[Drama 2019] The Secret Life of my Secretary / I love you from the beginning, 초면에 사랑합니다

Recommended Posts

To continue my previous post...

 

The reason why Min Ik is also attracted to VP (Gal Hee's VP) is because he did not expect her to be caring -- when he saved him from eating peanuts, when she massaged his hand to ease his indigestion, when she took out her umbrella to cover them, when she waited with him for the security guard. He was touched by her actions. 

 

Later, it will get confusing for him. Gal Hee is as caring and he will realize that he's attracted to 2 different women (of course he has no idea that they are just the same person).

Good explanation by @blademan

 

@Lmangla It's being put in a situation wherein they needed to stick together thus more chances of seeing each other in a different light. Prior to his "blindness", Min Ik refused to trust Gal Hee. When he had no choice because she's the only one who he can recognize, he started caring for her and started to realize that she genuinely cares for him. It's somewhat new to him and he's been craving for that. He did not get it from his family and that's why he agreed to go on a blind date with Veronica Park for that possibility that he might find a family in her family (I think it was episode 3 or 4). For Gal Hee, it's being in Veronica Park shoes towards the end of their 1st date and in their 2nd meet-up. She saw that there's this side of him that is honestly caring. She couldn't see it before because she's too focused on her duties as secretary and being annoyed at him. At first, she went the extra mile so she could keep her job. After the "blindness" incident, she was being like that because he needed her and she needed the job. She thought she only wanted to save him because he's a good person but VP came along and made her think twice - maybe she's falling for him. 

thanks @grake ~ it is an emotional change at both ends and thats why folks are able to spot a difference in the same actions. so for her, before it was basically duty and paycheck. but now, she cares about him as a man, admits that she finds him attractive. she finds the way he has handled his prognosis and how he came to ask for her as cool and admirable. so it was seeing that he is just as vulnerable and her and is trying to achieve his goals -- something shifts in her.

 

and as for him, yes, it is trust but think maybe it is a mind over heart issue. in some sense, he already trusted her because he wasn't worrying whether she will blab to the management about his prognosis when he saw her in the hospital. he doesn't hire her to keep his secret. he already knew that she had some idea of his illness but not perhaps all the details. and he wasn't super embarassed. in a way, it was hard for him to ask for help but he was also not that ill at ease like one would be with someone you don't trust. so it seems like his mind had to say "yea, lets trust her" because his heart already did. and he already cared prior to his accident as he came for that sports day just for her which shocked everyone. however, he still didn't want to extend her contract because of his past experience.

 

so in a sense, for both, they were thinking out of their mind earlier but now they are thinking with both mind and hearts and thats the difference the folks are seeing?

There are 2 scenes in the video below which we haven't seen. 1) 7:20 - it looks like they are in a hospital room and Gal Hee has a broken arm and 2) 8:02 - evening outdoor shoot. In both scenes, Gal Hee was not wearing her red cardigan. -_-

Was it mentioned for sure that at some point Dominique is going to recognize fake Veronica and play along with it? That would lead to assume that he will not be so angry about the deception. But I'm not sure if that was mentioned just as speculation or if it was something stated by production as fact. 

Then I thought if he doesn't realize the fake Veronica, how could it be revealed? Isn't there a still shot of GH dressed like Veronica and the real Veronica wearing the same outfit and standing right next to her? That could be a scene for revelation hmmm.

I wonder if at some point, Gal Hee will ditch the red cardigan and he'll still recognize her, but she won't realize "hey he's seeing me without my cardigan on." Actually, Dominique might not realize he's doing so either. That could be cute.

So many curiosities how this will play out. Yes I'm starting to think about this show a lot. Obsession starting uh ohs....

Hoo~ I've been working on remembering my previous soompi account but to no avail. Hi Guys! I'm so glad to say my kdrama slump had been put on a stop because of this drama. YAY!

 

Well there is nothing special with the plot but I fell in love with the characters and of course the chemistry between our main leads. KYK is simply gorgeous with his smiles. For JKJ, I have seen her in small roles (I'm aware of CHM but has not yet started with it) but she's really a rising actress, I love her detailed acting and her voice is enchanting. 

So yeah that is my short comment about our cute leads.

 

For the show itself, I won't say its predictable nor cliche.I'm actually digging it even when some scenes don't make sense to me because after all the interaction between characters are enjoyable to watch that I can ignore some minor probs.

 

I did my study and I'm not sure if it is already been talked about but I discovered that the writer of this drama was the same writer of the Queen of Ring which is a short drama that I adore. And I just noticed how similar the characters in both dramas and also the plot where ML fell in love with a diff character name but is still actually the FL. 

 

In queen of rings, the revelations was handled well with small angst so I have high hopes that even though there will be lots of heartaches between DMK and JGH, I know for a fact that these two will get through it beautifully. I'm actually dreading to that point where all secrets are out in the open and anticipating the cry fest and good acting from JKJ and KYK- their eyes just speaks so much that I'm willing to get my heart broken when they reach the point of heartaches. But also hoping that they won't lessen the screen time of their time together (like total separation) because I want those two cuties grace into my screen with identical smiles and non stop teasing. 

 

That's all for now guys hehehe. I hope to see you tomorrow for the 7th episode.

I'm actually hoping that it will go to this direction. Min ik will soon realize that it is all Galhee. At first he'll get confuse that he like two person with similar personality then He'll realize that it is the same person but will not tell Galhee and play along with it *smirk*. Then Galhee must come clean and when she did, Min Ik will simply smile and says " Of course I know" then they live happily ever after. *wink wink*

I'm curious to what happened to Galhee, why was she hospitalized? Don't tell me that driver did something bad to her. I'm actually nervous for her because she said she had the files from the USB transferred to her laptop. :tears:

I follow this drama. But I don't get it why most of people is saying Daejoo is bad person. He is trying to kill Do min ikk or he knows that person who is trying to kill Do min ik. But I saw he requested veronika to help his friend which he consider as wife. In epi 2 he gave his favourite toy to Do min ik. I think there is strong cause why Daejoo is behaving like this or someone is blackmailing him something. He has no money no parents that's why when people say you are a minion of Do min ikk. He feels bad for it. So watch this drama and quickly don't reach any conclusion.

I adore this drama so much. The plot is thread bare and full of tropes but I don’t care. The leads are tooooo cute and I adore the real Veronica Park. I am so invested in Gal Her and Min Ki’s happiness both together and apart. Something about the drama is addictive (it’s so an easy watch) and I anticipate each episode.

Dominique is driving back alone, talking to himself, probably worried about GH. Why he leave her? I know she was insistent, but stilll

GH is sitting on the beach, it's real pretty. Her mom's apparition shows up and sits next to her and comforts her. She's telling her mom about Dominique and her fake Veronica. Think she's sad cause she thinking Dominique likes Veronica even though it's herself playing Veronica. Oh Gal Hee what are we gonna do with you. No crying girl.

Starting...

 

Dom drove home by himself, but he is pouting and saying why not go back together, that would be better. GH seated by the beach, talking to her mom. Her mom appeared and talked to her. She apologize for making her mom worry even though she is dead. GH told her mom actually she likes it a lot, and she remembered the times with Dom as VP. She confessed to her mom that it's not JGH though, it's the daughter of Park. Mom told her to go home. GH continue sitting by the beach.

 

At police station, DJ is being questioned by the police, and they're asking about the statement by Sec.Lee. They showed him CCTV with Sec.Lee walking by an alley. DJ started to give his statement, that he got the call, and quickly got a cab. Police is doubting him and DJ suggested to ask the cab driver. Then he left. As he was leaving the station, he got a call, which he didn't want to pick up, looking annoyed.

DJ is meeting at the police station with the detectives. They have some cctv of his secretary in a dark alleyway. Now a flash back of him calling someone (his secretary?) and hearing some strange noise in the background and taking a taxi somewhere. Sorry I really don't know. But the detectives let him go. They don't seem to trust him whatever it is. 

 

GH I guess is staying at some crappy hotel room. Dominique why you not go back for her. She sits down on the floor and pulls out the new contract he gave her. She's tracing her fingers over it and thinking about it. Meanwhile Dominique is pulling up to meet Veronica. Okay maybe that wasn't a crappy hotel room but instead her room and she made it back from the beach. Sorry I am not sure. 

But anyways it's the next morning and she's arriving to work late. Things are awkward between her and Dominique when she walks into the office. 

Looks like he went to meet Veronica...met his mother and her mother first...then went to a bar to meet Veronica but she wasn't there? Not sure. He's telling GH about it. Even though he apparently didn't meet Veronica, GH is still in meltdown stressed out mode over it.

Dominique goes to see his doctor. I think he's all excited about having seen the faces briefly. Yeah he is telling the doctor about it. Wait he's also talking to doctor about seeing GH when he held her face in his hands and was "dreaming". Omo I think the doctor said it's cause you're in love with her. Cause I heard the word for love and he reacted all shockingly. Lol. Yes Dominique you ARe in love just accept it :P

Doctor gives him a bag of things. Looks like a blood pressure or heart rate measurer. I missed what the other things were. He briefly thought about fake Veronica helping him with indigestion.

GH checked into a simple room. She took out the contract and looked at it again, then thought about whether Dom has met VP or not.

Morning time, GH woke up and surprised that no call from Dom. She saw the time and panicked to rush home.

She arrived at the office, sneaking in, while the other three secretaries welcoming her from behind the glass partition without her noticing. They wondered about something. GH went into Dom's office, and Dom was standing right there looking rather upset. Do you have something to say? Yes, I don't even know where to start asking you. Turned out that when he arrived, VP already left, leaving only the mothers. Then he got a call, and went to a club, a lady was there with same clothes as VP, but it turned out to be someone from the hospital with his doctor. GH shocked... why? Dom said some stuff, and then left. GH wondered anxiously whether or not he actually met VP....

 

Dom went to the hospital and into doc's room. He's got something ready for him in a black plastic bag. Dom proudly told the doc that he saw the faces of the people even for a while. Then he told him also about the time when he held GH's face, of course Doc don't really know what he's talking about, but Dom said it's a woman. Doc excitedly told him that it's a woman he loves. Dom quickly dismissed the idea, and claimed it's a dream. He looked into the bag and there are all sorts of things in there except for the medication that he expected. There is a compression stocking. Then Doc also gave him some kind of device to measure his heart beat? And Dom is determined he wants to see the woman again.
