Magical Moments Advent Calendar Day 16

We count down the days to Christmas by unveiling 24 magical Kdrama moments. Next up, “Fated to Love You”. SPOILER WARNING

Episode 18 of Fated to Love You


With rumours of his genetic disease swirling around, madcap chaebol, Lee Gun (Jang Hyuk) decides to step down as CEO of Jangin Chemicals, his family company. Having spent the last three years driving away Mi Young (Jang Na Ra), the woman he loves, there’s an air of finality about his decision, as if he’s given up on continuing with his life.


Unaware that Mi Young hasn’t yet left the country, Gun puts on a press conference to announce his resignation. What he doesn’t know is that Mi Young has found out about his disease, and knows that he still loves her. Just as Gun sits down in front of the cameras, Mi Young fights her way through a throng of reporters, cabs across Seoul, and dramatically bursts in on his press conference.


Mi Young tells him that she knows everything, and dares him to tell her that she means nothing to him. Instead, Gun tries to have her thrown out. When Mi Young refuses to leave, Gun confesses that he tried to drive her away, because he can’t stand to see her in pain. He claims not to have any right to love her, but undeterred, she tells him she loves him, and kisses him.


Gun stands firm at first, a tear tracking its way down his face, but eventually he gives in and kisses Mi Young back, and everyone’s head explodes into hearts and flowers.

  1. “and everyone’s head explodes into hearts and flowers.” Mine definitely did, in spades.

    No other drama this year touched my heart as much as Fated to Love You did. No other. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it and this scene with so many others were indeed truly magical.


  2. I am with you @Panda315 and to think I almost didn’t watch this drama. I went in for Choi Jin Hyuk but stayed for the snail couple. I haven’t re-watched a drama yet but this has been added on my small growing list.


  3. This show is high on my list to marathon. I’m one of the only people in the world who hated the original, but Korea’s remakes of My Queen (Witch’s Romance) and Nodame Cantabile have given me confidence in the treatment of Fated. I’ve liked Jang Na Ra since way back My Love Patzzi, so, bonus.
