    Yes! Good insight about the two VO. Since the first time I heard the VO at the ending, I thought it was the present and the future overlapping. This is why I'm convinced they are together, happy!

    To me, from TVN's subs (and from what ower translators said), that conversation was about the son. YH appears there as the mother. It is normal that when parents (divorced or not) are talking about their children, they will make references to the other parent. I don't see any indication that they are together, because YH's reference is only secondary to the conversation. What is the purpose for that conversation? To me, to do the up date about DH's personal life. Could it be done differently? It could, but the whole thing about this show related to DH's character (since the first episode) is: they don't show it straightforward, they show it in an indirect, hidden, implicit way, through nuances and half words. In this sense, the drama remained consistent. To me, that random guy represents "the Viewers". Writer is telling to us that YH is living abroad, time has passed, she changed status from "my wife" to "JS'smother". If we get it this way: they are definitively separated, we can appreciate better what comes after that. What I see then is a DH "out of character" because he isn't passive anymore, he takes action to show interest and to make physical contact: he invites her, he asks to shook hands and keeps it until she makes the moviment to drop the hand, he stares at her with emotion, he simply can't contain his bliss/happiness when she makes a promisse to buy him food. To me that sad face is in fact only a half sad face, due to the fact that he can't prolong their time together there. I will share a personal experience about sad face: when I first met my husband, after some time, we exchange our telefone numbers and I said "have to go". He said ok and made a sad face: I read that as if he was sad because I had to go and he was really enjoying my company and would like to prolong it. His sad face made my heart flutter . I really thing the whole scene was well played and directed: we can see many emotions at play - shyness, insecurity, awkwardness, happiness, sadness, fondness, longing, determination, hope. And, to close it, a foreshadowing from one of their dates. After a first impression full of conflict, I'm really in peace with this ending now. I'm sure they will be happy together.

    How I whish I could have watched the episode with TVN subs!!! I wouldn't have be so conflicted about the ending, it wouldn't have downplayed my pleasure. What I big difference it makes. The whole conversation is about the son, not about the mother.

    Believe me: the subbers are nonshippers lol! I think only Dramafever has subbed it, and the others sites "pirated" the subs. I have the same problem as well when I first watched the drama at Kissasian. The subs make no sense with the flow of the story. So, they are not reliable. But our own wonderful translators here, who I'm sure are more reliable, have already solved this problem. You just need to read their posts. Through then, you can see that DH and YH are really no more a couple: they are separated for sure, but it is not clear if they're already divorced. My bet is yes.

    Even if he would be gentle with young people, it would be the male one. He barely speaks with female workers. The drama not only did show his reservation towards female workers, it explicitely did say it: during the last meeting with the directors, when everything about JA-YJ was revealed, they pondered what kind of feelings DH had, they explicitely said (amazed) that DH never did drink even a cup of coffee with a female employee!

    It explain why your husband classifies DH-JA as father-daughter lol. He is sending a message lol.

    I assume that TVN character guide are using korean age system. So: 1. At the start of the drama - winter season round february: he is 12 going on 13 in korean age, which means 11 going on 12 in western age. 2. At the end of the drama - round mid of spring season: he is 14 in western age, which means 15 in korean age. If his birthday is before the mid spring, then 2 years have passed. If his birthday is after mid spring, then 3 years have passed. At the end, we have at least 2 years of time skip, but I'm more inclined to believe it was 3 years. Anyway, 2 years is a more reasonable time to set up a successfull company, and also (as @tiger457_stv has pointed out) to make plausible the company transfers JA to Seoul's branch office. About YH, the pics at DH's desk show clearly that she is living there; before his break down, he said she will live there to study (as excuse of separation). The very moment of the break down is telling us that he is living alone. He confirms it after time skip when he said she is living there. We have at least 4 opportunities where the show tells us they are separated and she is living abroad. To me, there is no doubt that she is living there since the period she was looking for schools to herself. At the end of the drama, the writer wanted to show two health, healed, comfident, well off and (relatively) happy people. To achieve that stage two years (at least) makes very much sense. As to the fact that they wait such a long time to see each other (leting things to fate): this keeps in character, imo. Btw: It was @brose_stv who translated the part of the son's age. (Thanks!).

    I think @tiger457_stv is probably right. Unfortunally I don't remenber who wrote it but the post translated the dialogue between DH and the guy, and then DH was saying that his son was 14 years old in american age. And I agree too about the business: even if you have many contacts, normaly it will take more than 2 years to be relatively successfull. As this is a realistic drama, I think it is the case here. I really thought it very weird when I first watched the episode the fact that DH had already that level of success just in 1 year, but after the info about the son's age, it became clear. About the dialogue: after the correct translation of it here (thank you very much those who helped us!!!!), I think that that dialogue is VERY important, full of information, and gives closere to many things: 1. Says the age of DH's son: he was 11-12, he is now 14-15. Three years has passed; 2. YH after three years is living there - definitively separated; 3. It explain too that he had enough time to put his company in the path of success; 4. He calls "son's mother", indicating the status change. I think after three years, they are divorced or in the way to it. After three years, family (mother) already knows about it. In regards to his son: 14 years is old enough to understanding it. 5. It give to JA (as well to the viewers) the opportunity to know that he isn't married anymore. So, I think that every thing was clearly tied up when they see each other. Everything was cleaned to let a new future and happy and health life begin

    I'm a wife, and nope I wouldn't like it. I am the soulmate, kindred spirits of my husband lol. I remember I posted round episode 3 my thoughts about woman-single meats her kindred/soulmate man-married, and I said it couldn't work, because it would jeopardize the marriage, even if it was only platonic. I said then that: or the soulmates would have to be apart (what will make both not completely happy), or the marriage couldn't stand. No wife would like to witness her husband sharing (platonic) relationship with a kindred/soulmate. How can a marriage go on when the man (or woman) has more confidence, support, communication and understanding from a third part? When a third is able to know the husband/wife better? I would feel myself betrayed, even if it isn't sexual and purely platonic. Emotional relationship can be more deep than a sexual one. As many said here: DH - JA were having an emotional affair lol.
  10. [Drama 2018] My Mister 나의 아저씨

    I think it was more than that time. Then, It was still restrained, he didn't let himself completely give in to his emotions yet. Now, he was overwhelmed by his happiness, joy, emotions. He appears now completely free, unrestrained, as a little boy getting his most precious and anticipated toy. For a second I thought he was out of character lol. But no, he is in character, only he is now free to love and to be loved.

    My dialogue with my 12 yo daughter about the last scenes (I showed to her only this part): She - Will they not end together?!?! .... Oh, they are cute!! Me - Cute, how cute? She - Ah very cute. Me - What kind of feelings you think they have? She - Ah they are romantic feelings... It's a romance... Me - .... [showing some doubt in my face] She - Is it not a romance??!!!??!!! Me - Some think it is not. She - Mom!!! They speak telephaticaly!!! Telephathy!!! ... It is a romance! lol. I thought she was being very cute in her reactions lol.

    I'm not a writer (at least not a literary one, just write scientific papers), and my english is not worth lol. So I will suggest to add the sequence from the moment she hear his voice, and putting how her shoulders show her altered breath when seeing him. This was a detail that I think shows how much she was affected by it.
  13. [Drama 2018] My Mister 나의 아저씨

    Maybe he isn't just into subtle things? But I agree that that crying scene has more to do with his broken marriage (not missing her) than with JA, although I think that she has her share in it. I read that scene as his finally accepting his projected life doesn't exist anymore. Even if one isn't in love, it is very painful to let go of a marriage that represents what one thought it will be his perfect life. Well I showed to my two kids (a girl of 12 - she hadn't see any scene then, and a boy of 16 he had see a few shots) the scene when he asked to the barman if that pretty girl didn't come. My daughter asked if it was a love triangle (because KI) and both said they were in love. So...
  14. [Drama 2018] My Mister 나의 아저씨

    Yes. I think so: in no time they will be eating together. In fact, even if their relationship is only friendship, they will see each other and keep seeing each other, because friends or lovers, they are happy in one's other company. The least realistic interpretation, imo, of this end is to think they are going in "separated ways", meaning they won't keep in touch. As I said before, friends or lovers, realisticaly there is no reason to not keep in touch. Furthermore, I think the voiceover is a foreshadowing of their date; but if they are telephaticaly speaking, then well, this add to the impossbility to not be together as soulmates and lovers. However, I prefer to think is foreshadowing, for it is more beautiful, poetic and cinematic. Btw, I'm slowly putting my whole foot in my mouth .
  15. [Drama 2018] My Mister 나의 아저씨

    I thought it a bit weird because he went to the bar at least once. But, if he was avoiding her I would say this is for the same reason he was avoiding many things: afraid not being able to restrain himself. This is the only explication, and I would call it evidence that he was in love (but couldn't and even not want to be), and that he was at his limit. Only a "romantic" reason could explain his avoiding that place, imo.
