L, an angel who’s endlessly fascinated with the human world, gets into trouble when she unthinkingly saves the life of Han Shi Yeong, a man who was meant to die. To make up for her mistake she must guard him on Earth for one hundred days and keep him safe from Hwan, a death god who is required to collect his soul. Both supernatural beings must contend with the knowledge that whichever one of them fails by the end of the hundred days will be erased from existence, and the longer they stay on Earth the further their powers fade and the more human they become.

What to say the drama, is one of them with a intresting plot that you would enjoy to rewatch without getting bored, Since the drama is really short!

But at the same time the fact that the drama is so short is its loss.. Watching this drama you will notice that the story flow a bit to fast!
There are a lot of happenings but there isn't the time for the public to emphatize with them, since they are to fast!

But in any case i really enjoyed the story! It's a simple story of a clumsy angel that "wrongly" save an human.. That is a cute plot, not a master piece. But a story that a really large rage of people can enjoy!

I like the actors since they are handsome and they have good acting skills, the famale lead is particularly funny!

So give it a shot!

While I can tell from an objective standpoint that Secret Angel isn’t the highest quality production overall, it manages to be sufficiently endearingly charming and entertaining that I don’t mind any shortcomings it may have. The plot is pretty straightforward—it’s really just an innocent love story that develops between an angel and human while the angel does her best to protect the human from the machinations of a death god—and in this case, it works. It’s not a series I get heavily emotionally invested in when I watch it, but I always enjoy the ride.

The story is what draws me in every time, and the actors all played their roles convincingly enough. It’s interesting to watch the various characters cope with the situations thrown at them, from the more humorous moments like the first official and exceedingly awkward meeting between the human and angel after she’s charged with protecting him, to the more serious aspects like the death god being all too aware that slowly becoming human means gaining unwanted human emotions.

The music suits the drama pretty well, though there are only about two or three songs with lyrics throughout the whole show and those are mostly limited to the beginning and end of each episode. Even so, the opening song in particular is so cheerful and upbeat that I’m perfectly willing to keep it in my head for a few days.

As for the subject of the male lead’s voice getting dubbed into Korean, I can kinda see both sides of the issue. On the one hand (assuming the actor wasn’t proficient in Korean) it would be odd if only one character were speaking in another language and it wasn’t acknowledged by any of the other characters, and if it was acknowledged it would’ve almost certainly distracted from the story’s intended focus. And to be fair, I think whoever provided the dubbed voice did a solid job on conveying the appropriate emotions for the character in any given scene. On the other hand, it was kinda distracting to be able to tell the words I was hearing didn’t quite match the movement of the actor’s mouth, and I would’ve liked to be able to hear the actor’s own intonations and how he chose to deliver the lines.

So ultimately, would I recommend this drama to others? Absolutely! It’s sweet, charming, and has a touch of melancholy to it without ever getting too dark, and at only two and a half-ish hours total it can be completed in one sitting. I’ve rewatched it multiple times over the years and I’ll probably return to it again in the future.
