See You in My 19th Life is a 2023 South Korean drama based on a webtoon of the same name. The Netflix series stars Shin Hye-Sun as Ban Ji-Eum and Ahn Bo-Hyun as Moon Seo-Ha.
The K-drama is the story of a girl who remembers all her past lives. In her 19th life, she decides to reconnect with someone dear from her 18th life, which was cut short.
Ji-Eum reincarnates in a poor family in her 19th life. She runs away as a child and takes shelter at the house of a woman, who was Ji-Eum’s niece in one of her lives. Shin Hye-Sun’s character forces herself into Seo-Ha’s family company. While the two begin to create a bond, Ji-Eum reunites with her sister from her previous life. However, she doesn’t know the consequences of letting others know about her superpower. In the finale, things might not have ended as viewers expected but it was a happy ending indeed.
See You in My 19th Life ending explained: Ji-Eum forgets Seo-Ha
Starring Shin Hye-Sun and Ahn Bo-Hyun, K-drama See You in My 19th Life ending turned out to be a bit complicated. Although it was not sad, it also didn’t show the lead couple together.
Min-Gi helps Ji-Eum remember her first life, in which the former killed her sister and let her die as well. In that life, she met Seo-Ha for the first time. The finale features Ji-Eum realizing that her loved ones are in danger because she told them about her past life’s secret. Min-Gi asked her to choose whether she wanted to continue the way she lived and lose her loved ones or forget her past lives.
If she chooses the latter, she will forget Seo-Ha, her sister Cho-Won (Ha Yoon-Kyung), and everyone from her previous lives. Ji-Eum was reluctant at the beginning as she couldn’t imagine her life without Seo-Ha. Towards the end, viewers see that Ji-Eum has forgotten Ahn Bo-Hyun’s character. However, Seo-Ha and Cho-Won remember her and enter her life as strangers.
In the final scene, Seo-Ha approaches Ji-Eum and introduces himself. He tells her that he wants to meet her naturally, hinting that he didn’t force him into her new life. He then asks her to date him — for context, this is how Ji-Eum introduced herself to Seo-Ha in the beginning. He then points at the matching rings that they exchanged before Ji-Eum lost her memory. See You in My 19th Life K-drama ends with the two looking into each other’s eyes near a poolside.
