Introverted Boss

Introverted Boss (aka My Shy Boss or 내성적인 보스) is a tvN office-themed K-Drama that stars Yeon Woo-jin and Park Hye-su, who played the lead roles of Eun Hwan-gi and Chae Ro-woon. Episode 1 aired on January 2017 and the series has 16 episodes in total. Here’s our unofficial synopsis of Introverted Boss:

Despite being the CEO of a huge and reputable public relations company, Eun Hwan-gi shies away from all sorts of social interaction. His lack of visibility makes many of his employees regard him as incompetent and apathetic. When a tragic death befalls the workplace, Hwan-gi decides to lock himself up completely, making him a recluse in his own company and society.

Chae Ro-woon decides to join Hwan-gi’s firm with a certain agenda: to find out why her sister died in the company. She meets Hwan-gi and becomes entangled in his affairs. Along with her co-workers, they form a subsidiary called Silent Monster, which helped Hwan Gi open himself up and Ro-woon understand the reason behind her sister’s death.

Viewers’ Reviews for Introverted Boss

What did some of the viewers say about Introverted Boss? Take a look at some we found on Twitter:

The two-part tweet from @KONGCHACHACHA, which I edited, reads: I’m rewatching Introverted Boss or My Shy Boss, and, honestly, it’s such a good drama. It’s probably one of my favorites in the world. It explains really well the problems of an introverted, social, and anxious person and the reasons why they act so weird — because they are scared too much about everything (and I speak from personal experience). It’s refreshing to see the kind, introverted lead and his journey to overcoming his problem (social anxiety, not introversion because it’s NOT a problem. It’s a personality trait, okay?)

Retweeting the tweet that says “Unpopular opinion: K-dramas edition”, user @FAMILLENIUM adds “Introverted Boss deserves recognition.”

(Comment below if you know which K-Drama is the GIF of Yoo Seung-ho from!)

“Yeon Woo-jin really did shine in Introverted Boss. That was an amazing performance…”

Twitter user @kdramasrelated gives the K-Drama a 10/10 and highlights the following:

  • A CEO who is extremely shy, so his employees do not know him well.
  • One of his female employees is so energetic, and she wants to reveal who her boss really is.
  • I love their chemistry.
  • A lot of funny scenes

Of course, there were some viewers who expressed dislike on the K-Drama. Here’s the tweet from @DramaCurrent, who responds to @stinna03’s query: Hi @stinna03, tough question. Come Back Mister & The Best Hit were great. Introverted Boss & Sassy Girl bombed, so I don’t recommend them. I didn’t hear feedback on Witch at Court or Strongest Delivery. I have a soft spot for #WooDoHwan, so I probably liked Mag Dog more than most.
