[Drama Review] Kara: Secret Love

Five different love stories told starring the members (ex-member) of idol group KARA. 

In 'Missing You,' Ji Hye (Han Seung Yeon) is a cheerful girl who is straightforward about her feelings. She has a boyfriend named Hyun Woong (Yeon Woo Jin), but he has never said 'I love you' even though they have been dating for over 2 years. Ji Hye decides to break up with him, but the next day she hears that he passed away in a car accident. A year after his death, Ji Hye decides to jump from an apartment rooftop out of guilt. But when she arrives at the 7th floor, she finds herself back to the time when she was 7 years old. When she arrives on the 22nd floor, she was 22 years old, the time when she met Hyun Woong for the first time. With this new found insight, Ji Hye decides to attempt to save Hyun Woong from his destined death, by going back to the past to sort of tell and help him. 

In 'The Thirteenth Bucket List,' a young woman discovers that there is no time better than the present to tell others you love them. Hyun Jung (Goo Hara) is a normal, timid woman who can't confess to her crush of 10 years, but when she discovers that she only has three months left to live she creates a bucket list so that she can live a life without regrets, and becomes a braver, extraordinary woman in the process. Through the process of finishing her bucket lists she meet Joon Moon (Kim Young Kwang) whom help her with her bucket list after finding out that she only have three months left while he was on military leave for his ex-girlfriend wedding. 

In 'Lilac,' So Yeol (Kang Ji Young) is a 17-year old girl with a bright and cheerful personality. One day, So Yeol and her friends are dancing on the stage at her school festival; despite the dizzying, dazzling lights, they continue dancing. Suddenly So Yeol falls onstage and is rushed to the emergency room. As her heartbeat stops, she dreams of walking down a cherry blossom road in an unknown place. While the doctors try to revive her, So Yeol embarks on a fantastical journey to find her true love Hyun Joon (Bae Soo Bin). 

In ' A Seven Day Summer,' two strangers meet on a trip with their own agendas: Mary (Nicole) plans to find the man she can never forget and spend a childhood summer with, and Tae Yang (Lee Kwang Soo) plans to forget the one haunting memory in his past. Will the two find love and peace with their own pasts by helping one another?

In 'Have You Ever Had Coffee with an Angel?' presents a wonderful scenario where Sun Woo (Gyuri) finds herself in between an angel and her first love. Sun Woo will do anything to become the wife of Woo Bin, a college classmate two years her senior. When she chases him all the way to Jeju Island, Sun Woo encounters Angel No. 2013 (Ji Chang Wook), a friendly being who helps her get Woo Bin's attention. Woo Bin slowly starts to fall for Sun Woo, but is it too little too late? Especially when Sun Woo and Angel No. 2013 are getting closer and falling in love too.


I love all five stories and the concepts of mini series like this. I actually want more and to continue the stories of each part. I am going to miss Kara, as a five-member group but this was something that we all can remember together. 

Rate: 10/10
