This episode i think is all about CSH showing his support for KJH. Though it started in last part of episode 9 i think when she drove all the way to sokcho. It's all about CSH's feelings for KJH..sacrifices, effort, and finally making a choice

I was watching @stroppyse clips and translations of the bed scene and realized that beautiful Saltnpaper "Take Me On" song now being sung by female vocalist?  Maybe signaling shift to SH following JH? Or maybe singer has been alternating and I just missed it ooops.

Chingus, what do you think about Woo Suk's uncle the former teacher and the hotel's director who convinced Soohyun's father for the wedding of  WS and SH? He emphasized that he convinced SH' s father because he knew that WS is a different person than that of his mother and father. He is telling WS that the hotel is a No-NO for him since this hotel is loved by SH very much.  

 

I think he will be a great help in the next episodes when the battle begins about who will own the hotel. Coz I think this scene will not be probably given an emphasis if this won't have n connection to the remaining episodes.

 

Another one is the scene of Congressman CJH making alliance to other party but not to TG favored party. And the start of secret investigation of Driver Nam.

 

I think all these scenes will help to build the "SOS" for our couple. The conflict is getting tighter as we all see what the MIL and Ex-Hubby are doing but the writer is also building up the characters of those people that will be significant to them to win the future battle. 

 

What's important is there is a love, trust and confidence within the couple since they are the one that will be challenged until episodes 16. 

 

Like all of you hoping that it will be a happy ending and I think I'm a lot on the optimistic side that they will end up with each other. 

 

What else can I say like you I really been hit by this Encounter fever. Another week again will have to pass and sleepless night will befall onto me again. This is me when I'm hooked with Kdrama and American TV series, that's why I avoided watching too much but being a fan of SHK and PBG, I just couldn't avoid to watch it even there was an age gap issue. But seeing them now, who will say that this an issue before; their chemistry is just so explosive.

 

Well, we only have 4 episodes left and it is getting sadder but for sure those 4 left episodes will be packed of mind blowing and heart rejoicing scenes. Peace and Love to everyone. Thank you for all of your profound analysis of every detail of the drama.

 

PS. I have not watched yet the episode 12 since I am still waiting for _. Thank you again that I had a sneak previews of this episode.

However, it makes sense that SH wouldn't be able to just sleep like that around JH, not when they're so in love and she gets so stimulated around him. :)

 

:joy: Was this actually included? Did she actually open her eyes and say those lines when JH left? 

If yes, can anyone post a still/gif/vid

Pretty please. Have pity on my poor soul :wacko:

This isn't the first time that they played the female version though.

Wow, WS has some nerve on him. He's using the fact that the Cuba hotel had gone into crisis, and then been resolved by a new employee rather than by SH herself as reasons why the hotel is actually too much for SH to handle alone. And, he knows that it's his mother's plotting that put the Cuba hotel into crisis in the first place. That is just low, low, low.

 

Until now, I've been defending WS as being mislead, but redeemable. I guess he's really his mother's son after all. Willing to do anything, no matter how reprehensible, if he can get what he wants. This isn't love any more. This is obsession that doesn't respect any boundaries.

 

Sorry. Just getting around to watching the episode now, and got infuriated at the excuse that WS uses to force his way into becoming the co-CEO of Donghwa Hotel.

 

Also, given WS' night time visit to JH to warn him off, JH knows that WS is there because of himself and SH, so now JH is going to feel some responsibility for making things even tougher for SH. Ugh.

The more infuriating is that he has evidence of his own mother's involvement but he just used it to blackmail director Choi instead of helping CSH which outlines his greed and selfishness. Then he acts as if he was coming to CSH's rescue, when in reality, he uses the opportunity created by his mother to come closer to her.

 

Concerning his mother, she actually entered that royal family but she acts as if she was a royal from her birth. I hope, she gets caught in her schemes and the media ruin her reputation. It would be great after that scandal, JWS is no longer seen as a good party due to his mother and his own behavior.

As you know, I have seriously disliked WS from the very start and I never trusted him.  But I was still willing to ship him with the girl from PR.  Now I don't think he should be with anyone ever. 

 

WS's behavior has gone from being merely distasteful and ugly to becoming reprehensible and possibly actually criminal.  No person who loves someone would treat them in such a manner.

 

He is in serious need of a smack down.....and you know what would be the most brilliant thing ever?  If his big bad mama was the one to do so.  :D

This might be a part of his restraint, he will try his best but he might not be able to ensure how far he could, upon external factors/obstacles.

Borrowing JH’s words, take me with you. 

 

@NongpeeP I really hate WS right now, borrowing and tweaking words from Ray Charles; hit the road JWS and don’t you come back no more, no more , no more.

No joke, I am really hungry. I am going to go eat now.:sweatingbullets:

 

 

@ahdrianaa I camped on no-no to this ex-husband, he have been using what his mom did for his own selfish, did more for his self-willed, and will do more for his self-centered.

@stroppyse  This ex-husband has thoroughly considered to be an devil from head to toe. 

This worst behavior has not just taken when he was "A dog in manger" but he let bad things be in CSH's life during marriage, during divorce, and after divorce by his mom with his acknowledgement and intended to use all CSH's obligations to control CSH.

I love SH's response to JH when he asks why she likes him. "Because Jin Hyuk-shi is Jin Hyuk-shi." And, she finally tells him that she loves him! Just, awwww...

In the episode 12, we can finally JWS's true personality: a hypocrite. In front of his mother, he complains to his mother that CSH shouldn't be forced to attend the family event (death anniversary of his father), on the other hand he is happy to remind driver Nam that there will be this family event where CSH has to appear. As you can see, he only defends CSH in front of his mother with words, yet in reality he uses his mother's scheme for his own benefit. He was nervous waiting for CSH's appearance and he wanted her to be there. So his claim that he couldn't protect her from his mother is proven wrong. He chose not to protect her as he always saw a benefit of it. 

Notwithstanding, he is a coward as he never tried to leave his comfort zone in order to win her heart. He thought, his handsome face and money via gifts would be enough to satisfy CSH. At some point, he came to the conclusion, CSH was the one who had no heart... he never questioned his own behavior.

During this whole episode, it is clear that JWS uses his mother's plans for his own benefit and I guess, so was it with the arranged marriage. I hope, he loses more than just CSH for real. He needs to feel what CSH has been put through due to him.

Episode 12: Netizen’s Reaction

 

Article: Naver 'Boyfriend' Song Hye Gyo gives up the hotel + family and chooses Park Bo Gum 
 

Spoiler

1. [+2475,-96]
This is the end of all melodramas. Today's ending.. Ha.. 
2. [+1805,-47]
Park Bo Gum's expression at the end made me tear up. ㅠㅠㅠㅠ "There's no exit" ㅠㅠㅠ Soo Hyun's courage is touching, I could feel Jin Hyuk's eyes that are filled with emotions. Their acting is so good. ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
3. [+1107,-42]
"There's no exit" those words.. it's heart fluttering. 
4. [+821,-35]
Every episode's ending is great. Today's episode is especially touching. This is such a high quality drama. 
5. [+738,-26]
There's really no exit, Jin Hyuk-ah. 
6. [+342,-3]
I'm touched by Park Bo Gum's consideration, he doesn't force his girlfriend to make difficult decisions. He's a man that you can't help but fall for. 
7. [+311,-5]
She didn't give up the hotel and her family...... If she doesn't want to be controlled by Tae Kyung the rest of her life, she has to end things now. I'm cheering for Soo Hyun who is finally trying to follow her heart and living her own life. The ending was so touching that I teared up. 
8. [+261,-6]
The drama is calming. Park Bo Gum's and Song Hye Gyo's affectionate and lovely acting are done well. That's why I was able to watch it comfortably. 
9. [+172,-2]
I teared up together with Park Bo Gum when he was tearing up. I could feel all of his emotions that are complicated. Jin Hyuk-ah, Soo Hyun-ah.. ㅜㅜ

Article: Naver 'Boyfriend' Song Hye Gyo breaks her promise with Cha Hwa Yeon... Park Bo Gum "There's no exit" smile 

1. [+1275,-21]
My heart hurts seeing how considerate Jin Hyuk is, and I teared up when Soo Hyun made a such difficult decision. The two look so pretty while caring and trusting each other. 
2. [+818,-18]
Park Bo Gum's expression at the end. ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ I teared up. ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ His acting is so good. ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
3. [+630,-14]
Ha... Park Bo Gum.. "There's no exit" He tried to smile while tearing up. I teared up too.  ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ There's no exit for Boyfriend. 
4. [+547,-10]
At the end, when the door opens, and Soo Hyun was standing there, I was about to tear up like Jin Hyuk did too. Really, what's so moving about standing in front of the door? Park Bo Gum and Song Hye Gyo have great acting skills. 
5. [+373,-42]
I'm in trouble~~~~ I can't break up with Park Bo Gum too~~~ ♡
6. [+146,-19]
Can't I watch them every day? Bo Gum and Hye Gyo~~ ㅠㅠ
7. [+107,-0]
This couple is so touching. They could only fall for each other because they are that way! Seriously, there's no exit in this drama!
8. [+105,-1]
Seriously, I know that there's no exit when it comes to Park Bo Gum... But I really like him..

@jl08 So far, this is the best drama I've ever watched for a long time. I hope, the ending won't disappoint me, but I am quite optimistic. I thought, the episode from yesterday was epic but the episode 12 was as good as the one before.

Wowwww, this is just like a roller coaster for me.

in the beginning of episode 12, it showed the suit and the lunch packs; I was thinking to myself: what is the main point in this episode, why suit vs lunch packs.

and now I understand it completely. Such a heart- warming touching episode that awaken every nerve cells in my body.

 Wow, WS; why you are so two faces, you used your mother’s scheme to hide your obsession. WS, that is not love, that is obsession. I want to see your face and your mom reaction when you know it wasn’t CSH in the car. Lolzzzz

JH’s dad seems to know who is coming when the bell rings; look at his facial expression, hahaha I know it is CSH, it’s not miss Lee Lolzz

 

I love it when CSH said : is he a human sleeping pills? He is a human stimulant!!! Omggggg daebak.... 

 

and seriously, JH/PBG ahhh, before this drama, I was very skeptical and apprehensive about your role as I haven’t watched any of your project. I watch this drama just to support SHK but now “there is no exist”  for me to escape from your charm, good acting and handsomeness.” 

 

well done, well done PBG.

Sadly, I have been trapped in meetings all day and missed the live run with you all.  I least I can go through your posts and review the dialogue, Gifs, Screencaps, and most importantly your commentaries & reactions.  I will enjoy reading them at my leisure this evening.  Thank you all for doing this.  I know it is a lot of work on your part but it really makes watching Encounter such an amazing group event.

 

Last night my wife was making me crazy asking what happened.  I told her she had to wait until we watched it together later that evening.  Now she is texting me trying to find out what happened in today's episode.  I told her our OTP took another break.  I have not seen text cursing like that in a long, long time.

 

Thanks for adding your thoughts to this thread.  I've enjoyed reading them. 

 

Very naughty of you to tease your wife like that!  Can't imagine what your supper will be like tonight.  ;):lol:

I only watched the first 5 minutes of the Episode and had to pause to post about Jinhyuk’s father and Soohyun..

 

DwkRrsfUUAAAZo_?format=jpg&name=medium

 

JS — When I first saw an article regarding Jin Hyuk, I figured it was nothing serious, so I didn't ask him anything. But he seems pretty serious about you. So I'm worried about what I should do. 

SH – I’m pretty unusual, aren’t I?

JS — It could be that you're unique, or it could be that he's normal. But it's not something I can judge so rashly. 

SH – Jin-hyuk is very thoughtful, Hearing you say that...makes me understand why Jin Hyuk is so thoughtful.

 

DwkR0fxVsAE0h75?format=jpg&name=medium

 

JS —The thing about love is that only you two matter. But the path you two must take looks too rough to be led just on your feelings. Would it be okay for me to support you two like Jin Hyuk said?

SH — When you call us special, I know you mean that I'm insufficient. I know it's hard, but I'd appreciate it if you'd keep on watching us.

JS —The players on the ring are the ones who have it hard. It's nothing for the onlookers.

 

———————

 

I really liked these parts of their conversation. Jinhyuk’s father is a wise man. His scenes with Jinhyuk had touched me deeply, and now I also appreciate this scene with Soohyun.
