EAST OF EDEN FINALE – spoilers*****

*** spoilers ahead.

So… the ending. Dongchul dies. The worst ending I could’ve imagined. After all the fighting, death, misery, and suffering Dongchul had to go through… he had to die… and didn’t even see his son and his family reunited. The ending really ruined the drama for me. I did cry a lot at DC’s sacrifice and maybe that was the effect the PD was going for but I was seriously hoping for a happy ending. Unlike those kdramas about terminal illnesses when someone who doesn’t deserve to die ends up dying, this drama is about the battle between good and evil. These dramas deserve a HAPPY ENDING where the good guys live and the evil guys die; what everyone deserves. This ending is just cruel; out of every single character on this show, and there are A TON, DC was the one who deserved to die THE LEAST. And yet… he died.

The happy family that DC sees from heaven… is I don’t know… a dream maybe. It would be totally unsatisfactory if it was a dream b/c viewers did not get to see the effect of his death on EVERYONE. If it wasn’t a dream, and this was the effect of DC’s death… WHAT THE HELL?? It’s totally unbelievable. He was the core of the family and especially to Youngran and DC’s mom, his death would not call for some sort of celebration that we see. It is IMPOSSIBLE that they got over his death so quickly.
The whole orangey/heavenlike background… it seemed like I was watching a amateur production… it was so unrealistic. The death of Guk Daehwa was done so beautifully and yet, DC’s death and “afterlife” was treated like this…
Also, I’m still mad at DW though the ending was obviously trying to make viewers see his change back to the “good” person he was before but I just can’t help blaming him for DC’s death…

I’m seriously hoping that there’s another episode that’ll be like DC waking up from a coma or something. And his whole death, family gathering, etc. will all be in his dream. LOL.

If anyone was looking for the youtube link to this HORRIBLY BAD ENDING, here it is.
I’m not even embedding it b/c I’m so annoyed.

Super Spoiler Alert!
Actor, Yeon Jung Hoon, who was in “Sad Love Song”(super spoiler alert for that series too!) survives because in both shows, his best friend(in Sad Love Song)/brother(of sorts) in East of Eden, take a bullet intended for him, just hours after the Best friend/brother, consumed a long standing love relationship, and fathered a child that they wound up never seeing. I wonder if Yeon Jung Hoon objected, something along the lines of “not again!”
