The Plot of The chair?

The Chair's narrative is mainly unknown; however, it has been revealed that Ji-Yoon (Oh) is the first female Chair of the English department at Pembroke University, and she is expected to succeed. Professor Joan Hambling (Taylor), a humorous, straight-talking English professor in the department, is a personal friend and confidante of hers. 

While this gives away very little, we can be sure that the series will examine Ji-struggles Yoon's as the first Asian woman to hold such a high position in that area, as well as providing plenty of humorous moments along the way.
