This was my first Kdrama and I loved everything about the story, how the ML loved the FL unconditionally and without judging her and how she lived her life and stuck with her through it all as young as he was; a good number of viewers hesitate to watch this show and shows like this in general for several of these reasons: it’s about adultery; it probably condones adultery; it’s probably salacious, titillating audiences with an affair between a much older woman and a much younger man. Secret Love Affair is none of that, it is not at all the cheap watch that some might assume it to be. Thoughtfully written, expertly directed and executed with an excellent cast, Secret Love Affair is an absorbing, immersive watch that is at once the story of a man, the journey of a woman, and an uncompromising study of human nature and what it means to really and truly love and live unconditionally and without expectation. I fount it to be deep, mature, and thought-provoking, and well worth my time and most definitely your time.
