Recently, I was finally able to watch the K-drama Still, Marry Me (Dramabeans calls it The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry, which is, apparently, its literal title; the shorter title is its international title). I got interested in watching it because of Dramabeans' rave reviews: Dramabeans calls it "refreshing... like a Sex and the City but without the sex." Well, it's a K-drama, after all.



The drama revolves around three 34-year-old friends: lovely and gutsy reporter Lee Shin-Young (Park Jin-Hee; I think she looks a bit like the lovely Jean Garcia!); tweetums interpreter Jung Da Jung (Uhm Ji-Won); and sophisticated Kim Boo-Ki (Wang Bit-Na, whom some of us might remember as the beautiful Bu-Yong, Hwang Jini's fiercest rival). Then there's a fourth woman, 44 years old, who is often around, although not exactly their friend: Choi Sang-Mi (the beautiful Park Ji-Young). Hence the SATC reference!

Then there are the guys in their lives: 24-year-old singer-composer Ha Min-Jae (Kim Bum, whom everyone will remember as Yi-Jung in Boys Over Flowers-- sorry, Dao Ming Xi and Gu Jun-Pyo, you know I love you both and your actors as well, but I've always had a soft spot for Xi Men / Yi-Jung); dorky but still lovable acupuncturist Na Ban Seok (Choi Chul-Ho); and suave pilot Yoon Sang-Woo (Lee Pil-Mo). Guess who ends up with whom. :P

Asian 30-something single women would certainly find much to identify with in our lovely characters. The first three are already regarded as old maids and there's a certain pressure to hurry up and get married (I know the feeling!) and if they don't get married or at least don't have a boyfriend, they are usually regarded as second-class, even if they are tops in their careers. In this K-drama, our three friends have to deal with this attitude and learn to accept themselves and be happy with what they are whether or not they get married. Yes, I know, there would be something in both Shin-Young and Da-Jung that resonates in us (although I confess that I often want to reach through the screen and smack Da-Jung silly at times, but she's so cutesy that I can't help but laugh at her antics anyway. Wah, and she reminds me of Gae-in in Perfect Match/Personal Taste), but the woman I'd like to emulate would have to be Boo-Ki. She's AWESOME.

Anyway, today's Link Love! Dramabeans' recaps of Still, Marry Me / The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry.
