I have actutally rewatched some of the episodes already because I love the attraction and tension between our two leads. I don’t believe for a moment that either of them is happy the way they’re living, though they’ve convinced themselves that they are. What’s great is that they each already have the other’s number, and they each hold the key to the other finding balance. When they start to realize that their way isn’t working for them anymore and learn to meet in the middle, they’re going to make a great team. 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. He asks if it was hard today at Ki-tae’s house, wondering if she really wants to get married that badly.
Happy Endings ( Episode 1
What you have, in all honesty, is two couples who would have divorced a long long time ago if they were in the U.S. 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 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.
Jang-mi criticizes them for socializing while she and Mom worked, when they’re the two here that aren’t even related to the deceased. She’s even angry with Grandma, sobbing that www.datingupdates.org she thought she was nice but she let her be taken advantage of. She’s not wrong, but it’s a bit too far, and even Ki-tae shoots her a look that says, Too much, dial it back.
Marriage Not Dating Episode 11
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. Wow, I thought I was the only one – and I almost NEVER rewatch episodes.
Kokdu: Season of Deity ( Episode 14
He tries to intimidate Yeo-reum, who stays frustratingly unaffected. 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.
The two of them, who do not like each other, are entwined in a “fighting each other” way. Just wanted to say that I never thought I’d hear the Once Upon a Time in China theme song used in a Korean rom-com. If KT can learn from her how to let loose, and she could learn to protect her heart more, they would be a perfect team. Why JM fell for YR….i honestly think it’s just because she always wants to be with somebody, she’s attracted to him, and he was nice to her…not much more than that imo. I think it is a case of nobody wants to confront it, and nobody wants to cause a scandal that might affect his promotion. Han Groo is a total badass as well!
Hoon-dong gets peeved that he seems friendly with Jang-mi too, and Yeo-reum just reminds him that they’re broken up. Hoon-dong counters that she’s just nice to everyone, so it’s not what he thinks. She gets spotted by a snooty ajumma who turns out to be Hoon-dong’s mother, since Jang-mi of course went to his house looking for the wrong mom. His mother calls her a stalker and regales her with the terrible things Hoon-dong said about her, including the hotel proposal that terrified her poor son. Poor thing finally hears the truth and a tear rolls down her cheek.
She’s kind, yes, and put herself first before others but…that’s all? 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. The show is uniquely funny, and also has a massive amount of heart, and I’m already in love. The next day Jang-mi rides her bike home, almost crashing when she sees Ki-tae’s mother talking to her mother outside, thanking her for a favor. Jang-mi and her mother head to their restaurant, where Jang-mi is informed that she’ll be helping Ki-tae’s family with his grandfather’s memorial.

Meanwhile, Gi Tae is eager to remain single, but as his family insists he marries, he proposes a fake engagement to Jang Min. Thank you two so much for recapping this show!!
Wondering when Yeo-reum will call, Jang-mi heads to Hoon-dong’s restaurant to look for him, and hides when she sees Hoon-dong sitting with a woman whose face she can’t see. Jang-mi tries to sneak past them into the kitchen, but Hoon-dong catches her mid-sneak. He’s thrilled to see her, but when Jang-mi sees that the woman with him is Hyun-hee, her face falls and she runs. I’m not sure I like the conniving little glint in Hyun-hee’s eye. Ki-tae’s mom lets herself into his apartment and begins bagging up all of his instant food.
