Park Min Young is brilliant in the new revenge thriller "Marry My Husband"!

Brilliant! Just brilliant! Park Min Young is back and looks more dedicated than ever in her new revenge thriller Marry My Husband! We break down what we mean by being "dedicated" and why her new show should be at the top of your 2024 K-drama playlist!


After finding out that she has stage 4 gastric cancer with only 6 months to live Kang Ji Won's (Park Min Young What's Wrong With Secretary Kim 2018) life gets even worse. Her husband, Park Min Hwan (Lee Yi Kyung Curtain Call 2023), and mother-in-law treat her like a doormat and do not respect her as a woman. Being the sole breadwinner of the house, Ji Won has to take care of her unemployed husband's debts as well.

To make matters worse, Park Min Hwan cheats on Kang Ji Won with her best friend, Jung Soo Min (Song Ha Yoon Oh! Young-sim 2023). Ji Won goes home one day to see her husband and her best friend in bed together. Kang Ji Won overhears her husband telling Soo Min that if Ji Won passes away, he will get a bump lump sum inheritance and both have already started talking about their plans after Ji Won dies. After a heated argument, Min Hwan pushes Ji Won away from Soo Min and Ji Won lands on the living room glass table hitting her head and instantly killing her. She didn't even make it to six months before she died.

Ji Won wakes up one day, 10 years earlier, while she is still dating Park Min Hwan. They work in the same office at U & K Food. Their general manager, Yoo Ji Hyeok (Na In Woo Longing for You 2023), has feelings for Ji Won but is hiding a secret. Not wanting to repeat the same tragic future, she decides to make Jung Soo Min marry Min Hwan.

If this storyline isn't enough to convince you to watch the show, here are three reasons why we think you might fall in love with it!

1. Park Min Young's unbelievable weight loss!

Park Min Young's dramatic weight loss has us lost for words! Being already small in stature, Park Min Young lost 37 (82 lbs) kilos for her new role as a cancer patient. Park Min Young has been known to have popular diet plans for her multiple roles in movies and dramas, but you should definitely consult a physician first before following one of her.

We could definitely see the differences in weight on her face and in her neck as she looks visibly weak throughout the show. We give her mad props for staying dedicated to her craft!

2. If you like Song Joong Ki's Reborn Rich, you'll love this!

The characters are put in similar situations as in Song Joong Ki's "Reborn Rich" (left)

Reminiscent of Song Joong Ki's Reborn Rich, Marry My Husband draws hits from the previous drama by putting Park Min Young's character in similar situations. For example, back in 2013 at her old job, Kang Ji Won was faced with buying and selling stocks that her then-boyfriend, Park Min Hwan, used to pay her back. With full knowledge of the future, she can use what she knows to her advantage to change her past! We all love a good revenge thriller!

3. We ship Kang Ji Won and Yoo Ji Hyeok's budding relationship!

Starting a little rigid and awkward, Ji Won's relationship with her boss, Ji Hyeok, is of course, on the rocks and a little goofy. But, being the fine gentleman that he is, Ji Hyeok seems to always be there to save Ji Won whenever she needs help! The ultimate K-drama love interest! Ji Hyeok is also a very large man (Na In Woo measures in at 189 cm or about 6 feet 2 inches) so naturally, he looks more like her bodyguard. Haha! Regardless, we can't wait to see how Ji Hyeok fits into Ji Won's revenge plan!

Marry My Husband premiered on January 1, 2024, and airs on Monday and Tuesday nights at 8:50 on tvN. The show has garnered 1st place in viewership ratings, according to Nielsen Korea, with 5.211% and 5.891% for episodes 1 and 2 respectively.
