Hello everyone I hope you're doing good!!! I really enjoyed the 1st episode it made me feel as if I was watching a movie, and found myself hoping that the whole drama would take place in Cuba lol (such a pretty country) ! So I really enjoyed it but I just hope that it won't become draggy and they will start creating problems that could have been easily avoided 

Oh and PBG's english is so good in my opinion !

The premiere of this drama was truly gorgeous, and very much like a movie. The cinematography and transitions were expertly done, and the atmosphere and people of Cuba were a wonderful way to draw out the characters of Soo Hyun and Jin Hyuk. The fact that they meet by chance - and, of course, by fate - as strangers in a strange land with none of their societal constructs weighing them down is clearly going to be an important factor in all their future encounters.

 

I personally really enjoyed the acting, there was awkwardness, humor, tenderness and longing all blended really well together. But aside from Park Bo Gum and Song Hye Kyo, I really loved Kwak Sun Young as the assistant. She was funny and fiery, and her friendly dynamic with Soo Hyun really shows the latter in the best possible light. Jang Seung Jo only had one scene as the ex-husband, but I'm already very intrigued by their loveless marriage and what role he'll play in our upcoming romance.

âEncounterâ Kicks Off With Stellar Viewership Ratings, Leaves Its Mark On tvN History

 

“Encounter” Kicks Off With Stellar Viewership Ratings, Leaves Its Mark On tvN History

Nov 29, 2018
by E. Kang
 

tvN’s “Encounter” is off to a fantastic start!

 

Starring Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum, the drama is about two people of vastly different backgrounds and personalities who begin a whirlwind romance after a chance meeting in Cuba.

Its premiere on November 28 brought in viewership ratings of 8.7 percent with a peak at 10.1 percent according to Nielsen Korea.

 

“Encounter” now holds the title of having the highest viewership for the premiere of a tvN Wednesday-Thursday drama. Not only that, but it also went down as having the second highest viewership ratings for the premiere of a tvN drama overall, second only to the record held by “Mr. Sunshine” at 8.9 percent.

 

While ratings for cable dramas are aggregated in a slightly different manner, “Encounter” claimed the highest ratings among all Monday-Tuesday evening dramas across both cable and public broadcasting channels as well. (not Monday-Tuesday but Wednesday-Thursday evening dramas)

 

It performed strongly among tvN’s target audience of those in their 20s-40s, recording an average of 5.1 percent with at peak at 6.1 percent. It was particularly popular with female viewers ranging from teens to those in their 30s.

 

While not without its criticisms, “Encounter” brought in an undeniable interest, with Song Hye Kyo, Park Bo Gum, Cuba, sunset at Malecón, Havana, and other related terms rise on real-time search rankings during its broadcast.

 

SBS’s “The Last Empress” also continued strongly with ratings of 5.7 percent and 7.9 percent during its November 28 broadcast.

 

MBC’s “Children of Nobody” recorded 3.8 percent and 4.7 percent in viewership while KBS2’s “Feel Good to Die” brought in ratings of 2.4 percent and 3.5 percent. MBN’s “Love Alert” saw a viewership of 1.7 percent.

Been a while since Park Bo Gum appeared in a drama. I'm watching this because of Park Bo Gum. ❤

2. [+2927,-350]
It's nice just seeing Song Hye Gyo's and Park Bo Gum's face. My eyes and ears feel good~


3. [+2162,-280]
Ah, my heart fluttered so much... 


4. [+2774,-1123]
To be honest, Song Hye
Gyo's acting is the same. Park Bo Gum's hair is like an 
ahjumma's. The script is childish and predictable. I couldn't stop laughing while watching it.. Am I the only one? The only thing that's fine is the cinematography. I was looking forward to it a lot, what a pity... 

5. [+1887,-341]
It's fun. I'm already looking forward to tomorrow. Been a while since
I'vewatch a drama-like drama.

6. [+1696,-631] 
To be honest, it's boring. ㅠㅠ


7. [+1462,-589]
They don't match, and they are awkward
.... 

8. [+1166,-304]
Song Hye
Gyo's acting in this is the same as what she has always been doing. Park Bo Gum is still not into his role yet. He's all over the place because he's nervous. The two don't match each other too. 

9. [+1088,-382]
Am I the only one who finds this boring? ㅠㅠ

Awkward, awkward, awkward. They don't match each other. 


2. [+1410,-399]
The first episode is fresh. I thought I was watching an animation. Song Hye Gyo is pretty, and Park Bo Gum himself is a healing boyfriend. ♡


3. [+1391,-715]
Awkward, greasy, cheesy, they just don't match. 


4. [+694,-125]
It felt like I was watching a movie. Song Hye Gyo is so pretty, Park Bo Gum is so handsome. ㅠㅠ


5. [+930,-561]
Song Hye Gyo... her acting is a little... This really isn't it. ㅠㅠ


6. [+528,-211]
Why are both Song Hye Gyo's and Park Bo Gum's acting like that
.. Song Hye Gyo's expressions and her tone are the same. Park Bo Gum is awkward. 

7. [+374,-57]
Park Bo Gum is handsome, Song Hye Gyo is pretty. It's so heart fluttering. 


8. [+520.-217]
They really do not match. It feels like an aunt with her nephew. It's too obvious that she's older.

p/s: when the drama pairs younger male lead with older noona, i expected this will happen :unsure:

Whenever I encounter the comment 'boring' I always make a follow question, "Why is it boring?" and often the ones who say it cannot support their assertion. My guess is that it's a question of "genre preference". An emotional melodrama will appeal to many, especially to older women, but might appeal to men and the younger generation.

I happen to like this genre.:wub:

 

Article reviews are mostly, if not all, positive. Negative reactions come from a significant number of netizens.

Those negative comments about their age gap just can't be helped. More attention is probably on SHK and PBG simply because they are SHK and PBG..two equally popular actors whose names alone are enough to get the hype. :) 

 

Btw, I love this pic...the visuals, side profile.. ❤

Encounter - Episode 1

 

I like the first episode.

 

The episode is beautiful from many perspectives. The scenery is nice and so are the cinematography and its colours. The two main actors are beautiful and so is their acting (more on this below). And the same can be said about the first encounter and following interactions between the two main characters, Cha Soo Huyn and Kim Jin Hyuk.

 

The script of the first episode is good. It is well thought and mature. It shows the potential for a heartfelt, meaningful and challenging journey of the two main characters towards their happiness. I like the dialogues between Cha Soo Huyn and Kim Jin Hyuk, between Cha Soo Huyn and her secretary, and even between Cha Soo Huyn and her former husband. The introduction of the main characters and their encounter was done very smoothly. The music was in sync with the atmosphere. The pace of the first episode is just nice. It is not too fast, and it should not be too fast given the story, setting, style and atmosphere. But it is not too slow, as there are already developments in the feelings of the two main characters, which might take a few episodes for other dramas. Putting the lines, developments, scenery, actors, music, colors all together gives me a very warm and romantic feeling.

 

The actors did a very good job. It is only the first episode and Song Hye Kyo already showed us a wide range of emotions. She was vulnerable yet competent and strong. She was very lonely, but has not given up hope. She was obviously cold from the outside but could also have a warm heart.  She was realistic but romantic. She might be afraid of new things but also eager to learn new things. And while she was very mature given her background and what she has been through, there was a bit youthful shyness in her interaction with Kim Jin Huyk. 

 

Park Bo Gum was also able to demonstrate a lot of layers. He was young but mature. He was positive and romantic but reasonable. He was curious but respectful. He was nice but not over the top. He was playful but honest and sincere.

 

Both actors are very good at acting with their eyes. Of course, since it was just the first encounter, it would not be reasonable to expect the actors to show deep feelings and emotions to each other (yet). But certainly, I could feel that there was something between the two main characters. Just look into their eyes when they saw and talked to each other, their smile when they danced with each other, their gestures when they walked together, I believe you would feel the same thing. 

 

These are the things I like about the first episode.

 

I appreciate the efforts of the whole crew in creating this meaningful, beautiful, romantic and subtle episode. And I hope you do, too.
