I want to be in the kind of relationship where I feel like the tiredness of my day gets washed off just by hugging you once. – Young Joon
Synopsis : The plot revolves around the ambitious Vice Chairman of a major corporation, Lee Young-joon, and his highly capable secretary, Kim Mi-so. Misunderstandings arise when she announces that she will resign from her position, after working for Lee Young-joon for nine years. Young-joon will do whatever he can to make sure Mi-so stays by his side. (Source : Wikipedia)
- 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
