Now I’m officially head over heels in love with this drama, too bad I can’t marathon it. There’re so many funny scenes in episode 2 that I can’t even point out which is the funniest, Jang Mi meeting Gi Tae’s family, his aunt stalking the lovebirds or Gi Tae’s embarrassing dance. My problem with funny things is that I cannot capture their appeal. I can’t stand dramas without humor, but I can’t convey that humor into words, all I can tell is this is a really really funny drama which will make you go from chuckling to LOL for the whole hour.
Ep 2 of Marriage, Not Dating makes it clear that Jang Mi’ biggest weakness and most endearing trait is her kindness. She’s kind to everyone to make that person and herself happy, and that characteristic seems to be her habit. Honestly, I think most of us who adapts to this cruel and heartless society a bit too well would question her kindness and immediately think she does it for love and recognition, just like Gi Tae’s misunderstanding. But Jang Mi’s saving her ex Hoon Dong the jerk just proves that she’s kind-hearted by nature. Admittedly, the moment she descends into the pool, I just want to yell at her “Why oh why? He totally deserves this. Leave him alone. Don’t lower your self-esteem with him!!!” For one second I thought her determination wavered and she wanted to come back with him. Then I realize she just does it out of sympathy, perhaps she just doesn’t want to witness the one she used to love fall into such an embarrassing situation (totally self-inflicted, that jerk!) Kindness is becoming so rare that Jang Mi’s sincerity turns special in the eyes of all the other love experts. If I were a man, I would definitely appreciate her, but this girl needs to toughen up sometimes and avoid getting used. Once again, I will never waste my time to criticize such an unchangeable jerk as Hoon Dong, so forget it. But I’m glad Jang Mi finally realizes that exacting revenge on her ex is pointless.
Talking about Gi Tae, at first, I thought he was a jerk because he was friend with Hoon Dong the jerk (wrong reasoning gosh), but judging from his behavior in ep 2, he’s probably just a guy who dates girls sometimes and doesn’t want to jump into marriage. Anyway, that makes him much more endearing 😀
When Jung Jin Woon goes with Han Groo and Sun Hwa goes with Yeon Woo Jin (gosh, don’t even remember the names of those second leads), my first thought is “Shit! Wrong pairing all the way” and then a sudden incident ties our two lovely leads together. AWESOME!
