It's last ep now :( I thought it wouldn't come..! I hope everyone would be happy..! Let's see if CY can beat GC!

GM says "How dare u? U going crazy?" GC says "I just came here to get back mine." At that moment, CY comes in. GC asks CY to bring ES to him. CY's servant dies while trying to save CY. CY gets angry and says "Someone give me a sword. And everyone go out guiding GM." GM orders "Don't let him to fight alone..! Help him." But CY resist for his servant help him. And GM insist to stay with CY. GC says "Bring ES here. Before u do it, I will kill ppl one by one. What are u gonna do with the hands?" GM also worries of it, and suggest him to stand back, but CY continues to protect GM.

In the meanwhile, ES wakes up. She says "I was worried if all things are dream." Choi servant asks if she was toxified and checks her. Then she finds ES has no more fever and average pulse frequency. She got cured from poison finally.

HSI and CEJ are going to catch ES, and CY's servant notice it.

CY asks GM if he can kill GC. But GM asks to GC if he has thinking to negotiate. Then GC starts to persuade CY. "Are there anything which GM did by himself? CY've done all the things. How about for you to be King instead? If u need order from King of Won, I will get it right now." CY replies "7 yrs ago, my teacher also had same question. And he replied with his life. But now I realize he's wrong. I already got King's mind and what more do I need?" After hearing his saying, GC thinks he dragged enough time which is needed for his servants to catch ES.

CY's servant says the news to ES and she's about to runaway. Suddenly HSI comes in and attacks ES's guards. They protect her and kill HSI, but ES got caught.

GM and NK are talking about ES. NK says "If ES comes back, there's saying I'm gonna tell you. Think about CY and ES."

CY goes to find ES. GM asks "If you find her, are you gonna follow her to heaven?" He replies "I already told you I'm not gonna follow what my teacher did. I came back for you, so let me find my lady."

ES wakes up in GC's home, and CEJ asks who killed HSI but she says she doesn't know. GC says "I'm gonna go with you to heaven. You said there would be way to heaven in your things. Here it is."

CY's friends tires to find ES, and one of them remember a place which GC used frequently.

ES sees her stuff and get surprised.

CY's friends all over the place try to find where ES is, and CY leave alone to find her.

ES says to GC "It's not sure thing, but it seems like it's related with burst of sunpot. But It's first time for you to go into the gate, and you can't be sure what world you will go. I can guide you till the gate, but let me go in front of it." But GC says "We will go together. We have to."

GC and ES arrives in a lodging. While they're taking rest, CY knows door. GC says "Let's go together, but ES attacks him and runaway. GC runaway, and CY sees ES is fine. "Tomorrow the gate is opened, right? You have ppl to say goodbye in ur world. Let's go there tmr." ES worries if GC comes and disturb them, but CY comforts her, saying "I can beat him."

Next morning, GC tires to enter in the gate, but he can't. He asks how to go in. ES says "Just go in." He says "U lie continually. Let's die together. It's end if u die." Then he threaten ES, and CY dies while protecting her. Dying, CY thinks 'Why I brought this person from heaven?'.

In the meanwhile GC gets up and drags her. Resisting him, she goes to 21 century alone. There she gets tools for surgery in hospital. She runsaway to go back and enter into the gate. But when she entered, it's not Go Ryeo. ES says 'I still doesn't know what's wrong at that time.

But when I came to the world which CY belongs, there was no CY. It was 100 yrs ago from Go Ryeo. However I believe he wouldn't die. Someone said if I hope for sth, it makes memory and makes the hope come true.'

Then she goes in the gate and comes back to Seoul. Then she goes in the gate once again. She finally comes back to Go Ryeo. She sees CY's servants and hear where CY is.

She then talks about how someone said… hold on to the moment, and that moment will bring the memory.
The portal opens again, and she goes in, returning to 2012..
She then goes back into the portal again… she goes into a shop, and talks to some warrior that is dressed like a woodalchi…
She asks about the time now and all, asking how long has the current king been the King.
Someone reports five years….
She walks further in, and she sees Woodalchi!!!
All are older, with longer hairs.. Deokman and Daeman quarrles again, and CS scolds them!
Eunsoo smiles.
She rushes to the place where she got separated with Young, and Young is sitting there in front of a tree, with moustache!
She sees him and smiles at him in tears… 
He smiles back at her, he has been waiting all these while omg sadiuhduishdoisauhdoiu
They just stood there, looking at each other…

Actress Choi Ji-woo will return to the small screen with a Korean food and cooking cable channel’s new program.

She is set to lead Olive TV's “Choi Ji-woo’s Delicious Korea” alongside famed Korean designer Jung Ku-ho, an official from the broadcaster told the magazine over the phone Tuesday.

“We’d been looking for an iconic Hallyu star for the program’s host and Choi was the one,” the official added.

The upcoming show is aiming to promote Korean cuisine and culture to the world. The two main hosts will criss-cross South Korea and introduce regional food to the viewers.

Choi made her debut as an actress in 1994 through MBC's talent audition. While she has several hit dramas and films under her belt, the actress became one of the most popular Hallyu stars after starring in KBS 2002 hit "Winter Sonata."

“Tale of Arang” actor Yoo Seung-ho has heightened the dramagoers’ expectation with his still-shots from Park Yuchun’s new drama.

MBC, the broadcaster of "Missing You" [translated title], revealed Yoo’s images through its press release sent Tuesday.

The pictures, particularly the one featuring Yoo hitting a window wall, express his restless character Kang Hyung-joon, who cannot be loved by his crush Lee Soo-yeon [played by Yoon Eun-hye].

The upcoming melodrama will pivot around a detective named Han Jung-woo [Park Yuchun] and fashion designer Lee who live with a broken heart from their first crush.

Penned by scriptwriter Moon Hee-jung of "Listen to My Heart" (MBC, 2011), "Missing You" is set to hit airwaves on November 7.

2012 Korean sports drama film "As One" is likely to meet Japanese audience.

The Ha Ji-won and Bae Doona starrer is mulling over to open in Japanese theaters late this year or early next year, with its Japanese title “HANA- 46 Days Miracle,” the pic’s distribution firm CJ E&M told the magazine Tuesday.

Although the official said the detailed opening schedules and venues has not been fixed yet, the main cast members are already set to kick off their promotion activities there.

Ha, director Moon Hyeon-seong and supporting actor Kim Eung-soo, who already visited Japan for the pic’s promotion in April, will fly to the island again to meet with Japanese audiences at Tokyo's Cinemart Shinjuku this Friday.

The “King 2 Hearts” starlet will then jump to Osaka to introduce the film during its special screening session in the 28th One Korea Festival, to be held at Osaka International House Foundation on November 3.

Based on a true story from the world table tennis championship held at Chiba, Japan back in 1991, the movie tells a story of two legendary ping-pong players Hyun Jung-hwa [played by Ha] and Lee Boon-hui [played by Bae], each from the South and the North.

Due to the two countries’ conciliation mood, they are set to assign the United Korea team for the first time in history. The two rivals and their fellow athletes get closer and closer while playing against the Chinese team in 46 days’ championship game period.

The touching film, originally released in local theaters on May 3, has attracted less-than-expected 1.8 million moviegoers due to its too didactic stories.

[Article] Bae Yong Joon's Gorilla in the Cafe: Flexing Hawaiian Coffee Muscles in Waikiki.

Waikiki has to be one of the most touristy areas on the planet, with people from across the globe spilling over sidewalks. The Honolulu hotel and shopping district sure has its share of chains, but hidden in plain sight are some focused culinary specialists. On our most recent trip to Hawaii, we were staying at the Waikiki Parc Hotel, and around the corner, a strange sight caught my eye, a flashy green La Marzocco espresso machine. Spotting top-flight coffee equipment signaled serious coffee at VG Gallery Studio Cafe in Taipei, and that same indicator led to some of the best coffee we’ve had in Hawaii, at Gorilla in the Cafe.

Korean actor Bae Yong Joon opened his glass-fronted cafe in July. He also owns a restaurant in Seoul called Gorilla in the Kitchen and respects the animal’s health and strength. The interior features reclaimed wood walls and houses the aforementioned La Marzocco, two Mazzer grinders, a Bonmac pourover coffee bar, and a healthy retail presence. The gorilla also serves shave ice, but we were happy to enjoy that Hawaiian treat elsewhere.

We started with 100% Hawaiian Hand Pourover, roasted by Pahala-based Isla Coffee.

A menu near the register features seven different selections, which might include Maui Red Catuai, Ka’u Washed Typica and Kona Magarogype. It’s not often to see the coffee varietal featured so prominently on a menu. Clearly, the gorilla enjoys educating customers.

A barista named Sam filled me in and prepared my coffee. Maui Mokka Peaberry ($4.66) promised “flavors of lychee, hibiscus, rose, orange and chocolate.” It was bright, and fairly floral, but does anybody ever really sense exactly the same tasting notes as the label dictates?

Honolulu’s Downtown Coffee roasted a four-bean espresso blend, including beans from Big Island, Maui and Oahu. Sam pulled a smooth shot that was satisfyingly bright, without much bitterness.

Of course Gorilla in the Cafe sells bags of coffee to go, in case you want to take the experience elsewhere. Apparently it’s also possible to be a gorilla at home.
