I wasn't sure I would be posting here again but my love for the last episode and our JinSoo couple brought me back to say a few words.   I pretty much lost it at Jin Hyuk's expression when h

I think that I found their room  , they will definitely have to explain the balcony kiss if my guess is correct.    CSH’s room in first episode      She is back in the same

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

Oh how I love the final minute of episode 4 when SH and JH smile at each other like there are only two of them in the whole world.

 

They are really brave.

 

JH for being willing to step into SH's lonely world where power and media scrutiny prevail even though he can't even pinpoint exactly what feeling for her is.  The moment he reveals himself, he will forever be associated with SH no matter what he does. Even if he is not her boyfriend now, he will be considered one by the public despite SH so far has only acknowledged him as a friend. JH truly puts SH's interest before his, seeing her being bullied from all sides and even people who do care about her can't explain for her.

 

SH for finally acknowledging her relationship, whatever it may be in the public's eyes - friendship or dating - with JH. With JH coming forward like that, she can no longer keep him safe from the spotlight. But she also cannot rebuke or disregard him as a stalker because it means she lies to herself and hurts JH deeply while all he is trying to do is for her sake. For once, in front of other people - who presents the public, she dares to show her true feeling and reciprocate JH's goodwill, knowing full well how that will further maker her own mother and ex-MIL furious. I believe JH cannot image how hard it will be for him because he is unfamiliar with how politics works. Let's hope that there will be no beating or false crime accusation like what gangsters often do but other people that JH care about may end up getting hurt: his parents and his friends (at least it is highly likely that their business and job will be in trouble). But I bet SH can imagine that to a certain extend: she has been fighting the evil for years and it takes so much hard work, determination and strong will for her to get to where she is now; she may lose everything. This time, JH's pure concern really encourages her. 

 

We already see how SH's effort be easily robbed away from her and how people plot for her to fall down so that she has to live her life the way they want. Soon, I am afraid we may witness JH's world crumble and he can no longer smile innocently and happily frequently the way he does now. But I am also ready to see how these two handle obstacles together. There is no way SH can go back to her old life before JH. 

 

Only 4 episodes so it is too early to tell anything but I firmly believe in a happy ending with these two reuniting in Cuba :) 

 

P/S: I have no complaint at all so far about the drama. But is it too much to paint SH's mother as a purely power-greedy person like that? I can't believe SH and her father put up with that woman for so long. Hopefully there will be some type of explanation why she becomes that way.

while looking for more info about the photography team, ijust came across this fun article about E/B. love the screenshots  and gif. :P

to quote binahearts of Soompi: 

 

"Every single word and sentence that is spoken between the two carry so much weight and importance. The little things like the close-ups of their hands and feet showing their nervousness and anticipation makes you feel the butterflies that they’re feeling. This is much owed to the director and the drama’s production value!"

It would be great if after JH's efforts to save CEO SH's situation in public there, both Driver Nam & Sec Jang step up and acknowledge JH in a polite & friendly manner to show the public they already know/met him and then the four of them leave together. Like a team. Maybe it can help stop the bad rumours or speculation. 

 

Or is this hope too simplistic & not the accepted culture for people around CEO SH like Driver Nam & Secretary Jang to do.

I think it would be very in-character of Manager Nam to escort them both to the car while Secretary Jang worries along behind them.  I'm hoping that the showdown in the atrium ends that way, because I can't imagine what sort of secondary climax the writer could bring us to?

@bebebisous33 (yey i got the @ right!) thanks much for the insights on those amazing artwork. can't wait to do my own screengrab and do my own reading of the materials. this other art dept work  is very much consistent with the rest of the storytelling visuals of the drama -- symbolical, multi-level and beautifully executed. really remind me of French fairy tale books. i am still curious to understand that artwork with the butterfly. i've read another post here with a  very rich 'Psyche' interpretation, but i still want to know more. 

 

and i must say this forum is really a wealth of interpretation and insights. i have even started a file to paste some of the posts, just so i can get back to them at a later time. thats' what a good drama does to its audience. it makes us come alive. :blush:

 

here's to a new week ahead with our Princess and Boyfriend!
