“Business Proposal” Hong Kong version stars local model and actress Hanna Chan as the office worker who goes on a blind date disguised as her rich best friend and Anson Lo as the CEO who is being pressured by his grandfather to find a suitable wife. Intent on making a bad impression, the young woman finds herself in a dilemma when she discovers that her date is her company’s big boss and that he is determined to marry her.
In the Korean version, Kim Se-jeong plays the role of the office worker, and Ahn Hyo-seop is the CEO. Meanwhile, Kim Min-gue is the CEO’s assistant, and Seol In-ah is the officer worker’s best friend.
Hong Kong’s “Business Proposal” follows the original storyline of the webtoon whose creator, HaeHwa, expressed excitement for this new adaptation.
This Cantonese adaptation’s cast members are household names in Hong Kong. In fact, leading men Edan and Anson are part of the popular Hong Kong boy group Mirror. There are also tweaks to the story to appeal to local viewers. For instance, instead of a fried chicken company, the HK version will be situated in a Hong Kong-style restaurant. Certain characters like the grandfather’s driver will have bigger screen exposure.
