Why must Dong Chan die on God's Gift?

Have you watched the latest episode of God's Gift? Dong Chan is dead? Are you sure? For real? Yeah, I know.. I can't believe it either.

This drama surely is full of surprises. I don't know what Dong Chan's thinking after he realized that one of two people must die, is either him or Saet Byul not Dong Ho or Saet Byul.

Well, the ending never showed the death of Dong Chan. What we saw is Saet Byul and Soo Hyun was walking side by side and at the end of the drama, there is flashback that Saet Byul asked Dong Chan about the end of the story of Mom, the child and the knight who saved the child : "What happened to the knight? Is he alive?"

We never heard what was his answer, thus it's an open ended drama. You interpret what you want to. Well, these are some alternate endings :

First. Dong Chan is dead. He fully understand that the prophecy stated that one of them must die. The fate say so. He was given the chance to go back 14 days before, to realize this fate. The fate said it, so be it. He must die.

Second. Dong Chan is a noble idiot, so he sacrificed himself, drown in water. But the fate won't say so. Remember All About Eve? When Sun Mi felt very guilty, she drown himself in a lake. But she is not dead. Older Sun Min is dead because she has amnesia, but the little girl in Sun Mi  replacing the older one.

So Dong Chan is just like Sun Mi. He is 'dead', just like the prophecy, but it's only his mind, not his body. Does it make sense? I don't know.. Does this drama make sense?

But the real question is not like the above. The real question is :  Was Dong Chan reaaally.. reaaally a noble idiot? I don't think so.

So comes the third alternate ending. I think he wants to cheat the fate. He tries to cheat the prophecy. What does the 14 days teach him? Not to make same mistake. So he sent Saet Byul back to Soo Hyun, and he disappeared. Knowing that all of his loved ones is alive and safe, is enough for him. As long as their fate didn't cross, it's alright for him. The world is big enough for all of them to live.

Or.. probably the fourth option. There will be a sequel of God's Gift - 14 Days.
