[Drama 2018] What is Wrong with Secretary Kim, 김비서가 왜 그럴까

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! Decided to check out this drama because of Park Min Young. :)

 

As far as I have understood the show is based off of a webtoon. I have never read it, so I have no idea what's going to happen... Of course, it does seem like our two leads are connected somehow from childhood already.

 

I like the fun airy mood of the show, and have found myself laughing over the characters' silly antics. So I will definitely keep on watching it. :)

 

One thing that intrigues me is to see how they develop the main lead's narcissism. He seems to be suffering from narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), which is something you cannot be "cured" from. I hope that the drama doesn't over-glorify narcissism,  or have him miraculously overnight become empathetic and truly loving to Secretary Kim. It just wouldn't make sense.

 

Being in a relationship with a narcissist or having a boss/parent who is a narcissist, can be highly damaging to the victim. Different types of narcissists behave in different ways, but the other person in the relationship (child, husband/wife, subordinate, etc) will always be victimized in one way or the other by the narcissist.

One of my friends has written a book about narcissism, and one interesting thing she told me, is that almost always the victim who is in a love relationship with a narcissist, is a narcissist himself/herself too... Usually of another type or of a lesser degree. The victim will do everything in his/her power to keep the narcissist happy. BUT the victim will exhibit the same narcissistic tendencies to someone she/he perceives weaker than her/him (e.g. a pet, child, friend). Narcissists tend to attract each other... The most common advice would be to stay as far away from narcissists as possible, if you have a choice, that is.

 

Narcissism is a subject that is complex and serious. Now, as this is a drama, I don't have high hopes that they will depict this subject in a realistic manner. "I Remember You" (depicting psychopaths) and "Kill Me, Heal Me" (depicting dissociative identity disorder aka multiple personality disorder) did a good job of keeping realism in the loop. So, let's see how the story progresses. :)

So all I did for this drama from last week airing is like let's save the best for the last. I only hear good praises from some friends on how good this drama kicked off its early episodes. And now I proved it is. I've just done with ep 1 still. And I felt it quite flat at the beginning of episode 1. But I really enjoy with how narcissistic LYJ mistakenly KMS's allergic reaction as liking him. Ohh.. oppa.. you did a great job in portraying this narcissist character in that confidence and yet so funny. I feel bad for MS but can't help to gigle over LYJ. I can't stop smiling to see how cute he is when he is having hard time to sleep because of too much thoughts on reason why she suddenly quit. I do feel so curious why, it's clearly the answer won't come on to revelation too soon or it did. 

 

 

And I just love how the first episode ended with that surprisingly peculiar proposal?? 

"So you want to quit the job to get married?"

"Yes" 

"Then keep your job, I, Lee young Joon, will marry you"

 

Me: Surprised as kMS. Uwaaaaa... squeeeeeeee :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

 

To be continue to ep 2 soon!

I love this drama. I love it. I love it. I loooooove it. The chemistry is cracking. The dialogue is witty and fast  (I adore the banter between Kim Mi So/Secretary Kim and our CEO/Joon. I melted at their text messaging -I love that they can be so honest with one another. I male lead who accepts the female's honesty. I was happily surprised- and loved the whole "you keep talking back to me." "no I'm just answering your questions" bit), and the direction ix smooth yet funny and fast paced (scenes just fly by one after the other, and i love the cartoons thrown in here and there). Park Min Young looks gorgeous in this drama. As a need to be dressed business/business casual worker myself, her looks are slaying and inspiring me. Who knew a simple pencil skirt and flowy tops can look so good. 

 

Our CEO is sooooo in love with Kim Mi So (though he doesn't seem to fully realize it yet) and I think she feels the same way and I can't wait for them both to truly realize that and stumble to be together. The tie tying scene was everything :wub::wub::wub: I adore how much of a fond memory it seems to be for him and how much every moment spent with her has been something he holds dear and close/has more meaning and implications for him. I'm a sucker for male (or second male leads) who fall fist so I'm all in with these two. I'm curious if CEO and Kim were kidnapped when younger and spent time living together as "brother" and "sister".  The horrible dreams CEO has, Kims fear of spiders and asking if she was taken as a child, also the childhood book and her looking for her brother; kdrama love them "fated/destined" since tots trope so I expect that Kim, CEO, and the older brother we've yet to meet were all kidnapped and spent time together when younger. 

 

This drama has me hooked and it's only been two eps. Please remain this good throughout your run drama.

I love her pony tail...swish ..swish as she walks. She's gorgeous. She looks really good in her outfits and she's whip-smart. He is so cute with his arrogance and everything he is doing to try and date her is making me squeal in delight

 

I love the whiplash dialogue I am loving this drama.

Yeah her pony-tailed hair is giving me an Ariana Grande vibes. ^_^

PMY is soo gorgeous I sometimes missed reading the subs because I'm stuck looking at her. 

 

The new stills give more hints on their past esp. LYJ.  Excited to watch episode 3. Wednesday pali pali.

Me too, I have had to put 3 really good ones on hold and I keep adding more. At least one is going to end next week:tongue: I really should have not even looked at this one, but I couldn't help myself. I'm loving PSJ on this role, always love PMY. I don't always like her dramas but I've had a soft spot in my heart for her since I watched her in The Unstoppable High Kick.  Now I'm hooked on this drama...

I was pleasantly surprised at how the story went. They set the premise up rather well in the first two episodes. Some dramas take awhile to find its footing . Hope they’ll mAintain

Ok, tried this one out.  I love both leads. They are beautiful and talented. The story is dragging for me from the outset. As I write this I have finished ep. 1  and having a difficult time getting through episode 2.   There was a hint of past trauma during the little Ms Muffet scene, when she sees the spider and asks about something happening when she was a little girl. I liked her sisters. I am wondering who the oppa is she is writing to.   But that is the most intriguing part, and very little of it yet.  The other supporters are well acted to be sure, but their roles are sort of cliche and not really interesting to me.  So just dunno if I will continue. As I say struggling through episode 2, will finish it up and then see whether I will go on.

Honestly, I feel like a lot has happened in 9 nine years and now that they have become successful together, they forgot all the things they've been through. With KMS leaving, it'll bring them to going back to old memories and seeing all the ups and downs they've been through together.

I do feel the same that they have feelings for one another, but don't realize it, yet. I honestly think that LYJ's feelings really shows, but he won't admit it. KMS doesn't realize her feelings, yet for LYJ. Just my guess. :D

Been a long time since my last drama.   But I loved the trailers, I like PSJ,  specially in romcoms, and I liked the sassiness of Kim Mi So.    The chemistry PSJ and PMY make palpable  for this series is great,  both being very capable lead actors.   Thus here I am.    

 

The first two eps are pretty fast paced.   And we get two shower scenes in two eps as bonus, lol.    The flashback of her early days on the job is really nice.    But it is the  backstory of what makes  LYJ wake up in cold sweat,  KMS’s fear of spiders, and the mystery of who Oppa is,   is what I am waiting for.  Should be interesting.   Am staying with this series till it ends.  

 

Waving hello  to the chinggus in this forum who I have met in other dramas. Long time no see!

Done with ep 2. It's very nice and lovely good as expected. Now I have something more to look forward on wed-thu. 

 

LYJ is clearly falling head over heel with KMS. It is so fun seeing him trying to date her. And KMS, I believe deep down in her heart, there's a special place for him. Both are liking each other. All the wrong conclusions he had would let him to see a great humiliation of the truth later. Lol

 

I like the flashback of the two, it's great to see how times change rookie Sec Kim to her as today. And how the two are working together from the beginning. 

 

Is the second male lead will be LYJ secret brother?? What's with him? Is he his brother like half-brother?

Article'Secretary Kim' Park Min Young is straight out of the webtoon... another 'romcom' legend?

Source: OSE Nvia Naver

1. [+1,039, -95] How is she so pretty~~

2. [+562, -28] Ah seriously ㅋㅋ not only are the characters so in sync but I really like how the first episode is the same as the original webtoon

3. [+296, -25] She's a great actor, especially when she was acting out the allergies... her face got all red and tears welled up in her eyes~ ㅋ it's a fun drama so far

4. [+314, -54] We all know that she got plastic surgery, can we please stop mentioning it? Her acting is great but I feel like people overlook it because of her plastic surgery and it's sad.

5. [+126, -20] She matches the character great... she's 'Miso' completely!!

6. [+56, -4] I started watching for Park Seo Joon but all I can notice now is Park Min Young because she's so pretty ㅋㅋ

7. [+45, -3] She has great pronunciation and tonality, her acting is really good. She seems to have researched a lot into her role.

8. [+37, -1] Hasn't she always been good at acting?

1. [+404, -18] Park Seo Joon is so charming. He seems like a psycho but a cool one, and he's cute too~ ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+332, -21] Park Seo Joon and Park Min Young match so well

3. [+305, -17] The casting is already good~ ^^

4. [+30, -3] Both leads are great at acting. Sometimes the hardest style of acting is just the normal life of an average character but they're showing great chemistry.

5. [+26, -7] The drama's fun because both leads are so good! I hope this carries through until the end!

6. [+23, -2] After seeing this episode, I've realized only one thing and it's that acting should be left to the pros like them, not idols.

7. [+22, -8] Both of them are so crazy good looking... they're straight out of the webtoon

8. [+16, -3] She's so good at acting... she always has great chemistry with her male co-stars
