The Internet Reacts to “Who Are You: School 2015” Finale

School 2015 shippers

Yesterday was D-day of the highly anticipated finale of the KBS youth drama “Who Are You: School 2015,” which would provide the answer to the question that has had the K-drama world divided- who does Eun Bi (Kim So Hyun) end up with? Will she choose the male lead character Han Yi Ahn (Nam Joo Hyuk) or the second lead, Gong Tae Kwang (Yook Sungjae), who has made everyone question if he is really only a second lead? What about Eun Bi’s twin, Eun Byul, and the bully So Young (Jo Soo Hyang)?

The finale came and went, and depending on how you interpreted the ending, the episode answered all or none of those questions. It left the internet in an uproar and everyone had something to say, whether it was expression of elation or absolute frustration. Here’s what it looked like. *Warning. There are spoilers all over.

Before the finale aired, people had to mentally and emotionally prepare for what was to come.

After watching the episode, people reacted in various ways: Some couldn’t handle all the feels.

Some couldn’t believe what they saw.

Some wanted to pretend it didn’t happen.

Some were just like:

Some felt the symptoms of the Second Lead Syndrome.

There were various interpretations of the ending:

Some saw it as an open ending.

But most saw it as an YiBi (Yi Ahn and Eun Bi) ending.

So there was a lot of anger in the TaeBi (Tae Kwang and Eun Bi) camp.

The writers got a lot of hate.

Someone came up with this perfect summary of what the writers did.

The ending left people so peeved, they opted to just ship Tae Kwang with someone else.

For some, this was just another K-drama lesson learned.

For others, it was just pure and simple entertainment.

Whatever ship you were on, “Who Are You: School 2015” left an impression, and it will be missed.
