Yeah it was disappointing ending. But love can yaman, so would watch watever he’s in ♥️


Aug 19, 2023

If you watch on YouTube and it’s 81 episodes, the last episode is the longest and it’s filled with a ton of music played by different people/bands. I was disappointed with the ending. It’s like they had 10 min of acting. Then filled with tons of music to make it as long as previous episodes.
