What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim

Korean dramas are the cutest and what’s wrong with secretary Kim is a perfect example of a Korean drama. I loved the first half. The main lead is played to perfection by Park Seo Joon and the side characters are hilarious. The heroine played by Park Min Young is beautiful but her character was at times too formal and less touched by the hero’s overflowing attentions. The 2nd half got cringy sweet and predictable for my liking, but if you want…

But, I don’t like horror movies. My main problem with them is not just that they are scary, but mostly they are plain depressing. I don’t want to be terrified of losing my way returning from a hiking trip because of the psycho with a chain saw.…
