As much as I disliked the character PSJ, my heart aches for what LSY is going through. I will be watching “Masters in the House” and his new show when it starts.

I need to rewatch episode 98 of MITH, and see him smiling and laughing as he reels in his big catch!:kiss_wink:

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the thread for the discussions, for the analysis, for the laughter, for the rants and for sharing the experience of watching this drama. I feel like I wouldn't have made it through this drama with my sanity and nerves intact without you all:lol:

 

Despite my disappointment with some of the choices the drama which I have discussed at length in previous posts overall I was content with how this ended with a strong, free, independent Jang Sun who can walk away from her ex-husband with her head held high and looking forward to a bright future.  I feel like the scene in episode 16 of Jang Sun walking up the steps alone and at peace is a great metaphor. 

 

I do love that this drama explored the lives of working women from Hyun Ah confronting her sexual assault and opening up to a new relationship to the very relatable surprisingly progressive ending for working mother Mi Na. And the always fun Ji Young with her astute observations. Even the CEO who defeated her brothers and called the bluff on her father's expectations. 

 

Most of all, I will miss these four great ladies and their friendship

 

Preview translation episode 14 and episode 13 review

And a shout out to the good men of V.I.P. who served as such a refreshing contrast to spineless Sung Jun:D

A little late, but here are my final thoughts on VIP.  

 

Although I got what I wanted, which was JS giving SJ the divorce, I thought the ending was pretty weak.  The ending could have been so much better if SJ’s character in the last episodes was written differently.  SJ never realized that his own weaknesses and insecurities were the reasons for his affair and for his poor decision making with the VP.  

 

In SJ’s last conversation with his friend, he blamed JS for the bad decisions he made at the company.  SJ told his friend that he did those unscrupulous things with the VP because he was trying to prove his worth to JS and others by moving to the top.  What?  JS only loved him!  SJ was trying to prove to himself that he was as good as JS and others.

 

In what was supposed to be SJ’s honest conversation with JS after he took a wrecking ball to their marriage, he never told JS about himself.  JS brought it up.  After which, SJ blamed JS for keeping the fact that he was born from an affair a secret.  He told JS he couldn’t tell her about his birth from an affair because he knew how JS felt about her mother abandoning her after having an affair.  What?  SJ didn’t tell her because he was ashamed of who he was!

 

In SJ’s last conversation with the VP, he told the VP that he (depending on the translation) respected/admired him?  What? That left me scratching my head.  

 

In the last scene with YR, SJ should have initiated the break up. Although it was never said explicitly, SJ had figured out that YR was a colossal mistake that he felt stuck with.  At least YR grew enough that when she was faced with the truth, she analyzed the situation and realized she had to cut her losses with SJ.  Wow!  Even the pitiful, helpless mistress had more guts than SJ.

 

SJ was the only central character in this drama that did not grow and he was a real piece of work!   He remained the same selfish, sorry, reactionary character he was from the start.  This is why I personally do not want to see a VIP Part 2.  I don’t trust these writers to put SJ and JS back together only for SJ to leave her a second time for YR because YR comes back to Korea with SJ’s child.   The writers left the end open in such a way that I can imagine this scenario if there was a VIP Part 2.  <_<

 

What a ride!  Really entertaining overall!

Which episode was it that showed JS getting a company loan for HA? Thanks.

Hi! It's in episode 5.  About 45 minutes into the episode JS and HA have a chat after the meeting where Jiyoung makes a stand against the new forced sales tactics for the concierge managers.

Totally agree about SJ's character! Selfish and still blaming JS for HIS mistakes and issues until the end.  I was flabbergasted by the scene with the VP with SJ acting as if he was so noble when he was already up the creek without a paddle anyway because their shady business deals had been blown wide open. And after all the nasty things the VP has done, including to his own wife, SJ still admires him.  What a pathetic specimen Sung Jun is!

The VIP cast had a little reunion to watch the final episode last week (looks like Lee Sang Yoon arrived late so he missed actually watching the drama lol)

Jang Nara's tears at the end:tears:

Lee Chung Ha and Jin Ho's character getting all shy about their hugging scene :lol:

Kwak Sun Young (Mi Na) cut her hair so I didn't recognise her at first!:lol:

Seems like the cast and staff are so close.  Hope they all keep in touch :)

Watch: “VIP” Cast Wows With Incredible Chemistry And Friendship Behind The Scenes

“VIP” Cast Wows With Incredible Chemistry And Friendship Behind The Scenes

Dec 31, 2019
by R. Jun
 

In a new behind-the-scenes reel for SBS’s recently-concluded drama “VIP,” the cast of the drama showed off their incredible chemistry and close relationships to each other.

 

The video starts with footage of Jang Nara and Lee Sang Yoon doing a photo shoot for their wedding photo props.

Later, Lee Sang Yoon expresses fascination with how the drip coffee machine works, while the director quips, “The fact that you’re curious about this is what’s amazing.”

 

The actor’s next object of interest is the cutting board, and when he finds out that it is over 1 million won (approximately $860), his jaw drops in surprise. He later comments, “The house is so nice!” and Jang Nara responds, “It is. I didn’t know we were this rich.”

 

The cast, especially Jang Nara, has fun watching Lee Chung Ah and Jung Joon Won’s on-screen relationship unfold. Lee Chung Ah says to Jang Nara, “Why are you so happy about this?” and Jang Nara says, “Let me live vicariously through you.”

 

Rehearsing for the scene right after Jang Nara’s character has fallen down the stairs, the cast starts laughing. Kwak Sun Young slaps Lee Sang Yoon on the shoulder, and he in turn slaps Jang Nara’s shoulder, telling her to wake up. Jang Nara responds by kicking Lee Sang Yoon in the side, making everyone laugh even harder. He says to the director, “Did you see her kick me?” Turning to Jang Nara, Lee Sang Yoon says the kick was captured on camera, and Jang Nara responds, “It’s because [the slap] hurt.”

 

Lee Sang Yoon jokes, “I should have flown back when she kicked me.”

Pyo Ye Jin won "Character of the Year"
I think that's fair. Even if I wasn't impressed by her acting,Yu Ri was certainly character people were talking about
 
I'm really disappointed as it doesn't seem like Kwak Sun Young (Mi Na) was nominated. She was so good:tears:
 
Apparently, Shin Jae Ha was nominated for Best Rookie but didn't win :(

You are right! I am disappointed as well. Jang Nara truly deserve the Daesang too! Anyhow, congratulations to all the winners!

I'm not even sure what the Producer Award is!  I can't help but feel like it's a kind of consolation prize for not getting the Daesang:persevere:

Yes, kind of! But it seems the award is higher in category this year compared to last year. I feel that Jang Nara should have the TOP Excellence then if Daesang is not for her ( we are talking about “acting” here and she is really brilliant as Jung-Sun). It would have been really nice if she shared it with Kim Nam Gil. She is equally deserving!

Right! I think they should have just given her Top Excellence then because that is for top acting and her acting was the top!  Maybe I'm wrong because I don't really get what the Producer Award is but it just seems like they are trying to make up to her for not giving her the Daesang.  I'm happy for Kim Nam Gil as he is an excellent actor but I do wish Jang Nare could have won alongside him. She was phenomenal as Na Jung Sun.
