Once he reads the letter, he cries. His mother tells him to forget the past, to let go and to stop hurting so much and seeking revenge. He follows her advice and stops what he was doing.

This happens as In Ha is being interrogated and he lashes at the prosecutor for arresting him. He then presents him Mo Gi-Jun, who had not died, he turned on him once he almost died because In Ha wanted him dead. Tae Oh had met with Mo Gi-Jun and convinced him to turn on him considering how he wanted him dead.

He grabs In Ha by the collar and asks if he’s ever considered him a friend or just a dog. In Ha says if he’s a dog, he should’ve remained a loyal one till the end. In Ha is screwed.

“The Impossible Heir” ending- final thoughts

So… that’s a wrap. I was legitimately surprised by the responses to the drama across the board. I mean I expected people to share their thoughts but not to this degree, I often see people defend more than this. They were sometimes merciless, but still, with good cause, there was plenty to criticize with this project.

I wanna say this is my least favorite Jae Wook project but “Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol” exists so Imma stop here.

A lot of things went wrong with this drama, this might as well be one of the worst Disney+ original kdramas made to this date. I mean some of their past projects weren’t exactly stellar but not to this degree.  

The drama struggles with many issues including the bad script writing, which I had touched on in my premiere episodes review. I am sad to say that everything I predicted turned out to be true, it is difficult to go from writing movie scripts to a 12-hour drama script. Added to this, this idea does not, and I mean DOES NOT, need to be this long.

Additionally, Hong Su-Zu received a lot of flack for her performance, but in her defense, her character was sort of set up from the get-go. I said this before in my review, the writing for her character is bad. and the actress’s performance didn’t make it better. Let us hope for her next project we see some improvement.
