The Fangirls Day 9 – 30 Day Asian Drama Challenge


I was hoping for an upbeat question today.  The dramagods chose otherwise.  Come join us as we discuss today’s question……. Beware!  There are spoilers ahead.

DAY 9 – Drama scene that broke you.

Check the tags for the dramas we discuss if you are worried about spoilers.  Have fun sharing our pain!


Jennie: Admittedly, I’m a crier. I cry at everything. If I like a drama, I usually cry. However, there are a few that stick out more than others. The ending of episode 20 in My Love From Another Star with Cheon Song-Yi’s stupid proposal video. I just watched it again and balled. Why is it so good?? Also, all of Healer.


Drama Geek: Mine would have to be the goodbye scene in Kill Me, Heal Me between Oh Ri Jin and all of Ji Sung’s personalities. Oh my gosh, when Shin Se Gi disappeared I freaking lost it. And Yo Na too. I wanted her to be BFF’s with her forever. Also, in I Remember You. The scene where Hyun and Sun Ho finally talk about being brothers and how Sun Ho felt like Hyun betrayed him to a serial killer. Oh! And Signal. There were so many times I cried in that show. Even the OST gets me teared up immediately.


KdramaJen: Without a doubt the final scene in Warrior Baek Dong Soo SLAYED me.  I walked around in a fog for days.  I was shattered into a zillion pieces and had the worst case of character withdrawal ever.

KMUSE: I am joining KdramaJen with her Warrior Baek Dong Soo despair.  It has been almost 4 years and the ending still makes me tear up a bit.  I have never cried so much when watching a kdrama before or after.  #Yoon4Ever


CKYTTA: The scene that broke me would have to be when Mi Young lost the baby in Fated to Love You.  I cried so hard that when I woke up the next day my eyes were so swollen!   Also,  Faith, when the Queen lost the baby and the King crawled into bed with her and held her and she turned around and cried into his chest.


So much crying, and yet such amazing dramas despite the sadness.  What was your kdrama moment that broke you?  Share us your thoughts in the comments and be sure to check back tomorrow for more Fangirl questions and answers.

See you tomorrow,

  1. I was just randomly watching Fated to Love You and one episode was that episode and I, the never-crier, got a little misty. In general, scenes that get me have to do with people bullying or injuring children. It wasn’t quite as emotionally wrenching but the car accident scene in The Cheese in the Trap was also hard. Surfing over to c-dramas, sometimes I watch the later episodes of Cuo/Xi Dian Yuan Yang when Huan Er thinks her husband Wu Ji is dead. Now – maybe I need to go watch some Wu Ji crying scenes.

  2. I’m a crier, so it’s hard to think of specific scenes – just hearing the OST sets me off. But certain scenes come to mind – King2Hearts [SPOILER] when Jae-ha reacted in private to Jae-kang’s death, and when Shi-kyung was shot . . . and the later scene when Hang-ah handed over his effects to Jae-shin [END SPOILER]. More recently, Marriage Contract, the scene when Ji-hoon and Hye-soo were dancing in the living room. Oh, and 49 Days, when Yi-kyung and Yi-soo said their farewells. Oh dear. Sniff.

  3. Omg
    I feel like i am heartless after reading this cuz i never cry during sad scenes. I find them awkward. But the two drama that got me a little bit sad, not teary sad, but emotionally sad is “Fated you,” baby loss scene and the OST it much sad and ” K2H”…during the King’s death.

  4. I agree with the above scenes which I have seen, especially the Fated to Love You, Marriage Contract, and King2Hearts scenes! But the one which got me crying the most was Baker King Kim Tak Gu, when I kept saying, “Oh, Tak Gu, you’ve touched my heart again”, all the while crying … the same happened when my sister and I watched it together again, and then again!! Loving these fangirling chats…thank you!!!

  5. Pretty much the whole 2nd half of Marriage Contract. And more recently, Dear My Friends in ep. 14 when they find HeeJa and she wails on JungAh. Oh, man. I don’t like to cry, I got suckered into both those dramas because I thought they would be lighthearted comedies.

  6. Answer Me series have never failed in making me cry. There is always an episode of each drama where I was a mess. In 1997, it was when Mom called the writer of a drama. In 1994, one instance was when Chilbongie called her mom. In 1988, I cried on every episode. Thats how good the writers are for me.

    The writer of Padam Padam and the currently airing Dear My Friends also knows my emotional weakness. Add the great Na Mun Hee with that writer, and I be ballin’.

    Misaeng have also made me cry. A memorable one was at the end when we found out if Geu-rae will become a permanent employee. The blocking in that scene was perfection.

    These dramas broke me, and mostly in a good way, because these dramas are character driven. the characters feel so real, that I can relate to what they’re feeling.

  7. I have to agree with Jen and Kmuse … the end scene of Warrior Baek Dong Soo… OMG, I was simply devastated!…just thinking about it triggers a strange. longing lump in my heart.
