The series revolves around the narcissistic Lee Young Joon (Park Seo-Joon), the vice president of a company run by his family. He is very self-absorbed and thinks highly of himself, so much that he barely acknowledges the people around him. Lee Young Joon has a capable and patient secretary in Kim Mi So who has remained by his side and worked diligently for 9 years without any romantic involvement. However, Mi So now want to set her life & focus on herself so when she decides to resign from her job, hilarious misunderstandings ensue. After 9 years of their strictly-workplace relationship, can it now develop in something more?
This drama is highly enjoyable despite the overused story of Kdrama about chaebol falling in love with someone who is not rich. Well, the difference is there are no snobbish and irritating rich parents, no villains to give you a heart attack, instead, its a solid drama on its own with humor and story to follow.
I like the chemistry of the two leads, they look good together and both maintain with certain charm throughout the show. It’s fun to watch Park Seo-Joon as a narcissistic character but who is naive about dating and love. I couldn’t imagine anyone else but him for this drama. Park Min-Young is quite impressive too, she just nailed her character as a secretary who is ideal and professional but struggling to enjoy her own personal life.
I recognize also the other side characters who liven up the atmosphere. Some of them are quirky, weird and yet it serves good support to the show to be a comedy relief.
Story-wise, I disagree with what other people said that it was dragging. I find the pacing fast and a balance from lighter to dark without overshadowing the funny sides until they wrap up it nicely.
Yes, it was predictable after the first few episodes and regardless of the plot that wasn’t grand enough to ponder, I still enjoy this one. I never got bored of this show, definitely worth fun to watch.
