YesAsia Editorial Description

Set in the competitive and corrupt world of arts and music, the acclaimed JTBC drama Secret Love Affair artfully depicts the forbidden love between a couple with a twenty-year age gap. Reuniting with the writer and director of A Wife's Credentials, Kim Hee Ae takes on another challenging role as a married arts foundation executive who develops an intimate relationship with her student played by Yoo Ah In (Sungkyunkwan Scandal). Lauded for its music, acting, cinematography and art direction, Secret Love Affair expresses a burning illicit love through the crescendos of Schubert and Beethoven.

Beautiful and elegant, Oh Hye Won (Kim Hee Ae) holds a director position in an arts foundation and runs in a high-society circle of rich and corrupt arts patrons. Her husband Kang Joon Hyung (Park Hyuk Kwon) is a proud piano teacher who's desperate to find that one student who can bring him prestige. It's Hye Won, however, who's known for her ability to nurture talents, and her newest discovery is Lee Sun Jae (Yoo Ah In), a 20-year-old blue-collar piano prodigy. To develop his talents, Hye Won and Joon Hyung bring Sun Jae into the foundation and provide him lessons and a foot in the door, but Sun Jae will not bend easily to the rules and calculations of their world. Just as Hye Won changes Sun Jae's life with new musical experiences and opportunities, she too finds herself being changed by him.

A Classy Affair
JTBC's 2014 series Secret Love Affair has the narrative trapping of your typical makjang soap opera, what with its story about an older married woman taking up with her younger student amid the shameless feuding and scheming of the rich and corrupt. But instead of being a trashy guilty-pleasure, the drama turned out to be a classy affair with strong direction and script, excellent production values and intense, dignified performances from leads Kim Hee Ae and Yoo Ah In.

Reteaming with A Wife's Credentials director Ahn Pan Suk and writer Jung Sung Joo, who were awarded Best Director and Best Screenwriter at the 50th Baeksang Arts Awards, Kim Hee Ae plays Oh Hye Won, a 40-year-old arts foundation director married to an ineffectual music professor (Park Hyuk Kwon) who is also part of the foundation's upper crust. Her husband, desperate for a protege and the bragging rights that come with it, is the one who first discovers and seeks to develop 20-year-old Lee Sun Jae (Yoo Ah In), a raw piano prodigy from the other side of the tracks. But it's Hye Won who wins the trust and heart of the enamored Sun Jae, who sees through the hypocrisy of Hye Won's empty gilded world and refuses to play along.

With Hye Won and Sun Jae being twenty years apart in age on top of her being married and his mentor, this is not some fairytale "noona" romance so popular in Korean urban romcoms, but a properly scandalous May-December affair filled with stolen kisses and secret rendezvous. The age gap carries through to the casting with Kim Hee Ae, 47 at the time, and 28-year-old Yoo Ah In being two decades apart in real life. The sizzling chemistry between the two leads builds the slow-burning development of their characters' ambiguous love and intense longing, and somehow Hye Won and Sun Jae's illicit affair turns into the most pure and innocent relationship amid the drama's corrupt and self-serving circle of high-society folks.

Besides Kim Hee Ae and Yoo Ah In's outstanding performances, Secret Love Affair leaves a very deep impression with its complete and artful presentation of the drama's world, from the art and music direction to the script and cinematography. Given the backdrop, the soundtrack naturally features classical music, but the production actually integrates the classical performances in a narratively meaningful way, notably in its use of classical piano duets as a stand-in for courtship and climax. Visually, Secret Love Affair has a very distinct aesthetic formed by elegant sets, dim lighting and rich sepia tones - all of which creates the feeling of being classy and cloistered as well as dark and decadent. The cinematography often takes on a voyeuristic feel as the camera peeks from behind objects to observe the conspiratorial interactions of the drama's wealthy troublemongers.
