K-drama Feels:
  • It is a feel good and typical cliché kind of drama. No need to deeply analyze the characters and plot.
  • There are enough cute moments and a decent enough story to keep it entertaining, but there isn’t really much substance.
  • Even though this drama is shorter than most, I still think it was too long. The flashback abuse in this drama is pretty epic.
  • I loved the acting of Sung Hoon. His acting is super funny and makes this drama watchable. He is a total eye-candy.
  • It might not be everyone’s cup of tea but it is quite fun and enjoyable.
  • My Secret Romance is good for watching when you don’t want to think too deeply.


My Rating – 7.5/10 (It has a simple and predictable story but quite refreshing.)
