The replacement for tvN's late, lamented Shut Up Flower Boy Band
is the lighthearted romcom The Marriage Plot
. In a set-up more suited to a weekend family drama (not that this is a bad thing), the mother of four single daughters schemes to get them husbands via cohabitation (no, I have no idea how she convinces the individuals in question).
I am mainly tuning in for Lee Kyu Han, who I have been fangirling for years, finally landing a leading-man role (I think he's ridiculously underrated - he's got great chops and is super-hot. I honestly have no idea why he's not a bigger star). Plus, another of the four bachelors is played by the brilliant Lee Min Woo, who won my heart in The Princess' Man. I am not familiar with the three actress who play three secondary sisters, and am only barely familiar with the leading lady, Kang Hye Jung. I thought she was miscast in Miss Ripley, but that was a flawed (if interesting) drama, so I am willing to give her another chance. Plus, I believe in real life she's married to Tablo, so mad props to her for keeping her sanity with that whole lunatic diploma thing going on.
Have the official MV, sung by Kim Hyun Joong:
So cute! I am in!
