“Encounter” will tell the story of Cha Soo Hyun, a woman who has never been able to make decisions for her own life, and Kim Jin Hyuk, a free and pure soul. With the premiere date finally here, here are three things to look for in “Encounter.”
The meeting of Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum! Anticipated chemistry!
The first thing to watch for will be the meeting of Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum. Anticipation was high since their casting was announced, and they are both actors who have made viewers’ hearts race with every new production. Many are interested to see what kind of chemistry they will create together.
Song Hye Kyo will emanate a soft charisma as Cha Soo Hyun, the head of Dong Hwa Hotel who has always lived a life planned out by other people as the daughter of a politician. Meanwhile, Park Bo Gum will play Kim Jin Hyuk, who has always lived an ordinary life but is happy and positive, and values everything he has. With the two main characters living such different lives, it will be interesting to see how the two change through each other’s influence and grow closer together.
Detailed and sophisticated cinematography (featuring Cuba)
The second thing to watch for in “Encounter” will be the direction of producing director (PD) Park Shin Woo. He has already been recognized for his detailed and sophisticated directing in previous works such as “Don’t Dare to Dream (Jealousy Incarnate),” “Angel Eyes,” “Queen of Ambition,” and “Ghost.” He will help the romance between Cha Soo Hyun and Kim Jin Hyuk, a woman trapped in a castle and the man who bravely reaches a hand out to her, blossom with his detailed direction and beautiful cinematography.
This will be the first time a Korean drama is shot in Cuba, and the vintage areas and bright colors of the area will help elevate the drama. Cha Soo Hyun and Kim Jin Hyuk meet by chance in Cuba, and their story will play out like a beautiful dream.
A traditional emotional melodrama
The third thing to watch for in “Encounter” is the fact that it’s a traditional emotional melodrama. “Encounter” will focus on a romantic love story that makes viewers’ hearts race. With its poetic story and character developments, the drama hopes to be relatable and satiate viewers’ desire for romance. After meeting in a foreign land by chance, Cha Soo Hyun and Kim Jin Hyuk will begin to grow a sweet and beautiful romance that will bring warmth to viewers this winter.
