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.

    It had a promising start and i enjoyed it the first 3-4 episodes, but now that i made it to ep 11(fast forwarding the last 3), i decided just to drop it since i find it simply to boring overall.
    To me the whole show is just to cliche, boring story, predictable and overall meh, the mains chemistry is nearly none existing and imo poorly acted(the scenes that is supposed to pull your hearth strings just comes of as fake and i feel nothing).

    The story is cliched and corny that I skip a lot of scenes.
    What makes it even worse is that the acting is pretty bad.

    Episode 11 was pretty useless. Mostly flashbacks and pretty much ZERO plot development. Total filler episode.

    Anyone else think the music at the beginning is odd? It reminds me of a 1970's game show.
