Recommended Posts

Just want to share the eng lyrics of their ost part 8 Ra.D - Fairytales

 

I kept seeing Jin hyuk teary eyes when hearing/reading those lyrics, along with his words to So hyun when he gave her his peony proposal

*a very very sad lyrics :tears:* (Trans credit to popgasa)

 

 

 

A fairy tale where you, whom I love

Comes to me and beautifully kisses me when I open the door

A fairy tale where I hold you and dance 

On a street when it’s just us two at night

 

Every day, I spent days like that with you In my fairy tale-like dreams

I didn’t want to open my eyes I don’t want to wake up and go back I want to hold you and dream a little longer

 

All of these stories seemed like they’d disappear If I open my eyes. Sometimes, I think about being where you’re not I get so afraid, I freeze up

That kind of day doesn’t exist for me

 

My days have fallen into you

In all my moments, you’re there, that hasn’t changed. I’ll leave the spot you used to be in, just as it is

 

My heart is completely filled with you 

There’s still so much I want to do for you 

I don’t want to wake up and go back I want to hold you and dream a little longer

 

All of these stories seemed like they’d disappear If I open my eyes. Sometimes, I think about being where you’re not I get so afraid, I freeze up

That kind of day doesn’t exist for me

 

My days have fallen into you

Day by day, though it hurts, to the point where my heart falls.

I’ll always remain here like this I don’t want to wake up and go back

 

I want to hold you and dream a little longer

All of these stories seemed like they’d disappear If I open my eyes.

 

Sometimes, I think about being where you’re not I get so afraid, I freeze up 

 

My days that have fallen into you

 

Are just a lonely fairy tale

K-DRAMA

Key Moments In Episode 14 Of “Encounter”

By abbyinhallyuland | January 19, 2019
 

PAINTING AN EMOTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL CHAPTER, EPISODE 14 OF ENCOUNTER MIGHT PUT VIEWERS ON SILENT TEARS BECAUSE OF ITS STUNNING POIGNANT CONFRONTATIONS.

Looking back on Song Hye Kyo’s roles in melodramas, in a way, this particular episode of Encounter will make her loyal fans validate why she has secured a niche in the genre.

Encounter
Viewers have all suffered and who knows even in the cusp of creating a drive for a movement to eliminate meddlesome-mothers, who want to decide what happiness is for their children after that episode 13 “please break up with my son” moment in Encounter.

So the honest talks that ensued after seem heading to the direction of resolving the love couple’s last standing road block.

Encounter
A STRONG FENCE FOR YOUR DAUGHTER

Carrying the weight of the conversation with Jin Hyuk’s mother, Soo Hyun loses herself in space. Her only friend and secretary senses something wrong since Soo Hyun’s meet up with Jin Hyuk’s mother, so she tries to ask Dae Chan if he knows something.

In contrast to the disheartening talk between Soo Hyun and Jin Hyuk’s mother, Congressman Cha meets the man loved by his daughter to give his full blessing to him.

 

Spoiler

 

Encounter

 

“THERE’S A LIMIT TO HOW MUCH WE CAN DREAM TOGETHER.”

On a weekend’s night, Mi Jin meets Soo Hyun at a cart bar to wallow in soju, and discusses her woes about her relationship with Jin Hyuk.

Refusing to reveal Jin Hyuk’s mother’s request, Soo Hyun shares her inhibitions if she suits her boyfriend’s family. Being a true friend to Soo Hyun, Mi Jin faintly scolds Soo Hyun for worrying about things when all that matters is the two of them being happy in love.

“IT’S YOUR FIRST TIME TO HAVE YOUR FIRST LOVE TOO.”

Reminding Soo Hyun how her man is not the type to be worried of things that they can work on together as a couple, Soo Hyun faintly utters how she is the only one bothered about it.In a breaking voice, Mi Jin stares at her best friend, and tells her that it is also her first time to love for the first time. Tears welled from Soo Hyun’s eyes matching the crying face of Mi Jin.

Soo Hyun burst into tears while desperately uttering how she does not want to break up with Jin Hyuk. Comforting her friend, she encourages her to be selfish, and goes for her one great love.

But Soo Hyun is resigned to the idea of how her complicated world just like what Jin Hyuk’s mother reiterated will only make the man she loves with all her heart suffers. Not knowing how to get past the agonizing emotions that drown her, Mi Jin reminds her that she can only be by her side, watching all the storms that will happen in her life. But Jin Hyuk will be a different story, since he will be there to embrace her, carry her, and be with her till the end.

Encounter

SOO HYUN’S SOLITUDE

Jin Hyuk drives Soo Hyun to the countryside to get some fresh air, and visits a gallery. A painting particularly catches Soo Hyun’s eyes, which gives the feel of a vague picture of a woman awash in suffocation.

Praising the neat design of employee’s welfare at Donghwa hotel, Jin Hyuk excitedly shares his vacation plans. He blabs about wanting to go for a vacation with her, but she remains listening.

Arriving at her empty place, Soo Hyun reaches for her bed to stare blankly at a glass window.

“SHE’S MORE THAN SOMEONE JUST PASSING BY.”

Finally getting a time to have a heart-to-heart talk with his mother, Jin Hyuk opens up about his mom’s thoughts on their relationship. Jin Hyuk’s mother honestly reveals how she is anxious of the different worlds they live in.

Looking at his mom’s eyes, Jin Hyuk tells her how he does not know love will hit him hard with Soo Hyun; when everything that led her to him is fated encounter between them. He tells his mother that he wishes for her to like the woman she loves, since she is a good person who has also made him a better person.

Encounter

“I’VE NEVER BEEN THIS HAPPY BEFORE IN MY LIFE.”

Soo Hyun finds herself meeting Ms. Lee for a tea time. Pouring out her thoughts about her relationship with Jin Hyuk after meeting his mother, Soo Hyun vulnerably shares her fears on giving up on the person who has become her world.

The next day, news breaks out about Congressman Cha’s merging with a political party, and stepping down of his initial presidency plans.

After work, on their way home, Jin Hyuk receives a call and rushes to Jin Myung’s aid, who engaged in a fight at a reunion meeting with his school friends. Badmouthing his hyung on his relationship with Soo Hyun, Jin Myung ends up in a police station because of the fight with his school mate.

Blaming herself for the reason of the fight, memories of what Jin Hyuk mother’s fears erupt in Soo Hyun’s thoughts. Meanwhile, the brothers rest in the neighborhood playground to talk about what happened.

Jin Hyuk praises his brother for doing a great job in protecting their family’s name. He tells Jin Myung to keep it as a secret from their parents.

Encounter

“I NOW KNOW HOW TO SAY GOODBYE.”

Soo Hyun gets a surprise visit from the woman used by Woo Suk to severe his marriage with her back then, which led to their divorce.

Finally learning Woo Suk’s sacrifice, Soo Hyun thanks him for protecting her in his own way, however, that cannot change anything anymore.

Finishing a gift he prepares for his girlfriend, Jin Hyuk calls Soo Hyun, and requests for a date the next day. Obliging to Jin Hyuk’s dream date, the two go out to eat at a crowded place, before moving to a book store to kill time.

While paying for the book Jin Hyuk bought for Soo Hyun, Jin Hyuk smiles. In his thoughts, he promises to go wherever Soo Hyun will be.

Soo Hyun, on the other side, stares back with tears, wanting to escape her eyes, as she silently says goodbye to him.

Encounter

ENCOUNTER EPISODE 14 AFTERTHOUGHTS

Something unsettling was already hinted in the last 10 minutes of this episode that I literally dreaded to see the dying minutes.

Just how am I emotionally affected by Jin Hyuk and Soo Hyun’s love story? My thoughts are running wild out of worry for them that I barely sleep. Yet my thoughts remain active in the past few days.

I am at a desperate point where I can be okay if Soo Hyun suddenly gets an amnesia so she can go out of her masochistic nature and relents to the idea of letting someone protect her. 

Encounter

There are a lot to process on how the finale episodes will conclude the story. This week is beautiful and painful. Encounter began on a magical note. That’s why if you are a faithful follower, you want to question why it had to thread on the reality biting pain that ensued after the refreshing romance which happened between the main leads.

Passing the halfway mark of the narrative, we know it would be hard. For that reason, we can only hope for that agonizing last stretch to be worth it.

Will Jin Hyuk have one last trust-me convincing moment to change Soo Hyun’s mind? Will we ever get to see a neat conflict resolution between Soo Hyun and Taegyeong?

Don’t miss Encounter’s finale on tvN and tvN Asia next week!

@thistle, I agree with your points about disagreeing without being disagreeable, but that's why I want you here on the thread with me. Because we can disagree without being disagreeable about it. :)

 

It is the strength and the curse of a popular thread that there can be outpourings of strong emotions, both love and hate, and sentiments that we may not even express in real life and in real situations. And, because the threads move so fast, any points made may be quickly buried in the outpourings, especially any opinions which are in the minority. And while I welcome all civilized thoughts, expressions, and opinions, I find you to be a reasonable, considerate voice in the maelstrom. Plus, the various analyses that are brought to the thread by various members are interesting and some are even fascinating, regardless of whether I may agree or not.

 

So, I totally understand why you may want to step away from the thread, but we are approaching the finale. So, if you have thoughts that you want to share about this drama, I would hope you would do so here.

 

I'm still firmly of the thought that JH and SH have already worked so hard to be together that they are not going to fail before the last few obstacles. Think of all the people who they've managed to convince to be on their side. Driver Nam, once he decided that JH was a good guy, totally approved, of course. But, Sec Jang was unhappy about SH seeing JH initially and even thought that perhaps SH should give WS another chance. SH's father who has gone from cautioning SH about how JH as someone who did not grow under the spotlight may not be able to handle the relationship to entrusting SH's care to JH so that he, the father, can do something which might leave SH isolated. JH's father was also iffy, but after discussing it with JH and meeting SH, he's decided to give them his whole-hearted support. Even HI who was against the relationship initially both from her unrequited crush on JH, but also from her concerns as his long time friend, has come around to seeing that JH and SH really love each other. It doesn't mean that her concerns for her friend is allayed completely, btw, just that she appreciates what they have together. DC and JM were always kind of on JH's side with regards to SH, but they went from teasing him to being supportive of them, and accepting SH as JH's girlfriend.

And, of course, SH and JH themselves love each other so much. So, in the midst of all this love, JH's mother was right in her concern, but once she's able to see all the love that SH and JH feel for each other, but that they are also supported in love, she'll come around. JH's mother truly loves JH after all, and even if her reactions are normal in the sense that she doesn't want her son to risk any censure and potential fallout, she won't be able to withstand JH and SH's sincerity.

 

This is my understanding of it thus far anyway.

 

@stroppyse

Encounter might be more than just a drama to be discussed in the same direction but due to realistic script created from unbelievable story, some audiences might understand one character, others might associate to another character, and vice versa for some episodes when each character has developed. 

 

I understand CSH's hesitation at the very beginning because I have similar standard of a girlfriend/a wife as CSH's. 

 

When I watched ep.13-14, I understand KJH's mom because I thought that in reality, the impact to the whole family members to be in public eyes from a son dates a divorced celebrity linked to chaebol family and her politician father is beyond acceptable. 

 

However, I did not understand CSH's fear in ep.14 untill I read your comment and @khxy's translation from somebody.

 

That's why I read this forum with observation of similar and different opinions from varied linkage because this forum's comments can dawn on me. 

 

As you mentioned about how KJH and CSH has done so determined to prove their true love and sincerity to closed people around them till those people's wall has been broken to accept KJH&CSH eg. CSH:Mr.Nam, Secretary Jang, CSH's dad and KJH:KJH's dad, friends, collegues, little brother, etc.

 

For KJH's mom, it might be a very beginning of KJH's attempt with gentle approach to suit his mom but with clear message to inform his crystal clear affirmation about CSH to his mom. 

 

By the way, Park Bo Gum came back immediately from Music Bank HK to further film Encounter. As audiences watched the scenes in ep.13-14, PBG&SHK have just filmed and promptly been on air.

Encounter production team might not have much stock even for the close to end as ep.15-16.

Just think about nearly end, it is very sad to have no more the drama beyond just drama as Encounter.

Agreed. That's the beauty of this drama in that one can empathize or at least sympathize with different characters. (Well, except for SH's mother and WS' mother; I think we can all agree that they are money-hungry, power-hungry evil women who care very little for their children as other than tools for furthering their own ambitions. :D

 

I think the point being made is that we may disagree, but keeping the discussions open and civil makes for more enjoyable experience, even though an outpouring of emotion may frequently be more cathartic. :)

Yes, that is much appreciated. I try to do the same.

Ouch. For the filming to be that tight can't be very good for the actors or the production crew. I hope they are all managing to stay healthy and in good spirits.

 

It is sad to see the end of Encounter and the OTP, but I will feel at ease knowing that JH and SH are carrying on in their fictional world somewhere, loving each other and carrying on. :)

 

Btw, an off-topic digression, so in the spoiler. I also discuss a major spoiler about the movie Hwang Jin Yi, for anyone who hasn't watched the film yet.

Spoiler

I just watched Hwang Jin Yi with SHK. First of all, SHK really is so gorgeous and unchanging. She looked a little younger in the movie, but she's still the same beautiful, ageless woman as she is now. Second, after the tragic ending in the film, I starting wanting a happy ending for this drama even more. In the film, the closing shot of SHK as HJY standing on a precipice letting the ashes of her dead love flow from her hands while she talks to him in VO was just so beautiful and sad, but so not the ending I want from this drama.

 

I realize that neither JH or SH will die to close out this drama, but still, I want a happy ending for the SH who actually resembles the HJY character in some ways. I didn't appreciate how much the characters were similar to each other until I actually watched the movie.

I know there’s like 70% that SH will break JH’s heart for episode 15 but there still 30% that I’m hoping for it to be the opposite. A part of me is hoping that SH will be brave enough to fight for JH and prove that their love is true and sincere. And maybe she’ll talk to JH’s mom and try to change her perspective regarding their relationship or JH could try changing his mom’s view. Really hoping for their happily ever after.

@thistle

hello there chingu. While I understand where you’re coming from, let me just say I think everyone of us here feel the same way especially if the other has a different opinion from what we think. We just have different reactions to them. Every thread of every forum is always like that. I am also sure that is the reason why this thread’s pages are flying. It is rich with different opinions from different members. That said, “disagreeing without beeing disagreeable” is a very nice line. Some might just type their thoughts into words strongly when they dont mean for it to go out that way. Thank you for silently going on hiatus but moreover thank you for always coming back :kiss_wink: 

 

@stroppyse

I dont know if I’ve thanked you enough for the translations you give. Your’s is more detailed and it always makes more sense. Haha! 

 

About Hwang Jin Yi

Spoiler

This isnt my favorite movie of SHK but her role here is a bit the same with Encounter. She was just too strong here. I agree, I hope it wouldnt give us the same ending because it was gloomy and heartbreaking.

In ep 14, Soo Hyun chanced upon a drawing with a headless bride titled ' The Wedding'

At the bookstore, when 2 of them are sitting down reading books, the advertisement behind them writes < The next face of the protagonist will be you>  < Supporting everyone's dreams>

Actually i really amazed by Encounter. We found new things to disscuss about each time..

 

So true, what I love about Encounter is that it is simply a love story. And it makes me deeply respect the writer and production team for making such a high quality and moving love story. What makes it even more meaningful to me is that the writer never resorted to using the usual situations just to make it dramatic such as the appearance of the hated truck of doom which would result to sudden amnesia. And so far no mention of any illness whatsoever. There's also no abduction, attempted murder, birth secrets, and surprisingly no cute childhood flashbacks showing they already knew each other since they were very young :-)

 

Even the exMIL, Mom and Director Choi were realistically portrayed. No over the top makjang elements, instead we get introduced to art paintings, books, and poetry.  One particular line taken from a book really stood out for me: "If the sea's job is to make waves, then my job is to think of you." (If I quote that wrong, my mistake)  

 

Even the opening and ending animations are beautiful and are subject to a lot of discussions and interpretation. It even has delightful epilogues. Which frankly makes me feel that the hotel staff (or was he the hotel manager?) is JinSoo's cupid/fairy godmother. 

 

Thus for me I love how the writer let the story unfold slowly.  With each step JH takes to be closer to SH, the deeper the connection I feel with their love story. And now that we're almost close to the end, I could imagine the happiness that is just within SH's reach. Their love for each other would also be their greatest support. Together they would be, through thick and thin. With their closest friends and family by their side, they would live as happily as they deserve. The end.

Y’all know what’s crazy? Encounter hasn’t been on air for 2 months but it’s already ending. How does it feel so long and at the same time so short? This drama really messed up my sense of time LOL

 

Anyway, I still want to see that day 10-day vacation is Spain! :unamused: :lol: This drama better comeback in June for a special episode *delulu mode*
