First Stills and Video From the Mary Open Shoot Day at Hongdae – It’s a Concert!

[Edit: I’ve embedded the fan videos of the band performing “Hello Hello” and “Take Care, My Bus”]

I didn’t want to insert my perspective into everyone’s comments and speculations (you guys were having a party with the theories), but I was really positive that Mary Stayed Out All Night (Marry Me, Mary!) wasn’t going to have anmesia, life-threatening injury, or anything of the like with respect to a minor prop accident. Looks like my guess was correct, since the open shoot day at Hongdae yesterday was a Wonderful Day concert helmed by Absolute Mu Gyul, with the main cast all in attendance. The pictures are about 99% Mu Gyul, but I see nothing wrong with that emphasis since performing Jang Geun Seok is super rawr Jang Geun Seok to me. The poster above is the drama poster for Wonderful Day.

Apparently Mu Gyul sang “Hello, Hello” at this concert, and the lucky fans who were in attendance claims that there was a public love declaration from Mu Gyul to Mae Ri at the end. I know its got shades of the ending to You’re Beautiful (which I can see based on the venue, but the circumstances between the OTP being very different). At this point, I’ve given up recommending or defending M3 as a quality drama to anyone, and simply want to sit back and enjoy the rest of the ride.

The cast and crew of M3 are really working day and night to bring this production to a close. This scene is likely to be aired on December 21, based on the date on the Wonderful Day poster.

I love how this drama is going back to showcasing its musical background, and having a concert again, since the first concert where Mu Gyul and Mae Ri met was a lot of fun for me to watch. I’ll be sad when M3 ends, but happy that it found its way at the very end.

  2. zure says:

  3. Kristal says:

    As much as I’m not really enjoying this drama anymore, I would totally have been a screaming fangirl at this shoot. Heh. A screaming fangirl at the age of 27…what is my life coming to?! Damn that JGS for winning me over with his curly, perfectly placed locks and MGY with her cute boho-hobo look!

    • Kristal says:

      Seo Jun looks pissed as usual…so annoying…heh

    • angelika says:

      haha.. im 30+++ so that’s probably even more awkward… with me screaming louder than you. haha

      • Erika says:

        I’m almost 30 but who cares!lets scream together so we wont be awkward anymore

      • sarangf says:

        im 30 soon so count me in will you. i’m sreaming at the screen as MG sang Hello hello even thought i only know afeww word.

      • erika says:

        @sarangf, antonia, koyangi and angelica..lets we all rocks and screaming and headbang together..hahahaha this kind of drama that make us young forever

      • Ivy says:

        ha, age is no barrier to wonderful music and dream guys *wink*

    • koyangi says:

      bwahahaha i’m almost forty and am the loudest, count me in gals 🙂

    • camelotprincess says:

      Believe me, i am more worse…I am 30 plus and I attended the JGS FM in Singapore…I thought I was going to be there watching quietly and just you know, act mature than the younger ones. I found myself squeeing like crazy when JGS sang and screaming when he danced SexyBack….it’s just recent that I accepted that I am a crazy noona or ahjumma when it comes to JGS, esp when singing hehehe

    • Reiven says:

      I’m 25. We can all have an oldies screaming party 😀 After all, one can never be too old for the perfection that is Jang Geun Suk as Mugyul.

      • Kristal says:

        We can form our own ahjumma rock band like that show I Am Legend (not that I watched it) and be his opening act! LOL

        Of course, I don’t speak Korean and am about as white as a white girl can get but oh well I can play the tamborine or something and do the Mary hippie dance.

  4. Erika says:

    Huaa although it have similiar scene to YAB but since it will be not on the last ep so I’m okay at least now everyone can back the hell out after MG declaration esp SJ.wish the 2worst dad watch it.although everybody giving up with this drama,I don’t!will enjoy it till the end because its near the ending.excited

  5. traviata says:

    Just now I’ve seen the fancam video on youtube of JGS perfoming as KMG “Hello, Hello” at the Hongdae concert shoot and it is freaking AWESOME!!!
    I CAN’T WAIT!!!

  6. lizzyd says:

    Yes, I squealed inappropriately over the “MERRY CHRISTMAS I LOVE YOU” shout-out and then again when he accidentally almost knocked over the microphone stand. Heehee

  7. estel says:

    ~mourns~ Where’s my real-life Mu-gyul? Holy moly, JGS is hot!

  8. Francesca says:

    Thanks Ockoala for all the information about M3…No matter what the ending will be, I will support M3 with all my heart…I really enjoyed every moment of M3 especially with the help of your recaps…

    Have a Merry Christmas, Ockoala and more power to your blog site…

  9. WuSamDee says:

    Uhmm….I’m 40. I will not scream but I’ll jump to glee 🙂

    I wish I will have a son like JGS….got the looks, tall and talented.

    I really wish there will be a definite ending on this drama…..MR and JI!!!

  10. vorticella says:

    ah..this definitely reminds me of YAB….
    On a different note: I hope things are not going be a big mess tomorrow since S. Korean plans to have artillery drill…(besides the possible attack, will MSOAN be delayed?)…

    Stay safe everyone…

  11. ncneo says:

    if this airs on 21st Dec, I’m gonna die….

  12. sandi says:

    I like this post about M3 and we are getting happy ending…..
    As u said ending will be similar to “u are handsome”….
    But, I love it….
    U made my day, Ockoala….
    Thanks for your great work as usual.

  13. dangermousie says:

    Ehhh, YAB stole the scene from A Star in My Heart (OMG, how I loved that drama!) so it’s all good. Anyone watching M3 for originality must not have seen any drama…ever.

    But cliche as it may be, I just love the vibe and the chemistry and the way it makes me feel so happy no matter how glum I may have been right before I started the ep.

    I am 32 and I am not ashamed to be a sad sad sad fangirl for this teenybopper drama 😛

    • green-carnation says:

      Agree. A star in my heart was my first impress with the concert love declaration and I love its OST very much.
      I’ve just passed my 30 heh…Not ashamed at all…happy when there’re lots of +/-30 fangirls here hehehe

  14. minnnie says:

    something like “you’re beautiful” ending?that is not good idea for me…but still love m3 🙂

  15. Susan says:

    kekekekekeke glad to know i am not alone 😀
    a noona crush on jgs hahahaha

  16. YesungBiased says:

    The song was great.
    and LOL @ those Kim Jae Wook pictures. those facial expressions hahaha

  17. rory's mom says:

    Ladies, we are women/sexual beings until we die. The guy is Gorgeous and his voice alone melts my heart.

  18. pach says:

    MM ship is nearly land in my heart I am 100% support them MM..
    Christmas and New year is almost arrive so I don’t like to watch anything so tearly I want to start a Year 2011 with lots of love, joy and big smile on my face..and here I found M3 so I can say M3 is my fav drama of 2010!!
    M3 I love you

  19. shiro says:

    Darn, this hello hello thank thank you keeps repeating in my head. I don’t think I can work on anything else today but counting hours… lolz
    And I LOVE that pic of him biting the guitar pick. GORGEOUS!! <3<3
    Maybe hearing MuGyul said saranghanda (and in public to boot) for the first time would wake SJ up from her delusion and made her finally give him up. *one can only hope*

    So happy to be in this playground with like-mind people (read: fangirl) here, so thanks to our MM president for providing the venue… ^O^

    • erika says:

      That was on my mind since SJ watch it and MG’s declaration will finally snap her crazy mind…

    • moom says:

      shiro.. did you see him give a wink at the end of ‘hello, hello’ at abt 3:53 mark…GORGEOUS 😛

      • Erika says:

        Mom-> I do notice the wink.oh thats cute,I will think he do that to MR.I hope in ep14 they show it and then camera goes to MR

      • shiro says:

        yes!! My heart literally stopped when he did LOLZ *I think my heart stopped too many times where he’s concerned… ^O^ *

        I’m in my 30s too… and look what Suk did to me. My passport had many more stamps on it because of him… *hides*

  20. momosan says:

    Pffft, as I tell the kid – I’m old, not dead.

    Anyway, can I say how much I LOVE that jacket JGS is wearing? In fact, the one Binnie was wearing in today’s SG was lovely as well.

  21. anne says:

    ooohhh I cant wait until tonight..and Kang Mu Gyul is so HOT

  22. loving the stills :] i can’t wait to see how
    everything turns out . it’s the home stretch

  23. cinderella says:

    My fave pics are the one with Kim Jae-wook! I really loved Kim Jae-wook’s role in Coffee Prince and was kind of meh!-ed at his performance in Antique Bakery… And was absolutely against him in Bad Guy (I’m also a Shin Gun-wook/Kim Nam-gil fan)… But I absolutely adore him in Mary Stayed Out All Night since he’s back to that dorkibly adorable role!

    Needless to say, I’m a Mae-ri/Jung-in shipper. Personally, I don’t find Jang Geun-seok “hot” or anything along those lines since he looks like a girl… and he’s proud of it…

  24. ockoala says:


    This is the hottest I have ever seen Jang Geun Seok, and he’s pretty much always hot to me when he’s in character. This entire get up and his performance takes my breath away.

    @momosan – agreed! That military inspired jacket is TO DIE FOR on him. W.O.W. I’m just glad the new writer is letting everyone just have fun for the last few episodes, as much as possible, of course.

    And yes, I am also in my early thirties, and completely unashamed to be fangirling Kang Mu Gyul. Whatever, if there is a place in hell for me for being a member of ICOMYM, I know I will have great gals to keep me company on the walk there.

    I love “Hello, Hello”. It’s neither indie nor rock, but what the heck, its cute and catchy.

    • erika says:

      wonder if MR going to dance again at hello hello…after watching her dance on take care, my bus live, whenever I hear that song I always end up picturing MR dance..

    • viv says:

      OMG, i’m so happy to find this forum.. thought i’m going crazy for drooooling over Kang Mu Gyul in my 30++ …. but he’s just too hot to leave on…..

  25. summer says:

    Did MR went up the stage? Did she wiggle dance again? 🙂

    Thanks for the update Koala! Your blog has been a nest for MSOAN lovers like me! It’s a relief to read positive and happy comments about this Kdrama 🙂

  26. miso says:

    eeeeee! Agreed. So. Dreamy. JGS singing in the military jacket. :::swooon:::: I just love it when that he sings. His attractiveness ignites

  27. Christy says:

    Somebody peel me off the floor please. JKS is so swoon worthy!!

  28. Larkspur says:

    OMG. I totally agree with you Ockoala!!! Mu Gyul looks soooo freakin’ hot here, by gaw!!!

  29. sarah says:

    Just asking, after I watched hello hello many times I really want t find out the complete lyrics of the song? Anyone? Thanks… And by the way I’m 40 and still liking this drama and I like that boy JGS…like momosan said .. I’m old but not dead… 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • moom says:

      wahahaha sarah.. you killed me.. ‘old but not dead’ that statement…i’m a proud member of the ICOMYM club 🙂

      JKS’s stage performance as a rock star/singer has definitely improved since YAB.. he totally rocks it now.. that boy really has charisma…

      • Christy says:

        Oh my goodness, JGS’s stage presence is amazing!! He is just in his element in this indie rock persona. Swoon..we’re all putty in his hands!

        This is the best JKS yet. I so love his hair and MSOAN this is my fave drama of the year!!

  30. anne says:

    hello hello thank you thank you… that song

  31. Joey says:

    Squeeeee …. I’m also 30+ but I’m swooning like crazy … and the song Hello Hello sounds great, the love declaration to his Merry Christmas 🙂

    On a side note, SJ seems to look pretty defeated in that shot … guess by now she realises who MG really loves the most

  32. Joey says:

    Ermmmm, I may have missed something … but what does ICOMYM mean? 🙂

  33. Reiven says:

    I’m going to refrain from watching either of the two videos. I’ll be saving all my ooooh’s and aaaaah’s and aaaaaw’s for the actual episode. But holy shit Jang Geun Suk! Like practically everyone had been saying here, I find Jang Geun Suk extremely gorgeous really at any given time (even in some of the atrocities he wears irl) but there’s just something about Kang Mugyul… Perfect Mugyul indeed.

    I watch more Jdrama’s than Kdrama’s, but there’s just something about Mary that agree’s with me. It may not be the perfect drama. It may not make sense, but…Maeri and Mugyul are undoubtedly the IT couple of 2010. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year will never mean the same to me again.

    And thank you Ockoala for being absolutely gorgeous and amazing and being a constant Mary goddess!

  34. Francesca says:

    I really love Jang Geun Suk, his handsome face and deep sexy voice…I am in my late 30’s but still acting like my highschool daughters screaming for KANG MU GYUL…Me and my teenage daughters are proud fans of JGS…

  35. D says:

    how i wish i was part of the crowd – the song hello hello is soo sweet and warm? but if it’s made any slower and less cheerful it can be a teary ballad?

  36. staying up late says:

    Definitely in the more matured age group here and similarly cheering happily for JGS’s performance onstage. Love him because he emits such a warm and all encompassing personality, answering with much thought, sincerity and humour to many of his interviews. Needless to say, acting (and singing) is also greatly up to mark! Asked my lovely six-turning-seven year old whether she would like to be called Jang Geun Suk since they share the same family name Jang. Smart cookie said “No”. She even teases her mom by saying “look its JGS!”, expecting me to turn around and be wowed. Asked if I am a fan?

  37. Ivy says:

    many thanks, koala, for the clear videos (as clear as fancam can get!).
    i’ve already downloaded them from YT so they can sustain me until i get my hands on the OST or Ep!

    And “Hello Hello” is a very nice song!!

  38. scha says:

    I’ve put Ockoala’s page as Bookmark Toolbar, that I’ve always refresh this page every 10minutes..I’ve go to Ockoala’s page first before i log in to Facebook..Ockoala have been my num 1 !

    i don’t think thank you is enough to give it to you..
    Your update is marvelous, and make me happy all weeks long in waiting for M3 episodes being aired.. for God sake, I’d thank you A LOT !!!!!

  39. Ami says:

    Jang Geun Suk has a thing for playing characters involved with music (Beethoven Virus, You’re Beautiful, Mary Stayed Out All Night, Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do) and out of those… he’s declared his love for to the girl in 3 out of 4 stories. The amazing thing about it is he can get away with this repeat formula simply by being too awesome in his performance in every single character. I just can’t fault his delivery in any of his works.

    That said.. I think the one that really gets to me is Mu Gyul. I dunno what works with him… I just completely go berserk whenever I see Mu Gyul in action. Now, every time I see a stray cat (I mean, a real cat.. not a pretty hobo) in my neighbourhood.. I shout to it.. “Mu Gyul!!!” hahaha… I’m mad.
