Moving is a Korean drama like no other, with an equivalent amount of thrill, mystery, supernatural elements, and action. Even though it has twenty episodes, it feels like they pass by quickly, thanks to its indulging experience.
The first season of Moving concluded on September 20, with the last episode giving a glimpse of what happened at the ending as well as a little hint for a second season.
In short, the ending of Moving is a happy one, with almost everyone getting their desired life. Even though Jae-seok and Deok-yoon had died while helping Bong-seok, Hui-soo, and others, Jun-hwa kills the North Korean general, frees Doo-sik, and asks him to protect his son.
While these highlights can surely summarize the whole ending, let’s explore everything in detail below.
Moving Ending Explained: What Happened During the Climax?
Although the drama started with a bit of a light-hearted side, with family moments stealing the spotlight, it soon turned dark when an assassin from North Korea was introduced. His mission was to kill the South Korean agents and get the files of superhuman children.
While much has happened and a lot of blood has been shed, the parents eventually fought alongside their children to protect each other. While Mihyun, the mother of Bong-seok, kills Northern spies in episode 19, Jang Ju-won avoids death by a slight margin.
Bong-seok also learns how to control his power and rushes to the school, which is now half-demolished due to Jae-seok’s supersonic power. As the battle continues for a while, Jae-seok eventually dies in the blast.
Meanwhile, Deok-yoon, who was always against the mission his North Korean superiors assigned him, lets Jang Ju-won and Mi-hyun escape the area and kills himself by falling off the roof.
However, before dying, he instructs Jun-hwa to flee and protect his family before the North Korean soldiers kill them for failing the mission. Eventually, Jun-hwa arrives in North Korea and kills the general to save Doo-sik.
Once Doo-sik is freed from the enemy’s clutches, he arrives in South Korea only to find that the NIS director, Min Young-Jun, has become a traitor and has been feeding the enemies information about the superhuman children.
To avoid further issues, Doo-sik kills Min Young-jun and returns to reunite with his family and live peacefully. However, Ganghoon joins the agency to erase the records of his father, Doo-sik.
On the other end, Jang Ju-won and Hui-soo continue with their lives by running their shop while the whereabouts of Bong-seok are unknown, but one thing’s for sure—he’s using his powers to help the weak and becoming the true superhero he always meant to be.
Furthermore, he also inherited the power of his mother, Mi-hyun, which is super hearing, and combined with his flying ability, he assured his family he would be safe no matter what.
Moving Post-Credit Scene: What Does It Imply?
The NIS director, Young-jun, who was initially suspected of being a spy, has been killed by Doo-sik, but now there is someone else to take his place. As seen in the post-credit scene, another ambitious person has taken over his position.
While the drama didn’t hint that he will be a spy like his predecessor, it definitely maintained the tension, giving the fans the hope of getting another season.
If a second season were to be produced, the story would most likely be on a large scale, most likely from the side of North Korea, whose military decided to create a breeding program to turn ordinary people into enhanced soldiers.
Even though Jun-hwa has killed the head of the operations, the writers can always introduce another big bad and set things in motion for a second season. However, given that the first season only ended a couple of days ago, it would take a while to get an official confirmation.
