This is about a mysterious man known as the “silent monster” Eun Hwan Ki (Yun Woo Jin), the director of the top public relations agency in the business. No one knows much about him because he always avoids eye contact and appears coldly aloof and arrogant, but in truth he’s an extreme introvert — a PR exec who hates attention and is too shy to be around people. Chae Ro Woon (Park Hye Soo) begins work at Eun Hwan Ki’s company. She is very energetic and receives recognition for her work, but her only interest is in CEO Eun Hwan Ki. She plans to reveal who Eun Hwan Ki really is.

    Seem like a lot of new and young stars appearing in Kdramas lately and I don’t find they are cute or pretty cause they over acted than their actual ages.
    I think Kim Yoo Jung and Park Bo Gum are the most promising young talents in Kdramas now.

    Kim Says:

    @Ling You must have not watched a lot of kdramas for not knowing the main leads.

    Anyway, so excited to watch this drama!!

    Watched the 1st episode and I can feel Marriage not Dating vibe from this drama, coming from the same writer and director. Anyway, hwaiting Introverted Boss!

    I don’t like the first episode. Hopefully it will get better soon.

    Simon K Says:

    The plots are very unrealistic but overall the drama is funny. One thing I don’t like about Korean drama in general is they use suicide too often, almost make it sounds normal that when someone is not happy, jump off the roof. I don’t like that. Another plot I don’t like: walk across street at night, you know a car is coming to run you over!

  16. 16
    Simon K Says:

    One more thing, how on earth is it possible that Ro Woon don’t recognize the CEO when he wear the same hootie, same height and body build and appear inside the same building, she think he is a different person! It took me awhile to understand that she don’t recognize him. And his panic is very very selective. Anyway, a silly drama so just enjoy the ridiculous plots.

    Miza Timpf Says:

    Actress Park Hye Soo is giving a real fine performance. The male leads are not among my favs.

  18. 18
    Swee-ling Says:

    Is it a nice drama to watch? The story and their actings are weird but curious to know.
    The scenes that Ro Won goes inside gents toilet to talk with CEO is kind of revolting scenes. What type of girls go inside gents toilet and talk? Surprising, Korean gents toilets are so pleasant deco with flower plants inside each toilet room. Why I didn’t see any while I travelling in Korea? I knew their disgusting habits, collecting dirty faeces toilet papers in the bins rather than throwing into the toilet bowel. Smelly like hell!

    Fanny Says:

    Wish I don’t make mistake to select this drama to watch for this week? Kinda nonsense plots but quite entertainment.

  20. 20
    Nana Says:

    Why do I feel like Ro Woon’s character is a lil bit similar to Jang Mi from Marriage Not Dating? And I feel like only Han Groo could pull off such character. A lil bit bleh from Park Hye Soo.

    As for Yoon Park, when I first knew he’d be the second lead, I thought he’d be the kind of second lead that people would be rooting for and having second lead syndrome, but nah, his character is exactly the same with the one he played in Please Come Back, Mister. I expected more from him.

    Can’t wait for the next episode XD

    pjs Says:

    honestly, i more enjoy watching Marriage not dating than Introverted Boss. the plot more clear and interesting. i dont like silly panic guy like man in this drama. yun woo jin is look betger if he act cool, arrogant, and brave. not like in this drama.

  23. 23
    Dy.K Says:

    I’m here coz of writer-nim previous work Marriage Without Dating. That drama was daebak! But then with this drama, the first 2 eps come out weak. Don’t get me wronged, i like the cast (well except for the lead actress, can’t helped compare her with Han Gro. That chubby check n full lips, but so far no chemistry with lead actors)
    Maybe the writer try not to stuck in the past but I’m hoping this drama will get better and better. *finger cross writer-nim.

    Jyenie Says:

    The female lead looks like a 12 year-old and I can’t really feel her chemistry with me as a viewer.

  25. 25
    nzul Says:

    Hmmm, where will we start? Hmm, this drama is a bit off, right? A lot of traces of another drama are found, hehe, that’s okay actually, but the female lead character is somewhat annoying and unrealistic for me. I know she has her own reason and history about her deceased sister, but trasspassing another people (and her boss to be) property in the first day of work isn’t considered good, right? Hahaha,
    She could do better of course.

    O.g1 Says:

    I tried to watch the drama because of Yun Woo Jin (liked Marriage, not dating) but I find the lead actress a bit annoying (no offence though🙅🏻). I find it really hard to connect with her… Is it because of her acting or maybe she is not made for the character…🤔🤔🤔 I’m not sure… but because of the lead actress I don’t feel like watching it anymore… left it in middle of ep 3… would have watched it if it was Han Groo… 🙂🙂🙂 loved their chemistry… 😍😍😍

  28. 28
    Dy.K Says:

    After watching eps 3 n 4, let’s just focused on the Introvert Boss, exclude the Extrovert Girls please…we know that the boss need a help but i guess that girl need one too. Maybe the writer think it was a good combo, well just maybe.
    I see the ex-secretary seems a little bit understand toward him. Maybe we can hope something from them, not in a romantic way. Like a dependable secretary coz she knew one of his secret right?

    Wow rating is dropping, wanted to see due to seungyeon, they are rewriting the drama so we shall see how it goes.

    Gegen Says:

    With this kind of storyline, I don’t think this drama should be 20 eps. Just stick with 16 yah, writer-nim?

  31. 31
    Dy.K Says:

    Yeah, i’ve read that they postponed 2 ep for rewriting…really hoping something good for the outcome. Somehow i still (want to) believe that cast n crew will not disappoint me, seing their previous work. Hwaiting!

    introverted boss will be good. hopefully, after several rewrite script. the cast is amazing. I love both of them…. keep fighting! I will always support this drama.

    simon k Says:

    My problem with this drama is the suicide plot, which is not necessary. The older sister made a mistake, did a one night stand and the guy left her. She is disappointed but she should just quit her job and left, there is no reason to die over that. Korean drama and Japanese drama over use suicide plot and make it look like routine business. This is a comedy and it should not have a dark plot like this, which is totally weird.

  35. 35
    Raymond Says:

    Too bad yoon doo joon declined this role. I’ll never watch this drama because i hate yun woo jin since “when man fallin love” days

    #raymonddha

  36. 36
    Hannah Says:

    The reason of Ro Woon’s suicide is not strong enough for her to actually kill herself. It’s kinda ridiculous. And I think the chemistry between Ro Woon’s sister and Hwan Gi is so much better than Ro Woon and Hwan Gi.

  37. 37
    John Says:

    Fucken dumbass drama in 2017!! Absolutely horrible. The girl is annoying as hell !! She looks like a 16 year old. The main guy keeps acting like an idiot. It’s frustrating to watch him in this weird drama.

  38. 38
    Anglefish Says:

    The story Line is suck, how can her sister suicide due to one night stand with the men? ,The writer should learn again to write the story. I can handle myself with the main lead but not for story Line.

    so hard to find interesting drama today. It’s frustrating. stop watching this after 2 eps. cant find reason to watch it more. just stop it. its bad drama i guess

    Dudu Says:

    Yes i agree with other comment above that beginning episode make me bored. But please watch it patiently, after several episode i think its getting interesting, specially 7th and 8th episode. just cant wait next episode!!! Introvert boss fighting!!!

    Sue Says:

    Ep 7 n 8 they shot film at Malaysia. Anyone know where?

  45. 45
    Simon K Says:

    The first two episodes killed this drama series, they should not have that suicide plot to begin with. If you skip the first two episodes (you can also skip episode 3 but I like Gong Seung Yun), start watching from episode 4, this series actually is not bad. It may not suit everyone but I like the tone of light-heart romantic comedy. Park Hye Soo is actually quite cute, give it a chance, just ignore what you watched in episode 1 and 2.

  46. 46
    -Autumn- Says:

    The first few episodes are really horrible to watch. The boss is too shy till I wanna shake him awake. The girl is too loud and exaggerated her expression. The story line is unrealistic. Can see that it is a mess from the beginning. But after they stopped for a week for re-writing, ep 5 onwards, i see the improvement. The boss is stepping out from his shell. The girl not so exaggerating and noisy. The story line is kinda making some sense. Anyway, I will continued watching as I like Woo Jin. I think he is a good actor.

    park jun sung Says:

    I am agree with a whole comment above. Honestly, i almost stop this drama in first 4 eps. Cz i think the story not interesting and the boss act too much. I think one who called introvert is because they are individualize, didnt has many friends, the introvert character that represented in this drama is too much. I m glad they improve the story. The boss character not too much again. And yeah, i think day by day the story become soooo interesting. And i really like soundtrack that sang by sandeul in OST part 3 and Kim EZ in part 5. Beautiful ost. I like it.

    This is the worst drama I’ve ever seen!! U fucked up. To the person who wrote this story and the idiots who backed him/her,ur all fucken screwed ur careers away!!! In the world of entertainment u get one chance and u pissed it away with this rediculous piece of shit. U couldn’t get it right the first time and u rewrote it the second time and still came out as horrible shit!! All of u need to get out of the entertainment business and just go and get a job in a another field and not in entertainment!!

    Love this drama!! They are so cute together. The characters are really Realistic, silent man and lively girl get along well the most.

Anyway, hope the drama gain a lot of successful, whatever anybody say I will always support all of them. Great Drama!!! Love it so much..

    Have not watched this drama yet, but it’s hard to get an idea of the content since the reviews are so mixed………………………………….but I do believe that ” foul mouthed ranting” should not be allowed no matter how good or bad a drama may be. As one reviewer wrote, don t watch.

    silverswan Says:

    To me it is something different. I actually quite enjoy watching this drama and maybe the first few episodes were a bit boring but on the whole was a good drama and all casts were good too. I do not agree when people commented that this drama was not good.
    It is so much better comparing to Night Light which some said it was good. Just the opposite I found Night Light is more boring . Anyway do watch this one if you haven’t watch, it is emotional, compassionate,regrets, love and happiness, which made the drama interesting to watch

  68. 68
    Hannah Says:

    I’ve watched this drama until ep 13. As much as how stupid Ji Hye for committing suicide, I think the blame is to Hwan Gi’s family especially Yi Soo and Hwan Gi. The pressure that they put on Woo Il is just too much. I don’t like how Woo Il is put on the blame for Yi Soo’s death. At least Hwan Gi still has Ro Woon, who does Woo Il have? He couldn’t do what he wants for his life just because of his insecurities that Hwan Gi’s family put on him.

    I’m having second lead syndrome not because I want Woo Il to be with Ro Woon. I don’t root for them at all. I just feel sympathy toward Woo Il’s life.

    Hannah Says:

    I mean Ji Hye’s death.

    Just finished watching this drama. I’m glad it’s happy ending for everyone. I think this drama is ruined by the suicide plot. Other plots seem okay.

    the man who cant be moved. Says:

    i almost stop on this drama when i realize that the there’s a huge chemistry between the older sister and the introverted boss.. but then again i was so bored and nothing to watch.. so i watched it till end.. and was soo happy when i saw the episode 14? or 15?.. yes yes… they should have lots of scenes together.. i know you cant change the lead, but still you manage to make it right.. the truth is, while watching every episode.. i was hoping that there will be scene with the lead actor and the older sister realizing their chemistry together.. im not good with english i hope i explain this right.. 😛

    hey, that's pretty good Says:

    Idk why people are so mad about this show when most of them just stopped watching, this drama is great, although the ending seemed a bit lackluster, although to be honest, it was my fault for expecting a proposal XD. This is a great show though if you give it a chance as it’s plot needs time to develop. The characters were to me very relatable as they gave off similar feelings to people I could relate them to, making it easier to create an attachment to them. One issue I faced however, was the issue of a lack of character development of Woo Il and Yi Soo, they barely progressed by the end of the show, that and the situation with reporter Woo and his vengeance was never solved.

    JC Says:

    Quite a creative direction but not easy to form the script, can image script writer have hard time to continue the script, coz not usual romance story in starting part. Sort of challenging romance with hilarious plots, very funny, and quite like the later part talked more on leadership and work relationship.

    Always like to watch korean drama, coz they dare to try new idea, new plot, sometime we learn things from the drama. Audiences like us should challenge ourselves as well. ^.*
