I think Ki-tae's mom is such a fantastic character in that she's so ridiculously human. Her expectations of Jang-mi is very justified and I love how betrayed she felt when she believed the blogger was Jang-mi's form of revenge. I really wish dramas would do this more often. The cookie-cutter MIA are so yesterday. This is what I'd watch any day of the week And finally Jang-mi and Ki-tae who are just getting more awesome per episode - like that's even possible. I love the way they dealt with the break up, and how Ki-tae ended up telling her so simply that he loves her.
The role reversals are fabulous and I'm really excited for the direction the last three episodes is taking. While Jang-mi is definitely hurt in love, I still believe she believes in happily ever afters and marriages, etc. But its going to take a leap of faith for her to pursue that again after everything she's been through.
Marriage not dating ep 13
But if there's one thing that can make her do it, it's love. Ki-tae will convince her like she did him. I love the feel of full circle and this drama does that so well. I wish they were extending this, because I feel so reluctant to say goodbye Also, completely agree with GF. Dramas need to get creative like that; it drives the point home without driving viewers nuts. I feel so much for this episode because of some real life shit that is going on in my own personal life.
Then typically, in dramaland or in real life, the typical response will be 'Everything is too complicated to explain and it will take egos to explain. This is simply an excuse to just leave that person as it is without any explanation for your actions.
Even if mum did something wrong in the past, like maybe neglecting dad too much, it is just wrong to betray her and have another woman OPENLY outside. That line ' I want a reason.

I feel her. Indeed, once dissapointed, you are afraid of venturing into a new relationship because you are afraid it wun meet your high expectations. I now have my own reservations towards treating people too sincerely in real life now after going thru shit. Hence, i am now more afraid than before that ki tae's mum will not believe in jung mi as much as before, especially when the trust is broken the day itself when she start to believe in jung mi.
Genuine sincerity will be felt; it's not the lip service or the surface packaging gestures meant to 'show' you something. Finally, all the push-and-pull crap is over! I mean, there are only so many times Jang-mi could reject Ki-tae, so thank goodness for the last half of this episode. I was initially confused at the end of this episode because I just assumed they would date, and it never occurred to me that Ki-tae would want to marry soon. I guess I totally missed that whole switching-roles thing even though I knew at some point their characters would go that way.
I was so frustrated with last week's episodes, I couldn't even comment on the last one. But now I'm just going to accept that people can have personality transplants in this drama. That's all a rom-com needs, a solid couple to root for.
Everything else no matter how infuriating they get is just extra noise. Aw, I loved this episode. I didn't really expect them to find their way to each other right away and I actually like how they both had to struggle through a few things before they were really ready to be together.
The issues are so realistic and this drama has done a wonderful job of making this relationship feel earned.
Haha well, Ki-tae really just needed to give her the necessary time and space she needed to focus on herself, if only for a little bit. I understand how, after falling for and trusting in someone for the first time in forever Ki-tae might be a little eager to just get married and be done with it.
That's why I'm going to love this new dynamic between them, where he's hot and she's cold. I think it was important for Jang-mi that she take some time to look after herself for once. But, I'm also glad that she realized that looking after yourself doesn't always have to require cutting the people you care about out of your life.
Sometimes it just means slowing things down :. Anyway those last 15 minutes were especially wonderful. Cleaning Nemo's tank together! And Ki-tae's faces were seriously priceless! Yay for hugs and kisses! Yay for divorce! Today's episode was so funny I bent over laughing. So much for innuendoes!
Poor Gi Tae, I've never seen a man undress so fast and the shower scenes were priceless! Glad to see that they could sit down and discuss "the act" like any healthy, normal couple. Kudos to this drama for treating sex as a normal part of a romantic relationship. One thing this show does right is that it shows how people can be amicable exes.
Aug 16, Marriage Not Dating: Episode 13 by girlfriday. The problem with filling your day with trying to forget the person you love is that you spend all day thinking about the person you love. It's an episode spent in denial, but in the cute way where everyone runs /5. Apr 13, Marriage Not Dating Bolum izle asyafanatikleri, Marriage Not Dating Bolum izle kore dizisi, Marriage Not Dating Bolum izle turkce altyaz?l?. Aug 16, ?? ?? ?? E13 - ??? ??? 2am ?? ??? ??? ??? ??? Secret Han Sunhwa Jinwoon Han Groo Yeon Woojin Yoon SoHee/Sohui Heo Jeongmin Gong Kitae.
I like how Jang mi is still pals with Yeo reum and Hoon Dong even though they are no longer dating. I liked how they all rallied round Gi tae to help him in his hour of need without even letting him know. Trust Jang mi to get to the heart of the problem by giving sympathy to the plastic surgery addict. While Se ah went in with a sledgehammer, Jang mi went in with sincere kind words and got better results.
It is true that you catch more flies with honey! I wonder how Gi tae's mom will feel when she finds out she was wrong about Jang mi, and why couldn't Jang mi stick up for herself and explain the situation? The misunderstanding felt so contrived! Anyway, I really can't blame Jang mi for ONLY wanting to date Gi Tae and not marry him - with her first hand exposure to the messes of both families and all she has been through, and the fact that Gi Tae's mom thinks the worst of her, it's no wonder she wants to keep things low ley between them.
What's the deal with Jang mi's mother? Is she just dissatisfied with life? Or does she just want to make her husband miserable? It's not his fault that they are not rich, the man works hard to provide for his family, he's no slouch. What more could she want? If she's so unhappy why is she dragging on their divorce instead of getting it settled amicably?
There were many things running through my mind during that confrontation scene: "This is NOT the ultra violent confrontation scene we started the episode with phew We've reached the 'lay our emotions out on the table and stop running' portion of the drama I' was so done with denial", and, yes, "Your purse! Your purse! You forgot your purse!!
In a public space! At night! Cell phone! Credit cards! That borderline domestic violence cold open was cringeworthy. I was hoping against hope the actual scene would not unfold that way. Dodged a bullet there. I was thinking the same and so cute to read it in the recap!
Hallelujah, they are finally together! His confession made my heart flutter. Since she accepted, obviously she likes him back, but I was wishing she had confessed her feelings to him in return.
Ki Tae has come a long way from wanting nothing more than to be alone to wanting nothing more than to date with the intention of marriage. I guess she doesn't want both of their families to get their hopes up again. Why did she make him shower if he's only going to be cleaning? You get all sweaty and dirty when you clean; he's going to need another shower afterwards.
Their back-and-forth banter looked natural. Do it.
I can't. Just do it. She really has given up on Ki Tae. And that's the Hyun Hee we saw in episode 2 who stood up for her friend against her cowardly boyfriend I may actually end up liking these people by the end of this drama.
Ki Tae's fake phone orders were my favorite scenes today. Ki Tae was eating chicken for days I like the double irony in Ki Tae bringing Hoon Dong chicken when there is chicken in his own restaurant and Yeo Reum asking Jang Mi to run his restaurant when she her family owns a restaurant. I was offended by the age discrimination against Jang Mi, but I understand Korea is a different country where people get plastic surgery to be able to take a good picture for their resume before even being considered for a job.
The writers miraculously redeemed Se-Ah - kind of, especially during the coffee scene. She was all like "Hey guys, thanks for your concern but don't worry about me now just go get that girl. I feel like such a cynic, but I don't buy those character turnarounds as "redemption. It seems like the writers want us to like those characters, but they've been such mirth-sucking black holes that I just feel indifferent to them and pretend they don't exist.
Yea I too feel it to be weird. Yeo-rum being cupid? Did I watch wrong drama?
And if they manage to bring our OTP to right place, who am I to get mad. Btw Mom sure have worst timing ever around Jang-mi, eh? Coincidentaly met the mistress not once but twice, caught Jang-mi supposedly red handed, again not once but twice. Thanks girlfriday for the super awesome fast recap! You saved me from haunting your site all week-end.
I guess the writer needed to create some conflict for the remaining episodes. No matter, this show is great. True, Ki Tae is still rich, but his practice is in danger of going out of business. The focus was never on how poor Jang Mi was because Jang Mi's not poor, she's just working class.
The focus is more on Jang Mi finding herself. Ki Tae offering to pay her in today's episode was so insulting, which I found to be out of character because he never bragged about his wealth before. Which reminds me, who do you think is Yeo Reum's backer for his restaurant?
KIM NA YOUNG - ??? ??? ENG SUB + HANGUL + ROM MARRIAGE NOT DATING MV
Do you think it's Ki Tae? But Ki-tae wasn't bragging about his wealth.
He was honestly clueless about how to fix things with Jang-mi's life, and money was the first thing he thought of. Stupid move, but not terribly out of character. And Ki-tae is getting flack for using money as compensation, but Jang-mi did the same thing to Yeo-reum.
She felt bad about all the things she'd done to him the truffles, losing his job, breaking his heart I don't see that much of a difference between her gesture and Ki-tae's because he basically did put her in her situation.
You guys tapioca pearl and mo0mi make a good point. Then I'll buy all your chicken for you. Like Jang Mi said the Ki-tae she knows always chooses the most hurtful thing to say at all times. I am so happy with the direction the writer is taking. No more nonsense noble idiocy circling or missing each other except the wedding, com' on! KT's confession was true to his character, you could still see how difficult for him trying to say "I want to be with you" and "I love you" but he did it and it was sincere.
JM's "cool dating" shows how much she's grown as an independent woman, and while I wasn't expecting that I wasn't totally surprised because it shows us not only her growth but also how both of their roles are reversed now.
Game on! YWJ must be real tired with filming because the amount of breakouts and heavy make up is so obvious. Still, KT is the cutest love sick puppy yet with wolfy desires!
I think this is the first time I have ever seen an episode where the writer actually explains to the audience why a successful guy has all this free time to stalk his loved one. We always see chaebols running around doing everything but work. I loved how he try calling jm and going to her work to locate her instead of jus not doing anything after the wedding scene.
Does anyone know what song was playing at the top of the hour when Jang-mi and Ki-tae were fighting? Sure, the second leads are annoying as hell in the previous episodes. I just don't get Hyun-yi at all. But other than that, I can't say enough praises about it. I absolutely love Ki-tae and Jang-mi's relationship, so much that I never want the show to end.
I could just watch them doing their usual, daily activities and never get bored. To top that, just throw in a lot of sexy taims, thanks. I mean, I know she's trying to help her friend but er hello, let the man eat his food okay.
All through the confession scene, I kept thinking, who's minding her purse? Very distracting couldn't concentrate on the kissing :P. My thoughts exactly. Doesn't make sense. That is something a woman would never do. I enjoyed this episode especially when KT was going to the naughty place in his mind. The fast strip and the shower scene with sound effects was hilarious. I'm glad KT mom finally woke up from her fake marriage and told her philandering husband about getting a divorce. He wanted to have cake and eat it too.
He should have been kick to the curb a long time ago and get a good divorce lawyer. Finally, KT blurts out his true feelings, but I wish he said it in a different way since it sounded harsh.

I love the reversal of attitudes, but it threw me regarding Jang Mi just wanting to date only. All this time, she has been wanting to get married. I don't think it will last that long because KT won't be able to suppress his naughty thoughts.
Thanks for recapping so fast. Can't wait to see KT's dad rejected by his mistress who has no interest in doing his laundry and making his meals! After all that useless, aggravating angst. It feels really nice that we can finally get back to the we all know and fell in love with.
Because I like Yoo-reum and Se-ah so much better when they aren't being clingy and manipulative. And I'll just have to chip i with girlfriday because Yoo'reum's one sided love towards hyung is sooo cute. Yeon Woo-jin, once again, reigns this episode. I bet that right after MND finishes he will get tons of romcoms offers, left and right. So will Han Groo, for that matter. Both, him in the latter episodes, her in the earlier episodes, tackled comedy with so much ease but not overdramatic that you can't help but to laugh off your seat everytime they do something bizarre or out of place.
Yeon Woo-jin's faces are definitely something to be praised of. He's not that handsome, IMHO. There are tons of Korean actors with faces many times more handsome and statuesque than his. But funnier and more charming?
I don't think so. I especially like his shy slash surprised smirk, I notice he does that a lot, like when he's in the fortune teller scene and here again when Jang-mi was telling him to go take a bath. I know you guys know which face I'm talking about because he is just so goddamn cute. Oh, I think YR was being manipulative. That character seriously gives me the heebie-jeebies, she is so creepy. This drama is so utterly satisfying from a writer's perspective.
There was such a clever flip of characterization here and you saw how absolutely honest it felt because the writer s have been diligently laying the groundwork for this in a believable fashion. When I compare this to something like Trot Lovers, another rom com with cute characters that started out silly and cute, and see where we end up on two completely different levels This episode nail it for me. Finally yr has become the 2nd lead I been wanting. An open ear for jm to complain to while knowing noting will ever happen.
Hoon is still the crack up he always will be but man I feel sorry for him. The mom still bother me tremendously in this one. If he stays by her side then she will never divorce him. Kt and jm were so cute this episode. The kiss. Ohh we need more. The best scene to me was kt realizing that jm would never try to purposely hurt him. I was kinda nervous since we all know jm would jus enter his house without ringing the door bell even though kt keeps thinking she would so I was so surprise when he called her out for wanting to help him when she thought kt thought the same thing as his mom.
I totally thought Jang Mi's idea of helping Ki Tae was to go online and leave nice comments under aliases and defend him to the bad commenters all "He's a great doctor who really cares about his patients!
Highly recommended! Is it just me? Or does anyone else notice that during the scene when Jang Mi swatting flies, she looks like a cute tennis player holding a tennis racket.
It's safer in Korea. Probably only manwon. Gi Tae flashes around ohmanwon in his wallet. Ha, about the purse! My friend left her phone in the subway when we were traveling in korea, an ajumma actually went off the train to give it back to her.
Maybe income gap is nonexistent in korea lol. This is off topic, but your comment reminds me of when Yoon Doo Joon from Let's Eat, Iris 2, Beast had lamented about leaving his MP3 player on a bench in the subway station. He realized it after he boarded the subway as the glass doors were closing.
He got off at the next station and went back to the bench, but it was already gone. Reality is the huge disparity between the homeless living permanently in subway stations in their stowed away sleeping bags Seoul Station subway was memorable - there were even bonfires outside to cook their raw food in cans I think I'm the only one amused by Gi Tae's shirt during the confession scene.
Anyone read it? It says, "Lies" and "More lies" in a cross shape. I liked she smacked some boundaries on him and got upset about trying to secretly fund him, but then he threw back at her she was doing the same thing to him. The character reversal is nice and a bit true to life. Often when your foundation gets shaked you swing too far in the other direction.
Their version of that is not the exact same as the other person's version, which is a nice little bit. I'm guilty of watching the episode 4 times and then about more times on the park to apartment parts of the episode, mostly to study it. The acting was so good, and there were subtle parts I really liked, such as him wiping his hand before trying to grab her hand, and then when failing, wiping it again. How he wiped his face and then paused, then doubled down anyway, paused for permission before the kiss, the way she grabbed his waist as a form of consent The under dialogue even in the silence was well done.
Which is why I watched it about 4 more times. Plus the under dialogue of what she was thinking was also well mapped so that the noble idiocy didn't feel so idiotic. She had good reasons to stay away, but she couldn't bring herself to put herself in that mess again. Yeah, I get this is a bit more on the technical side, but it's because the emotional side was so well mapped, I wanted to see how they did it. Im on mobile data but ive rewatched the park to apartment part for three times now!!!
Aggressive nods to everything you said. I lo o o o o ve their unspoken dialogs. What i really love about gitae is despite his seemingly rude behaviors he always respects jangmi's boundaries.
He "asked" for consent. Not the usual forces kiss that kdramaland usually offers where the girl looks more pained than loved. Ggah im crazy for a guy who hugs before a kiss and gong gi tae did just that. I have so much respect for both leads in this show. I went into the show not knowing who they are but now i keep admiring their acting skills.
Its as if they put everything into the characters theyre playing. Like not once were they afraid to make facial expressions that might make them look less attractive. And that just earns so many respect points from my pov.
You know the director and writer trusts the actors when they use large silences in between. There were at least 3 lean ins from different distances, 2 over the shoulders, yet it was cut together beautifully. That's at least 5 kisses and it was well mapped. The acting was so good on him and her, and it's clear her confidence in herself to some degree has gone up, even if she says it wavers in front of him, she's still the one that proposed the cool relationship, meaning she's learning to be more selfish and ask for things she wants.
A few times what she said and what he said contradicted their physical actions, which is just good acting overall But they both got it So satisfying. I want to put together a scene half so well. I totally thought of how strangely appropriate his 'Lies and More lies' shirt was. I noticed his shirt, too. I was like, "Whelp, looks like the coordi's trying to make a statement. And I have to say that the sound effects are very well placed in this drama.
Even the simple scene became funny because of the sound effects. My only annoyance with this show is how inconsistent the second leads are. Like, after yeoreum deliberately hug jangmi knowing gitaes mom is watching, were now given such a sweetheart version of yeoreum that wants to work with jangmi with no other motives.
Do i trust that? I mean he didnt seem like hes ready to let her go just an episode ago. I would love for them to make peace with one another just not this fast. I would prefer to have hyeon hee being jangmis comfort during her lowest point. The female friendship was something i loved during the first 2 eps of this drama but hyeonhee seemed to have less of an influence this time.
I get that she still has her parts in jangmi gitae relationship but i really wanna see a girl to girl talk more. Hey, I like YR, and even I know there's ulterior motive.
Marriage Not Dating Episode 1 | Dramacool
And it's a smart plan - if proximity to KT prompted feelings, perhaps proximity to YR will shift those feelings back. Plus, he knows she'd be good for front-of-house, so win-win. I do feel a bit the same, worse, I think it is even 'outside' the drama scene I watched so many video clips And is nobody going to comment on Hoon-dong hilarious little dance? I died laughing when I saw him showing his new look to Gi Tae. What a great actor, he acts with his whole body, hahahaha! Srsly that guy's so funny, I won't mind the absence of his six pack.
And the cleaning scene was literally the cutest scene in kdramaland ever. Though we get frustrating scenes sometimes, there are still little ones we cannot help but to laugh at. Seems I'm not the only one here who notice and accept the lead male imperfections. Since I love this drama, I try to observe every small thing I can possibly find. Not to be harsh, look at Ki Tae's small scar near his right eyebrow or his asymmetric eyelids. But, those what makes him having human-like character, what makes him alive in this drama.
What being positive is that at the same time, I can see my own physical imperfections as somewhat cute. They just make us different, as we are Since, we-each of us, individually-are limited editions in this world I had a friend once who commented on the movie "The Full Monty" by saying that ordinary men generally have no idea how sexy they really are.
But, those what make him having human-like character, what make him alive in this drama. I was just wondering about the part where KT called JM's new cellphone- wait a minute, how'd he get her new number? D's handphone: I think the same as well! I finished this episode, looked at my husband, and said "I can hear the dramabeans folks squealing from here.
All you lead couple lovers had a lot to squee about, this episode. And also little backhanded digs "noona", lol. So many dramas, I'm staring aghast at the screen, thinking, "Why in the name of all the gods would you chose that jerk?
And I can't decide if Jang Mi's mother has cancer, or if she's pregnant from the sleepover.
I hope it's the latter, because that would be maximum hilarity. I'm so glad that the funniness was back this episode - last week was difficult watching, so I'm pleased to be giggling again.
Hoon Dong was particularly hilarious. I never ever ever ever desperately waited for a drama online. This is the first time for me. Even from the first minutes in the first episode, I have fallen for this romcom.
I tried to tell my friends about this show, but it seemed they did not really like it-they adored more on something melodramatic, something I slightly hate about, and not a comedy. Also, dancing with him. Anyone else notice that her bra left on the couch was white but she was clearly wearing a black bra - you could see it under her white shirt I didn't notice the bra but I counted how many underwear and shorts there were and I kept seeing one too many pair.
Well, it wasn't Jang Mi's first nite at Gi Tae's. Can we assume that she had spare clothing stashed there? I would think the black bra was much series then the one on the couch. I love the resolution to last episode's cliffhanger. He didn't pout nor beg; just simply asked, "Whoever said anything about marriage? I thought the events would unfold with Ki Tae accepting Se Ah's job offer; then because his clinic closed down, Hoon Dong's restaurant would have no customers, so he would go work at the bar; then because Se Ah's hospital is close to the bar, they would all hang out there like Cheers.
I felt proud seeing him study because he finally stopped waiting around for Jang Mi while she played aloof. I cheered at his snide remark about her always being sleepy every time she is around him.
Is their bar 24 hours? Her constant falling asleep was so inconsiderate of his feelings. I could feel their awkward silences through my computer screen. Couples usually run out of things to talk about years into their relationship, but they just started dating. That is not a good sign. Thank goodness they were back to their Chatty Cathy selves after dropping the "cool" act. I don't see anything wrong with Mom catching them, other than the embarrassment for both parties.
But this is a good way for her to realize they are together and are serious with each other. Where in the world did Hyun Hee get the money to open a bar? Thanks for the recap, LollyPip!
I think her constant falling asleep was partly meant to show how comfortable she was around him. I don't really think she was that inconsiderate a little bit, yes because she obviously treasured the moments she got to sleep on his shoulder and even sited it as her reason for being able to work so hard. Also I don't think they necessarily ran out of things to say, but that they simply had to make it through that awkward friends-to-lovers transition. When you think about it, they've never really gone through the "how do I impress this person" stage because they moved directly to the "I can be myself around this person" stage as soon as they met.
So now that they're dating, it's almost like they felt the need to go back to the stage they missed because now they care what the other person thinks. It actually shows how much they've come to respect each other. They just needed to mess up a bit first to see that the reason they wanted to be together in the first place was because they had a relationship in which they could be themselves. I like this one because it's essential in order to make a relationship works in the long run.
This is what makes their relationship extra special and meaningful. Even when she intends to appear good in front of him, she can't help but shamelessly fell asleep on their date. Granted she's just too tired working at the restaurant which is fine an excuse. Though I find it absurd and frustrating, I like it that she can do that comfortably around him. Oh, no - it's accurate. Opening your own business - especially a restaurant where you're running at full speed for hours at a time - is exhausting and stressful.
Until you've toughened up a bit, you're going to be doing nothing but working and sleeping. I think the stress of opening her own business and the fact that she was so comfortable with Gi Tae was why she kept falling asleep on him. As for her mom, frankly, I don't think she cares where Jang mi spends the night. Remember what Jang mi told Gi Tae, both parents were so busy working and spend their nights in seperate rooms so when she woke up she hardly ever saw her parents, they were like strangers living in the same house.
It was only when Gi Tae was with them, that they made an effort to appear as a family. She probably didn't even notice that Jang mi sleeps elsewhere. As for Jang mi, the atmosphere at home must be toxic, and she would probably like to avoid that as much as possible.
The thing is, she could have chosen napping during those times, but instead she chose going on dates with him. And what's a boyfriend for if not for lending a shoulder in time of need? I do understand her reasons for falling asleep and Ki Tae was more than sympathetic, but I still felt hurt on his behalf.
To compare, when students fall asleep in class, there are a number of reasons homework, studying, part-time jobs, partyingbut to the professor, they can't help feeling it is because their lecture is boring.
On the park bench, she fell asleep in the middle of his sentence, so niggling at the back of his mind would be he is not interesting enough to keep her awake. He didn't say "you're always sleepy whenever you see me" maliciously he said it in a nice tonebut I liked it because it showed he noticed and he was bothered by it.
The ost my han groo was such a pleasant surprise. From now on. Kdrama is changed forever. Coz that's what we want. Oh, and this particular mother-in-law is so human, I just want to hug her. I say do away with them all.
It seems like the writer is panicking that YR got lots of haters due to his jealous antics so the sudden transition is a way to win back our affection for him but not me because I never care about him anyway.
Also what's so wrong with second leads being evil all the way to the end? It's not like it never happens in real life. In real live normal people give up their unrequited loves pretty fast and move on - lots of other fish in the ocean. If they don't, it's called obsessive tendencies and they ether become addicts, seek a therapist or, unfortunately, buy a gun and show up at the ex's door.
All rolled into one with a complicated revenge plan. U can most likely check them on the mnd wiki page or Asianwiki. The show is killing it for the paid cable ratings but I think it still falls short to reply That 3. I can't count how many times I've replayed this episode. I love the honest conversation and all conversation Jang Mi-Gi tae had. They looked so real and it reflected how a normal couple looked like. How come Yeon Woo Jin's voice is so soothing every time he speak?
Love this show to pieces. HD and GT's interactions always kill me. HD had a douchy past but deep down he's just a kind hearted manchild. Their friendship is so endearing because both are honest to each other and understand each others weaknesses.
Everyone is finally on the hoon train with me. I like that even though he looks ridiculous he still plays out his roll. HD is the best comic relief in a kdrama in a long time. Seriously that actor and Yeon Woo Jim have the best reaction expressions! That coupled with the sound effects make this drama so fun to watch. Total WWE fan here. That "you can't see me" thing was a reference to John Cena, and I just love it when K-dramas make references to things I know and love here in the U.
That was a totally cute scene. If looks could kill - Han Yeo Reum would be dead!! Those side eyes he was getting from Mama Gong when she visited the restaurant were lethal.
She most definitely is NOT a fan! And neither am I! I thought he was a turd for all his interactions with my favourite couple - from him conceitedly informing Jang Mi that girls usually ask for him and not Ho Doong at the restaurant 1st episode up to wheedling a bunking arrangement with Jang Mi after being kicked out from the restaurant and everything else beyond.
He progressed into a low-down turd with that intentional hug in front of Gi Tae's mom, calculated to draw bad blood between Jang Mi and Mom without any benefit to anyone, himself included, with the fall out rippling through both families leaving heartaches everywhere. I assume this was product placement same as the billboard for Restylane that is crowding his desk. Ugh, PPLs.
They make me laugh. As do integral scenes in dramas where they force the actors to speak English. I thought the cleaning device was hilarious! She got a smooth skin from it, that's some considerate bf He was speaking mostly Korean in Potato Star.
But he was playing a foreigner so his character had an accent and would often mix words up. I'm getting a very Coffee Princey vibe from this show, especially these last few episodes.
They remind me of when Han-kyul and Eun-chan finally start dating and then the whole I want to be a woman worthy of you business came up. Also, the leads are so relaxed with one another it also feels like Coffee Prince. Oh yeah totally agree I also got coffee Prince vibes coz of how comfortable and relaxed the leads are together. Thank you for what you wrote about the second leads because I completely agree.
I don't applaud all the writer's choices for their characters, but I don't feel like they simply went from Bad to Good, especially Yeo-reum. The one bad thing he did the hug was his breaking point and an understandable one considering the fact that he had to watch the girl he was dating fall for someone else right in front of him. He felt bad about being petty in that moment and has since backed off. He's probably helping now because he feels bad about what he did. I agree about Se-ah too, while still thinking that her character should have been written waaaay differently.
I agree with your comments on Yeo-reum, not so much on Se-ah's. I think she has finally come to terms that she can't coerce Ki-tae away from Jang-mi but that doesn't mean to me that she's back to being a supportive friend. I'm not sure if she ever WAS a real "friend. Right now I see her actions as continuing to be manipulative and opportunistic, just not in the same blatant way. I think she's gone back to hanging back and wait for the first sign of trouble from Ki-tae's relationship to try to weasel her way in.
The easiest way to do that is to stay close and oh! How lucky for her! Ki-tae's clinic is doing poorly and it's already been established that her dad has wanted Ki-tae to work for him. I think she MIGHT have felt something resembling shame after she laid everything out to Ki-tae and he still rejected her but since she never truly seem to be remorseful of her spiral into insanity I guess that's the Catch, you can't be crazy if you recognize yourself to be crazy?
I don't buy that she's repented and just being a good friend now. As a person who really thought Se Ah was the craziest second lead female ever with the sperm thing, I agree with you. I actually liked what they did with her character because what makes me crazy about these types of second female leads is that they make them so crazy and desperate that I don't understand them.
Se Ah in beautiful, rich, successful, and smart. This is true for almost every second female lead like her. I have never understood how we are supposed to believe that women like them consistently fall a part forever when a man they love leaves them.
She did her bit and took a ride on the crazy train. Who doesn't after a break up? She makes her last stance and then she releases him. The two of them breaking up was not only good for Gi tae but robably good for her, too, in the long run. She has the potential not to be crazy, but she would have stayed that way if her tactics had worked.
She is a smart woman all the advice she gives to Gi tae is spot onso I am happy to not see another smart remember she is a doctor, too fall apart permanently. Now it is time for Gi tae's mom to get a divorce!
I think part of the crazy is not unrealistic for her. She realized she needed to back off, but she's been there for years.
And when you hang onto something and wait for it for years, letting go takes a little bit of crazy, not unlike. She waited and waited and then watched it all fall apart in just a matter of weeks.
Even the crazy sperm thing was part keeping a connection and hoping it turns into something more, and part keeping at least some parting gift of the person she loved. It's not like the leads who have just met someone and become inexplicably obsessed with making them theirs. I think those kinds of leads are mostly chalked up to women with such huge superiority complexes that losing to anyone they think is inferior is just impossible to let slide. Wow, I ended up with so many cut off sentences.
I meant "her not letting go so easily is not unlike the lead's parents. Each pair has been together so long that even though it's basically been over for years the death throes are still ugly. I found it quite realistic. It's just a the whites of her eyes and it brought a very natural felt to those scenes. I give her props cause I can't fake that I've really enjoyed Jang-mi and Ki-tae these past two episodes.
Up until this week I felt like the show hadn't given me enough reasons to root for this pairing except for the fact that I was "supposed to. Thank you! Finally I can enthusiastically root for these guys! Nothing is sexier than knowing your partner wants it as much as you! My only real complaint about the recap is you bunching Se-ah and Yeo-reum together as the confusing "Bad-guys turned Good-guys.
There was no reason to believe that except for dramaland's trustworthy ability to make important events happen coincidentally at the same time. Se-ah is just crazy times and she's honestly just a scary, scary crazy person - I think she's not become nice, I think she just still being manipulative and opportunistic to get close to Ki-tae.
Yeo-reum, on the other hand, has made a lot of mistakes but at the end of the day I've never doubted that he's always felt affection towards Jang-mi after getting to know her and the same regarding Ki-tae. He had a moment of selfishness in front Ki-tae's mom but I think that by now he's realized it's game over. The three of them became a little family while the two boys lived together so it makes sense he wants to take care of his family, even if it's not what he might want for himself.
Can you tell me guys how can I get over with this drama? It's ending next week and as much as I want to see a happy ending, I also don't want to let go my nemo couple yet. I'm practically obsessed that I stalk all blog sites where this is recapped, videos on yt, tweets abt it and forums.
Good thing there would be a tvN awards by the end of the year, I'm excited to have my feed of Jang Mi and Gi Tae again :. Yeo-reum gave up somewhere after Jang Mi smacked down boundaries on his butt. After the hug, they had that falling out. And to reverse expectations, the writer let the characters do their own thing. That included making Yeo Reum stand on his own two feet. That was her moment of change.
In another words, the writer chose self-respect for the secondary leads over hanging on indefinitely, which is what real people do. You can see that was the theme of the last few episodes, because at the top, it played it for drama, but when you got there, the change in music and acting They were not the same cuts you found that the scene was not so dramatic, and it was more about self-respect than it was about drama and conflict.
Preserving the veneer. The writer has been doing that a lot throughout the series, playing with the drama tropes and doing reversals. For example, JM says she doesn't want to be a Cinderella in this episode. KT is actually shown working and working hard No telescopes-and the writer has made a point of it that they met up after he works or on weekends-such as when JM had to make pancakes and he couldn't show up to rescue her as the drama trope called for.
Instead of the drama lovey-dovey scenes, you see JM sleeping on all of the dates. Even the last few previews have been playing with the expectation of the viewers to be to that stereotypical drama standard and then pulled a reversal by showing they had recut everything to be different.
Last episode they pulled a "Let's set up Big misunderstanding" and it turned on its head and became a confession. So, this time the secondary leads get self-respect, but it's admittedly a subtle hand the writer pulled. I also thought the first time I watched this episode. The fact she wasn't uptight over it, echoed the words she said later about leaning on him. Also, it was a reversal of a type as well, because you expect lovey dovey scenes now that they are together, but instead, she's falling asleep, which adds a bit of undercutting and realism.
The beginning scene seems to remind us that what seems to be the surface isn't the truth. So the secondary leads choosing self respect not only follows their character traits, Though sometimes the I gotcha in the series leaves me groaning a little.
It's one thing to reverse expectations, but then it's another to completely do something so unexpected that it makes the viewer wonder when and where the characters got personality transplants. I feel like that was what happened. I like the point you said about how Se-ah and Yeo-reum chose self-respect and -preservation. That makes a lot of sense and fits with their initial characterizations. The problem is that the transition between the two sides was lost.
One episode, Se-ah's a raging lunatic, the next she is back to being Ki-tae's best friend. One episode, Yeo-reum pulls a dick move, the next he and Jang-mi are co-owning a restaurant. It's fine if they are nice now, but for me, I would've just liked a scene where they realized they did wrong and apologized to the people they wronged.
Something as simple as that would've made all this cordiality in this episode that more believable. But because that didn't happen, I'm left to wonder why. The point about this episode is a cool relationship. And thats what make this drama so appealing, because they skip all the cliches and cheesy lines. In YeoRum case,Jang Mi has asked him, how to keep it cool, like nothing happened between them, YeoRum answered, actually he is not cool, he just act like one.
YeoRum likes JangMi. But, he admit that Gi Tae deserves Jang Mi better. As Se Ah, I think, her transition happened when Gi Tae force her to leave with him at the end of episode She realized that forcing the relationship will just make her become more pathetic. I still remember clearly what he did to JangMi. Exactly what I was trying to point out. Thank you. The line where she said she would become pathetic.
Good re-enforcing point on YR too. He was always a coward actually stated in the showbut it's clear that his model of women is not that stable. He chose someone like his mother who is far more assertive than Jang Mi ever was. He's kinda an M Japanese definition of one. It's just at the time you saw it, you thought it was because he was being a jerk and burning JM, but then over the course of the show, they pulled a few things that made it clear he's really a puppy in disguise.
The first was the reversal. When JM became more assertive, he liked that and was attracted to her more. The second is Hyeon Hee acting all soft and then turning around and acting much like his mother. It's clear on some level what he didn't have with JM was what he wanted-an assertive woman who chased after what she wanted. So this clearly showed the reason he ran away from JM was because he's a coward and he didn't want to tell her that he never really liked her that much because he hadn't discovered his type was a reflection of his mother, and he's a coward through and through.
But lit professors when they talk about Korean lit, seem to treasure and highlight that the most about Korean lit. Also the long separation Thanks for recap. Very sad coz this show is going to finish. My forever otp ever I'm sooo happy with this show Kitae and Jang Mi are so good for each. YWJ and HG did justice to their roles. Two more episodes left I'm so excited for that. I'm hoping there would be a grand proposal scene. I'm totally in love with the leads.
I couldn't care less about Se-ah and Yeo-reum though. But good god, Ki-tae and Jang-mi own me, through and through. I am just sooooo happy about all these developments. I adore the lead couple! Fist pumps!!! No truly bad gay is here. Both lend him money and help him when he was out in the street. SA finally realice that she cant do as she pleases with GT. Chef and exJM boss will be together as well No one's an evil doer, except for Gi Tae's dad. He has no excuse, none at all.
The biggest douche bag in my book at the moment That a wife is for family and sociaty. It's dead grong, but GT Mo allowed to happend, as long he mainteain appearences. In that sence both are guilty. To me the inexcusable thing was left a 5 years old girl alone by her parents. That almost caused JM dead. That doesn't have a place in Korean society today by a long, long shot. It's outdated by a long long time. In fact, the Korean government until recently had it so you could get jail time and even a fine on top in some cases for adultery.
And Koreans didn't go through the Victorian era The way of thinking in Confucian society did allow for concubines, in effect Which is how you got the middle classhowever, hiding mistresses, not taking care of the resulting children, etc was frowned on highly. Also hiding them from your wife is a double no-no. So on any level or from any era minus the protection bits that obviously had to happenhe's wayyyy out of line and if he was caught in Joseon, he'd probably be flogged seriously.
And somehow, for a fictional character, I think watching him get beaten for his indiscretions and cavalier attitude might just be satisfying to me. I think I would like the slow smile on GT's mom's face as she watched, but pretended to care given his messed up attitude towards her.
I've made no secret of my love for Yeo Reum. So much for his brilliant plan to win her back. But how cute were Jang Mi and Ki Tae in this episode?
Trying soooo hard to be laid back, and yet Also, 'let's keep our dating secret', but making sure all of their friends know - plus, let's publish it in a magazine.
I'm surprised Ki Tae didn't post a billboard. What I really loved, though, were the scenes where both of them realized that their parents could only serve as examples of what to avoid in marriage, and that they would have to deliberately choose to avoid falling into that trap.
Yay, adult choices!!! I'm another Yeo-reum fan right here! I was a bit disappointed with his moment of selfishness in front of Ki-tae's mom I didn't like that the first time he really actively fights for Jang-mi he does it in such a hurtful way, not only to Jang-mi but to Ki-tae and his mom. I've forgiven the character because his actions since have gone back to the cool, easy-going person I like so much and he seems remorseful enough to help the couple away from their stupidity.
My only complaint is that I wish they had left him with a suitable female character so that all the Yeo-reum fans out there can dream of him getting with her in the future and also finding his own happiness. After being such a good sport about Jang-mi and Ki-tae he deserves it!
I love how our OTP wanted the cool relationship which quickly turned into a cold relationship. Sometimes you have to learn the hard way how to truly go for each other. Can't Gi Tae's mom just divorce Gi Tae's dad on the grounds of adultery?
I don't understand why she's waiting for Gi Tae's dad to divorce her it's clear that he never will. Not too sure about Korea's laws, but here in the US, she's clearly within her rights to initiate divorce proceedings. It does state she can do it on adultery grounds, but I think given her standing, it would be better for her to save face by him agreeing to the divorce as well, because adultery needs to be proven, etc.
JM can help with that! Which means she has to prove he's been sleeping with the woman he's been seeing. It might also be the best interest of her as well, for financial reasons, since she does not control the funds. A mutual divorce agreement would ensure her some money over forcing it. Thanks for clarifying this. As for proof, that should be fairly easy, all she needs to do is hire a Private Investigator, I am sure there are some who specialize in these sort of things.
There should be other witnesses than Jang mi who have been aware of her husband's affair over the years. But isn't the wife entitled to alimony regardless of who initiates the proceedings? It's obvious that he's the breadwinner supporting her over the course of their marriage.
Even if he tries to hide his assets, she's at least entitled to some of his pay, I'm thinking. The link stated something like that she would have better financial support staying with her husband and ironically stated that the way divorces are set up is so men don't walk out on their wives easily given K-dramas, that's just funny.
As it stands, she is still just a housewife and would need additional support. I also think if he mutually agrees to it, then it's more likely he'd have to give her funds rather than she walks away with nothing, so it's less risk, better face saving, etc for her.
It's also in her character not want to publicly fight him, which is part of the reason he chose her as his wife from what he stated. Either way, I don't think the writer is going to leave us hanging on the conflict of the parents both pairs before the end of the show. Or I'd be shocked if they did, especially with how things have been rolling. It would be in keeping with the show to actually have a divorce, since most shows are about keeping together instead.
And I'm sure the writer will play it for all the funny they can muster. Especially last I looked the divorce rate in Korea is actually higher than the US's-so they might play with that too. Did anyone else notice that the closing scene for Ep 14 was the opening teaser for an earlier ep 7 or 8or at least one that closely resembled that tease?
I recall being disappointed when the teased scene didn't occur in the earlier episode. So satisfying how it occurred in the most recent one. Loved it. So refreshing.
Weird side rant: During a recent episode, folks were commenting on Jang Mi leaving her purse on a bench when she runs away from Gi Tae. I noticed that as well. Another one of those "Wait! What's with that? With the blogger, she drops the bike by the side of the street and gets in the car, and remarkably, the bike is outside the chicken shop. I wonder, upon re-viewing this series if she does that enough to make a drinking game out of it?
I was wondering if anyone catched on that the scene with the feet was from the cold opening in an episode prior. I practically squealed when I recognized it! I'm glad that the writers are making sure to properly tie in their cold openings. Although there is another cold opening that I'm kinda disappointed about.
It was the one with Ki Tae's proposal, in the opening it showed that the lady entering wore heels, but when the actual scene happened the lady which we know to be Se Ah wore slippers. Anyhoo, I'm just being nitpicky, although that small bit of incontinuity kinda bothers me. Yet, maybe we're going to see some rule breaking in the next two episodes, or that was a product placement for fancy heels.
Se Ah did wear shoes. She would have taken it off at the door and changed into house slippers. I believe that's the Korean custom, as in many other Asian cultures: off with the shoes outside or at the door and into the house bare-footed or in stockinged feet or in this case, in house slippers.
Remember the pair of red heels Jang Mi spotted just after the door when she crashed the magazine interview towards the end of this episode?
It's not a continuity hiccup. I'll need to rewatch ep I don't think Se Ah wore those same shoes as featured in the opening teaser. She definitely took them off at the door and wore slippers. In the teaser, the person wears the shoes inside, and along the proposal walkway is that even a thing? I have been saying this so many times since I get myself sucked into this drama and joined this blog chat :. I just find it the reason to re-watch the relevant episode!
I was excited too just that from what I could see from that cold openings is that as if the two of them were wrestling on the bed out of their clothes. But Jang-mi was spotted with striped shirt and Ki-tae tring to unbuckled his belt wearing long trousers whereas in ep 14, towards the end, Ki-tae only wore shorts and Jang-mi wore the white blouse that was left on the back of the sofa with the bra! I was hoping that could mean why Jang-mi was wearing the striped shirt the same in the cold opening but the one she was caught by KT's mom, yes, she wore striped shirt but at the round-neck collar looks as if there's red stripe.
On a few occasions, and among the ones that I could remember After hitting Hoon-dong when she discovered Hyun-hee fell for Hoon-dong 2. When Ki-tae called, she's from work, stopped by Yeo-rum, and after being hugged by YR and busted by KT's mom, she just arrived at her parent's fried chicken shop 3.
After KT sabotaged her picnic date then she was swooped by KT's mom to the wedding dress shop 4. She managed to catch up with the blogger coz the blogger got to stop at the zebra crossing and JM just abandoned her bike there?
They really bring the characters so close to home, it's just great and I love the writing. Overall, nothing gets dragged on for whatever reason. Lol i love that last bit, that will teach his mother to not just enter her grown son's house so early unannounced.
I think JYM 's parent still love each otherdad can't take of his wedding ring? It's his petty way of saying he misses her. Even though they had not shared a room in ages? I Think they too need to let go of their "cool relationship" and admit there is still a blazing fire going on there. But her son explicitly told her he wasn't dating anyone. And he's still self-centered enough to keep his passcode the same His birthday And now it's come to this What frustrates me this ep is that even after that talk with dad gitae has yet to call mom and apologize to her.
As much as i adore him with jangmi i'd hate to have a son like that. His mom cares for him even though he doesnt see it. I hope we get to see him apologize not just reconcile to his mom. As an actor, I think he's really great at becoming his character. Even in his previous work where he played the second lead WAMLhe was still somehow more interesting than the main lead. Like someone mentioned before, I too wasn't attracted to him but he is so growing on me.
It's his eyes, he's got them crazy eyes that can do everything! I enjoyed this episode but what I'm really looking forward is some cute 'n sexxxy time with our leads as a real couple! I am not ready for this to end, at all! I've been too spoiled with this drama to let it go like that! I'm glad that they showed the potential conflicts and imperfect components of dating, whereas usually from dramas after two characters get together all we see his hugging cutesy moments which believe me I love but how long do those things really last?
I love how we get a little perspective into the strength and development of their relationship, so I feel somewhat more secure that their relationship will last.

Marriage, Not Dating Ep. 13 ?????? ????????HD ??????????????? ??????????? ???????????? ???????????????HD ??????????HD ???????????HD ??????????. Aug 18, Marriage Not Dating: Episode 14 by LollyPip. It's an episode full of frustration for poor Ki-tae, both emotionally and physically, as he learns about life as the boyfriend of a successful entrepreneur. He and Jang-mi both learn a little about how important it is to communicate honestly, and I can only say thank goodness, it's about time/5.
Also, I'm a little confused about GT's parents' situation. I don't understand why they are "hanging on"? Is this just to save face? I've loved you. Really, really loved you. Like, I wanted to watch you again and again forever. But then you go and do THAT for the last two episodes. It's one thing to create your world and say what you stand for. But it's another to use visual messaging to take pot shots that are designed to insult, provoke and divide.
It's called hate speech. It's small minded. It's petty. And it's beneath you, show. Please stop. I want to keep loving you to bits; but you've made it really, really hard to do. I'm actually genuinely curious of what you're referring to Like I seriously have no idea what you're referring to here:.
Oh dear, I actually feel relieved that the show is ending this week. It has stirred up my last few weeks and totally crashed my schedule. Instead of doing assignment, I stayed up very late to rewatch and rewatch episode after episode.
I have grown really crazy about this drama!!! I'm going to willfully ignore the fact that this episode is the beginning of the end. Just finished watching the unsubbed version of Seriouslyshowrunners, how can you? Answer: You can't, there's too much.
I vote for at least one more week's worth.
Also, I called the fake-out opening, but it was still satisfying. Now to wait for the subs so I can see how closely I was able to follow the dialogue while only recognizing one word in I am just about to start Joseon Gunman After a few chapters stretching the drama get to where I wanted to get!
While I was in this episode just a little disappointed, and grateful at the same time. Because it was not one of those episodes that make my heart beat, yet was so nice to see. I loved how they overcame their lack of communication! I want this to be an "I need romance", I expected a scene like the introduction Episode 6.
Not even a kiss occurred! I am even more angry about that.
Anyway, I love this drama! Maybe because this is not a drama of "ohh, how nice" if not of laugh at yourself. I think it was something that was known: When Gi-Tae was not the one who picked up the shoe Jang-Mi in the pool. Still, I expected a better bed scene. I hope I'm not being superficial. In fact the scene of the conversation on the sofa was very tender. But I expected more!
I did that to soooooo many other dramas, I rarely, very very very rarely would try to watch any drama when it started from day 1, though I did try one or two when it started, but it fades off very quickly and I can resist the temptation to follow ad wait longing for the next episode, week after week.
I didn't know why and what prompted me to watch this drama and since then I was hooked like crazy and in between Sat and the next Friday, I was searching and surfing for any previews, blogs etc on this drama. Now that I'm typing these down, oh my I do sound insane.
