My Mister K-Drama Review: Is It Worth The Watch?

Talking about My Mister k-drama review, it is definitely worth a watch. Having an open ending, the k-drama My Mister ends on a beautiful note. The writer of the show, Park Hae Young, is known to write realistic characters. The main characters part ways, meet again later, and then part ways again after greeting each other with respect and love. For the ones who are a fan of platonic relationships instead of the romantic ones, it’s a must-watch. Throughout the story, we see Dong Hoon and Ji An getting close to each other. But the two never cross the limits in the context of romance and are still able to help each other.

But if you are a fan of cliche k-dramas who always hope for the main leads to end up together, My Mister might come as unfulfilling to you.

We do get an ending where the two main leads are doing amazing in their lives. (Park Dong Hoon left his old job and started his own company and is doing amazing. And Ji An left the city and is living on her own terms with a new identity) But the two parted ways. They did meet again and were happy to join each other for a meal. But the two say goodbye once again and go their own ways. But in the end, if you do decide to watch My Mister, it is guaranteed to make you cry.
