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

    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

    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.

    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!

    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……..

    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

    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.
