      O no! :(( :)) We have different taste^^
      1994 was my fav! Then 1988.
      I FF 1997, for me that one was so boring. I do love SIG but I couln’t feel any of the characters except the mutual dad:)

          Glad to hear we share the same taste! For me 94 is way better than 97. I didn’t like the female lead character in 94.
          And oh god! You can’t choose between 88 n 94 either? I’m with you in that dilemma. There are things I adore about 88 but I have to confess I didn’t quite like the ending. 94 may have flaws but at least the girl ended up with who I wanted😂 and I love that the actors were’t different as adults.

    Good for you because you are going to have a wonderful time soon if you start! They are absolutely amazing. I watched them about six months ago and I couldn’t think how my kdrama-watching life was before these three!

        I watched 97 but didn’t enjoy as much as I expected but I’m glad I didn’t give up and watched the next two! 1988 is such a rich drama if you are into vintage vibes☺️

On The Popularity Of The “Dating A Superior At Work” Trope
Perhaps it’s because my latest drama-watching victim partner is an impressionable 13-year-old, but I’ve been thinking a lot about the prevalence of romantic pairings in which one character is a boss and the other is an employee or subordinate. How do I help her understand that while we are expected to swoon over the fictional Ryan Golds, such a relationship would be ill-advised in real life?
Just this year alone we had:
Touch Your Heart
Her Private Life
The Secret Life Of My Secretary
Romance Is A Bonus Book
Hotel Del Luna
Angel’s Last Mission: Love
Catch The Ghost
My Strange Hero (?)
In some instances, such as Encounter/Boyfriend, the central conflict arises from the power imbalance and difference in socioecenomic status between the romantic leads. However, this seems to rarely ever be the case, as dozens upon dozens of secretary dramas have mined their drama and conflict from places other than the nature of the relationship. In Touch Your Heart or The Secret Life, dating your boss is portrayed as a viable romantic option, not as a choice rife with ethical and professional issues.
This year we’ve seen a rise in dramas that reverse the trope by having the female partner as the boss, which usually opens the door to interesting discussions about gender roles and societal expectations.
I have loved many dramas with this romantic set-up and will continue to watch them, but I remain curious as to why this kind of pairing seems to be so popular. Thoughts?

9

    I’ve enjoyed dramas with this setup because they were fluffy and this is entertainment – it doesn’t need to be woke for me to enjoy it! But to tell you the truth, in my opinion this trope is pure patriarchy

    3
    1

      When I was a kid, this trope was all over the TV shows I watched (non Korean). I was surprised to realize that it’s still so common on Kdramas. Basically, these shows tell women that it is aspirational to date your supercute usually chaebol boss (adding an extra layer of classism to patriarchy) instead of telling us that we are able to reach professional sucess if we focus on our careers… Worse still, they tell us that instead of doing real work, it’s ok to have a woman following the whims of a totally unprofessional boss who feels entitled to usurp her time and attention… Ludicrous! This doesn’t mean that I eschew these dramas, but I think we can enjoy something and be critical at the same time

      8
      2

        I’d have thought that narratives like this would be a thing of the past by now, but here we are. And this is not to shame women who want to date someone with a good job, but must it be someone who controls your job as well? This, in addition to the inequality built into the relationship, just seems like a bad financial decision.

        1
        0

        In real life, it’s pretty hard for the average person to have a dashing chaebol boss.
        I think workplace romance would probably work best if there’s a degree of separation, like it’s not your direct superior, or different depts, otherwise the conflict of interest & bias will make it complicated.

        3

    It could be that in these cases attraction is related to the stability a boss gives to an employee. There are a lot of advantages in dating your boss as portrayed in dramas like he’s always there to save the day, charismatic, respected by everyone, financially stable, closed to the object of affection (no need to go to blind dates), can be seen everyday and give work privileges (in dramas at least). He’s husband material and when there’s a weakness to all of his perfection, it makes him more approchable, thus a bond more special than the usual boss-employee relationship.

    Even if I enjoyed dramas you mentionned, I think that it gives the message of getting into a company to find a husband. There are dramas with that kind of women (because only women have these thoughts =.=”) and they’re portrayed as bad. So, only a nice woman who didn’t ask for anything and who just happened to fall for her boss or the boss fell for her, gets a pass. That’s also a point that ticks me. Sometimes, the boss gives special treatment and it makes it for the employee to be recognized for their work. But then, if rumours appear, the boss comes and saves the day. Isn’t it like a never ending circle?

    4
    1

      This makes a lot of sense, especially the part about the boss being attractive because he is respected by everyone (even though he might not necessarily be liked at first). The idea of dating your boss is so unattractive to me that I couldn’t fathom why anyone would do it even in a fictional setting, but I’m considering the reasons you suggested and the puzzle pieces are starting to fit together. It boggled my mind at first.

      I get what you mean about how only nice women who didn’t come to work looking for a husband are given a pass if they find one. Those who expressly want to meet someone at work are labelled as desperate or manipulative. It’s part of a whole thing where women aren’t allowed to be proactive in their love lives the same way men are. I feel a rant incoming so let me stop here. 😂

      The thing is that I wouldn’t mind this set-up as much if the characters acknowledged that their respective positions made their relationship problematic. Some hesitation on the part of the secretary, some reticence from her boss, some discussions on how to handle things and how to make the relationship more equitable, something.

      2
      1

        I agree with you. Dating your boss doesn’t appeal to me neither. Actually, anyone who can use power play on me isn’t a potential romantic partner. He can decide on your work career’s evolution or ending. That’s really icky.

        I feel you. I stopped myself before renting too haha A discussion between the two partners to separate their work from private life is needed. In What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim, I expected Kim Mi So to gain complete independence from her boss and live as Kim Mi So, not only as Secretary Kim like she wanted in the premiere. But, she was already caring for him and did more things than a traditional secretary should do.

        3
        1

          That’s true for me as well. Anyone who has power over what becomes of my career is automatically disqualified as a romantic prospect. Ick.

          WWWSK was ultimately disappointing in that respect – I didn’t watch it but Beanie rants told me everything I needed to know – but thankfully Park Min Young came back with Her Private Life, which had a far healthier relationship.

          Are you currently watching any romcoms?

          0
          2

            I’m watching Love With Flaws, Crash Landing on You and the Jdrama Nee Sensei, Shiranai No?

            The male lead in Love With Flaws is a chaebol and decides to work in the school where the female lead teaches because he wants to get revenge. Things happen and he goes back and forth but the fact that he wanted to use his power in the first place to get revenge because she rejected him when they were kids doen’t make me cheer for him.

            0

            HPL had a healthier relationship than in WWWSK because Ryan Gold was the new boss, Deok Mi was qualified and her work recognized before his arrival, and the two kept butting head in the beginning. Deok Mi was her own person outside of their relationship whereas Mi So in WWWSK was always secretary Kim at and outise work.

    Totally agree with you. It presents an ethical dilemma and is professionally inappropriate. I do think that the female boss discussions about gender roles and societal expectations are needed especially in a patriarchal society like South Korea.

    However, I don’t think Touch Your Heart and RIABB technically fall into that boss/subordinate trope. Yoon Seo wasn’t really Jung Rok’s secretary. Dan Yi and Eun Ho knew each other before she started working for the same company
    and while he was a department head he wasn’t her direct supervisor.

    2
    1

      Same here. I find that I enjoy female-boss dramas because they challenge the status quo in Korean society. I found it especially awesome when My Strange Hero’s Son Soo-jeong rejected the advances of her wealthy, well-connected boss to be with Bok-soo.

      As for RIABB and Touch Your Heart, when I was writing this I was thinking broadly of a situation where two people work at the same place/company and one has a superior position to the other. But I do understand your point.

Quick poll: how many dramas in which the lead dates their boss did you watch in 2019?

2
12

    Technically 3 that were produced in 2019 (Haechi, Melo is my Nature and Her Private Life), but none of these -except Haechi from the second half on- felt like the power dynamic was terrible. Anyway, this year I watched some of those that felt cringier. Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, Clean with Passion and Suspicious Partner, I’m looking at you!

    1
    1

    Hmmm…none. i watched about 10 2019 dramas and none was centered around a boss dating his/her subordinate. Yayyyy 🎉

    Perfume had a somewhat boss-worker relationship, but I consider it a noona romance and they knew each other since they were kids.

    I also watched about 11 older years dramas and I recall none had a lead dating their boss!!! I’m surprised by this finding 😯. I didn’t notice it before 🤣.

        The ghosts who did not know Spanish, etc, I just say maybe they wanted it to be like that, but I since I did not ask them and there is no rule that the titles should be grammatically correct and they maybe they just wanted to create more buzz, I can’t really answer your question.
        I personally do that many times with nouns with gender in my mother tongue, just for fun or shock value even when I am talking and I know its wrong grammatically.

    Depends on who you ask. It’s a weird show – all tropes reserved for romantic heterosexual couples, all roles, dialogues, tasks usually reserved for men, have been given to women. I suspect the all-women in leadership positions sits oddly with a few people. I know the main romance sits oddly with most people. HAHA Including me, re the romance.

    The show is excellent in my opinion. I’m ready to rate it a 9.5/10 or even a 10/10 depending on how the final few episodes go.

      I saw episode 1 and I liked all the women. I think it’s the tone/style that I’m still not quite on board with – lots of lens flares and intense close-ups. Plus, I wish there was a bit more comedy. Scarlet is an instant favourite though.

An Incomplete and Unlikely List of Things I\’d Like To See on TSLOMS:

– After seeing how smart Gal-hee is at the shareholder\’s meeting, Veronica offers her job at CinePark
– Gal-hee and Veronica forming a genuine friendship/allyship based on mutual respect
– Gal-hee no longer being Min-ik\’s secretary = their relationship is no longer problematic
– Min-ik puts 2 and 2 together AT LAST
– The parents plan the wedding but to their shock, it\’s not Veronica, but Gal-hee who walks down the isle
– At least one episode post-wedding. Kdramas tend to act like the wedding is the end goal of a romance. We know this is not true.
– Faux-ronica Park never makes another appearance. Jebal.

11

    last line is my wish to see but not sure how long we will have to bear this fauxronica… cause if MI figures the truth i’d die seeing thier romance cause if an hesitant MI cant set DB on fire than imagine if he actually does things to woo GH whom he loves *now i am in my la la land imagining it*

      I feel like Beanies would implode if Min-ik earnestly started wooing Gal-hee. Just think of all the cute! Sadly, we have to get through a lot of angst first.

    GH used to be VP’s secretary at Cinepark. That’s where she got practice as Fauxronica. (Love that label!!!)

      Instead of a secretary, I’d like her to have a higher-level job. Maybe overseeing scripts? Meeting potential investors? Gal-hee is skilled with people and she knows her way around a room full of stuffy old men. Not to mention it would allow her to live more comfortably, which is something she’s always wanted.

        Soon she should be able to choose whatever she wants to do without having to worry about making money. If this OTP doesn’t work out in the end, I’ll eat my hat.

To kick off Pride month, here\’s a challenge: what was the name of the LGBTQ character in the last Kdrama you watched? 🌈🌈🌈

1
19

    Lee Kyu-hyung’s character in Prison Playbook. His character was my favorite.

    5
    1

    I clicked randomly on a webdrama pilot about two girls confessing to each other but I don’t remember the name. So for Kdramas, I think it was Haerongi in Prison Playbook and in Kmovies it was the main couple in Ordinary People.

    1
    1

    This is a challenge indeed given that there are so few to choose from. I would have to say Chi Soo from Long Time No See. It’s not a mainstream drama but a web drama. He is a surprisingly interesting character with some depth to him. And being superficial for a sec, he is really hot.

    If you want to open it up to Asian dramas, then I’d have to say hands down Hsia Yu Hao from the Taiwanese Drama HIStory2: Boundary Crossing. Both the writers and the actor Fandy Fan made me love this character. I cannot wait for the sequel.

    1

      Does Long Time No See have a happy ending? I’m tired of tragic stories about queer people.

      I think one of the supporting characters in Jugglers was maybe asexual? She didn’t date and was described as “celibate” but since she wasn’t religious, that’s how I interpreted it.

If I’ve learned one thing from watching dramas, it’s that no interest is too niche to have a bespoke stuffed toy (see below for evidence). So then, if you were making a drama starring a female lead who’s an elegant, slightly awkward chaebol by day and a crime-fighting badass by night, what kind of plushie would you give her?

    That’s all because this toy company puts ppl in everything. They just don’t have a sign like subway.

Kdramas are really out here giving us the most bizarre relationships between OTPs. Dating your fake cousin (My Girl) or adoptive uncle (Pinocchio) is pretty strange, but your stepfather who is in fact younger than you (Sweet Stranger And Me) takes the cake. I thought you couldn’t get any weirder, dramas, but you proved me wrong. Bravo.

    I’ll admit, that stepfather bit at the beginning was really weird, but thankfully things cleared up after a while. I might be one of the few beanies who likes that drama.

      I’m enjoying it so far. Granted, he was never functionally her stepfather which I think keeps things from being too icky. Unlike in Pinocchio (which I also enjoyed) where they grew up in the same house and were, for all intents and purposes, related. Ick.

    MAIN CAST
    ML: A warm-hearted detective who owes his success to being quick-witted and good with people. His father was a well-respected detective before he died. Our ML has a chip on his shoulder because he feels he will never measure up to his father’s greatness, so he tends to spin tall tales about how he took down 12 gangsters by himself and rode away on his very real, very existent, motorbike. (In fact he is terrified of them.)

    FL: A genius chaebol (muahaha) who is a little socially awkward and naïve. Her parents only showed her affection when she excelled at something, so she grew into a workaholic and a perfectionist. People often try to use her for her money and influence, and because she can’t always tell when someone is being genuine, she keeps a distance from everyone. (Until one day the woman who delivers the friend chicken she ordered turns out to be so blunt and so hilariously unimpressed with her money and status that she can’t help but ask for her specifically whenever she orders from the restaurant.)

    2nd ML: The ML’s best friend who only became a policeman because he didn’t want to leave his friend’s side. He doesn’t care what other people think of him; the only opinion he values is the ML’s. Secretly, he is talented at cooking and fantasises about opening his own restaurant, but his older sister is a famous chef, and seeing his friend live under his father’s shadow has made him afraid that the same thing might happen to him.

    2nd FL: A woman who once loved exposing the truth as a reporter, but was blacklisted after she did a story that exposed a series of chaebol families who involved in corruption. Now she works various part-time jobs, including doing deliveries for a chicken restaurant, which is how she meets the FL. The two gradually become unlikely friends.

      NOW HIRING CREW:
      – Casting director – please help put some faces to our characters. I like Kwok Dong-yeon for the ML but I’m open to anyone.
      – Writers
      – Noble idiocy prevention team
      – Time jump eliminator
      – Wrist grab remover
      I will pay in emojis and/or friendship.

        May I apply to be a writer? You’ll need someone to prevent my wrist grabs and noble idiocy. Because, from your character bios, I can already see how much the Second ML likes grabbing the ML’s wrist when he starts one of his angsty stories (or runs off after someone reveals that it isn’t true).

        Can friendship be bought? Asking for a friend (aka the female lead)

          Also submitting an application for writing. I’ve a proven talent for wildly outrageous plot lines, liberal use of tropes, and have no qualms selling my soul for a buck inserting ppl to keep the drama profitable.

            Submitting application for casting director and wrist grab removers!
            Secretly plans on doing a sloppy job with removing wrist grabs: How can you make a Korean drama without them? Ce n’est pas possible!!

            Omo. Trust me to forget all about profitability. Good thing you’re here, or we never would have made it to the air.

            Also, the storyline I had in mind involved the FL becoming a secret agent and protecting the hopeless ML, so wildly outrageous is the name of the game.

          😁 I think wrist grabs to save a friend from their own foolishness are probably the only acceptable kind.

          You mean, can the FL pay someone to be her friend? Hopefully by the end of her character growth she’ll realise she doesn’t need to.

        Oh! I would like to submit my application to be on the writing team, please. I can write PPL. There can be numerous shots of ML and 2ML eating at subway, possibly with 2ML grabbing the wrist of the ML as he’s flailing about mid-story and getting chicken teriyaki on hapless passersby.
        And the female lead can stride back and forth in glorious coats inside her perfectly toasty penthouse apartment. She wears the coat to warm her soul. And the 2FL can angrily touch up her fantastic lipstick while glaring angrily in the mirror whenever someone pisses her off.
        And they can all wear those nike self lacing shoes.

          I’m so glad you’re bringing the ppl to this wrist grabbing bromance. What if our running gag is that each time he wrist grabs he is also holding something that ends up flying out of his hand and hitting a passerby. Or he wrist grabs the male lead while eating chicken feet and covers his NICE coat in spice. It’ll be a great way to get sponsors.

          I see the possibility of mishaps galore given the self lacing shoe angle. Finally a new trope can be added!

    Love, February showed me how much you enjoy writing and how good every single one of you is at it, so I thought you might enjoy writing these people to life. As the saying goes, be the kdrama you wish to see in the world.
