Protect the Boss rewards those with faith in their dramas, who ask not for immediate gratification or instantaneous exposition. This is a drama where the viewer isn’t straining to figure out what is going to happen, yet remains curious about situations that are clearly presented but not so easy to immediately ascertain it entire purpose. I really appreciate that.
It’s been a long time since I’ve watched a rom-com not rely on any gags or typical plot crutches, instead really driving the plot through meaningful character interactions. While neither set of OTPs make me dying to see them finally get together, because this drama doesn’t thrive on grandiose passion, it instead makes me savor their every moment and linger in their every look.
