Can someone get me a time-traveling walkie-talkie, incense stick, or rock-portal? Because after seeing the adorable promo teasers for tvN’s Introverted Boss, I need it to be January 16 right now. The upcoming drama is an office romance, about the love story between an extremely timid office chief and his new super friendly, extroverted employee. But those are inadequate words for how cute this show looks to be.
Yeon Woo-jin (Divorce Lawyer in Love) plays the titular boss of a successful PR company who is so shy that he hides himself at all possible times, avoiding all eye contact so that his workers hardly even know what he looks like. Park Hye-soo (Age of Youth) stars as his love interest, a very direct and outspoken new hire at the company who initially approaches him with a hidden motive of revenge.
In one of the most recently released teasers, Yeon Woo-jin and Park Hye-soo are inside a darkened car, and he shyly offers to fasten her seatbelt. Just as his arm reaches around her, she suddenly panics, thinking that he might have a wolfish side, and she lowers her seat till she’s practically lying down. At the end, we see Park Hye-soo’s embarrassed and disappointed face, regretting her impulsive retreat, while Yeon Woo-jin drives on, unaware of her inner dilemma.
The second teaser starts off romantically, with Park Hye-soo and Yeon Woo-jin sitting close together on an isolated park bench. She coyly says that it’s cold outside, and smiling, he wraps a scarf around her, moving in for a kiss. But seconds later, it’s revealed that the scene is all in her own fantasy, while in reality he gently herds her into a taxi alone. As the cab drives off, we see Yeon Woo-jin berating himself for his introverted nature, while Park Hye-soo scoffs that he sent her home because she said it was cold out.
Monday-Tuesday workplace rom-com Introverted Boss starts on January 16 on tvN.
