Protect the Boss takes its name literally

What weird stills. I guess they’re taking the title literally for SBS’s upcoming Protect the Boss (at least in the fight scenes at the bottom of the page) — and they sure weren’t joking when they described the leading man played by Ji Sung (Royal Family) as a “deficient boss.” In fact, you could sum up the plot of this “lively romantic comedy” as Project: Tame the Bad Chaebol, which is the drama’s description of its story, not mine.

The stills here come from the shoots for the drama’s title sequence, and I’d say they’re pretty good at capturing the antagonism and bickering that characterizes the boss’s relationship with his new secretary (Choi Kang-hee), with whom he’ll fall in love eventually. Meanwhile, his perfect cousin-rival (Jaejoong) provides a sharp counterpoint to the hero’s eccentric personality with his tailored suit and polished appearance.

Honestly, I’m not sure what to make of this drama so far; the stills are wacky and out there, but it’ll all hinge on whether the writer and director will be able to carry off the comic tone effectively. (PD Sohn Jung-hyun did Lovers in Paris and Angel’s Temptation, while Kwon Ki-young wrote Crazy in Love.) Will they give us something strange and bizarre, or will they manage to pull off fresh and screwball? Only time will tell.

Protect the Boss premieres on August 3, following City Hunter.

I'd rather see him act as a second lead for a while before he gets a main lead so he won't get extra pressure and scorn from ppl that he's just getting the main lead because he's JaeJoong. :)

You should see the stills for the promo. He doesn't look too bad.

If you don't think he is handsome that is your opinion but that doesn't excuse you for being rude.

I personally think he is attractive.

for me he look aged - with life experience. before he have that fresh look of a boy but now he seemed a little mellow - especially in his eyes. I just saw him in a concert recently, he is a bit too skinny in real life.

heh, jaejoong wishes he's Cha MuWon. but instead he's a dork, sort-of clumsy, error-prone but passionate and down-to-earth - which makes Jaejoong much better. then again, we'll see how his character pans out.

JJ might not be an excellent actor [altho that really remains to be seen] but he's dedicated. he changed his hair colour and even ditched the circle lens. he did the same to Dokutaa [Sunao] to give the role justice, stripping the celebrity-look. im so proud he's doing the same for this role.

Ji-Sung, I love you but i do not love that 'do'. -_-'

THese stills look fun...I like the manga reading Boss and the secretary who tries to pull him away from it. It's also nice that we'll get some literal 'protection' too. Fight scenes are my cup of tea.

Seung-chul's isn't so curly though on top. I have no clue what they were thinking with that haircut. I guess it is supposed to make Jisung's character look unprofessional and goofy but it's going to turn all his fangirls off! Heh

reply

Required fields are marked *

you're so right, maybe its Seung chul's face that only fits that hair style because everybody else who wears it is just...eh - pass. lol that should be called The Seung Chul hairstyle, like the Justin Bieber hairdo, "I want a Seung Chul hairstyle .. but will it look like i got fried with electricity?

Recently watched Petty Romance, so CKH's hair oddly looks like wig.

I'm surprised they didn't photo-shop out the bags under JJ's eyes. He's a very pretty boy, but those photos don't do him justice.

It is definitely a wig but maybe that is just for the opening or just the first few eps. Her hair is currently short I believe from a recent photo she posted of herself online.

Hmm i might end up watching this drama. Looks like it might be fun to watch. Is it just me, or does Jaejoong look kinda different in these stills? And he looks really tired, to me. :( Hope he's getting enough rest!

I'm still finding this strange that Ji Sung and Jae Joong would be rivals. JJ doesnt look a day over 21 and Ji Sung although he doesnt look his age either, is more mature.

Love Ji Sung's hair though, I will watch only for him.
