I have not seen episode 15 yet; however, I did read the recap and I am so angry with JH's mom.  She isn't really thinking about JH, she is acting on her own personal biases.  I am peeved, I am pissed, :crazy: JH is hurting; SH is hurting and she has no remorse. 

I am still amazed, and I have been watching k-dramas for years, the first one was "Wide as the Earth, High as the Sky", I think it was that drama in which the mother made the son and daughter-in-law divorce because she did not get pregnant in the time frame she thought she should get pregnant.  All these years later, the dynamics still have not changed.   How do you arrange your lips to tell someone else to break-up with your child...and that is supposed to be love?  I am not Asian and do not fully understand the Asian culture; therefore, I do not pass judgement on the customs and practices, except on this issue.  When we have children, we nurture them, provide for them, protect them, and instill morals and values in them. Our job as parents are to prepare them to become productive and valued citizens in society,  loving spouses, and great parents.  Our job is not to guide (interfere in) their entire life from cradle to grave. Once they've reached adulthood,  the parents become a sounding board if needed, an adviser if necessary and a supporter.  Because, as parents, were blessed to have children, does not mean you meddle in their lives once they've become adults.  As JH's father said, JH's Umma  really does not know her son.  I do not think JH will ever look at his Umma the same.  Therefore, my question is was it worth it? Was breaking them up worth losing the love your son had for you?  A love where he smiles when he speaks to you on the phone, a love where he always thinks of you and worries about you...the only other person he loves as much as he loves you is SH.  JH's mother knows that both SH and JH are hurting, but it doesn't faze her, she has this delusional holier then thou, I know what is best attitude.   What she should do is to go to SH and tell her, "I was wrong." "JH loves you enough to weather any storm; therefore, do not break up I will support you." 

Please excuse any misspellings or grammatical errors, I am so peeved at this episode that I will wait until the weekend to watch it, after episode 16 is subbed.  If I find out that they did not get back together, I will skip both episodes.

I can't wait to watch this drama with subs.  All I can say from the little bit I've seen is the mother needs to watch, "Finding Nemo".  The mother said she knew she ripped out the CEO's heart....what about the fact that she's also ripped out her own son's heart.  It doesn't matter who you're with, all relationships are going to have problems; you can't protect your kids from hurt when it comes to love.

 

Can't help it, I still think the mother is extremely childlike.

I have just finished watching Encounter ep.15 with Eng subtitle.

 

It is really surprised that I enjoyed this episode till I watched the whole episode in one go without any pause as in some episode.

 

Regardless that we wanna watch KJH&CSH be happy togerher, the scriptwriter has flowed the story for each character so reasonable from each of them’s perspective, KJH’s mom, KJH, and CSH do the right thing upon the background in each life.  

 

The reasonable script and amazing acting to portray at a certain level to make audiences receive all messages and emotions.

Unbelievably, I have never enjoyed dramatic vibe but this acting project as Encounter can make me very pleasant.

 

Casts&Crews made this masterpiece to the stage of no regret even a single second and deliver this drama excellently. 

 

KJH by PBG can carry emotions deliver to touch audiences’ heart. I cried with him when he ran to CSH’s office after knowing about mom. 

His almost unable to breathe is very realistic to KJH’s condition. 

 

CSH by SHK makes audiences feel what is very hard to understand. 

 

Fans must be very proud to watch PBG&SHKbcan do these difficult scenes seamlessly.

 

 

 

- KJH’s mom has done for her beloved son’s future to be peaceful as she thought it would be the best for him, time can cure. 

KJH heard his mom’s perspective with understanding. 

 

KJH’s mom: 

 

“ I did that because I knew Jin Hyuk would never give up. He never looks back once he makes a decision. I don’t regret it. Once time passes, it’ll all quiet down. 

Jin Hyuk may be suffering right now, but he’ll forget about everything with time.

Once he gets married and has kids of his own, his memories of this moment will become vague. 

.

I just want to live a normal life like we’ve always had thus far. 

Although we weren’t always abundant with food or money, we 

were always able to live with a smile on our faces.

.

Do you think I don’t know that Ms.Cha is also hurting right now? 

I’ll get punish for breaking her heart but I can’t let Jin Hyuk get hurt”

 

 

KJH’s dad:

 

”Back when we didn’t have enough money to start a store. I had to go to the fruit market and you had to wake up at dawn to open the street stall. And although Jin Hyuk was only seven years old, he helped us out by taking care of his little brother at the break of dawn. Jin Hyuk withstood all those hard times for us. How could you not do the same when you’re his parent? 

 

 

- KJH understand CSH so well when he explained to Teacher Cha that being in relationship with KJH made CSH guilty to ruin KJH whom mom loves with hope of normal life. 

KJH knew CSH suffers from breaking up with him till CSH planned to move to Cuba for a big while to cure. This almost made him give up when he saw her miserable. 

 

KJH: 

 

“It’s what I was determined to do, but she ended up persuading me. 

I thought that I had brought her out from a tall and deep castle.

 

Judging by what she said though, it was as if I had locked her up in another castle. A castle of guilt.

She thinks she was causing pain to everyone around her. That’s the guilt she felt. So being locked up by that kind of guilt would make our love meaningless. That’s why I’m going to let her go”

 

- For CSH, it is heartfelt when she mentioned KJH’s mom’s tanerine syrup symbolized KJH as valuable son to his mom.

 

CSH:

 

”Your mom made me tangerine syrup. It was so simple and pretty. It was something nobody could buy with money. How can I break something so precious?

I can’t do that, Jin Hyuk

.

.

That ‘s how chaotic our family is. 

Do you really think that simple and pretty tangerine syrup suits me?

.

.

I can’t let you or people who are precious to you slowly get exhausted because of me. 

I think that would be more painful than not being able to see you.” 

 

 

How the writer created this splendid script with reasonable perspectives, each character has his/her background of thoughts and each of them choose to do for another with love and care from the bottom of heart, not for himself/herself. 

 

How actors/actresses portray this gorgeous to make audiences amaze?!?!

 

I swear several times during watching because of superb features appearing in front of my eyes on screen.

I understand SH

 

This was the calm before the storm. She HAD to breakup with JH, especially after his mother cried that she was scared about their relationship disrupting their family.

SH knew her father was going to announce he wasn't running for president.

She knew that her family was making a clean break from Taeyeoung Group.

She knew that Taeyeoung Group would try and sue her and the hotel.

She knew that the press would be following them around viciously due to all of this.

All of that plus knowing how his mother felt, she had to let him go (even for a little while) so that he wouldn't be completely caught up in the media firestorm as well.

So, her actions albeit heartbreaking, are justified.

 

But, I'm sorry. JH's mother is CANCELLED! The fact that she doesn't have any remorse or regret is just TRASH!

The fact that she told his father that SHE wants him to have any ordinary life, as if whatever life he planned for himself is meaningless if she doesn't approve of it... I can't.

And, the fact that JH did not yell, scream, frown, cry or even sigh in front of his mother is yet another reason she is like that. She knows that he will bend to her will and what she wants, much like SH's mother was. She felt guilty about breaking them up, but not enough to say anything, apologize or have any regrets. 

Throw the whole mom away! :angry:

 

One more thing: I hate to say this, but when JH overheard his mother and left. Then came home, put the blanket over her and quietly went to his room. Then turned around the next morning, fake smiling and NOT saying anything. My stomach turned. He, for the first time, was acting like SH's ex-husband. He is fully aware of how his mother hurt her, and he did absolutely nothing. He said nothing. JH needs to know that it is okay for him to be his own man. That is the only way he and SH can be truly happy.

Episode 15

I have just watched Episode 15 with subs, and I have nothing but appreciation and respect for the whole crew and cast members. 

 

It is another well-thought-out, well-executed and well-acted episode.

 

Despite a lot of challenges, the episode remains beautiful, sensitive, and thoughtful.

 

While a lot of fans might be displeased as they understandably wished for a quicker movement of the sad scenes so that they could see more happy scenes of the main couple, I appreciate that the episode stays loyal and consistent with the pace of the drama and does not feel rushed. 

 

While many viewers might be understandably disappointed at Soo Huyn for deciding to breaking up with Jin Huyk,  I feel the move to be totally realistic and expected. It is totally consistent with the background, perspective, hesitation, struggle and fear that the character has gone through.

 

While a lot of people might be understandably unhappy to witness Jin Huyk’s pain and sorrow, I appreciate that the episode takes time to describe his emotions (just like how episode 14 takes time to narrate Soo Huyn’s emotions), which in turn demonstrates the strength and the depth of his love, as well as his character and personality (look at how he treats his mother throughout the series, even after he discovered what and how she did behind his back with the love of his life, it says so much about Jin Huyk’s personality and explains so much how Soo Huyn thought that she should not force herself into his family to make everyone suffer).

 

As a result, the episode removes any doubts that one might have over Park Bo Gum’s acting ability (just like how episode 14 does a great job in showing Song Hye Kyo’s acting). 

 

And I’d just like to end this note by bringing us back to the very first teaser of the drama which indicates Jin Huyk’s as the source of bright and color for Soo Huyn’s grey world and reveals the couple’s smile facing each other after the biggest wave is gone.

 

I am sure that what will happen in the end. 

 

 

 

@twtwb

Thank you so much for beautiful comment which I am not capable to write by myself but you have completely done as my feeling.  

esp. Your part 

 

“While a lot of fans might be displeased as they understandably wished for a quicker movement of the sad scenes so that they could see more happy scenes of the main couple, I appreciate that the episode stays loyal and consistent with the pace of the drama and does not feel rushed.”

I used to complain why the last 3 episode must full of dramatic vibes but after I watched ep.15, I wanna run to apologize all casts and crews who stand with professional pride to create a masterpiece of acting project by no need to indulge audiences.

@twtwb @NongpeeP Thank you so much for your comments! I really feel the same but can't write as beautifully as you did.

Encounter is really a masterpiece for me. Cast and crew stay loyal to their plan and it's wonderful. The story is reasonable and beautifully told. Their acting is amazing! I really appreciate this drama so much!

Can’t help but roll my eyes at that article you shared @gigivillaceran

 

What’s wrong with that website? These actors worked their butts off to deliver an emotionally charged scene and all they can afford to do is write an article about how some found it hilarious?

With those stupid memes to boot

'Boyfriend' top 9.3% same time zone! Song Hye-kyo ♥ Park Bo-gum

360_20181218_1218p.jpg by Yoona reporter

 2019-01-24 07:36:49    

2019012401001790400139551.jpg
 

[Sports Chosun Il-ho] A day before the end, 'Boyfriend' rang the house properly. Song Hye Kyo - Park The soulful romance of Sword Sword makes it impossible to keep an eye on the end and hit the hearts of viewers. Whether the two will be happy endings is amplified at the end of the curiosity. 

The 'boyfriend' 15th viewership rate, which depicted romance until the end, accounted for 8.0% and 9.3% of the total number of pay-TV platforms, including cable, IPTV and satellite, (Paid platform nationwide basis / Nielsen Korea) On 

the 23rd TVN drama 'Boyfriend' (play Yoo Young-a / director Park Shin-woo / production studio dragon, the factory) 15 times, Suhyeon (Song Hye Kyo) I was able to tell my separation to the people of the night. 

On this day, Suhyun finally said farewell to Jinhyuk. Soohyun, who could not get out of the way easily, was saddened. However, Jinhyuk, who does not know the situation of Suhyun, was embarrassed by sudden separation. Jinhyuk remembers the promise with Suh Hyun, the minister of Cha Sung Hyun (Moon Sung Keun), and said, "I have to protect you by your side. However, Suhyun, who had already set his mind firmly for Jinhyuk, tore the hearts of those who let go of his hands. At the same time, Jinhyuk did not hide his shaking eyes as he realized that Suhyeon and Jinhyukmoo had met. Suhyun said, "My mother has given me the orangery, it is so simple and pretty, I can not live with the money, and I try to break it." So Jin-hyuk met Lee Sun-young (Gil Hyeyeon) and said, "I thought I was brought out of the high and deep castle of him, but when I heard him, he was stuck in the castle again. "Soo hyun was worried about him, and he raised interest whether the two people could overcome the crisis together. 

Since then both of us have had a hard time. Especially, Jinhyeok, who showed a solid appearance by keeping Suhyeon side of the masses, made a tear to the people who sat down on the streets in the farewell to Suhyeon. Furthermore, Suhyun decided to leave Korea for the completion of the Donghwa Hotel Cuban branch, and Jinhyeok, who received it, exploded with regret that he was writing a resignation letter for Suhyun.

However, in the ending, Jinhyeok realized the unforgettable love for Suhyeon and showed a change of heart and brought up the immersion. Jinhyeok, who used to write a letter of resignation, recalled the last time she was with Suhyun. After that, her sadness at separation came to disappear and she focused attention on Suhyun's side with a slightly different expression. Especially, at that time, when Canon variant song that Suhyun and Jinhyeok checked each other's heart was laid in background music, it made the expectation that such a foreboding might notice a change in the relationship between two people. So, I wondered if Jinhyeok, who was about to accept the separation from Suhyun, made a decision, and whether Jinhyeok could turn back Suhyeon's mind and Suhyeon could get away from the feeling of guilt that made him confess, ) It amplifies the curiosity about the last 'boyfriend' ending. 

On the other hand, attention is focused on the suggestion that the tough gambling between Suhyun family and Taekyung group will be concluded. Cha Jonghyun confessed that he had received illegal political funds from a parent company when he was re-elected by the National Assembly, and it was expected that Kim Chae-jang (Chae Hyeon-yeon) would rise to the top of his mind. Moreover, in the media, Kim predicted the possibility of recalling the prosecution. Meanwhile, Cha Jonghyun asked Suh Hyun-mo (the rest of the country) to testify about the corruption of the Taekyung group and focused attention on it. At the same time, Suhyun went to Suh Hyun-mo and told her a sincere word "mother and daughter," and the figure of Su-hyun who shed the tears of her return. I am curious as to what decision Mr. Su-hyun will make. 

As such, 'Boyfriend' made the viewer's eyes blue with the sad romance of Suhyun and Jinhyeok. Song Hye-kyo-Park's sad appearance of pouring tears from different places, especially after he broke up, tore up the tears of his audience's heart. Song Hye Kyo - Park Sword was once again proved why it is not possible to substitute 'melody craftsman'. 

After broadcasting, various SNS and online communities have said, "I was sad for the first time that I saw a parting of the drama and it was sad for me to break up," "Ambassador is charming and beautiful," "Song Hye Kyo is also a good luck," " "" My father is so wonderful, "" Suhyeon was so wonderful, "he said." Father, "" Today's legend, "and" I can not believe that the end is now too sad. " 

tvN 'Boyfriend' is an emotional melodrama that starts with an accidental meeting of Suhyeon, who never lived his chosen life, and free and clear soul devotion. Today (24th), the last meeting will be broadcast at 9:30 pm.
