What happened previously?
The first two episodes of "So I Married An Anti-Fan" served to introduce and establish the characters. Viewers met Hoo Joon (Choi Tae Joon), an internationally famous, award-winning K-Pop idol. He has everything he could hope for, yet he seems unhappy.
Viewers also learn that the woman he is in love with, Oh In Hyung (Han Ji An), is dating his friend/enemy, JJ (2PM's Hwang Chan Sung), a chaebol and an entertainment agency CEO. JJ is clearly jealous of Joon and seemingly dates In Hyung because Joon likes her.
The female lead of "So I Married An Anti-Fan" is Lee Geun Young (Choi Soo Young), a down-on-luck reporter who works hard, working overtime and sacrificing her holidays. She breaks up with her boyfriend at the very beginning of the show when she learns he was cheating on her.
Lee Geun Young first met Hoo Joon when they ran into each other outside the launch of JJ's club. Later, when a drunk Geun Young is walking around, she spies on Joon and Oh In Hyung. Joon thinks Geun Young is a paparazzi, chases after her, calls her trash, and smashes her camera. This is where the "hate" part of their relationship begins.
Geun Young ends up losing her job because of Joon and is unhappy with how his fans do not see how duplicitous he is. She takes it on as a personal mission to out Joon's bad personality, and gets dubbed as his anti-fan, inviting the wrath of his fans.
Joon takes advantage of his situation, "embracing his anti-fan" in front of the public, thereby making Geun Young more angry.
Joon's gesture, however, got two reality show producers to approach both of them to shoot a reality series, "So I Married An Anti-Fan". Geun Young accepts thinking she can use it to show Joon's real personality, while Joon is strong-armed into taking on the show as well.
What to expect in So I Married An Anti-Fan Episode 3?
With both Joon and Geun Young on board, the pair are getting ready to shoot the eponymous reality show "So I Married An Anti-Fan" within the show. What comes next is the photoshoot the pair will take, for promotional materials, as well as the actual shooting of the reality series.
Meanwhile, Joon and Geun Young also begin to see another side of each other and JJ notices. JJ, who gets pleasure from taking away everything Joon likes, starts spending time with Geun Young and getting close to her.
The question for "So I Married An Anti-Fan" viewers is, will Geun Young see through JJ's duplicitousness, or will she end up hurting Joon?
