Boss and Me is another classic drama which I feel obligated to review, because it’s a classic, and because it gave me the title for this blog.
The title comes from the lead females clothes, which are fantastic – the cutest! Especially her jackets, the kind I have always loved. What I associate most with C-Drama’s are the perfect smile of my secret crush and one of Shan Shan’s amazing jackets. Since one of these great things is a secret, my blog name came from the other 🙂 See some of her adorable clothes here: https://hui3r.wordpress.com/2014/09/16/boss-me-fashion-accessories-pictorial/
The show (for all 2 people in the world who haven’t seen it) is about the head of a company (note: Youngest company leader in China or something like that) who falls in love with an assistant named Xue Shan Shan at his company who got the job because she donated her rare blood to his sister.
The guy (We’ll call him Lǎobǎn) falls for her after watching her eat lunch outside his window in a simple, joyful way which makes him feel happy and less alone, since it’s apparently lonely at the top.
The assistant is less sure about her feelings for Lǎobǎn and then of course after feeling more sure of them, the oh-so-popular love triangle begins.
There are a number of cliches in this show, but there is also a level of depth (which I love) and it plays on some very modern themes (which I also love).
I don’t know how I feel about Lǎobǎn. I wanted him to get the girl despite the fact that he wanted a girl who wasn’t his intellectual equal (not a fan of this) and looked kind of like a walking zombie.
I give this drama the same score as My Drama List, an 8.3/10.
