Arden Cho (Teen Wolf) stars in Partner Track, a new series for Netflix. The series shows what it is like to not only be a woman in a male-dominated field, but also a first-generation Korean-American whose family just doesn’t understand. Throw in some microaggressions and a love triangle, and you get a fun fall series worth a watch!

Ingrid Yun, a 1st generation Korean American and the first lawyer in her family, experiences the trials and tribulations of excelling at the prestigious (but old school) law firm, Parsons Valentine. With the support of her friends, she battles through workplace challenges to break through the glass ceiling on her path to become partner. But will her drive and ambition leave room for love?

The Partner Track Official Synopsis


Partner Track is based on a book by Helen Wan and is very much like Sex in the City meets Emily In Paris. However, when it comes to Emily in Paris, I have a love/hate relationship with it for a multitude of reasons. Mainly because nothing happens. However, when it comes to Partner Track EVERYTHING happens. Every episode moves the story along and you never feel like there’s a filler episode. 

Cho stars as Ingrid Yun, a bad bitch trying to make partner at her prestigious law firm. She also just happens to be dating New York City’s most eligible bachelor, Nick Laren (Rob Heaps). However, when an ex-fling, Jeff Murphy (Dominic Sherwood) from many years ago joins her law firm, Ingrid needs to focus not only on her career but her love life. 

This series could have easily had Ingrid throw out her career choices for love, but it doesn’t. Instead, the series focuses on the struggles of being a late 20s/early 30s transition time in your career, where if you don’t get promoted what have you been doing with your life?! It’s very relatable.

Partner Track also does a great job of showing what it’s like being a woman of color working in a male-dominated field. Even though some like to pretend microaggressions aren’t a thing, I promise that they are. The show does a great job of showing what these moments are and how to deal with them.

While the love triangle isn’t completely necessary for the series, it does add to the fun. Personally, I’m not on any team. Both Nick and Jeff are looking for a woman to support them and be their sidekick. Ingrid is anything but! So, I don’t want her with any of them. 


My biggest issue with the series is that while I thought the show was really well paced overall… the ending felt rushed and thrown together. That being said, I will be needing a season 2 after that wild cliffhanger! Netflix! Don’t let me down.
