Wi Mae Ri is the cheerful, pragmatic daughter of a failed businessman who had grown used to being constantly on the move to escape from debtors. She becomes fast friends with the free-spirited indie singer Kang Moo Kyul when she nearly ran him over in a car. Meanwhile, her father Wi Dae Han is saved from his debtors by his old friend, Jung Suk, who had just returned from considerable success in the Japanese entertainment industry. Jung Suk, who had harboured a secret love for Mae Ri's mother, sets up a deal with Dae Han to have Mae Ri marry his son, Jung In. In a desperate attempt to escape this predicament, Mae Ri begs Moo Kyul to pose as her husband, and finds herself in even more trouble than before when her father proposes a 100-day period in which she has to divide her time equally between Moo Kyul and Jung In, after which she has to decide who to marry.

    Although many people say that this drama sucked, i have to say i LOVE IT SOOOO MUCH. Personally. it wasn't the story that kept me watching. I mean the idea is interesting ,but I've seen this situation before and it's obvious whats gonna happen as soon as you get introduced to all the characters. However if i stopped watching a drama just because it was predictable i wouldn't watch dramas period (especially romance dramas because most of them are predictable). The main reason i adore this drama is because of the character. how the actors interact with each other is exactly why i love it.The heroines determination is very admirable and the relationship between the heroin and the male leads (and her insane father) is what read more

    When I think of this drama, the thing I remember most fondly is the music. Mary Stayed Out All Night has a KILLER soundtrack! This is truly the first drama I watched where:

    A) I even noticed the music in a positive way, i.e., not thinking to myself, “I'm sick of hearing this song.”

    B) Halfway through, went desperately searching for the entire O.S.T.

    C) Found it and played it on repeat in my iPod for months.

    The sweet and thoughtful “I Will Promise You” was the first song to grab hold of me. Jang Geun Suk’s gentle crooning over the playful, melodic acoustic guitar chords reminds me of waking up on a rainy Saturday morning. You know, the kind of morning where you get up

  • In Delightful girl the lead male is engaged by his parents but holds a former love in his heart. in MaeRi the lead female is engaged by her father and holds a love in her heart. The are certainly different MaeRi has way more music, but Delightful Girl has a happier ending.

    Is no one going to mention her dad selling and beating her? Really?
    What about the emotional manipulation? Sexual assault? Stalking and kidnapping? Nobody? Anybody? Ok...
    • -winnie- Mar 14, 2014
      I actually don't remember any of that happening or maybe I blocked it from memory lol...I do know it's the worst drama I've watched and rated it a 3. Don't know why I didn't drop it when I should have but I was a newbie back then. We all make mistakes :)

    Moon Geun Young, she is wonderful! *_*
  • siracorn Jan 17, 2014
    hah, I dont know wassup with you k-drama fans but I feel like I cant find a single popular k-drama which you guys seem to like.
    Anywhooo, I like the first four episodes I've seen but I dont feel like its gonna be anything special.

    Good characters tho. I like all of them so far.

    I saw this last year but have only found this site so I have a lot to say about this drama hahaha. I absolutely loved it! It has to be by far my favorite Korean Drama and the song 'My bus' was so good I had to download it. It was predictable and I had mapped out the whole drama in the second episode but it was still enjoyable to watch.

    This always happens...the bad reviews I hear make me hesitant to watch the drama, but I end up watching anyway since I'm a fan of JGS, and then I end up loving the drama after all. LOL. I guess I'll just start watching dramas and forming my own opinions first instead of using reviews to decide for me. Anyways~ This drama was cute and very enjoyable! I had fun watching it and really liked listening to the music in it too.

    Such a cute drama.

    i didn't like this drama. at first it was okay, then i don't know what happened. it became boring
  • TAMAREXXE Nov 20, 2013
    I'm liking this drama so far. Big fan of JGS he is amazing. I'm hoping that Maeri ends up with Kang Moo Kyul, because I frankly don't find Kim Jae Wook attractive.

    Have reached episode 6 and frankly, my negative vibe towards the Maeri character is growing exponentially. Is she retarded? I mean seriously what 24 year old apart from severely mentally handicapped individuals acts that way? I don't know who to fault, Moon Geun Young or the director for letting her get away or perhaps forcing? her to take the part of a 24 year old and interpret it as a naive 14 year old? I get a vibe of Meg Ryan's early work, from Maeri's clothes, hairstyle, to her walk, it's all reminiscent of Meg's work in "Prelude to a Kiss".
