Posted on
Title: 매리는 외박중 ( Also known as: Marry Me, Mary! )
Genre: Romance, comedy
Episodes: 16
Broadcast network: KBS2
Broadcast period: 2010-Nov-08 to 2010-Dec-28

This is my personal view of the drama so please note that this review might be subjective. Beware of spoilers!

The reason of watching: I saw the parts of it in youtube it looks interesting. The other reason is because of Jang Geun Seuk (I’ve watched You’re Beautiful a.k.a미남이시네요) and Moon Geun Young (I saw her played in My Little Bride a.k.a 어린 신부).

Review: This drama is light and entertaining. The storyline flows smoothly in every episode. This drama keeps us entertained in each episode with funniness and the drama. However, I did not find many ups and downs of emotions in the beginning until the middle of the drama.

As it is a real drama (not a fantasy one but still a fiction) I can see how real life is led by the characters. This drama is about the working lifestyle, not high school type of life. I got the drunken culture, the entertainment culture (clubbing, drama business, etc) and the everyday life.

It’s a typical Korean drama where there is 2 boys loving a poor girl. Thus you already sort of guess where the story will go. This is the downside of this drama. The ending is also not quite an ending, because there is no final cut like marriage or death or relationship binding kind of thing (As I wanted to). But they end it with what happens in the future.

OST in this drama is also quite nice to listen to (for me). 🙂

The most memorable part:

1. The very climax part when Kang Moo Kyul confessed publicly. (SPOILER ALERT!) It was a kind of handsome act (well, I guess it is very awesome) when Moo Kyul was being kidnapped just before the showcase that Jung In prepared (Moo Kyul works for Jung In). On the way of his journey to the showcase he was kidnapped by Jung In’s father after Mae Ri’s father called Jung In’s father. Mae Ri saw Moo Kyul was kidnapped and tried to stop it by jumping on a police car and chased the kidnappers. Moo Kyul as his hands was injured while saving MaeRi the night before tried to fight the kidnappers and finally jumped out the car. On the other hand, Jung In and the crew were all panicked because Moo Kyul is one of the stars of the showcase he held. Jung In tried to buy time but the crowds are getting louder and asking Moo Kyul to come up. Just that time when everyone was desperate, Moo Kyul came with Mae Ri and walked through the crowds. The crowds cheered. Moo Kyul went up to the stage and while panting, he confessed, he said I love you Merry Christmas! (Merry Christmas is the nickname he called MaeRi). Lastly, don’t forget the fireworks!

2. The part when Jung In and Moo Kyul tries to make each other jealous with their own relationship with Mae Ri. Oh gosh! This part is very hilarious. Must watch!

3. Everytime Moo Kyul laughed at Mae Ri’s father. The similarity between the father and the daughter always cracks Moo Kyul, and how he put on a straight face when Mae Ri’s father scolded him afterward.

Ending: I don’t really like the ending…….. (just because it was not like what I expected to be, sorry)

Rating: 3.5 out of 5
