Despite my best intentions I checked my flist, terrified out of my wits about what kind of ending we will get. I am still pretty close to utterly unspoiled but the one thing I do know is that they end up together. I don't need to know anything else until I watch. Now I can breathe.

I just watched the final episode...


Even though I wasn't emotionally invested in the drama or the couple, I teared up a bit in that last scene.

By the previous episode I was already pretty sure this would have a happy ending for them (because usually dramas follow the pattern of "happy times = upcoming doom" or "terrible sad times = upcoming happy ending").

It was very moving how he kept on waiting for her all those years. And how she went back and forth, completely abandoning her life in the future, and risked getting lost in God-knows-what-year in the past with just the hope of finding him.

The ending did justice to the drama's title... faith. There was tons of blind faith to go around with this ending.

On a completely shallow note: Lee Min Ho looks very very hot with that little beard. He should have kept it throughout the drama. His very young and clean-shaved face kept distracting me from the fact that he was an experienced and badass Great General.

MY ONE GRIPE: Why oh whyyyyyyyyyyyyyy did they just stand there looking at each other?! I know it would be too much to hope for a great final kiss but... how about a hug? Damn you drama gods!

Am I wrong or is the "kiss count" (between Choi Young and Eun Soo) in the entire drama just ONE? One measly awkward kiss (more like lip-smashing) in front of all those people?

Three kisses actually - political kiss (there was lip movement, basically unheard of in a sageuk, and with a married actress no less), the CPR one and the aspirin one. Far cry from QIHM make-outs but still three more than we normally get in a sageuk.

I love both his unwavering waiting for her and her time jumps (interesting, he had the passive role and she the active one).

I agree, I loved the little beard. But then I am fond of facial hair on men. Too many sageuks brainwashed me.
