I don't have much in the way of meta for Nice Guy's final episode but I am very content with the way it ended for Eungi and Maru.

The finale, like much of the latter half of the season, left a bit to be desired. It felt rushed and the happiness for all ending felt a bit contrived, even unearned. I'm absolutely boggled by the complete erasure of Tae San, which for all intents and purposes was the most important character of the drama.

Up to the final five minutes I was ready to be disappointed by it all but those final five minutes won me over completely.

There was something so classically romantic about it that I admit to being charmed by it. It isn't the kind of ending I would have expected from Nice Guy and yet somehow it worked. It was effortless and felt like the beginning of something wonderful.

It really worked for me in the romantic sense, rather than the rational sense, because after holding onto so much pent up bitterness, resentment, and pain, it was a pleasure to finally see these two people give themselves permission to exhale. It was a kind ending but I think very fitting and I couldn't be happier for them.
