After watching the final episode again, it wasn’t as bad as the first time. I guess the shock and disappointment has worn off and I’m in a calmer mood to analyse the ending.

Ji Mong left the palace with parting words to So that Soo may not be of this world.

Then we see the sun covered by the eclipse like Ep 1 when Soo was transported from present time to Goryeo.

We see So standing in the darkened Goryeo recalling what Soo said during their stroll.

Soo: If we had met in another world and another time, I was thinking how great that would have been. Truly, I could freely love you all I wanted.

Then cut to So wiping away the concealer and revealing his scars - symbolises he is giving up his throne and Goryeo life. He has no one left and nothing to look forward to anyway.

So: if we are not from the same world, I will find you, my Soo

Can we assume So himself (I like this better) and not his descendant will cross over to present time in search of Soo?

But of course, they could have added in a brief So-Soo meeting in present time: meeting of eyes across the room or back hug as a simple closure. But no, they have to end like this 😭😭😭

Why Lee Joon Gi Won Our Hearts During The Drama Awards.

He is very polite. 

When other teams just greeted from their seats with a smile when the MC was introducing them to the viewers. Lee Joon Gi led his team, he stood up and together they bowed to the viewers. 


He shares the glory. 

Every time he won an award, he hugged and gave high-five to all his Scarlet crew. 


He is full of consideration. 

During the best couple award session, Lee Min Ho had to receive the award with Shin Won Ho since Jeon Ji Hyun was still shooting. Knowing that the male couple might be awkward, Lee Joon Gi approached them first to give a little encouragement. 


He shows his love. 

When Baek Hyun said that he loves his brothers and sisters in the Scarlet crew, Lee Joon Gi immediately shot a heart at him and he’s happy. 


He never forgets to thank his fans.

On the way to the stage for receiving the Top 10 Stars Award, Lee Joon Gi turned back for a while and waved to his fans first before proceeding to the stage. He is so lovable. 


He is naturally chic. 

You could tell that he’s so confident, comfortable and that he enjoyed every moment of the show. 


He is friendly with his junior. 

Though Lee Joon Gi is older and 8 years more senior in the industry. He still automatically greeted Lee Min Ho with a slight bow and friendliness when they met on stage. He is everyone’s favorite senior. 


He respects his senior. 

When Kim Sung Ryoung arrived on stage, Lee Joon Gi welcomed her with a bow and smile. He is such a fine young man. 


He is a gentleman. 

Lee Joon Gi thought that Kim Sung Ryoung was the last one in the Top 10 Star Awards. Being a gentleman, he let her to slide to the inner side, so he could stand on the outer side in line. 


He overcomes obstacle. 

He won the Hallyu Star Award that night which means he is the most popular overseas. So the MC tested him to deliver his thank you speech to his international fans in English, and he managed to deliver it well. 

Click to watch his English speech. 

And that would be all the reasons to love Lee Joon Gi. His acting was brilliant in Scarlet Heart Ryeo and he deserved more awards. May the humble actor return to the dramaland soon in 2017 with a new exciting project!
