Character posters out for upcoming drama ‘Why Secretary Kim’

Character posters have been released for tvN’s upcoming office romantic comedy titled What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim (also known as Why Secretary Kim), a drama adaptation of a popular webtoon that tells the story of a perfect narcissistic second-generation chaebol and his secretary who suddenly decides to quit from work after working for him for nine years.

One poster each is out for the three main characters: Park Seo-joon (Fight For My Way), Park Min-young (Seven Day Queen), and Lee Tae-hwan (My Golden Life). Park Seo-joon, who plays the narcissistic vice president of a large corporation, is shown on his poster wearing a suit and lying on a blue sofa. His poster describes his character as “narcissist vice president Lee Young-joon.”

Meanwhile, Park Min-young—who plays the titular Secretary Kim Mi-so, a notorious personal aide and a legend among secretaries—is dressed neatly in business attire and is shown smiling as she answers the phone. Her poster reads: “Legend in the secretary world Kim Mi-so.” Secretary Kim is a competent secretary who does everything for Lee Young-joon. The title of the series refers to her sudden decision to resign from work, asking what happened and why quit all of a sudden.
