Korea Drama Spotlight Ending (Spoilers Alert!!)
"Spotlight", which revolves around the lives of news reporters, had been losing ground due to a number of complicated issues such as changes in writers and poor storyline and directing. I just finished watching the last episode of "Spotlight" and was disappointed that there was not much focus on the relationship between Woo Jin and Tae Seok. I was hoping to see more development of their relationship and not just the occasionally scenes hinting that the two main characters have feelings for each other. I feel that there was too much focus on the last case that both of them were trying to report on and viewers most probably got bored along the way.
This might have explained why "Spotlight" ended its run on 3 July in Korea on a sour note and its constant poor ratings. This is such a pity as the drama had started off with an interesting and exciting plot and a great casts and i was initially hooked on the drama but the lack of love plots really drag it down. There were far too many serious overtones in the entire drama. Only the first story involving the convict on the run, Jang Jin Gyu was interesting and the part where Tae Seok was really worried about Woo Jin's safety and the hint of more feelings for her made the episode interesting. It is such a pity that the drama did not have a great finishing and must have left lot of viewers like me frustrated after watching the ending.
