Drama Finales Mean They’re Over, But Never Gone!


You’ve tried to avoid thinking about that moment, but the finale is finally here. Your favorite show is coming to an end, and there’s nothing you can do about it. We understand that feeling. Trust us, we’ve all been there.

Instead of a sad face, pick yourself up and do a marathon! Watch all the episodes from the beginning again. Or maybe you’re one of those people who saved this show until it was over so you could enjoy the episodes back-to-back in one sitting. No waiting, biting your nails, and twiddling your thumbs for that whole week before new episodes are released. We approve of this approach, too!

Whichever option you choose, here’s our list of recent and upcoming finales:

Discovery of Love: Finale aired October 7



Kang Tae Ha (played by Eric) and Han Yeo Reum (played by Jung Yoo Mi) were in a past relationship that lasted five years and currently are working on a collaborative interior design project. Meanwhile, Yeo Reum and Nam Ha Jin (played by Sung Joon) have been dating for almost two years and are close to making it official. Whom will Han Yeo Reum end up with from this love triangle?

Surplus Princess: Finale aired on October 9



Even mermaids have trouble finding love! Kim Ha Ni (played Jo Bo Ah) has to find her true love within 100 days so she can remain human. If you’ve been following along, it’s come down to two people – Si Kyung, the skilled chef whose cold heart has started opening up, or Hyun Myeong, the unemployed guy who’s kind and warmhearted. Who is her true love?

Lovestore at the Corner: Finale aired on October 10



Nikki Hsieh had to play double duty in “Princess’ Stand In,” but she’s only acting in the role of Du Ke Xing in this drama. It’s been a twisted story of amnesia, heartbreak and new love. Has bonding over her lost sister helped Ke Xing find a happily-ever-after with Shu Lei (played by Lee Wei)?

Plus Nine Boys: Finale aired on October 11



You can’t go wrong with male eye candy — in this case, model-turned-actor Kim Young Kwang and BTOB’s Sung Jae. As the single men in the household begin dating, they soon learn how hard it is to navigate the rocky waters of relationships. Which couple will make it to the finish line?

Jang Bo Ri Is Here: Finale aired on October 12



Everyone has been cursing Min Jung (played by Lee Yoo Ri) for being evil and horrible in this drama (well, that’s just good acting!), so you must be curious how this all plays out. Will Bo Ri (played by Oh Yeon Soo) finally triumph over Min Jung? After more than 50 episodes, check out the exciting ending to this No. 1 weekend drama!

My Secret Hotel: Finale aired on October 14


















An ex-husband, a murder mystery and a potential male suitor are a lot to handle for Sang Hyo (played by Yoo In Na)! She has the poise to handle anything, but can she finally decide between Hae Young (played by Jin Lee Han) and Sung Gyeom (played by Nam Goong Min)?

Love Myself or You: Finale airs today (October 17)


















While romantic feelings between Zi Jie (played by Jasper Liu) and Kai Qi (played by Puff Guo) were on hold for a few episodes due to family issues, it looks like it’s back on track! He still wants Kai Qi back as a chef at Figaro Cuisine, but she’s already agreed to help Hao Wei (played by Jolin Chien) with his new restaurant venture. What will happen next?

Mama: Finale to air on October 19


















Death is always scary, especially when considering the loved ones being left behind. Seung Hee (played by Song Yoon Ah) wants to make sure her son is taken care of after she dies, but will Tae Joo (played by Jung Joon Ho) and Ji Eun (played by Moon Jung Hee) become his new parents?

The Night Watchman: Finale to air on October 21



Lee Rin (played by Jung Il Woo) and Moo Seok (played by Yunho) have been battling for the heart of Do Ha (played by Go Sung Hee). But for Lee Rin, the appearance of a mysterious court lady who might know the secret behind his mother’s death is a major distraction. Our favorite boys are leaving the small screen again, but hopefully not for too long!

Once you’re done with these dramas, you can look forward to a few promising upcoming dramas:

Incomplete Life: Starts today (October 17)



With Im Si Wan (from “Triangle”), Kang So Ra (from “Doctor Stranger”) and Kang Ha Neul (from “Angel Eyes” and “To the Beautiful You”), this young cast is definitely easy on the eyes. See how they deal with growing up and working their way up in the corporate world!

Modern Farmer: Starts on October 18























You usually wouldn’t say rock band and rural farming in the same sentence, but we can make an exception for hotties Lee Hong Ki (from “You’re Beautiful”) and Park Min Woo (from “Flower Boy Ramyun Shop”). Can they make a living in this new profession or will they escape back to their old life in Seoul?

Aim High: Starts on October 24




















Four close college friends dreamed about career success, but their tight relationships crumble after a huge fight just before graduation. What happens as they cross paths years later after following four different life experiences and careers? Catch Lego Li from “In A Good Way” and Chris Wang from “Inborn Pair” and “Love Family” in this upcoming Taiwanese drama.

Pinocchio: Starts on November 12



We bet you’ve had this on your radar since it was announced that Park Shin Hye (from “Heirs” and “Flower Boy Next Door”) and Lee Jong Suk (from “Doctor Stranger” and “I Hear Your Voice”) would be starring opposite each other in this drama. Will these 20-something rookie reporters be able to make it in the broadcast news industry in a busy city like Seoul?

Mischievous Kiss 2: Love in TOKYO: Starts on November 24



The highly anticipated second season of the hit series “Mischievous Kiss: Love in TOKYO” series is finally here! A teaser episode was already released in September and followed the newlywed couple on their honeymoon to Okinawa, but now we can’t wait for the rest of the episodes. What twists and romance will Kotoko (played by Yuki Furukawa) and Naoki (played by Miki Honoka) face this time around?
