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.

    2 things I don't really get....why her friend, the 2nd lead, hasn't confessed to her all this time. He seems like a confident guy down to earth guy. (I have 2nd lead syndrome, I have to admit)...and the other thing I don't get is why the heck she keeps pretending she knows what's in that jewelry box. Its such a weird story line...frankly, it would have made total sense for her to tell him she brought her little brother and he broke it than to go thru all these weird gyrations.

    I would have liked more showtime tonite...

      Most women her mom's age are not typically having honeymoon baby's. On top of that, her mother used to be a porn star. I feel like her character never wants to bring up the topic of her Mom, for fear that it will lead to them finding out her mom is an "erotic" actress. ... And of course, if she explains that she has a little brother now... it will not allow him to have a misunderstanding later about the baby, that called her Mom and is the exact right age to be their love child. lol.

      I get your frustration about the friend not confessing. I think it will become more clear later, why her friend has not confessed. Also - Girls often pretend not to know and play it off as a joke, when a friend they are not romantically interested in broaches the topic. I think he is picking up the cues that she is dropping. And - The friend zone is real.

    the lead actor is cute but sometime his acting is out of place most specially when he's trying to make us laugh... i think action scene is much better for him , but I'm looking forward to this drama i hope it will improve for the next episode

    What's the point of the epilogues? Some of those scenes seem so random.

      That's exactly what I think. I keep expecting them to reveal something new, but most have literally been like weird flashbacks.

      The small comments on the bottom of the screen make the epilogues funny. Not sure if those are subbed in the eng sub version.

      They are subbed, but maybe they are subbed poorly so it's not funny to me.

    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.
