Korean Drama Formidable Rivals/Powerful Opponents Ending (Spoiler Alert!!)
I finally finished watching Formidable Rivals and was abit disappointed that Young Jin and Gwan Pil did not end up together. It was an open ending and in the last 2 episodes, it almost seems like Young Jin does have feelings for Gwan Pil and that gave me hope that they would end up together as i have a soft spot for Gwan Pil who has been sacrificing alot for Soo Ho and his family. It is clear that he likes Young Jin but he does not have the courage to confess his love for her as he is afraid that they cannot even be friends or workings partners if things don't work out or if Young Jin actually likes Soo Ho.
However, i guess the ending is also fair as alot of viewers are divided over Young Jin ending up with Gwan Pil or Soo Ho. I read on some drama websites that some viewers prefer Young Jin to end up with Soo Ho and the open endings would give viewers the chance of imagining their own perfect endings :> I also felt very satisfied after watching the drama as i finally know the secret between Gwan Pil and Soo Ho which i have been curious about since watching the first few episodes. It was a nice twist as i had not even guessed that Gwan Pil's daughter actually turned out to be Soo Ho's and Gwan Pil has been raising her as his own to protect Soo Ho and his family from the scandal that would hurt his family if everyone knows that the president's son has an illegitimate daughter. The child actress who acted as Gwan Pil's daughter was also very cute and acted very well in the drama.I have also found some more pictures of the drama and added it in my blog for fans of the drama.
