Don’t get too bummed by news about ratings, it might improve next week. Instead leave positive messages for the cast and crew who are still shooting the drama. In one of the Dots interviews I read SHK say how she would read the responses of foreign fans after each episode. It’s possible that she might be looking for feedback again. 

 

SNS links for actors 

 

PBG

Alternately you can also leave messages on PBG’s agency Blossom Entertainment 

 

SHK

Alternately you can also give feedback to her Makeup artist and Stylist.

 

P.O

 

Jang Seung Jo

 

 

 

The song that everyone is looking for is an unreleased OST for the drama. It’s by a Korean American singer called Saltnpaper who was formerly known as MYK. Linking his post on IG confirming himself as the singer.

 

 

 

CSH’s owl doll is available for pre-order now.

The last part of Ep 3 and the beginning of Ep 4 somehow portrayed KJH as a little desperate and creepy, that's my biggest beef. Logically, it's the surprise factor of hearing that particular song on the radio which ushers in this rush of emotion, which is supposed to be powerful and touching. However, this vibe was missed.

 

On the other hand, they did a good job of acknowledging that it was too rushed and a little scary, which can potentially set up his character's arc, so I will reserve further judgment.

 

Outside of this complaint, I must say that the other characters are very well crafted. I find CSH's mixture of toughness and vulnerability to be relatable and likable.  Secretary Jang, and CSH's ex-husband JWS are two supporting characters that stood out to me. Kwak Sun-Young gave a very charming performance as Secretary Jang, and I thoroughly enjoy her scenes. In particular, her little "cola sass" was soo well done. JWS will no doubt play a significant role down the line, and his relationship with his ex-wife is very intriguing to me. To me, conflicting desires and motivations will always make a character intriguing, and this is no different.

Y do I feel that CSH's ex husband would be misled by his mom into believing that the person who wrote the thing on bulletin is KJH.. As his mom too knew that her son would see the bulletin news.. She might his love as a weapon to separate KJH n CSH.. I guess that's y he wants the information on KJH in the upcoming episodes!!.. Hope it's not the case!! -_-

and the ex husband for now but with reservation because I think he can't protect his wife before against his own mother. Though O think the reason why he said he is in love with another girl is that it is the only way he thought of in order for soo hyun to escape his mother. I love his loyalty and discreet effort. Loving her from the sidelines but I am also scared of him because he might be the worst person in the future. 

i love the anime art

I really hope WS won’t turn into a hateful and clingy second lead... He seems like a decent human being unlike his trash mother. I feel so sad for him if he really faked an affair so SH could walk away.

 

Even though he doesn’t win her heart I hope he’ll find his own happiness and break free of his mother’s clutches.

I really love the anime art at every episode!!.. I kinda feel pity for her ex hubby.. He is in threads between good n bad.. His love for CSH will lead him any one.. I could see him getting jealous too,  as he said to her secretary to make CSH stay low!! Plus he threatened his move that he would leave the group if she interferes, so she might use another method to make him do the work of reunion of them!! I really hope he ends as a good person, I don't want him to be negative.. I just want him to learn to be free person like CSH!!

wanna share some insightful post / on point tweets that i came across.  credit to below / logo 

 

Kpop and Korean Drama Pick
Episode 2
Thoughts

Now I know why this drama got a high viewers ratings for both pilot episode and episode 2. The story is flowing nicely.  no..it is not boring contrary to what others are commenting in some sites. I think if viewers will not see SHK as a married woman already and not mention Song Joong Ki or not see Park Bo Gum as a dongsaeng but as a legit actor... They would also find the drama interesting and quite good. Park Bo Gum besides being an eye candy and a refreshing sight on screen is a very talented actor. I think he has conveyed exact emotions his character called for. Like in episode 2 when he realized who Song Hye Kyo really is and when he finally see her again after their Cuba rendezvous. As for Song Hye Kyo, she is simply natural. I guess it helps that PBG is really her dongsaeng (in real life and even in the drama) ...kind of off limits to her stature as a CEO and someone who has lived her life in a controlled way. But what makes it cute is that she herself is not immune to his charms. She is also kind of curious and smitten to his smiles. Or perhaps she found comfort in his uncomplicated life. He is free to do anything and seems to be enjoying life as a young man. He is courteous and well mannered. He seems loved by his family. Unlike how she grew up in a political family, her actions are always filmed or captured by media that is why she must be cautious at all times not to make a mistake. A sad reality for her. Not to mention being married to a wealthy family and then divorced. She must have been walking on thin ice.

Episode 2 is fast paced. It showed already how 2 main leads bonded again. What happened in Cuba was a good memory which pulls them together and making it hard for them to draw the line between being a CEO and friends. She is just as curious and interested in him as he is to her. Both are trying to hold back their developing emotions to each other but has yet to succeed. I like their rest stop date. It was casual, comfortable and fun to watch. They could not hide their smiles and their gestures towards each other is visible even to the prying eyes (lens) of the media. A sad twist that came too soon. I think this will start the real story of their affair. It is not illegal though because both are free. Their friendship is also not morally wrong. But in the eyes of her family and maybe of the company it is ethically wrong and questionable at the same time. Did he have prior motive? I would certainly feel bad for him. He is just starting in his new job. While she would be seen as either being taken advantage of or she has gone crazy after her divorce going for younger guys. Kind of an undesirable situations seriously. It is not as easy to be her or to be him in this kind of situation. It is not like they can do anything they like. She has a responsibility as a CEO of a hotel. I know this is bull...reasoning but that is reality. She has to consider not only herself but people around her. Of course love must prevail and conquers all is a cliche but it is easier said than done. Because if it is..then there will be no broken hearts or relationships in reality.

Looking at PBG in the ending scene makes my heart pound for him and his concerns. His face might be covered in the news but his friend seems to have realized it was him with their CEO. Or will he be discovered by the whole company? What a dilemma!

Waiting for next week.

Hello chingus, I haven't commented on a drama thread in soompi in years... So happy to be back for encounter.
Some random thoughts about episode four-
1. I loved the cute way JH held the coffee cup while draping the coat over SH. SH's expressions while telling her life story thinking JH was asleep- that faroff, melancholic look while remembering the scars of her past - was mesmerising. In fact Song hye kyos eyes did most of the acting in this episode, but more on that later. 
2. It was funny how she was so distracted by JH at the bus stop that she got into an accident. In a way its good JH apologised on her behalf cuz he was indirectly the cause of it. :P
3. Her birthday dinner was so telling--she has lived such a suppressed life that she doesn't even remember her carefree acts and past personality. Love how Jh is bringing out that side of her.
4. That ending scene, when he called her name, I literally gasped. JH actions cudve been called impulsive and immature but he just cudnt stand for someone he cares about getting disgraced. That isn't in his nature, and so he selflessly risks it all to be by her side. And song hye kyo's eyes in that scene-that mix of relief, disbelief, hurt, confusion, I would say she's doing a masterclass in restraint. In fact, I don't understand the complaints about her so called "expressionless" acting, its all in the subtle shifts in her eyes, a stolen smile, her hands, her feet even. Like someone said, so much of the communication between them is implicit and nonverbal.
5. I also loved Nam drivers subtle acknowledgement of JH in the ending scene - like ha! He's worthy enough for SH, in reference to his earlier convo with the secretary.
6. Lovely use of music and graphics - it really adds to the mood. And thanks so much to the users here for explaining the metaphors, it really enriched my understanding of the drama.

And thats it! I'm really supposed to be studying for a major exam but here I am continuously browsing the threads for more news on this drama.

Secretary Min-Ji and Restaurant owner's little banter the best cute moment of the drama? (Mr.Nam's smile at close 2nd):innocent:

 

Also, Where is the lady Woo-Seok wanted to get married to?:sleeping:

 

My little recap/highlights of episode 4: https://www.asiandrama4u.com/encounter-episode-4-recap/:sweat:

 

hey, I think you got something wrong in the post.

kjh drops csh near her house, not his. after dropping off he crosses the road and is looking left right for a taxi but she calls him back because of the gift.

he doesn't drop her directly to her house because there are reporters outside her house.

Every scenes have a meaning. They thought us how commitment works in trouble. Loving gives you courage and being loved gives you strength.

Ratings wise the show is doing great! Like others have mentioned it’s a cable network. Why we tripping? I do enjoy the other show for different reasons *cough*(CJH)? Encounter is on it’s own level other shows can’t compare. IMHO

 

I’m seriously developing 2nd lead syndrome for now. WS hasn’t showed any ill will toward SY yet. I’m afraid his greed to love her will rear it’s ugly head... I was sad that she returned his gift. Does she realize all the bts stuff he’s doing for her? Poor rich, smart, & beautiful SY... 2 guys falling for her to boot? Love her though!

who is the official artist's drama? no wonder it was such beautiful work. an old fairy tale book coming alive with so much richness in it.

Jamsan . The artist has a YouTube channel and SNS 

 

 

When your own daughter chooses CSH over you. Mother asked her daughter twice who she found prettier, CSH or her. Daughter pointed to the TV both times.
