Han Groo in Marriage Not Dating

Marriage, Not Dating (Hangul: 연애 말고 결혼; RR: Yeonae Malgo Gyeolhon) is a 2014 South Korean television series starring Yeon Woo-jin, Han Groo, Jeong Jinwoon, Han Sunhwa, Heo Jung-min, and Yoon So-hee. It aired on tvN from July 4 to August 23, 2014 on Fridays and Saturdays at 20:40 for 16 episodes.

With the plot: Wealthy plastic surgeon Gong Gi-tae has no interest in getting married; marriage is all shop girl Joo Jang-mi dreams about. In an effort to get his parents off his back about the constant string of blind dates and marriage prospects, Gi-tae purposely brings Jang-mi home to meet his parents posing as his girlfriend, certain that they’ll never approve of her. This romantic comedy portrays a man who doesn’t want to get married, and a woman who has no luck with potential marriage prospects.

A 29-year-old girl who earnestly believes in true love despite her countless failures in previous relationships. As an employee at a luxury brand shop, she is surrounded by luxury products, but has none of her own.

Actor Yeon Woo-jin and actress Han Groo talked about one another’s attractive traits during the press conference for their upcoming drama “Marriage over Love.”
During the conference held on June 26, the two actors were asked what they found charming about each other.

I think Han (is charming) because of her energy. She has a bright and optimistic personality and it helps (her) to work hard, too. Her real personality is very similar to her character in the drama,” Yeon said.

When I first saw Yeon, I thought he was very different from the drama’s character. However, as time passed by, I was able to see that he had the ability to express the character’s charm,” Han was quoted as saying.

The two actors were selected as main characters for the drama. Han plays Ju Jang-mi, a woman who wants to get married and Yeon plays Gong Ki-tae, who hates the idea of getting married.
