A New Doppelganger Or A Hint For One The Woman Season 2
Lastly, Once again, One the Woman ending has not disappointed us with the short twist they added in Episode 16 with the possibility of Season 2. The airport scene where Yeon Joo and Seung Wook finally come back shows us a little twist. It reveals a woman in fashionable clothes and accessories from top to bottom walking in the opposite direction of the duo. However, the little twist here is the lady looks like Yeon Joo! How can it be possible? We all know Kang Mi Na has undergone surgery to have a new face. So there is only our Yeon Joo’s left. But then who is this woman who looks exactly like Yeon Joo?
For that, viewers have come up with various theories. Some think she may be Kang Mi Na, who has done facial surgery once again to get her face back. The other fans assume she may be Kang Mi Na’s aunty since she had previously asked where she did the surgery. The former assumption does not stand much, but the latter one seems valid. There is a high chance, Kang Mi Na’a aunty did facial surgery to look like Kang Mi Na and get hands-on Yumin Group. Also, that short hair really resembles Kang Mi Na’s aunt. Or maybe that woman is a real Doppelganger, just like Kang Mi Na and Jo Yeon Joo were. What do you think? Is she a Doppelganger or Kang Mi Na or Kang Mi Na’s aunty? Who is she?
The writer has left that question open for us to answer. It may be an indication of One the Woman Season 2. Or just a small twist to wrap the story with a mystery. In short, it is up to us to decide who is that woman. One the Woman ending has wrapped perfectly, giving us a little twist with the hope of Season 2.
