It’s not easy to be the boss.
On Wednesday, July 21, Netflix released the first trailer for their upcoming comedy-drama, The chair, featuring the one and only Sandra Oh. And, as the first glance proves, dream jobs aren’t always what they seem.
Specifically, Oh, as Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim, inherits a situation full of scandals while becoming the first woman to chair the English department at (fictional) Pembroke University. To make matters worse, it appears that the work of Dr Kim, Professor Bill Dobson (Jay duplass), is at the heart of the drama.
While it is not known what Professor Dobson did, his actions certainly sparked a disastrous chain of events with students protesting outside the college. For this reason, Dr Kim seems in conflict over his loyalty to Professor Dobson.

Unfortunately, her peers don’t seem to believe her as they are later heard saying, “Everyone knows she’s in love with him.
