He asks her to marry him, but Joo Young is tormented by his proposal and is terrified that Do Hyung will find out about her checkered past. After Joo Young makes up her mind to accept the marriage proposal, she suddenly disappears without a trace. When Do Hyung files a missing-person report with the police, officer Cha Yoon Mi is surprised to learn that Joo Young is someone she knows from her past but can’t offer much help to Do Hyung. When Do Hyung undertakes the search for Joo Young on his own, he is drawn into the shadowy underground world of gangsters and loan sharks. When Song Hak Soo, the leader of an underground crime syndicate who was recently released from prison, suddenly shows up dead, Do Hyung inexplicably becomes the prime suspect in the murders of Hak Soo and Joo Young, although she is still missing. With Yoon Mi and her partner, Park Hyung Shik, hot on his heels, can Do Hyung find Joo Young and clear his own name?

Cast & Credits
Helpful Hint: I found the first episode rather boring, the second episode ok, the third episode full of misunderstandings and then it gets good by episode 4 and you'll be completely hooked by episode 5!
"the heartbreaking, pure love by a man, who drives himself to the extreme situation in order to find his only love, his bride." <Pretty much describes the base of the drama - and it was presented in such a powerful and touching way! Thank you OCN!
Cast: Kim Do Hyung (Kim Mu Yeol) a man with a painful upbringing falls in love with a girl from his high school - they get separated and meet again, are about to get married and then she vanishes - he looks for her like any man would, finds himself messed up with the police and loan-sharks and something even more sinister behind the loan-sharks. I have never seen someone love as sincerely and as deeply as Kim Do Hyung does on this drama - it's powerful! It's a new definition of self-less love! He'd sacrifice and risk anything just to protect his "Beautiful Bride" - and man was this guy good at keeping a secret a secret! He was also in the UDT in the Marines for his military service - and I sure hope I get to see some more dramas with guys from that unit! B/c they know how to FIGHT! This guy wowed me several times with some of the things he'd do - I was stunned at things I saw - He was that good! And I loved how all the bad guys referred to him as "the bank guy" - I'd laugh whenever they'd say "the bank guy did that?" :P Yoon Joo Young/Joo Hee (Go Sung Hee) - not my favorite actress (she still needs practice) but she did pretty good in the beginning of the drama - towards the latter part I found her a bit annoying and she seemed to keep making stupid decisions (but that didn't ruin the drama for me). Cha Yoon Mi (Lee Shi Young) a great detective, who was a great partner in helping Do Hyung catch the bad guys and find Joo Young.
All other actors did well in their roles - especially Ryu Seung Soo as Seo Jin Ki - I knew he could play the bad guy role exceptionally well already - since he was the bad guy in drama special 'Sirius'.
Music: 'Stay' by Steelheart < My absolute favorite track off the entire drama!!! I love listening to it and singing it on repeat! <3 Awesome song! ^_^
I would definitely re-watch this drama if only to see those awesome action packed fight scenes again! ;) and the flashback romance stories were so romantic^^ <3
As a OCN serious project , (My Beautiful Bride) is surely one of the good ones but ... could be much better !
STORYLINE : 7.5 /10
A man who's totally in love with his fiance , suddenly loses her and through finding her , strange and interesting facts about him and his lover are revealed to the audiences.
The fact that he knows everything about her past but keeps acting like he doesn't have a clue , was meaningful and a brand new one to me !
BUT unfortunately the storyline losts the balance it had between action and romance as the story goes on and on ! The main idea was good but you can see it's not processed goodly specially as love story !
It feels like the writer just wants to sum up the couple's past and their complicated love-life at the few first Episodes , cause he/she insists on getting to the Action and Crime parts ASAP ! But the surprising and shocking fact is that the screenwriter of this drama (Yoo Sung Yeol) is the creator of the greatest action K-drama ever seen =&amp;amp;gt; CRUEL CITY !
I'm not saying that this drama IS NOT a sucess but who can compare it with (Cruel City) , U know !!!
ACTING : 8/10
(Kim Moo Yul) : After watching his unbeatable , incomparable and unique way of acting I was like : Where Have You Been ?! Lol ! It's such a pity that it was my first time enjoying his acting skills ! He truely shined ! and I wish he'll appear in more action dramas !
(Lee Si Young) : I mean what's with that character ?! You know sometimes you wanna punch a good actor/actress in face for choosing a pitiful role to play and maybe you punch the writer instead , for creating that kind of character ! Anyways ! Let's stop punching ! XD I really don't have any doubt about
her acting ! I've seen enough of her skills in (Divine Move) and (Killer Toon) action movies ! But hey that character was really a disaster !
(Ko Sung Hee) : thinking carefuly about her acting I don't think she was that bad but she wasn't good enough too ! I think she needs to learn more about natural kind of acting where you can find true emotions through someone's glance or even way of talking ! she couldn't goodly response to the feelings the first male lead sent to her ! (you know what I mean ) comparing to what we saw of her in SPY drama she has improved a lot but has got a long long way to go !
Other actings were also admirable ! thumbs up for them all !
MUSIC : 8/10
WOW ! I loved the unexampled soundtracks !!! And I loved that they were in English ! XD I didn't need to check the meaning anyway ! They really matched with the project.
REWATCH VALUE : 7/10
For director (Kim Cheol Kyu) , this is his first ever action drama (if I'm not mistaken) and as the first one ... let's give him a round of pleasure !
I liked the ending ! it wasn't very special but it was totally suitable .
As I mentioned the storyline isn't processed enough for the whole 16 episodes and it could be even more challenging and thrilling , for the audiences not to feel bored little by little !
Those action things were great and as good as they should be ! I really don't have any negative points to mention about fightings... e.t.c !
I don't have any plans for rewatching this now but maybe I'll give it a try later !
The drama style is my cup of tea , after all !
Thanks for reading my words ! Enjoy your action drama ;) XD
