KBS’ Secret closed its curtains on Thursday night.
The drama has received much attention for its fast-paced and tightly-knit story that had viewers at the tip of their toes as the secret eventually became unraveled.

Secret received its highest ratings to date with 18.9 percent, keeping that gap between SBS’ The Heirs, which also recorded its highest with 15.9.

Having received love from halfway around the world, Lee Min Ho decided to reply to that message of love.

We’re extremely thankful for the eye candy in SBS’ The Heirs, but it’s true that we rolled our eyes at the lack of action on Wednesday night.
In the previous episode, The Heirs left us on our toes with a sudden movie theater confession by Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho), which ended up being quickly overlooked by Cha Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye). While, it’s probably something that would happen in real life is a complete stranger sudden confesses his love for you, but the disappointment continued with the lack of any major events with Kim Tan’s big brother and bratty fiancée issues – which we already knew from earlier episodes.
But before we criticize the episode any further, especially on the minimal Kim Woo Bin and Hyung Sik exposure, we’ll have to keep in mind that this is only the third episode
Contrasting from his scene with Park Shin Hye, Lee Min Ho shared an awkward hug with his co-star, Kim Ji Won while filming SBS’ The Heirs.
Recent photos from the drama showed Lee Min Ho and Kim Ji Won, who are arranged for marriage for business purposes, exchanging a cold hug. While Kim Ji Won appeared a bit saddened, Lee Min Ho remained expressionless and didn’t even seem to return the hug.
The scene was filmed on September 24 at a convention center in Los Angeles. As it was the last shoot overseas, the cast and the staff shared bittersweet farewells.
A foreign staff member, who worked with the Korean crew, said, “All the actors and staff seemed like Rambo. It was really touching to see that all the actors were very considerate of each other, changing their schedules and not once postponing filming
