Do Min Ik was known as a face reader, an executive who no one keep secrets from. After his accident he has trouble getting his confidence back but with help from Jung Gal Hee he begins to aim for the spot of CEO.
One day Do Min Ik goes to a blind date but unfortunately his date went to a different place. Jung Gal Hee takes her place as Do Min Ik’s date but can she dump him after seeing how nice he is to her as a man not her boss?
As secondary couple The Secret Life of My Secretary has Do Min Ik’s childhood friend, Ki Dae Joo (Koo Ja Sung) and Veronica Park (Kim Jae Kyung), the chaebol heiress Do Min Ik was supposed to go on a date with. How can these four balance their relationships with all the secrets and mistaken identities around them?
I wasn’t initially even going to start watching The Secret Life of My Secretary but in my boredom I gave it a try. At first I loved the dedication Jung Gal Hee had for her boss and her job. Then I loved their teamwork and this drama started to remind me of What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?.
Then the actual drama of Do Min Ik falling in love with who he thought was Veronica started and I got a bit bored. This would have been a great drama if they would have simply fallen in love or not, remaining as a perfect team at work. I can’t seem to get on board with the drama and revelations that are bound to happen here at some point…
Still The Secret Life of My Secretary is a fun series. The romance can be great if it ever can really start because of the lies told. Maybe, maybe. We shall see.
