After watching Faith, I needed something a bit lighter, and since I wanted to watch all dramas with Philip Lee, I decided to watch Secret Garden. It's the story of Kim Joo-Won, CEO of a luxurious department store that belongs to his family, and Gil Ra-Im, a stunt woman, with whom he falls in love after getting to know her by accident. It did sound like the typical "rich guy falls in love with poor girl" story at first, and so I was surprised I liked it a lot more than I would have suspected. It also helped that I really liked the character of Joo-Won's cousin, the famous singer Oska. Somehow this character was so funny, childish and careless and made me laugh a lot. Altogether I laughed a lot during this drama! There's also some body-switching involved and some interesting twists as we find out in the end the connection between the different characters.

After reading your review I think I'll have to give Secret garden a second chance. Then I tried watching it maybe a year a go and found the male main annoying but I never got even to the body-switching point.

I really HATED the male protagonist at first , every time he appeared I felt like slapping him , but in the end he turned out to be rather cute and I ended up liking him after all, though my favorite will always be Oska :-)

Oska was my favourite too. He was so funny and blunt and original. :)

I read that the actor will have a new kdrama soon where he also plays a singer - I think I might want to watch that ;-)

We are watching this now and it surely is funny. :) I really like Gil Ra-Im (she's the type of female character I like) and of course there's Philip Lee <3 <3 <3
