  1. I'm just now watching ep 12--work getting in the way. Now we understand why it was so difficult for YJ when he would try to kiss KSM. He would always be overwhelmed with imagines from is kidnapping. I always wondered why those images would appear when he wanted to take the lead in kissing her. He was okay if she was kissing him. It was the fact that there was still this secret between them. He was still wearing the cloak of "YJ" in front of KSM. When the truth came out about what really happened, not by the kidnapper, but within his family and him pretending to be YJ, he finally had freedom from his past. I have to say that the mother should be ashamed. Just because she didn't want her son to be admitted to a hospital to deal with his mental health, she continued to let the son who had been kidnapped abused by his brother. Then when YJ/SY "lost his memory" and "thought" he was YJ instead of SY the parents went alone with this craziness. That was a blinding read flag for any parent the when you have two sons who have switched identity that something major is going on from a mental health perspective, but the parents did nothing because it made it easier for them. So when they die, despite their legal paperwork of their birth names, going to be buried under their brother's name? There are 4 episodes left so wonder what else will happen. Really good episode, but I did think it was a little slow.
  2. Just finished ep 11. Love that episode so much because it provided details of what happened to them. Also, I have to say that YJ was such a little man as he protected MS from the horror of their experience when they were children. He suppressed his own fears in order to take care of her. I also feel sorry that he had to lose his name in an effort to help his brother cope with his guilt. He also later again kept her by his side--that really romantic when you think about it.
  3. No @kool_buddy, welcome back, @dramaninja is also watching. Although on another thread I tried to change his gender , but he kindly gave me a pass. Glad to have you here.
  4. My dear friend @Kasmic, thank you for directing me to review @princessfiana's post who shed so much like on the dynamics between LSY and LYJ. I pretty much figured out based on what LYJ said that his brother had mentally switched their roles. I have to admit that was very poor advice from the doctor because it gave no consideration to the younger child who had been kidnapped and the trauma he was dealing with; there was no plan it seems to help LSY deal with his actions and the guilt he was feeling. Again, I appreciate you wonderful ladies!!!
  5. @chubbz, Thanks for jogging my memory in regards to KMS' research regarding the concealed identity of the two boys. There was something else that was mentioned in the drama that made me think it was publicly said the eldest son was the one kidnapped--not just LSY's blog and his parents--I need to go back and rewatch. Because LSY was jealous of LYJ and the fact he was so smart, that's why I wonder if it was LSY that had a hand in helping the kidnapper to kidnap his brother. In regards to the kidnapper, you are absolutely right, the father probably didn't have a romantic relationship with this woman, however, we makes me think it's possible is something that I've wondered about since episode 1. It was when KMS and LJY had lunch with with parents. LJY asked his parents if they ever had marriage burnout. The father choked on this drink and looked startled at his wife. His wife laughed (fake laughed) it off with a wink to the father. The father then also gave a fake laugh as he looked at his wife as if they were passing some type of message between them. That scene told me that something happened in their past. To kidnap their son and then commit suicide (that's assuming she really died). It's also interesting that LSY lost his memory after fainting at the dinner table. Which is why it doesn't make sense for the parents to lie about what happened--it appears that LSY doesn't remember anything that happened, so they could have told the truth or just omitted that part. Why make him think he was the one kidnapped? KMS said that LSY seemed as if he was repeating what had been told to him. So many questions I have. Again, Thank you for clearing that information up.
  6. Well, I can't wait for some of the mystery to unfold because my analysis is a little all over the place. I don't know about the relationship of the father and mother in the past, but this woman could have had some connection to the father. Yes the husband is paying attention to his wife, but it could be that the trauma the family went through taught him a lesson. He probably goes along with her out of guilt. Regardless of that mystery for which I am curious, there is a secret that it seems the parents wanted to keep away from the boys--not necessarily for the sake of both kids, just one. I had wondered if the oldest son was the product of another relationship the father had. I question why this woman targeted the youngest son and not the oldest one or both; why did they lie to the newspaper about it being the oldest son? Were they protecting the oldest son or the youngest one or were they protecting some other secret that could probably harm the company? It's common for kidnappers to kidnap the heir to a company, not necessarily the second son. As I said, I have questions. When LYJ and KMS first met, he tried to give her hints as to who he was...little things he would say to her that we saw in flashbacks. It was in a flashback scene at a company dinner that he realized she didn't remember him. We could see his look of disappointment. I got the impression that he was questioning his own memories at times. The oldest brother was also there at the kidnapping site and that's why he's having vivid memories of the scene, but I think his purpose for being there was different. I agree about the spiders. As I mentioned in a post a few pages back, LYJ understanding her fear of spiders stems back to what he told her about the horrible shadows cast by the kidnapper hanging herself---a spider hangin on a web. I don't think LYJ not being completely honest with KMS was to protect her from not remembering the kidnapping, I think it's because so many years of being told to keep it a secret and not talk about it, assuming the identity of someone else is a hard habit to break. He's been waiting for her to remember him. At this point, I think KMS is trying to figure out why the whole family is lying about who was kidnapped. Her heart is breaking for LYJ because she knows he suffered, but at the same time has not been able to freely discuss it. That became clear after speaking to his mother. Any who, I'm looking forward to this week's episode. Not only do I see your point of view and can agree with it, however, I also have these other thoughts and questions that I'm trying to reconcile.
  7. Well blow me down, this drama truly surprised me in that it was very good. I put off watching it because it seemed slow. It was slow (in a good way) AND very romantic. Now I wish I had watched it along with the thread to discuss some of my thoughts. I highly recommend. My only complaint; the kissing scenes (and there are many), it seems like the lead was the only one trying to make them real. Maybe the female lead is in a relationship already. However, that aside, I have fallen in love with this actor. I want to see more of him.
  8. That's why I'm wondering what is up with the Big brother. I wonder if he's a child villain which caused YJ to get kidnapped in the first place. In one of the episodes, we learned that he fainted during dinner and lost his memory. I have to wonder if this was his brother's way of dealing with his actions; mentally telling himself that he was SJ (instead of YJ--his true identity); he was the one kidnapped because of his brother. I have to wonder why the parents went alone with this for 24 years. I don't think there is any reason to carry on this lie for 24 years. It's like they tried to brainwash their own kids to believe a lie instead of he truth.
  9. Okay, watching with subs, I'm finally beginning to understand the trauma behind MS and YJ--this woman hung herself in front of them. So YJ told her it was just a spider. I thought it strange that MS wasn't expressing any trauma the way that YJ was. However, she was experiencing trauma, it was hiding behind her "fear of spiders"; hiding the hanging woman. So now I have to wonder who this woman was that kidnapped them. As children, MS called her aunt, but YJ said she's not her aunt. However, there is some connection to this woman to make the family hide the truth. The brother has supressed his memory too--maybe to cope with his guilt in YJ's and MS' kidnapping. His memories could be due to the fact that he helped this woman--what he accused YJ of doing a few episodes back. I don't know, can't wait to see how this continues to unfold. The drama, BTIMFL had a certain sentimental feel to it, I can see why the writer and director chose to have that couple play the parents and even used their theme music from the drama. It helped us viewers, when watching that scene, capture what the sisters must have felt remembering their parents--it brought back fond memories for me.
  10. I have to say that this episode has me excited for subs for a normal of reasons: 1) I absolutely loved seeing Lee Min Ki and Jung So Min together again--if even for a short time. They have such natural chemistry together. Because of their scene, I wanted to see more of Kim Mi So's parents. 2) It appears that we're learning more about the kidnapping and kidnapper. It seems that LYJ's brother is confused as well. Can't wait to see what the conversations around LYJ's mother is all about. 3) Loved that the OTP is becoming a "couple" in front of others. Can't wait for subs. @aisling, I'm with you. I'm having major withdrawals too. It would be a shame if these two, JSM and LMK, are not in another drama together. @yusefull, no you are not the only one. Just like @dramaninja, I too stilll watch certain episodes.
  11. Sorry if this was already posted. I can't tell you how excited I am about seeing Jung So Min and Lee Min Ki together again. I loved them in BTIMFL. So now we have 3 actors from BTIMFL....not including the director. Jung So Min And Lee Min Ki Are Once Again Couple Goals For “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” Cameo E. Kang July 2, 2018 tvN’s “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim” has revealed what roles Lee Min Ki and Jung So Min will be playing for their joint cameo appearance! See Also: "What's Wrong With Secretary Kim" Reveals Romantic Images Of Park Seo Joon And Park Min Young As previously revealed, the two actors readily agreed to make a special appearance in the popular ongoing drama as they had previously worked with director Park Joon Hwa on “Because This Is My First Life.” They will also be portraying a married couple in “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim.” The two actors will play Kim Mi So (Park Min Young)’s parents when they were younger and will appear in a scene when she is having a flashback. In released stills, Lee Min Ki amusingly strums his guitar while leaning against rocks with a sincere expression on his face like the aspiring rock star he is. Looking lovely in a purple dress, Jung So Min huddles near a young Kim Mi So as they play with the sand together. As if they were a real couple, Lee Min Ki and Jung So Min smile brightly for the camera in another image, making many wonder how Kim Mi So’s family, who only existed in her memories until now, will be portrayed. Lee Min Ki and Jung So Min are said to have had a fun time filming with director Park Joon Hwa, who they have not seen in a while. The producers stated, “We thank Lee Min Ki and Jung So Min for making a cameo appearance despite their busy schedules. Their short but impactful performance as Mi So’s parents when they were younger will be one of the key points that will make ‘What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim’ more fun. We hope many will look forward to it.” “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim” airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 9:30 p.m. KST. Check it out from the very beginning below!
  12. I haven't watched/read the webtoon, so I have no idea where the story is going. Not sure why the family is pretending that LSY is the one that was kidnapped when it was LYJ--from what I can tell so far. I get the impression that LSY is pretending to have no memory of the kidnapping. I have to agree about LSY using writing as an outlet.
  13. Either way....., I hope they stop with that plot line which is then followed by frozen facial expression of shock. Just go ahead and give us a kiss.
  14. Okay, I'm just going to say it---how many trip and fall/land in his arms are we going to have in this drama. That's becoming a little old. I need the writer to do something different. Still love the drama, but getting a little tired of that drama cliche.
  15. I actually think the 'oppa' that MS wants to find is YJ. She wanted the blind date reporter to investigate a kidnapping. Based on YJ's fear of plastic ties and the scars around his ankle, I think he's the one that was kidnapped and the oppa that went missing in 1995.
