Have you ever decided lớn start a K-drama simply because you love the actors in it and not so much because the synopsis of the story intrigued you? Well this was the case for me with 2016"s romantic comedy / corporate business drama Ms. Temper và Nam Jung Gi. I loved the main actor Yoon lịch sự Hyun (Secret Garden
, I Hear Your Voice) and especially Lee Yo Won (from 49 DaysEmpire Of Gold). I"d watch either of them sit & read the phone book in Korean & not be bored. They both have their own special acting talents và charisma, và in this show they play polar opposite characters, yet eventually (VERY eventually), fall in love và tame each other in various ways. I can be lukewarm about corporate intrigue dramas, in general, but when the stars are all excellent like this cast it makes it more tempting for me to lớn watch.

Then on top of these delectable lead actors we had dynamic actorYun Jung Hoon from Mask
and Sad Love Story who plays Lee Yo Won"s ex-husband in this drama, who tries lớn come back into her life in both personal và professional ways, to lớn usurp the growing relationship between the lead couple characters. I will watch this intense actor in anything ... short of his 2 vampire series ... I just don"t do vampire shows và movies. (That"s been a bugaboo of mine for decades).

A fiery beauty, Ok domain authority Jung (Lee Yo Won), is the youngest team leader in the cosmetics industry in Korea and has moved up the corporate ladder at Golden Cosmetics by her own sharp wits và ability lớn get the best of the men she works with in the office, including her arrogant quái dị Kim Hwan Gyoo (Son Jong Hak from Beautiful Mind). She has been divorced three times so far, which causes her to lớn be a target of gossip in the company và the cosmetic industry at large.

She"s rather infamous:
she doesn"t care what others think about her & she also has quite a temper, hence her nickname. She even works at Golden with one of her ex-husbands, her first, Ji Yoon Ho (Song Jae Hee). As exes go they get along well on a business level, but domain authority Jung wisely keeps her distance emotionally. She also sometimes has professional dealings with her sleazy second ex-husband, Jang Shi Hwan (handsome Lee Jung Jae from the bomb Temptation), who is Director of JJ home Shopping Network, who often arranges to have Golden"s cosmetics lines sold for vị trí cao nhất dollar. He still flirts with da Jung on occasion but it"s lượt thích water rolling off a duck"s back. He might as well just give up. LOL.She uses him but she doesn"t love him. Later on, her THIRD ex-husband comes back into her life, Lee Ji quý phái (Yun Jung Hoon) and he becomes more manipulative behind the scenes than the other two exes combined, mostly due to lớn greed, but also partly for suppressed sexual attraction reasons.

Then we have rival cosmetics company Lovely Cosmetics and their đứng đầu cosmetics designer-creator phái nam Jung Gi (Yoon quý phái Hyun) is an unassuming, placid, divorced single father of a lonely little boy named nam Woo Joo (cutie pie Choi Hyun Joon). They live together in a rather small apartment. Along with Jung Gi"s airhead father phái mạnh Young Gap (Im Ha Ryong) and his lazy (but with untapped potential for later success) younger brother phái nam Bong Gil (Hwang Chan Sung). The reason for Jung Gi"s wife leaving him is never really discussed much but the audience gets the idea she thought he was a wimp .. As well he can be, preferring to lớn be "nice" over smart và ambitious (his character reminded me of a line from the 2014 drama Liar Game
, when the lead guy character says to the lead female character, "You are the type of person who thinks being stupid is the equivalent of being nice." Just change the Liar Game nice character from a young woman to a middle aged man và you have Jung Gi"s character to lớn a T). He can"t say anything that makes others uncomfortable & he"s timid with people he doesn"t know very well. It doesn"t serve him well in the business world. He"s a creative guy, but it takes more than just creativity to succeed in the corporate world: it takes strength & guts & ambition. This our Ms. Temper has in spades.

Then comes a day when Jung Gi has to try và pitch Lovely Cosmetics" new promising cream lớn the public, which will rival one from Golden, but he doesn"t get off on the right foot with the critical "Ms Temper" domain authority Jung at ALL. (In fact he makes the ludicrous mistake of thinking she wants khổng lồ go to bed with him, which results in her kicking him out of her suite of rooms). However, during a fight, a sample of Lovely Cosmetics" new cream spills on the floor and Da Jung applies it to lớn her face, alone in a bathroom, with startling results. She had had bruises on her face from the fight & they magically disappear after she rubs the cream into her face! Impressed và intrigued, da Jung puts her feelers out khổng lồ Lovely Cosmetics và ends up leaving Golden Cosmetics, to the ire of her boss. She is happily hired as section chief at Lovely, and little by little she starts to lớn respect the team she"s in charge of at this company, and especially Jung Gi and his creativity, and she also slowly starts lớn impress his young son, even though she isn"t exactly the motherly type, or demonstrative at all. The little tyke even ends up asking her lớn marry him. Too cute.

After several major career goal mix backs and then successes, the team at Lovely Cosmetics becomes almost like a family. Domain authority Jung mellows, và Jung Gi becomes stronger. Therefore I ended up liking Ms. Temper và Nam Jung Gi more than I expected khổng lồ in the beginning, after a rough start where she was a total shrew và he was a total wimp. Character growth is the BEST thing that K-dramas achieve on a regular basis, and it"s the main reason why they are so addictive. It"s inspiring to lớn see people make positive changes in their lives, and grow closer khổng lồ people they thought they"d never have anything in common with.

If you enjoy these actors, don"t miss it. It ends up being a lot of fun in the long run. There"s also a fun cameo by actor Yoon Shi Yoon, fresh out of the military service, và I got a kick out of seeing him again after two years. He looks more handsome than ever.
