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.Unofficial synopsis for Introverted Boss
Viewers’ Reviews for Introverted Boss
What did some of the viewers say about Introverted Boss? Take a look at some we found on Twitter:
Im rewatching introverted boss/my shy boss and honestly, its such a good drama its probably one of my favourite in the world, it explains really well the problems of an introverted social anxious person and the reasons why they act so “weirdly”, because they are scared or care +— emily🧁ia; Hongbin’s 단팥 (@KONGCHACHACHA) May 16, 2019
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?)

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’ve a soft spot for #WooDoHwan, so I probably liked Mad Dog more than most.— Drama Current (@DramaCurrent) January 27, 2019
