Marriage not dating synopsis ep 1 Read story when gong ki tae memaksa dirinya tidak tertarik untuk segera. Malayalam sex health rage gay: for engaged couples preparing for the.

Very rarely do I love a series all the way through but this definitely ranks up there as a show that's perfect to binge-watch on a rainy day.

It's too bad that the guests did not get to hear their vows, but one of the sweetest parts about this episode is that the audience got to hear those vows during the second proposal when Ki Tae promised to do his best to love her forever and Jang Mi promised to trust him. Their affection for each other is real and palpable and not just for show.

Maybe cos i have sons. Same here. I cried, then ran to the kitchen to make my sons' favorite chicken dish Cutting this into two since my comment is too long! Sigh, the episode I hate commenting on most is the last. Because it just means I gotta accept that the end is here. But oh well I loved this show; I didn't for a moment think it lowered its level and even if I started seeing it late, I totally feel the withdrawals.

This last episode is my favourite I think, mostly because the family ties are so well addressed rather than sugar coated. I loved that Jang-mi's parents aren't suddenly romantic and that Ki-tae's mom decided to live with the women who's been by her side through it all. I just see it happening in real life to these characters who seem so real and alive themselves. Everyone felt organic rather than puppets controlled by a master. I really started hating Se-ah somewhere in the middle, but I'm glad she was redeemed quickly.

While I know a majority of you guys felt her character changed too abruptly, I think her main personality remained the same. She was still controlling but maybe focused on another target - first it was to get Ki-tae back, then it was to make Ki-tae's life perfect. I'm glad she got her happy ending even if I really expected the father of the child to be Yeo-rim. As for Yeo-rim, I was really sad he left the restaurant because I felt his bond with both Jang-mi and Ki-tae was way more powerful than some temporary jealousy.

But in a drama that focuses on characters being realistic, its good that he's moving on because eventually things happen, people change as well as circumstances. I also really loved the portrayal of friendship and loyalty here. It's actually very understated and sometimes ignored with many other things happening, but it's one of my favourite cts. They all looked out for each other, were there when the other person needed a shoulder.

Marriage, Not Dating Mv - Heartbeat

Everyone has a different connection and they aren't bonded as a group but more so individually. It's just so awesome. And finally Ki-tae and Jang-mi. I feel like I've said everything I wanted to about how great they are together and as individuals. But I can probably go on forever.

Instead, I'll just say the reason I love them so much is because Yeon Woo-jin and Han Groo are just so good at portraying them. Their chemistry was intense yet warm, blazing yet comfortable, easy yet charming. Both are ridiculously talented and I expect great things from them in the future. I hope they get a chance to be main leads in network channels and take on bigger challenges. Definitely the breakout stars of the year for me. I've never seen them in anything before and I'm just so mighty impressed.

I can probably carry on, but I'll stop lol. I love this show and I hope that those who haven't seen it yet will give it a try. I'll miss it, but endings like these make me feel like they all exist in the world I live, just that maybe I won't get to see them onscreen anymore. That makes me feel better actually, which in turn makes me feel delusional LOL. Han Groo is awesome! TvN seems to really like wedding scenes in their dramas this year. They seemed so mature in this drama. Jin Woon needs to work on his acting.

He needs to loosen up and act more natural. There is nothing more intimidating than a flock of meddling ahjummas. I can't help but wonder how it feels for Yeon Woo-jin and Han Groo to go from having so much skinship with one another while shooting the drama and, as we know, the real time far exceeds the reel time to none presumably after the drama wrapped. Their pheremones must feel confused! I'm excited for both of the leads and enjoyed them each immensely in this, but I've got to give extra props to Han Groo for being such a natural at the physical comedy.

still variants? congratulate

Anyway, they made a delightful OTP that I shall remember fondly for a long time. I super loved that Mom, Grandma, and Aunt were equally thrilled about staying together and giving Dirtbag the boot. Especially in the context of Korean family values. I would've liked to have seen Jang Mi and Ki Tae's Mom enjoying a newfound bond with one another on this ep. Loved the series. Marathoned it in 2 days. Always wanted to check it out coz the first episode recap sounds really good and am glad I get to marathon it instead.

Thanks for the recaps. I agree that both leads really gave their best in their roles Hopefully they will move on to bigger and better projects. Thing is I feel that cable sometimes used lesser known actors who doesn't command the same buzz but somehow produces better results. It's telling that a number of cable dramas are actually more entertaining than the ones on the main stations.

It's a peculiar trend but as long as us viewers remain the beneficiaries MnD finally finished. Man, those aunts of GiTaes are so damn annoying. They don't live with him one apparently lives in the USdon't keep up with the family I saw that look of surprise on their faces when Queen Mom told them their bro has a woman and yet they place all these ridiculous expectations on KiTae because "he's the sole family heir" and on their sister-in-law prepare for my dad's memorial while I wine and dine!!!!

There's a reason why you three were not invited, you know. What a fun wedding. Although, I would die if that happened to me. Usually, guests wait until after they get some alcohol in their system before they create a scene at your wedding, but nope, this was all sober. Such is Jang Mi and Ki Tae's life. At least the busybody Gong ladies now know about Dad's infidelity.

I was relieved Show didn't go down the cliche path of Jang Mi being pregnant when she threw up because I did not want a child to be a factor in his marriage proposal. Ki Tae and Jang Mi will go down as my all-time favorite couple. Their bubble bath flashback reel starting from the time they met to the time he fell for her brings tears to my eyes. They belong together. I cannot express how much I adore all the cute facial expressions Ki Tae makes. No one does it like Yeon Woo Jin.

I cannot think of any other actresses who could have embodied Jang Mi as well as Han Groo. One of my favorite character traits of Jang Mi came in episode 4 where she couldn't bring herself to half-ass the cooking even though the point was to mess up the memorial. As Ki Tae pointed out, "Why are you working so hard? Just burn everything," but her morals stopped her from doing that, and I love that about her. Also loved how Ki Tae peeled all those chestnuts after saying he wouldn't do it.

They both say they won't do it but do it anyways. Jang Mi and Ki Tae were so realistic even while everyone else around them was unrealistic. This was such an unexpectedly heartfelt drama that I will miss. Thank you for recapping it, girlfriday and LollyPip! If you watch it, you'll see that your above statement would make her very, very happy :. She is so multi talented! Never knew she was a singer. It shows that when she has something in mind she commits wholeheartedly to accomplish it.

Like in singing, diving and acting. She is in some ways like Jang Mi too, esp. Thanks for sharing, Chandler and alcoholicbubbletea!

I know she lived in China as a child, but her Mandarin is seriously so impressive. Han Groo was a guest on an old episode of Strong Heart where she revealed she debuted at 4 years old and talked about her boss Joo Young Hoon. Thank you for the recaps. It was what started me watching. And what a waste it would have been if I had missed it. What a breathe of fresh air. I totally love how messy, loud and chaotic the wedding scene was. It ended the way it started- everyone being a drama queen.

Love the stormy sky backdrop with the whole wedding tableau. Plus I've spent basically the whole drama admiring Han Groo's fantastic legs. Muscular and toned.

And no stilettos in sight. Agajdkslldnsnahajjsjd this is def the best romcom of It sits as my second favorite forever and this drama totally deserves a number one spot if only i wasnt so fond of my fangirling busan high schooler. I wanna thank all recappers and regular commenters i remember lessonlearn, chandler, harmonyfb, kim yoomi amongst some.

You guys made it so fun watching it and i like that even tho there are differing opinions theres never a comment war here. DB jjang! This drama seriously made me wanna follow korean dramas again. Ive been watching since full house days but i got so bored lately because shows are trying to be cool and different but this show, using the very same trope that got me hooked ten years ago, managed to end refreshingly.

Its weird how i dont feel the need to protest about otp getting together too long. I feel like they were just learning to see each other better with one wall falling after another as time passes. I even appreciate that it took them forever to acknowledge their feelings despite gitae actually falling for jangmi in like ep4. Its a very mature thing to portray that a relationship takes so long to happen. All in all, i now have an ideal relationship type thanks to this drama.

think, that you

I actually made lunch for my mother after gitae phone scene in ep. In ep Thanks MND. Youre just a drama but a ride with you makes me appreciate my life better and makes me want to be a nice person because jjm proves that being kind trumps all. Thank you for your recap of one of my favorite shows of the summer. My daughter asked me what show to watch.

I told her Marriage Not Dating because it's not your usual boy meets girl plot. Also, I told her that Han Groo looks like my cousin when she was young so she said she would definitely check it out.

Anyway, sad to see it come to an end. I enjoyed the beginning parts, middle dragged on with the secondary characters I didn't care about, but ending was quite different and refreshing. I'm especially glad that Ki Tae's mom finally had enough of Mr. Jerkface and asked for a divorce, the house, and told him to hit the road! I'm also liked it when the Grandma and Aunt commiserated with Ki Tae's mom and not the dad because they knew how much hurt and suffering she endured over the years.

They made the"Perfect Couple" for this funny, sometimes crazy and silly hi jinks of their two absolutely crazy families. What fun it was to watch this pair! I am still battling the tears as this show has come to an end and also the family relationships it has explored and unraveled.

Most touching moment - ki-tae mom accepting in laws and friends and wanting to continue living with them. I am very very very sad and I am now having withdrawals that this show has ended. I have watched eps 16 more than 5x already and has not gotten over it yet! Anyway, congratulations to all the people behind this great show.

I am now an instant fan of YWJ and HG, been watching all their previous projects Hope to see them again in their future projects as awesome as this.! One thing that hits me on this series is to appreciate all my loved ones for all their kinkiness, messiness and all their disorders since I for one is one I loved this show so much, love all the relationships, friendships, mother-son, mother-daughter, mother in law-daugther in law I just loved the scene of KT and his mom on the phone So loved the cuteness and sweetness overload of our OTP and that passionate kiss at the end, that nailed it so beautifully!

Ki Tae's mom started out as "that" Kdrama mom and turned into my hero. That, my friends, is what you call character development, and as usual Kim Hae Sook is fabulous!! It's finally over. Nevertheless, this will be one of my favorites of all time. There are just those dramas that you'd love to watch again and again.

I'm sure I'd keep watching and rewinding my favorite scenes. Jang Mi is the epitome of flawed but gorgeous. The ending was perfect and symbolic. Love and Marriage is not about the absence of rain but about holding and loving each other amidst the storm. YWJ and HG were perfect for their characters.

I hope I see them again in a drama I have had loads of fun and laughter watching this and didn't want it to end. What a fun and light-hearted series with a great ending. I'm just so happy that this show remained true to itself until the end. And that they weren't afraid to show the OTP kissing and touching like any normal couple thanks cable! Other dramas should follow the example: spend 2 episodes wrapping up everything nicely instead of rushing your ending in just 5 to 10 minutes.

I think that in part, Marriage Not Dating was so enjoyable because the lead actors were easy to relate to, not just because of their flaws, but also because they looked like normal people. Yeon Woo Jin, though adorable, doesn't have the abs of an idol or male model, and Han Groo is cute in a very natural way.

Yaaay episode 16 is out! But noooo the drama is over! I really really liked Marriage Not Dating, in fact, I would consider this one of my favorite dramas ever. I can't pinpoint exactly what it is that makes MND memorable for me.

mistaken. more modest

I think it has something to do with how honest and realistic the story is and how relatable the characters are and the situations that they go through. Of course, it is largely due to how good the main leads are in portraying their roles. She makes the funniest, most ridiculous facial expressions and it's greatly part of the reason why Joo Jang Mi is such a flawed yet completely lovable character.

I would say I personally don't find her to be typically pretty but she has something about her that makes her quite attractive. She also has really nice toned legs, LOL. I will be sure to watch out for her future projects because this girl can act. I was surprised to learn that she's a er. She comes off as more mature than her real age. Actually, all the 3 female leads here appeared much more mature than their real ages, which isn't a bad thing.

Thank God I did, though, because I never would have discovered how good these two are. I loooved the cat meowing sound effects everytime Gi Tae and Jang Mi are about to do you-know-what stuff. And of course, no one can play a K-drama mom better than Kim Hae Sook. I really liked mom's scenes in this last episode especially when she finally let go of that perfect-wife exterior and finally eased up.

I'm happy she asked for the house and all three women teamed up to kick dad out, woohoo! Hoon Dong was quite annoying at the beginning but they quickly turned his character into one that you can't help but like despite his hopeless mama's boy syndrome. His interactions with Gi Tae, Jang Mi and his mom towards the latter parts of the show were some of the funniest bits in the show. I will miss it's simplicity, it's honesty, it's heart, it's perfect comedic timings, awesome OST, perfect leads, and realistic take on dating and marriage.

Of course it had its flaws, too, and I admit there were some moments that weren't as strong What's better is that I didn't have a lot of expectations going into this but ended up taking a lot out of. Wow, this is the longest comment I've made. Thank you everyone for the recaps and the fun discussions here on dramabeans! Here's to more good romcoms for the remaining months of ! Hopefully those two will be half as good, or better yet, be as good as MNR was!

Yes, I can see your point there. Li Da Ren was too spineless as a whole which got me frustrated at times. What I liked about the drama though were all the different elements that made it good - the friends, the parents, family members, the overall TvN feel, awesome soundtrack, takeaway lessons by the female lead at the end of each episode, common everyday yet fun dialogues and banters between the leagues, among others.

I think a reason why I really liked it was because it reminded me a lot of Reply It's like a mature, older version of it. Plus I really liked the OST, haha. You should check it out sometime, alcoholicbubbletea! Some parts may get dragging and frustrating though somewhere towards the latter half of the show but overall, I would say it's a pretty good drama.

Simple storyline yet great fun, just like Reply and MnD. The ending was perfect for this drama. Enjoyed it so much,i marathoned it in 3 days. Yeon Woo-Jin has turned me into a fan,looking forward to his next work. And in the scene where Jang Mi puked,i seriously thought that was the twist and she was pregnant. I know right? I was honestly waiting for the part where they'd show that Jang Mi was pregnant.

Puking in dramas usually only mean either pregnant, terminally ill or wasted. I will go rewatch this drama on rainy days. Or any days. Lollypip and Girlfriday - thank you so much for the recaps throughout this show's run. They not only gave us a little chatty haven for talktalktalking about all the things we loved and hated about this drama, but they added smart commentary about an already smart show.

I've said it before, but it bears saying once more: I'm going to really miss these characters, and this universe, and these fans. Who's with me for the rewatch? Hi harmonyfb, been re watching 2 days ago and i realized that the more i rewatched the more i am missing them?

I always love your recaps. They argue over which is better, closeness or solitude, until her phone rings. Jang-mi hides in the bathroom to talk, and Yeo-reum explains that what she saw was the tail-end of his charity date. Relieved, she agrees to meet him, but Ki-tae has locked her in the bathroom.

He refuses to let her out, since a guy will never like her if she goes running whenever he wants. In their struggle over the door, Jang-mi breaks the door handle and escapes, counterattacking: How can you find someone to be with, if you spend all your time alone? She yells that she never wants to be alone, and leaves. Grandma says she understands why Ki-tae wants to live alone, the way they treat him. He blames the ramyun, but she assumes Jang-mi is giving him a hard time and promises to talk to her.

Right onto the pancake. Jang-mi fills him in on what happened, and he tells her to go and heads to the hospital. Luckily Grandma is fine, only heavily sleeping off all the alcohol. Ki-tae angrily pulls Jang-mi aside to ask what she was thinking. Hurt, Jang-mi just quietly apologizes again and leaves. Ki-tae goes home and cleans up the mess, then relaxes in a hot bath and revels in his solitude once again.

Ki-tae spends 48 hours locked in the bathroom, reading, exercising, and fighting boredom. He weakens and hallucinates his friends and family saying how tired they are of him, knowing none of them will come and rescue him.

For a moment he perks up thinking of Jang-mi, but remembers their fight and loses hope. He lies on the floor and passes out, just as we saw him at the top of the episode.

something is

At home that night, Jang-mi breaks a glass and flashes back to being home alone as a child, where she broke a glass and cut her feet badly. As Jang-mi talks, Ki-tae rouses just enough to feebly call for help. She grabs a knife and pries the door open, dropping it when she sees him lying half-dead on the floor. She tries to rouse him, and he uses the last of his strength to clasp her in a tight hug.

A memorial feast is laid out in front of a photograph of a distinguished-looking older gentleman. Ki-tae falls into the memorial feast, scattering food everywhere, as a group of women try to hold Jang-mi off of him.

Jang-mi helps a weak and stumbling Ki-tae to his car, headed for the hospital, even hoisting him up for a piggyback when he proves too feeble to walk. They run into Se-ah, who was also worried and came to check on him, and Jang-mi explains how he was trapped in the bathroom for two days. Se-ah drives them to the hospital, barely containing her eyerolls as Jang-mi fusses over Ki-tae in the backseat. Jang-mi says his family is on the way, and Ki-tae asks Se-ah to go while telling Jang-mi to stay.

Jang-mi explains that he was locked in the bathroom and Ki-tae says she actually saved him, but only Grandma thanks her.

Aunt Mi-jung tells Mom that they should support them, if only because opposing the marriage will push Ki-tae towards Jang-mi even harder. Jang-mi protests but Mom says she should start racking up brownie points as early as possible. Their identical glares of disbelief are a riot. Some patrons make a rude comment to Jang-mi, and Mom kicks them out.

Mom pulls ready-to-go divorce papers out from under the register and prepares to sign, but Jang-mi stops her and agrees to help with the memorial. How impressively devious. All Jang-mi has to do is show her very worst self on the day of the memorial, and his mother will make him call off the engagement. It should be easyall she has to do is be herself. He follows them and when they stop for lunch, Ki-tae just plops himself down at the table with them.

He tries to intimidate Yeo-reum, who stays frustratingly unaffected. Ki-tae texts Jang-mi to be careful, that his aunt may be spying on them. Jang-mi and Yeo-reum sit in the park, but Jang-mi is too twitchy and paranoid to enjoy herself, worried that Aunt Mi-jung is watching.

Dad and the young woman look awfully cozy, trading kisses and endearments and walking arm-in-arm. Jang-mi is in shock, and cuts the date short. Left at the park, Yeo-reum sees Se-ah in her car and joins her. Se-ah asks what his relationship is with Jang-mi, but he just muses that she must be great because everyone seems interested in her.

Se-ah asks Yeo-reum to bring her information on the couple and offers him an envelope, which he accepts. At work the next day, Jang-mi considers whether she should tell Ki-tae that she saw his father with a woman.

Mom points out that in her family, the women do all the work to prepare the food. She tasks Jang-mi with peeling a massive bag of chestnuts that night, and tells her to be at their house early in the morning. She starts to tell Ki-tae that she saw his father with another woman, but he cuts her off. He suddenly turns cold and harsh and snaps at her to mind her own business, and it dawns on Jang-mi that he already knows. Jang-mi sarcastically apologizes and storms out.

This is war. Later, Jang-mi sits outside, doing all the cooking herself. Jang-mi finally finishes some time later, and jumps up to do an athletic victory dance. The women eat and talk while Jang-mi does the dishes alone, mumbling about the unfairness of it all.

It stops his aunt from listening in, but Jang-mi drops her phone in the sink and ruins it. Finally everything is ready, and dinner is solemn and dignified. Ki-tae decides Jang-mi is being too quiet and asks his father to pour her some alcohol, knowing it will make her start talking and most likely say something unacceptable.

Dad tries to calm her down and she rounds on him, calling him the worst of the family.

Jul 21,   Marriage Not Dating: Episodes by LollyPip. I love it. Marriage Not Dating is light, airy, and funny while also delivering a nice healthy dose of heart and depth. We're starting to get glimpses into characters' pasts that indicate that not everything is cuteness and romance in these people's lives, and I think the show is setting a nice balance between hilarious hijinks and real /5. Marriage not dating starring min han groo and know which play came first script reading took place may 30, list of the plot and. Subtitled in getting married and other info of the plot is a at professor hoot's. Marriage plot is a term used, often in academic circles, to categorize a storyline that recurs in novels most prominently and more recently in films. Until the expansion of the definition of marriage to include same-sex couples, this plot centered exclusively on the courtship rituals between a man and a woman and the obstacles that faced the potential couple on its way to the nuptial payoff.

Jang-mi starts to say that she saw him with a woman but Mom stops her, and pulls her aside. Jang-mi, hurt, says that she could have sworn she was family given how badly they treated her.

She overhears the women criticizing her parents, and asks Ki-tae with angry tears in her eyes if he told them about her family. Jang-mi snaps and starts to scream and hit Ki-tae. The women try to pull her off him, and they scuffle until he falls into the table covered in memorial offerings.

Jang-mi declares her work here done, and righteously stomps out of the house. She leaves him to face his family alone, and goes to meet Yeo-reum.

In the closed restaurant kitchen, Yeo-reum cooks up some pasta for Jang-mi, who does her best to kill an entire bottle of wine by herself. She drunkenly admits that she was there just to create a scene, but moans that it became real.

I mean, don't get me wrong, there were some kdrama cliches in Marriage Not Dating but nothing was overbearing. In fact, I loved those cliches too. And it was an extremely refreshing romantic-comedy. The plot was very interesting throughout. A guy wants to stay single while his family (mostly his mom) threatens to get him married/ Aug 25,   Marriage Not Dating: Episode 16 (Final) by LollyPip. Marriage Not Dating wraps up in a satisfying and poetic way, bringing us back full circle to remind us why we've all loved this couple so much. They stay true to themselves as the show manages to tie up all the loose ends nicely, leaving me feeling like everyone gets the ending they deserve/5.

She leans in close to say that actually she just really really really really really worries about him. Then she passes out. Meanwhile Yeo-reum and Jang-mi are asleep side-by-side in the dining room, her on a bench and him on a row of chairs. Ki-tae tries to reach Jang-mi but remembers that her phone was ruined, and speeds up to try to get to the restaurant before his mother does. Cable network tvN is on a roll, and Marriage Not Dating is the latest in a string of light, fresh, airy rom-coms with characters that just draw you in and make you fall in love.

The magic lies in the characters who may seem like standard drama stereotypes at the outset, but the more we get to know them, the more they surprise us with their depth and individuality. For me, a drama is made or broken by its characters, and the characters are what this show does to perfection. Whenever I start to think he might be having feelings for Jang-mi, he does something like agree to collect information about her and Ki-tae for Se-ah only to turn around and show flashes of jealousy by asking Jang-mi multiple times about her feelings for Ki-tae.

I think that he revealed a lot when he said to Se-ah that Jang-mi must be something great since everyone is obsessed with her lately. All in all, I think the show is playing to its strengths by letting the characters shine above all else, and I would honestly watch these people and their relationships no matter what the overarching plot happened to be. Your email address will not be published. I'm digging the hell out of this drama.

Jang Mi's character is quirky, zaney, devoted and believable. There's no "damsel in distress" syndrome going on with her. I really don't care about the other love characters molding aside from the OTP because the OTP and their families are making me laugh so much. XD I can't wait for their "Marriage". Ki Tae's mother reminds me of Secretary Kim in Ugly Alert very scheming ,controlling and obsessed with her priorities.

that necessary, will

Love Love Love it!!!! It is so funny and the characters have such a fresh feeling about them. I can't wait until they really fall for each other! I'm pretty sure that Ki-Tae will be the one falling first!! I'm sooo loving it. That's why he keeps asking her to continue their fake relationship even though she keeps asking him to end it! Thank you so much for your wonderful recaps!

As always, your insightful descriptions and feelings on the show give me food for thought. I am so glad that you are recapping this series. I love the complexity of the characters. They are so layered. I adore how the writers are not revealing TOO much too soon. It is actually tantalizing to get to know them slowlyhow they think and how they respond to situations. It mirrors real life in this way.

It speaks volume about the writer that even though she doesn't reveal too much at one time, the episodes never feel slow moving at all.

Where do you guys watch this. I tried Viki a few days ago but it wasn't available in my area I live in the States. Didn't see it on Dramafever either. Any suggestions? It's on Viki and they do have it available in the US, so I'm not sure why it's giving you trouble.

opinion, error

I also highly recommend kdrama. They have excellent video quality and very accurate subtitles. Viki occasionally tells me that a video isn't available in my area too, but after a refresh or two, it works i live in the US as well. As far as actual subtitles go, more is always better so I toggle between the two subs viki and kdrama.

Viki definitely has some lines that are incorrectly translated though - some just don't make sense in the context of the show when the corresponding kdrama. I really love this drama. I was telling one of my friends about it today and explaining the crossed love lines etc is entertaining in of itself. She told me that she had this huge grin on her face just from reading my plot and character synopsis.

I adore this drama and I am soooooo thankful for the recap. I like Fated to Love You, but I am enjoying this one a little more. I have actutally rewatched some of the episodes already because I love the attraction and tension between our two leads. I think your recap is right on - this drama is also flushing out the other characters and they are colored in various hues of gray - not black and white Restaurant Guy - total rich jerk, but he realize his mistake and I believe is truly repentance; Girlfriend at Work - good sounding board coworker, but she is clearly after Restaurant Guy; Ex-Girlfriend Rich Doctor - has not moved on and will do whatever it takes to protect and keep her man in his home all alone.

Plus I am curious why Ki-tae abandon his family Why does Grandmom feels it is her fault? Ki-tae's Mom is so proper and polite, so why would she even accept a marriage sham? Why is the aunt single I'm just curious because usually in K-drama they do not have a single older female hanging out while they are trying to marry off a younger family member I am just wondering? What is Yeo-reum's story? He is tall, handsome, great smile, nice body, good dancer, budding chief, body made for jeans or a tux, but really Why is he in this drama I really love this drama, and episode were my favorite so far because it shows how much Ki Tae leads a lonely life and he's not happy about it even if he doesn't admit yet.

I also love that Jang Mi drinks at every episode lol, seriously every time she ends up with soju or any other drink XD. Can u guys be more right.

He is the least expressive person in the show.

He is like a kid that only wants to go after jang mi since it's seems everyone else is out to get her. His only goal to me is to make gi tei jealous and realize his own feelings her jang mi. Yeo-Reum is just a chilled - laid back character. I really like that about him. He is watching all this chaos around Jang-Mi and trying to figure out how to catch her attention without looking dumb or interferring. The character that irritates me is Hoon-Dong.

He charges Jang-Mi with stalking and now he wants her back. Just plain weird. Its almost as if he is the "damsel in distress". Just saying. That last screencap? That hug? One of my favorite moments in this show so far because the urgency in his hug reveals the vulnerability that he has hidden deep down, and I'm so happy it is Jang-mi who brings it out.

This show is one of my favorites in a while. I think you have great insight into both the main characters.

They are living pseudo-fantasies, but now that they are interfering with each other's, it's jerking them back to reality.

agree, rather useful

I love this setup, I love this couple. I definitely hope for Ki-tae's mom to turn into a character I love I already sort of do and not go the typical mother-in-law route we're used to seeing in dramaland. I want her and Jang-mi to be best friends at the end of this show.

As for Yeo-reum and Se-ah, they can both go away with their money and business deals and leave my precious OTP alone. The manga-ish reactions and the sound effects and comedic-timings are so on point it's almost unbelievable. The reactions are adorably over the top that it presents EXACTLY how anyone would feel in that situation who hasn't ever thought of breaking out into a full-blown acrobatic dance after a long day of work? Yet, who has actually done that?

I appreciate Girlfriday and LollyPip's recaps but this is a show where recaps just don't do it justice. You must watch it to get it. At least, in my opinion. Agree - sometimes the facial expressions etc are as much a part of the scenes as the dialogue. I think this is only like the 2nd drama out of hundreds that I have gone back and rewatched almost the entire show. Ki Tae goes shirtless really pretty often in this drama!! He's never been this hawt for me!

And I love Han Groo and all her eye rolling! I googled her and was very impressed by her academic and dance achievements! I don't know what Yeon Woo-jin is doing differently, but it is working because I have never even been attracted to him before and now I'm completely smitten Yeon Woo Jin always played the antagonist second leads before. So happy to see him get an adorable role here.

Both men are flower boy pretty, but neither has chocolate abs. I can't wait to see Song Joong Ki's post-Army abs!!! True, but before that he had a little noona-romance in the weekend series Ojakkyo Brothers and I really liked him there. I thought he was really endearing as the playboy that fell head over heals for an older woman, but I still wasn't personally attracted to him.

That's why I'm so surprised with him here :. Super happy to see you also recapping this show, LollyPip. Your comments are always insightful and it's clear that you're really enjoying the show, although it helps that the show is actually good so far, ha.

I laughed so, SO hard at episode 4. I loved JangMi's victory dance, beating KiTae with a fish and the dramatic way they showed her cooking, haha. Also KiTae crashing the date - so funny how jealous he is already and how much he behaves like his family, although he doesn't even realize it. This show can be so silly and odd at times which I love but it also has a lot of heart. I completely agree that the leads are on opposite ends of the same coin and I love the idea that they can help each other find balance in their lives.

Also I love their banter and how honest they are with each other. This is my first time really rooting for a couple just because of how much potential there is for them to enrich each other's lives. If they were open to it, they could really help to bring out good in the other and it's a real testament to the crafting of the characters and how well they're played that this is already clear so early on. For now, I'm happy that they're starting out just being concerned about each other.

Despite his prickliness, KiTae seems to genuinely care about JangMi and he clearly feels badly for her when she gets dumped on which happens a lot. He could certainly use more tact but I think he really wants JangMi to make better decisions for herself. And on the flip side, JangMi starts caring about people so quickly - she worries about KiTae, about his mother and his grandmother. She has a really big heart and she tries so hard to reach out and connect with people even if they've hurt her and let her down.

She's definitely flawed but there's a lot of good in her personality too. I'm really looking forward to learning more about these characters and their motivations, especially for the side characters like YeoReum and HyunHee. Except for HoonDong and his mother, the characters all seem to have a lot of depths left to plumb. The actor who's playing the male lead is hilarious. His comedic timing is priceless and you can just see how much effort he's putting into being just so cool all the time.

I keep having flashbacks to Killer Girl K with Jang mi. It's such a different character for the actress and everytime she starts beating on someone, I half expect her to snap their neck or pull out a sniper rifle and snicker to myself. I do wish she'd dial down the histrionics at times, especially the desperate clingy 'he likes me, he likes me not' thing she has going on with WannaBeChef boy who until this week, I kept waiting for him to play the secret chaebol card because he's so insolent around his boss.

Marriage plot

What really intrigues me is the dichotomy between the two sets of parents and the damage they've clearly done to the leads. What you have, in all honesty, is two couples who would have divorced a long long time ago if they were in the U. And they've both held their marriages together for the sake of their children and the scandal it would cause otherwise. And how it's stitched together is frayed in different ways that create a lot of ongoing issues for their families and offspring.

Maybe it's the multiple divorces in my family, but the similar but different approach to these two failed marriages and their impact on the next generation fascinates me. I am really starting to like Han Groo. I find her very sexy with that "I am doing something naughty" smile of hers and healthy figure. She also seem to feel right at home doing a comedic role. TvN sure knows who to cast for their rom-com heroines.

I really like the characters and the story of the show.

something also

If I had to pick one thing I don't like about the show then it would be Yeo-Reum. He just seems like your cut and paste flower boy character plus he's being played by Jinwoon who I kinda lump with Taecyon as far as acting ability goes.

He doesn't have to smile on every scene. Please please give less screen time to yeo rim. He is either at the restaurant serving food or in the kitchen making food everytime I'm he is with jang mi.

This guy couldn't be any cheaper. I get that jang mi is keeping her ongoing relationship with him since she figures nothing will ever happen with gi tai but yeo scenes are so boring.

I actually think Yeo-Reum's weird smiling is exactly that, weird. Thank you! I completely agree with you, I just couldn't quite put it into words so I didn't write anything. But, yes I totally think that the actor's smiling all the time actually suits what this character is supposed to be.

He's certainly very mysterious, and always seems to flicker between seeming genuine and fake. Han Groo is a total badass as well! Have you seen her in Girl K? She's fantastic. Reminds me a bit of Ha Ji Won in that she throws herself into different roles and has this healthy, easy beauty about her but also has a fierce side.

I have been thinking this ". I can already see some movement in that direction, they are like sharks circling each other that have not decided to be partners or eat each other. This is one of the very few dramas I have seen where the MIL actually had any depth beyond just being an evil bitch, and most other characters also have far more depth than in most dramas - it is not just a 2-person OTP show with a random 3rd wheel tossed in for the shipping wars effect.

I don't understand why Ki-tea family is being quiet about dad's affair, it seems like dad is the only one who thinks that no one know about the affair.

I think it is a case of nobody wants to confront it, and nobody wants to cause a scandal that might affect his promotion. I think this show aside from being funny as hell, is also showing that ignoring bad things does not equal being happy.
