  1. 1 : taraLuvJJ Says:

    old story.. the main leads always arguing, hate each other but at the end falling in love… and Kim Hye Soo’s character similiar with her role on Style…

  2. 2 : Kurayuzaki666 Says:

    Oh another hate-love relationship. aippp

  3. 3 : Jule Says:

    đối thủ của Lee Seung Gi đây mà

  4. 4 : Ahjussi2012 Says:

    Now this synopsis leaves a lot to be desired. I wonder if there will be a new spin on the hate/love relationship or just the same old stuff warmed over? I guess I’ll tune n & c.

  5. 5 : Charot Says:

    same old story??? i hope this will not be a flop for Oh Ji Ho 🙂 just for him im looking forward to watch this drama.

  6. 6 : Nics Says:

    Love and hate relationship im sick of it.

  7. 7 : tigerb Says:

    at least it’s not an expanded version of ‘mr perfect’, 2006 movie, but i guess not far from it. wonder what twists and turns are going to be employed.

  8. 8 : Mia Says:

    always the same actors…

    i’m so sick… fuck korea …

    i fucking hate Kim Hye Soo… She is frozen, bland and just expressionless. She is like a robot. Worst actress ever..

  9. 9 : taraLuvJJ Says:

    pardon your language lady..
    if you don’t like it.. just don’t watch it..

    after watching the trailer, maybe i will try this drama.. sound funny…

  10. 10 : saraSJS Says:

    It’s not my cup of tea.

  11. 11 : sahel Says:

    every body watched 3rd hospital please say is it good drama for watch or not?

  12. 12 : anjeleta Says:

    i watch the 3dr hospital , it’s nice but not that perfect and i think u will not miss that much if u don’t watch it
    if u like romance drama it’s too far from that,
    if u like mystery and action it’s also too far
    u know it’s a regular drama
    if u want my advice it’s not worth to be watched and i don’t recomend it , although i like to watch the main actor OH JI HO drama’s but it was not soo good as we expect
    i don’t know what you prefer but i would like to advice you to watch (the equator man) i don’t know if you know it or not but i recomend it badly it’s my 2012 favorite drama it’s really s.thing super .. i will not say any word about it but it’s really drama deserve to be watched

  13. 13 : Mia Says:

    “if you don’t like it.. just don’t watch it..”

    ok………………. …………………..

    sahel : Take a look :


    best medical drama ever !

  14. 14 : Kurayuzaki666 Says:

    Yes, Brain is one of the best medical K-drama! Sure of that!

  15. 15 : Goo Na-ri Says:

    This one interesting .. As I look at the promotional poster .. I think this series is very and fluffy to watch ..

  16. 16 : Goo Na-ri Says:

    The trailer !! The trailer !! I knew this one gonna be easy to watch .. “)

  17. 17 : Micc Says:

    It’s such a weird drama! Not what you think. At least not the first episode.

  18. 18 : kel Says:

    Okay, after finishing the first episode, i can say its a good drama. Of course its a good start, its funny and hilarious. Many part where i laugh open. Good acting by all actors. Watch it if you want laughter =)

  19. 19 : mml Says:

    @17 Micc,
    i agree with you after watching episode 1, a little disappointed, not really funny, a very boring to me…….

  20. 20 : Micc Says:


    It’s unconventional, but still can get some laugh out of it. Hope I’m not saying this too soon.

    Kill time while waiting for Hundred Year’s inheritance. 😉

  21. 21 : Micc Says:


    Third Hospital is ok. Not great, not horrible. You will be disappointed if you are looking for romance in that drama though.

  22. 22 : Micc Says:

    The ending of ep 2 is interesting. I just hope the writer does have a good story about who Miss Kim is.

  23. 23 : FAaat Says:

    I don’t like her she is ugly!!

  24. 24 : Jyenie Says:

    This drama is funny, interesting and different.

  25. 25 : Micc Says:

    I sure missed Cha Chi Soo! LOL!

  26. 26 : kel Says:

    Believe me the show is nice. The rating is going up fast, so happy =)

  27. 27 : Lola Says:


  28. 28 : Jahaleel Says:

    @ Lola -27 links for this drama but it is still RAW though…


  29. 29 : Jyenie Says:

    Ep 4 is so hilarious!

  30. 30 : Jyenie Says:

    This drama is based on the Japanese drama style with Japanese sense of humour, so it’s different from what we normally see in Korean drama. I think it’s a nice blend of Japanese and Korean.

  31. 31 : Kurayuzaki666 Says:

    Looks like this one is interesting!

  32. 32 : Aga Says:

    i waiting drama subbed….:-)

  33. 33 : Jyenie Says:

    Ep 5

    Another entertaining episode! It’s so funny and yet touching.

  34. 34 : torri Says:

    hey guys
    i have not been able to watch this drama because the sub are not ready yet m but looking at the ratings it seems to be doing better than jang ok jung i wonder why considering jang ok jung has some very talented actors well i guess this show is good show will take look when sub is up

  35. 35 : Jyenie Says:

    Ep 6, Nice.

    This is the kind of drama you would look forward to watch in the evening after a long day work, it would help to de-stress.

  36. 36 : JL Says:

    This drama is good.

  37. 37 : Jyenie Says:

    Ep 7

    The coffee scene is the highlight of this episode.

  38. 38 : summer Says:

    The actress Kim Hyo Soo’s acting is excellent – worth watching

  39. 39 : Bonton Says:

    Such a pleasantly entertaining drama. Enjoyable.

  40. 40 : Bonton Says:

    Love it !

    I like how she is not afraid to speak her mind, such as calling a “cabbage patch top” a cabbage patch top ! Ha! Ha! And taking her stand and pride as a “contract employee”, not as some mopping pathetic employee !

  41. 41 : John k Says:

    What the hell are you people talking about!!
    This drama sucks !!!! This was suppose to be a comedy but its not funny.
    The actors are too damn old.

  42. 42 : Bonton Says:

    John k

    We are talking about how enjoyable and funny this drama is?

    Well, if you find this drama sucks, nothing we can do about it, can we? We are all different.

    There are other dramas more suitable to your taste and dull sense of humour listed on this site. Perhaps you will be able to find one suitable to your taste ?

    Enjoy !

  43. 43 : Aga Says:

    This drama subbed ep 1-3 in dramacrazy..

  44. 44 : Jyenie Says:

    @41john k
    I am sorry you are not up to the level yet.

  45. 45 : Jyenie Says:

    Oh Ji Ho’s hair suits his character here and he can carry off this ajumma perm that most of the people will look silly in it!

  46. 46 : JL Says:

    So far I enjoyed show very much, looking forward to Mon & Tues.

  47. 47 : Jyenie Says:

    I have watched up to ep 14. This is a feel good drama! 😉

  48. 48 : Jonydanger Says:

    BREAKING NEWS !!! Korean Reunification can take a back seat to the Obsession of Watching 직자의신 – the newest Korean drama guaranteed to shock, inspire, and traumatize you into involuntary laughters , ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

    Not since Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times, have I seen a equally poignant, touching and provoking movie/drama portraying a little guy fighting the system (in Chaplin’s case it was the industrialization process).

    Only this time, instead of The War of The Roses (a great film in its own right with Michael Douglas, Kathyleen Turner and Denny Devito starring), it is now the Great War between the contract workers and the permanent workers struggling for supremacy in the computer age – the director’s version of Karl Max’s dialectical materialism in the Korean society.

    In this case, the very handsome and funny 오지호 is equivalent to the “Queen of Mean”(Leona Helmsley) in the male form terrorizing and bullying all the new recruits in his company in the name of streamlining and efficiency.

    Except that, in this drama, he has met his match when he is pitted against the Queen of Office – a certain Ms Kim (the stone-faced and awe- inspiring 김혜수) , who is the unlikely professional contract worker underdog foe and nemesis, rising to the occasions and becoming a superwoman whenever she is challenged by the system.

    The whole drama ( No, I haven’t finished watching it yet ) is filled with many hilarious, slapstick comedic scenes , and with numerous classic, iconic one-liners and superb acting , especially on the part of the heroine …………… All I can say is this ” 돌아와요, 미스김 ” !!!! Aja, Aja, Fighting ! :@P

    PS: Some memorable and classic one-liners ( This one is actually a one liner followed by an explanation) : ” Who are Korea’s top three thieves ? – ”

    “(Version one, in front of a marketing presentation) First is (the famous male star)Cha Chsu, the thief of women’s heart. Second is Yeon Jung Hoon, the thief who stole the actress Han Ga In . And lastly, crabs marinated in soy sauce – the thieves of rice.”

    “(An even funnier version two, spoken in front of a crowd of 아줌마 by Ms Kim) First is the husband who stole your heart. Second are the children, who robbed you of your slender figure. Third are the soy sauced crabs, which will rob you of your rice. ” ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ So funny , yet so sad for the female audience ……………박수 !!!!!

  49. 49 : lovewinter Says:

    Nice office show, something different from normal Korean drama and is funny.
    I enjoy it!

  50. 50 : French viewer Says:

    We really enjoy watching this drama because it’s so different and hilarious. We forget the dailies worries. This drama is based on the Japanese series ” ハケンの品格 / no Hinkaku” (Pride of the Temp). The Japanese have a step ahead for the humor : it’s very great…
    But since episode 6 there aren’t english subtitles. From which site can we watch with english subtites ?

  51. 51 : hny Jo Says:

    Daebak after winter !! just on eps 4 ..this drama cracks me up, lead women character so interesting..really ‘something’ !! and Oh Ji hoo ..hmm annoying character but so lovely man hahah… good lah very fun !! worth it to watch…

  52. 52 : Jyenie Says:

    Not many middle aged men can be annoying and cute at the same time but Oh ji Ho is one of them!

  53. 53 : hny Jo Says:

  55. 55 : Jyenie Says:

    @hny Jo

    I am not Oh Ji Ho’s fan but I can’t imagine this drama without him:-o I am watching ep 15 now, I tend to drop so many dramas along the way but this drama has been able to hold my interest:))

  62. 62 : cio Says:

    @ bitbit
    its good so funny

  63. 63 : cio Says:

    @ bitbit (pinay?)
    have only watched 2 episodes. However, the drama is quite promising in the sense that my interest is there. I love the lead actor and lead actress. I predict they will be a great couple in the end.

    Acting wise, all are giving their best and there is no boring part of the drama so far.

    There are mysteries still unfolding with regards to the office queen, and I am awaiting for the revelations soon.

  64. 64 : bitbit Says:

    @ cio(yes)

    thanks i will watch….

  65. 65 : mauricia Says:

    Really refreshing drama and so funny. I haven’t enjoyed a drama this much I a long, long time. I’m at episode #10.

    I highly recommend.

  66. 66 : Cc Says:

    Very funny and interested…. Good for distress…

  67. 67 : Miss Leaf Says:

    I am really enjoy to watch this drama, i watch this at KBS world on 8.00 pm, it refresh my mind after working all day long, it’s a funny, but also romance drama. the story is simple but not boring, very exciting..

  68. 68 : novii Says:

    So bored !!!!!!

  69. 69 : Wongel Says:

    One of the best Korean dramas I’ve ever seen. Kim Hyesoo and Oh Jiho were as great as it gets. Thank you for an amazing drama.

  70. 70 : cc Says:

    i cant find the last episode 15 & 16 online with eng sub!!! where can i watch this??

  71. 71 : Hanako Says:

    To me it is one of the most boring drama series of the year. So i do not think it will get any award and never like the main actress, her character is almost the same in Style Drama. What my friend told me was true, she told me it was a boring drama but I finished watching , and found it really true and bored, nothing exciting all throughout…

  72. 72 : icegirl Says:

    funny drama! but all i can think of while watching is that i would like to run a comb through Oh Ji Ho’s hair…that darn perm is sooo annoying!

  73. 73 : awesomemicaela Says:

    Am I the only one left unsatisfied with the ending? =(

  74. 74 : mail Says:

    simple yet interesting drama…

  75. 75 : Miss KIM Says:

    a very good kdrama…very funny but tackles a very serious issue.
    perfect 10!!
    the ending is not that satisfying.

  76. 76 : Miss KIM Says:

    @Hanako the story encompasses labor maybe thats why u may find it boring but they made the drama humorous yet serious.

  77. 77 : Micc Says:

    So surprised to find out this is a remake of a Japanese drama!
