I can finally go to bed happy at am. Damn you K dramas messing with my sleep pattern. I honestly thought we were going to have a threesime when they were feeding each other at the end. Not gonna lie, I kinda sorta want all three of them to live together and have a happy little well-fed family. It's a win-win for her. YR is a great cook, n and sing to her. Gt BF material. KT needs to be loved, but he isn't gonna like it as a 3-some, is he? YR is like an adorable puppy who can cook and sing!
He's not substantial enough to be the sole boyfriend of Jang-mi, but after watching those three interact over dinner, I was like "this is the family that all three of these people desperately need.
I think that the only way I'll be ok with YR continuing to take up so much screen time is if all three of them are together, drinking and eating and laughing. Ok maybe I'm the only one who doesn't mind the scenes with YR not just because he's so cute I swear! Meanwhile, as was pointed out in the recap, KT and Crazpants SAalso may serve the same purpose - as both struggle to maintain their pride, SA has clearly gone off the deep-end for it, while IF KT manages to deal with it noticing it is the first step, as you said!
Mom serves as the illustration of the future for this way of living. And OMG a show where I actually sympathize with the mean cock-blocking mother-in-law!! Never thought I'd encounter that! In my group of friends, I think i'm the only one who is not bothered by YR.
My friends are annoyed at him with so much passion, i'm scared that I might eventually hate him. However, it didn't happen yet. I am still indifferent towards him and I enjoy his eye smiles.
I don't mind YR that much either for the same reason as kepogee. Also is it just me or does anyone else here think that YR looks a bit like Rain the eyes and that sweet smile!
I think that he is a really interesting character, actually. He is a fun mixture of looks, positive attitude, charming behaviors, good - for- nothingness and a tough background. I liked all the scenes with him and I actually thought he was way too forgiving.
I liked Yeo Reum's character from the beginning, actually. I'm extremely happy that Ki-Tae realizes his feelings first because I think that him caring for Jang Mi and dealing with it is a much bigger step for him towards change then it would be for Jang Mi.
He's so determined to keep his fortress of solitude but admitting his feelings is already a large stride towards the right direction. This drama has been such a wonderful surprise and I'm so glad I was introduced to it because it's been a while since I've been so obsessed. And in turn, Jang-mi will realize that just dating guy after guy is no guarantee she won't be alone. Real feelings and chemistry have to exist, and I don't believe she and Yeo-reum have that deep level of understanding that is necessary for them to keep going.
As a matter of fact, I think that if she knew Ki-tae liked her, she would drop Yeo-reum in a heartbeat because of the connection and chemistry she has with Ki-tae. Ki-tae insists on never liking her, and maybe she's accepted that, so she has no qualms about being with Yeo-reum in the meantime.
If ki tae had step up back them it would of been gg. I want more scenes with him and jang mi but having yr there to initiate his feelings was good but I don't want yr always in the scene with them anymore I find myself wanted to ff all the scenes of them but I don't want to miss anything between ki tae and jangmi. I think that's the general consensus with everyone on Yeo Reum haha! I think part of it is just due to the fact that Jinwoon a total cutie pie i love has VERY limited acting capabilities!
I feel like if the role had been given to an actor who could give Yeo Reum more depth we may not dislike his scenes with Jang Mi as much. It might jus be the bad acting that is putting everyone off.
The main guy is very poor at acting but the 2nd lead has come in and stolen a lot of the spotlight even the the otp was suppose to be the first guy. I say hyun hee and YR are in the same acting category because they jus seem so boring but there for the pretty. Haha YR smiling face scares me. He smiles in every scene.
When he is sad he smiles. When he is yelled at he smiles. Is it part of the character because of the abandonment issues? Seriously, Show, can we clock in some more alone time for our couple please? I'm pretty sure she had more alone time with YR in this episode, but I'm letting it slide because at least it got KT all worked up. YM spend too much time with YR already, it is not only irritating, it is getting boring as well!
How many episodes we will see her kissing KT in the beginning and then hugging YR in the end. Even YM should realize there is something wrong with it. Time to come up with something fresh. I also cannot bear to look on YR smiling face!! I am however still very curious as to how this will all play out. By the time Jang Mi falls for Ki Tae which I assume is the end game, she would have gone out with all 3 guys. Hmmmmmm Another thing, maybe cos it's a pet peeve of mine, Hated the fact that they didn't clean up after they ate.
I mean, it's not even their house. That's just bad manners. I wonder, though, if they might have been so tired after the scare she had and all the wine they drank?
What bothered me most was how much of the pasta they left; Weren't they eating and drinking for a long time? I was just thinking that's not like JM and YR to let food go to waste.
They were eating up a storm. Unless YR made more batches. What a lovely episode. Yeon Woo-jin's expressions were spot on haha! It was definitely his episode to shine. All of his reactions were awesome :. I especially loved that moment when he was getting all bent out of shape over the massage chair, and she just pinches his sleeve and asks if he's okay, and then he just gets this look on this face as if he's been completely disarmed by her.
She just has this way of getting past his defenses now and I love that. She doesn't try to control his life, but she doesn't leave him alone either and I love that. Also the other big moment of the episode was definitely him exclaiming that she can't be left alone!
I love this statement because it sets us up for Ki-tae's biggest conflict: Will he choose to live his life alone like he's always wanted or will he make sure that the person he cares about the most never has to be left alone again? Haha, the question you posed about Ki-tae's conflict makes it sound like the most epic thing in the world.
I love it. Great comments at the end on Ki-tae. I also like that he's the one who's fallen first, although I don't know how much more patient I can be with Jang-mi and Yeo-reum's relationship. I think it's great that she has another suitor because it's such a fantastic comedic situation, but I just don't get nor like Yeo-reum.
First he was all mysterious and now he's a goofball?
That transition was lost on me if there even was one. He just makes me uncomfortable for some reason. Maybe it's because the drama he should've been in is Pasta. Just joking! But seriously, I think I''ll be okay if we don't have a pasta-making scene each week. Also, I loved Ki-tae's snide remark about how people only make pasta so that they can look good in front of others!
Now that Ki-tae's hooked, I'm waiting for Jang-mi to realize her feelings too. And I hope his mom comes around. I really want to like her, and I hope the drama doesn't ruin her potential relationship with Jang-mi. I agree with YR's transition, he went from charming and mysterious waiter to adorable and pitiful puppy running around I actually want to see more of HD. It would be funny if he's the one that pulls JM and KT together.
Totally agree I find him YR annoying seriously every single time he smiles I smile I need some help? I jus don't get exactly way it is he suppose to do for the show other then being pitied and homeless. The guys 28 years old and a part timer. His scene are more sad and unreal then anyone else. He actually has some charm and character to him.
I don't quite get what his role is either, aside from being some kind of lost wannabe chef. What has he been doing for 28 years that the best he can do is a part time kitchen gofer. That's what Let's Eat is for. And Ki-tae is our lead, but we don't see him performing plastic surgery every week! Sometimes I forget he even has a job. I actually like the 3rd lead from let's eat. In this show she jus seems erratic immature. If YR jus had more character or if the guy can act his role I probably feel different.
I'm glad i'm not the only one who doesn't like YR. For some reason his character just rubs me the wrong way and I can't really fathom what Jang-mi sees in him besides the superficial stuff. He just seems so blah and without much substance despite his whole "I was abandoned as a child" sob story. I think the very points that you dislike about YR is exactly what the writers want you to pick up on.
They want you to see the contrast between a superficial dating relationship compared to a real relationship that would lead to marriage. And that comparison highlights the difference of depth between the two clearly. JM's interaction with YR is very superfically based where her interaction with KT is much deeper and emotionally moving.
The true power of that really shined at the end of the last episode with that kiss. She had a choice of either nurturing her relationship with YR or KT. But in the end she chose KT, why? I actually predict that JM is going to get married to KT eventually She will be stuck in a situation where she could either go on with "protecting" KT or let go and move on with YR, but will push forward with KT in disregard of YR because of her emotional connection and bond with him.
That wasn't how I read it at all - what I saw was her responding to her own baggage and rescuing someone in pain which is how she gets taken advantage of. You know, for someone who keeps telling her not to get taken advantage of, Ki Tae takes advantage of her all the time. She's not letting herself get taken advantage of. She's actively making a choice to help someone that she's come to care about. Love this comment.
Who hasn't been infatuated with someone who is great on paper but who ultimately we don't really connect with deeply? What exactly makes for a lasting, healthy, loving, supportive long-haul relationship? This show is engaging in those questions on a much deeper level than we normally see in kdramaland, from its leads to its side characters.
Both sets of parents represent opposite extremes neither of which are particularly healthy or loving : Ki-tae's parents have a relationship that is literally all about keeping up appearances. They are so emotionally and physically estranged from each other that they hardly even talk to each other, let alone fight with each other. They are a prime example of all surface, no substance.
Phrase and marriage not dating 07 vostfr apologise
Jang-mi's parents, on the other hand, are so wrapped up in their own emotions that they drive each other crazy and can't talk to each other without wanting to rip each other's throats out. They are an example of extreme emotional investment without an ounce of love. In order to root for their relationship, we need to see whether Jang-mi and Ki-tae are able to avoid these pitfalls. They are building a relationship on a foundation of knowing each other to the bone-and if they grow to love each other through this knowing, then they will truly have something special.
But in order for both to appreciate their relationship together, they need to learn to be vulnerable. Ki-tae has avoided being vulnerable with anyone because he was taught from a young age that doing so is the only way to be safe and happy. That's what is so heartbreaking about his attachment to his apartment. When he was a child, being alone truly was the only way he could be remotely happy.
Now that he is older, the coping mechanisms that got him through his childhood are no longer working for him. Jang-mi enjoys her superficial relationship with YR because it is safe. She gets to spend time with a nice guy and doesn't have to worry about him leaving her because honestly, she is not very emotionally invested in him.
I think that's how she so easily bounced back from discovering the deal between YR and Se-ah. Yes, she was sad and felt used, but it wasn't debilitating. Ki-tae, on the other hand, gets under her skin. She worries about him, she feels the need to protect him, but she also respects him. She's seen him at his worst and-perhaps even more terrifying, he's seen her at her worst.
He truly has the potential to hurt her, so of course she is a little gun shy after getting hurt so royally in her last relationship. Not the word I'd use. Dating one of those damaged guys is anything but safe and Yeo Reum seems very damaged. I mean "safe" in the sense that her heart isn't on the line as much as it would be with Ki-tae-or as much as it was with Hoon-dong, even.
Yes, Yeo-reum seems damaged, but you can't get hurt if you're not emotionally invested, and I get the sense that Jang-mi is not incredibly emotionally invested in YR. That may be in large part because he seems pretty guarded and has not allowed himself to become vulnerable with Jang-mi. It may also be because she got to know him as a playboy and is herself a bit guarded around him. Whatever the reason, I think that carrying on a superficial relationship with someone regardless of how trustworthy they are often feels "safer" to those who've been hurt than being in a relationship that demands greater vulnerability.
It can feel like here's more risk involved in a more substantial relationship, because the degree to which you open your heart is the degree to which you can be hurt. It's hard to say with his character because he seems like a bit of a cipher, but I don't think I know enough about YR to say whether he was attracted to JM because he genuinely likes her personality, or if he's intrigued by her explicitly because of all the drama surrounding her. His particular brand of "damaged" seems to come with a tendency to keep people at arm's length.
He doesn't strike me as someone who particularly wants to be known on a deeper level. Ki-tae has a similar tendency to put up walls, but seems completely uninterested in being coy or manipulative about it. It's possible that Yeo-reum is keeping Jang-mi at a distance because he's worried about her relationship with Ki-tae, but I think it is also possible that her unavailability is exactly what attracted him to her in the first place. You're right! His character is completely dissolving itself from what I initially thougt.
I wanna go in se ha past a bit more to see how u turn out the way she did but it seems like yr and jang mi chose different paths after being abandon.
I think that was a reference to the classic French film, Jules and Jim, in which two men are madly in love with the same woman-and form a threesome, of sorts.
Sometimes it means one person has relations with the two others separately, but it could also mean they have a threesome. A Korean short film starring our very own Yeon Woo Jin as a matter of fact.
It always makes me smile and breaks my heart. This drama is just getting better and better. There is a spin to it that makes it realistic. YWJ got some really good telling eyes!
Within a split second; you can see the shift of emotions - frustration and confusion to googly and loving. I'd love to have him stare at me like that, tee hee. It's so enjoyable to see how KT is slowly opening up to his surroundings.

I loved that moment when a he stares as her when she walked in after his video game session and b when he realized that he is NOT okay with JM dating YR, he finally admitting to himself that he has feelings for her!
YR is quite an adorable puppy in this episode. Yeon Woo-jin is wonderful here. I love those actors who didn't start out right away as leading men, who built upon role after role, no matter how small, and then just blow you away with their range and talent.

A part of the reason why I adore this show so much is because I've been watching and enjoying both Yeon Woo-jin and Han Groo over the last few years, and here they finally get to be the stars of their own show and a fantastic show at that!
But here he's even better because I can literally see every little reaction to every little thing play out on his face and it is fantastic. I've become very very fond of his character. Thanks for the fast recap ; I am in love with this drama.
JM and KT are sooo cute. Now that he realize his feelings, I cant wait for his future actions. Even Know YR was a little bit annoying, his presence was really important for KT to realize his true feelings. The only character that I totally dislike is KT's mom. I felt bad for her when I saw that her husband was a cheater. But in today's ep I kind of felt that she doesnt care for KT. She only wants him to marry his ex because of her father's influence. I think Ki-tae's mom's action has a lot to do with her husband's influence as well.
She must feel indebted to the family to a put up with his cheating ways and b try to rearrange a meeting with Se-ah when it's clear that she does like Jang-mi. I think she's just upset that it's all a scheme and not the real deal.
I'm basing this all on last week's episodes. I hope she grows a spine and divorces her husband at the end of this drama. She has to change! I feel really bad for her because of the husband. However that doesn't mean she can do whatever she wants, locking JM, setting up a meeting without KT knowing, trying to separate her son from "the person he likes".
I believe one of the reasons why KT left home was due to his mom behavior since he was child. We don't know how long his father has an affair, is distant from his wife. So right now I can't blame only her for this situation. Maybe she is just cold outside to kind of block her from being hurt however again she is super wrong when it comes do JM - KT.
I am still waiting for further ep tho, since we are passing the half mark, I believe there is a lot more to find out about the family relationship. I'm glad you brought up KT's mom.
The thing that puzzles me the most in this ep is the action she takes in calling S and arranging a meal w her and her dad, after hearing her husband's comment on her dad's influence w his boss. Give me a break! They are not doing poorly, so why would they want to sell their son to the highest bidder?
Given how her husband has been treating her, why the hell would she even lift a finger to help him advance his career?
But then I don't have that kind of crazy ambition to get ahead at all cost or deviousness, so I'm never going to understand. But I despise his parents for this! With or without further advancement, what's wrong with their entire family's current already-comfortable financial position?
Isn't Gi Tae's dad a jerk? Anyone noticed how he insisted Se Ah and Gi Tae should become a couple and that Jang Mi should break up with Gi Tae, but he didn't want to be the bad guy to do anything about it? Poor wife, she really is a pushover where he's concerned. She agreed to be the bad guy, but I guess it's also because it aligns with her own feelings and plans. Poor Jang mi, she should have known better than to bait a sleeping tiger.
She dished it out to Gi Tae's mom and Se Ah, but she wasn't ready for the payback which turned out to be nastier than she could ever have anticipated. What a bunch of manipulative people we have in this show: Gi Tae's dad whose turning out to be worse than his wifeGi Tae's mom, his dad's mistress, Se Ah master manipulatorHyun Hee and even Gi Tae himself started off by being one.
Thankfully he's seeing the error of his ways and is beginning to change Thank you for the fast recap loved it you cover it all and I agree with your insights.
I'm loving this drama. Se-Ah is cray cray. Oh she is cray cray alright!
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?
As for Jang Mi, I wish that the next episodes will at least show character growth. It's frustrating to see her being pushed around by everyone. I love that she has spunk and is able to say what's on her mind when she sees someone being wronged but what I can't understand is why she can't speak for herself when she is in a similar situation.
I think that of all the characters in this drama, Gi Tae has shown character growth. Now he is realizing that there's another option to living alone, that he can be happy by being with the right partner.
I am really hoping that now Gi Tae and Jang Mi have discovered their true feelings will get more scenes of them being cute as a real couple. I don't think YR has gone on a real date w JM.
He keeps trying, they keep making dates, but then sth with GT or his mom would come up, and he's left waiting. Looks like GT is cock-blocking him and JM. I know, I know, they r not the OTP, so it doesn't count.
I guess I'm weird since I'm not bothered by these things. Jang-mi is strong but she also likes to please people so I'm not surprised at all that she gets walked over repeatedly. Come on, she was totally walked over by Dong-hoon in the beginning of the drama which should already tell us what kind of a person she is. She can tell a person to get lost if she doesn't care about that person but once there's any sort of connection or sympathy, she will bend. I don't think she has changed but rather that this is who she IS and that she needs to change from this like Girlfriday wrote in the previous recap.
When it comes to Se-ah, come on, why would you believe what she babbles about the baby. She's not exactly a reliable narrator now, is she. It's clear from her reactions to Ki-tae's rejection of her that what she really wants is HIM.
Yes, Se-ah is not even pretending it would be accident but that doesn't negate the final goal: Ki-tae himself. I'm pretty sure she's used to manipulating Ki-tae during their relationship so that is her solution now also. And she knows she can team up with mom, too.
Think, that marriage not dating 07 vostfr well, that well
Imagine if they really would have a kid and then Se-ah would go to his parents and say "hey, look, this is your grandchild! What a pity his parents aren't married I feel actually sorry for Ki-tae's mom for teaming up with Se-ah, because even though she's a master manipulator and martyr herself, if Se-ah would marry Ki-tae, mom would lose him. As Ki-tae says, they're similar and while they have the same goal they can work well together but at some point there would be friction and as Ki-tae's wife Se-ah would easily best his mom.
Also, for Ki-tae not reacting more assertively to Se-ah crazy stunts, I think that us understandable.
He cares for her a lot - they almost married, after all and they had been friends long even before that and stayed friends afterwords. He doesn't want to hurt her. I used to have a friend who did more and more crazy things and I let it go on for MONTHS before finally putting my foot down simply because I did not want to hurt him and tried to understand him. We often avoid confrontation as much as we can. I wonder why Ki-tae would continue to keep someone like Se-ah in his life, friend or not.
A broken engagement would change relationships, and I couldn't imagine being cordial with my ex-fiance especially if it came to a nasty and abrupt end like with Se-ah and Ki-tae. I could buy their friendliness-if their characters were different.
But like what girlfriday says, no one is calling Se-ah out on her crazy bullshit, and that is something I can't get past. I was the last man standing because he was my friend and I wanted to be loyal and support him. So this really happens. And just like you I wouldn't want to be friends with my ex but a lot of people do.
So I'm quite fine with this and I can see why they are still friends. Se-ah has been Ki-tae's friend for a looong time so it's understandable that he didn't want to ditch her completely after the break up, also, because he didn't want to hurt her any more than necessary. Se-ah, on the other hand, clearly just went back how it used to be and I would argue that she thought that she could still keep Ki-tae for herself.
Even if he didn't marry her, at least he would not marry anyone else, either and so he would be hers in some way at least. They are also colleagues and worked together on volunteer projects. THAT part of their relationship may be what kept them near each other, too. I don't buy that he was the best choice for her breast implants.
What female would want her present or ex do that? At his age, he certainly can't be the most experienced. I agree completely with what you said about Ki-tae's reaction to Se-Ah. It wasn't so much him being weak-willed and unassertive as it was him trying to be considerate of her and what she used to mean to him.
I know she's bat-shit crazy, but they shared a relationship and it's probably hard for him to see someone he once loved stooping to this level. While I am creeped out by Se-Ah, I find myself, first and foremost, just finding her to be really really sad.
And I think rather than being angry with her, he just finds her really sad and doesn't want to hurt her. I also think that him not pushing SeAh away goes with his character because he's not really confrontational. He only really blows up when he's really, truly backed into a corner.
He prefers to deal with things by ignoring them or distancing himself from them like with his parents and he has been keeping his distance from SeAh for the most part.
She's the one who keeps showing up out of the blue and trying to worm her way back into his life. I think he assumed that if he just didn't go along with the baby thing, she would eventually drop it. That's why he was so stunned by the lengths she was willing to go in this episode.
Like he knew she was manipulative but to this extent? And about something that's so serious and life-changing? That's just crazy. And even here, when he finally rejects her, he can't even bear to say anything.
He just shakes his head and leaves but he squeezes her shoulder to let her know that he isn't rejecting her completely. He still wants to be considerate of her even when she's done something this inconceivable. I think Se-Ah just want some kind of connection with Gi Tae and what better way to be tied to him forever than to have his child.
I think she knows it's over between them. Arawn, I understand your sentiments on how Ki Tae reacted with Se Ah's advances and I completely agree that he probably doesn't want to hurt her feelings, which is fine.
But remember that regardless of how Ki Tae treats her, Se Ah will still end up hurt in the long run. It takes a LOT for people to call out those who are dear to them. We have no personal relationship with Se-ah so for us it's easy: why doesn't he just tell her to bugger off! But Ki-tae truly cares for Se-ah and so he doesn't want to hurt her which causes him to try to just ignore or brush off her crazy stunts.
He finally rejects her only when he has left with no other choices but submission or rejection. I assume that if Se Ah is talking, she has an angle. That fake-contrite "apology" "I really did want to help you" was chilling. I kept wondering if she practices those insincere things in the mirror like a proper sociopath - because I think the only legitimate expression we see on her is frustration that she didn't get her way. Apparently, the answer is Because in ep 10 we see her doing something very similar.
Still trying to figure out what Se-Ahs deal is. In the end I hope Jang-mi stays true to the character that she has been in the first episodes. The fact that Ki Tae may have gone through with it had Jang Mi's phone not interrupt makes me lose a little respect for him. But not as much as Se Ah, who is turning into a nutcase. Just because Hyun Hee got pregnant the first time she slept with Hoon Dong does not mean she will get pregnant the first time she sleeps with Ki Tae.
So is she planning to lock him in a hotel room until she succeeds? The ending was rather contrived to give our couple forced alone time. They were lost in the mountains; how did they expect Yeo Reum to walk his way out of the maze back to the guesthouse?
No wonder he caught them kissing, he must have realized his task was impossible. I could not understand at first why Jang Mi was itching for her turn in the Truth Game because personally, I hate being picked for Truth Or Dare, but as soon as she spilled the beans about their fake engagement, I was like, "Eureka. Love the OST by Ben. Are these fake-out opening scenes going to be a thing now? Today's foretelling reminded me of Replylike who is Shi Won's husband?
Whoa so fast GF!!! I dont mind a good cliche. All the romcoms ive watched ended up having the cliches by the second half cough, reply but i still like them. True that ep 7 and 8 were a bit of a letdown feels draggy and all but we get to see jangmi's hidden feelings and all.
I get that she was supposed to be outgoing but i guess sometimes you just want to be complimented so badly you momentarily fall into the sad candy category. Totally understandabe for jangmi, whos been through so much. Plus to me she still doesnt feel like a doormat, she probably has too much affection for gitae's mom that she unconsciously try to to always please her. I felt a bit awkward when they were critiquing Jang Mi's nose for plastic surgery.
I know Han Groo's nose is not petite and kind of on the bulbous side but I really like her nose. It's what makes her. Like SIG and his eyes. Thanks for the super prompt recap, girlfriday! I was not expecting it to be up so soon!
I cannot wait until the next episode because I hope the trend from this point on will be more scenes with just the OTP. I distinctively remember that for one of the drama reviews here, you guys said that the particular leads had so much chemistry you could watch them underwater basket-weave for hours and that would be just fine. The screen just lights up with every scene that involves the two of them. I had not really seen either actors in anything before this drama, but I think I can honestly watch them watching a cake rise and I'd still be happy.
Yes, this! Tat is how much i love the OTP, keke. Thanks for the recap GF. And thank you for calling out GT no being too slow on pushing SA off. I get not wanting to hurt her but when someone is this crazy nice is not going to work.
Totally agree with your comments here's hoping. Haha, while I was watching the raw version of ep. I was really worried that KiTae was going to just go along with SeAh's plan for a minute there and if he had, I think I might have stopped watching the show.
There would just be no coming back from that. Like SeAh is clearly crazy and SO messed up but I also feel bad for her because she's desperate and lonely and it's really sad that it's easier for her to go through these elaborate lengths to try to be with KiTae when all this time she could have just told him that she still loves him and she always loved him and she never wanted them to break up.
I feel like everyone on this show needs real therapy - there is so much repression and desperation and loneliness and they are all dealing with it in such unhealthy ways. I do feel like SeAh's character would not be out of place in a makjang drama but I can see how she fits in here too because truthfully, she might be crazy but so is KiTae for being willing to come up with such an elaborate ruse to force his mother to leave him alone and stop trying to marry him off and furthermore so is his mother who is so angry and bitter and unhappy in her own life.
I think the last two episodes really showed not just how manipulative his mother can be but also how trapped and angry she feels about the life that she's been living and essentially feels stuck in. Even though I know that she was trying to drive JangMi away by making things hard for her but honestly, nothing that she said the expectation that she'll quit her job and just have babies and be a housewife; the fact that what she wants is no longer important and she has to focus on keeping up appearances and submitting to everyone else's desires is unusual for a daughter-in-law of a rich family.
And honestly you could see the bitterness and the hate that she has for her own life there. I feel like KiTae's mother is quietly seething that her life has come to this and on top of that, her husband is stepping out on her and doesn't show her even half the attention he shows his mistress.
But she just has to grin and put up with it because that's what's expected of her as a lady of this caliber. I would love for this show to end with KiTae's parents getting divorced and his mother going on a journey of self-discovery and working on all of the issues that spending her life as a martyr who stuffs her feelings down and wraps herself in a cocoon of coldness and propriety has left her. And I wish JangMi's parents would stop fighting for two seconds so they could decide if they actually still want to be together and if not, then get divorced!
It drives me crazy that her mother just keeps divorce papers in their restaurant just waiting to be signed. How is that healthy?! Is there any wonder that their daughter has a warped, unhealthy view of relationships and that she has such a hard time understanding how she should be treated in a relationship? Oh man, it got cut off. This is not the time to kiss her. She is not in the right frame of mind for that. This is just a pet peeve I have with male leads in dramas in general though.
I really want these characters to take a page out of the Witch's Romance play book and just have an honest discussion about where their heads are at so that they know where they stand and then they could decide how to proceed with their families and the fake engagement afterwards. Why is it so hard for people to just talk about things? Anyway, that being said, I still like this drama. It definitely has its cute and funny moments still - loved them all playing around in the water - and I'm excited to see how things progress now that there are real feelings on both sides.
I knew that this was how Ki Tae would demonstrate his intentions, because he doesn't trust words. Would you, if you lived with the mother who said one thing but did another? Se Ah does it, too - in KT's world, words are a way to manipulate, and they're never what's true. Only actions matter. That's why Ki Tae was vulnerable to all of the touching between him and Jang Mi, and why her kiss completely undid him. Maybe they should join the cast of it's Okay, it's Love, no shortage of therapy needing people there.
Despite the bat-crazy second leads, and sicko "best friend. I interpreted the family meeting differently. Ki Tae allowed it to happen because he's at a different place with his feelings.
He is trying to make their relationship a reality so meetings with the in-laws fit right in line. As far as Se-Ah, her methods show she's nuttier than squirrel crap but I think there's potential to legitimize the crazy. In this episode she tells ki tae he knows why the baby has to be his.
Well we, the viewers, don't know why. The writer could attempt to make that into something rather than the character fitting the typical psycho-second lead lady.
If it were only about a baby, she could have moved on to YR already! That's obviously a good gene pool. Well, maybe except for the brains :. Yes, Se Ah, and Yeon Hee has lame characters. But, I dont think they prolong the situation too much.
In vice versa, I think the timing is perfect. If they all 6 do not go on holidays together, Jang Mi will not realized her feelings towards Ki Tae. When we live virtually, eventually we cant differentiate between reality and imagination. It feels just like me. I watched dramas too much, sometimes i'm too lazy to go back to reality. So you suspect that there is more to her cryptic "YOU know why it has to be yours.
Some genetic thingamabob? That's the surface answer that she wants KT to arrive at - but I think the real answer is that it's a way to keep him under her thumb for the rest of his life. I like SA, purely because her motive is totally new. I've never seen that in a drama before! Lingering feelings are in nearly every drama that I've watched. But thanks again girlfriday, love all your recaps :D. I just want to know how Yeo Reum managed to run back to get Hoon Dong on foot after they spent so much time lost in the woods, in a car.
I like to think there's actually a resort parking lot right off camera that they've just spent hours driving around. It's too bad all the whiplash twists in the story for this episode took away from the payoff.
They'll just have to make it up by kissing more later, I think. Kt mom is starting to become a whole new low for me. If someone talk bout my kid like that I would go off. I would wonder does she even like my child since everything coming out of her mouth are insults. This actress seem refreshing from hotel king and now this but it jus seems like she is a one truck pony. All she does is keep a stoic face and nothing more. It is not a disease but rather an incomplete closure of tissue of the human embryo during gestation.
I like that scene because it makes JM sees KT in a different light; "ah He is not Okay so I totally enjoy Marriage not Dating despite every weird stuffs that came along. I just don't get it why the heck Se ah wanted to impregnanted by Gi tae so badly when she knew Gi tae doesn't love her? Is her family wanting her to be pregnant or what?
Or is she just plain crazy? And Yeoreum is so damn hot. I love him so muchwell not as much as I love Gi tae but he is so damn sexyy. People complain about his smile but his smile is adorable.
But whatever I love dorky Gi tae morrrre than I love sexy Yeoreum. Hoondong is weird but lovable. Hyunhee is so hopeless. Mom appeared less much to my relief.
And daaaaaamn I love Marriage not Dating.
Marriage not dating 07 vostfr
It is superfun. I miss the earlier version of Jangmi tho, the one that appeared in earlier episodes. She had that crazy eyes and weird movements, love her. I wish she returns back to her old weird self. Apart from ho wacky and weird the characters have gotten, I still have an immense amount of love for this show.
Sometimes I felt that this show has tried a little way too much on bringing us that "breezy, airy, light" romcom that it's forgotten to develop their characters and relationships and focuses on the comedy and nonchalant stuff instead.
I don't get Se-ah, period. I thought at first that she really has changed for the better. But really. This is the girl who was capable of luring Gi-tae to hospital for fertility test. Could she be really doing anything for anyone with no hidden agenda?
Should have known better, self, should have known better. I don't know about you guys but her crying in the end when she got rejected by Ki-tae kind of gets me. I know she more than just deserves it, but it's just so humiliating, still, being in her position. I really, really, hope that the show would pick up from here because I'm dying for some Gi-tae Jang-Mi action and tired of Yoo-reum.
Ah finally. I must say i wasn't happy with all the kissing between the wrong people. But the last kiss made up for all that. I was one step away from jumping to ship yeoreum.
Thank goodness! I am back on team Kitae now. Thanks for the recap girlfriday :. Was that the last kiss of the night? Didn't see that one coming. Maybe they're too toned for me, I'm still for a normal body any day. And that kiss in the end, I hated the angles. Hopefully next episode we get to see more of that kiss.
I ws just wondering, I watch the show on viki and all the comments are like hatred towards hyun-hee. I lke her character; to me she is real. I need someone to explain why everyone hates her. And she did have sex with an intoxicated man without his consent, and I might add, without protection. This wasn't a heat of the moment event, but a deliberate action on her part to have him physically.
And boy, did she get him. I just want to know, or get a hint of, her motives for wanting to be with HD. At present I don't believe she loves him. Earlier I thought she was a gold digger but not it's become murky which makes me not on board with her crocodile tears all the time. Can I get a tiny clue please?
To me, Hyun Hee is selfish and not a nice person, but doesn't even realize it, and likes to constantly portray herself as a victim. She never thinks about others' feelings but feels wronged when people don't care about hers enough.
At first, I thought she was only pretending to be hurt by Jang Mi's actions to guilt-trip her, but now I think she might just be delusional.
I guess we all know people like that, the ones who always think they're the wronged parties. When I started it I really wasn't expecting much, and was so surprised how much I enjoyed it. Love the chemistry between the leads, Han groo is really funny, only other thing I have seen her in that I can recalled was scandal and I am glad she has gotten a leading role. Tvn really churns out some surprising dramas, this and high school king of savvy has become my favourites of the week. I can't believe you guys are recapping this!
What a treat! Thank youuuu! You should check out "Killer K" from a few years ago. Han Groo is awesome, but in a totally different, Tarantino heroine kind of way. She was really underused in "Scandal," but it seems like this show's gonna be her new "Leading Lady" break out roll. Me too! I kept checking Dramabeans several times a day hoping this would get recapped. I'd almost given up. I'd even resorted to leaving notes in other threads "hinting" if this could be recapped.
Had no one to talk to about how awesome this drama is so thank you thank you thank you girlfriday and lollypip.
Lol i wanted to do the same for koalas playground. She keeps talking about a good rom com and I'm like hello? Everyone needs to check out this show. I died laughing at the end of episode 5. They're cold openings are so well done and not cliched lie most dramas.
Thanks for recapping! Now i get to to share the love. Me, too. Thank you for recapping! 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!
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. One overnight trip sends everyone's relationship status into turmoil, which shouldn't really be a surprise given how many ulterior motives are floating around in this love hexagon. I'd say the true miracle is that they even last 24 hours without coming to blows. You'll be amazed at how many shirts come off and how many Continue reading "Marriage Not Dating: Episode 9". Other name: ?? ?? ?? Gyeolhoneul Gidaehae Not Dating Marriage Anticipate Marriage Marriage Without Love Marriage Without Dating. Description: Wealthy plastic surgeon Gong Ki Tae is a successful and happy bachelor who does not want to find himself a wife.
My current entertainment too - Fated To Love you and this one Marriage Without Dating I stumbled upon entirely by accident, because the captivating offerings out there were so dismal. Have yet to pick up High Sch King of Savvy the title put me off but will soon - seems an enjoyable ride for me. My current entertainment too - Fated To Love you and this one Marriage Without Dating I stumbled upon entirely by accident, because the offerings out there were so dismal.
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.
Can consult marriage not dating 07 vostfr Thanks! You are
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!!
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. 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! 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. 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.
Right! think, marriage not dating 07 vostfr will last drop
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.
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. 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. 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. Skip to content.
