K-Drama Reaction: Laughter in Waikiki | Finale

Despite the rushed story line in the finale, it’s still a feel good ending for our three misfits. They have been through so much together, and even though we don’t get to see their movie succeed in this timeline, let’s just hope for the possibility of having a Season 2, yes?

Soo-ah and Du-shik

It seems like Son Seung-won does not always get the girl when he’s in JTBC territory! Just kidding. But the Du-shik (Son Seung-won) and Soo-ah (Lee Joo-woo) love line pretty much got a decent end to their endless bickering as close friends. They fight so much like Tom and Jerry, yet care for each other as BFFs. The open ending to their relationship is good in the sense that Du-shik never really realized Soo-ah’s worth on his own. He cares for her, but the show did not explain whether as a friend or as a woman. Don’t forget that Du-shik’s personality has always been the forgiving and caring one. So maybe he needs more time to think if he likes Soo-ah for real, and not just because she confessed to him unexpectedly?

Jun-ki and Seo-jin

I’m going to miss Jun-ki (Lee Yi-kyung) and Seo-jin (Go Won-hee) so much. They bring the laughter in Waikiki. Seo-jin as the Wolfman of Huam-dong who shaves her facial hair regularly, and Jun-ki as the struggling supporting actor who takes on every role he can get were two of the most hilarious characters ever in K-dramaland.

Jun-ki’s ultimate sacrifice to let go of everything just to be with Seo-jin was a bit exaggerated, but that’s how they were since the start. They started from the bottom and worked all their way up, so what’s the matter if he loses the chance of working for a big agency, right? At least he is still surrounded by the people who truly loves him, and he has a girlfriend who will never leave him.

Dong-gu and Yoon-ah

My gosh, these two. I know the appearance of Sol’s dad would eventually happen, and I actually expected exposure for him than Hyun-joon, but oh well. At least Sol’s dad knows not to stretch the losing battle.

I loved how Yoon-ah (Jung In-sun) reacted to the whole situation. I command her for not being shaken up by the sudden appearance of her ex. She only knows one thing – and that is her appreciation and love for Dong-gu (Kim Jung-hyun). And because of her firm stance that she will be with Dong-gu no matter what happens, it’s easier for her to explain to Sol’s dad that they will never get back together again. He had his one chance but he left, and now, another man has claimed Yoon-ah’s heart, so he has to give up now. At least, Yoon-ah is still willing to give Sol’s dad a chance to their baby whenever he wants to.

Dong-gu and Sol

I cried when Sol called his real daddy “appa!” I was asking myself, “So after all those episodes that Dong-gu teaches her to say the word, she finally said it and in front of her real dad, nonetheless!”

But then, I cried harder when Sol said it twice when Dong-gu was for to leave for his movie shoot. So it was for Dong-gu after all. Sol was not calling her real daddy “appa,” maybe it was her way of telling him that the one who was carrying her was her father now… that she considers Dong-gu as her new appa.

Du-shik, Jun-ki, and Dong-gu

I miss this trio. Their own brand of comedy will surely stay in my heart despite all the gross instances. We may have not seen them finish their movie, but at least the Du-shik, Jun-ki, and Dong-gu that we saw in the first episode definitely evolved and became better people in the finale. They are now willing to risk everything they have to finish their own movie, with a bonus of three beautiful girls who like them very much.
