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.

    You realize you're old when even hot half-naked guys cannot save the drama from being dropped...

      what i mean that, EVEN if (but impossible) the 3rd or 4th episode are ready to be aired... there is no way to be leaked. bcz OCN (the channel) has a gr8 copywrite legal team. so as angelina said it might be a bot or a virus. there is no way to make those links exist. in the review.
      the drama just started and only two eps have been aired. thats what i meant

    My Secret Romance reminds me o cotton candy...colorfully fluffy and artificially sweet but in a strange magical way that makes me happy.

    not the type of show I would usually watch, but I like it so far, it's light and the eye candy does not hurt

    I'll wait til at least half the eps are out. I know there's a secret child somewhere in this.

      Well, I mean, the premise is one big cliche so give it to me. I want it as well.

    Those replayed, slowmo romantic scenes with the cloudy filter is soo oldschool, geeez, i'm feelin' nostalgic! :D

    So far its cheezy af, has all the clichés we've seen a million times and not so convincing leads. Not sure if i'm masochistic enough for this one, the cheezyness level really hits my limit.
    Lets decide after next week's episodes tho, maybe it will be a surprise. i'm an optimistic person. :)

    Usually when we dislike something in the beginning, the show slowly turned wonderful. Let's keep complain and finger-crossed for they will make this show better. ^_^ (I'm here for Sung Hoon anyway)

    couldn't get into it; the writing is bad, the editing is agitating, and the acting is pretty weak. the whole thing just seems so outdated.

    any recommendations for dramas like this, romantic comedies for a bit older audience?

      You should try Go Ho's starry night as well. Definitely a fun watch :)

      You should check out One More Happy Ending. It feels kind of similar, and it focuses on more mature couples.
