I finished watching What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim — all-around delightful! Though there was one fatal flaw, imo… but the protagonists were lovable and interesting. Our heroine with her bright plastic secretary smile, lol, and our hero with his shameless narcissism, yet puppylike pursuit of her, haha. I’m so surprised they never strayed into #MeToo territory not once, given the premise!
Mild spoilers after the break…
Has the day come when Kim Jae-wook is finally being cast as a romantic leading man???
Dramabeans is reporting that he is being considered for a TVN (yeah!!) romcom drama called Her Private Life and I’m super excited about this. He’s been around a while and from the very first moment I’ve always felt that he had the goods to lead a drama but he’s only been given secondary roles at best. In the last couple of years though I’ve felt that he’s finally been noticed – paying the bad guy in Voice and lately starring in a meatier drama as a priest (have no idea how that did though)..be that as it may..finally finally he’s getting his chance! And..his potential love interest is Park Min-young..where did this girl get all the luck..she’s had the most amazing leading men in her dramas hasn’t she??
Titled ‘Her Private Life‘, the drama tells the comical love story about a girl who is a professional curator with a passion for her work on the outside, but on the inside, she’s a seriously “closeted” K-Pop idol fan! Thanks to her busy work life discovering rising artists as a curator, Park Min Young’s character also operates in secret as the homemaster of a popular idol group member, Si Ahn. Opposite Park Min Young in the role of this “closeted” K-Pop fan, Kim Jae Wook takes on the newly appointed head director of an art museum, a.k.a Park Min Young’s boss. Shortly after being hired as the museum’s director, Kim Jae Wook’s character discovers Park Min Young’s secret, taking a keen interest in her “double-life”.
The more I thought about the last couple of episodes of this drama, the more I thought of them as the ultimate fan service (and I’m not complaining!)
More, and potential spoilers after the jump.
This show is NOT helping my Park Seo-joon affliction AT ALL! Yes, he’s playing a character, just one of many lovely characters he’s played, but having seen him in action on the Yoon’s Kitchen reality show (and it seems very unscripted) I think his basic goodness and yes, manliness, really shines through.
Park Min-young is really the perfect partner too because she comes across so intelligent and feminine and delicate that when he sits her on his lap you just have to swoon at the rightness of it all.
Of course, spoilers after the jump, because I have lots to swoon about!
Just finished Ep 10 and totally enjoyed it, especially the unexpected surprise at seeing… spoilers after the jump!
I really enjoyed these episodes – alot of fun and alot of lightness. I’m loving these zany side characters so much – which is not always the case. I don’t feel that I have to endure them but I can go ahead and enjoy them instead.
Also, I’ve been meaning to say that for the very first time I’m also enjoying the – what do you call it – “sound” accompaniment to the scenes, even the small little extra blinking is endearing. I’m actually surprised at myself because that’s one of the reasons that I haven’t watched the Taiwanese dramas for a while. I can’t abide those over the top sounds that come with the characters – it’s a total turnoff for me but I think it’s because they go overboard and it’s too much in your face whereas here, though it’s obviously there, it’s ‘more subtle and it complements the dialogue rather than overpowers it. Mild spoiler follows.
It’s funny how things happen and that the power has definitely gone over to our dear girl’s direction. Of course, it would have been a little humiliating, to say the least, to be rejected so but I liked seeing her anger come out cause it allowed us to see his version of groveling, LOL!
I’m getting tired of being teased though; much as their longing stares and sudden awkwardness can be endearing it’s also tiring if it becomes too repetitious. So will the real guy please stand up? I can’t wait to hear the truth about what happened that night long ago.
So what do you think of the frugal employee strutting around as if he had 10 suits when he barely has one??
