Radiant Office, KDrama Review
I started watching this Korean series after having just seen two dramas: Drinking Solo and Something About 1%. Both dramas starred Ha Seok-jin. I enjoyed both dramas tremendously, so I invested more viewing hours on this new one having put my faith to the lead actor, Seok -jin. Good investment.
Radiant Office shows work culture which is universal around the world. 🙂 🙂 🙂 How the newbies had to kowtow to their seniors. They had to find their wings and develop thicker skin pronto in order to survive.
Why the drama is called Radiant Office? I can only hazard a guess.
The interns, as well as the seniors, had to continuously excel in their jobs to secure or keep permanent positions.
Anyway the story is about three interns who started working at Hauline, in its furniture division. The interns have something in common, they were all treated for attempted suicide in the same hospital at the same time by an emergency doctor, who happens to be a chaebol, being the second son of the owner of Hauline.
At the same night in the hospital, all three individuals heard a rather alarming post-suicide prognosis that one of them has a terminal illness and not much long to live, probably 6 months max.
The three did not wait to find out who was actually had the illness.
That same night, Eun Ho-won, one of the three, played by Go Ah-sung, got a text that she passed the interview and now going to be an intern at Hauline, after rejections totalling to 101 job applications.
The next time the three met again was at Hauline as interns competing for a single permanent position.
Eun Ho-won, has been emboldened by her ‘illness’ that she is more confident and feisty, thinking she had really nothing to lose.
The actors are amazing in portraying their respective roles.
This is a 16-episodes series and would finish next week. What a shame. I am going to miss it.
It is a drama-comedy. Highly recommended.
