Personally, I'm not sure I trust the writer that much. :sweatingbullets: There are some details in the earlier episodes that niggled at me, but I brushed them aside so I can enjoy the drama as a whole... 

 

I think the writer has totally underplayed the effect this relationship has on JH and his family. In real life, if someone like JH dates someone like SH, his family would be hounded by reporters... Neighbours, friends and passerby would be whispering and pointing at not just him, but also his family.  I wouldn't be surprised if we see articles after articles digging dirt on JH and his family. But we didn't really see much of this. Going against the Taegyeong group has also shown minimal effect - I was expecting a lot worse. So taking this into consideration, JH's mother seems unreasonable. I sympathize with her feeling, but don't condone what she did behind his back.

 

Yeah... these two eps have made me put on my “suspicious viewer” goggles again.  Pretty much the only thing I trust a drama writer to do is break my little shipper heart.   

 

But that said!  I do like that a theme of the drama is personal growth!  I’m not impressed with anyone’s communication skills in this drama other than JinHyuk’s dad, DaeChan, and Teacher Lee.  They say how they feel and are honest with themselves and other people.  Everybody else needs to take Communciation 101.   But the other characters are making steady improvements toward facing their demons and trying to conquer them.  

 

Although I'm sad about SooHyun’s decision, she deserves some applause for how far she’s come from the Ice Princess persona that we saw at the beginning.  She’s shared her feelings with two people, and she would never have done that before.  She can see herself as being part of the world now, thanks in part to JinHyuk, and that’s something to celebrate.  

 

Even WooSeok’s fake girlfriend got some closure for herself by telling SooHyun the truth! And that allowed SooHyun to close that door, finally.

 

The remaining characters that are need of personal growth are JinHyuk’s mom and the only one who can help her is JinHyuk himself.  I think he is refusing to acknowledge how much anger and fear his mom has about what’s happening.  Just as he ignored all the signs that his childhood best friend wanted more than friendship.  Luckily that didn’t blow up in his face, but this situation with his mother sure as heck has.  Hopefully, him resolving the situation with his mom will be the focus on the next episode.

So... my heart created walls around this drama.. I wanna trust the writer but given her previous works, they were heartbreaking to say the least. I hope she will prove me wrong. Because seriously, why build up our otp, make the audiences see how much they have grown as a person and together only to have them break up?

 

CSH’s predicament is really critical. You cant blame her if she’s seriously considering breaking up with him. His family is at steak. But what I’m confused about is, this issue has happened before. They were at a stand still once and CSH made the choice of going back to KJH. What she needs is to be reminded of the fact why she chose to go back to him. 

 

Ice breaker:

Those extras on the street, in the bakery and library. How fortunate are they? They saw pbg and shk all in one setting. They really can die happily now.

Also, why can KJh's mother worry about her perfect oldest son, the one who did no wrong.  You seriously  expect the mother to be cool with a richer, older divorced woman who is also from a famous family? Who has saints like that? I would have  issues with someone  like CSH. But I know we can't say anything  these days about our children's  choices,. Doesn't  mean  one is close minded or not nice. Its only  been a few episodes. Why can't she warm up slowly?

 

I would agree with this point only if everyone also extended the same understanding to SH’s mother. Why would she want a much poorer and  younger man for SH? She has the country’s richest and most powerful family wanting SH as their daughter in law, she would be a crazy mother not to want that for SH. If SH isn’t desirable in JH’s mother’s eyes then I’m sure SH’s mom doesn’t see JH as a catch either but nobody tried to understand her perspective.

 

If JH’s mom is worried about snide remarks from a few neighbors, SH’s mom will have to face the same situation from her circle of friends. 

 

In the conversation between SH’s mom and dad today it became apparent that they do or did love one another, she says she has faced all the humiliation and hardships in their life so that their dreams could come true. SH’s dad actually acknowledges all the hardships the mother has gone through.

 

When the dad says it’s time for the two of them to dream some new dreams, it’s clear how exhausted she is and SH’s mother feels betrayed that she did her end of the hardwork towards their life’s plan but both SH and the dad have had a change of mind while she was still stuck in that phase of her life.

 

I still don’t like SH’s mom but I felt a lot of pity for her after that conversation.

Agreed on you for that feelings. She is the most kind and understanding in the three mothers in my point of view before but the most coward now. That's it! Because  a mother is always brave in terms of protecting children's happiness.:heartbreak:

 

Agreed with everything but the last point :)  I think a lot of mothers I’ve know would say a mother is always bravest when protecting their child’s life.  JinHyuk’s mom wants him to live safely, peacefully.  With no bad words spread about him, no jealous people asking for favors. And within that life, that safe life, she has had happiness and so she believes JinHyuk will have happiness too.  If she has to hurt him now and make him unhappy now, so that he can be safe, his mother is willing to do it.  Because in her own experience, happiness will come eventually.

This is the problem with SH...she doesn't share her feelings with JH. If she's not comfortable telling JH that his mom met her behind his back, she should just inquire and get opinion from JH on what they should do if JH's mom is opposed to the relationship...

 

I mean he's a CEO of a famous hotel. She should have been able to think logically on what to do and how to strategize befitting a real 37 years old...

 

I would be upset if CSH is asking for a break-up again since it doesn't make sense logically due to the reasons that I have mentioned in my post above...

@beebeepTotally agreed with your comment.

Jin Myung was great because he was perceptive enough to not want to get his brother involved, that moment when he told JH not to have strange thoughts shows his understanding of his brother’s personality. JM wanted to protect his brother from knowledge of the fight because he knew it would add more strain on JH. 

 

@ahdrianaa I really like Jin Myung's atttitude to KJH and family.

LOL....You kidding me right? What is there to forgive CSH? 

 

We all know that it is KJH's MUM who begged her to break up. HOw is this SH's fault, my dear?

 

Should a boyfriend have a mother who is so selfish you mean....haha...nothing to do with CSH. She loves KJH so much. It's not like she wants to break up. Consider her predicament, not just KJH's.

 

There is no question of a boyfriend bearing a sad feeling of being asked to break up if HIS MOTHER DID NOT INTERFERE. Right? 

The crux is she doesn't want to break up but she could see her boyfriend's family deeply affected. That is reality. What else can she do if she doesn't want to cause conflict between mother and son?

-

CSH is going through a heart-wrenching time ....let's not blame her. Her plate is full....lol.

 

@jl08

I will be unpleasant to CSH's character and Writer Nim if CSH chose to ask for break up with KJH again. (the previous one is taking a break from the relationship)

 

Now it is still in the "if" stage, I understood CSH's pain but I really hope that she will not ask for breaking up. 

I also hope that CSH can remember that KJH&CSH were in deep pain when CSH decided to do so and KJH mentioned that CSH's judge like KJH was too weak to bear the obstacles was upsetting KJH the most. 

 

As I mentioned in my comment that it is foreseeable that KJH&CSH's dating will be criticized by the press and people and has not gotten a  warm welcome from KJH's parent.

 

Relocaiton to Sokcho, KJH's revealed personal info, objection by KJH's mom, and etc. should not lead to CSH's request to break up anymore but she can express her sadness and cry as much as she can to reflect her sorrow for the choice in love life that KJH and CSH chose.

KJH and CSH can gradually attempt to face the situation, mitigate KJH's mom's disapproval together, and are ready to live with coming obstacles.

I second that...

And if there's anyone that needs to seek forgiveness from KJH, it's his one and only MUM! She is the one who drove his girlfriend to the extreme...so bad that she wanted to take sleeping pills to soothe her pain all over again. 

No thanks to JH's omma, KJH might face the break up that both never wanted. Yes, BOTH. If anything, she is responsible for making her son suffer as well.

 

This! Don't blame SH when it was his mum who caused them to suffer. No matter how good her intention was, it wasn't the right thing to do. 

 

Spoiler

Kinda reminds me of the time when some fans were blaming KMY for rejecting YSJ in DotS. They didn't even try to understand why she had to do that. Lol

I’m not really familiar with his previous works but I am holding on to the fact it would be an unwise choice to close the drama with two more heavy episodes.

 

This is kinda like their situation in episode 9, only this time it’s like a million times more complicated.

 

I’m still hoping that they won’t break-up. I have a nagging feeling in my head that they won’t. And I hope SH is reminded by the good memories they have and hopefully it sustains her until they can come up with a solution around JH’s mum.

 

And holy molly, TG has been completely overshadowed by the momma drama. Like is the lawsuit still on? What happens now? Ah we need more episodes!

1. +662, -23 There's no boyfriend like Park Bogum/Kim Jinhyuk in this world... I've fallen into the black hole and there's no exit... I know that Jinhyuk is going to be wherever Suhyun-ie is at and I understand that Suhyun-ie's heart hurts but please don't break up ㅠㅠㅠ Don't cry ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
2. +485, -11 These two have big hearts that's why they always think of each other.. Just go love each other ㅜㅜㅜㅜ Don't shake up my heart ㅠㅠㅠㅠ How am I supposed to wait for 1 weekㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
3. +110, -23 When Song Hyekyo cried, her acting was really good this time. She's beautiful and really matches well with Park Bogum. Applause to these two.
4. +110, -37 I just want to say that Song Hyekyo is seriously pretty 
5. +28, -1 Wow....... Because the title is 'Boyfriend' I thought it was going to be a light drama, but I didn't know it was going to be a heart-breaking drama.......
6.+24, -1 Don't go ㅠ Kim Jinhyuk-ssi can't give up at all~~

I appreciate your thinking but JH and SH are 100% responsible for their actions and reactions to whatever problems thrown at them

 Agree....provided they live in a bubble with no other people to consider.

I agree that SH and JH should talk it over but in this instance, she can't. It's betrayal of his mum to the highest degree and ultimately might prove his mum right that she's not to be trusted. Add that to the mum's list of fearful about disruption to their normal lives etc...

I said yesterday that if CSH confides in KJH about his mum, hell might break lose if JH confronts his mum..

I know why Hye kyo accepted this drama. She is the main person in this drama and have a lot of scene that she can portray her rich acting.  i watched all of her drama, her acting is the best in BF.  one of the factor is her co-star.  Bogum has very expressive eyes. his tone of voice, line delivery, gestures and movement could help Hye Kyo acting more shiner too.  could not believe they have 12 years age gap as superb chemistry . They  make us feel their love real and we all so excited over 2 sad episode.  I just wondering Writer is writing this script by watching hye kyo and bogum real life.. Let's  stick around this thread and talked about it after final episode. i tried not to write alot. let's watch/ replay naver video .:D

SH, Dearest Darling,

 

We all know you are breaking up with him in your head.

Keep it, do away with those thoughts & forget about it.

Please don't voice it out.

All will be okay in due time.

 

Yours Sincerely, 

 

JH's stalkers who are waiting to snatch him away from you.:)

 

Wait!  If you are a JH stalker, shouldn't the advice you offered in your letter to SH be the exact opposite so that it would free up JH for your lascivious designs?

Because she wants his family to accept her, remember her conversation with the old widow.

 

It’s evident even when she is talking to Sec Jang 

SH: (crying) Mijin ah, I truly hate the idea of having to break up

MJ : that’s what I mean, don’t break up. Don’t think of anyone else except the two of you. 

SH : that’s the difficulty, I want go pretend like problems don’t exist but it keeps coming back to me. 

MJ : Soohyun ah look back at your past, you have overcome much bigger problems. So don’t let this bother you.. please 

SH : I am worried, I am very worried.. you know his personality.

Haven't replied in soompi forums since forever and this drama basically made me break my streak T_T

 

Anyway, haven't really watched ep 13 and 14 because I'm avoiding the heartbreak but just looking through the posts my heart is still breaking!!! 

All I need to know is that CSH still hasn't spoken the words yet which would mean there is a glimmer of hope that would divert her intentions of asking JH to break up. I know she's gone through this already in the earlier stage of their relationship and her feelings might be much worst right now, but I wish she can be reminded of every single thing that had happened between her and JH. ALL THE GOOD AND THE BAD. I feel like that way, she can get another perspective instead of just ending it with JH just because of the mom because there is so much more of their relationship that they have built together, to begin with. I hope the writer didn't nurture their relationship so much just to let it fall back down with just a single reason. In the end, I think I'll wait for the preview before I watch 13 & 14 because I don't want my heart to be crushed just yet. Good luck to all of us!!! Waiting for next week will for sure be excruciating.

 I’ve decided to try predicting what’s going to happen next.  Hold onto your hats:

 

At the end of their date, JinHyuk is going to give SooHyun the camera case gift.  SooHyun will accept it.  Then she’ll break up with him.  After it sinks in, she drives him, but instead of driving home, she takes him to the local city hall and she reveals that they’re going to to get married right then and there!  

 

Then the last two episodes are SooHyun wrapping up the lawsuit and an extended montage of their honeymoon in Cuba.  

 

100% this will happen.  B):thumbsup:

Of course you can. You're free to be unpleasant to anyone...lol. But I'd like to correct that CSH did not choose to ask for break up.

 His mum asked her to break up. Not her choice..

I rest my case that CSH is not responsible for the breakup. It's her decision, yes but it is not she who wants a break up. She doesn't want to put JH in a difficult situation - torn between his mum and her. That is the catalyst for her decision.
