@bebebisous33

That tangyrine syrup did look like overly sweet. KJH’s mom seems like WS’s mom in terms of tradition and regularity in their status. Although this doesn’t present a pretty picture, if you think about it, it actually makes sense. 

 

WS’s mom prays tradition from the upper class, therefore she wants things from the upperclass, people from the upperclass and tend to manipulate his son the way upperclass people do.

 

KJH’s mom although inferior, loves to follow tradition as well. She wants things and does things at an average level because she knows that that is her place. She manipulated CSH at her level (not with money but with emotions)

 

Giving KJH’s mom the benefit of the doubt that she is ignorant and seemingly not very educated to realize what she did might be stretching it after looking at how miserable KJH and CSH are. I’m scared to think that if his mom just had money and power, she will be exactly act like WS’s mom.

I am not a fan of JH’s mum actions. And yes, I love @bebebisous33 analogy of the preserved tangerines as a symbol of devastating love of JH’s mum. Too sweet for one’s welfare.

 

I believe parents should not rush in to “save” their children from pain. Of course, I’m not talking about life threatening types. Pain (when not life threatening) has its purpose in life. As a parent, when we rush in to “save” our child, we deprive them of a chance to learn and grow from the process of handling pain. We also inadvertently made our child less tolerant of pain. So even if JH’s mum’s “rescuing” JH from pain by asking SH to break up is from a place of good intention, it is a no no for me. That’s why in my earlier post I said her behaviour was impulsive.

 

I do see hope for her though. She had shown that she was conflicted. She was drinking on her own. In the preview, she mentioned she will sow what she reap. She was crying when she said that. Perhaps she knew what she had done was wrong and the negative effects her actions carried. That’s good. To me, that meant that she wasn’t ok with what she did. She felt guilty. Compare this with WS’s mum and SH’s mum. They never express guilt or pain for their behaviour.

 

Hopefully, JH’s mum will right what had done.

If they filmed in Cuba for a month, there must be more scenes to be shown in that setting. 

 

 

So far we have almost 60 mins in episode 1, 20 mins of episode 10, and 4 mins in ep 11 of Cuba.

From all the scenes in Cuba, we got a lot of footage or fancam (csh and kjh ep 1 in red dress and white shirt, csh-kjh ep 11 in blue shirts in the car)

The only scenes i have not yet seen fancam or footage, were the one in the garden and Cuba airport. 

Other than the drama opening, initially we have no idea, where and why KJH was seen laying in stairs.

Soo, still hoping for Cuba scene in Garden, hopefully a happy lovey-dovey scenes.

 

If clouds are blocking the sun, remember there will always be silving linings..

Oh Gosh!

 

Another BTS! I have to scrub my eyes with PBG being PBG. He’s 360 degrees different from KJH but he surely rocks the role and more!

 

@ 1:57 of the video. You dont know how much it means to me to see Kyo BTS. We rarely see her true her personality. Seeing her in her natural form (not in character) is always a happy pill! :heart:

 

P.S. I dont know why fonts go small and large like that. :blink:

PBG being his cheerful self is always fun to watch..

Spoiler

If you got time, try to watch BG in Youth over Flower and Hyori's Bed n Breakfast 2 (i think YOF is available in VIU, while HBB 2 in Netflix)

he's absolutely have different nature to KJH yet the same manners.. so without a doubt his acting skill in Encounter is outstanding

 

And, Jang Seung-Jo is undeniably handsome :lol:. Not fond with his character, but he nailed it..

@NongpeeP Well, JH's mother uses her "weak constitution" and "gentle, sweet manners" in order to have her family focused on her. That way she is able to get her ways. Her words towards CSH were actually rude in my opinion:

- First, she expected CSH to be upset. She never mentioned the word "pain, suffer" or something similar. She implied that CSH's pride had been hurt or CSH considered herself as superior. 

- Secondly,  she made an allusion that CSH had never intended to marry JH. "Dating doesn't lead to marriage".

- Thirdly, she claimed that CSH and JH belonged to two different worlds. This showed that she had no idea about CSH and had huge prejudice about her. Moreover, she used this as an excuse that they couldn't be together.

The mother is as selfish as the other mothers in this drama. 

@bebebisous33

Yes, KJH’s mom is as you mentioned, her act seems polite but her words is strong&rude and reflected her own safe zone she does not let her son be. 

Her sneaking procedure by sending letter to Orange syrup via Snail store man is scary. 

 

That’s why I mentioned arguing might not solve her problem but let her know it is too late to beg for break up and be back to her normality before KJH met CSH, all incidents have already occurred esp. KJH’s heart to CSH and his new side’s being if he forced to break up with her. KJH’s mom has to choose to give blessing to KJH&CSH or challenge to receive unexpected result which could shaken her safe zone even worse.

@dukesa1122

Mom’s love and overprotection is classic, it is very hard to fight when  this is “mom”.

Anyway, we shall see how a son handle his mom to suit her style.

@luvhollandlop Mom will learn the effect of her deed when she can not protect her son from challenging change in his love life, her fear of her son’s effect will teach her to still reject or have to accept.

@rosiepeonie188

Park Bo Gum at 25 years old is cheerful and lively as his age with positive vibes as he is BUT when camera started, he can create Kim Jin Hyuk on screen perfectly.

 
Plus, Park Bo Gum’s teenage & lively looks when he was going to do MCs for MAMA and Music Bank make me realize, oh, he is not as same as the Kim Jin Hyuk.

 

Park Bo Gum’s acting is amazing esp. the recent preview, audiences can feel how KJH is crying with unbelievably painful hurt from collapsed world without CSH which he has never reserved space in his heart to let CSH go.

Spoiler

Yes, I have watched Youth Over the Flower in Iceland (PBG is a nice makbae who shared his feeling like no pictures with his mom and he also is thankful for a small mercies) and Hyori Home Stay 2 (PBG is a fanboy who joined because of Hyori but he did the best for his job there with determined&vigorous spirit)

'Boyfriend' directed analog emotion .. caught the house theater

 

[헤럴드POP=고명진 기자

 

'Boyfriend' uses analogue props in the right place to add a force to the emotional line that rages like a storm and moistens the sensuality of the modern people.

TVN 'Boyfriend' (play Yoo Young-ae / director Park Shin-woo / production studio dragon, Bong-shin factory), making poetical dialogue with delicate directing and sensitivity.

 Among them, analogue props that add sensitivity to the scene attract the audience's feelings and keep viewers out of the picture.

 

 

# film

The first analog props is film. 'Boyfriend' focuses attention on directing Suhyeon (Song Hye Kyo) and Jin Hyeok (박 boogungmin), which visualize each other at the same time in the movie, in the form of film rather than simple split cuts.

 

In the first session, Suhyeon and Jinhyeok returned to their quarters after a casual meeting, and they looked at each other and smiled.

 

In the seventh session, the memories of Suhyeon and Jinhyuk, The two of them had a look on their face, so they could not take their eyes off.

 

In the 5th session, Suhyeon and Jinhyeok were born again in front of the painting "Where and what to see again", and the memories of the two people were rewritten into the film composition and attracted attention. Especially, before Suhyeon and Jinhyeok had their first meeting in Cuba, there was already a picture of how they walked in Korea.

 

 

# Books

The second analog props are books. 'Boyfriend' is adding a sensitivity to the direction of writing written on the figure of Suhyeon and Jinhyeok like a page of a book containing an illustration. Three times, Jinhyeok confessed that he had come to realize his mind toward Suhyun and wanted to visit Suhyun straight away. At this time, I do not want to go to the top of Suhyeon, full of surprises and surprises, but there is a way to go. There is a person who wants to meet while not meeting. If not, there is something I want to do more. It is life and longing. It was just you. "

 

Also, in the 9th meeting, a reunion at the end of a sad breakup and a hot hug in front of the sea over the figure of Suhyeon and Jinhyeok, "It was my job to think about you if the wave was a sea thing" .

 

Moreover, 'boyfriend' is quoting the phrase of the book in addition to the directing part of the book, and the books which fit the situation of Suhyun and Jinhyuk are introduced and double the lyrical feeling.

 

 

# Black & White Photography & Video

The third analog props are black and white pictures and black and white pictures. In 'Boyfriend', the pictures taken by Suhyeon and Jinhyeok are expressed in black and white, not in a toxic color. Sohyeon and Jinhyeok are carrying each other with black and white photographs, as though they have lived a very different life, but they represent the hearts of two people looking at each other without wearing sunglasses. It captures the attention of viewers as a factor that makes the two people feel sincerely focused on each other, while excluding the gaze and situation around them.

 

In addition to this, the life of Suhyun, who was breathtaking in the first episode, started as a silent movie in black and white, and increased her immersion.

 

In addition, the first meeting with Jin Hyeok in Cuba Moroccanya, the past of Suhyun, looking at the sunset, flows in black and white, and a smile is appearing on his face, which is sunk in the sunlight. I made my life look forward too.

As such, 'boyfriend' is making the audience feel emotionally immersed by directing analog props between the plays.

 

In the remaining two sessions, expectations for stimulating emotions with some dramas and props are on the rise.

I do understand where she is coming from, 

I agree with what @lolly84 have said earlier that she has a limited mind,

Her life only evolves around her husband, her two deary sons, the fruit stall, and housework... it was all the same everyday

But ever since Soohyun came into Jinhyuk's life, it has shaken up their lives (well the drama did not depict much, but I am totally fine with that really) and she couldn't take it

 

From Soohyun's POV,

I think she is scared, nervous from the moment she decided to pay Jinhyuk's home for a visit [Mood mode: 50% / 50%]

As soon as she stepped into his home, everyone was very welcoming, even his mum (uneasy, but still in a friendly mode) [Mood mode: 65%+]

She thought she has been kind of accepted by the family...

and that two proposal speech from Jinhyuk do actually soothe her mind bit by bit (still not optimistic i know, but at least her reaction was way better in the 2nd one)

and that orange preserve......... BOOM!

It was Mijin who handed this to her (and not Jinhyuk!) [Mood mode drops back to 50%]

She looked at the jar thinking........... until she opened and read the note [Mood mode: 40%]

When she saw Yeonja's face at the cafe................. [Mood mode: 30%]

And she slammed the door so hard (e.g. stop seeing my son, marriage was never a question right) to her............ [Mood mode: 5%]

 

That last 5% had gone disappeared after the punching incident of Jinmyung

I still haven't watch E14, but I knew it from the recaps

 

=

 

That fried chicken scene with her son... the dialogue...

she slammed another door right in front of her son "Mother will not change"

 

I understand this is her way of "protecting" her son and her family,
but as a viewer, I do not like it, I cannot like it

and trust me, I'm not launching a vile personal attack on Yeonja, this is not what I do,

but I just don't prefer, or like, the way she handles this (But given her background, it is understandable)
 

=

 

OK, I don't even know what I'm trying to say here

*heads back to bed, for real this time*

@bubblechoco

Thank you so much for your BTS translation, Park Bo Gum is cheerful in a way that is different from KJH.

I wanna watch more BTS of PBG and SHK together more but BTS crews might keep our imagination of KJH&CSH on screen.

 

I understand what KJH’s mom thought and attempted to do but she will realize this is real world with interactions among people beyond her expectation including KJH&CSH’s relationship and KJH’s development after meeting CSH, reversing world to nothing happen by asking just CSH is impossible.

 

In addition to KJH’s mom’s lessons learned, I wanna let CSH change too because KJH&CSH’s obstacles might come more and more, CSH should learn to embrace her love with KJH tight and will not give up by breaking up anymore.

 

 CSH’s possessive sense for KJH should crucially aroused to let CSH realize if CSH asks to take a break or break up, other women can approach him too:

no matter HI (I wanna let CSH know HI’s deep&serious secret admirer to KJH.), colleagues, or newcomers, outsiders or even think about extreme case with blind date forcefully set by  his mom or his relatives. 

 

CSH might be more proactive and initiative with KJH from potentially jealousy.

CSH should not take it for granted that there will be no other women in his life, unrequited first love does not mean no more love.

 

KJH is not a deadwood, he is still young, good looking, and nice personality. B)

 

CSH might have to choose to fight with her sufficated feeling to keep KJH (against KJH’s mom) or let KJH go. (Other women has a chance)

 

In addition to CSH’s mentioning she learnt how to separate from her ex-husband, she should learn another observatiom from him. CSH’s ex-husband’s possessive sense has been aroused after 4 years divorce due to KJH’s appearance.:phew:

 

Mom’s over-protection might be scary and annoying but women’s jealousy&possesion could be very powerful too.

Encounter: still filming till even the on-air day.

Soohyun in her office with Wooseok

(E14)

 

Soohyun, trying to fill herself with emotions before filming - Scene where she talked with Wooseok about the correct way of separation - 

After the filming is done, Hyekyo said "We are friends! Friends with same age!" Jang Seungjo: "Looks like we only say hello and that's it!"

Hyekyo: "Hello? And then the drama is ending. Let's meet again in the next project in a friendly way" Jang Seungjo: "Sure" Staff: "As brother & sister?" Hyekyo: "Brother & sister?" Jang Seungjo: "That sounds good"

- and then back to filming again- I'm translating this while I'm half asleep~~~~ Didn't even bother to check any grammatical or spelling mistakes  Please read it lightly 

 

-----

 

THANK YOU!! 

i guess the scene of JWS and CSH above was the last scene of them together..

Then let's give our OTP more  happy-lovey-dovey screen time
