[eng] ??? ??? Sunhwa cut Marriage Not Dating ep 4 (Hangroo Jinwoon Woojin)

Watch ' Marriage, Not Dating ' with our fast and smooth mobile player, optimized for your phone and tablet. How do you get your meddlesome family off your back? Gi Tae is a confirmed bachelor who has no interest in getting married, but he faces tremendous pressure from his family to settle down. To get them off his back, Gi Tae brings Joo Jang Mi Han Groo and introduces her as his future wife, knowing full well that his family would never accept her. Jang Mi agrees to the fake relationship because she is starting to lose hope that she will be able to find the perfect love after her failed past relationships.

The one brewing in her intestines? Ack, her steps grow more frantic as her stomach growls with terrifying urgency, and she goes every which way looking for a bathroom. She gets as far as across the street and then lightning strikes. She just pooped her pants. LOL, this is the opening scene? How can something be so sad and so funny at the same time? She screams for him not to say a word.

Se-ah comes out and asks if this was the sort of thing Ki-tae was angling for, calling him childish. Something that exploded without your consent or will? When Ki-tae comes in Jang-mi tells him that she wants to call it quits now, and says that she confessed her feelings to Yeo-reum. But she finds Jang-mi so personable and was pleasantly surprised to know that Mom could be so open-minded and forgiving.

Hoon-dong gets drunk and calls Hyun-hee out to meet him, slurring that he thought he could tell her everything. At the same time, Jang-mi tells Ki-tae that she thinks Yeo-reum is someone she can tell everything to.

Are you going to tell him that too? She chases after him in protest when he threatens to tell, but they stop when they spot Se-ah and Yeo-reum outside the restaurant. She says that she finally knows what Ki-tae is up to now and hands over an envelope, and Yeo-reum smiles back at her. Oh no, poor Jang-mi. This was the best use of the cold open yet, with the four previous episodes having set us up for a very straight reading of events, laying the groundwork for the surprise twist in this episode.

But this episode builds toward the reveal so effectively, complete with signs of an actual storm brewing as we go along, only to be slammed with the most unexpected reason for a tear-filled love spat imaginable.

Marriage, Not Dating (Korean: ?? ?? ??; RR: Yeonae Malgo Gyeolhon) is a South Korean television series starring Yeon Woo-jin, Han Groo, Jeong Jinwoon, Han Sun-hwa, Heo Jung-min, and Yoon So-hee. It aired on tvN from July 4 to August 23, Original network: tvN. Jul 22,   Marriage Not Dating: Episode 5 by girlfriday. The contract romance fairy dust starts to work its magic on our not-a-couple, because as we all know, acting like you're in love has a way of making you feel all the attendant highs and lows anyway/5.

Yeo-reum confuses me, which I guess is the point of him. But Yeo-reum is weirdly cagey and waaaay too smooth to be trusted fully, and yet, at the same time, it does seem like his feelings for Jang-mi might be genuine. The funny thing is that the contract relationship is making her appear to have become the player, stringing three guys along like a pro.

A rose is just a rose except when your fake boyfriend gifts it to you and suddenly the damned thing makes you swoon. Your email address will not be published. Absolutely like crack.

But the drama will have to stay on its toe to keep the supply fresh and flowing or we will wake up with terrible hangover. The major premise that has taken the drama this far is getting stale by the minute. Get us to the next hook that will sustain the drama for a few more episodes, until it goes all in for the finale.

Unless it goes all flat and middle class halfway, like so many tvN dramas did. In Witch's Romance, that happened when the photographer ex returned. Well that's what actually I'm worried me about. Since eps had been a hit to me, maybe the middle eps could fall into bland and boring hopefully not and it's a pressure for the writers to keep up the intensity.

We have all seen so many dramas start to lose their oomph and have a lot of filler, especially after the first few episodes. So far this has done better than most - Trot Lovers started going downhill for me at the 4th episode. Given how this has gone so far, I am expecting a wild ride in the next 2 episodes, and will be really disappointed if it loses it's way.

It's my favorite drug! And it is the only drama that I watch ongoing, and every week keep refreshing until the subs are out! I just hope they will keep the pace and there is not going to be the infamous 13th episode slump! And you're right about the writing of this episode being totally genius in using the "crappy" situation as the opening only to learn it's higher How sweet.

Just keep on messing our OTP okay? They are going to be BFFs. Totally BFFs. Jang Mi seems to be the only one empathising with the mom and the mom is definitely warming up to her. I bet you she is going to turn out to be Jang Mi's biggest supporter in the future. I can see this happening also, even though Mom now acts like she hates Jang Mi, I think she also sees what she wishes she could be or could have been, so perhaps she is also a bit jealous, or maybe just starting to question herself about her priorities.

I love your comments about Jang-mi challenging Mom's ideas about her own choices and priorities. Rather than being accident-prone or a pushover, I get the sense that Jang-mi is a revolutionary who speaks truth to power-or perhaps more accurately, that she is the revolutionary who speaks emotional honesty to a severely repressed, messed-up system.

That's why I absolutely love details like in the last episode, when Jang-mi took grandma to task for remaining silent even though grandma knew Jang-mi and momma were being taken advantage of. And I loved even more that even though grandma was affronted at first, the comment really made her stop and think, "was I complicit in this?

Should I have said something? She can't help but speak her mind, and she is in touch enough with her own emotions that she is able to call out the small injustices around her. Most families have some form of dysfunction or repression that is only visible from an outside perspective. Good post - and even beyond about cutting through the family cover-up bullshit, I think it is also taking a slam at the whole Korean system of "elders - right or wrong, they are always right" Confucian way of thinking.

That is a very touchy subject in Korea, but it seems to me that there is some element of that thinly disguised as ranting and Mom and Grandma. This drama really caught me off guard. Super Like! There's a certain "freshness" to this drama, or perhaps it's just that I so like the actress playing Joo Jang Mi.

Couldnt agree more! I'm glad that Jang mi isn't a meek girl. She and Ki tae have a sizzling chemistry though they're bickering most of the time. Cant wait to see they're getting married! Jus looking at the images above with their fake date. If he had laud his cards on the table it would of been a done deal but since YR is the one she believes is pursuing her she can't let opportunities be wasted.

LOL really love their fake date! They're actually enjoying every moments,it seems a lot like love ; i just dont really get it why she keeps going to YR, it's not like he's.

Marriage, Not Dating

He's not that nice either and pretentious,and he hurts her feelings in several occasion before. There's that magical, element of 'real' and believeable, even in all it's hilariously entertaining high drama.

Totally enjoying the ride so far, even though I was turned off initially by her clingyness in ep 1. I think that all families are dysfunctional, they just vary in degrees. But these 'sets' of parents are polar opposites and to the n'th degree of extreme dysfunction.

GiTae parents are controlling and wanting to keep up appearances. JangMi parents are not supportive to the point of abandonment. I loved this episode for the humor and the heart! I loved how we got to see even more sides to them!

Also I appreciate this drama having all the characters being multi layered. I feel a lot of dramas dont do this enough. Also I found it hilarious how the fake date started with them being cold towards each other until the end when you couldn't tell it was fake at all!! A lot like the relationship!!! Thanks so much for the ates by the way!!

When I read them I can understand the little jokes that aren't conveyed well if you don't understand the language yourself! Ki-tae's Mom won me over in this episode Plus I am a big fan of Kim Hae-Sook. I get this feeling that despite her own issues, that Jang Mi is the only one that really understands what Mom is going through. Agreed : hopefully they'll get along soon. Dude, I totally fast forwarded to the end to figure out the reason for the angst, JUST to miss the poop incident, JUST to catch them speaking about it, JUST to be totally confused, then relieved muahahhahahah that they were actually okay.

Not bad, this show. Thanks for the speedy and wonderful recap, girlfriday! I love the writing and where this show seems to be heading. I really love this stage of the contact relationship and that the writing is letting things develop naturally without rushing while still managing to keep up the pace and keep things interesting. I had no idea what to expect from the dramatic angsty beginning and laughed my head off while feeling so bad for Jang Mi at the actual events.

It's going to make watching this drama even more awesome!! No way! There's an actual twitter account?! Haha that's fantastic! That's like in Let's Eat when they had the actual Shiksa blog up!

I'm just really adoring the relationships, especially between the leads, but also between the leads and Ki-tae's mother. I also love that their mainly Ki-tae's internal issues are still the driving force of the drama, in that, instead of just doing this marriage charade for his apartment, he's really doing it to protect himself.

And I'm really liking the direction the drama is taking us with all the characters. This drama is just clever, fun and doesn't take itself too seriously Best trolling by a writer for an episode. The episode is chock full of metaphors and toilet humor literally?

Real funny! I couldn't laugh at the poop scene. It is awful, I'm imagined it and I thought I smelt it. I don't think it was supposed to be laugh out loud funny, but more of a OMG - laughing and crying at the same time moment.

The poor girl. I jus keep re watching and re watching this drama. I love the scenes of jang mi and ki tai together. Haha but this episode was epic. I really thought he did something horrible to her and u can see in his eyes he was genuinely sorry if jang mi felt hurt by the comments.

I jus don't get why she doesn't see his sincerity. It's great that his character doesn't really need much work with. He is friendly and understanding of the people around him but he doesn't give into pressure from either his ex or his mother. He is able to relate and even sympathize with people which as a whole new element to k drama from my experience Other than opening himself up more I think jang mi has the furthest to go.

Hopefully u can fully understand ki tai sincerity even though it looks like the two aren't in any real relationship but once they start caring and worrying for the other it's gonna get good. I'm really like this drama up to now but I have to say I just don't love the bathroom humour. I basically fast forwarded from the "at least have some wine! I couldn't. I'm glad I'm reading these recaps to know what I missed in those minutes, though!

In other news, I know there are some Yeo-reum haters out there I love him! I don't care, I'll keep the sexy man with the sexy cooking and the sexy back all to myself! Obviously not as emotional as an OTP-omg-finally-they-kiss kiss but there's something about him removing the pot to get closer that really did it for me.

Idc for YR characte much since i know he is there to provoke the lead but if that kiss was really so satisfying there is hardly any talk of it. Most the time if it's the first kiss and u r really into it. I myself would of jus toss the pot on the floor but he casually place it on the table.

I feel like the kiss was jus to test where she was at with ki tai. Then the whole u kiss me at night thing. The dude came on to her. I get it takes to to mingle but if he didn't force the issue nothing would of happen. He jus seems even more ridiculously childish to me when he threw away her kimchi I agree with you, I dislike Yeo-reum more and more with each episode.

Not just because he's coming between our OTP, but because he seems dishonest. Everything he says and does around Jang-mi seems so calculated and smooth, as girlfriday said, not a guy to trust. But more than that, the way he acts around Jang-mi, blowing hot and cold, with times when he's deliberately intensely focused on her, and then times when he ignores her or even gets irritated at her over stupid things, does not give me "this guy likes you" vibes.

Plus, I don't care what anyone says, no guy would give a girl he likes almost-spoiled food on a "date". Also, how can Jang-mi not blame him for the poop incident?

Yeah, I'm not convinced he's trustworthy either but I'm OK with the ambivalence right now. We'll know he's true colours soon enough. Meanwhile, y'all can have Ki-tae, I'll keep sexy man with the sexy eyes and the sexy back all to myself. I'll chain him to my kitchen and it shall be wonderful.

Haha, enjoy! Not gonna argue with you about his sexiness, it's his actions that give me weird vibes. Other than the cooking of course, I agree with you about a man who cooks. YR is going to be the catalyst that drives jang mi to ki tai. I hope. I feel like once she gets to know his personality and wat he hasn't done for her and realizes what ki tai has done she will fall harder than before.

unto others you

YR just comes off as really skeevy and it's a combo of the writing and subpar acting I think. Like the actor is trying too hard to look good all the time and it's noticeable and it's blending in with the character himself trying his best too charm people at all times. I actually love Jinwoon in the K-pop world, but he's so irritating in this. Skeevy is the right word. Jang Mi is an idiot for falling for all the dishonesty and then spoiler forgiving him for it because of his "past".

The lead actor has grown on me so much. I still don't find him very attractive, but he's hilarious! The guy seriously cant act.

Secret Han Sunhwa Jinwoon Han Groo Yeon Woojin Yoon SoHee/Sohui Heo Jeongmin #????. yes i also looking for the new ost in ending of ep really like that song. omwo, i think many OST of Marriage not Dating are good & worth to listen!

Jul 23,   Marriage Not Dating: Episode 6 by LollyPip. This episode begins to delve a little further into each character and what makes them tick, though each answer seems to lead to even more questions. We finally find out exactly what happened to Jang-mi to make her so terrified of being alone, and why Ki-tae is so determined to stay single/5.

I dont care if he's sexy or what. We all know he has killer smile,but no need to smile all the time,right? On the other hand I'm glad that he's not that adorable.

Subtitled in Arabic, German, Greek, English, Spanish /

At least we're not gonna have a second lead syndrome. I'm not even going to argue 'cause what's the point? I totally get YR being hurt over people rejecting his food, though I think that in his place I would feel like these people just stomped all over my dreams. I would be very dejected!

And I would totally take it out on anyone that was around me at the time. I'm not sure that YR truly likes JM he's the second lead so I'm thinking he either does already or soon will - that's basically in his job description but I have no shame in admitting that men that cook are a huge turn on so I'm biased. I have no problems with KT, I think he'll be super cute once the full onset of the feels sets in Ki-tae IS disturbingly anal.

sleeping dogs lie

That's one of those things you can put up with in dramaland but perhaps not in a real guy. Then again, Jang-mi is well on her way to breaking him of his fastidious ways No I agree, it is endearing, in a drama lead.

How cute is his little egg timer? But I think in real life I would just kick him out of the kitchen and do all the cooking myself, lol. Thire kiss was pretty hawt and natural, and I believe his feelings for her are genuine, but YR I don't hate While he's nice and all, he constantly all smiley while getting his business done.

never knocks twice

That part doesn't sit well with me. And if you appreciate Jang Mi's gift of kimchi, well then you like her kimchi and keep it anyways. Could not love this drama more, totally anchored by Han Groo's committed and energetic performance.

With concept shows like this, you really depend on high quality actors to continuously sell the lunacy of the premise, and these are managing to do that and then some. Love it! The most entertaining ct of this drama for me is the ambiguity of feelings for most of the characters. You hear them say something and always have to ask yourself if they are being sincere at that point or just acting.

Or are they acting like they're acting? The actors must be having a ball with these roles! Same here, and it seems like both shows are getting better as they go.

Let's hope that trend continues! Thanks for the recap!

Rome, the Romans

Still, the build-up to the "typhoon explosion" was so well done, and so unexpected, and it just worked on so many levels. Gross and uncomfortable though it was at times, lol. It makes those basic tropes multilayered and complex so that they come to life in a completely fresh way.

See all.

Then she made them for him and left him, and it put him off kimchi ever since. Yeo-reum shakes off the serious atmosphere and stands to leave, but Jang-mi stops him. She thanks him for telling her something so personal and they smile at each other for a long moment. Yeo-reum teases that she must be falling in love again, and jokes that that story always works on girls.

Suddenly they hear the sound of a camera, and see a woman in a dark hoodie photographing them. We go back to three years ago again, a while later, and Se-ah tells Ki-tae that she bought the place next door so that they could have more room. Ki-tae is furious, since he had told her how precious this home was to him. She brags that she can find out his secrets and use them to get her way, then ushers in a group of workers and orders them to break down the wall between the apartments.

This tense confrontation is witnessed by Jang-mi and Yeo-reum, and also by Aunt Mi-jung who is crouched out of sight.

Looking back on the manipulation tactics of his mother and Se-ah, Jang-mi suddenly understands why Ki-tae is so opposed to marriage. Ki-tae stands frozen for a moment, then his eyes roll back and he clasps Jang-mi close and deepens the kiss.

All I can think right now is this: three cheers for cable television! So much kissing and skinship in this episode. I can only overlook so much before I start to have trouble suspending my disbelief and accepting that the proper response to an unexpected smooch is to stand stock-still with your eyes wide open. Yeah, me neither. It feels very natural, and explains why these characters feel so genuine and accessible.

The more I watch, the more impressed I am with the writing on this show. Information about the characters is doled out in just the right amounts and at just the right times, but never revealing more than we need to know at that moment. So many dramas give the viewers all the background information on the characters right away, leaving us to pull out our hair in frustration at watching them stumble around clueless for episodes, since WE know that if they just talked about X, or did Y, then everything would be fine.

Their actions make as much sense to me as they do to the characters themselves. I really have no complaints about any part of it. Your email address will not be published. Dude, I'm pissed. That cold open was purposely misleading, which is totally different from deftly twisting the expectation, a la Episode 5. This time, we're given footage of something that didn't actually happen, which is just plain trickery.

I feel like I was lied to. Thanks for the recap and actually saying what all of us have been feeling for soooooooooooooooo long. I watched this episode twice, to make sure I don't miss the opening scenes Chill lax ladies. I have a feeling that the exact scene will be next episode.

I have faith in the show. Million Thanks for the recap. I'm certain it's yet to come. If I'm not mistaken he's wearing a different shirt.

Though she happens to be wearing the same top. Fingers crossed! Yes, I was tracking that black and white striped top for the whole show and then - what happened?

She kept it on :. But the several tvN dramas of recent past seem to indicate a business model, in which tvN dramas begin with a loud bang, push the envelope a bit, and flirt with crossing the boundaries.

Then suddenly in the middle of its run, it gets religion and begin conforming to the most bland, uncontroversial social conventions to go out with the least noise. In this one, like I've said before, the I-want-you-to help-me-avoid-marriage hook is getting tired and the drama needs to find a new hook. It will probably be the oops-I-fell-in-love-with-you-instead thing. But how tvN does that old trick can make a lot of difference.

I'm holding on to the idea that the scene is still going to come up later on in the next episode or so. I was thinking about it after the episode. I realized the scene is between Hoon Doong and Hyun Hee. Well, Im not a hundred percent sure but. I guess? Nah, it wasn't the same room. I think it was just a tease of Ki-tae and Jang-mi hopefully in the future. We are already enjoying the show.

No need for them to pull a gimmick like that. Just hope it was someone's brain fart and it won't happen again. Ok, I'm not crazy, I went back and rewatched the episode wondering if I had missed the reference to the opening, but nope, writers trolling.

The people in the first scene are wearing the same clothes as Jang-mi and Ki-tae in the drunk scene. I won't even be mad if that's the case.

With a bit of parody: Look at his body language in the last scene. One arm wrapped around her, and the other stick-straight by his side. And a bit of meta: Wasn't the cold open like the opening sequence in I Need Romance ? Bed scene, with the belt buckle Remember, that scene was also a fictional tease. I do not think it's the same. In "I need romance 2" was the first episode in which there was no speculation.

And it is perfectly explained it was a fantasy of a script. However, this scene does not have any sense to me. I believe it was to reach the conclusion that it was too soon for that. But still do not understand why they did not use the imagination of one of the two to show that scene. Because what they accomplished is that many felt cheated.

I think the cold open was of Hoon Dong and Hyun Hee because when he woke up the next morning, the same plaid shirt from the opening was on the edge of the bed. It was not the two leads it was her ex-the-restaurant- guy and her 'girlfriend' from the department storethey showed clips of the two leads for the first 2 seconds.

I re watch that scene a few times and it is definitely gi tae room since the couch and watch boxes are on the shelf. I'm hoping he either dreamt it or imagine the whole situation. Yeah, see I actually really liked what the scene ended up becoming so I'm not all that disappointed with being misled. I think they shouldn't have flat out shown something that didn't happen though. Imo, that kiss was a much better way to start things off! The writer is a troll and while I am pissed, it's actually a pretty good twist on the previous cold opens we've been getting.

I love it. As someone pointed out on gsscthunder.com, this time we werent given a countdown so no promises are made about the cold opening ; could be to mislead us about the drunk scene, but could be a future occurence too.

Navigation menu

Keeping my hopes high! Eh, really? I also counting down because in other episode there was clue to count downbut in this episode there is no any clue to count down so i not expect anything. Sometimes in Korean dramas you have to use your imagination huh. The next morning the soup was still on and the note was there for him to eat soup instead of drinking coffee. We should be adult enough that in Korea there are some things not shown. The drama is really a good one and I appreciate that since they are far and in between.

Thanks to the writers and subbers. So many misleading things about that open. They were wearing the clothes they wore when he got drunk with her dad! And then there was no countdown. What a fake out! I had to rematch the beginning, thinking that it might've been about the jerk 1st boyfriend and her supposedly friend yes, they have namesbut too lazy to look 'em up.

I still don't understand what I saw. Was it about them? Cause that's just trolling!! I already imagined a lot of things there, actually.

It's a good thing they ended the episode with that hot kisses!!! I fell in love with Ki-Tae in this episode. It was intended to mislead but I thought by the end that's who the scene was really about? I just assumed that those were two completely different scenes-they were just way too different. I think they'll revisit the other scene sometime later in the series. Love the kiss. Did he just kissed her for real or is it still fake? Keke GT I know you ate fallen already.

I think more hot kisses will come my way Loving this drama so much. I picked it up just for fun and really wasn't expecting it to be so good. Tvn needs to stop playing with my heart, the rate at which they are producing gems like this is making it hard for me to do anything else but stay glues to the screen. Omg you guys. I'm just so in love with this show. Like seriously, I'm crazy for it. I LOVE our leads together and this episode is one of my favorites for them. When Ki-tae got drunk and bonded with her dad I was already super satisfied, but then he went on to be such a hilarious drunk!

Yet, I love how instead of being just another hilarious drunk scene, except with him instead of her for once lol the bed scene ended up actually being such a vulnerable and sad scene, and managed to be so, while still making me laugh and swoon there was stripping involved, after all lol. He isn't your typical spoiled playboy who wants to date girls without committing or keep his nice apartment. He's just a normal guy who very desperately feels the need to protect himself and the place that has been a solace to him all his life, and that's why he's doing all of this.

I think Jang-mi had already begun to understand that, but this was the first time she saw just how much of a struggle it is for him. Of all the characters, I really do think his growth will be one of the most rewarding. What's lovely about this scene is that it leads to such a lovely conclusion!!! I cannot express enough how much I LOVED that their first kiss was initiated by her, out of concern for his well-being, thus highlighting the fact that they now know and care about each other's situation enough to prolong the ruse for each other's sake and not for themselves.

This, of course, mostly applies to Jang-mi because, at this point, the ruse doesn't really help her. It's just so great because I was totally already expecting their first kiss to happen eventually for their sham, but I definitely assumed that Ki-tae would do it because he's the one who really needs this. That's why I just love how everything unfolded so differently and much more satisfyingly than I expected! And thats not even mentioning how he reciprocated.

Also has anyone else noticed how pretty and bright Han Groo's eyes are? The lighting in that last scene set them off beautifully. I agree I am totally enjoying every bit of this drama, and have yet to find something about it I don't like. It's so real and refreshing. Thanks for the re-cap. Thanks for the recap. I'm certainly on the loving this drama bandwagon. What a great show that's not afraid to show real relationships. I can't think of anything about it I don't like.

Better and better! I don't mean to be naive, but I just expect this drama to continue soaring as it goes on. It's not possible in my mind for this drama to lose steam at any point.

Woo-hoo for cable! Adults are like adults! This is like the first drama I've seen where we've got cross-kissing going all over the place. I always hate that in dramas, the male leads tend to be the ones who get to kiss more than one person, so I like that Jang-mi is like a regular person who kisses more than one guy. And I don't love her any less for that. When Ki-tae deepened that kiss, ohmygawd.

It made me squee, and I hardly squee. This couple, so great. I was disappointed that opening didn't happen, but I know something better will come along. I love these openings by the way because I'm finding they keep me hooked.

Urgh, Se-ah, could you want anything without being more selfish? So frickin' delusional, that one.

can't take with

Hate her. And Yeo-reum, I don't care for you. Your mysteriousness is neither attractive nor swoon-worthy, so stop it! I love Jang-mi, but I don't like it when she's with this guy. So much to say! I wished I'd picked this drama up after it finishes so I could marathon the whole thing!

But then I wouldn't be able to write this. The male lead is portrayed as a frigid homebody, while the female lead is out drinking and kissing-around. Then when the male lead gets drunk the female lead piggybacks him home and undresses him Later, when the two finally kiss, the female lead initiates it without 'asking permission' Meanwhile, the female second lead gets the male second lead drunk so she can take advantage of him.

I actually was pleasantly surprised with Se-ah. I mean she's obviously one of the bad guys at this point, but I liked the fact that she interferes with the main couple not because she has feelings for Ki-Tae as in every dramaland romantic trianglebut because she wants a child from him WITHOUT him. I think it's a nice twist, since I assumed she was a manipulator in love, but nope, she's just selfish, and that goes so effing well with her character!

The only character that didn't surprise me and please me is Yeo-Reum, I mean being abandoned by your mother with pancakes is pretty common in dramaland :P. I see her as very controlling and her air of entitlement makes me wonder if she could ever have feelings for someone else because of these reveals:.

Especially 2 - nevermind the purchase of house. I get it she doesn't enjoy the 'cramped space' HE chose and wants, but hey Some prior consultation and comunication would be err, nice? This isn't related to Se Ah's personality,but her eyebrows have been getting on my nerves. I know, but it's a thing of mine. Loving the show, I hope it stays strong and doesn't go all melo on us.

I agree.

covers multitude

I think Se Ah still has feelings for Gi Tae she basically says as much to various people, and I wouldn't put it past her to have contrived that date auction to have the chance to buy a date with Gi Tae.

I agree with se ah trying to save face since from the flashbacks it looks like se ah was more then willing to marry and live with gi tae for the rest of her life but he was the one that initiated the breakup. I know right! Besides, it's one thing to sleep with your friend's ex, and another to sleep with the total jerk who screwed her over!!

Marriage not dating ep 5 recap

To me that means she completely dismisses how much Hoon Dong hurt her friend. I feel that the writer did that so that the viewer would get satisfaction because it is a kind of indirect revenge on Hyun Hee, and at the same time it doesn't compromise Jang Mi's image as a good person The kiss at the end was way better than the kiss she had with Yeo Reum especially because she's making the decision to save him regardless of the pain and mess it will bring her, but what's with his limp arm?!?!?!?!

I couldn't help noticing her full-heartedly flinging her arms around him while he just scoops her in with just one aggressively decided arm while the other just hangs there. Killed the shot for me. That kiss at the end was super hot. I love her eye-flutter after he stars really kissing her back. I see his one-armed embrace for two reasons: 1.

It shows that he is still torn on being attracted to her.

He can't help but NOT to reciprocate her skinship. This is the second time she surprised him with an embrace - the first time when she saved him in the bathroom. On that occasion, being half-out of his mind and unable to think things through carefully, he grabs on to her for dear life.

In this second case, although he's surprised, he still has his wits about him - enough to be able to hold back just a bit. From a cinematography perspective, his keeping one arm down make the shot more open to the viewer and allows the audience to see more of what is going on between them. Thank you, LollyPip. I totally agree with your comments about how deft the writing is and how it really makes the characters seem fresh and real. And of course, it's always nice to see characters look like they're actually enjoying kisses and skinship, whoo.

I really enjoyed this episode not just because it was very funny but because it also started giving us more concrete glimpses into the motivations and backgrounds of these characters. How interesting is it that both JangMi and YeoReum experienced abandonment as children but they have grown to deal with it in opposite ways?

Yeo Reum remains aloof so that no one can get close enough to hurt him again while JangMi throws herself after anyone who shows her some interest because she's so desperate for connection and so fearful of being alone. Him revealing that to her is seriously the perfect way to shake her resolve, although he doesn't even know that. These characters have experienced so much trauma and it colours everything they do, even as adults.

I think there is a lot of truth in that. And while KiTae might be going to extreme lengths to retain his solitude, I can completely understand his desire to keep everyone at arm's length and to revel in solitude.

She is blackmailing her ex fiance into helping her have a child so that she can live with someone who is just like her?! I had to pause the show for awhile just to absorb the immense wrongness of all that. I do not blame KiTae for ending things with her, wow. I really hope we get some insight into what makes her tick because I can't currently fathom it. Definitely not okay with HyunHee getting HoonDong wasted so that she could sleep with him.

So wrong!

And I still can't tell if she's genuinely interested in him or not. I really thought she was only interested in his money up until now but this show's doing such a good job of giving all the characters depth that I want to believe there's more to it than that.

Also just yowza at KiTae deepening the kiss at the end. I'm glad the opening didn't happen just because it would have been way too soon. They don't feel that strongly about each other yet so I'm okay with them taking things slow. I agree that Se Ah is just freaking nuts.

But what makes it interesting is that I have never seen that trope used in a drama before, and am curious to see where this leads to.

She seems to be an extremely controlling person - and maybe thinks that if she is a single mother she can mold the poor kid into her exact self image we all know how well that usually works out in real life.
