“Unlock My Boss” heralds the unique teamwork between Chae Jong Hyeop, Seo Eun Soo and Park Sung Woong in new character posters!
Based on the original online tool of the same name, ENA’s “Unlock My Boss” is a unique comedy thriller that follows the story of Park In Sung (Chae Jong Hyeop), an unemployed job seeker whose life changes after he picks up a smartphone that talks to him and gives him commands.
This smartphone has trapped the soul of Kim Sun Joo (Park Sung Woong), the CEO of a large IT corporation called Silver Lining, and the story follows Park In Sung’s journey to infiltrate the CEO’s office to uncover the truth. On Park In Sung’s journey, he is accompanied by his secretary Jeong Se Yeon (Seo Eun Soo), who is more like a robot than artificial intelligence technology itself.
Ahead of the drama’s “Unlock My Boss” release in December, he shared intriguing new character posters teasing the dynamic chemistry between Park In Sung, Jeong Se Yeon and Kim Sun Joo, who are now trapped in a mobile phone frame.
First up is Park In Sung, whose cracked phone screen shows the lack of direction and purpose his life currently has. Although he tries hard to find a job, Park In Sung has nothing to show for it other than a “useless” acting degree. Even as he puts aside his dreams and tries to live realistically, his phone screen is littered with messages after messages about him being rejected for job interviews.
However, his life suddenly turns upside down when he accidentally stumbles across a lost phone. As this unexpected situation turns him into CEO overnight, viewers are curious to see what awaits him and whether he will be able to “unlock” CEO Kim Sun Joo.
Despite being incredibly robotic and stoic, Jeong Se Yeon is still brimming with charisma as CEO Kim Sun Joo’s youngest secretary. On her incredibly organized screen, she is overwhelmed with numerous phone calls, texts, calendar invitations and documents showing how busy she is. Given her packed lifestyle, Jeong Se Yeon considers it a luxury to be interested in other people’s lives. After dedicating her life to Kim Sun Joo, Jeong Se Yeon undergoes a dramatic change when her boss is suddenly replaced by Park In Sung. Stay tuned to find out if the illegible Jeong Se Yeon will become friend or foe in Park In Sung’s journey to the truth!
At the heart of this dramatic conspiracy is of course CEO Kim Sun Joo, who is in a state of massive panic while trapped inside his cell phone. In addition to being trapped, Kim Sun Joo’s phone battery is running low and the screen is struggling to stay on. CEO Kim Sun Joo is a world-class developer who turns dreams into reality. Minus the good nature, she has everything anyone could ask for, but Kim Sun Joo is left with nothing when she gets stuck on her phone. When Park In Sung becomes his only lifeline, Kim Sun Joo makes him a lifetime offer to save both his life and the company.
The producers of “Unlock My Boss” said: “The new team game with a CEO stuck in the world of his smartphones will convey newfound banter, funny laughs and tense emotions. Also, expect synergies between Chae Jong Hyeop, Seo Eun Soo and Park Sung Woong as they showcase the game of legendary characters.”
“Unlock My Boss” will premiere on December 7 at 21:00 KST and will be available on Viki!
