The 20th and final episode starts with Jin-Hoo calling a shareholder’s meeting and Jin-Hoo wants Director Choi dismissed from his position. Jin-Hoo goes up and tells everyone that Choi has been illegally giving and receiving rebates and in order to receive the rebates he manipulated the sales and embezzled company funds. Jin-Hoo has the evidence and it gets passed to out to everyone. Director Choi defends himself and says that it was necessary for him to do this and if he hadn’t then ShinHwa wouldn’t have made it this far and that the funds were never used for personal use and without the funds the business deals they made wouldn’t have happened. Jin-Hoo tells them that the funds are at a all time low and the Alberto brand was a bust. He pulls out the latest Alberto bag and tells them he bought it at the local market. He tells them that the Alberto line has not met the expected increase in sales so he and Kyung-Hee used the company’s fund by buying the product, resulting in increased sales, and the products being thrown out and some ended up in the market. He then introduces Jung-Soo and she explains she was on the Luna team but was kicked out and the bag she developed has become a success and that it is a brand of ShinHwa and the late President Do helped develop this product. That Joom Chi was what President Do had wanted an independent domestic brand, a brand that can be known worldwide. She asks everyone for their help and then they vote and the majority is in favor of dismissing Director Choi.

Jin-Hoo finds Jung-Soo and Jung-Soo asks what will happen to Director Choi and Kyung-Hee and he tells her that the shareholders and the company will prosecute them and after the investigation they will be punished. Jin-Hoo still wonder what kind of person Choi was to keep the secret that he wanted ShinHwa for 30 years. Jung-Soo tells him that is started as a simple secret but as time went by that secrecy turned him into the person he is now and thought it was okay to keep secrets and fool people. Kyung-Hee wakes up in the hospital and finds her mom sleeping there, she gets dressed and takes her car.

He asks her if her mom named her and if she knows why and she says that since she didn’t have a father, she took her mom’s last name and that the Jung-Soo is a combo of both her mom and dad’s name. He tells her that the Jung is from Hye-Jung and the Soo is from Choi Soo Ho from his name. He wonders why he couldn’t have figured out that she was his daughter and starts crying and she does as well. She tells him that the day her mom passed away they went to ShinHwa and was supposed to meet someone there and that he was that person. He tells her he saw her then and she asks why he threw them away or even try looking for them. He tells her that her mom threw him away first and told him he was standing in her way and he couldn’t hold onto her and couldn’t give up what he had and didn’t know she existed in this world and then says sorry. She tells him that she never asked about her father because she thought she would when her mom was ready but in the end her mom couldn’t tell her and that she thinks her mom never got over him.

Picture 6

Jung-Soo is with Jin-Hoo and she told him that Choi is her biological father and he is upset because he is always going against her and hurting her.

He goes and shakes his hands with Jin-Hoo and tells him that he is sorry and that he was wrong and he means it even though he lost. Kyung-Hee is at some sort of nunnery and she confesses her sins. A nun brings Kyung-Hee some food and tells her that when she is suffering she should go to her friends or family because that is why people exist for people to be together when they are suffering.

Picture 8

While Kyung-Hee is sitting on a pew Jung-Soo comes in and finds her and tells her that she came here first even though Aunt and Do-Young both wanted to come. Kyung-Hee tells Jung-Soo that she hated her because even though she was an orphan and should have been crying she was always smiling. Even though she had more than her Jung-Soo was happier with less and that made her mad. She thought that Jung-Soo just had good luck and that it didn’t belong to her so she stole it without feeling guilty.

Jung-Soo tells her that she better start learning now and that she needs to make sure she doesn’t make the people who love her suffer.

One month later Jin-Hoo has made Lee Seung Do the leader of ShinHwa. Jung-Soo is the team leader at ShinHwa working with some of her old team from before. Jung-Soo goes to visit Jin-Hoo for lunch and they talk jokingly about engagements. He tells her that Manager Kang is going to see Director Choi soon and that she should go with him and she says he told he is doing fine and that is enough. Jin-Hoo asks why she can’t forgive him and if it because of him and she says it is not. Do-Young is with Kyung-Hee and she asks her if she is going to go back to work at Sae Kyung and Kyung-Hee tells her she doesn’t deserve the position. Do-Young tells her that there is no other person that can take her position and not because she is their daughter but because he needs her and that even though she made a mistake she just needs to recognize them and not repeat it again. Kyung-Hee tells her that she wants her to scold her and punish her because she can’t forgive herself and she doesn’t know why Do-Young forgives her either. Do-Young tells her it is because she is punishing herself that she forgives her and that she believes that mother and children even if they are adopted don’t choose each other and she hugs Kyung-Hee. Manager Kang goes to see Director Choi and he is working in a field. Manager Kang tells him that he is going to be leaving for a couple of years and gives him a letter from Jung-Soo.

Picture 10

Jung-Soo tells him in the letter that she at first resented him and then having a father all of a sudden made her hesitant and she needs some time to be more comfortable. Kyung-Hee and Manager Kang are talking and he tells her that he is going to work at Red Milano now and she asks if they can be friends and that she understands his dream now. They shake on it and he invites her to visit him in Italy and she turns him down because her feelings for him are not completely gone. Jung-Soo goes to Jin-Hoo and hands her resignation letter and tells him she wants to go work at the market again because she is more creative there and they need her there. Jin-Hoo invites her out and Jin-Hoo goes and makes a bag. Jin-Hoo and Jung-Soo go out to eat and at dessert Jung-Soo is looking through her icecream for a ring and Jin-Hoo catches her. He then pretends to do some magic and when she turns back around he has a diamond necklace for her in the shape of a bag.

Picture 11

He then pulls out the bag he made and is embarrassed about how it turned out but Jung-Soo loves it. She starts moving her things to the new bag and Jin-Hoo tries to stop her and tells her not to use it and that he will make a new one.

Picture 12

Jung-Soo goes back to her old office and starts cleaning it when designers start coming for a meeting. She addresses the group and talks about how they are all there to make bags and together they will make a product with passion and love and this is how the final episode ends.

Picture 13

The actual ending was a bit flat! I was expecting more drama between Jung-Soo and Kyung-Hee over Do-Young. I mean there was no ending for Jung-Soo and Do-Young? Did she end up living with Do-Young? was she adopted by her? or was her father now supposed to replace all of that? Did Kyung-Hee change? and was there actually something wrong with her heart? I mean it is kinda weird that Kyung-Hee and Do-Young are talking about being mother and child, I mean she grew up longer in the care of her real parents! I mean she should have been reconciling with them and have a stronger connection with them seeing as her real mother really loves Kyung-Hee and wants the best for her.  I didn’t feel sorry for her at all throughout the series! even when she was crying and sad, she never learned and just kept trying to tear Jung-Soo down. Jung-Soo pretty much rose above all that and was more focused and using the talents that she had and believing in herself. I was fine with the ending of Jung-Soo and Jin-Hoo, they ended up together and seem happy. I thought it was so funny that Jin-Hoo was now the one making the luxury products instead of Jung-Soo making them for him. It is a little weird that Director Choi was working in a field like that is a drastic change of careers! I wonder if his wife was with him because she seemed like she wouldn’t want to move out in the country and have a cut in her expense account? He seemed like a pretty terrible husband to her though! I have enjoyed this drama and thought it was pretty interesting! of course I had more hopes for the ending but it was still satisfying to me and I would have watched again! Thanks everyone for voting on the poll! Ofcourse Jin-Hoo has one the first spot for Jung-Soo’s heart, but I have to say Kyung-Hee to feel pain was only 13 votes away from winning!! I am not sure if Kyung-Hee felt adequate pain in the series to the amount that she caused but she sure squirmed a lot!

She tells Kyung-Hee that even if she agrees Jin-Hoo won’t. Do-Young is talking to Kyung-Hee and they are talking about the adoption and she asks for the two of them to understand each other especially if Jung-Soo comes to live with them.

Director Choi gets the news that the engagement is over and comes to the conclusion that Kyung-Hee changed her mind. Aunt comes to visit Kyung-Hee at work and is concerned about the breaking of the engagement and she tells her not to worry and just to leave her alone. Kyung-Hee talks to her adoptive parents about the break up and she just agrees with them that she rushed into it.

Picture 4

Kyung-Hee and Jung-Soo are both getting ready for the launch of the line. Jung-Soo isn’t having a runway and is going with the concept of house party. Jung-Soo asks Manager Kang if he is going to New York after the launch because of her and he tells her that he has some unfinished business in New York and needs to do it before it is too late. 

Picture 5

Jin-Hoo picks up Jung-Soo and takes her to a clothing shop and buys her an outfit for the launch party.

Picture 7

Manager Goo gives Ah-Ra the address of where Jung-Soo’s launch party is happening. Jung-Soo finds out that the place they were going to have their launch was booked and they can’t use it now. At the office Jung-Soo decides they will have to look for a new date and location and then Jin-Hoo comes in and tells them they have booked a hotel for them because he had some connections. Just as they are going to phone everyone about the changes Ah-Ra phones her and tells her that Kyung-Hee was behind them losing their location for the launch show. Jung-Soo then tells everyone to send their models to the same place ShinHwa’s launch show is. ShinHwa has their launch show and as soon as it is over everyone leaves because they hear another launch show is happening.

Picture 6

Everyone goes down to check out Jung-Soo’s show and it is happening outside the hotel. 

Picture 8

In the news the Alberto brand looks bad because the Joom Chi brand was domestic and not international like Alberto. Jung-Soo and Manager Kang go to Charlotte store and find out that they were chosen to launch their line of purses. The two of them celebrate when they are alone. Jin-Hoo takes Jung-Soo and surprises her with a cake made of one of her purses to celebrate her getting the purses in Charlotte store.

Picture 9

She hugs him and he asks why she is being like that and she says it is because she can’t do anything for him and he tells her not to worry and that he has not given up on the shareholder’s meeting. Jin-Hoo goes and talks to different people and he tells them he wants to make their own domestic line of purses as a brand. Kyung-Hee gets the news that the Alberto brand is not doing well in stores and they think that the reason is that the consumers are looking less at the brand and more at a new product and quality. Kyung-Hee gets a call from Spain and the man is upset the product isn’t doing well. Kyung-Hee then calls Director Choi and goes to speak to him and she tells him that she is his daughter but just didn’t tell him because she resented him and he apologizes for not knowing that she is his daugher.

Picture 10

Do-Young tells Director Choi’s wife all about the switch up with Kyung-Hee and Jung-Soo. Kyung-Hee then asks him for a favor to manipulate the sales of the Alberto brand to do that she needs the product to stop circulating in the market and she will take care of it and he agrees. The Director of the Charlotte store received the Alberto shipment and then returned it. Jin-Hoo receives a package and it contains the account of Director Choi, and Jin-Hoo calls Lawyer Shin. Lawyer Shin meets him and he shows him the account and tells him that they are illegal transactions. The driver of the shipment takes the boxes of bags out and is going to burn them but then stops. In the stores a woman asking a sale clerk about something and is shown the Alberto product that should have been burnt. At work Manager Goo tells Kyung-Hee that the President has ordered someone to have the products recalled because the Alberto bag is being circulated in the market and is 100% authentic.

Picture 11

Jin-Hoo calls Lawyer Shin and tells him to set up the shareholder’s meeting right away. Kyung-Hee goes to see Director Choi and she tells him about the rumors of Alberto bag being circulated and Director Choi wonders if Jin-Hoo has caught on and that is why he is calling a shareholder’s meeting. He tells her to deny anything to the Alberto company and reassures her that he won’t let anything happen to him or her because she is his daughter. Jin-Hoo and Lawyer Shin go through the account and makes a presentation from it for the board meeting. Jin-Hoo meets Director Choi before going into the meeting and Director Choi puts him down and Jin-Hoo tells him that he is protecting ShinHwa.

Picture 12

So how many fathers does Kyung-Hee need? 3? isn’t that a bit excessive!! Wow she know how to manipulate people! but I wished that his wife would have told him sooner so that the plan wouldn’t work for Kyung-Hee. I mean I think Director Choi is the most suitable father for her out of the three because he is just as ruthless as her. It was really dumb of her to sabotage Jung-Soo’s launch party because she fought back and now Kyung-Hee’s Alberto line is failing! I wonder who is helping Jin-Hoo by sending him those spending accounts? One of the board members? Jung-Soo and Jin-Hoo are finally together for an episode but we don’t get to see too much of them because they are soo busy. The cake he bought for her was really cute. Poor Manager Kang he declared his love for her but it was in a really cute way! I mean he didn’t make her feel as burdened because he didn’t do it face-to-face but he still gave her the option to share her feelings about him which she didn’t do but I thought it was considerate. The actual business side of things I do not always know what is going on and how they could even manipulate the numbers? I mean they won’t have the money to show for the bags being bought if they are not being circulated? I don’t quite understand that but I am very interested to see what Jin-Hoo and Lawyer Shin have figured out about Director Choi!

He tells her that there is no more installments and that he wants a full payment and then kisses her and this is how the 18th episode ends.

Picture 6

Wow 2 kisses in one episode I think this has reached the climax of the drama!! and I was pleasantly surprised that they actually looked like they were kissing each other and enjoying it! They will actually making out for their first kiss!! I was wondering how long they were going to be apart because their wasn’t too many episodes left for them to be together! I thought it was interesting when Do-Young was reflecting on the 2 different relationships with the girls it shows that Jung-Soo is selfless because she was just happy to have Do-Young better and in Korea and meanwhile Kyung-Hee is begging to live their with them and doesn’t really know how to make a real connection with Do-Young. Finally we get to understand why she wanted the design rights! and I think it is pretty sweet that she was doing all that for Jin-Hoo to be able to be with her and then he goes and gets engaged! how devastating! but I mean she should have just told him when the President died because I mean the contract isn’t really there anymore and she should have gone to comfort him! I think that would have been the best thing she could have done for him because he is all alone! I wonder what diabolical plan Kyung-Hee has for the engagement with Jin-Hoo? Is she going to somehow force him to marry her even though they plan on eventually calling off the engagement? and poor Manger Kang barely gets to even put the moves on Jung-Soo before everything is revealed to Jin-Hoo and they make up!! Sorry this recap is so late! I will keep working on the next ones !!

Picture 3

So Director Choi has finally figured out that he has a daughter!! but now he will think it is Kyung-Hee! ugh and Kyung-Hee will try to hide the truth from her again! It is pretty exciting that Jung-Soo is starting her own company and that Manager Kang is joining them! I thought that maybe Jin-Hoo will be joining them now that he was not allowed to be President! but now he wants to get engaged with Kyung-Hee! I am not sure how that is going to help? The board members would want this to happen and make him president because he is making connections between the 2 companies? I am so happy that Jung-Soo and Do-Young have been reunited! I have been waiting for that to happen for so many episodes!! but they do not know what to do with Kyung-Hee! I mean couldn’t they just get an apartment for her or something? Thanks everyone for voting! lol it seems like Jin-Hoo and Jung-Soo ending up together is the most wanted, but I have to say Kyung-Hee feeling pain has a strong number of votes as well!!
