The webtoon-turned-drama Marry My Husband on tvN continues to steal hearts and shatter its own viewership records. Episode 6 delivered a sizzling 7.773% rating, marking the highest yet for the captivating “revenge” tale starring Park Min-young and Na In-woo.
Park Min-young portrays Kang Ji-won, a woman wronged. Ji-won navigates the treacherous waters of betrayal, her cheating husband (Lee Yi-kyung, the king of comedic timing from Welcome to Waikiki), and scheming best friend (Song Ha-yoon) while time traveling to get her perfect revenge.
The most recent episode also had ARMYs, the devoted fanbase of BTS, erupting in excitement as Ji-won and Ji-hyuk bond over their mutual love for BTS. Ji-won’s preference for “Dynamite” paired with Ji-hyuk’s soft spot for “Spring Day” struck a chord with the fandom. But their song choices threw the timeline into disarray. Supposedly stuck in 2013, Spring Day and Dynamite which were released in 2017 and 2020 respectively, shouldn’t exist. Because of the slip-up, they have outed themselves as time travelers.
It’s nice to see that despite facing a personal storm involving her ex-boyfriend’s legal troubles, Park Min-young’s latest project continues to find success. The 37-year-old actress recently confronted accusations of financial benefits stemming from her association with Kang Jong Hyun, currently entangled in charges of alleged embezzlement and market manipulation. While her agency admitted she received money in her bank account, they were adamant in saying that the money wasn’t for the actress.
While Marry My Husband continues to dominate the small screens, I hope that other dramas and webtoons exploring similar themes, such as Perfect Marriage Revenge, will also garner the recognition and love they rightfully deserve. As the drama unfolds, viewers eagerly await each episode, anticipating the next twist in this rollercoaster of emotions.
