Regarding LSY’s acting, I think it is great. He is impossible to read- and has kept me guessing and compelled to keep watching each week. I find myself rewinding interactions to look for subtle body language, hand clenches, jaws ticking, following lingering stares and think the director and him (and the other actors) are doing a really good job.

 

He seems a pleasant actor but his character PSJ inspires such hatred, and I am keeping scanning for signs that he isn’t really a villain (but not finding enough to convince me sadly!)


I am sorry Yuri’s mum died and they didn’t have much cash but really..she had a loving Mum, enough cash to eat but possible not enough to buy a Hermes bag. Oh woe. Get over it love and stop using it as an excuse to be selfish. How will two such narcissists survive in a relationship? 


I am team Sangwoo. Look at his lovely parents as inspiration. No games needed.

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

Perhaps because it is something people could relate too. Been there done that, oh how I wish i coukd handle it like them etc. Perhaps because they couldnt release stress or anger, letting it out through the drama is one way to mske themselves feel better. If you haven't started working or have started working but havent had a chance to be in any of the women's shoes then consider yourself lucky. This is the real world for you. Things like this happen everyday somewhere in this big world. Balancing between the job and family is what we women do everyday. Some are fortunate enough not having to choose between the 2 but not everyone is that fortunate. I got passed over for a promotion not because the candidate had more experiences or could do a better job but only because her mother was a deputy director. Our company just got exposed because someone high up got caught having an affair with an intern in the office (must be the excitement of having fun in the public place). You might be getting riled up temporary until the show is over but when you have to be in these situations yourself the stress is extremely higher and it lasts for a very long time.

Well here we go, a reaction from the man himself acting in the role:-

 


On the December 18th live stream 'To You Who Took the Trouble', Lee Sang Yoon commented on the popularity of 'VIP' and the hate he's receiving for playing the part of a cheating and conniving husband. He said, "I have never in my entire life been insulted so much. I expected it, but it exceeded my expectations. A lot of people came in to the chatroom to curse me, and over 10,000 people have come in. Because people are getting sucked into the drama, I'm being cursed out a lot."

His co-star Shin Jae Ha then commented, "Hyung said that the more his character Park Sung Joon is cursed at, the better the drama is doing, and it's doing well." Lee Sang Yoon added, "It's doing extremely well. I'm being criticized from across the globe. If being hated on is succeeding, it's really succeeding."

 

Have to agree with this one.  Its easy to like the good guy but if you really dispise the bad one then they are doing their acting job well.

They hate PSJ because they really felt for NJS. :) If NJS character wasn't done right, people would have sympathized PSJ and understood why he became what he became.

Ep 14: END OF THE MAZE or end of my mind I would so love to punch Yuri and SJ just once in the face! JK    

The scene SJ with his Mom her emotions are palpable and I could feel the years of regret in her voice.  How can anyone want our heroine to forgive SJ ever!  VIP addicts lets live in reality this is FICTONAL So here it goes...SJ loves Yuri no matter how much it pains me to say it, he does in his imposter, dirty, adulterer, illegitimate bond way.  In this episode he celebrated her birthday with a cake to boot.  That leads me to believe the man more than pity's Yuri.  Before our heroine becomes more broken and transform into someone she is not but stay true to herself someone kind & lovely like SJ mother described her she needs to surgically remove this cancer from her life. I believe she is ready to move on now. What comes around goes around as the saying goes and those who cause harm to others surely eventually pay the price. She married someone for all the right reasons 10 years ago and now we know as I stated in previous post he's a complete imposter and liar the weight of his crappy and immoral life choices have placed the character in his current situation.  At no point has he complained about his road to success am I wrong?  SJ worried look when Yuri went in to chat with the matchmaker about what she wants in her future partner? My first thought was this seems off, what is SJ worried about that she states the obvious to all about her affair and continuing relationship with SJ or was it that this matchmaker whose job is too know everything will figure out she is not VP daughter but a forgery.  When the VP tells SJ in his office that we must Prepare WT hell does that mean prepare for what?  I enjoyed the scene with SW manning up and being the man SJ is no longer to our heroine. SJ usual dumbfounded look and subconscious stare were delicious. So without it being strategically planned unlike Yuri and her seismic text small cracks are occurring between the "cheaters" and they both know its happening.  I don't think Yuri pushed her down the stairs or is JS pregnant maybe she read the news online about her husbands affair and fell who knows with this drama.  The episode 15 preview with our heroine down makes me upset to think this will be her ending what in a coma or worse death...I really hope the writers did not turn VIP into and these are the days of your lives BS.  I believe sticking to her true nature our heroine will try to save SJ and like here friend told her see it through to the end and then let go. That last image made me so MAD until I saw SW face in the background.  So many themes in the show but the recurring are... decisions have consequences and you don't know what you have until is truly gone.  You don't need a man to save or provide happiness but respect and love yourself. Girl tribe is everything! Look forward to the ending not being a fairytale but just see below. Happy Holidays to all VEEPERS!!!

On a side note can Soompi please change bad language replace to BLEEP instead of Richard Simmons poor guy.

I don't remember which friend and what scene was that. But I like the letting go after seeing it through to the end.

K-Dramas are excellent in gettin' viewers to sympathise with the villains. In this case it's Sung Jun & Yu Ri. I don't get why y'all feel Jung Sun is preggers LoL. She's been under a lot of stress, her symptoms are not uncommon. Plus she & Sung Jun haven't been intimate since the loss of their child. That said, I hope she's alright (judging by next ep. preview) she's suffered enough. 

     Ahahah I can see now why there were earlier theories that Sung Jun was a pimp! He's VP Ha's fixer, he cleans up his mess tsk. No wonder he's so loyal. Sang Woo's lil tidbit was unexpected LoL! His concern for his noona gives me butterflies eheheh.. Hyun Ah/Jin Ho were all kinds of cute together too. 

     It looks like another exposé is 'bout to go off, with the vengeful sex fiend manager(?) He's planning to out Yu Ri/Sung Jun. Jang Na Ra just keep knocking it out of the park by slaying her role with finesse. I don't know if it's a calculated decision on Sang Yoon's part to be so indifferent LoL? I mean even on interviews & variety, he comes across really..bland & meh overall. 

 

@smhelen

Yeah agreed (nods) It's just in poor taste to use anyone's name to cover profanity. I'm only familiar with Richard Simmons as a fitness guy with his penchant for bicycle shorts.

This thread is moving so fast, I can hardly keep up with all posts. Love reading them, though. Thank you all for your interesting insights. :)

 

Anyway, after having watched ep 13 & 14, here are some thoughts:

  • It is clear now that SJ got caught up in the VP's dirty games as the VP's wing man. Did he do this for his own gain or was it an accident - that's what I would like to find out during the last two episodes.
  • SJ is pushing JS deliberately away in order to protect her from the huge mess he has created, so that she won't drown with him. He states it clearly when JS says she won't divorce him: "That will ruin the both of us"....
    Also: "it is better to be really bad than to be somewhat bad. It's better for JS if I make things clear"
    SJ might also know that he is too far down the rabbit hole, he has no chance of getting JS back. So he continues to destroy what's left of their relationship.
  • SJ still loves his wife - YR not so much. Even though he is next to YR in front of JS, he keeps following JS with his gaze. Body language doesn't lie...
  • I am still wondering if the "affair" with YR was just a mistake or if it was a deliberate act to protect his wife from his risky business. It's so obvious to me that SJ's and YR's relationship is based on pity, not on love. That will not last in the long run, and soon doubts and perhaps jealousy will slip into the relationship (as we will see in ep 15).
  • As I've stated before, there's a reason why we've seen 0% "adult" physical affection between SJ and YR. We saw kisses, steamy scenes and affection between SJ and JS, but nothing between YR and SJ. I am starting to believe there was never anything more than an emotional "affair" (if even that), there was never a "physical affair". Thus easier for SJ and JS to get back together, should the writer wish so.

Some future predictions:

  • I still think it's possible JS is pregnant. Even if she isn't pregnant, almost losing JS from the fall will be too much and we will hopefully see SJ finally being honest to JS about the double-life he's been leading.
  • Mi Na's husband will become a stay at home dad. Go Mi Na! :)  
  • YR will probably repent as she will have realized that she doesn't fit into the world she's been thrown into, and that SJ still loves his wife.
  • Not sure if JS and SJ will reconcile. If they are to reconcile, I hope the writer gives us a proper reason (e.g. SJ was blackmailed into doing all of those dirty things - not just for his gain, etc.). Also, a time jump might be in the works in the last episode.

Oh, and on a side note. If there's an amnesia scene after the fall, I swear I will not be a happy camper!!! :angry::D

Hi...

I have been thinking a lot of stuff around our drama. 

1. I feel SJ is really doble face, had dady issues, has a big problem with his ambitious. I read at some site before the drama started a caracter descrption and I remember see in: he used to be good but know hi is drawn by his ambitions.

So yes we have a man who seem impecable but in true he has been doing all kind of dirty stuff for his boss by his own will. Why...does he want to bad been name ceo...money, power, recognition....all this together. Was he scare or did not new how to handle the situation..??

 

2. He is not in love with Yuri. I think he sees her as an oportunity, he though she was easy to handle, that some how he can control her, but he just found out its not like this. He has been miss reading her, she has lie to him. And now he just does not know how to handle this, but just follow the situation. Because he is ussing her. 

 

3. Unfortunatelly I think our queen would have to either finish him and the VP, with all the pain in her heart she needs to be mooore bad and plann really good how to finish this 2 man. Because if not the consecuences would be so big for her and the VIP team. I do not believe SJ words yesterday when he told her he would always look out for the team, that she needs to stop and don't mess with the executives. Well to bad this war has started, and she may be afraid of the true she just found out bu I believe she can make a wisser strong decision that could benefit and protect the team. 

 

4. Yuri is bad, crazy, lazy and believes she owns the world, or at least in her head. But oh boy..she is having it coming. There is a price that it comes with money, a sacrfice you must do, and hers is coming, she thinks she won the men, but just because its here next to you it does not garanty would stay for ever, why...because she does not get that once you are put as the VP daughter and probably the next generation of the companie, your personal feelings does not exist, this parent just wants her because it helps him with his idea on conquer the president of the group spot, he does not care about feelings, she is a tool and would be used as one, if tomorrow a new oportunity comes to use her like marrying her with another conglomerate son he would make it happen, now he is trying to cover her lack of education and prestige by making everyone around her to work to make her look good so he can used her infront of the familly and executives. Nothing else

This is her price to pay for wanting to have it all free..easy..money..etc...

I do not feel sorry for her because she could have say no, but opted to say yes and accept the money...this is payment time. 

5. At first I also fantasise with the idea of JS to be pregnant. But after yesterday episode it would be better if not because she has to walk free from this painfull situation, she said it when she was with her friend mentor; there are not longer feelings there just the final resolution. And with a pregnancy in the way she would always bee linked to him, and at this point I do not think this is good.

She needs to move on, walk free from this mess, star fresh, bee happy because she deserves it. Deserves so much better. 

6. I want the VIP team to win, because they are strong, honest, inteligent, great people whp care about work and ethics...something that the VP and SJ are lacking. They use people into their benefit, so far everything has been great for them. But there must bee a stop for them. Shoe them how things are donne. No cheating, not lies. 

7. Probably the best would be for SJ and VP to end outside of the companie and in jail. 

8. Time jump...???. Probably but who knows so far the writter has surprise us with everything.

9. Could they be back togethet: mmm....SJ would neet to come clean and face all he has donne and change. At this point don't think he is capable of. He know he did bad but can he change..and correct this...???

His mom told him..he just let go and lost his world and can not see what he lost just time would show him that. 

10. The VP wife and sister really want him to lost. Probably have been planing amd trying before for it. 

11. Yuri cam bee the one to make bought VP and SJ lost everuthing. Hope its like this. Would be perfect punishment for the 3. 

 

Well so far this is what I have been thinking aftet yesterday episode. It's christmas time so lets hope writter give us an amazing 2 last episodes. 

The waiting is killing me.

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 didn't think about that! But you may have a point. You're right her vision about SW changed. Maybe she won't make a move on him but is jealous thata minister's son is caring with JS..

There's no way SW would be interested whatsoever in her tho lol

A scum of a lead man and a sick very well loved lead woman? Too much of a paradigm shift.

 

I don't think so. Unless the studio has suicidal tendencies, Korean fans are real fan(atic)s.  Our postings are really tame compared with some others.

I would love to read the English translation of the Korean Fan posts. My SIL is Korean and some of my friends and some of her friends got together. We went out to eat and then back to the house to drink and do Karaoke...it was hilarious. A group of happy, drunk singing women.
