    I'm waiting for the next season (2 &3), hope it doesn't take time so long to be adapted from the new webtoon ! 🙂
    Hope it will get many awards in Korea ! Im Siwan & Lee Sung Min Shi ! I love your both acting ! Best couple ever ! hahaha XD

    i’m not sure what’s push me to watch this drama but i’m really glad and i feel lucky to watch it, this is my favourite korean drama since years i really love it .. great to the end …
    recently i can’t find any fine drama to watch , i get bored from the love craps and annoying triangle shit and all the destiny love but in this drama
    each episode was full of wisdom and i learn Lessons
    i enjoy the music the cast and everything about this drama it’s a masterpiece well done i hope 2 see another season

    Adeul Says:

    It’s at the top of my best drama list. Like a dish, every ingredient was carefully measured. Brilliant!

    A romance would have ruined the story at this stage. If a second season, romance between a mature Gue Rae and Young Yi would really clinch it. They already have something there. Who knows she might become yet another “Scary Wife”…nahh. It’s not in her character.

    The cast was perfect and the story is heart-warming and gratifying.

    Carmen Says:

    This was a really, really great drama, you do not need a love story, with this writer and the actors, It was really really a good drama, with the reality of the workers in Korea. Thank you

    jaykwon Says: do u know what happened to the last scene after the credits? The Girl that died is she related to Geu Rae?
    No that was the girl that kill herself due to the company not hire her, she was a temp like Geu Rae, but yes they knew eachother by accident, or by the loss of a person….That was really good to see it…..

    @ jaykwon

    no she’s not… but i think gue rae’s father and the lady died at the same accident remember Gue Rae’s father died in an accident and i think so is the girl… 🙂

    Hanako Says:

    I find this drama is rather slow pace. I do not think it is the best drama, there are many other dramas better than this one. Kind of boring drama to me, not much of excitement. Pinocchio is much better than this drama if upon comparison. It is an OK drama only to me

    I just started watching Misaeng afew days ago. Enjoy the drama very much.
    I like you very much – your looks, acting, and your character.

    ep 6
    i don’t like South Korea office culture.
    Seems that the senior will bully the junior and male bully the female.

    eg – not only they scream to other staffs of lower rank, the man also throws the papers to the leading lady Kang Sora’s face.

    In my country, we will sue the person if he or she throws papers into our face or abuse us verbally. They will be dealt with. ha ha.

    We always treat each other with respect – no matter what positions you hold, no matter what gender you are. 😛

    OK OK OK Says:

    ep 19

    21 to 31 mins is so funny.

    oh min suk & Kang Ha Neul talking about what type of ladies they like after 2 females colleagues with different characters came to their dept to do environment survey.

    Oh Min Suk interested in a more serious lady…. his expression is extremely funny to me… ha ha ha

    whoever wrote this script – bravo – great job

    Congrats to all the actors & actresses – you all people really put up a GOOD SHOW.

    I AM GLAD I WATCH IT & FINISH 20 EPISODES IN 3 DAYS STRAIGHT. 😛

    OK OK OK Says:

    other people who do not know will think that the ratings is low.

    THIS A A PAID CHANEL AND ITS THE HIGHEST RATINGS I HAVE EVER SEEN.

    BECAUSE YOU ALL DESERVE IT – A VERY VERY GOOD DRAMA. VERY HAPPY THAT I WATCH IT. 😛

    Si Wan ssi

    You are even more handsome and look extremely smart when you comb up your hair in the last episode.

    Good luck to you & looking forward to your new drama.
    Hope your role is as smart as this Misaeng.
    You are a good actor with souls 😛

  23. 123
    OK OK OK Says:

    one thing that i don’t like the Korean culture is that they drink soju – alcohol too much.

    ITS BAD FOR THE LIVER.
    please don’t drink or don’t drink too much. Please stay healthy. 🙂

  24. 124
    OK OK OK Says:

    not fair

    why Kang Ha Neul in not included in the main profile pictures.
    He is also one of the main leads. 🙁

    Hope to see Kang Ha Neul and Siwan in leading role for future dramas. 🙂

    Just started this show by accident actually, and had to come and say it’s pretty darn good like 6 Eps. in. It’s heartfelt, entertaining, and sad. I’m glad I happend to begin it because I’m enjoying it.

    Miro Says:

    Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! This is not your typical drama, it’ll will stay in your heart for a very long time. I understand now why it did get a lot of praise. All the actors, and I mean EVERYONE in this drama did a very good job. No part is too big or too small, every part is important. I am very impatient with a drama that has many episodes and for the first time, I wished it’s 50 episodes long (crazy, right?). This has NO filler episodes unlike many kdramas out there. My only regret is, not preparing a towel (yup, you read it right, damn TOWEL!) when watching this drama, I cried a LOT. I think everyone should give this drama a chance. Stay away if you’re into the usual rom-com, rich boy-poor girl thing and eye-candy drama, this is not for you. Those who understand/experience the hardships, tears, frustrations, sadness, happiness, fulfillment in your work environment, you can relate to this one.
