Many fans were left extremely disheartened with the knowledge that Start-Up, starring Suzy as Seo Dal-mi, Nam Joo-hyuk as Nam Do-san, Kim Seon-ho as Han Ji-pyeong and Kang Han-na as Won In-jae, aired its final episode last night. According to Nielsen Korea via Newsen and Soompi, the popular tvN drama ended on a good note as Start-Up Ep 16 scored average nationwide ratings of 4.9 percent and 5.2 percent for its two parts respectively.

Bidding a fond farewell to the drama was its leading cast as Suzy shared with News1 Korea, "I feel a mix of both happiness and sadness. During the eight months I spent in my role as Seo Dal-mi, I felt very comforted and also very happy, so I’m sad that filming has come to an end," via Soompi Moreover, the 26-year-old actress acknowledged that Start-Up turned out so well thanks to all of the amazing staff who worked hard for eight months and that it was her honour to be a part of this production. As the interview took place before the finale aired, Suzy wished for fans to support her show until the end.

Mirroring his co-star's stance, Joo-hyuk noted how all of Start-Up's staff and actors worked so hard the past few months and even though eight months felt like a long time, it still feels so short now that it's over. "I’ve learned a lot while acting as Nam Do-san and watching him grow and mature. It feels like I grew together with him. Thank you for showing so much love for Start-Up," the 26-year-old actor added.

As for Seon-ho, the 34-year-old actor confessed that the past eight enjoyable and happy months felt so long and so short at the same time. Moreover, the time he spent sharing his worries together with others will become very meaningful for the actor. "I want to give my thanks to the director, the writer, the actors, all of the staff, and especially to all of the viewers who gave their love to the drama. We were able to create a good production because we were together. Please keep Start-Up in your memory. Thank you once again," Seon-ho shared.

Finally, Han-na admitted how during the past eight months, she immersed herself in filming as In-jae while thinking off all the youth who are taking on their own challenges. "I hope that the viewers were able to gain positive energy from not only Won In-jae’s story, but from the stories of the other characters as well. Please enjoy the final episode. Thank you so much," the 31-year-old actress concluded to News1 Korea.

We're definitely going to miss Start-Up's talented cast!

The meaning of the story is that Nam Do San grows into the real Nam Do San of letters more than Mr. Han who is a cold and calculating person. While Do San becomes a dreamer it is he who wants to sail without a map while Han wants to do it with precautions. So Dal Mi finds in Do San the Do San of his letters.

It's always tear-jerking seeing grandma and Han Ji Pyeong scenes. How I wish they didn't made HJP pitiful until the end. His story from ep. 1 was already miserable.

Loved it, cried when the ladies were all together and the grandma could see her son and all the women together. I'm hooked on these shows, stored watching American TV cause it has nothing on worth watching.

Loved it! Well done! It was exciting, gratifying to watch. I think everyone/the cast did excellent! Would love to see another one like it.

Han Ji Pyeong deserved better but I'm glad he at least got a happy ending and found a family in Halmeoni. In Jae on the other hand should have been given more air time and credit, one of the best characters for me!

Love it from beginning to end. My family love Nam Do San, it was a happy ending for him and Dal mi and we love it! Light drama is great.

Ki never cared about the live triangle. The story started out well but ended being a trainwreck. It is a cliched drama made for 3 years old.

I was very disappointed- why lead this character til the end!! HJP was never give a chance to win her back... What wasn't he box he bought for her? What happened to the letters? Why continue to be part if their lives when unable to heal his heart? I doubt ill see the sequel if there is one.

Excuse me and of course to each its own.Something did happened!They grew respectively but never forgot each other.She wanted to be there with him and the others and he wanted to be back in Korea with her.Dalmi had to break it off(eventhough,it hurt her so much)for Dosan to embrace his genius.This was a well put together drama in my opinion.Guess you wanted Ji Pyeong.This was a Start Up for Dosan and Dalmi.

I can feel you I'm also teamgoodboy but HJP was also happy at the end so it's a good ending not that bad And the most important thing is that we've found HJP through this drama so if you like HJP then it's not time waste drama
