Does business proposal have a happy ending.
Business Proposal ends on a happy note with not one but two proposals! Both Tae Moo and Hari and Sung Hoon and Young Seo end the drama happily engaged. Tae Moo’s grandfather recovers from his heart issues and finally gives Tae Moo and Ha Ri his approval. A happy ending for everyone in Business Proposal.
What Happened to Tae Moo?
CEO Kang Tae Moo ( Ahn Hyo Seop ), finds himself torn between his love for Ha-ri and his ailing grandfather.
He decides to leave for the US for his grandfather’s treatment, asking Ha Ri to join them but she declines. However, Ha Ri suggests that his grandfather’s needs should be put first.
Tae Moo asks her to wait for him as he gets his grandfather treated.
After a year, he returns, his grandfather having recovered, and he proposes to Ha Ri, marking the beginning of their happily-ever-after.
What Happened to Ha Ri?
Shin Ha Ri ( Kim Se Jeong ) stands up for herself and her relationship with Tae Moo despite the public scrutiny and Grandpa’s disapproval.
When Tae-moo leaves for the US for his grandfather’s treatment, Ha Ri declines to go with him but promises to wait for him.
One year later, Ha Ri is still working as a food researcher with her team at Go Foods.
Her long-distance relationship with Tae Moo is going strong with the two keeping in touch via video call. But Ha Ri has doubts when a scandal breaks out about Tae Moo and a cellist and he won’t answer her calls.
She decides to confront Tae Moo in person, heading to the airport to catch a flight to the US. She meets Tae Moo there who clears up the cellist misunderstanding (the cellist’s family planted the story about her and Tae Moo).
Do Tae Moo and Ha Ri End Up Together?
Despite public backlash and Grandpa’s disapproval, Tae Moo and Ha Ri continue their relationship.
The two are only separated when Grandpa is diagnosed with a heart problem and Tae Moo accompanies him to the US for his treatment.
Tae Moo and Ha Ri are in a long-distance relationship for a year keeping in touch through video calls.
Tae Moo returns to Korea one year later and proposes to Ha Ri under the cherry blossoms.
What Happened to Sung Hoon?
Young Seo’s father, Chairman Jin, calls Sung Hoon to ask him to break up with Young Seo and to keep it secret from Young Seo.
Sung Hoon ( Kim Min Gue ) supports Young Seo in her decision to start her own business, even offering to fund her project.
He has a lot of money saved up: 1.7 billion won!
One year later, Sung Hoon is shown building a model home.
Why? I have no idea and the drama doesn’t bother explaining. Sung Hoon didn’t follow Tae Moo to the US for Grandpa’s treatment so he couldn’t work as his secretary.
Maybe he just took the year off work? It’s not like he needs the money anyway!
What Happened to Young Seo?
After overhearing her father ask Sung Hoon to break up with her, Jin Young Seo ( Seol In Ah ) quits her job at her father’s company and cuts ties with him. Young Seo decides to start her own business, with Sung Hoon’s support (business plan pending).
One year later, they continue to be in a loving relationship.

Sung Hoon proposes to Young Seo and she happily accepts.
The two remain together despite Young Seo’s father disapproving of their relationship.
Business Proposal ends with Sung Hoon and Young Seo engaged, supporting each other in their personal and professional endeavors.
What Happened to Min Woo?
Min Woo ( Song Won Seok ), Ha Ri’s long-time crush, decides to travel the world.
He admits to Ha Ri that he and Yoo Ra were no good together and that the relationship is truly over.
He asks Ha Ri if they can be close friends again when he returns to Korea but Ha Ri is non-commital, telling him it might take some time.
They part ways with a handshake.
Do Min Woo and Yoo Ra End Up Together?
Min Woo and Yoo Ra remain broken up (thank God).
Do Ms Yeo and Mr Gye End Up Together?
One year later, Ha Ri’s bickering co-workers, Ms Yeo and Mr Gye, are married.
What Happened to Tae Moo’s Grandfather (Chairman Kang)?
After Tae Moo and Ha Ri’s relationship becomes public knowledge, Chairman Kang ( Lee Deok Hwa ), Tae Moo’s grandfather, tries his best to separate the two but fails.
He fakes an illness initially to try and manipulate Tae Moo, but is later diagnosed with a serious heart issue that can’t be treated in Korea. Tae Moo takes him to the US for treatment.
After a year, he recovers and gives his approval to Tae Moo and Ha Ri’s relationship (off-screen).
Do Ha Ri’s parents approve of Tae Moo?
Episode 12 begins with Ha Ri’s parents finding out about her relationship with Tae Moo.
Her parents are concerned about the power imbalance in their relationship with the huge differences in their social and economic statuses.
Tae Moo has a heartfelt conversation with Ha Ri’s father and earnestly promises to protect Ha Ri.
After their initial bout of suspicion and worry, Ha Ri’s parents give the couple their blessing.
Business Proposal Ending Review
I’m not a big fan of how Grandpa finally gave Ha Ri his seal of approval off-screen. I enjoyed their relationship when Ha Ri was pretending Geum Hi and I was hoping Business Proposal would mend their relationship sooner so we could get the comedic duo back.
Grandpa’s disapproval and surly attitude while understandable was not entertaining and a bit of a downer in the final episodes.
I do appreciate that despite his anger at Ha Ri’s deception, Grandpa was genuinely looking out for her. He knows the malicious gossip and negative scrutiny Ha Ri will face being in a relationship with Tae Moo and was trying to protect them from that.

'A Business Proposal' Ending Explained: Does Tae-moo marry Ha-ri? Will there be a Season 2?
What a rollercoaster ride it was as Go Food’s CEO Kang Tae-moo fell in love with his employee, Shin Ha-ri while his secretary, Cha Sung-hoon fell in love with his next-door neighbor who was “allegedly” far richer than he was, Jin Young-seo. Fans of SBS’ ‘A Business Proposal’ bid the K-drama a farewell after its final episode aired on April 5. While the dating scandal involving Kang Tae-moo in the show was confirmed to be fake in his own words, fans will miss watching new episodes of the Ahn Hyo Seop and Kim Se Jeong show.
‘ A Business Proposal ’ was a mega success as its popularity brought extreme success for all of the cast members including Ahn Hyo-seop who played Kang Taemoo, Kim Se-jeong who played Shin Hari as well as Kim Min-gue, and Seol In-ah who played the side couple, Sunghoon and Youngseo respectively. With the show ending in only 12 episodes unlike the usual K-drama ending of 16 episodes, fans are left wanting more as they ask certain questions about the finale.

A Business Proposal Ending Explained
The show started with Shin Hari (played by Kim Sejeong ) disguising herself as Jin Youngseo, her rich best friend in order to save her from attending a blind date with Go Food’s young CEO, Kang Taemoo (played by Ahn Hyoseop). While Shin Hari tries to make the date a failure, Kang Taemoo is determined to marry her and eventually her disguise falters. Kang Taemoo realizes Shin Hari is his employee and eventually falls in love with her as they both set off to date. Kang Taemoo’s grandfather, Chairman Kang however is not happy about the initial lie and disapproves of Shin Hari as the future wife of Kang Taemoo.
In the final episode, we see that Chairman Kang is seriously ill and would need to undergo treatment in the US in order to recover. Kang Taemoo departs to the US as he and Shin Hari agree to continue their long-distance relationship. As a year passes by, she starts getting frustrated given the fact that he is always busy during their calls. One fine day, Hari decides to go to the states herself but turns out that the cab she was hailing for herself has Kang Taemoo who flew back to South Korea in order to propose to Hari with a ring. She ends up accepting his proposal and the show comes to an end.
What happened to Sung-hoon and Young-seo
The side couple of the show obviously stole the hearts of all fans. Their story started at a convenience store where both Cha Sunghoon (played by Kim Mingue) and Jin Youngseo (played by Seol Inah) fell in love at first sight. After she introduces herself to him, Sunghoon finally learns that Youngseo was the one who sent Hari for the blind date with his boss, Kang Taemoo. Sunghoon immediately draws the line and asks her to stop interacting with him despite the two being neighbors, they finally overcome their issues and start their romantic relationship.
Sunghoon eventually proposes to Youngseo after she finds a ring in the glove box of his car. Because Youngseo comes from a rich family and Sunghoon is a mere secretary, her father orders him to break up with Youngseo and part ways with her. Youngseo, who was with Sunghoon at that time ends up resigning from her father’s company and ending all relations with her father. Now with no monetary support from her father, Youngseo decides to start a new business by taking a loan from the bank.
Sunghoon shocks her as he hands Youngseo his bank passbook that reads he has saved up 1 billion won. Sunghoon asks to be her first investor instead of just giving the money to Youngseo. He then finally takes a year-long break from work with his boss, Kang Taemoo being in the US and spends the time planning his wedding with Youngseo.
Will there be a Season 2?
Fans are shocked that the show ended far too soon and Kang Taemoo only returned from the US in the final two minutes of the final episode of ‘A Business Proposal’. The show has been called a “comfort” drama after it ended with a nationwide rating of 11.4% for its final episode. While there is no official news about a second season just yet, fans are hopeful that ‘A Business Proposal’ gets a new season given that it was only 12 episodes long unlike regular 16-episode K-dramas.

3 details that make the end of A Business Proposal cause controversy
A business proposal has a happy but incomplete ending..
A Business Proposal has officially ended after 12 episodes, with a happy ending for both main couples. Accordingly, Tae Moo ( Ahn Hyo Seop ) successfully proposed to Ha Ri (Kim Se Jeong) ; and Sung Hoon ( Kim Min Gyu ) and Young Seo ( Seol In Ah ) moved in together to live as husband and wife.
However, this ending to many audiences is a disappointment. The last episode builds up the plot too quickly, the knots that have not been tied yet have been removed and above all, there are countless entanglements about the relationship between the characters.
1. Jin Young Seo (Seol In Ah) wanted to cut ties with her father because of love
After hearing that her father asked Sung Hoon to end their relationship, Young Seo announced the severance of the father-daughter relationship. “It’s because of you since all you care about is money.” “You kicked mom out because she wasn’t up to your standards and you want to separate me from the man I love” are the reasons she gave.
Isn’t it too unreasonable that with just that number of reasons, Young Seo decided to cut ties with her father. Just because he didn’t respect her wishes, forbade her to marry someone she didn’t like and only think about money and status all day long. So who is wrong in this case? Or is the series trying to spread the idea that if your father does not agree with you , you should cut ties with him? Is it too wrong to build conflicts between father and daughter from the beginning of the series and cut off the relationship at the end of it?
2. Still be friends with the one who you have crushed for 7 years?
A Business Proposal successfully built an obnoxious supporting male role who left the female lead alone for 7 years but then he was angry at her when he heard that she had a lover… But it seems that everything that Lee Min Woo (Song Won Seok) is doing is too superficial and half-heartedly. His influence did not make Tae Moo – Ha Ri ‘s love increase or decrease, the 7-year relationship between him and Ha Ri affected neither her love story nor her daily life.
The ending of this character is also sloppy. He decided to go to Europe to travel and hope that when he returns, the two will still be friends. The two do not come to an answer to the ambiguous love story for the past 7 years. Moreover, the trouble that Min Woo ’s girlfriend caused to Ha Ri is solved by just an indirect apology. So, what’s the point of building a relationship between Ha Ri and Min Woo for 7 years?
3. Constructing the ” Yes there are but for what” episodes
The ending of “ A Business Proposal ” is predictable as a happy ending. Therefore, it causes a feeling of dissatisfaction, even boredom. There are no plot twists, everything is too predictable. There are even unnecessary details that do absolutely nothing to the drama.
“ A Business Proposal ” crammed all the details ranging from contradictions, solutions to misunderstandings in just 60 minutes. As a result, the drama became sloppy, clumsy and everything was all over the place. Typically, Tae Moo ’s rumors of love went viral among the press but this problem was solved by just a simple explanation. This makes the audience feel like the episode is useless and has no contribution to the drama.
The most worth discussing thing is still the scene of the unexpected and rather superficial proposal scene when it only lasted 3 minutes of the main couple. The fact that there was no romantic wedding has triggered the audience. If this were a tragic drama, letting the couple be together would be enough. In contrast, this is a soft romantic drama so why didn’t they have a proper wedding?
A Business Proposal aired the last episode on SBS on the evening of April 5th.
