In 2022, many Korean dramas ended with unexpected scenarios.
In recent years, Korean films with sad endings have appeared more and more. It seems that after a long time with many works having come to an end, kimchi filmmakers are trying to bring back the separation – yin and yang separation scenarios like the time of Autumn in the Heart.
These days, Big Mouth’s tragic ending is becoming the focus of attention. The film is about Park Chang Ho (Lee Jong Suk) who is a first-rate lawyer but gets caught up in a huge power conspiracy. In a moment, he turned into the notorious criminal Big Mouse and was sent to prison without understanding.
Many viewers were “broken heart” when the character Go Miho died of cancer.
In the end, Park Chang Ho defeated all the villains in the elite, and became the next Big Mouse. However, he would not be able to do such unimaginable things without the help of his beautiful, brave wife Go Miho (Yoona).
Miho has been by Chang Ho’s side since they were in school and spent the difficult days with him. If it was another person, when Chang Ho was in danger of being in prison until “wet”, Miho could completely choose to leave. However, she has a strong belief that her husband is unjust and finds ways to help her husband.
Things would not be worth mentioning if Park Chang Ho and Go Miho lived happily and happily together. However, when Chang Ho’s plan to rebuild justice is about to succeed, that’s when he lost his good wife to cancer.
