“Business Proposal” Characters Kang Tae Moo And Lee Min Woo Might Be Rivals, But The Actors Have A Surprising History

It’s all to do with… an idol career?!

There might only be a few more episodes left of SBS‘s newest K-Drama Business Proposal, but netizens are far from over-fangirling about the characters, storyline, and actors.

In particular, one duo from the K-Drama recently caught the attention of netizens after realizing their history are more intertwined than expected.

Although most of the characters get on and netizens love them interacting, two have showcased a much colder relationship, and it’s Kang Tae Moo and Ha Ri’s friend and former crush Lee Min Woo, played by Song Won Seok

The two might have started on respectful terms after Lee Min Woo’s famous ravioli was picked as the company’s new star item. However, things turned sour when Lee Min Woo started to realize his feelings for Ha Ri at the same time Kang Tae Moo made his feelings known. In particular, there was a battle of egos during a fishing trip…

Even though Kang Tae Moo and Lee Min Woo will never be the best of friends, the complete opposite could be said for the actors Ahn Hyo Seop and Song Won Seok.

Since the show started, netizens have discovered that Ahn Hyo Seop could’ve debuted with GOT7 after joining JYP Entertainment, but it didn’t go through because of his height.

Yet, after leaving JYP, Ahn Hyo Seop didn’t fully give up on his dream to be an idol. He later joined Starhaus Entertainment and debuted in the project group One O One, where he collaborated with three other actors… including none other than Song Won Seok.

Even in shots with just the two of them, Ahn Hyo Seop and Song Won Seok have chemistry so different from their Business Proposal characters.

The group released their first single titled “Love You” in October 2015 and a few other tracks before eventually disbanding in early 2019.

After the group didn’t debut, Ahn Hyo Seop and Song Won Seok didn’t just go separate ways. In 2017, the duo played brothers in the popular KBS K-Drama My Father Is Strange and the visuals definitely cemented some familial similarities.

More recently, in 2021, the duo starred in the blockbuster The Lovers of the Red Sky.

In the show, Ahn Hyo Seop plays a man who lost his sight due and lives a new life as an astrologer while preparing to take revenge on the royal family, who are responsible for making his life miserable. Song Won Seok plays his bodyguard and is there to protect Ahn Hyo Seop’s character.

Even though Kang Tae Moo and Min Woo might never be friends, hopefully, netizens can see the friendship between Ahn Hyo Seop and Song Won Seok more in the future. Who knows, maybe their could be a secret OST from the two released.
