All About Marriage (also known as “Please Marry Me”, “Gyeolhonhae Juseyo”, “Give Me Your Hand”) is a 56-episode Korean Drama about courtship, marriage and divorce as experienced by four couples living together in a modest household.
Kim Jongdae (Baek Il Seob from My Boyfriend is Type B, Let’s Go to the Beach, Glass Slippers, My Tutor Friend, La Dolce Vita) is married to Oh Soon Ok (Go Doo Shim) and they have three adult children – Kim Taeho (Lee Jong Hyuk, from A Gentleman's Dignity, Crazy in Love, The Master's Sun), Kim Yunho (Oh Yoon Ah from Athena: Goddess of War), and Kim Gangho (Sung Hyuk from Let’s Go to the Beach and Oh! My Lady).The Kim family belongs to an average social class but they have lived through difficult times. They are very patriarchal and have to bear with the whims and temper of Jongdae, while Soon Ok remains a faithful, hardworking, kind and supportive wife and mother.
Kim Taeho is the eldest son of the Kim family and married to his college sweetheart, Nam Jeongim (Kim Ji Young from Forever the Moment). Jeongim worked at a rice cake shop for many years to support Taeho’s graduate school education until he achieves back to back career milestones such as promotion to College Professor and soon as Host Sociologist and Expert for a marriage-oriented TV show. Jeongim serves the Kim family diligently as Taeho’s wife and the Kim family’s daughter-in-law but hardly merits appreciation by the household, except by her mother-in-law and brother-in-law. The couple soon faces marital problems as Taeho becames attracted to his colleague, Yun Seoyoung (Lee Tae Im) and starts to despise Jeongim for not having the bearing of a reputable professor’s wife. Taeho and Jeongim gets divorced but plans to keep their status a secret to protect Taeho’s interest. Meanwhile, Jeongim moves out of the Kim household to strive for independence, and in a favorable twist of fate, her friend Choi Hyun Wook (Ryu Tae Joon, from You're My Pet, Crazy in Love) turned her to a famous singer.
Kim Yunho is the second child of the Kim family. She is an opinionated and bossy woman filled with contradictions in her life. She is a grade school teacher who initially attends blind dates in search for a rich husband but ends up falling madly in love with Han Kyung Hoon (Han Sang Jin from Angel's Temptation, Marrying a Millionaire, Something Happened in Bali), a single father doing odd jobs as water delivery personnel and cab driver but turns out to be from a wealthy family.
Kim Gangho is the youngest child of the Kim family. He pales in comparison with his famous over-achiever brother, Taeho and often scolded by Jongdae for having a tough time getting good employment. One day, Gangho tries to save Yu Dahye (Lee Da In) from a group of men chasing her but Gangho ends up badly beaten. After a few days, Gangho sees Dahye drinking liquor alone and offers to take her home but both got extremely drunk and woke up together in a motel with very little recollection of what transpired. The one night stand results in Dahye’s pregnancy and the young couple gets married despite strong resistance from Dahye’s mother, Song Inseon (Lee Whee Hyang from Stairway to Heaven, General Hospital) who happens to be Jongdae’s former girlfriend.
