We are finally at the end and what an ending it was. Granted, things got a little bit shaky in episode 15 but they completely made up for their issues with the finale. I didn't have a serious problem with the kidnapping plot ONLY because it served a higher purpose, but I still think they could have done something else in place of that. Even with my slight disappointment, the writer didn't make it super random because we had signs early on that we either chose to ignore or didn't see due to the overwhelming cuteness we had each week.

We did get some(obvious) revenge plots. Mainly with Hye Ri and her reasons for wanting revenge on the people who made her brother's last days lonely. We knew from last week that she was up to something and we finally see that she was involved with Min Young's kidnapping. I love how Moo Jin told her what really happened versus trying to explain to her how things weren't that bad. He knew she was involved and successfully eased her pain himself.

That's all I can ask for when he kidnapped Min Young, put everyone in danger, and stabbed my dear Master. You have no idea how many times I wished he'd get thrown from the roof. [tvN] 연애조작단 시라노.E16.END.130716.HDTV.H264.720p-WITH.mp4_000332799 Despite the drama that occurred, we got a very good ending that I am satisfied with. It's not the best, that award goes to All About My Romance and Greatest Love, but it's up there. This just confirmed my undying fondness of Master. I mean, he's good looking, can fight, cook, and knows when to step aside when it's needed. Cha Seung Pyo was not your average second lead by any means and I thoroughly enjoyed that. He was up front with his feelings, but was never clingy to her. I am not going to lie, I did in fact tear up and bit when he was lying there bleeding while watching the way Byung Hoon and Min Young were looking at each other. [tvN] 연애조작단 시라노.E16.END.130716.HDTV.H264.720p-WITH.mp4_000611477 [tvN] 연애조작단 시라노.E16.END.130716.HDTV.H264.720p-WITH.mp4_000648047 Even though I wanted strangle Byung Hoon for once again pulling the same card he pulled with Yi Seol and Do Il years ago, I have to admit it was very consistent with his character. While I despise noble idiocy in dramas, it made sense for him to want to do so. Do Il confessed he loved Yi Seol before he recognized his own feelings and he never realized how he felt until much later, the same goes with Min Young and Master. He didn't think he could make her happy, even after Yi Seol told him to own up to his feelings. I do agree with Fanserviced, I am happy that they made that twist with him still attempting to give Master a happy ending. I didn't like it, but I understood it. It added great depth. The confession is what I really enjoyed and loved. Master did in fact really like Min Young, but he also realized she would never like him like she did Byung Hoon. Him giving them both a chance truly made him the hero for this drama. [tvN] 연애조작단 시라노.E16.END.130716.HDTV.H264.720p-WITH.mp4_001694793 I also loved how we didn't hear Byung Hoon's confession, it goes along with who he is. It was oh so cute. [caption id="attachment_176072" align="alignnone" width="585"]Super cute Super cute[/caption] A great drama ending doesn't have to be happy, it just has to tie up loose ends and make sense when those ends are tied. This one did it for the most part. We know where everyone (who mattered) ended up and I love that. While I want to talk about where they all ended up, I can't because this might be longer than needed.

Well, that was the end of a good drama, I am so sad to see it go. I had so much fun reviewing this drama for you all. I am already having withdrawal symptoms, luckily I still have Love Around and Mischievous Kiss: Love in Tokyo (which ends this week. Boo!). I'll try not to cry * sniffle*.  With that said, what was your favorite part of the series?
