It becomes clear that Yoon Young actually did not die at the end of the film. She gives birth to a healthy baby girl named Bo Ni. We see this child in a flower bed with Jang Mi and her husband. It feels like the couple has taken it upon themselves to take care of the child and maybe even adopt him, given that Yoon is still too young to do so.

The concluding scenes show that Yoon Young went back to her mother’s house and lived with her for the next 5 years. She is also seen graduating from the civil services after years.

  1. This movie is emotional. And this is not a satifying ending for me. Maybe yoon will marry a guy she liked and grow that baby with him. Anyway this is my first korean movie.
