2017 - The Most Heart-breaking And Disappointing Kdramas Endings Of All Time

The Most Heart-breaking And Disappointing Kdramas Endings Of All Time

Korean dramas have their fair share of sad endings; they also have their fair share of disappointing endings that left fans annoyed.

Some kdramas clearly indicates that there won’t be a happy ending early on in the plot, and some others just come at you out of nowhere.

Despite the fact that most kdrama writers try to please fans with the ending and create sweet cheesy endings to the entire main cast, there are some Korean drama writers who stick or reality or completely mess up the drama.

Today at jazminemedia.com,I decide to dive in deep to some of the saddest most disappointing endings of Korean dramas I have ever personally seen.

Please beware, this video is filled with spoilers, it will cover the following dramas: Cheese in the trap, scarlet heart reyeo, im sorry I love you, I remember you, Triangle, Uncontrollably Fond, and W two worlds.

So in case any of these dramas are still on your to-watch-list or a drama you’re currently watching, please skip over this video.

Check out the video below and then once you’re done watching, join me in the discussion of each drama ending. Here is what my opinion was of each drama ending (as mentioned in the video)

Im Sorry, I Love You

If you google kdramas that all kdrama fans should watch, this drama will probably be on the top of every list.

It was one of the dramas that spread the hallyu wave. Back then people didn’t know much about kdramas and didn’t care much either.

And now we’re here!

“Im Sorry, I Love You” was sad, too sad for me. I watched the first couple of episodes and somehow scrolled through the comments and found out that the hero dies, so I was like “NOP!” However, I did skip to the ending and watched it. I cried!

But it was a very good interesting drama with a lot of twists, its highly recommended!

Cheese In The Trap

I am gonna say it! I actually liked the ending of “Cheese In The Trap”, what you goin do bout it? 🙂

Hahaha! No seriously, I loved this drama, it was such a different drama with a twist I don’t usually see in regular kdramas.

The main male lead of this drama is (by nature) a bad person, he is a sociopath who manipulate and hurts those around him, Park Hae Jin was perfect for his role.

And for the first time I felt like he had good chemistry with someone he shared the screen with, he did mention that he wanted to work with Kim Go Eun and then it happened.

I am gonna be honest, the character didn’t deserve her. I love his acting but it doesn’t mean that that common sense section in my brain shall be erased because I ship the two together.

I related so much to the drama and I bet a lot of people did as well, its about college life and how people struggle in it. All the characters were amazing, everyone in the drama was amazing, even over-top-Lee Sung Kyung.

I like that he knows he isn’t good enough for her, he wishes her the best, but if we were to be real, he would only cause her misery. I highly doubt he’d stop being a sociopath just like that, in real life people don’t change so easily, how can a girl in the span of a year or less completely help change a 24~ year old man?

He was a jerk to her and hurt her in the beginning of the drama without feeling bad, he hurt a lot of other people and didn’t feel that bad.

In real life, the two shouldn’t have ended up together, if I were her, I would have walked away, she is too precious and deserves someone who is at least normal.

Scarlet Heart Ryeo

We asked for one thing! One thing and the editors were like “Fuck you all! we ain’t doing that!”

I wrote an article of why I thought “Scarlet Heart Ryeo” was one of the biggest kdrama flops of the year and it was wayyy before the final episode. I don’t regret what I wrote.

The editing team did a poor job, I feel angry whenever I discuss this drama, they had such a good cast, the plot holes and the terrible editing made it so difficult to watch.

But I did tune in to the final episode and couldn’t stop the tears from falling, how could they? We knew it was gonna end badly because we were told what would happen in the Chinese version. Yet, we weren’t prepared for what was going to happen!

We wanted a proper closure, did we get that? NOP!

Uncontrollably Fond

“Uncontrollably Fond” was a drama I didn’t watch but read  its recap, many people pointed out it was good, some of my friends watched it and said it was sad.

I knew it was going to be filled with tears, and to be honest, I am not a huge fan of either Kim Woo Bin or Suzy, so I wasn’t going to watch the drama anyway.

I did watch some clips here and there, I admire how good Kim Woo Bin acting got, he was a model-turned-actor and now we can seriously call him an actor.

The vast majority of reviewers also think this was the best Suzy performance to date. I think she’s an okay actress, but I am yet to watch a drama where I am impressed by her acting enough not to call her an idol actress but an actress.

I will be tuning in to see “While you were asleep” this September, I hope its good! It better be good.

Remember: The War Of Son

I loved “Remember”, and the best thing about the drama was…. (you guessed it) Namgoong Min.

I love evil kdrama characters that aren’t afraid of going all out. He was one hella of an annoying obnoxious character and I loved every clip he was in.

He overshadowed Yoo Seung Ho in my opinion, he just stole the spotlight with his performance and people were actually scared of him in real life (he actually talked about that!)

Yoo Seung Ho did very well in the drama, I didn’t like that the writer went ahead and added a little romance between him and Park Min Young since they seem to fit noona-dongsang relationship narrative better. I wasn’t buying their chemistry or their romance. They were a good team but not good lovers.

All the people put on an amazing performance and I liked the ending as well. I do have many unanswered questions but I think it was a good realistic drama.

It would’ve been a sad ending if the two had ended up together, he will hurt her daily and cause her trouble, he will hinder her life not add to it, he was going to become more difficult with time.

Yoo Seung Ho’s character realized that and let go, it was such a brave decision that really shows you how much he cared for her. She was still young, too young to have to take care of a younger man who won’t even recognize her.

I know I may sound really annoying and superficial but it is the truth, ask yourself guys, would any of you really be prepared to take care of Yoo Seung Ho’s character? How long will you last? And if he really loved you will he even allow you to take care of him?

Think of this before you bash me in the comment section 😉


“Triangle” was one annoying drama.

And its ending was… very… annoying.

The best thing about this drama was Jaejoong. I watched the majority of the drama, I loved how Jaejoong’s acting improved with time. After a while, I felt that he actually became the character he was playing. He was no longer THE Jaejoong, he was his character, I loved that.

Everyone put on an amazing performance and I felt sorry for Siwan’s character. When I was behind on the drama, the final episode was released and when I found out the character was going to die, I was “Nop! I ain’t watching”

W two worlds

Do you know how much this drama annoyed me? ( I am gonna rant, be prepared!)

If I had to pick the most unrealistically annoying kdrama endings of all time, I’d pick “W two worlds”. It was such a good drama and had good progress.

During the middle of the drama, I started to see the cracks and it annoyed me. Towards the end, I feared the worst and it happened. I was waiting for so much more from this drama and I was left in shock.

How can a father choose a manhwa character over himself?

Allow me to simplify the plot, Lee Jong Suk’s character was actually made up and drawn by Han Hyo Joo’s character. In a way, she was his God and she created him.

The father well aware of his daughter’s ideal man went ahead and chose him over his own life when he was just a drawing.

Whether you like or hate what I say, by the end of the day he is still a drawing, an unrealistic character of what a young girl wanted her dream man to be like. He isn’t real ya’l!!!

The father should’ve killed him, and left the manhwa world like a normal human being. His daughter is beautiful, successful and can easily find a real man with real flaws not that manhwa character.

If I were her, I would have trouble loving Lee Jong Suk’s character after all that happened. I mean what type of shitty happy ending is that? How can she EVER be okay with her father killing himself for her sake? Because she liked the character she drew?

Do you get me?

If she had to choose it should be her father. Where was his sense? Any man with common sense would have killed Lee Jong Suk’s character. Don’t get me wrong I would still be sad he died but at least we’re left with a realistic ending.

What is Han Hyo Joo’s character gonna tell people when they ask of her father’s whereabouts? (Good question! I know!)

I know its supposed to be a fantasy drama and I understand for the most part, but it was a crossover between reality and fantasy, the least the writer could do was to actually try to balance between both.

Besides this annoying ending, so much of the drama doesn’t add up. What was that world? What happened to it?

The writer tried (and in the eyes of many) succeeded in creating an illusion. If we were to dive in deep and discuss this drama, so much of it fails to add up.

In my opinion, the wrtier just didn’t know how to end it properly. The drama gets really messy towards the end.

So this what I thought of all those drama endings. I do get a little carried away in the discussion but its because I feel like some drama could’ve been better.

So what do you think guys? which drama ending got on your nerves the most?

    I’ve only seen Scarlet Heart and W from this list, but I completely agree!! In both series it started falling apart at about the middle and the final episode was just terrible. I’m furious about how Scarlet Heart ended!! I’m glad I’m not the only one who felt like this.
    Also, both series had fantastic actors… for the most part. It’s disappointing they weren’t utilized to their fullest potential. Seriously so upset about these two dramas. >_>

    I feel the same about W, I stopped watching it after the cartoon character shot the girl’s dad. I couldn’t get past the fact that they were somehow going to have these characters develop a relationship. Like the guy shot her dad, I wouldn’t be able to be with someone who shot my dad like I don’t care if he didn’t shoot him in a vital area, something bad could have still happened to him after that one shot.

    Cheese in the Trap: he wasnt a bad guy. The thing show (and webtoon) was about him being misunderstood and her seeing him for who he really is; a guy thats socially awkward and doesn’t understand people at all.
    W Two Worlds: Dont blame Lee Jong Suk for the bad script. The script was bad not his acting. You missed the point on this one too. He started out as a character in a manhwa but he became an actual person. A living, breathing, person. The dad didn’t kill himself for the character, he killed himself because the “other” dad was also going after his daughter and the only way to stop him was to kill himself. Again, bad script good acting.

      I will have to disagree with you on Hae Jin’s character in CINT, the character is rather scary and manipulative. I havent watched the manhwa so I can’t comment on what he was supposed to be like, from what I see, he’s clearly a sociopath who doesn’t mind or feel bad for hurting those who stand in his way, yes, he starts seeing that its bad, but him not realizing hurting others and getting back at them in his ways was originally bad, presents a problem with how his brain is wired.
      However, on Lee Jong Suk’s point I agree with some of what you said, I never said he acted bad, but the ending and the entire script went down hill in the second half. He became a living, breathing human throughout the drama, however, he originated from a drawing, that I cannot overlook, he remains an entity created by the mind of a young girl’s fantasy, this is why I still believe he doesn’t exist, the entire plot didn’t make sense, not that it had to, since its a fantasy drama but still there is common sense thats missing!

    OOOOHHH, I thought I was the only one thinking about the faltering scenes on W. Lots of inconsistencies and loopholes. Didn’t like the ending either.

    Lee Jong Suk’s character was physically based on Han Hyo Joo’s character’s ideal guy. His story and personality was created by Kim Ui Seong’s character.

    I also didn’t like how KUS had to die in the manhwa. I just think it would be better if the killer has a different face than his… it was prety weird at first that the killer can travel and has the upper hand since it’s not yet clearly stated that he’s a human being. But when he became a human, he still got the upper hand and still be able to manipulate LJS’ character…

    Of the list, I’ve only watched “W” to the end. I will disagree with your conclusions on the story. In a fantasy world, rules of the real world are either changed or removed to some extent. That was true in “W”. In fact, it was established the world inside the comic was “real” and seperate and the people there actually existed. They weren’t “just” paper people who didn’t have “real” lives. A viewer can take that as “fact” within the construct of the “fictional” world created in the drama or they can apply their real world (outside the drama) rules to the story. Doing the former allows the view to watch and accept the story as it’s being presented. Doing the latter causes the viewer to question the logic of fictional characters in a fictional story and world. At some point, when we watch fiction we’re asked to suspend disbelief. At what point and to what degree varies from story to story. Personally, I like fantasy because it lets us invent other worlds and other realities, unconstrained by what we face in the real world. It’s one of the things that makes fiction, fiction.

    You should’ve add third charm now. I don’t get the story at all. Why would the writer put sad ending for the main character? What’s the point of romantic drama if they don’t get together? Ahhh so frustrating!

The Most Heart-breaking And Disappointing Kdramas Endings Of All Time- Part 2

As a follow up to the first article I have written about a year ago, I have received many submissions from fans who wanted to add more kdramas to the list of the most heartbreaking disappointing kdramas endings of all time.

The list below is selected by you guys, if you have any more dramas you’d like to add to the list please let me know in the comments section below.

Something Happened In Bali

The drama is an old kdrama and one of the first to receive so much love from the international audience, however, the drama ending had people in tears wondering why it didn’t end up as they had hoped it would.

The drama cast includes Ha Ji Won, So Ji Sub and Jo In Sung.

Those three characters engage in a very brutal love triangle that ends with the death of the three main characters.

Jo In Sung’s character hunts down Ha Ji Won and So Ji Sub after he thought they had eloped together, he finds them in a bed together and with the gun in his hands he shoots them both killing them almost instantly.

Before her character dies, Ha Ji Won tells Jo In Sung’s character that she loves him, when he wakes up from his rage and sees her crying while dying he can’t contain himself.

He ends up going to the beach next to the room he found them both in, he shoots himself there as well.

Its very rare to find a kdrama where the three male leads all die, it was one of the most heartbreaking kdramas ever seen by kdrama fans.

God’s Gift 14 Days

It tells the story of a mother that goes back in time to bring her dead child to life, Cho Seung Woo’s character helps her. Judging from the plot description itself its not unlikely to assume the ending will not be that okay.

This ending had people disappointed because many of them didn’t think it fit the entire story line. The ending seemed rush and abrupt for many fans and they were let down with how things turned out to be.

The ending was left open; Cho Seung Woo’s character who tries to uncover the truth behind the child’s death in order to save her probably ends up dead.

The story plays in a way that kind of explains its either him or the kid will have to die eventually. The child does return to her mother in the end and we’re left with the open ending that suggests Cho Seung Woo’s character died.

Fans don’t know whether he ends up alive or dead for sure after the entire ordeal.

Fas consider this drama ending beside the overall plot holes very disappointing and uncalled for.

49 Days

“49 Days” is considered one of the best heartbreaking kdramas of all time. Fans thought the ending was brutal nonetheless befitting.

It’s a melodrama that will have you crying your eyes out, its also considered highly underrated.

Without going into too many details Ji Hyun (played by Nam Gyu Ri) almost dies in a car crash, fall into a coma and gets transferred into the body of a suicidal woman Lee Kyung (played by Lee Yo Won) that isn’t happy with her life.

A messenger from god sees Ji Hyun soul and tells her if she finds three people who will genuinely shed tears over her in the next 49 days she will awake from her coma and live.

Sadly, in the end Ji Hyun (Nam Gyu Ri) character dies while Lee Kyung (played by Lee Yo Won) lives on, the two characters help each other. Lee Kyung helps Ji Hyun move on to the next life without any regrets while Ji Hyun helps Lee Kyung find a reason to live.

Queen For 7 Days

“Queen For 7 Days” almost instantly establishes itself as a drama that will make you cry in almost every episode.

Its led by Park Min Young, Yeon Woo Jin and Lee Dong Gun.

The drama tells the love story between a king (Yeon Woo Jin) and a queen (Park Min Young), it takes an awfully tragic turn.

In the end, the queen sacrifices her position because of her love to the king, they both end up living apart unable to live together despite their immense love for each other.

They do end up reuniting 39 years later both very old one last time.

The drama ending was very heartbreaking, fans cried a lot because of how it ended but the sequences of the last episodes made fans very happy. Although it was a very sad ending it wasn’t disappointing just heartbreaking and true.

True love doesn’t always mean you’ll end up spending your time with the person you love.

Fashion King

This was a highly requested drama to go under the most-disappointing kdrama endings of all time.

“Fashion King” included the best cast; it had Yoo Ah In, Shin Se Kyung, and Lee Je Hoon. However, the plot, as well as the ending, made fans furious some going as far to crown it the worst kdrama they have seen in recent years.

It tells the story of four people in the high-end fashion industry. Many fans slapped this drama as poorly written, the ending of the drama didn’t make it any better.

In the end, Yoo Ah In’s character drunkenly dials Shin Se Kyung’s character while in a Jacuzzi to tell her he misses her, he ends up shot dead by a random man while talking on the phone to the woman he loves.

Stairway To Heaven

If you want to cry a lot while watching a good kdrama watch this one.

“Stairway To Heaven” boasts great cast: Kim Tae Hee, Choi Ji Woo, and Kwon Sang Woo. Its considered one of the best kdramas of all time.

However, the ending was extremely heartbreaking!

It tells the story of Song Joo (Kwon Sang woo) and Jung Seo (Choi Ji woo), two people who were destined for each other. Time goes by and eventually when they grow older and separate.

Jung Seo then sadly is involved in a car accident that causes her amnesia, she cannot remember the love of her life or even her name, the story follows her.

By the end, Jung Seo gets diagnosed with cancer in her eyes but it had spread to her head, she has very little time left. Instead of choosing to chase after therapy to prolong her life she decides to spend it with the ones she loves most.

Towards the end of her life, she pulls herself together and asks her love Song Joo to take her to the beach; they walk there a lot before sitting down, she lies in his arms and takes her last breath.

Autumn In My Heart

Another kdrama classic that boast a legendary cast: Song Hye Kyo, Won Bin, Han Chae Young and Song Seung Heon. The drama aired back in 2000 and is credited as one of the first kdramas that helped spread the Hallyu wave.

It’s a sad love story that begins with two girls who were swapped at birth one of them led a happy life while the other led a sad life, eventually, the two girls return to their rightful places.

In the end, Song Hye Kyo’s character ends up dead of leukemia. Song Seung Heon’s character visits the places they used to frequent; a truck comes along and hits him.

He presumed to be dead but the drama never explicitly explains whether he committed suicide or just surrendered to his fate when he saw the truck coming at him.

He was miserable after her death and might have followed her soon just like the tragic love story between Romeo and Juliet.

Empress Ki

Episodes count-wise; “Empress Ki” is the longest kdrama on this list. It has 51 episodes and was extremely successful in South Korea and overseas.

Usually, Kdramas with longer episodes don’t achieve much attention outside of Korea but that wasn’t the case for the heartbreaking historical drama “Empress Ki.”

Ji Chang Wook, Joo Jin Mo and Ha Ji Won and others lead this drama.

Ha Ji Won ends up in a love triangle between Ta Hwan (Ji Chang Wook) and Wang (Joo Jin Mo). Both fall in love with her but it ends tragically. In efforts to protect his woman, Ta Hwan kills off Wang.

He also ends up drinking the poison that was meant for her, choosing to die for her after all his wrongful deeds.

He ends up dead in her arms after the two profess their love for each other. Some fans think her true love was Wang while others are convinced it was Ta Hwan.

Some people loved the ending but thought it was heartbreaking while others called the ending disappointing.


“Hwayugi” is the most recent drama on our list, it aired earlier this year. It was highly anticipated because it marked Lee Seung Gi’s return to the small screen following his military discharge.

Lee Seung Gi, Cha Seung Won, and Oh Yeon Seo lead the fictional drama. It tells the story of finding light in a dark world where evils exist everywhere.

Throughout the course of the drama you quickly find out that Oh Yeon Seo’s character must sacrifice herself for the fate of humanity, so it was already expected that the ending wasn’t going to be a nice one.

Eventually, the drama kills off Oh Yeon Seo’s character before Lee Seung Gi’s character could do anything about it. The final fighting scene felt rushed, heavily saturated with bad CGI and anticlimactic.

Many kdrama fans loved the drama throughout its runtime but unfortunately, the death of Oh Yeon Seo’s character and the lack of a happy ending to any main character rubbed fans the wrong way.

Lee Se Young’s character also ends up dead killed off by Lee Hong Ki’s character.

Besides being a heartbreaking ending, fans believe it was completely disappointing.

    Oooh Stairway to Heaven… It was broadcasted in my country one summer. That’s how I got into kdramas (and later kpop).

    I definitely will not watch any of those dramas in this list. I want to watch kdrama to be entertained – not to feel sadness. Reality is difficult as it is, why immerse in fiction and feel even more crappy?

    You can add to your list “MR. SUNSHINE. I really loved the story, only to be disappointed on the last episode. The leading male character gave me the impression of a very smart and sensible man. But the way he died….. really? Such a stupid move. A man like him could have done better to save his life for his love one. He had an ace on his grip. Why would he jump on the other half of the train??!!!!! He and his hostage could have just stayed on the other half and leave the japs on the other. They would not have come after them after he had splitte the train into two.

2012 - Loạt phim Hàn kết thúc "củ chuối" nhất

Chúng ta hãy cùng điểm lại các kết phim nhận nhiều... "gạch đá" nhất màn ảnh Hàn năm 2012.

Mỗi năm, các đài truyền hình xứ kim chi phát sóng cả trăm bộ drama khác nhau. Có tác phẩm trở thành kỷ niệm đẹp trong lòng khán giả với cốt truyện đặc sắc, hấp dẫn. Nhưng ngược lại, không ít đầu phim khiến người xem lắc đầu ngao ngán chỉ vì cách hạ màn vụng về đến khó hiểu. Cùng chúng tớ điểm danh các "tội đồ" đã làm mếch lòng "thượng đế yêu phim Hàn" trong năm 2012 nhé!

1. Fashion King

Vua thời trang xứng đang được "vinh danh" là tác phẩm củ chuối nhất năm 2012. Drama trực thuộc SBS đã tạo nên một làn sóng phẫn nộ trong đông đảo khán giả truyền hình vì cái kết siêu-nhảm-nhí.

Thay vì thỏa mãn kì vọng của người xem về 1 "happy ending", Fashion King khép lại với một kết cục chết chóc bi thương dành cho nhân vật nam chính Kang Young Gul (Yoo Ah In). Số phận các nam thanh nữ tú còn lại như Ga Young (Shin Se Kyung), Jae Hyuk (Lee Je Hoon), Choi Anna (Yuri) đều bị biên kịch bỏ ngỏ.

Một drama từng được nhà đài SBS tung hô là "bức tranh sinh động về chuyện đời, chuyện nghề của các nhà thiết kế thời trang trẻ" cuối cùng lại chốt hạ hệt như phim hình sự/xã hội đen. Nhiều khán giả bày tỏ, họ cảm giác "bị lừa một vố đau" khi xem tập cuối Fashion King.

2. Big

Cũng chọn đề tài hoán đổi thân xác làm cái cớ phát triển câu chuyện thế nhưng, Big đã không thể gặt hái được thành công vang dội như "tiền bối" Secret Garden.

Sau 16 tập phim, chị em biên kịch họ Hong nhận cả rổ gạch đá vì chưa đưa ra được lời giải đáp thực sự thuyết phục cho mớ rắc rối xuyên suốt chiều dài tác phẩm. Đoạn cuối là cảnh Kyung Joon - Da Ran trùng phùng nhưng ngay đến mặt mũi nam chính ra sao, người xem cũng chẳng được tận mục sở thị.

Nút thắt câu chuyện - bí ẩn tráo hồn đổi xác - hoàn toàn bị xếp xó. Kết thúc lửng lơ khiến Big mất điểm trầm trọng trong lòng khán giả truyền hình.

3. Time Slip Dr. Jin

Time Slip Dr. Jin - phim cuối tuần nhà MBC - bị liệt vào hàng ngũ drama "tội đồ" vì kết thúc quá bất công. Trong 60 phút chốt hạ, tiểu thư Young Rae (Park Min Young) cùng lúc đánh mất cả hai người đàn ông quan trọng nhất đời mình.

Chưa kịp nguôi ngoai nỗi đau khi chứng kiến chàng tướng quân Kim Kyung Tak (Kim Jae Joong) lìa đời bi thảm, người đẹp lại tiếp tục đón nhận tin dữ khác - Jin Hyuk (Song Seung Hun) phải từ biệt cô để quay về thời hiện đại. Giọt nước mắt bi thương cùng tình cảnh cô độc của Young Rae ở cuối phim khiến nhiều người xem đau xót.

4. Dream High 2

Tổ chế tác phim thần tượng này luôn nhất mực tự hào "Dream High 2 là bộ phim kết thúc có hậu". Thế nhưng đáng tiếc, cái kết “có hậu” ấy lại không đủ sức lay động mọi trái tim khán giả. "Đầu voi đuôi chuột" là những gì người xem cảm nhận được khi theo dõi từ đầu đến cuối tác phẩm.

Biên kịch Dream High 2 dành phần lớn thời lượng để dựng lên vô vàn tình huống yêu đương tay tư giữa Hae Sung (Kang So Ra) - JB (JB)- Yoo Jin (Jin Woon) – Ryan (Ji Yeon). Khán giả hào hứng theo dõi và chờ mong một ngày "những người yêu nhau sẽ lại về với nhau".

Ấy thế mà tập 16 đã phũ phàng "dội gáo nước lạnh" vào sự háo hức của họ. Kịch bản tập cuối mải mê với việc miêu tả bộ tứ thành danh trong sự nghiệp ra sao mà hoàn toàn lờ-lớ-lơ chi tiết về đường tình duyên. Với tuyến tình cảm lằng nhằng, kết thúc thiếu i-ốt, Dream High 2 rõ ràng đã rớt giá thảm hại so với "anh ruột" Dream High 2011.
