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?

 

What an amazing father!  How lucky anyone would be to have such a person as a parent.

I haven't watched it yet because my cellular internet is so slow, Viu wont load :bawling:

 

I heard there's no preview?
Man! They must be cramming for the episodes now.

Creating this good of a picture must be so time consuming. :wacko:

Thank God I watched episode 12 with subbed already; 10:37 Israel ST.

 

I love how KJH is carrying himself in every situation. He always shows that he has the guts and confidence whenever CSH is around to let her feel that he is able to protect her in his own ways. To let her feel that he is a dependable man. It is also normal for a person like him to be in deep thoughts about what is happening and what will happen next whenever he is alone that shows that he is a

deep minded person.

 

It is also amazing how he carries himself whenever JWS is around. He shows confidence, bravery and sincerity. Even a mighty king will give in when he sees ones sincerity. Like how Samuel harabochi saw it in JH. 

 

I think JWS will have a change of heart in the coming episodes because of the sincerity he is seeing in the couple. It is the sincerity that will matter.

 

All the scenes are overflowing in a subtle way. I like how KJH father talked to CSH. It is not a long conversation but you will feel and understand what his father is worrying about. The conversation just implies that the relationship is getting deeper and there is a need for a serious commitment. 

 

I love how the love birds are teasing each other while making the scenes more romantic and heart fluttering. No need for more elaboration and we are all aiming to have more and more of this and beyond.

 

The winning moment is the last scene while JH telling " I'm in trouble. There is no exit to be able to escape from your charm." Because he knows that SH sacrificed a big time with this decision even her beloved hotel is at stake and she doesn't care anymore. It is like choosing the hotel or JH.  

 

I kinda sympathize with the feelings of Hye In since it has been so long that her one sided love for KJH is just buried in her heart. That red planner is has been with her ages ago.  I was touched at that moment. I felt it since I was like her to a male friend a long time ago and it is frustrating to just keep it in your heart but I was able to confess through joking when we already had our own family, still friends until this time.

 

I smiled and giggled with the building of relationship of DC and Jang Biseo. They are a cute couple. 

 

JH family is so heartwarming. This family is what SH needs to be able to make up with all those coldness in her younger years.

 

Congressman CJH emphasized that election is important but his child's

happiness comes first. 

 

There are many scenes that almost break down SH confidence but JH is a happy soul that gives her courage.

 

The last four episodes will be again interesting to watch because these are the crucial episodes to knock out the conflicts and arrive to a victorious conclusion.

 

I am very optimistic that it will lead into a good ending.

Just watching the episode now and was cheering out loud when JH did Not bow to that rotter WS. 

 

There are no words for the awful thing he is doing to take over the hotel assuming that this means he can take over SH as well.  WS  needs to be brought down in a very painful way.

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:

 

Just to be on the safe side, I am taking her out to dinner and then we can watch the episode together. :love: 

 

I only have a vague notion of what went on during this episode but I know that CSH and KJH won't let me down.  I hope we see some progress in our 2nd and 3rd OTP's in this episode as well.  

 

Lastly, I am looking forward to finding out who the wolf is in the animation as well.  That one has been a real puzzler for me.

This is extremely off-topic, but I didn't realize that I was such a superstitious person westerner until I was rewatching ep11 and actually paid attention to this bit:

: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:

 

No, she didn't actually say those words. But she does open her eyes and says with a smile that JH isn't a Human Sleeping Pill, he's a Human Wakeup Pill.  So, what conclusion would you draw from those words. :D

 

 

On a different note, I'm really appreciating the roles that the fathers play in this drama, both SH's father and JH's father. I hope JH's mother will be accepting of SH as well, but I thought the scene with JH's father talking with SH was rather lovely. JH's father comes across as a thoughtful man, respectful of his sons' agencies and desires, even as he's concerned for them. I did rather love the conversation between JH's father and SH for what it shows about JH's father. I've included a translation of that conversation in the spoiler since subs are out.

 

Spoiler

JH Father: For coming to see you so suddenly, I’m sorry.
SH: No, I should have come to see you, but I thought you might be uncomfortable, so I just sent the wine.
Father: Thanks to you, we enjoyed the wine. Thank you.
SH: Not at all.
Father: I’m not a very good at speaking. The kids are around, and things like that…I can’t do it. (meaning his sons talk so he doesn’t have to talk much.)
SH: Please speak comfortably.
Father: When Jin Hyuk first appeared in the news articles, I didn’t think it was much of anything, so I didn’t even ask him about it. His feelings for you don’t seem to be shallow. What in the world I should do about this, I’ve been thinking about it a lot.
SH: I am somewhat…unusual, aren’t I? (me: there is a negative connotation to this world, especially in this context)
Father: Whether being special is the problem, or whether being normal is the problem, I can’t speak about that rashly.
SH: Jin Hyuk-shi has a thoughtful heart. Seeing how you are expressing yourself that way, why Jin Hyuk-shi is such a thoughtful person, I think I know why now.
Father: My son is better than me, of course.
Father: I asked Jin Hyuk about it. Is this something that I should be supporting or something I should be worried about. Of course, he tells me that he wants me to support it. But for a parent’s heart, worry always goes first. That Jin Hyuk and the CEO are going to have a hard time, the CEO knows that as well, don’t you? If you are both going to just suffer heartache and then end it, then I wonder whether it’s right that the two persons’ feelings for each other should continue to develop.
Father: I didn’t come to give you a hard time. I’m sorry.
SH: No. Of course you are going to feel that way. Since you’re a parent.
Father: Two people loving each other and so working things out is what love is about. But having only love to keep going forward, the road ahead of you both looks dangerous. So, just as Jin Hyuk had asked me to do, is it okay for me to support this?
SH: I know well that you calling me special is because I’m lacking. It may be difficult, but I would appreciate it if you would just watch us.
Father: It is difficult for the athletes who are entering the competition, for the person who is just cheering them on, well…

 

I loved JH's father humility in saying that JH is better than he himself is as well as his clear pride in his son, and his care for the woman that his son loves. JH's father is concerned, but he's not here to castigate anyone. Rather, JH's father wants to ascertain for himself, I think, that SH is as serious about JH as JH is about SH. So, the father's rather gentle warning to SH is to not go further if she thinks that SH and JH aren't going to be able to go the distance, if SH and JH are ultimately just going to part after going through the heartaches of being together. And, even JH's father closing analogy about how it's the participants who will have a difficult time rather than for the people who are cheering them on, is a sweet, rather humble sentiment.  Btw, I don't think that sentiment is entirely true, since I think the fans suffer some along with whomever they're supporting, but he is right that it's the participants themselves who will have to undergo the trials and live with the consequences.

 

Anyway, I'm with SH in admiration of JH's father and how he's surely influenced the man that JH has become.

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.

Yeah... I downloaded the ost and there are 2versions. Both are good!!!

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

 

Natch. I want his big bad mama to be smacked along with him. :D

 

On another thought, how cute was SH when she wanted a bite of the food that JH's mother had sent along to Teacher Lee because it looked so delicious. SH was so upset that Teacher Lee didn't even give her a bite, remembering that SH hadn't been able to eat the beef soup previously.

 

And, one more observation from ep 12. JH and SH have become more relaxed in their speech to each, though still using some polite speech rather than going completely casual. This isn't anything strange, btw, it's just a way to show a couple respecting each other. However, in the scene where JH buys sandwiches from Subway to eat with SH, JH reverts for a bit to completely casual which made me laugh. It's these lines that he says to SH:

 

"If I hadn’t asked you if had had dinner yet, then you would have starved again. Why are you doing that when you have a boyfriend? At times like this, you should call me and tell me to buy you something."

 

He's basically speaking just as her boyfriend here in order to give her a bit of a "scolding". He then reverts to his more normal politer speech fairly shortly after when he gives her his apology because he thinks that SH is having to go through more troubles because of him. SH disabuses JH of the notion since she's been at odds with TK Group for awhile now, but she doesn't know that WS had gone to see JH specifically to tell JS to lay off "his woman".

Just had my lunch so im gonna watch ep12 now lolz

Btw.. 

I love how CSH tears up everytime he sees KJH - hongjaedong painting scene, when she declared they were in some relationship, restaurant in cuba, terrace scene during year end party. Not sure if there are other scenes like this..

 

And when she said that she was happy... You can just feel it in you!!!!

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.

Sorry for cutting your post, but this, this right here is what struck me the most in episode 11.

 

Since episode 1, all we have heard from Evil Mammy and the Wanna-be evil mammy is that had it not been for them, CSH's father wouldn't be the head of his party. Had it not been for them, CSH wouldn't have been able to enter such a prestigious family, but now we know that this was their doing. I believe JWS saw CSH in a magazine, or on television and became somewhat of a fanboy of her. Then the arrangement began. His family threw money at her family to get their kids to marry. However, CSH's father had reservations about it. 

 

The uncle said that he HAD TO MAKE PROMISES TO HER FATHER. He had to convince them that CSH would be protected and cared for. The uncle was upset that JWS did not do what was promised. So, in essence, that divorce contract is technically invalid. The promise or contract made before marriage was broken by JWS, so this idea that CSH owes that family anything is preposterous! Moreover, now that JWS has entered the hotel business and has made himself co-CEO with these new shares, the other shareholders will care nothing about his Taeyeoung affiliation, especially if it goes against that bottom line. Now, his evil mammy can't sabotage the hotel, because her son has attached himself to it. JWS really is dumb. Stick to what you are good at. Clearly this isn't it. In fact, what does he do? All we see him doing is professionally stalking his ex-wife.

The power play that her ex-MIL instigated so that SH would be seen to still be obedient despite the divorce, and thereby reaffirming her position yet again, even in this issue, especially since Chairwoman Kim is planning on kicking SH to the curb afterward is just a mean and nasty ploy to belittle SH and her family. Of course, no one but Chairwoman Kim and WS fully appreciate that. And, though WS is aware of his mother's plans, especially since his mother specifically told him that while she would never accept SH as her DIL again, that she still wanted SH to be seeing bowing before her will, WS does nothing to try to protect SH. Rather, he's still hoping for the best that when he finally wins SH over again (can we say he is so delusional now?), that his mother will accept her again.

 

Anyway, on SH's side, she is being encouraged to be conciliatory to her MIL this once, for the sake of the hotel, for the sake of her father's career. And, of course the memorial day for WS' father

@stroppyse If SH play her cards right she could get out of alot of the agreements of her divorce and get money out of it.. To really embarass the Ex-MIL and WS is to take her new man with her to such function for all to see as they appear of the front headlines of the paper.. Her divorce agreenment said she must attend it didn't say she couldn't attend with someone.. This would put the evil lady in her place thinking she still runs things and wanting the world to know she controls SH and family.. 

 

(BE REAL BOLD SH IT"S TIME TO REALLY COME OUT, AND WS FATHER MEMORIAL WOUL;D MAKE A MEMORABLE OCCASSION FOR MOTHER AND SON )

 

She thinks she's going to control Dad with the election by offering him the presidency if SH gives up her share of the hotel business.. She's in for a rude awakening because once she realizes thats not happening she'll try and detroy the party that he represent but he already has a back up plan.. SH mom might stroke out when she learns it's her husband also whom turned his back on the president position which is why she never became the first lady all for his daughter happiness..

But this scene between JWS and his mother caught my attention:Encounter episode 12 JWS and event.png So based on this allegation, she is now forced to attend to the death anniversary but she can not enter the house any longer. That's why CSH just sent her car without being in the car. Notice that someone announced that CSH's car had arrived. So I had the impression that CSH used Chairman Kim's words to her advantage. She fakes her visit. Don't forget that Nam said that CSH has guts... 

 

Striking is that Chairman Kim has the intention to hurt CSH anyway. She can not escape. CSH's appearance or not will be used against her.If she doesn't come, then she will create a scandal andEncounter episode 12 chairman Kim.png

Here, we have JWS just sitting there and he knows his mother's intention. CSH will get hurt and what does her do? Nothing as he wants her to come because he will see it as a sign that he has still some chances with her. Not only he is selfish, but also delusional. 

 

Sorry but after watching this episode with subtitles, I am even more mad at JWS than before. But I have hope that

- JWS's uncle will turn against him, when he realizes that JWS won't keep his promise. And the uncle has a huge influence in the shareholder meeting. 

- CSH's father has a hidden trump card in his hand that no one is expecting: Chairman Kim and JMO both believe that he will run as a candidate. Yet, I am quite sure that he will do something unexpected that will blow to Chairman Kim's face.

 

I really hope that CSH gets aware of JWS's move against JH (describing her as his woman) and she really shows her anger in a more emotional way. Moreover, I think, JWS should feel what she has been put through all these years: fear scandal and oppression because so far, JWS can do anything he wants.

All we see him doing is professionally stalking his ex-wife.

I think in the first place , TG doesn't want to sabotage the hotel but to reclaim the hotel again since it was always said by WS to DC that it is the face of their business and it prospered already.                                    Seeing the conversation of MIL and XH in episode 12, they don't connive with what purpose they have. WS needs to be in the hotel because of his unilateral feeling with SH. He clearly stated that he needed the hotel to be with SH always.  MIL needs the hotel because she just wants it back because it prospered already and not in the bankrupt status. She clearly emphasized that she would never allow SH in their house again. Inviting to house because of FIL DA is just to test the tide between them and, SH.                              

I agree he just needs to move on.          One thing for sure the Battle is now ON since Jang Biseo is the one who attends the event.  Brace up KJH and CSH. Our grape and peach.
