Yet, not everyone had positive thoughts about the finale. An ongoing debate in Korea was on the “Love Line” between Nam Haeng Son’s brother Nam Jae Woo (Oh Eui Sik), and her best friend, Kim Yeong Joo (Lee Bong Ryun).
After the two officially became a couple, the pairing was officially revealed to Nam Haeng Son…
In the closing scenes of the finale, it was revealed that Kim Yeong Joo was pregnant, which happened before the duo’s marriage.
Korea is still very traditional with views of marriage and pregnancy, with many believing that someone should be together by law before bringing a child into the world. So, it wasn’t too surprising that Korean netizens had mixed reactions to the scene.
- “I mean, do they have to make everyone in the drama a couple for them to be happy?”
- “What’s this?”
- “Uh… what is this?”
- “What did I just watch?”
- “What is this?”
- “What is this? This is such a reach.”
- “Seriously, what is this?”
While Korean netizens continued to voice their negative opinions on the outcome of the love line, some international fans shared their anger about the lack of story development in the final episodes.
While Nam Hae Yi was in the hospital, netizens were shocked when her real mother came back after ten years in Japan. Despite being away for so long, the mother came back and tried to act as if everything was normal, irritating fans with her character.
While many thought Hae Yi was doing it to show her mom’s true colors, the theory wasn’t shown through her actions. She seemed genuinely upset when her mom left, with many thinking Hae Yi was going to leave to ensure Nam Haeng Son wouldn’t be manipulated by her older sister.
Although both theories would’ve been excellent, fans shared their anger that the story wasn’t finished or explained properly after the mother left.
When the series ended, netizens were warmed by the final scenes where Hae Yi seemingly cements her love for Nam Haeng Son as her “mom”…
But many felt cold about the lack of story development and how many missed opportunities they had to really create something special and emotional out of the storyline between Hae Yi, Nam Haeng Son, and the mother.
shame how lazily the writer handled the exit of the *bad guy* but what matters anyway is happy ending for all! i will miss this family 🥺🫂#CrashCourseInRomance #CrashCourseInRomanceEp16 pic.twitter.com/wzN4NqrVYg

i honestly didnt understand the need for hae-e's bio mom to return and make so many unnecessary nuisances 🙄 and there wasnt a proper reconciliation bw hy & hs after all the mess bio mom did, just all of a sudden next day they're back to normal, big deal #CrashCourseInRomanceEp16

but there were some parts that felt unsettling; it’s how they:-
•never address haeyi’s behaviour change abt going to japan after her mom left
•forced connection bw geonu & su-a after haeyi accepts sungjae
•quickly buried mr. ji’s topic so fast & act like nothing happened

I'm a little shocked over how there was no explanation of haeyi randomly wanting to move to Japan. Her behaviour to her aunt and uncle was also unnecessarily rude. Once her mom dipped she didn't even apologize for or explain her actions. #CrashCourseInRomance
