It was wonderful seeing the love between the women in KiTae’s family and seeing his father get his comeuppance and Mom get her fire back. Just like how JangMi’s parents made a scene at the hospital while making up – seeing that made me realize that she got her « scene-making » ways from them. Thank you guys so much for the great recaps and insight you’ve provided and to all the commenters who left such great comments about the show as well. You two said what I wanted to say and more so much better than I ever could have, especially your last lign here, girlfriday, ha. I’m going to miss this show so much, especially the lead couple. They had so many adorable, sweet, wonderful and heartfelt moments in the last few episodes and it was a joy to witness them grow as people and as a couple.
Lastly, for those who may miss watching Yeon Woo Jin Last night I watched episode 1 of Kara’s Secret Love, Missing You. This was also a great consolation after being disappointed so much with Doctor Stranger (not that they have any relation). Good directing, writing, and most of all, good actors. This drama did not have any pretensions at being life-like, or having any deep meaning. It never attempted to moralize or to stylize the scenes (again, unlike Doctor Stranger).
Read allBefore Joo Jang Mi can propose to her boyfriend, he has his best friend, Gong Gi Tae, help him break up with her. Meanwhile, Gi Tae is eager to remain single, but as his family insists he marries, he proposes a fake engagement to Jang Min. I guess people really experience different things watching the same drama (GF gave MGIAG a 10, which was a mere 7 despite my seunggi-loving heart and soul).
The great prize in marriage is Christ-centered intimacy with a spouse — knowing and being known, loving and being loved by a husband or wife. The great prize in dating is Christ-centered clarity about marriage (or toward marriage). Romantic intimacy is safest in the context of marriage, and marriage is safest in the context of clarity.
Us Weekly exclusively confirmed in June 2020 that Shahi and Steve Howey had separated two months prior after 11 years of marriage. A romantic comedy about a man who doesn’t want to get married and a woman who has no luck in marriage prospect. « Marriage Not Dating » explores several themes related to love and relationships. One of the main themes is the pressure society puts on individuals to get married. The drama shows how this pressure can lead people to make rash decisions and settle for someone they are not truly in love with.
Another theme is the idea that love can be found in unexpected places. The drama shows how Gong Ki Tae and Joo Jang Mi initially dislike each other but eventually fall in love as they get to know each other better. Lie To Me has a similar premise although isn’t nearly as good as Marriage, Not Dating.
Love (ft. Marriage & Divorce)
Ki-tae and Jang-mi enjoy a candlelit bubble bath together the night before their wedding. They reminisce over all the key points of their relationship, teasing and joking adorably. Jang-mi asks if he doesn’t have something for her like oh, maybe a ring, and when he shrugs she commands him to take the whole thing back. They can’t do even the most romantic things without fighting.

This drama seriously made me wanna follow korean dramas again. (Although, I would die if that happened to me.) Usually, guests wait until after they get some alcohol in their system before they create a scene at your wedding, but nope, this was all sober. At least the busybody Gong ladies now know about Dad’s infidelity. Would it have killed Se Ah to have added « with my boyfriend/fiance/husband » to her pregnancy news, or is vague just her thing? I was relieved Show didn’t go down the cliche path of Jang Mi being pregnant when she threw up because I did not want a child to be a factor in his marriage proposal.
In fact, my favorite thing about this drama, now that it’s over, is that everyone stayed fundamentally true to themselves. This goes for the parents as well as the leads, because none of them really changed dramatically; they only learned to accept themselves and take responsibility for their own happiness. Nobody had to have a personality transplant in order for someone to love them… yes they all changed some, but they just became better versions of themselves. Before, their quirks and hangups were holding them back, but they learned to take those qualities in themselves and use them in a positive way instead of letting the personality trait be in control. After a successful surgery, Jang-mi’s dad cuts fruit for Mom and tells her his plan to open a pizza delivery place. She grouches that it’s not much better than chicken and lets him know that she still hates him, but she’s taking him back so as not to burden Jang-mi.
The later part of the show reveals how our lives may seem shallow and flat on someone else’s eyes when actually things are boiling behind the curtain. And i really dont mind the second leads that much. I totally love how messy, loud and chaotic the wedding scene was. It ended the way it started- everyone being a drama queen. Lol i was on my way to post that interview here but you beat me to it. I just really admire han groo in every way possible and i wish her great success for her future.
When this drama started I forgot about it and all the news that were posted here. I was just checking viki and it appeared, I read the description and watched https://legitdatingsites.com/ episode 1. I really loved the OTP, but the scene that by far made me grin the most was the one where the 3 women collectively kicked dad to the curb.
Arguments happen in every marriage, even healthy ones. In fact, research suggests that couples who argue effectively are 10 times more likely to have a happy relationship than those who sweep difficult issues under the rug. Marriages thrive on healthy expressions of intimacy—and that doesn’t always mean sex. Plenty of married couples don’t engage in sex regularly, and it’s not always a sign of an underlying problem. Health issues, life changes, and busy schedules can all contribute to a lack of sex.
In season 4 he writes a book and in the series finale it is published, he is also invited to go on a book tour. It doesn’t mean you bare your heart in the first instance, just that you need to be honest about your intentions, fears, and desires. For instance, if you’re dating as a young widow and would like to remarry at some point, make sure you let communicate this to a new or potential partner sooner rather than later.
