Readers from 76 (!) countries of the world, what happens in the end?!
EE and my thoughts are below, but we missed a lot of things. What do you think?
As usual, I need to maintain my spoiler-free world, so if you have read about leaks from the production team, DO NOT SHARE! This is for wild a❀❀ guessing only.
Jomo: I am rewatching 17 and 18, and not just for Shoulders-woo up there, to see if there are any remarkable clues to the end. I have NO idea!! Why DID the sticks in Choi’s hand disappear, if later Sun-woo was able to use one? WHY?
EE: Yeah . . . I am really confused by that, too.
Jomo: And who finds him? And how does he get back? Or does he?
EE: I am worried that somehow time traveling Sun Woo has to die because he’s not connected to the Sun Woo from 1993. HOWEVER… I suspect it is his body they find in the Himalayas. He survived the Choi incident and lived for 20 years.
Jomo: Getting chills…Explain the body in the Himalayas. You think there will be a swap out where time traveling Sun Woo dies in his brother’s place?
EE: Yeah, I think he ends up saving Hyung. Since they cremated the body it could be time traveling Sun Woo.
Jomo: So what happens next in 2013? If time traveling Sun Woo doesn’t come back, who goes to his wedding? How does that work? (Do you like how I am making your do all the thinking?)
EE: There is still the Sun Woo who has been there — like the Sun Woo we saw forced into a proposal was not time traveling Sun Woo. That guy might be late . . . but he is still there.
Jomo: So he catches up with himself?
EE: Isn’t that usually the paradox with time travel, catching yourself?
Jomo: You are right! I like that the idea that he might be late to the wedding, but is still there.
EE: I am curious as to where Sun Woo was last seen in the current timeline around noon — like Min Young was getting ready for the wedding when she “leaped” into the timeline.
Jomo: OK then – final thoughts: Time traveling Sun Woo survives in the past, neutralizes Choi, but has to stay back. He ends up connecting with and working for Chul-min, but can only work behind the scenes at the news or he will completely confuse everyone when he ends up on TV at CBM.
EE: There has to be something with the 8th stick (the one that vanished for Choi) and something with that box. I just can’t figure it out yet.
Jomo: Ooooh! Young-hoon finds it, goes back to the past, and gets a new wife afterall! A quiet, shy, do anything for him girl who worships him.
EE: He deserves it. ☺
