Hmm...love triangle...I dont like it...

Although it  all depends on what it looks like on screen.

I kinda would like for there to be a love line between Sun Woo 

and the baduk girl.

Otherwise, everything in this teaser looks so luxurious.

Kim Sun Ah is such a classy woman. Jang Mi Hee is also very elegant. Both these women on one screen is lovely.

Kim Jae Young fan service around the 2:07 mark onwards 

  Thanks. I will sure enjoy the scene. :P

 

I hope the things won`t end in tragedy and heartbreak. The revenge is such a destructive feeling. I am worry a little about the heroine. Even if she wins, she can lose something more important.

From the preview, I feel sorry for both the male characters ( especially for KJY`s character) but I will root for Jenny the most. I want her to find peace, to be happy in the end, to move on from the past. We`ll see.

Soompi article on what to look out for

https://www.soompi.com/article/1353156wpp/watch-secret-boutique-opens-its-doors-to-desire-in-highlight-clip-describes-dramas-key-points

 

Ahead of the premiere, the drama also shared four important keywords to look forward to in the drama.

1. ‘Ladies Noir’

“Secret Boutique” presents a never-before-seen genre of “Ladies Noir” that focuses on the brutal honesty and truths of women and the men who surround and protect them. With the charismatic female forces of Kim Sun Ah, Jang Mi Hee, Park Hee Bon, and Go Min Si combined with the soft yet powerful men Kim Jae Young and Kim Tae Hoon, “Secret Boutique” presents a refreshing experience with every episode. It is directed by Park Hyung Ki, who is behind popular works such as “My Lovely Girl,” “Scent of a Woman,” and “Dr. Champ” and is written by Heo Sun Hee, who worked on “Life Tracker Lee Jae Goo.”

2. High-Class Fashion

This thriller is set among Korea’s chaebols, featuring those within boutique law firm J Boutique and chaebols Deo Group. As the CEO of J Boutique, Jenny Jang is a VIP wherever she goes, and she will be sure to showcase that in both her outfits and also in her lifestyle. This luxurious drama will also boast aesthetically pleasing top-notch interior designs and lavish props that will have capture the attention of viewers.

3. Realistic Fiction

Although not necessarily based on a true story, the speedy roller coaster ride that “Secret Boutique” will put you on may be so intense you can’t even tell! While the fierce competition put up by both the Deo Group and J Boutique as well as their intense back stories are fictional, each episode will present heart-stopping twists with realistic details. Throughout all 60 minutes, “Secret Boutique” will have viewers on the edge of their seats.

4. Veteran Acting

“Secret Boutique” boasts an impressive cast of veteran actors and is a must-watch for hardcore drama fans. More than anything, the fiery back-and-forth banter between Kim Sun Ah and Jang Mi Hee will prove to be a highlight of the show as their voices and gazes alone will convey all the charisma and information necessary.

A producer from the show shared, “‘Secret Boutique’ showcases a fiery ‘Ladies Noir’ drama where each character intensely goes after their individual desires. Please watch the premiere of ‘Secret Boutique’ that is full of passion from our cast and crew who worked very hard to create a good drama.”

“Secret Boutique” premieres on September 18 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki with English subtitles.

Refreshing: No Ahjussi to play chaebol boss or villain

Refreshing: No female leads with long flowing tresses. Short crop is powwwer

It feels a bit like Jang Hee-bin in modern suits.

 

I wonder if it's equally imposing behind the scenes to have so many alpha-females in the cast.

 

i think i will have a heart attack if i had to wait every week....for my cowardice, i think i will return to the show during thanksgiving :):)

  • Jenny is a powerful character. I think we will get to know more about her past? It’s gonna be quite interesting if we know how she became the J Boutique CEO.
  • Her Boutique member, Sun Woo. He is one handsome man :joy:
  • Right off I hate Ye Nam, her sassy attitude really make me go sour
  • The death(Probably dead judging from the end) of the female cop & the death of the hooker will bite Ye Nam at the end of all it. I can sense it. Especially when Jenny is going to drive to find the truth.
  • Now that the Daughter of the female cop is probably going to join in to find the truth, i think it will be quite awesome to see them work together.
  • Jenny is quite ruthless as well, on which she is willing to use wrong ways to punish people. I think she respect the victims a lot. Like a vigilante.

 

Awesome. 8/10 :p

Kim Sun Ah Discusses Her Transformation For “Secret Boutique” And Hopes For The Drama Industry

Sep 19, 2019
by S. Park

Kim Sun Ah shared her thoughts on her newest SBS drama “Secret Boutique.”

On September 18, a press conference was held for the series with Kim Sun Ah, Park Hee Bon, Go Min Si, Kim Jae Young, Kim Tae Hoon, and producing director (PD) Park Hyung Ki in attendance.

“Secret Boutique” tells the story of a woman named Jenny Jang (Kim Sun Ah) who goes from working at a bathhouse to becoming a powerful lobbyist. This thriller explores her climb to the top and the struggles of strong women as they battle for power, revenge, and survival.

Kim Sun Ah began, “I received the script and enjoyed reading it. It was a new genre, and I liked it. I liked that it was new, and I think it will be a memorable project.” She added that she immediately decided to appear in the drama after hearing that it would be directed by PD Park Hyung Ki, who she previously worked with in the 2011 drama “Scent of a Woman.”

In order to portray the fierce Jenny Jang, the actress transformed her look with a bold haircut and hair color. She explained, “The PD’s biggest request was to completely erase the pre-existing image of Kim Sun Ah. The director said, ‘Let’s cut your hair,’ and after giving it some thought, I cut my hair and bleached it. I think the director’s words turned out to be a great idea.”

@Sushimi  1st eps met my expectations. The pace was pretty fast. Apart from introduction to the characters , we saw the power balance shift from Jenny to Ye Nam with regards to the new city development. But heck Jenny is a survivor and has great foresight - she already laid the groundwork - she's got the Deo Group  heir , Wi Jung Hyuk,  in love with her ...smart woman. While I won't go as far as  viewing her as a vigilante, I do agree that she doesn't like to see those who are weaker being taken advantage of - that was clear when she chose the General's wife as her client over him.

 

However , Jenny's long term goal is to bring down the Wi family - so the thirst for power and revenge never ends well for these melodramas ( ahahah I have watched too many ) - it can be self -destructive . But I think Jenny is well aware and is prepared to pay the price -she has nothing to lose given that she came from nothing. It was clear in her conversation with Sun Woo  that she is not going to stop. Ahhh good looking and delicious Sun Woo ( Kim Jae Young is completely my taste, waiting for his fan service :mrgreen:) - so faithful and loyal to Jenny that I think I will hurt for him - he was so sad when Jenny told him not to wait up for her,  knowing she's out that night romancing WJH and securing her marriage ..sigh...maybe he and Hyun Ji can develop some romance. :lol: I remember the BTS that they will have a lot of scenes together . I am guessing that when Ye Nam's side will realise that Hyun Ji witnessed her mother's death - her life would be under threat and Jenny will get SW to look after her. 

( lol! But sorry I have to comment that HJ must have such amazing eyesight  to be able to see her mum on that boat from so far  :P...ahhh k drama logic for you ) 

 

Anyhow , pretty excited for this show.  It is a tantalizing female centric drama where the women call the shots and the men are eye candy to an extent  ...pretty refreshing in k dramaland

Woah...Jenny looks amazing in this dress...so Jenny gets her way anyhow...

@larus @Ameera Ali pali pali watch the eps..wanna see how you feel.

@triplemI don’t mind watching the downfall of the family. I see them I feel like they are real cunning. Like Mother like Daughter. They are both giving me the same vibe to it. I am waiting for the day Jenny finally Beats them...but how come I feel I need to go through several “Omg that family’s so evil!” Before I get their ultimate defeat? :joy:

Female centric. YAY for that. It is my number one reason to be interested in this drama in the first place but the cast and story made me excited again.

I could not watch the first episode today. I can`t wait to watch tomorrow both episodes.

Sun woo sexy:blush::love:

It's refreshing to see JENNY a woman having the power to be the lead character. Usually the kind of character who is the second lead female the poor girl disamaged  in this drama is usually the lead in other drama, so it's nice to change that way.
I understand that we announced a love triangle with sun ho and JENNY and her husband,  but she is already married! sun woo himself sails between all these gorgeous women, can be a romance with the girl who lost her mother who is  the second lead female:confused: But sun woo is the male lead so jenny and him will be together, anyways  I calm myself it's revenge/action theme here
