'Itaewon Class' Episode 16: Finale with Park Bo-gum's cameo and much deserved ending for Sae-ro-yi and Yi-seo
It is time for the finale of 'Itaewon Class' and I have mixed feelings.
It is truly one of the best Korean shows in recent times and to see it come to an end is hard, but all of it is would be worth it if Park Sae-ro-yi can finally lead the life he deserves without the burden of hate and guilt in it.
He has definitely taken the necessary initial steps in Episode 15. First by realizing that he was in love with Yi-seo enough to let go of his father and then, by letting go of his pride for her when Jang Dae-hee continues to be a monster.
Now, in Episode 16, all we wait for is to hopefully see Yi-seo and Geun-soo get saved before Jang Geun-won gets Yi-seo killed. Will Dae-hee really reveal where Geun-won is holding Geun-soo and Yi-seo as hostage? Yes, Sae-ro-yi did kneel in front of Dae-hee just as he was asked too. However, considering what a monster he is at the moment, we just cannot be sure. Since there is no promo, the curiosity has only gotten the better of us and we cannot wait to see how things pan out.
There is many things that need to be wrapped up at this point before the show ends and that includes the fate of Soo-ah. Now that she has been rejected by Sae-ro-yi, where is she headed? She had also resigned from Jang Corporation and given Dae-hee an ultimatum about covering up the crimes of his son once again, so she will have to face the consequences. However, will we see how this pans out?
There is also the fact that Dae-hee is terminally ill. He doesn't have too much time on his hands and yet he would have to wrap up the affairs of Jang Corporation before his death. So it would be interesting to see the fate of his company, considering all his evil plans were for the welfare of his company. Will Kang Min-jung (Kim Hye-eun) be taking the company over or will Geun-soo continue his plan and work in Jang Corporation?
We are rooting for Yi-seo and Sae-ro-yi to get together in the show, but there is another couple who I personally wish would get their happy ending as well, and that is Min-jung and the former detective who has an adorable daughter. It would definitely be lovely to see them together.
