What I liked was the background story. As a fan of melodramas and tragic stories with characters that overcome their past and become stronger than ever. And yes, that background story was there, but the current story line was weak. First of all, for a drama called secret boutique, with the main character being a designer, we hardly saw desinger action. No clothes were made, no attelier, just the leading lady dressing smart. Her solving rich peoples' problems was mostly restricted to some people close to her family.
So, the main story was predictable and uninteresting. The main character was way too unemotional. The love triangle was a bit unnecessary too. But, the past story was solid and pretty much original. The performances were good too.
