A Business Proposal starring Ahn Hyo-seop, Kim Sejeong, Seol In-ah and Kim Min-kyu came to an end on Tuesday.
One after the other, several K-dramas have come to an end. The season of endings began with Forecasting Love and Weather and Thirty-Nine followed by Twenty-Five Twenty-One. Now, A Business Proposal has also come to end. The fun K-drama, starring Ahn Hyo-seop, Kim Sejeong, Seol In-ah and Kim Min-kyu in the lead, was based on a webtoon of the same name. The K-drama was so popular that even BTS singer Jungkook was a fan of the show. With the Business Proposal finale airing on Tuesday, we are happy to report that both of it has ended on a happy note.
Warning: Spoilers Ahead:
The finale episode of Business Proposal began with the events after Kang Tae-moo (Ahn Hyo-seop) and Shin Ha-ri’s (Kim Sejeong) steamy night. Tae-moo offers to make breakfast for Ha-ri and even drops her home. As they prepare to part for the day, Ha-ri’s parents catch them. After an exchange of words and even a couple of beatings from Ha-ri’s mom, Tae-moo and Ha-ri finally sit face-to-face with Ha-ri’s parents. Tae-moo is interrogated about how and why he fell for Tae-moo. He reveals it was love at first sight and assured her parents that he would be by her side come what may.
The discussion then comes to an end when Jin Young-seo (Seol In-ah) suggests that they focus on their birthday celebrations a little as well. She and her boyfriend Cha Sung-hoon (Kim Min-kyu) change the mood by bringing out the Champagne and the family sits together to drink. After a few drinks, Ha-ri’s father steps out for a smoke and Tae-moo follows. The emotional father tells him that Ha-ri has sacrificed numerous interests such as acting and singing for the sake of the family. He worried that she would have to give up on her love for the family but Tae-moo assures him that it wouldn’t be the case.
After Tae-moo gets Ha-ri’s family’s blessings, it is Ha-ri’s time to win over Tae-moo’s grandfather. In the 10th and 11th episodes, it is seen that Tae-moo’s grandfather is strictly against the relationship. So much so that he asks Ha-ri to break up as well. But when all his tricks fail, he decides to fake an illness and gets admitted to the hospital. Assuming that he could coax his grandson into breaking up on the basis of his illness, he is left in shock when Ha-ri walks to be his caretaker for the night. While she starts winning him over, Tae-moo’s grandfather tries hard to not be smitten by her. Clearly, it fails.
While Tae-moo and Ha-ri were already tackling the issues surrounding their relationship, the doctors inform Tae-moo that his grandfather has been diagnosed with a heart issue and that surgery might not be a good option. Heartbroken, Tae-moo is torn between his love for Ha-ri and his grandfather. He decides to leave for the US for his grandfather’s treatment and tries to convince Ha-ri to join them. Ha-ri refuses, suggesting that his grandfather’s needs should be put first and that he is not approved of her yet, thus accompanying them might only cause inconvenience to his grandfather. Tae-moo agrees, asking her to wait for him as he gets his grandfather treated.
On the other hand, Jin Young-seo learns that her father had lied about his approval of her relationship with Cha Sung-hoon. Heartbroken, she confronts him in his office and resigns from his company. She returns home to Cha Sung-Hoon and tells him everything that unfolded between her and her father. She confesses that while she thought she would feel good, it only hurts her more. Having resigned from the company, Young-seo decides to start a small business of her own. Sung-hoon offers to fund her project, giving her a chance to fulfill her dream.

The show takes a leap of one year, showing that Young-seo and Sung-hoon are still together and madly in love while Ha-ri manages to keep in touch with Tae-moo via video calls. Her parents start worrying about Tae-moo’s return when a scandal breaks out, suggesting that Tae-moo is dating a musician. To make things worse, Tae-moo stops picking up her calls.
An angry Ha-ri decides to take off for New York and confront her boyfriend. Just as she leaves for the US, Tae-moo returns, clarifying that the scandal is merely rumours and he has been waiting to reunite with her. Relived, the couple decides to take a walk when Tae-moo reveals that not only has his grandfather recovered but he has also approved of their relationship.
Under the beautiful cherry blossoms canopy, Tae-moo proposes to Ha-ri. While she teases him that she needs time to think before she says a yes, Tae-moo slips the ring on her finger. In the webtoon, the couple is shown to have tied the knot and have children as well. However, the K-drama ended with the proposal. Given the ending, it is unlikely that the series would return for season 2.

3 details that make the end of A Business Proposal cause controversy
A business proposal has a happy but incomplete ending..
A Business Proposal has officially ended after 12 episodes, with a happy ending for both main couples. Accordingly, Tae Moo ( Ahn Hyo Seop ) successfully proposed to Ha Ri (Kim Se Jeong) ; and Sung Hoon ( Kim Min Gyu ) and Young Seo ( Seol In Ah ) moved in together to live as husband and wife.
However, this ending to many audiences is a disappointment. The last episode builds up the plot too quickly, the knots that have not been tied yet have been removed and above all, there are countless entanglements about the relationship between the characters.
1. Jin Young Seo (Seol In Ah) wanted to cut ties with her father because of love
After hearing that her father asked Sung Hoon to end their relationship, Young Seo announced the severance of the father-daughter relationship. “It’s because of you since all you care about is money.” “You kicked mom out because she wasn’t up to your standards and you want to separate me from the man I love” are the reasons she gave.
Isn’t it too unreasonable that with just that number of reasons, Young Seo decided to cut ties with her father. Just because he didn’t respect her wishes, forbade her to marry someone she didn’t like and only think about money and status all day long. So who is wrong in this case? Or is the series trying to spread the idea that if your father does not agree with you , you should cut ties with him? Is it too wrong to build conflicts between father and daughter from the beginning of the series and cut off the relationship at the end of it?
2. Still be friends with the one who you have crushed for 7 years?
A Business Proposal successfully built an obnoxious supporting male role who left the female lead alone for 7 years but then he was angry at her when he heard that she had a lover… But it seems that everything that Lee Min Woo (Song Won Seok) is doing is too superficial and half-heartedly. His influence did not make Tae Moo – Ha Ri ‘s love increase or decrease, the 7-year relationship between him and Ha Ri affected neither her love story nor her daily life.
The ending of this character is also sloppy. He decided to go to Europe to travel and hope that when he returns, the two will still be friends. The two do not come to an answer to the ambiguous love story for the past 7 years. Moreover, the trouble that Min Woo ’s girlfriend caused to Ha Ri is solved by just an indirect apology. So, what’s the point of building a relationship between Ha Ri and Min Woo for 7 years?
3. Constructing the ” Yes there are but for what” episodes
The ending of “ A Business Proposal ” is predictable as a happy ending. Therefore, it causes a feeling of dissatisfaction, even boredom. There are no plot twists, everything is too predictable. There are even unnecessary details that do absolutely nothing to the drama.
“ A Business Proposal ” crammed all the details ranging from contradictions, solutions to misunderstandings in just 60 minutes. As a result, the drama became sloppy, clumsy and everything was all over the place. Typically, Tae Moo ’s rumors of love went viral among the press but this problem was solved by just a simple explanation. This makes the audience feel like the episode is useless and has no contribution to the drama.
The most worth discussing thing is still the scene of the unexpected and rather superficial proposal scene when it only lasted 3 minutes of the main couple. The fact that there was no romantic wedding has triggered the audience. If this were a tragic drama, letting the couple be together would be enough. In contrast, this is a soft romantic drama so why didn’t they have a proper wedding?
A Business Proposal aired the last episode on SBS on the evening of April 5th.

What Happened to Tae-moo?
CEO Kang Tae-moo ( Ahn Hyo-seop ), finds himself torn between his love for Ha-ri and his ailing grandfather.
He decides to leave for the US for his grandfather’s treatment, asking Ha-ri to join them but she declines. However, Ha-ri suggests that his grandfather’s needs should be put first.

What Happened to Ha-ri?
Shin Ha-ri ( Kim Se-jeong ) stands up for herself and her relationship with Tae-moo despite the public scrutiny and Grandpa’s disapproval.
When Tae-moo leaves for the US for his grandfather’s treatment, Ha-ri declines to go with him but promises to wait for him.
One year later, Ha-ri is still working as a food researcher with her team at Go Foods.
Her long-distance relationship with Tae-moo is going strong with the two keeping in touch via video call. But Ha-ri has doubts when a scandal breaks out about Tae-moo and a cellist and he won’t answer her calls.
She decides to confront Tae-moo in person, heading to the airport to catch a flight to the US. She meets Tae-moo there who clears up the cellist misunderstanding (the cellist’s family planted the story about her and Tae-moo).

He has a lot of money saved up: 1.7 billion won!
One year later, Sung-hoon is shown building a model home.
Why? I have no idea and the drama doesn’t bother explaining. Sung-hoon didn’t follow Tae-moo to the US for Grandpa’s treatment so he couldn’t work as his secretary.
Maybe he just took the year off work? It’s not like he needs the money anyway!
What Happened to Young-seo?
After overhearing her father ask Sung-hoon to break up with her, Young-seo ( Seol In-ah ) quits her job at her father’s company and cuts ties with him.

Episode 12 of Business Proposal begins with Ha-ri’s parents finding out about her relationship with Tae-moo.
Her parents are concerned about the power imbalance in their relationship with the huge differences in their social and economic statuses.
Tae-moo has a heartfelt conversation with Ha-ri’s father and earnestly promises to protect Ha-ri.
After their initial bout of suspicion and worry, Ha-ri’s parents give the couple their blessing.
Business Proposal Ending Review
I’m not a big fan of how Grandpa finally gave Ha-ri his seal of approval off-screen. I enjoyed their relationship when Ha-ri was pretending Geum-hi and I was hoping Business Proposal would mend their relationship sooner so we could get the comedic duo back.
Grandpa’s disapproval and surly attitude while understandable was not entertaining and a bit of a downer in the final episodes.
I do appreciate that despite his anger at Ha-ri’s deception, Grandpa was genuinely looking out for her. He knows the malicious gossip and negative scrutiny Ha-ri will face being in a relationship with Tae-moo and was trying to protect them from that.

Netizens Express Their Discontent Over The “Happy Ending” Finale Of “Business Proposal”
Why is the audience not satisfied with the ending of “ Business Proposal “?
After 12 stormy episodes, “ Business Proposal ” finally ended with a happy ending for the two main couples. Kang Tae Moo ( Ahn Hyo Seop ) proposes to Ha Ri ( Kim Se Jeong ) after a year of long distance love.
Young Seo ( Seol In Ah ) quit her job at her father’s company, moved in with Sung Hoon ( Kim Min Kyu ), and the two even established their own company.
Such a satisfying ending, but the audience is still not satisfied.
The problem is because in the last episode, the main couple took a year apart, then met again and ended the love story with an unexpected and rather superficial marriage proposal.
The audience longs for a fairy-tale wedding or at least there must be more eye-catching emotional scenes for this couple.
Audience reaction after the last episode:
- Episode 12 is too short and the ending is rushed? ㅜㅜ Please make it up to episode 16, get married, have a baby, and please do it.
- It felt like an abrupt ending, so it was very disappointing ㅜㅜ
- I don’t know why it’s only episode 12 ㅜㅜ I think we need to have an Season 2 ㅜㅜ Why are you making such a short drama?
- I’ve been waiting for Monday and Tuesday with excitement, but it feels like it went by too quickly… I think it would have been better if it was a 16-episode series. The two of them were so lovely ㅜㅜ I hope to see them again in the next project
- At the end of the day, It feels like the main couple was thrown out in the back room while solving an episode with the people around them!
- As it was made into 12 episodes, the last episode unfolded too quickly and the ending felt like it was just a proposal ㅠㅠ The 16-episodes format is the rule of thumb.
- It would have been better if there were 16 episodes.. Happy ending is good, but it’s too bad and unsatisfying.
- I think episode 12 is a bit short. I feel like something has ended abruptly. The existing 16 or at least 14 seems to be necessary.
- Until episode 14?… No, it would have been great if there was only 1 extra episode. It’s too sad to end with 12 episodes. It’s a happy ending, but why do writers end up with such a hazy ending?
- Drama special these days: “You don’t have to watch the last episode. You’ll get disappointed”
- In the original story, I was looking forward to the scene where Tae Moo’s Grandpa stepped forward and took the side of the sub-couple and said that he was my grandson…. Suddenly, it was a proposal-like ending, and the feeling of watching it was broken.
- If it had been 16 episodes, it would have been a wedding scene for Tae Moo & Hari. It’s a really good drama. It’s good because there’s no stuffy development. I was really happy watching this drama.. Next time, please do 16 episodes!

The happy ending of 'business proposal' is considered unsatisfactory for this reason.
In the webtoon, the main couple of "Business Proposal" also went on their honeymoon to Hawaii. During this moment, Kang Tae Moo gave his wife all the best.
In addition to the HaTae couple, the second "Business Proposal" couple, Jin Young Seo (Seol In A) and Cha Sung Hoon (Kim Min Kyu), also held a wedding that was no less spectacular. Their wedding also contains important details related to Shin Ha Ri's younger brother, Shin Ha Min (Byungchan). Shin Ha Min has secretly loved Young Seo for a long time, not having the courage to confess his feelings. But in the end she has a beautiful love story with a character named Yu Ju.
The fact that "this century" marriage was not included in the drama "Business Proposal" also disappointed many viewers. How about you guys?
