Min Hyeok is the rich heir of a big company, but instead of following his father, he would like to marry Ji Hui, the love of his life. Sadly, his father wants him to marry Se Yeon. At the same time, Yu Jeong is happily together with Do Hun for seven years now. When they celebrates the day of their engagement it starts to rain and they meet an accident. When Do Hun goes out to check what the car hit he discovers a girl, bleeding but still breathing. Being scared of loosing his bright future as a prosecutor he lies to Yu Jeong and goes home with her. When the police comes to find her, she tries to save her boyfriend and tells them, that she drove the car. With that statement, she gets all the anger from Min Hyeok, who from now on decides to make her life as hard as possible - and sending her to jail with the highest sentence possible is only the start of that.

First I want to repeat that I am not a very big fan of all the melodramatic series, especially if they are korean since they tend to let all the characters cry enough tears to water all the deserts of this world. But having said that, I really enjoyed this drama! The best part was probably the acting. All the characters did well, even if they had to cry waterfalls. They did it beautifully. Also all the angry and crazy scenes were played beautifully, and let me tell you, there were enough scenes that would've made me crazy if something like that happened to me. And with that, we're at the kind of problematic part of this drama.

The story is good and classic. It's some kind of revenge, but then they fall in love. Been there, done that. But then the main couple isn't the only one involved. At some point, I didn't even know who wanted to take revenge on whom anymore. Because all the characters where somehow involved and it just was a crazy hate-story. That's also what made me doubt that romantic relationship between Min Hyeok and Yu Jeong so much. It came way too fast and out of the blue. I wished they took some time from the overlong beginning and put it at the back of the story. At first I thought I wouldn't like this drama much, judging by the slow start of it. But the previews kept me watching, which is a good thing. The pace picked up and I was happy as it was, only the ending was a bit rushed, together with the romance.

So, all in all, I can really recommend this drama. For people who like melodramatic stuff, this will probably be very exciting and good. If you are expecting a great romance line, don't watch it. It's not worth the romance, but the relationship of all the involved parties. The exciting part isn't the love, it's the hate and the things that change through time. The scary secrets everybody has and that make you see them in a different light, once you know them. I guess that's also why the drama is called "Secret". It's after all the essence of that drama.

3* out of 5* for a great drama, that just happens to be not my style of drama. Still, definitely recommended to fans of those dramas!

best korean drama ever..

5 stars for Hwang Jung Eum's super talented acting. The way how she expressed grief and regret was amazing.
5 stars for pointing the fact that no one is purely evil – excepts psychopaths – in case of Ah Du hon and his mother.. He actually felt sorry for her sometimes, but he got trapped with the opposite reaction during his escape from his actions with regret and resentment.

I loved every sec of it. The drama in it is amazing. The only thing I didn't like was that sometimes the characters seemed to have a change of heart but it was almost all well done that I don't care! I love it!!!

actors are superb as expected! I enjoyed it. Tho at first I felt kinda bored. But I wanted the real bad guy to go to jail that's why I finished this drama. Some parts are typical kdrama scenes. overall, it was worth watching. once you've started it, you won't stop.
