Introverted Boss: Review


Introverted Boss follows the story of Chae Ro Woon (Park Hye Soo), an outgoing and energetic extrovert. But behind her happy-go-lucky personality is a serious mission to reveal the truth behind how her sister Ji Hye ended up committing suicide at work.

She finds her way into working for the very same boss her sister had — a PR agency executive named Eun Hwan Ki (Yeon Woo Jin), who is shrouded in clouds of mystery with a nickname of “The Silent Monster.” However, as we quickly learn, the truth is Hwan Ki is an extremely shy introvert, making it hard for him to communicate with other people.

As we mentioned before, Chae Ro Woon is very energetic and she 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.

Hwan Ki is incredibly genuine and effective as a character, evoking sympathy and empathy for his emotional state of being. He has trouble speaking to others, due to severe anxiety issues and it doesn’t help that Hwan Ki’s family belittles his existence, further lowering his self-confidence.

As a result, he has a tendency to overthink things, leading to numerous misunderstandings with those around him. However, despite his social flaws, Hwan Ki is a caring and selfless individual, with his true personality shining through a number of thoughtful moments throughout the drama.

And here’s the general information and official poster for Introverted Boss (2017).

Spoiler Alerts From Introverted Boss (2017)

In the final episodes, Hwan-ki’s father proposes that they blame the cover-up of Ji-hye’s suicide on Woo-il’s overactive loyalty, and this pushes Hwan-ki over the edge. He yells at his father to stop and asks why he can’t hear any voice but his own.

The assemblyman shouts that you can’t survive in the world by being quiet. Hwan-ki agrees and says that he’s lived with shame for being the way he is, but he also wonders how his father can be so shameless. Wiping away the tears from his eyes, he walks out, leaving his father looking shaken.

Back in his office, Hwan-ki is staring out of the window when Woo-il walks in. The press is waiting for their official position, he says. Hwan-ki tells him that they should stop dissembling information and just take responsibility for what happened. He says that he’ll step down for the good of the company and hand over the reins to Woo-il.


Introverted Boss: The Cast


Yeon Woo Jin as Eun Hwan Ki


He plays the role of protagonist Eun Hwan-ki, an unbearably shy but successful head of a PR company. He may be stellar at his job, but his severe introverted personality only causes discomfort for the people around him. Try as he might to conceal himself under his black cap and hood, they’re no invisibility cloak, and he can’t remain in his penthouse abode forever; the hermit crab has to step out of its shell at some point, and high jinks ensue.

Park Hye-soo as Chae Ro Woon


She plays the role of Chae Ro-woon, the new employee at his company, and the polar opposite and nightmare of her introverted boss. She’s loud, bold, and has a personal vendetta against him for reasons unknown. I wouldn’t put it past her to exact some sort of revenge, but I think we can expect that it’ll be of the light and humorous variety.

Gong Seung-yeon as Eun Yi Soo


Eun Yi Soo is Hwan-ki’s sister, a chaebol heiress with an introverted personality. She has a mental illness initially instigated by her father’s prolonged verbal and emotional abuse of her brother.

Yoon Park as Kang Woo-il


Kang Woo-il is the warm, confident but sensitive co-CEO of Brain public relations firm and Hwan-ki’s best friend. Also the fiancé of Eun Yi Soo.
