K-Drama Reaction: Why Secretary Kim | Episode 12

“There’s nothing better than being honest.” ~ Kim Mi-so

FORGIVE AND FORGET

I know it’s already too cliché, but it’s true… only the truth will set us free. Now that the truth about the past has been revealed, the next beautiful development that the drama gave us in this episode is the reconciliation between Lee Young-joon (Park Seo-joon) and Lee Sung-yeon (Lee Tae-hwan), and Young-joon and his parents.

Just like what I’ve said in my past K-Drama Reaction, there are a lot of things I wish the parents did in the past to avoid this mess their family is currently in. But I cannot blame them still for choosing to tolerate their sons’ situation—Sung-yeon developing a twisted memory about the kidnapping incident and Young-joon having a “selective amnesia” and taking all the blame. Why? Because I know and I feel that they only did what they thought the best to protect their children.

Meanwhile, the exchange of apologies between the two brothers is so touching. I thought that they would once again engage in an argument that’s why I was so relieved when Young-joon chose to set aside whatever misunderstandings he has with his brother and apologize. His action only makes me see him as a good person. Meanwhile, I also appreciate Sung-yeon’s apology to his brother. I’d admit that I hate him at first for the way he treated Young-joon as if he’s the victim when the truth is he’s like an accessory to the crime. But then I realized that it wasn’t also his fault. He was too young then, and the guilt that twisted his memory is actually a proof that he also didn’t want anything bad to happen to Young-joon. Thinking of it now, I can say that no one in their family is at fault; they’re all, in fact, just victims of a sad, tragic fate.

Now it seems everything is going right for our main OTP—they finally found each other, their families approve of their relationship, and Young-joon has reconciled with his hyung. I should be happy about this, right? But why do I feel anxious? Maybe because it’s quite too early for the resolution to everything so I feel like something shocking is bound to happen. Plus the jinx about the broken cup and heels is giving me some bad vibes about it. Don’t tell me PD-nim is planning to make the latter part a bit melodramatic? Will one of them be in a road accident and fall into coma? Or will one of them be diagnosed with a terminal disease? Oh no no no. Please don’t!

HOT-BLOODED YOUNG-JOON

Omona, Young-joon has probably suppressed his feelings for Secretary Kim for too long already that’s why he couldn’t conceal it anymore. This whole episode is filled with sexual tension between the two, and I’m always on the edge of my seat waiting on whether they will do it or not. And then finally, the last minutes gave us this!

It’s so romantic and sexy at the same time, but it’s also very frustrating. Imagine we have to wait for a week to know what will happen next. HAH, you’re a master tormentor PD-nim!

Our main OTP also had to go through some fail moments in this episode before they could reach that real deal sexy time. Here they are!
