[Drama 2018-2019] Encounter / Boyfriend, 남자친구

Recommended Posts

I’d say the Morro Cabana kiss is sweet and passionate (considering what they both went through). It’s almost like a moment of surrender for CSH

 

@dukesa1122 not sure how it works, but probably akin to how cable shows in the US can show more explicit content. Probably has to do with the number of viewers it can reach?

I read your comment about moms in Encounter. 

In ep10, when KJH mentioned that the book he read is about missing no matter

- from mom to daughter; or

- from KJH to CSH .

CSH’s facial expression looked misery like reminded of her mom who has never had mom-daughter feelings (includes missing) at all. 

 

 

Count down another 2 hours for Encounter.

”Thank you so much for your lpve and Interest to Encounter”

Its better not to have a mother at all than to have someone like sh's mother. She looks like someone who can sell off her soul to the devil just for her ambition. I wonder where Sh's father met her. Doesn't he had a slightest hint or suspicions before he married her?  From the look of it,  jmo's strategy is not working. First, she confronted Jh, but only make jh and sh relationship strong. 2nd, meeting chairman kim... make it clear to her that she doesn't want sh to be her daughter in law and confronting jh is not right. The worse scenario i think will be, if jmo seeks ws help and they join forces.

Just saw the yt video of the press con in eng sub( by drama milk). Good to watch while waiting for tonight's ep.

Hello, chingus! Thread was on fire at 7:30 am KST. I couldn't post as RL was packed with work. I came back to thread and found that it has advanced by three pages of posts! Daebak!

 

This is related to the drama.

@NongpeeP Yes, CSH's facial expression revealed a certain pain, as she has never felt loved by her mother. On the other hand, JH mentioned in that scene his mother therefore I was thinking that this could be seen as an indication that his mother will fill that position. First, I had imagined that the mother would reject CSH. Yet, when she saw the article on her cellphone, she defended her son saying that he could date anyone. She wasn't that upset... 

 

Hands and feet (part 3)

 

After JH entered CSH's world (episode 4), he came in contact with director Choi and Chairman Kim. He had to hear terrible things. These painful experiences were shown in the episode 7 in flashbacks. Encounter Episode 7 JH flashback 1.pngEncounter Episode 7 JH flashback 2.pngEncounter Episode 7 JH flashback 3.png

Striking is that they are all in black and white, just like CSH's memories from the episode 1,

Spoiler

Encounter episode 1 Morro Cabana 3.pngEncounter episode 1 Morro Cabana 4.png

where she remembered her sad, painful and lifeless life. As you can see, JH went through the same things than CSH. People telling him how to behave and what to say, giving harsh comments. By using the same mean of filming, the director underlined the similarity between our main leads. Moreover, these black and white scenes symbolize CSH's world, the kingdom Taegyeong Group, the world JH had decided to enter in order to become a meaningful person to CSH. Now, he knows in what kind of world she has been living. This kingdom is huge and scary. 

 

But in this black and white world, how can the subjects survive, as there is no sunlight and no warmth at all? Well, I had already pointed out that CSH had found ways to keep her mind sane and to express herself: the paintings and the hands. But actually, she is not the only one who uses the hand as a way to express feelings and indirectly thoughts.

In order to endure everything, to bear the humiliation and the harsh treatment, all of them, even director Choi who is just a pawn, react the same way. They hide their true feelings by hiding behind a smile or an expressionless face and use their hands in order to release their anger

Spoiler

Encounter episode 7 Choi hands.png

With this taking, the hands of director Choi reveal two aspects: he is hiding one hand with the other. Actually, he is scared because Chairman Kim tells him that she discovered his disobedience and she saw his gesture as backstabbing (episode 7). With his two hands, director Choi is able to deceive Kim as his gesture underlines his obedience. However, we could interpret this gesture as a way to hide his fear... while the one hand is shaking, the other is able to hide and control the shaking.  

Now, you understand the "obsession" of this director with the hands. The hand is used in this cold world as a way to endure everything but at the same time to remain human. They are able to stay calm and overcome the terrible situation. Striking is that the director even decided to show the hands of minor characters like director Choi reinforcing the idea that in this chaebol world no one is actually really speechless. They might not speak in front of chairman Kim but they are still able to think on their own and feel.

@bebebisous33

looks like the hand expression is an effective means of expressing something in the chaebol world. I wonder if they die early of heart attack (sorry...the nurse in me is wondering). :crazy: It’s like a prison within yourself. You can’t freely express what you feel.

@dukesa1122 Well, JWS's father died early and I doubt that he was that old which proves that your assumption is correct. So their world, which I compared to a coffin once, is asphyxiating. I can't help associating their liking for brown and oblongs to buried coffins. They are actually buried alive. The only ones whose hands are not shown in a taking are JMO, JWS and Chairman Kim... this is no coincidence.
