That doctor, Kim Na Young, died in a car accident on her way back from Africa. Sae Byuk becomes close with the Na Young’s family after finding them. The family slowly accepts her as part of the family. Kang Ho Se and Kim Tae Poong, Na Young’s twin brother, have disliked each other since they were young kids.

    I watch this on channel 20 w/subtitles. Cablevision is the carrier. I sure do wish Hosea would get a backbone and stop letting his mother run his life.

    Vicky Says:

    I ask these questions not for myself but for my Mama who can’t sleep at night due to this show. She gets shakey when the show is going to come on. She is daily depressed over this show. So, for the person that was “mad” that I asked about the ending, saying “it was a dumb question that made her mad” why don’t you just chill out and not respond to questions that you don’t like. I am entitled to ask my questions as much as anyone else is. I won’t visit this site anymore, too many mean people!!

    Vicki Don’t have such a thin skin. Nobody is trying intentionally to be mean or belligerant. Ask all the questions you want. This site can’t afford to lose any responders who love this show. If you want to go to a mean site, visit ESPN’s blog of the Phillies vs Rays world series game. In two days there were over 9000 comments before it was closed down.

    Way to go Leg! My sentiments exactly! I hate it when Hosae just gets bulldozed by her mother and he doesn’t even explain himself. Grrrrrr! Sometimes I would think that not in all occasions keeping silent is good. Sometimes it means one is just plain stupid! In my area in the Philippines, I watch You are my Destiny in KBS World.

    Smartalec44 Says:

    Vicky Go to the top of the site. Under the production credits in blue type, click WATCH ONLINE WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES. The site mysoju.com/you-are-my-destiny/ comes up. It states that there are total episodes of 125.

    Kimmy If you have broadband connection you can go to that above site and watch You Are My Destiny or possibly go to You Tube. If you have slow dial-up like I have I don’t know.

    Vicky Says:

    Smart Alec,
    Thank you for the information. I appreciate it. I do not get this show on my tv but my Mama does. It sounds so good. I hope to see the show in its entirety one day. I hope it will be on DVD at some point.

  11. 111
    Vicky Says:

    YOU ARE MY DESTINY was not on some of the nights last week in Seattle, Washington, USA. We don’t know if we missed episodes that aired elsewhere (if it was a local pre-empting). Does anyone know? Are the people that write to this site in America? Korea? That would be fun to know. I am in Indiana, USA. My Mama is in Washington, USA.Often, episodes of the same show run ahead or behind in different countries.

    sb Says:

    has episodes 1-100 subbed, and 105 translated

  13. 113
    smartalec44 Says:

    According to this site che-cheh.com/?p=942 total episodes should be around 200+. The first episode started on May 5,2008 on KBS1 in Korea.
    It’s currently running on its 121 st episode. Last episode to be aired January 2009. Perhaps 200+ episodes in total.
    Im Yoon Ah portraying Jang Sae Byeok is just 18 years old and a member of Korean singing group GIRLS GENERATION.
    Also the baby shoes have something to do with tying in the reality that Sae Byeok is really her adopted parents real lost child.

    chaimoon Says:

    Hi Doris p Love. Ir’s good to know that someone really does read our comments on You are My Destiny. In my part of the Philippines, I watch it at KBS World on weekdays, 7:15 and ends around 8:00 pm. I am monitoring the episodes being shown and today it should be episode 101. It’s nice to know that a Korean drama like this bonds us together who are from different parts of the world. I goes beyond race and location. It is nice to go home from work and get to watch a nice family oriented drama.

  15. 115
    chaimoon Says:

    Hi Vicky! Are you a Korean residing in the USA? I appreciate your concern for your mama, that is , to be able to watch her favorite korean drama. You sure love her and the fact that you are residing far from each other, makes it a little tough right? Just cheer up. This world is composed of different types of people and that is what makes it so interesting and colorful. Smile!

    i am from india and i really enjoy watching this drama.

    chaimoon Says:

    Phila. my sentiments exactly. Sometimes it is best to say things outright and clearly so that there will be no more misunderstanding. I wish Hosae and Saebyok will express their feelings to make everything clear and final, instead of just keeping silent and be run over by everybody nasty!

  18. 118
    smartalec44 Says:

    Hosae and SaeByruk should form their own furniture company. Instead of sending SaeByruk to Russia, they ought to send Subin and her mother to a frigid concentration camp in Siberia. Maybe grandfather, the taylor in Hearts of Nineteen will come to rescue his screen wife(Subin’s mom).

    good show

  22. 122
    Phila. Soft Pretzel Says:

    The previews show Hosae visiting Subin’s father. Will Hosae chicken out again and again and not expose his true lack of feelings for Subin. Or will the S???? hit the fan and will Subin finally be humilated. It seems Subin has nine lives when it comes to averting disaster.

  23. 123
    Vicky Says:

    To Chaimoon,
    Thank you for your sweet email. My Aunt Kiu is Korean so that is why my Mama and I started watching “You are my Destiny.” Mama needs surgery but she is too upset over this show to go in to hospital. So if anyone knows anything about the ending or episodes, please say. Some places say the episodes are 125 then we see it says over 150 and some place said 200. I guess this show is made for TV so not only does no one know the ending, it hasn’t been written yet. We thought maybe it was a book or movie that was just now being shown on tv. Sure hope it has a happy ending. Looks like it is going to since they are slowly drawing them together.

  24. 124
    chaimoon Says:

    Hi Vicky! I am positive that You are My Destiny will end great since by now the producers of the drama know how well it is being received all over the world! It is bound to have a glorious ending for everyone to be happy about. They cant afford to have an ending which everybody will regret having followed it faithfully. It’s bound to be Hosae and Saebyok. Maybe Subin will end up with the doctor friend of Nayeong. Subin’s mom really creates both hateful and comic situations in this drama. She can really act! Know what I really don’t like? Subin’s eyes when she looks mean and spitelful! Grrr! For what it’s worth-my sincere regards to your mom!

    I have seen this drama from starting. This is really good.I like YOON AH’s & Park Jae Jung’s casting.I watch this drama in INDIA.

    stupidalec44 Says:

    Subin”s mom is starting to annoy me more than even Subin. I totally enjoyed watching Subin cry her eyes out after Hosae told Subin’s mom the truth. The truth shall set you free.
    Is anybody taking any bets on whether Saeybruk will end up in Russia? Will she and Hosae wind up in U.S. or will they form their own furniture company.Will North and South Korea ever be reunited like East and West Germany?

  27. 127
    Slim Says:

    I fall in love with You are my Destiny. I wash Hosae would stand up his mom and tell her that he his in love with Saebyok. Saebyok is a sweet heart she doesn’t let any break her down and I love that abour her.

    Fresh cut french fies Says:

    Im Yoon Ah as Jang SaeByuk must be on top of the world. Going from a member of a singing group to the star of a hit Korean drama. At 18 years of age, I wonder if she even finished high school.

  29. 129
    Vicky Says:

    To Chaimoon,
    Thank you for your regards to my mama. I hope you are right that with so many loyal fans of the show, they will end it on a positive note. Good logic! Thank you for your kind emails. I tend to think it will have a happy ending.

  30. 130
    chaimoon Says:

    Hi Vicky! What eps are you now in You are My Destiny? We are now in eps 113 where Saeybyok and Hosae have told both of their parents that no matter what, they are going to marry each other. At least they have the courage now. Subin is still the evil one but I am pretty sure , one against two would not do at all. Yes I am positive everything will go well even for Subin and that your mama will love the drama’s final episode. I hope she is well.

    Will there be any more english subs? In chinese it is up to 140.

    Alex Says:

    I’ve watched about six Korean Drama(Soaps) series over the past two years. I find the daily life progresses about two days between episodes. However, when they decide to end a series, the last couple of episodes cover about 5 years of life each. When a series unexpectantly ends like that I become depressed like I’m losing a family. And then like immediately going out and buying a new puppy, I commence watching a new series. It takes about a week of episodes to get acquainted with the new characters. If American soaps(dramas) can go on for years, why not the Korean dramas.

  33. 133
    Vicky Says:

    Hi Chaimoon. My mama is very upset over the show. Not sure what episode we are on. They just got broken up by the mean mother and sister. I still think this will end happily next month. I sure hope so! Do you celebrate Christmas? If so, I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas.

  34. 134
    tapan Says:

    yoona is boring. the leading guy is the worst actor i have seen in my lifetime. they should have casted oh jiho or kang jihwan. i only watch this drama for kim subin , the doctor and for yuri and taepung. most of the actors are boring and just like the saas bahu material in indian tv dramas. and i like korean dramas (only the good ones)

  35. 135
    tapan Says:

    sorry guys if i hurt you. but i think i should give my true feelings abt the drama. single daddy in love is my fav one

    How did you stumble upon this thread. This site as been pretty much inactive for months.
    We welcome new blood on to the scene whether we agree or disagree with your comments.
    Saebyuk and HoSe may be bad actors but their so CUTE.
    Subin must be a good actor because I hate her so much. Subin’s mom should have stayed married to Grandfather ,the taylor, on Hearts Of Nineteen.

  37. 137
    chaimoon Says:

    Hi Vicky! Yes we do celebrate Christmas and it is the happiest time of the year for me and my family. Sadly, I lost my mama 2 years ago that’s why I appreciate people who love their parents so much, you included. I am very positive that Hosae and Saeybeok will end up happily together. Subin will find her love with the doctor. Smile! The drama will end up with – And they live happily every after! Regards to your mama whom you love so much! Advance Merry Christmas.

    You are My Destiny is a wonderful diversion for me from my chaotic life, it has inspired me to learn the Korean language ( I am English and originally from Liverpool, England) I hear that this series is wrapping up soon and will miss it, Mom’s Dead Upset is also very endearing, I just wish they would go on like the American and British soaps.

    betty Says:

    Holly Says:

    I won’t spoil the drama, but I hate how long it drags on. It drags on much longer than expected/desired. Does anyone know around what episodes the happy ending will happen?

  45. 145
    Susan Says:

    Cannot believe that so many people watch this show! I happened upon these Korean soaps last year when flipping through the channels. I just love them. I’m learning so much about the culture and even some language. This is my third drama that I am watching. I also watch Mom’s Dead Upset on the weekends. I’m so glad that my mother-in-law was not like the women on these shows and welcomed me with open arms. Please tell me that S&H are going to get married. I had to stop watching last night I didn’t want to know if she was going to break up with him because her brother loves Yuri.

    Ermillenium Says:

    hello zer.
    i really enjoyed the movie and i was like to learn some languages too. like yobseyo, or kumawo. or seraniyo. i happened one day when my sister was watching it and i was kind to like it and now it is my favourite. after i left work, i am still running home to watch that movie. and guess what all my family were part of the movie now.
