The SBS monthly drama “Business Proposal” starring Hyo-seop Ahn, Se-Jeong Kim, Kim Min-gyoo, and Seorina has become a hot meal drama recently.
The play is adapted from the popular Korean manga “The Office Blind Date”. It tells the story of Shin Ha-ri (Se-Jeong Kim), who goes on a blind date for a rich family daughter. Long Tae-mu (Hyo-seop Ahn), followed by a series of tense, exciting “dual identity” romantic comedies.
Shin Ha-ri, who is a researcher in the 1st team of steamed food development, although he works for a famous company like GO Food, is a complete poor man.
In order to pay off the loan owed by her family to open a fried chicken shop, she has to accept the proposal of the rich second-generation best friend Jin Young-seo (Seorina). She dresses up as a sexy little wild cat and plans to scare off the blind date, just to make her best friend. Completely withdraw from the family marriage market where the commercial taste is too heavy.
As a result, she used eighteen martial arts to design a whole set of money-worshiping, scantily clad, and crazy for herself. As soon as they met, she would open a room, and she often cheated on three or four people at the same time, all kinds of blind date women that she thought men hated the most.
However, her directness and cheerfulness left a deep impression on Tae-mu that “meeting this woman is not boring at all”.
Tae-mu, who doesn’t like wasting time, only met once and decided to marry her who is under the pseudonym Shin Geum-hui in front of him.
A male protagonist with a different brain circuit than a normal person.
He has been in the Victory Group since he was a child, a rich three-generation chaebol, and an outstanding graduate of Harvard. He never thought that in the eyes of the heroine, he was only a weirdo who “looks like Archaeopteryx” and “is absolutely impossible to marry you”.
Tae-mu finds out by chance that the so-called Shin Geum-hui is not really Jin Young-seo.
And now he is also facing a problem. His grandfather, the chairman of the company, gave him 20 blind dates.
Tae-mu, who is overwhelmed, decides to threaten Shin Geum-hui to sign a “contract love” contract and let her play his girlfriend to meet his grandpa.
Who knows, while acting, Tae-mu is tempted first – “Did I take the fake as the real?”
The classic “The Domineering President Falls in Love with Me” is old-fashioned.
The most interesting point of “Business Proposal” is that the heroine played by Se-Jeong Kim has to switch wildly from time to time between Shin Geum-hui, who is heavily makeup, and Shin Ha-ri, who is a part-time worker.
On the one hand, she wants to ensure that her fake girlfriend will not collapse, and she can only memorize all kinds of background information about Tae-mu to prevent grandpa from taking the test.
On the other hand, she wants to not be recognized by the president, president, and secretary-general in the company, and she often staged a bloody farce with the male protagonist in the company of “she escaped from his pursuit”.
In the company, Shin Ha-ri’s daily routine is still half-covered with a pipa.
In all fairness, Se-Jeong Kim, who debuted as the second place in the talent show “PRODUCE 101” and a member of the former limited group I.O.I, is a more important label in the eyes of the audience, and should be a good female idol.
The two characters in the play, especially Shin Geum-hui, must be exaggerated, funny, and fully understandable. Why is such an unusual girl liked by the male protagonist? It’s actually hard to figure out. , requires a good sense of proportion.
In “Business Proposal”, she has digested the two characters of the heroine very well. She is refreshing, natural, and does not make people feel pretentious. Instead, she is a little cute and can be called a qualified acting bean.
Shin Geum-hui, Shin Ha-ri, the two characters of the heroine.
Especially after finding out that Lee Min-woo (played by Won-Seok Song), a male best friend who had a crush on her for seven years, reunited with her ex-girlfriend, the heroine silently wiped away tears at the idol concert they liked together when they were students, which really impressed the audience. He felt the same pity as the male protagonist beside him.
The male protagonist handed a handkerchief to the crying female protagonist.
And Tae-mu, played by Hyo-seop Ahn, is considered to be the ceiling of the male protagonist of Korean dramas in recent years.
He has all the characteristics of the boss in old-fashioned Korean dramas. He is arrogant, rich, and athletic. He also bears the pain of the early death of his parents, a typical “both parents who have a car and a house died.”
At the same time, Tae-mu also has a traditional Korean drama male duo that makes female audiences especially empathetic.
When the blind date girl he likes likes someone else, he will turn into an “angry bird” who is so jealous that his teeth are itchy.
He will also use his status as the president to let the heroine keep remaking the “primary bird” of food, and occasionally become a “love bird” who is desperate to comfort the heroine and bravely pursue her.
Bullying the girl he likes, he is a “primary bird” who refuses to admit it.
The most important thing is that this boss, who combines the characteristics of the male lead and the second male, is really attentive.
On the (pseudo) one-year anniversary, the female lead’s skirt was accidentally torn, and the male lead stood behind her to make a clearance. The hostess’ shoelaces are loose, and he will tie her carefully.
He would ask her to go to the beach on the grounds of a business trip, quietly prepare a surprise hamburger cart, and remind the hawker not to tell her.
In addition to the main line CP, the secondary line CP of the female protagonist’s best friend x the male protagonist’s secretary also makes the audience enjoy it.
Although he plays the role of a rich second-generation girl in the play, Jin Young-seo is not the usual bad girl duo in Korean dramas.
Her interaction with the male protagonist’s poisonous secretary, Cha Sung-hoon (Kim Min-gyoo), is also very funny.
Although the two are neighbors, Young-seo once had a blind date with the president, and Secretary Cha did not dare to get too close to her, which caused many hilarious troubles for Young-seo who fell in love with him at first sight. Fortunately, the two have already kissed in the sixth episode!
Even if you don’t look at the main line, just watching the two people love and kill each other is a kind of fun.
“Do not cross the line” CP, after all, crossed the line.
The interaction between the four protagonists, in addition to the above-mentioned standard, is worth watching, whether it is the male-male CP line of the boss Gao Leng x the poisonous tongue secretary, or the female-female CP line of the grass-roots heroine x rich girlfriends.
For example, Jin Young-seo will “persecute” Shin Ha-ri to go on a blind date, and another funny role of “she really runs away when something happens, and regrets it after running away”.
On the other hand, the male protagonist who is addicted to work and cannot extricate himself, the only decompression hobby, goes to the second male house to clean up.
The second male struggles whether to rent an apartment for the male lead and clean it exclusively for him.
The relationship between the two is so good that even the grandfather, who urges the marriage in person, will ask soul torture-“Are you two dating?”
A golden supporting role that has to be mentioned in this drama is Kang Da-goo (Deok-hwa Lee), the president of GO Food and Tae-mu’s grandfather.
He also plays the male protagonist’s grandfather. He changed the image of a serious king in “Red Cuff of the Sleeve”. This time, in “Business Proposal”, Deok-hwa Lee plays Kang Da-goo, a man who is keen to give his grandson a blind date. Bureau, I especially like to wear a mask and eat snacks while watching idol dramas, and the cute old man with his own barrage attributes.
The male protagonist’s grandfather, “Walking Barrage”.
The pseudonym Shin Geum-hui, which the heroine took on impulse, is the heroine’s name of the Korean drama “Be Strong Geum Soon” that Grandpa Zheng is chasing.
The hero and heroine of the drama in this play are also the rich and noble son and the daughter of the snack shop owner.
It seems that the grandfather, who has a high family threshold and strict requirements for the basic conditions of his grandson’s daughter-in-law, often comes up with the anti-routine lines of “how can the chaebols be written so badly in the play”.
The ingenious setting of the drama in the main drama makes the character of grandpa very vivid. At the same time, it is also invisibly advancing the development of the plot.
For example, when the “Angry Birds” denied themselves and did not want to admit that they had become “love birds”, the grandfather’s chasing drama barrage lit up: “Look at him, he only likes people and that’s why…” This setting The transitions triggered by certain decisions are both lively and flexible.
Grandpa’s bullet screen, and grandson’s careful thoughts, just matched.
From Archaeopteryx at the beginning, to jealous angry birds, to confident birds that no one can refuse as long as they propose marriage, Tae-mu’s pursuit of his wife is like developing 800 times faster.
Finally, I wish this lovely lovebird an early success!
