This is one of the dramas I would like to binge watch just because 2 episodes per week ain't enough. It's a very typical kdrama romance, but very light on the angst so it's very enjoyable to watch. I never expected much from the leads. I've only seen SungHoon in Noble, my love and I'm not impressed with the acting there but he is a surprise in MSR, he improved alot in read more the acting department and I especially liked the way his eyes expressed how he feels during the last part of the ep 1, the one night stand. I felt that the acting on both leads made the scene passionate but less racy. The story so far is fast moving, no unnecesaary scenes (the beauty of 12 episodes).
I recemmend this to those looking for a romcom with great kissing scenes.

I started watching this drama becoz of Sung Hoon and the synopsis. I saw his other dramas Noble my love, Five enough(good character) and was impressed.

The episodes were bang on and fast paced unlike other dramas which i liked very much.

Music : There is good music but not that impactful.

Acting : The chemistry between the lead pair is amazing. The other actors also played their roles aptly.

Story : read more The story is some what mature and refreshing. As the genre stated here it is a simple romantic comedy. The characters are well written. The interaction b/n MC and secretary gives us a comic relief.
Also DO NOT Forget to watch scenes after end credits in each episode, those are hilarious scenes edited out of main part.

As the story progressess it will become even good but for now 9 / 10

They have the same director, thus they have both cute drawings in each episode and the same music.
The lead actress of Something About 1 Percent even appears in a cameo role in the beginning.

The same type of plot, cute, cheesey, and it's got the main guy in it!

    I love the show, just wish she would enunciate more...less talking with her mouth pursed so it sounds like she is talking with her mouth almost closed. It is bothersome to me. With that said, I think I am going back and rewatch that scene on the beach in ep 1. <sigh> LOL :D

    I came to know about this drama just a day before it was going to air. I watched teasers and read plot and I was happy that I got a new on air drama to watch after Strong Woman. I loved it from first episodes with just 4 episodes out I am loving this drama, It is defiantly a drama with a lot of typical cliches but not a single scene is boring. It feels like oh! the episode ended already. And it's only 12 episodes. I like the main lead even more have seen him noble my love, oh my venus.

    How is it that people are already putting out reviews when there are only like 4 episodes?! I thought MDL said that you'd have to wait for the show to be done before posting.

    Wanted to watch this on dramafever but only 2 episodes are available for free the rest are premium so I would have to pay. Is this Dramafever's new thing now where only premium members can watch their exclusive drama? Cause it used to be that episodes were exclusive for premium users for 1 week and then was free to the public. Is it not like this anymore?

      Yea it sucks. Even viki does that too. I stopped using dramafever and viki but luckily there are sites that upload dramas where you can watch for free. You can watch this at dramafire

    over used cliche plots are the best when it's done right with good looking leads that have great chemistry ;)

    They need to clone this director. Something About 1%, My Secret Romance...this kind of romcom realism is what kdrama needs.

      That's my guess. Sort of a lite version of Loving, Never Forgetting. I'm betting on some good feels later on. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
