5 Things We Loved & 2 Things We Hated About The Premiere Of “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim”
tvN’s new romantic comedy, “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” stars Park Seo Joon as the arrogant and vain vice president of a big company and Park Min Young as his secretary. There was a lot of anticipation leading up to this K-drama as it is based on a really popular webtoon. But, if anyone were able to pull off meeting expectations, it would be Park Seo Joon and Park Min Young, am I right? Here’s a look at five things we loved and two things we hated about the first two episodes of “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim.”
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
1. LOVED: How quickly the drama got into the meat of the plot
First episodes can be a hit or miss for me as it’s basically the episode where a lot of groundwork for the plot is made. What I thoroughly enjoyed about the first episode of this particular drama is that it went straight into Park Min Young’s character, Kim Mi So, quitting her job. There’s really not a moment to be bored, which I’m totally digging.
2. LOVED: How Lee Young Joon was in love with Kim Mi So and he didn’t even know it
There are several hints made throughout the premier that show how Lee Young Joon had never been with another girl or dated another girl because he had his secretary by his side. He doesn’t seem to be bothered by the fact that he isn’t dating and this is probably because he has been in love with his secretary the whole time!
That’s what I’d like to think anyway. It’s cute.
He can’t even sleep when Kim Mi So quit. He’s in love!
3. LOVED: The proposal
Yes, it is jumping the gun and it’s random, but it totally had me squealing at the end of the first episode. I couldn’t wait to watch the second episode!
4. LOVED: Lee Young Joon’s insistence that he’s amazing
Lee Young Joon is a character that many would dislike. He’s arrogant, selfish, and always gets his way, but rather than his character getting annoying, I found him to be pretty funny!
When you don’t understand why she doesn’t want to be with you:
5. HATED: That creepy dream!
In the second episode, we get more of a glimpse into the history of Young Joon. He has some sort of freakish nightmare that revolves around a woman. We don’t know who this woman is yet, but the dream is creepy. I don’t even want to post a screen cap of it ’cause it had me that scared. Every arrogant chaebol in a K-drama has to have some sort of baggage, I suppose, but why’s it have to be so scary?!
Instead, here’s a screen cap of Young Joon the morning after he had that horrific dream:
6. ALSO LOVED: This intimate neck-tie tying scene
It seems as though our selfish chaebol has a sensitive side. We know that he has some baggage with a mysterious woman, but he seems to have a soft-spot for Mi So, which I love!
7. HATE: Having to wait until next week to watch the next episode!
I loved the ending of episode 2. Mainly because it is such a sweet gesture for Young Joon to close down the amusement park just for Mi So, but also because it seems like Young Joon hasn’t given up on his secretary and wanting to date her.
I can’t wait until next week!
