Broadcast: August 3, 2011 ~ September 29, 2011
No Eun-Sul finally gets a job as a professional secretary at a large conglomerate after struggling with unemployment, only to fall in love with her boss, Cha Ji Heon, the immature youngest son of a chaebol family.
No Eun-Sul (Choi Gang-Hee) applies for job after job, but is passed over because she graduated from a third-rate university and doesn't possess a sparkling resume. In high school, Eun-Sul was notorious for fighting and fighting well. Then one day she decided to live her life the right way. She started to study hard and was able to pass a university entrance exam, even though the university wasn't prestigious. While attending university, Eun-Sul continued to study hard and also worked part-time jobs to pay her tuition fees. Now out in the real world, Eun-Sul finds landing a job extremely difficult.
One day, Eun-Sul receives a phone call and is informed she got the job. Eun-Sul becomes elated, but unbeknownst to her, the company that hired her is a loan sharking firm.
Ji-Hun (Ji Sung) seems to be the perfect guy. He is from a wealthy family, is physically attractive, and works for the company which his father runs. But actually, Ji-Hun isn't interested in the family's company. Ji-Hun is also frightened to speak in front of others and being around strangers. He has ochlophobia - a fear of crowds, as well as agoraphobia - a fear of having a panic attack and embarrassing oneself. Neither his father nor his grandmother (played by legendary veteran actress Kim Young-Ok) know of his condition. Ji-Hun isn't social because of his phobia and doesn't associate with others at the company. He's also a germaphobe, and appears to be developing more neuroses as manifestations of the anxiety he feels over working for his father, whose main style of parenting, and living, is bullying.
Bullying is nothing new to president Cha(Park Yeong-Gyu). His brother's widow, Shin Sook-Hee (Cha Hwa-Yeon), still blames him for her husband's death, due to how hard president Cha made things for the deceased. Though the two of them keep up the appearance of filial love, the only thing they want from each other is to see the other one fail, die, or both. Her son is Moo-Won (Youngwoong Jaejoong), a hard-working and conscientious junior executive in the company who seems only to want the company to do well, and is willing to pick up the slack left by Ji-Hun's failings. However, something about Moo-Won also seems a little too good to be true...

You've never seen a secretary like this! Award-winning actress Choi Gang-Hee makes a delightful return to the small screen in the Korean TV drama series Protect the Boss. Heartthrob Ji Sung (Save the Last Dance for Me) and singer Kim Jae-Joong of pop group JYJ add to the hilarity and star power in this zippy workplace romantic comedy.
Noh Eun-seol (Choi Gang-hee) has no job and no prospects, but she does have a mean punch and an unbeatable spirit. Intrigued by Eun-seol's straight-talking attitude, Cha Mu-won (Kim Jae-Joong) hires her as the new secretary for his cousin Cha Ji-heon (Ji Sung), the reluctant heir apparent of their family corporation. Eun-seol has to keep her eccentric, immature, and misunderstood boss in line, which is no easy task - especially when Ji-heon starts to fall for her ... which rekindles a long-standing rivalry with Mu-won.
Cha Ji Heon (Ji Sung) is an incredibly immature young man and a director of DN Group, as well as the youngest son of the chairman (Park Young Kyu). Noh Eun Seol (Choi Kang Hee) a tough and courageous girl, was once a problematic girl in school and has a poor academic background. She is struggling to find a full time work. On the other side, there is another mature and hardworking young boss, Cha Moo Won (Kim Jae Joong) who is seemingly perfect but also has his own problems to deal with. After telling Director Cha Moo Won , who is Ji Heon's cousin, a piece of her mind, at an interview at DN Group, she is hired as a secretary to Ji Heon. Determined not to be fired from her first professional job, Eun Seol works diligently putting up with Ji Heon's childishness and helping him to prove that he can be a successor of DN Group. Through their working relationship, he begins to deal with the secrets of his own and falls for her.
