    Ok this might be an unpopular point of view but all the couple's kissing scenes pale in comparison with this episode's ending! Someone mentioned that by not attending her ex FIL's death anniversary, Cha Soo Hyun risks losing Donghwa Hotel which, as CHS has said to KJH, is everything to her. Here, Cha Soo Hyun is telling KHJ and all of us viewers that he, Kim Jin Hyuk, not Donghwa Hotel, is everything to her.

    The only thing I dislike about the drama, they keep eating! Along with laughing,crying,smiling and squealing - I am constantly hungry when I watch this drama, it’s like my personal PMSing hell with crazy hormones.

    Exactly. That’s the dilemma, add to that a dash of emotional blackmail by her mom. @dukesa1122 he is crying because he is touched, he lied to her that the dinner was canceled but the night before he was actually worried about the choices before SH and how life would constantly throw Taekyung group in her path. So when he opens the door expecting the old widow and sees SH, he knows the depth of SH’s action. Her showing up means she is choosing her love and life with JH over everything else.

    He means it in a good way, it would mean that he doesn’t see his life continuing without SH. The fact that he loves her so much is what terrifies him.

    My babies are so pure! KJH is choked up and touched beyond words. the big bad wolf dematerialises. It looks like the wolf symbolizes SH’s past life baggage, her choice today meant she seized the power to Make decisions best suited for her own life.

    @autumnight Yes, these shots are indeed interesting. Nothing is random in this drama, like I pointed out with my analysis about the feet and hands. Now, I need to see these shots in their context, however I can deduce that in the second shot, the director underlines JWS's passivity one more time. JH is the one walking away from him, if I am not mistaken. JH's steps have a signifance, JWS remains static which also outshines JH's energy and courage. He might have been hurt by JWS's words but he doesn't remain passive and obedient. He talks back and walks away, something JWS is not used to. @yonaomi123 JH's mother might hesitate and feel uncomfortable due to the huge social gap but she is a warmhearted person. Moreover, his husband has a huge influence on her. His mother thought that CSH might not be comfortable with their standards. KJH's mother has a low self-esteem. In the episode 11, she didn't use the other facilities too scared that she might be a sore eye for others.

    Sorry for quoting myself but I had interpreted the drawing right from the start. - the choice CSH had to face. - the door as a symbol for a family and home! Actually, I never doubted her one second. I knew, she would choose JH over wealth. Actually, she never wanted to live in that kind of world.

    Interesting contrast between WS and JH: WS always sends SH flowers. Cut flowers are pretty but, realistically, they are already dead and will fade soon. JH gives her something that is alive; something that can grow and flourish.

    And JWS thought, with the divorce contract CSH would never dare to miss attending the death anniversary. He came to this conclusion because she had been obedient all these years. And his action and words prove to me that he used the divorce contract to bind her to him. He knew everything and saw it as an opportunity not to release her entirely. So the divorce was just a facade, in his mind he was not really divorced. He is really twisted! Sorry but I can not stand him any longer.

Later in the car, SH says it looks like jh’s Mom is a really good cook. JH says she is an amazing cook, SH says she envies him bevauss her mom can’t cook. JH invites her to his place for a meal, she says she is angry because the old widow didn’t offer SH any of the side dishes and usually it’s the polite thing to offer food to others. JH teases her and says she is like a young school student. lagggggg

    Sh tells him that he eats like a pig and it’s unappetizing, hahaha. He tells her he is touched that she cane out to see him, he really wanted to see her and she says she felt the same way. Lag. he asked her the reason for her liking him, - laaagg — something about KJH being the only person in the world. He insists on dropping her home. When they’re home, she tells him to leave. He tells her to scoot over and jumps into bed with her. She says she is uncomfortable and can’t sleep, tells him to have some tea and then go to his place. He pushes her down and says “ I’ve got tea at my place, did I come all the way for this?”. She throws him off, he sulks saying “ I came out in this cold weather”. But gets a big smile and says the bed is so comfortable, it “ feels like my rightful place”, then SH says nobody has slept on that side of the bed not even Sec Jang. KJH says that the side of the bed recognizes its owner. Lol. she fidgets again and he pulls her into his arms and says he wishes this is how they went to sleep every night, in each other’s arms. sH is quiet, he asks why and she says she is happy.

    (the significance of hands and feet in Encounter, part 4) Love via cellphone While I was watching this drama for my analysis about feet and hands, I came to realize that the hands are often shown with the cellphone. This connection between hands and cellphone starts with this significant scene: JH takes a picture of his hand where he has just written his cellphone number. Striking is until that moment, we had no taking about cellphones. Why? First, when CSH meets JH for the first time, she has just lost her cellphone. JH didn't use it at all, he had his camera with him. However, when they are about to part from each other, CSH keeps asking about his phone number but JH refuses as he doesn't want to be misunderstood... he would rather like to meet her in person again hence he proposes to meet at the cafe for breakfast at 9.00 am. Since CSH doesn't show up, he leaves a note where he asks her what he always wanted to know: does she have a boyfriend? As you can see, JH doesn't seem to be the type who uses a lot his cellphone, he is rather a direct person. In the picture above, the connection between hands and cellphone is even reinforced because we have CSH's hands holding the phone and we have JH's hands represented in the picture. So indirectly, their hands touch each other through the cellphone. And this is really important because I had already analysed before that JH will use his hands to get closer to CSH and bring down her walls she had created around her. Remember this scene (episode 3), where they play at the beach: He describes himself as the biggest excavator in his neighborhood. With his hands, he puts away the sand and he wins each time. Therefore we could interpret this game as a metaphor for the future events. With his hands, he will little by little come closer to CSH's heart. With his hands, he will be able to destroy her thick walls and make her surrender. But since they had returned to the reality after leaving Cuba, JH was well aware that he had to start from the scratch. Here, CSH was not a destitute woman but a CEO. So there is this huge gap and if he wants to get closer to her, this time he needs to give her his cellphone number. He can not approach her directly, unlike in the past. Interesting is that director gives us another taking. Here JH is happily looking at his hand because he has not just made a move, he has also succeeded with his attempt to get closer to her. CSH didn't reject his offer. Striking is that after giving his cellphone number, JH receives no phone call and no text. He knows that she needs to make the first move as she has the upper hand. She is after all his boss and if he tries to ask her for her cellphone number, this might not be well perceived. JH is very well aware of the image he wants to give to her. So nothing happens... however, we see JH now using his cellphone more often. He checks on her via his cellphone. That's his only way to know what is happening to her. However, parallel to this, he keeps to be in touch with her with his hands. Since he can not see her directly, he counts the floors in order to know where her office is. Notice that the director uses two takings for this scene underlining his need for physical touch and closeness. As soon as he meets her, JH starts to use his hands for real to get closer to her, like here for example We shouldn't forget that he did the same gesture in Cuba and offering his arm marked the start of the first move to get closer to her hand. So he is using the same method again. But now, let us go back to our main focus, which is the use of the cellphone. Only in the episode 5, CSH contacts JH with her cellphone. But she doesn't call him. She texts him after seeing being depressed. So they don't talk to each other but exchange their thoughts via cellphone. Here, the cellphone helps them to create a private sphere where they can be genuine and even intimate. No one can hear them or even see them talking to each other. They can escape from the attention of the media and the journalists. This justifies why for a while, JH and CSH text each other a lot for a while. The fear to be seen together is still there, on the other hand, CSH starts getting more and more comfortable with JH so that in the episode 6, she is not scared to be seen with JH, when she puts his necktie. Some viewers were complaining that CSH seemed to be rather passive in her relationship with JH. However, the cellphone proves the opposite. She is the one who decides to text JH, when she notices his sadness. She wants to help him. She is also the one who called JH first with her cellphone (episode 7) In the same episode, JH uses his cellphone in order to know how far CSH's place is from the Han river. Initially, he is struggling because of his immanent transfer but his wandering thoughts make him realize that he misses her. He wants to be closer to her hence he makes a research. As you can observe the cellphone is here used again as a way to get closer to her. Moreover, he also realizes that he has no picture of her in his cellphone. Actually, he has already one picture of her, but only in his camera. Therefore we can conclude that the cellphone has become more important in JH's life. The closer he gets to her, the more he uses it which is understandable because he used the cellphone as a way to get closer to her first. This was his first approach. That way, he will be able to see her any time. The mobile usage illustrates the evolution of their relationship and their love. Then in the episode 10, JH is the first one who initiates the first video phone call. CSH feels uncomfortable while JH acts as the expert. However, I doubt that he has ever done a video phone call before. JH likes to make himself appear as competent, confident, strong and manly. Don't forget that he is the best excavator from his neighborhood, the expert with the game machine (where he failed), the docent in his neighborhood. As their relationship progressed, you can sense that JH feels more and more comfortable with his cellphone. He has changed a lot. I have the impression that he used to be a little old-fashioned when it comes to the cellphone. However, in the episode 11, hJH calls her in order to have an office romance in a hidden room and he uses it in order to sing to CSH. He has become more and more confident and so obvious that he is not able to hide his huge love for her. They are caught by the cleaning lady ("these are the good times") and his brother hears him singing. JH is more and more taking risks to be caught. What caught my attention in this scene above is his need to touch physically CSH while singing to her. So he goes to the white howl embodying our heroine and touch the plush toy. Our main character is indeed a greedy person, as he can not get enough of CSH. And let take us a closer look at JWS. In the beginning, we never see him calling CSH. They just meet and we have to assume that she called him (episode 3) or he called her. First, in the episode 10, we witness a scene where JWS calls CSH but the latter rejects the offer to meet him at the Sky lounge. This scene is quite important because it reveals that JWS has always had her cellphone number and he could contact her anytime. Yet, JWS has only one picture of CSH in his cellphone... the one he had before he met her. This proves that he never used the cellphone to get closer to her. Moreover, we never see him texting her. Only in the episode 11, he sends a text which CSH doesn't see as she is dating JH. But his text is rather common... while CSH and JH put a lot of thoughts in their texts. We see them texting one thing, then erasing the text and tip another text. In the pictures above with the texts, the viewer see the final message, the one JH and CSH read. To summarize, JWS's failure is visible with the mobile usage. He only sees it as a way to meet CSH. Our main leads utilize the mobile in order to cheer up their partner, to share their thoughts, to convey their love, to take pictures, to sing, to locate the person aso. JWS is a pragmatical person who is not romantic at all. Furthermore this also underlines JWS's lack of expression skills. He doesn't use the cellphone that much because he barely talks. Finally, the cellphone plays an important in the second couple: LDC and JMJ. Although both have a false impression of each other, they are able to connect through the cellphone. JM played a part in it as he downloaded the dating application. What caught my attention is that DC and JMJ post the same picture. They hide half of their face in the picture. The face, half covered, symbolizes that they are revealing just a part of their identity. They are not entirely revealing who they are. However, their relationship progresses much quicker than JH and CSH's as they have less hurdles. JMJ and LDC only needed to get rid of their prejudice and first impression. The app revealed that they had some affinities, yet JMJ had more expectations about her future boyfriend. The closer she gets to DC, the more she changes her criteria about a boyfriend. In the last episode, she made a move in that direction: she visited DC's restaurant as she wanted to see him... yet, she was a little embarrassed. Nevertheless, DC is a step ahead of her in my opinion. He openly admits that he likes her and he even mentioned marriage in front of his friends. @dukesa1122@celebrianna@dreaminsince1998@larrysouth@yonaomi123@NongpeeP @rosschienta17@nubianlegalmind@shyguitar @roshzanna@twtwb@Tasia@rosiepeonie188 @xu_lyfe@nikir@guinearoyal@icyphoenix @stroppyse @philosophie @thistle@Yongzura@thadora@jl08
