Counting down to the weekend with Misaeng

The teasers for Misaeng continue to be relatably funny, as you can see in two more previews featuring two of its leads, Im Shi-wan and Kang So-ra. The story depicts the lives of ordinary office workers encountering everyday conflicts and foibles, and the original Misaeng manhwa was a hit with twenty- and thirtysomething office workers largely because its realistic touch resonated with their experiences.

In Im Shi-wan’s teaser, he’s once again taking the office elevator and eagerly awaiting the end of the day. When it arrives, he’s so excited that he’s moved nearly to tears. I think we all know that feeling.

Then in Kang So-ra’s teaser, she rattles off the workdays on one hand (“Monday, Tuesday Wednesday, Thursday, Friday”) and then lights up to count the weekend on the other hand… until she does the sad, unjust math.

Those two actors were also featured in a magazine spread for October’s Cosmopolitan, along with their co-stars Lee Sung-min and Kang Haneul. They’re looking a lot more polished than they will in the drama, but they may as well enjoy the chic duds before they have to return to the drudgery of office life.

Misaeng premieres on October 17 on tvN.

This looks really interesting and funny. I hope there is no lovelines- it'll be boring and too familiar. Friendships would be awesome. But if there is a loveline, let Kang Haneul get the girl. Boy's been single for too long..

I agree with you re: love lines, but I'd argue in favour of letting Im Siwan get the girl - poor boy got tortured, killed, dumped by the girl he loved and played the villain in his last four acting projects! He's earned a break.

I second this. Saw him in The Attorney as well and he's promising as an actor.

I wouldn't mind light romance, as long as it doesn't drive the plot and there are no dramatics.

It's a blessing if weekends even exist. In a couple of places I worked at, pulling all-nighters on Sundays was quite a common occurrence.

I recall my days as a medical intern where even public holidays/days of festivals passed in a blur because it was work work and more work. It didn't matter if it was a Monday or a Sunday, night or day...YOU WORKED!

Those dark days still make me shudder...

It's just one year...one miserable year. It also depends on the seniors supervising you and the fellow interns you work with.(plus the kind of hospital you're working in)

In the hospital where I interned, I rotated through the major disciplines(obs/gyn, surgery, internal medicine and paed) and lemme be honest: obs/gyn had the worst and heaviest workload and I moved through it like a zombie. But it turned out to be the rotation I enjoyed most coz of my supervisors and the fellow interns I worked with. It's like we knew it was a hellish place but we were all in it together. And most seniors treated us interns with respect.

Unlike internal medicine which I still despise. We were treated like dogs and blamed for every single thing that went wrong, even when it wasn't our fault.

Seeing one the characters with that weird zombie-look had me laughing coz that was us basically...and not even Friday could make us leap for joy

Oh God. Kinda sucks since I don't really like ob/gyn, and I like internal medicine...Hopefully, it differs based on where you're working. Although, I do think that sometimes that there are certain characteristics that can be attributed to different specialities (peds being usually more patient, for example).

The real kick is going to be having to choose between kdramas or sleep though. :D

The teasers hit right at 'ya heart it hurts. Anyway, the teasers look promising enough that I hope the drama itself will do the same. I can't wait to watch some close resemblance of myself in a drama.

This is kind of inappropriate, but in the Cosmopolitan picture with all of them, do Im Shi-wan's pants look uncomfortable to anyone? *Whistles innocently*

I dismissed it as a stray bunching of pleats, his horrible turtleneck distracted me too much.

I would kill for a job that let me have Saturdays off...... Kang Sora is basically me right there. (apart from the staggering beauty of course)

I'm really interested in how this will turn out, it looks very different from the Misaeng short in which Im Siwan starred.

So far the teasers have seemed to have a lighter tone than the short that was posted awhile back. That's okay though. I wouldn't want it to be too serious. There's gotta be a light at the end of the tunnel.

Ah, Kang Ha Neul...Monstar is on my local TV right now, I watch it every morning, dubbed, unfortunately. I personally prefer non-dubbed original versions of kdrama. I miss Kang Ha Neul's soft voice...at least I could still hear him sing!
Oh, and I'm a housewife now, I quit my job after having my first child. Sometimes I missed those days when I look forward to fridays. Being a housewife, weekdays and weekends are more or less the same lol Anyways, can't wait for this drama to air! I hope it can bring back those workday memories..and..oh, the cute...*clappingfuriouslylikeatwoyearold*

Was anyone else unimpressed with the teasers?

I understand it's a teaser, but I felt both Im Shi Wan and Kang Sora were breaking character right as the camera cut....

I remember people saying they were sick of seeing Kang Sora casted in dramas here on dramabeans a couple weeks/months ago and I cannot agree, I love her so much! The teasers look great and I hope I'm not disappointed :)

Bitter fans of the other girl from Dr Stranger, no doubt. At least Kang Sora can act, unlike that one.
