Protect the Boss (Korean Drama)

I haven't had any books to review lately and with still holiday fever in my system I've done so many other things than reading. Watching some Asian drama is one of them. So, I thought to post a series review on one them.

Title: Protect The Boss
Genre: Comedy, Romance, Action

(From Wikipedia)
Cha Ji-heon (Ji Sung) is an incredibly immature young man who is useless at his job as a director at DN Group, where the chairman is his father (Park Yeong-gyu). Ji-heon has a longstanding rivalry in work and love with cousin Cha Mu-won (Kim Jaejoong), as Mu-won is a mature, hardworking, and seemingly perfect executive, and the two both have a romantic history with Seo Na-yoon (Wang Ji-hye). Spunky and tough Noh Eun-seol (Choi Kang-hee) is struggling to find full-time work because of her juvenile delinquent record and poor academic background. After giving the hiring directors a piece of her mind during a job interview at DN Group, she is surprised to find herself hired by Mu-won (who was captivated by her interview) to be the secretary to Ji-heon. Determined not to be fired from her first professional job, Eun-seol works diligently at putting up with Ji-heon's childishness and keeping him in check. As their working relationship progresses, they earn each others' trust and friendship, and Eun-seol helps Ji-heon deal with his phobias and prove himself capable of becoming DN Group's successor. Things get more complicated when Ji-heon and Mu-won both fall for Eun-seol, who doesn't want to get mixed up with either of them... or does she?
My Review:

It’s a very refreshing series. For a change it’s the woman who’s tough and protects the man. The story flow is great and not bored moment, there is always something that makes me want to continue to the next scene or episode ‘till the end. The female lead is admirable; I like how she fights back to those who’s tramping over her injusticely and how she face life straightforwardly and not just curl up and cry. And male lead is simply adorable. He’s seemingly fragile, coward but (except on some occasion, especially if his love is involve). His childish, annoying, spoilt yet so lovable, ‘cause even the way he is, he manage to show his masculine side even though he almost taken the role of a woman. I like how he naturally commits an act that really suits his character.
Even the antagonist is lovable in this series (though many still can't bring themselves to like because of her character from another series)
