I’m so super stoked about the upcoming ending of Bride of the Century. I feel this story has runs its course and anything more than two episodes left will be overkill. The supernatural elements of this drama have been thoroughly entertaining, at times less crazy than the machinations of the living such as Kang Joo’s mom selecting a sacrificial first bride or President Ma finding a doppleganger substitute bride for Yi Kyung. In between there were plenty of hijinks, an attempted kidnapping, the second male lead got beaten into a coma, and then the second female lead attempted suicide. I wonder if the screenwriter was chuckling while chugging soju while penning the script? I say that in good-natured jest since I find the writing so fantastically loopy and even more astonishing because it all works.
The ending of episode 14 is what merits being called a doozy, sending everyone’s heads spinning in ways less creepy than The Exorcist. I highly doubt anyone suspected President Ma had any connection with the Choi family ghost, must have her former self be responsible for starting the curse or haunting in the first place. Then to see Doo Rim also existing in the past but as a savior of sorts the way she grabbed that baby from her murderous mom and backed out of that room, clearly she’s going to face yet another obstacle perhaps even greater than what she has already conquered to be with Kang Joo. What if she is actually President Ma’s daughter along with Yi Kyung, hence she is also the daughter of a murderer? Would that be the reason Doo Rim leaves Kang Joo and goes back to Namhae? I’m certain they’ll end up together in the end but am curious what would lead to yet another OTP separation so late in the game.
