It’s official! After a month when the news about Park Min-young‘s (Seven Day Queen) casting offer in a new tvN drama was released, she is now confirmed to headline Why Secretary Kim opposite actor Park Seo-joon (Fight For My Way).
The office romantic comedy Why Secretary Kim (also known as What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim) is a drama adaptation of a popular webtoon based on Jung Kyung-yoon’s original novel of the same name which was published in 2013. It tells the story of a perfect narcissistic second-generation chaebol named Lee Young-joon, vice president of a large corporation, who has an assistant working for him closely. Park Seo-joon will be playing the egotistical lead male character who has a pretty face and a sharp mind.
Park Min-young, meanwhile, will be taking on the role of the titular Secretary Kim Mi-so who has served Lee Young-joon for nine years. She is a notorious personal aide and a legend among secretaries who does everything for him from making his schedule to fixing any crisis her boss would face. One day something happens to her and she quits her job, but his work relationship with her boss slowly develops into a romantic one.
Why Secretary Kim will be directed by Park Joon-hwa, the same PD who helmed the hit cable drama Because This is My First Life. It is set to air on tvN every Wednesdays and Thursdays this coming May following My Ahjussi.
