Meanwhile, speaking of Start-Up, the final two episodes will be airing this weekend, i.e. December 5 and 6, as we'll come to know if Seo Dal-mi (Suzy) ends up with Nam Do-san (Joo-hyuk) or the writer adds a twist and gives Han Ji-pyeong (Seon-ho) a happy ending with Dal-mi instead.

Ppl really need to stop with the " ship - wars " ... it's just a drama .. srsly ? Degrading nam joo hyuk and his character do san just because they prefer han ji pyeong ... if even kim seon ho can recognize nam joo hyuk's acting talent and compliment him it gives us all no reason to criticize the other character ... yes han ji pyeong is a really great actor and shined in this drama but both actors and their characters have their own charms .. please dont put down one another 's opinions just to " win " the arguement .. both actors have worked hard in this drama , they dont deserve all this toxicity from the viewers :) if ure a real fan please just watch it without any toxic biased opinions and watch it to support the hard work everyone put in this drama .. not sabotaging the drama and " only watching it because of so and so or i would have dropped it long ago " or " i skipped all the parts without so and so "

Congratulations Kim SeonHo! You deserve it! You may not be the lead on this drama but better things will go your way. There's no point arguing with people who's better for Dalmi in this show because we all know who the male lead is on the show. That's why I lost interest on it. It was not plotted right. Made it seem that JP and Dalmi were soulmates/ understood each others feelings even without seeing each other and because Dosan was the one always physically there she falls in love with him. The grandma might have started it for JP to start writing the letters but he's the one who continued to be her friend and connected with her emotionally. That's why its all poorly written on how it shows physical presence is more important than emotional connection. Eventhough Dosan liked her and did things for Dalmi he still didn't have that connection that Jp and Dalmi had. Team JinPyeong all the way!!!!

It is not really easy to accept the truth. Kim Seon Ho is the real winner being casted in Start Up drama. It is not a joke to top the ranking for actors brand reputation as a second lead. He won hearts of many Korean fans and even international audiences. His character as Han Ji Pyeong is the most loved character in this show. Even if he could not get Dal Mi in the end, he is already a winner.

The show was funny in the beginning but got too entangled in this love triangle around an actress that it's that great and the whole Start Up theme suffered from it. The poor choice of lead actress reminds me of Fugitive Plan B, but at least they had an interesting story... Nam DS would have been a great couple with Jung Saha and conversely Han JP was the perfect match for In Jae... The writers didn't do a good job so far with the storyline. I just keep watching cause I like the cast, safe for that Suzy girl whose acting is really dry and uninteresting.

The actress you’re talking about is HALLYU actress Bae Suzy.In Korean wave u will not be included in that category if you’re not good in acting.In Start Up she nailed it.

Kim Seon Ho is really goodlooking, but I like Nam Joo Hyuk best!! With Start Up, I am confident that DoSan and DalMi will end up together. Because they are soo destined!! I really admire how amazing Nam Joo Hyuk's acting here. It felt real and gave such a greal portrayal of a genius, shy type, introvert, nerdy guy in a new way. I was convinced how he expressed all his emotions, when he's happy, hurt, unconfident, bubbly and hype on his skills. I love Joo Hyuk!!

We all know NJH is such a good and handsome young actor but in this drama NDS character is not that strong enough to touch people' heart he'd suddenly pop up, , ,but KSH acting as HJP is on another level we'r watching him since young and he suffered and struggling a lot of things he's doing his best to survive and follow what granny wants to do DM to be happy HJP dis so many good things , , ,

Pandemic let me discovered the beauty of K-drama. never watched one before...Anyway, Congrats to KSH's accolades brought upon by the the show! Sorry to HJp's legion but his character in the drama is.kind of weak to deserve SDM. He maybe an astute businessman, but kinda undecisive...always hesitating. Boy if you want to win the girl of.your dreams ...be Bold like Dosan! In short its all his fault. Ergo, DODAL in the end. Congrats to All of.the cast behind this wonderful show ! You did a great job. Hope to see more future projects for NJM and Suzy together!

People.have different opinion...but HJP was indecisive as far as his feelings towards SDM...He should have epressed his intent early on the show...He always hesitated...in short he is weak...He may be a good businessman but not true in the arena of courtmanship. Ergo, DODAL at the end.! As far.as.acting is concerned, ALL of the cast did a terrific job in their respected roles. Sorry to.disappoint HJP legion but I like Dosan bettter..Hope to see future projects for Suzy and NJH ! Kudos to the creative movers behind the show...you did a wonderful job! Thank you guys and be safe !

Whatever ending story!!! were happy because Kim seonho did a great acting:-))we all know he is not the main character but he really captured our hearts!! congratulationss our "goodBoy"

Congratulations kim seon ho!!!. Meaningful end should be ji pyeong with dal mi. I don't know what the writer is thinking. Is making ji pyeong fool after all ,he is the reason do San and dal mi have met and ending her with do San makes it a foolish ending. It would have been in the top if she would choose ji pyeong as most of the viewers want it!!!. Isn't it very unrealistic do San returning and fixing the problem and nothing happened in between ji pyeong and dal mi for three years... This drama made me very hurtful, i had high expectations in the beginning, why they are doing this????. Lots of love to Kim seon ho, flirting smile;) so cute....

Kim seon Ho's Acting is Better than To Nam Joo hyuk that's why Jipyeong is number 1 trending in any kind of social media.

I prefer Kim Seon Ho and Dalmi (Suzy) will be together at the end. With all the ups and downs of her life, Dalmi's motivation to go on with her life are the letters from Han Ji Pyeong. Those letters were written with all his heart too. Anyway, this is just my honest opinion.

Anonymous 2 months ago

May be in the begining he started writing for Grandma sake but later he started enjoying those letters himself as he was also lonely with no one by his side.

Those letter were never written with his heart though. It was her grandmaa who instruct to write those letters.

The story is a big mess, particularly the 3 San whose acting are irritating. Only Eps 8 and 13 measure up to the title Start Up. I am skipping a lot of scenes while watching. This is a big let down for Suzy with Seon-ho saving some pride for the show. Nevertheless i keep watching because of Suzy.

Anonymous 2 months ago

Funny enough, Suzy ruined the show for me. Her acting is really dry and she could not carry the whole show on her shoulders... Yet, everything revolves around her which is annoying. Nam Do San would've been better with Jung Saha (lawyer/designer) as their bickering was a lot more entertaining than seeing NJH beg for Dami's love, and Han JP should have been paired with CEO Won In Jae. Their character and looks match better, even in interviews. Suzy/ So Dalmi is more on the level of the friend who lost a brother, in both looks and character. The Start Up theme is really drowned in this boring love triangle revolving around a boring actress. They had to dumb down everybody else, especially the other female characters to make her shine. Seriously, the story was wack even though the beginning was funny. Han Ji Pyong staying iddle for 3 years is also hard to believe... Simply put, we watched because we liked some of the actors but not really for the story itself.

HJP is meant for SDM. Writers and producers did HJP injustice in episode 13 by making HJP idle for 3 years. That's not what and who HJP is. He's a competent guy. Shame on the producer, making the drama so predictable. We should just ship the producers and writers with NDS, it's plain stupid.

Totally AGREE! the writer makes no sense on this! For 3 years- Dalmi and Jipyeong could have atleast talk about their status- the writer should have explained to the viewers that her love is only for Dosan- rather than making us think that there's a chance for Dalmi and Jipyeong! We all know that the MAIN LEAD is dosan and it should have been great if his character was build up in the middle, rather making us think that theres a chance for Jipeong and dalmi! and why can't dalmi's character be more straight forward? like the writer could have explained to us that he fell in love with dosan who has big hands! I mean realistically speaking, if I were Dalmi, and I know that Dosan with big hands is not the Dosan in the letters- I would be very disappointed and would still continue to love the Dosan who is my FIRST LOVE, my confidant, my friend. I woudn't have forgotten about him in that instant! But that's great thing about being the writer, its your story and the viewers are just simply an instrument to either love or hate your work! After all, they all worked amazingly for the past 8 months inspite of Covid! Overall, It was indeed a success! Thanks alot for all the cast and esp. shout out for KSH! who has been all over twitter- trending! Nam and Suzy both have their successes in their career! but this time lets give it up for KSH! its his PRIME and hopefully more to come as we open the NEW YEAR 2021!

Sorry but how can HJP is SDM's true love... And frankly speaking she never loved HJP , she loved the person who sent letters. HJP was a total stranger to SDM how can she love someone else when her heart belongs to Do san.

Sorry but you are wrong NJH is amazing and cheer for ur fav without dragging other character down.

Anonymous 2 months ago

Precisely. The writer makes Jipyeong look stupid. In 3 years he could have married Dalmi under realistic condition. Its obvious that the writer is saving Dalmi and Dosan in the end because Dosan is lead. The writer could have build up Dosan's chatacter instead of making him look like a bumbling moron who only knows how to encode.

I feel Director Han realizes Dal-mi and Do-San are truly in Love.. , especially witnessing Dal-mi emotional breakdown over Do-San in episode 14. I hope the writers use Director Han to assist in cementing Di-San and Dal-mi’s relationship. He’s the reason they fell in Love. He brought the two together. They’re such a beautiful couple meaning Dal-mi and Do-San..

Because jipyeong is the only reason for their meet(dosan and dalmi).As for jipyeong and dalmi they are fated, even from the beginning and he of course is her first love and they have many years of true love, comparing to dosan who came in the middle and just met for a few months
