I say future boyfriend because Secretary Jang is part of this dating app where she gets an update about a new member who fits her preference. That new member is LDC aka snail shop owner, KJM made him a profile on the same app. LDC wants a nice looking profile picture so that it can attract the ladies so KJM tells him to cover his moustache, he ends up hiding most of his face.

 

Secretary Jang doesn’t know that it’s him but his bio on the app says he is a restaurant owner. So she wonders if he has a chain of chicken restaurants and gets a big ole smile on her face while wondering if he owns a chain of family restaurants.

 

confident that they are going to start to DM each other by next episode without knowing each other’s identity.  :D

 

Dating app??? Cool :glasses: :joy:

 

thanks to all :wub:

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

Why do I have the feeling that the ending may not be a happy one? 

1. Title of the drama is boyfriend/ encounter.. which is not permanent

2. They are starting a something relationship.. not a permanent one 

3. Ex is in love with her

4. KJH said .. it is meaningful tti be in someone's heart even for a SHORT TIME

5. Someone said tragic story??

.. all this makes me think the ending will be bittersweet...csh will  get back with her husband n be herself n kjh?? Don't want to think about it

 

Really hoping for a happy ending.. please tell am wrong

  • Not only that... SHK said in an interview after DOTS that she wants to get in a melodrama where a love cannot be. So I'm really hoping our noise will be enough to get the PD to change their mind! :bawling:

I'm starting to get why SHK and PBG accepted this drama.

 

This is more than a Noona relationship drama. It speaks the truth about prejudice against women having relationship with much younger men. And for some reason, it hits close to home when it comes to SHK's relationship with SJK when it started. Although not to this extent. But still, it's kind of breaking barriers against prejudice about this kind of relationship. It also speaks about women having power without total dependence from men.

 

Oh no.. This is not your typical Noona drama. This something so much more! :tounge_wink::dizzy:

Totally agreed with this comment, the script reminded of SHK and SJK's relationship. Prejudice is hard to avoid when anyone spend their lives different from the general norm of the society or the majority of people. 

 

In this episode Park Bo Gum's acting amazed when KJH truly understand CSH and lead CSH to have her real life, no need to be over-behaved like a robot for political purpose.  SHK could make audiences realize CSH's pain from being such robot.

That's the thing.. It all ended up being messed.. Their relationship suffered for misconception n miscommunication problems..  I can imagine the life they were trying to like.. JWS thought that he had encouraged her to be more free towards him n expressed his feelings towards her.. CSH thought the ideal he wants her to fit is the shallow CSH she is showing to the World.. So their thoughts n everything was in wrong direction!! 

BUT to me, JWS is mainly responsible for the failure of his marriage! BECAUSE if he loved her, he should have confessed to her before... if his pride and his fear hadn't stopped him. By letting her know that he loves her, the misunderstanding could have been cleared up. Then he let her believe that it was an arranged marriage, while he felt differently in reality. Moreover, he even admitted that he didn't protect his wife properly from his mother. In my opinion, his mother resented CSH for not loving back her son... which created a vicious circle. CSH became colder and more distant which made JWS even more unhappy.

It's indeed a vicious circle.. I agree to ur point.. But still can't say it's his fault.. He has done this unknowingly.. He had a different way of loving her while he couldn't protect her.. He isn't vicious yet like his mom.. If he does wrong stuff like his mom, I would blame it on him!! I m just waiting to explore more in their relationship to understand more on what it had been!!

But he lets his mother meddle in his life which leaves the impression that he is not strong enough and even "immature". He is not brave enough to confess... sorry, I can not feel sorry for him. I certainly don't hate him but he is relying too much on his wealth and social status. He never tried to impress her with himself... all his "good actions" happen behind her back.

KJH is more courageous as he revealed the identity of the man eating ramen with CSH. JH has less connection and power than JWS but he doesn't let stand her alone. But JWS did... he never gave her the feeling that she was not alone. 

 

@nikir Yes, it is a melodrama... but if you look how the drama started, it showed a lot of suffering. CSH was introduced as an unhappy person, not able to live freely therefore I am expecting the opposite. It starts badly for CSH but she will live happily at the end. But for that, JH and CSH must fight for their own happiness. The title "encounter" could be perceived differently. encounter = fate which can be seen as something positive. Moreover, TIMING is the essence. There is another reason why JWS can not be loved by CSH. He is always missing the timing. Notice that in the last episode, while he was sitting in his office and giving instruction to his secretary how to help CSH, JH was already a step ahead of him: he made the first step and protected in public. He even drove to that hotel too late, he gave her the dress too late... he has never been proactive enough.

We all need to take a deep breath.  It's way too early to be dreading and worrying.  We are only on episode 5!

 

Admittedly I have watched a couple of dramas this year that have totally wrecked me (Time and Ghost Detective both ended very badly and I am NOT over either of them).  But I refuse to consider that the gem that we are currently watching will end in a cruel manner.  It's too beautifully made and just too good generally for things to go completely wrong at the finish.

 

I want to believe in a happy ending.

@bebebisous33 yes that I have to agree that JWS is such a poor guy with bad timing n bad sense of judgement n actions!! While KJH's straightforward approach towards CSH is rapidly melting her n making her want him!! I just wanna see more of these three n their dimensions.. Gosh!! There is soo much more to explore!! JWS is cowardly too, he can't put a strong fight against his mom!! It's really a pity!!

It seems like everything is at the wrong place and the wrong time. Not only for JWS but also for CSH and JH.

 

It make's me think of this quote "The only thing stronger than love is time" :bawling:

thanks to all :wub:

 

I could be wrong but I think the drama was parodying this popular Korean app called I-Um because the icon looks really similar. It’s strict with security and has a high marital success rate so it’s not for people looking to casually date.

I don't understand what went wrong in the marriage. She seemed to try to make the best out of it.

 

Like others said I think it all went wrong from the beginning. Its one thing to try to adapt to the new environment but that doesn’t mean she likes it. She tries to make lemonade out of lemons.

For me,melodrama always give uncertain ending..when I think it will be happy one,the opposite happen,n vice versa :sweatingbullets: although I'm huge fan of happy ending group,but if necessary to end the drama with the sad one, to give off satisfaying story, I will try to accept it (n try not to curse the writer :rolleyes:

I can't pinpoint why SH marriage failed in the first place either so I won't comment in this one for now cz I still need to see their flashback story about it..so lets see for the upcoming epi..

N it will be fun to see how sec jang relationship will sail with JH hyung..haha..

BOYFRIEND fighting!!

 

Ps:I'm a little bit worried about one sided love that JH best friend felt for him,I hope it won't turn her into bad character,becz of her longing for JH..hope she still be one of his supporter when bad times come..
