Did you notice the similarities between these two K-drama male bosses?
Since its premiere, “Business Proposal” has received much attention and positive reviews. Notably, the male lead Kang Tae Moo (Ahn Hyo Seop) of “Business Proposal” reminds many viewers of Park Seo Joon’s character Lee Young Joon from the famous 2018 drama “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim?”.
Both are talented and powerful
Kang Tae Moo is his company’s newly appointed CEO, while Lee Young Joon is the vice president. Both are successful leaders at a young age. They are cold, serious and cool bosses who only focus on work.
Both are breathtakingly handsome
A striking similarity between Kang Tae Moo and Lee Young Joon is their dashing visuals and outstanding height. They look equally attractive in elegant suits and the comma hairstyle. From the first moment they show up on screen, both Kang Tae Moo and Lee Young Joon exude “young, rich and handsome” vibes that capture the audience’s hearts.
Both are narcissistic
Kang Tae Moo and Lee Young Joon are two perfect guys who have everything from handsome looks to successful careers. So they are proud of that, so they can be arrogant and narcissistic. For the two female leads Shin Ha Ri (Kim Se Jeong) and Kim Mi So (Park Min Young), their self-love is exaggerated.
Both have no interest in women? Not entirely true
Initially, Kang Tae Moo and Lee Young Joon appear as two cold men who show no interest in love and women, even though they are surrounded by many beautiful women. Lee Young Joon ends up finding the love of his life, secretary Kim, while Kang Tae Moo is still at the beginning stage with Ha Ri.
