Marry Me or Not continues to be marvelous, even at the pace of turning serious and even a little bit makjang. That’s not a bad thing, makjang gets associated with negative connotations but the original intent is merely to drop some dramatic associations to heighten the tension, but has since been hijacked to ever greater heights of absurd in K-dramas. Huan Huan and Justin, at least they clearly know they’ve gotten under each other’s skin, but it’s pride and confusion that’s keeping them from a breakthrough, but it feels so believable thanks to fantastic writing that’s given them consistency in personality. I believe why Justin, the divorce lawyer who doesn’t believe in ever after love, would have a hard time taking greater strides with the first girl to affect him this strongly. Same with Huan Huan, she’s battling the twin fears that Justin still has ulterior motives and her own bruised heart for being lied to. I love these two to pieces, so as long as Justin is following his girl and decking bad boys who force kiss her before dragging her away then it’s all good with me.
