I don’t like the ending Cha die too easy at the end especially by Jung Pal. also, Cha is the main character of the movie if he dies no need to start season 3.
i totally agree with you danny! it seems the creatives copped out and just killed the main protagonist for shock value! i felt shortchanged after watching all 16 episodes.
Kudos to Choi Min sik for his fine acting – Cha Moo sik so relatable, bit short of adorable. Every hurt, every tear… felt by this viewer.
Hope in Choi Min sik next project, he gets to live and be happy for a change. : )
