Seoul, Korea – Moon Geun Young, currently starring in the KBS 2TV Mon/Tue series Mary Is Out, has captured the hearts of men with her lovable expressions.
In the episode which aired on the 15th, Moon Geun Young used the same expression used by Puss-in-Boots in the movie Shrek, grabbing the attention of viewers. Mary (Moon Geun Young), who has started her double married life, finds herself in a situation on the first day. With promises to meet Jeong In (Kim Jae Wook) in the morning and Kang Moo Kyul (Jang Geun Seok) in the afternoon, Mary fears that her father Wi Dae Han (Park Sang Myun) will find out.
Mary drew up a 100-day contract with Jeong In to pay off her father’s debts but only has a verbal agreement with indie band lead singer Moo Kyul, whom she happened to meet in the Hongdae area. However, she pays two million won to Moo Kyul, asking him if she can move in with him (she’ll pay rent), because if the truth is revealed, she will have to get married to Jeong In.
The irritated Moo Kyul strongly rejects Mary’s offer. Moo Kyul says: “First, it’s the wedding pictures, then using my name in a 100-day contract. Now you want to move in? I’ve had it.” Then, Mary looks up from the money envelope she holds in front of her face and makes a desperate expression.
Seeing this pose, Moo Kyul remarks, “Is that Puss-in-Boots from Shrek?” Laughing it off and then getting serious, he says, “That’s not gonna work,” prompting laughter from viewers. Moon Geun Young’s expression was the highlight of the episode, as her experience making various expressions from working in commercials shined through.
Viewers who watched the show remarked with such comments as: “Both Mary, with her Puss-in-Boots expression, and Moo Kyul, who rejects it, are very cute.” “Overall, the lines were simple but effective.” “I want to carry around Moon Geun Young’s playful acting in my pocket.” “The bling-bling CG was unnecessary, but the couple’s natural light is worth it.”
Meanwhile, the interest in the show was raised because Mary’s two husbands Jeong In and Moo Kyul met as a CEO of an entertainment agency and a musician. At the end of the episode, Jeong In brings home a drunk Moo Kyul and says, “We can become great partners,” making it unclear to Mary as to whether they are a gay couple.
