Ki-Tae’s mom/Baek Mi-Nyeo…well, Kim Hae-Sook certainly doesn’t have to worry about typecasting. The news about this show failed to impress me even though I do like both leads…’meh, another contract marriage story.’ Was I wrong…great characters and directing, broken tropes everywhere. My week starts with High School King, then Fated to Love You, and ends with Marriage Not Dating. I love the cast and really like Jang-mi a lot. I don’t see the complaints about the lack of chemistry either. Even in ep5 you keep thinking they are NOT really going go there are they?

Marriage Not Dating Episode 8

I love the pattern of the episodes, where they begin with an incident, and then backtrack to show us how they got there. Not to mention, it ensures that something dramatic has to happen each episode, which is fun. So funny and I love the cast.Every episode gets sillier and more hilarious. I kept checking Dramabeans several times a day hoping this would get recapped. I’d even resorted to leaving notes in other threads “hinting” if this could be recapped.

She doesn’t see what’s wrong with wanting to be loved, and tells him to be nicer to his mother, who clearly wants his love. She says that as soon as she gets her revenge, she’s done with him, because she dislikes everything about his attitude. He gripes that every time she gets a little liquor in her she cuts down to banmal, and vows not to drink with her again. He drops her off at home and invites her to a charity auction party on the weekend, solely for the purposes of making their relationship public so that Mom buys that it’s real.


I’ve been meaning to check out Hope For Dating for awhile so now that I know the writer is the same person, I’m definitely going to move it up on my to watch list. And The Angel of Death Comes In Purple High Heels is just a fantastic title which has definitely peeked my interest. To think that I already had enough list of other dramas waiting to be watched but this show just that addictive.

In the early 4th century, ethnic Georgians officially adopted Christianity, which contributed to the spiritual and political unification of the early Georgian states. In the Middle Ages, the unified Kingdom of Georgia emerged and reached its Golden Age during the reign of King David IV and Queen Tamar in the 12th and early 13th centuries. Thereafter, the kingdom declined and eventually disintegrated under the hegemony of various regional powers, including the Mongols, the Turks, and various dynasties of Persia.

Middle Ages up to early modern period

Thankfully for us, Ki-tae’s family is so nuts that his aunt is currently following them, so they have to go on a date to keep up appearances. Over dinner and wine, Ki-tae notices how Jang-mi is constantly going out of her way to help others and muses that she lives for approval and probably gets used often. He calls it maintaining her fishpond, which Jang-mi points out is used to refer to dating tactics (keeping everyone on the hook and playing the field). He says it’s the same principle in basic human interaction, and she should take a page out of Mom’s playbook. He assures her that Mom will never approve—this is just her way of working people to get exactly what she wants. She remains polite but detached, and waits for the other person to get exhausted and give up, never once getting blood on her own hands, and forever remaining the good guy.

Soldiers who fought for the subtitles a little. Mutual respect and understanding for one another in terms of artwork facebook dating episode and what we wanted when we created.

Yeo-reum already knows, hence the new suit paid for by Se-ah, while Ki-tae has to be forcibly pushed onto the stage to do his part, yunno, for charity. Se-ah doesn’t look all that interested in having Hoon-dong participate, but he volunteers. Ki-tae follows her out of the club and says he’ll help her get revenge—he’ll make it so that Hoon-dong falls in love with her, so she can kick him to the curb. She stops and wonders if she can become cool and detached like other people, and he promises that if she follows his lead, she can. She’s on her way to meet her co-worker Hyun-hee for sympathy makgulli, but Ki-tae follows her all the way there and smoothly introduces himself as Jang-mi’s friend and gets invited along. It’s pretty funny how they decide to go clubbing ’cause that’ll make her feel better, even though she’s standing right there shouting that it won’t.

Marriage Not Dating is the newest Friday-Saturday offering from tvN, and I’ve been enjoying it immensely for its witty banter, laugh-out-loud humor, and its refreshing take on romance. Not to mention that there’s a hilarious contract relationship in the mix, and some fantastically committed comedic performances from Han Groo and Yeon Woo-jin. I was planning to just weigh in on the show once in a while when I had the time, but LollyPip has graciously offered to tag-team the recaps with me, so that tipped the scales.

He turns every question the woman asks into a barb back at her for only being interested in money, all while negotiating (via text) the terms of whether or not he’s going to help Hoon-dong get out of his mess. He’s a new tenant in Hoon-dong’s commercial building (or really, his mother’s building), and Hoon-dong finally agrees to give his clinic free rent for three years. He starts to sweat bullets, and she lays down obvious hints about how she wants to be together all the time. Her words flash across the screen in happy pastel colors, only to be heard by Hoon-dong like a slo-mo horror death-knell. He’s scared witless, and scans the room for the nearest exit.

Sometime later, Ki-tae relaxes with a bath and thinks back to Jang-mi’s moments of heartbreak, calling her dumb for going there and having to hear it for herself. In flashback we see that when she fell asleep at the precinct, he lied and said he wasn’t a victim of the attack, and asks for the charge to be taken care of with a fine. But the cop says Hoon-dong’s mom wants her charged with stalking, so it’ll have to go to court.

After three days of “submersion,” aka disappearing and cutting off contact, Hoon-dong thinks it’s safe to turn on his phone. But as soon as he does, it rings again, and he finds over 300 calls from Jang-mi. Now that my recap slate has freed up, I can finally turn my attention to something new.

And her spunkiness makes her loveable. Already finished the first 4 episodes and the chemistry between Gi Tae and Jang Mi is just sizzling hot. And Yeo Reum just has this winsome smile that makes you melt. I can’t wait for Gi Tae to get jealous of the budding romance between Jang Mi and Yeo Reum. It’s nice to watch a drama that carries you along on a journey that feels purposeful and assured, and even better when you can feel yourself being surprised by the wit in a story that on paper sounds very obvious.
