tvN’s mystical fantasy horror-romance-comedy drama Hotel Del Luna ended last September 1, leaving viewers a spell bound finale that highlights the importance of accepting destined fate interlaced by bittersweet love.
The last two episodes of the drama gave masterpiece plots that made viewers cry and laugh while appreciating true love and letting go of grudges held towards others.
The Departure of the Hotel’s Employees
The hotel’s beloved employees composed of the bartender Kim Sun Bi, front desk receptionist Ji Hyun Joong, and housekeeping in-charge Mrs. Choi left for the afterlife without any regrets after they individually resolved their grudges.
In three different heart-breaking scenes, viewers were given the chance to learn more about the life stories of Man Weol’s closest hotel members in her years as the owner.
Sun Bi gave us hope that it was never too late to clear a name and let the world know the truth about someone. Thanks to the other two ghosts who helped him out and wrote his story accordingly.
Moreover, seeing Hyun Joong’s agony was totally disheartening but soon we learned that he was still able to leave peacefully with her sister despite the tragic story involving his childhood friend, who also became his murderer.
Finally, Mrs. Choi also headed to the afterlife after she saved a pregnant woman who carries a child of the family she despised so much. It was touching to see Man Weol hugging Mrs. Choi before she leaves and thanking her long-time employee for her kindness over the years.
Sending Off Man Weol to Afterlife
The love story of Jang Man Weol (IU) and Ku Chan Sung (Yeo Jin Goo) reminds us that love requires sacrifices and heartaches. It teaches us that we have choices in life, between revenge and mercy at times.
Eventually, we learned the power of decisions we make. It highlighted the chance to choose over fate and vice-versa, especially when the two (Man Weol and Chan Sung) chose to accept their tragic love story by telling Man Weol not to drink the wine.
In the end, Chan Sung’s relationship with Man Weol is special since he must be the one to see her off. It highlights the selfless nature of his love, and it makes their romance so powerful.
