Descendants of the Sun

Letters to Kdramas: Descendants of the Sun (and awesome male leads)

This letter will be super brief.

Dear Descendants of the Sun,

I get the hype. I wasn’t going to buy into it, but I love you. Please stay awesome until the end. And daaaamn Jin Gu, back at it again with that stoic frown. You gorgeous man.
I love shows that fully transport me into another world, and youare full-scale, gorgeously-shot military-medical-fantasy. So flipping wonderful. You’re a complete 180 from Heirs (except maaaybe in usage of OSTs), which delights me like crazy. No grabby males! I love what I’ve seen of all four leads, and I’m dying to see more. With Cheese having failed to show that pre-produced dramas are better for both viewers and actors, I’m hoping that you can serve as a counterexample. Stay awesome, show. Please stay awesome.
And a huge thank you to Kang Mooyeon for representing the inner self of every straight fangirl

Only…there weren’t many good parts about this episode. To be frank the whole thing leaves me with a very bitter taste in my mouth. So I’m just going to list the seven things I hated about this finale and why even the few good parts were frustrating. Because all I had to say after watching this was…
