Superhero secretaries save their bosses in Jugglers
If you’re looking forward to a lighthearted office drama to kick off the holiday season, you might be in the mood for Jugglers, the upcoming KBS rom-com starring Baek Jin-hee (Missing 9) as a secretary extraordinaire and Daniel Choi (Big Man) as her icy perfectionist boss. I know the premise sounds cliched, but the teasers are anything but.
In the first teaser, when a help alert is sounded, the Jugglers skylight turns on (lol). We’re introduced to our main characters: Daniel Choi, who has the ability to turn people to ice with his chilly demeanor, and Baek Jin-hee, who has the ability to appear at moment’s notice to protect her boss from verbal abuse.
Kang Hye-jung (Lucid Dream) plays a rookie secretary who uses other people’s abilities, and manages to hypnotize Lee Won-geun (Mystery Queen) into submitting to her wishes. But he also has a special power—to annoy anyone and everyone—which he clearly demonstrates on Kim Ki-bang (Entourage). Lee Won-geun plays the gold spoon rebellious and childish boss at the company.
Then Cha Joo-young (Laurel Tree Tailors), who plays the strongest spy secretary, weaves through laser beams and takes pictures secretly. Finally, we have Hong Kyung (While You Were Sleeping), who is actually a former secretary who can immediately pinpoint everything that needs to be done at the company.
While I immensely enjoyed the style of the first teaser, the second provides more contextual information. It begins with Kim Chang-wan (20th Century Boy and Girl), Daniel Choi’s boss, suggesting that he get a secretary for their information network. Despite his protests, Daniel Choi gets secretary Baek Jin-hee, who is super competent at her job, coming to his rescue whenever he needs. However, they have a series of unfortunate outside-the-office encounters, and in the last scene we find that he’s her new tenant. Dun dun dun.
