- Marriage Not Dating: Episode 16 (Final) » Dramabeans Korean drama recaps
Ki-tae diminta untuk cepat menikah karena memang ia sudah layak untuk segera memiliki pendamping hidup. Oleh karena itu Ki-tae sengaja membawa Jang-mi Han Groo ke rumahnya untuk bertemu orangtuanya dan menyamar sebagai pacarnya. Ki-tae yakin bahwa mereka tidak akan pernah menyetujuinya berhubungan dengan Jang-mi. Lalu bagaimanakah kisah selengkapnya? But the best thing about this entire show has always been the focus on family. None of us live in a vacuum and, good or bad, our families shape and define who we are. Jang-mi and Ki-tae were dysfunctional because their families were dysfunctional — but rather than fighting the future in-laws for control like so many drama characters, they actually drew those families in and worked on healing them.
But they learned how to love and accept one another in spite of that, and maybe even because of that. The best dramas are ones that not only make you laugh and root for the characters, but make you feel something special, and I think I can confidently say that this show did that and did it well. It is in some ways the least romantic and most realistic of depictions since we have characters who run the gamut from happily wed, happily divorced, to some whose marriages resemble war buddies who are in it till the end because no one else would know their pain.
This series is a standout among rom-coms for its fresh take on contemporary romance, its flawed characters who were allowed to remain flawed, and the lovely sense of humor that the writer and director shared—there was a cohesion in the writing and directing that was palpable, in that we were made to feel all of the right beats in all the right ways, which is actually rare.
I loved the setup, but it started to drive me nuts the way we felt trapped there. The series was at its best early on, when the humor crackled and the couple was forced to act loving on the surface while antagonism brewed underneath. But once they started using it to misrepresent scenes altogether with footage that was a direct lie, it stopped being clever and felt manipulative; they lost meaning when I could only start counting them as fantasy sequences. At least the finale went out on the kind of cold open I had loved early on.
Marriage Not Dating was a relative success for tvN it reached a high of 4. I love watching actors grow role by role, and these two had such a fantastically timed growth spurt in the same drama opposite one another. It underscored that the secondary loveline in the drama—between Jang-mi and her future mother-in-law—was something that changed Mom as a daughter-in-law as well.
I loved that the familial thread ran through the show from beginning to end, and that despite the romance being the hook, family is what we end on. Your email address will not be published. I will miss this drama a lot. Can't believe it's over.. Watch her in 'Warm Words'.. She's the only reason i keep watching the show. While I found the show entertaining. I didn't actually like a single one of the characters, and especially Gong Gi Tae. In that last episode his attempts to cheer her up or whatever it was he was doing when trying to force to her to eat and joke around with him and talk about marriage when she's trying to find her father to tell him her mother has cancer were appalling!
And that thing with the letter - what gives him the right to open her mother's private letter, read the contents, steal it, and then refuse to let her daughter see it? I would have ripped him a new one right there. I will say the product placement for the LG portable photo printer in the last episode totally got me.
I immediately looked it up and may still buy it I bought LG G3 after watching this drama when I saw the printer.. If I found out my mother had cancer, I'd love to have Gong Ki-tae there doing all those things for me: I mean, making sure I eat, holding my hand, and then staying with my father and comforting him all night?
I couldn't ask for anything more. Mostly because all that those things really show is that he's trying, that he's worried for me and that in itself is something lovely even if he doesn't know exactly how to convey it perfectly. Although, I personally think him going out of his way to mend the relationship between Jang-mi's parents is a pretty wonderful way to convey how much he cares for them, but that's just me: The fact that he did all those things is just his way of showing love and concern to the ones he care for.
It may not be super romantic, but that just makes him, him. Thank you DB for the recaps. I appreciated it so much. This one of the less-buzzed drama when it began but ended with a bang. I have to agree that the second leads with the exception of Hoon Dong, he's such dork didn't contribute as much as to the awesomeness of this series but the families made up for them esp GT's mom.
Yay, the three women being together forget dad, girl power FTW. And don't make me start with the wedding. If it ended with a simple wedding, it's not MND. The kiss at the end perfectly wraps up their story and now that's a kiss. I agree that the big weakness in this show were the second leads, Se Ah and YR. Neither one of these characters were written particularly well - their motives were fuzzy, and they hanged allegiances and directions without notice or reason.
But the acting was also very poor - both characters were played by idols, with little acting experience, and it showed. Both of them were more concerned with looking good than showing some real emotion, and neither of them were able to give any unspoken clues about their character.
I got so sick of their plastic, enigmatic smiles. I understood the rest of the characters, I felt like they were real people, and then there was Ken and Barbie. Thanks for the recaps guys! I still have to catch up on the drama, but I did read all the recaps. I can say I am pretty much satisfied with the ending: D Gi Tae and Jang Mi made one awesome pair!
This drama was very fresh and funny.
This adds onto my list of most fave dramas. Gonna watch out for the leads from now on, they were fun to watch. Was consistent from start to finish. Watching this became a bonding time with my wife who kept on nagging me to check whether the latest episode was already out. This was also a great consolation after being disappointed so much with Doctor Stranger not that they have any relation. Good directing, writing, and most of all, good actors. This drama did not have any pretensions at being life-like, or having any deep meaning.
It never attempted to moralize or to stylize the scenes again, unlike Doctor Stranger. It was just plain heartwarming, and hilarious and insightful towards the end. Congratulations to all the production staff and the cast. Will look forward to another drama by the same actors. Incidentally, am not Korean. But I am beginning to love Korean culture and actors. Have watched tons of Korean dramas. Thank you as well to all who do the subs. Looking forward to visit Korea with my wife one day. MND was a good drama. I started off loving it but midway it lost its addictiveness to me and it wasn't as funny as it used to be.
They took too long to have the OTP start dating and the angst and the two leads going around in circles aggravated me to no end. In spite of all of this I still liked this drama and when the leads did get together they were magic on screen. They have such wonderful chemistry, I hope they are able to reunite in another drama or movie someday.
The ending left me wanting more, idk I just didn't like the ending that much even though that kiss was amazing. They kept mentioning a plot twist so much that I thought it was going to be something epic, but all it was was whats her name getting knocked up by that one doctor guy. That was a let down. However, I loved that Gi Tae's mom found her happiness in the end. Her husband's family screwed her up so badly that it's understandable why she acts the way she does.
Overall I enjoyed this drama even if some of my love for it at the beginning wore off towards the end. It's still one of the best rom-coms of for me and I will put it on my repeat list for rainy days. Even though I love this show which has ne comparing it to coffee prince.. I understand girlfriend take on the cold scene in the beginning.. With everything else showing now.. I can't even get through half the episodes without folding it in but I have been waiting and even watching without subs since I was so anxious for this show..
Probably the best thing for this ending was that not everyone got redeems in some unreasonable way.. Thank you Lollypip and girlfriday for the great and heartfelt recaps. Love this series so much but wished we had more time to just savor the OST relationship for a little longer. As well as seeing Ki-tae's dad suffer a whole lot more. And by the way, what with Jang-Mi's mom, yikes!! What a whiny self centered woman! I really loved the OTP, but the scene that by far made me grin the most was the one where the 3 women collectively kicked dad to the curb.
I didn't think he had it in him.
Thank you guys so much for the great recaps and insight you've provided and to all the commenters who left such great comments about the show as well. You two said what I wanted to say and more so much better than I ever could have, especially your last lign here, girlfriday, ha. I'm going to miss this show so much, especially the lead couple. They had so many adorable, sweet, wonderful and heartfelt moments in the last few episodes and it was a joy to witness them grow as people and as a couple.
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.
List Update Sinopsis Drama On Going
Ki-tae and Jang-mi are so good and so cute together, and I only can agree, the family aspect 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. 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. 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..
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. 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. Thanks TVN for giving us a realistic relationship of 30 somethings in which people really kiss, sleep together and have romantic moments in a bathtub!
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 He's such a wimp spoiled brat.
Still hated what he did to Jang Mi. I didn't have any real expectations for this show when it first came out, but it completely blindsided me! It's turning out so much better than I could have anticipated: I'm afraid I don't understand why HD has to marry that gold-digger, when she raped him n got herself pregnant. Even in countries where abortions r illegal, rape pregnancies are exceptions. She obviously didn't know or care anything about him other than that he was JM's RICH BF, and as she admits to him, she is a plotter and schemer, to get them where they are.
He ran away from JM calling her a stalker, after they dated for 3? Now he walks down the aisle w this girl, who he hasn't been in love with. That's a plot pt that I don't quite get. She is too embarrassed to continue to date him. So she ignores or covers up her strong feelings for him and turns her back. I sort of understand at a cerebral level what they r saying, but don't entirely follow on an emotional one. JM's mom has been blaming her husband for a long time, for the life that she lives, which contains a lot of work at their resto w very little pay.
She's been grating her teeth about it in resentment for years. Now she wants a divorce, Becos JM points out that they haven't shared a breakfast or a dinner as a family for as long as she can remember. So mom wants to put a stop to her marriage which is a sham. It's a bit sudden, but there we have it. I guess there r 2 ice queens in this show: JM's mom and KT's mom.
Viki marriage not dating ep 13
Unhappy marriages can do that to a woman. Wonder if JM's GF will turn into sb like that in time. But then she'll have her dependent credit cards to comfort and console her. Hyun Hee did not rape him and get herself pregnant. It was obvious that she never intented to get pregnant, and also that she has acutal feelings for Hoon Dong. Hoon Dong was kicked out of his house, yet she still married him.
Thats not what gold diggers do. Also rape is a very sensitive topic, dont use it when its not appropriate. She deliberately gets a guy drunk, so drunk that he is flat out. She proceeds to undress him and have sea with him. To me that is rape. What would you call it if a guy gets a girl so drunk that she can't give consent, and then proceeds to have sex with her? Was he really 'flat out' at that point of time? Like he didn't really reciprocate at all? See, if that's the case, then I kinda have to take back a lot of things that I said in a post below.
I was under the impression that Hoon Dong knew what he was doing then. It is just something he deeply regrets or wishes hadn't happened. I did not really get a 'was forced to have sex' vibe from Hoon Dong's actions the next day and keeping with the light tone of the drama and the player attitude of Hoon DOng , I don't think the writers were going for that. But I actually see what you and a lot of others mean when you call it rape, but it is still a very sensitive word to be thrown out so casually.
Gosh, I am coming across as a troll for being so effing fixated on that word. Please don't hate me, beanies! I lub you all. You're not off base. I think whats nice about how his storyline developed was that he took ownership of his choices that night. If you're going to get that drunk you have to be prepared to live with consequences you'll regret. While I agree that rape is too strong a word, I doubt her feelings for Hoon-dong are anything sincere. Hyun-hee is exact opposite of Jang-mi, in that Jang-mi's feelings and action come from the heart, while Hyun-hee's from brain, making her feelings and action cold and calculated.
Yes, maybe she didn't expect to get pregnant.
But she didn't sleep with Hoon-dong because she sincerely love him either, or even just to have good time. She do it for her own gain. More like so she can have 'deeper connection' or some sort of hook, because it was clear that Hoon-dong didn't intend to go anywhere serious with her before that. When she actually got pregnant, she use it to the max. All her actions so far reeks of manipulation. While Hoon-dong was kicked out, at least he still have money and Hyun-hee still can depend on him to provide for her.
In the end, all she think of is herself, making her a really dislikeable character. And what's the problem with that? I mean, probably most of the kdramas leading men are selfish and we like them. A month if being pragnent.. Because they are leading men? We see things from their point of view most of the time, making us more likely to root for them. I don't see any for hyun hee so far. Also, leading men selfish tendency are more of "I only care about myself, don't want to have anything to do with others, don't care if I frankly show my selfishness either".
I will do things with others, as long as it serve my own gain". Like I said, manipulator. At least leading men are honest? The "rape" word is tossed around FAR too carelessly. And to equate what happened in the episode with real rape is totally over the top.
And it cheapens the trauma of real rape victims. If you want to see what REAL rape looks like, try spending a few weeks volunteer service at a battered women's shelter, where rape victims have broken bones, smashed faces, and damaged genitals. If u don't like the word rape.. 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? I just don't even know—. Rape is sexual intercourse without consent. 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. 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. 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: 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. 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. That said, I'm still so bummed that she didn't get to find out with his proposal because that would have just been such a surprise for her: 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.

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.https://bractocomroban.tk
Marriage not dating ep 13 sub indo
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. 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 me , but 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 profiles , it'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. 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.
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. 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..
Marriage Not Dating: Episode 16 (Final) » Dramabeans Korean drama recaps
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. 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. 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.
