well... it took me a while to finish this one. I liked some aspects of it, like what was and became important in life to the characters and the music was really touching. Kim Hye Eun played her role very well, bc omg it was SO hard for me to stand her character!
Although the end was interesting, I had pictured a different one (perhaps too predictable?):
I imagined Seon Jae was going to study abroad and Hye Won was going to take over the company, make Professor Cho the dean at the university, divorce her husband and live happily free and alone for some years, until Seon Jae came back from abroad and they reunited.
I guess that would be a happier ending to me.
I'm glad I finally finished this drama, but I wouldn't watch it again.

Well, first I have to say that this is one of the best drama that I seen in my entire life.
The OST is amazing, the acting is amazing, the storyline is amazing... I love every piece of this.
This drama isn't for everyone. The way they portrait the emotional through the music and the cinematrographia is just brillant.
I love the ending too, and all the messages that this drama brings, about love, happiness, work, money, etc.
I HIGHLY recommend this. Is sure a masterpiece and I am very glad that i watched it!

This drama definitely isn't my cup of tea but I still got swept away by the romance. The acting is literally out of this world good. I think one of the main reason I didn't like it is that I didn't understood much of it. The corruptions and machinations bored me to death because I didn't understood half that was going on.

I love the ending though.
She seems so happy at the end, so at peace that it's literally spilling over the screen. I particularly loved the few last seconds with the shot of wild flowers. It was so bright and sunny and it was a stark contrast to the rest of the drama who was all dark and gloomy.

One of the best dramas I've seen. To be honest I dislike Yu A In's acting but in this drama he was great. Kim Hui Ae did wonderful job. I hope that screenwriter got an award for this masterpiece. It's not for everyone but fans over 20 y.o. should appreciate it.

I was worried because I saw so many people disliked the ending. But I found it so fitting. So beautiful. This drama certainly isn't for everyone - many might find it slow, boring maybe. But I found it to be very meaningful and well done. Yu Ah In and Kim Hui Ae do a FANTASTIC job. So do the rest of the cast. There isn't much dialogue in this drama yet you can still know what they're feeling and what their thinking from their expressions alone. Really. I was very much impressed.

If you don't like slower dramas, this may not be for you. If you enjoy these sorts of works, then check it out because this series is great 5/5

My only complaint is that whoever named the series "Secret" Love Affair really needs to reconsider the secret part. Even before the affair actually began people were suspicious. Seriously
