As far as I'm aware there is no evidence the writer changed anything due to audience response. The drama wrap party was on October 29th and the drama started airing on October 28th so I very much doubt anything was changed due to public opinion. 

Ya, there is no way she could have changed anything.

I woke up in the middle of the night and remembered the roll of film that he found in the box. How long ago did we use cameras with rolls of film? I also remembered, that in his college days he liked to take pictures. I wonder what is on the film. Whatever it is , it has made him sad! It made him realize how much he had changed. From a guy who liked to watch a beautiful sunrise; to a guy who betrayed his wife....and for what?

Since my relatives haven't arrived yet at my house, I still have time for one more (minor?) ranting on Ep. 15 and the overall drama progression.

 

If the screenwriter really wanted a "different", "fresh" affair drama, then she/he should have gotten some inspiration from @Ameera Ali's gem post right here (sorry for not quoting your post @Ameera Ali...I believe the Soompi forum policy does not allow direct quoting of posts containing any pics, Instagram posts, etc.). Now that's one hilarious take on SJ's ineptitude in getting a handle on his two leading ladies in his life. Oh, how the tables have turned; all this time, YR was looking for the better "half of the whole"...JS (or is the other way around? Oh well...:P) !

EDIT: More ranting BEFORE watching the finale...

VIP is actually a pre-produced drama, they wrap everything before the first episode.

If they are still filming, and they got such strong negative reaction to Yuri, they probably wont keep trying to portray how pitiful Yuri is lol.

 

Highly agree. And btw, I saw some posts about how this screenwriter is NOT trying to make us the audience sympathize with YR or SJ. If that's the case, then why is YR getting more (unnecessary) screentime with her "woe is me", passive-aggressive crying scenes in recent episodes, while the realistically flawed AND more compelling characters HA and MN are getting LESS screentime despite them representing- but still fighting back against- the common work and social discrimination in a patriarchal society like South Korea that women face even in 2019?

 

Oh well, better wait for the reactions, recaps, and subs of the finale before venting on the overall drama progression...

 

Happy Holidays!!!! :heart:

Hello friends... Just watching the not-so-good live stream & can't believe that today is the last day...

 

Spoiler

 

I've missed out so many parts but saw a scene where Jung Sun met her mom! Mom said that she feels fine as she got to see her daughter & then offered her with money or something! Jung Sun accepted it & walked away calmly! I feel that something has changed in her life for a good way..

 

Then Yu Ri & Sung Jun having having dinner & she said she feels good to be with him & whatnot... Then asked about him! He said he also feels fine & then Yu Ri said that he is lying.. :o Then I missed out a few minutes &  then Sung Jun said Soorry & YU Ri began crying, crying & crying!! Did he say to break up??! :o

 

First half is over!

 

In second half, there is a scene of Sung Jun & VP! Sung Jun thanked him & a lot more..

 

Then the happy family of Song Mi Na, her hubby & two kids! They are really lovely! Her husband is a real gentleman! :wub:

 

Then there are Jung Sun & Sung Jun at the dinning table! She looks calm yet stiff & independent! They had a long talk & lastly he said that he wants her to have a nice life, honestly! And then his goods are all packed & in the next morning he finds the photo reel! 

 

And wow, then he gets the photos & reminds of the beautiful days with Jung Sun! Walking under the snow streets, holding her hand, she feeding him while driving & a lot.. Then he burst in to crying!! :tears: Then a train just passing by.. I think it indicated that the time has passed!

 

Yes, Hyun Ah & her boyfriend have moved in to another place... Song Mi Na's baby has born! :wub:

 

Then a happy gathering of VIP ladies! And we see On Yu Ri comes back to Korea & she looks alone... 

 

A scene where Sang Woo cheers up Jung Sun at office!

 

Then Jung Sun visited a funeral & happened to see Sung Jun there.. Then they walk along under the snow & talking... Jung Sun said that it's a relief for her to see him again! He said Thank you! Really, Thank you! And they both said to each other that please, live well! And Jung Sun walks away.. Then the scene changes to a bird eye view.. :( Jung Sun & Sung Jun walk in opposite directions..! :neutral: She goes away from him & he goes away from her... 

 

The end!

good grief....that’s all and only 30 minutes are left!
 

My hope for a decent ending are crashing!

 

@gm4queen

 

Thank you for your replay. No Spoiler for me. It helped me to prepare my heart for what I will see when I watch the finale.

 

At the end, I am glad that I can see that they are both able to move on with their lives while wishing each other well.

 

Really, there was no other reasonable ending to this drama.

 

Right now, I have mixed emotions about VIP. I am going to take sometime to digest what happened before making a final judgement.

Keep 'em coming @gm4queen! While we are at it, I also agree with @madinked about how dazzling JNR looked in the hospital.

 

JNR is one of those actresses who is blessed (or cursed) with youthful looks. Being super petite further contributes to that youthfulness. And her previous roles always have elements of naivete, foolishness and immaturity. In VIP, her character has been elevated to a serious, professional career woman (never have I seen her wearing stilettos as much as she has in this drama!). JS is a very mature role. I stayed with this drama because I felt the emotions she conveyed. Despite her acting here being more subdued than her previous dramas. It feel like watching JNR grow up.

 

Congratulations JNR! I hope you keep continue getting offers for awesome roles such as JS.

Aw that dialogue between sung jun and jinho hits me really hard.

 

"I wanted to do well and go to the top. That is the only thing I could do as a poor born person. Maybe I wanted to show it to Jung-sun and to everyone. When I was on the edge, I should have made a decision. I thought this should be okay. But my choice was far away from the edge. When I woke up, I was far away. But, actually this is good. i can stop here."

 

 

 

This is a real person problem when you are poor and want to taste the top.

 

when you thought you are doing your best but instead you are far away.

 

i know from the start that sung jun dont even have a real feeling for yuri it just taste of pitiful from him. 

 

both moving on maybe on of the idealistic conclusion with sung jun finding peace with himself and jung sun finding her own life 

 

Imo with this kind of ending it actually open up possiblity for second season or sequel.

 

Its an open ending and open up possibilty on their next life after divorce and possibly their reconcile. It can be a new whole drama moving on from VIP theme itself. 

 

More like melodrama

It's really nice story. But I was hoping that SJ will run towards JS at the end. 

So you wanted them to work things out?  I don't think you are alone. I keep wondering if i could get back with him after finding out everything about him and all the hurt he caused...nope, couldn't do it.  His character is to dishonest and shady.  I do believe he loves his wife and he will regret all of the decisions he made but he will be like his mother, alone with regret.
