Get ready for new revenge(-but-not-really) melo Secret

Well, here’s the first official poster for KBS’s melodrama Secret, and alls I gotta say is, if you paid somebody anything to make it, you got robbed. C’mon, I’m pretty sure I could do that, and I barely know my way around Photoshop.

Secret is the drama starring Ji Sung and Hwang Jung-eum in a plot that resembles a reverse-Nice Guy (…meets, oh, Angel’s Temptation or any other revenge melo where the revenge goes awry? So any other revenge melo). The heroine takes the fall in place of her unworthy boyfriend (Bae Soo-bin) in a manslaughter incident that killed our hero’s beloved. Thus when she gets out of the clink years later (boyfriendless, since the punk left her), the hero hates her, until he starts to fall in love with her. And Lee Da-hee plays Ji Sung’s new fiancée. Ready, get set, angst.

In a few of the stills below, Hwang Jung-eum is pictured working a variety of odd jobs. It wasn’t enough to make her an innocent ex-con, you’re making her a Candy too? Of course you are. Meanwhile, Lee Da-hee—the spoiled rich daughter of a politician—gets to frolic with her dog. Well who said life was fair.

Secret takes up the post-Sword and Flower slot on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Next week will be filled with Chuseok holiday specials, so the premiere airs the following week on September 25.

For some reason, I was expecting a Paris Hilton-lesque chihuahua or toy poodle so I got quite the huge shock, lol.

Hehe, exactly my thought. I like the rotweiler a lot. I hope the character won't be your cookie-cutter rich daughter but rather someone with at least a few individual traits.

We can all hope, but if this follows the usual formula she will be the ever present meanie rich bitch from hell. Or even worse, like the totally immature idiot girl in YTBLSS.

So far, it is starting to look like a pretty bleak season coming up.

Lee Bo Young would be also good in Hwang Jung-eum's role. I like her confrontation with Lee Da Hee.

Oh my impression of HJE was that terrible bowl cut and annoying personality in 'can you hear my heart'.

So really can't take her seriously.

But do love LDH!

Probably the only time I don't mind her odd jobs because she's ex-con, so it's believable.

"..The heroine takes the fall in place of her unworthy boyfriend..."

This is what - the 3rd or 4th rerun of that plot just in the past year or two? Not even started shooting yet and I already feel like I have seen this drama before.

And why, when Candy Girl is working all these odd dirty jobs, are their clothes all brand new and pristine? Pure white gloves while pumping gas - yeah, OK.

Oh well, I hope the dog is a good actor.

Required fields are marked *

I have been using that term for ages, esp in reference to k-dramas. Although indirectly the term comes from the anime/manga, I think the term is a bit broader in meaning in the context of k-dramas. The candy or Candy Girl seems to be ever present in any drama with a chaebol in it.

I guess if you have a chaebol, the girl is either going to be some version of a candy or just as cold and unfeeling as him. Why is it that male leads are able to turn themselves around all the time to become a Better Person while the female version is usually a bitch until the end. Sigh.

Hmm.. That is actually a good question. Seen many dramas where the jerk becomes a non-jerk, but the even slightly bitchy women turn into dedicated 9th degree black belt harpies. Very very few where the girl actually gets to be a better person.

Well, tbh she is an ex-con, what kind of jobs would she'd be doing if she just got out?
Exactly.

Pretty Cast, fan of pretty much all of them but not sure if I want to cry that much, haha.

I wonder if Bae Soo Bin returns as a douchey boyfriend, lol. This time instead of cheating it's sending your girl to jail n your stead. Quite a track record this one is turning out to have, lol.
But I can't help but laugh at his discomfort in the poster up there.

Everyone looks so cute in the last picture!

I think I will watch this for the angst. Angst is fun, lol. At least for me....well...ROMANTIC angst is fun, anyway. Lol, I will watch for the romantic angst!

Damn Korean showbiz is so so small. LDH was Lee Bo Young's rival and will now be the fiancee of Lee Bo Young's fiancee. I think everyone in Korean showbiz can be connected by three degrees max.

I'd say two, tbh. Even I can connect myself to korean celebrities with three. Just imagining all the gossip behind closed doors is enough to make me wince.

And their wedding is so soon! Cutest rl couple ;____;

What is with the loose white sundress over the t-shirt. Is that the approved Candy Girl uniform now?

I hope Lee Da Hee's character here won't be the usual bitchy fiancé we usually get in dramas. I love her in IHYB and I don't want to dislike her here.
Hope she gets to be the lead in a drama soon.

Why is it that k-dramas use the same tropes, same character traits, same faces, and i am STILL watching k-dramas as if it's nothing i've seen before.

I don't really have high hopes for this one. I'll give it a shot, though.
Then again, I also had no real hopes for the Master's sun and that drama turned out to be quite good.
(I don't like melos, though, because more often than not, the situation could be solved and all the drama spared if the characters just grew the fuck up and stopped moping around all the time)

I'm so torn about this one. I like the cast, but if it's going to be like Nice Guy, I'm going to end up hating everyone and wondering why I was watching it in the first place. But then, it might not be that much like Nice Guy. Decisions decisions...

I really don't like Hwang Jung Eum acting... And like javabeans mentioned, we already seen this plot like in two or even three other dramas this year.. K-melodramas seems like how Hollywood keep on rebooting the same story/movie with different actors... I think I will give the 1st ep a try but I don't see anything appealing here...

A drama that looks a tiny bit like Nice Guy? hell noo! I still cant believe I actually watched like 8 eps. of that drama... i wont watch this! not even for my bias Bae soo bin or that pretty cute doggie!

PS: I wish they could give Bae SooBin a role like the one he got in Shining inheritance or his role in the movie 26 Days... he was awesome in the last one btw and him getting jerk roles saddens me lol.

I mean, I have watched several dramas with Bae Soo Bin in it and he's a great actor but somehow just not my cup of tea.

Holy cow wringing tears is an understatement! More like a full on bucket of tears! Hwang Uhm Jung terrific....her crying and tears seem very genuine and heartfelt. The only characters i cant even fathom with are soobin and lee da hee...their characters seriously suck as human beings. But moving on, the plot is of course as heart wrenching as you can imagine but luckily, the ending is....tun dun dun!!!
