This article is a preview for Welcome to Wedding Hell season 1, episodes 4, 5, and 6, and may contains spoilers for previous episodes.
Netflix’s new four-week k-drama event series Welcome to Wedding Hell got off to a pretty respectable start in its first trio of episodes, introducing us to our lead characters, Na-eun and Jun-hyeong, and giving us a sense of the many problems they’re about to face as they plan their wedding. It’s a comedy, largely, but also a breezy drama about one of our most scared cultural institutions, and while thus far it has been something of a mixed bag, there’s definitely potential here for a lot of potential insight and drama. Here’s where we’re up to with my first three recaps:
Episode 1: Welcome to Wedding Hell has a pretty simple premise, which is established with breezy economy in this opening episode, “First Pitch”. Kim Na-eun and her boyfriend of two years, Seo Jun-hyeong (Lee Jin-wook, last seen in Bulgasal: Immortal Souls, are very happy together. She’s thinking of getting married. He might not be. They decide to tie the knot anyway, somewhat under sufferance, and it seems very likely that the process isn’t going to be as smooth as either would like.
Episode 2: The trouble with signs is that people see them everywhere, even when they’re not necessarily there. And when you’re banking something as big and important as a relationship, much less a marriage, on the wordless signs between partners, all of which are open to interpretation, then you’re probably opening yourself up to some difficulties. In the opening of the second – and improved – episode of Welcome to Wedding Hell, this conversation takes the form of a baseball analogy, but the implication is pretty clear.
Episode 3: The thing about money, though, is that it’s kind of dull, and so is this episode, lacking some of the slapstick-y hijinks of yesterday’s outing. The chemistry is still there, but let’s hope next week brings some more interesting things for the two leads to argue about.
