Can corporate politics turn a bad person into a good person? Kim Sung Ryong (Nam Goong Min) is a skilled accountant who works for gangsters. He makes his way into a company called TQ Group as a middle manager in the accounting department with the intention of embezzling money from the company. As he contends with hot-shot accountant Yoon Ha Kyung (Nam Sang Mi), financial prodigy Seo Yool (Lee Joon Ho) and peppy intern Hong Ga Eun (Jung Hye Sung), Sung Ryong finds himself embroiled in office politics and notices other shenanigans by those in power that threaten to bring down the company. Sung Ryong slowly comes to realize that he’d rather fight against corporate corruption and fight for employees’ rights than complete the mission he originally came to do. Can he succeed at his new objective against all odds?

    I wasn’t sure what to expect. So I’ve laughed enough to be more than pleasantly amused through the first 2 episodes. I am looking forward to episode 3&4 this week.

    Looks like we have a ‘gangster comedy’ here. Always good for a few laughs. I also see we have the recently married Nam Sang Mi giving a ‘tough cookie’ performance. I always find her entertaining. Nam Goon Min also looks well cast for his role. I may watch more of this.

    Honestly at first this drama was not on my watchlist but then i saw some of funny scene and try to watch it full. All of the cast was soooo comical and perfect for their role. Sung Ryong and Seo Yool hate but need each other relationship 😀 And Sung Ryong and Ha Kyung i don’t know how to label them but i know i must not expect romance in this comedy office drama. Recomended.

    I cant say this drama good though it is not bad either. However, it cant be compared with Saimdong, Light Story. I can’t understand why the Korean audiences prefer this one. Maybe they like watching comedy more?

    dramalady Says:

    The bad guy in the drama has a baby face. He doesn’t look like a bad guy. Nam Goong Min is a good actor. He can be very lively in a comedy. I only don’t like his dyed hair in this drama.

    Hannah Says:
