    I start to feel so tired though I am in deep love with TMETS! :(

  • Kristie

    haixx… So many difficulties with
    Lee Hwon & Yeon Woo love story, not in the film but also with the airing…
    Don’t say that we viewers must wait for 8 years more to reunite with TMETS and
    see the happy ending! How can we can do like King Hwon who kept pure love in
    such a long time? :P

     

    Whatever you do, you all must show
    strong respect to viewers who give such great love to this drama than any!
    Anyway, I still love TMETS the best! Please! :((

     

    By the way, for the ending, I hope for a happy
    ending! In case the scriptwriters want a sad ending to make deep affection, please
    let both Lee Hwon and Yeon Woo die embracing together but don’t separate them again!
    I can’t stand if they apart again.
