If someone asks to describe this drama in one word. PERFECT is my choice of word. Yes, it had its flaws and everything. Nonetheless, the hard-work done by the cast and crew was marvelous. I loved every single thing. The writing, acting, chemistry, psychics, biology, direction, osts and English songs, you name it and I will be clapping my hands in glee. To think that I had no intention of watching this makes me double happy that I gave this drama a chance and I have no regrets whatsoever.

Jae Yul calls Hae Soo’s mom. He tells her that he will persuade her to leave. Jae Yul shows Hae Soo hoe well his books are selling. He tells her, he will be a guest on the radio show. Hae Soo thinks it’s a good idea and ignorant people will be able to differentiate between a criminal who feels no guilt and a schizophrenic patient who is hurting. Jae Yul asks her to take the leave she always wanted. Hae Soo’s face falls. She asks if they are breaking up again? He tells her, love is not all about sacrifice it’s also about accomplishing something. He asks her to forget about him and not to call him because he won’t pick.

Jae Yul is being discharged for the day because of the broadcast. He knows Hae Soo is leaving. As usual the famous author gets the crowd. A school boy asks for his autograph. He is not mysterious boy. Jae Yul’s fan murmur that he doesn’t look ill. Maybe he faked so his books could sell. Jae Yul pretends he never heard them. The broadcast goes fine. The host asks him to say his signature goodbye because his fans are demanding it. Jae Yul takes a different route. He introduces himself and says he is fighting with schizophrenia. Which is a curable illness. He has to have hope for his loved ones. In the end he dedicates the good-bye to himself. Because he has always said goodbyes to others and none to himself. So, he wants you to ask yourself, if you are really fine and tell goodbye to yourself. He signs off by saying, goodnight Jang Jae Yul. Everyone is listening to the broadcast. Soo Kwang looks in the mirror and says goodnight to himself and starts kissing the mirror. So Nyeo, where are you? Your boyfriend has gone crazy. He is kissing himself.

Hae Soo is in Japan. She tells Jae Yul that she visited the places they went together and now she is coming back to Seoul. She is sure he hasn’t forgotten about her. Hae Soo comes back to the shared house. Dong Min and Soo Kwang don’t even bother taking a good look at her. Instead of surprising them, she is surprised by their behavior. The kitchen is a mess. She takes a glass of water and Jae Yul takes it from her. He tells her she is looking more pretty and goes back to his room. Hae Soo has no idea what’s going on anymore.
Hae Soo goes to Jae Yul’s room and asks about his, I don’t care attitude. Jae Yul clarifies that it’s because he thought about her every day. He tells her, he missed her and can he kiss her. Yes, of course why not. They kiss and Dong Min and Soo Kwang come with the puzzle they were making before. It says, they love Hae Soo and Jae Yul was waiting for her. Instead of leaving they sit on the bed and watch them. Jae Yul breaks the kiss and asks them to leave. Hae Soo can’t wait for them to go and kisses Jae Yul again.

She looks at the pregnancy test result and its positive. Jae Yul sleeps on his bed and she lies beside him. Seems like Hae Soo is grumpy usually in the morning. Jae Yul asks what is it this time. She reminds him that five weeks ago she told him not to do it, if he doesn’t have the condom and shows the test result. Jae Yul quietly takes it with him. Hae Soo calls him honey. And we look the room is decorated with their wedding pictures. YAY
Hae Soo and Jae Yul are living in the shared house. Jae Yul tells Dong Min and Soo Kwang about it. They are happy for him but Hae Soo is angry. Jae Yul gives an excuse that Hae Soo looked pretty that day. Hae Soo takes the water hose and sprinkles water on them.

Dong Min is not happy with the partner his ex is choosing and they argue about it. They decide to fight tomorrow. So there won’t be any grudges left. Hae Soo is angry because her PhD is going to be delay because of Jae Yul. She doesn’t want him in the room and tells him to sleep with Soo Kwang. A second later she changes her mind and calls her husband back.
Time to throw some tomatoes to forget the grudges. They all throw at each other and in the end at us too. Yup the tomatoes hit the camera.
Hae Soo and Jae Yul light a candle and pray and not to forget the kiss. Jae Yul narrates that just like that the light continued to lit in the cave. It is lit because of the lonely people who live outside the cave. For those who feel lonely, there is someone who has a candle lit for them. So never think you are alone and signs off by saying goodnight Jang Jae Yul.

They push Hae Soo and Jae Yul asks them not to push his pregnant wife and he will give his sign later as this is his private time. Hae Soo asks what would happen if he loses his fans. Jae Yul doesn’t mind as he has Hae Soo. They talk about having another kid after this one. Hae Soo asks if he wants to fight and they agree on having three.
and they lived happily ever after with lots of kids. Mysterious boy never came back but Jae Yul still thought about him from time to time. It was not easy to erase someone but Hae Soo was there. Don’t ask me why I started writing my own story.
Beautiful, perfect. I’m in tears. When will such a drama come again?
I’m sad about one thing. Jae Beom didn’t get Dong Min’s ex. Oh well, maybe she will realize his love for her.
The moral of the drama for the life is not to lose hope no matter what happens.
So my future husband I know you will find me. Don’t you worry I’m going to light a candle for you every day.
Goodnight Miss Khan ^__^
