If you need to name a K-drama rom-com queen, Park Min-young will definitely be top of mind. The actress has starred in countless hits including her most recent drama “Love in Contract.” You can always count on quality acting from her, and she won’t disappoint in “Marry My Husband.” The actress went to great lengths to portray her cancer patient character. Park Min-young explained, “Besides small details such as her gestures, how she uses her voice, her clothes, and her hairstyle, I focused on creating a person who truly hit rock bottom. Given my age, I thought about when else I would be able to pour this much passion and energy into a character, so I put my all into creating this character.”

2. Characters you’ll love & love to hate bring excitement to the plot

Besides the lovely protagonist, characters like Yu Ji-hyeok (Na In-woo) and Baek Eun-ho (Lee Gi-kwang) are set to charm audiences. Na In-woo describes his character as “someone who can provide everything for the person he loves whether it’s an emotional or material need. His only flaw is he’s a bit clumsy at expressing his feelings.”

Lee Gi-kwang shared, “Eun-ho is like a sunflower. He’s only ever liked Ji-won and he has a lot of cute lines. He’s someone who can express innocent and child-like love.”

Meanwhile, viewers will surely hate antagonists Park Min-hwan (Lee Yi-kyung) and Jeong Su-min (Song Ha-yoon). Lee Yi-kyung playfully commented, “He’s a detestable character even from my perspective.” He and Song Ha-yoon also joked about how each other’s character was sometimes worse than their own. There’ll be a lot of fun in loving and hating these characters, for sure!

3. Satisfy your thirst for sweet justice and revenge

Kang Ji-won is determined to get revenge after dying in the hands of her treacherous husband and best friend. You’ll be able to live vicariously through Ji-won’s quest and cheer her on as she punishes her betrayers.

Director Park Won-guk shared, “It’s a refreshing drama where the villains will get punished without mercy.” Park Min-young added, “Kang Ji-won has a lot of anger, to the point where she has no mercy and does not forgive her enemies.” The revenge is all the more satisfying considering the sweet and sacrificial nature of Kang Ji-won. We can’t wait for justice to be served and for the villains to get what they deserve. 

4. A story about taking control of your destiny

“Marry My Husband” is also about a new chance at life as Ji-won takes charge and decides to live a completely different life the second time around. Director Park Won-guk said, “It’s a series where she makes way for a new fate. She meets good people, has new experiences and opportunities, and gains courage. It’s a story where she changes her gloomy fate into one that is sparkling.”

“Kang Ji-won is a character who has low self-esteem, is warm-hearted, kind, and not independent. She’s a person who has had a lot stolen from her,” Park Min-young shared. It’ll be cathartic to see Ji-won embrace her new lease on life. In fact, it can provide inspiration for viewers who wish to change their fates as well. 

5. Get ready for a swoon-worthy romance

“Marry My Husband” may be a melodrama full of betrayal and revenge but there will be moments of sweet romance that we can look forward to. Park Min-young commented, “Ji-won never experienced receiving love so when she does, it feels overwhelming. She’s an extremely lonely person, so I was very happy that she was able to receive a lot of love.”

The romance will be all the more sweet when Ji-won receives love from those who support her, such as her first love Eun-ho as well as her latest love Ji-hyeok.

“Marry My Husband” is now streaming on Prime Video with new episodes every Monday and Tuesday.
