The female lead’s BFF in “Business Proposal”, chaebol daughter Jin Young Seo (Seol In Ah) has quickly become the favorite character of many viewers.

After the first two episodes of “Business Proposal”, some viewers have noticed that Jin Young Seo resembles Sonoko, a character from the anime/manga “Detective Conan”. 

Not only do they both look beautiful with the same blunt cut bob, Young Seo and Sonoko also have many things in common in terms of background and personality. They are both daughters of extremely wealthy companies. But they are not arrogant or distant. They are kind, friendly and sociable. They both have best friends who come from ordinary families, Ha Ri and Ran. They both exude the aura of a “rich kid”, but when they’re with their best friends, Young Seo and Sonoko often act cute like children. Notably, these two girls are both interested in boys and get into funny situations because of this.

Some viewers’ comments:

  • Young Seo is the K-drama version of Sonoko
  • I see no difference
  • I wish I had a rich and cool best friend like that 
  • No wonder I found Young Seo familiar 

“Business Proposal” airs every Monday and Tuesday on SBS and Netflix.
