Best Love (The Greatest Love) wraps up today with a giant bow, a farewell flourish, and a parting kiss to all the viewers who were swept up by the story of a top A-list movie star who fell in love with a D-list entertainer. Episode 16 made me happy – a warm, soothing feeling of sincere joy. I don’t think the ending manipulated my emotions, but rather deserved the soft tears of happiness that came naturally.
This feeling of contentment really brushes aside any desire I have to dissect the final plot points or even discuss how the ending could have been better. While not the best ending for a rom-com ever, nor does it push any boundaries, but it was ultimately so very satisfying. I don’t need to look hard for validation with the time spent with BL, it’s a drama that stands well enough on its own
