In a video released by her agency Namoo Actors, Park Min Young shared her thoughts on the drama. The actress appeared as the lead Kim Mi So in the romantic comedy.
She began, “I was happy every second while acting as Mi So, and nervous and joyful along with her. I often thought while living as Mi So and not receiving any stress, ‘was there a time I was ever this happy?’ Every day was a fun day of filming that made me think this way, so I think it’ll stay with me even more.”
She continued, “The original work of ‘What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim’ had many fans, and it was a drama that had many expectations and concerns, so I also was worried. It was a drama where I tried my best.”
She added, “I don’t know if [the viewers] realized my sincerity or the completion of the drama made me that way, but many people said that I looked like Mi So, so it was a meaningful drama for me. Unlike other dramas, this was the first time where I happily wondered ‘What can I do to make it more fun, funnier?’ So, it was a happy drama for me in many ways, and since it also received so much love, it was a happy drama that I could not ask more of.”
Park Min Young concluded, “What’s important now is what lies ahead. Since we happily let Mi So go, I’ll be back with a good project. Thank you for loving Kim Mi So in ‘What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim,’ and I hope you’ll send off Mi So with a pretty smile with me. I’ll see you next time.”

She stated, “I really thank director Park Joon Hwa, the writer, actors, and all of the staff who were on set with me. Thanks to them, I had fun learning on every episode. It doesn’t feel real that the end is already here. Two months flew by and I’m sad that I wasn’t able to show you more. Despite that, I really thank the viewers for sending me lots of support and love.”
