Jin Young-seo, the best friend of protagonist Shin Ha-ri, is unquestionably one of the most upbeat characters in the drama “Business Proposal.” Seol In-ah, who plays the role, has gotten a lot of praise for her comedic and bright acting.
In the webtoon “Business Proposal,” what type of character was Jin Young-seo? Let’s take a look at what has changed since the webtoon was turned into a drama.
First, Jin Young-seo is still dependent on her wealthy father.
Jin Young-seo first appears in the webtoon, offering to pay for her friend Shin Ha-ri if she goes on a blind date.
After the blind date, Jin Young-seo asks Shin Ha-ri to go meet Kang Tae-mu once again to ensure that Kang Tae-mu is not discussing the marriage with her. Jin Young-seo suggests to Shin Ha-ri that she’ll pay four times more than the initial payment if Shin Ha-ri accepts her request. She is well funded by her family’s wealth.
In the drama “Business Proposal,” Jin Young-seo can’t stand it when her father sets her up on blind dates. She declares her independence from her father and departs from her father’s mansion. She rents a small apartment that happens to be next to Cha Sung-Hoon‘s. Although Jin Young-seo can still afford the sofa she desires, she does not appear to be as wealthy as she appears in the webtoon.
Jin Young-seo tries to help her friend Shin Ha-ri, who needs to pay the penalty to Kang Tae-mu. However, the money envelope she gives to Shin Ha-ri is so light. Even Shin Ha-ri thinks it’s very little money. Jin Young-seo complains to her friend Shin Ha-ri about how difficult it is for her to make ends meet on her salary alone.
Second, Jin Young-seo is a romantic and emotional character in the webtoon.
Jin Young-seo has always hoped to meet her prince in destiny, which is why she avoids blind dates. When she sees Cha Sung-hoon for the first time, she immediately has a crush on him.
Jin Young-seo goes through emotional ups and downs since then, until she is finally with Cha Sung-hoon.
She is overjoyed every time she thinks about Cha Sung-hoon after their first meeting. Meanwhile, Cha Sung-hoon’s boss, Kang Tae-mu, asks him to go on a blind date. When Cha Sung-hoon informs Jin Young-seo about his blind date, Jin Young-seo bursts into tears and becomes depressed.
Cha Sung-hoon eventually returns to meet her and apologizes that he met another woman on the blind date. Jin Young-seo accepts the apology and is relieved.
On the same night, she kisses Cha Sung-hoon passionately.
In the drama “Business Proposal,” Jin Young-seo expresses interest in Cha Sung-hoon, but she is preoccupied with her own life. She accepts gifts from another man who lives in the same apartment complex.
Jin Young and Cha Sung-hoon cross paths several times by chance, and Jin Young-seo appears to enjoy mocking Cha Sung-hoon. She draws an invisible line between them when they’re seated next to each other in the Udon restaurant. She apologizes to Cha Sung-hoon while smiling when her udon’s steam crosses the line.
