They stay true to themselves as the show manages to tie up all the loose ends nicely, leaving me feeling like everyone gets the ending they deserve. Ki-tae and Jang-mi stand in their wedding finery, at an altar under a stormy sky, both of them looking angry and hurt. Ki-tae turns and walks away, leaving Jang-mi alone at the altar. While they talk, Ki-tae accidentally finds the envelope of postcards from Dad and swipes them. Ki-tae suggests they go see her father, since they now have his address. Finally he pulls over at a rest stop also against her wishes and orders lunch, saying he needs energy to endure her while she takes her upset out on him.
Jang-mi tells Ki-tae he looked like a wet rat the first time she saw him from his date that threw water on himbut agrees that he looked so sexy that she threw the juice on him later just to see him all wet and sexy again. They reminisce over all the key points of their relationship, teasing and joking adorably.
Jang-mi says she likes the small tub, and they canoodle as she says in voiceover that at that point, they still trusted each other. Jang-mi argues that the forecast predicted it would clear up, and the bride gets her way so the umbrellas come down.
Yeo-reum approaches them and grabs Ki-tae in a bear-hug when Ki-tae pouts that he only greeted Jang-mi. Yeo-reum escorts Jang-mi to her waiting room, and Ki-tae overhears him say something about wiring money and gets suspicious. Se-ah comes to congratulate Jang-mi, who jokes that her mother loves her new breast but her dad loves it more, hee.
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. "Marriage, Not Dating" is a South Korean drama series directed by Song Hyun Sook. Marriage Over Love, Marriage Without Dating, Marriage Without Love Volunteer Team /10(K). Other name: ?? ?? ?? / Gyeolhoneul Gidaehae / Not Dating Marriage / Anticipate Marriage / Marriage Without Love / Marriage Without Dating Description: Wealthy plastic surgeon Gong Ki Tae is a successful and happy bachelor who does not want to find himself a wife. He believes that his life is perfectly planned, and being single is the only option he accept. 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/
Ki-tae greets the wedding guests and gets glomped by an overly-enthusiastic Hoon-dong, cute where he and his mother are grilled by the female family members over her divorce and his not inviting his father. Dad shows up and Mom admits to having invited him, but Hyun-hee comes to get Ki-tae before he can address any of this. They and every single wedding guest look to where Se-ah is sitting, looking very cuddly with the 3D technology sales rep on her arm. All of the wedding guests run for cover, leaving Ki-tae and Jang-mi to stand in the rain at the altar all alone.
Jang-mi says in voiceover that in life, the worst things happen during the best times, but you can get through life because the best things also come with the worst.
Soaked and deserted by family and friends, Ki-tae and Jang-mi just look at each other and begin to laugh. They exchange wedding rings in the pouring rain, as Jang-mi thinks how marriage involves not just them, but both of their families.
There will be lots of family issues, but marriage is worth it to be together. 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.
Instead of giving Jang-mi personal satisfaction, this just led to her being dismissed and overlooked by her friends and family. But I believe that even though he did a lot of growing, Ki-tae still stayed essentially himself through the course of the show he simply learned how to turn his protective instincts to the people he loves rather than keep it all for himself. But the best thing about this entire show has always been the focus on family. None of us live in a vacuum and, good or bad, our families shape and define who we are.
Jang-mi and Ki-tae were dysfunctional because their families were dysfunctional - but rather than fighting the future in-laws for control like so many drama characters, they actually drew those families in and worked on healing them. But they learned how to love and accept one another in spite of that, and maybe even because of that.
The best dramas are ones that not only make you laugh and root for the characters, but make you feel something special, and I think I can confidently say that this show did that and did it well. It is in some ways the least romantic and most realistic of depictions since we have characters who run the gamut from happily wed, happily divorced, to some whose marriages resemble war buddies who are in it till the end because no one else would know their pain.
This series is a standout among rom-coms for its fresh take on contemporary romance, its flawed characters who were allowed to remain flawed, and the lovely sense of humor that the writer and director shared-there was a cohesion in the writing and directing that was palpable, in that we were made to feel all of the right beats in all the right ways, which is actually rare. I loved the setup, but it started to drive me nuts the way we felt trapped there.
The series was at its best early on, when the humor crackled and the couple was forced to act loving on the surface while antagonism brewed underneath. But once they started using it to misrepresent scenes altogether with footage that was a direct lie, it stopped being clever and felt manipulative; they lost meaning when I could only start counting them as fantasy sequences.
At least the finale went out on the kind of cold open I had loved early on. Marriage Not Dating was a relative success for tvN it reached a high of 4.
I love watching actors grow role by role, and these two had such a fantastically timed growth spurt in the same drama opposite one another. It underscored that the secondary loveline in the drama-between Jang-mi and her future mother-in-law-was something that changed Mom as a daughter-in-law as well. I loved that the familial thread ran through the show from beginning to end, and that despite the romance being the hook, family is what we end on.
Your email address will not be published. I will miss this drama a lot. Can't believe it's over. Watch her in 'Warm Words'. She's the only reason i keep watching the show. Park Seo-joon. While I found the show entertaining. I didn't actually like a single one of the characters, and especially Gong Gi Tae.
In that last episode his attempts to cheer her up or whatever it was he was doing when trying to force to her to eat and joke around with him and talk about marriage when she's trying to find her father to tell him her mother has cancer were appalling! And that thing with the letter - what gives him the right to open her mother's private letter, read the contents, steal it, and then refuse to let her daughter see it?
I would have ripped him a new one right there. I will say the product placement for the LG portable photo printer in the last episode totally got me. I immediately looked it up and may still buy it I bought LG G3 after watching this drama when I saw the printer. If I found out my mother had cancer, I'd love to have Gong Ki-tae there doing all those things for me : I mean, making sure I eat, holding my hand, and then staying with my father and comforting him all night?
I couldn't ask for anything more. Mostly because all that those things really show is that he's trying, that he's worried for me and that in itself is something lovely even if he doesn't know exactly how to convey it perfectly. Although, I personally think him going out of his way to mend the relationship between Jang-mi's parents is a pretty wonderful way to convey how much he cares for them, but that's just me :. I agree. The fact that he did all those things is just his way of showing love and concern to the ones he care for.
It may not be super romantic, but that just makes him, him. Thank you DB for the recaps. I appreciated it so much. This one of the less-buzzed drama when it began but ended with a bang.
I have to agree that the second leads with the exception of Hoon Dong, he's such dork didn't contribute as much as to the awesomeness of this series but the families made up for them esp GT's mom.
Yay, the three women being together forget dad, girl power FTW. And don't make me start with the wedding. If it ended with a simple wedding, it's not MND. The kiss at the end perfectly wraps up their story and now that's a kiss.
I agree that the big weakness in this show were the second leads, Se Ah and YR. Neither one of these characters were written particularly well - their motives were fuzzy, and they hanged allegiances and directions without notice or reason.
But the acting was also very poor - both characters were played by idols, with little acting experience, and it showed.
Both of them were more concerned with looking good than showing some real emotion, and neither of them were able to give any unspoken clues about their character. I got so sick of their plastic, enigmatic smiles. I understood the rest of the characters, I felt like they were real people, and then there was Ken and Barbie.
Thanks for the recaps guys! I still have to catch up on the drama, but I did read all the recaps. This drama was very fresh and funny. This adds onto my list of most fave dramas. Gonna watch out for the leads from now on, they were fun to watch. Best ever romcom! Was consistent from start to finish. Watching this became a bonding time with my wife who kept on nagging me to check whether the latest episode was already out.
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. It was just plain heartwarming, and hilarious and insightful towards the end.
Congratulations to all the production staff and the cast. Will look forward to another drama by the same actors. Incidentally, am not Korean. But I am beginning to love Korean culture and actors. Have watched tons of Korean dramas. Thank you as well to all who do the subs. Looking forward to visit Korea with my wife one day.
MND was a good drama. I started off loving it but midway it lost its addictiveness to me and it wasn't as funny as it used to be. They took too long to have the OTP start dating and the angst and the two leads going around in circles aggravated me to no end. In spite of all of this I still liked this drama and when the leads did get together they were magic on screen. They have such wonderful chemistry, I hope they are able to reunite in another drama or movie someday.
The ending left me wanting more, idk I just didn't like the ending that much even though that kiss was amazing. They kept mentioning a plot twist so much that I thought it was going to be something epic, but all it was was whats her name getting knocked up by that one doctor guy. That was a let down. However, I loved that Gi Tae's mom found her happiness in the end. Her husband's family screwed her up so badly that it's understandable why she acts the way she does.
Overall I enjoyed this drama even if some of my love for it at the beginning wore off towards the end. It's still one of the best rom-coms of for me and I will put it on my repeat list for rainy days.
Even though I love this show which has ne comparing it to coffee prince. I understand girlfriend take on the cold scene in the beginning. With everything else showing now. I can't even get through half the episodes without folding it in but I have been waiting and even watching without subs since I was so anxious for this show.
Probably the best thing for this ending was that not everyone got redeems in some unreasonable way. Thank you Lollypip and girlfriday for the great and heartfelt recaps. Love this series so much but wished we had more time to just savor the OST relationship for a little longer. As well as seeing Ki-tae's dad suffer a whole lot more.
And by the way, what with Jang-Mi's mom, yikes!! What a whiny self centered woman! 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. I didn't think he had it in him. Really really. 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.
The actors did a fabulous job with these roles and they've definitely put those two on the map for me. And because I didn't get to comment on it in the last recap, I still love, love, LOVE the moment between Kitae and his mother on the phone and the ones here between KiTae's mom, aunt and halmoni.
I love how much this show emphasised the importance of family. 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.
I was waiting for that. 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. I also loved the realism in their decision to get married. They know firsthand just how badly marriages can go but even so, they're still willing to give it a try and try their best to love and support each other despite whatever twists life may throw at them.
I also loved the cleverness in the writing, the crazy sound effects, the awesome ost and the cute effects on screen. 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 episode 1. This drama made me laugh, even cry a little and made me care for many of the characters.
Ki-tae and Jang-mi are so good and so cute together, and I only can agree, the family ct in this drama is one of its strongest angles. Maybe is not a perfect drama but the crazy second lead and the flaws here and there never made me abandon it, because I was so in love with the good stuff that I could pass through that.
I still can't believe that this drama is over. I'm so going to miss it. Been playing the OSTs over and over again. It's my first time seeing Han Groo act and I'm even surprised because she's so young! Her acting is on point and she's so good at comedy.
Yeon Woo Jin's characters are so scary and he was a killer in Arang but the first time I saw him was in Ojakgyo Brothers and from then on, I knew he'd do well in a rom com. I admit that this drama kinda bored me halfway through it and I actually stopped watching. I had to catch up on 4 episodes at once. It's the 2nd leads. I love Sunhwa and Jinwoon but omg their characters are so annoying.
Then the bestfriend was just annoying too. Still, I enjoyed the drama and it was a fun watch among all the dramas airing now. Gi Tae's "I know that there's no such thing as love that last forever. Despite that, I want to try loving you forever. T like seriously, no kidding. Usually, I get bored half way through and find myself FF all the annoying and useless bits. But I thoroughly enjoyed each and every episode of this one! I mean, they are pretty annoying at times.
But somehow I get the satisfaction of seeing the leads jealous of seeing one another with their own respective cockblocker hahaha. If we were to compare, there are definitely many more worse second leads out there. The one thing I truly appreciate about the show is how it works so well to build up relationships so realistically, whether it is between a mother and son, mother and daughter-in-law, husband and wife etc.
The last episode wrapped up things pretty nicely.
[Eng sub] Marriage without dating ep 1 (Ki tae & Jang Mi cut) 2/3
Loved the scene between grandma, aunt and mom. How cute! Crying and hugging each other, leaving cheating dad gobsmacked whilst they celebrate living together hahaha. Seriously, those two are amazing. Yeon Woo Jin is so damn charming in the show, so much so that I wanna get a Ki-tae myself.
A girl can dream. Han Groo did a great job as Jang-mi too. Those crazy eyes! Her movements are always so dramatic yet still somewhat natural at the same time. Looking forward to see her future projects for sure. This is the best drama I have watched by far! Can't wait for the drama that is supposed to replace it too! Thank you for recaps! And thank you dramagods for such a zippy and hilarious rom-com.
Oh, I must also thank whoever did the sound effects in this show.
Gaaah, is it over already?! I am super glad however, that Gi Tae's mom was able to get the treatment she deserved all these years, and that Gi Tae's Dad didn't get a free for all happy ending just because he was the main character's father.
Aug 18, 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. Because when your girlfriend's ex Continue reading "Marriage Not Dating: /5.
Same with Jang Mi's parents, I kind of wanted them to have a chance to lay down all their grievances especially Jang Mi's mom because I feel as though the reunion will be temporarily. Anyhoo, that's some of my thoughts. All in all, a great show, I hope that tvN continues to produce awesome shows like this :.
Such a satisfying ending to a solid drama. I have to admit the earlier episodes were my favourite, it went flat in the middle for me but the ending was done nicely.
I cried when the three ladies cried when grandma finally let go of her daughter in law and cried again when mum offered to live with the other 2 ladies and left dad to go eat crap for all they cared. Sooo Good.
And yay for a show that uses more than the main leads in an effective way. I still wouldn't say all characters were likable or well-developed and used as in my other favorite show of the season, High School King of Savvy. I liked the portrayal of the leads and their families best here - including grandma, aunt, even sleazy dad and his mistress. Hoon-dong was funny once you get past the first few episodes where he was quite repulsive - and he did get his comeuppance in the shape of his wife insert evil grin here.
Se-ah and Yeo-rum I cared for even less except for during the beach escapade. I thought at that point they might have an interesting friendship between all of them but after that unfortunately things went back to square one.
It might be the writing, the acting or a combination of both but they have not added anything aside from being plot devices. Putting that weakness aside there are many things I loved about the show. Ki-tae's silent reconciliation with his mom over the phone was awesome. Loved that he understood her value too late and there was no turning back.
Marriage not dating jang mi
The couple who seemed like the perfect family ended up divorcing while the ones who were always fighting ended up together because they actually loved each other in their own crazy way. It was short, cute and touching.
Aw, I loved Missing You. I just watched it last week. The story surprised me with how lovely it turned out to be despite it's shortness and Yeon Woo-jin is wonderful in it.
Marriage, Not Dating
What a fitting end to a wonderful, hilarious, and heartfelt show. It had it's missteps here and there, but, all in all, it did everything I wanted it to and then some. As of now, it's my favorite rom-com of Any drama that puts a smile on your face and makes your heart feel full just thinking about it is an amazing drama in my book.
I adore Yeon Woo-jin and Han Groo so much and this was the perfect drama to showcase just how far they've come in just a few years time. I'm so attached to them and their characters that it's actually hard to see them separate, but I'm glad that it was them that got to be each other's partner in their first leading roles because they really play off each other so fantastically.
I can't wait to see where they go from here! And I loooooooved it. So much. What a perfect wedding hahaha! I do have to agree with Jang-mi the Yeon Woo-jin looks very sexy all wet in fact, I noticed that in the very first episode too, lol and theres something so hot about the way he wipes his face before grabbing her for a kiss. And if that wasn't enough, the way he smiled at her before going in for more!
But what I loved most was the way he proposed! There's no way of knowing what obstacles and rough times they'll have to go through, so it's lovely the way he declared that despite that, he has faith that the good times with her will make what ever roadblocks they face in the future worth it. And then the end just drove in that idea that even if they're making a scene at their own wedding, at least they're facing the issues they face head on and get back to smiling and laughing in no time :.
Honestly, I usually write so much more and I feel like there's a lot more I want to say, but I'm actually in the middle of rewatching the drama haha, and writing about is making me want to return to watching it LOL.
Perhaps, I'll return later and write more :. Such a big fan of both leads and it was so refreshing to see a mother-in-law who was not pure evil just to supply a drama with a stock villain.
Very rarely do I love a series all the way through but this definitely ranks up there as a show that's perfect to binge-watch on a rainy day. It's too bad that the guests did not get to hear their vows, but one of the sweetest parts about this episode is that the audience got to hear those vows during the second proposal when Ki Tae promised to do his best to love her forever and Jang Mi promised to trust him.
Their affection for each other is real and palpable and not just for show. Maybe cos i have sons. Same here. I cried, then ran to the kitchen to make my sons' favorite chicken dish Cutting this into two since my comment is too long! Sigh, the episode I hate commenting on most is the last. Because it just means I gotta accept that the end is here.
But oh well I loved this show; I didn't for a moment think it lowered its level and even if I started seeing it late, I totally feel the withdrawals. This last episode is my favourite I think, mostly because the family ties are so well addressed rather than sugar coated. I loved that Jang-mi's parents aren't suddenly romantic and that Ki-tae's mom decided to live with the women who's been by her side through it all. I just see it happening in real life to these characters who seem so real and alive themselves.

Everyone felt organic rather than puppets controlled by a master. I really started hating Se-ah somewhere in the middle, but I'm glad she was redeemed quickly. While I know a majority of you guys felt her character changed too abruptly, I think her main personality remained the same. She was still controlling but maybe focused on another target - first it was to get Ki-tae back, then it was to make Ki-tae's life perfect. I'm glad she got her happy ending even if I really expected the father of the child to be Yeo-rim.
As for Yeo-rim, I was really sad he left the restaurant because I felt his bond with both Jang-mi and Ki-tae was way more powerful than some temporary jealousy. But in a drama that focuses on characters being realistic, its good that he's moving on because eventually things happen, people change as well as circumstances. I also really loved the portrayal of friendship and loyalty here. It's actually very understated and sometimes ignored with many other things happening, but it's one of my favourite cts.
They all looked out for each other, were there when the other person needed a shoulder. Everyone has a different connection and they aren't bonded as a group but more so individually. It's just so awesome. And finally Ki-tae and Jang-mi. I feel like I've said everything I wanted to about how great they are together and as individuals.
But I can probably go on forever. Instead, I'll just say the reason I love them so much is because Yeon Woo-jin and Han Groo are just so good at portraying them. Their chemistry was intense yet warm, blazing yet comfortable, easy yet charming. Both are ridiculously talented and I expect great things from them in the future. I hope they get a chance to be main leads in network channels and take on bigger challenges. Definitely the breakout stars of the year for me.
I've never seen them in anything before and I'm just so mighty impressed. I can probably carry on, but I'll stop lol. I love this show and I hope that those who haven't seen it yet will give it a try. I'll miss it, but endings like these make me feel like they all exist in the world I live, just that maybe I won't get to see them onscreen anymore. That makes me feel better actually, which in turn makes me feel delusional LOL.
Han Groo is awesome! TvN seems to really like wedding scenes in their dramas this year. They seemed so mature in this drama. Jin Woon needs to work on his acting. He needs to loosen up and act more natural. There is nothing more intimidating than a flock of meddling ahjummas.
I can't help but wonder how it feels for Yeon Woo-jin and Han Groo to go from having so much skinship with one another while shooting the drama and, as we know, the real time far exceeds the reel time to none presumably after the drama wrapped. Their pheremones must feel confused! I'm excited for both of the leads and enjoyed them each immensely in this, but I've got to give extra props to Han Groo for being such a natural at the physical comedy.
Anyway, they made a delightful OTP that I shall remember fondly for a long time. I super loved that Mom, Grandma, and Aunt were equally thrilled about staying together and giving Dirtbag the boot. Especially in the context of Korean family values. I would've liked to have seen Jang Mi and Ki Tae's Mom enjoying a newfound bond with one another on this ep. Loved the series. Marathoned it in 2 days.
Always wanted to check it out coz the first episode recap sounds really good and am glad I get to marathon it instead. Thanks for the recaps.
