# k-drama review # recommendation


Assalamualaikum, good day dearest ! For this week k-drama review, it will be an old drama that I just watched and enjoyed really much. It was the first drama that starred Ji Sung and Hwang Jung Eum before 'Kill Me, Heal Me'.

Title : Secret / Secret Love
Episodes : 16
Genre : Drama, Romance
Director : Lee Eung Book, Baek Sang Hoon
Writer : Choi Ho Chul, Lee Bo Ra
Network : KBS2
Cast : Ji Sung, Hwang Jung Eum, Bae Soo Bin, Lee Da Hae
Plot : 

Yoo Jung decided that she would take the blame in a hit-and-run case instead of her prosecutor-to-be boyfriend, Do Hoon. The woman who died is a girlfriend to a chaebol of K Group, Min Hyuk. He was determined to destroy Yoo Jung's life as she destroyed his. After serving her sentence, Yoo Jung was betrayed by Do Hoon and left miserable. While observing Yoo Jung, Min Hyuk slowly fall in love with her but he had to get married to his childhood friend, Shin Se Yeon.


This drama is so well made! When I first read the synopsis, my mind went to 'Nice Guy' drama. A drama starring Song Joong Ki. It had a similar plot so I am excited on how this drama would unfold. I really love the plot and especially the character development. 

Just like 'Kill Me, Heal Me', Ji Sung and Hwang Jung Eum really had a very good chemistry on screen ! I could see the hatred Min Hyuk had for Yoo Jung in the beginning of the drama. And how that hatred turned into obsession. His constant need to know where she is and whether she is okay or not. And eventually, he fall for her character despite their situation. Just like people said, 'there's a fine line between love and hate.' and look where they were at the end.

I don't remember how much I cried while pitying Yoo Jung. Everyone was so cruel to her but she still smile and act like nothing happened. She was so nice that I can't understand. How can she sacrifice everything for a so-called love. And even with her love, it wasn't enough for Do Hoon and his family, especially his mother. As a woman herself, she keep doing things that would only benefited her son and forget all of the things she had received from Yoo Jung. Oh, I hate her so much!

Do Hoon really became venomous after he rose in ranking. Trying to take over K Group when he had no qualification. He really is shameless. After using Yoo Jung, he went as far as using Se Yeon. That was so low of him. And to think that he even abandon his own son and Yoo Jung's father, he deserves nothing. So glad that Yoo Jung find her justice. Se Yeon is one pitiful character. She keep holding on her love for Min Hyuk even though he had make clear of his feeling to her. She ended up hurting again and again. It was a mess that she, herself didn't want to clean.

All in all, it was a great drama to watch and I really recommended this to everyone. It was full will hatred, love and sadness. I was really grateful that Yoo Jung had her friends from the prison to keep her afloat. The ending was very great as both Yoo Jung and Min Hyuk had what they wanted.
