So we gonna have our ending this week...

 

My happy ending wud be:

1. JS credibility at work are recognised by others, that she excell without playing dirty, together with her own team being known as an excellent team, respected by everyone 

2. JS never look back at SJ again meet another man, preferably an honest & hardworking chaebol & they have kids & make a happy family 

3. SJ dismiss from his job following the exposed VP’s dirty laundry, years later struggling to move forward in other company regretting over losing JS ,  becomes an alcoholic 

4. It was proven YR isnt VP’s biological daughter and was sack by the grandfather, left by SJ, not accepted by his mother...better still he marries her but his life is more miserable than when he was with JS

 

That wud be ending I’m happy with, tho I doubt it’s gonna happens that way...

Jang Nara And Pyo Ye Jin Engage In War Of Nerves To Fight For What They Want In “VIP”

Dec 23, 2019
by L. Kim
 

Jang Nara and Pyo Ye Jin will be sharpening their claws for the upcoming battle of pride and love in “VIP”!

 

Spoiler

 

In the SBS drama, Jang Nara plays Na Jung Sun, the wife of Park Sung Joon (Lee Sang Yoon), while Pyo Ye Jin plays Ha Yoo Ri, Park Sung Joon’s “other woman.” In the beginning, the two had a warm co-worker relationship, but after it was revealed that Ha Yoo Ri was the one involved in the “private scandal” with Park Sung Joon, they are now at odd’s end.

 

In the previous episode, Na Jung Sun learned from Lee Myung Eun (Jeon Hye Jin) that Park Sung Joon is managing the vice-president’s (Park Sung Keun) women while handling and possessing the shares under borrowed names. Na Jung Sun was given the offer to cause the downfall of the vice-president, Park Sung Joon, and Ha Yoo Ri with the information. The viewers are wondering what decision she will make and how she will stage her plan of revenge.

 

On December 23, the drama released new stills of Na Jung Sun and Ha Yoo Ri. In the photos, Na Jung Sun is taking a break from work when Ha Yoo Ri abruptly enters the room and demands her to divorce Park Sung Joon. Ha Yoo Ri provokes her without any hesitation, and Na Jung Sun coldly stares at her in response.

This confrontational scene was filmed at a hotel located in central Incheon in October. With only one day left of the last filming, Pyo Ye Jin stuck to Jang Nara’s side as soon as she arrived on the set. Since then, the two actresses showed off their sisterly chemistry by holding hands and showcasing their cute charms. However, once filming started, they transformed into their respective characters and treated each other with loathing and tension.

 

The production crew shared, “The episode airing on December 23 will feature an eye-catching Black Society event as well as the essence of ‘private office melodrama.’ The actors will deliver a story of tension with their best teamwork. Please watch until the end.”

 

The final episodes of “VIP” will air on December 23 and 24 at 10 p.m. KST.

. I have a feeling the scene where JS fall the stairs will be at the end of episode. So we only have 60 minutes to conclude everything. To make a happy ending of SJ-JS to me is impossible


I had that same feeling about the fall being at the end of episode 15. :tears: I also agree that leaving only 60 minutes to wrap this up with an acceptable ending is darn near impossible. I ended another drama last night and the solution was in the last 10 minutes and had a one year later scene.:( Please VIP writers don’t do this to us!

 

With that said, I “enjoyed” (and I know that’s not the correct word) this series because the suspense kept me coming back. We were warned! My emotions (and blood pressure) were all over the place. I said I would not rewatch this drama, but I don’t know how many times I have gone back and forth between previous episodes trying to find clues or something that I have missed.

 

At the beginning of the drama, I was definitely in the JS and SJ as a couple camp.Now, at the end I want JS (and myself) to find out why SJ did what he did, to find out who he really loves, and to have an acceptable closure to the story that does not include SJ and “that girl” being together.

 

Thank you to all who took part in my “therapy group”. I would probably be in the hospital right now (or my husband might have put me in a padded closet) if I had not had this outlet. We didn’t always agree, but seeing the story through someone else’s eyes did give me a different perspective. The various plots that some “Soompiers” developed were amazing and maybe better than the ending we get.

 

I wish everyone a “Very, Merry Christmas “ and a “Happy New Year”. Here’s hoping we meet again!

I just missed out he entire first half of tonight! My usual live stream didn't work! So had to find another stream...

 

Spoiler

 

The ep 29 ended with Sung Jun's mom apologizing Jung Sun! She cried & begged! But Jung Sun told her that everything between her & that man is over!

 

Ep 30 continues with Mother & Jung Sun & then the scene switch to the stair case environment! Jung Sun tells Sung Jun that she has something to tell him & let's talk later! Yu Ri overhears them & hurry to Sung Jun & says caterin is ready & once the event is over, let's grab some dinner!

 

The scenes go on... (internet connection is very bad).. The Yu Ri meets up with a guy & srry, I don't know him! he says that Yu Ri seems different from other women so he would like to talk with her! Then he takes her to his younger siblings!

 

Then Yu Ri sees Jung Sun climb up the stairs & then the argue scene I uploaded above is happening! Jung Sun then walks down the stairs & Sees Sung Jun down there... She slowly walks away! Sung Jun goes up the stair & meet Yu Ri there.. She sounds threatening him...

 

And Jung Sun, Sung Jun & others go to the conference room & Yu Ri goes to the opposite direction...

 

Then the epic scene.. Yu Ri has nothing to do with pushing Jung Sun down the stairs!  There was a drunk VIP male member & Sang Woo tried to control him.. Then Jung Sun hurried back to them & the drunk guy tried to harrass her! Sang Woo fought back but he was hit by him... Then Jung Sun tried to save Sang Woo but she was pushed down the stairs by the drunk male! Everyone is shocked including Yu Ri... Sung Jun yelled at Sang Woo that what happened? And Jung Sun was taken to the hospital..

 

Then Yu Ri cried at her apartment! I dunno if it's because Jung Sun's accident or her dinner plan with Sung Jun got ruined because of Jung Sun! And he is with Jung Sun at the hospital!

 

Then the next morning, Jung Sun is awake! Sung Jun comes in & asks if she's ok! She plainly says OK! And then she says, "Sung Jun sshi, let's get this over with!" :o I've never heard her calling him sshi... The ep ends!

 

In the preview we see sadden Sung Jun more.. I dunno what's this series is heading to! :(

Still waiting for the recap and subs for today's episode...deep breaths...:persevere:

 

Thanks for informing us Soompiers of today's episode title, @SyH. That being said, the title of the second-last episode is "Were We Ever in Love"? Hasn't JS been asking herself and SJ this since Ep. 2, 3, 5, 7 or something? Why is the drama asking this now? WAE!!!!!!!!??????? :heartbreak:

 

It's already being said here, but I thought I'd say this again: One of the many things I'm thankful for being part of the Soompi community is that we can rant and commiserate together over the drama progression, sharing any conspiracy theories that assuage any of our dissapointment over said progression (thanks for reading our feedbacks and setting up the Conspiracy Theory poll, @triplem B)), and sharing (hilarious) rhetorical questions...such as the one posted by @partyon below:

It's D-Day people! Who's ready for the epic showdown?

 

...

 

Did YR push JS down the stairs?

Is JS pregnant?

Are the VP and SJ going to jail?

Will JS rip out YR's hair?

Will SJ dump YR and try to reconcile with JS?

Is JS having any of it or is she going to kick her husband in the ****?

Will SJ's facial impression ever change?

Who shot JR?

 

Stay tuned.... :D

 

 

Btw, sorry for cutting off the picture of D-Day, @partyon:sweatingbullets:

 

Back to the subject: Who's JR?!?!?!?!

 

If it's a mistypo for YR, then I could list some suspects:

  1. The VP's wife
  2. The VP's sister/chairwoman
  3. The VP (if his wife or family reveal a DNA/paternity test disproving YR's biological relations to the Ha family)
  4. SJ (ditto the VP)
  5. Director Bae (because...why not, what does he have to lose? -_-)

I'd rule out JS, since she has had several chances to publicly denounce YR (and SJ, for that matter) in front of the VIP team but she hadn't stoop down to that level.

Here, here, @TXviewer. You couldn't have said it any better...^gives virtual hugs and cookies/cakes made with rainbows, smiles, and NOT any of your Christmas cookies ingredients (that's on "that girl" :ph34r:).

 

Like you, I wouldn't have continued (re)watching VIP- and thus revisit the Soompi forums since last year- if it weren't for you and the rest of the lively Soompi community. So I'm thankful to be part of your "therapy group" (and the Soompi community), and hopefully your husband continues holding your hand as you (and us Soompiers/viewers) brave through this "tepid adultery/mistress" soap opera.

 

In case if I cannot visit the Soompi thread due to family gatherings tomorrow, I wish you a "Very Merry Christmas" and Happy New Year", and I hope to see you (and the Soompiers) again!

I have a question and I am not sure if it has been addressed, yet. When did SJ character switch to the dark side? Was it before dating JS or during their marriage? Why did he switch? Was he like this from the get go? 

 

I take it back I have questions, questions, and moer questions.

So, is it just me or this series isn't as intense as we really thought it would be??! I expected more havoc from Jung Sun but nothing so far happened! I wonder if I regret watching this series! :(

 

But what if Park Sung Jun loses both Na Jung Sun & On Yu Ri at the end??! Then it would be the best punishment a cheating husband can ever have... Don't we need some relief like so??! Otherwise VIP would be just another mere private office melo to its viewers! :mellow:

@smhelen

excellent question! 
I wish they would provide some incite as to his going over to the dark side. Unfortunately, I don’t think we will get the answer.

 

I want JS to ditch him, but I want SJ to ditch YR. I don’t want to give YR the satisfaction of dumping SJ. She, in my opinion, plotted all along to break up the marriage. She took advantage of his vulnerability and swooped in for the kill. (Yes, I know....he should have gone home to his wife:unsure:

I am old :huh:. JR was that main guy in Dallas, a very old series. There was a big hype on who shot him, since most wanted him dead... then it turned out to be a minor character whose absence is of no consequence.

Now almost everyone wants YR charged with attempted murder, it turned out to be a drunk. Another JR type.

 

edit: I think ep 7-8 were the climax. Revealing the identity of the mistress.

I think it's a reference to an American tv show Dallas, from the the 80's. The popular character JR Ewing was killed (shot) at the end of a season. The whole next season was a whodunit because presumably everyone had motive to kill him. Back before the days of the internet everyone was water cooler talking about "Who shot JR?"

 

I think it may have all been because the actor was in contract negotiations that didn't go well for him. Spoiler - he proved by to be very popular, and then did join the show again the subsequent year, where the being shot and killed was explained as being all a "bad dream". I seem to remember that waking up from a dream may have been a shower scene.

 

I think I'm showing my age, though in my defense I was too young to watch the show at the time.

I have become ambivalent over those two. JS (and not JR :phew:) evolving and leaving the murky water is what I want

JS is not JR.

If the writer thinks she can just wake up and make me feel sorry for SJ in the next episode, well, she's doing a good job but I still want JS to let go.

Time to move on Honey.
