Review: Secret Love Affair by The Fangirl Verdict
A comprehensive, meticulous and yet captivating in-depth reviews of drama Secret Love Affair that I met so far, from the element of construction, cinematography, music, story, the moral issue, characters and acting, notable scenes, to metaphors and symbolism. We get to see once again that Secret Love Affair is truly a masterpiece and Yoo Ah In is indeed mesmerizing.
Yoo Ah In is simply outstanding as Lee Sun Jae. I honestly think that he was the choice to play Sun Jae; that literally, no one else would’ve done. – The Fangirl Verdict
It’s nothing short of masterful, and it – he – is completely mesmerizing. – The Fangirl Verdict
THE SHORT VERDICT: A drama that is a lot more measured and contemplative than its title – or its poster – might suggest. To my knowledge, a good number of viewers hesitate over this show for one or several of these reasons: it’s about adultery; it probably condones adultery; it’s probably salacious, titillating audiences with an affair between a much older woman and a much younger man.
Secret Love Affair is not at all the cheap watch that some might assume it to be. Thoughtfully written, expertly directed & executed and excellently acted, Secret Love Affair is an absorbing, immersive watch that is at once the story of a man, the journey of a woman, and an uncompromising study of human nature and what it means to really live.
