[Kdrama] ‘Marry Him If You Dare’ episode 1-4 ~ opinion ~

Compared with the other currently airing dramas, ‘Marry him if you dare’ has really low ratings, however I normally don’t judge a drama by its ratings but by the actors and the production staff, I started to watch this drama…. despise my skepticism when it comes to Yoon Eun Hye – I mean come on, this actress, when will she leave her rom-com bubble and try something new – anyway going back, despise my skepticism regarding Yoon Eun Hye and pretty much thinking that this drama will be a waste of time, I slowly started to like it.

The story is about Mi Rae (Choi Myoung Gil) who comes from the future to prevent the Mi Rae (Yoon Eun Hye) from 2013 to meet and marry Kim Shin, a tv announcer. As the story is progressing, there seem to be some misunderstanding from Mi Rae (Choi Myoung Gil) when it comes to Kim Shin.

Mi Rae from the future

What bothers me is that Mi Rae (Choi Myoung Gil) and Mi Rae (Yoon Eun Hye) although both are supposed to be the same person, are really different. Yes, I do understand that when someone advances in life, that person’s perspective may change, but how come Mi Rae (Choi Myoung Gil) and Mi Rae (Yoon Eun Hye) think so differently. As far as we now, Mi Rae from the future cares more about the materialistic part of life and Mi Rae from the present is finally starting to value her dream of becoming a tv writer.

Going towards, Kim Shin, to be honest I like the realistic feel the writer is giving him. Most viewers tend to forget that even a tv personality/talent is still human, and a lot of times people tend to judge those tv personality even if they sneezes. Of course the way the writer may be portraying Kim Shin’s human side and not the tv personality isn’t actually right….by making him swear, but it does pour a comical layer on the character.

A character that I didn’t like at first but I started to understand its position, is Seo Yoo Kyung (Han Chae Ah). At first, Yoo Kyung was shown as a shallow reporter who thought that the only way to get more job opportunities was by ass-kissing the superiors.  Luckily, Park Se Joo (Jung Yong Hwa) a chaebol grandson who hides his real identity by working as a VJ, is slowly chancing Yoo Kyung’s way of thinking.

All in all, I’m starting to like this drama, although the story doesn’t seem as strong written as the other currently airing dramas, for me ‘Marry him if you dare’ is perfect to watch while waiting for new episodes of Reply 1994 and Secret. To put it simply, it’s an okay drama while you watch it, but everything about it is easily forgotten.

  1. I love JYH. I’m only watching this because of him. The stroy lacks power, emphasis, more so the story line is weak, in my opinion. The character of the NMR is very shallow, really she went back to the past because she is so sick of being poor while being married to the announcer? Really? As much as I can symphatized with that, for me is way too umrealistic. Although the love triangle is interesting, it is not memorable… The story concentrates more on the old NMR versus the love triangle angle… All in all if it’s not of JYH, I will not have the patience to watch it. sowie.

    1. I have the same problem with this drama, the two Mi Rae who are supposed to be the same person, are totally different in thinking/personality.

      To be honest, the story is starting to get really flat, and I’m kind of thinking to drop it.

      Thank for the comment~

  2. I stop watching this drama from the first episode. I came back from time to time to see whether the drama has a better meaning, but I am very disappointed. From what I understand, the future Mi Rae came back to change the course for younger, more foolish Mi Rae because of what, MONEY??? Future Mi Rae regretted so much because she became poor in the future, and wanted to change the course of history, What a motive, not for saving life,but for marrying into rich family???? A drama only your mother would like you to watch.

    1. I gave up on it as well, tried to give a second chance to the story but it didn’t work; tried to just take the story as it is, after all “Marry him if you dare” is just another rom-com, however the whole thing was getting stupid and decided to just drop it for good.

  3. Mmmm for me this drama is the best.. i don’t care about the ratings. I appreciate each and every line of this story.. for me it’s amazing. Fighting!!

    1. Everyone has different taste in everything, as you some may find the drama good ^o^
