  20. 20 : sami Says:

    Recaps are nowhere to be found. Where can i find the recaps? Somebody plz help me.

  21. 21 : flounder Says:

    Both the girl and male leads are just so idiotic and clueless people. What kind of drama is this supposed to be? There is nothing new about it. Boring stuff ! Every other scene and character seem to be taken from a piece of every other Korean dramas that have been shown. Paste these bits together, give it a name Love and Secret and a junk piece of drama is created.

    Will skip this drama.

  22. 22 : couzin Says:

    WHAT IS KBS WORLD’s PROBLEM? IF THEY’RE RESPONSIBLE FOR POSTING CURRENT EPISODES OF LOVE & SECRET, I WAS GETTING THEM DAILY & ALL OF THE SUDDEB EP 9 IS NOT UPLOADED ENG. SUBBED VERSION, THERE ARE KBS 2 VERSIONS ,BUT THEY ARE IN KOREAN ONLY. I NOTICED THAT KBS ALSO SCREWED UP TWO MOTHERS. THEY WERE ON A ROLL & ALL OF THE SUDDEN THEY JUST STOP UPLOADING & MANY VIEWERS GOT UPSET & WROTE IN, THEY SCREWED AROUND A FEW DAYS & GOT BACK ON TRACK, KBS, ARE YOU DOING THE SAME GAME NOW?

  23. 23 : mml Says:

    I have just finished watching episode 18 and now, Han Ah Reum’s father discovered that his daughter is a single mother and towards the ending episode , Han Ah Reum’s father chased his daughter out of the house. Looking sad , from a happy family and suddenly things turning upside down all because of Han Ah Reum . No man will accept a single mother, will Han Ah Reum will eventually accept Philip and their love can be reconciled ?

  24. 24 : Confused KBS fan Says:

    Yes, I noticed too. KBS’s messed up programming and timing schedules. The biggest “sin” any tv station can ever commit. YES, KBS DOES REALLY SCREWED UP BIG TIME in this regard. A MESS!

    There is no set time slots or day for the same shows, whether it be a drama, variety, musical, documentary, etc. Their timing was so mixed up. For the same show, today it might be on this certain time slot, but then the next day, it is on another different time slot. And worse, there was even a time when the episodes of a drama were all mixed up in their sequence. This was a killer for any enthusiasm to tune into the station. So confusing!

    A viewer will never know what will come on when the station is tuned in. It’s like looking into a magician’s hat, not knowing what will be pulled out. What a confusion station!

    Sux!

  25. 25 : Rose Says:

    Confused — I agree with you on the programs being on at different times. I started watching Come Bo Ri on MBC – it started at 4:15 p.m. USA time, then 4:30 p.m. then 4p.m. then 3:45 p.m. Same with some other shows I watch. They go from anywhere of 15 minutes to half hour earlier, or later or whatever. It is hard to know if a person is taping the show what you are actually taping. Or what time to even tune in to the show. U.S. doesn’t do that. They have certain time slots for the programs and you can count on that unless a special is airing for some reason and then you know about that.

    I know this is not part of this show, but I didn’t know where else to put this , but Tarzan — Hyun Woo Sung — from “Two Mothers” is in a new drama Mon – Fri – MBC at 7:20.
    “Stormy Weather.” Started November 3.
    I put it on the “Two Mother’s” sight, but I know no one is watching that know. I thought maybe some of the same people might be watching this show.

  26. 26 : Julee Says:

    Hey guys, I also started watching this drama because I was nostalgic for the old comedy/sit-coms like Soon Soon Sam Bu In Ca.

    Anyways, I’ll be recapping it as I go along on my website: http://www.dramafeed.com.

    Check it out as the round of recaps for this drama go up tonight. ^^
    I hope to catch up the English subs by this weekend and catch up the Korean version in two weeks…

  27. 27 : Louisa kaiserman Says:

    I was watching Big on KBS Chicago and next was Love and Secret starting on the 9 episode. Is the drama on more than once a day?

  28. 28 : biteshori Says:

    Love this drama very much can’t wait for the next episode

  29. 29 : Rose Says:

    Big finished I believe December 4. It was airing in Chicago at 4:30 p.m. and the rerun from 4:30 p.m. was airing around 2:00 or 2:30 a.m.

    The Innocent Man replaced Big at 4:30 p.m.

    I am not sure if this show airs twice a day With these Koran shows one never knows what is going on at times.

  30. 30 : Tayba Says:

    I am up to episode 13 and, so far, liking it very much.
    I like the relationship between the leads. Their hand holding over the light switch in episode 12 was so cute.

  31. 31 : Rose Says:

    I don’t care for Ah Reum – or I guess the actress.

    I like Philip – he seems to handle himself very professional. Nice looking guy.

    Guess no wedding for Eun Ah. So far I like her and how she handles herself.

  32. 32 : DF Says:

    This drama is a daily drama that is broadcast once a day. The reason why the KBS World episodes may be uploaded more frequently is that the subtitles are more than 7 episodes behind their raw counterparts. ^^

  33. 33 : Tayba Says:

    OK. Now up to episode 22 and still liking it a lot.
    Does anyone know how it is doing in the ratings?

  34. 34 : stela Says:

    arent we just tired of plots involving arranged/loveless marriages with two mindless adults agreeing to it…zzzzzz

  35. 35 : jung Says:

    i like actress i watching on ep.35 i want to see ep 36 but no sub Eng.

  36. 36 : Tayba Says:

    I am very impressed with the lead actor’s (Kim Hueng Soo) performance. He is very expressive in a subtle way. He uses his eyes and voice very well.

  37. 37 : Rose Says:

    I wonder if Sung Woon’s icky step mother is going to get her hands on Philip. He has money to help out her husband.

  38. 38 : sylvia Says:

    @jung what webside u watching? wow eng sub already ep 35???

  39. 39 : joy Says:

    Seen episode 41 on u tube but it has been pulled out .No English sub title though

  41. 41 : Tayba Says:

    Thank you for link with ratings. I am glad to see that it is doing well.
    I am surprised to see that “Only you, my love” is doing better. I tried watching it but quickly got bored.

  42. 42 : Tammy Says:

    Does anyone know the name of the opening theme song? Please tell me who it is. It sounds like two women singing.

  43. 43 : Tammy Says:

    I’ve been searching online but could not find the opening theme song. Please if someone knows it, please let me know. Thanks.

    In the drama of love and secret no expression … happy, surprised, crying, all the same. less good expression. ugly expression. Very bad

  46. 46 : maris Says:

    I really like the story of love & secret..i feel in love with the character of director cheong & hareum..they have good chemistry!! I like their acting..i also like the team of the story about love of family & work..looking forward to meet the main characters in the future..:)

  47. 47 : phoenix Says:

    Ahreum reminds me of troll doll.

  48. 48 : rrr Says:

    too long episodes end it now please.

  49. 49 : Rose Says:

    Philip is a nasty person. He is just like Eun Ah and Lee Soo Ah (Sung Woon’s step-mother). Has her husband figured out that she is out to ruin him?

    If Philip wins custody of Tiffany, like what will he do. He is not interested in the baby, he just wants to hurt Ah Reum and ruin Sung Woon. I don’t feel he has any feelings for Ah Reum. But whatever…..

  50. 50 : Dy.K Says:

    This kdrama shoul be rename as “Love and Stupidity”.
    This drama story line is where the bad guy is picture as smart, determine and other good quality if i must say minus to much greed and heartless (but hey top of the world always going to be cold and high place to go). And our heroine is one of weepy crybaby. OMG, your a single mother, women! Grow a spine will ya. At least our hero is a hardheaded.
    If this is how the writer work to make the ratings high so be it. It just make me sure enough not to judge kdrama from their ratings. Rather than the plot i still give good comment for the cast.

  51. 51 : Pat fan Says:

    Poor development of main character, Ahreum, is she totally in the dark about everything. And the male lead, shows no interesting aspects as a character other than glaring at Phillip. Annoying! The director of the show, over uses focusing on the characters eyes, eyes glaring, eyes looking sideways, eyes frowning, eyes twinkling, eyes,etc. so tiring! End this soon, a very predictable drama!

  52. 52 : Rose Says:

    I believe there was supposed to be 120 episodes, but I see now there are 103. Looks like they shortened it by 17 episodes. Does anyone know what the ratings are?

  53. 53 : Dy.K Says:

    To : Rose-52
    You can check this drama ratings on
    http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Love_%26_Secret/Episode_Ratings
    Seems like their ratings for daily slots is fine. But not enough to be numero uno. But IMHO…the ratings not always tells us everything about the story. If you thinks its good enough to go on then go for it. If its not good enough we always can stop anytime.
    I only watch this drama because its on my cabel channel, i won’t download it if i must to.

  54. 54 : Rose Says:

    To: Dy.K —-

    Thanks for the info. I see the ratings are good. I usually don’t go by the ratings or what other people have to say, I usually watch the show and make my own decision. I am enjoying this show.

    Wonder why they cut the episodes? Oh well.

  55. 55 : Suraya Abadi Says:

    I tried to watch this drama, but I find that this drama degrading female going overboard. I think the female lead is to desperate to be a leading actress, she doesn’t care how the story goes. The female character is selfish only thinking of her survival without overlooking her family. She went abroad to study, but she is somewhat a lost soul and look so stupid. It is so out of good story line – brain clotted for the writer I guess. Drama are make believe, but this one is out of contact

  56. 56 : Rose Says:

    Does anyone know what happened to the $150,000 that Philip gave Ahreum’s aunt that is missing?????

  57. 57 : Rose Says:

    Do Hyeong, Sung Woon’s dad is so stupid to overlook everything his wife did to him to get her hands on the company so he won’t be alone when he gets older. What a jerk. I hope Sung Woon can somehow expose everything she and Eun Ah did to him and his dad.

    That Philip is such a devil but so good looking. Jin woo is a cute young man.

    The scene with the two young boys in the ladies department trying to buy lingerie was cute and funny. Hang Han Yo is a good little actor.

  58. 58 : Kdrama_fan Says:

    Yang Jin Woo plays a least favorite role every drama I watched, especially in Cheer Up, Mr. Kim. Again, he plays this irresponsible conniving bad guy in Love and Secret. Very disappointing.

  59. 59 : Rose Says:

    Lee Soo Ah’s mother is a piece of work. This is only the 3rd drama she is in.

    You would think Sung Yoon’s father would speak to him at work about private matters instead of home so Lee Soo Ah can hear everything they are talking about. Stupid. I feel sorry for the little son, he is cute and is doing the best he can with his school work, but his mother continues to berate him.

  60. 60 : Rose Says:

    I have only seen 72 episodes of this show. I may have missed one or two, but now Philip’s dad shows up. First I heard about his parents. It seems that Philip had a lonely childhood. Now Ahrem will have double trouble with Philip’s e-wife working with him trying to get Tiffany. Poor little Tiffany – she is so cute. Philip doesn’t even care about little Tiffany. He may end up going back with his wife now that she is back on the scene. Ick. They make a good evil pair.

  61. 61 : Rose Says:

    Just what nasty Philip needed was his creep of a wife. All they care about is money and power. Poor little Tiffany – (if I was her parents I don’t know if I could let her be in these shows).

    It appears Philip didn’t have such a great family life, and his dad, in his infinite stupid mind, feels children should be with their father. Like how great was he to Philip when he was growing up.

    Hasn’t Ahrem’s dad figured out yet he can’t leave his wife alone for a minute?? Every time he leaves her alone, she disappears.

    Why doesn’t Philip just re-marry his ex-wife and they can have their own children to make his dad happy. That darn Philip is despicable to say the least. He is the one who left Ahrem and she didn’t bother him after that point. He has made her life miserable.

  62. 62 : Rose Says:

    Episodes are at 102 now. It went from 120 to 103, now 102.

    Where I live the last 3 days KBS has not had any dramas — only news and I don’t know what??!!! Anyone know what is going on?

  63. 63 : WhatIsThis Says:

    This drama is such a bad piece of work. A stupidly bad storyline, no new ideas, stupid dialogues, bad cast members, etc.

    Everything bad about it. Sad to say, this drama is in its dying throes. It is struggling.

    This drama should have been killed off right from its very early days.

    From this drama, it looks like whoever wrote this script, her / his world is a very narrow and small one. It’s reflected in the contents of the drama. As can be seen, there is no injection of any new ideas, no new situations, etc. Nothing refreshing about it.

    Simply put, there is no life in this drama at all !!! It is a graveyard.

  64. 64 : lee Says:

    I keep on watching it but the last 10 episode has no english version. What happened, we can’t understand where the story goes.

  65. 65 : Rose Says:

    @lee —

    I have no idea – after watching 100 episodes, now there is no English subs. I tried going on You Tube but even though it says it has Eng Subs, it doesn’t. Just great.

    I live in Chicago and as of March 18, KBS stopped airing all their dramas, musical, talk shows, everything. All they have now is news 24/7. I am very unhappy about this as I don’t have time to be on the computer 24/7 watching everything I used to watch on the TV.

  66. 66 : Rose Says:

    How does Sung Chul let himself get involved with his dip stick daughter and her idiot boyfriend trying to teach Soo-A to sing. Soo-A only wants to get her hands on Sung Chul. Geez…..

  67. 67 : CW Says:

    Don’t know what’s happening in Chicago, but in the San Jose/San Francisco area KBS changed channels. They are now on the channel that previously carried SBS/MBC programs & that network went to cable & about 2 years prior to that they stopped translating. Just before the switch, KBS kept showing a long message & the only thing I could understand was it mentioned several TV networks. Once heard on a program that Korea not only wanted to increase their popularity not only in entertainment but also in the American market. Maybe it’s the American market that priced them out. Hope it’s not.

  68. 68 : Rose Says:

    CW — Oh Dear, I hope that the American market didn’t have anything to do with it. I really miss all the good programs KBS had. Like who wants to watch news all day long? Well — maybe …….

    Where I live MBS has an office etc. Summer of 2013 they had an open house which I went to. Quite a few people showed up. They gave prizes away and a bag of Korean info, little items. It was fun and mostly American’s were there, some Koreans. In the late fall they had a celebrity base ball game with Korean singers/actors, and then some of the Korean singers also. It was a cold, windy, cloudy day. From what I could see on TV when they aired the event, not many people were there watching the entertainment in the early evening. The baseball game was in the afternoon. I kind of thought they should have had it in the summer months, maybe more people would have come out.

    I stopped in their office last summer as one of the dramas they were airing had no Eng subs. She said “it is handled by the New York office,” and she would contact them, but the drama never had a subs.

    I only found one other person who posted about this program that it wasn’t airing at noon where she lives and wondered what happened. It did come on by me at noon also, so we might be in the same area.

    Thanks for the info. I am going to send an email to KBS in LA about the situation and see if I can any response.

  69. 69 : Rose Says:

    P.S. to my above post. What is now being aired on KBS 24/7 is all Koran news, no subs. Nothing I am interested in anyway. But I check in now and then to see if by chance it went back to their regular shows and some of it is repeats. News from 4 days ago, two days in a row, same news reporter – she had the same red dress on so I figured it was from the day before.

    ==============================================

    The birds are out and about — warm weather today — so happy to see them and that means spring is here.

  70. 70 : Blue (@wordpress) Says:

    The ratings are pretty good based on this link:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweet_Secret

    So why did it go from 120 episodes to 102 is a mystery to me but maybe it was simply because the writer didn’t have new ideas and had already made her point. It can’t be because of the ratings because it’s a success.

  71. 71 : Rose Says:

    Philip is so jealous of Sung Woon. Philip is the one that screwed up with Ahrem in the first place by leaving her and marrying Soo Ji for her money. Philip had a lonely life as I said above somewhere, but he could have had a nice life with Ahrem and their Tiffany.

    Philip is bad but I dislike Soo Ji even more. I hope Philip dumps Soo Ji at the end.

    Philip’s dad said he doesn’t have much time to live but he looks pretty darn good to me. What people won’t do for money. It can’t buy their happiness nor their health though.

  72. 72 : Rose Says:

    @Bluepress -== I checked the sight you posted – an yes the ratings are good, higher than I thought. You could be correct in what you said about the writer.

  73. 73 : Rose Says:

    Hasn’t Philip’s dad figured out that Tiffany was born while his son was married to that girl???? He is wondering what Philip did to Ahrem. Why didn’t has ask Ahrem when she was there when they had Tiffany. Poor little Tiffany – shuffling between so many people.

  74. 74 : Rose Says:

    I knew Soo Ji’s, that creepy lady, true personality would come out. She only wants to get her hands on Philip’s dad’s money. I knew if she and Philip would have got custody of cute little Tiffany she down the road would not be a good mother to her. Eventually she would come to resent Tiffany.

    Even though Philip is a conniving personality I hope he dumps Soo Ji. It appears Philip did not have a happy or loving childhood, but I do believe he cared for Ahrem. Unfortunately he screwed everything up by going for the money.

    While I guess it was OK that Myung Hwa’ sister & family moved in with them, I think they were suffocating her and made her feel useless. Like she would not hurt herself folding towels. Myung Hwa needs to keep her mind as active as possible at this point. They need to be watchful but not over powering.

  75. 75 : Shaunda Says:

    I really hate to see this series end though I would have preferred a different ending just to throw off everyone. It was too predictable to wed Areum & Seongun. After all the drama, Phillip finally stepped up to the plate and became the man Areum & Tiffany needed. To forgive & return to him would have been a sweet twist. It was through Areum & Tiffany that Phillip finally learned to love. And, I empathize with his orphaned past & him never getting his dream of being in a family which is why forgiving his obsessiveness would have really emphasized the power of second chances. With Areum, Phillip would likely have continued growing as he had begun to do so however keeping him with Suji would ensure his growth would be stifled. Therefore, I would have preferred to see Phillip with Areum then Seongun with Yuni & Suji by herself.
    Also, though it is no longer the norm but for Tiffany’s sake I would have preferred to see Phillip & Areum back together. Why should Tiffany be denied growing up with her daddy who had come to love her more than money and himself. I just knew that after Phillip gave Tiffany back to Areum then Seongun would have acknowledged Phillip’s change & would have sacrificed his own feelings to encourage Areum to return to Phillip just as Yuni did for him by encouraging him to pursue Areum. When Tiffany was irritable, she needed Areum (her mama) to soothe her. When Tiffany’s life was on the line, she needed Phillip (her daddy) to save her. Tiffany needed both of them & for that reason I would have preferred to see it end with them getting married. Their marriage would have conveyed that healing, restoration & the rekindling of love are possible despite the pain from past mistakes & hurts.
    Again, I really wanted to see Phillip and Areum back together. Suji did not deserve to end up with Phillip especially since she would not be a good step mom for Tiffany. If anyone should have ended up alone it should have been Suji, not Yuni.
    The characters –
    Areum – grew from an innocent, unsure girl into a woman. Her positive was that even as a woman she still maintained a level of innocence that seemed very pure. Her negative was all those tears… just about every episode.
    Phillip – grew from his love of money and his obsession to possess others to a man with a heart & a conscious who was not willing to inflict on his child what was inflicted on him as a child. His positives were: (1) he’s absolutely gorgeous, (2) the vulnerability he showed in the early episodes in his pursuit to win back Areum, (3) his transition to anger, rage & revenge, (4) his transition to finally opening his heart, (5) some of his lines were the most memorable & heartfelt. His negative was some of those hairstyles.
    Seongun – grew from immaturity to dependability. His positive was the episode where he displayed such intense emotion while confronting his dad & visiting his mom’s memorial with Areum. His negative was that his character was a little unbelievable because he never had to sacrifice or risk anything or overcome a past shortcoming or tragic flaw therefore his character had lesser depth than Phillip & Areum, in my opinion.
    The family characters were all good. The comic relief characters were Ok though somewhat annoying at times but it appears their purpose was to offset the tense moments from the main story. By the way, what father would allow his daughter to hook up with a man 20yrs her senior in his own house…in Korea? Hummm…
    All in all, I really liked this drama & would like to buy the series just to hear Phillip say some of his memorable lines (“for all the pain I’ve caused, for all the times you’ve cried, I’ll make you that much happier”…ep 19).

    @Shaunda: I agree with all the you said. I so want that Philip’s ex-wife to end up by herself. I just didn’t like her from the start. I also had hoped that somehow the writer would have had Areum end up with Philip instead of the norm ending. I always felt Philip loved Areum in his own way and at the beginning came back to try and get her back. But things got off to a bad start again with Sung Woon in the picture and things just escalated with Philip going after Sung Woon’s company. When Areum was locked in that basement room by yuni and came in late to work in his office I noticed then that he was concerned and worried about her but he never told her and it all just kept getting worse between them.

    I can’t imagine that he loved Suji that he stayed with her. He would have been better off without her.

    I agree an had hoped all along that at the end, the writer would change the odds and get Areum and Philip back together. Unfortunately, most of these drama’s you can always figure out the typical ending.

    Thanks for your very nice post. You did a very good job explaining your thoughts.

    Oh and P.S. I do believe people who are nasty can eventually turn around and be a better person. Not all but some and I think Philip could have been that better person given patience on Areum’s part.

    Rose – I watch YOUTube – call up, KBS World and the drama you want to watch. They are generally subbed. Love and Secret was and they should have all the episodes. Sometimes KBS is behind some of the other groups with subtitles, but I generally just stick to KBS posted ones as they are the same as the TV aired ones. Otherwise, Viki and dramafever also have fairly good subs for most of the dramas. Hope it helps. When KBS “left” our area and switched to KEMS, it took a while before I could figure out what the schedule is. Entertainment weekly and most of the variety shows are also on KBS YouTube. Good luck!

    Becky – thanks for the YT – KBS info. I have watched some of the episodes on YT and other sights, but didn’t know to put KBS World up. I tried it already. Viki does not work for me as it says “it doesn’t work in my area.”

    I was watching about 20 shows on KBS and I just cannot watch all those shows on the computer. Don’t have the time so I really miss the station. It worked better for me on the TV.

    I am having trouble trying to see this show and You Are The Only One, I am behind on the episodes. And some times I miss some of the MBC shows and then try to catch up watching them It has turned out to be a vicious circle for me. KBS has a great show line up and a big variety. MBS not so much.

    Why are they making channel changes – does anyone know???

    I did agree that Ahrem was keeping Philip out of the picture when Tiffany needed a transplant and glad the she admitted to him that she was pushing him away, even though he might not have heard it since he was unconscious. I was surprised after Ahrem was not a match, it took forever for some one to think of Philip as probably being a match. It took Ahrem’s aunt to suggest it.

    I know Philip was a devil – but I did like him and I believe he really did care for Ahrem, but he didn’t show it in the right way when he came back to Korea. Oh well…..
