Review of Episodes 3 and 4 of Marry My Husband

Episodes 3 and 4 of Marry My Husband proved to be thrilling and engaging, as Kang Ji Won reclaimed her life step by step. The narrative allowed a deeper exploration of the characters associated with Ji Won, revealing intriguing dynamics. Park Min Hwan emerges as a caricature of a man, while Soo Min showcases masterful manipulation skills as she tries to take everything Ji Won owns. 

However, Ji Won, now well aware of the truth, is poised to orchestrate their downfall by pushing them into a marriage. Interestingly, even without Ji Won's interference, chance encounters, such as the post-reunion scene, bring Soo Min and Min Hwan together. Soo Min's manipulative nature becomes more evident, particularly during the high school reunion, where it is unveiled that she had falsely gaslighted everyone into bullying Kang Ji Won.

With Kang Ji Won now aware of the truth, she is ready to leverage Soo Min and Min Hwan's qualities against them to seek revenge. The unexpected plot twist of Ji Hyeok too, dying in an accident, and coming back to life adds an intriguing layer to the story. The revelation that the heart mark on Ji Hyeok's body is the same one Kang Ji Won's dad made suggests her father played a role in giving Ji Hyeok a second chance at life, mirroring what he did for his daughter.

The endearing scenes between Ji Hyeok and Ji Won are heartwarming as they slowly begin to confide in each other. Above all, it's gratifying to see Ji Won surrounded by positive people like Hee Yeon, Joo Ran, and more.


How are episodes 3 and 4 different from Webtoon?

The show introduces several changes to the storyline, including advancing the reunion and having Baek Eun Ho present at the event. Additionally, the impactful phone call Ji Won makes to Min Hwan to set the record straight adds a layer of depth to the plot. 

Na In Woo's portrayal of Ji Hyeok diverges from his Webtoon character, who was originally depicted as colder, more awkward, and reserved than his series counterpart. One significant change highlighted in this episode is the timing of Ji Hyeok's death and his coming back to life, which is presented earlier in the series compared to the Webtoon. Additionally, the circumstances of his death differ, with the series showing an accidental death, whereas in the Webtoon, he attempted suicide due to the heartbreak of Ji Won's death. Despite these variations, the changes add a distinct angle and depth to Ji Hyeok's character, making it enjoyable to watch.

In the K-drama, Ji Won is portrayed as more straightforward and reserved compared to the Webtoon, where she pretended to be friends with Soo Min to set a trap. Despite maintaining a friendship with Soo Min in the series, Ji Won frequently calls her out for her behavior, consistently taking a courageous stand against any wrongdoing. 


Marry My Husband Ep 3-4 acting performances

Park Min Young is excelling in her role as Kang Ji Won. The duality in her character, evident in flashbacks and the present, is a testament to her acting skills. Through Park Min Young’s amazing performance, we witness how much Kang Ji Won has grown from her past life to the present. Na In Woo is also doing an incredible job as Yoo Ji Hyeok—a cold guy who is only sweet to his crush. Na In Woo is pulling it off perfectly.

Lee Gikwang, as Eun Ho, brings sweetness and charm to his character, enhanced by his delightful Satoori accent. Lastly, Choi Gyu Ri is a true blessing on screen, playing the role of Ji Won's sweet and chaotic friend with a heart of gold. She consistently brings smiles to everyone's faces whenever she appears on screen.
