The Korean Webtoon ‘Marry My Husband’ won hearts for its roller-coaster premise that takes you through a wave of emotions.
Through the complex female lead character of ‘Kang Ji Won,’ the series navigates through the life of a woman who is surrounded by the darkest clouds but gets one chance to change her present by altering her past.
The webtoon readers were ecstatic to find out that the webtoon would be adapted into a K-Drama series. With that, they also started placing the most suitable face on the main character. Lo and behold! All K-Drama enthusiasts would agree with the choice.
On November 22, 2023, tvN released stills of the ‘Marry My Husband’ drama, and it was none other than Park Min Young. Since the female lead has cancer, Ms. Park lost a lot of weight, dropping to 37 kgs to portray the character rightfully. However, there is nothing wrong with Park Min Young healthwise. She is just preparing for her role in the drama.
Has Something Happened to Park Min Young?
Park Min Young has the ability to shape-shift into any character she plays. Her roles in ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal,’ ‘City Hunter,’ ‘Healer,’ ‘What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim,’ and ‘Love in Contract’ are a testament to her dedication and aptitude for understanding characters before portraying them.
Hence, Ms. Min Young was unequivocally the best choice to play Kang Ji Won in ‘Marry My Husband.’ But the new images of the 37-year-old actress worried the fans, considering her slim silhouette has gotten even thinner. She has visibly lost a lot of weight, and her face has shrunk too.
Before jumping the gun, netizens discovered that Park Min Young had been preparing to play the role of her life, for which she has lost weight with severe diet and restraint.
Rest assured, nothing has happened to Park Min Young. She is safe and thriving. The actress is ready to rule the hearts with her performance.
Why Did Park Min Young Lose So Much Weight?
The creator of the webtoon, ‘Marry My Husband,’ knows how to pull your heartstrings and leave you balling your eyes out and then roll over laughing. The drama taps into the usual ‘reincarnation’ and ‘back to the past’ trope. But the context of the story makes it so much more intriguing. “
Kang Ji Won is surrounded by a bunch of people but is still lonely. She struggles to maintain her home life due to overbearing in-laws and a neglectful husband. Moreover, her useless husband is having an affair with her closest friend (snake).
If that wasn’t enough, Ji Won was also diagnosed with cancer. Amidst all the dark clouds looming over her, she receives a rare chance.
Ji Won reincarnates as her younger self, ten years in the past. Ji Won decides to alter her past and avenge herself by making her close friend marry her husband. Only time will tell what her destiny will unravel.
Considering the plotline, Park Min Young is an apt choice. She has a youthful appearance about her to depict someone ten years younger. The real challenge, however, was to play a person suffering from cancer.
To stay true to her character, Park Min Young fully committed to reducing her weight to almost 37 kgs (81 lbs, 9 Oz). I have to say, the look works perfectly for her, albeit a few concerts in what toll it would take on her health.
