Enjoy reading everyone's thoughts... I will elaborate on why the ending is good for me...   1.  It did not end with some drone zoomed out kiss in the Cuban Garden with sweeping romantic musi

When they say that the script is bland, i think in a way its true.Like what  pd-nim said  about the salsa.  BUT......with shk and pbg, they delivered more than what were asked for, adding details and adlibs here and there. 

They don't stick to what the script calls for. I believe this is only one of the many. 

I wonder about the kissing scenes:rolleyes:

Voting for Baeksang will end on Friday April 26, if not for KPop stars who also do dramas, our Encounter couple wins that poll as both are in 2nd place :sweatingbullets: at least it shows how much PBG and SHK are loved by the fans.

Just finished watching this drama. Such a beautiful and endearing love story, even though it was slow and moving at some point i didn't find myself hitting the ff button and was more focus on their conversation.  Can't seem to get it out of my system yet. Both leading actor and actress delivered a commendable performance and the other casts were amazing. Its my first time seeing PBG in a drama and i think he did an awesome job as Jin Hyuk and not to mention his charming smile. I really fell in love with his character here. Even though he was faced with the many obstacles in the relationship he was unperturbed and stood his ground. Will definitely watch out for his other dramas.

I am summarizing bits of an interview Encounter PD Park Shin Woo gave a Japanese magazine. It’s being translated from Japanese to Korean to English, so please excuse any mistakes or weird language syntax.

 

Thanks @stardustvoid ! 

 

- PD states that he had friends in common with the writer and that’s how he came about the script, at the time he was planning to work on a new movie but he had so many thoughts about the script that he was invited to come on board. 

 

- PD was drawn to the writer’s sensibility and the final clincher was a poem in the first script, the poem really moved him and he felt that he really wanted to work with the writer if he was the sort of person who got inspired into writing an entire drama on the basis of reading that piece of literature/poem. The PD regrets that this poem did not make the final cut in the drama however, the message behind the poem was “love is something that one should do NOW, while one can, without thinking too much about the reasoning”. This thought resonated with the PD. Further since pure romance dramas are hardly made these days he decided that this was a very fresh concept. 

 

- When asked if the script was inspired by Roman Holiday and Nottingh Hill, he replied that he didn’t think that the writer had any intention to do so. However the PD acknowledged the similarity in the story structure to the Roman Holiday. He added that JinHyuk’s postcard addressed to the Princess from Roman Holiday was not initially supposed to be in the episode, they were only going to show an image of Audrey on the postcard but he didn’t want to skirt around the topic so they decided to add it. In addition the scene in the taxi and their respective rooms was also added to bolster the mood of the episode. He was greatly inspired by  Roman Holiday and other classics, he admits to using many filming techniques from such movies. 

 

- when asked about the casting, the PD stated that he asked the writer about his choice and the writer stated that he had written the drama based on the characters without basing them on any actors. However when the crew got together everyone’s choice was PBG and SHK, it was so fortunate that the actors also agreed making it a dream casting. 

 

- PD says the lead pair are good human beings and very humble, he can see why they have been successful in their careers. They are extremely considerate of their surroundings, even though acting is a sensitive job and it’s possible that they are not able to care about others around them but he noticed that these two actors always paid attention to those around them and were quick to utter apologies. 

The PD was touched by Hye Kyo’s acting and experienced heart fluttering moments by Bogum’s acting. 

 

- PD says he is the type who likes to talk and discuss a lot with his actors, he said Kyo and PBG gave him a lot of great inputs. The staff got angry at times because their discussions would go on so long and there would be less time left for the actual shooting. Since there was many  tough emotional scenes for the two actors,  He told them to focus only on themselves, on their characters-  focus on expressing the emotion and leave the burden to the flow of the scene to him. There was also a lot of consideration between the two actors with discussions about which scenes were difficult for the other in terms of difficult lines or catching an emotion. 

 

- the reporter commented on the dance sequence with 100 dancers in the first episode and the PD says that during that scene he felt really sorry for Soo Hyun, she was the loneliest person and nobody could understand her loneliness. The PD wanted to offer her comfort in that scene. The 100 dancers were dancing while music played from a huge stage speaker, the two main male and female dancer danced separate from the rest of the dancers. It was an amazingly beatiful scene and he regrets not being able to capture even half of just how beautiful he was. He cannot get over how beautifully Hye Kyo conveyed Soo Hyun’s emotions and he would ask her how she did it, the PD added that the person who was most affected and excited during that scene was BG even though he wasn’t in that scene. He would shout things like “Director, how pretty” and was emotional with his reactions. 

 

- PD chose the Cuban song, he has a background in Latin/Spanish languages so he wanted to use a song that captured the mood and he felt that it was best suited. However he added that PBG and SHK’s favorite song was by Baek Ah Yeon - Always be with you. 

 

- PD chose to move the drama to Cuba, the original location was Grenada Spain. The conversation about the drive from Spain to Portugal was based on a real trip by the writer. The PD thought Spain and Europe wasn’t a fresh location, further when he imagined JH as a young man saving up money to travel to a foreign country he thought that his choice to choose to travel to a lesser known country Ike Cuba for Koreans would express the courage in JH’s personality which would in turn explain why he was so fearless in his pursuing of SH. Further he though that given JH and SH’s personalities, it would make more sense that unlike places in Europe with many Koreans who might bump into each other and interact with one another. Given how private the two are it would only make sense for them to approach each other more aggressively the way they did because they were in a place with no Koreans around. 

 

- PD made the decision to make SH wear the red dress in the first episode, it was initially a beige dress but he thought the color was important to signal to JH that she was open to being approached.
