Jang Mi agrees to the fake relationship because she is starting to lose hope that she will be able to find the perfect love after her failed past relationships.

Ki-tae's mom placed her trust in Jang-mi in this episode, to the extent where she even supported her as a sign of resistance to her husband, on the basis that Jang-mi would never treat Ki-tae the way her husband treated her.
It was such a huge step for her and to have it be undercut by the revelation that Jang-mi actually wasn't sincere after all and could be just the same as him. We know it's not as simple as that, but all in one episode they made me feel that forming and breaking of trust so well. So while I don't particularly enjoy this, I can at least appreciate that they set up the conflict in a way that has me feeling for all sides except Se-ah's, because she's craaaaazzy. That despite between kind, empathic, full of spunk to help and all Well, remember what the shaman said - sitting on the fence is "the worst!

I agree that this conflict is a very realistic setup. I liken it to someone who has been betrayed his entire life causing him to close himself off to the world. Then when he finally gathers the courage to open up to someone again, that person turns around and betrays him. You just don't recover from something like that. I'd say the same would apply to Ki Tae too. He'd just withdraw after being hurt twice. KT withdraws into his physical fortress, blocking off the world; YR withdraws behind his perpectual but inscrutable smile.
The 3 of them have baggage; but among the 3 - I would say Ki Tae and Yeo Reum are the most vulnerable, and would shut down and withdraw when hurt. Jang-Mi with her sunnier disposition, bounces back more easily. Even with deeprooteded issues, she tries and tries again, as we see with her parents. I wanted to hammer bricks at both Yeo-rim and Se-ah. I never found them too irritating or important, really.
But now they're not only meddling with Ki-tae and Jang-mi's relationship, they're actually ruining it.
WANT TO FLAG THIS?
Se-ah in particular is insane. How can she possibly have the face to declare she just ruined his life and then ask him to marry her as if she's doing him a favor. Like WTF is wrong with her? Yeo-rim is just typical. He is the nice second lead who loses their head when they realize they're not the person first lead wants to be with. So frustrating when I actually loved his bromance with Ki-tae and his friendship with both the leads.
Anyway, how ridiculously awesome was that scene with Ki-tae's mom, Jang-mi and Psycho mistress? The latter is actually proud enough to flaunt about her affair with a married man! But it really was so well executed. Too bad everything fell through so fast because I really would've fancied a few awkward bonding between Jang-mi and her future mother in law. I love that this drama really relishes in cliches, but occasionally steps out of it to give us some really great character moments.
One of my favorites about it is how the writers allowed Jang-mi to have as broken a family as Ki-tae has in some ways. We usually get situations where one of the main character has a perfect family and the other person learns what its like to be in that kind of home.
Here, both Ki-tae and Jang-mi's families are torn apart in different ways. Both aren't perfect by any means but somehow, being together makes things better, clearer and maybe even happier for both the families. I feel like I still haven't figured out Hyun-hee. She seems like a gold digger but at points look sincere too.
I'm not sure if she really is with Hoon-dong because of the money, baby or something else. But there's a whole lot of mystery surrounding her character which makes her very interesting even if they eventually go the obvious route. I'm super happy that Jang-mi has also admitted that she likes Ki-tae. They both make up for what the other lacks; I just hope they find their way to each other very soon. This drama keeps getting better and better for me and I say this after watching episode I don't mind the angst at all because I trust the writers will continue with the story without dragging it too much.
What's pretty epic about this drama is how it continues to be hilarious even in the midst of angst. That's difficult to do so hat off, show! It's also why I actually felt the deep-rooted sense of betrayal that both families experienced when finding out the truth in a way that I usually don't when watching contract romances. Usually, the family finds the contract and that just means it's time for the respective couple's allotted separation time.
But here, I actually feel how their lie hurt their families because being together actively made them happy Jang-mi's family or made them change for the better Ki-tae's. That girl is unbelievable. I knew from her absence during the episode that she was gonna show up at the end and mess things up. I do not get anybody who tries to defend her. I have not detested a second lead girl in so long, and I'm kind of sad it's in a drama that felt like it was gonna be different from the norm. She just needs to go, and I'm glad Ki-tae finally had the sense to tell her to never appear in front of him again.
I totally agree with you about Yeo-reum. I have made it pretty clear how much I don't like him, but I still appreciated that he was on Jang-mi's side. That hug killed any so-so feeling I had about him, and pushed him into dead-to-me territory. I get that he's been feeling anxious since he first started seeing her attraction to Ki-tae, but she was honest with him, and instead of being decent and accepting, he pulled a dick move.
He and Se-ah both are just so selfish. They want these two people who don't want them, and in one go, they destroy two families without any thought. Yes, Ki-tae and Jang-mi shouldn't have let this ruse go on so long, but it was their secret to keep and their secret to tell. I was so happy to see progress made on Jang-mi and Ki-tae's mom's relationship and hated that it was taken away so quickly. I think the last time I hated a female second lead this much was Sena in Rooftop Prince. We'll have to wait and see how this shows ends to determine which girl I end up hating more.
But at least Se Na wasn't pining after Tae Yong. She had her own man Tae Mu to be obsessed with. I hate second female leads more when there is a love triangle and she is manipulatively keeping the OTP apart. Se-na is an evil sister but she wasn't pining after the male lead. Se-ah's character here is almost the same with the second female lead in old drama 'All About Eve' played by Kim So Yeon. Truly hated her in that drama!
I've refreshed db's page for God knows how many times. Thank God it's finally here. I am talking to you both, Se-ah. But telling him off to mom is something on a entirely different level of bad. And after doing so she still had the face to ask Ki-tae to marry her? Jesus, do the writers really have to write her character to be this shameless? And with that knowledge, I thought he was going to step back for real despite his sometimes spiteful comments here and there , if Jang-mi really decides to woman-up and confess her feelings.
And when she finally does, he DID that. Did you really have to put mom in there, out of everyone, to watch them. Oh, the strings you pull, drama. She was so awesome today. I almost peed my pants the whole time she did that. But the thing I feared the most happened, that she discovered about the fake marriage, AFTER she actually accepted Jang-mi and embraced her.
Because it would be much much harder for her to trust Jang-mi again. I non-stop cheered for Ki-tae and kept on getting moony eyes, swooned here and there everytime he silently mumbled and kept his feelings hidden to himself. Because that was just too cute and adorable to handle. Maybe even more so. Seeing her finally coming to her senses the scene in her bedroom was so swoon-worthy, I actually got butterflies when she finally admits to herself she likes Ki-tae for real. But the show stealer in this episode is definitely Yeon Woo-jin.
I would eat him up if I could. Please, please, drama Gods, bless my heart because I can take no more angst. The whole cook-off, drink-off, and sing-off scenes were so priceless. As much as I hate Yeo-reum right now, I The series of bashful looks Ki-tae gives when coming out in her dad's clothes This was possibly my favorite episode of the series! I was SO glad to see both Jang-mi and Ki-tae confront their growing feelings for each other. Is it weird that I was actually more heartbroken for Jang-mi's relationship with Ki-tae's mom at the end of this episode, than I was for Jang-mi's relationship with Ki-tae?
That was hilarious, I was fistpumping momma the whole time. And the scene after, where she broke out laughing, was one of the most heartwarming of the series. I should've suspected then and there that everything would come crashing down on us! In spite of the heartbreak hotel that is in store for us next episode which: Only now can Jang-mi and Ki-tae build an honest relationship from the ground up.
I'm interested in seeing where the plot goes from here! Not too many tears, please, show! That scene when Ki-tae's mom broke out laughing I swear, my heart grew a thousand sizes. Except not, like, in a medically dangerous way. I'm so glad you say that because it reminds me that I've been remiss in this area Kim Hae-sook is magical. Loved Ki Tae's mom smack down with her husband's skanky mistress. Finally, she let go of her icy exterior and beat up the mistress which she heartily deserved.
There is something funny about a dirty fight between women Also, the scene with Ki Tae's mom and Jang Mi together laughing and probably brought them together at least temporarily. Ki Tae's mom had a cathartic effect on her bottled up emotions. I was laughing so hard because I haven't seen such a funny hair pulling scene in these dramas for quite awhile. Se Ah is a smart and beautiful woman that most men would treasure, but she is crazy The man is suppose to propose, not the woman who has already been dumped down three years ago.
I thought Jang Mi was going to step trough the door any minute. Love the actress who plays her, but not her role. Im freeze, then my heart broke to pieces at jangmi and kitae's mom scene, in the end of eps. Jang Mi and Ki Tae were so adorable with their kind of matching coral shirts and was it just me or did anyone else tear up with the proposal?
Ki Tae has come such a long way and that entire set up and the effort was so simplistic bur so beautiful until Se Ah walked in.
I had butterflies in my stomach as he prepared for the proposal as he went from being irritated at having to blow up all the balloons have you ever heard of a balloon pump? When he "confessed" to Nemo, I about died. He was so happy about it but when his face fell when he saw that damn woman, my heart breaks for him.
Oh you poor puppy. That hug, though, was very calculated. What a reward for Jang-Mi's frankness. Wow, Se-Ah just stepped into a whole other level of delusion there. It's a failing on the writer's part I think that she's gotta be soooo bat crazy to draw out the marriage storyline, because she could've been made a lot more sympathetic even as a manipulator.
Now she's just burned through every shred of sympathy anyone would've had for her her, and then some. Yeah, I can pretty much attribute every failing of this drama to the writing of Se-ah's character. I'm willing to forgive the drama, not Se-ah lol to an extent because this certainly isn't the first bitchy second lead, but I think I just find it more jarring in this drama because I love what I love about it SO MUCH. I can deal with Se-ah and Yeo-reum even though they are nothing more than standard k-drama obstacles overcome on the path to true love.
In spite of this, I have found Yeo-reum unexpectedly charming. But that's the actor's charisma, not the way the character is written. But I could not be more bored by Mamma's Boy who could have been dispensed with after episode 1 from a plot point-of-view and Gold-digger why have a female best friend if she's not gonna be awesome - I've never seen a more pointless character in a k-drama than this one, and I like this actress a lot -- it's the writer's crime.
Se-ah is giving me goosebumps, she does not deserve to be anyone else housewife. Thank you LollyPip for the recap and thank you for letting me know I'm not the only girl that right now can't stand Yeo Reum Even if he's pretty he crossed a line that one should NEVER cross, if you know the person you like has feelings for another then support them, let them grow without you because trying to force a relation ship in those terms will only hurt you more, while watching k-dramas I should be used to this type of personalities we all know we've seen them often but lately they had stopped turning up, so I was again miffed to see them come up in this drama.
Now I'm just sad for where we're headed, there is only two weeks left of this drama and I am not seeing the marriage part of it yet!!! Now on to mom, I felt really good for the strides forward we made with her, specially her beating the stupid mistress who obviously does not know her place, but for this we can blame the husband who 1st did not respect the marriage and 2nd did not let the mistress know she has no rights to berate the real lady of the house since she is the one getting in between them- I've always had a problem with mistresses who don't know their place!
I will say this about the drama in general, I still like it, but it has wound down for me a lot And I think it has to do with the fact that I miss seeing the old Jang Mi, yes she's shown herself a little lately but I miss seeing the woman who was relentless and who knew what she wanted and was not afraid of taking it, hopefully we'll see that character back soon enough I feel sorry for Yeo Reum. It's true that what he did is wrong but I kind of understand where he's coming from.
He tried his best to look the other way and be understanding of Ki Tae and Jang Mi's situation in the past few episodes. Not a lot of people would react the way he did when they see their girlfriend kissing another man! I see this as his last attempt to try to hold on to Jang Mi.
By the way, anybody knows the name of the song the Yeo Reum sang when they were singing in the karaoke bar?

I'm going crazy looking for it. Choi Jin Hyuk sang it on Emergency Couple too. Thank you so much! I heard it in Emergency Couple too. It was easy to search for it that time coz CJH mentioned the title. I was one of the few who thought, initially, that Se-Ah might be a little crazy albeit interesting when she was still in the 'I don't love you or want to marry you but I still want your sperm' territory. But the interesting went out the window and the crazy became full blown in the past couple of episodes.
Pity coz I actually think Sunhwa, as a person is extremely fun and relatable from all her variety show gigs- a total from Se-Ah. So glad to see Mom starting to reclaim her self All the snuggles helped me to feel reassured as far as Ki Ta goes. I also feel sad about what this means for Jang Mi's family's newfound happiness. Does anyone know the song that plays when Ki-tae is blowing up the balloons? I feel like I've heard it before and it's driving me crazy not knowing lol.
I think they played it when Jang-mi and Yeo-reum were driving off to the beach at the beginning of episode 9. So that might be where you heard it from. Someone on soompi said that it's the next OST to be released, but I'm not sure. Someone mentioned that it is Lee Seung-gi's Will you marry me. It played in episode 1 when Jang-mi was preparing to propose to Hoon-dong. Ah, no that's the song that plays in the cold open. I meant later in the episode when we see him preparing his place for the proposal.
I did the same! I love when he cuts Yeo-reum off! Been reading mostly in silence these few weeks without commenting coz I didn't have time to think through my feelings for this drama super busy with my real life zzzz and pen-down my rants clearly. There are dramas which I loved for the storyline, for the cinematography, for the acting, or for the great directing. MND is 1 of the latter few. She can act, she is pretty hopefully natural, er hem and she plays the role of Joo Jang Mi with such tenderness and sensitivity that you want to hug her and pat her back everytime she messed things up with good intent.
Despite Jang Mi always getting hurt due to her naiveness or goodwill to do something for others, she never once hate or give up on those who betrayed her. So she continues to help others, and continues to get hurt. He genuinely wants her to change in order to stop her from hurting again and again. He plays the initially cold and cynical Gong Gi Tae who actually carries a huge emotional baggage which no one has ever tried lifting from his back. Not even his so-called ex-GF and a friend of 20 years. This couple does not only understand each other, they are there for each other.
Jang Mi for Gi Tae, when he almost died in his bathroom from dehydration.
And many more instances when both needed each other and they instinctly show up to help. We can all see how naturally the 2 is together too. They are comfortable with each other, hugging, holding hands, bickering, kissing etc. It felt so genuine. I see sincerity and I see heart. Actually, come to think about it, NONE I can only come up with 2 other OTP I have seen that are comparable: Both of those also had the casual, genuine intimacy that I find so endearing, which Jang Mi and Gi Tae are slipping into. I'm really looking forward to seeing how they interact once they admit how they feel to each other.
Although I didn't actually at that time wanted them to become a real-life couple, their chemistry was sizzling on-screen! It's more like sex-appeal? The way they CARE for each other. I'm with you on this. I'm not quite sure exactly how it happened, but this couple has become one of my favorites of all time: I know I've gotten it bad when I cry with them, laugh with them, angry for them, root for them, and love with them. Usually, kdramas use all these stupid unecessary utterly BORING same storyline in an attempt to get viewers to empathize, sympathize or whatever with the OTP amnesia, 1 OTP's family killed the other's family, silly self-acrifices etc.
Just the OTP themselves is enough for us viewers to root for them! Yes, it's a show that you have to recommend to friends by saying - it's not such a great show but I promise you will love it just because of the leads. Witch's Romance, while having great GREAT side characters, had such a bad 2nd lead guy that could have ruined the show but the leads were so cute together that it's one of my favorite dramas.
Until now I don't get Yeo-rum and Jang-Mi. I mean I don't get how they end up liking each other. I feel that I missed one scene. I can't sympathize with his character or acting except for that scene last week on the beach. JM in my opinion only like YR cause he was cute, rebound guy and he said he liked her.. One evil-second lead is painful enough why must there be two!? She's manipulative but not as crazy as Se-ah. As long as she doesn't try to mess up with or seduced Gi-tae, it doesn't matter who she ends up with. She can marry Hoon and have a dozen kids with him for all I care.
After watching both episodes this weekend, Hyeon Hee is the one who gets my wrath. I can kinda see where Se-ah is coming from she is desperate and feels that this is her last chance , although I don't condone her actions. But Hyeon Hee, getting a man drunk, sleeping with him and then forcing him to marry her because she is pregnant with his child? I think she is as every bit as evil as Se-ah. Good luck to her and her Mama's boy. There's a saying that "be careful what you wish for, cause you just might get it". I wonder if the drama could fast forward a few years into their union to see how everything worked out for them.
Yeah I thought so too, but I guess it's just for a dramatic effect and to leave us with a cliffhanger at the end, and no preview either, so yes definitely for the cliffhanger. I really don't want to see the fallout of this, especially the relationship between mom and Jang Mi. Oh, yeah i know. I meant, i am gonna wait until episode 13 and 14 come out as well. That way i can calmly skip the "fallout": This episode was a rollercoaster ride - but I think the heart of the entire thing was one small line from Ki Tae not even mentioned in the recap. When Yeo Reum shows up at the apartment at the beginning of the episode, Jang Mi jumps up and says to him "Let's go out to eat".
Ki Tae's response is a direct and slightly offended "What about me? Of course, the entire male bonding competition made me even more wistful for a happy French sex comedy in which Jang Mi, Yeo Reum, and Ki Tae all lived together, shared a bed, and cooked delicious food while spending weekends at the beach. Someone write that fanfic for me, ok? This episode finally helped me understand the point of Se-Ah and Yeo-Reum's characters. Everything that happened led up to Se-Ah spilling the beans to KiTae's mother and Mom seeing JangMi being embraced by YeoReum thereby confirming her worst fears - that KiTae could end up stuck in a marriage similar to her own.
I have to applaud the writers for having things dovetail so nicely. Good job, writers, good job. Even though the fallout in the next episode sucks just when everything was going so well! Jangmi and Kitae's mother bonded! I'm glad things are out in the open so they can embark on a real, honest relationship now. There was so much greatness in this episode tho - KiTae and JangMi scrambling to defend each other to Grandma, Halmoni realizing that these crazy kids really do like each other, JangMi jumping in to help KiTae during every single competition with Yeoreum, KiTae hanging out with JangMi's family and them embracing him like a real son-in-law aaaaaaaaaaaw!
And then it all came crashing down. SUCH a great episode, seriously. Han Groo and YWJ have such great chemistry and it's wonderful seeing them on each other's side at this point after all the cute bickering that led up to this point. Also awesome as it was to see Mom standing up to the mistress, I really want to see her take down her husband for real.
He deserves much more than a subtle put-down! Also y'all, I actually feel bad for Se-Ah. I thought that KiTae rejecting her when she tried to come on to him at the beach house was the final straw for her but NO! That wasn't enough rejection for her. This man has rejected her about five times now and she still won't give up!
She actually believed that doing this would make him come to her. She tried blackmailing him into having a baby with her, then she tried seducing him at the beach house and now she's revealed the whole ruse to his mother. There is no logic or sanity in that kind of thinking at all. And it is just really sad that she is SO hung up on this man that she will do whatever it takes to try to be with him. It's kind of scary, honestly. I mean, like dang, girl.
You're gorgeous, successful and rich. Tons of men would want to be with you. Let this one go already! She has the traits of a control freak and a narcissist and to make it worse,she's delusional too. That perhaps explained her craziness. I hate to say it but my first thought was prostitution.
If they have host bars in Korea, he could do that. Or he could be like an escort. On TV, that's what people always resort to when they're desperate for money. I confess to being a little confused by that scene. Why not stay employed and just find a second job? I don't get it, YR. And does he feel like he needs the money to repay KT so he can not be indebted to him, or is it because he still thinks JM is thinking with her wallet instead of her heart? He doesn't understand why he's not Jang Mi's first choice for the record, neither do I. Seriously, Jang Mi, why are you choosing the emotionally-stunted guy with control issues and a woefully dysfunctional family over the sweet, thoughtful guy who only has some abandonment issues which means he will never leave you, by the way , who not only looks like a freaking GQ model but also loves to cook?
I might be in the minority here judging from comments but I really feel like the writing has become lazier not just because they no longer bother with subverting cliches or their opening scenes but also because Se-ah and Yeo-reum are two of the most poorly written second leads ever. Part of it could have been acting although I think Sun-hwa was doing her best with what limited crazy material she was given Couldn't break out of his idol shell but most of it was because of the absolute departure from any type of sense or logic or even emotional connection with the second leads.
I've seen Yeo-reum done better see Coffee Prince - and that was more than a decade ago!! Se-ah belongs in her own world of crazy I don't understand how she exists. The total disconnect with the second leads is on the complete other side of the spectrum where the leads are totally bringing it on!!!
Marriage not dating ep 11 | METE AKYOL
The inconsistency in the narratives is really what drives me insane watching this drama. How can the leads be so well-developed and nuanced see their emotional response to each other, their deep understanding of their respective fears, their dysfunctional family backgrounds etc I seriously wish they'd stripped away all the other characters or at least subverted them to be more interesting than the typical cookie-cutter characters. Particularly since they had scope to be so much more interesting. It's a damn shame. Not gonna lie - totally watching this for the leads only. Hope the angst gets over itself soon and that's for you too Ep12!
I still feel like this ep reveals a lot more than what people give credit for. We now know the real yeorum and we see mom's progression. Sure it seems like a cliche but its a cliche done right. Jangmi has been lying all this time automatically she would feel guilty hence a reasonable noble idiocy. The side characters are not as developed as, say, reply94 but i like how each action is actually making the story. Like hoondong growing up because he has a sense of responsibility now. As for seah, i guess shes well developed enough. She has her reasons and all. Yeorum is just badly acted i guess?
I dont get him. Its like he managed to make me hate him without actually doing anything else but smile that creepy grin wow bitter bitch mode sorry. Oh btw i know a person like seah irl! But its a guy. He literally blackmailed his ex my friend just because he wants her to be the mother of his children. Its been going on for 4 years now! I know seah is frigging cray but apparently real life people could be as cray as she is. YR on the other hand i think is jus who he is.. I thought that they would turn HH into someone with a deep story but the girl is jus a golddigger looking for an easy way out..
YR on the other hand could of been a better character but the actor himself is jus so bad that there is nothing to look forward too.. Does anyone notice that in the beginning the woman who walked into that proposal lane was wearing high heels but when we get to the scene she wore slippers? You know Jang Mi is going to be pouring drinks every night regardless so she will be seeing a whole lot of adorable drink Ki Tae. Between Episodes 11 and 12, I spent this entire weekend wishing that I could punch every single character in his or her face and screaming "Do things that make sense!
I am more mad a Yeo Reum than I am at Seah because it's been long established that she's operating according to the rules of her home planet, which is Opposite Land from ours. I will defend him in that I don't think his Douche Move was preplanned. And we all know that if Seah was in on it it would have been a full on kidnapping. I went to church yesterday and managed to calm down and remind myself that these aren't real people who affectmy life at all.
But now it's Monday and work has been crazy this morning and I'm angry at these dummies all over again! Fave part of this ep was definitely the cat fight! Does someone know the name of the song playing while Gi Tae is blowing up the balloons? It's a great tune!
