Not marriage without dating dramabeans much prompt

Now that my recap slate has freed up, I can finally turn my attention to something new. I was planning to just weigh in on the show once in a while when I had the time, but LollyPip has graciously offered to tag-team the recaps with me, so that tipped the scales. Thank her in the next recap! Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player version 9 or above is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here.

What did she do? She bought the apt next door and promptly brought in workmen to knock down the walls, Without consulting w him. I'd be very very scared to have anything to do w such a person, much less be married to her. Good for him that he found out that's the way she is B4 the wedding rather than after.

It actually confuses me a lot because it just doesn't seem to fit the tone of the rest of the drama, which is usually careful to give the characters realistic emotions and motivations and to twist drama tropes. Only Se-Ah is completely evil-crazy- and not even comically or ironically. I don't understand her at all and I have no clue where her character will end up. Maybe it's like what GF said about her scheme to have his kid. Her aim is to find ways to keep him in her life permanently.

So maybe in her crazy logic, she thought that if she merged the apartments it'd keep him attached to her regardless of how the marriage was working out? Se Ah wants to be the last one standing for GT's girl friends. Since she was kicked to the curb three years ago after she acted psycho by trying to knock down his apt. GT is not into you. He's already made the comment that Se Ah is too much like his mom. Why doesn't she go to a sperm bank if she wants a baby?

I'm glad GT finally dawns on him that he likes JM no matter how much he had denied it beforehand. Love the scene where JM is sleeping head to head with YR. GT probably wished it was him instead with JM!

The realization that Ki-tae might actually like Jang mi is great and shows she had worn him down enough that he would care again. Honestly I am personally conflicted about whether Jang mi should go to Ki-tae because she likes another. I am not sure what she gets out of this deal as it seems always for Ki-tae. It was initially to make Hoon dong jealous but that seems complete now. I guess that's her get personality of helping others out over her own happiness.

I see a lot of people shipping our lead couple together, but I feel it's wrong to ship our lead couple simply because they ARE the lead. Don't get me wrong, I do think that Gi Tae and Jang mi would have explosive chemistry, but at this stage in his development, Gi Tae is still very immature, very wrapped up in his own needs and feelings.

He needs to grow to a point where he puts Jang mi's needs above his own. Right now it's all about him, the relationship he has with Jang mi is one in which Jang mi gives, and he takes. This is by no means healthy. The give and take of their relationship has to be mutual and reciprocal so they both gain something from it, then I would be happy that Jang mi and Gi Tae are together.

I see them progressing to that point, when Gi Tae fully acknowledges to himself that he is head over heels in love with her. Watching that progression is exciting. For now, Yeo Reum is meeting Jang mi's needs in a relationship.

I don't see him as a bad guy, because he made a few mistakes along the way, I guess we could all learn from Jang mi's forgiving heart and cut him some slack. Although, with a part time job and no housing he is by no means ready to settle down. As a previous commenter observed, ALL relationships are important, not just the one that leads to the altar, and I would advise Jangmi to go for it. All experiences make us wiser and add to our growth and maturity.

I don't ship Gi-Tae and Jang Mi simply because they are the lead couple, but because they have good chemistry together. I agree completely that the relationship the way it stands now is completely unhealthy, but at the same time, there is room for growth as both learn to change each other for the better.

Jang-Mi become stronger and Gi- Tae learns to be less selfish. My problem with Yeo-rum comes in his shadiness. I cannot get genuine feelings from him. I am not sure if it is due to the actor's inexperience, but nothing about him feels real to me. He smiles, he smiles, and he smiles some more. It is a mask that does not let me know a thing about him, and I cannot get on a ship for a couple where I don't know what he wants. Does Jang-Mi like him or does she like the idea of him? The guy who says everything she wants to hear and does everything she wants.

Looking at the way he interacted with women throughout the past few episodes, he is accustomed to catering to what women want, so again that "fakeness" comes across to me. I acknowledge that he does perhaps seem to genuinely like Jang- Mi, but it's again his mask that doesn't let me climb onboard his support vessel. This is one time I just don't have second lead syndrome. I know there's something wrong with Ki tae's dad after he checked out Jang mi's legs in eps No wonder Ki tae prefer to be alone, just see his parents.

I love to see Ki tae's change bit by bit. That guy doesn't even have friends I mean he only hung out with Hoon dong who's supposed to be his friend once in all 7 episodesit's just so touching to see he's having fun with companies in his apartment.

YWJ's face is so spot on, you can see Ki tae's been lonely all this time and realize it's better to have companies. Anyway I'm looking forward to see what will Ki tae do after realized his feelings. If Yeo rum is out the picture after this episode I will be happier. Loved this episode, so much good stuff happening and I can't get over the OST and sound effects, so on point and perfect! I think you are all crazy - between the guy who yells at me when I'm upset and it not my fault AND the guy who hugs me and cooks for me The natural thing to do would be to scoop in and just hug her, comfort her and wipe away her tears.

No, just no. I'm thinking that KT actually has a lot to work thru and to learn when it comes to love, coming fr that family he has. His dad is one shitty bastard, and his mom is rather dysfunctional as a person, and a mom. I feel sorry for him, and am happy that he is opening up under JM's influence.

I disagree- I think it shows he has some genuinely deep emotions for her. Everyone's experienced being extremely worried about a loved one and then getting mad at them for making you panic- like when parents yell at their children for getting lost in a public place. If you don't care about someone, you don't fear for them, get annoyed by them, or get angry at them. It's just like when Jang-Mi went crazy on Hoon-dong at the beginning. Ki-Tae has been purposefully holding himself aloof from people precisely because actually caring hurts and gets really complicated.

Matchless marriage without dating dramabeans Absolutely with

The fact that he couldn't keep his "cool" a key word for the drama and act like a perfect gentleman in that emergency situation proves that his walls have finally been breached and he now has emotions for Jang-Mi that he can't hide or control. I think this was the whole point of the episode and a really important theme of the drama as a whole: Real love isn't "cool" keeping up appearances and protecting everyone's face but instead is willing to throwaway pride and be completely vulnerable, honest, and abandoned, even if that means experiencing pain and embarrassment.

It wasn't. The point is that he was so upset and concerned that his emotions over-rided doing the "right" thing. He is just waking up to his feelings and so all that bottled up emotion is spilling out in the wrong ways.

I understand very well his yelling. I think we all do. But wouldn't it be nice if he could suppress his worry-induced yelling long enough to just hug her first, is all I'm saying. Yelling releases the worry-generated tension for him. Hugging comforts here. Therein lies the difference. But yelling is more in line with the person that Gong Gi Tae is at this point in the story. Hugging and comforting is only the natural thing to do if that's the kind of person you are.

It would be nice if he did the whole hugging and comforting thing, sure, but it wouldn't be true to his character. Seriously, the girl is a sobbing mess and he knows why but he yells at her. I love GiTae but damn he really needs to learn some people skills. I put myself in her shoes, I wouldn't like the guy who is only capable of yelling at me when I'm hurt. That's the person he is at the moment; poor guy has a lot to learn. I pick the guy I have a stronger connection with, and I honestly don't feel like her and Yeo-reum have a strong connection at all, especially not compared to our two leads.

I think he cares about her more than we think. He is always trying to protect her Pretty boy is really fun to look at and he's so sweet I look at it as between the guy who was paid to go out with me and lied about it or the guy who tells me the truth no matter how much it hurts.

But honestly, however we look at it, both guys got flaws, and ultimately it's not about who's the better person for Jang-mi. It's not about picking someone.

It's about how you feel. That's why in k-dramas, the second lead always gets kicked to the curb even if he is nicer. It's why the "friendzone" exists. Feelings just matter more when it comes to relationships. I started watching this drama just for the sake of killing time and also because I needed another drama to take my mind off of "Fated to Love You" I'm soooo hooked!!!! I knew that it would have ultimately been Ki Tae who would fall for Jang Mi first.

It was lovely seeing him fight that inner turmoil. And now that his feelings are somewhat "out of the bag" I really do hope that in the coming episode s he'll be more proactive. There's nothing I love more than a smitten male lead who is proactive about his feelings! In regards to Yeo Reum, I find him cute well to be specific I find Jinwoon cute but I honestly cannot resonate with his character nor his relationship with Jang Mi. I feel that everything about this pairing is just rainbow and unicorns.

The relationship fails to convey any depth, making it hard for me to get behind these two. Atlas, for now I will wait and see how Ki Tae will do about his budding feelings and how long it'll take Jang Mi to meet him half way. Ok, now that unlikely bromance has me turn myself on. Who knew that Pretty Boy and Cutie Pie would be besties? The threesome tapped into my happy feels and now I'm a happy satisfied camper.

I love that Cutie Pie fell for our girl first, and like you said, darlin', he's gonna have to try mightily to convince Jang Mi that he loves her. What an awesome challenge to Mr. Ki-tae is my main man, mostly because of Yeon Woo-jin being so great in this role. But I actually like Yeo-reum - stiff acting from Jinwoon aside. He's cute and he takes care of Jang-mi and he seems sincere, if a little slow at opening up.

If it were me, it would be no contest. If nothing else, he's there when she needs a friend, unlike basically everyone else. Even though I admit that the value of the company is important - the lesson Jang-mi is slowly learning - they're young and they're having fun and enjoying each other's company; ain't nothing wrong with that. It actually kind of sucks for her that she also has to deal with the fake relationship with awful fake in-laws and the awful ex on the side. Also I find it refreshing that the side pair has a believable potential romance to seriously threaten the main paring - one that's not just leftover feelings from a previous relationship.

Anyway, great writing, good cast, and lots of cuteness means that I'm happy. It's been a while since I was genuinely rooting for the main pairing without wanting the dude to get a lobotomy, so I'm excited to be in for the ride. YR and JM in the real world and without worrying about KT would probably date for a little while and have fun doing so. JM hopefully has learned to protect herself enough that she isn't falling hopelessly, madly in love - but going with what makes her feel giggly, at ease, warm.

Right now, with all his teasing smiles, hugs and food, that person is YR. KT is the opposite. He challenges her, wants her to break old habits and be stronger and smarter about life. Nothing warm about him! HD pointed out that being "cool" is the most important thing. This is why I love GF's mention of the "fortress of solitude" In Superman, it's a cold, distant place. I cannot deal with Han Yeo Rum, he has two expressions: expressionless that looks kinda like he's angry and then his fake smiling face.

He's not at all rival worthy!!! I wish they'd show more Jangmi and Gitae scenes! As usual, I agree with everything you say and I even teared up a little because I am so happy that the writing is just so brilliant. Like, I have been so disappointed those past few months by KDramaland and here I am, breathing again ; Seriously, I am a little bit overreacting but I just really love the drama.

You expect something and then, BAAM, it's something totally unexpected. You ain't getting bored at all. I am always anxious when I click on the next part because I know the episode is going to end soon and that I would have to wait the next day or next week.

I am so freakin' addicted and I know it's not sane at all XD. Yeon Woo Jin is doing such a good job. His expressions are seriously the best. The way he expressed his feelings through his eyes, it's just so wonderful. This role was really meant for him. He is just so adorable when he couldn't stop starring at Jang Mi's lips. No words for Jang Mi. That girl is so amazing that I just can't anymore.

I so love her. When she "threatened" Mom that the Gong family will end if she keeps bothering them. It's just Even if the drama isn't finished, she became one of my favorite female character along with Cha Yoon Hee of Unexpected You. Those women are so badass! Han Groo was also meant for that role.

I can't just see anyone else and it just shows how good she is.

Remarkable marriage without dating dramabeans seems good idea

GAH, their chemistry is killing me! It's like, you just need to put those two in the same room and explosion because it's so hot lol. There aren't lots of OTP which make me feel like this. The most recent one gotta be Chiaki and Nodame of Nodame Cantabile. And no words for Se Ah. She is so cray cray, it's not sane at all for her and everyone else. I gotta admit that Sunhwa is doing a good job! I didn't really like her in God's Gift but here, she is shining. Well, burning because she is the devil XD.

I understand the appeal of Yeo Rum on paper - he's the easy dating option, no family hassle and he's cute - but what I'm seeing on screen is this shallow guy who uses a tragic backstory to get his own way and worse for a TV show he has no chemistry with his love interest Jang Mi. The actor isn't good enough to add layers when the writing isn't doing him any favours.

He's not sympathetic nor is he your typical self sacrificing second lead. He comes across as a user, one who has no friends and personality switches into a male Jang Mi in an attempt to get KT to like him. Not because he's desperate to be liked but because he thinks it's his best shot at bunking at KT's place for a while. I love the one line zingers that KT says! In this episode paraphrased - when he said is there a confession where the girl is called a fool, then the one about only people who want to look good cook pasta, then when he asked YR are you Jesus when he suggested the soup left is enough for a good meal for 3 people.

So funny and witty, cutting but has not crossed the line into just flat out insulting. Hope they keep lines like these going! No offense, but I think a lot of people who are saying that the actors portraying Yeo-reum and Hoon-dong are terrible at acting simply don't get it due to a cultural difference They aren't bad actors, they're simply portraying their character.

Hoon-dong's isn't perhaps the most realistic- no-one in real life flails about like that when throwing a tantrum, etc. Yeo-reum is supposed to be this enigmatic character who's a bit shifty and closed off, so the actor isn't doing poorly at all- that's just the way his character is. He's a pretty boy, he knows it, and his smiles are meant to be ambiguous, like a distraction. That said, I'm really loving this drama so far.

I adore that the male lead is the one who falls for the heroine first. And I know jealousy isn't pretty, if it leads to wrist grabs and forceful kissing, stalking, etc. In any drama, period.

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.

I'm sorry, I'm a bit of a sadist, but I'm enjoying the love triangle and I hope that his jealousy and angst continues for a bit more. Of course I love Ki Tae and Jang Mi together and I want them to end up together at the end, but I don't hate Yeo-reum for "keeping the OTP apart," because I can see why she's attracted to him and of course, as I mentioned before, Ki Tae's jealousy and angst is so satisfying to me as a viewer.

I must reiterate how much I love your recaps. I enjoy watching this show immensely but I always tune in to your comments on each episode after watching it because it links up themes and little motifs that I either don't notice in all the excitement or notice but didn't fully appreciate until you bring attention to them and analyse them so brilliantly.

Once again many thanks. And I'm not sure where to request this, but is there any chance you'll be reviewing the new film Miss Granny? I enjoyed the movie immensely and would love to read your take on it :D.

I don't get it, why is she going through all this for him? For her parents that's not a good reason. At the start it was to get back at her ex, then for her parents since they started talking because of her "engagement.

I reference you to a kitchen discussion where she talks about GT sideways and says, she thought she knew him, and pouts and so on. I believe it was in the typhoon episode before she ate the typhoon food. She said that she liked GT, etc and that he wouldn't realize her existence, but she's being foolish and then YR was listening to her go on about GT and then she ate the typhoon food, he kissed her and at some point she decided to give up GT.

\

She's been shaking her feelings since then, and decided to devote herself to YR. I think that JM realised that she has some kind of feelings for GT, but she isn't quite sure what to make of that. I don't think she likes him romantically yet, but she does care about him, and he is someone she feels, in an unexpected way, close to. So she likes him, but not in that way.

Sorry, that marriage without dating dramabeans thanks for

That's my interpretation, but I'm going to watch that scene again and see if I see what you see. I don't remember the conversation exactly, but my takeaway was that she said Ki-tae gets under her skin and she worries about him being so alone, but that she's romantically interested in YR. I think YR picked up on Jang-mi's worry as having a deeper root than just a platonic friendly thing, but I don't think Jang-mi was aware of her feelings.

I just don't think Jang-mi has even allowed herself to entertain the possibility of being with Ki-tae, considering how open he has been about using her to push his family away. After getting so hurt by her ex, I think she's directed her feelings towards the "safer" man in YR.

Even though he may be sketchier than Ki-tae, Jang-mi doesn't have the depth of feelings towards him, so even if they don't work out, she will not end up quite as heartbroken.

With Ki-tae, I think that she instinctually knows that if she falls down that rabbit hole, she is going to fall hard and fast. That's how I interpret the situation anyway. Great input. He continues to protect her even though he wants her to look horrible in front of his family. It feels like he unconsciously protects and sincere for each action she is force to into. Well said, lessonlearn.

I think what Jang-mi is learning right now is the difference between loneliness and being alone-and conversely, the difference between spending time with someone and experiencing emotional intimacy with someone.

Unless she embraces and accepts her own aloneness, she will keep filling the void with empty superficial relationships rather than true intimacy. Right now, Yeo Reum is offering her his physical presence and some light companionship, but what she has with Ki-tae is true emotional intimacy.

I think she's just really kind and just cared for GT at this moment. The realization, not quite there yet. It's just that JM understands GT's sentiments on being alone and she's helping him to get that and nothing more than that. Remember how HD and JM part ways?

I think she doesn't want to experience that again. Love isn't voluntary most of the time You wrote it like she had a choice to like who she likes-one can like someone, but choose not to act on it. The difference is that she chooses differently this time around. I still got the stronger impression that she likes and is invested in GT romantically, but that she rather push those feelings down and bury herself in YR. In doing so, she's acting "cool" towards GT, which is kinda driving him crazy I love how he finally admitted if only to himself that he wasn't okay at the end.

Also so happy that he fell for her first bc this is a mess of his own making. That scene in the in his living room with the three of them was one of my favourite parts of the episode. They had this odd makeshift family feel and I love shows that do that. Oh, thanks for articulating what is one of my favourite kdrama things that I didn't have a way of describing: "that off makeshift family feel"!

I love shows that do that too, so I was in my bliss during the living room scene. It was adorable! GF - Thanks for the recap. It is so perfectly written. From the the French movie suggestion -ooh la la - to the call backs from earlier eps to your final comments.

Reading all of this is so satisfying. It flows beautifully and I am envious of how easy it looks. I know that you have have been doing this for years and keep getting better at it Enough about you.

He's perfect. He is exactly what JM wants right now, so let her have him. Did you not see how happy she was with her little head on his shoulder?

Is she going to run off and live with him forever and ever? I don't know. Why not? GT is lovely lovely lovely, I agree, but he is not emotionally available to JM, yet. Even though he ran ran ran to rescue her in the clinic, his first impulse was NOT to reach down and hug her, but to scold her. He didn't even think of it.

It was the same after the typhoon episode. At the suju tent, she sat in front of him with tears running down her face and he just kept correcting her behavior. That is what he thinks she needs right now. To some degree he is right.

He knows that if she stuck up for herself, she wouldn't have pooped her pants or wouldn't have been run ragged by Auntie. He is playing long game strategy with her so she won't need YR's short game strategy - comfort for her mistakes. She needs both boys right now. Thing is - One of them can change and become a better partner for her.

One of them isn't wise enough to know he needs to change to be a long term partner. It's in GT's hands. Like GF said, he has to choose to be "someone who might actually risk his pride for love. While I am nodding along with most of what you said I'd also say aybe it's not totally because he's "emotionally unavailable":. IF he is that emotionally unavailable - I doubt he'd even scold. That's too much effort. He will just be detached.

Blame it on his family and upbringing - do you see his mom running in to hug and comfort or scold first? You are right! Let's see - he is not emotionally ready to make a physical or public-can-see connection - yet - and hides his feelings behind bluster.

A bit off-topic, but I was wondering why this drama is not listed under the "Currently Airing" sidebar. Actually, I see that Friday shows are not even on the list. Korea's "prime time" does not include Fridays? I loved how off-kilter GT was at the beginning of the episode in the restaurant when he's uncomfortably talking to JM and picks up the empty glass to take a sip only to realize that it's empty!

Heehee :. Maybe it's still a newish time slot on the Korean programming schedule? I remember reading that the new cable channels were experimenting with different slots. Thank you, drama. For introducing me too Yeon Woojin. And that it is possible for a drama to be ridiculously hilarious but also heart thumping at the same time.

Han yeo reum is lack of expression. Talk about polar opposites. A guy who wants to be alone and a girl who can't be alone. Everything about them is opposite each other, even their parents. Her parents fight all the time and I am still wondering what they fight about while his parents have a legitimate issue to be fighting but they don't.

What a strange couple. Oh gosh Thank you dramagods! Ok, I seriously want to finish watching this because the male lead is adorable, but this second lead male is totally killing it for me! He's like the annoying little brother that tags along everywhere. I'm going to have to tune in later, if they make him disappear.

I like them together. I actually think they are soul mates, but since soul mates rarely end up together so I think they would be just bff.

But one thing I like in this show I'm rooting for the male lead as much as the second male lead. Love your recaps and comments.

By that I mean, every other character has played with the comedic elements of their characters and situations. Even Hyun Hee did a little during her first and second meeting of Hoon Dong. The actress' delivery in that scene lacked any comedic element. Or did I just miss out on a good laugh there? Had she smiled, flirted, or been a tad bit more physical while making the demand, it may have come across that way and better followed the tone of the rest of the drama. I also hope we get a little more backstory on why for her it has to be Gong Gi Tae.

Yeah, I always feel like she's pulling Gi Tae's chain whenever she asks him to do something totally ridiculous, like that's her weird way of flirting with him or something. Record of Youth: Episode 8.

I've been completely in love with this show since day 1.

I hope it get's a lot of love. It has been a while since I watched a drama all over again like times in a week while waiting for the next episode to come. Thanks for covering this show! I watched the first two episodes on a whim, and was surprised by how fun and charming it is!

Have yet to pick up High Sch King of Savvy the title put me off but will soon - seems like an enjoyable ride. I must've replayed that scene so much - you know where she's banging on the bathroom door with the beer bottle, and she's raging to come face to face with her jerk ex. Then, when the door finally opens My heart breaks as I watch her eyes Thank you girlfriday and LollyPip for agreeing to taking this show on : I was on the fence at first about the show and wanted to see what others were thinking.

Thankfully I watched until ep and realized that although the heroine is a clingy, stalking mess I couldn't help but root for her. She likes the 2nd? She doesn't try to change him and just accepts him as he is. When she gets knocked down she just feels sad then bounces right back I love it! I am so happy that it's being recapped here!!

Such a refreshing show and it's absolutely hilarious. I think in addition to the witty banter and great comedy, the music choices have all been so awesome and just make each scene that much more hilarious and epic feeling lmao.

I totally agree that the music pieces bring up the lightness and freshness of the show I find Han Groo an amazing actress. I've not watched any of her other shows, but I might do so. She is a young actress with great potential to continue to be the lead.

Fantastic writing and directing too. I really enjoy this show for the insanity it is. Jang-mi is a wonderful character that you can't help but root for. Yeah, I cringed a lot at her stalker-tendencies, but at the same time, there is such a realness to her that I can't be bothered too much by her flaws. She's so full of gusto and good intentions. She's just great. I love the banter between her and Ki-tae, who is also a great character in his own right.

I find his honesty however brutal refreshing since it's rare for male characters to be that way in many dramas. He's got his assy flaws, but like Jang-mi, he has that realness as well. I'm anxiously waiting for the moment they fall in love!

I agree about KiTae's honesty. I mean, he definitely could use some tact but a lot of the things he says to JangMi, she really needs to hear. And the same goes for her calling him out on some of the things he does. It's nice to see a show actually acknowledging when people overstep their boundaries and not just ignoring it or treating it like cute or endearing behavior.

Thank you so much for the recap. I'm loving this show because the characters are so fun to watch. Gi Tae's actions may be embarassing but her sincerity is believable and heartbreaking that you'll end up rooting for her. And her spunkiness makes her loveable. Already finished the first 4 episodes and the chemistry between Gi Tae and Jang Mi is just sizzling hot. And Yeo Reum just has this winsome smile that makes you melt.

Thank you so much girlfriday and LollyPip for recapping this drama. I just love it so much. The way that the characters interact is just so cute and enjoyable, it really makes my day. In fact, I'm re-watching the first four episodes. I really can't get enough. To think that I already had enough list of other dramas waiting to be watched but this show just that addictive.

I just had to rewatch them again while killing the time to wait for another whole week. Thanks for recapping I love this show!! I'm glad Girlfriday and LollyPip are recapping this show. MND is adorable and hilarious, a total riot and a keeper. I've been wanting a place where I can comment and share my appreciation for the show and here it is.

Ask and ye shall receive. So, thank you thank you! I've been hoping that there would be recaps of this show! It's definitely one of my favorite shows right now! I love the humor and romance, and its one of the shows I anxiously wait for every week. Thanks so much for picking it up girlfriday! She's great at doing comedy too. One of my faves of the summer. So funny and I love the cast.

Every episode gets sillier and more hilarious. Thanks for recapping this one. TvN can do no wrong when it comes to rom-coms lately.

I am a little late to the party but I thoroughly enjoyed marathoning the first few episodes. Han Groo is such a hoot and she has some of the best crazy-eyes I have seen in Kdrama heroines. Yeon Woo Jin or as I call him "Korea's Seth Macfarlane", well I think he kinda looks like him doesn't seem like your typical jerk hero, he's just trying to hang on to that bachelor life.

Jin Woon is trouble with a capital T. Any guy who knows he's good looking and has no qualms flaunting it is always trouble. He almost immediately reminded me of Leonardo Dicaprio and then I suddenly saw so many Viki commenters remarking the same thing. I think it's the eyes and head shape.

Thank you so much!!! I figured with all the shows you guys were recapping this would be impossible! I'm so grateful because I'm loving the show as well : It's so funny! And both the leads are awesome! I love the pattern of the episodes, where they begin with an incident, and then backtrack to show us how they got there. Not to mention, it ensures that something dramatic has to happen each episode, which is fun.

Oh my goodness what an expected surprise. Thank you thank you. This is wonderful. I really want this recap so that you guys can catch the nuances which I usually don't get. Thank you so much for this. I am really enjoying this drama it's got some solid acting. And the comedy is so spot on. Oh my, I never knew that I could laugh like that, watching a drama. I was cracking up watching ep. Love this drama. Love the directing, acting and everything. Han groo looks like yoon eun hye here. Thou both of them have their own charm.

Well done! This show is such a mix of real people acting like real people in real situations, I have to wonder where has this writer been? Each episode seems to uncover more layers of each person, they are not just static robots playing roles that never change. Every episode the mom gets revealed more and more, and with each episode she seems more vulnerable. I highly suspect that mom does not really dislike JM - she is jealous how JM can be so free wheeling while she keeps everything bottled up for appearances sake.

Aug 10,   Marriage Not Dating: Episode 11 by LollyPip. Hey all! I'm covering both of this week's episodes of Marriage Not Dating while girlfriday is at KCON (so jealous!) so please bear with me, I'm not as super-fast as she is! Let's send her and javabeans our best wishes for a fantastic weekend and a safe return!. Ki-tae and Jang-mi aren't bound to their pretend engagement anymore, but. Jul 19,   Marriage Not Dating: Episodes by girlfriday. Now that my recap slate has freed up, I can finally turn my attention to something new. Marriage Not Dating is the newest Friday-Saturday offering from tvN, and I've been enjoying it immensely for its witty banter, laugh-out-loud humor, and its refreshing take on romance. Not to mention that there's a hilarious contract relationship in the. Marriage, Not Dating (Korean: ?? ?? ??; RR: Yeonae Malgo Gyeolhon) is a South Korean television series starring Yeon Woo-jin, Han Groo, Jeong Jinwoon, Han Sun-hwa, Heo Jung-min, and Yoon So-hee. It aired on tvN from July 4 to August 23, .

The writer Joo Hwa Mi, has a few other credits to her name. Thanks for the info. Thank you for the info! I've been meaning to check out Hope For Dating for awhile so now that I know the writer is the same person, I'm definitely going to move it up on my to watch list. From the next episode you'll find it the reason behind it is his father. I hate him Poor Gi tae. Thank you girlfriday and Lollypip!

Jul 25,   Marriage Not Dating: Episode 7 by girlfriday. There are so many love geometries in this drama that it's a wonder how anyone remains friends. And yet, the unlikeliest of bromances emerges in this episode, because things weren't complicated enough for the heroine who's juggling an ex, a fake fiance, and a noona-killer who all work in the same building-she has to get them to play nice.

So happy you're both recapping this now. It's a gem of a show and I just love to hear your thoughts on it! Can't wait till you catch up! I am loving this show its my current addiction and cannot wait for friday and Saturday night just for this show.

Curious question marriage without dating dramabeans apologise, but

I watched the first two episodes when I was really tired and had trouble following the sequence of events, and the logic behind. You saved me a lot of time and head scratching! So far I love the acting and the chemistry between the couples or would-be couples.

I love this show. I love the cast and really like Jang-mi a lot. I don't get the criticisms about her. Plus the chemistry of the leads! I don't see the complaints about the lack of chemistry either. Anyway, my biggest shock was Sun-hwa. I've watched her since Invincible Youth so she'll always be Blank Sunhwa to me, but she's surprisingly good as Se-ah and she looks better now than before maybe due to maturity partly, and some tweaks from surgery too.

Jul 28,   The fake engagement is beginning to change from a little white lie meant to help Ki-tae and Jang-mi each get something they wanted, into a monster that's growing beyond their ability to control. Jang-mi especially starts to realize that this thing is getting out of hand when it (and her suddenly enthusiastic new mother-in-law) start Continue reading "Marriage Not Dating: Episode 8"/5.

Looking for novel in all the wrong places? Now, try the right place. Aug 25,   Marriage Not Dating was a relative success for tvN (it reached a high of during Episode 13 and mostly stayed within the 2range which is good for cable), but it's a far bigger success for Yeon Woo-jin and Han Groo, who showed fantastic range and now each have a leading role in a well-received drama under their belts. They were both so /5.

We have the same schedule. Tried Trot Lovers but after the last episode, I have to let that go. I'll watch It's Okay, It's Love and see if it's any good. My week is fully booked with rom coms and I'm in heaven. I really hope that this drama continues being awesome because I just love seeing our leads banter.

So cute! I agree about SunHwa. Not only have I struggled through the long drought of dull and mediocre shows for weeks, but then I get slammed with two of the greatest shows yet - this and Fated to Love You.

What is really interesting to me is that the lead girl in each drama are so different from each other, yet both are totally lovable and easy to relate to. If nothing else, they would upset a lot of the old school ajumas watching. I totally agree! I saw the epic typhoon evasion yesterday and can't imagine the quirky Jangmi anywhere else but cable network xD.

Thank you for recapping. The news about this show failed to impress me even though I do like both leads Thank you Show. Kim Hae-sook is awesome in everything, isn't she? Kim Hae-sook in IN everything, too. I wonder how much time she spends going between shoots. I guess if all of these actors were stuck in 7 season shows as the same character like US TV, it would get boring. It must be better to be able to try on different personas every few months.

Finally, someone's recapping this! I like the show so I want to spill out my feels. I've seen it until ep 5 and it's starting to tick me off.

I just feel like there are so many characters and they're confusing me. I love Yeon Woojin so I'll probably stick to it hoping that things will be better. Plus you guys are recapping it! I think I get you. Probably because up until now the center focus of the show has been really towards the main leads.

Though I really love their approaches onto the conflicts and hijinks of those two, I couldn't help but feel hanging around about the other roles' motives or something. Anyway, up until now I still love the execution so hoping they could maintain or even surprise us on next episodes. I'm so happy you are recapping this. I knew there were things I missed like thiswon bid So far I watch mainly for the comedy.

It really makes me laugh loud The visit at the parents Is this a friendship? Yes, a couple of episodes later it seems to me that they know each other well and are sort of playing each other like showing Hoon Dong how douchy he is, or that Yeo Reum and Hoon Dong don't believe Ki Tae's dating. Still, there is also Jangmi Oh My Freakin' God, I am so happy that you are recapping this drama because it's just so freakin' good that I thought it was such a shame that no one is talking about it.

So, I ended up recommanding it to every site I know XD. They are just so hot, cute, adorable, hot, cute and adorable together lol. Han Groo and Yeon Woo Jin have such a great chemistry together. And they are portraying their characters so well. Like really, those roles were meant to be acted by them.

I really thought it was going to be the usual romcom storyline with contract marriage but no, it's so refreshing. It takes the formula but plays it with such wits. I'm enjoying this show so much! Can't wait for the next batch of episodes. Your comments are exactly how I felt while watching this show. Crossing my fingers that it gets better and better!

Just checked out the first ep. Yeon Woo-jin is so charming. I do like that his character isn't the typical drama jerk. Not bad. Because of Yeon Woo-jin, I will continue to watch this one. I like Jinwoon, but his character smiles too much for me. It's all very curious. Han Groo is the bomb diggity, and I am enjoying her acting immensely. I also love me some Yeon woo-jin.

I can feel the love starting to develop slowly but surely. I think it was most evident with their "date", with Jang mi smelling the flower and smiling, and Gi tae looking at the pictures The scene where they both tried to get popcorn at the same time was cute too :D. His constant smiling grates on my nerves and takes me out of everything.

He just seems like a pretty boy actor trying to come off as handsome on screen instead of an actual person. You're not the only one, haha!! I want to slap him every time he does anything bad to Jang Mi and appears with this silly smile in his face.

But the show is so fun and addicting, I can forgive this smile issue I thought the same about the second lead character. He does smile alot that it kind of annoys me. Hope his character isn't going to be like that throughout the entire 16eps! Not that i want him to end up with Jang Mi no matter how good looking or charming he is. Can't wait for the next eps. I knew Han Groo was going to be amazing and I'm happy she's finally getting a chance to shine. But it's Yoon Woo Jin who became the pleasant surprise.

He's giving such an amazing energetic performance and he has great chemistry with Han Groo. We had almost 6 months with very few dramas worth watching and now it seems almost every new drama is worth watching.

Here and there it reminds me of Kim Sam Soon - in big ways with the first ep: Girl gets dumped upstairs at hotel while Boy purposely bombs his mother set-up blind date downstairs.

Little ways are the guitar background music - I don't know why exactly - but it puts me in the same feeling set. Right up there with KSS. The way she sticks up for herself - I cheer loudly in my living room.

I've been talking about it all over the internet. Does anyone else talk like him? Mostly, I love how they waste no time anywhere telling the story. From the way it starts in the middle - to the rapid fire dialog and fast movement between scenes. The writers have a LOT of script written, it seems, and don't mind sharing it all with us.

And here is the best part - it's all "Show don't tell. We are not being treated like idyots. They both can be loosely out of control and crazy but such vulnerable and somewhat lovable.

She is not that too pretty but just enough to charm viewers to like her character. Now its time for young actress to snab leading role! Thank you very much for this surpriseI checked The website couple of days ago to find out if there is a recap for this promising drama. Now I am glad to see this post. And I had been wondering why dramabeans hadnt made any recaps? But, here it is! Thank you for the recaps. Like girlfriday said, it's a refreshing rom com! I'm so glad you're able to recap this show!

Its so much fun and even though it has light elements it gives some depth to all the characters that I was really not expecting, its a show I cannot predict, as all the characters seem very different in comparison to the usual tropes a contract marriage storyline uses.

After the sad fest that was gapdong am grateful 4 some comedy on a weekend again. And is it just me or are Jang Mi's ex's comic mannerisms exactly like whats his face in witch's romance u know the best friend to the male lead?
