The reasons for hating a character can be varied. It is either well or poorly written, well or poorly portrayed, the character itself is despicable. But it is sad that people mixed up their feelings and used them the wrong way. I do feel bad for him being the target of such behavior.

I think SJ involvement with VP was going to be exposed and SJ  decided to use YR to cruelly force JS away from him with divorce as the objective. He had to be this cruel to make her despise him and sign divorce papers; wanted her safely out of the way especially given her fragility after the miscarriage/stillborn.  Something happened and his dealings with mistresses and dark money was revealed to be close to being exposed. He has to have game plan of some sort but regardless the "plan" would not save his professional reputation. Maybe the climax will be the hidden shares and SJ manipulated so can't be used by VP?  maybe for him an affair is better then being "dirty".

I only see what looks like brother-like affection from SJ to VR. absolutely no passion in their interactions...and should be lots at this stage of their relationship.Wonder if when reviewing the CCTV SJ saw something we don't know. Did he decide to play the situation when he found out YR texted his wife? Are the clenched hands anger? ok, maybe doesn't make sense with timelines etc..but will help me get to next week and the final two episodes.

 

Question: Did the matchmaker tape the conversation with YR? Looked like she had a small tape recorder...

 

I think JS is pregnant. He will go to the hospital with her and find out then...

Yes, the matchmaker taped their conversation...wonder what was said???  For 14 episodes i have, flipped flopped about SJ.  Idk.  I think he is just not a nice guy.  The writer wrote him this way so we would feel this way about him and just like JS, we never really saw the true person until this episode, just like her in this episode.  A small part of me hopes i am wrong but idt so.

@mellinadear @at2005 I don't understand this hate and bashing to LSY, the actor either. People need to differentiate between acting and as a fellow human being. I'm pissed and feel bad for him for getting this behaviour just because of his work. 

 

The character was written that way so that we, the audience along with JS find out the truth, secrets and lies. And let's be honest, we don't even what else he is hiding now lol. If an actor/actress makes your BP boil and still tune in for the next episode, they are doing a fabulous job. 

 

@Maureen Mckay So true and you are right. For the first time, she is seeing him for who he is, not the one she knew for 10 years from her perspective. And you know what the worst part is, everyone knew except for her and that truly hurts. 

 

True, SJ is not a nice guy. But he is also a coward and doesn't know how to clean up the consequences of his actions. It's true that he had an affair. But when JS gave him another chance for their marriage after she found out about the affair, he really meant to work it out with her but you know as usual, he screwed up the moment he said he is not hiding anything from her. I Iant his perspective for the remaining episodes since we now know what he was truly hiding. 

 

As for the YR answer with the matchmaker, I'm curious as well. 

 

@NAB Yep, she can't be pregnant. I don't think they even slept together after JS decided to move on from the baby room. That's why she was excited about their wedding anniversary which got ruined:crazy:.

Y’all, if you support LSY send him some love. This is really crazy how people react to the actor because of the role he/ she is playing. 
Go watch him on episode 98 of “Masters in the “House”. He is smiling and laughing as he reels in a big fish.This is the real LSY. :heart:

Its hilarious... im not sure why this drama is getting high ratings; maybe because its winter and people dont want to go out often hence are watching this highly irritating drama... indeed, one can get high blood pressure from the slow episodes and the content as we all love a happy drama where husbands dont cheat but VIP is about a drama showing the audience how a husband cheats with his colleague and torments his innocent wife......

 

it is unfortunate that LSY is getting the hate, globally, for his role as PSJ.... its okay, its only a drama LSY, now people know u as a handsome man cheater, ... is it your 1st evil role? :D

 

I just wanna read the drama ending on this thread... rather than watching it... i have given up earlier on... kudos to those who have the strength to carry on and increased their blood pressure because of the drama... :D

I think those people who sent hate/love mails to actors knew what they were doing. They must enjoyed it. Even Hollywood actors experience the effects of  the roles they played. I  can't remember who but he was very adamant about accepting only hero roles. 
LSY knows now to demand a lot more money for negative roles in future. :rolleyes:

JS is not pregnant.  She is stressed out because of SJ and the mistress.  Understandably so!  Excessive stress can cause physical symptoms! 

 

SJ is into the mistress!  Did you see the surprised look on SJ's face when the mistress agreed to the matchmaker's interview?  Even after SW completed his interview, SJ told YR she did not have to do it.   After all, if SJ is her man, why would YR agree to a matchmaker's interview?   Did you see the look on the YR's face when she was asked to do the matchmaker's interview?  She was excited about the interview and jumped at the chance!            

 

JS is being pressured by the new chairman and the VP's wife to bring down the VP.  They don't really care about SJ or YR.  They are using SJ's affair with YR as emotional fodder to get JS to do their bidding, which is bring down the VP.  JS sees right through them and she knows what their agenda is.  Thats why she never revealed to either of them what she thinks about SJ.    

 

However, now that JS has realized how little she knows SJ and how dirty he really is, she has some thinking to do about how she really feels and what to do about everything she knows.  I loved the last scene in episode 14 when JS stops and stares at SJ.  For the first time since her life was turned upside down, JS sees SJ for who he really is. I think the last two episodes will show how JS's decisions and actions will teach SJ what decency really looks like.  In other words, no revenge, but simply right from wrong.         

 

Hopefully, JS will divorce SJ in the end.  Even if JS and SJ come to some sort of understanding of how things went astray in their marriage, SJ was so ugly and so disrespectful to JS, it would be a travesty of justice if they stayed together.   I think JS will find peace and SJ will live with regret; as it should be.

 

As for this mistress, who cares?

Part 2 of my ranting over Ep. 14 (if not this week's episodes and the overall drama progression) coming up! ^_^

 

Standard disclaimers aka apologies in advance :sweatingbullets::

  1. Long rants
  2. Multiple (cuts of) posts

 

10 hours ago, ktcjdrama said:

How can it be bad acting if that’s exactly what the director wants? Just because a character is created to have bland expression, it doesn’t mean that the actor is bad in acting out that unlikeable bland expression. In real life, there are actually people who go around their life with such bland expressions. I will only say an actor cannot act if, for every character he takes on in various dramas, he only shows that same expression forever. Here, LSY is PSJ, a man of few words with sullen bland face. I have seen LSY in many dramas and he can act as different characters. 

 

Anyway, why was YR rather shaken with the matchmaker interview... My thought is that she is being reminded to think of her potential married partner with her position as Ha Yu Ri, not as Ohn Yu Ri. I think it is dawning on her that PSJ isn’t a person that her new family will approve. So she became conflicted.

 

I have several (maybe I'm exaggerating, but I'm still frustrated over seeing JS still being (metaphorically) kicked to the floor by SJ, YR, and the VP) complaints  about the drama...and Lee Sangyoon's acting (and Pyo Yejin's, the actress playing YR) is NOT one of them. As pointed out by @ktcjdrama, @sin hoonsim and any other Soompiers I forgot to mention here, Lee Sangyoon has shown various facial expressions in other dramas; it's just this drama where the screenwriter and director probably instructed SJ to adopt this blank, "poker-faced", but unmistakably guilt-ridden facial expression.

 

Notice even in the Ep. 11 flashback the transition of SJ's facial expressions from:

  1. A happy, hopeful SJ who was helping JS set up their nursery room for their unborn baby, to
  2. A concerned, wary SJ who was trying to talk with an increasingly depressed, emotionally-shut-off JS during their one-year grieving period (though SJ should have continued staying by JS's side instead of "unburdening" his pain over his unborn baby and his deceased father to YR), to
  3. The present blank but obviously guilt-ridden SJ who doesn't know how to undo the initial betrayal that he caused behind JS's back when JS finally stepped out of the nursery room and went to him for consolation.

Lee Sangyoon did what he can with an otherwise thankless role as SJ whose true nature of his affair with YR and his allegiance with the VP we've (and JS?) only seen the tip of the iceberg. (Off topic, better pack a crash helmet and a parachute glider before swallowing the red pill and delving into SJ's and the VP's past dealings in the company, JS..:fearful:)

 

Now, allow me to vent out my grievances toward the (screenwriter and/or the director of) the VIP drama, starting with the smallest but MOST IMPORTANT one highlighted by @DL Wetherill in the quoted post below:

 

 

14 hours ago, DL Wetherill said:

I been dying to ask this....who in the world came up with that haircut/hairstyle for SJ. What in the world 

 

NGL, my mother watches this drama too, and she asked me yesterday why Lee Sangyoon/SJ has this "loser" haircut/hairstyle!?:tounge_xd: I was so engrossed (code: frustrated at my wit's end) over the drama that I was wondering, "Where did that come from, Mom?" Little did I (and my mother) know that @DL Wetherill and perhaps more Soompiers (and viewers) asked the same rhetorical question...

 

First the blank facial expression, now the haircut/hairstyle...Lee Sangyoon/SJ certainly can't catch a break (well, SJ, NOT Lee Sangyoon, deserves worse criticism than those, but oh well)...

 

And speaking of catching breaks...us Soompiers need to (re)read two of @Ameera Ali's post/memes here and here. Apparently the two-timing hypocrite SJ can't get a handle on the two leading ladies in his life and is being told off by his (rich) hoobae SW. Here're my three words of advice for SJ (and YR and the VP, while we're at it):

When she says you lost your world,  she's talking about SJ. She said that when he first brought her home,  she was relieved.  Not only because she was kind and gentle,  but she looked like she meant the world to him! 

 

I whole heartedly agree with his mama's words.  He got caught up in the moment,  in the heat of passion, regardless of what he was doing for VP, this was outside of that. He stumbled and wavered from his wife on his own.   Their troubles and hardships were too much to bear and YR redirected his thoughts, and also gave him the attention and affection he was not currently getting from his wife. What a cop out and worst mistake he will ever make!!!  But whatever he and YR had was just that.. a moment.  He will realize this soon enough, and just what he's lost because when it hits him, we will know because, it will bring him to his knees!!!

 

Sorry to cut your post, @2good2btru. And, no, you (and any Soompier or viewer out here) are never late to discuss anything about this drama; we're here and seething in rage...:rage:

 

SJ got caught up the moment...of highly-charged, misplaced grief and empathy towards himself and YR at the expense of JS's wellbeing. As @2good2btru brought up, SJ felt shut off by JS that he shifted his attention to his work (as the VP's lapdog) and YR's "woes". Still, it's SJ's fault for assuming that JS will live the rest of her life shutting off from him over the stillbirth, or that JS is "strong enough" that she doesn't need his shoulder to cry on like the "pitiful" YR. Hello!? No matter how willful and strong JS is, that doesn't mean she can or has to shoulder the pain and grief by herself. JS herself said that she wished SJ lashed out at her over his grief or frustration at the stillbirth and/or JS's emotional distance; for she wouldn't judge him for his breakdown as long as he shares it with her.

 

But good lord, SJ's not doing any favors with JS by distancing from her, ingratiating himself with the VP and YR, and still being elusive with JS over his personal and professional affairs. As long as SJ keeps on prolonging his (many) chances of reconciliation and forthrightness with JS, he will realize too late his cop-out, worst mistake and won't even be able to give closure to JS (AND the VIP team, who are now unwittingly caught in crossfires over SJ's affair between JS and the VP/SJ/YR traitor-triangle).

One thing good that the writer points out if this drama is the men who is imperfect and flawed (Byung Hoon, JinHo and Sang Woo) are much more of a man to their women as compared to a perfect man envied by many (PSJ). Meaning to say mediocre sometimes are better. :D

 

That brings me back to the infamous Cha pyramid in Sky Castle, where the wealthy but humble (and hilariously funny) Woo family, particularly their not-so-academically-inclined but wise middle-school child Woo Soohan, pointed out that staying in the middle guarantees a middle ground of ultimate happiness and contentment, whereas striving for the top usually results in imminent resentment and dissatisfaction (if not irreversible breakdown).

 

Not only do BH, JH, and SW fit that "middle ground", but they're commendable for owning up to their flaws and mistakes and listening to and respecting their significant others (I know, SW doesn't officially have a significant other, but I consider his dynamic with JS and the VIP team as such in this case).

 

I will also give the screenwriter kudos for fleshing out quite realistically MN's overall circumstances as a working mother who never got promoted for six years, nearly lost her marriage and job over her misguided trust in working with Director Bae, and is now struggling over the prospect of quitting her work due to her unplanned pregnancy. Thank goodness her husband BH is stepping up to help MN around the house and request for more job tasks to financially support their family, when he could have otherwise been blaming MN for temporarily moving out and scheduling for an abortion without informing him or their two little children of anything. I hope that JS is still holding on to MN's resignation letter in case MN changes her mind about quitting and instead requests for maternity leave.

 

In other (happier) news, JH says he'll think about HA's request in going out, but his initiating the hand-holding speaks volumes...this ship is sailing...:wub:

 

That concludes Part 2 of my ranting of this week's episodes (and the overall drama progression).

Just watched ep14 wth subs n noticed sthg in Yuri's mood during n aft her session wth d matchmaker. 

 

2nd time d lady askd her choice of husband now tht her status has changed? Yuri kind of hesitated?

 

1.  She just discovered SW is a Minister's son.

2.  Appeared like she swayed to give an answer

3. Later in the car she commented to SW seems rather close wth JS.

4. Just wondering if she is contemplating going aft SW? Yuri once commented tht she is jealous of JS.. so mayb she too must now grab hold of SW?

5. She was secretly listening in to d chatters of other family members as she ws heading to the restroom. Then the unkind words coming fm her father tht from now on she must start to forget her mother??

6. Aft the family meal in the car we saw her deep in thoughts.. well lets see if she makes a move this time on SW???

I've just watched ep 14 with subs and now I have an idea about the ending.

 

No reconciliation because JS finally found out that SJ is unworthy of her self-destruction. We know that JS has issues with people who decides to abandon their lawfully wedded spouse do to the history with her mom. Unfortunately, she married a guy exactly like that. Even worse, her husband was actually an agent/ middle man of a person with numerous mistress. Instead of condoning such acts, SJ indirectly supports such behaviour by repeatedly managing the VPs mistress. Upon that realisation, JS would be able to find her peace at the end of the show.

 

YR will also finally realise that she is merely the VPs pawn. She is only useful when she still is useful. If YR decides to stay with SJ, VP won't be able to marry her off to another powerful family. So she is no longer a viable investment.

 

The VP, mistress, fund scandal will blow off so VP will have to leave the company. SJ leaves too because he is casualty. YR continues with her pitiful look by the road.

 

The 4 ladies - JS, HA, MA and JY flips their hair and walks towards the sunset. The 3 guys - JH, SW and BH follow behind the ladies.:D:D:D

Sang Woo wouldn’t go near YR “with a ten foot pole” it is clear how disgusted he is with her and what she has done to JS. There is a “snowballs chance in hell” that Sang Woo would have anything to do with her.

I also think it is dawning on YR she can do even better than SJ. The HA family will look down on SJ the same as his half siblings but probably worse.
