Business Proposal | The Guide to Becoming a Perfect Boyfriend feat. Kang Tae Moo

Kang Tae Moo ended her contract with Shin Geum Hui/Shin Hai Ri. The Netflix/ TvN Kdrama Business Proposal will serve as a roadmap to becoming the “Perfect Boyfriend” as defined by Kang Tae Moo.

If you’re confused let’s rewind a bit. Kang Tae Moo was moved by Shin Ha Ri’s drunk but sincere behaviour and decided to forgive her. In order to do so, Kang Tae Moo fired Shin Geum Hui as the pretend girlfriend and decided to make her (Shin Ha Ri) her real girlfriend.

As Kang Tae Moo had introduced Shin Geum Hui to his grandpa, keeping her around can be problematic as the person he fell in love with was Shin Ha Ri. Kang Tae Moo was determined to woo Shin Ha Ri and propose to her.

However, not so fast, Kang Tae Moo completely transformed to become the ideal “Perfect Boyfriend” that exists in the Kdramas!

Time to Propose

Kang Tae Moo was quite confident in his looks and skills. He was sure if he confessed, Shin Ha Ri had no reason to reject her. Kang Tae Moo was moving quite fast, despite the concerns expressed by Cha Sung Hoon.

Shin Ha Ri was prepared to meet up with Kang Tae Moo to clear the situation and come clean. Kang Tae Moo had long forgotten her and even prepared a surprise event to propose to her.

Well, talk about things going too fast! What Kang Tae Moo never saw coming was a resignation letter handed over by Shin Ha Ri. It was really shocking and unexpected for him.

It’s so like Shin Ha Ri to deliver her presentation to point out her contribution as his employee. Shin Ha Ri didn’t want to quit and Kang Tae Moo had no intention to fire her.

Welp, there goes the grand plan to confess out of the window. Better luck next time. Under the pretext of work, Kang Tae Moo invited Shin Ha Ri for a movie date.

Looks like the luck wasn’t in his favour as the date was ruined by Shin Ha Ri’s coworkers who dropped by unannounced.

Work or Date?

Since Kang Tae Moo’s last attempt failed, this time he disguised the date as a business trip. Gotta give credit to this man who had everything planned, and a little bit of stalking on social media to learn more about Shin Ha Ri.

Okay, that much is pretty acceptable! The soon to be couple took a trip to Sokcho where Shin Ha Ri always wanted to visit. Unfortunately, the place was closed and they couldn’t visit the restaurant.

Poor luck at it again for Kang Tae Moo. Moving on to his next plan, he took the services of the famous hamburger stall which is another favourite of Shin Ha Ri.

Impress the Fake and Snake Friends

It was an unexpected surprise and a bad coincidence when Shin Ha Ri met her so-called friends including Go Yoo Ra (Lee Min Woo’s girlfriend). Go Yoo Ra is a typical definition of a snake who enjoys the misfortune of others. She was pretty much attacking Shin Ha Ri earlier when they met and saw her in the same hotel, this was another golden chance for her to egg Shin Ha Ri.

Go Yoo Ra was pretty forceful toward Shin Ha Ri to introduce her mysterious boyfriend to them. To Shin Ha Ri’s surprise, Kang Tae Moo arrived in the nick of time to save her from the predicament.

Kang Tae Moo introduced himself as Shin Ha Ri’s boyfriend and pretty much mesmerised everyone. Go Yoo Ra had no face left to save that was satisfying. Unfortunately, Go Yoo Ra and her friends were trash-talking Shin Ha Ri in their absence.

Although uncomfortable, Kang Tae Moo wanted to help Shin Ha Ri save her dignity in front of these fake/snake friends. Kang Tae Moo treated everyone to dinner and played the role of the perfect clingy boyfriend whose world revolved around his lover, Shin Ha Ri.

Not only that, to top the icing on the cake, Kang Tae moo clearly established the “Rich Boyfriend” persona and his endless love like a limitless card. Although showing off wealth can be obnoxious, when Kang Tae Moo did it, it looked classy and a good way to shut up these nosy and materialistic people.

Kang Tae Moo was slaying the role of a perfect loyal boyfriend who was caring, clingy, good looking and rich.

The Fishing Face-Off

Go Yoo Ra was smiling on the outside while feeling irritated on the inside. The slow burn was evident on her face. Her boyfriend Lee Min Woo visited them.

Lee Min Woo can sometimes be suspicious as he focuses way more on Shin Ha Ri than her own girlfriend. No wonder Go Yoo Ra is subconsciously jealous of Shin Ha Ri.

Kang Tae Moo totally pulled the perfect boyfriend charade when he matched his schedule with Shin Ha Ri and pushed off work to spend more time with her. The people made plans to go on a yacht and later enjoy fishing as Lee Min Woo was good at it.

They started showing off and competing who can catch the most fish. Well, it wasn’t wrong for Kang Tae Moo’s competitive skills to emerge as Lee Min Woo indirectly criticised Shin Ha Ri and Kang Tae Moo for dating.

Lee Min Woo’s point was the class difference that triggered off Kang Tae Moo.  Kang Tae Moo truly fell for Shin Ha Ri so it was natural for him to defend his lover if anyone criticised or said ill about her.  

When Shin Ha Ri fell sick, Kang Tae Moo immediately took off to provide her treatment. Later, Kang Tae Moo apologised for his actions and confessed his feelings for Shin Ha Ri!
