SBS‘s Webtoon adapted K-Drama Business Proposal is ruling our screens and hearts due to its romantic-comedy story and charming cast!
The SBS drama currently premieres simultaneously on Netflix every Monday and Tuesday. The K-Drama follows Shin Ha Ri (Kim Sejeong, also known as Kim Se Jeong), who pretends to be her friend, Jin Young Seo (Seol In Ah), on a blind date. However, that blind date happens to be with her company’s CEO, Kang Tae Moo (Ahn Hyo Seop)! The troubles start when Tae Moo unexpectedly sets his eyes on marrying Ha Ri, still thinking she is her friend.
While the main storyline focuses on the relationship between Shin Ha Ri and Kang Tae Moo, the second couple has stolen the show. Jin Young Seo, Ha Ri’s friend who started it all, develops feelings for Tae Moo’s secretary and bestie Cha Sung Hoon (played by Kim Min Gue, also known as Kim Min Kyu), and the feeling just might be mutual!
Just as these two have stolen each other’s hearts, they’ve stolen viewers’ hearts too! While we all love the main lead couple, the second leads are a fan-favorite.

These #BusinessProposal couples are so chaotic 😂😂
And Seonghun breaking that toilet door for Youngseo – they can have their own separate drama and it will be a romcom hit 😂😂#BusinessProposalEp6

The two officially got together in Episode 6, sealing the deal with a first kiss, and it just might go down in history because it was sexy AF!
Business Proposal fans were pleasantly surprised by the kiss too. At this time, the main lead couple has not even yet made things official! So, the second leads’ love story is progressing much faster.
And considering how classic K-Dramas commonly shy away during intimate scenes, it was surprising when Young Seo and Sung Hoon began making out. Not to mention that they were still on the street, and public displays of affection are not as common in Korea.
While it certainly got quite steamy on-screen between these two, things went a bit differently off-screen…
SBS recently shared behind-the-scenes clips of the filming of Business Proposal Episode 6, including Seol In Ah and Kim Min Gue’s kiss scene. It was quite different than what we actually saw during the drama!
When they started filming, the kiss didn’t go so smoothly. In fact, the two actors even had something totally different on their minds: food! When the director told them, “Let’s try to practice just that,” he used the word “고거만 (goguhman),” meaning “just that.” The actors heard “고구마 (goguma)” instead, which means “sweet potato!”
Seol In Ah: …three. Kiss.
Seol In Ah: I’m an idiot!
Director: Let’s try to practice just that.
Kim Min Gue: I thought he said let’s eat a sweet potato before we start.
Seol In Ah: Me too. (laughs)
Director: What did you hear?
Seol In Ah and Kim Min Gue: Let’s eat a sweet potato before we start.
The scene is certainly not the simplest of scenes either. Seol In Ah has to pretend to be drunk and fall too!
I accidentally landed like this.

Also, it was so cold during filming, and they were outside! So, Seol In Ah continued to move around in between takes, likely to warm up. In doing so, she hopped around and sang.

Kim Min Gue: Please save me.
Caption: Please save me…!! Sung Hoon can’t handle Young Soo
Seol In Ah: *sings* I want you, baby! I need you, baby!
Kim Min Gue: What song is that?
Finally, when it came time to film the famous kiss, the jokes didn’t end there. They even missed each other’s lips!
Seol In Ah: Let go of me by the time I count to three, or I’ll really cross the line.
Seol In Ah: One… Two.. Three..
Kim Min Gue: Wait a second. (laughs) You keep putting your face in weird places!
Just like their characters, Kim Min Gue and Seol In Ah are charming and hilarious!
