King the Land Ending Explained
King the Land episode 16 brought the end of this beautiful show that got our emotions going up and down right until the end. While the higher emotions were mostly felt in episode 15, episode 16 is also much loved because of the soothing feeling it brought to us after the hectic ride.
Episode 16 began with the cliffhanger we were left at in episode 15; thankfully letting us know that our precious Sa-rang and Gu Won couple are not splitting any time soon. Instead, they are now beginning their individual journeys to achieve something in their stories. Thus, putting Gu Won’s proposal on hold, we are all left wondering if we would ever get to see this couple walking down the aisle before the end of the show.

As the episode progresses, we see Sa-rang working hard to find the perfect property to make her dream of being the owner of her own hotel come true. She finally finds the perfect location and begins to build her dream from scratch, until she finally completes setting up her Hotel Amor.
On the other hand, Gu Won too prepares for King Hotel’s new future that holds a place where no one holds a fake smile. However, while he gets busy with his new responsibilities, it doesn’t stop him from taking care of his beloved and making sure that she never feels alone.
Finally, Sa-rang notices what he has been doing and worries about his declining health which is a result of his exhausting schedule and travelling back and forth this whole time. She then tells him of her plan to hire a part-timer, letting him know that she will have enough help and wouldn’t need him to travel the distance so frequently.
Gu Won has no choice but to accept her plan, however, he is not one to give up and this is clear when he shows up as one of the interviewees. Having found no good part-timer and amused by her boyfriend’s tactic, Sa-rang finally gives in and accepts him as the new helper at Hotel Amor.
However, she is soon surprised upon finding that this isn’t the only surprise that Gu Won has prepared for her. When she sees him bend on his knee with a ring out for her, she is overjoyed and doesn’t take too long to accept his marriage proposal. The couple share a hug and their happiness as they look forward to the bright future ahead.
