Picture 13

 

Thank You Everyone for bearing with me as I have been slow on these recaps! I have been having some personal issues which has stopped me from writing these on time!

 

So this drama is finally over! I have enjoyed this drama but I have found it to be too long! I am sure that it could have been shortened to even 10 or 16 episodes it just was not necessary. This drama was a very sweet drama with the love between Woo-Hyun and Seul-Bi and it was nice but it also had dark elements to this story with death and the character change of Sung-Yeol. Sung-Yeol’s character throughout this drama was frankly just strange at the beginning he was normal a little cold and then he warmed up, then went crazy and evil and ended with him being a playboy and really happy!? it was kinda strange and I am not sure if I really liked his character at all!! I am satisfied that it had a happy ending and that it worked out for everyone! but I mean it seems kinda unrealistic that three guys would all love her and 2 would go crazy and do evil things because she didn’t love them back! One thing that was weird is the logic in this drama with her being an angel and Sunbae saving her? how? and why did he become human? What did she think she was after she lost her memories? wouldn’t she realize she had none? What happened to the timer on her wrist? It was a strange wrap up and they sure milked her getting her memories back in this episode they literally waited for like the last 5 minutes!! One thing I have to say is that I definitely found Sung-Yeol’s dad to be really attractive! I really liked his looks and personality!!

Also just to note that Woo-Hyun was won the vote for who Seul-Bi should end up with, with about half the votes!!

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.

Director Choi then recalls his incidents with Jung-Soo and pulls out an old picture of her mother. 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. Aunt wakes up and sees her gone and phones Mr. Woo and he comes down to the hospital, they try her cell but it is in the room. Aunt begs him to find Kyung-Hee because she has a bad feeling.

Director Choi is waiting in his car for Jung-Soo and sees her walking by and he stops her. They sit to talk and she asks if he knows her uncle and mother and he says he does. 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.

Picture 7

Director Choi is leaving ShinHwa and shaking hands with his coworkers. 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 to stop being evil and selfish and Kyung-Hee tells her that she doesn’t know how anymore. 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!

 

Sprout Episode 11 (Final) Summary and Review October 18, 2012

Sprout episode 12 starts off with Souhei’s wind chime ringing and it is summer one year later. Miku narrates that it has been one year since Souhei has left, she is getting ready for school and her hair is longer.

Miku is walking to school and she is thinking that in the past year nothing has happened that she would have to talk about.

Miyuki is getting asked out by a student and she says sorry and walks away. Takeru and Arata overhear this and they tease each other saying they should ask her out.

Miku, Fumiko and Ami are walking together and they pass Souhei and Hayato and they both reply hello politely. She narrates that they both went back to being normal classmates.

At soccer club Souhei is the new captain and he tells everyone he will do his best, Sou is in the club. Haruka comes over and she says she has just come to watch the new captain speech and chides him for making it so short. He bows and she walks away.

 


Miku is with her friends and Ami is being all cute on the phone and Fumiko asks if Miku still doesn’t feel like dating and Miku replies that its not like she is popular. Fumiko calls her out and says it because she can’t forget her fated person who is Souhei, she flashbacks to when she held hands with her fated person. As they walk they see the soccer club and Fumiko asks Miku if she thinks that one day she will be able to unite with her fated one someday and Ami asks if she still believes in her eternal first love. Miku says she was wrong that Souhei wasn’t her fated person and that is why they won’t be united.

Souhei watches the girls walk past during practice and Takeru notices and calls him back. Takeru and Arata are talking after practice and they figure that Souhei liked Miku the whole time and that is why he broke up with Miyuki.

Naoharu, Kiyoka and Miku’s parents are preparing to eat outside and Miku’s mom says that it has been awhile. Kiyoka is remembering about coming there last year and she says it s a bit lonely.

Miku comes home and sees Souhei’s bike, Souhei is eating BBQ and Miku’s mom says that if she knew Souhei was coming she would have made more chicken, Naoharu says sorry but he suddenly came over. Miku is with them and her dad notices that this is the first time that Souhei has come over since he left. Miku thinks that even if its like this she is happy, Souhei notices that the wind chime is up and Miku nods that she did.

Souhei gets his bike and is walking out, Miku comes running after him and says that she will walk him to the corner. As they walk Miku tells him congratulations on being captain and she thinks that there is a lot that she wanted to talk about the words won’t come out very well. Souhei says that he is glad to see everyone doing well and she agrees and is glad he is good too. He says bye and she says this is the first going to separate homes, he acknowledges and then says he is going to go. He bikes away and Miku watches and thinks that they can’t go back to the summer when Souhei was here.

Miku is walking in her uniform and meets Miyuki and the stop to sit on a bench. Miku says that it has been awhile since they talked like this, since there sleepover. Miyuki asks if she still likes Souhei, Miku just laughs.

Hayato is waiting in the school and Souhei comes in asking what he wanted to talk about. Hayato asks why Souhei doesn’t go out with Miku, because he likes her.

Miku says that it isn’t that she likes Souhei and that ever since he stopped boarding at her house they have been just like classmates. Miyuki tells her that she is a really bad liar.

Souhei replies that he doesn’t really like Miku, Hayato says that he doesn’t have to lie anymore and to hurry and confess.

Miyuki tells her that at that time she wanted to be Miku and was jealous but now she doesn’t want to be her because she stopped time one year ago and that it is probably the same for Souhei.

Souhei says that it is fine the way it is because he thought he would be with Miyuki forever he wasn’t able to persist with those feelings. Hayato asks if he thought that Miyuki would have been happy like that.

Miyuki asks if she would be okay if Souhei would go out with someone else and she replies that it is something for Souhei to decide and Miyuki replies that she is one to talk and asks why does he think she broke up with Souhei.

Hayato asks Souhei if he would be fine if Miku went out with someone else and Souhei says yeah if she was happy. Hayato asks if he is really thinking like that and he says yeah and Hayato grabs him.

Miyuki grabs Miku and tells her to take one step forward.

Hayato grabs Souhei and punches him in the face and asks him angrily if he had any idea what it felt for Miyuki to break up with him and for him to break up with Miku.

Miyuki says that if she doesn’t it won’t end for her either.

Hayato says to let him be glad that he broke up with Miku and if she doesn’t become happy he won’t be able to feel that way either.

Miku nods to Miyuki and runs away, Miyuki smiles.

Souhei walks out of the gym.

Miku is running down the road and having flashbacks of Souhei. She runs up the steps to the school and trips and hurts her knee, she sits down. A hand appears in front of her and she sees Souhei and grabs his hand and she stands up. She says she likes him and have always liked him. He says Miku and goes in for a hug and tells her that he likes her twice. He then says that he has finally said it, they put there foreheads together. Miku narrates that her love and Souhe’s love overlapped for the first time.


Miku and Souhei are holding hands and walking, shots of the school and them and plants sprouting. She thinks no matter when she can’t let go and if its now she can strongly put into words.

Miku and Souhei go to her house and announce they are home and she thinks my fated person and this is how the final episode ends.

I was so shocked that after one year Miku and Souhei was not really talking or having to do anything with each other. At first I felt sad and was really wondering how this series was going to end and was hoping that it wasn’t going to suck!! I loved that Miyuki and Hayato both had a talk with them and set them straight. I liked that they were on the same page and the switched between scenes to show the different sides. I really felt like Hayato especially was being used in the relationship to help figure out Miku’s feelings which is soo sad for him. I found it odd that they never talk about her fainting and him helping her to the nurse’s office and I mean would it really be that hard to even ask him. I guess they wanted to keep it ambiguous to hide who her real fated one was and I guess the scene where he gives her his hand is supposed to mean that he was the one who originally helped her.

The manga was really different from this drama, they really developed the characters of Naoharu and Kiyoka much more in the manga and I kinda feel a little sad they weren’t given more of a story line. I liked them as a group and feel sad that they didn’t spend more time together. I really liked this one part in the manga when Souhei had left the house and one day they text each other about supper and Souhei still gets the text but he feels sad that he doesn’t get to be there anymore. I would have really liked this to be a part of the drama!! oh well!!

Another interesting thing is that Hayato was a different type of character in the manga and so therefore it really made the drama a lot different and it was just a surprising when things would happen. I did not mind this change and instead really enjoyed it better than the manga.

I really loved this series and thought that it was really well done. I felt that the relationships and feelings that were expressed in this drama was really realistic and the emotions felt so real. I thought it was a really grown up story even though it was targeted for teens it really was the best well down drama I have seen for a long time. I really enjoyed my time with this drama and I hope everyone else did!! thanks for reading and supporting me!!

Oh and Hayato won the vote!! He got 62.5% of the votes!! yikes poor Souhei he really couldn’t compete with the handsome Hayato!! I guess if I had one complaint it would be that Miku didn’t get to be with Hayato!! but I mean Souhei is her fated one so who can really argue with that?? I mean we should be looking at the inside not the outside!! 🙂 right?
