It wasn't the most satisfying end, but I wasn't disappointed either. It seemed to me that maybe neither guy will end up with her. Gwanpil may develop something with the new female recruit, Suho might lose Yeongin by respecting her choice to work on her career while she becomes interested in her new superior, fondly examining his ID's, just as Suho did with hers. Just my take on the epilogue.
I thought the ending was good. From the previews I was afraid she was going to die. And I had the same take as you did, walkingscience. I think they all remained friends, but got on with their lives as well.
Would someone please give me a synopsis of the last episode? My electricity went off in some bad storms on Monday night and just came on again today. I won't be able to see the repeat of this show today. Thank you.
I can't recommend enough going to mysoju.com for catching up on missed episodes - i was cruising the titles and came across a show called Air City. one of the main three leads is an extremely babyfaced Yi Junwuk...aka President's son!! So far am loving it.

Because I’m very opinionated, I’ve waited until everyone voiced their opinions before I gave mine.
Let’s begin with the scene where 6 bodyguards are pointing guns at an ex-bodyguard who’s pointing a gun at them. He shoots one of them (because of her foolishness) and then he escapes. How did that happen? In his escape attempt he’s hit by a car (otherwise, I believe he would have gotten away). If they were trying to put some excitement into the end, they should have come up with something better than that.
They didn’t tell us what happen to him. Did he die? Did he become paralyzed? Did he live and go to prison? Did Lily’s 2 fathers agree to continue to raise her together? Other questions come to mind but these are the important ones.
Needless to say, I’m disappointed in the ending. Eight weeks wasted in waiting for a conclusion that didn’t do this drama must justice.
Yes, i have to agree but it was similar to the 9-5 hours of the bodyguards themselves. The President appeared to have round the clock guards, but his son either had the 2 guards or none - there was never any thought given to 'handing off' to the next shift. (The president's son never needed bodyguards from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m.
Plus that last scene where Kang Suho is talking to Lily in the car .... the President's son is driving the President's granddaughter to public school (!) with no bodyguards in sight!

I watched the last 5 episodes on veoh - so I don't know what was shown on CH41 for the last episode.
It was the way described above - HOWEVER, at the absolutely last scene, Yeoungin is sitting in a WHEEL-CHAIR with her dad sitting next to her on a bench - they are in a garden field and it's a very peaceful scene - that's how it ends -
SO??? Was she paralyzed due to her being shot? No explanation and a very confusing scene for me. The other part of Ggit nim having 2 "dads" take care of her - that's okay with me - I think that's the best solution for that - but for Youngin?? I sure didn't like that ending for her.
Otherwise, I did think this was a pretty good drama and it kept me interested throughout. But that ending . . .
Besides everyone else's excellent comments, I didn't like Gwanpil portrayed as his former sullen chauvinistic loner persona in the epilogue. Would he have disdained CY's advice, concern, and their partnership just like that?? That would mean he never grew as a person, and that doesn't make sense for a character of his intelligence.
And I would have preferred they kept the interaction between the three main characters instead of sidetracking with the custody over Lily issue. I lost some interest once that plot line began to take over.
Sorry my motherboard died and I couldn't log on sooner. I ended up watching the last ep online before viewing my tape of the last 2 eps.
I don't remember which viewing ended with the storyboard "An Epilogue of Their Own." What was that saying: the Cast was unhappy with the wheelchair ending and wrote their own ending?
It's too bad I have to rely on subtitles. WOCH's translation of Suho's diary (?) note to her was extremely lame, "I want to be a good person". Online the translation was approximately, "I want to be a lover deemed perfect in your eyes."
With that translation, I was a little more comfortable with the ending. Without it, I thought the writers dropped the ball on an otherwise entertaining, but rather chaotic story.
