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 am writing this review after watching 4 episodes. It is funny and there is not a moment of boredom. Every episode had made me laugh. The actors have good chemistry. So, if you want to watch a funny, romantic and a cool drama this one is for you.

This drama is fantastic and romantic, but is not cliche.
The man is cute and girl afraid of relationships.

The male leads give off the same vibe. Lie to Me the male lead is a bit more stiff. The female leads are somewhat similar. Also the second male leads are similar. My Secret Romance is like a more light hearted version.

    I officially dropped this drama . Yeah at the beginning it was interesting,but to me there's no excitement. It's like I don't feel like I'm waiting for the next episode​ or wondering what is going to happen. Sorry...

    I believe Sung Hoon needs to work a little bit on his acting.

      7 first kisses cant be really taken as drama more like long commercial. But I agree about cheesiness...

    the ratings in my drama list are so messy... some old awesome dramas have 6.5-7.5 ratings, and this new dramas with so so plot easily get above 8.0

      Right. All top rated dramas are mostly new and some not so good drama get much high ratings.

    • Reply

      I always try to take into account the actors' popularity and the 'newness' of the drama when I look at the rating. I won't watch a new drama with popular actors unless its above say an 8, but I might look really hard at an older drama with a less-than-stellar cast with only a 7. It really takes some work XD

      I don't really care about rating just the plot info and comments of those who have watched the drama and max 4 epi tp decide whether to continue it or drop it but it differs for on air dramas.
