MARY STAYED OUT ALL NIGHT (2010)

Wi Mae-ri (Moon Geun-young) is the cheerful, pragmatic daughter of a failed businessman who had grown used to being constantly on the move to escape from debtors. She becomes fast friends with the free-spirited indie singer Kang Mu-gyul (Jang Keun-suk) when she nearly ran him over in a car. Meanwhile, her father Wi Dae-han (Park Sang-myun) is saved from his debtors by his old friend, Jung-suk (Park Joon-gyu), who had just returned from considerable success in the Japanese entertainment industry. Jung-suk, who had harbored a secret love for Mae-ri’s mother, sets up a deal with Dae-han to have Mae-ri marry his son, Jung-in (Kim Jae-wook). In her desperation to escape this predicament, Mae-ri begs Mu-gyul to pose as her husband, and finds herself in even more trouble than before when her father proposes a 100-day period in which she has to divide her time equally between Mu-gyul and Jung-in, after which she has to decide who to marry.

I just finish watching the episode 1 -3 and it’s quite charming. Jang Keun-suk and Moon Geun-young chemistry is great, the tone is uplifting and the rate is cheerful. I can’t wait to know how everything will turn out. Special mention to Jang Keun-suk who is ridiculously adorable with his smiles and acting!

IMAGES PREVIEWS:

Mae-ri’s father – a troubled-failed businessman, who digs himself into deeper debt.

When the debt collectors collected their household belongings, Mary secured only her television, to which she turns as a source of avoidance and comfort.

KANG MU-GYUL (Jang Keun-suk) is a  talented, famous, free-spirited indie vocalist and guitarist of a rock local band.  His personality is quite complex. He grew up with no father, but had a mother  who is very flaky and undependable.

When Mary hits him with her friend’s car while driving in Hongdae neighborhood.

Ended up seeing Kang Mu-Gyul performing onstage after chasing him to make sure to settle the incident.

Trying to get Kang Mu-Gyul to sign the agreement, they just stick together both drank and sober.

I found myself grinning along with all of their cute and silly interactions especially when he kissed Mary “harry potter” scar.

 Kang Mu-Gyul is hilarious when he’s drunk and a typical baby who didn’t feel any warmth growing up, he gets to act like a little baby around Mary, who makes up for all the warmth he lost as a child.

Mary starting hanging out with Kang Mu-Gyul bandmates.

I loved their little “mung mung/miao = cat/dog” act. And everytime Kang Mu-Gyul called Mary a MERRY (Mary) CHRISTMAS!

When Mary and her friends  asked Kang Mu-Gyul to make a fake wedding photo shot with her, to send it to her Dad to cancel the arrange marriage with Byun Jung In.

Mu-gyul finds a text message on his phone from Mary, which he reads with boyish enjoyment and drunkenness.

“Sorry for yesterday, and thanks. You must’ve been tired because of me, so rest comfortably tonight. You aren’t off drinking after saying you wouldn’t, right?” (Here he mumbles, “I already did.”) “Don’t just insist you’re young, and take care of yourself. If you want to make music till you die, you have to be healthy. Bye. Mary Christmas! Meow.”

Which one is the most important between trust, hope and love? Loyalty.” – Mae Ri
