The Kdrama brings the life of two islanders, one who returns home after experiencing tragic loss, and the other who continues to wait for love. As the two work towards their goals, these prior best friends find a moment to rekindle their friendship and maybe something more.

The show is heading towards its final week, and we have already seen the route Sam-dal and Yong-pil took to ensure their love succeeded. With patience, courage and lots of love, the two have finally made it through all hurdles but one, Bang Eun-ju, who is adamant about ruining Sam-dal’s life.

However, Eun-ju doesn’t know that her fears are for nothing as Sam-dal has found happiness in the small town she always tried to leave. Having already passed the hurdle of Yong-pil’s father’s resentment, Sam-dal is finally living a fulfilling life, but if Eun-ju crosses the limit, she won’t hide away again because this time she has her family and friends beside her.

Now, the finale is soon to arrive this weekend and we have got a few predictions on how this show will end. So let’s take a look into what the Welcome to Samdal-ri finale is going to look like!

Welcome to Samdal-ri Finale Predictions

Episode 14 of the show ended with Sang-tae finally giving his blessing to the couple who finally showed him how much they love each other. Meanwhile, Eun-ju is running out of patience and seeing Sam-dal’s exhibition news being displayed on local channels has become the final push for her to repeat her actions.

This time, Eun-ju is ready to bring in a reporter to Jeju and once again ride on the waves of Sam-dal’s misery. Unfortunately, it looks to me like she is underestimating Sam-dal in Jeju, and is treating her like Cho Eun-hye in Seoul. This time Sam-dal has her family, her friends, her hometown, and Cho Yong-pil with her, so there is no way she is going to stay silent again.

With all this excitement waiting for us this week, here’s a look into how the show is going to end!

The Cho Sisters

The Cho sisters are surely going to find their happiness in this finale, while we will talk about Sam-dal later (as she is the protagonist), let’s focus on her sisters. Jin-dal is sure to get back with her husband as Dae-young is ready to make it clear just how important she is to him. However, this time it is going to be different because Jin-dal is someone he can never let go of again.

Meanwhile, Ha-yul’s efforts are soon going to see their fruits as Hae-dal is sure to catch on to what her daughter is trying to do. If not, then at least Ji-chan will see what is happening and will most probably choose to walk down the path that will keep him next to this mother-daughter duo.

Bang Eun-hye

The only hurdle left on Sam-dal’s journey to get a peaceful life; Bang Eun-ju has made sure to be the beginning and end of Sam-dal’s journey to finding happiness. However, karma is sure to be served soon as after having pulled Sam-dal’s name into the news twice already, she is sure not going to be lucky for the third time as well.

Eun-ju will most likely not be able to make it through pulling Sam-dal’s name in the mud this time as even the internet will not go crazy over the same topic three times in a row. Additionally, there are still those who once worked under her and Sam-dal’s ex-boyfriend who have seen the person that she is, so we can say that her luck is surely going to run out this time.

Cho Sam-dal

Now, coming to Sam-dal, well we can say that Eun-ju’s stunt won’t be easy to deal with and she will experience another setback because of her. However, this time Sam-dal has her team alongside her and there is no way that she won’t fight back. Meanwhile, Sam-dal is already over the moon after having gotten Sang-tae’s blessings so she will surely not care about Eun-ju’s games.

However, she may not do anything doesn’t mean that those around her wouldn’t fight for her. This time Eun-ju is not just facing Sam-dal but all of Samdal-ri. We are sure to expect some intense scenes between these two women but we also hope Eun-ju gets a closure that can stop her from being so obsessed with Sam-dal.

Cho Yong-pil

Yong-pil is also over the moon after getting his father’s blessings for their relationship. Their long wait is finally coming to an end and now that he can officially be with Sam-dal, there is no way that he won’t be protecting her from the world. Yong-pil is Sam-dal’s biggest supporter and her rock and now he will show what he is capable of when it comes to the love of his life.

However, there is more to Yong-pil’s story as seen briefly in the previous episode. We saw him take a brief look at the application for World Meteorological Organization which could potentially mean that it is his time to fly out of their home. Sam-dal has already achieved all that she wanted to and has made a name for herself, and this means that it is finally time for Yong-pil to do the same.

Sam-dal and Yong-pil

Finally, we have the couple who have kept us entertained all these weeks with their love, warmth, comedy, and much more. For the finale, we surely have hopes to see them tie the knot or finally spend some very warm moments with each other; though it is obvious we want the former and see the two in their happiest moment.

Meanwhile, we can also expect another brief separation as Sam-dal pushes Yong-pil to fly like a dragon and achieve his dreams while promising to become his river. She is the one who is going to wait this time and she is ready to see him fly high while waiting for him to return to his safe zone, their home.

Bonus: Ko Mi-ja and Cho Sang-tae

After all the resentment and pain that had been suppressed all this time, the two are finally going to sit together and remember the person they loved and lost. This reconciliation is also important as it gives Sang-tae a chance to live a better life and Mi-ja a chance to finally see her friend’s memorial which she had been kept away from.

Meanwhile, there is a chance that Sang-tae is on the verge of forgetting his wife and it is now going to be Mi-ja’s duty to make sure that he remembers her friend whom they both loved.
