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.
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.
