The two hit K-dramas, Business proposition and Crazy Love, have met their end. Both dramas revolve around a love story between a powerful and wealthy CEO and his employee. Fans swooned over Netflix’s perfect finale Business proposition because it ended on a positive note. Disney+ Crazy Love also ended on good terms and a marriage. But fans can’t help but laugh at the startlingly identical parallels between the two proposal scenes.
[Warning: This article contains spoilers for Crazy Love and Business Proposal.]
‘Business Proposal’ and ‘Crazy Love’ both ended with the main couples living happily ever after
April’s K-Drama Business proposition starred Ahn Hyo-seop and Kim Se-jeong in the lead roles. Ahn played the role of Kang Tae-moo, the CEO of GO Foods. His employee, Shin Ha-ri, is played by Kim. Ha-ri poses as her friend for a blind date and learns the date is with her boss. She didn’t expect Tae-moo to be adamant about marriage and get caught up in a relationship based on lies.
Their tumultuous deal to pose as a couple becomes true love. The two characters are still in love at the end, and Tae-moo pops the question. Crazy Love has a similar idea to Business proposition. Noh Go-jin, played by Kim Jae-wook, is the CEO of GOTOP educations. He is ruthless, self-centered, and notorious for treating his secretary badly.
Lee Shin-ah, played by police university Krystal Jung, managed not quite despite Go-jin’s horrible behavior. Her life changes when she is diagnosed with cancer. She decides to get revenge on her boss when he has an accident and gets amnesiac.
Shin-ah pretends to be her fiancé and ruins her life. But along the way, Go-jin realizes the mistake of his path and begins to fall in love with her. At the end of the K-drama, they find true love and also get a fairy tale proposal scene. But fans laughed at the similarity of the proposal scene in Business proposition and Crazy Love were.

Ha-ri and Tae-moo are in love, and when he returns from the United States, he has made up his mind. Tae-moo pops the question while walking through a park covered in cherry blossoms. He presents her with a silver heart-shaped diamond ring with a matching wedding band.
Crazy Love took the proposal scene and copied it almost exactly. Go-jin and Shin-ah have survived the worst and are more in love than ever. While walking through the cherry blossoms after Shin-ah’s first day as a teacher, Go-jin pops the question. Behold, he pulls out the same set of diamond rings that Tae-moo used in Business proposition.
Fans were quick to notice the parallels between the two K-dramas and had a good laugh. Some fans enjoyed the cinematic parallels, with one fan on Twitter commenting, “ok with I didn’t expect that!!! My two comfort kdramas have the same ending too the ring with!!!” Another fan was puzzled by the similarities and commented“I’M CONFUSED @BUSINESS PROPOSAL @CRAZY LOVE IS THERE A UNIVERSAL KDRAMA ENGAGEMENT RING???”
While some fans agreed with the parallels, another fan on Twitter felt disappointed “#CrazyLove I’ll tell you right now. I hate plagiarism. Was disappointed. Because this scene is a copy of the final scene of the #BusinessProposal Beautiful. Yes. But it’s a copy. Another fan laughed at commenting on the joke about asking someone to copy someone’s homework and responding with “Yeah, but don’t make it too obvious.”
K-dramas are sometimes focused on propaganda and selling products

While K-dramas are on the rise among fans, they’ve always had a common denominator. K-dramas have a long-standing rule of including incredibly obvious product placement and propaganda. During Jirisan’s initial airing, fans were unhappy with the unrealistic use of the products. But it’s all part of the structure of the company.
Crazy Lovee and Business proposition unfortunately is no different and used the proposal scene to their advantage. Many K-dramas are known for their jewelry product placement on their actresses. For both K-dramas, it was the same engagement ring.
The ring is from a brand called Fred, and it’s part of their Pretty Woman collection. Fans can see the ring for themselves on their website. According to the details, the ring is 23 carat platinum, 0.5 carat diamond and has a ruby inside the band. It sells for €7,700, or just over $8K.
