“Unlock My Boss” has unveiled a chaotic new teaser!
Based on the original webtoon of the same name, ENA’s “Unlock My Boss” is a unique comedy thriller that depicts the story of Park In Sung (Chae Jong Hyeop), an unemployed job-seeker whose life changes after he picks up a smartphone that speaks to him and gives him orders. This smartphone has trapped the soul of Kim Sun Joo (Park Sung Woong), the CEO of a big IT corporation called Silver Lining, and the story follows Park In Sung’s journey to infiltrate the CEO’s office to find the truth. On Park In Sung’s journey, he’s joined by secretary Jeong Se Yeon (Seo Eun Soo), who is more robot-like than AI technology itself.
The newly released main teaser begins with the mysterious incident that causes Kim Sun Joo’s soul to become trapped inside his phone. Late at night, Kim Sun Joo is happily on his way to pick up his daughter when an unusual sight leads him to pull over and investigate. However, the genius CEO is suddenly nowhere to be seen and his lone phone randomly unlocks itself.
The phone ends up being found by the innocent Park In Sung who has no idea how drastically his life is about to change. After Park In Sung charges the lost phone, Kim Sun Joo’s soul calls out, “I see you’ve charged it.” When Park In Sung worriedly asks who he is, the CEO replies, “I’m CEO Kim Sun Joo of Silver Lining.” After sending a preliminary payment of 100 million won (approximately $73,600), Kim Sun Joo offers, “If you listen to my request, I can give you all of 1 billion won [approximately $735,500]. Instead of me, Kim Sun Joo, please become the CEO of Silver Lining.”
Although still in disbelief, Park In Sung dives deeper and deeper into the mystery as Kim Sun Joo explains, “We have to find out the truth in order to know why I’ve become like this.” The dramatic teaser ends with the statement, “There’s no time.”
