But first, a pause to insert a true story from Yvonne Lim: “When people ask, ‘What’s the title of the drama?’ and I say ‘Marry Me’, they say, ‘No, I’m not going to marry you’!”
Yvonne, together with Jesseca Liu and Ya Hui, play a trio of friends with successful careers who, for one reason or other, just can’t seem to meet and marry Mr Right. Thomas Ong, Pierre Png, Yuan Shuai and Jeffrey Xu also star as potential candidates.
“You can either see them as a problem or you see them as a mystery,” Pierre theorized. “When you see them as a mystery… everything is interesting, and you are intrigued by just about every response you get out of her. Whereas if you find her a problem, you just want to find a way to avoid that problem – maybe you come home a little bit later, when she’s fast asleep!”
