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.

      Maybe because of the South Korean presidential election. Not sure, though.

    im rlly loving the sexual agency that women have been given so far in this drama. her mom is a former adult film star and isnt ashamed of it, shes shown reading a smut book like its no big deal and compared to other dramas she was assertive ab participating during the love scene instead of being portrayed as a super pure innocent virgin. this is also the first time ive seen a drama deal w consent, even if it was just a two second moment.
    i dont want to get too ahead of myself but its giving me hope that aside from being a typical sweet romance drama, it might keep showing healthy female sexuality ^^
    this is being produced by ocn and dramafever (its the first romcom drama ocn has produced; they also made 38 task force,bad guys and tunnel) and dramafever is so far the only place online where the ratings are counted, so watch it there if you can. im keeping my fingers crossed that it gets enough support for people to notice and copy the good things theyve done so far

      I noticed the quick consent scene as well and was initially surprised because I don't think I have ever seen it in a drama before. It's a very nice detail.

      yup, My Secret Romance was pre-produced without any network attached to it (also like the PD's previous work, Something About 1%) and OCN only picked it up later on

      so i'm kinda sad when i read a comment how they drop a drama because of how "low budget" it looks. they honestly have to give props to the staff and crew for putting up a decent (if not, nice) drama ^^

      I loved all of that too. I've been getting so happy about the fact that males in K-Dramas aren't sticking to gender roles by only playing 'masculine, cold, rich, businessmen' that don't know how to use or show emotions. I like that they're starting to change up the scripts and characters and show that emotions don't make you weak. I also love that they didn't shy away from sex and club culture or kissing as if it's a big taboo. I think it's good to show those things so people don't believe South Korea is as innocent as all the dramas we watch would like us to believe. Also what consent scene? Did I totally miss that?
