I think what SH had learned from WS in terms of breaking up with someone was to not do it in a way which left that person feeling hurt, humiliated and shamed by the world.

 

So, SH has a final date with JH where they do things that she remembers JH had said that he wanted them to do. She had been a bit skeptical at the time he mentioned it, especially because of the attention they would attract, but this time she did everything and was even publicly affectionate, holding hands, etc. Then her plan is to tell him that they will break up after they've had that date.

 

And, of course, I'm hoping that SH finds that she can't go through with it, or that JH won't accept it, so the break up part doesn't happen. Can't wait for ep 15 to see what direction they take it in.

Thank you for pointing this out. This is one of the reasons why I don’t think a break-up will happen. The more I analyse the episode.

 

You don’t just break-up with someone after giving him the perfect date. It will be too cruel, and SH is not like that. And what was the point of her being so affectionate with him in public if she was about to toss him aside afterwards, right? Regarding her audible thoughts in the end, it harks back to the ending scene in episode 4 where she was telling JH to stay away, in her head, but we all know it did not end up that way

 

So yeah, episde 15 will be interesting. Fingers and toes crossed!

Thanks very much @twtwb dai-gor and this thread’s sunbaenims.  It has been a great joy reading all the analyses and wonderful recaps of this beautiful modern fairytale.

 

Just delurking now to add that I think ep 14 presents to us the last demon opposing our pure and precious SooJin couple: Soohyun’s own mind.   Even the three witches ie the mother figures who can’t/don’t want to love Soohyun, are not as formidable as Soohyun’s personal cage of insecurities.  

 

She has endured years of neglect even prior to her marriage into Taegyeong, from both her Lady MacBeth of a mother and her loving but passive father.  So it is understandable that she really broke down when Jinhyuk’s mother, the only mum in the story whom she would most like approval and acceptance, repudiates her and became the embodiment of Soohyun’s greatest fears.  

 

Us viewers know realistically that JH’s mummy can be won over given time and patience.  Soojin already has JH’s papa and Jinmyung on their side, while Cha papa has given his blessing.  Soojin’s inner circle all approve wholeheartedly.  The only barrier left is Soohyun herself. 

 

My hope for ep 15 is that Soohyun truly awakens and fights her own demons.  We can’t rely on Jinhyuk to help (and he has helped plenty already although to no avail it seems - two proposals, couple rings, his resolution of the Cuban crisis et al) as this is Soohyun’s personal battle.  Anyway, it will be so so satisfying to see this princess rescue herself: before she can love another person she will first have to love herself.  

 

Having written all that, our Encounter writer-nim probably meant ep 14 to be completely different to my interpretation! 

 

Er...I’ll go back to lurking...but a Shoutout to @applegirl2 chingu first. :-D

Sorry if I'm repeating here. I can't keep up with all the posts :-)

This is the scene where mom confronted dad about merging the parties and withdrawing from the candidacy. The scene ended with dad saying "I need you to help me with something".

 

In an earlier episode, dad mentioned something about Mom getting illicit funds from Taegyeong. And now that he has withdrawn his candidacy for President, and settled personal affairs (leaving daughter in the good hands of KJH), I think he's about to drop a bombshell. I think he is asking mom to help him gather evidence (perhaps record a conversation with evil mother-in-law) then he will surrender to the authorities for using illicit funds. 

 

Just my guess.  What do you think?

Kim Jin Huyk once said "just because a person disappears does not mean love disappear". 

 

This stuck me and they have brought out this story twice in this series..in Ep 14 as well.. CSH may decide to disappear for a while..going abroad and remain incommunicado with JH !! While I really don't want this to happen..it is  highly probable!!

Guys just want to get your opinion regarding JH’s proposal to SH. Is he asking her to marry him or is it just asking her if there’s a possibility? I mean, he’s giving clues where he’s comfortable with her place and all. It’s just all too sudden, but I love it. It somehow tells us where they are headed. 

it was a proposal..twice on his knees! just not the usual lines and no ring:D

 And, there are also a couple of side stories that I would like to see some development on, namely Driver Nam and Team Leader Kim, plus possibly JM and HI.

I think JM and HI will pbly start when JH gets married!! Driver Nam is pining for Team Leader Kim.. I think these 2 will just start when the series ends and we will be left to our own imaginations :)

Official soundtrack album is here. Omo it really is ending :tears:

I checked on Yes24 and it will be released on Jan 29th (Consists of 23 tracks - 10 of them are songs, 13 of them are instrumental music / voice over)

 

Think they are going to release one last song for next week (or not and just release it along with this album) called "Good Night" by Seo Ji-an.. . It is on the tracklist... No sights of Bogummie though so I think it's just a fake rumour saying he will be involved

 

@stardustvoid You were partly right - the tweet said it is now open for advanced orders ^__^

(but won't get it till Jan 29th the official release date)

 

*secretly hope they will release a preview on Good Night so i can get my head around the lyrics*

I see. Thanks for the correction!

 

Good night? Hmm. Interesting title. Very apt for the finale I suppose

Thank you for your beautiful sharing. I really appreciate that you could put things in perspective so well.

 

I agree with all that you've pointed out and I love the above reminders. It's too apt because it brings us back to the most important consideration for a possible break up - it's precisely because of the above 2 reasons that she might be disrupting if she carries on with KJH. She can't bear to put him in a difficult position with his mum and she can't bear to be the one to bring pain to his family too. Having witnessed JM being hurt over their dating is enough for her. Do we want her to wait for more to happen to his family before his mum comes to her again? That'll be worse.

 

May I add one more:

More than anything else, CSH is the last person to want to break up with KJH because she loves him so much, enough to violate her contract and forego her dream - Donghwa Hotel. She put him first above anything else. She went to great trouble to get the camera for him because she knows it means a lot to him. She was concerned about him settling down in Sokcho and she spoke with HI to find out. She longs to be part of his family with all the happiness that she had witnessed. She felt her emptiness even more profoundly after that dinner when she went home. She wanted to experience the company and  warmth of a homemeal so she organised one at her home. She found a guy who matters more than anything else in her life. I doubt she wants a breakup at all.

 

She, of all people, would know what it's like to subject KJH's family to unfair judgement in the public glare. She should know the trauma that his family will face. I can say that she's an amazing person because she does not want to let them suffer because of her; because his family did not sign up for it and because she understands his mum is hurting a lot and where she's coming from. 

 

Not a word came out from her mouth during the fiasco. She sat there quietly sobbing. She could have objected and use their love as a negotiating tool to carry on with the relationship. She could say that she can't leave KJH or he can't leave her. She didn't. Because she could see his mum suffering already and it pains her so much. She must have felt shameful of her past and sorry that it had affected his mum and family so much. These all came after the happy meal she shared at their home. It was false hope after all.

@jl08

Sigh, I am sad with CSH's and really hope she can make her mind to be a happy person with KJH. Actually due to the social gap, KJH will have to endure for his own and his family's situation too.

RA. D’s Fairy Tale, Part 8 in Encounter’s OST

 

The lyrics is so spot on

 

@dukesa1122 The melody is striking in the positive vibe but the lyric is implicitly sad. 

 

2 hours ago, stroppyse said:

 

I think this is why I say that I see it as a positive development for them to be facing these questions in their relationship.  I think it's just something that SH has to decide that it's okay for her to feel this way for JH, and that she can is good for JH as JH has been good for her. That's one of the issues of being raised to always be dutiful. One doesn't necessarily place proper value on one's own desires outside of duty. Even the hotel is something that she took on because it was what she had, and now she feels pride in the hotel, but also a sense of duty.

 

With JH, she gets freedom and approval to be herself, but she's still somewhat figuring out who herself is. With JH, she's so different from the person that she was. In episode 14, she even mentions how she had been a picky eater, but with JH, she happily eats everything that he puts before her, and she discovers that she actually likes them.

 

As with JH's mother, I think what SH needs is time to feel more secure in her and JH's love, and also in her ability to protect their love, but also to fully realize that their love is not a matter of duty for her or for JH, but a matter of willing (and joyful) acceptance.

 

I think JH is a fantastic boyfriend, but I think he will also become an ever stronger partner to SH the more he understands what her world is like and that by dating her, he will have to manage that world somewhat. JH is growing in his ability and his knowledge as well. I think his understanding of what he's doing rather than a naive disregarding of it, plus his acceptance that he still wants to be there is what SH needs as well. She needs to understand that being with her isn't going to harm him, or at least, that it's not going to be just about harming him, but also helping him because they both love each other. I think for whatever reason, JH has gotten there first in terms of accepting not only how he feels, but that he's willing to do what he has to in order to be with her. SH now has to get to the same place that she's willing to do whatever it takes to be with JH.

 

As I've said, I'm thinking SH getting on her knees in front of JH's mother may sway her. JH's mother is a traditional woman, and while it'll horrify her to have SH on her knees in front of her, that may also impress her that SH is really serious about staying with her son. 

 

Anyway, the more I think about eps 13 and 14, the more respect I have about the way the relationship development is being shown. I'm really looking forward to the final episodes to see how they resolve the final issues, plus give us lots more coupley scenes so that we can say goodbye to our OTP knowing that they are happy in their world. :) 

@stroppyse

After I read several comments in this forum, I might be back to focus the process rather than the result again.

If CSH and KJH do the best as each of them's backgroud and thought allow to be, their love life when they are together could be enough to once in a life time they truly love.

@stroppyseI really hope that CSH will choose the best way to do the action with the least hurt to KJH and CSH herself.

Her Struggles and Their Mutual Love

I'm not saying that I would do the same if I were in her shoes (as I said in my previous post, she is an extraordinary person while I am a normal person). What I am trying to do is to give you (what I think) her perspectives so that you could understand her more, hopefully.
 

It is a bit far to say that Cha Soo Huyn repeatedly hurts Kim Jin Huyk’s feeling. They are two adults. Their love is a mutual love. Their decision to enter the relationship (or end the relationship) is a mutual decision. A relationship takes two, so does a break up (we don't even know how Kim Jin Huyk will react). Neither would like to hurt the other (that's the last thing that either of them would want to do). 

 

It is true that Kim Jin Huyk was hurt when Cha Soo Huyn suggested to "take time to think it over", but she was hurt, too (that is the only one instance in which she said so to Kim Jin Huyk, and then came to see and apologize to him shortly after.  By "repeatedly", I think you are referring to the scenario that might happen in the next episode). 

 

As Cha Soo Huyn said, "it would be sad to win, and hurtful to lose". 

 

Rather than saying one person hurts the other person, I would say they both share the love, the happiness and even the pain and the hurt in their decision and process to come together. That is the beauty of their love and that's what will certainly remain whatever ending that we have in episode 16. 

 

 

@twtwb

Whatever will be, will be. I always cheer for KJH&CSH.

As I mentioned I am not a fans of melodrama and I do not believe in love with social gap and age gap. Encounter change my mind to accept this true love with gaps and wanna see that this kind of love with gaps can really work.

@bubblechoco

"Good Night" song, could audiences hope for the good meaning to let CSH sleep tight without sleeping pill but human sleeping pill as KJH?

Hello everyone, first time wrote a comment here.

I keep thinking of what Soo-Hyun's dad tell  Jin-Hyuk that
His action will make Soo-Hyun's be alone. (During their dinner)

The exact words .... ==>>  Might end up all alone..

So my 2 cents is her dad n mom either get killed in an accident, (or something bad happen) and she is alone now in this world. Hence why she visits the hospital.

But,  Jin-Hyuk will keep his promise to her dad during dinner and take care of her.
 And the happy ending will happen.

Just my guess.  What do you think?

Why do i have this feeling that something will happen in the bookstore...

1. CSH might recrive a call/text either from KJH's mother or JMJ or even her father

2. Someone might come up to her

3. Or anything!!!! Like someone has been rushed to the hospital or something. Ahahahaha vague thoughts.

 

 

Just to veer away from what she is thinking and changes her mind or make her forget that she is comtemplating to part ways.

 

Arghhhhh anything can happen! And its too bad there's no preview!!!!

Now that i think about in a cool mind the breakup wont happen or jh will not let it happen. Jh promised csh dad that he will not leave her alone. And jh mom also may realize that how much they both will suffer without eachother. Jh will definitely be crushed into pieces.
