Duty wins out and Hong Bin goes to find Tae Hee to move her back into his house. However, Hong Bin arrives to find an empty house with a letter from Tae Hee bidding him farewell.
Se Dong ends up making a trip to Tae Hee's house in order to help Tae Hee's mom. Tae Hee apologizes to Se Dong for making her come all the way to her house, but Se Dong tells her "I didn't come here for you. So you can't tell me to leave."
Smiling, Tae Hee decides to accept Se Dong's presence in her house.
Thinking Se Dong has gone missing, Tae Hee rushes around trying to find her and sees Se Dong and Hong Bin together. With a sad smile, Tae Hee calls the village ajusshi to call off the search for Se Dong.
Se Dong runs away from Tae Hee's forceful questions and as she runs, Se Dong yells "Kim Tae Hee. I dislike you! Kim Tae Hee, get lost!" Hong Bin catches up to Se Dong and holds her in his arm as she cries. Slowly, Hong Bin tells Se Dong "I have never been a grown up to Tae Hee so this time I have to be one for her. I have to stay by her."
With that, Se Dong and Hong Bin part ways leaving Hong Bin behind to be with Tae Hee.
Tae Hee's death severely affected Se Dong who blames herself for refusing to visit Tae Hee while she was in the hospital.
Face to face with Se Dong, Hong Bin tells her "Be well where ever you go. But Se Dong, we must meet again..."
Before we get to the ending, let's go over what happens to the rest of our characters.
Chairman Joo calmly signs a divorce agreement with his wife and acknowledges that he has known all along that she has slowly been moving all his assets into her possession. Hong Joo stops his dad from leaving and asks the all important question "If I choose to stay with mom, will you miss me." After hedging his answer a few times, Chairman Joo finally admits "Of course."
Through a few chance discoveries of some past trinkets, Hong Joo comes to realize his dad is still human after all and starts to see his father without all the previous prejudices.
After Chairman Joo's divorce, Madam Yoon also resigned from her post with Hong Bin to go live with her son.
Madam Yoon calls Chairman Joo one last time and Chairman Joo finally admits that "Of course I felt bad for you. You who wanted to have a child from me so badly."
Smiling through her tears, Madam Yoon replies "That's enough then."
Seriously? She gets off completely free from causing Tae Hee's death?
Oops, the coolest ending has to belong to Secretary Ko who ends up with his dream girl complete with their own individual light bulb. (Niece with the lady, and Chang with Secretary Ko)
Iron man, iron man... you had potential but ... oh, well, at least you gave me cute Secretary Ko. I really wasn't sure why the writer even bothered with the whole protruding blade bit of the story. Hong Bin's super power only ever seems to come and go according to the writer's mood and was relegated to an afterthought in turn of the story plot.
As far as the romance part of the story I never quite got why Se Dong all the sudden went from being fearful of Hong Bin to deeply in love with him. Plus, I just feel too bad for Tae Hee. The writer made such an awesome second lead that pretty much wiped away any desire on my part to cheer for the two leads. I cheered when Tae Hee asked "Don't you guys realize you are trampling my self respect right now?" What makes Hong Bin and Se Dong think Tae Hee has to accept Hong Bin to take care of her when she knows perfectly well the one he loves is Se Dong and not her? That seems even more cruel to force a dying woman to look at a man who she loves, but who she knows doesn't love her anymore.
In the end I just want to throw a temper tantrum on the floor for Tae Hee's sake and screams "someone love this poor lady!" By the way, why didn't it occur to Hong Bin to inject his super hero blood into Tae Hee's body? Come on, the kid the king over all the computer geeks he could at least imagine that much right?
Sigh. Iron Man you made no sense, but for some reason I still watched from beginning to end so I guess that's something.
