My personal thoughts- written by Jass K.
It’s been a wild ride, 47 episodes, and a year later, what could be labeled one of the most talked-about kdramas in recent memory finished it’s run. Thank you to everyone who has worked hard on this drama, I hope you take some time off and recharge, you’ve done well.
It is sad that the 3rd season couldn’t live up the 2nd or 1st season ratings. This doesn’t mean it was a failure because it wasn’t, but it does tell you what you need to know about stretching a plot needlessly for money. I was expecting the ratings for this season to be much better and I believe I wasn’t the only one who thought they’d be that. It was a broken ending, that’s for sure.
I am still of the mindset that this drama should’ve ended with two seasons, because then, at least it would have ended on a high, both in terms of ratings success and viewers’ satisfaction.
I hope next time SBS greenlights a popular kdrama for 3 seasons, it thinks things through and makes enough preparations as to not rush it or make it pretty apparent that it’s solely a cash grab.
