If you're in need of a reprieve between watching intense shows (or the unrelenting news), we recommend giving Business Proposal on Netflix a try. The popular series is based on a web novel and webtoon of the same name and had some of the highest ratings globally this year, according to Netflix's weekly charts. After finishing all 12 episodes recently, we can see why it was such a hit.
The Korean rom-com follows Shin Ha Ri (aka Kim Se-jeong, who eagled-eyed K-pop fans might recognize as a member of I.O.I and Gugudan). Ha Ri is a single woman who leads a relatively simple life working in the Food Development Team at GO Food, a large company like PepsiCo. or Nestlé. As a favor to her best friend, Ha Ri agrees to take her place at an arranged blind date with the goal of scaring off her potential suitor, Kang Tae Mu (played by the dapper Ahn Hyo Seop).
