HIGH SCHOOL: LOVE ON - EPISODE 20 (FINALE)


Seul Bi: "Sorry I made you wait so long."

RECAP

When we last left off, Sung Yeol was in a coma, and Seul Bi was nowhere to be seen. Two years later, Woo Hyun is at the university with Sung Yeol, who is now a player. Sung Yeol"s dad is working at the rice shop; he quit the force to be a good dad to both Woo Hyun and Sung Yeol. Young Eun and Ki Soo are now dating.

Seul Bi is back, only she doesn"t remember that she is Seul Bi. A Sunbae (who is now mortal and bears a glowing mark on his wrist) poses as her brother and guardian. Wherever Seul Bi goes she is recognized, and insists her name is Cheon Sa Rang. The President of Earth Angels tells Woo Hyun the tale: she lost her memory because she sacrificed herself to save Woo Hyun, and Sunbae sacrificed himself to save her. And hopefully Woo Hyun"s love will help her memory return.


Jae Seok v. the new bullies

Life continues for the group. Tae Ho and Joo Ah have a relationship crisis, Jae Seok tries to stop some bullies and is saved by Da Yool, and the President of Earth Angels gets Sunbae a job. He is now Cheon Chang Jo, the new Literature teacher at the high school that the kids used to attend. Of course everything works out in the end. Finally, after being saved from a car by Woo Hyun, Seul Bi"s memory returns. They tearfully embrace, and we see the group celebrating Christmas together.


Merry Christmas!
