    Well, I have to say that I give Protect the Boss a solid 9. I wanted to give it a 10 because the acting was wonderful and for about 85% of the time, I enjoyed this drama very much. Sad to say, as usual, the extension killed the momentum and slowed things down during the last third of the drama's run.

    I find more fault with the whole "Drama Producing Machine" rather than with the writers, actors or director. I think if this show would have been able to stay on course and end at 16 episodes it would have been beyond great. The extra filler did it no favors. Having said all that...

    This drama had such a different and fresh feel to it! Yes,

    Without posting spoilers it's difficult to explain why I liked this drama so much.
    First, the story was interesting from beginning to end. I didn't feel like there was any lag as it got close to the end.
    Second, I easily related to the male lead because I have some of the same issues he does.
    Third, despite all the ups and downs I enjoyed the family dynamic.
    Fourth, good combination of romance, comedy, and friendship
    Last, excellent chemistry between all the actors.

  • Dokko Jin and Cha Ji Heon are very similar characters and both dramas are very funny.

  • In Protect the Boss, No Eun Seol becomes Cha Ji Heon's secretary. She whips this immature, rich man into shape and falls in love with him. In How to Meet a Perfect Neighbor, Jung Yoon Hee becomes Yoo Joon Suk's secretary. She cracks his cold, businessman shell and falls in love with him.

    Loved it until episode 13, things should have been a little speedy after that, but still liked it a lot! the male lead was freaking HAWT, the chemistry was great between the couples and the kissing scenes were great!

    Something I have always wondered about Dramaland:
    when rich guy takes poor girl home in his car (usually to her house situated in some suburb with small alleys and long stairs) oO
    HOW IN THE NAME OF GOD do they turn their posh cars in these freaking narrow dead end streets? @_@

    Refreshing if you need a breather from depressing dramas. All the characters are all wack, there's literally no one in this drama that I hated and the second leads OTP are so cute! Also JaeJoong is such a cutie !! ^^

    first Cha Moo Won's hairstyle was better.
  • CheerfulSoul Jul 27, 2013
    It took me forever to finish this and it has nothing to do with KH. The drama itself wasn't as bad as I thought but I can rarely enjoy romantic comedies recently so 5/10 is enough from me.

    I am on ep 9 and so far i am loving it! finally a strong girl who can stand up for herself...also doesnt hurt that the 2 male leads are seriously the hottest things alive
  • Brookiebbz Jul 23, 2013
    I think one of the reasons that i really liked protect the boss was that Na Yoon wasn't those females who are like "if i can't have you no one can". Those types of characters realllllly annoy me, so I find it hard to watch the dramas. Na Yoon was really funny instead.
