  11. 11 : Hyeongnam Says:

    If a young man and a beautiful young secretary were together almost every day for 9 years and never got it on, one of them is gay. The biological urge to procreate is more powerful than will-power or a chastity belt; what to speak of moral codes of conduct.

    This drama has become buzz lately!!
    Maybe it is too early, but their drama is one of the best I’ve ever watched.
    Chemistry between main lead and supporting casts are fantastic!!!
    It is a fresh romance-comedy drama, rare one.

  36. 36 : Hyeongnam Says:

    Nelson . . . chill out twat!

  37. 37 : Hyeongnam Says:

    Why do I get the feeling the older brother is not straight up?

  38. 38 : iLy Says:

    I’ve watched this drama, and I found this one is interesting and I decide to follow this drama till the end. this drama has usual plot = the man is rich, woman is ordinary people, they suffer. but this drama still have an interesting part of it that make me want to keep watching it, like fresh comedy scene, awkward moment beetwen the leads, though I think assistant Bong’s character was too weird.

    I don’t feel the chaebol (rich man) aura on Park Seo Joon at all, but that wasn’t a big deal for me. I still can enjoy the drama. I surprised with Park Min Young, how she can perfectly act as secretary, how that role really suit her.

  39. 39 : ayu adnan Says:

    This drama are awesome from first episode….well done all of you….kep fightinggg!!

  40. 40 : Ally Says:

  44. 44 : Yuri Says:

    Totally agree with no 43. This drama is perfect and interesting in each episode. Park Min Young suit the secretary lead at its best and the two of them made a great couple ❤ This drama is as good as Because This Is My First Live in my opinion, which every episode is sooo interesting.

  49. 49 : mariana.miron Says:

    Indeed, a very good drama! BRAVO for all the team!
    Regarding the two main leaders, they have 200% compatibility. Park Min Young and Park Seo Joon are a stunning pair. Park Min Young is an amazing Lady, I admire her! When I see each episode I have the same emotions like when I saw Love in the Moonlight, The descendants of the sun, Moon embraces the sun etc.
    All the actors are perfect in their roles, and the younger ones are super cute. Well Done! CONGRATULATIONS!

  50. 50 : OK OK OK Says:

  54. 54 : May Says:

    B.E.S.T D.R.A.M.A I.N Y.E.A.R.S ( well since Goblin at least for me :p).

    I’m not just saying , it’s a fact. This drama is funny , cool , interesting and the storyline is far from boring! I mean look at me all excited abt it!! I’ve never felt bored from ep1 to ep14 (can’t wait for the final eps Yayi) I’m writing in Caps and I hate writing in Caps but the mains’ chemistry and romance is AMAZING!!!! The storyline is so funny and sweet you will melt while watching these two. And, it’s not the usual funny-sweet cliché, it’s the good quality funny and sweet drama <3
    **To you the one who is reading this comment yes you fellow drama lover don't listen to negative people! I'm telling you this is a catch! YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS DRAMA AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! SAVE YOUR LIFE! LOL.

  55. 55 : tigerb Says:

    to May @54: you are challenging me to watch this drama. i’ll try if it is really worth watching. the plot is too common, so let’s see if it is at least fun.

  56. 56 : Neginyahsi Says:

    The drama is fun but the plot is too simple and some scence are very repeatitive for example they accidently fall on each other. I give 5 over 10 to this drama

  57. 57 : Mee Says:

    Usually I enjoy watching PSJ drama .. she was pretty .. kill me heal me .. FFMY .. I summon you gold and others .. I also love PMY acting in healer and city hunter.. but for this one I feel bored .. I think the story will get better in each ep since so many good comments out there for this drama .. and after finished ep 5, I gave up 😥😥.. for some reason I just can’t get into this drama.

  58. 58 : Thad Says:

    If you really want to watch a well directed, great casting, well thought of script… What’s wrong with Secretary Kim has it all.. (for me) the creative team did a great job orchestrating this Kdrama.YES! the story is simple with lots of cliches that we’ve seen BUT what surprised me was the directors’ and the writers’ treatment that made each scenes and cliches standout and made a simple story great!.. cliche scene are done with follow throughs which makes it all the difference. The chemistry of the leads and support is spot on. And you’ll definitely know and realize why PSJ is perfectly casted for the role. That’s how meticulous the production team is composed of an award winning director, a great scriptwriter and really good acting cast.
    You will surely enjoy watching this. If ratings is 10 then I give this 11 for a job well done!

  59. 59 : OK OK OK Says:

    To me Wok of Love is more interesting than What’s wrong with Secretary Kim. I compare both because both airing at the same time. I have finished wok of Love but will continue WWWSK from ep 14 where I have stopped. Now watching SKETCH too – Nice……..

  60. 60 : ccdiaz21 Says:

    LOVEEEEEE ITTT!! BEST DRAMA EVERRRRRRRRRR!!! The storyline had me at the so intrigued then shocked! The actors have such a great chemistry! I MEAN ALLL THE ACTORS!! You find all types of coworkers in their office that you can relate to or know someone thats like them.
    Park Seo Joon’s parents are a girls dream inlaws and Park Seo Joon is just a girls dream man! Some scenes had me cringing, smiling from ear to ear, screaming like a high school girl, crying inconsolably, throwing something and cursing in anger and sometimes doing it all from just one episode. Ill definitely be rewatching

  61. 61 : Pam Says:

    Most beautiful ending BRAVO

  62. 62 : Shell Says:

    Supperr loveee this drama!! One of my favorite kdramas… so funny and very beautifull happy ending.. big love for park seo joon and all the other casts.. ❤❤❤

  63. 63 : Carmarie Says:

    I loved this drama. I can tell you what it DOES NOT have…and maybe for some it makes it boring.

    1. A love triangle
    2. A weak female who does not think because his station is higher than hers, she does not deserve his love or to love him
    3. A screaming father who hits, throws things, and reek havoc.
    4. The mother-in-law who tries to bribe the girlfriend or feels she is beneath her son. The mother-in-law loves the girlfriend and looks at her as the daughter she never had.

    5. His parents did not look down on her family because they do not have money. The parents are down to earth and know how to apologize to their children when they are wrong.
    In other words this family is normal.

    This drama does not have all the cliches that make me want to scream at screen, slap or shake some sense into the characters. That is what make this drama great all the unnecessary BS has been cut out…Kudos to the writer, production staff and producer.
    No the story is not complicated, but a simple love story between two people. I like that the mystery was solved early in the drama and the conflicts addressed early enough that the ending felt right and not rushed.

    The supporting characters had stories of their own which were also resolved in a positive way.

    The clothes were fabulous and realistic, not over the top. Until I started watching K-dramas I never equated being wealthy with wearing weird clothes, or being poor with wearing ill-fitting clothes. Of course there are always some minor points that one will not like, but it does not take away from the story. Overall this drama was very good and I will watch it again and recommend it to others.

  64. 64 : OK OK OK Says:

    Hwang Bo Ra as Bong Se Ra – i must praise this actress for adding so much laughter to this drama. 😛

    […] Image Courtesy […]

  66. 66 : Sandra s Says:

    The first part was entertaining. I enjoyed it. After they started dating, it became boaring. At the end, this is not really a story with character development and plot etc…It’s just an entertaining watch, but I lost interest in the second part really.
    The biggest problem I had with this drama was the clothes what the supposedly poor struggling secretary is wearing. She represented a poor secretary with minimalist wardrobe but she was wearing Bags for more than $3000 e.g Findi or wearing Chloe top for $2000. So undeliverable.

  67. 67 : Stranger Says:

    I dont find this drama suit my taste..i do think wok of love more interesting n have better chemistry btwn their leads..i dont even know why everyone roots for park park couple..hahaha..just my point of view ..i am psj biggg fan but not satisfy with the storyline (i dont know how to sincerely laughing at their jokes) as i enjoyed fight for my way drama….waiting for psj new project!!!

    *** risky romance also good!! psj and lsy would make great pair!!! (Hopefully)

  68. 68 : Kay Says:

    The best k-drama need part2…please!!!

  69. 69 : Park Seojon Says:

    Its a very funny drama, cinderella kind if thing… simple and purely fan service only.. i love the first part… but when they started dating it starts uninteresting..: PMY looks so pretty and young but there is a vibe that she is a noona to PSJ in the drama.. well in reality PSJ is a baby brother to her anyway… fun to watch thats it!

  70. 70 : Shirohana Says:

    One of the best drama this year. I love the story line, the sad, the comedian and the happy part , all the combination was great. I love both main actor Park Seo Joon and actress Park Min Yong who really did well in this drama.The title of the drama isn’t that great but the whole drama was really good comparing to so many this year!!
    Credit and applause to :

    The story was a little weak, but Park Seo Joon and Park Min Young were wonderful. Their chemistry was fantastic, and they are the reason to watch this drama 🙂
