She drops her book and sees some feet, she looks up and sees Tae-Joon and they hug. He asks if she was well and she nods and they hug again and this is how the last episode ends!!
What a touching last episode it was very good!! Tae-Joon and Jae-Hee’s love for each other was really cemented in this episode and believable. I am so happy that he didn’t chase after her though and he fulfilled his own dream which was also hers. They were both so sweet to each other and I am happy that they got a happy ending. This episode really wanted to make me cry and the scene that did it was when her whole dorm came to see her off and encouraged her!! I want to cry again just thinking about it!! I am sad that Eun-Gyeol didn’t find anyone for him and is still hung up on Jae-Hee who he will never have. Seung-Ri and Ha-Na are soo cute together, I love that he tries so hard for her and she secretly loves it.
The only thing that confuses me is what happened to Hyun-Jae? is he going to the olympics? obviously Tae-Joon is going to the olympics but why did it take him a whole year to come visit her? I mean couldn’t Jae-Hee have been able to go to another school in Korea and stay closer to him and Eun-Gyeol? I think there could have been a better game plan than the one that they chose.
Thanks everyone for joining me on the journey of To The Beautiful You!! it has been a lot of fun!! I will miss these characters it has been a very well made drama!! It had a perfect amount of drama, comedic situations, romance and friendships. I would highly recommend this drama to anyone! Oh and Tae-Joon wins the poll of course!! thanks for voting and reading!!
