In the drama “Business Proposal,” Kang Da-goo is the cheery grandfather of Kang Tae-mu. He supports his grandson Kang Tae-mu’s relationship with Shin Ha-ri and tries to bring them close as much as possible. How does Kang Da-goo appear in the original webtoon? Let’s see what has changed about him during the drama adaptation process.
First, Kang Da-goo has a bossy personality in the webtoon.
Kang Da-goo first appears when he asks his grandson Kang Tae-mu to go on blind dates. Kang Tae-mu rejects his proposal, and Kang Da-goo tells him he’ll stay in the office all day until Kang Tae-mu changes his mind. He’s bossy and doesn’t say many nice things about the people around him.
On the other hand, Kang Da-goo has a warm and welcoming personality in the drama version of “Business Proposal.” He greets everyone with a bright smile, and he is courteous to his employees.
He enjoys watching soap operas while wearing a facial mask in his spare time.
Second, Kang Da-goo does not support Kang Tae-mu and Shin Ha-ri’s relationship.
When Kang Tae-mu first introduces Shin Ha-ri to him, Kang Da-goo wants to show them how stubborn he is. He brags about his family’s wealth in front of Shin Ha-ri and reminds himself that he is not going to easily approve of his grandson’s marriage.
As he points out that Shin Ha-ri is not good at using chopsticks, the atmosphere becomes awkward between them.
Thankfully, an open-minded Shin Ha-ri joins Kang Da-goo in several activities, including his favorite sport, fishing. He gradually opens his mind to Shin Ha-ri to be his grandson’s fiance.
In the drama, Kang Da-goo plays a significant role in Kang Tae-mu’s relationship. When Kang Tae-mu brings Shin Ha-ri to him, it doesn’t take much time for him to like her. As soon as he thinks Shin Ha-ri is a good person, Kang Da-goo takes her to eat his favorite meat bun.
In addition, when Kang Da-goo finds a concert ticket in Shin Ha-ri’s belongings, he forces his grandson Kang Tae-mu to go to the concert with her. The two get close to each other thanks to Kang Da-goo.
