After two weeks of airing, the K-drama “Marry My Husband” has achieved highly commendable successes. In particular, the drama has received high ratings, surpassing 6% in episode 3. It holds a prominent position on online streaming platforms and various popularity charts.
Viewers believe that the show has exceeded their expectations, proving to be outstanding and comparable to the original webtoon.
Aside from Park Min-young, who impresses strongly as the female lead Kang Ji-won, another actress has been stealing viewers’ hearts. She is none other than Choi Gyu-ri, who assumes the role of Yoo Hee-yeon.
According to the webtoon, Hee-yeon is the younger sister of the male lead, Yoo Ji-hyuk (played by Na In-woo), and so is Park Min-young’s “sister-in-law” in “Marry My Husband”. Despite being born to wealth, Hee-yeon leads a simple life, never flexing and would treat people the exact way they act towards her.
So far, the drama version of Hee-yeon has left viewers in awe, who expressed that they feel she “stepped right out of the webtoon”. With a cute appearance, lovable demeanor, and a radiant smile, Hee-yeon truly embodies the webtoon character, to the point of being more faithful to the original than the female lead Kang Ji-won/
In the webtoon, Hee-yeon is described as often having exaggerated yet adorable expressions, and the portrayal of Hee-yeon in the drama aligns with this.
Apart from creating a sense of “stepping out of the webtoon”, Park Min-young’s “sister-in-law” has won the hearts of viewers due to her bright and incredibly charming personality. She quickly becomes close friends with Ji-won after Ji-won “saved” her from a crisis
Thanks to Hee-yeon, Ji-won truly understands what a true friendship is, especially after being betrayed by her “best friend” in her first life. Hee-yeon is not hesitant to spend money to help Ji-won transform into the most perfect version of herself, enabling Ji-won to shine at her class reunion, where she faces those who once bullied her.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that Hee-yeon is the warm sunshine that lights up the otherwise gloomy life of the female lead.
As a result, actress Choi Gyu-ri has also gained increased attention, with viewers praising her for natural acting, accurately capturing the spirit of her character.
