@ImAryaStark yes, you can buy it online. You can check the website of youngpoong bookstore and kyobo bookstore, though both are in Seoul.  I see you as i see flowers can be bought through ebay and another one i forgot the name. Check google.  Though more expensive.

 

 

Thank you. I'm still deciding whether I'll spend money on books I can't read hehehe. But I want to. :sweatingbullets:

I put this drama on hold months ago at episode 13 because I just couldn’t bear to watch CSH get hurt by that selfish cowardly woman that is KJH’s mother. I always have a problem with an interested party going to the other party instead of directly to the person they claim they’re trying to protect. Why didn’t she ask KJH directly to break up with CSH instead of going behind his back and hurt someone else’s precious child? Quite frankly, regardless of whether her concern is valid or not, she should not have approached CSH in this way.

That was a problem for me, too.  But the thing that was even worse was some of the posting that went on here about it--people were being really vile and ugly about his mom.  Completely finished me for this drama and drove me away from this forum for awhile.  I still haven't finished it; possibly never will.  And I'm a lot less trusting about what I post now.

 

I can't understand fully why his mother would do what she did but, given how some other moms have behaved in KDramas, I suspect it's a cultural thing that isn't familiar to me--like she was being a tiger mom protecting her cub or something.  (All I know is that my mother sure as heck never acted that protective--she had a tendency to watch and laugh while I messed up my life.)  There's an "over the top" quality in KDramas to some family matters (like not accepting people who are adopted or who have had family tragedies) or to grief (lots of screaming and howling there).  I can only assume that it's mirroring life.  But, honestly, it's nothing like I've ever known, so I marked down his mom's stupid move as something folks in Korea would find understandable even if a Westerner like me doesn't get it.

About Kim Jin Hyuk's mom... 

 

That's the Asian culture. Parents interference with their children's relationships are very much alive up to this day and age.  

 

Consciousness on the difference in social status is also very much alive in Asia. 

 

On how they will interfere, that largely depends on the character of the person. On this drama, writer made Jin Hyuk's mom approach Soo Hyun  instead of talking to him. It happens a lot of times. I have a high school friend in personal life who had a Korean ex boyfriend. The guy was studying in our country and became her classmate. They were in love. We often went out together with our group. After college, they talked about marriage. They suddenly broke up. My friend recently opened up to me around last year the reason why, that it was because the mom of her bf talked to her and told her how he would not be given share of family business if he marries her. Sounds like a Kdrama but it was true in real life.

@thistle, yes in Asian drama, especially Korean drama, moms are very officious in their children’s lives. I accept that but what I could not accept is the mother going to CSH. It’s plain cowardly. And she knew what she did was wrong because her conscience bothered her to no end until she was finally going to confess it to KJH. In the first place, why not ask KJH to end the relationship? She didn’t want to bravely face him so she went behind his back and tried to make CSH be the bad guy. She did come around in the end but not before a lot of persons were hurt by her actions.

Dear Encounter family, please do not forget to tweet/send questions regarding the drama to Anne Curtis-Smith on either her Insta or Twitter . She will be hosting Bogum’s fanmeeting in the Philippines on the 22nd of this month. Since she is an actual fan of the drama and our lead pair, it’s more likely that she will understand our questions more than previous MCs who just follow the script.

 

This could be our last golden opportunity to get questions answered about the drama, so please do contribute with questions! 

 

Thank you to all on this thread.

@roshzanna The port in Episode 9 is 심곡항 (Simgok)
Gangdong-myeon, Gangneung
https://maps.app.goo.gl/5X7F2FZAVjQa5PMB6

The coffee shop is 37.705010,129.015639
https://goo.gl/maps/vsoATnfD8AqccQ9w6

We went there with the bus 112 from Gangneung Station. Bus 112 has 2 hours interval so you must check, when it starts. From Simgok back to Gangneung also 2 hours Interval. 

From Gangneung Station to Beach coffee you can also take Bus 111, 111-1, 113 but to Simgok Port just the 112. 

Sorry but I deleted the bus schedule already and can't remember where I got off the bus.:dissapointed:

The metasequoia alley is in Ilsan Lake Park. The Geolocation is 37.658769, 126.762523. We went there with the bus M7106 from Seoul Station to Ilsan Lake Park.

I recommend you to use the Kakao Map. It works wonderful. Google Maps doesn't work well in Korea.

I’m screaming! Did Bogum just visit the very spot that inspired the little prince and the Fox painting in the drama on his bday trip ?

If I am not mistaken I think the actual photo was taken a day before his birthday. 

 

Sorry to bother but please explain more what is this? It seems nobody other than you notice this one. What is that spot? :sweatingbullets:

Remember the little prince painting in CSH’s room?

58898203-725-F-4-F2-F-961-F-6-A6-F19-FD7

It was inspired by this actual sculpture in Busan. 

3-A52-F2-CA-CE64-4-A88-80-F1-156-C64-C0-

 

You can see the same big white building in Bogum’s post thanking everyone for celebrating his birthday. 

CD82-DA84-B866-4-C8-C-9-B20-D541-D30-A42

 

@stardustvoid I think now I’m pretty sure that it’s the same place.
