'A Business Proposal' Ending Explained: Does Tae-moo marry Ha-ri? Will there be a Season 2?
What a rollercoaster ride it was as Go Food’s CEO Kang Tae-moo fell in love with his employee, Shin Ha-ri while his secretary, Cha Sung-hoon fell in love with his next-door neighbor who was “allegedly” far richer than he was, Jin Young-seo. Fans of SBS’ ‘A Business Proposal’ bid the K-drama a farewell after its final episode aired on April 5. While the dating scandal involving Kang Tae-moo in the show was confirmed to be fake in his own words, fans will miss watching new episodes of the Ahn Hyo Seop and Kim Se Jeong show.
‘ A Business Proposal ’ was a mega success as its popularity brought extreme success for all of the cast members including Ahn Hyo-seop who played Kang Taemoo, Kim Se-jeong who played Shin Hari as well as Kim Min-gue, and Seol In-ah who played the side couple, Sunghoon and Youngseo respectively. With the show ending in only 12 episodes unlike the usual K-drama ending of 16 episodes, fans are left wanting more as they ask certain questions about the finale.

A Business Proposal Ending Explained
The show started with Shin Hari (played by Kim Sejeong ) disguising herself as Jin Youngseo, her rich best friend in order to save her from attending a blind date with Go Food’s young CEO, Kang Taemoo (played by Ahn Hyoseop). While Shin Hari tries to make the date a failure, Kang Taemoo is determined to marry her and eventually her disguise falters. Kang Taemoo realizes Shin Hari is his employee and eventually falls in love with her as they both set off to date. Kang Taemoo’s grandfather, Chairman Kang however is not happy about the initial lie and disapproves of Shin Hari as the future wife of Kang Taemoo.
In the final episode, we see that Chairman Kang is seriously ill and would need to undergo treatment in the US in order to recover. Kang Taemoo departs to the US as he and Shin Hari agree to continue their long-distance relationship. As a year passes by, she starts getting frustrated given the fact that he is always busy during their calls. One fine day, Hari decides to go to the states herself but turns out that the cab she was hailing for herself has Kang Taemoo who flew back to South Korea in order to propose to Hari with a ring. She ends up accepting his proposal and the show comes to an end.
What happened to Sung-hoon and Young-seo
The side couple of the show obviously stole the hearts of all fans. Their story started at a convenience store where both Cha Sunghoon (played by Kim Mingue) and Jin Youngseo (played by Seol Inah) fell in love at first sight. After she introduces herself to him, Sunghoon finally learns that Youngseo was the one who sent Hari for the blind date with his boss, Kang Taemoo. Sunghoon immediately draws the line and asks her to stop interacting with him despite the two being neighbors, they finally overcome their issues and start their romantic relationship.
Sunghoon eventually proposes to Youngseo after she finds a ring in the glove box of his car. Because Youngseo comes from a rich family and Sunghoon is a mere secretary, her father orders him to break up with Youngseo and part ways with her. Youngseo, who was with Sunghoon at that time ends up resigning from her father’s company and ending all relations with her father. Now with no monetary support from her father, Youngseo decides to start a new business by taking a loan from the bank.
Sunghoon shocks her as he hands Youngseo his bank passbook that reads he has saved up 1 billion won. Sunghoon asks to be her first investor instead of just giving the money to Youngseo. He then finally takes a year-long break from work with his boss, Kang Taemoo being in the US and spends the time planning his wedding with Youngseo.
Will there be a Season 2?
Fans are shocked that the show ended far too soon and Kang Taemoo only returned from the US in the final two minutes of the final episode of ‘A Business Proposal’. The show has been called a “comfort” drama after it ended with a nationwide rating of 11.4% for its final episode. While there is no official news about a second season just yet, fans are hopeful that ‘A Business Proposal’ gets a new season given that it was only 12 episodes long unlike regular 16-episode K-dramas.

that was.... an underwhelming finale. it's like they ran out of as gas and just made whatever to wrap things up with the least controversy - after 11 excellent episodes with a lot fizz, the last one was surprisingly flat. the only bright side is that it does leave a small window of opportunity for a season 2.

Stream it or skip it: 'a time called you' on netflix, a drama about love, loss and time travel, stream it or skip it: 'destined with you' on netflix, a south korean romance between a nerdy woman and a lawyer under a supernatural curse, ‘mask girl’ ending explained: who survives the deadly showdown.
We’ve talked about the “meet-cutes” in romantic K-dramas before. But we haven’t seen a show with as many “meet-cutes” in a first episode as Business Proposal , a new drama on Netflix. Read on and find out how many you can put up with.
BUSINESS PROPOSAL : STREAM IT OR SKIP IT?
Opening Shot: A young man in a suit trudges through the airport. First we see him in animated form, then the animation goes away and we see him in live action.
The Gist: Kang Tae-mu (Ahn Hyo-seop) has been working overseas for GO Food, the company founded by his grandfather, Kang Da-goo (Lee Deok-hwa). He has been in an overseas office, but has come back to Korea to be installed as the company’s president. He’s serious and detail-oriented, and his grandfather sees him as a workaholic.
Even at the “inaugural” on his first day as the company’s president, he sends his chief of staff, Cha Sung-hoon (Kim Min-kyu) to make a perfunctory speech explaining that he doesn’t have time for all of this ceremony.
At the ceremony is Shin Ha-ri (Kim Se-jeong), a relatively new researcher who wasn’t at the company the last time Tae-mu was in Korea. She has had a crush on Lee Min-woo (Song Won-seok) since their university days, and when he calls her on her birthday, she foregoes birthday dinner plans with her co-workers and goes straight to the chef’s restaurant.
“What if he’s planning to transfer from the friendship line to the boyfriend express?” asks Ha-ri’s bestie Jin Young-seo (Seol In-ah). It turns out he isn’t, but not before she runs in his arms and smashes a cake meant for some of his best customers.
Chairman Kang wants his grandson to find a wife, so he tells Tae-mu that he’s set him up on a series of blind dates with women from some of Seoul’s biggest business families. Tae-mu wants nothing to do with it, but suddenly agrees to go on the first one after a lot of prodding.
Young-seo finds out she’s going on a blind date with some business family’s son, and she hates these setups, so she asks Ha-ri to go in her place; it’s worked before. Ha-ri agrees so she can pay off a debt to her parents’ neighbor after a kerfuffle. When she shows up, she realizes the date is with the president of her company. So she tries her best to turn him off, acting unhinged and talking about the men in her life. None of it dissuades him; he even says yes to her offer to get a room.
After the date, he tells Sung-hoon that he wants to marry who he thinks is Young-seo. She comes from a good family, he likes her honesty, and it’ll get his grandfather off his back. When Young-seo hears this, she persuades Ha-ri to meet him and tell him that she’s not interested. Ha-ri tries one again to tell her that he’s a great catch. Let’s just say things get more complicated from there.
What Shows Will It Remind You Of? Take a romantic K-drama like Forecasting Love and Weather and amplify the meet-cutes by 10, and you have Business Proposal .
Our Take: Business Proposal is based on a webtoon called The Office Blind Date , and it seems to have that kind of feeling, where there’s complications and convolutions galore, and characters that are only somewhat based on reality.
Your enjoyment of the series really depends on how you feel about misunderstandings and complications. As much as Ha-ri wants her friend Young-seo to straighten out this mess, she still gets in deeper the more she meets Tae-mu in the guise of a crazy version of Young-seo. And, of course, she’s run into him at the office, and she has seemed to get his attention for the product research she’s done. So how will she be able to separate her office self from the one pretending to be Young-seo? And when she inevitably falls for Tae-mu, where does she go from there?
Then there’s the matter of Young-seo, who has a love-at-first-sight encounter with Sung-hoon outside a convenience store. You see where this is going, right? When she’s around Sung-hoon, who’s around Tae-mu, who does she say she is? All of these complications might make for a good episode of Three’s Company , but it feels exhausting for a multiple-episode K-drama.
Sex and Skin: None.
Parting Shot: Trying to avoid Min-woo, Ha-ri ducks into what turns out to be Tae-mu’s car, and sparks fly.
Sleeper Star: Lee Deok-hwa is funny as Chairman Kang, who still wants to watch “his shows” even though he’s the chairman of a huge food conglomerate.
Most Pilot-y Line: One of the scandalous things Ha-ri wanted to do to turn Tae-mu off is… show her bare shoulders! Wow, that is scandalous!
Our Call: SKIP IT. You may like the complications of a romantic K-drama like Business Proposal , but we feel it’s trying a bit too hard to make a unique love story.

“Will it be a happy ending for Ha-ri and Tae-moo’s couple?” just two episodes left until the end of “Business Proposal”
In the popular sbs drama “business proposal,” ceo kang tae-moo (ahn hyo-seop) and his employee shin ha-ri (kim se-jung) are making headlines every day with their special chemistry..
Kang Tae-moo confirms his feelings for Shin Ha-ri and goes straight for it, causing excitement among viewers.
Sub-couple Cha Sung-hoon ( Kim Min-kyu ) and Jin Young-seo ( Seol In-ah ) are also showing their sweet side after overcoming the crisis caused by misunderstanding and reaffirming each other’s feelings.
“ Business Proposal ” has been accelerating fast to episode 10 and will have its grand finale tomorrow (Mar 5th).
While the upcoming last two episodes are the hottest topic as the moment as there are still many details to be solved, let’s take a look at six details to pay attention to in the remaining two episodes.
1. The opposition from the fan of “Be strong, Geum-hee”, Kang Tae-moo’s grandfather Kang Da-gu
In the drama, Kang Da-gu (played by Lee Deok-hwa ) did not welcome Shin Ha-ri as his negative impression with her continued.
He discovered Shin Ha-ri in the men’s bathroom of the company and made her write an apology, while his bad feelings toward Shin Ha-ri reached a certain extreme.
Kang Tae-moo , who faced the opposition from Kang Da-gu in the 10th episode, also confessed his sincerity toward Shin Ha-ri in front of his grandfather.
Everyone is paying attention to whether Kang Da-gu , a fan of “Be Strong, Geum-hee,” which is about the love between a conglomerate and an ordinary woman, will be able to accept the love of Kang Tae-moo and Shin Ha-ri .
2. Will the office romance between the CEO and his employee be publicized?
In the drama, Shin Ha-ri and Kang Tae-moo are keeping secret of their relationship thoroughly. It is not easy to publicize the relationship between a CEO and an employee in his own company because of the judgments from people around.
However, Kang Tae-moo could not hide his feelings for Shin Ha-ri and expressed his willingness to continue dating publicly.
The viewers are raising high expectations on whether the two will be able to proudly hold hands at the company.
3. Kim Se-jeong is suddenly pressured to quit her job?
In episode 11, Shin Ha-ri ’s work at the Food Development Team was suspended, and Chairman Kang Da-goo pressured her to resign.
Shin Ha-ri , who graduated from Seoul National University, was named as an outstanding employee who showed impressive performance in the big company managed by Kang Tae-moo .
In addition, the idea of carrying ọut promotions through Youtube helped the company become an issue and increase sales significantly.
Therefore, many people are curious about how Shin Ha-ri , who loves her job so much, will overcome this difficulty due to the sudden crisis.
4. Will “Line Couple” be opposed by Jin Young-seo’s father?
Cha Sung-hoon and Jin Young-seo Couple, which was nicknamed the “ Line Couple ” because of their status difference, finally began a sweet relationship.
However, Chairman Jin (Lee Ki-young) , father of the chaebol girl Jin Young-seo got to know about the two’s romance.
Since Cha Sung-hoon is an orphanage and Kang Tae-moo ’s secretary, the rich Chairman Jin is not satisfied with him. This is expected to cause a huge challenge to the Line Couple.
In this situation, attention is focused on whether Cha Sung-hoon and Jin Young-seo , who appear at a dinner with Chairman Jin , will be able to get permission from him.
5. The original webtoon has a “happy ending” as they get married and go on a honeymoon to Hawaii. What about the drama?
The webtoon of the same name, which is the original of “ Business Proposal “, had a happy ending as Kang Tae-moo and Shin Ha-ri got married after overcoming all difficulties.
With Kang Da-gu ‘s active support, Kang Tae-moo and Shin Ha-ri succeeded in getting married.
After the wedding, they went on a honeymoon to Hawaii, marking the beginning of a happy marriage.
Viewers are paying keen attention to whether they will be able to achieve a happy ending and reach the goal of marriage in the drama as well.
6. “Bromance” and “Sismance” that you should pay attention to until the end
“ Business Proposal ” received a lot of love for showing the incredible visual combination and chemistry of Ahn Hyo-seop, Kim Se-jeong, Kim Min-kyu and Seol In-ah .
However, Ahn Hyo-seop and Kim Min-kyu , who played the roles of a CEO and his secretary, as well as Seol In-ah and Kim Se-jeong , who took on the roles of each other’s best friends, also contributed to the drama’s success.
Kang Tae-moo and Cha Sung-hoon has been together every day since childhood and often bickers with each other. However, after work, they talks to each other like real brothers, making viewers happy by showing their family-like affection.
Jin Young-seo , who is full of cuteness and love, and Shin Ha-ri , who always takes care of her friend, also made viewers smile.
Let’s pay attention to whether these bromance and sismance chemistry, which is loved by viewers as much as the main couples, can end with a happy smile from viewers.

Her long-distance relationship with Tae-moo is going strong with the two keeping in touch via video call. But Ha-ri has doubts when a scandal breaks out about Tae-moo and a cellist and he won’t answer her calls.
She decides to confront Tae-moo in person, heading to the airport to catch a flight to the US. She meets Tae-moo there who clears up the cellist misunderstanding (the cellist’s family planted the story about her and Tae-moo).

Yes, Tae-moo and Ha-ri end up together at the end of Business Proposal .

Sung-hoon ( Kim Min-gue ) supports Young-seo in her decision to start her own business, even offering to fund her project.
He has a lot of money saved up: 1.7 billion won!
One year later, Sung-hoon is shown building a model home.
Why? I have no idea and the drama doesn’t bother explaining. Sung-hoon didn’t follow Tae-moo to the US for Grandpa’s treatment so he couldn’t work as his secretary.
Maybe he just took the year off work? It’s not like he needs the money anyway!
What Happened to Young-seo?
After overhearing her father ask Sung-hoon to break up with her, Young-seo ( Seol In Ah ) quits her job at her father’s company and cuts ties with him.

He admits to Ha-ri that he and Yoo-ra were no good together and that the relationship is truly over.
He asks Ha-ri if they can be close friends again when he returns to Korea but Ha-ri is non-commital, telling him it might take some time.
They part ways with a handshake.

Min-woo and Yoo-ra remain broken up (thank God).
Do Ms Yeo and Mr Gye End Up Together?
One year later, Ha-ri’s bickering co-workers, Ms Yeo and Mr Gye, are married.
What Happened to Tae-moo’s Grandfather (Chairman Kang)?
After Tae-moo and Ha-ri’s relationship becomes public knowledge, Chairman Kang ( Lee Deok-hwa ), Tae-moo’s grandfather, tries his best to separate the two but fails.
He fakes an illness initially to try and manipulate Tae-moo, but is later diagnosed with a serious heart issue that can’t be treated in Korea. Tae-moo takes him to the US for treatment.
After a year, he recovers and gives his approval to Tae-moo and Ha-ri’s relationship (off-screen).
Do Ha-ri’s parents approve of Tae-moo?
Episode 12 of Business Proposal begins with Ha-ri’s parents finding out about her relationship with Tae-moo.
Her parents are concerned about the power imbalance in their relationship with the huge differences in their social and economic statuses.
Tae-moo has a heartfelt conversation with Ha-ri’s father and earnestly promises to protect Ha-ri.
After their initial bout of suspicion and worry, Ha-ri’s parents give the couple their blessing.
Business Proposal Ending Review
I’m not a big fan of how Grandpa finally gave Ha-ri his seal of approval off-screen. I enjoyed their relationship when Ha-ri was pretending Geum-hi and I was hoping Business Proposal would mend their relationship sooner so we could get the comedic duo back.
Grandpa’s disapproval and surly attitude while understandable was not entertaining and a bit of a downer in the final episodes.
I do appreciate that despite his anger at Ha-ri’s deception, Grandpa was genuinely looking out for her. He knows the malicious gossip and negative scrutiny Ha-ri will face being in a relationship with Tae-moo and was trying to protect them from that.

Netizens Express Their Discontent Over The “Happy Ending” Finale Of “Business Proposal”
Why is the audience not satisfied with the ending of “ Business Proposal “?
After 12 stormy episodes, “ Business Proposal ” finally ended with a happy ending for the two main couples. Kang Tae Moo ( Ahn Hyo Seop ) proposes to Ha Ri ( Kim Se Jeong ) after a year of long distance love.
Young Seo ( Seol In Ah ) quit her job at her father’s company, moved in with Sung Hoon ( Kim Min Kyu ), and the two even established their own company.
Such a satisfying ending, but the audience is still not satisfied.
The problem is because in the last episode, the main couple took a year apart, then met again and ended the love story with an unexpected and rather superficial marriage proposal.
The audience longs for a fairy-tale wedding or at least there must be more eye-catching emotional scenes for this couple.
Audience reaction after the last episode:
- Episode 12 is too short and the ending is rushed? ㅜㅜ Please make it up to episode 16, get married, have a baby, and please do it.
- It felt like an abrupt ending, so it was very disappointing ㅜㅜ
- I don’t know why it’s only episode 12 ㅜㅜ I think we need to have an Season 2 ㅜㅜ Why are you making such a short drama?
- I’ve been waiting for Monday and Tuesday with excitement, but it feels like it went by too quickly… I think it would have been better if it was a 16-episode series. The two of them were so lovely ㅜㅜ I hope to see them again in the next project
- At the end of the day, It feels like the main couple was thrown out in the back room while solving an episode with the people around them!
- As it was made into 12 episodes, the last episode unfolded too quickly and the ending felt like it was just a proposal ㅠㅠ The 16-episodes format is the rule of thumb.
- It would have been better if there were 16 episodes.. Happy ending is good, but it’s too bad and unsatisfying.
- I think episode 12 is a bit short. I feel like something has ended abruptly. The existing 16 or at least 14 seems to be necessary.
- Until episode 14?… No, it would have been great if there was only 1 extra episode. It’s too sad to end with 12 episodes. It’s a happy ending, but why do writers end up with such a hazy ending?
- Drama special these days: “You don’t have to watch the last episode. You’ll get disappointed”
- In the original story, I was looking forward to the scene where Tae Moo’s Grandpa stepped forward and took the side of the sub-couple and said that he was my grandson…. Suddenly, it was a proposal-like ending, and the feeling of watching it was broken.
- If it had been 16 episodes, it would have been a wedding scene for Tae Moo & Hari. It’s a really good drama. It’s good because there’s no stuffy development. I was really happy watching this drama.. Next time, please do 16 episodes!

Business Proposal Ending Explained: Ahn Hyo-seop and Kim Sejeong Show Ends, Do They Get Married?
Curated By : Dishya Sharma

A Business Proposal starring Ahn Hyo-seop, Kim Sejeong, Seol In-ah and Kim Min-kyu came to an end on Tuesday.
One after the other, several K-dramas have come to an end. The season of endings began with Forecasting Love and Weather and Thirty-Nine followed by Twenty-Five Twenty-One. Now, A Business Proposal has also come to end. The fun K-drama, starring Ahn Hyo-seop, Kim Sejeong, Seol In-ah and Kim Min-kyu in the lead, was based on a webtoon of the same name. The K-drama was so popular that even BTS singer Jungkook was a fan of the show. With the Business Proposal finale airing on Tuesday, we are happy to report that both of it has ended on a happy note.
Warning: Spoilers Ahead:
The finale episode of Business Proposal began with the events after Kang Tae-moo (Ahn Hyo-seop) and Shin Ha-ri’s (Kim Sejeong) steamy night. Tae-moo offers to make breakfast for Ha-ri and even drops her home. As they prepare to part for the day, Ha-ri’s parents catch them. After an exchange of words and even a couple of beatings from Ha-ri’s mom, Tae-moo and Ha-ri finally sit face-to-face with Ha-ri’s parents. Tae-moo is interrogated about how and why he fell for Tae-moo. He reveals it was love at first sight and assured her parents that he would be by her side come what may.
The discussion then comes to an end when Jin Young-seo (Seol In-ah) suggests that they focus on their birthday celebrations a little as well. She and her boyfriend Cha Sung-hoon (Kim Min-kyu) change the mood by bringing out the Champagne and the family sits together to drink. After a few drinks, Ha-ri’s father steps out for a smoke and Tae-moo follows. The emotional father tells him that Ha-ri has sacrificed numerous interests such as acting and singing for the sake of the family. He worried that she would have to give up on her love for the family but Tae-moo assures him that it wouldn’t be the case.
After Tae-moo gets Ha-ri’s family’s blessings, it is Ha-ri’s time to win over Tae-moo’s grandfather. In the 10th and 11th episodes, it is seen that Tae-moo’s grandfather is strictly against the relationship. So much so that he asks Ha-ri to break up as well. But when all his tricks fail, he decides to fake an illness and gets admitted to the hospital. Assuming that he could coax his grandson into breaking up on the basis of his illness, he is left in shock when Ha-ri walks to be his caretaker for the night. While she starts winning him over, Tae-moo’s grandfather tries hard to not be smitten by her. Clearly, it fails.
While Tae-moo and Ha-ri were already tackling the issues surrounding their relationship, the doctors inform Tae-moo that his grandfather has been diagnosed with a heart issue and that surgery might not be a good option. Heartbroken, Tae-moo is torn between his love for Ha-ri and his grandfather. He decides to leave for the US for his grandfather’s treatment and tries to convince Ha-ri to join them. Ha-ri refuses, suggesting that his grandfather’s needs should be put first and that he is not approved of her yet, thus accompanying them might only cause inconvenience to his grandfather. Tae-moo agrees, asking her to wait for him as he gets his grandfather treated.
On the other hand, Jin Young-seo learns that her father had lied about his approval of her relationship with Cha Sung-hoon. Heartbroken, she confronts him in his office and resigns from his company. She returns home to Cha Sung-Hoon and tells him everything that unfolded between her and her father. She confesses that while she thought she would feel good, it only hurts her more. Having resigned from the company, Young-seo decides to start a small business of her own. Sung-hoon offers to fund her project, giving her a chance to fulfill her dream.

The show takes a leap of one year, showing that Young-seo and Sung-hoon are still together and madly in love while Ha-ri manages to keep in touch with Tae-moo via video calls. Her parents start worrying about Tae-moo’s return when a scandal breaks out, suggesting that Tae-moo is dating a musician. To make things worse, Tae-moo stops picking up her calls.
An angry Ha-ri decides to take off for New York and confront her boyfriend. Just as she leaves for the US, Tae-moo returns, clarifying that the scandal is merely rumours and he has been waiting to reunite with her. Relived, the couple decides to take a walk when Tae-moo reveals that not only has his grandfather recovered but he has also approved of their relationship.
Under the beautiful cherry blossoms canopy, Tae-moo proposes to Ha-ri. While she teases him that she needs time to think before she says a yes, Tae-moo slips the ring on her finger. In the webtoon, the couple is shown to have tied the knot and have children as well. However, the K-drama ended with the proposal. Given the ending, it is unlikely that the series would return for season 2.

Business Proposal season 1, episode 12 recap – the ending explained
This recap of Business Proposal season 1, episode 12 contains spoilers, including for the Business Proposal ending.
We’ve had our fair share of controversial k-drama endings lately, with Twenty-Five Twenty-One sending fans into a tizzy just this weekend. Luckily, there shouldn’t be any controversy around Business Proposal , which brought its first — and presumably only — season to a lovely conclusion in a closing hour that hit some poignant notes while still managing to elicit a fair few laughs.
Business Proposal season 1, episode 12 recap
It all began the morning after the night before , essentially, with Tae-moo and Ha-ri waking up all lovey-dovey (which contrasts a little with what we see of Seong-hoon and Yeong-seo, but we’ll address all that a bit later.) As happy as they are, though, Ha-ri’s mother is less than thrilled when she sees them together and realizes that Ha-ri lied about where she was spending the night. Her mother goes ballistic and assaults both Ha-ri and Tae-moo, but it leads to a lovely moment in which Tae-moo wins Ha-ri’s family over. They all sit down for drinks to celebrate Young-seo’s birthday — Seong-hoon and Young-seo excitedly watch on as Tae-moo confesses his feelings for Ha-ri, which made me laugh — and bond. Tae-moo has a particularly moving conversation with Ha-ri’s father, who explains how, over the years, she never pursued any of her dreams and ambitions because she knew he wasn’t able to financially support her through them. Now, Ha-ri’s father is worried that Tae-moo’s status will draw comparisons between them that Ha-ri will find upsetting, but Tae-moo reassures him with confidence.
But there’s still Chairman Kang to consider. He remains deeply against Tae-moo and Ha-ri’s relationship, so he decides to feign a medical emergency for attention — however, Tae-moo and Ha-ri overhear the conversation, so are wise to his games. To throw him for a loop, Ha-ri visits him in hospital, not Tae-moo, and she remains there to care for him, which he’s initially furious about. Eventually, though, he begins to soften, and the two start to really get on in a string of funny scenes. It all amounts to a moment in which Chairman Kang hears Ha-ri’s singing voice and feigns being almost deaf in his old age just to encourage her to keep singing, so he can quietly enjoy it.
Meanwhile, Yeong-seo’s father tells Seong-hoon to break up with her immediately, which she overhears. As a result, she resigns from her father’s company and cuts ties with him completely, instead deciding to start her own company. Seong-hoon, ever loyal, will be the first person to invest — providing she can show him a solid business plan, anyway.
Business Proposal ending
The Business Proposal ending ups the stakes a little as it approaches its conclusion. As it turns out, the tests that Chairman Kang requested as part of his ruse actually revealed a legitimate issue with his blood vessels, and since there is no treatment for the condition in Korea, Tae-moo wants to take him to the States. After fishing with him and Seong-hoon — who calls Chairman Kang “grandfather” for the first time — Tae-moo asks Ha-ri to accompany him abroad, but she says no because of the potential rumors it would cause and the fact that Chairman Kang still doesn’t approve of her. I like how Business Proposal mildly subverts the expectation of a break-up here, with the couple deciding to remain together until Tae-moo’s return, which will apparently be sooner rather than later.
As it turns out, it’s a year, during which time Ha-ri has excelled at work, Yeong-seo has set up in business (and is happier than ever with Seong-hoon, who is taking a year off work), and Ha-ri’s mother has become furious at the prospect that Tae-moo won’t return, especially when she sees him on an American talk show. It almost seems like she’s going to be correct in her suspicions when a scandal breaks linking Tae-moo romantically to a cellist named Baek Yun-seo, and upon hearing this, Ha-ri prepares to leave for New York. As she’s about to get into the taxi, though, Tae-moo gets out of it. He has returned home early to surprise her. The scandal is simply false information leaked by the cellist’s parents, who don’t approve of her relationship with an international student. Director Kang is better and will be returning to Korea within the week. But he has given Tae-moo explicit instructions not to return home until he has given Ha-ri an engagement ring. It looks like he approves of her after all.

Not your regular happy ending. Not as good as 2521 story wise. But I enjoyed this series though, it made me laugh
Sorry but to me the ending after just 12 episodes rather than the usual 16 was not satisfying. In fact I was expecting to at least see a wedding scene . . I seriously thought something had happened to one of the actors or writers so the series just stopped.

Check some reasons from K-Drama couples on the appeal of K-Romance!
The Hallyu wave has only grown in strength over the course of these past few years, quickly populating households across the globe. In the case of K-Dramas, they now appear across multiple streaming sites like Netflix, Rakuten Viki, and now Disney+. Whether you're a K-Drama veteran or complete rookie to the scene, there's a show out there for everyone, made even more accessible to the world we live in today.
Looking across social media sites, forums, and online communities, fans list a million reasons why they adore K-Dramas. When it comes to fans, even the actors involved are included as well!
Through YouTube channel, Netflix K-Content, couples from currently airing or recently concluded dramas give their opinion on why the masses love K-Romance.
Check out some of their reasons down below!
1. An Unbreakable Bond Between Two Unlikely Individuals
We've surely seen this before: two individuals with conflicting personalities meet and slowly, but surely, create an unbreakable bond. While it's been used throughout the ages, it's a formula that constantly works. This scenario brings out feelings of utter bliss as the main couple moves forward in their relationship.
2. A Love Story That Transcends Time And Space
Whether they're reuniting as adults or even traveling through time itself, these characters' destiny cannot be severed. No matter what they try or far they go, the red string of fate always leads them back to each other. Scenes of this timeless love is heartwarming, providing moments of sincere and touching nostalgia. Seeing couples go against the test of time is admirable, making you want to root for their eternal success.
3. Humorous Yet Mysterious Romance
Most likely looking back on her drama, " Behind Your Touch ", Han JiMin lists a mysterious romance filled with laughter as one of the appeals of K-Romance. From these types of dramas, you could expect a one-of-a-kind love story that provides both butterflies and a sense of longing to viewers everywhere. Even when the laughter subsides, with the abundant romance you will have many things about the drama to smile about.
4. The Thrill Of Office Romance
As showcased by Girls' Generation’s YoonA and 2PM's JunHo in " King The Land ", there's a certain excitement to office relationships. From secret dates in the stairway to quick kisses behind closed doors, office romances provide a unique jolt of electricity throughout our body and soul. Then, watching their explosion of affection outside of work is absolutely heart-fluttering, becoming the only thing you think about all day long.
5. Potential For The Romance To Occur In Real Life
While K-Dramas are very much cloaked in fiction and fantasy, there are some moments that feel totally real. It's these moments that stand out and make viewers fall in love with the romance happening right in front of their eyes. While unlikely, the potential for these romantic situations to actually come into fruition is still there. With a bit of timing and luck, even an ordinary day can turn into a heartfelt K-Drama romance.

A Shutdown Is Looming. What Comes Next?
Many federal agencies have plans in place to weather a shutdown, but a disruption would still affect critical government services.
- Share full article
By Zach Montague
Reporting from Washington
The White House has begun advising federal agencies to prepare for a government shutdown as Republican lawmakers have shown no signs of progress in negotiations to keep the government funded beyond this week.
The Senate on Wednesday continued debate on a bipartisan stopgap bill to fund the government through Nov. 17, but Speaker Kevin McCarthy was toiling to build support for a right-wing alternative that members of his own party have balked at supporting . That left little chance that Congress could agree on a funding bridge before the midnight deadline on Saturday.
The United States has experienced 21 gaps in government funding since 1976, leading to varying degrees of disruption. Under a worst-case scenario, the White House is wary of a repeat of 2018, the longest and most recent shutdown, which sidelined roughly 800,000 of the federal government’s 2.1 million employees for 34 days.
While much remains uncertain about how inevitable a shutdown may be or how long one may last, the broad contours of how it would play out are well-worn territory in Washington, and most agencies have readied plans for working through the tumult.
What exactly would be shut down?
A government shutdown amounts to a suspension of many government operations until Congress acts to restore funding.
For hundreds of thousands of federal employees, that means either being furloughed while the government is closed, or continuing to work without pay.
For the public, that typically means dealing with interruptions to a variety of government services and facing a range of inconveniences and disruptions to daily life.
In recent days, the White House has spotlighted several government programs that could cause more severe issues if suspended, in particular the nutrition and immunization assistance given out through the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children. If funding lapses, the White House has said nearly seven million women and children could lose critical access to food, and the federal contingency fund to keep the program running could run dry within days.
“If we have a shutdown, WIC shuts down, and that means the nutrition assistance to those moms and young children shuts down,” Tom Vilsack, the agriculture secretary, told reporters on Monday.
Closures of national parks and museums are often one of the most visible impacts of a shutdown for the public, as well. In some cases, they can produce significant losses for the communities that depend on tourism.
Gov. Katie Hobbs of Arizona, for instance, has vowed to draw on revenue from the Arizona Lottery to keep Grand Canyon National Park open. In 2021, the park drew more than 4.5 million visitors to the state, according to the National Park Service.
Even many workers in the private sector are often forced to adjust.
During the most recent shutdown, inspections of chemical factories, power plants and water treatment plants ground to a halt as the Environmental Protection Agency furloughed thousands of workers. The Food and Drug Administration also paused routine food safety inspections of seafood, fruits and vegetables, putting extra pressure on restaurants and grocers.
In addition, many government labs and research projects are frequently closed during prolonged shutdowns, hampering scientific work.
As the deadline to fund the government approaches, the White House has sought to stress the sheer variety of programs and services that would suffer while blaming House Republicans for the standoff.
“A government shutdown could impact everything from food safety to cancer research to Head Start programs for children,” President Biden said on Saturday .
What services would continue?
Many agencies whose employees carry out critical services do not suspend operations.
That includes a large number of federal prosecutors and investigators, postal workers and Transportation Security Administration employees.
Most of those employees will continue to work without pay until funding is restored. In rare cases, some may work in positions that are funded outside the annual appropriations process.
Benefits such as Medicare and Social Security also continue uninterrupted because they are authorized by Congress in separate laws that do not need to be renewed every year. Medical care of veterans also goes on unaffected.
But even in instances where federal workers may stay on the job, planning and operations supporting them can be suspended, making the work harder.
For instance, while air traffic controllers would largely continue to work, training for new staff members would cease, exacerbating shortages .
Who decides which workers are essential?
Having weathered multiple shutdowns already, most agencies have in place detailed contingency plans for determining which employees should keep working.
But those plans can vary widely.
According to its contingency plan , the Department of Health and Human Services plans to retain about 58 percent of its employees during a shutdown, while the Justice Department would direct closer to 85 percent of its employees to continue working.
The determinations for each agency are often based on workers’ roles and how precisely their jobs are deemed “necessary to protect life and property.”
Shutdowns have become so commonplace in Washington that the Office of Management and Budget publishes guidance for federal employees on what to expect when one is approaching.
Do members of Congress still get paid?
In Article I, Section 6 of the Constitution, compensation for members of Congress is differentiated from that of most federal workers.
“The senators and representatives shall receive a compensation for their services, to be ascertained by law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States,” that section reads.
In addition, the language of the 27th Amendment, which prohibits any law “varying the compensation for the services of the senators and representatives” until the next election, is often interpreted as a constitutional requirement that lawmakers be paid on time.
Salaries for members of Congress are funded by a permanent appropriations account that does not require renewal every year.
Like federal agencies, lawmakers also have some limited discretion to keep staff members working in cases where their role is directly tied to human health and safety. This typically applies only to staff members whose work is “required to support Congress with its constitutional responsibilities or those necessary to protect life and property,” according to the Congressional Research Service .
Will furloughed employees eventually be paid?
Furloughed employees will receive back pay once Congress passes and the president signs a new appropriations bill or a continuing resolution, a guarantee enshrined in 2019 when Congress passed the Government Employee Fair Treatment Act .
Employees who worked overtime or earned other premium pay can typically also claim those extra wages once the shutdown ends.
For contractors, including many cleaners, maintenance workers and cafeteria workers, however, the situation is more precarious.
Federal contractors are not guaranteed back pay under the 2019 law, even though some who are deemed essential might still be required to work. In some cases , contractors may be unable to return to their workplace while federal sites are closed.
In most situations in which contract workers are furloughed or unable to work during a shutdown, however, many are entitled to unemployment compensation.

What is an effective business proposal ?
A business proposal is a formal document utilized by a business-oriented company to persuade a potential buyer into purchasing their products or services. It showcases the business and its offerings, alongside the value they can provide to the client. The proposal generally highlights the company's strengths, competitive advantages, and how it can meet the client's needs. A well-written business proposal effectively communicates the company's message and persuades the client to choose them over competitors.
What should be included in a proposal?
In conclusion, the last page of a business proposal plays a crucial role in showcasing the objectives, methodology, and credentials of the company. It is an opportunity to impress the potential client and to emphasize the benefits of the proposed plan. By presenting a clear and convincing call to action, the last page can ultimately persuade the client to accept the proposal and move forward with the project. Therefore, it is important to approach the creation of this final page with a formal tone, carefully crafted language, and a focus on key selling points.
Should you write a business proposal with typos or grammatical errors?
In order to effectively communicate a professional and competent image, it is essential to proofread your business proposal for spelling and grammar errors. Furthermore, it is crucial to tailor your proposal to the needs and concerns of your potential buyer by highlighting their pain points. Even though it is important to present information clearly and concisely, it is also acceptable to incorporate design elements and creativity to make your proposal stand out.
How to write a successful business proposal?
To ensure a successful business proposal, it is essential to invest time in researching and understanding the audience and their business. Prior knowledge of the recipient's background, including previous roles and areas of expertise, can help tailor the proposal to the appropriate level of technical detail. This valuable information enables the presenter to showcase their solution effectively and demonstrate a clear understanding of the recipient's needs. Taking these steps will increase the likelihood of achieving a successful outcome.
What happens after you send a business proposal?
After submitting a business proposal document, it is common to be invited to present the proposal in person. This presentation is an opportunity for prospective clients to connect with the proposal on a personal level and see the people behind the documents and spreadsheets. Effective presentations can make or break a business proposal, and therefore it is important to prepare thoroughly in order to deliver a successful presentation. This guide offers comprehensive advice on how to present a business proposal, ensuring that you are well-equipped to impress potential clients and secure the deal.
Do you need an in-person presentation for a business proposal?
The process of presenting a business proposal can be a challenging and time-consuming task. It often involves an in-person meeting to discuss the proposal document in detail and address any questions or concerns the client may have. This final presentation can be crucial in closing a deal with a potential client. Therefore, it is essential to prepare thoroughly and deliver a professional and persuasive presentation that showcases the value of the proposed solution. In this complete guide, we will cover the key steps to help you effectively present your business proposal and win over your audience.
Should you give a Q&A at the end of a business proposal?
To ensure a successful business proposal presentation, it is important to have an effective Q&A session at the end. Practicing with a sample audience beforehand can help prepare for potential questions and provide the opportunity to incorporate relevant answers into the presentation. This will help ensure a seamless and professional delivery of the proposal.
Can a well-written business proposal increase the chances of a happy ending?
In essence, a well-crafted proposal has two major advantages. Firstly, it ensures that the project details are well-defined, thus preventing underestimation and unnecessary work. It does this by clearly stating the scope of work, timelines, costs, and exclusions. Secondly, a well-thought-out proposal demonstrates foresight, which is crucial in building trust with potential clients. When prospects see that you have considered the project details thoroughly, they are more likely to have confidence in your ability to deliver on the job. Ultimately, this improves the chances of winning their business.
Why do you need a business proposal?
In today's world, sales are crucial for the success and survival of businesses. To secure potential clients, a well-written business proposal is essential. A business proposal can make or break a deal, and as noted by successful entrepreneur Mark Cuban, "sales cure all." Therefore, it is crucial to learn how to write comprehensive and engaging business proposals to increase the chances of winning clients.
How to write a business proposal in 2021?
There is an article provides a comprehensive guide for writing a business proposal in 2021. The author outlines six essential steps to create an effective proposal and offers 15 free templates to choose from. The key to a successful proposal is to clearly outline the deliverables and their respective costs, while providing a detailed description for each item. The article emphasizes the importance of understanding the client's needs and tailoring the proposal to meet specific requirements. Overall, this section is a valuable resource for anyone looking to write a professional business proposal.
How to write a good proposal?
In writing a business proposal that is effective in winning new clients, it is essential to begin by expressing appreciation for the opportunity to pitch services and conveying a keen interest in taking on the project. Such protocol demonstrates courtesy, enthusiasm, and commitment, which are critical in influencing clients to consider the proposal.
How hard is it to write a business proposal?
There is an article provides a step-by-step guide for writing a business proposal. It highlights that while it may seem intimidating at first, with practice, certain sections will become more natural to write. The article also emphasizes the importance of gathering data about what works and what doesn't in order to continually improve the quality of proposals. Overall, this guide offers valuable insights for businesses looking to enhance their proposal writing skills.
Are business proposals the same as business plans?
In formal language, it is important to understand that business proposals and business plans are not the same. While a business plan may aim to attract investors, a proposal seeks to sell a product or service to new customers. The primary goal of a proposal is to persuade potential clients to choose your offering, rather than investing in your company. HubSpot provides examples and templates for crafting a successful business proposal.
Should a business proposal be sent electronically?
In modern business, sending electronic proposals is more convenient than receiving thick envelopes in the mail. While emailing proposals created with a word processor is possible, utilizing platforms like PandaDoc is a better option. Writing a proposal may seem daunting, but with the right approach and tools, it can be easy and effective. This section outlines ten steps and provides template examples for crafting a successful proposal.
What are effective communication skills?
Effective communication skills are crucial in the business world as they facilitate productive communication between employees. However, simply communicating in the same way repeatedly does not guarantee success. Instead, effective communication skills are necessary to ensure efficient and effective communication in the workplace. Investing in developing these skills can positively impact business outcomes and improve employee relationships.
Can a business proposal be tailored to a specific business?
Although business proposals may appear generic and brochure-like, they can be customized to suit the specific needs of a particular business. Through careful planning and demonstration of specialized knowledge, a business proposal can be transformed into an effective sales message tailored to the specific requirements of the organization. This level of customization may require additional time and effort, but it can considerably enhance the impact of the proposal.
What role do key decision-makers play in determining the outcome of a business proposal?
The decision maker carefully evaluates all the available alternatives before making a choice. This involves an in-depth analysis of the potential outcomes of each option. The decision maker takes into account how well each scenario addresses the issue at hand and aligns with the organization's broader objectives. This thorough assessment is crucial in identifying the most effective solution that will have the greatest impact on the organization.
How important is a decision maker?
In organizational decision making, it is crucial to design a system that aligns decision making and makes it routine. While the decision maker is important, the complexity of making decisions between separate organizations on different continents can scuttle the best strategy. Therefore, clear decision roles are necessary to enhance organizational performance. This section emphasizes the importance of aligning decision making within an organization and developing a system that supports it.
What is the final role in a decision-making process?
In the decision-making process, the final role is carried out by those responsible for implementing the decision. This role is critical as it ensures the timely and effective execution of the decision. It is often observed that a good decision, when executed promptly, yields better results than a brilliant decision implemented slowly or poorly. Therefore, the success of a decision depends greatly on the individuals tasked with executing it. The importance of decision roles cannot be overstated, as they enhance the organizational performance by facilitating efficient decision-making processes.
What is a decision making process?
The decision-making process is a systematic approach used to gather relevant information, evaluate alternatives, and arrive at a final choice. It involves a series of steps to ensure that the appropriate decision is made based on the situation. This process includes identifying the problem, setting objectives, generating possible solutions, evaluating and selecting the best option, implementing the chosen alternative, and monitoring and evaluating the outcome. An effective decision-making process helps individuals and organizations make sound decisions that meet their goals and objectives.
How does a company rely on its leaders to make effective decisions?
In today's unstable economic climate, the ability of leaders to make effective business decisions is vital for a company's growth and success. Decision-makers play a crucial role in determining the best solutions for their organization, whether it be in strategically managing resources, innovating new products and services or navigating challenging economic conditions. It is important to identify the different types of decision-makers in an organization in order to understand how they approach different problems and make decisions to achieve their goals.
Are there any techniques or strategies that can be used to ensure a business proposal has a happy ending?
The process of creating a proposal can be a challenging task that requires clear and concise writing, a compelling argument, and careful consideration of potential obstacles. It is important to communicate your personality and brand through the proposal while avoiding overselling and boilerplate language. Effective use of graphics can enhance the presentation, but it is crucial to keep the evaluator's perspective in mind at all times. Attention to detail, catching typos, and presenting a well-structured proposal can help increase the chances of success.
How to write an executive summary for a business proposal?
The executive summary serves a critical role in various documents, including annual reports, project plans, and marketing plans. It provides a brief but concise overview of the entire contents of the document. As such, it is crucial to create a clear and easy-to-read business proposal outline that emphasizes the value proposition. A well-crafted executive summary can grab the attention of potential investors or clients and encourage them to read further.
How do you make a good proposal?
There is an article provides valuable insights on how to optimize the time spent with clients during business proposal presentations. It emphasizes the importance of considering the busy schedules and priorities of clients and suggests arriving early as a way to respect their time. The article also offers additional tips to make presentations more effective and engaging. By following these guidelines, businesses can improve their chances of winning new clients and securing successful partnerships.
What happens when both parties are satisfied with the terms and conditions of a business proposal?
Achieving a win-win negotiation is a crucial objective for astute business negotiators. Such an outcome offers mutual satisfaction to both parties, paving the way for a fruitful and durable partnership. The ability to reach such an agreement requires adept negotiation skills and a deep understanding of the interests and needs of both sides. A win-win negotiation proves to be an integral factor in ensuring the success of future business dealings.
What happens if one party changes the terms of an offer?
In the process of creating a legally binding document, if one party alters the terms or conditions initially proposed, the offer becomes a counteroffer. At this point, negotiations will ensue, and the parties can modify any condition or term of the offer until a meeting of the minds is reached, signifying an agreement. Upon reaching a consensus, a contract can be duly executed.
What are terms and conditions in a contract?
Terms and conditions are a vital aspect of any legal contract as they stipulate the rights and responsibilities of the involved parties. These terms are drafted in accordance with relevant contract laws, including local, state, and federal statutes. They establish critical parameters that businesses and individuals must adhere to. Understanding and agreeing to these terms is essential before entering into any agreement, ensuring both parties are aware of their obligations and responsibilities.
How do you write a Business Terms & Conditions Document?
In writing terms and conditions, it is essential to ensure that they are clear, fair, and professional to promote confidence between businesses and clients. A well-written set of terms and conditions assures both parties that their interests are protected. It is recommended to start by highlighting the product or service, followed by a comprehensive list of the terms and conditions. Properly written terms and conditions protect the business from legal issues and promote trust with clients.
Do additional terms become part of a contract?
According to section 2-207 of the Uniform Commercial Code, any additional terms proposed by one party in a contract are considered part of the agreement between merchants, unless the initial offer specifically limits acceptance to the terms of the offer. This section pertains to the inclusion of new terms in acceptance or confirmation of a contract.
Can external factors, such as market conditions, have an impact on whether a business proposal has a happy ending?
In business, external factors refer to the influences from outside a company that can significantly affect its success. These factors can be positive, such as an increase in demand for its products or services, or negative, such as changes in government regulations or economic instability. While companies cannot control external factors, they can respond to them by making strategic decisions and adjustments. Understanding and effectively managing external factors is crucial to maintaining a successful business.
How do external factors affect business marketing efforts?
In today's business environment, external factors can significantly impact companies' marketing efforts, whether they are launching new products or maintaining their existing market share. These uncontrollable external factors present a significant challenge to businesses, but those that demonstrate steadfastness, agility, and responsiveness to the changing marketing environment are more likely to succeed. Therefore, it is essential for companies to understand the external factors that could affect their operations and develop plans to tackle them effectively.
Why is it difficult to reduce external risks?
External risks are events that a company has no control over or cannot predict with certainty, making them difficult to mitigate. Economic, natural, and political factors are the three main types of external risks that a company may face. To reduce internal and external business risk, companies can implement risk management strategies such as diversifying their products or services, developing contingency plans, and purchasing insurance policies. It is important for companies to identify and address potential risks as part of their overall business planning to ensure long-term success and sustainability.
What factors affect how successful a business is?
External influences are factors that can greatly affect the success of a business, but are beyond the control of the business itself. These factors can be grouped into various categories and can pose significant challenges to a business's operations, marketing strategy, and profitability. External influences can include economic conditions, sociocultural trends, political and legal factors, competition, technology advancements, and more. Understanding and effectively responding to these external factors is crucial for a business to succeed in a highly competitive market.
How do economic conditions affect marketing efforts?
The health of an economy is significantly impacted by external factors known as economic conditions. These factors, which include inflation, interest rates, exchange rates, and Gross Domestic Product (GDP), play a crucial role in determining the success of a business and its marketing efforts. As a result, companies must be aware of how changes in economic conditions can affect their operations and plan accordingly. Despite being uncontrollable, businesses must adapt to economic conditions to maintain competitiveness and achieve long-term success.
What is a business proposal?
A business proposal is a formal document prepared by a supplier to present a potential client with a proposed solution to their specific needs. The purpose of the proposal is to persuade the client to accept the proposed solution and engage the supplier for the project. Business proposals are commonly used by service-based and B2B Saas businesses as a sales tool.

Identifying early warning signs can help mitigate project risks and improve project outcomes.
What is a good introduction for a business proposal?
A business proposal is a document that introduces a company and outlines how it can provide value to another business. This vital step in the sales process should not be underestimated, as potential clients spend over a third of their time reading this section. The introduction must be concise and informative, stating what the company does, its unique selling points, and how it can meet the needs of the client. It is crucial to avoid making it all about the proposing company and prioritize the client's interests instead. A well-crafted business proposal can be the key to securing new business and building lasting relationships.
