Written Preview for Episode 13 of Mary Stayed Out All Night

How shall I put this? I read Javabeans’ recap for episode 12 of Mary Stayed Out All Night (Marry Me, Mary!) yesterday, and I was planning to contend with her assertion that the drama had lost its mind. I wasn’t planning to use empirical evidence, but merely note that comparatively, it wasn’t all that nonsensical. Yeah, today I’m forever putting that argument aside. Guys, M3 has officially lost its mind! But you know what? I LOVE it! Because it’s suddenly decided to try out makjang AND take that double marriage into levels of cracktasticness hitherto never seen before. THIS, people, I gotta see to believe.

The written preview for episode 13 made my jaw drop, and then I started giggling like I was in a tickle fight. There is nothing anyone can say to convince me that this drama, which I love to pieces, has a semblance of rational plot or consistent character development anymore. But what it always had, and still has, is a love story between two people that I will defend to the death as being utterly romantic, sweet, and life-affirming to watch. I’m happy and feel satisfied to have decided to watch M3. If I have to put up with some crazy plot to get us to the finish, I am more than happy to do so.

Written Preview for Episode 13:

Mae Ri’s dad, after finding out the ring is a fake, angrily runs to Mu Gyul’s apartment. Mae Ri and Mu Gyul’s cohabitation is in danger of being discovered. The three of them commence a late night cat-and-mouse pursuit.

Even though Mae Ri’s dad suspects that Mae Ri is still seeing Mu Gyul, but under the circumstances, he decides to take a step back and just watch and see. Jung In, who is worried that their new living together marriage contract will be discovered, suggests that Mu Gyul also move into his house. Even though they all feel awkward and nervous, the three of them decide to move in together.

Jung In’s dad is announcing to the world about Jung In and Mae Ri’s upcoming wedding. Mae Ri is wearing her wedding gown and is with Jung In. Seeing this, Mu Gyul turns and leaves in frustration. Mae Ri goes to see Mu Gyul to try and deflate his anger. She runs into Mu Gyul’s mom, who asks that Mae Ri break up with Mu Gyul.

Jung In has discovered the real relationship between his father and Mae Ri’s mom, and he is very upset. Mae Ri, who doesn’t know the truth, finds herself feeling distant and awkward around Jung In, who is treating Mae Ri with coldness.

At the filming of the music video for the OST title song, Seo Jun cannot understand Mae Ri, who she thinks is continuing to carry on a romantic relationship with both Jung In and Mu Gyul.

During the filming, a prop tumbles down, and Mae Ri is in danger of being injured. At this time, Mu Gyul rushes towards Mae Ri and tightly pulls her into his arms……

My Thoughts:

Is there anything else to say? This plot development is beyond my wildest imagination. Seriously? We have a threesome now? I know it’s all innocent, but the new writer is really taking the ball and running with it. Rather than being bored, I’m giddy as a school girl waiting to see the insanity unfold. This new plot is crackier than Boys Before Flowers, and I love it so much more than when it happened in BBF.

Rather than watching Mae Ri, Jung In, and Mu Gyul mope for 6 more episodes, the new writer is creating forward momentum, however out-of-this-world it may seem. If I had to choose, I’m much happier with the latter.

    Oh, you’ve put it so succinctly my dear! It’s so serious over at javabeans. Albeit not commenting here all the time, I always hit your site first because your previews and your thoughts run parallel with mine. On with the craziness then! Kudos to your efforts! Love your work! Fighting!

  2. MMM_addicted says:

    Yeah, the plot has gone crazy… :))
    But I can understand why JI suggested to live together. After all that MG’s yesterday panting and hanging up the m/phone, it’s just safer for him to keep MG/e.t. his rival/ closer.:)

  3. Bubbles says:

    I stopped reading recaps from Dramabeans for quite some time now together with all the bad comments. I’m not letting all these negative comments influence a drama that I really enjoy and totally entertaining. I truely enjoy ockoala recaps together with comments from all the die-hard fans of MSOAN, this is really Christmas!!

  4. savageponies says:

    PLOT BE DAMMED! I love this drama with all my heart haha XD

    Maybe it’s because this drama has given us what dramas rarely do: the satisfaction of the main OTP actually being together and having a “normal” relationship (as normal as you can get in korean dramas anyway). They go on dates, snuggle, peck each other once in a while, spend entire episodes making gifts for each other, AND this has lasted more than one episode without some kind of ridiculous drama deterring them from their love.

    Sounds like a win to me.

    • erika says:

      yep yep..they give much episode of lovey dovey instead at the end of drama with just one episode of happy end..that’s boring..this is just love all the way

      • savageponies says:

        I also really like the fact that those two kids are at least reasonably old enough to think about marriage. The idea of them getting married is actually age appropriate unlike Playful kiss where the age was just something I couldn’t get used to.

        Both dramas have such good chemistry though that I can’t help but look past it haha~

      • Erika says:

        You know I haven’t watch Pk until now and can’t pull myself to download it,already seen taiwan n japanese vers,maybe later.so I can’t compare to it but I do agree that they think more than rush into getting married at that age.enjoy their life and be settle then married.though I would love it more if they show MG&MR marry at the end..hmm wonder what kind of weds party they will held.hmm.

  5. CaptiveChaos says:

    Awww… I really don’t like the idea of Jung In treating Ma Ri coldly. Makes me sad. 😦 The rest sounded fun though, so I really hope he gets out of his funk and back to crushing on Ma Ri ASAP.

  6. vorticella says:

    just speculation here
    * Did someone say before that JI’s mom was death or something? Maybe her death was related to MR’s mom. It could be in my wild imagination: even though JI’s dad was married to his mom, JI’s dad was still in love w/ MR’s Mom and hence did not treat JI’s mom correctly. This might lead to her painful death or whatever. (totally speculation here) => as a son, he might be resentful toward MR because it might have been her Mom that his mom was not treated right in his mind. In addition, remember: his Dad wanted him to get married w/ MR to “TAKE CARE OF MR” and really, his Dad has not thought about JI at all. Most people would like to have their sons got married with someone who can take care of their sons not the other way around.

    * On another note: I really think reading recap is a great way to get an idea of how things are. Each recapper does things differently and think differently. there isn’t a right or wrong answer. However, just read and not watch will not do the movie its justice because you never know when and how the writer injects his/her ideas about certain scene/reaction/emotion. Just my 2cents 🙂

    Enjoy everyone!!

    • erika says:

      no!!! JI’s mom perhaps divorce or something with his dad because when they show their childhood memory (MR and JI) JI called his mom asking she took him with her because he didn’t want to go to Japan..maybe his mom had enough because her husband keep longing for MR’s mom.

      • vorticella says:

        oh thank you for the correction ^_^ then maybe the divorce has something to do w/ it. maybe because of it -> he was growing up motherless.

        *my mind must have escaped me* 🙂

        if she’s still alive, do you think she will reappear? that would be interesting.

      • erika says:

        If she still alive but there’s no sign of it.and Ji never speak that his mother still alive or live some where…JI’s mom show up only going to hurt MR because a woman that must divorce her husband because she can’t stand being a replacement and not being respect as a wife then suddenly she see a replica of that woman in MR and his son married on paper with her daughter??see the potential danger for MR??

      • vorticella says:

        that might lead to potential extension (which I don’t foresee on coming through).

        But we don’t really know what JI finds out about MR’s mom and his dad’s past and the connection.

        Guess we will all have to wait until Monday to see how it pans out. 🙂

        I think if something happen to MR, MG would probably not stand there.

        The more I think about this, although both JI and MG growing up differently, both do lack mother affection and sense of securities. As much as I know more about how MG looks at things in life, for some reasons to me JI’s perspective is still a bit unclear.

        To me, on the surface, the drama’s plot might not be great, but come to think of it, I like the characters so much. Not just the chemistry, but also their personalities.

      • Erika says:

        Yep,you are right vorticella shi.the plot might flat but the great act by JGS,MGY,KJW that makes this chemistry comes alive.I’m sure they will wins best actor and actress next year,I mean geungeun couple

  7. karinna says:

    Ahhhh thank you so much for posting the written preview =) I love it!!! Especially this part:Mu Gyul rushes towards Mae Ri and tightly pulls her into his arms……


  8. WuSamDee says:

    Thanks for ep 13 preview 🙂 xoxo!

    I kinda agree that JI’s dad true love is MR’s mom but he get tangled wt JI’s mom…that’s why they are seperated when JI was 8? Evil daddy adores MR mom to the heaven that he wants JI to marry her and make her as real part of their family esp she’s a replica of her mom. I hope the ever reasonable JI will pass thru his emotional conflict. He can’t blame his dad for leaving his mom coz his m0m did not fight for him.

    Ok…pls dnt throw rocks on me. Seriously and realistically, I think MR is best suited wt JI and MG to SJ personality wise. I can’t blame loser dad to push MR to JI coz he knows how miserable MR and her mom wt him. First Love is not the be and end all.

    I just wish there’ll be a definite ending unlike BFF.

    • D says:

      i agree about First Love – as much as i want MG&MR to be together, im ok if MR end up with JI or neither. i hope new writer-shi will remember to resurrect my strong & resourceful MR.

      im trying not to be serious but small stuff really bugs me like i was a bit pained abt the princess act remarks on DB when MR didnot take the couch and insisted on the bed in ep 12. why not? sleeping on couch is not very comfortable, i rather fight for the bed, really…

      on another note, we only have 4 eps left. do you think the new writer-shi will have time to sneak in any resemblence of a boat scene?

      • Erika says:

        Agree.DB point something unreasonable to make MR looks bad.come on!when was it MR act bossy and princess?none!she always put everyone first than she can relax.it is obvious MR wants bed but she is not selfish because she offer to had another bed but MG said no room and its him carry her sheet to his bed and once again MR keep her innocent by not wanting in the same bed due prevent something that will lead her like MG ex’s.so the best way split the bed.I get the reason why she pouting when MG suggest they have a kiss to celebrate their first day living together.she knows what will this lead MG to..so this scene is good!love it because we can see how MR already act like a wife..pinpoint her hubby to do the house decoration.hehe

  9. claudinejoan says:

    hahah! i want to see some action. I don’t like it when Jung In interferes with the sweet sweet story of mae ri and mu gyul ..

  10. Christy says:

    OMG please fast forward Monday. I’m so giddy as hell for the next episode!!

  11. reverie says:

    (jaw dropped) they all living together??
    welcome polyandry!!!!! *laugh hard ~ it’ll be a new world trend, trust me! And who cares about the show loosing its mind? As long as we’re happy, that’s enough.

  12. Chamonix says:

    Exciting! Can’t wait for your full recap! Ty.

  13. ockoala says:

    Hi everyone,

    Just wanted to say thanks to all the new M3-fans who decided to join the party here at AKP. We love M3 and we love to have fun!

    However, I really like to encourage everyone to not be so critical of both Dramabeans recaps of this drama and the comments over there. I love JB and GF, and always get something substantive from reading their intelligent and thoughtful discourse on any drama, even with M3 when my views are pretty far apart from theirs. JB and GF take the time and effort to recap a drama, and that should always be appreciated even if they don’t evidence the same level of enjoyment or excitement about a particular drama as you or I.

    I am surprised at how many commenters at the DB recaps seem to find the time and need to post a comment about how much M3 sucks or how much they hate it – it’s like M3 threw their puppy out of the car or the like. But that is their prerogative, and it hardly dampens my enjoyment, and shouldn’t with yours.

    Let’s just be happy here, and appreciate that there are diverging opinions (here and elsewhere), and that we’ve managed to find a group of people who all enjoy M3 and want to talk about it~

    I feel blessed everyday that so many people enjoy hanging out here, and enjoy my recaps and other posts. It’s been an honor and a pleasure. 🙂

    • reverie says:

      agree…. we have the freedom to choose *toast to all who choose to have a good time. Thank you again for your hard work, Softy

  14. Joey says:

    Looking at the comments posted here, I feel it’s kind of a pity that the plot development of MSOAN had been left floundering for a few episodes before picking up to speed again in ep 11. Judging from the speculations and thoughts of you all on how the story can progress from here (eg. introduction of JI’s mom, MG possibly being the illegitimate son etc.), the drama had the potential to give a deeper insight to what had happened in the past to give us a clearer picture on why some characters are the way they are. We see characters like SJ, and the parents of the 3 leads behaving the way they are, but never having the full picture of why is this so, which unfortunately makes them pretty unsympathetic characters in the viewer’s eyes.

    On a side note, I am truly impressed and amazed by all the creative juices flowing here 🙂

  15. Jnt1024 says:

    Ockoala…i will never doubt ur wisdom ever again!! I guess chanting ur deepest wish does come true!!!! I tried it…I chanted….”Please have Maeri, Mugyul and Jungin move in together!”….and it worked! LOL I love this new development!

  16. staying up late says:

    Reading the preview of ep 13 makes me feel sad for MG/JGS.

    1) Obviously it is to JI’s benefit to keep MG & MR within his range of vision after the heavy breathing he heard over the telephone whilst talking to MG earlier.

    2) Imagine how disheartening it is for MG to have to stay with his girl MR under the roof of his competitor JI.

    3) MG probably agreed to do so for the sake of MR because he didn’t want her to suffer the cold at his place and the frequent running, hiding and going back and forth due to her dad’s intrusions.

    4) Being in JI’s house will drive home even harder the disparity in standard of living for MR seen in MG’s eyes. Who wouldn’t think that “MR would be better off living with JI”? But in fact that luxurious living actually comes with strings attached ie no freedom.

    5) Watching MR put on a wedding gown with JI is like MG seeing his beloved girl married off to someone else. Another case of extreme hurt and abandonment.

    6) MG rushing to cover MR under falling props. What if his hands got hurt and he could never play the guitar again?!!! I hope the writer would not do such a terrible thing. How much more do they have to disadvantage MG before they can call it quits?

    As it is, choose JI, MR will have a dotting father-in-law, happy father, luxurious living and handsome (as swooned by all the JI fans) husband. Choose MG, MR will have a father who threatens suicide, horrible mother-in-law always asking for money and disloyal to her own son, cold apartment and MG friends who are critical of his evolving music style but yet not willing to even put him up for one night when MG used all his money to pay off the Manager’s contract in ep 1. How can such a battered down guy like MG still be expected to hold on to his one true love? Hardly seems like fair deal to me. Writer needs to give MG a break!

    I like MG as he is. He is talented, intelligent, works with passion and lives with integrity. I think he is worthy of MR in every aspect, his desire to care for her, his priority of her before himself and his ability to stand on his own two feet.

    For die hards who absolutely must see MG come with some wealth before justifying MR being with him consider this: WHAT IF MG’s grandfather ie mother side is a chaebol? (I would much prefer this than MG being JS’s illegitimate son. No one should be JS’s son, other than the wealth he is not a good father to have.) That would explain MG’s mom’s self-centred, irresponsible and totally undomesticated behaviour. Because grandfather is wealthy, abortion or giving up for adoption was not an option for 17 year old mom. Besides which relative would be so kind as to bring MG up when mom has no money? MG also never really cares about money or success and he never seems impressed or threatened by JI’s wealth and status. The most fun about this story line is when one day a huge limousine draws up to MG’s home and butler says “its time to go home, young master.” Then in the next frame we see a beautiful mansion with sprawling grounds. JGS in a conventional hair style and european suit is more than debonaire!

    The above WHAT IF is just for fun. Regardless of wealthy relatives or not, MR will be happy with MG and she can live the life that she desires. They simply have to be together with love and loyalty right up till the end and forever.

  17. rory's mom says:

    I really enjoy reading this blog and all the different opinions. I decided to read DB (power of advertisement) to see what the hubabub was about and I kind of agreed with their assessment of the lunacy that is the slapstick. Come on now, you would lock the door wouldn’t you?
    I have enjoyed this drama from the beginning but it also has caused me pain.
    In an early episode JI spoke to his mom on phone. She is alive. Boys over Flowers was the reason I got into Kdramas but that ending sucked big time so I sought others. I have yet to see a true happily ever after ending. The Woman who still wants to get married maybe came close.
    I foresee Maeri with amnesia and realizing (at the concert) in the last episode after having married JI that the cool guy on stage is someone she is attracted to and then JI escorting her out with MG just looking on with tears in his eyes. In Your Beautiful, the girl still goes to Africa and they just promise to be together someday. Cinderella’s Stepsister was just that about the two of them so they hugged and daddy ghost holding both of them but it wasn’t clear that she stayed with the boy.
    Koala I am going to miss you after MSOAN is done cause it will be my last drama. I have enjoyed your writing.

    • Erika says:

      True.kdrama rarely gives a clear ending that the otp is having together forever happy so I hope this one will give that!why this would be your last kdrama?I haven’t got really good drama with happy ending since goong because they end up have real marriage.hope this one will.

      • rory's mom says:

        Dramas are for entertainment and should be enjoyable after that hard real world day you just had, but when your entertainment causes you more pain then it no longer is entertainment. I don’t own a television for the same reason. I choose my entertainment carefully and I thought this one was fun at first.

      • Erika says:

        At mom.thats true.we need entertaiment in kdramas thats why I avoid sad drama That will only make me more depress but funny is those ajumas in Korea love it.this I love so much,so much crack to lol bout.ah I don’t watch kdramas on tv ’coz they rarely play it.so I buy the dvd/watch online.its more up to date.

    • Jnt1024 says:

      Awww…Rory’s Mom…don’t give up on Kdramas! It’s like giving up on finding true love! U know what they say…u have to kiss a lot of frogs to find ur prince 🙂
      I must admit that I get a bit depressed whenever my Kdramas end…sometimes due to the endings and at other times it’s just plain separation anxiety…but its just like whenever a relationship ends…it hurts for a while but then u find someone new and the magic happens all over again 🙂

    • summer says:

      hmmm…when you lock the door from the inside, wouldn’t it be obvious that somebody’s at home hence MG is avoiding MR’s dad? I think that’s the only logical reason why they have to get out and hide in the dumpster.

    I really hope that this isn’t the amnesia plot rearing its ugly head.

  20. bambilay says:

    There should be a “LIKE” button here like the FB. Clicked like for all comments for this drama and MuGyul ~ Maeri.

  21. yellowona says:

    Ha ha ha… I love reading the comments! Anticipating Monday are we? Keep it up people.

  22. mellowyel says:

    oh. my. goodness. i can’t even – they ALL LIVE TOGETHER? this is crazy, but i’ll be watching like the M3 addict I am.

    So glad that FINALLY the whole “my dad was in love with your mom” thing is coming out into the open. I can’t wait for devil daddy to be exposed for his creepiness.

    This comment probably fits better on one of your recaps, but I’ll say it here: I definitely agree with you that the show seems to be taking things back to the way the drama should have been before it veered off track. It’s sad that to fix a nonsensical plot, you need more nonsensical plot points, but that’s how it is.

    I will be real here: on blogs the comments will be influenced by the bloggers’ opinions. If on Dramabeans the comments are negative (I haven’t been able to read them) it’s likely because JB and GF are simply applying their usual critical eye to the drama. We won’t all agree with them – there are still Cinderella’s Sister’s fans out there, ya know (another drama they’re not fans of) – but you know, we don’t have to. i’m glad that i have this blog to spazz over M3 and ignore it’s shortcomings 🙂

    alright, I’m going back to the ep. 12 recap to spout my intellectual musings on the drama 😀 thanks for everything ockoala! it’s definitely appreciated 🙂

  23. minnnie says:

    If anything happened to mary,i wont forgive mu gyul….

    • summer says:

      “Mu Gyul rushes towards Mae Ri and tightly pulls her into his arms…”

      You must have read it wrong. MG will save MR! awww love 🙂

  24. apple says:

    .i cant wait…….. JUNG IN and MAE RI looks cute together…they have chemistry…(only my opinion) :P..

  25. Suvanna says:

    Well! episode 15 shows Mary start using her wisdom after hearing the words from MG ex-girl friend the rocker who sincerely love, sacrificed and care for him.

    Mary is such a lucky girl who had an uncle that sincere care and love her mother.

    The uncle extend the love and care to Mary. He also teach her have mind to understand that his father care for her whenever she failed to take care herself. He is teaching her to be filial to her father and not following her emotion only.

    JI who love, care and will protect her at whatsoever situation forever.

    She is lucky, have amper love from father but he is poor.

    Finally! we see how the writer write this lucky girl next path.

  26. Suvanna says:

    This drama show life of a rocker, a playboy able to ignored feeling of ex-girl friend even though had sacrificed so much for him, love him and care for him.

    They have no sorry for ex-girl and go after new girl even though knowing can not provide appropriate life for her. He will entertain himself and have fun with the girl.

    One day if he feel tired either party may just say bye!

    This is modern life or love without responsibility display by the drama.

    I think this is happening but Mary was not display as a girl have no responsibility for herself from the start.

    Now she looks like a blind that trap in the life can not see future.

    She do not realised that her life is easy after meeting Jung In who has a father that paid his debt and provide her good job else he life is mess. She paid back their goodness by sleeping and kissing with a rocker.

    What is her next path … let see what the writer do …..
