Absolved of guilt, Ki-tae asks what Jang-mi is hiding, and she tells him she only paid Yeo-reum for his part of the bar since he’s leaving. The busybody Gong ladies, who have been complaining about everything, now take offense that the family’s only heir is marrying a bar owner. Jang-mi’s mom hollers at them, “What’s wrong with a bar?!

Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency Ep 6

Tonight’s This is Us took a page out of that book, chronicling the ultimate end of Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Toby’s (Chris Sullivan) marriage. 7 – this reminded me of Marriage Not Dating party posters, minus the humorous angle of guys looking rather unhappy in contrast to overly excited ladies – here everyone seems to have fun. Hope it stays the same in the show too. From the group above Nos. 3 and 7 will be on my watchlist. In regards to No. 3, DOCTOR ROMANTIC 3, having not watched 2 probably would not matter. It’s good to see the writer of Misaeng working on new stuff, but nothing about the premise or cast (except maybe Park Ji-hoo if I try hard) interests me.

You’re a jerk, but at least you’re a good man! Just as Hoon Dong tells Gi Tae that Jang Mi won’t ever show up again, we have a very drunk Jang Mi stumbling through his doors. She downs a beer right in front of the boys, who seem to be breaking a sweat, and now having some (more) liquid courage running through her, she chases Hoon Dong down with the glass bottle in her hand. Everyone else just watches the show that’s taking place with amusement. When Hoon Dong finally replies that he’ll freeze Gi Tae’s rent for 3 years, the two make a deal and Gi Tae prepares himself for the water splash that is about to come.

Someone rings his doorbell frantically, but instead of Mom as he expected, it’s a drunk Jang-mi bringing ramyun. He’s not in the mood for company and starts to call her a taxi, when she spots his gigantic fish tank and whines that if he won’t let her make ramyun then she’ll make fish stew. She starts grabbing for fish with her bare hand, calling it Nemo. Ki-tae wrestles her away from the tank, insisting that it isn’t Nemo, but not before she manages to grab one fish and drop it on the floor. ” and gets the fish back in the tank and roars at her to leave.

So, no, he doesn’t really believe in luck. Now, Hoon too asked her to live together when he told her, “So let’s share our fortune and misfortune with each other.” But the proposals are different. This is unlike Hoon who ASKED for her hand. He demanded an active participation from her. More importantly, although he didn’t tell her why he wanted her hand, she trustingly gave her hand to him. Lee Soo’s version was the clichéd storybook proposal.

Marriage Not Dating: Episode 16 (Final)

Mom and son obviously have a very tense relationship and Mom actually threatens Gi Tae that if he doesn’t want to move back home then he better bring the girl she invited. Gi Tae automatically connects the dots and realizes that the missing lady that Jang Mi was talking about want in fact his mom. Hoon Dong waves for Gi Tae to come help but he gets ignored. Jang Mi is legitimately upset that he has made a fool out of her when she truly loved him and even dreamt of a future with him. She’s so angry that she brings the bottle over her head about to strike him but Gi Tae steps in to stop her.

Se-ah asks Yeo-reum to bring her information on the couple and offers him an envelope, which he accepts. Some patrons make a rude comment to Jang-mi, and Mom kicks them out. Mom pulls ready-to-go divorce papers out from under the register and prepares to sign, but Jang-mi stops her and agrees to help with the memorial. Yeo-reum lays out a picnic for Jang-mi, and she’s touched to see the same fancy dish he was studying so intently earlier in the day.

Lunch turns into a passive-aggressive standoff, as both men trade insults and ignore Jang-mi’s protests. Yeo-reum gets the upper hand by boldly asking if Ki-tae and Jang-mi have slept together, figuring out that they haven’t by Ki-tae’s spit-take, but claiming he doesn’t care either way. Ki-tae spends 48 hours locked in the bathroom, reading, exercising, and fighting boredom. He weakens and hallucinates his friends and family saying how tired they are of him, knowing none of them will come and rescue him. For a moment he perks up thinking of Jang-mi, but remembers their fight and loses hope. He lies on the floor and passes out, just as we saw him at the top of the episode.

This show has helped me end my drama drought! Also, does anyone know what the ratings are for this show? I hope the domestic audience is enjoying the drama as much as I am. I love that KT understands this about her. Having summed her up accurately, he has been counting on her to embarrass herself for him. He understands that she can’t stop caring, that she cannot hide her true feelings.

The situations of 3 main female characters are all intriguing. I think they went on the walk to the karaoke first then he tried again at home. He offered the bottle of wine to his daughter then asked his wife to go out. In the bedroom scene, you can see he’s now drinking the bottle of wine so I assumed he had it when he got back home. Interesting that this is from the same writer of Princess Aurora (where one of the most memorable crack kdrama line is from “cancer cells are living things, so it’s wrong to kill them”). I wonder what got TV chosun to pick up her drama after a long hiatus.

It did a tremendous job of showcasing that even if they’re dysfunctional and you’re not close to them – your family still shapes you into who you are in a big way. It was wonderful seeing the love between the women in KiTae’s family and seeing his father get his comeuppance and Mom get her fire back. 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. Granted, where we were taken wasn’t always roses.

Hilariously though, Ki-tae does say he likes how it’s easy to just say a few words to a woman and everything is fine. Jang-mi tells her dad to go to the hospital but he says that he won’t, since if her mom didn’t tell him she was sick it must mean she really hates him. He thinks his presence will only make her upset and she’ll feel worse. Jang-mi’s insistence that she’s unsure about marriage just makes Dad even angrier and he demands to know what Ki-tae did to make her uncertain.

It is pretty funny, love both leads but I have some doubts about legal knowledge of writer. I don’t know much about Korean law but it is kind hard to believe me that psychiatrist who is only witness can be exempt from doctor-patient confidentiality without patient consent in civil case like divorce. Otherwise why even there is doctor-patient confidentiality if someone can reveal it so easily. It definitely seems like all 3 men are cheating on their spouse but the one that I disliked the most is the professor husband. My heart ache for the wife because she handle work, kids and house chores all by herself. — this lead to her not having time to take care of herself.

I think we have a type of dramas we like… These three share the same extension of relationship beyond the main couple. With TK2H we have jaeha’s position as a king and his relationship with his mother, his sister, and eun shi kyung. While in reply1997 we have the ever supportive group of friends. I enjoyed the beginning parts, middle dragged on with the secondary characters I didn’t care about, but ending was quite different and refreshing.
