What's Wrong With Secretary Kim

  • Park Seo-joon as Lee Young-joon / Lee Sung-hyun
  • Park Min-young as Kim Mi-so
  • Also known as Why Secretary Kim
  • Genre : Romantic comedy
  • It is based on the novel of the same title by Jung Kyung-yoon which was first published in 2013, which was then serialized into a comic in 2015 via KakaoPage.
  • The series aired on tvN from June 6 to July 26, 2018, on Wednesdays and Thursdays for 16 episodes.
  • It is one of the highest rated Korean dramas in cable television history.


  • The thing this drama does well is it does its comedy and romance very well. The story is your typical rom-com in the sense that you know how it’s going to end.
  • What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim is more of a ‘turn your brain off, relax, and have a laugh’ type of drama.
  • I found myself smiling and having a good time, which really is the point of spending hours of our lives watching dramas right?
  • The acting/cast is probably the strongest link in this drama.
  • Park Min Young and Park Seo Joon were just perfect couple. You can feel the chemistry between them.
  • Overall, it’s a good drama. Simple plot, but yet entertaining, cheesy and funny moments, a lot of kisses and brilliant acting.
  • I would recommend this drama only for those who enjoy lighthearted romance-comedies and aren’t picky with how “well-written” the story and characters have to be.

My Rating – 8.5/10
