I am sure we have enough time for this.
So I saw many other posts about the ending of Mr. Queen, and I don’t normally just make text posts about kdramas. But honestly the ending felt like such a cop-out. Sure, there would be the massive plot-hole of like Bong Hwan in modern times. But honestly, I am not all that invested in the modern timeline to begin with. Plus, it doesn’t seem fair So Young just ends up with the King bc he fell in love with Bong Hwan, not So Young. Like he even asked why she was speaking formally near the end and felt a sense of loss looking at the Queen’s dictionary. How is that a happy ending??? The King on some level must notice So Young isn’t the person he fell in love with. How is that fair to him? And how is it fair to So Young herself, who seems alright with letting the King love her even though he doesn’t really love So Young, but rather Bong Hwan in her body? Not to mention, Bong Hwan actually started accepting that he was in love with the King. The entire show was literally us watching them fall in love. And the writers just… threw all that out the window. And somehow Bong Hwan seems ok with this??? Like how does that make sense??? Ok I’m done. This was a really good drama, it was a fun watch, but the ending really bummed me out.
