Brief Synopsis

These days, there seems to be just too many single working women in their 30's. These women have spent all their years accomplishing their dream and now stand all alone. They turn to men now hoping to settle down but all the fine guys have been snatched away by young girls who were only concerned about getting married. Now they try to fall into self-hypnotism that they are better off than being trapped in an unhappy marriage but they can't help feeling being all alone and lonely. "Marry Me" is a story of how women in their thirties come to face with life and discover something new about their lives.

30 year-old spinster reporter Sin-Young was once called a "troublemaker reporter" but she clenched her teeth and kept digging into her work. Finally all of these efforts were rewarded with a prize for getting a scoop. As every dog has his day, she also gets hers and is offered an audition for news anchor. But again, her destiny doesn't leave her in peace and brings her the news of her long-time boyfriend's betrayal. He leaves her to marry a girl 12 years younger than Sin-Young.Soon-Ae, a 30-year-old stewardess, is the breadwinner of her family who supports her ailing father, a utterly hopeless widow aunt and another hopeless cousin. To her, her family comes first before anything else and this scares all the men away. There was one man who didn't leave her but he was only taking advantage of her company card that gives discounts to luxury goods. One day, she bumps right into her boyfriend with another woman on the very spot and in enormous rage, she beats him up. Very soon she's introduced as "the Crazy Crew" worldwide and she gets fired.Seung-Ri is renowned for her numerous love affairs.
