Hyun Wook chases Se Na to the train station, but arrives just in time to see the train pulling away.
A Year Later...
Shi Woo, obviously doing really well in his career comes back from another overseas tour and asks Hae Yoon (CEO of AnA now) to not schedule so many overseas tours for him.
Omo, does he really think that?!
Interestingly, when the co-host asks Hyun Wook to write a song for her, Hyun Wook replies "I guess you didn't hear. I don't work with female singers."
Interesting... is it because he doesn't want what happened with So Eun to happen with Se Na?
Coming out of the studio, Hyun Wook sees Jae Young begging a producer for an opportunity to put his talents on the show. Obviously not doing well, Jae Young still greets Hyun Wook with a snide remark that things are going well with Hyun Wook's life.
Feeling sorry to see Jae Young's composing talent going to waste, Hyun Wook tells Jae Young to consider giving up his business dealings and to go back to his roots.
Hae Yoon calls Hyun Wook in to ask him to be a composer for Shi Woo. Pouting, both boys complains about working with one another.
Shi Woo taunts Hyun Wook about not knowing where Se Na is and Hyun Wook fires back that he has no reason to know where Se Na is.
Boy, he sure is acting like everything is in the past.
Arriving at Joo Hong's, Se Na greets her friend who is already visibly pregnant. Joo Hong tells Se Na that her boyfriend Gong Chul ended up becoming Shi Woo's manager after Shi Woo tirelessly showed up their house everyday to look for Se Na. In contrast, Hyun Wook has never shown up and has even moved away from his house.
Of course, Hyun Wook choose that very moment to come back to the house to compose. (He doesn't live there, but does all his composing there.) Quickly, Se Na hides and waits for Hyun Wook to finish composing.
Se Na starts to leave the house after watching Hyun Wook takes off but ends up being caught red handed when Hyun Wook runs back in to get something he has forgotten.
Back at Joo Hong's Se Na tells her friend that Hyun Wook acts like a stranger now and wonders if this will really be an end for the two of them.
Calming down after his initial shock of seeing Se Na, Hyun Wook chides himself for being too harsh on Se Na.
Shi Woo charges right to Joo Hong's house and yells at Se Na for leaving without saying anything.
Hyun Wook pulls some strings and gets Se Na to come meet him under a pretense. Hyun Wook apologizes to Se Na for his harsh words the day before and asks Se Na how she has been doing. The conversation takes a turn for the worse when Hyun Wook starts to get worked up when he realized Se Na has been working at a diner. "You have gone back to the way you were before you met me!" Hyun Wook yelled.
Even more angry, Se Na yells back "What's wrong with working at a diner. You call me here to apologize to you for that?"
Se Na storms off leaving Hyun Wook alone.
Nodding with understanding, Sung Jin comforts Hyun Wook that he still has one last killer weapon he hasn't used "Your music."
Just when it looks like Hyun Wook is finally going to tell Se Na how he really feels, a surprise visit from his dad and Hae Yoon scares Se Na off.
Shi Woo "Next time when you come back, come back to to me."
The boy has stamina for sure.
However, before Hyun Wook can carry out his plan, he gets a text from Joo Hong in the middle of his radio program that Se Na is already on her way to the train station.
Hearing Hyun Wook's voice, Se Na mutters "Ajusshi?"
On the radio, Hyun Wook confess his true feelings "Se Na, I don't know if you can hear me but I believe if we are meant to be then somehow you will hear this. This past year without you, was really scary to me. So I really wanted to complain. But what I really wanted to say was to hold onto you, I wanted you to say with me."
The end... really? Why don't they ever leave enough time to tell some of the "after" story?! As a viewer after watching the two leads pining after each other for a whole hour I really would like some time to see them together.
Anyhow, the ending was... not bad, not good, but not bad either. I really would have rather if either Hyun Wook or Se Na been the one to purposefully search the other one out. In my view, it should have been Se Na's move since she was the one to leave a note saying they should part temporarily, so it stands to reason she should have been the one to come back and show she is ready to face things together with Hyun Wook.
Plus what's up with Se Na working at a diner??! Seriously? Her dream is to be a composer and she proved herself with Shi Woo so why would she go back to working at a diner? She could have used a alias if she REALLY didn't want Hyun Wook to find her (not that it sounded like he tried) but the last thing I wanted to see was my heroine not working on her dream for a guy... even if he looks like Rain.
If you guys can't tell, I chose to skip most of President Lee and his wife's storyline for the simple fact I just don't understand where the writer was going with that. I think it was suppose be for comedian purposes but it just come off wrong since President Lee turns out not to be jerk, in fact he seems to care a lot about his wife but now the wife seems to be the one having a little side romance? The whole thing just kind of detract from the story, so most of the time I just chose to have amnesia when it comes to their scenes.
It was a nice feeling to watch Jae Young's business fail and to have him admit that Hyun Wook has succeeded both as the president of AnA and as a composer. I am not sure how I feel about Hyun Wook talking Hae Yoon into giving Jae Young an opportunity to work with AnA again. That just seems to be a poor business practice to take back someone who has stabbed you in the back repeatedly and who by the way still doesn't seem to feel any remorse about it. But oh, well. I am starting to be convinced most writer has a soft spot for their villains.
All in all, My Lovely Girl was a really enjoyable watch for me. It didn't pull any surprise punches and I didn't expected any. I went in expecting a good old K-drama romantic tale with all it's pit falls and that's what I got.
