“The Secret Life of My Secretary” started not too long ago and viewers are getting to know the characters. It tells the romance of a man who doesn’t recognize faces and a woman who is tricking her face. For more information, posters and teasers, you can check our cast and summary here.
Kim YoungKwang (as Do MinIk) and Jin KiJoo (as Jung GalHee) are the leads. But there is a scene-stealer actress among the main actors, it is none other than Kim JaeKyung who acts as Veronica Park, a heiress with a scary unique personality. Viewers love and hate her.
Here are 4 reasons why she is scandalous and yet relatable.
1- Iconic Sentences
If you watch the drama, you will for sure recall her iconic snobby sentences: “Veronica Park speaking” and “Awesome”.
Kim JaeKyung acts perfectly and everything about her is exaggerated. The way she walks, talks, her fashion, the way she ends her calls, etc. Her manners are too much and that is making her look hilarious. She is totally scandalous.
Have a look at her eccentric attitude below.
She is arrogant and self-centered but there are scenes where the viewers could only relate to her. Have you ever been crazy in love with someone? If yes, you would understand her.
The guy she likes does not show much interest to her so she decided to stop messaging him but she has a very hard time to not text him.
In this scene, she was watching a movie at the cinema with the guy she likes [Koo JaSung as Ki DaeJoo]. She started to lean on his shoulders and got rejected with “I’m worried I’d have butterflies in my stomach”. She then put her head at the opposite side and said, “Is it better, Mr. Monk?”. Her reaction is understandable.

4- Unique, Fierce and Crazy
Kim JaeKyung is all about being fierce and crazy. She says what she thinks and acts with no restraint.
Here is the perfect example. This is what happens when she was the judge at a casting.
Kim JaeKyung: Okay, you are bad. Next!
Actress: Is that it?
Kim JaeKyung: Of course. You are not only horrible at acting but also lashed at me. What did you expect?
Actress: You made a personal attack against me first, old lady!
Kim JaeKyung: Old lady?? *Stands up and run to the stage* One can only be either a person or a woman. How dare you discriminate me by calling me an old lady?
The way she jumped over the table and spoke her mind was memorable.
