Marry Me, Mary Episodes 1-2

Unexpected meet ups… contract marriages… A bubbly, optimistic but deep in debt lead heroine and a burgeoning love triangle added unto the fray… This drama is seriously a cliche of all things that Kdramas are meant to be…

…And i deliciously lapped up every single second of it…

Not that the story is so earth shatteringly good or different in any way that it completely rocked my socks off but mainly because it was definitely entertaining and the chemistry between Jang Geun Seuk and Moon Geun Young is off the charts that you can’t help but smile whenever they’re together on screen… 

(I swear they make my heart go doki doki everytime they touch or smile at each other and that ought to count for something considering that i started to feel this way when i’ve just seen about 20 mins of them with each other…)

Marry Me Mary is the story of Mae-Ri (Moon Geun Young) , a boho looking, drama loving chick with a seemingly optimistic personality, despite the fact that their life is hard up primarily because her father is running away from creditors and the brunt of which she takes the most of…

While on a night out with friends, she accidentally rans over Mu Gyul (Jang Geun Seuk), an amateur rock star who marches to the beat of his own drum, drinks like a sailor and who is as down on his luck as she is and what follows next is a night of drunkenness that ended up with the two of them living together shortly, mainly because Mu Gyul has nowhere else to go and Mae Ri has no choice because she owes him…

However, that is only the tip of the iceberg as more hijinks ensue after this fated meeting…

Namely, Mae Ri’s dad wanting to marry Mae Ri off to the son of his rich neighborhood friend named Jung In (Kim Jae Wook), notably with his father taking a decided interest in Mae Ri largely because she looks so much like the girl in the photo that he carries around with him, whom at this point i can only presume is either his wife or Mae Ri’s own mother…

Now… Jung In is as cool as a cucumber… A person who agrees mostly to what his father wants as a way to avoid arguments that oftentimes he comes across as being cold and emotionless…

He’s blunt, masks his sarcasm underneath a polite veneer and is every inch a yes man to his fathers wishes… Which brings us back to the fact why he seemed to be a willing participant to this riiiiiiidiculous scheme that his father and Mae Ri’s father (geniuses that they are) have come up with together…

Mae Ri on the other hand is an altogether different story…

She finds the idea of being married off preposterous and not wanting to be trapped in this predicament that her father is pushing her into, she sought the help of Mu Gyul to pose as her fake husband to somehow alleviate the pressure and hopefully get her father off her case…

Having done that (which was no easy feat) Mae Ri thought that she would be scot free but unknown to her, her father had already registered her marriage to Jung In despite the fact that they’ve never even had a formal meeting…

Thus, Mae Ri had no choice but to give in and there began her 100 days of torment as her father draws up a schedule where she’d spend days being shuttled back and forth between Jung In and Mu Gyul as she try to decide who among them will win her heart in the end and whom she’d stay married to once the 100 days is over…

Sounds like a rehash of several kdramas that we’ve seen previously? ummm… yes…

Sounds like a kdrama that’s going to be good, quirky, spazzworthy, rollercoaster ride kind of fun?

DEFINITELY A BIG RESOUNDING YES…

Frankly speaking when i first learnt of this project, i was not really that excited to see it mainly because i can’t seem to make out where the story is supposed to be heading judging from initial media and press releases… (because let’s be honest, who the hell here understood what the story is judging from those trailers? And the synopsis? That she’s supposed to be contracted to marriage with two guys? It seriously boggled my mind that i checked to see if this was Inception…)

However, seeing MMM in all of it’s glory has changed my mind big time…

I have never been as enamored of a pairing at first sight ever since Binnie and Sun Ah in My Name is Kim Sam Soon and coming from me that is a pretty big compliment for Jang Geun Seuk and Moon Geun Young, as i shipped the pairing mentioned formerly like it was nobodys business that they were really such a tough act to follow…

To say that i am a converted fan is an understatement…

I am now waiting for this weeks episode with bated breath moreso now that Jung In and Mae Ri have finally met up and began to know each other as well…

I can’t wait for more cliches coming from this drama such as the hand grabs and the jealous stares and the stalking, because honestly… isn’t that the stuff that all kdramas are made of that make it such delicious, sinful fun and which makes us like addicts because it’s something that we just can’t get enough of?

So i say bring on the cliche… If it is going to be as enjoyable and yes, as merry as these first two episodes, then i say i wouldn’t mind seeing it again and again and then maybe some more…
