Question of the hour: This is not really goodbye is it?
Ha Ni and her group is chosen as the winner of the contest and moreover, JK has offered them the opportunity to become interns at the company.
Hye Young convinces Ha Ni she has no time to waffle back and forth between the two guys. With her time almost up she needs to just focus on Shi Kyung and not think about anything else. Resigned, Ha Ni agrees.
Ha Ni heads out for a date with Shi Kyung but gets caught in the rain. In a panic, Ha Ni hides underneath a tree, trying as hard as she can to to protect her legs from the rain.
Hyun Myung tries to escort Ha Ni by sharing an umbralla with her but when that didn't work, Hyun Myung ends up giving Ha Ni a piggy back ride.
Hye Young's firm decision to treat Big as a little brother starts to shake when she overhears him talking on the phone about a possible date with a girl. Making up her mind, Hye Young resolutely walks up to Big and tells him not to go out on a date with other girls.
Gearing up all her courage, Hye Young says "Let's date."
Looking at her with a blank expression Big replies "I have changed my mind" and walks away.
Frozen by Big's rejection, Hye Young doesn't have much time to dwell on her disappointment since the next moment Big comes back and hugs her from behind. Apparently he didn't want to appear too easy.
Our foursome makes a grand entrance into JH, each holding their employee pass with triumph
Realizing she can expose Ha Ni's secret if she can just get Ha Ni's leg wet, Jin Ah pushes an employee towards Ha Ni in order to spill water on her. Hyun Myung with his quick observation finds out about Jin Ah's intention and pushes Ha Ni out of the way. The fall causes the lighting equipment to fall but Hyun Myung uses his body to shield Ha Ni from harm.
Standing just on the other side of the wall, Shi Kyung hears the whole conversation between Ha Ni and Witch Ahn.
A smiling Shi Kyung greets Ha Ni and thanks her for helping him gain back the ability to laugh when life has made him forgotten it for so long. Both Shi Kyung and Ha Ni starts to cry when Shi Kyung apologizes to Ha Ni for not recognizing her sooner, thus missing his opportunity. Wiping away Ha Ni's tears, Shi Kyung smiles and sends Ha Ni off to Hyun Myung's side.
But Shi Kyung needs his mermaid!!!! Sob...
Jin Ah meets with Ha Ni and hands her the duplicate file she has on her, leaving Ha Ni to destroy them at her will.
Ha Ni cries and throws her arm around Hyun Myung while he gently asks if she is hurt anywhere.
Time is flying by, but Ha Ni and Hyun Myung does everything dating couples do and puts their faith that their love is true.
Ha Ni and Hyun Myung assures each other that their love is true so Ha Ni will not turn into bubbles. Unless... Ha Ni "Are you still harboring feeling for that fox?"
Hyun Myung laughs "No, it wouldn't be my fault if you turn into bubbles. My love is true 100%. Unless... do you still have feeling for that Shi Kyung guy?"
What a hilarious conversation to have about such a serious topic.
Hyun Myung presents a ring to Ha Ni and puts on her finger. The love bird shares a kiss...
A year later:
- Hyun Myung is able put his artist talent in commercial work with Jin Ah's help to sell them for him.
- Jin Ah looks radiant and happy. There is a hint maybe she is in love.
- Min Kyo has become an official employee at JH and has managed to snatch his JH trainer as his girlfriend.
- President Hong still can't forget Witch Ahn but love is in the air when she meets Witch Ahn via his motor bike transportation service. What?!
- Shi Kyung is being sent overseas to do a new project and he is finally willing to not hide his facial recognizing illness anymore. Shi Kyung also approaches Jin Ah to help him on his project which she happily agrees. Shi Kyung make it sound like he hasn't seen Jin Ah for a long time, so if she really is in love, then it's not Shi Kyung. I really hope it's not Shi Kyung.
Suddenly a fire ball comes from the sky and lands right in the yard just a few feet away from everyone.
At first surprised, but then everyone starts to smile when they realized Ha Ni is back.
Not bad... for such a rushed ending. I actually quite like the first part but then the ending completely confused me.
I thought the writer did a good job in convincing us why Ha Ni would go for Hyun Myung instead of Shi Kyung. I was even happy with Shi Kyung recognizing the writing on the wall and did the mature thing by letting Ha Ni go. However, I wasn't too happy with how the writer all the sudden made Jin Ah "nice" and part of the group. But I guess maybe in the original story line Jin Ah would have had more time to turn back around but I wonder if she just would've had more time to be hateful.
I sincerely hope the show wasn't hinting that Shi Kyung and Jin Ah would become a couple in the end. If there is such a hint... then I am ignoring it.
Should we talk about the actual ending? What?! Where did Ha Ni go? For a whole year? Why is that even necessary? She needed to go study abroad at the mermaid land for a year before she could come back? All that aside what does "I'll be back..." mean???
As much as I liked this show I really don't think I would want a second season out of it. But I might not be opposed to a special like they do so often in Japanese dramas. A special would be much appreciated if it would cover some mysteries like why did Ha Ni disappeared for a year.
Anyhow, it was a fun ride. Really wished it wasn't cut but kudos to the writer, filming crew and all the actor and actresses for doing such a bang up job right to the very end.
