The secret life of my secretary was a 2019 drama starring Kim Young-kwang as Do Min-ik and Jin Ki-joo as Jung Gal-hee. Do Min-ik is an intelligent, yet a needy and problematic boss who works at T&T Mobile Media. He calls out for his secretary for everything and he is known to never keeps a secretary for more than a year and Jung Gal-hee is an obedient, lively secretary who goes above and beyond for her boss. she does everything for him even if that means missing her own mothers memorial service in hope that he might change his mind about the one year rule and hire her permanently but he ended up firing her.
Min-ik got a call from his only close and trusted friend Ki Dae-joo to meet on a boat and as he was waiting, someone got on the boat with him and looks like a robbery and at the same time, Gal-hee was having some drinks with her secretary friends. After having one too many, they all decided to take revenge on min-ik and kill him but they all bailed at the last minute except for Gal-hee. as she was about to get to the boat, she noticed Min-ik struggling with someone in which she helped him oit but Min-ik fell and hit his head but not before he saw the face of his attacker.
When Min-ik woke up at the hospital, he realize he cant recognize peoples faces which made him freak out and panicked and he also realize that the only face he could recognize is Jung Gal-hee. OK, so before i continue with this, can Korean dramas please stop with the classic face blindness troupe already? i feel like they use that when they are stuck. We get it, we understand that it’s quit difficult to come up with a story that’s engaging but please no more face blindness. Thank you.
So, i know i said the face blindness troupe is getting old but at the same time, its kinda refreshing seeing a character just finding out they have it and seeing how scared they are and how they are trying to deal with it as suppose to meeting them years after they’ve developed it.
Min-ik asked Dae-joo why he didnt show up on the boat? Dae-joo told him something came up but Min-ik did not belive him asking Dae-joo if hes hiding anything from him?(Min-ik already noticed Dae-joo on the CCTV camera while looking into the attack at the police station.) Dae-joo replied maybe but he’ll tell Min-ik at that place(the name of the boat) and Dae-joo asked Min-ik the same question to which Min-ik answered the same way.
After failing to recognize his mother at an art gallery, Min-ik went back to the doctors in a panic telling them to fix him and that something can’t happen to his brain again.(he had head surgery when he was seven)
Min-ik went to Dal-hee asking/begging her to come back to work and she asked why should she come back that’s when he finally told her the truth that he can’t see anyones face but hers. she decided to go back working for him(the trotters he brought her as a bribe might have helped her decision a bit). Dal-hee’s little sister Nam-hee got accepted into the university of Pennsylvania.
The police got a video footage of Dae-joo speakig to Min-iks attacker on the night of the incident and while Min-ik and Dal-hee were talking in his office, a man came in and introduced himself as Eun-Jeong-su, Min-iks new driver.
This drama so far, so good. Love the chemistry between the two lead actors and i have high hopes for this drama. HAPPY WATCHING!!!!!!!
