One of the best melodrama I've ever seen and also one of the best dramas period. To be honest when I first started watching it, I dropped it at the first episode because it bored me, but then I tried it again after reading the reviews and right then and there I was hooked. I pretty much finished in 2 days and didnt even skip a second of it. Everything about this read more drama is perfect, from the cast to the acting, to the story, the romance and the chemistry between the leads were incredible Hwang jung eum's acting was on a different level. I actually cried every time she cried. (lots of crying in this one) That was how convincing she was. Ji sung was amazing too but I feel like his talent is showing more on KMHM. In the end of it all, this drama broke me into little tiny pieces but I will never regret watching it and re-watching it over and over again.

Oh my this ONE abused the sht out of my heart!

The acting was amazing. There was so much crying, but each one never lost its value.

It was a btch to get through since most the story was so sad, but I suggest you don't watch it in such a narrow minded view. Put yourself in each characters point of view and try to understand each one because for me that's read more what made it bearable.

I finished the series in 2 days because I felt so bad for KYJ and I was just eagerly just waiting for her to do her quirky adorable laugh. I really hate sad dramas, but I got a much greater "feel good moment" effect from the little bits and pieces of happiness in this drama then a drama dedicated completely for "feel good moments".

I fell in love with the main couple. Look at my list I usually drop as soon as the main couple gets together but on this one I kept going because I actually wanted them to get closer and closer. To me their love was believable and on episode 15 their was a moment I even cried out of jealously because it is the kind of pure love I truly want.( you will understand when you get there)

What I also liked about this was the deaths weren't just some random conveniently timed events. Each one had a purpose and were connected. We didn't the moments where a character finds something out, and right then they die that usually happens from a out of the blue car accident.. Like that sht makes me go CRAZY!

Re watch value of me was low because I don't think my heart can handle it lol.

Both female leads are blamed for the death of the male lead's girlfriend. But in Secret, the female lead doesn't really killed the girlfriend of the male lead, she just took the responsibility for what her fiancee did. Also, both aggressive male leads.

the main characters are the same and you will still get the same excitement as you did watching Secret.

    I will always hate this drama. I hate when abuse and cruelty are romanticized, it's twisted. And it's scary how many people like it and overlook the cruelty because of the idealized obsession. Reminds me of slap-kiss lakorns or Sealed with a kiss and Le Jun Kai. Only good point is the very high quality of the acting but other than that I find main and second male lead awful and unredeemable for what they did to the female. And the female lead pitiful and at the same time pathetic for being so sacrificial and too much in denial.
    Really as popular as it is, I really dislike the story, and found the "love" between main couple very unhealthy...Stockholm syndrome type of love imo.

      I hate this drama more than anything I have ever watched. Ji Sung's character is despicable and Hwang Jung Eum spends 97% of the drama as a crying doormat. The only thing missing is cheating and I would find a way to give it a negative rating

    This drama made me cry. I haven't cry in front of a drama in a while. What I like about it: realistic, the main lead couple and what happen to them is also believable. I recommend this drama and if you like this genre you will also like Mask.
    I particularly liked the main lead couple in terms of acting and characters in the drama.

    I am at episode 8 now. If this guy, after realizing she was innocent, doesn't BEG ON HIS ROTTEN KNEES for the rest of this drama for forgiveness for tormenting her, I am going to throw sth at the screen. Would be the most perversed love story in dramaland history!!!

    One of the BEST dramas I have watched at that chemistry between Ji Sung and Jung Em is just simply electric and amazing and since then hope they act in more roles together and was happy when they got another drama to act in so soon. Really recommend this drama really a great drama

    Finally finished this today. And it makes me so relieved! I expected this to eventually become more and more interesting, and after episode 8 I really felt like maybe I'll finally start enjoying watching this.. In the end I think it might've been better if I just dropped it. I did not find it interesting, I can't say it was draggy, because a lot of stuff was happening -- and sometimes so much I really got confused. Especially in the first episode(s). I kept on watching this to see how the two main lead's relationship would develop but in the end I couldn't even really believe they actually have something, I did not see the chemistry.
    In the end I am quite dissapointed, I expected something much better, but now the rating I ended up giving this drama is 3.5..

    Just finished episode 8 and it's the first time while watching this drama when I feel the need to start the next episode asap. So far I don't really get the hype about this drama, like the first episode was super boring and the acting was not good. I remember pausing it in the middle and then procrastinating to watch the other 30 minutes.. But it picks up a bit, and the acting gets better. Also, I very much think that this is going to be the only drama with Bae Subin I'll ever watch, his facial expressions are too.. I don't know, weird. :D
    I feel like Hwang Jungeum is also the best actress in this, Jisung's somehow slightly lacking. But that's just my opinion, I'm not hating on him -- or Bae Subin, by the way!

    I loved this drama so much. I can't believe the chemistry between Ji sung and Jung Eum. I'm going to start watching Kill Me, Heal Me right away just because of them. Amazing couple.
