Hi, I've been watching YH for just a few months now here in New Jersey on WYBE Phila.....I'm not able to watch everyday but I can get caught up easily......My question is this: We were just at the part where (?) I forget his name was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer...........This has been developing for some time now.........All of a sudden one day I sit down to watch and BAMMO.........all gone....Instead there was One Million Roses..........Now I have been watching OMR and I'm getting into it a little but what happened to YHK....It coulen't have ended at that point....There were too many loose ends..........Can anyone shed any light on this matter for me because I'm baffled......I would appreciate it........After signing off here I'm going to write to the programming dept in Phila and see if I get a response
Sang Min died and last I saw his ex girlfriend received a call from the wife saying that they'd given him a nice memorial. That was the last day it was aired here. I hope this isn't the end of that show.....I was really hooked.

Sang-min's death was the last episode, Ja-young and Young-joon were married and lived happily with Ji-min (Ja-young and Sang-min's son) and another child (it was a girl, I think), Sun-joo (Min-joo's little sister) ends up with her manager, Mi-ryung and her mother both had a baby of their own, Min-joo and Yuna lived on together...that's about all I can remember.
You're right, Ja-Young did have a baby girl. I hate that it ended. I really got hooked on that show....and I am not a soap opera fan. There are so many loose ends....and so many directions the story can take.
Though I’m sometimes a little lukewarm about Korean daily dramas (they’re often just a little too soap-operaish for my tastes) I have to admit that “Yellow Handkerchief” was flat-out terrific. Without a doubt, it’s one of my all-time favorites from Korea.
So, I’m REALLY unhappy that they discontinued the series midway for all you Philly/NJ viewers. What a shame, missing out on the conclusion of one of Korea’s best efforts!
I remember posting a summary of the final episode over on the California board (almost, I see, two years ago)! So, I cut-and-pasted it here. I hope it will help tie up the loose ends for all our friends in NJ and Philly.
YELLOW HANDKERCHIEF – Final episode:
At home, a very pregnant Ja-young tells Ji-min to get ready to meet Sang-min. She apologizes for putting him through this. As they leave, Grandma Sohn sees them off. She tells Ji-min to go and spend some time with him, and that maybe that will help him get better.
At the hospital, Sang-min seems barely conscious, but he awakens when he sees Ja-young and Ji-min there. Sang-min tells Ji-min that “uncle” has been sick, and Sang-min’s father somewhat angrily reminds him that he’s his father, not his uncle. Sang-min’s father urges Ji-min to call Sang-min “father,” but Sang-min tells him that it’s okay, he doesn’t have to. But Ji-min calls him “daddy” anyway, and both are tearful.
Sang-min then tells Ja-young that he’s sorry: sorry he hurt her; sorry for everything he’s done to her. And he tells her that, just as Yuna is his daughter, Ji-min is Young-joon’s son.
Outside, Min-joo admits to Sang-min’s father that she was the one who asked Ja-young to bring Ji-min to the hospital. He thanks her for doing so. Later, Sang-min’s father tells Sang-min that he’s seen a whole new side of Min-joo, and that he should get well and support her.
Back home, Ja-young tells Young-joon what happened. She tells him that if Sang-min really does die, she may someday – in the very distant future – be able to tell Ji-min that his birthfather really loved him.
A few months later (June) we see that “rumor has it” that Sun-joo is getting married, but that her fiancée’s parents disapprove, because she’s an entertainer. But we do see them exchanging rings, promising to wear them forever.
Sang-min is living his last days at home with his family. He’s leaving messages to Yuna on his computer, making up a list of books for Yuna to read in the years ahead. But he’s so weak, he can’t quite finish, and he goes to the bedroom and then collapses on the bed. Yuna hops on the bed beside him and opens up her “Winnie the Pooh” music box for him to hear. Sang-min dies just as Yuna’s music box suddenly stops working. She repeatedly asks her father to fix it, but he doesn’t answer her.
And, as Sang-min dies, Ja-young gives birth to her baby daughter at the hospital.
A few days later, Min-joo calls Ja-young, telling her that Sang-min had been laid to rest. She congratulates Ja-young on her daughter.
Final scene: Ja-young, Young-joon, Ji-min and their new daughter pose for a family photograph. They snap the photo and freeze the frame. And then, they roll the final credits.
EDIT: I just checked out the Philly board, and it appears they DID show the ending?? I'm not sure - did you just miss it?
No Mikey, I did see the end as you've described it. I just think that it ended too abruptly. There were too many loose ends...and many turns that the show could have taken, if it had continued. I'm hoping for a sequel some where down the road.
hello to all im manilyn from philippines... its nice seeing and reading your comments and giving a birds of view of this drama..you know guys ive been watching more korean dramas before, and i've listed some of my favorite dramas and actresses.i tot it was the last lists m not watching korean dramas anymore coz i hate seeing the leading star died but with "a rosy life" and yellow handkerchief so nice to watch.. i really really like the story of that 2 dramas. i love seeing lee tae ran with her wonderful hair in rosy like. i love the way she carries her elegant dresses..how i wish i could see her again in tv...does anyone here can tell me the real name of that doctor who's happened to be the boyfried of lee tae in "a rosy life"?

Hi, Marilyn. We don't really run an information service here, but you're welcome to check in any time you like. Also, you might like to know that we did see "Rosy Life" here in Chicago, but it was called "War of the Roses"--there should be a message forum two or three above this one (they're generally alphabetical) in the "Off Air in Chicago" board--you'll probably find information about actors' names if you dig hard enough. Heaven knows we discuss them a lot here. Also, maybe other shows you like will be there. We've long stopped discussing Yellow Hankie (although it was well loved) here, but there are lots of other discussions.
