If nothing else, he's there when she needs a friend, unlike basically everyone else. Even though I admit that the value of the company is important - the lesson Jang-mi is slowly learning - they're young and they're having fun and enjoying each other's company; ain't nothing wrong with that.

It actually kind of sucks for her that she also has to deal with the fake relationship with awful fake in-laws and the awful ex on the side. Also I find it refreshing that the side pair has a believable potential romance to seriously threaten the main paring - one that's not just leftover feelings from a previous relationship. Anyway, great writing, good cast, and lots of cuteness means that I'm happy.

It's been a while since I was genuinely rooting for the main pairing without wanting the dude to get a lobotomy, so I'm excited to be in for the ride. YR and JM in the real world and without worrying about KT would probably date for a little while and have fun doing so. JM hopefully has learned to protect herself enough that she isn't falling hopelessly, madly in love - but going with what makes her feel giggly, at ease, warm.

Right now, with all his teasing smiles, hugs and food, that person is YR. KT is the opposite. He challenges her, wants her to break old habits and be stronger and smarter about life.

point

Nothing warm about him! HD pointed out that being "cool" is the most important thing. This is why I love GF's mention of the "fortress of solitude" In Superman, it's a cold, distant place.

I cannot deal with Han Yeo Rum, he has two expressions: expressionless that looks kinda like he's angry and then his fake smiling face. He's not at all rival worthy!!! I wish they'd show more Jangmi and Gitae scenes! As usual, I agree with everything you say and I even teared up a little because I am so happy that the writing is just so brilliant. Like, I have been so disappointed those past few months by KDramaland and here I am, breathing again ; Seriously, I am a little bit overreacting but I just really love the drama.

You expect something and then, BAAM, it's something totally unexpected. You ain't getting bored at all. I am always anxious when I click on the next part because I know the episode is going to end soon and that I would have to wait the next day or next week. I am so freakin' addicted and I know it's not sane at all XD.

good idea

Yeon Woo Jin is doing such a good job. His expressions are seriously the best. The way he expressed his feelings through his eyes, it's just so wonderful. This role was really meant for him. He is just so adorable when he couldn't stop starring at Jang Mi's lips. No words for Jang Mi. That girl is so amazing that I just can't anymore. I so love her. When she "threatened" Mom that the Gong family will end if she keeps bothering them.

It's just Even if the drama isn't finished, she became one of my favorite female character along with Cha Yoon Hee of Unexpected You.

Marriage, Not Dating

Those women are so badass! Han Groo was also meant for that role. I can't just see anyone else and it just shows how good she is. GAH, their chemistry is killing me! It's like, you just need to put those two in the same room and explosion because it's so hot lol. There aren't lots of OTP which make me feel like this. The most recent one gotta be Chiaki and Nodame of Nodame Cantabile. And no words for Se Ah. She is so cray cray, it's not sane at all for her and everyone else.

I gotta admit that Sunhwa is doing a good job! I didn't really like her in God's Gift but here, she is shining. Well, burning because she is the devil XD. I understand the appeal of Yeo Rum on paper - he's the easy dating option, no family hassle and he's cute - but what I'm seeing on screen is this shallow guy who uses a tragic backstory to get his own way and worse for a TV show he has no chemistry with his love interest Jang Mi.

The actor isn't good enough to add layers when the writing isn't doing him any favours. He's not sympathetic nor is he your typical self sacrificing second lead. He comes across as a user, one who has no friends and personality switches into a male Jang Mi in an attempt to get KT to like him.

Not because he's desperate to be liked but because he thinks it's his best shot at bunking at KT's place for a while. I love the one line zingers that KT says! In this episode paraphrased - when he said is there a confession where the girl is called a fool, then the one about only people who want to look good cook pasta, then when he asked YR are you Jesus when he suggested the soup left is enough for a good meal for 3 people. So funny and witty, cutting but has not crossed the line into just flat out insulting.

Hope they keep lines like these going! No offense, but I think a lot of people who are saying that the actors portraying Yeo-reum and Hoon-dong are terrible at acting simply don't get it due to a cultural difference They aren't bad actors, they're simply portraying their character. Hoon-dong's isn't perhaps the most realistic- no-one in real life flails about like that when throwing a tantrum, etc.

Yeo-reum is supposed to be this enigmatic character who's a bit shifty and closed off, so the actor isn't doing poorly at all- that's just the way his character is. He's a pretty boy, he knows it, and his smiles are meant to be ambiguous, like a distraction. That said, I'm really loving this drama so far. I adore that the male lead is the one who falls for the heroine first. And I know jealousy isn't pretty, if it leads to wrist grabs and forceful kissing, stalking, etc.

In any drama, period. I'm sorry, I'm a bit of a sadist, but I'm enjoying the love triangle and I hope that his jealousy and angst continues for a bit more. Of course I love Ki Tae and Jang Mi together and I want them to end up together at the end, but I don't hate Yeo-reum for "keeping the OTP apart," because I can see why she's attracted to him and of course, as I mentioned before, Ki Tae's jealousy and angst is so satisfying to me as a viewer.

I must reiterate how much I love your recaps. I enjoy watching this show immensely but I always tune in to your comments on each episode after watching it because it links up themes and little motifs that I either don't notice in all the excitement or notice but didn't fully appreciate until you bring attention to them and analyse them so brilliantly. Once again many thanks. And I'm not sure where to request this, but is there any chance you'll be reviewing the new film Miss Granny?

I enjoyed the movie immensely and would love to read your take on it :D. I don't get it, why is she going through all this for him? For her parents that's not a good reason. At the start it was to get back at her ex, then for her parents since they started talking because of her "engagement. I reference you to a kitchen discussion where she talks about GT sideways and says, she thought she knew him, and pouts and so on.

I believe it was in the typhoon episode before she ate the typhoon food. She said that she liked GT, etc and that he wouldn't realize her existence, but she's being foolish and then YR was listening to her go on about GT and then she ate the typhoon food, he kissed her and at some point she decided to give up GT.

She's been shaking her feelings since then, and decided to devote herself to YR. I think that JM realised that she has some kind of feelings for GT, but she isn't quite sure what to make of that. I don't think she likes him romantically yet, but she does care about him, and he is someone she feels, in an unexpected way, close to. So she likes him, but not in that way.

That's my interpretation, but I'm going to watch that scene again and see if I see what you see. I don't remember the conversation exactly, but my takeaway was that she said Ki-tae gets under her skin and she worries about him being so alone, but that she's romantically interested in YR. I think YR picked up on Jang-mi's worry as having a deeper root than just a platonic friendly thing, but I don't think Jang-mi was aware of her feelings.

I just don't think Jang-mi has even allowed herself to entertain the possibility of being with Ki-tae, considering how open he has been about using her to push his family away. After getting so hurt by her ex, I think she's directed her feelings towards the "safer" man in YR.

Even though he may be sketchier than Ki-tae, Jang-mi doesn't have the depth of feelings towards him, so even if they don't work out, she will not end up quite as heartbroken. With Ki-tae, I think that she instinctually knows that if she falls down that rabbit hole, she is going to fall hard and fast.

That's how I interpret the situation anyway. Great input. He continues to protect her even though he wants her to look horrible in front of his family.

It feels like he unconsciously protects and sincere for each action she is force to into. Well said, lessonlearn.

opinion obvious

I think what Jang-mi is learning right now is the difference between loneliness and being alone-and conversely, the difference between spending time with someone and experiencing emotional intimacy with someone.

Unless she embraces and accepts her own aloneness, she will keep filling the void with empty superficial relationships rather than true intimacy. Right now, Yeo Reum is offering her his physical presence and some light companionship, but what she has with Ki-tae is true emotional intimacy. I think she's just really kind and just cared for GT at this moment.

The realization, not quite there yet. It's just that JM understands GT's sentiments on being alone and she's helping him to get that and nothing more than that. Remember how HD and JM part ways?

I think she doesn't want to experience that again. Love isn't voluntary most of the time You wrote it like she had a choice to like who she likes-one can like someone, but choose not to act on it. The difference is that she chooses differently this time around.

I still got the stronger impression that she likes and is invested in GT romantically, but that she rather push those feelings down and bury herself in YR. In doing so, she's acting "cool" towards GT, which is kinda driving him crazy I love how he finally admitted if only to himself that he wasn't okay at the end. Also so happy that he fell for her first bc this is a mess of his own making. That scene in the in his living room with the three of them was one of my favourite parts of the episode.

They had this odd makeshift family feel and I love shows that do that. Oh, thanks for articulating what is one of my favourite kdrama things that I didn't have a way of describing: "that off makeshift family feel"! I love shows that do that too, so I was in my bliss during the living room scene. It was adorable! GF - Thanks for the recap. It is so perfectly written. From the the French movie suggestion -ooh la la - to the call backs from earlier eps to your final comments.

Reading all of this is so satisfying. It flows beautifully and I am envious of how easy it looks. I know that you have have been doing this for years and keep getting better at it Enough about you. He's perfect. He is exactly what JM wants right now, so let her have him. Did you not see how happy she was with her little head on his shoulder? Is she going to run off and live with him forever and ever?

share your opinion

I don't know. Why not? GT is lovely lovely lovely, I agree, but he is not emotionally available to JM, yet. Even though he ran ran ran to rescue her in the clinic, his first impulse was NOT to reach down and hug her, but to scold her. He didn't even think of it. It was the same after the typhoon episode.

At the suju tent, she sat in front of him with tears running down her face and he just kept correcting her behavior. That is what he thinks she needs right now. To some degree he is right.

Top Contributors

He knows that if she stuck up for herself, she wouldn't have pooped her pants or wouldn't have been run ragged by Auntie. He is playing long game strategy with her so she won't need YR's short game strategy - comfort for her mistakes. She needs both boys right now.

consider, that you

Thing is - One of them can change and become a better partner for her. One of them isn't wise enough to know he needs to change to be a long term partner. It's in GT's hands.

Like GF said, he has to choose to be "someone who might actually risk his pride for love. While I am nodding along with most of what you said I'd also say aybe it's not totally because he's "emotionally unavailable":.

IF he is that emotionally unavailable - I doubt he'd even scold. That's too much effort. He will just be detached. Blame it on his family and upbringing - do you see his mom running in to hug and comfort or scold first?

You are right! Let's see - he is not emotionally ready to make a physical or public-can-see connection - yet - and hides his feelings behind bluster. A bit off-topic, but I was wondering why this drama is not listed under the "Currently Airing" sidebar. Actually, I see that Friday shows are not even on the list. Korea's "prime time" does not include Fridays?

I loved how off-kilter GT was at the beginning of the episode in the restaurant when he's uncomfortably talking to JM and picks up the empty glass to take a sip only to realize that it's empty!

Heehee :.

Maybe it's still a newish time slot on the Korean programming schedule? I remember reading that the new cable channels were experimenting with different slots. Thank you, drama. For introducing me too Yeon Woojin. And that it is possible for a drama to be ridiculously hilarious but also heart thumping at the same time.

Han yeo reum is lack of expression.

can not

Talk about polar opposites. A guy who wants to be alone and a girl who can't be alone. Everything about them is opposite each other, even their parents. Her parents fight all the time and I am still wondering what they fight about while his parents have a legitimate issue to be fighting but they don't.

What a strange couple. Oh gosh Thank you dramagods! Ok, I seriously want to finish watching this because the male lead is adorable, but this second lead male is totally killing it for me! He's like the annoying little brother that tags along everywhere. I'm going to have to tune in later, if they make him disappear.

I like them together.

theme simply

I actually think they are soul mates, but since soul mates rarely end up together so I think they would be just bff. But one thing I like in this show I'm rooting for the male lead as much as the second male lead. Love your recaps and comments. By that I mean, every other character has played with the comedic elements of their characters and situations.

Even Hyun Hee did a little during her first and second meeting of Hoon Dong. The actress' delivery in that scene lacked any comedic element. Or did I just miss out on a good laugh there? Had she smiled, flirted, or been a tad bit more physical while making the demand, it may have come across that way and better followed the tone of the rest of the drama.

marriage not dating - she is crazy but she is mine (MV)

I also hope we get a little more backstory on why for her it has to be Gong Gi Tae. Yeah, I always feel like she's pulling Gi Tae's chain whenever she asks him to do something totally ridiculous, like that's her weird way of flirting with him or something.

Yay for Gi Tae realizing his feelings but no to Yeo Reum. He separates my OTP apart. I can't wait for her to drop Yeo Reum and realize she has feelings for Gi Tae. Kailani July 26, at AM. HH though.

All of his reactions were awesome : I especially loved that moment when he was getting all bent out of shape over the massage chair, and she just pinches his sleeve and asks if he's okay, and then he just gets this look on this face as if he's been completely disarmed by her.

Maybe it will happen in a Korean movie. Just not a drama. French cinema can get pretty erotic. There, my degree in French has not gone for rien. Exactly the 'French' pt made. Taylor July 26, at AM. I had the same thoughts on non-contentment. And a son's that has an independent private practice of his own? Why do so much to climb up further? KT was right, his mom did resort to kidnapping!

Oh, that ending scene hurt so good. And nobody needs for her to do that more than Ki-tae. While I believe that people deserve respect no matter what, I can see why a person like Ki-tae would have a hard time respecting a girl who constantly acts like a doormat to get people to like her.

And you can tell that he wants to, because he calls her out on it every single time, getting more and more frustrated when she keeps letting it happen. Ugh, Mom. Up until this episode I had a lot of compassion for her, because she really is living a tough life. Your email address will not be published. How could a drama be so damn funny yet so heartbreaking. I don't understand Why JM can't say: "I'm in the throne room.

Let me call you back when I'm done. Can't just go shopping with you whenever you drop by. I'll meet you after work or on my day off.

Sorry for double post. They'll come fix it 2 days later! That's Jang Mi also She likes interfering because she gets attention and makes her feel less alone because in effect she's needed. In this one it's shown she's needed by Gi Tae, her mom, her potential mother-in-law, but in being needed in so many ways and not being seen as herself, she's feeling even more isolated than before. If the major theme of this drama is loneliness. That's why she went to Yeo Reum as supposed to Gi Tae.

Gi Tae cut her off by showing up with Se Ah. She thought she was helping him out, but felt a pang of loneliness, jealousy, etc. She wants to be wanted, but she just showed up and decided what she wants more is to be accepted and loved.

She wants real connection and Yeo Reum is giving that to her because Gi Tae's playground tactics and lack of directness isn't much different from Se Ah's. So she showed real character change. She wants connection, not people to be just physically there. The theme is evolving nicely, isn't it?

I was busting a gut from the start of this episode It's gone too far. I was feeling so so so sorry for JangMi. Even though she brought it on herself And then, when YeoReum told her she looked pretty I darn near went through an entire box of kleenex. We hear JangMi narrate that her idea of a wedding dress is for the guy to say she looks pretty when he sees her Up until now, the person who delivered quantum leaps in personal growth in this drama was Jang Mi.

So, when I discuss her biggest weakness, it is not to disparage her but to measure just how far she has traveled since the opening of this drama.

In my opinion, her biggest flaw or weakness or mental disorder, however you want to characterize it was not that she wanted to please everybody, but that she was incapable of understanding what everybody including herself really wanted or needed in the first place. This is because she never saw things in the way they actually were but in the way she wanted them to be or incorrectly imagined they were. As such, every one of her decisions without fail turned into a social disaster.

This flaw was at the crux of her stalking saga against her first love and it is what propelled her into a series of faux pas with Gi Tae, who did not mince words as he criticized her no, make it character-assassinated her. While she did not have a malicious bone in her, she was often the biggest ditz and most inconvenient pest in every social situation into which she injected herself. Indeed, for a lowly shop girl, she roamed high and low, only God knows how. And, for all we know, that is how she would been for the rest of her life.

As they say, that was then. At this point in drama, she is turning into a dazzling swan, and she is not even half way through. It is Gi Tae who worries me. He was, and still is, incapable of anything but cerebral interactions with others. Such a person manages his affairs with exemplary neatness and efficiency, but staying alone is the only way to maintain it. And he knows it, as he tirelessly professed that all he ever wanted was for the world to leave him alone. As a hurricane known as Jang Mi is blowing through his core existence, he can go either way.

I am guessing that the drama will push him in the right direction. I just don't know if the end result will be good enough or drama-worthy. But I am eager to be pleasantly surprised. She's not the type of person who can just bite her tongue when she sees injustice and she is someone who could recognize injustice from a mile away.

She will call it out, loudly occasionally with the support of some soju. It's a tumultuous way of being, but I think it's actually awesome and exactly what Ki-tae's family needs.

People who speak truth to power tend to alienate. They fight for others and they fight for themselves. Many people don't want to fight. They want a comfortable existence. Jang-mi is committed to living a truthful one, and I think that is spectacular. Her main problem as I see it is that she's not choosy enough about who she surrounds herself with. She needs a core group of people who love and appreciate her in all her troublemaking, emotional, truthtelling glory.

She needs a close-knit makeshift family of people who will build her up for the very qualities that cause Ki-tae's mom to try and tear her down. Ki-tae respected that side of her from the very beginning, but he's so terrified of giving up his carefully manicured existence that he's equivocating. She will be known, and that will be infinitely more satisfying than cycling through countless superficial relationships. Why not act haughty and turn her down every once in a while?

And why must she pick up all the calls? She doesn't lack for a backbone-she stood up for herself in the first two episodes, she actually threw a fit because the mother was being ill treated. She is willing to protect others, and stands up for herself and others. What she really lacks is confidence because she had a trauma where she was alone. Jang Mi's disease is that she wants to help and be wanted.

She wants to fill in that loneliness. Being alone feels like a disease to her. But she just discovered what she really wants is connection, and she isn't getting that from anyone in her family or close to her. The closest approximate is Yeo Reum. Who is distant, but emotionally supportive and available, though his details are sketchy. And then YeoReum's response was so understated that I laghed even more. That last scene was so powerful. And why are kdrama MILs so evil?!!!!!! I don't think KT's mom is inherently evil like so many MIL's - I think she is stuck so tight in her world view that she think it is the only "right" one, and can't get out.

Or she is afraid to I agree with you and, I may be on my own with this but I think KT's mom is actually the most layered character of the bunch. Unlike most Kdrama parents who are simply grabbing at power or control, KT's mom is different to some degree.

Really, she's very similar to Jang Mi. KT's mom is a woman that is trying to conform to her society in order to make those around her happy. She masks her own feelings in order to accommodate those around her. She has no real identity of her own so she's wraps herself in the business of keeping up appearances because that's the only thing she can do. This is all very similar to what Jang Mi is doing by continuing the whole fake marriage. Sidenote: its really great that both sets of parents are all alive in this drama.

I've watched a ton of dramas and usually one parent is deceased. It really adds another layer to compare and contrast the couples' parents and their relationships to each. I really like how kt mom is methodically breaking down jang mi character.

I'm not condoning her actions but it is a clever way. If I was with someone thay constantly only looks out for other people view of me and doesn't show any emotions to my actions I would feel left alone as well. If people are saying se ha is like the mom then could u blame the dad for cheating. All we know is that he is but don't know exactly what drove him to thst point.

Once u forgive someone that cheats they keep cheating. If you r willing to put up with the other persons action than the only one at fault is yourself.

Hmmm I do agree with your point about the brilliant change in strategy of Ki Tae's mom. But I don't think it's right to blame her for her husband's infidelity. Nor is it right to blame Jang Mi for Hoondong's childish ways. These men did or are doing terrible things done entirely out of their own autonomy. Why blame the ladies?

I agree with Juliette. These men are adults, and at the end of the day should be able to take responsibility for themselves.

Again, why blame the ladies? I really like all of that about KT Oma. I agree that there is more than meets the eye. Let's assume that she is also very aware of how much her life sucks, and how correct JM has been in pointing it out. At the memorial service and at the mall. KT's mom cannot solely object to JM because of her socio-economic situation. After all, the pres wife likes the crazy girl as a part of the family.

KT's mom realized at the wine club that there may be some benefit to having JM around. I'd like to think that KT's mom's efforts in separating this lively happy person from her son is so JM doesn't end up in their stifled life.

SA, whom KT's cheating dad picked to help his selfish career, has been asking for this misery. So be it. She could also be thinking that JM is exactly what the Gong family needs if it wants to survive into future generations. Another SA leading them would bring them more suffering. A vibrant JM may help. Juliette-people cheat all the time but its not like most people cheat just to cheat. I disagree- I don't think KT's mother is acting as an antagonist for Jang Mi's benefit, so that she can protect her from joining their dysfunctional family.

I feel like she was touched by Jang Mi in some ways, like when she empathized with her after the typhoon incident. But still, she isn't a desirable daughter-in-law for her, from everything from her family background to her scandalous behavior and how she basically pales in comparison to Se-Ah, who's very desirable seeing as she has connections and a good family.

It'd be cute if Jang-Mi and the mother end up as close friends and allies later on, so hopefully the mother will finally explode at her husband and stop her manipulative ways. I also disagree with many people's opinions that Jang Mi is actually in love with KT at this point, and that she was the one to fall for him first. In dramas, it's usually made very obvious if the main character is in love.

And it's not made obvious that she is, at least not with KT. She's still smitten with Yeo-reum. I think she was saddened by KT's murmured confession that he just really, really wants to be alone when he was drunk, lying curled up the bed, because he just looked so lonely and it's the opposite of what she wants, but she understood it nonetheless. And she's grown to care about him, though not in a romantic sense yet, so she wants to protect his wish.

can find it?

I'm also wondering how she's not fired yet for ditching her job all the time, and a bit iffy how she ran out in the wedding dress- I mean yo, that costs thousands, probably, and I was just thinking, "What if you rip it? What if you spill something on it? But yeah, I get that it's a drama so they want the pretty shot of her running out in her wedding dress, and the fact that it'd be very uneventful and boring if she just simply ignored all of her mother-in-law's phone calls throughout the episode.

the talented

Plus, that wouldn't fit her character. You wouldn't think so by how this episode ended. Only making others happy according to her own "high" standards. I also saw a thread of the irresistible pull that 'keeping up appearances' has over us.

Before we know it, appearances suck us in and we start living lies to keep up what we've started. We may not actually care what other people think, but we still want to perform well in the roles we've chosen. I wonder if: KT's mom was simply working to conform JM to what they expect in a daughter-in-law, so her family can keep up appearances in their elite social circle.

Because that's exactly how she's had to live her life. While KT's dad was keeping up the appearances of being a loving and attentive husband when in front of others. Despite that when he's alone with his wife he's a self-centered jerk. JM's mom was desperately trying to keep up appearances in her hilarious attempts to make it seem that her family will fit into high society. And JM was trying to keep up appearances of being the dutiful daughter in law, even though she has no concrete plans of marrying KT.

So true to life. If we're not careful, don't we all find ourselves progressively conforming to patterns of expected behavior, before we think through whether the outcome of those patterns will be a healthy one. The only thing that came from that scene was kt hurt feelings from seeing her run away from him. I need more scenes of jus kt and jm. His criticism is harsh but she really needs to follow through with wat he says. True, but I think JM ran away from KT because after all she has been through that day he rocks up with Se-Ah, all buddy buddy after she had been so bad to them before.

I wouldn't be happy either. Where are my manners? Lollypip, thank you very kamsa for the great recap Friday, please come quickly I read the ending scene as Ki Tae saying "I'm ready to make this real" isn't 'go to you' cultural shorthand for a lover making a commitment? And the one thing that leapt to my mind was I think he just decided that he could coast into it and everything would be fine.

I can't wait to see the fallout from Jang Mi's mother who will correctly assume that Crazy Mom and Se Ah were trying to sabotage the wedding.

Go, angry Mom, go! Unleash your fury! I didn't read those as relieved tears at all but I can totally see it being a mix of the two. Shes upset that Gi-Tae didn't help her out or anything and was also part of the entire problem in the first place but also finally SOMEONE said something nice even if it's not the exact situation she wanted, and she just starts crying in frustration.

I like that the scene isn't concrete, I'm assuming the next episode will clear it up. I saw it this way too. Another source of frustration was that Se Ah implied that she and Ki Tae had slept together or at least are spending time together she picked up his phone, saying he was 'washing up. So Jang Mi must have felt incredibly betrayed. After all, wasn't she enduring the intrusive invasion of her personal life to spare him from getting stuck with Se Ah? I think you guys are forgetting a very important reason she didn't wait for ki tai and for the crying; when his ex answered his phone, she said he was in the shower; I am pretty sure jang mi misinterpreted that evenif she knows that it was unlikely they were together like that, she was still probably jealous and hurt for suffering for him while he was with the ex.

I think this is one of those dramas where you sit back and say "Wow, so this is also a way a Korean Drama can be made". I mean, don't get me wrong, there were some kdrama cliches in Marriage Not Dating but nothing was overbearing. In fact, I loved those cliches too. And it was an extremely refreshing romantic-comedy/ Jul 26,   Marriage Not Dating: Episode 7 by girlfriday. There are so many love geometries in this drama that it's a wonder how anyone remains friends. And yet, the unlikeliest of bromances emerges in this episode, because things weren't complicated enough for the heroine who's juggling an ex, a fake fiance, and a noona-killer who all work in the same building-she has to get them to play nice /5.

If you look again - you can see the hurt in her eyes when she saw Se Ah. I am not sure that she recognize it as jealousy seeing that her body, social status, and personal taste were being criticized by Ki Tae's Mom and her own Mom echoing her shortcoming due to her own insecurities and her Mom's attempt to fit in with the wealthy and educated.

But is it just me I loved Ki Tae's comment to wait and he would come to her buuuuuut why did he stand there It was as if just saying those words made him realize that he was speaking the desires of his heart. He has had several jealousy outings. How many dates have he blocked? The near accident trying to get to her in the hospital. Moving her to his private domain of security on an island of one. He is now lying to keep them apart I went and re-watched the tail end of the episode, and I think that the silent conversation went something like this:.

What is wrong with you? You weren't ever going to end this, were you? Did you think this was real? Eff you and your crazy-ass family! I have been wondering what it meant as well, although I do not have any cultural knowledge. I'll freely admit that I'm assuming, because I've seen something similar used in that context in other dramas. It makes sense to read it that way, and her reaction widened eyes as she realizes suddenly that KT had no intention of stopping the fake marriage bobsled to hell is appropriate for that interpretation, too.

Hiii lollypip I'm from India I have been reading your recaps Love your recaps. Thanks a lotttt!!!! This episode left me even more desperate for more episodes than last week!!! I loved this ending even if it certainly doesn't leave me feeling as giddy as the last episodes did. I think that this is such an important turning point for our leads though.

I also think it's important that Jang-mi just does whatever she wants to do, not what other people tell her so as painful as the ending is, it also manages to be very satisfying at the same time. I think what you mentioned about respect is very important and hopefully the next two episodes will focus more on the leads building that respect for each other and for themselves.

Go on, kids, get married and settle down in the seaside town! Let YR find work as a line cook, and live in a sweet little apartment! Let Ki Tae sort out his own issues! Not me - I actually dislike YR. He seems extremely shallow.

Part of that might be his acting, which I am not impressed with. To me, YR comes off as 'deliberately cool' - not putting himself out there too much in case he gets hurt.

He's not as expressive an actor as the guy playing Ki Tae, but I think it works. When I went back and rewatched eps, I did notice that in scenes with the three of them, Jang Mi's eyes are almost always following YR he is easy on the eyes, I must admitand her body language changes whenever YR comes over.

Ki Tae will have to put some serious effort into it if he intends to make that fake marriage real - starting with not insulting her. Given it's a Kdrama, the male lead will eventually sink my preferred ship, but I can dream. I went back to read some of the character synopses that were distributed. They all say that YR has an aversion to commitment which comes from being abandoned by his mom.

He had no intention of getting married, but he unexpectedly starts to fall for JM. Trust me, you are not the only one After this I NEVER want to see her in that family, no redemption is possible after the emotional abuse that everyone is complicit in - even her own mother! Han Yeo Reum deserves some serious apologies for waiting and standing by her thru this madness and he puts aside his own annoyance after being ditched to smile and feed her takeout - best boyfriend ever!

Gi Tae pales in comparison - last episode should have been the last straw with him to have it out with his mother but he takes his anger out on JangMi - No Way! I'm totally with you guys!!! I love Yeo-reum and I think he's exactly what Jang-mi needs right now. I think he's the perfect rebound for her: he's hot, sweet, talented and will ultimately be OK without her once they break up.

And who seems to as of now interest our heroine a hella lot more than the lead! As it is, I don't think that they would work out in the long run.

If anything, the funny scene with Yeo-reum running around Ki-tae's apartment doing exactly the same thing that Jang-mi did her first time there shows how similar they are if they're fear of abandonment didn't give it away. It was Yeo-reum that comforted her. She's been having a few horrible days of dealing with Ki-tae's mother and all Ki-tae, who should know better than anyone else how impossible it is to escape once the woman decides to control you, only offers criticisms and absenteeism.

It's Yeo-reum who steadily waits for her and offers support. I know that once Ki-tae changes his tune, I'll be happy when him and Jang-mi finally get together and not just for the all-you-can-take plastic surgery her mom will be able to enjoy but right now that boy does NOT deserve our girl.

Go, Yeo-reum! Ahhh exactly what I've been thinking! I know that eventually KT and JM will be together, and as long as the relationship dynamic changes and, as was said, it includes more respect. No, I don't think he's a forever soulmate, but he's certainly the right guy for her to pick at this point in the drama. KT, on the other hand, has been a jerk.

Marriage not dating eng sub ep 7

I believe he'll eventually redeem himself, but at the moment he totally does not NOT deserve JM and I'm glad that she's not feeling the love back at this point.

He's got to earn that! You're not alone but definitely less than I thought there'd be. I think you guys will have a field day next episode. As will we all, 4 way hijinks are going to ensue.

And a kiss maybe i hope not.

When Ki-tae speaks, I get the sense that he's saying exactly what he wants to say, but when Yeo-reum speaks sometimes not always though it feels like he's thinking to himself "what does this person want to hear?

Now this is interesting because this is exactly why Yeo-reum is the right choice for Jang-mi right now. He knows exactly what she wants to hear, but it also oddly makes him feel very surface-deep for some reason.

When Jang-mi and Ki-tae interact it feels like there's give and take there, like they're not afraid to say what they want to say. I think that Ki-tae simply needs to learn a little more about saying and doing what Jang-mi needs once in awhile, instead of just saying whats on his mind. If he can do that though, I'm rooting for him completely. I think that's why I can't understand, and therefore like, his character. There have been very few moments where I felt like "Aha, there's his true feelings flashing through".

I don't know if this is a failing of the actor, a failing of the show, or a deliberate choice by the show, but it's making me pretty frustrated. I understand the other characters not knowing his true feelings, but the audience is just as in the dark. Maybe soon he'll have a complete breakdown and reveal he is truly an infamous serial killer!!!

Muahahahaha Or you know, that he really loves JM or something Very well put. I think jm sees her dad in kt since his parents are outspoken to one another while kt family is hiding within themselves from being diacover.

I see yr as kt dad because he is all surface. While being harsh actually wants jangmi to come out for the better. Each meeting the have had there hasn't been any true conversations. With kt and jm they talk more about their deeper roots. I can't handle her with Yeo-reum much longer, so that last scene basically made me go fsjfkwoeifueoisfs.

I think i lost about 10 hair strands there. Its not like I don't like Yeo-rum as a character, yes he's a bit charming at times but i have a feeling that he's not just that into Jang-mi, its like what he said a few episodes back that he's intrigue as to why are those guys interested in her.

Its like he's just testing the waters with Jang-mi.
