Secret Love Affair portrays an engrossing and complex love story between a 20-something piano protegé and 40-something art foundation director who is married and also his teacher. Upon first glance, it's difficult to understand their love affair with such a huge age and culture gap. The two are from complete different worlds: Oh Hye-Won (Kim Hee-Ae) surrounded by a group of wealthy, upper-class elites while Lee Sun-Jae (Yoo Ah In) works as a delivery man and can barely afford a decent education despite his musical talents.
Yet there's something beautiful and enticing about their chemistry that the viewers can't quite grasp. As the story progresses, they can no longer fight off the attraction and end up falling in love despite the stigma and consequences that come with their relationship.
This masterfully written story depicts the ways in which an illicit affair can become beautiful, as the two characters's connection transcends a mere physical connection to that of a soulful one through their love for classical music. A not-so-classic story about how music connects souls across boundaries.Read More
