Lately, a lot of us have been thinking about what makes a good drama ending. Even if you didn’t articulated it so explicity, if you watched Nice Guy and followed the internet chatter on how it ended, you will have asked yourself that question and you will have given yourself an answer; your answer. If nothing else, the Great Nice Guy Ending Controversy tells me that endings are subjective. However they go, chances are some people will like it and some will not. And at the same time, in some ways endings can be assessed objectively. For instance, glaring logic fail and laziness are just plain annoying.

I’ve hesitated to blog about my mega crush on Park Hee Soon because, well, it’s kinda embarrassing. Also, I have some vague notion of keeping my blog spazz-free and classy (ha ha). But without too much pushing from my enabling friend Thundie (evidence here) I thought, Oh what the heck.

(Only very faintly spoilery fangirlying and picspamming after the break. Enter at your peril…)
