Protect the Boss is a Korean drama series that aired in 2011, and it centers on the life of Noh Eun-seol, a young woman who finds work as a secretary for a chaebol family. This show is produced by Seoul Broadcasting System, and it stars actors such as Ahn Nae-sang, Cha Hwa-yeon, and Choi Kang-hee.

The show's protagonist, Noh Eun-seol, is a struggling young woman who has a difficult family life. Her mother is in debt, and her brother has a gambling habit which puts the family in dire financial straits. Despite her difficulties, Noh Eun-seol is an optimistic and hardworking person. After a series of unsuccessful job interviews, she meets Cha Ji-heon, the youngest son of the family that owns DN Group, a major conglomerate in Korea.

Cha Ji-heon is a charismatic and eccentric young man who has never held a steady job. He is disinterested in the family business and prefers to spend his time riding motorcycles and playing video games. However, after a run-in with his father, Ji-heon decides to hire Noh Eun-seol as his secretary. Although she is initially hesitant, Eun-seol ultimately accepts the job offer.

The DN Group is a complex family business that is run by three siblings: the eldest, Cha Moo-won, who is the COO, the second-oldest, Cha Joo-yeon, who is a former Olympic medalist and head of the Sports Development Team, and their youngest brother, Cha Ji-heon, who is the CEO's favorite son. The family dynamics of the Cha siblings are complex, as they battle for their father's approval and control of the business.

As Noh Eun-seol becomes more involved in the DN Group, she develops a close working relationship with Cha Ji-heon. She is a stabilizing force in his life and helps him navigate the complexities of running the business. Eun-seol is also a source of inspiration for Ji-heon, encouraging him to find his passion and pursue his dreams.

The show is not just about the DN Group and the struggles of its owners, but it also explores the personal lives of the characters. Noh Eun-seol meets and falls in love with Seo Na-yoon, a former chaebol daughter who is now a policewoman. Their relationship is complicated by their differing backgrounds and the pressure they face from their families.
