3 Things To Look Forward To In The Last Episodes Of “Encounter”

3 Things To Look Forward To In The Last Episodes Of “Encounter

Jan 21, 2019
by D. S.kim

tvN’s “Encounter” only has two episodes left until the end, and audiences are going wild with guesses on how the drama will end.

Here are three things to look forward to in the last episodes of “Encounter.”


1. Will Soo Hyun and Jin Hyuk’s romance continue?

Attention pours in as to how the romance between Soo Hyun (Song Hye Kyo) and Jin Hyuk (Park Bo Gum) will end. In the latest episode, Soo Hyun is repeatedly reminded of Jin Hyuk’s mother who begged Soo Hyun to break up with her son. In addition, she finds out that Jin Hyuk’s brother got in a fight trying to defend her name, and she begins to think that she is destroying Jin Hyuk’s family and decides to break up with him.

On the other hand, Jin Hyuk does the complete opposite. He promises Soo Hyun’s father that he will keep her safe and asks Soo Hyun’s mother for her approval.

Just like that, Soo Hyun and Jin Hyuk currently have different ideas about their relationship. This is evident at the end of episode 14 as Jin Hyuk has a smile on his face and Soo Hyun has teary eyes. Jin Hyuk says, “Where is the end of your world, Soo Hyun? One thing for sure is that wherever that is, I’m there,” but Soo Hyun says, “Jin Hyuk, I’m breaking up with you now.”

2. Will Soo Hyun be able to keep her position as the CEO of Dong Hwa Hotel?

Kim Hwa Jin (Cha Hwa Yun), Soo Hyun’s ex-mother-in-law, wants to take away Dong Hwa Hotel from Soo Hyun to place her son Jung Woo Seok (Jang Seung Jo) as the hotel’s only CEO. In response, Soo Hyun shows her determination to keep her position. She also shows that she is done with Taegyeong Group for good by choosing not to attend the memorial of Jung Woo Suk’s father.

In addition, Soo Hyun’s father also tries to cut his ties with Taegyeong group in politics, enraging Kim Hwa Jin even more. Curiosity arises among viewers as to how Kim Hwa Jin will plan her vengeance on Soo Hyun’s family.

3. The conflicted relationship between Soo Hyun’s father and mother

Soo Hyun’s father has begun to fight for her daughter against the wishes of Soo Hyun’s  mother. On top of rejecting Kim Hwa Jin’s offer to help with the election, he joins forces with another political party. Furthermore, he asks Jin Hyuk to take care of Soo Hyun while he completes his task and tells Kim Sun Joo (Kim Hye Eun) and Nam Myung Sik (Go Chang Suk) that he will never be called a congressmen.

Soo Hyun’s mother is in shock to find out that her husband has gone against her wishes. As a result, her dream of becoming the first lady has come crumbling down. Viewers are curious to see if Soo Hyun’s parents will work things out in favor of her daughter.

The next episode of “Encounter” will air on January 23 at 9:30 p.m. KST.

Thanks for all the positive feedback on my last blog post on SHKs Vedi Vero campaign that I shared here!!!

I just wrote a review on two Sulwhasoo products and talked about Hye Kyo's role as the brand ambassador and muse. She is truly aspirational in many ways and Sulwhasoo products are the real deal. I hope this is a partnership that continues for a long time. I really wish they would use her image more on promotions in the US. I'm going to see if my PR contact can pass a message along to the brand.

3 Things We Loved & 2 Things We Hated About Episodes 13-14 of “Encounter”

3 Things We Loved & 2 Things We Hated About Episodes 13-14 of “Encounter”

Jan 21, 2019

We’re down to only a couple more episodes of “Encounter.” Can you believe it? We’ve gone on a wonderful romantic journey with Cha Soo Hyun (Song Hye Kyo) and Kim Jin Hyuk (Park Bo Gum), and we’re all the better for it. “Encounter” has been the perfect simple fairy-tale K-drama that was needed this winter season and it’s sad to think that it’s almost over! But before we wallow over the series almost ending, let’s take a look at what we loved and hated about episodes 13 and 14.

Warning: spoiler for episodes 13 and 14 below. 

1. LOVED: The simple and romantic proposal

This is an obvious one. Jin Hyuk casually comes over to Soo Hyun’s house and presents her with a bouquet from the magazine shoot he had earlier in the day. He tells her to hold it and says that she looks so pretty – and he means it. Then he proceeds to propose to her.


I knew that the proposal from Choi Jin Hyuk was going to be romantic and unique. Mainly because he’s so dreamy and we wouldn’t expect anything less than epic in terms of proposals. The way he presents marriage to Soo Hyun is simple, so subtle, but perfect.

2. LOVED: Cha Soo Hyun finally giving Director Choi Jin Chul what he deserves

The part where Cha Soo Hyun shows up to the board meeting unannounced is total boss goals. She owns the room, and the power she exudes is by far one of her best moments in the series. Although Cha Soo Hyun owns the hotel, she was far from being in control. There was always someone who was trying to throw her over and take advantage, which is why this scene is so epic. She is able to gain the power she never really had.




Droppin’ the mic.

3. HATED: Jin Hyuk’s mother asking Soo Hyun to break up with her son

Jin Hyuk’s mother has been apprehensive about her son’s relationship with CEO Cha from the beginning. She longs for her son to have a normal relationship where people won’t be constantly scrutinizing the relationship. So when she finally meets up with Soo Hyun and asks her to break up with him, we could all hear and feel her heart shatter into a million pieces.


Now this is a trope that has always and will continue to annoy me. I know Jin Hyuk’s mom has his best interest at heart, but if he’s happy with Soo Hyun, why meddle? It made me feel awful for Soo Hyun who really has had nothing to be happy about in her life until meeting Jin Hyuk. And to have that taken away from her is just heartbreaking.

4. LOVED: The bromance between P.O and Park Bo Gum

It’s no secret that these two have affections towards each other while filming on set. And it’s clear that they have a special bond when they have scenes together. It was adorable seeing them be playful and joking around in episode 14, especially considering how tense and serious it was! They provided the perfect comic relief.


5. HATED: The heartbreaking date

Soo Hyun begins to distance herself from Jin Hyuk, knowing she’s going to break up with him. Jin Hyuk is also suspicious of Soo Hyun’s cold shoulder but he acts like it’s nothing. So when Soo Hyun agrees to go on a date with Jin Hyuk, we know it’s not because she wants to, but because she wants to have one more good day with him before she parts ways.


The whole scene is so heartbreaking. Especially because Jin Hyuk is smiling like a puppy dog every time he’s with her. It’s hard to get the warm lovey-dovey feels on their date because we know that Soo Hyun is going to shatter his heart. I’m not looking forward to next week’s episodes.

Hey Soompiers, what was your favorite part from this past week’s episodes? Let me know in the comments below!

@dukesa1122 her account was growing at a much faster rate but her lack of posts since 2018 really slowed down her rate of followers. It should have easily crossed 9.5/9.6 right now and that’s a conservative estimate. 


She used to be the 3rd most female korean celebrity but now she is the 9th most followed female korean celebrity.

Woohooo go contact that PR @sugarbunnee!


Kyo now up to 9 Million followers in Instagram. I don’t know if this is a good thing or not :sweatingbullets:



Okay I mentioned her global influence, the success of Encounter and the fact that she's up to 9M on Insta in my note. I follow Sulwhasoo US on Insta and it's like they really should be leveraging her image more. I hope it gets back to the brand.

IA and  they should invite her to do a promotional activity in either NYC or LA.   


The person in charge of the sulwhasoo US account is a mess, the official US account follows korean artists who endorse products for a rival company. :crazy: Extremely unprofessional.


The other sulwhasoo accounts only follow Kyo, celebrities/influencers from their respective countries and other sulwhasoo accounts.

They need another person in charge for Sulwhasoo US. I dont know how effective Sulwhasoo is but I’ve been using Laneige water sleeping mask and water mist for years now and it totally works for my skin.

Who’s dreading for this drama to end just because we might not see Kyo again for i dont know how many years this time :bawling:


I was reading the first few pages of the Encounter thread and saw posts from Kyonatics that have said they will watch this drama but never see them post when the drama started airing. Hope they’re lurking here somewhere. :ph34r: 




And also these people who I know are Kyonatics:


Hello chingus!

@bohmi @jl08 @twtwb @khxy @wbishkjkbg hope you dont mind me tagging you guys :sweatingbullets: Dont kill me.

when her instagram was new, she posted alot of personal stuff that she is currently doing. After DOTS, she’s been deleting alot of pictures. Oh well ~~~ more endorsement offers of more followers.

Even before DOTS, Kyo deleted several pics. back, she really has habit of deleting pictures on her ig however her profile keeps growing and growing which is good thing but the bad one is she rarely updates, if she does only backdrop, no appearance of hers, rarely posts with her face:rolleyes::sweatingbullets:.....but I'm still thankful and respect her considering how very private she is!:ph34r:



Keep endorsements and followers coming for Kyo!:wub:
