Yoon Soo has something hidden about his past which eventually ruins his present. The rumor about him having the scholarship to go and study abroad is false, and it ruined his life. However, it benefited someone else. That other guy is In Young’s ex, Chan Hee. Chan Hee broke up with In Young, after telling her that he would like to go abroad and study in Paris instead of being in a relationship with her. He claims that she is an obstacle that is stopping him from all the success and fame. She still has not gotten over their nasty breakup but heals a little by little as she starts living with Yoon Soo.
Ending Again is followed in a more mature concept of “XX”, with improvised scenes. Even though the characters have more adult relationships, the drama had a cute vibe overall. They did a marvelous job with the ex-boyfriend theme as the female lead is heartbroken and remembers all their good times as a couple. As the drama progressed, we got to see that their relationship wasn’t all kisses and flowers, rather, they had been starting to have a lot of problems.
To conclude, there were some parts that the drama which were not handled well. Probably because the length was too short and some plot lines were not properly explained or forgotten. The ending was somehow let down the audience a little, as the forgiveness part was rather quick and they never had a proper talk about it. Still, the drama was extra cute and had enough romance to make the fan’s heart flutter.
