I Miss You (Missing You) Final Episode 21

So, I Miss You has come to an end. It wasn't a great drama, but it wasn't bad either. I think that, despite a dreary and frustrating script, the actors were able to bring some light to this drama. Park Yoo Chun was the center of all comedic scenes, and I think he carried them well. As for Yoon Eun Hye, I love her, but I didn't see her usual glow in this drama. I understand that actors should have range and play different types of characters, but YEH is at her best when she is allowed to be playful and have fun. There were a few glimpses throughout the show of YEH's cuteness when she had sweet scenes opposite Yoo Chun, though. I think their chemistry is what kept me watching.

The acting that stood out to me in a big way was Yoo Seung Ho as Kang Hyung Joon. I found myself hating him and then pitying him and then hating him all over again. When he cried, I felt his anguish, and when he glared evilly at Jung Woo or Han Tae Joon, I felt his hatred. Even though Seung Ho was trapped in the overly melodramatic world of I Miss You, his acting wasn't over the top. I hope to see Yoo Seung Ho in more leading roles in the future; he has skills.

The final episode brought most things to a conclusion. Jung Woo's dad ended up in prison, Hyung Joon went crazy like his mom, Jung Woo remained as a detective, and Soo Yeon, Jung Woo, and family lived happily ever after together. Mostly what I got from this show is the same thing that I get from every Korean melo, wasting your life seeking revenge is a waste of time, and it ruins things for everyone else. I don't often come across people in my day-to-day life who are actively seeking revenge, but if I do meet someone like that I will surely tell them to give it up and just live their life.
