So the Uncle knew who that driver is?

Probably... he is the brother of his secretary, right? So he might know him.

I somehow feel that the uncle might not be the baddie after all... hmmm...

 

@Lmangla and @thistle  I can understand your frustration with the deception. But just like the title said, it’s The SECRET Life of My Secretary. I am sure that GH impersonating VP will remain a secret for longer than we all wished. That’s the very premise of the story. This is a comedy genre, so I am pretty sure Dom will not suffer emotionally because of the deception, or when he found out. In fact, we’re seeing that the person suffering the most from the deception is none other than GH herself. Also someone mentioned earlier in the thread that all these are necessary for character development of GH, as well as Dom himself. I do hope you can enjoy the show more going forward, knowing that it is a light comedy genre. 

 

@tinymel love your post above :)

Hmmm maybe it's DJ sec, she's suspicious too, she' been working in that compapany since Dom and DJ were little, so she knows what's going on and wonder who is Dom's mom coz if I remember he just mention not his real mom not real parents right? Do you think maybe Dom and DJ were half brothers but Dom doesn't have interaction with Dj's mom when they were little though, lol! What am I saying kekeke :))

@tinymel I enjoyed reading your take and wanted to add, in a farce, often the theatrical device employed is dramatic irony; that is, the audience knows what the main lead/s does not. It’s used to create tension, comedy, and also makes the audience cringe/ get frustrated on the character’s behalf. Which is all of our varying perceptions here and part of a healthy spectrum, haha.

 

I often get frustrated with a character’s development and have to remember as the audience I am privileged to have a larger perspective on the situation than the character does, and it is all part of the experience that the writers and directors toy with, allowing us to be omniscient at times, and restricted at others :)

 

hello hello thread and all who have been following! I’m absurdly enjoying this show despite starting late (only started last week). KYK is comedy gold. And that is perhaps why we feel so hard for him; a lot of the writing has been done to make us empathize with him, unfortunately.

The bio mother left him with the father when he was 7 yo. At that time, the women around Dom were Chairman Shin, DJ’s mother, Sec.Lee... then DJ’s mom passed away, so Sec.Lee been taking care of DJ and became his secretary. I wonder why when she used to be the secretary of Dom’s father, she wasn’t assigned to be Dom’s secretary but DJ’s instead... must be the doings of Chairman Shin. But why...

 

@attriste welcome welcome :) Looking forward to more posts from you.

The various fake stuff besides a fake Veronica Park... :joy:

I appreciate how the Production Team made little effort like these to point back to the theme of real vs. fake.

 

Cardio (Cartio would be better... Cardio made me think of sports instead of bling-bling :P)

I have lots of thoughts, it's just that I don't know how to say them hahaha all I know is I'm really enjying the drama, it makes me laugh annoyed and frustrated at the same time :lol:

 

I lovee the scene with the fish tank, I find the moss balls like a representation of their individual feelings, when the moss ball start to float on Gal hee's side when she's taken aback and same with Dom's, and when the last moss ball float gal hee traces it then joined by Dom then bam they touched each other's hand, so they'll both gonna be there soon, two hearts will be one. Ahhh can't wait!!! 

 

And also I wonder why the the head sec says Gal Hee unlaatched the door, was it correct?

 

So the Uncle knew who that driver is? 

 

And Galhee's sister is not aound when she went to V's office it would be epic if they meet there kekke

 

Don't be serious everyone, just go with the flow and have fun while watching, and its Friday today so new bts coming soon? I hope :)

Refering to the fish tank.. loved your reference to the moss balls and the sequence of floatations. any thoughts on the emphasis of fish type at the vet's.... ie platinum vs gold and the significance of what DOM's father naming convention of "Arom".  I had a peculiar thought run through my mind in relation to Sec Lee's comment abt GH opening the "door" ...

@tinymel ~ so I am wondering whether to write this post as I don't want to spoil it for those who are enjoying the drama. I have been holding off as much as possible on writing about what bothers me about this drama. :sweatingbullets: putting it all in spoilers. 

 

Spoiler

so thanks for explaining the angle where you are coming from. :) so I get what you mean by farce but I am not someone who generally enjoys farce at all. I don't find it funny, just sad and weird.

 

so the scene in the funeral parlor where she is crying buckets is probably meant to be both funny and sad. except I found it distasteful to the dead, the act of mourning and the family that experienced the loss. now because it is a farce and comedy, I get that I am not supposed to take it seriously but my first gut reaction is a shake of the head. but because it is a comedy, I sort of close my eyes and try to ignore such reactions but it lessens my enjoyment of the drama.

 

@ktcjdrama ~ it isn't the deception per se that bothers me because I watch a lot of melos where there's all sorts of deceptions. for me, there is no acceptable motivation for the continued deception when she is well aware of the stakes. is she in physical danger of any kind? is her family being threatened by loan sharks? is she fueled by revenge and loyalty? nothing -- see, the first few weeks were totally fine because it started out as a harmless prank. but when she knows that his heart is getting involved and how he felt about the first secretary deceiving him, then the game should have been up.

 

so I get that this lie will eventually lead to character development but am not seeing character growth. she cries buckets of tears at the funeral and what does she do? goes home, sleeps and then meets veronica park the next day. why not meet min ik and take the time to confess before veronica park removes that opportunity? so her inability to step up and tell the truth makes her character seem weak, lacking honour, respect and unworthy to be with min ik. instead of cheering for her, part of me feels the pairing is not good for either of them and is not healthy in the long run. she goes out of the way to do things for him like a slave but is unable to tell him the truth or how she really feels about anything. so it feels like a relationship that will fail eventually. :ph34r:

 

now, because she hasn't told the truth, we have two business families talking marriage -- so we have money at stake, company management at stake, his business reputation at stake, veronica and dae ju's relationship that just started is already falling apart because dae ju thinks VP kind of dated min ik and min ik loves her, his relationship with his family at stake, his relationship with dae ju is at stake -- so many factors where min ik is vulnerable and in danger of looking like an utter fool -- so thats not protection. so yea, it is a comedy where we are not supposed to take it seriously but I am just not able to enjoy the drama fully because of these mixed feelings.

 

the drama would have been way more interesting and juicy if we had these two in forced proximity after she reveals the truth  but they are forced to work together -- she is awkward, frustrated and guilty whereas he is mad, angry and not trusting and in the midst of this, there's this crazy attraction and want. now that is a drama I would have loved! ^_^

Will the truth come out next week? 

 

Gal Hee lies become bigger and bigger. And it seems like there is no way out of it except to come clean with it. Will Dom knows first? Or will Gal hee confessing in front of him? And worst options,  will DOM knows abt this through third person? Anyway, whatever it is, heartbreaks, betrayals and guilty are the answers for all the options above. For sure, i am looking forward for it. I love angst and i am craving for it. 

 

However, given the tone of the drama, i might not get enough dose of angst. It's okay as i love all the feelings that this drama gives me. I love the butterflies, cuteness, frustrations, desperations, anticipations and annoyance that they gave me. To sum it up, i am enjoying the rides to the fullest. And all i can say, it is a fun ride. For now.

I do appreciate that  you have a different view.  However, the problem I have with this show is that the deception is Not funny.  It's painful.  And that stretches the notion of comedy way too far.

 

As I said, I'm glad that others are enjoying this show but nothing is gonna convince me that the Big Fat Lie is in anything other than agonizing.

Even about the Arowana fish- I wonder if his father treasured it so much even it's a super cheap fish because they wanted to parallel the fact that Dom can also treasure someone a lot despite of their social backgrounds and economic status, and to not treat someone lowly like a minion like Dom did to GH at the start.

Great observation... I agree it could be so... Although I don’t really think the fish is super cheap :sweatingbullets:

OMG! I didn't even realized that the brand name changed. Lol! Now I'm going to start paying attention to brand name shopping bags in other dramas. 

Like I know they cover up car brand, but I never paid attention to their shopping bags. Lol. :lol:
