“Hong Gil Dong” is nearing the end of its run and viewers have been actively posting on the official site bulletin board recently to express their ideal ending.
Viewers are most concerned over who will Yi Nok (Sung Yuri) choose between Gil Dong (Kang Ji Hwan) and Chang Hwui (Jang Geun Suk) at the end. One side supports “GilNok” romance and hopes that Yi Nok can’t forget Gil Dong, doesn’t care about Chang Hwui love for her and choosing Gil Dong at the end.
The other side however supports “HwuiNok” romance and supports her leaving Gil Dong and accepting Chang Hwui’s love and becoming his Queen.
According to Olive 9 production, “No one knows how the drama will end. But the most important task at hand is to bring joy and tears to viewers in the remaining three episodes. We want to make the viewers feel moved by the scenes and let the viewers remember this drama in their hearts forever.
Episode 21 of “Hong Gil Dong” talks about how Chang Hwui isn’t the legitimate king afterall which represents a big storyline twist. There were rumours that “Hong Gil Dong” might have an extension but Olive 9 has denied the reports and said that the drama will end on schedule at 24 episodes.
