KDRAMA REVIEW: Marry My Husband (2024)

I bet it is no surprise that I am doing a review of the recently ended Korean Drama Marry My Husband. It felt like EVERYONE was watching this drama. There was a lot discussion about this drama - both good and bad things. I completely understand why people disliked certain plot points that happened in the second half of the drama. This is why I felt like I needed to close out Marry My Husband with a blogpost and podcast episode review. I wanted to add my opinion and thoughts into the discussion. I wanted to see if I agreed or disagreed with some of the other opinions that were out there.

Now as per usual with any review I write, I will not be including any spoilers in this review.


A QUICK SYNOPSIS OF MARRY MY HUSBAND - Kang Ji Won is married to Park Min Hwan but he is horrible husband and she is just living a miserable life. To add onto all her difficulties, Kang Ji Won discovers she has cancer and discovers that her best friend and husband are having an affair. A fight starts and Kang Ji Won ends up dying. She wakes up 10 years in the past. Kang Ji Won decides to use the opportunity to change her future and live the life she wants. This proves easier said than done.


I had a lot of fun with this Korean drama. Was it perfect? ABSOLUTELY NOT! I still had a fun time and I thought it had a satisfying ending. I loved watching Kang Ji Won change and become more confident. I loved watching Yoo Ji Hyuk support her. I even loved watching the villains because they were so deliciously evil. There are a lot of things to love about this drama. It was quite the wild ride. I might be a little bias with this drama and its' review though because I do love these revenge/makjang stories. ALRIGHT ONTO THE REVIEW OF MARRY MY HUSBAND!

WHAT I LOVED ABOUT THIS DRAMA

THE ACTING - l thought the acting in this drama was quite good. Multiple actors/actresses in the cast took on roles they never did before and pulled it off well. I definitely had never seen them do these types of roles before and I think I was able to appreciate their acting more because they took this risk. Especially the actors/actresses who took on villain roles for this drama. The cast made their characters and stories believable. I was not taken out of the story because of their acting which is a good thing. When a villain can cause me to ABSOLUTELY hate them, that is a sign of good acting.


THE REVENGE - I did not read the webtoon so, I did not know how Ji Won was going to pull off the revenge and get her happy ending. I thought the end was very satisfying. I loved watching the revenge play out and see the villains get what was coming to them. I also liked that there were twists on what I assumed would be the ending for the villains. I thought the revenge part of the drama was tightly written. I had a blast watching the revenge. I also liked watching where the points in Ji won's life played out and what character they went too - some sad but others were fun to watch them be assigned to the new character.


THE VILLAINS - THE VILLAINS WERE SO JUICY IN THIS DRAMA! I assumed that Park Min Hwan being her husband would be the big villain in the drama. That turned out to not be true and I loved that twist in the story. I thought the person they chose to be the ultimate Big Bad was a better choice and it made the ending so much more satisfying. The villains' acting in this drama was so good and believable. I had a lot of fun watching how evil they were.


THE COUPLES - I honestly was not expecting multiple couples in this drama. I thought it would be the lead couple and maybe a second couple. WE GOT THREE COUPLES AND I LOVED ALL THREE!! I liked them all for different reasons. I even liked our horrible villain couple because they deserved each other. I enjoyed watching all of these couples' relationships progress. I loved the sweet moments with all of them. I loved that the couples were different ages and had different attitudes. I thought all the couples had great chemistry with each other. I loved that I could root for more than one couple in this drama. I also loved that these couples supported each other's relationships.


THE ENDING - I thought the ending was a highlight of the drama for multiple reasons. One reason is we got a satisfying ending when it came to the revenge. Everyone got what they deserved. I was satisfied with how the revenge played out and who ended up with what. I loved that there were twists that I did not see coming and some characters got an ending I didn't think they would get. I liked that the good characters I was rooting for got their happy ending. I also loved that we got to see the happy ending that our lead couple got in the end. I loved that we got a wedding and a look into their family life. I loved to see all of couples supporting each other in the end as well. I loved seeing where our villains all ended up. IT WAS JUST A REALLY SATISFYING WAY TO WRAP UP THE DRAMA!

WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER

LESS EPISODES - I don't think this drama needed to be 16 episodes. I think it would have been even better if it was 12. Maybe because the one thing I disliked was what everyone else did not like. That was the addition of a certain fiancée that showed up in episode 12. I think if they had reduced the episode count down to 12, they would not have needed that unnecessary character.


ONE STORY ARC/CHARACTER NOT NEEDED - The fiancée was not needed. I saw her as a way to extend the story for a couple of episodes by adding her as an additional villain. She just added more drama to play out for a couple of episodes before the true revenge could start and everyone could get what was coming to them. I think we had so many good villains already, we did not need to add another. I think everyone can agree with me that she was not needed.

AND THAT IS MY REVIEW OF MARRY MY HUSBAND!!


I know a lot of people dropped this drama or their score went down once episode 12 aired. I still think there is a lot to love about this drama. If you are a fan of a revenge drama where you will love the romance and hate - I mean HATE - the villains, you will like Marry My Husband.
