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

Recommended Posts

I know a lot of people are (I mean all) against his older brother at this point. But tbh I can see where's he coming from. There's obviously a misunderstanding between them where bro thinks YJ did something wrong, and YJ never clarified the situation? Nevertheless he comes back in a happy mood (may be his intentions aren't good) but if we assume that he really came back to reconcile he was treated quite badly lol. They need to be locked in a room lol (like school 2013, someone did mention this above I think)

Also , in the preview both brothers have sleeping issue I mean nightmares, I mean why his brother? Wasn't YJ the only one who got kidnapped?

I just love the chemistry between the main leads!!:heart: It is the most amazing and agonizing drama that i have to wait each week for. I am so curious if PJY parent are siding with the older brother. PJY seems to always tolerant all the problems that other people are giving him.

Well, the misunderstanding is already visible during the dinner. He was happy, when he got his parents' attention and LYJ was quiet. But then the mother mentioned KMS in front of the brother which annoyed LYJ hence the vice-president started talking about his work because he wanted to avoid that subject. Right now, he is really confused about KMS and his feelings for her. By talking about work, he was able to redirect the conversation. However, the father started praising LYJ for his skills. He even declared that he was smart because of him. He had inherited his good genes. This remark made the hyung feel as if he was not good compared to LYJ. In his mind, LYJ had started talking about work in order to draw the parents' attention to himself, in order to make him feel weak and little. But he is wrong... LYJ had another intention in his mind. It had nothing to do with him. The brother only sees himself as the victim, yet I don't doubt that LYJ was bullied in the past.

The hyung has definitely an inferiority complex. His inferiority complex is visible in another occasion: he doesn't want to be recognized as Morpheus because the moment his face appears, he knows, he will be connected to LYJ and he will be compared again.

 

My problem with the brother is that what he said, when they met after 3 years. He claims that he forgives him. His words are showing that LYJ did something wrong to him, in fact the brother is actually expecting LYJ to feel remorseful and ask for forgiveness. Yet, he remains unclear about the wrongdoing. He blames LYJ for everything.

Taehwanie is trying so hard to look like he's older than PSJ. In the scene where the family are eating, he looks like a beaming teenager. But he's good in action scenes and has a believable crying face when he breaks down, which they might utilize if things go the dark route. PSJ is 185 cm tall, and there aren't that many actors that tower him. Taehwanie looks even taller than he is because of his lean figure. But I'm curious whether they specifically looked for someone taller than PSJ. Is height material to the backstory?

 

If it's psycho hyung mode they're after, they could have cast Kang Ki Young for the role instead. His acting is more nuanced and he's scary when he goes psycho mode, like what he did in While You Were Sleeping. But he's also a comedy staple and so casting him as the funny director is not that bad either.

 

Here are the two as high schoolers hahaha

@MrsSoJiSub @USAFarmgirl @bebebisous33... Chingu's loved all your comments and they made so much sense. Can't wait to see who's POV comes true. 

@alekaonu... So good to see you chingu.

I haven't read the webtoon, yet, but I'm starting to dislike the brother. Like it seems like he likes to torture LYJ on purpose. 

@turtle0217... Exatly chingu, that is the vibe I am getting from the punch in the face. He remained cute and sweet in front of his parents but with YJ he was so aggressive and wanted to make YJ look bad in front of his parents.

His words are showing that LYJ did something wrong to him, in fact the brother is actually expecting LYJ to feel remorseful and ask for forgiveness. Yet, he remains unclear about the wrongdoing. He blames LYJ for everything.

Even then I don't see it's his brother's fault (not the bullying part it was his fault). It must be soul killing seeing your parents favor your sibling more. I actually felt bad for him at the dinner table, he came back after 3 freaking years and his parents are just braging about how good YJ is. He doesn't feel this way because he wants to, I m sure even he doesn't want to feel inferior. And to be honest YJ words to him how weak and incompetent he is were not soft either (killing someone's confidence, I don't see how this is ok?). Inferiorty complex is just like depression , it is there and you can't do anything about it even if you know there's is something wrong with you. I personally feel bad for him and despise their parents tbh. Keep comparing your kids and destroy their peace of mind. 

 

As for the apology part I don't see the two of them are at fault. SJ thinks he is right hence he is living a miserable life. while YJ thinks he is right. That's why I said they should be locked in a room lol. Still it's just ep 4, alot of secrets will open up.

I like episode 4 very much. It might not be as thrilling as 3 first episodes but some deep feelings and right realisations are emerging. LSY gives me creeps. He's too smiley, too charming and trying too hard to be around LYJ. And we can clearly see that he is jealous of his younger brother, his position in the company and his skills. I don't understand him but I don't like him. He is trouble and it looks like he wants to have everything that his younger brother has. Those parents have no idea what to do with them so they act like everything is all right. I would really like for it to just be an misunderstading but it doesn't seem that simple.

 

I think I understand LYJ better after this episode. He is actually a normal person (he doesn't understand or knows some things but still) and all that exaggerated behaviour of his is just a way to avoid rejection. Every time he exposes himself to someone and that person doesn't get him right away he comes back to his shell. At least that's what I see. And he was acting like a normal person around his family members. Well as normal as he can in that situation but without that pompousness of his. And he really sees a lot of things around him.  

 

I love that KMS gave LSY made-up phone number. :smirk:I hope that when she finds out about him being the bully she will treat him even worse and not fall under his spell. :angry:

 

And that ending... My god that ending... :love:  That poor Hardworking Cow under them  :D

Oh and those quotes from that book are really beautiful and fit in this episode well.

I feel the same way @averia. LSY is way to smiley and so fake. At the diner LSY never interacted with YJ and didn't seem to care about anything until they mentioned Mi-So and he became  interested in LYJ. He even made an effort to talk to him so he can get more info on Mi-So .

I wondered was it his inferiority complex  that made him want to know about Park Mi-So or was it the way Young Joo changed the subject which peaked LSY's attention. IF everyone was to rewatch it, you will see he didn't much care for MS until YJ changed subject. I maybe wrong. I think they both feel inferior toward each other because one lack social skills and the other is very sociaable. Like LSY was popular and YJ wasn't because he had to skip grades. That is why there is so many misunderstanding and hatred toward each other.

I just love this drama!  PSJ and PMY's very attractive appearance, their clothes, their super chemistry and just their cuteness totally delight me.  I smile just thinking that I have this drama to look forward to and want to re-watch the episode as soon as I finish watching.

 

Her competency  and intelligence as a secretary are far more appealing than some ditzy, cutesy or clumsy secretary to wit the girl who is in training or the wannabe painted red lipped other office worker. His dependency on her strength as his secretary and her absolute smarts and astuteness make for an indispensable right hand person and for a strong female character in a Kdrama. Her truthfulness is surprising and I very much appreciate that his character does not react in having been offended and that her thoughts and ideas are of value to him.

 

These two actors have such appeal and this rom-com really tickles my romantic heart!  :heart:

In ep 4, YJ and MS have and discussed what kind of opening event that suits and will look appealing to public and then MS gets the idea to have book concert event and invite an author to hold fansigning or  stuff like that. ...and guess whom she tries to get in touch? none other than Morpheus aka YJ's brother , Lee Seung Yeon.

She sent an-email already to Morpheus and even identified herself as Kim Mi So , secretary of YJ. That's why i bet SY (next week) will instantly agree to meet her in person and also perhaps would agree to hold a book event in the art centre (to YJ's annoyance)

 

Interesting plot to look forward next week, aside from the webtoon depiction which is very similar and exceeds my expectation :D
