Misaeng post picture

junggugeo kaenada@noonas over forks:

“This was the least glamourous depiction of a Korean corporate office that I have seen, and I liked that. It gives me hope that this will be a funny, cynical workplace drama, and not just a chaste and melodramatic high school romance in disguise”.

“Ooh, this is different and interesting. I wasn’t sure what to expect from our webtoon-turned-drama (…) It’s probably not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s definitely intriguing. (…) we get a good sense of the tone — somewhat dark and mundane, but that’s what makes it realistic and relatable”.

“Though the show wasn’t as hilarious as some of the previews suggested, I found it quite entertaining. I particularly found it to be truthful in the depiction of corporate life”.

“Gaawdd, Misaeng is painful to watch…

I’ve braced myself for an uncomfortable watch — office grunts and all — but didn’t expect this tvN cable drama to be this raw and real”.

mslee1107@wandering thoughts:

“The writer has shown it the way it actually is. The pains, the struggles, the anxieties, the uncertainties and how to confront inner fears are all there, staring back at me across the screens. Seriously, beautiful”.

” It’s better late than never, especially true when a work is fantastic.

Series review


“Despite all the great things I have to say about the show, the drama may not be everyone’s cup of tea”.

Series review

snow@the drama corner:

“A swoony romance, a lovely couple that makes you giddy, or maybe some makjang and some melo. I was surprised to love Misaeng in spite of the fact that it is as far from these elements as possible”.

Series review

cali@diary of a k-drama addict:

“This show gives a very unique look at what it’s like to start a job at a big company and how lost you can be your first few days. Watching Geu Rae on his first day of work is just painful, he is so lost you can’t help but feel for him.”

Series review  First impressions (up to episode 03)

clockwatcher@couch kimchi:

“Wow! I don’t know what I was expecting but this isn’t it. Two episodes in and it’s already my current favorite”.

Episode 11 & 12   Episode 09 & 10  Episode 05, 06, 07 & 08  Episode 03 & 04  Episode 01 & 02


“Thus far I really like the story, but what worries me is that TvN has made some major episode cuts this year to several of their dramas (…) Therefore, I sincerely hope this show airs for its full 20 episodes”.

@the only shamz:

“All in all I’m loving this office drama and seriously can’t wait to watch the rest.”.

First impressions

leejin@leejin’s drama corner:

“This is awesome. I love this. I heard good things about the webtoon, and how it was popular – and it has every right to be popular. It’s very different from most dramas, or I would even say it’s different from all the dramas I’ve watched so far”.

First impressions


“Contrary to the light-hearted trailers, the first outing of Misaeng is nothing light and fluffy”.

First impressions

estelle@drama for real:

“It’s like high school all over again, except more clique-y and even more vicious”.

First impressions


“All in all, this was a fantastic first episode and I can definitely understand the praise its been getting”.

Episode 8  First impressions


“Misaeng is one of the most realistic and truest pieces I’ve ever watched. It portrays regular, ordinary life, but delivers such powerful messages at the same time. It really shows character growth and the power of human relationships”.

First impressions

 lore@stone cities:

” Powerful, but powerful in telling a rather mundane tale”.

First impressions


Misaeng is also pretty mundane in its style, and I think that’s working for it too. There are no cheesy love ballads, bouts of wallowing sorrow, or slow-motion skinship accidents”
