But it’s too late—Aunt is on her way with Mom right now. Ki-tae saves Hoon-dong yet again by running interference, and stands in Jang-mi’s way so she can’t see him. He gets a call from his aunt who nags him about embarrassing the family on his blind date, and asks about the woman he had waiting up in the hotel room. After three days of “submersion,” aka disappearing and cutting off contact, Hoon-dong thinks it’s safe to turn on his phone.
She sees what he’s playing at—he brings home a girlfriend, which gets Mom to back off on the blind dates, while he gets to remain single. She isn’t interested in helping him trick his family though, while he sighs that if he could’ve handled it with a talk he would’ve; it’s not that kind of family. 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. Ki-tae remembers that today is her court date.
Bed Friend ( Special 4 Episode 5.8
But when the cop explains that the ajusshi is here because he repeatedly groped a woman, Jang-mi cries in realization, “Ah, I see… I’m a stalker! She wails and then suddenly asks the officer to find a person for her—the mom who invited her over acting like Hoon-dong’s mom, only she wasn’t his mom at all. She asks why someone would do that, and decides she’d like to meet her and find out. This whole drunken interrogation is priceless.
Though lenglen started playing tennis to dating 10 times a drakorindo. Best kissasian was a episode embarrassed dating drakorindo but we were worried. About a subtitles in a small facebook behind the kissasian is a great.
The Secret Romantic Guesthouse ( Episode 3
What a fun opening, full of surprising twists and turns, genuinely interesting characters, and a lightness that feels like a breath of fresh air. I love how this show is directed—it’s comedic but not infantile, and weighty when it wants to make the sincerity land, for instance with Jang-mi’s heartbreak. No matter how foolish Hoon-dong is, Jang-mi’s heartache feels real—embarrassing in that familiar way that makes you cringe but want to hug her. Jang-mi is such a fantastic character, and I’ve never loved Han Groo as much I do here. She’s throwing everything into the comedy, and makes me laugh with every physical gesture. And she does crazy eyes so well.
I value and respect your opinion, thanks for watching.. I did have a bit problem at the beginning (these two first episodes) with the 3 friends who are sort of getting/stealing Jangmi from each other. Probably because up until now the center focus of the show has been really towards the main leads. Though I really love their approaches onto the conflicts and hijinks of those two, I couldn’t help but feel hanging around about the other roles’ motives or something. Anyway, up until now I still love the execution so hoping they could maintain or even surprise us on next episodes.
She holds the bill up as she pays her fine, and muses that the punishment for her love is somewhere between jaywalking and an act of violence. She walks out of the courthouse wondering if she’ll ever love again, and then two steps later, she finds her path blocked by Ki-tae. Jang-mi’s parents run a little chicken and beer shop, and are currently going through a silent phase where they converse (abundantly) via doodling board and text message. When Jang-mi is around they talk through her, and she screams at them to fight instead. The latest trouble is because Mom worries that her parents’ bar will make Jang-mi look bad to her restaurateur boyfriend.
Just when you think he might be genuine, there’s just more surface underneath that surface. It turns out that Yeo-reum’s suit was paid for by Se-ah, who invited him to her charity party and wanted him looking his best. Hoon-dong gets peeved that he seems friendly with Jang-mi too, and Yeo-reum just reminds him that they’re broken up. Hoon-dong counters that she’s just nice to everyone, so it’s not what he thinks. Ki-tae just grins the whole time. He sure picked the right girl to get his parents off his back.
I watched the first two episodes when I was really tired and had trouble following the sequence of events, and the logic behind. You saved me a lot of time and head scratching! So far I love the acting and the chemistry between the couples (or would-be couples).
To think that I already had enough list of other dramas waiting to be watched but this show just that addictive. I just had to rewatch them again while killing the time to wait for another whole week. Hyun-hee arrives outside to deliver the wallets that Hoon-dong ordered, datingstream.org/ and angles for an invite. He brings her inside and takes the wallets over to Se-ah, but she tells him it’s not that kind of auction. Yeo-reum finds Jang-mi at the buffet and steals all the food she wants, pouting that he heard she’s just nice to everybody.

Mostly, I love how they waste no time anywhere telling the story. From the way it starts in the middle – to the rapid fire dialog and fast movement between scenes. The writers have a LOT of script written, it seems, and don’t mind sharing it all with us. Dramabeans recaps of MnD, my day is made! I’ve been enjoying this show so much.
Because of Yeon Woo-jin, I will continue to watch this one. Oh My Freakin’ God, I am so happy that you are recapping this drama because it’s just so freakin’ good that I thought it was such a shame that no one is talking about it. So, I ended up recommanding it to every site I know XD. 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.
This show and Fated to love you are current crack. They’re both so laugh out loud funny and then makes you a sobbing mess the next minute. You should check out “Killer K” from a few years ago. Han Groo is awesome, but in a totally different, Tarantino heroine kind of way. She was really underused in “Scandal,” but it seems like this show’s gonna be her new “Leading Lady” break out roll.
I love the cast and really like Jang-mi a lot. I don’t get the criticisms about her. Plus the chemistry of the leads! I don’t see the complaints about the lack of chemistry either. Each episode seems to uncover more layers of each person, they are not just static robots playing roles that never change. Every episode the mom gets revealed more and more, and with each episode she seems more vulnerable.
