The drama had been premiering simultaneously on Netflix every Monday and Tuesday. The story followed Shin Ha Ri (Kim Sejeong, also known as Kim Se Jeong), who pretended to be her friend, Jin Young Seo (Seol In Ah), on a blind date. However, that blind date happened to be with her company’s CEO, Kang Tae Moo (Ahn Hyo Seop)! The real drama started when Tae Moo unexpectedly set his eyes on marrying Ha Ri, still thinking she was her friend.

What some may not have initially realized is that the drama is actually based on a manhwa/webtoon of the same name by HaeHwa.

Some of the K-Drama’s posters even pay homage to it!

Since Business Proposal is originally a webtoon, the drama contains many comedic and “cartoony” moments.

The K-Drama contains many references to the source material. The first episode even begins with Kang Tae Moo in comic form!

Eagle-eyed viewers may have also noticed that an advertising poster of A Business Proposal webtoon is at the bus stop.

The original authors of A Business Proposal themselves have actually been happy with the adaptation. They ever made “fanart” of the K-Drama!

There were certainly changes made so that the K-Drama would be new. For example, Shin Ha Ri doesn’t use a pink wig in the K-Drama though it was an iconic element of the webtoon. Yet, it is still one of the best adaptations, and the creators clearly put a lot of thought and care into it, as is evident with the casting. Literally, some of the actors look like the characters came to life!

Even Ahn Hyo Seop thinks that Kim Min Gue (also spelled as Kim Min Kyu) looks 90% like the original webtoon character Secretary Cha Sung Hoon!

The makers of the K-Drama clearly wanted to respect the source material. So, although some scenes and storylines were altered or left out, there are still many shots and scenes straight out of the webtoon! Here are our top 10+ picks…

1. The first kiss

Ahn Hyo Seop totally nailed the look!

2. Secretary Cha Sung Hoon and Jin Young Seo’s “date”

The circumstances were different for these scenes, but some of the shots look nearly identical! These characters especially couldn’t have been better cast.

3. Our Mom and Dad

Again, it might be a different story behind it, but the shot looks like the panel!

4. Shin Ha Ri period.

We really couldn’t have asked for a better actress. Kim Sejeong is perfection; she really brought the character to life!

5. The OTP cooking

This is one of our favorite scenes in both the webtoon and the drama! It’s just too cute.

6. Secretary Cha and Young Seo’s sexy scene

It might have been a little less explicit than the webtoon (if you don’t know, it be wildin’ sometimes), but this was all super sexy by K-Drama standards!

7. Tae Moo and Ha Ri’s bedroom scene

Again, the shots are so similar, but the circumstances were a little different. In the webtoon, the couple was on their honeymoon. In the K-Drama, we’re robbed of even a wedding!

8. This wholesome kiss on the cheek

This is so cute, and Ahn Hyo Seop is really great at capturing Tae Moo!

9. The brothers-in-law!

This is one of the best dynamics ever.

10. Ha Ri admitting the truth to Tae Moo

She confessed it the same way in both versions. The main difference is there was no drunk kiss in the adaptation!

11. The grandfather’s love for fishing!

Last but not least, everyone’s favorite grandfather has a love for fishing in both versions of the story.
