A follow-up of sorts to the hit 2004 drama The Woman Who Wants to Marry
, this refreshing, breezy, entirely modern drama depicts the loves and friendships of three women as they each go through turning points in their lives. Comedic, witty, and addicting, The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry
is a little like a Korean take on Sex and the City
, and is led by a cast of appealing, charismatic actors.
Park Jin Hee, a film and drama star most recently seen as the female lead in hit drama Money War
(2007), takes the lead role as a woman unwilling to sacrifice her career for love. Wang Bit Na is her sophisticated, succesful best friend and Uhm Ji Won is a high school classmate whom she runs into by accident. Rising star Kim Bum (Boys Before Flowers
) rounds out the cast as a musician who falls for Jin Hee's older woman character.
Shin Young (played by Jin Hee) has never been able to find success in love after breaking up with her fiance for the sake of her career. When her latest boyfriend proposes, she gladly accepts - only to find him with another woman later that night. Giving up on love, she sees another woman screaming at her boyfriend for dumping her - Jung Da Jung (Uhm Ji Won), who is a top interpreter but naive and unskilled in love.
When the two realize they are old high school classmates, they quickly bond, and their trio is rounded out by Shin Young's best friend who is a successful restaurant consultant but jaded and cynical about love. With charming, stubborn gifted musician Ha Min Jae (Kim Bum) falling for Shin Young and doctor Na Ban Suk (Choi Chul Ho) becoming involved in all their lives, sparks begin to fly, and the women will need each other's help and support as they face the 30-something life with wit, humor, and sometimes something less than grace.
