I started watching Protect the Boss because there were so many romance dramas in that season that sounded good, that I wanted to have watched at least one. Protect the Boss had the storyline that seemed the funniest. The basic story is about a girl that causes problems for a rich guy. He is picky and has a complicated character. While she is looking for a job, she meets the cousin of the rich guy and he seems to like her, so he takes her in as the secretary. Since she needs the money so badly, she tries to endure the bad character of her boss, the rich guy, and he ends up falling for her.

The first few episodes gave me a "Boy over flowers/Hana Yori Dango" feeling. There are many paralleles that just gave me the impression of a "Hanadan 2". The main character is a little bit dumb and cocky, just like Domiyouji. Even the hair is similar! Just that Ji Heon can't fight. Oh, and he has such a cute cat-like smile. He is one of those people that grow on you more and more from episode to episode. At first I was worried because he didn't look like he was my type, but he wins a lot after the first few episodes.

The main girl is also like an older version Tsukushi. She can fight really well, is very strong and never gives up, no matter how hard she's bullied. The third thing is the character of Jaejoong, the cousin aka. Mu Won. He is very kind and lovely, never pressures the main girl and feels like an angel sent from heaven to help her. Basically, it's all that Hanzawa Rui is, too! And the last thing is the side-girl, Ice Cream aka. Na Yun. She is a fun character, you think you might end up hating her when she first appears, but not in this drama! She is funny and cute, is stupid and sometimes does rather bad things, but you can't hate her because in the end you can understand her too well. I really like this about Protect the Boss! No hateful characters, no useless drama and nothing "useless" happened! And that in 18 episodes!

After some time the Hanadan feeling disappears and you see that this drama has it's own charme, but I'd still recommend it to those who like the story of Hana Yori Dango/Boy over Flowers. Those two really feel similar. Just that there isn't a bad mother, that you'll hate forever. In this drama, you understand the actions of the characters most of the time, they seem very real and human and I can't say anything bad about the storyline either. I was afraid the two addional episodes wouldn't make sense, but everything felt so round and great at the end, there's really nothing I could complain about. Except for a lacking OST, maybe. No song seemed to strike me (aside the one that Ji Seong is singing in the end), but every JYJ/DBSK fan will be happy with the OST, since Jae Jung is singing it.

Fazit: Aside from the lacking OST, there is nothing bad. Please go and watch it, if you want to see a good and funny romance drama with nice chemistry!

I feel that they're rather similar, with a rude spoiled boss who needs guidance from an employee to be a better successor in the eyes of his father.

Both series involve a rich man who falls in love with a poor and strong woman. And of course there is a another man involved. Unlike most dramas, these drama series do not have that "beautiful" woman as a main actor. If you like a series where the man will do anything to get his crush to fall in love with him, you should check these two out!

Although I like it, I have to put this one on hold. The last couple of episodes kills me! I'm really angry at the episode extension, because it pretty much ruins the show. I thought this would be one of my favourites but I'm not so sure anymore. I'll have to get back to this one some other time. I'm really tired at the moment.

Pretty much the best drama I've seen in a long time. Great acting and refreshing plot, it takes would would be a dull rom-com and amps it up with oodles of humor, heart, and feeling. It's slice-of-life cupcake with comedy for filling and fluffy sprinkles of romance.

I will admit that the 2 episode extension hurt this drama more than helped it. The manufactured angst was blatantly obvious and unnecessary. But since things picked right back up to amazing territory with the last episode I finished off the series satisfied.

I will forever love this drama for all the laughs and fangirlie squees it provided me. I adore all the characters (and I mean ALL) and I will miss this cast dearly. HIGHLY recommend!!
