Seems like K-netz and international netz are in agreement about the way this drama turned out and the acting from Lee Sang Yoon ( •᷄_•᷅ ) (it's cracking me up there is basically an emoji for his acting in this drama now:lol::lol::lol:)

 

I feel bad for laughing along, but that emoji is such a succinct description of his acting in this role! He had a couple of emotional crying scenes at the end, but it was a little to late. Jang Nara should definitely be winning an award or two with her performance. She's world class.

If they decide to do a season two or three then this is not a bad ending because there's a lot they can still build on, but if this is the end, then2019 has truly been the year of fizzle... I will take a low picture quality 2005 drama any day of the week!

I agree with most of what you said but I think having their last meeting at a funeral was a good choice. It symbolises them laying their marriage to rest and moving on. They’ve both found peace with where they’re and now they can fully let go of each other. It’s quite melodramatic but it’s fitting for the drama. 

Agreed. It signified the complete end of whatever they once had.

 

Another comment I saw also pointed out after the funeral in Episode 1 (back when JS thought she knew the man she married) they were walking together under the same umbrella heading in the same direction.  Now in the final episode (and SJ's lies have been exposed) they are heading away from each other in completely different directions under separate umbrellas.  It's over.

I so agree! I still laugh at the K-netizen comment about how in the scene in episode 13 when Jung Sun fought with Yu Ri Sung Jun was just standing there and looking on like it was "other people's business" :lol::lol::lol: Like, dude, this is YOUR fault and you are still ( •᷄_•᷅ ) like a mildly concerned bystander!:lol:

 

Jang Nara was phenomenal.  Very impressed with pretty much all of the actors especially the other VIP ladies Lee Chung Ha and Kwak Sun Young.

 

By the end, I thought the big twist might be he was actually diagnosed with some kind of personality disorder or something because his blank faced reactions and callous behaviour especially towards his own wife of 10 years throughout the majority of the drama was just incomprehensible to me.  Still don't know if it was just questionable acting by LSY or a directorial decision by the production team and LSY to make his character a blank-faced automaton on top of all his other negative character traits.

I think JS looked ok but I don’t think SJ looked like he was ok. When she asked how he was he didn’t answer but asked about her instead. My guess his heartbreak will never go away, because regardless of what he brought on himself he loved JS and probably always will. Sad I was really looking for some redemption and a happy ending for SJ and JS.

Im still a big fan of Lee Sang Yoon and I think his acting was to leave us hanging as to how he was really feeling. I’ve seen him in other dramas and it was clear what he was feeling. The flat affect in this role was clearly what the director wanted.

 

Merry Christmas to you all and thank goodness for Crash landing on you ...it’s helping to heal my heart. Hugs to you all from Philadelphia The City of Brotherly Love. “God Bless Us Everyone”

Hope it doesnt lead to suicides, which are common nowadays when actors/actresses/singers get bashed, slammed viciously.  They are paid to perform not to be criticised & get hated by viewers. Very childish, guess it's natural to love the "good" and hate the "bad". Some are getting too personal to take it to reality when rotten eggs are thrown at them in public. Peace be with you & dont instill hatred but harmony.

Well, the story is over...for the ending wasn't a disappointment.  The 2 side couples came out on top and JS became free.  The 3 baddies got what was coming to them.  For all the anxiety over the last many weeks i kind of sadly sighed at the end watching the 2 umbrellas walk in different directions.  I will say, watching PSJ scene with the photos of his life with JS was heartbreaking,  as he let out his feelings of regret.  It was a great drama with great character portrayals.  Saying goodbye to it, i feel satisfied and sad all at the same time. MERRY christmas to everyone!!! And thanks for going along this on this ride!

walking away from him.  He stood and watched her for a little while then turned and left.  I also feel sad and disappointed that they did not manage to work things out.  I will just have to think in my mind that they met later and both had not married because they still have feelings for each other.  That's the only ending I want to see.

Darn the writer, I would have thought she gives some consideration to the romantists and have them share a drink in a roadside plastic covered stall. Then it would mean a gleam of hope even to see them walkaway.
 

Let's face it she's jealous of successful beautiful women from wealthy families.  :) She also has a soft spot for someone like YR.

 

BTW, I was right about the VPs wife marrying him for other than love- it is her father. Now she can divorce him. How so very nice.

i havent posted in soompi for probably more than a year but i decided to post again after watching VIP...omg...what a great drama! amazing script, i never missed an episode and always looked forward in watching this....i just shed alot of tears in the last episode especially the ending..all the characters and their development is great...

 

i felt regretful for the main couple’s ending...though they are bound to get divorced because he deserves it, but at the same time i hurt for the female lead, i know how much he means the world to her, she suffered the most...i felt all her emotions throughout the series and at some point i also wanted her to get revenge and bring him down but im glad it turned out the way it did so she can feel at peace...coz she never wants to hurt him anyway, it was because she was very hurt and angry at that time...but her love is greater than her hate towards him....i like how this drama really empowers women...

 

i still feel very sad at the end though, just like the female lead she probably feels just as sad coz she was in the verge of tears when they were parting ways and he also looks regretful....such a pity all the lovely years they’ve been through as a couple....how it all came down to that, i felt so heartbroken, how can he let that happen...tsk...

 

anyway, i recommend this drama! this is one of those rare dramas that i start and finish till the end without skipping any episode or stopping mid-way..i hope korea will continue to make remarkable dramas like this with such depth to every character and storyline.

I watched the entire drama, but up to now I'm still clueless if SJ ever really love JS. I see him being regretful for having destroyed "supposedly happy perfect marriage" but LOVE I don't see it.

He may have love YR more?!

I'm not crying:bawling:. The finale was perfect and bittersweet for me. This is gonna be a long post lol:sweatingbullets:.

 

I'm happy MN gets to keep her job while her sweet husband took a parental leave. I was ROFL when he found out he is having another son again lol:lol:. Poor guy:mrgreen:. This is one couple who worked out their marriage and will do fine in the future with their kids.

 

HA gets her happiness too. She came a long way from the beginning of the drama:wub:. She really deserved the happiness she got from her boyfriend and work now. As for the other friend ( I forgot her name) , I'm sorry I suspected you as SJ mistress lol:lol:

 

SW, what are you doing to the rookie lol:sweat_smile::joy:? Did you forgot that you were in his position gossiping couple of months ago:mrgreen:? JS, MN and HA faces were priceless:lol:. At least, he grow up and doing his job lol:sweatingbullets:.

 

VP got what he deserved. First, his reputation was ruined thanks to the stocks he collected illegally and his daughter being a mistress. Second, SJ literally dumps him lol ( I was laughing when dude is like: take a break and we will get back on our feet. And SJ is like nope, I'm done Imao:lol:). You would think SJ was his wife :joy: with the way he got hurt when he was turned down ROFL. And finally, he is at the mercy of his wife lol:lol:. I felt sorry for her ( The look on her face) when VP said to her that she is the only one left on his side. It's probably something she wanted to hear from him for a really long time yet he chose to screw around with multiple women and didn't respect her as his wife. She is gonna make his life a living hell and I'm happy with that:smirk:.

 

YR got nothing and I'm sure she will live like an empty shell for the rest of her life. Her reputation was ruined, her father doesn't need her anymore. Not to mention, now that he is at his wife's mercy, her stepmom will make sure to make her life a living hell lol. And most of all, she was dumped:lol: ( Sorry honey, but I don't believe you are the one who is doing the dumping there:smirk:). Oh god, was I so happy when she realized she can't replace JS:mrgreen:. Karma is a b$"#$$@:thumbsup:

 

SJ screwed up big time and he will pay the consequences for a really long time. He was glad and relieved when things blow up because he finally has a chance to break free and make a better choice than before. Like JS mom said, she regretted it and he will. And he did at the end. It's kinda of sad to see how the choices you make thinking that you are right on your choice and people will look up to you can lead you to losing your precious people and end up ruining your life. SJ may look like he didn't pay any price for the affair and living a comfortable life afterwards; but truthfully, he isn't. 

 

For the first time, JS and SJ sat down and talked with divorce papers between them. They both pointed out what went wrong with their marriage. one thing JS said was that she only saw what she wanted to see in him while SJ admitted that he couldn't open up to her and the marriage fallout wasn't her fault. I'm glad he told her she did her part and best in their relationship and he was the one at fault. She really needed to hear that:tears:.

 

JS is doing her best to move on with her life afterwards. Like she told her motorcycle friend, she wants to be happy on her own first before she meets someone new again. I'm glad she met SJ again and walked away with a peace on her face. How ironic like some Chingus pointed with the last scene. It ended the way it started but they are going their separate ways now. I'm really sad about how their relationship turned out:bawling:. It's truly over:tears:....

 

This drama was crazy, long but had a satisfactory ending for me. Whatever theories I cooked up in my head, went to the garbage bin by the end of episode 12 lol. So much for thinking this drama wasn't only about an affair lol. I feel stupid thinking he was running an escort services and there was a big secret plan to take down the VP:skull:. I watch too much crime shows lol:sweat_smile:.  Next time, I'm gonna stick to the character descriptions lol. First time I have seen a drama stick to it:mrgreen:

 

Thanks everyone for the posts, the recap and laughs lol. I'll see you all around somewhere:glasses:.

I was initially super excited for this drama because I thought the pairing of Jang Nara and Lee Sang Yoon was quite interesting. I may have had high expectations when the summary seemed enticing and different from the usual. But the first few episodes were SLOW. didn't like how the first episode was laid out; it tried so HARD to be suspenseful and I wanted the visual storytelling to get to a point. The camera followed each pathway of each character. WHO IS THE UNKNOWN GIRL WHO IS HAVING AN AFFAIR? 

I was thinking of dropping this drama until I saw the episodes 3-8 Series Review on Dramabeans. It changed my mind on how I viewed and experienced the drama. This drama tells the story about JUNG SUN, a female character, and NOT Sung Jun. I am so used to a story told in a male centric point of view, but this time I see JUNG SUN. And better, we have THREE unique female characters in the cast. They are not typical innocent candy characters who smile and act optimistic all the time. 

I love Jung Sun because she is a woman of steel. She stands her ground. She breaks down when she needs to do so. AND THEN SHE STANDS ON HER OWN AGAIN. She fights back and she finds her inner peace when she needs to. I can see why Jang Nara endears this character and I am glad she picked this role which is different from...let's say Fated to Love You's Kim Mi Young.

I am glad there were so many shots and scenes of the female characters dominating the cast. Something I don't really see in the Korean drama world. Yes, we have Search: WWW, but even then there was a strong male gaze, not a female gaze. Encounter tells a story about how the female lead character, but her character growth was dependent on the male lead. SO I AM EFFIN HAPPY THAT JUNG SUN EXISTS IN THE DRAMA WORLD. And I am glad we finally have a male lead who is vulnerable, fragmented, lost and confused; it's different from the typical male lead saves the female. The male is perfect and the female is imperfect. I am done with this story.

So props to the director and cast...the entire crew of this drama. They did justice to the storytelling.

 

And I don't know why...even until this last episode, I wanted something makjang. like Yoori was the VP's mistress. lol I guess I'll leave it up to my imagination. haha
