My Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥/5
Ok, so I'm crazy about Korean dramas! I spend a lot of time watching them and talking about them to my uncaring brother and sister (listen to me!!!). Any one of you who wants to make fun of me for it, beware...I might beat you up (when I say "might" I mean "I will"). I just finished the SBS drama Protect the Boss and let me tell you, it is AMAZING! It's one of the best dramas I've ever seen; it doesn't follow the typical girly-drama story line and it is as much romance as it is comedy.
The basic story line of the heroine falling in love with the rich guy is still there, but the lead character No Eun Sol, is no ordinary girl. She doesn't take crap from anyone and will hand out butt kickings to anyone deserving of it! And the male lead isn't the cold-hearted, cool guy that wins the girl (despite the nice guy watching over her!). It's so refreshing to have such a strong woman protagonist that it makes me so happppppyyyyy!
Basic Synopsis: No Eun Sol is a hard working woman who has tried her best to gain a legitimate job despite her gangster background. She gets a break when she's hired to be the secretary of a difficult and spoiled chaebol son, Cha Ji Heon. While working together, they fall in love and encounter many difficulties and circumstances of social status and business corruption.
