[Drama 2018-2019] Encounter / Boyfriend, 남자친구


Recommended Posts

Newcomer here.

The drama is not what you see, is what you get kind of thing. Yes, we need to read between the lines. If  u  only use your eyes and ears, it will lead u on dead one. This calls for a lot of thinking and emotions.

When KH first saw CH, walking in Cuba, its the start of his feelings. But when he learned that she is the CEO, its a setback for him. But with Mr. Nam's intervention and the radio's requested song, he knew he has

 

to  start somewhere. 

By the way, He just said i miss you, not i love you.

K-DRAMA

3 Key Moments In Park Bo Gum & Song Hye Kyo’s “Encounter” Episode 3

By abbyinhallyuland | December 6, 2018
 

ZOOMING IN TO A FAST-PACED NARRATION, TVN’S ENCOUNTERBEGINS TO UNRAVEL THE LOOMING CONFLICT TO BE TACKLED BY SOO HYUN AND JIN HYUK.

Park Bo Gum and Song Hye Kyo continue the interesting blend of their pairing, with arresting portrayals of their characters in Encounter.

Encounter

After that woe-inducing premiere week cliff-hanger, our optimistic hero worries about the trouble caused by the ramyun rest stop date.

Meanwhile, hotel CEO Cha Soo Hyun feels exactly the same way for Kang Jin Hyuk.

1. ARTICLE III SECTION IV OF SOO HYUN’S DIVORCE AGREEMENT

Encounter

Following the aftermath of the supposed dating scandal of Soo Hyun, her ex-mother-monster-in-law barged in to her office for explanation. 

Apparently, a stipulation in the divorce Soo Hyun agreed to, includes refraining her to do something inappropriate that would disgrace the family.

Per ex-mom-in-law’s rule, Soo Hyun broke it owing to the incident with Jin Hyuk. Previously, the former in-laws (Soo Hyun’s mom and ex-mom-in-law) met to discuss marrying off their divorced children again. Consequently, a dating scandal would not look good to support their evil plan.

2. YEARNING

EncounterEncounter

Soo Hyun goes to Seokcho to stake out on an artist, who suddenly reverted the initial agreement for an exhibit set to be launched by her company. Behind this act of course is ex-mom-in-law. Knowing who can cheer up his friend’s daughter, Mr. Nam aka Soo Hyun’s driver, brings Jin Hyuk with him to where she is, and leaves intentionally for the two to spend time together.

Jin Hyuk gives Soo Hyun a book with a photograph of her. They later play in a nearby beach just like worry-free children.

Soo Hyun’s secretary-friend lectures ex-husband-in-law not to meddle on Soo Hyun’s affairs if he cannot protect her. Bingo. 

At night, Soo Hyun reads through Jin Hyuk’s recommended poetry; one which exactly defines her life:

There are roads I want to take when I am told not to.
There are people I want to see when we agreed not to.
There are things I want to do more when I am told not to.
That is life and yearning.
That is you.

3. WHAT SHOULD OUR RELATIONSHIP BE LIKE?

EncounterEncounterEncounter

A melody from his radio startled Jin Hyuk who is physically exhausted from the weekend trip. He rushes to drive back where Soo Hyun is to ask her to join him for a quick bite.

Wanting to relieve himself of building emotions he can no longer contain, he throws in an unexpected question to Soo Hyun: “What should our relationship be like?”

Soo Hyun attempts to evade it, but Jin Hyuk pushes to declare how he went all the way back to where she is, just to say that he misses her and wants to see her.

ENCOUNTER EPISODE 3 AFTERTHOUGHTS

I fear for Soo Hyun and Jin Hyuk’s romance if it will happen really soon — like tonight — because former mom-in-law looks really scary to be honest.

But then, I have to give it to Jin Hyuk for being brave, because that is something that Soo Hyun cannot summon out of her sacrificial nature.

With ex-husband-in-law pictured to have genuine feelings for his ex-wife, the dice has been rolled for an emotional journey to be traversed by Soo Hyun and Jin Hyuk in achieving their own romance.

Encounter

Encounter airs on tvN and tvN Asia. Fans can also watch it on VIU.

Even the props have stories to tell.

How can you not fall in love even with them?

 

My faves: the souvenirs from Cuba and first night in Seoul in KJH's room (camera, high-heeled shoes, and that adorable white angel-owl)*, and the paintings in CSH's room.

 

 And those animated intros to the episode. Wonderful art!

I think after Love in the Moonlight, he decided to finish his Bachelor's Degree and did not accept any project.  

@anya

To answer your question, if anything PBG is very much like his 1988 character.

Clumsy, talks less but is very very mature and observant. The only difference is that he is cheerful when taek wasn't as cheerful. or maybe add clumsy in current character's trait portfolio.

 

And again, he prioritized his education. I think he completed recently - junish..

I’m so sure at this rate with everything the drama touches creating such a buzz the book sales will see an increase. 

 

Edit - does someone have a really dependable streaming link that they know of?

 

Vedi Vero stores in Korea have been promoting the drama.

This simple and honest man is not very simple :P

 

I think at times he calculates his words well enough.

 

After the potato rice cake scene where he says  "this is our day 1".. that was such obvious teasing from his side, which then also says volume about his "b'ful woman" type of comments. They don't just come out automatically from his mouth.. its like he is consciously pursuing her and utters them for that pull-push effect. Apologize but then repeat it to mean he ain't exactly just being nice to her :P

Last Scene: Interesting point raised about the Guk Bap which they were eating during the Confession Scene

 

Restaurant window: Daro (In Isolation or separately)
Daro guk bap means that things are separate but you put them together and it becomes Gukbap. SO it is a metaphor for their relationship. If someone says you are “Daro guk bap” then that means you should be together, not separate.

 

In the epilogue picture, we see the butterflies flying over the princess, they land on her face and fly away.

COMMENTS
Wow, I love where this is going. I love how it is a slow build that was made a bit slower due to this scandal. The scandal introduced the stakes which are basically that SH could lose her hotel if she is involved in a scandal. We also see that the mother is actively trying to get Sh involved in a scandal in order for her to quit her CEO job and date Woo-seok again.

 

But on top of that, it looks like Woo-soek is not a jerk, he is a noble idiot! He split from Soo-hyun to protect her from his family. Only that isn’t working out. Now that conversation he had with that woman in the restaurant makes sense. It was a confusing conversation because they are basically contract dating or “fake” dating. he has no real interest in marrying her. At least, that is what it seems like from this episode. His mama even knows that he wants Soo-hyun back, y’all.

 

So far this drama is keeping me guessing, I like it!

Spoiler

CSH says hearing the words “ I miss you” would make anyone happy to hear them but she thinks he doesn’t undertand the implication of his words so she will pretend like he never said them. 

 

KJH says that the world is full of many countries, what are the chances that two people belonging to the same country meet in another country. Their paths keep crossing multiple times. What would you call this? 

 

CSH is at a loss of words and says let’s Continue to eat.
