Tears Flow as Everyone Tries to Clean House in Penultimate Episode 15 of Encounter


I find tvN Wed-Thurs drama Encounter (Boyfriend) petering out for me emotionally, and without even the how will it end curiosity that sustained me into the black abyss that was the end of Memories of Alhambra. Encounter actually makes a lot of narrative, too much so that it’s in dullsville territory because we know Soo Hyun and Jin Hyuk need to break up and figure out their own life issues at this juncture. I don’t think they NEED to stay broken up and this drama is one with a natural sad ending, I think he’s too idealistic (doesn’t help that when he cries he seriously looks 16 years old) and she’s still too scared so the break is good for their own development at this point in life, but they are really so suitable in the long term they should get back together. Maybe that is why I’m not that worried and invested in their breakup, this feels like the right thing that will work out in the end for all the good people in this drama.
