Looks like some more teamwork may be required to patch up their broken families, and more importantly, their own hearts. At a lovely outdoor party, Ki-tae follows Jang-mi as she walks away from him, but she stops when he calls her name. They stand for a long moment, faltering every time they try to speak. Finally Ki-tae tells Jang-mi to go first, and braces himself expectantly for her words. Ki-tae argues that she agreed that marriage was burdensome, but Se-ah says it was only to protect herself so that she could stay near him, if only as friends. Ki-tae just laughs scornfully, and says that things were good when there was distance between them. Se-ah finally breaks and cries that she told his mother because no matter what she did, all he thinks about is Jang-mi.
If u took this case to court and reverse the gender would u say then it wasn't rape. He admit the next day thay it was a mistake on his part because he didn't even remember doin.
He wasn't in the right state of mind to make a logical choice. So there's REAL rape, and what? It only counts as rape if it involves the kind of violence that breaks your bones and damages your genitals? If that doesn't happen, then you haven't really been raped? You've just I just don't even know. Rape is sexual intercourse without consent.
Marriage not dating recap ep 13
It need not involve brutal physical force, and to acknowledge this does not in any way diminish the terrible experiences of people whose rapes involved violence and physical coercion. Hyun Hee knew Hoon Dong got thrown out, she was there when it happened. She didn't know he lost his job. I think that's the theme of this drama - Marriage Not Dating a. Marriage Without Dating. I just feel that their story isn't necessary, really. I don't quite understand Hyun-hee, and what motivates her.
She's materialistic for sure, but now she seems sincere towards Hoon-dong and willing to marry him after he literally disowned by his mother. Honestly I never care for her or Hoon-dong throughout this show, so I don't really mind if they marry or not. I think she's close to JM because of her rich boyfriend. Not that she intended to steal him from her when they were still together but more like tagging along with JM to get to know HD's friends, and eventually letting herself into the riches's circle.
She's a cunning opportunist, so when JM broke up with HD she didn't wait long to snatch him away. But I'm relieved that Se-ah wasn't that evil to use the same tactic to entrap Gi-tae. Come to think of it, I want to take back my earlier comment about HH seems to be sincere towards HD, because now I'm not sure anymore.
I will ask a shallow question. For a cable channel. On a wekeend. Where all the characters have slept around before. For goodness sakes why haven't the OTP had some make out or bed scene? Did anyone else notice a few episodes back when Ki-Tae was dragged to the sperm bank and he said he'd been really busy so he had taken a break from intimate relations Who's he been doing it with if he hasn't been having sex with Jang Mi or with Se Ah?
LOL I'm pretty sure that was his pride talking. He didn't want the receptionist to know that it's been much longer than that. Actually it was the receptionist who asked him whether he had sex in the last 3 days you need to have given a break of a few days before a donation and he fibbed not to accept it actually had been much longer than that.
This reminds me of something else though: I assume Ki-tae downing the beer in the truth or dare game when asked how far he went with Se-ah means they went all the way? That doesn't really bother me but considering Jang-mi's proposal to Hoon-dong was in a hotel room with the bed all prepared with roses and such and knowing Hoon-dong's superficiality I assume they had sexual relationships as well and that I find a bit tasteful I mean the fact of Jang-mi dating two friends one after the other like that - same of course is valid for Hyun-hee but I have no respect for her as a person so I am not surprised she would have done something I would find distasteful.
They're normal adults so no surprise there. Idk maybe he hoped that JM would be disgusted with GT and stop liking him? It makes sense why he's nervous and unwilling to answer it coz it's a bit awkward to declare to someone he likes that he slept with his ex-gf even though she already knew that lol I don't know about JM but if I were her, I wouldn't want to hear the man I like shares that info with me.
I mean of course I knew you slept with your ex-gf but shut up I don't want to hear you say it out loud :p YR really enjoyed putting him in an awkward situation, the cheeky bastard. I didn't like this turn of events. I feel the show went original to cliche. I don't understand se-ah and yeo-reum's purpose to the story.
They were used like props to prolong the inevitable and as delicious eye candy. I wish that either the leads had a deeper connection with the 2nd leads or that the writers would have used them in a different way. Aw, I admit I wasn't expecting the ending to go that way, but at least they're finally on their way to each other for real now! I got super scared when Jang-mi told him to go to Se-ah though because while I'm totally with her on her reasons for pushing him away, saying something like that and throwing the phone would have been the first time that I had a hard time understanding her actions so I'm glad that doing those things led to her ultimate realization that she can't let him go :.
Poor Ki-tae was finally so ready, I wish he hadn't told her to speak first!!! I can understand why he reacted the way he did because he has no idea that she likes him and to suddenly hear those words. But seriously. Thank god they started running for each other. Because it's time for some honesty. Their scenes with their parents were so heart wrenching though, especially Jang-mi's with her parents.
Seriously, that poor girl. It makes their separation all the more sad when their families fall apart as a result. Them being together just made everything in their lives better and I just want them to all be a big, happy family minus the sleazy dad.
BUT I'm glad that the show was able to make fun of itself a little with the scene between Hoon-dong and Jang-mi. I know I shouldn't have been laughing, but their pity party was freakin' hilarious! And it was refreshing to have Jang-mi simply find out about Ki-tae's feelings from him. Ahhh, the separation, it hurts, but it hurts so goooood.
I so wanted Ki-tae at least to have sent photos of the proposal display to omoni as she requested so that Jang-mi could see it. It was such a reversal from the first time day met during which she laid out a similar display for his friend that it was a shame she never knew about it. I know, me too! And if her mom had seen it then she totally would have known he was being sincere!
I seriously want her to get that proposal SO badly now. Like it better happen. In fact, it needs to be even better than the one Se-ah had the pleasure of crashing.
It needs to be epic. I am not Asian so I don't know how common these grand gestures are in real life but I have a sense dramas make people expect these things and life starts to imitate the art after a while.
For example, I find typical drama date to be quite formulaic. So I generally find these kinds of things quite cheesy. But in Ki-tae's case it was so unlike him and showed how much he loved and valued Jang-mi to do that for her that I found it adorable.
He was so excited and happy with himself, too. Yea I totally agree about it was great to have Jang-mi just find out about Ki-tae liking her. There was no fanfare, just his best friend telling her and her realizing their feelings were mutual. It's so ridiculously realistic and simple which makes it all the more heartbreaking.
Maybe he can propose to her again soon This time with complete honesty and their families approving wholeheartedly! Was the noble idiocy really necessary when it lasted all of five minutes and an expensive phone was lost in the process? Nevertheless, I do think this is a realistic conflict because Mom, being a victim of cheating, will never forgive cheaters. So Jang Mi legitimately believes she will forever be branded as a cheater by Mom and will never be able to recover from that, thus decides to leave Ki Tae "for his own good.
Took her long enough, jeez. I am just thankful the noble idiocy was contained to one episode.
This must be Hoon Dong's purpose in the show. The ensuing scene of them wallowing in self-pity was priceless; I don't know how Han Groo and Heo Jung Min were able to film that without bursting into laughter. I am glad that after their really bad breakup, they were able to remain friends who genuinely worry about each other. I was counting on those loose lips. I love when Ki Tae blew up about Dad being a two-timing bastard because he was only speaking the truth, and Mom needed to hear it.
Jang Mi's mom better be planning something with Dad with her request for a divorce, like trying to drive the two kids closer when they try to convince her to stay or pushing Jang Mi to turn to Ki Tae when she needs a shoulder to cry on; otherwise, I do not understand why Mom would selfishly do that at a sensitive time like time. When Grandma said, "You've been watching them all this time, so you will know, too," I wish she meant, "you will know they have real feelings for each other," which we confirmed last episode that Mom does know.
I was actually surprised it was an LG instead of a Samsung, yk maybe they threw it on purpose in the HR so that they'd get her a proper Korean brand Even though Ki-tae had bought it she didn't even need to dump the phone.
She just needed to get rid of the SIM card. Regarding cheating: not only was she not with Ki-tae when she was seeing Yeo-reum but also she wasn't going behind Ki-tae's back. He knew about their relationship. That, plus the fact that her initial intro to JM was also the title of HD's ex and the quick recovery into KT's current albeit fake.
That was some '2 timing' as even while officially 'dating' YR the dating as the 3 of them understood it she was already developing feelings for Ki Tae, but yet not ending it with YR in a more decisive, cleaner cut. Even when it was clear YR knew, JM never quite came out to clarify anything with YR, nor did she officially cut off their relationship - which is why they were still kissing last wkend, when she interrupted the YR kiss. Jang Mi was still confused about her true feelings until the end of this episode.
It might have been wrong for her to continue stringing YR along, but honestly it is consistent with her character to cling to a relationship and do things the messy way. I think it is possible for relationships to get complicated and people to get hurt even if no one did anything really wrong. This was a difficult episode, and I'm not sure I liked it as a whole some of the angst just didn't move mebut one breakthrough that I DID like was the breakup of Jang Mi's parents.
I actually really empathized with Jang Mi's wish for her parents to stay together her reason for the sham engagement definitely resonated with me a lot more than Ki Tae's desire to be left alone - it's such a childlike desire - but that's also my problem with Jang Mi. As an almost year-old woman at least according to the character profilesit's more than time for her to view the situation through adult lenses, and accept that a marriage can be saved or not only by the 2 people participating in it.
Yay for growth! Albeit painful growth. I think that Jang Mi's parents should have broken up a long time ago, it is obvious the are at constant war so why keep dragging it out.
But people do that - they are so afraid of uncertainty and change that they stick with a bad situation. Thanks for the recap. Let's have more cute moments with our lead couple. Hope it's god riddance now for Se Ah and Yeo reum.
YWJ and HG play their characters so well. I enjoy watching their lovely couple moments together and now they would have to deal with the parents. This is definitly alot better then i expected. I really love how hoon dong and jang mi are friends and not awkward. Even Se ah, seemed redeemable after telling Ki tae to go after Jang mi which was a nice twist for her, though i dont doubt she may try something else later, i would love to see her, instead of being the pathethic, revenge-driven, typical female second lead, being Jang mi's friend, since they are in some ways pretty similar.
Marriage Not Dating ep 13 part 1 sub indonesia
Also, I have no Sympathy what so ever for Yeo Reum. Setting Jang Mi up was not cool, but not even feeling slightly guilty about? Honestly dont know what his deal is. I really dont want him to mess with Jang Mi and Ki Tae anymore.
I thought since u were doing the two recaps this one was goin to take longer but kudos to u. Onto the show. I love how everything played out. All the imaginary scenes were so cute. I wish they hurry up and get together so we can see some home living hijinks from the both of them. All in all the progress of this episode made giant leaps in each character.
JM being alone but I was so happy that KT was the first person on her mind before she realized jt. I'm waiting to see him sell him house he loves so much so that he can show his family how much he truly cares for her.
Kt mom is making a turn for the better but I'm surprise she is still putting up with her husband. I would be too embarrass to even meet the person. This was probably on re of the better episodes for me since we got so few screen times with the second leads and jm and hoo. Crying to each other about how their lives suck was epic and it would of been much weirder if jm didn't get fired so glad they kept thay realistic.
The noble idiocy act for this I understand because she doesn't want more distance between kt and his mom and I see where she is coming from. I'm dying now since we don't even get previews. I personally don't mind the pacing of the OTP. I think it's realistic and quite necessary, especially for MND, seeing how that's the main plot of the drama- to get into a fake marriage and eventually fall for each other.
If they were to get together too soon, it would only mean that they have to keep arguing with their parents that they truly want to be together. But having said that, I guess I can't help being frustrated at the same time.
It's only natural for many viewers to be so irritated at the pacing of the drama, seeing how we're so affected by the OTP because they're just so endearing! Their chemistry is spot on. I guess this is why I can't wait to see them finally confessing their love TO each other soon. It pains me to see them so fond of each other, and yet be so conflicted for not being able to confess at the same time given their current situation.
I honestly think I'm the only person not bothered by the pacing or by the fact that the truth has only just come out. The show is about a fake marriage. Why would I be upset that they continued to pretend to be fake engaged for so long? The important players the parents hadn't found out yet so the ruse could totally continue. Plus I think the show has done a great job of exposing all of the issues facing the OTP with regards to their ability to accept their feelings for one another and actually choose to be together.
Share your marriage not dating recap ep 13 will not
That doesn't just go away. If anything, I wish the show had spent more time allowing the OTP to reflect on their issues and start working through them so that when the happy ending comes, I can feel satisfied that these two actually have the ability to HAVE a lasting, healthy relationship. As it stands now, I still think they both but especially KiTae need a lot of therapy to get in a good place first. To add, I did feel somewhat frustrated at the way things were playing out; however my issue was not with the fake engagement BUT with the fact that the writers chose to use the second leads as wrenches to prolong the conflict and keep them apart.
I'm perfectly fine with them telling me that KT and SA needed closure but to have her throw herself at him repeatedly and to go to ever greater lengths to be with him when he has made it very clear from day one that he's not interested in being with her - that frustrates me.
Second leads serve a purpose but eventually it gets to a point where it's time to wrap things up with them and focus on the OTP and I wish the show had done that a little faster. I'm afraid that's what the writer would do. Purposely leave us hanging here expecting the inevitable and then crush our hope.
I'll curse the writer if they don't confess their feelings in the nxt episode. It sure as hell has been dragged on too long already. I'm losing my patience here. I have a feeling that both of them could still pop up with an eleventh-hour scheme to break up the newfound couple assuming that Jang-mi and Ki-tae acknowledge their feelings soon and throw one last wrench into things".
Oh I worry about that too though I think they can't do much damage now even if they try because it seems that both Gi-tae and Jang-mi finally realize that they can't deny their feelings any longer. My heart sank when Jang-mi asked Gi-tae to go to Se-ah, and sank even deeper when he really grabbed Se-ah's hand and walked past her.
I seriously hate their moment of noble idiocy in this episode, but fortunately it doesn't last long. I don't like Hyun Hee at all but she did not "rape" him, had a one night stand by manipulating and seducing a drunken guy when he was at his weakest, yes.
I have no idea why this is irritating me and I am sure nobody is saying that in the literal sense hopefully but it is a touchy subject for a lot of people, a package that comes with a lot of trauma and psychological problems. On to the episode, I found this week's episodes to be the weakest. I know angst is necessary, but denial angst is something I can't get behind.
Can marriage not dating recap ep 13 Unfortunately! Listen
And it's not even for the right reasons. It did not make any sense. But the last scene gives me hope. I cannot wait for these two to be together. Furthermore, the way Hoon-dong is portrayed I'm not sure he would have acted any differently if he was sober. He was in no condition to give proper consent.
If it had been the other way around, people would be outraged. The other way around? Well,it is one thing to be seduced by a guy when you are drunk and another to be raped by him. People would be outraged. Honestly, I will be outraged too but I would have said the same thing then. You see, consent when you are drunk is a little hazy pun intended. In no way did it look like Hyun Hee overpowered Hoon Dong and forced him against his wishes to sleep with him and his reaction the next day made it clear that yes, at that point when he wasn't sober he was willing but he regrets it later on.
For people who seem to be really hung up on Hyun Hee's act as NOT rape bc Hoon Dong was drunk and lonely, it can actually be considered rape. Consent is not hazy at all especially when intoxicated, people are not in their right mind to give consent. If people were to look up this situation, agencies and support groups that help rape victims definitely define this as taking advantage of someone sexually and as rape.
Others are claiming that Hoon Dong participated for them to actually get pregnant. However, that's not really the case, a guy can be 'ready' without him controlling it or even have the decision to make it happen if someone gives him a 'helping hand. And as someone who knows the lifestyle of clubbing and having one night stands and encourages her friend JM to have one night standsit's hard for me to believe that she doesn't consider the possibility of getting pregnant accidentally which makes it even harder for me to believe that she was not angling towards the possibility of getting pregnant after saying she is not a nice girl.
KT even says at one point that Korea is not kind to single mothers. It's not like she was overcome with passion that she just had to have HD and she does seem to have a calculating mind. Her entire storyline would really just frustrate me if she had a no-consequence, happy ending. HD was very responsible about the whole situation and I'm very interested to see how he would live with her after everything is said and done. He seemed to happy and accepting at first but has said to KT that it might have a fleeting moment after finding out HH's lie about her mom.
Even after he decides to stay knowing that she's manipulative, will he keep staying with her after getting to know her better and the initial novelty of starting of family wears off as reality sets in? He might but I don't know if I can picture anyone being happy in this equation. Yes, technically if you are intoxicated and someone were to make a move on you, then even if you are willing about the whole thing, it is still considered rape under law.
It might be a really harsh thing to say and I am in no way diminishing the value of such an event, but it's only a personal opinion and we can all agree to disagree on this one :.
Is MND subverting the sweet and lovable best friend of heroine trope here? But that's my fav k-drama trope! And poor Hoon Dong wants to for the first time, probably do the 'right thing' by marrying her.
Will she change her manipulative ways? I doubt it. Will he be miserable his entire life? Most probably. Is their kid going to have a lot of childhood issues while growing up? Sometimes as a non-native audience we have to let things go that don't sit right with us.
Wrist grabs disturb me and scream "domestic violence! The show clearly does not feel that it did anything wrong with Hyun Hee and that relationship, so I'm not about to put that on them and essentially rewrite the show when that was never their intention and that is not the story they are telling.
Having said that, I don't think it hurts to point out double standards in a show. Not rewriting the story, but more identifying where the story is weak. So while I don't think it is fair to say she raped him according to the show she obviously didn'tI do think it's fair to point out that the show is operating on a double standard. This episode was so much love and I really appreciate angst without having it dragged out for too long.
I know everyone mostly are against noble idiocy but I totally understand why Jang-mi did what she did. It's a difficult situation because they were already lying too much. Now all of a sudden, the truth is just so much more harder to believe. The whole throwing phone in the river was such a fantastic metaphoric scene. I interpreted it as she Jang-mi thought it would've been right for her to let him go, that she should let him should, that she could But then she throws the phone with his name flashing on the screen before it falls in the water.
And its like this sudden realization that she can't. She can't let him go for someone else, that she can't have his voice die on her like that, that she isn't okay without him in her life It was such a perfect moment and so freakin well executed.
Gah, this show is SO good. I just adore Hoon-dong and Ki-tae's relationship. They're the definition of best friends in every regard because even when Hoon-dong always seems to have the wrong info, he always knows how Ki-tae feels. He can read him even when the latter feels the need to conceal every emotion. It's so subtle but clearly obvious.
I hope the writers explore their relationship more as we progress. Now Hoon-dong and Jang-mi are just sugar, spice and everything nice put together lmao. I was giggling as they cry their hearts out. I'd love to have that kind of relationship with my ex, and this works for them much better because being besties suits their personalities more. Everyone's relationships in this show is so well written and everyone just seems to naturally blend with each other in terms of personalities.
I'm very thankful for the lack of Yeo-rim and limited Se-ah in this episode. Hopefully Ki-tae and Jang-mi doesn't allow them into their relationship anymore and that they work on getting their families believe that their love is true this time around. It's a difficult task, given all the lies and deceit behind them. It's gonna be a while, but I hope they'll eventually prevail because their families were much happier when this wedding was to happen, than now that its broken.
Best scene? That was a hilarious musical choice that basically made the episode for me. I really hate that they ended the episode with them running towards each other and did not show them actually meeting. I feel like there is going to be some kind of interruption I really hope they have the glorious reunion and reveal of their mutual love that they should! For the first time, I thought HyunHee was ok in this episode. At least she came clean about being shady and manipulative I liked how HoonDong noticed that JangMi was going away sad Because he is sweet and thoughtful sometimes.
I cried with JangMi when she was talking to her dad about the reason why she let the show go on for longer than she should have Maybe I was just feeling particularly grouchy on Saturday but this episode just really, really annoyed me. Maybe the awesomness of this show at its start made my expectations too high but this episode just really, really disappointed me. The only character that I truly care about at this point is Ki-tae's mom.
Think, marriage not dating recap ep 13 think, that you
I want her to have an independent woman moment, kick her loser husband to the curb and rock her stylish new hairdo with a brand-new empowered attitude. Everyone else, though? As little experience as for-real-dating this pair had, they did have the besties through-thick-and-thin routine down. At least Ki-tae tried, what's with the brain damage Jang-mi? So much for character continuity there.
I can't even care about this conflict because I know they'll end up together anyway so it just seems stupid and forced. Unless they don't meet as they run back to each other and we do a time skip into the future where it shows how much they've matured on their own then this whole episode served no purpose at all. She's a ball of crazy and it truly worries me that she's a doctor.
Who would let this woman operate on them? She actually needs to go to a psych ward. It's the only ending for her that will satisfy me. That or if she decides to drop off the grid and go explore the world to find her true self, be one with nature, yaddah yaddah turn the crazy bitch into a feather-in-the-wind, puka-shell-wearing hippie! Don't care about her either I loved him as a character and a rebound for Jang-mi but when he finally decides to be proactive about making sure Ki-tae doesn't steal his girl he does it in a hurtful way?
Not awesome. Also, very unlike how his character had been portrayed up to now What was that about character continuity? Jang-mi's parents? I like their relationship towards Ki-tae but that's about the extent of it.
They should have been sent to jail back when Jang-mi was 5 for mistreatment. The girl almost died because they abandoned her! How is it no one has raised this issue? I'm surprised she didn't grow up even more messed up with an upbringing like that. The baby-duo? Couldn't care less. There's nothing about them that's worthy of my time Hoon Dong is starting to be one of my favorite things about this drama.
Recap And Reviews Kdrama Marriage is not dating: Episode He demands to know if what Mom said was the truth. He asks what she was thinking?! Jang Mi asks that if she recap what she was thinking, would he believe her? She always has another agenda! Ki Tae remembers that time where he said she was dating Hoon Dong for money. 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.

His character gets better and better for a mama's boy with questionable taste in boxers. Argh, that cliffhanger! Just let the OTP get together already!! With just 4 more episodes, I better get some gooey couple-y scenes before the ending And Yeo Reum and Se Ah better butt out of the way! Ki Tae and Jang Mi, I adore these two so much! Loved all the fallout this episode. The parents reactions were really consistent with their characters and also really heartbreaking :'. However, the ending was really frustrating!
It felt like the writer was artificially prolonging the back and forth and mis-communication. And the second leads continue to just make me throw my hands up. I was really surprised HD and HH ended up with a happy ending- I honestly thought HH was faking the pregnancy just to manipulate him, but I guess it turned out she was sincere? Ki Tae's mom should kick the old cheating fart out of the house and have him stay with his skanky mistress for good. I still can't believe her denial that she still wants him around after what he and his mistress has embarrass her in public.
She needs and deserves to get herself a new life. Still don't like Hyun Hee She got what she wanted in the end and married a rich person. Didn't she realize Jang Mi lost her job when she was gushing about her forthcoming wedding to Jang Mi former boyfriend? Jang Mi had feelings for him previously, so it still would have hurt.
I'm going to throw something at my computer if Jang Mi and Ki Tae can't find each other at the beginning of the next episode I feel they might miss each other.
YR will make a great chef and JM will make a great alcohol sale person!! Maybe she will end up doing alcohol import-export business. Why threw away a perfectly good phone? I half expected her to jump down and get the phone back once she realised her feelings. You know phone these days are built to be waterproof.
SO excited for next week episode! Ofcourse they'll be having problems on how to face each other parents. Esp looking forward on how Ki Tae can gain back the love from Jang Mi parents. Hahahaha this is getting interesting. There is some kind of poetic justice in Ki tae getting his elaborate proposal ruined, the same way he ruined Jang mi's in episode 1. You know 'what goes around comes around' and Karma's a bitch and all that. He certainly could appreciate the effort that went into it, though.
Although what I took away from it was that Ki Tae really does turn into his mother under pressure.
His actions at the end instead of saying "I love you, please come back to me", he tries to manipulate Jang Mi into running after him made me yell at the screen "Jang Mi, are you sure you want to live with this for the rest of your life?
And his smooth assurance that Yeo Reum is a momentary blip because Ki Tae thinks he's soooo smooth. That remark actually made me laugh. Ki Tae, son, you don't even know, because you won't actually open your mouth and talk about your feelings. Just like his mother. He has a plan in his head, and accepts no deviations from it - because he wants Jang Mi, he's convinced himself that he can win out, without even once talking to her about how she feels.
Jang Mi, are you sure you want to marry into that? Yeo Reum is sooo much less complicated. Just sayin'. I agree with everything you're saying except for the YR part. I would be overjoyed if we never saw him again. But yes, KT is so much like his mother and will really have to work to overcome that but he'll first have to identify the behaviour before he can be a truly worthwhile partner to anyone. Also Yeo Reum may seem less complicated now but he clearly has his own deep-seated baggage that he has not dealt with.
If JM had to be with anyone else, I'd rather it be someone completely new who is actually well-adjusted and not still carrying around the scars of wounds inflicted upon him in childhood. Haha, I thought that even as I was writing it. I was going to add in brackets does such a person even exist?! Maybe I should have said "relatively well adjusted"? I dunno - because the most relatively well-adjusted drama character I can think of is Jae-Yeol from "It's OK", and he's having active hallucinations.
Maybe the moral of the story is that JM should pick the one whose dysfunction she finds least annoying. Such a person do exist in this world - they're called normal person. But in drama normal person just don't exist because normal is boring. I have to disagree - everybody carries scars from their childhood and baggage that they can't put down from their past.
The most well-adjusted people are just aware of it and try to compensate. What I mean by normal is not everybody in this world had terrible childhood that scarred them for life. I take myself for instance coz I think I had a normal childhood that didnt scar me badly or turned me into a bitter person today. Am I weird that I don't carry baggage frm my childhood? When I was a child sometimes I got beaten by my dad if I did big mistakes or if I've been too mean or too rude to him.
Did all that scar me? I don't think so because for me it's normal occurence in life. What I mean is my childhood life weren't as bad as the things portrayed in most dramas, so I take it as normal Anyway agree to disagree!
Sorry, can marriage not dating recap ep 13 excellent
I mean, honestly, I was too busy being pissed at Jang-mi for asking him to go to Se-ah in the first place. It may have been the wrong reaction from him, but he was gearing up to tell a girl he loved her for the first time in a long time Remember that he has no assurance that Jang-mi likes him back although I think he understands that something is between them. He was obviously very hurt. But if he had started his talk with a confession, if might have turned out better.
Everybody needs to learn to use their words, darn it. This is true. I admit, I really wanted that to be his moment to cut through the bullshit and I was definitely really disappointed with him even if I can understand why he reacted the way he did.
I definitely want some honesty from both of them next episode! Well, in all fairness, he did spend a number of episodes telling her how much he hated "girls like [her]", so she probably thinks she's just imagining whatever affection she sees from him not to mention that when she asked, she thought he laughed at her.
Not from the beginning but lately after finding out kt is a playground kid when he teases his crush. My sentiments exactly! Though I understand why she did what she did, I really want to strangle JM for saying that to GT when she already knew that he likes her.
And GT seriously needs to get rid of his darn pride. Someone here commented about whether it is really necessary to put noble idiocy plot that lasted all about 5 minutes in a drama. I bet the idiocy will last much longer if it's a 20 eps drama. I really enjoyed the fall out in this episode, especially with the parents.
It really felt believable and consistent with their characters and a long time coming. When he picked up that bat, oh boy. Still I feel like some good is coming out of this - it's unfortunate that JM's parents might get divorced but their relationship is incredibly unhealthy and they're finally realizing just how much they've hurt their daughter and warped her view of relationships over the years.
I think you make a really good point that even now, KiTae still doesn't have the respect and consideration for his mother that he should. The two of them still have a long way to go and I'm still waiting for cheating dad to get the boot and I'm hoping JangMi will help them get there.
I also am very curious to see how the OTP manages to reconcile their families to the idea of the two of them being together now.
He and JM commiserating was also cute - they've really come a long way. Kitae imagining JM was adorable too. The hell? She seemed to be going down a path of noble idiocy and I did not like it but then the real ending happened and I was somewhat appeased. Come on, show. There are only 4 episodes left.
Let's get these kids together, make up with the parents and wrap things up nicely. No more misunderstandings are necessary. Uhh, how dumb! That was the time to say it all and they blew it! We could of been spending some serious episodes focused on Jang Mi and Kitae cuteness.
Plus the time needed to fix the family issues. Next week please don't disappoint. The actors did a fabulous job with these roles and they've definitely put those two on the map for me. And because I didn't get to comment on it in the last recap, I still love, love, LOVE the moment between Kitae and his mother on the phone and the ones here between KiTae's mom, aunt and halmoni.
I love how much this show emphasised the importance of family. It did a tremendous job of showcasing that even if they're dysfunctional and you're not close to them - your family still shapes you into who you are in a big way.
It was wonderful seeing the love between the women in KiTae's family and seeing his father get his comeuppance and Mom get her fire back.
I was waiting for that. Just like how JangMi's parents made a scene at the hospital while making up - seeing that made me realize that she got her "scene-making" ways from them. I also loved the realism in their decision to get married. They know firsthand just how badly marriages can go but even so, they're still willing to give it a try and try their best to love and support each other despite whatever twists life may throw at them.
I also loved the cleverness in the writing, the crazy sound effects, the awesome ost and the cute effects on screen. When this drama started I forgot about it and all the news that were posted here. I was just checking viki and it appeared, I read the description and watched episode 1.
This drama made me laugh, even cry a little and made me care for many of the characters. Ki-tae and Jang-mi are so good and so cute together, and I only can agree, the family ct in this drama is one of its strongest angles. Maybe is not a perfect drama but the crazy second lead and the flaws here and there never made me abandon it, because I was so in love with the good stuff that I could pass through that. I still can't believe that this drama is over.
I'm so going to miss it. Been playing the OSTs over and over again. It's my first time seeing Han Groo act and I'm even surprised because she's so young! Her acting is on point and she's so good at comedy. Yeon Woo Jin's characters are so scary and he was a killer in Arang but the first time I saw him was in Ojakgyo Brothers and from then on, I knew he'd do well in a rom com. I admit that this drama kinda bored me halfway through it and I actually stopped watching.
I had to catch up on 4 episodes at once. It's the 2nd leads. I love Sunhwa and Jinwoon but omg their characters are so annoying. Then the bestfriend was just annoying too. Still, I enjoyed the drama and it was a fun watch among all the dramas airing now. Gi Tae's "I know that there's no such thing as love that last forever. Despite that, I want to try loving you forever.
T like seriously, no kidding. Usually, I get bored half way through and find myself FF all the annoying and useless bits. But I thoroughly enjoyed each and every episode of this one! I mean, they are pretty annoying at times.
But somehow I get the satisfaction of seeing the leads jealous of seeing one another with their own respective cockblocker hahaha.
If we were to compare, there are definitely many more worse second leads out there. The one thing I truly appreciate about the show is how it works so well to build up relationships so realistically, whether it is between a mother and son, mother and daughter-in-law, husband and wife etc. The last episode wrapped up things pretty nicely.
Loved the scene between grandma, aunt and mom. How cute! Crying and hugging each other, leaving cheating dad gobsmacked whilst they celebrate living together hahaha. Seriously, those two are amazing. Yeon Woo Jin is so damn charming in the show, so much so that I wanna get a Ki-tae myself. A girl can dream. Han Groo did a great job as Jang-mi too.
Those crazy eyes! Her movements are always so dramatic yet still somewhat natural at the same time. Looking forward to see her future projects for sure. This is the best drama I have watched by far! Can't wait for the drama that is supposed to replace it too!
Thank you for recaps! And thank you dramagods for such a zippy and hilarious rom-com. Oh, I must also thank whoever did the sound effects in this show. Gaaah, is it over already?! I am super glad however, that Gi Tae's mom was able to get the treatment she deserved all these years, and that Gi Tae's Dad didn't get a free for all happy ending just because he was the main character's father.
Same with Jang Mi's parents, I kind of wanted them to have a chance to lay down all their grievances especially Jang Mi's mom because I feel as though the reunion will be temporarily. Anyhoo, that's some of my thoughts. All in all, a great show, I hope that tvN continues to produce awesome shows like this :. Such a satisfying ending to a solid drama.
I have to admit the earlier episodes were my favourite, it went flat in the middle for me but the ending was done nicely. I cried when the three ladies cried when grandma finally let go of her daughter in law and cried again when mum offered to live with the other 2 ladies and left dad to go eat crap for all they cared.
Sooo Good. And yay for a show that uses more than the main leads in an effective way. I still wouldn't say all characters were likable or well-developed and used as in my other favorite show of the season, High School King of Savvy.
I liked the portrayal of the leads and their families best here - including grandma, aunt, even sleazy dad and his mistress. Hoon-dong was funny once you get past the first few episodes where he was quite repulsive - and he did get his comeuppance in the shape of his wife insert evil grin here.
Se-ah and Yeo-rum I cared for even less except for during the beach escapade. I thought at that point they might have an interesting friendship between all of them but after that unfortunately things went back to square one.
It might be the writing, the acting or a combination of both but they have not added anything aside from being plot devices.
Marriage not dating ep 13 recap - Find a woman in my area! Free to join to find a man and meet a man online who is single and seek you. If you are a middle-aged man looking to have a good time dating man half your age, this article is for you. Aug 16, EPISODE "Don't lean and don't expect" As the Sandglass OST plays for maximum dramatic effect, Jang-mi and Ki-tae fight violently-they scream at the top of their lungs and shove each other around. Jang-mi starts to cower in fear and takes off in a run, and Ki-tae chases after her to yank her back and yell at her some more/5. 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 /5.
Putting that weakness aside there are many things I loved about the show. Ki-tae's silent reconciliation with his mom over the phone was awesome. Loved that he understood her value too late and there was no turning back. The couple who seemed like the perfect family ended up divorcing while the ones who were always fighting ended up together because they actually loved each other in their own crazy way.
It was short, cute and touching. Aw, I loved Missing You. I just watched it last week. The story surprised me with how lovely it turned out to be despite it's shortness and Yeon Woo-jin is wonderful in it.
What a fitting end to a wonderful, hilarious, and heartfelt show. It had it's missteps here and there, but, all in all, it did everything I wanted it to and then some.
As of now, it's my favorite rom-com of Any drama that puts a smile on your face and makes your heart feel full just thinking about it is an amazing drama in my book. I adore Yeon Woo-jin and Han Groo so much and this was the perfect drama to showcase just how far they've come in just a few years time. I'm so attached to them and their characters that it's actually hard to see them separate, but I'm glad that it was them that got to be each other's partner in their first leading roles because they really play off each other so fantastically.
I can't wait to see where they go from here! And I loooooooved it. So much. What a perfect wedding hahaha! I do have to agree with Jang-mi the Yeon Woo-jin looks very sexy all wet in fact, I noticed that in the very first episode too, lol and theres something so hot about the way he wipes his face before grabbing her for a kiss.
And if that wasn't enough, the way he smiled at her before going in for more! But what I loved most was the way he proposed! There's no way of knowing what obstacles and rough times they'll have to go through, so it's lovely the way he declared that despite that, he has faith that the good times with her will make what ever roadblocks they face in the future worth it.
And then the end just drove in that idea that even if they're making a scene at their own wedding, at least they're facing the issues they face head on and get back to smiling and laughing in no time :. Honestly, I usually write so much more and I feel like there's a lot more I want to say, but I'm actually in the middle of rewatching the drama haha, and writing about is making me want to return to watching it LOL.
Perhaps, I'll return later and write more :. Such a big fan of both leads and it was so refreshing to see a mother-in-law who was not pure evil just to supply a drama with a stock villain. Very rarely do I love a series all the way through but this definitely ranks up there as a show that's perfect to binge-watch on a rainy day.
It's too bad that the guests did not get to hear their vows, but one of the sweetest parts about this episode is that the audience got to hear those vows during the second proposal when Ki Tae promised to do his best to love her forever and Jang Mi promised to trust him. Their affection for each other is real and palpable and not just for show.
Maybe cos i have sons. Same here. I cried, then ran to the kitchen to make my sons' favorite chicken dish Cutting this into two since my comment is too long! Sigh, the episode I hate commenting on most is the last. Because it just means I gotta accept that the end is here. But oh well I loved this show; I didn't for a moment think it lowered its level and even if I started seeing it late, I totally feel the withdrawals.
This last episode is my favourite I think, mostly because the family ties are so well addressed rather than sugar coated.
I loved that Jang-mi's parents aren't suddenly romantic and that Ki-tae's mom decided to live with the women who's been by her side through it all. I just see it happening in real life to these characters who seem so real and alive themselves. Everyone felt organic rather than puppets controlled by a master. I really started hating Se-ah somewhere in the middle, but I'm glad she was redeemed quickly. While I know a majority of you guys felt her character changed too abruptly, I think her main personality remained the same.
She was still controlling but maybe focused on another target - first it was to get Ki-tae back, then it was to make Ki-tae's life perfect. I'm glad she got her happy ending even if I really expected the father of the child to be Yeo-rim. As for Yeo-rim, I was really sad he left the restaurant because I felt his bond with both Jang-mi and Ki-tae was way more powerful than some temporary jealousy.
But in a drama that focuses on characters being realistic, its good that he's moving on because eventually things happen, people change as well as circumstances. I also really loved the portrayal of friendship and loyalty here. It's actually very understated and sometimes ignored with many other things happening, but it's one of my favourite cts.
They all looked out for each other, were there when the other person needed a shoulder. Everyone has a different connection and they aren't bonded as a group but more so individually. It's just so awesome.
Marriage Not Dating Recap Ep 13, what techniques can be used for both absolute and relative dating, online dating for marines, partnersuche ohne anmeldung osterreich. 31 ans. Uniquement pour les rencontres serieuses! 38 ans. Femme 61 ans. Dec 16, Marriage not dating ep 13 recap - Rich man looking for older woman & younger man. I'm laid back and get along with everyone. Looking for an old soul like myself. Marriage Not Dating: Episodes by LollyPip. I love it. Marriage Not Dating is light, airy, and funny while also delivering a nice healthy dose of heart and depth. We're starting to get glimpses into characters' pasts that indicate that not everything is cuteness and romance in these people's lives, and I think the show is setting a nice balance between hilarious hijinks and real.
And finally Ki-tae and Jang-mi. I feel like I've said everything I wanted to about how great they are together and as individuals. But I can probably go on forever. Instead, I'll just say the reason I love them so much is because Yeon Woo-jin and Han Groo are just so good at portraying them.
Their chemistry was intense yet warm, blazing yet comfortable, easy yet charming. Both are ridiculously talented and I expect great things from them in the future. I hope they get a chance to be main leads in network channels and take on bigger challenges. Definitely the breakout stars of the year for me. I've never seen them in anything before and I'm just so mighty impressed.
I can probably carry on, but I'll stop lol. I love this show and I hope that those who haven't seen it yet will give it a try. I'll miss it, but endings like these make me feel like they all exist in the world I live, just that maybe I won't get to see them onscreen anymore.
That makes me feel better actually, which in turn makes me feel delusional LOL. Han Groo is awesome! TvN seems to really like wedding scenes in their dramas this year. They seemed so mature in this drama. Jin Woon needs to work on his acting. He needs to loosen up and act more natural. There is nothing more intimidating than a flock of meddling ahjummas. I can't help but wonder how it feels for Yeon Woo-jin and Han Groo to go from having so much skinship with one another while shooting the drama and, as we know, the real time far exceeds the reel time to none presumably after the drama wrapped.
Their pheremones must feel confused! I'm excited for both of the leads and enjoyed them each immensely in this, but I've got to give extra props to Han Groo for being such a natural at the physical comedy. Anyway, they made a delightful OTP that I shall remember fondly for a long time. I super loved that Mom, Grandma, and Aunt were equally thrilled about staying together and giving Dirtbag the boot.
Especially in the context of Korean family values. I would've liked to have seen Jang Mi and Ki Tae's Mom enjoying a newfound bond with one another on this ep.
Loved the series. Marathoned it in 2 days. Always wanted to check it out coz the first episode recap sounds really good and am glad I get to marathon it instead. Thanks for the recaps. I agree that both leads really gave their best in their roles Hopefully they will move on to bigger and better projects.
Thing is I feel that cable sometimes used lesser known actors who doesn't command the same buzz but somehow produces better results. It's telling that a number of cable dramas are actually more entertaining than the ones on the main stations.
It's a peculiar trend but as long as us viewers remain the beneficiaries MnD finally finished. Man, those aunts of GiTaes are so damn annoying. They don't live with him one apparently lives in the USdon't keep up with the family I saw that look of surprise on their faces when Queen Mom told them their bro has a woman and yet they place all these ridiculous expectations on KiTae because "he's the sole family heir" and on their sister-in-law prepare for my dad's memorial while I wine and dine!!!!
There's a reason why you three were not invited, you know. What a fun wedding. Although, I would die if that happened to me. Usually, guests wait until after they get some alcohol in their system before they create a scene at your wedding, but nope, this was all sober. Such is Jang Mi and Ki Tae's life. At least the busybody Gong ladies now know about Dad's infidelity.
I was relieved Show didn't go down the cliche path of Jang Mi being pregnant when she threw up because I did not want a child to be a factor in his marriage proposal.
Ki Tae and Jang Mi will go down as my all-time favorite couple. Their bubble bath flashback reel starting from the time they met to the time he fell for her brings tears to my eyes. They belong together. I cannot express how much I adore all the cute facial expressions Ki Tae makes. No one does it like Yeon Woo Jin. I cannot think of any other actresses who could have embodied Jang Mi as well as Han Groo. One of my favorite character traits of Jang Mi came in episode 4 where she couldn't bring herself to half-ass the cooking even though the point was to mess up the memorial.
As Ki Tae pointed out, "Why are you working so hard? Just burn everything," but her morals stopped her from doing that, and I love that about her. Also loved how Ki Tae peeled all those chestnuts after saying he wouldn't do it. They both say they won't do it but do it anyways. Jang Mi and Ki Tae were so realistic even while everyone else around them was unrealistic. This was such an unexpectedly heartfelt drama that I will miss.
Thank you for recapping it, girlfriday and LollyPip! If you watch it, you'll see that your above statement would make her very, very happy :. She is so multi talented! Never knew she was a singer. It shows that when she has something in mind she commits wholeheartedly to accomplish it. Like in singing, diving and acting. She is in some ways like Jang Mi too, esp.
Thanks for sharing, Chandler and alcoholicbubbletea! I know she lived in China as a child, but her Mandarin is seriously so impressive. Han Groo was a guest on an old episode of Strong Heart where she revealed she debuted at 4 years old and talked about her boss Joo Young Hoon.
Thank you for the recaps. It was what started me watching. And what a waste it would have been if I had missed it. What a breathe of fresh air. I totally love how messy, loud and chaotic the wedding scene was. It ended the way it started- everyone being a drama queen. Love the stormy sky backdrop with the whole wedding tableau. Plus I've spent basically the whole drama admiring Han Groo's fantastic legs.
Muscular and toned. And no stilettos in sight. Agajdkslldnsnahajjsjd this is def the best romcom of It sits as my second favorite forever and this drama totally deserves a number one spot if only i wasnt so fond of my fangirling busan high schooler.
I wanna thank all recappers and regular commenters i remember lessonlearn, chandler, harmonyfb, kim yoomi amongst some. You guys made it so fun watching it and i like that even tho there are differing opinions theres never a comment war here. DB jjang! This drama seriously made me wanna follow korean dramas again. Ive been watching since full house days but i got so bored lately because shows are trying to be cool and different but this show, using the very same trope that got me hooked ten years ago, managed to end refreshingly.
Its weird how i dont feel the need to protest about otp getting together too long. I feel like they were just learning to see each other better with one wall falling after another as time passes. I even appreciate that it took them forever to acknowledge their feelings despite gitae actually falling for jangmi in like ep4.
Its a very mature thing to portray that a relationship takes so long to happen. All in all, i now have an ideal relationship type thanks to this drama. I actually made lunch for my mother after gitae phone scene in ep. In ep Thanks MND. Youre just a drama but a ride with you makes me appreciate my life better and makes me want to be a nice person because jjm proves that being kind trumps all. Thank you for your recap of one of my favorite shows of the summer.
My daughter asked me what show to watch. I told her Marriage Not Dating because it's not your usual boy meets girl plot. Also, I told her that Han Groo looks like my cousin when she was young so she said she would definitely check it out.
Anyway, sad to see it come to an end. I enjoyed the beginning parts, middle dragged on with the secondary characters I didn't care about, but ending was quite different and refreshing.
I'm especially glad that Ki Tae's mom finally had enough of Mr. Jerkface and asked for a divorce, the house, and told him to hit the road! I'm also liked it when the Grandma and Aunt commiserated with Ki Tae's mom and not the dad because they knew how much hurt and suffering she endured over the years. They made the"Perfect Couple" for this funny, sometimes crazy and silly hi jinks of their two absolutely crazy families.
What fun it was to watch this pair! I am still battling the tears as this show has come to an end and also the family relationships it has explored and unraveled. Most touching moment - ki-tae mom accepting in laws and friends and wanting to continue living with them. I am very very very sad and I am now having withdrawals that this show has ended.
I have watched eps 16 more than 5x already and has not gotten over it yet! Anyway, congratulations to all the people behind this great show. I am now an instant fan of YWJ and HG, been watching all their previous projects Hope to see them again in their future projects as awesome as this.! One thing that hits me on this series is to appreciate all my loved ones for all their kinkiness, messiness and all their disorders since I for one is one I loved this show so much, love all the relationships, friendships, mother-son, mother-daughter, mother in law-daugther in law I just loved the scene of KT and his mom on the phone So loved the cuteness and sweetness overload of our OTP and that passionate kiss at the end, that nailed it so beautifully!
Ki Tae's mom started out as "that" Kdrama mom and turned into my hero. That, my friends, is what you call character development, and as usual Kim Hae Sook is fabulous!! It's finally over. Nevertheless, this will be one of my favorites of all time. There are just those dramas that you'd love to watch again and again.
I'm sure I'd keep watching and rewinding my favorite scenes. Jang Mi is the epitome of flawed but gorgeous. The ending was perfect and symbolic. Love and Marriage is not about the absence of rain but about holding and loving each other amidst the storm.
YWJ and HG were perfect for their characters. I hope I see them again in a drama I have had loads of fun and laughter watching this and didn't want it to end. What a fun and light-hearted series with a great ending.
I'm just so happy that this show remained true to itself until the end. And that they weren't afraid to show the OTP kissing and touching like any normal couple thanks cable! Other dramas should follow the example: spend 2 episodes wrapping up everything nicely instead of rushing your ending in just 5 to 10 minutes. I think that in part, Marriage Not Dating was so enjoyable because the lead actors were easy to relate to, not just because of their flaws, but also because they looked like normal people.
Yeon Woo Jin, though adorable, doesn't have the abs of an idol or male model, and Han Groo is cute in a very natural way. Yaaay episode 16 is out!
But noooo the drama is over! I really really liked Marriage Not Dating, in fact, I would consider this one of my favorite dramas ever. I can't pinpoint exactly what it is that makes MND memorable for me. I think it has something to do with how honest and realistic the story is and how relatable the characters are and the situations that they go through.
Of course, it is largely due to how good the main leads are in portraying their roles. She makes the funniest, most ridiculous facial expressions and it's greatly part of the reason why Joo Jang Mi is such a flawed yet completely lovable character.
I would say I personally don't find her to be typically pretty but she has something about her that makes her quite attractive. She also has really nice toned legs, LOL. I will be sure to watch out for her future projects because this girl can act. I was surprised to learn that she's a er. She comes off as more mature than her real age. Actually, all the 3 female leads here appeared much more mature than their real ages, which isn't a bad thing.
Thank God I did, though, because I never would have discovered how good these two are. I loooved the cat meowing sound effects everytime Gi Tae and Jang Mi are about to do you-know-what stuff. And of course, no one can play a K-drama mom better than Kim Hae Sook. I really liked mom's scenes in this last episode especially when she finally let go of that perfect-wife exterior and finally eased up.
