• Unexpected Ending
With all the chaos and tangled situations, we cannot even expect a happy ending for Jeong Hyeok and Se-Ri. The show depicted an overwhelming relationship between two Koreas, who would not allow a couple to meet each other as their fate this is what is shown in the final episode where both the individuals are separated by their respective governments, but evidently for good.
In the final moments of the drama, the couple meets in Switzerland. They realize and accept that they can’t be together in their native places. But they work out a plan to spend quality time together at some neutral place, either for weeks or months.
