I am rewatching the matchmaker scene,  because I love seeing  someone being attentive towards JS and it's just icing on the cake that her not so attentive husband is there to witness it. Ha! Lo l

 

One thing that I noticed and not sure the significance or meaning yet but when the matchmaker asked YR what she wanted in a husband and she  replied with, someone warm and kind. The matchmaker says, that is something Oh Yoo  Ri would want.  But what would Ha Yoo Ri want and wouldn't she want something different?  She is emphasizing that change in YRs last/ family name.

 

I'm not sure if matchmaker is calling YR out that she's still thinking like her old self and not the VPs daughter, someone wealthy because she's hinting that she knows that she's not really the VPs daughter.  Or is the matchmaker telling her to have a different frame of mind for considering her future spouse because she is the VPs daughter and should be thinking of alliances instead.

I took that to mean she has to change what she needing in a husband now that she is part of the Ha family.

VIP fighting! 

Jang Nara MUST be nominated.  She has absolutely blown me and everybody away in this drama.  

 

I would also be so happy to see the very underrated Lee Chung Ha receive a nomination as Hyun Ah.

 

She might be overlooked as she isn't as famous but I would love to see Kwak Sun Young who plays Song Mi Na be nominated. I am very curious about this actress as apart from a small role in a movie in 2014 there are no acting credits listed for her before 2018.  I think she is so believable in VIP.  Does anyone know anything about her and why she started acting so late?

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. 

So true! Wheeling out the same old tears and sob story every episode as if she is the only person who has had a hard life doesn't make her at all sympathetic when she has consistently been shown to be cheating, greedy, covetous, jealous, a liar, manipulative, selfish, stupid, lazy and cowardly throughout the drama. All whilst she embraces playing the victim.  She is a vile character with no redeemable characteristics. Her and Sung Jun are utterly repulsive.

 

Now, she is even getting arrogant in her undeserved job because of her position as the VP's daughter. The stupid fool doesn't even realise that she is just a tool. She might get to wear expensive clothes now but the VP doesn't care about her at all and she will never fit into that world or that family.

As others have said I do think the matchmaker might have made her consider her options a bit. Before the VP publicly recognised her, taking Sung Jun from Jung Sun whom she clearly envied must have seemed like a great victory to her.  But now in her new role as VP Ha's daughter it's obvious that being in a illicit relationship with an older, married illegitimate man from a poor background who is basically her father's dog will only continue to make her an outcast in the circles she wants to fit into. Nobody will respect him or her. Especially as JS is refusing to make things easy and divorce so they still have to sneak around like the dirty cheaters that they are.

 

It probably won't happen but I would LMAO:lol: if she starts desperately trying to hook some handsome young chaebol's son with Sung Jun's dumb richard simmons looking on :neutral: (aka confused and sad face) as usual. Idiot SJ was obviously unhappy with her doing the matchmaking interview:lol:  His mistress fishing around for someone younger and better than him would be some hilarious karma for that adulterer.

From this drama storyline, it has strengthen my belief that those who truly love you will make you like a child instead of making yourself a strong and mature woman. Because the man who truly love you wants you to be a happy person under his care. May be SJ did not love deep enough, he chose career over his wife, sad to say that and he had no courage to mend the broken marriage...

 

What I see now is woman's revenge. The more we get angry, the more we are penalising ourselves, because anger is our biggest enemy.  I had a real case of my gf, after she had done a revenge to her man, she turn into depression. The best for women is to stay away with the one who hurt us deeply, start a new life. Sometime, we never know the other side is greener once we try to look up for it. Anger and hatred is an acid that can do more harm to us.

 

Set ourselves free by creating a life worth living and treasure it, it will be a remarkable reward to ourselves...my belief :wub:

 

I hope the writer making the ending a meaningful one.

SJ is really too much. His heart clearly has changed to Yuri. I only accept what he did with Yuri up until her mother's funeral.

All after that, driving her to work, celebrate her birthday, the umbrella scene is really too much. He's like willing to go against the world, even his mom for Yuri <_<.

 

And Cha Jin Ho is right, SJ is blinded by Yuri, he cannot see anything else at this moment.

 

So nope, he wont go back to JS, nor JS will take him back.

 

I stopped watching this drama in full since it is confirmed SJ and Yuri has a real affair (episode 8 I think). But I started to watch again since the last 2 episodes, because I see how JS has started to move on. Before that, it broke my heart  to see JS trying really hard to hold on to SJ, while SJ is being so giddy and happy with Yuri.

 

I really hope JS will remain this sweet and kind woman as this is what she is. She can end up with SW I'm fine with that. SW is actually a very sincere man with so much dignity. He can actually use his parents' connection to have it all, but nope, he didn't.

 

And it's so satisfying to see Yuri started to crack. She is like feeling insecure all over despite having it all LOLOL :lol:.

@Maureen MckayOr is thematchmaker telling her to have a different frame of mind for considering her future spouse because she is the VPs daughter and should be thinkingof alliances instead. 
 

I believe different idea for future husband as a family alliance.
 

@razielaBut now in her new role as VP Ha's daughter it's obvious that being in a illicit relationship with an older, married illegitimate man from a poor background who is basically her father's dog will only continue to make her an outcast  in the circles she wants to fit into.

 

Definitely a problem that he is illegitimate. She maybe also, but her family line is rich and powerful.

Watch: Jang Nara Slaps Lee Sang Yoon And Pyo Ye Jin For Intense Confrontation Scene In “VIP”

Watch: Jang Nara Slaps Lee Sang Yoon And Pyo Ye Jin For Intense Confrontation Scene In “VIP”

Dec 19, 2019
by Y. Shin
 

VIP” has released a new behind-the-scenes video of its cast!

The clip begins with Jang Nara, Pyo Ye Jin, and Lee Sang Yoon preparing for a tension-filled scene in which Na Jung Sun physically confronts Park Sung Joon and Ohn Yoo Ri. Jang Nara insists that she can’t get too emotional since it will be dangerous for her co-stars, but Lee Sang Yoon and Pyo Ye Jin calm her nerves by making jokes. Jang Nara makes sure to rehearse the scene before the cameras begin rolling so they can complete it in one take.

Despite Jang Nara’s passionate acting as she grabs Pyo Ye Jin by her collars and slaps Lee Sang Yoon across the face, the director informs her that it was an NG (No Good) cut. Jang Nara immediately apologizes, but Lee Sang Yoon assures her that her slap didn’t hurt at all. After they film their second take, Lee Sang Yoon jokingly accuses Pyo Ye Jin of laughing when he got slapped. The three actors finish shooting the intense scene in high spirits.

The next clip features Lee Sang Yoon and Pyo Ye Jin sitting at a dining table together for a scene in which Park Sung Joon invites Ohn Yoo Ri over for a birthday meal. After noticing the well-prepared food, Pyo Ye Jin comments, “Who would divorce [Park Sung Joon]!” to which the director teases, “Yoo Ri! It’s because of you.” After the actors eat the delicious meal together, Lee Sang Yoon comments, “I’m just seeing how good it really is.” When a cake is brought in, Lee Sang Yoon digs his fork into the side that the camera will not be capturing and innocently says, “We have to know the condition of the props to really immerse into the scene.”

Lee Sang Yoon Says He Didn’t Expect The Explosive Response To His Character In “VIP”

Dec 19, 2019
by C. Hong

On December 18, actors Lee Sang Yoon and Shin Jae Ha held a live chat broadcast through Kakao M.

In particular, Lee Sang Yoon discussed his currently airing drama, SBS’s “VIP.” “VIP” tells the story of a team that takes care of VIP clients at a high-end department store, with Lee Sang Yoon playing the team head Park Sung Joon. Jang Nara plays his wife and colleague, Na Jung Sun, who comes to suspect him of having an affair.

Lee Sang Yoon and Jang Nara recently had a cute exchange on Instagram where they talked about “VIP” viewers’ angry responses to Lee Sang Yoon’s adulterous character.

lee-sang-yoon-shin-jae-ha.jpg

On the live chat broadcast, Lee Sang Yoon said, “This is the first time in my life that I’ve been cursed at so much. I expected this to a degree but it exceeded my expectations. Over 10,000 people have come into this broadcast just to yell at me. I’m grateful that they can immerse themselves into the drama so much to curse me out.”

Shin Jae Ha commented, “You said that the drama would do as well as Park Sung Joon was hated, so it’s doing really well.” Lee Sang Yoon agreed and said with a laugh, “The drama is doing really well. I am being cursed at by people all over the world. If it’s a good thing to be cursed out, then it’s really doing well.”

During the broadcast, Lee Sang Yoon called his co-star, Jang Nara, to ask her how she was doing. Although the drama is still broadcasting, filming ended in October.

Jang Nara said, “I am working a little and exercising regularly. I am studying on my own and receiving vocal lessons.” When asked about the popularity of “VIP,” she said, “I am very grateful. People liked it more than I expected, so I was surprised.”

Lee Sang Yoon asked her if she knew about the response he was getting and she said, “Our drama would not be popular if Lee Sang Yoon’s Park Sung Joon did not exist.” She added later, “I want to say that Lee Sang Yoon really worked hard to act the role of Park Sung Joon. Pyo Ye Jin worked really hard as well. They had to act something that isn’t easy, and they probably felt a lot of confusion, but they centered and led our drama well.”

To describe SJ - Proverbs 6:32 But a man who commits adultery has no sense; whoever does so destroys himself. Blows and disgrace are his lot, and his shame will never be wiped.

 

 I'm just saying that I feel like I betrayed my gender - by actually "enjoying" & obsessing over this drama. I personally hate that I vested so much into a drama that centers on adultery (with a side of workplace politics thrown in). I really thought there was more to it - I was hoping for a conspiracy or something: that SJ was doing this as a spy or that JS was in on it & they had to act their parts to convince the culprits.  But I'm not hatin' on the actors - they played their parts really well. I never confused LSY w/SJ. That shows the strength of his performance - I would waver between trying to believe the best of him yet seeing the worst of his character. 

 

So I'm over my guilt now. On with the drama....:phew:

@2good2btru the introductory scenes of the matchmaker explained it : she matchmakes sons and daughters of wealthy families. She said her success rate is higher if she has accurate information about them (reason for the interviews : to update her database).
 

Basically it is political marriage, family-to-family power match, no emotions kind of thing. She laughed at YuRi's 1st reply and told her she should now think as HYR because someone like her would need a rich, powerful husband to help her survive in the Ha family. Look at the people on her dinner table....and Mrs. Ha, her "mother". Of course, HYR must also have something to offer to her groom which at the moment is the only daughter of conglomerate Mr. Ha.  That's what the matchmaker meant. 


-----------------------------------------------


The scene of YuRi with the rich lady : rich lady told her - money cannot buy everything - but it is still better to be rich than poor ?

So clearly YuRi is not going to leave the Ha family for her Mr. Park - only poor stu*id Mr. Park SJ did not see that.


I don't think JungSun is pregnant but earlier post mentioned she may have some kind of stomach cancer like her mom - that could be a possibility as I wonder why her mom's section was introduced earlier in the drama.  If she is really pregnant, she will raise the child alone and will not reconcile with her unfaithful husband - how can she ever trust him again ?

I don't quite like the Sang Woo having a crush/romantic feelings for JS bit - it is  cliché - rich younger man pursuing her. JS is strong and independent enough to not need that handle.


The most satisfying scene for me from the last 2 episodes : when Park SJ mom gave him a good scolding and told him how he didn't know he has lost his whole world.

LSY is doing the right thing, showing the face behind the scenes, else he is going to be typecast as an adulterer actor. He already has two dramas as an adulterer. I didn't watch the airport show. It had good ratings Iheard.

@liltash85 I can normally separate character from real life person playing the part but I was thinking the exact same thing! Lol I felt like her demeanor was very similar to her character YR. I was like, youre kinda friendly to LSY and a bit handsy. Umm no.  Lol

 

I also felt like she was trying too hard to make it look like off camera that she's close to JNR. As though theyre friends off screen and was constantly hanging on to her.  She's trying not to get hated on by JNR/JS fans but for me made it feel like she was doing what YR did. She used JS to help her and put on that innocent act.  I was like oooh you're too much like YR and not feeling you. Lol

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. 

 

Ah... i can assure you my life have so much drama, even in my marriage;  if i have the chance to turn back time and do things differently, i would...and provably would not have choosen my husband as my life partner now, haha..... As for work, back-stabbing, nepotism and other politics are so common that one just silently does one's work, be happy and go back home; get your paycheck and watch happy drama at night, travel when there's holiday and be stress free. Yep, that's my life ..  :D

Jealous? :lol::lol: just kidding.

 

But the commentator said, they were creating the atmosphere for the episode. So the two cheating characters were preparing for their parts and JS plus others were also preparing for their part. I think the acting in KDs are very good. The only ones that stick in my mind is Everyone says Kungdari.

 

I watched the preview a few times because I thought JS was bleeding, no it was her hair that fell on her face.


Somebody mentioned her being bumped off.

 They won't kill off her character. Good god no. And allow the two to walk into the sunset? No way, no way.
