Based on a famous webtoon, A Business Proposal is a romantic comedy-drama about an office employee who goes on a date with the company’s CEO in place of her friend while hiding her identity. The show is an office romance that has gotten the audience hooked on its storyline. It all started with two close friends, Shin Ha Ri and Jin Young Seo. Shin ha Ri is a hardworking and diligent person who is broken-hearted that her long-time crush has a girlfriend. While she was telling this to her rich daughter of a chaebol friend Jin Young Seo, her mind lit up with an idea. Jun Young Se had to go on a blind date set up by her father. She told Shin Ha Ri that if she goes in her place and rejects her blind date, then she will give Shin Ha Ri money.
Everything was going well until, on the blind date, Shin Ha Ri realized that Jin Young Seo’s blind date was none other than her company’s CEO Kang Tae Mu. She tried all that she could to make a bad impression on Kang Tae Mu. The fake Jin Young Seo, aka Shin Ha Ri, faked that she had been seeing two to three men at a time and found Kang Tae Mu really ugly. However, luck was not at her side since Kang Tae Mu decided to marry her. He was not at all interested in marriage but wanted his grandfather to stop pestering him about it while he was working.
Park Seon Ho (Wok Of Love, My Strange Hero) are the directors behind the drama. Meanwhile, Han Sul Hee (All My Love) and Hong-Bo Hee (High Kick! The Revenge Of the Short Legged) are the screenwriters.
