I’m currently hooked with this new K-drama, My Secret Romance starring Sung Hoon and Song Ji Eun of Secret. It’s OCN’s, a cable network, first drama venture together with DramaFever and Godin Media. It airs every Monday and Tuesday, at 9PM, KST, directed by Kang Cheol Woo, and written by Kim Ha Na. However, avid drama fans could watch the episodes three days earlier on SK Telecom’s “oksusu” mobile app. Talk about spoilers galore!
My Secret Romance (2017)
Hangul: 애타는 로맨스
Alternative Title: Aetaneun Romaenseu
Genre: Romance, Comedy
So the plot is pretty much your average one night stand Korean drama storyline, between a second generation chaebol guy Cha Jin Wook (Sung Hoon), and an average girl working as the company nutritionist, Lee Yoo Mi (Song Ji Eun). They met up at a resort, had a series of mix-ups and ends up having a one night stand, only to meet three years after.
The amazing chemistry between the two main leads however is what’s making the show have a very large following at the moment. Sung Hoon, being known among fans to be a good kisser, adds more feels in the drama. Also not to mention the quirky mother of Yoo Mi (Nam Gi Ae), and her cute little brother, or could be love child, (Joo Sang Hyuk). Other casts include Kim Jong Goo, Kim Jae Young, Jung Da Sol, Lee Hae In, Park Shin Woon, Kim Si Young, Im Do Yoon, and Baek Seung Heon.
It’s currently airing its 7th and 8th episodes this week. Can’t wait to see how the story unfolds with the remaining episodes.
