Why Secretary Kim


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Lee Young-joon, this narcissistic capable man, was the vice president of Yoo-il Group and was well-known for his good looks.

His life went by without any hurdles, thanks to his personal secretary/assistant, who had always been so heedful with his businesses. She was a beautiful woman with perfect looks and abilities named Kim Mi-so.

She had worked for 9 years as his secretary, although the woman also served as his personal driver from time to time.

Howbeit, Kim Mi-so resigned suddenly. When being asked why, Mi-so said that she wanted to find herself a life-long partner (marriage partner).

Lee Young-joon didn’t accept that reason. He presented a brilliant solution so that the woman didn’t need to resign from her job: he offered himself to be Kim Mi-so’s husband.

But, was it really Mi-so’s true reason for her resign?

Or, was there anything else the woman was hiding? (Cred: Fei斐)

Hi, translator Fei斐 from Pretty777 here!^^

Why Secretary Kim definitely is one of my favorite office romance out there💖 With a pinch of psychological sub-plot, and a splash of childhood story— uuuugh!😍 As how I remembered, there are neither canon fodder nor love triangle throughout the story, just an occasional jelly moments~~ Anyway, it's a good book for a sweet and tearless reading session.. Or maybe not sure about the 'tearless' part there :)

And as you might already notice, this novel was adapted to a 2018 HIT K-Drama, starring Park... more>> Seojun and Park Minyoung, "What's Wrong with Secretary Kim". Like any movie and drama adaptation, you mustn't expect them to be 100% the same, as their drama/movie screenwriter may need to give them some changes to adapt them to the big or small screen, and in this case, you'll get pretty much the same story line but you will (most of time) get a little more glimpse on what you didn't see on the drama version in detail😆😌 A different yet shadowing feeling to read this book after watching the drama, you'll know what I mean if you had watched them before hehehehe^^

In conclusion, I really recommend you this light rom-com office romance book!!!

P.s. My not so spoiler spoiler: there will be 5 "life after marriage" chapters if you're wondering <3

Would be excited to read your comments on my blog, any discussions, thoughts and criticisms on my translations are very welcome! See you around~ <<less

Even though it’s only the first chapter, I know I’m going to love this novel. What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim is one of the only dramas I’ve ever watched and really liked. I am so grateful someone decided to translate the novel.

The translation by pretty777 is also great. Very clear, they also include a lot of context for slang and cultural sayings.

I haven't read the novel but I have read the webtoon and watch the drama. I love the webtoon, but not the drama. And I tend to love the novel more because there would be more details!

You can read it on the official publisher, it's already completed there. Just need to wait for an hour to read a chapter. I usually just open the chapter first each hour and read it later. I hate when I got interrupted while reading, so I prefer to marathon-reading. You could read for FREE... more>> until the 5 last chapter, then you have to unlock them using coins. But it's also easy to earn coins so you really could read it completely free, as I do! I hope Radish publish more korean webnovels in the future! <<less
