Mary Stayed Out All Night Episode 3 Written Preview

[Edit: I just realized that the song Mu Gyul sang at the playground when Mae Ri was following him around is called “My Precious.”]

How did Mary Stayed Out All Night (Marry Me, Mary!) do this to me? Make me dying for Monday to come around, at the expense of not even caring that Secret Garden is premiering this weekend. I don’t know, I don’t know. I’m like drunk Mu Gyul (hhhmm, isn’t that standard condition Mu Gyul, actually), in a happy state of being, giggling over the most inane of things.

After you read the written preview for Episode 3 of M3, maybe you’ll feel the same way. The picture above, and the last picture below after the jump, are autographed goodies that will be included in the upcoming M3 OST to be released next week. Everyone’s signature is the perfect mix of scrawl and style – I is jealous and am going to practice my John Hancock now in case the day comes when someone wants my signature (dream on).

I also want to note that a handful of PKissers have mentioned feeling unfaithful to our beloved Playful Kiss for being interested in M3, but I say posh to that! PK will always have a special place in my (our) heart(s), but that does not preclude enjoying other dramas, whether new or old ones. With that said, check out M3 if you’re curious – but I have no clue where to find English subs for this baby since KBS2 has not licensed it to Viikii yet.

Written Preview for Episode 3:

Just like Shim Chung (likely a Korean folk heroine), who sold herself for three bushels of rice in order to make her father understand the severity of the situation, Mae Ri has accepted the responsibility for paying back her father’s debt to Jung In and his father. She has accepted a job at J-Entertainment (Jung In’s fledgling production company).

The ever polite and courteous Jung In does not assign Mae Ri any work. In a blink of an eye, Mae Ri has become a young chaebol’s wife, with all the office employees discussing the sudden arrival of a young wife for their boss.

On the other side of things, Mae Ri’s father is increasingly suspicious of the validity of Mae Ri and Mu Gyul’s relationship. Despite Mae Ri’s ridiculous explanations, her father doesn’t buy her crock of bull. With no other choice left, Mae Ri heads to Mu Gyul’s place. And with that, Mae Ri begins her dual life alternating between Jung In and Mu Gyul.

Mu Gyul has moved into someone’s garage, and started to set up his new residence. After paying the penalty on the contract he tore up, Mu Gyul doesn’t even have enough money for a deposit on this new place. Mae Ri wants to use the money she got from Jung In (when she was manhandled by his employee at the hotel and he gave her some medical expense money) to help Mu Gyul pay his deposit, but Mu Gyul’s pride won’t allow it. Mae Ri goes around Hongdae and collects furniture that’s been thrown away and brings it back to help Mu Gyul set up his new place. Without realizing it, the two of them are beginning to feel the stirrings of something more….

Mae Ri has started to help out on the production of the new drama starring Seo Jun. The actor whom Mae Ri asked for the autograph in the hotel is also starring in this drama, and Mae Ri is his huge fan. The actor’s manager still has it out for Mae Ri, and bad mouths her to Seo Jun. Coincidentally, something goes wrong at the production site, and Seo Jun puts the blame on Mae Ri.

Mu Gyul and Jung In meet each other, but neither knows that the other guy is Mae Ri’s other husband. After working her night job (likely a midnight shift), Mae Ri goes to Jung In’s house for her 9-5 hours with him, and overhears Jung In and Mu Gyul talking.

Omo omo omo. Slap me silly, but the story seems like it’s getting more and more interesting and fraught with possibilities up the wazoo. Please make it good. I can forgive a lackluster start and uneven first two episodes, but I really want a drama that I like to find solid footing as soon as possible, and stay there permanently.

  1. You know what? I’m feeling the withdrawal syndrome too. Have been nursing it by reading the manhwa online. Don’t have a clue what they’re saying, but I’m enjoying it nonetheless. Btw, there’s a typo in your title. Episide.

    • Thanks for the typo-catch hellochloe!

      Just so you know, the PD specifically told his cast NOT to read the manhwa, as the drama will be pretty much a completely different series of events. It’s loosely based on the set-up of the manhwa, but then all the characters have been given tweaks, and the narrative has been greatly changed.

      From reading the manhwa (not my cup of tea) and watching the first 2 eps of M3, I can see the huge differences already, and I prefer the drama actually.

      • Yup I do see ’em too. Like how Mary seems like a normal chick there (read: not a hobo) and MG and M is actually in love with each other and they only find out that she’s married (to JI) AFTER she’s married (to MG). Something of the sort.

        I guess the change made for the drama is better. It evens out the competition between the two male leads since the girl is not in love with any one of them. yet.

  2. For anyone out there looking for English subs, they’re up on Viikii (though I’m not sure how long they’re going to stay there once license negotiations start):

    If that doesn’t work for you, someone also uploaded them on Youtube:

    (note: the user calls the videos “episode 1,” “episode 2,” etc, but they’re really just parts 1-5 of episode 1)

    I can’t wait for Monday! =]

  3. Ockoala,
    I tried to watch this show but I couldn’t reach halfway the first episode. I will probably be able to watch it in 2011, or when I have forgotten a certain doctor and nurse romance. I cannot multiwatch though I can usually start another drama while still “reeling” from the previous watch. Up to now, I think that the actor in the upcoming drama Athena is called Sung Min Woo. Will I ever forget Baek Seung Jo and Oh Ha Ni? Please. I am not blaming you.

    • you are right…i still have to watch this drama after a year or two…

      before….when i watched Goong/Princess Hours, i just can’t move on for 4 years and because of Playful Kiss, i forgot all about Princess Chae-gyung and Prince Shin but instead stalk sites about Playful Kiss

  4. Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows where i can watch this drama with english subs. Looked at dramasub, mysoju, but to no avail…. sigh. thx.

  5. Hello ockoala!!

    Thank you for your kind soul to translate the preview for episode 3. I was waiting desperately to find out what is going to happen….. I am so looking forward to next week!!! I will be checking your blog now that I know of it!!!! ^^

  6. LOL I totally feel the same. XD This drama has been covering the void left by the dramas I followed and loved the past few months (MGIAG and PK). I love it, love it, love it! ^^

    I’m still looking forward to Secret Garden though. XD

  7. Many have commented on how ridiculous the premise of the story is… and one viewer even asked “How can Mary handle all the craziness….?”
    Well here comes in how Mary is characterized in the story… a strong, resilient, patient, optimistically innocent young lady. She’s vulnerable and scared at times, but her sunny nature seems to be her saving grace.
    She’s also dependable, constant, the anchor for her Dad. Now she somehow has become that amusing angel that entered MuGyul’s erratic life…and also might later be a sweet inspiration to Jung-In’s ambition driven life. The girl’s heart is so big…her warmth, her affection and presence would be their beacon of light and inspiration.

  8. Dear Ockoala, thank you for M3 epi3 preview writing.
    I like your thoughts as usual. You mentioned about our PK love. I am a kind of person that if I like one drama or book or movie I am keep watching, reading again & again.
    I cannot count how many times I have seen “You are beautiful” (at that time I was in oversea and did not know your blog yet.)
    Same as I am falling in love with PK now. I know that we need to move on. I am sure that I will be enjoyed with M3 very soon.

  9. Thank you so much for your preview writing. It helps me a lot. Cause, i guess now I’m an addict to this series. Though, it is not the best seriese, i like how the story develops and the the cast of the 3 leading actors. When can I find the preview of ep.4, make it asap, pleaseeeeee.
    Thx in advance

  12. Thanks a lot for the preview. I enjoyed watching series that has a feel good vibe in it and I can say that M3’s first 2 episodes got me hooked. Can’t wait for Monday to come!
