Marry My Husband ending explained

The finale of Marry My Husband is a thrilling and worthwhile conclusion. The fast-paced, heightened tension, with a touch of melodrama, is bound to keep audiences glued to the screen. The clever manipulation of the two main leads, Kim Ji-Won and Yoo Ji-Hyuk, and the satisfying downfall of the villains, Jung Su-Min, Park Min-Hwan and Oh Yu-Ra, is a rollercoaster ride. But there is never a single hint of it will be a happy ending or not.

Although Yu-Ra is a supporting character until the end, it's definitely a well-played role. The character has a clear purpose, unlike Su-Min and Min-Hwan. The blooming romance between Jin-Won and Ji-Hyuk, even in a dreadful situation, gives viewers a ray of hope. However, Yu-Ra’s downfall is totally expected, as she only focused on ruining Ji-Won and not on finding ways to save herself.

The last episode acts as a perfect supplement to the intense events of the previous episode. What impresses about the show is how the scenes mirror Ji-Won’s past life, creating a satisfying sense of interconnectedness and closure. The last episode expertly ties up the loose ends. While the past of Marry My Husband was not always smooth, one of the main reasons for keeping audiences captivated is the fresh twists and turns in each episode.

The finale serves as a masterclass without leaving any matters unresolved. It's a testament to the execution of the writers to ensure that every character and element of the story fall into place by the end of the final episode. The most swoonworthy part that the writer gives viewers is Ji-Won and Ji-Hyuk’s happily married future with two kids. K-dramas usually don't stretch stories this much, and this is one of the main reasons for Marry My Husband’s immense appreciation.
