Go-eun makes it clear that she will not stop Soo-hyun if she proceeds with a divorce and tells her that she would do the same if Soo-hyun were her daughter. Su-ho’s mother tells her that she would indeed tell Soo-hyun to get a divorce and while she has always loved Soo-hyun, she is Su-ho’s mother in the end.

She then leaves there but meets Soo-hyun outside and tells her to reconsider her relationship with Su-ho. Soo-hyun tells her that she will contact her when she has been able to put her feelings together. Soo-hyun then enters the restaurant and meets her mother. Elsewhere, Seon-yul finishes his mother’s burial and leaves the cemetery.

Kim Joon assures him and asks if his mother told him anything before she died. Seon-yul tells him that he wasn’t there during her final moments and Kim Joon brushes the topic aside. Seon-yul tells him that he wants to investigate his mother’s accident once again but doesn’t say much.

Kim Joon gets in his car to leave and comments on how Seon-yul is too stuck on his mother’s death. Meanwhile, Seon-yul is aware of something but quietly returns home upon which his friends show their concern for him. Seon-yul doesn’t say much and enters his home alone where he once again opens the recording he found in his mother’s phone.

As he breaks down because of the truth in front of him, days and nights pass by while his friends try to find out about his condition. Finally, one day Soo-hyun knocks on her door and Soo-hyun opens his doors to see her. Soo-hyun tells him that she is aware of how he feels and that he should get himself together before she can pass on the information that she has on hand for him.

Seon-yul finally eats the food in front of him and tries to pick himself up once again. The next day, Soo-hyun takes her mother out for a day out together and finally at the end of the wonderful day, she confesses about Seon-yul’s identity. Go-eun cries for her daughter who had to bear the pain all alone again while Soo-hyun too breaks down in front of her mother.

Later, she tells Soo-hyun to not hate him too much as he too is in pain. With this, Go-eun falls asleep while Soo-hyun thinks of her mother’s words. Right then, she gets a call from Seon-yul and upon picking up the call she hears a familiar conversation. Seon-yul plays the recording he found in his mother’s phone and Soo-hyun is reminded of the moment she changed everything.

Seon-yul then tells her that he still cannot forgive her but is also aware that she must hate him and finds it hard to face him. Soo-hyun does not deny this and tells him that she had lost her child and spent 7 years in prison but when she realised that the man she killed also had a family was like a wake-up call to her.

Seon-yul tells her that he was aware of her situation, he too was in hell during that time, but he chose to ignore it and thought that getting his revenge on her would keep him alive. With this, he disconnects the call and once again bursts out in tears. The next day, Soo-hyun contacts the reporter who covered Eun-min’s accident and gets photos of the scene.

Wonderful World Episode 11 Review

The finale week has begun and it has started with a blast as Seon-yul sees a change in himself after finding out Soo-hyun’s side of the story. While it was bound for the two to work together at some point, we, unfortunately, will not be getting enough of this team but just enough to bring this show to an exciting end.

However, the highlight of this episode has been Seon-yul without a doubt as the character shows a kind of maturity and empathy which is not usually seen in similar characters. Additionally, Cha Eun-woo’s portrayal of the pain Seon-yul is going through in this episode is without a doubt flawless.

Meanwhile, Soo-hyun’s character may not be given much of the spotlight today because she is the main character for the finale tomorrow and we know that Kim Nam-joo is sure to steal the show tomorrow. And we are ready to see the teamwork she is going to display with Seon-yul which has us excited already.

However, Kim Joon isn’t an easy antagonist to face which will only make the finale even better. Therefore, with hopes for another amazing finale of 2024, we are eagerly looking forward to the final episode.
