What I think + Spoilers: Introverted Boss is from the same director and writer that gave us Marriage Not Dating. Actually hindi lang pala the director and writer, there’s two more from that show, the main lead Yeon Woo-jin who played Eun Hwan-Gi and Heo Jung-min (Eom Sun-bong), one of the employees of the PR company. Considering that and the teasers, I figured this is going to be another light rom-com with out of the box twists.
The first episode caught me off guard coz it was kind’a dark, I expected it to be light and fun. But it started with Ji Hye jumping off the building. She fell on top of the car parked in street with people bustling around on Christmas eve. I kind off hesitated about the show but I was willing to give it a few more episodes.
So this show follows the story of an extreme introvert CEO of a PR company Eun Hwan Gi (Yeon Woo Jin) and the energetic extrovert Chae Ro Woon (Park Hye Soo). Due to Hwan Gi’s extreme shyness, people misunderstood him and called him “silent monster”. Behind the two lies the mysterious suicide of Ji Hye, Ro Woon’s older sister and secretary of Hwan Gi.
Ro Woon thought that her sister was mistreated by her boss that one day she got fed up and eventually jumped off the office building. Sobrang determined siya to expose Hwan Gi for the monter that she thought he is, so she worked her ass off to become part of Hwan Gi’s PR company, which *clap clap* she eventually did. The first few episodes, I hated her. She’s rude and abrasive! That part where she went inside Hwan Gi’s office and looked around, I was like girl – what is wrong with you? It’s your first day at work and you had to the nerve to poke around the boss’ office! Are you for real?! But later on, her personality grew on me. *Haha!*
