The only good in this drama is the comedy part and about the family. So yeah...*^^* My 2nd time to watch this and still loving every single of it!!! The only positives about this drama were the comedy, ost and the last 2 episodes where there is finally an emotional breakthrough between the Kong family members. She just want to fall in love and return a kiss when she is unsure. waiting for the ending of this story..still have no answer...... but he was a good friend I think he was so funny hehehehe LOVE KI TAE AND JANG MI This drama never fails to make me smile. I really love the chemistry of gi tae and jang mi, they are so cute together that is why I hope to see them togethervin other dramas.after watching it, I still can't move on that even during sleep, i suddenly smile coz i remember those funny moments of this drama.. The story is more about relationships & responsibilities..communications are very important.
The rest of this was just repetitive break up and make up cycles that started becoming annoying to watch. It is pretty boring if the writer had not wrapped it in comedy.
I believe the chemistry between the main leads was amazing throughout the entire drama. I dislike joo jang mi since the beginning of the drama, so i hate seeing jang mi and ki tae together. A light hearted one, not one that will stress you out & i loveeee the main couple!! The very reason why this drama gives a big impact to me because the actors and actresses act naturally you would really laugh out loud with those funny scenes because the artist were great in portraying it. The main girl is a little bit annoying, i don't like her character, but that's just me personally i don't really like those types of girls. Some people described this drama as being "unrealistic", but isn't that why we watch dramas? (and thank god cable tv can shelve drama prudishness) I really love the drama.. They are so sweet I want to see the next ep faster I can't Wait anymore their drama is making me crazy.. let me think of me and my Bf that we first time met each other I hope.. Faster and I want to download and see the other ep... I will will support the drama And the other drama too... I wonder if Ki-Tae would 'stick-it-in' or 'put-it-in-the-tube'. Everything make me laughing louder and louder!!!!!! Love her expressions especially in ep4, when she saw Yeo Reum before leaving for their "date' Watched that scene few time. Cant wait for next episode I start watching "Marriage Not Dating" for Jinwoon and Yeon Woo Jin (love u boys :) but it's a very great drama actually hehe...
A romantic comedy about a man who doesn't want to get married and a woman who earnestly wants to get married.
Gong Ki Tae is a successful plastic surgeon who keeps getting pressured by his family to get married but all he wants is to live alone in peace.
She adds a sense of spunk and charm to a cast that already has two very smart females portrayed. He learns from his mistakes and also brings a comic sense to the story. I really love the chemistry between Han Groo and Yeon Woo-Jin. Thanks to the writer, director and everyone for bringing this drama. Honestly, i only started watching this because I was desperate waiting for the next episodes of Trot Lovers, but almost straight away I got hooked! You watch this kind of drama just because it is fun and you enjoy it. i even like "the eyes conversation between jang mi and ki tae" kkk...you have this kind of conversation with your boyfriend you better marry him kkk.... Some people described this drama as being "unrealistic", but isn't that why we watch dramas? Woojin oppa said he will give "dating dinner", Han Groo said she and woojin oppa will give free hug in gangnam, Sunhwa also said she will give free hug, Jungmin said he will change his hair color hehehe...sohee said she will give a free wedding picture for 5 fans. since ki tae start to falling in love with jangmi, everything will become more serious : D My personal opinion the drama isn't what I expected. I am from an asian country too, but never see this but in korean drama!!!
The second male lead was fantastic to listen and watch, and the cooking aspect of the show was fun! Was one of my all time faves, its a must watch drama. I do hope that they will have another kdrama cause I'm gonna watch it. Yeon Woojin must be a fantastic actor, because he's not my type at all, yet I completely fell for him in this drama. I LOVE this drama, its Hilarious and definitely a must watch. could have been made better by not making the story coming back and forth. this is such a refreshingly funny light hearted (and paradoxically enough realistic) romantic comedy. i hope it never descends into makjang it's such a fun ride at the moment.
The drama didn't get better in episode 2 nor 3, at which point I spent a few minutes on one of the following episodes and gave up. I hope that the writers will follow it up with Season 2, with Jang Mi and Gi Tae raising their own kids... i just can not stop watching jang mi and ki tae (both of you, Han Groo and Yeon Woo Jin is seriously cute). Wish there was a way to like yeo-reum but other than his looks there is nothing.. its just like how americans are obsessed with tanning but with asians they like being white bc back in the days if you were fair skinned it meant you came from a well off family vs those who had to labor n work the field. It's the perfect summer drama and I'm glad I clicked on the first episode.
I'm still wondering what's worse: the male characters' total lack of personality and charisma or the women's pathetic lack of dignity. i think ki tae need someone like jang mi who never give up in love, a loving person and a straight forwad yet not a hypocrite person. I tried watching Marriage Without Dating and possibly could have enjoyed it. This totally beats all the other dramas playing right now a predictable drama, yet fun!If you’re Gong Gi Tae (Yeon Woo Jin), you give your family what you know they would never accept.Gi Tae is a confirmed bachelor who has no interest in getting married, but he faces tremendous pressure from his family to settle down. I've really enjoyed this drama, bc it's mainly funny but has emotional depth, perhaps what sets this one apart is the focus on supporting character's lives, the star of this drama to me is Kim Hae-Sook, she carried her scenes beautifully, and that's how a talented actress like her operates, her marriage was what kept me going, I wanted a happy ending for her, and she finally got it! we're expecting for happy family of Han Groo and Yeon Woo-Jin moreover also with Heo Jeong-Min and Yoon So-Hee, also dont know what happen with Jinwoon. It seems that slowly KD's are evolving in how they are depicting the family dynamics. but after watched first episode, this drama is so damn good. ending is not enough I thought of a GRAND WEDDING.. idk why but when i know this drama from tvn, i thought it was bad.I started watching this because there are a lot of good reviews saying that it was funny and one of the best dramas out there. I forced myself to watch the 1st episode but I couldn't even finish it. if you hate romcoms then dont watch this, however if you want a feel good drama that will leave you on butterflies, this is what you need P. Han groo and Yeon woo jin are both brilliant in this.
