Okay everyone, change into your Big Girl/Boy Pants, because this one needs a lot of fortitude to read. Purported spoilers for episode 19 and 20 of Nice Guy have come out on DC and I’ve translated them. I emphasize again that these are unconfirmed spoilers and not attached to either a long or short preview released by KBS. It sounds legit though, picking up where episode 18 left off, and wrapping up the story with most of the loose ends tied up. How it wraps up might cause everyone’s high blood pressure to rise, and I’m actually torn as to whether I want these spoilers to be true or not. If these are indeed true, then I have to trust that Lee Kyung Hee has all the delicate details that will pepper these last two episodes to make it more than just what the narrative proposes will happen. From the very beginning, NG has been a drama better than what it set out to do, taking the simplest of narrative anchors (revenge, obsession, memories, mistrust, regret) and making it the more than the sum of its parts. It’s going to be roller coaster ride next week, regardless of whether these spoilers below are true or the finale is something completely different, because we’ve been slowly building up the tension and momentum for the last 18 episodes just waiting for a fitting conclusion to put a stamp on this melodrama that will surely go down as a new classic.
