Was the demon sealed?
Yes. In the first half of “Lovers of the Red Sky” episode 16, the drama focuses on the final showdown. Ha Ram shows up but he’s barely there and the demon almost takes over him. He arrives at the location where the painters are working and disturbs them nearly ruining their plans.
However, God Samshin and Ho Ryeong step up to aid them. Mi-Soo also helps out. The demon takes his eyes back making Cheon Gi unable to see or draw, then, her father’s late spirit shows up to guide her and she finishes the painting. The demon gets trapped.
Did Cheon Gi lose her sight again?
At first, yes, she lost it while attempting to complete the painting. However, we find out towards the final minutes of the episode that she got her eyes back. It was a miracle she could see again.
Who dies in the final battle?
God Samshin dies while defending Cheon Gi and making sure the demon is held back unable to kill her while she completes the painting. She turns into a butterfly and guides him towards the painting.
Mi-Soo also gets gravely injured and passes away after defeating him.
Did Cheon Gi and Ha Ram get married? Did “Lovers of the Red Sky” have a happy ending?
Yes, “Lovers of the Red Sky” ending was a happy one, for the most part.
The couple gets married and we fast forward to five years after the events took place. The couple has also given birth to their first son who appears to be a couple of years old.
To surprise them, Crown prince Yangmyung visits them for their birthday and arrives with presents, among them is the bestowal of honor for the deceased. This means that their future generations will be able to hold high positions and carry out a normal life as they used to before things went sour.
