Park Min-young rejects Lee Yi-kyung in Please Marry My Husband
The first teaser has come out for tvN’s new revenge fantasy Please Marry My Husband, focusing on our central character played by Park Min-young (Love in Contract) and giving us the quick rundown on her backstory.
In a mockumentary style teaser akin to reality dating shows, we meet our heroine Kang Ji-won (Park Min-young) through an interview, where she announces that she will not select X – referring to her husband Lee Yi-kyung (Critical X).
In the captions, we read the interviewer’s next question: “What is the reason for your decision?” And a teary-eyed Ji-won reveals that, “I was murdered by my husband and my best friend.”
Flashing back to that terrible night, we see that Ji-won – who was battling cancer – had witnessed Park Min-hwan (Lee Yi-kyung) in bed with her so-called bestie Song Ha-yoon (Oh! Young-shim). A fight had then ensued, tragically ending with Ji-won breathing her last.
As the teaser comes to a close, Ji-won turns to face the camera with new resolve, and we know that this is just the beginning to our drama’s story. With the help of a magical little time-slip ten years into the past, our heroine will wake up to a time when she was not yet married – all her memories intact, of course. This means she will now be able to get her sweet, sweet revenge and choose a new path for her future – presumably including our leading man Na In-woo (Longing for You).
On the production side, directing for the webnovel adaptation is helmed by PD Park Won-gook (Poong, the Joseon Psychiatrist, Special Labor Inspector Jo), with scripts penned by Shin Yoo-dam (Awaken). Airing in tvN’s Monday-Tuesday slot, Please Marry My Husband will be kickstarting the new year with a January 1 premiere.
