Hidden Gem

Watch the show for what it is. A heart warming youth drama that encourages you to follow your dreams and be true to yourself. It strays from the actual webtoon but the screenwriter did a great job creating an original storyline that stands on its own. And how adorable and awesome is Kim Hyang Gi! Stellar performance. She did carry the show but with good effort by the supporting cast. It’s a shame that there has been zero promotions for this show! Shame on Hulu Japan and TVING. Hope it is streamed on Viki soon for the rest of the world! Can’t wait for KHG’s next project!

It was good

First of all, I would like to say that I love these two actors, they are both in dramas that I really love.

So, okay: I discovered this drama on Instagram, and decided to watch. I started the drama before all episodes air, so, when I finally got to watch the last two remaining episodes, I was so excited to see how things would end.

Secret Playlist is a delicate drama, with a simple script, but a complex approach to psychological issues, grief and family relationships. Not forgetting, of course, the criticism of the kpop industry, which I think was very strong.

The first six episodes gave me a young romantic comedy feeling that I miss in kdramas. The type of university romance that also brings deeper psychological issues, but without leaving the slice of life part aside. There's the idol and anonymous trope that I personally really like. And the actors' chemistry was ok, I liked it; I just think the kisses were bad, but I didn't expect much from a series that doesn't seem to have an approach focused on more physical love.

Anyway, I really liked Secret Playlist, I think it's a good series about young people, dreams and personal growth, but some elements in the last two episodes made it - a little - superficial.

Maybe I expected a little more from this drama, but I wish the issue of the their album hadn't been resolved in such a superficial way or, at least, that the FL had a chance to develop musically.

In my opinion, we had a great start and a warm ending.

And, yes, i really liked the drama's soundtrack
