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?

  9. 9 : tae Says:

    NGM so handsome

  10. 10 : flo Says:

    I think nam go min doesnt suit for comedy role…he more perfect being a villain
    sorry guys this just my opinion…

  11. 11 : Shannon Says:

    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.

  12. 12 : JungleBoy Says:

    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.

  13. 13 : Era Says:

    Daebak…. its really funny yet realistic
    And plus its Nam Gong Min who make this drama really alive and entertaining
    If Chief kim is not him, i doubt it….

  14. 14 : KdramaFAN Says:

    Love this series! very entertaining and it’s funny…highly recommended

  15. 15 : uslu92 Says:

    Keren bangt ni drama ada lucunya,ada seriusnya,dan tegang bgt!!!
    Keren pokoknya chief kim super super pinterrrrr nipu wkwkwkwk

  18. 18 : Dy.K Says:

    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.

  19. 19 : dramalady Says:

    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?

  20. 20 : 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.

  21. 21 : Hannah Says:

    I didn’t plan to watch this drama at first but my friend convinced me that this drama is really funny. Tried to watch the first ep last two days and finished the entire 6 episodes yesterday. It’s damn funny!!! I love chief Kim! Chief Kim janngg!! 👍🏻👍🏻

  22. 22 : Hannah Says:

    Chief Kim is like my happy pill every week. After a stressed day, watching this drama can make me happy before I go to sleep. It’s very funny and entertaining.

  23. 23 : Dy.K Says:

    Omo..omo..writer-nim how could you make my hope flutter. Why in the ep 9 you make me see sparks from Sung Ryong and Ha Kyung…don’t make me imagine something that in the end just another loose end. Nomu nomu chua!

  24. 24 : sa_grant Says:

    great casting mixed in with great writing!

  25. 25 : Misu Tira Says:

    Awesome and very funny drama especially on episode 7 and 8. Nam Goong Min is perfect for this drama. At first the drama kind of dull and it getting better.
    Nam Sand Mi and Nam Goong Min, both of you rock……..
    I laugh so much in this drama………… Great writer for this drama…..

  26. 26 : -Autumn- Says:

    Initially I planned to skip this drama and have doubt on it. When I saw the ratings and good feedback, okay, I decided to give it a go. But to my surprise, I am hooked to the drama. It is so humorous especially Nam Goong Min’s character as Chief Kim. His expression and acting are really portray the Chief Kim’s characteristic and personality. I laughed out loud actually. The drama is so entertaining. The supporting roles are good and funny also.

    Recommended to watch!

  27. 27 : Septi Says:

    this drama success change Nam Goong Min character. From evil character in the previous drama to very funny character. I’m laugh so hard when I’m watching this.

  28. 28 : sa_grant Says:

    superb! great drama! highly recommended! !

  29. 29 : Tina Says:

    Acting of Joon Ho, Nam Goong Min and Dong Ha (chairman`s son) is excellent!!! They make their roles out of the ordinary, very intresting and so funny!

  30. 30 : IKrian Says:

    Love this series! Hilarious and all the characters are entertaining…never a dull moment! Even the bad guy is lovable…

  31. 31 : putri andini Says:

    I watch after my nephew keep laughing watching this drama. He enjoys it so much. So do I. ha ha 😛

  33. 33 : AnCe Says:

    i’m glad i started this drama…i thought it would be boring, but it just proved me wrong…

  34. 34 : Jen Says:

    Dong Ha real name is Park Myung-Suk ? He loooks cute

  35. 35 : USA Says:

    Great writing! Awesome acting. Good comedy. Love the way this Director moves the storyline each week, and I hope he doesn’t slow down if more episodes are added later.

  36. 36 : vdizpk Says:

    Acting of Joon Ho, Nam Goong Min and Dong Ha (chairman`s son) is excellent!!! They make their roles out of the ordinary, very intresting and so funny!

  37. 37 : Ann Says:

    We need people like “Chief Kim” nowadays…5* star rating to this drama.

  38. 38 : CoolBeans Says:

    Nam Goong Min is the glue to this comedy. He is well balanced by the dead pan face of Nam Sang Mi, his costar. My favorite new actor in this is 2PM’s Lee John Ho who looks like he has many years of acting behind him when he is really new to the game. He is very believable as the corrupt former prosecutor and the sometimes enemy of our hero Nam Goong Min. They share bromance moments.

    Dong Has plays the son of the CEO who was given too much money and not enough quality with father plus a pampering mother. Dong Ha was my fave in Glorious Day. I love his slightly neurotic yet smart when allowed to grow style. Good drama.

  39. 39 : lara Says:

    chief kim ❤❤❤ this drama is funnyy !!!! you really going to have pain in your stomache with all that laugh 🙂

  40. 40 : Tina Says:

    I think Seo Yool came in TQ Group not as financial director, but as prosecutor. He wants to catch them and have nedeed evidentiary materials. And now he is working under cover…

  41. 41 : mona Says:

    Chief Kim’s really funny and brilliant. Seo Yul’s so handsome. Btw his lips r so sexy 😀

    This drama comedy’s just perfect for me!!

  42. 42 : Jessie Says:

    The spoilt-brat, Myung-suk is turning into a caring and mature guy. He role in here is really cute and now, he like a puppy to Chief Kim. Chief Kim really a good guardian to him. Never regret, he works under Chief Kim.

  43. 43 : tigerb Says:

    this is an engaging series to watch, funny and no boring scene at all (just finished ep. 8)! glad to have started watching it.

  44. 44 : Winnie Says:

    Nam Goong Min’s role is so funny and perfect acting. The story is good, just needs less corporate/company stuff and more personal stuff and it will be a 10 out of 10 series. But overall many laughs involved hehe

  45. 45 : tigerb Says:

    i totally enjoyed this series, almost no romance to waylay the plot, people given the second chance to improve their lives, and the culprits punished. a very good watch!

  49. 49 : Ninjalamb Says:

    Ah another great drama, the comedy element was to the max, the main character remind me of The mask, only a “super hero” with a twist. It is hilarious, however not much said on how the accounts were being done but the storyline, punt and also the chemistry between the actor have been fantastic – a great drama to watch!

  50. 50 : Aslee Says:

    Great drama, good casts. Unexpectedly, Lee JunHo play his role as the villain director seo very well. Daebak.. 👍👍

  51. 51 : KDrama Says:
