Let’s Get to Work
When you start working at Mnet Corporations, you make a lot of new friends. However, Hwang Minhyun, Mr. Cold Guy™, doesn’t seem all that interested in melting his ice for some new employee.
- kind of lengthy but whatever
- office au
- for anon: “Minhyun is your new cold (but sweet) work colleague”
The boss of Mnet Corporation, Kwon Boa, gave you a reassuring smile as you did your best to straighten your clothing in the reflection of the elevator that sent you to your office. You were dressed in the most professional clothing you owned—an off-the-shoulder striped blue shirt, a pencil skirt and chunky heels. Boa had assured you that your attire was okay, given your slightly unconventional role. In your arms was your box of things you would be putting on your desk. So far, you had a brand new pack of pencils and a little bobblehead cat.
You were Mnet Corporation’s very first Social Media Manager, hired as an entirely new branch of the company’s corporate team.
“Are you nervous?” Boa asked, giving you a gentle smile. While she was the boss, she had also seemed very kind and polite towards you when you interviewed for the job a few months ago.
“Y-yes,” you stammered, trying to clear your throat in embarrassment, “I’ve never worked in this type of position before.”
“Well, just roll your shoulders back and keep your chin up,” she said, giving you a smile, “I’m confident that you’ll do well.” The elevator dinged, signaling that it was time to get off. Boa led you down the hall and opened the door to the office rooms.
“Good afternoon, president!” Everyone chorused, bowing to Boa. Boa smiled generously and bowed back, and you hurried to do the same.
“Everyone, this is (Y/L/N) (Y/N), she will be our first Social Media Manager,” Boa gestured towards you, and you took that as an invitation to introduce yourself.
After bowing again, you did your best to introduce yourself without stammering or mumbling. “Hello, my name is (Y/L/N) (Y/N)… uh… I’m fairly skilled with computers and such so if anyone runs into any such troubles, I may be able to help. I’m originally from Gwangju, but I moved to Seoul for university. I graduated from university a couple months ago, and now I’m here. I hope we all get along.”
“Wah, straight out of university?” you heard someone comment.
“An ace, just like our Minhyunnie~”
“Now, if everyone would go around and introduce yourselves?”
The name and faces all went by so quickly, it was hard for you to keep track. There was Park Jihoon, Kang Daniel and Kim Samuel of accounting, Jeon Somi, Kim Chungha, Ong Seungwoo and Bae Jinyoung in sales, and a couple other people whose names you missed.
“Greetings,” the last person bowed low, “Hwang Minhyun, marketing. I hope we get along well.” You smiled at Hwang Minhyun, instantly impressed by his good looks and charm. As Boa continued to talk, giving everyone a quick update about the company’s progress, Minhyun nodded, smiling this little half-grin that you couldn’t look away from.
