Park Min-young considers romancing Park Seo-joon in tvN’s Why Secretary Kim
So much pretty. I don’t really fancy the plot of this new drama (it’s so 2001), but man do I love this potential pairing. Park Seo-joon (Fight My Way) has decided to sign on to tvN’s new webtoon adaptation drama Why Secretary Kim (or more literally, Why Is Secretary Kim Acting Like That), and an offer has been made to Park Min-young (Seven Day Queen) to headline as the title character.
The drama is based on a popular webtoon by the same name with 4.5 million views, and it’s an office romantic comedy about a super capable secretary and her chaebol boss. Park Min-young is being courted to play Secretary Kim, an assistant who knows her boss’s every move before he makes it, and is basically the behind-the-scenes fixer who solves everything no matter how big the crisis. She’s a legend among secretaries, and would get blood on her hands if she had to for her job. She’s an absolute perfectionist at work, but the second she clocks out, she turns into a lazy slob who picks things up with her feet at home.
Park Seo-joon will play her boss, a vice president and second-generation chaebol graced with good looks and brains to top it off. His major malfunction is his personality, of course, which is “the prickliest in the entire universe” due to his extreme narcissism. Gee, what a ray of sunshine. The drama will be about their “heart-fluttering, roller coaster romance” as they work together.
It sounds a lot like the recent office drama Jugglers, which I also thought had a very old premise, but it was executed well with cute characters and lots of comedy. Maybe Park Seo-joon’s character will be a mix of prickly Daniel Choi and spoiled chaebol Lee Won-geun, all rolled into one. And even though Baek Jin-hee was a superwoman secretary in Jugglers, I’d like to see Park Min-young’s version be even more badass, because after her strong heroines in Healer and Seven Day Queen, I’m just not going to settle for her taking orders from a jerkface, even if that jerkface is Park Seo-joon.
Why Secretary Kim is scheduled to air on Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning in late May.
