I thought it would be neat to come up with a list of the worst ideas for endings in a drama. Here is my list.
1. Ending in a coma
2. Amnesia (How many times will it be used)
3. Just staring at each other or yelling out each others name! (calling love, love or bread, corner with love, etc.)
4. Cliff hangers/ suppose to have sequels (Romantic Princess, need I say more)
5. A part of the love couple dies of cancer, turminal illness, accident, etc. (like in every other korean drama)
6. They hug at the end and no kiss
7. The ending is rushed
8. WTF was that!

1. replay of the main character's 1st encounter (ex. prince princess 2, take care of the young lady)
2. dying (totally turn off. tree of heaven, staricase to heaven)
3. cliff hanger (romantic princess, hana kimi)
4. sloppy kiss (i hate it how some ppl think tat just by adding a random kiss scene taz not done very well can satisfy the audience)
5. first kiss (rolling love, i hate it how some dramas have the 2 main character's 1st kiss b the last scene in the drama. i mean seriously they should have kissed a long time ago! a kiss is the rising action of their relationship NOT the ending)
6. chessy comedy

I agree with 7. I hate it when they rush the drama to end, especially if it was slow to begin with.

i hate it when a movie ends by the time being forwarded, for example like "10 years later" or whatevs, skipping lots of moments and then suddenly it ends with a happy ending

I think no.7 is the worse!

I swear nearly all korean dramas involve some kind of accident or illness, how come there aren't any full happy endings

I hated the ending of Stars Falling From the Sky. Even if it had the whole "1 year later" scenario, I felt like the main couple (Pal Kang and Kang Ha) hadn't changed at all. There was no chemistry between them, they weren't acting like they had been together for a year... I don't know how to explain it.

i agree with everything you've listed!

i also hate when the ending feels like there is no ending which makes me wonder what was the point of watching what i just watched <_<

eg. at the end of kurosagi yamapi was captured, i thought that was the end. this would have been a sad ending but at least its some type of ending to his swindles etc. BUT the next scene cuts to yamapi/maki having a short random scene where they were just talking so i'm assuming he got let out very quickly after he was captured.. furthermore they didn't end up together.. the end was yamapi walking away while maki smiled and she did that gun bang thing with her hands. i was just like wth.. it didn't seem like a cliffhanger.. it just abruptly ended with basically no ending @_@

i actually like cliff hangers XD gives u room of imagination, i think somehow this is a quite neat and beautiful way to end a drama

to add to the list:

Don't always show a family happy ending where everyone gather in a reunion, some show up pregnant with several kids, some just return from traveling around the world, some become famous or something, then group photo

A really bad "10 years later" thing where the couple are a lovely family with kids and mucking around with all these lovely family photos lying around where the camera so very conveniently catches it = =

It really annoys me!

But dying isn't too bad is it? Not if thats the point of the drama... Like if it was something like 1 Litre of Tears or Starlit then it's fine with me....
