Everyone probably believes no one in this world, especially themselves, are perfect, except for one person – Ivan Lee.
Well, he may have the right to brag since he is unmistakably handsome, incredibly intelligent, and utterly affluent being the President and Vice Chairman of their family’s chaebol (Korean term for a large business conglomerate) YumYeon Group. However, these qualities turned him so extremely narcissistic and intimidating that he is so hard to get along with and would choose to stay single as he refuses to seriously date, thinking that he doesn’t deserve less-than-ordinary girls.
As such, it is unbelievable how her secretary Mariel Kim (Park Min Young) is able to endure her boss’ egocentricity, immodesty, and insensitivity for nine years, until she decided to resign. However, despite these deplorable qualities, Ivan possesses attitudes that can make us admire him as a person.
The confidence he brandishes, though always gets overflowing, is something that we should imbibe because it can help us get over the hurdles that would come our way and make us appear strong in the eyes of the people who think that they can crush us.
Aside from considering himself as “Mr. Perfect”, we presume that Ivan’s diligence and passion towards his job may be one of the reasons why he stays single. Well, running a huge company will never be an easy task, right?
Albeit already having everything that the world can offer on his lap, he has remained competitive not only in the professional world, but also in his personal life. As he began to realize that he already fell for Mariel, his older brother would come into the picture and try wooing her—something that would rekindle the rivalry between them.
With the length of time they shared, and perhaps even the decent compensation and benefits the company bestows her, her sudden adieu made him wonder what could have gone wrong. This would turn his world upside down as he finds ways to persuade her to stay by his side.
Brace yourselves to fall under Ivan Lee’s “blockbuster curse” by watching What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim?, beginning September 24 on Primetime Bida, after Halik.
