Thank you dear writter for giving this beautiful love story a happy ending. Watching the finale tonight has helped me put back together the broken pieces of my heart that i felt has been shattered while watching helplessly as our two leads break up in Ep15 (cried my eyes out like i was really part of the break up, glad i was alone watching :D:D) That just shows how good of an actor both SHK & PBG are, superb portrayal of their characters as CSY & KJH. 

And thanks to everyone for sharing their insights in this thread, i’ve been ‘silently’ with you since day 1. :heart:

Boyfriend', highest rated 10% ... Time of high-class melo

Posted by Kim Ha Jin in: 2019/01/25 08:27:03 
[Ten Asia: Reporter Kim Ha-jin]
2019012508261440439-540x486.jpg

tvN 'boyfriend' broadcast screen capture. /TVN drama 'Boyfriend' (play Yoo Young-ae, director Park Shin-woo) lasted 24 days leaving a long longevity. Soo Hyun (Song Hye Kyo) and Jin Hyuk (Park Sword Sword) once again confirmed the love and finished with Happy Ending. 

According to Nielsen Korea on August 25, 'boyfriend' broadcasted on the 24th recorded an average of 8.7%, up 10%, on the pay-TV platform that integrated cable, IPTV and satellite.

The 'boyfriend' has beautifully and beautifully captured the romance of Song Hye Kyo and Park Sword, which started as an accidental meeting like a dream.

◆ Strong "strong power of authentic melo"

'Boyfriend' was not irritating to keep the melodic sensibility and 'charming melod' charm. The story focused on changing the emotions of the characters in the play, giving the audience a strong sound.

Jinhyuk who has never lived the life he has chosen and has lived with Suhyun and a free and clear soul. The romance, in which two people who lived a different life came together in an unfamiliar place called Cuba and felt favorable to each other, reunited in Korea and shared daily life and watering each other closely, made the audience immersed. 

Song Hye-kyo and Park Bo-gum acted deeply to enhance their immersion. Song Hye - kyo has lived a dull life. She met Jin - hyeok and expressed delicately the change of her feelings. Park is a liberty and positive personality, and he attracted the attention of a man with a straight and solid heart. The two men blend in with Suhyun and Jinhyeok, so that the audience has been immersed with a strong acting ability that expresses emotions into one's eyes, facial expressions, hand gestures and tone.

Here, the delicate and sensuous production unique to director Park Shin-woo has enthralled both eyes. Director Park maximized the emotions and scene atmosphere of the characters by utilizing color, background music, and camera composition, and also gained favor with directing melodies of analogue goods such as films, books, and black and white photographs. 

The first meeting in front of Cuba's sunset, Suhyun and Jinhyeok, Jinhyuk's stepping stone for Suhyeon, Suhyeon and Jinhyuk's reunion, the reunion of Suhyeon and Jinhyeok's kissing god who found the first meeting place in Cuba, The romance of the romance of the two people was also exciting.

◆ Preciousness of ordinary happiness

'Boyfriend' has talked about the importance of ordinary happiness in everyday life. Suhyun was born as a daughter of a politician and lived in the eyes of many people for the rest of his life, while Jin-hyeok is a person who has lived everyday in a happy and precious life. 'Boyfriend' puts the romance of those two people and conveys the message that ordinary happiness is never ordinary. 

In the final session, I walked the streets and walked the streets and enjoyed a simple date, including Suhyeon and Jinhyuk, and I am happy to be served with a sweet tangerine I have felt the importance of 'ordinary happiness' by capturing the figures of the people living in daily life from Jinhyeop father (Shin Jung Keun) and Jinhyeok mother.

"Best of all - no freaking time jump! Soo Hyun figured out that she couldn’t live without him and then they were together again. Done. No drawing the break up out over years. The time jump happened after they were together. AFTER. Take note writers!"

Agreed! I think I would've rolled my eyes so hard if there was a time jump before OTP got reunited although I'd still end up loving it coz I'm just that biased when it comes to SHK. Lol

Thanks for sharing the review and the gifs, @Jemrie

 

Same!

 

If the time jump happened during the break up then I would’ve raged so hard. Time jumps during break ups and the subsequent rushed reunion after are unbelievable for me because feelings change over time. That’s just how it works

 

Anyway, glad they used the time jump wisely here, oh thank you drama gods as this was my biggest fear. I have several questions tho before hibernating soon!

 

1. How long is Congressman Cha’s prison sentence?

 

More importantly...

2. Will we ever see that Santiago trip in our digital screens, not just our heads?!! (You’ve teased us TWICE, PD, TWICE :P)

 

Finally...

3. Will I ever get over the fact that my prediction for a Cuba ending in the garden of love didn’t happen?!! (Seriously, that was ny prediction since episode 1 LMAO)

A big thank you to the Encounter/Boyfriend team for setting new milestones to the Kdrama Romance genre, challenged and reinvented a few conventions, break a few molds and finally delivered this scrumptious satisfying ending that is simply best of its class.   Thank you to the boards for sharing your interesting thoughts, and glad the show ending managed to have sidestepped all the things we were worried about rather gracefully.  So rare I don't even feel cheated - rare from TVDrama these days.  Knowing the schedules of these productions, this is a superb and rare feat, well done to the team.

 

This exquisite little gem again reaffirming SHK as the queen of the genre/Kdrama and PBG as the millennial leading man, successfully breaking away from the pretty boy image - > Gorgeous Man with serious acting chops, clearly tries hard with so much sincerity and improvements with every episode, you can't help but want to cheer for him along the way and fall in love with him throughout the journey.  This series had this green grape from the beginning turning into this fine delicious champagne with a lovely and addictive aftertaste.  Whereas the ice queen with thorns turned into this adorable goofy marshmallow 'girlfriend' with a heart of gold by the end, and I can't get enough of them!!   The actors deserve all the recognition and accolades soon coming their way.   Their fantasy journey of 'selfless love conquers all' ultimately provide the much needed antidote and hope in the current climate of give and take.   The proposal scene was simply lovely and adorable, rather glad they didn't go for an overly sappy/predictable happy ending.    It lingers and left me with a satisfying smile (+ happy tears of course!) at the end, which will last for days/ weeks / months ... isn't that what we all hope for?  :blush:

@leedonghaek: As I've posted earlier, average nationwide rating was 8.678% peaking at 10%.

 

 

I meant the drama's average ratings. Not the ones for the final ep. 

Checked on Wiki but it's not updated yet.

Never mind..it's not that important. I was just curious. :sweat_smile:

Encounter 16 thoughts:

I liked, though not completely loved, the final episode.

What I loved:

JH's 'you can break up with me if you must, but I'll keep on loving you regardless.'

That SH made a conscious choice to put her own happiness above everything else.

JH+SH talking in banmal to each other.

 

Some bits felt emotionally off though... like JH's mum magically taking a 180 turn, or the execution of SH changing her mind; the neatness of it all... I suppose.


Still, Encounter remains the first romance-centric drama I’ve finished in years.

It may not be all that novel in terms of big narrative, but the execution made it feel fresh and shiny and new.

The writing was both subtle and clever. They knew exactly the story they wanted to tell and they told it to the best of their ability. It wasn’t perfect, but it was consistent in characterization, heartfelt and true to its core. The pacing was very assured and the acting exceptional. SH is by far my favorite role of SHK's, and ep.15 was probably the best acting I've ever seen from PBG.

And I have a new painting in my living room proving just how inspiring I found the art in this show. 

(hadn't painted in ages, so it felt really good to pick up a brush again).

I will remember this show fondly for a long time.

About the time jump I'm thankful the writer took pity on us and didn't let it happen during the break up. :D

 

Regarding the ending, trust me I really imagined it would end in the Cuba garden as well. Until I realized that just like in the movie Notting Hill, the playground ( it's a special bench inside a private garden in NH ) holds a special meaning for the couple. JinSoo met in the playground right after JH started working in DH hotel. It's the place SH went to when she was sad and missing him. They spent time there apart and together. So it was just befitting that when they finally reunited it was at the playground. The writer wonderfully showcased how ordinary happiness could be so special. Even the ending showed them simply walking together. Like any couple in love, doing ordinary stuff together. Cherishing the time they are together is what makes it so special. ❤

 

On a serious note I was anxious about the prison term as well. I read that it takes years.

Just finished watchinf Episode 15

 

At first I was trying to remember all good lines, in the end I just waved my hands and said  bolla!! Every line was wonderfully, heartfully, incredibly written. Simple yet so deep. All the actors acted how they should have acted. Even the supporting roles were on point :sweatingbullets: It’s unbelievable. Lol

 

I just love how persistent KJH is without being stalker-ish or needy. I love how he gave enough space without being pushy. I love how I can almost see CSH walls slowly being chipped away bit by bit again, until when she saw the shoes, you can almost see her walls collapsing down. Letting love in! Making happiness come in! By God! SHK nailed that part! I just wanna jump for joy and give her a big hug for nailing each of it!

 

And finally, the scene when he was walking up to KJH, and KJH is walking down the stairs, snow is falling down hard. CSH sees KJH first like when KJH saw CSH in episode 2. I love how desperate the kiss was and how sweet and so full of longing and meaning! Ahhhhhh~~~ :bawling:

 

I am so glad I stayed out of my ig tonight. It made me value this episode more!

 

Gosh. I feel like crying by just realizing I wouldnt be expecting this drama every Wed and Thur anymore :bawling:
