The ending of ‘Now We’re Breaking Up’ has definitely brought tears to the viewers’ eyes. Let it be Mi Sook preparing to say goodbye to her family and friends as she succumbed to her illness.

Young Eun submitted her resignation. Thanking her whole team, she told them to take good care of SONO. A few weeks after her departure, Chi Hyung and So Young also followed her.

What Happened To Hwang Chi Sook and Seok Do Hoon?
Throughout the show, Chi Sook has had some crazy character development. From being an insecure person coming from a rich family. Chi Sook finally understood the responsibilities she had to take on. She’s a better friend now and, moreover, a better leader at the company. One of the main reasons behind this transformation is Seok Do Hoon, the CEO of Vision PR, and her boyfriend. The two went through many ups and downs. At one moment, Do Hoon was avoiding Chi Sook, and the other moment she was trying to use him for business. But eventually, the two fell in love. Chi Sook’s ex Jimmy came in between them, telling Chi Sook that Do Hoon is using her and her father is giving his company the projects so he’ll stay with her.
After almost ruining her relationship and confronting Do Hoon and her father, Chi Sook got to know that all of it was a misunderstanding. As she cried over their breakup in front of Do Hoon’s building, he came to tell her that they never actually broke up. Skipping to a year later, Chi Sook and Do Hoon are living together. As her father asked them to marry each other, they both stood up to their believes that they’d marry soon once they got ahold of each other’s lifestyle.
What Happened To Mi Sook and Soo Ho?
In the start, things weren’t good between Soo Ho and Mi Sook. While Soo Ho had an affair in the office, Mi Sook was alone at home taking care of the house and their daughter. Thinking that she might be pregnant, Mi Sook went to the doctor and got to know that she had cancer. She tried to keep it a secret, but soon her friends and Soo Ho got to know about it. Feeling guilty about his behavior, Soo Ho apologized and decided to give his job up and take care of his wife. But Mi Sook decided to skip the treatment and asked him and her friends to give her a farewell party.
She even tried to make things good with Min Kyung, the colleague her husband had an affair with. With her days being numbered, Mi Sook lived her life to the fullest. But looking at her daughter Ji Min, there were too many things that she needed to do. After coughing up blood one day and a trip to the hospital, Mi Sook slept cuddling with Soo Ho for the last time and never woke up. Leaving behind everything she could so her daughter won’t have to go through the trouble. Soo Ho, too learned to adapt to living alone and taking care of his daughter, and especially respecting and loving his wife that he never did all the years.
The Family Moved On Too…
Young Eun’s mother wanting a divorce came as a shock to everyone. But as we moved, we got to know her side of the story, and the things made sense.
