It actually is no SECRET how much I loved Secret. Very rarely does a drama come along and completely obliterate all other dramas for a spot in my ultimate top 5 dramas. This came right out of left field.
Here’s the backstory: Min Hyuk is a rich guy who has everything but a good personality, and burns with revenge after he found out his lover was killed in a hit-and-run accident. Yoo Jung is a woman who takes blame for those accident. She is a woman who refuses to give up on life even though she′s been thrown into despair. She goes to prison in her boyfriend’s place who causes the hit-and-run accident but she gets betrayed in the end. [cr: http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Secret_Love]
It doesn’t have ghosts, time travel, or instant “I Love You” emotions.. and thats why its so good.
The cast really made this drama stand out. Besides Ji Sung, I was ehhh about the cast at first, but they totally proved me wrong. If any other actors/actresses has been in this I would not have liked it as much..
Ji FREAKING Sung. The range of emotions that he showed in this drama almost destroyed me. Rage, Revenge, Love.
Now Hwang Jung-eum has TOTALLY been redeemed in my drama eyes from that disaster of Full House 2. It proved to me that she really can pull off this type of role. Seriously, give her all the awards for this drama.
Ohhhhh Bae soo bin. See… at first I thought maybe he was the weak link in this drama, but his acting was actually spot on.
Choi Woong as Gwang Soo might be my favorite wingman. He had like 2 lines, but I still noticed him in the background. He has a few dramas under his belt… I wonder what he will do next?
What I learned from this drama is if all your friends keep talking about a how great a drama is… you freaking jump on that bandwagon. I don’t recommend dramas easily but this one is a keeper!
