Having watched the end, i feel like I was watching this drama entirely wrong. I didn't see Joo Da Hae's ambition as ambition, I thought she was a money grabbing, social climbing bitch murderer and the drama was about Ha Ryu's revenge. Wrong. I was dead wrong. It was about Joo Da Hae and this ending really makes that clear. She's someone who lived her life, as the drama put it "a read moreburning flame that knew it was going to go out" she knew her life was going to be short lived and therefore gave no fucks about anything or anyone. She was basically dead and let her ambition control her. They made Joo Da Hae a victim of her own ambition and if she was merely content with where she was,which I think is the overall message of this drama - with Ha Ryu and Eun Byul, everything would have been fine. I loved this drama. I just wished Ha Ryu wasn't left with a dead daughter, a dead lover (lets face it, he loved her till the end) and alone crying on the floor of what used to be their home. It broke my heart.
I feel like for such a drama to end this way, It's such a bittersweet taste. After all he went through, not even a slightest hint of hope for happiness in his life ?
F**k, i get they can't put poney, flowers and rainbow but i don't know ... give him hope for pete's sake !
I think Da Hae was the bad lead girl who had the more merciful ending. she's read moregreedy, proud, and ready to put everyone's life at stake to succeed and in the end, this ?
