I’ve just started watching the Korean drama series Mary Stayed Out All Night (매리는 외박중). It’s also known as Marry Me, Mary, but I prefer the more literal translation. I’ve been meaning to watch this drama for a while. The main reason being that the protagonist is played by Moon Geun-young.
I’m only two episodes in (out of 16), but I like it a lot so far. The tone of the drama is light hearted. There are dramatic and sad parts, but over all it’s a cute story that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy . Basically it’s about Mary, who has quit her studies because she can’t afford her tuition due to her dad’s debts, which are mainly due to his being conned. One night she runs into (literally) a musician named Mu-gyeol, played by singer/actor Jang Geun-suk. In order to make sure Mary has a good life (and finances), her father arranges for her to marry Jeong In, the son of a rich old friend of his. Mary opposes this and asks Mu-gyeol to pretend to be her fiancée to make her father drop the plans of an arranged marriage.
