By  | 

The focus on heroine’s emotions and thoughts weaves the preparations for the eventual tackling of the main issues raised in What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim.

The new love birds find ways to separate love from work, leading them to awkward scenarios in the fifth week of What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim. 

The mirth and heart flutters seem never-ending and just keeps on getting better for tvN’s top-rating romantic comedy.

Linking the conflict raised involving the past of the lead trio still lacks a convincing punch.

Nevertheless, the palpable sweet on-screen chemistry of Park Seo Joon and Park Min Young keeps the story’s addictive magic.

The eventful kiss affirmed the new relationship between Mi So and Young Joon who offered marriage again after enumerating his ever-perfect portfolio.

But his lady politely declines, citing they started dating only 30 minutes ago.

Just like any new couple, they find it hard to part with each other, so he goes back to tell Mi So that he went back so that she won’t miss him through the night.

With all the good things happening for Young Joon, he sleeps soundly and even extends it at work, making a strange view for his friend and Mi So.

Just as she tiptoes to leave her man, he takes her hand and encloses her in his arms. She mumbles how the office people might see them, so he responds how she should have prepared well when she woke up his slumbering desires. Rawr for that. *grin

4. “We might get into fight. We just reconciled.”

Young Joon surprisingly visits Mi So with her favorite dishes from a local food hub they visited before, but her sisters arrive with the same food.

Mi So hides her boyfriend inside her closet while her sisters burst out all the “bad boss” stories Mi So shared with them before.

The latter forces her sister to leave her place and appeases her man who has been pouting on how Mi So only shared the bad things, disregarding his good points.

He sighs and takes her to sit on his lap, not wanting to go for another round of misunderstanding when they just made up.

He tells her how he can’t afford to get angry when she is so pretty and scores a sweet closet kiss with her.

8. “Mi So, wake up!”

The last three episodes of Young Joon and Mi So’s story would answer the questions raised about the hero’s tampered memory.

Hopefully, we get the answers quick because we want to hear more of Young Joon’s adorable hubris.

The candied moments before the storm enables the viewers to forego the shallow plot conflict linking the estranged brothers and the heroine.

Though it fits to sustain the flow of the narrative, the problem raised is not that convincing. Nonetheless, the sparky romance overshadow the visible lapses and fillers of the series.
