Secret Garden

(oooohhhh... hotness!!!!!)

At one point, I was so tired of the recent Korean drama series, I could not bring myself to watch any. Then lo and behold, I got wind that Hyun Bin, one of my fave Korean actors is starring in Secret Garden, I was tempted to steal a glance. I never looked back.

Although the storyline is a little cliche... the usual, rich guy falls in love with the penniless girl... But the delivery is less than cliche. Hyun Bin's character insists that his love for his poor, lower class fellow human being is part of noblesse oblige. Talk about denial! To add to the hilarity, a strange sequence of events resulting in them swapping bodies! Gosh it was so much fun to watch them trapped in different bodies! To top it all, the songs of this series are beautiful...

I'm so in love with this drama. Love the sense of humour, special little moments (eg. the walks he takes imagining she is beside him, how the titles of his books form a poem...). This series is really made for die hard romantics! Most importantly, the chemistry between the 2 leads is sizzling hot!

Here's one of my fave MV from Secret Garden.


  1. one of my fave K-drama now! and heart Hyun Bin's character! I love him donning his bling bling tracksuit and how he declares he's love for the girl so openly and thinking that he's one-hell-of-a-catch!

  2. 腐女子 : I love the tracksuit moments too! I love Hyun Bin's acting in this series! So great to find a fellow fan of this series.

  3. Oh I love the tracksuit too!! And I love Oska too!! He's so funny!! Especially when Hyun Bin was acting Gil ra Im chara ^^ They were so funny together lol I'm loving this drama!! I can't wait to watch ep15 \(^v^)/

  4. Yay, it's good to see so many Gardeners around^^ I'm completely obsessed with this drama right now, it made me discover how good and how HOT of an actor Hyun Bin is <3
    The plot isn't particularly original (especially if you've seen the last twist! How to survive a week's wait now!) but the chemistry and the dialogues between Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won just blow you away! Can't believe there are only 4 episodes left :(

  5. Peppermint_fairy: I totally agree. I saw ep 16. Oh dear me! I can't wait for the next episode. Now that we know, Ra Im's father was the man who saved Joo Won's life some years back. I hope it is not some dramatic moment where Ra Im discover that Joo Won has somehow indirectly resulted in her dad's death! Like the dad was trying to save him and in a moment's panic, Joo Won resulted in the dad's death.

    Can't believe the series is ending soon too...

  6. woo ........O.o good¡¡¡¡¡
