Yes, they did.
He ends up dying, his heart condition was still severe, he dies in Yeon Woo’s arms peacefully.
That was hopelessly CUTE. IF I had to describe this drama in one word it would be this: CUTE.
The couple chemistry was great, I loved the secondary characters stories too. It was typical in certain places but still so much fun to watch. Se Young again nails it and Bae In Hyuk did a great job for his first ever 1st male leading role. He shined here.
Thank you to the cast and crew of this adorable drama for your hard work.
