BIG Episode 16 Quick Summary (Final)
Here we are finally in BIG final episode. It may be luring and seems to be brightly clear reaching the end…the writers chose “surprise”. But what kind of surprise, just wait a little while
The episode starts with Da Ran declaration at the restaurant. “I love KKJ!” After that she took off her wedding ring and put it on the table, in front of the whole family. Gyeong Joon brought Da Ran away. Mr. Gil apologized to Seo family.
Da Ran said she would love him now and then on, no matter he would remember or not. “I’ve never met any crazy girl like you,” said Gyeong Joon. “Yes, I’m crazy,” said Da Ran. Then she gave him back the watch and it surprised Gyeong Joon. “You searched for this in the water? You’re really crazy,” said Gyeong Joon. “Yes,you’re right I’m crazy for sure.” And then she continued, ”Even though you won’t remember, I will for sure get you,” said Da Ran.
For Gil family this matter was difficult, but for Seo family, Da Ran was just making things easier. Mrs.Seo dealt with it just casually.
Then Se Yeong called them, informing Gyeong Joon’s body was making a reaction
Da Ran and Gyeong Joon were walking home together, hand in hand, ignoring people staring at the dirty Da Ran. Then Da Ran was trying to make Gyeong Joon be able to keep one silly memory. She took a bush flower from the public pot on the path way, then crossed the street. The ajeossi who saw it called for her and Gyeong Joon had to say she’s a bit not right in mind. “Gyeong Joon, should I sing for you?” she cried from across the street. Then she sang Pororo song. Everyone thought she was a loony. Gyeong Joon approached Da Ran and said, ”If i can remember this, it’d be cool.”
Gyeong Joon’s aunty was going to take Da Ran’s ring, but Ma Ri came asking for it. “It’s mine, I bought it. It’s not a lie. So please give it to me.” Then Ma Ri asked the aunt and uncle a favor, “When Gyeong Joon awake, you should tell him the person who’s been loyal to him is Jang Ma Ri.”
At home, in the kitchen, Gyeog Joon was sitting facing Da Ran, interrogating her, “Since when you start liking KKJ?”
Da Ran:”I don’t remember exactly.”
Gyeong Joon protested, “You should remember about this!”
Da Ran confessed, “At the theater, while listening to the record together.”
Da Ran also said she started to feel her heart wavering on the park that day when she felt something weird in her heart and Gyeong Joon was coming for her. “I actually saw you that day,” said Gyeong Joon. DA Ran said she had no confidence that day, that’s why she hid.
Da Ran had to go to her family. Oh I love the way Gong Yoo smiled when he said goodbye to Da Ran on the door before she left.
Da Ran was facing her family. Her mother was going to cut Da Ran’s hair for her punishment, but she never did it. Mrs.Gil cried, “I don’t know how to face my mother. I don’t even know my own daughter.”
Gyeong Joon spent his day in the hospital with his two favorite kids. He’s blowing out baloon. When the boy’s baloon was blown out, the surprised Gyeong Joon felt something weird in his heartbeat.
Mrs.Gil proposed Se Yeong to get closer to Yoon Jae again after he’s back healthy later on after the surgery.
Choong Shik was ordered by his mother to court Da Ran from school to home. Meanwhile Gyeong Joon was actually waiting for her in front of the school, but Da Ran went back home with her brother. So Gyeong Joon came to her house, but he couldn’t get in so he asked Da Ran out. But Mr.Gil prohibited Da Ran to go out of house.She’s definitely grounded. Gyeong Joon was still waiting for her behind their house. He told Da Ran to go down from the balcony and he’d catch her. But Mrs.Gil stopped her. Later on, Da Ran didn’t give any notice to Gyeong Joon and just jumped down. She’s landed bad, but she’s fine. They hid behind th plant in Gil’s backyard and did the backstreet date just like teenagers. She put back the watch to his wrist (Gyeong Joon made her) and then kissed him and Gyeong Joon was very happy for the kiss.
Mrs.Seo told Gyeong Joon that she’s not going with him and his father because she wanted to stay with Gyeong Joon to take care of him. Gyeong Joon was a bit touch, but stayed cool. Then she got a call from Mr.Seo telling that Ma Ri took away Gyeong Joon’s body.
Gyeong Joon tried to catch her. He called Ma Ri on his way. Ma Ri was really desperate. She said, “If Da Ran is crazy, I’m doible double crazy!” Gyeong Joon said, ”Fine! If you’re not giving back my body, I won’t go to Germany nor take the surgery. I will stay in Seo Yoon Jae’s body and I will die soon anyway.” Ma Ri lost the argument and give up. She sent back Gyeong Joon’s body.
Ma Ri told Gyeong Joon that if when he’s back he couldn’t remember anything but insisted on staying by Da ran’s sise, Yoon Jae would also suffer just like her. Because no matter what, Yoon Jae was Da Ran’s fiancee.
Ma Ri met Da Ran and told a lie about the ring. She said she took it from the restaurant and put the ring somewhere in mandoo’s ingredient. The crazy Da Ran look for it here in there, even run after the take away mandoos. But of course she found none. Actually I don’t really get the urgency of this scene.
The unconscious Yoon Jae in the hospital remembering the last time he talked to Da Ran. He remembered the way Da Ran desperately asked him if he really loved her. Gyeong Joon’s body cried.
Da Ran was across the street and Gyeong Joon called her. They talked on the phone. Da Ran said that everyday she would remember him well, no matter he would remember or not after he’s coming back.
Gyeong Joon talked straightly to Ma Ri that he would stay with Gil Da Ran, so she would not need to come to him anymore. Gyeong Joon was giving the harsh reality for Ma Ri and that’s just his style, but he’s making it a friendly break up. ”Ma Ri, come here,” Gyeong Joon gave her the last pat on the head.
Ma Ri left for US straightly soon. She only had Choong Shik sent her away. Choong Shik wrote down his nmae on Ma Ri’s bag, told her to wait for him.
Gyeong Joon was ready for Germany. He told Se Yeong that when the Seo Yoon Jae she liked was back, she could try to get his heart again. “Please be sexy.”
Da Ran came with an old green umbrella she just had it fixed. Gyeong Joon was watering the plant. “Gyeong Joon, do you remmber the first time we met?” asked Da Ran. She asked him to spray her so it’d be like rain, like the moment they first met.
They redo the first time they met, by taking the bus. Gyeong Joon said he was the one who change their umbrellas. Gyeong Joon said if he appeared next to Da Ran, she should catch him. And no matter Gyeong Joon might indifferently shrugged her away on that moment, Da Ran should surely catch him. So they would have a moment like this one, the sweet memory under one umbrella under the rain standing side by side.
Sadly, that’s also the place where they’re saying good bye. Gyeong joon cried, telling out his desperation. He didn’t want to lose all his memories with DA Ran. “Gil Da Ran, I love you.” Then he left.
One year later.
Da Ran was doing fine. The sick cute kids were recovered. Teacher Ha and his wife were expecting a child. Choong Shik became a cook in his family business. He sent mandoo regularly to Ma Ri. And this time, when he was about to send mandoo to Ma Ri just like usual, Ma Ri suddenly appeared in front of him. Ma Ri was studying photography. Choong Shik took their picure together with his mobile.
Gyeong Joon’s house was occupied by another family. Da Ran walked pass it.
Then she rode a bus. It was raining and 10.10. On the bus, a radio show was airing, telling story that seemed to be Da Ran’s. Then there were two green umbrellas on the bus floor, Da Ran smiled. Da Ran got off the bus, opened the umbrella for it’s raining. Then someone called her name. A tall big man in checkered shirt came running joined her under the umbrella. But we didn’t see his face, just the broad shoulder and the KKJ watch on his wrist.
The scene was back to moment when Gyeong Joon told her that moment under the umbrella before he left. Da Ran remembered what Gyeong Joon told her that day: to catch him and no matter Gyeong Joon might indifferently shrugged her away she had to run after him. And she did it.
It’s definitely a happy ending. But a mysterious one. We never see the face of that broad shoulder. The writers leave it for us, the viewers, to make our own version of the ending.
Ha! I think the writers were “trapped” by their own complicated story. So they didn’t want to push anything to spoil the good story building. So they make the ending this way. Happy ending…but complicated.
