Mi Dong finally understood why Yuri was sent back.

Apparently, Yuri’s mom (Jeon Eun Suk) wished to see her daughter again. It’s the reason why she came back to life! It was even hanged on the temple where she always prays.

“I want to see my daughter once more.”

Jeon Eun Suk saw her daughter cleaning up her room.

Yuri asked why her mom kept her things untouched. This is sad because she’s starting to say good bye to her mom. The mom knows that her come back is temporary.

Cha Yuri created a bucketlist!

She invited her ghost friends for a samgyeopsal party! It’s funny because people can’t see the ghosts.

Hi Bye Mama Ending: Happy or Not?

Cha Yuri left with no regrets. She was able to do all the things she wants. She left knowing that her husband and child will be in good hands together with Minjung.

Although others are not satisfied with the ending, I think that everybody deserves a happy ending even Minjung. From the start, she showed that she can be a good mother to Seowoo and a good wife to Gang-hwa.

  1. This is actually why I love Kdramas. They have unexpected twists & turns and endings.I am one of those who wants to have a hint of what they are about to watch or read. I’ve been seeing this series on Top Rated Kdramas and I can say that this deserves to be really included.

  2. I love the ending! I thought it felt a bit abrupt and I was kinda bummed because the other ghosts’ stories aren’t settled yet, but it’s a realistic closure and I couldn’t ask for more! Not a single hateful character in this drama, even Minjeong is so relatable and easy to empathize with.

  3. Yung nakamove on na ako dito kahit papano tapos nabasa ko uli. Naiyak nanaman ako. Huhuhu one of the most touching series ive ever watched. Nanay kasi siguro ako, i feel for yu ri.

  4. Happy ako sa ening kasi realistic yung ending. You can’t asked someone to stay kung patay niya siya talaga and she’s lucky to be alive even if it’s just 49 days to do the things na hindi niya nagawa when she was alive.

  5. I like the ending. It’s “undramatic” and fitting under the circumstances. And because I love the character of Minjeong.

  6. So interesting to watch this. Nun nalaman ko ending mas na excite nako panoorin.?❤️?
    Thanks for this Ms.Karla.?

  7. Hindi ko pa napapanood ito Ms Karla, pero base sa nabasa ko, it’s a good ending po para sa story. And base sa Title rin na Hi Bye Mama, I expected na ganito ang ending
