Little Women Ending Explained
After injecting drugs into Jang Sa-Pyeong, which leads to his unfortunate death, Won Sang-Ah lures in In-Kyung, using the former as bait and kidnaps her. On the other hand, Won Sang-Ah plans to destroy both In-Joo and Hwayoung.
She informs In-Joo that she has abducted Hwayoung. Although well aware that she will never get her hands on the 70 billion won again, In-Joo leaves the plane where she was supposed to leave with Choi Do-Il. She rushes to Won Sang-Ah's home and tries to reason out with her.
In-Joo holds out a grenade given by Choi Do-Il's father, bravely confronting Won Sang-Ah, who has just informed them that she had put hydrochloric acid on the sprinklers.
At that time, In-Joo mentions Won Sang-Ah's accidental murder of her mother, which probably made her who she is today. It turns out that Won Sang-Ah had a scuffle with her mother, and she accidentally pushed her to death. She goes outside the closed room to reassure her father that everything is fine, then returns to where her mother is only to see her hanging inside the closet. Shocked by the incident, Won Sang-Ah continued to commit murder to bring herself back to the situation, as she was filled with guilt.
Thankfully, In-Joo quickly thought of a solution when Won Sang-Ah opened the sprinklers. In-Joo detonates the grenade and saves Hwayoung from being burned by the hydrochloric acid pouring from above.
With In-Joo's strong hope for survival, she accidentally pushes Won Sang-Ah to drown in the hydrochloric acid and the burned blue orchid tree. General Won regained consciousness but also died immediately alone at the hospital.
