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. :)

 

 

@stroppyse 

Audiences could watch CSH’s swollen eyes from ep.13 even CSH has not cried much yet because SHK’s crying scenes in ep.14 are various which ep.13-14 might film during similar time. 

Park Bo Gum went to be MC in Music Bank HK because the schedule has been planned before Encounter’s ending postponed for a week, he looked tired at the airport to promptly back to Korea for filming. 

 

Cheers for Park Bo Gum, Song Hye Kyo, Casts and Crews for hard working in the tight schedule in the freezing weather and high polluted air as in news.

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. 

@Josh Marquez

Could I hope for this scenario too?

 

I wanna watch CSH’s inner strength has been reinforced from KJH’s true love and CSH’s till CSH’s relived identity as Mr.Nam often mentioned.

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. 

@htk9207

I can rewatch Encounter this episode and that episode very often to explore and observe more hidden words, story, gesture, character development, and acting approach (definitely esp. KJH and CSH) which I can not catch all in 1st watching.

I love it when the camera focuses on their hands.

@leedonghaek

When I watched Encounter ep1 with KJH’s curl&long hairstyle, I can not imagine KJH in manly look esp. his hands with protective and strong power like this. 

 

==============

By the way, the camera case’s handwork mentioned in IG that he hope this camera case will not be a sad parting gift. 

(If translate app in IG did job correctly)

@redbeanbuns @NongpeeP

I loveeeee KJH's manly hands I could stare at them forever..too bad they already belong to CSH. Not that I'm complaining.. lol.

 

@leedonghaek

Your post made me notice KJH’s hands when he made the camera case with the couple ring shown in the scene, KJH’s hand looked much more fascinating and made us heart pounding even much more.

(let scroll IG right to see more pics)

 

Anyway, as you mentioned,

- KJH’s couple ring he wears to pair with CSH;

- KJH’s manly hands to hold CSH’s hands, embrace CSH tight, rub CSH’s hair when they hug or kiss;

- in IG, KJH’s hands are trying hard to make memorial camera case.

 

Even KJH’s hands belong to CSH but I typed this comments above with big smile to the screen like an idiot when I think about those scenes. 

 

Counting down to Encounter ep.15-16 might make me relieve finally I will know what KJH&CSH’s love lives end but I will definitely miss them.

By the way, Park Bo Gum has just arrived Incheon airport and he might direct to Encounter filming.

One of extras in Encounter posted in IG 3 min. ago that he is filming with Park Bo Gum, working without rest indeed. (Hard working to memorize Music Bank’s MC script and Encounter script with acting...umm fighto!)

 

For CSH’s role, I hope there are not many crying scenes to make her eyes too swollen again.

Seems we can’t post weibo pics directly, @applegirl2

K-fans made both fake IG and FB accounts for the 3 : Teddy Nam, csh and kjh.

Teddy Nam’s IG account name is the cutest! :lol:

TVN might like KJH with couple ring either. :wub: :kiss_wink:

 

KJH’s smile or diligent expression from making camera case is very charming.

 

I wanna watch the moment CSH sees this camera case.

It seems the camera case will play an important part in the next episodes.

 

I think the painting "the wedding" was given to SH   for Sh to put her head to the headless bride and to complete that incomplete marriage by having a complete marriage.

 

When Sh said....there are different means to part ways but you have to consider the feelings of others in doing that. ( not sure of the exact words)

When she found out the wrongdoings of Mr. Lee of PR dept., she didn't fired him. I guess her decision is not solely based on JH advise but she considers what will happen if he get fired. His family will suffer if the head of the family loose a job, and the emotional effect it will bring.His relocation is a way of parting ways but it will help him sort out things too. 

If she has a soft heart in parting with someone who did her wrong, why would she  be cold hearted and part ways with someone who did nothing but love her no matter what? I know They are of different reasons but both are means of parting ways. She will consider what will happen to JH if they break up more than what will happen to his family..

In real world if this happens, can they still work in the same company, being the boss and employee? Gossips are everywhere and its impossible for them not to cross path in a single day. If this situation forces Jh to resign, a job he had worked and waited for so long. How can he handle being heartbroken and jobless at the same time. This will not only affect him but his family as well. Then, the objective of Sh for the break up will be useless because the same thing happens even there is a break up. 

SH is wise and a considerate person, i don't think she will break Jh heart more than anyone.

Maybe i am right or maybe i am wrong, its just that for all the trials and obstacles that crossed their paths, they deserve a happy life together. And we who who put our heart, mind and time to them deserve a happy ending.

@roshzanna

I totally agreed with your comment. Could ScriptwriterNim and PDnim read this?

 

==============

 

By the way, TVN can write the heart fluttering word for KJH&CSH indeed.

 

Google Translate:

“I did not have a knee pillow but the tension was crazy ... “

So I'm back after spending few days off Soompi...
This thread surely is moving really fast! (And I regretted it so much cause we really don't have much time left to chat)

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

 


I do not know. I'll update you guys once I got more info of the song

but I'm still curious, what makes PBG happily dancing at the fans bts (the bookstore scene) :D?


I thought he was just being his goofy self and has nothing to do with the drama, no? *0*

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.

 

 

Oh I love that film! Plus I love seeing Hyekyo in Hanbok (Sad she doesn't have much sageuk work - she would've killed it in every aspects!)

 

=

 

Something that I wish that will happen from the grand finale week (I apologise for my shallow thought in advance - so I'll put them in spoilers tag)
 

Spoiler

I'll start with the obvious:

 

- A true, sensible happy ending for Soohyun x Jinhyuk Couple, of course (No dream sequence!)

 

- Soohyun keeps Donghwa Hotel BUT cut all ties with Taegyeong Group - not affiliated in any sense (OR split - but I guess Wooseok's shares will come in handy - It's about time to break free my goodness)


- Jinhyuk's mum will be able to untie her knot...
(From my POV, it has nothing to do with Soohyun's hotel business whether she gives up or not - it's the labels that will tag along for the rest of her life):
1) Daughter of a congressman / potential presidential candidate;
2) Ex-daughter-in-law of a chaebol family - Taegyeong Group;
3) Divorcee

4) CEO of Donghwa Hotel

- Congressman Cha exposing Taegyeong Group secrets? (Might not be enough time though)

 

- Only a short break up IF it ever happens

 

- Jinhyuk goes to Tea Lady / Mijin, finally realise his mum met up with Soohyun, thus her unusual 

 

- Probably that'll evoke an emotional explosive scene from Bogummie (there are so many parallel scenes in this drama, I won't be surprised given that Soohyun cried her heart out in E14) [And remember I posted an Instagram link of him filming spending time alone at the bus stop? Is there anything to do with it?]


- Jinhyuk hanging out with Congressman Cha (Would be fun if we see Soohyun is there too!)
 

- Once everything is sorted, I want Soohyun to be more initiative (Everytime when she initiates skinship omg it's so heart fluttering, and Jinhyuk's face is priceless!)


- I want them to have a place of their own, her apartment, or anywhere (but not living in Hongjaedong immediately - can they really refrain from showing PDA? LOL - not a good place to be right? and I don't want them to stop hahahahahaha)

 

- More lovey-dovey scenes! Don't keep them all for the Blu-ray! Be generous to us!
 

4

 

=

 

Least thing I want to see:
 

Spoiler

- Plot going in the wrong, unreasonable direction, obviously


- Goguma plot that goes on forever (e.g. that impending lawsuit / Jinhyuk's mother), then wrap things up in the last 10 minutes (NO!)

1

 

Just my two thoughtless cents as my brain is not functioning well... Please take it lightly T_T
