national. But maybe the writers want us to think that way so they can pull a fast one at the end and make us all happy campers!

    The General’s daughter is a mess, her actions don’t surprise me at all, she’s forced the horse to water but has realized that you can’t “will” someone to love you. I feel sorry for her, she’s a victim of her father’s political aspirations.

    I think SeKyung will close her heart to KC since her biological father is and has been the source of horrific crimes against those she holds dear. It’s to KC and InAe’s credit that they treat SeKyung as family.

    Is it possible that InAe doesn’t open her heart to KC partly because she knows SeKyung loves him?

    Well, we’ll have the answers in the next couple of weeks. Enjoy this weekend’s episodes!

    One thing I dislike InAe, she is too secretive, how could she kept all the secret to herself, that is very wrong, even KC is so devoted to her and loved her with all his heart, I would be hurt too if I were him. But this is the major plot of all Kdramas, SECRET SECRET. without secret they can’t not produce the dramas, even at the end all secret will be revealed.

    I loved both episodes 32 & 33! Like you, malou1010, I loved the ending of episode 33, as well. I really couldn’t have asked for more……it’s absolute perfection! It’s as if the writer read our minds & heard our frustrations over the evil wench, IB, & to give us a peek of that much-awaited sweet revenge of IA, she gave us THIS as a starter. You’re the best, writernim! And yes, malou1010, I’m so ready to board the KC/IA ship! Just waiting for writernim to lead us there.

    Another scene which was truly a to-die-for-moment was that awesome face off between IA & PYT in the Blue House lobby. When PYT told IA with such irritating arrogance that he will make sure he collects the money that he coughed up to IA, I loved how she replied. IA, in turn, didn’t mince any words & told the abominable, low-life, evil bastard PYT, that only DOGS eat what they threw up! That scene was PURE GOLD……I absolutely loved it! And to finally finish him off, she told him point-blank that she will definitely be the one who will handcuff him. She was so incredibly cool……..I’m just loving her character so much more!

    I’m so sad EL was cut down to 37 episodes. I do hope the writer can wrap things up & give a heartwarming ending for our endearing couple, KC & IA….. HAPPY & TOGETHER, pleeeeeease, writernim! But if the writer decides otherwise (Noooooooooo!), then I don’t want KH back in IA’s life! That’s a big NO for me! KH & his furrowed brow needs to stay far, far away from IA. When he chose Yale & his bright political future over his love for IA, he definitely put the last nail in the coffin, as far as his relationship with IA goes. He doesn’t have ANY right, at all, to get her back & he deserves his creepy wife! In a way, IA’s heartbreak was a blessing from God. I believe it was His way of letting her realize He saved her from the wrong one……..because the right one He chose for her is a better man!

    I’m confident, though, that IA will never accept KH back in her life. I’d be so frustrated if the writer would do this! But if worse comes to worst, then I’d rather see IA ALONE but living happily with Esther, fulfilled & accomplished professionally. I’m such an optimist so I’m still hopeful it’ll be a HAPPY ENDING TOGETHER for KC & IA! It’s my fervent wish that IA listens to what her heart tells her, & follows her heart because her better man, KC, is just waiting for her, for the longest time, to reciprocate his feelings!

    Seriously, KC’s endless devotion to both IA & Esther, & his undying love for IA would remain forever engraved in the hearts of the viewers. I love, love, love his character so much! I just hope the writer gives this remarkale man a HAPPY ENDING he truly deserves……..together as a family with the only woman he will ever love, IA!

    Can’t wait for this weekend’s episodes? Happy thoughts only!

    malou1010 Says:

    Oh my gosh, what did just happen? Is my KC/IA ship sinking already or worse, has it finally sunk? C’mon writernim, give me a break…….my KC/IA ship has not even started sailing yet! And good grief, with just 2 episodes left, why go there at all? Why torment us KC/IA shippers? Aaaaaaargh!!!

    Quite frankly, I really feel for KC. I understand his mixed emotions……he’s hurt, disappointed, frustrated, & most of all, he felt so betrayed. He loves IA with every ounce of his being……..he was there for her every step of the way when IA’s life became bleak & unknown…….he supported & protected her, & he made sure that she would come out of the hell-hole she was in & be WHOLE again……..& most of all, he was willing to wait for her however long it takes until she’s ready to give her heart to him. He had practically given his all to IA but at that point he felt so insignificant because he could never be good enough for her, & worse, she didn’t trust him enough to share her birth secret with him. Honestly, though, I didn’t expect him to actually leave IA & really meant it! I’m just as heartbroken as KC! Writernim, you are just killing me here!

    However, I do get where IA is coming from. She doesn’t want KC’s life to be endangered again because of her. She wants to protect him so she kept it a secret & had no intention whatsoever to divulge it to either brothers. But the “bearer of bad tidings”, KH, as usual, barged in IA’s office to confirm her birth secret. The nerve of this guy! Couldn’t he use the phone, not even once, instead of just showing up unannounced? He thinks & acts as if the world revolves around him! He’s so full of himself & frankly, he annoys me no end!

    All things considered, I’m still hoping for the best for my KC/IA ship…….nope, I’m not giving up……still rooting for KC & IA till the end! So with just 2 episodes left, my ultimate happy ending wishes: KC rescues Esther & comes out ALIVE (You better be listening, writernim!)………IA finally realizes she loves KC so much that life without him in it is not worth living for; that there’s absolutely no one she could ever be with, & that she would rather be ALONE than be without KC!……….KC & IA finally end up together, living happily with Esther……….& most of all, 2014’s evilest pair to date, PYT & IB, finally get convicted for all their crimes & rot in jail, wearing the “couple blue prison uniforms” (right, jamie?)…………all these sound sooooo perfect! I’m really, really, really hoping writernim takes us there!

    Fingers crossed, Endless Love gives us nothing but the best ever HAPPY ENDING! Absolutely love this drama!!!

    Thanks! I’m glad I convinced you into watching this amazing drama. You won’t ever regret it, I assure you. LOL to your “own” version re flattery! Mmmmm…….I like yours better than the original……..it makes perfect sense! I wish you well, too. Hope we meet in other threads!

    jamie Says:

    I really love what you’re saying malou1010. It’s exactly how I feel for a HAPPY ENDING for KC & IA! And yes, like you, I’m still holding on……..still on board our KC/IA ship!

    I was truly shocked at the extent of KC’s anger & frustrations towards IA. I really thought it would blow over after some time, if not for IA’s but for Esther’s sake. Seems like he has been pushed to the limit & just couldn’t take it anymore. I know he’s hurting but I think he should have at least talked to Esther & said his goodbye. She simply adores & loves him as much as he does her so he owes her an explanation. It would certainly traumatize Esther if he just leaves without saying a word. I was a bit frustrated when he didn’t go to her birthday. Poor Esther, she’s being torn apart by this awful situation!

    I’m wondering what Esther’s present is. My gut feeling tells me it’s KC’s Jacob necklace. He treasures that necklace because it symbolizes his undying love for IA………the one thing he held on for the longest time…….the only thing which gave him the strength & will to live during his own hellish life in Japan. By giving it away to Esther whom he loves dearly, would mean he’s truly giving up on IA! My heart is aching so much for KC!

    If it is the Jacob necklace, then this is another jolt that IA needs the most. More than ever, she needs to make a decision, like RIGHT NOW. Would she allow fear to take over again? Would she continue forever denying herself that love she feels for KC? Now that she has this last chance, would she finally say what’s in her heart? There is no denying that she knows, deep down in her heart, that KC is IT for her……..he’s the ONE love she wants to keep & hold on forever! And all it takes for KC to stay is IA telling him: “Esther needs you but I need you the most because I love you too!”

    It’s never too late for IA to win back KC because despite all the hurt, anger, & frustration……..KC will always be there for IA & Esther………& that his heart will always belong to her! I’m really hoping IA would take a leap. Otherwise, in the end, she might regret the chances she didn’t take, the relationship she was afraid to have, & most of all, the decision she waited too long to make.

    I’m seriously on edge for this weekend’s last 2 episodes! But I am & will always be an optimist so I’m counting on all the HINTS writernim has been giving us KC/IA shippers. I’m hoping for a heartwarming ending for our endearing couple, KC & IA!

    I love this drama so, so, so much!

    Wow, jamie and malou 1010. You both are incredible in your analysis! This thread has been very instrumental in my enjoyment of this great show. As you know, I love this drama so much.

    I think KC had to make a definite choice to break from IA for her to realize that she truly loves him as a man, not love him as a friend. I am hoping that KC already made a choice in airport before he sees IA, that he could not leave IA….. I am still believing that IA and KC will be together.

    I am off to watch my favorite drama this weekend!

Be sure to bring along a box of tissues & clear your desk of any pointed objects including paperweights. Why? Because there are really times when you just want to beat the heck out of the evil pair, PYT & IB! Enjoy the drama & I hope to see you around in other threads. You too be well always!

    myrshada Says:

    Can’t accept the final pairing… what a big disappointment! I know that in this way is a happy ending for everybody (at the most) but… to me it feels like such a waste. Loved KC since the beginning and thought that the at first pitiful and lately annoying SK should stay at the side of the story like her half-brother.
    Ahhhhh… so irritating!

    malou1010 Says:

    Typically, I really don’t watch melodramas so I pretty much stay away from this genre, with few exceptions. But my love for Hwang Jung Eum (first & foremost!) & Jung Kyung Ho coupled with my passion for political history got me in. And oh my gosh, did I get hooked! As expected, Endless Love was totally & completely amazing! It captivated my attention & held it the entire 37 episodes. I absolutely love this drama on so many levels………well-written, brilliant acting, inspirational, insightful, heart-wrenching, & heart-warming. I am genuinely so in love with In Ae & Kwang Chul that I’ve grown attached to their characters, in such a way that somehow I feel a real bond between me & their endearing characters.

    Precisely why I’m a bit frustrated with the ending, because I wanted so much for KC & IA to have a very happy ending together with Esther in the end. Honestly, the first day after watching the final episode, I was speechless. It’s literally unbelievable because I really thought IA would finally open her heart to KC. Clearly, his enduring patience with his unconditional love & devotion to both IA & Esther pretty much epitomizes exactly what the title says…….Endless Love!

    Even now thinking about it, I do believe KC decided not to fight for IA’s love because all he ever wanted, above all else, was her happiness. He wanted her life to be everything she deserves & even if it meant having to give her up in the end, he did it for her sake. True, he married SK & probably he might even love her…….but not the way he loved IA! IA will always stay in his heart forever no matter what because there is a part of his heart that will always belong to her………& that will never ever change! Seeing him getting all excited when IA came back from the States, in contrast to seeing him getting in a pensive mood as he watched IA with KH from afar absolutely brought a twinge in my heart! By giving her up & letting her go so she could freely decide who to choose, KC proved once again that he was willing to do almost anything for her because IA means everything to him. Absolutely love KC!

    I will surely miss Endless Love! I may not agree wholeheartedly with how writernim ended this drama but I have to admit, Na Yun Sook is one brilliant writer! She has my respect & admiration. She kept me engaged until the very end & took me to a “place” I’ve never been. It was a journey I was on all the way! Great job, writernim!

    Hwang Jung Eum never ceases to amaze me with her brilliant acting. She nailed her role as In Ae! It’s such a joy to watch her act. Her acting has always been done with absolute perfection…….love her so much! And Jung Kyung Ho simply killed his role as Kwang Chul! He’s such a brilliant actor. Absolutely love HJE & JKH & hopefully, they get to do another drama together……..Rom/Com, pretty pretty please!

    To the whole team of Endless Love……..great job everybody!!!

    Hey guys, where are you? C’mon don’t tell me you two are still nursing a broken heart! I’m so looking forward to reading your comments re the final episode.

    Guess what? I found another Rom/Com to watch……Mr. Back which stars Shin Ha Kyun (loved him in All About My Romance) & Jang Nara (yaaaaaaay!). So how about it, join me in Birth Of A Beauty airing tomorrow & Mr. Back? It’ll be fun!

    @ malou

    I really enjoyed “Endless Love”, a lot, and while the ending wasn’t a surprise it did make sense. The cast was amazing — good and bad “guys” alike!

    “Mr. Back” looks really interesting, but I haven’t found a site to watch in the USA. I’ve been a fan of Han Ye-seul for a long time and will definitely watch “Birth of A Beauty” so you’ll be seeing me here. I’m pretty busy right now watching “What’s With My Family” on Viki, a lot to like and alot to gripe about, but that’s what melodrama’s are like, right?

    jamie Says:

    I’m so disappointed with how KC & IA ended up in the last episode. Seriously, my heart was just crushed! Hard as I tried, I just couldn’t figure out why IA chose KH over KC. KH betrayed her, trashed her & chose his greed for power & fame, time & again, & most of all, at that point in her life where she was at her lowest, he was nowhere to be found. KC, on the other hand, NEVER ever left her side. He stood by her & above all, he became her pillar of strength & support in her times of utter despair & desolation. I firmly believe that all relationships have ONE law……”Never make the one you love feel ALONE, especially when you are there.” And that’s exactly how KC has always been to IA for the longest time.

    You’re right, malou1010. Such a beautiful take, as always! I felt the exact same thing you’re saying about KC’s stepping aside & letting her go. He truly is a great guy! I felt his sense of resignation & acceptance, as he watched IA & KH walking away…..that the ONE love he can’t have, can be happier with someone else………& this is the one person he can’t live without but needs to let go. How can I not love KC? In a way, I’m glad he married SK. I wanted him to have someone who loves him as deeply as he loves IA…….& SK does. It’s kind of bittersweet but I’m ok with it. It sure took me a while but now I have given in. So whether KC & IA are together or apart in the end, what matters most to me is that they both have their own happy ending. But there’s no denying, I still feel so sad & so heartbroken right now!

    Nevertheless, I’m so unconditionally in love with this drama & I still hold our lady writer, Na Yun Sook, in high regard. She truly is an amazing writer. She has such a sense of people & relationships. There is depth to all her characters & imagination in the plot. Most definitely, she has this gift of building great characters & a talent for writing such a compelling storyline that fascinated me & pulled me in until the final episode.

    I absolutely loved the journey that IA underwent. It was a time of heartfelt & devastating struggles, & oftentimes, serious violence. But she persevered to pursue her dream, & ultimately, her dream became a reality. What made her character so endearing & inspirational, was that she took a strong & towering position in regards to what was right & true. IA was such a great character to root for……I simply loved her since day one!

    I will miss Endless Love so much! And when I think about this drama, I would most definitely be reminded of one of my ultimate favorite quotes……..”It always rains the hardest, on people who deserve the sun.”

    I love all the cast, especially Hwang Jung Eum & Jung Kyung Ho! Both HJE & JKH were incredibly amazing playing their roles…….they both aced their roles! You’re so right, malou1010……it’s about time we see HJE’s smile, so yes, I want her next project to be a Rom/Com! Me too, since JKH didn’t get her in this drama, I really would love to see them paired again in a Rom/Com……..& darn it, I want them to end up together this time!

    So, if anyone wants to watch a drama with an amazing storyline & a perfect cast who are all brilliant actors/actresses, then Endless Love is IT for you. It’s so worth watching!

    SPOILER Says:

    SPOILER ENDING!!!

    Now my opinion to the ending:
    The end is crap!
    Why do koreans always made a bad ending?! Im really disappionted!
    During The hole drama i was hoping that So in nae finally opens her heart to kwang chul! But what? He suddenly had a family with kim se kyung?? N So in ae came back together with han kwang hoon!wtf!

    N what about her revenge which she though about her hole life?? She couldn’t even do that cuz park young tae and the butterfly suddenly get shot!!! Wht is this nonsense?

    I really loved this drama but this ending is so bad! I didn’t expect this! I also dnt understand why they cut down 3 epis.

    Aahh im really angry now. Cuz when this drama had a few more episodes maybe there would be a happy ending. :’D

    This is just my opinion n im curious what others think about it.

    M Says:

    To SPOILER #240

    I couldn’t agree more. The ending was absolute CRAP. I watched this entire drama, and at times it was extremely TEDIOUS. That said, along with bad ratings, I see why 3 episode were cut…I’m glad they did.

    I’ve been watching Kdrama for 10+ years, and I feel like I wasted a lot of time. Lost children, fake mothers & fathers, car wrecks, cancer, nasty MIL, the list goes on & on. They’re all the same, frustrating.

    When i saw EL till epsd 36, i have think this is one of the best drama that i had ever wacth. But when i saw eps 37 ( 30 minutes before ending ) i chagge my mind; i think this is one of the worst drama that i ever seen. Because THE ENDING TOTALY RUINS ALL THE STORY. I’m wasting my time to wacthing this drama.
    I have been seen so many drama with sad ending. Its not make me frustating. But EL have dissapointed ending. Really, Really, Really dissapointed. If IA with KC its call Endelles Love.
