- they both kind of start at bad steps.
- there is another love interest.
Recommended by Moka
both have the "cold rich male lead with a traumatic past", and they both have a mature/grownup ish romance.. with a strong female lead...
also, the parents in both dramas are more supportive than the usual romcom parent ;p

From the sypnosis, sounds like The Secret Life of My Secretary is similar to What's Wrong with Secretary Kim.

Both have bosses that fall in love with their secretaries. Both have secretaries that is a long time trusted worker for the boss and they are the only ones who knows what the boss likes.

Both Refresh Man and What's Wrong With Secretary Kim have few similarities, such as leads knowing each other when they were younger, the CEO/ employee relationship, the impossible to please boss, rich man, poor woman trope. The reason I do recommend Refresh Man if you liked What's Wrong with Secretary Kim is they both are written well despite their overuse of certain tropes and cliches.

They both have a boss and employer relationship.
The male leads both have a traumatic past which the female leads will help them move on from or improve.
Main couples have similar chemistry/relationships.
Both are: thriller, comedy, mystery, and romance...

A love story between the boss and the secretary. Unlike the common chaebol parents, the parents in both drama are very nice and love the female lead. Both dramas are very funny. The chemistry is also great.

Pretty similar office rom-com dramas. They have the overlapping "mean boss" and the lovable main female lead.

-Romcom with a cute, mature romance that isn't bogged down with unnecessary drama. Drama is solved quickly and doesn't drag on ridiculously like most other dramas.
-Love triangle never really develops and gets in the way of the main couple.
-Amazing kissing! Not just the lip touches like every other drama I've seen. Real, in love kisses.

Same director, so it creates a similar feel. If you laugh while watching What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim, Because This Is My First Life will make you laugh.
Both male leads don’t believe in love, but end up falling in love.
Funny important person giving advice to the male lead.
Same sound effects.

Secretary Kim has similar vibes to the romanace and comedy, taking on a more refreshing approach of the typical bad/cold guy thrope. However, Cheese in the Trap incorporates more of the sinister sides of liking someone with a hard to deal with personally while Sceretary Kim is more in the romcom sphere.

1 Has a similar boss/secretary workplace romance
2. ML has been suffering from trauma and the secretary helps him
Recommended by Arihant D
Both feature boss x employee relationship
same vibe, both female leads are somehow naive when it comes to love
and both male leads at first are confused about their feeling towards the female lead
