Drama Hangout: Ms. Temper and Nam Jung-ki

It feels like forever since we’ve seen Lee Yo-won on the small screen (even though it’s only been since 2013’s Empire of Gold), but now viewers are getting to enjoy her in a rare turn as a romantic comedy heroine—as opposed to all the dead serious heroines she’s played in the past—in Ms. Temper and Nam Jung-ki, the newest offering over on JTBC.

Even before the promotional materials were released, Ms. Temper had my attention when it touted its opposites-attract premise as one involving an almost violently tempermental boss and an employee with the patience of a saint. We’ve seen that drama in many forms by now, but with the genders switched so that the short-tempered boss is played by Lee Yo-won while the beleaguered employee is played by Yoon Sang-hyun, suddenly it becomes a lot more interesting.

Plus, she’ll be graced by cameo appearances in the forms of Song Jae-hee, Lee Jung-jin, and Yeon Jung-hoon as her three ex-husbands. (Yes, three!) Methinks the titular Nam Jung-ki will need some huevos rancheros to go with that endless font of timid resilience if he’s to become her fourth, and hopefully last, husband.

For the sake of comparison, Madame Antoine and D-Day both ended at sub 1%. I'm not sure how JTBC defines "good" ratings, but someone translated a large part of the press conference interview in the open thread and it seems like their aim is 3% and 5% is considered extremely good (cr. fan). Personally, I think 2% is pretty impressive. Ratings almost doubled since the premiere and I think they may even overtake Memory (tvN) for the most recent episode *crossing my fingers*.

I read an article that says Ms. Temper's ratings are the highest so far for Jtbc since 2014. So its pretty impressive and koreans already regard it as a hit for a cable tv drama. We should celebrate!!

I REALLY love Ms.Temper-she is simply amazing. I think it was the biggest shock, 'cause I excepted to hate her and think of her as bully.
But Nope, she was rude, loud but also fair and smart person.
And other great thing about this drama is the whole idea of it-about how to be loyal to your job AND family. At first you are on Nam Jung Ki's side who seems timid/weak but is actually trying really hard to feed his family.
Then we meet Ms Temper who seems selfish but somehow is actually right. Just giving food with the price of your pride isn't enough and it doesn't make your family happy. Sometimes you have to stand for yourself and not forget why you chose this career/path, even if it will cost a lot and look like a crazy action.
I think even without romance this drama could do great, but it's still a pleasant bonus so why not

I am starting to fall for this drama so much. At first, I just wanted a transition comedy to get me through my Signal withdrawal but this show has captured my attention a great deal. I was never a fan of Lee Yo-Won but I just loved her character as Ms Temper. It is not enough to just live by and be agreeable of what is being given by people around us. There comes a time where we need to fight and stand up for ourselves. Manager Ok learns the word trust for the first time being around the Lovely team. She has been scarred multiple times that the word was alienating for someone like her.

I really hope there is a love story angle brewing between Deputy Nam and Manager Ok. They are both so opposite but have so much of the same heart and family values. I find episode 8 very charming when she is trying hard to ignore those feelings while everyone around them (brother & respective parents) already knew the possibility of them being a perfect match. Of course Deputy Nam will never cough up the courage to ever admit his attraction and admiration for her. lol.. what can I say the guy is never the type. I think this will be a frustration for Manager Ok.. everyone wants her (including all the ex-husbands) except for the one guy she truly likes. Can't wait for the next episode!

I just dropped Goodbye Mr. Black and Come Back Ajusshi when I landed upon this drama. Initially I am willing to try it for a few laugh but I ended up caring for some of the characters. It seems like a simple set up but if you look closely it's full of hearts as well.

I know we are expecting a bully when we first see the teasers but it is actually not like that at all. The heroin doesn't struck first if she's not getting attacked in the first place lol. How she called her abusive ex-boss (who also played the same abusive character in Misaeng) "bastard" is also refreshing!

For now, the workplace plot is believable too. Like, often dramas depict workplace setting just for the sake of it, when they actually shows more romance that happens in the setting than the actual work that the employees should be doing. The company where the drama centers in feels relatable to me so I enjoyed it.

Our main family of four guys in this drama is heartwarming too. The little son is sooo adorable and cute, especially when he is with Lee Yo Won :3 The unemployed brother can be frustrating at times but I think he's the kind of guy who is street smart rather than book smart so I hope he can hit it big later on in the drama. The father is just like our main protagonist. He is always apologetic haha. You don't need to be like that, ajusshi...and lastly, our main character is very very timid, but I like that the show presents us with reasons why he had to be like that, there is his upbringing and also the fact that he is the head of (a growing) household.

With that said, the presence of Lee Yo Won's character totally balanced out our main guy's character. She is not overly abusive at all. She is the one who knocked some sense into our hero's (and the president's!) timid head and it is refreshing to see the hero stand up for himself bit by bit. I saw some knetz comments on how cute Lee Yo Won looks when she grins (which she rarely does in the drama) and I agree! Since she doesn't do it often, when she does smile it's cute :)

I love the ex husbands too and can totally see why they falls for our heroin. I can't wait to meet the third ex. Heee.

In conclusion, (as of episode 6) I recommend this drama to everyone :)

Omaigod it is here! TQ Heads ❤❤❤❤

This drama is so refreshing, and it is great to see LYW in other character ?
It has a workplace as a theme, and the female character is not a bully at all. It also touch family relationship esp Nam Jung Ki's family.

The rating also can be considered as decent (2% at jtbc). LYW still not lost her touch even with absence around 2 years.

I love this drama. It took me 3-4 episodes to get into liking it and now I care so much about the characters. I really root for them to hit it big with their serum and for our miss temper to help mr timid guy bit by bit. The humor is really entertaining too lol. Not violent or abusive at all.

Yay! Thanks so much for this hangout Heads!

Whoever wrote this script deserves some kind of award. This story is zippy, funny, yet substantive and thought provoking. The scriptwriter manages to make almost every side character and relationship colorful and interesting, from ODJ's "frenemies" relationships with her exes to ODJ's relationship with the kid to ODJ's evolving relationship with Deputy Han to Bong Gi's gradual character arc. Within the few minutes on screen, ODJ's mom left a memorable impression as well. Really solid writing all around.

And even though this show goes big on the comedy, the last few minutes of ep 7 were one of most gut wrenching scenes I have seen in a kdrama in a long time.

Took a while for the acting and writing to hit their stride, but the drama's enjoyable now. In the beginning, the acting was waaaay over the top, even in comparison to Come Back, Ahjussi, considering that the latter had a more incredulous plot. I also initially thought that Lee Yeo Won's character would be more volatile, like temper explosions galore, but the balls of steel attitude is rather effective, too.

At this point, I like how the story has balanced out the exaggerated introduction. I like how everyone now seems to care about their work. I like how they've all taken a leaf out of Ok Da Jung's book and each grew a pair. Most of all, I like how the freeloading brother is actually playing a substantial role in the success of his brother, despite working behind the scenes.

All in all, not my favorite drama, but I think it's enjoyable.

PS. Took me a while to recognize the two Ssangmundong parents without the 1988 coiffure. XD Also, the slick ex. 9 ins! XD

I really hated Jung Gi feeling like he HAS to debase himself, esp when it was so obv that it wasnt doing much? like i get that he's worried about his job/career but cmon now? its like the events of last week didnt even happen! Hopefully after what he witnessed in ep 7, he'll finally get a dang clue.
in the previews it seems Mi Ri gets her revenge at least!

This drama is awesome!! I am only watching this and marriage Contract right now, lol.

I absolutely love, love Lee Yo-won's character- Ok Da-jung.

I love that she sticks to her principles and how she takes pride in her work. I love her honesty too and it is so rare to see a character with everything. I am sure this is way too early in the drama and hat she would have her flaws as well, but

Honesty + Principles + Pride + Intelligence = Badass Ok Da-jung.

I also love how her and Joo-woo seem to connect. If they do develop the romance angle further, I can't wait to see how good she will be with him

You know, I'm seeing this less and less as a romantic comedy which is actually a good thing because it means I am invested in more than the loveline. In fact, I wouldn't mind it at all if they tread very lightly where the romance is concerned. I enjoy watching Ms. Temper strengthen those around her who have been trodden upon, and in turn how they urge her to consider the possibility that not every obstacle has to be plowed through and that she needs to give more consideration to the effect of her steamrolling on others. It's a give-and-take scenario, with both sides learning, which I can always appreciate in any story. My expectations have been superseded for this drama and I hope that stays true.

We must be watching a different show. This IS a romantic comedy and it has an excellent chance of developing into a non-traditional love triangle. I personally am betting that Woo Joo gets the girl/woman (i.e. Ms Temper), heck in my eyes he already has her. His Dad, Jung Gi, does not really stand a chance. I firmly believe that Jung Gi will spend the rest of his life playing second fiddle to Woo Joo as far as Ms Temper is concerned. Can you imagine many years from now, dating a grown-up Woo Joo and having Ms Temper as your future mother-in-law? I want to see that drama!

A reason to post here...this is the only drama I wait excitedly for each week.

All the characters are growing (somewhat). From working just to pay bills to truly caring about their work and trying to overcome all the ramifications involved in creating a valuable product.

I especially like LYW's character and her evolving relationships with the other characters. The end of ep 7 was so heartbreaking, hope the writer gives us more backstory on her earlier career days. The ex husbands are a nice icing on the cake. Can't wait to meet the third.

Have just finished watching episode 7 and wishing today is tomorrow already, huhu.
Much love for this drama coz it's coherent, witty, quirky and laugh-out-loud funny. The same feels i got from watching Ex-Girlfriend Club, the first few episodes of Bubblegum, and Witch's Romance minus the angst.
Shud have known would fall in love with this drama when the disgusting boss threw glass of water into his female subordinate, and instead of trembling futilely, she threw the pitcher and bloodied his nose, woohoo. Double satisfaction as it was as if Manager Ma from One International got his karmic comeuppance here! (tho i got the feeling that the actor ahjushi is sweet and cute in real life)
All the cast are spot on too, you can't help being drawn to the characters and wanting to know what makes them tick and how they can better each other by learning others' point of view. And absolutely loving the sound effect! It's the case when the story is good and the execution is even better.
I guess we'll be meeting ex no. 3 tomorrow, ugh, can't waittt!

I am so happy this drama is getting some love here on DB. 7 episodes in and its getting only better. This is the show I am looking forward to every week. Its soooo much better than I could expect from the teases. The script writer did a very good job on the characters, not only the main leads but every character has his/her own story and growth. The actors and director are doing an excellent job by bringing these characters to life. But I wouldn’t really call it a rom-com as there is a little to no romance (and that’s a good thing!) and though I love humor I cant bring myself to call this work place drama a comedy. The end of ep 7 was really heart wrenching.
So guys please watch this show. Its my first time to advertise a drama, but where else could you watch a female lead stand up against the sexist and incompetent boss and coworkers (and society in general), against some shaddy practices at work and against her ex-mother-in-low her like most MIL in dramaland knows no boundaries. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. That’s my favorite character and girl crush Ok Da-jung and my favorite relationship is of course her with the boy.

I LOVE seeing Ok Da-jung break the glass ceiling with every episode! I'm so invested in her story, and the story of everyone at Lovely.

I also *really* appreciate that this drama shows how fraught the working world can be for women. This show has not been shy about calling out sexism in the workplace, and showing how successful women suffer hits to their reputations and honor.

The whole Mi-ri sexual assault plot line broke my heart, in so many ways. First, obviously, the sexual assault itself. Second, when poor Mi-ri thought that Deputy Park was in on the assault (can you imagine how horrified she must have felt?), and then a different kind of betrayal when Deputy Park didn't immediately support her when she asked him to be her witness. Third, when her happiness and pride in her work was overtaken by her worry about fending off more advances from Manager Slimeball. Fourth, when President Jo didn't fire Manager Slimeball right away.

I was so happy that Manager Slimeball got called out and shamed in front of his peers, but I am still quivering with rage that he wasn't fired. He's a sexual predator, and he's not going to stop abusing his female subordinates. I wish that they had gone farther and gone to the police!

At first, I thought that I wouldn't like this drama. It has this slapstick comedy vibe from early promotions.

However, I continue to watch this drama because even if the actors tend to exaggerate for comical purposes, the story itself has a lot of humanity in it and you get to have a dose of daily office life. It's a bit of an underdog story, and I think anyone can get inspired and channel hope from a story like this. At times when I'm having a bad day because of office-related hurdles, watching an episode at the end of the day makes my frustrations go away.

The romance is a bit slow in the storyline, but I like how things are going -- it makes things realistic. They're a weird couple, having extreme personalities. Thus, I'm looking forward to how their romance will unfold. :-)

This is a show I did not intend to watch and tried up to Episode 3, before stopping for a bit. I believe I can only skip-watch it, but that seems fine so far (I'm into Ep 5-6 now!).

It's not so compelling that I want to watch every minute of it, the premise is simple and some parts are cliched enough so that much of it is predictable. It's easy to watch and understand and relax with, so skipping scenes saves time without me losing too much of the story.

I'm a sucker for some kinds of underdog stories, I find. I do want to see our poor 'hero' gain confidence and become more on par with our heroine. I want Lovely to succeed and rub mean Gold corp faces into it LOL!

Of course, Lee Ye Won's rendition of a smart, no-nonsense and just manager in a world where corruption is expected if business is to succeed is a great pull factor. Watching her soften up enough to accept Manager Nam as her new love interest adds more strength to the pull.

Yeah, I think it's going to be fun!

I skipped to Ep 8 and love it!

This is quite a rare kind of show ... it looked like it could be fluffy or just cliched but is actually dealing with difficult issues in business and the workplace which are really true to life, and does so in a down-to-earth way. And the cliches are turned on their heads with each well considered call that Da Jung makes.

I love the no nonsense, righteous style of Da Jung and how she's whipped the team from mediocre followers to excited initiators. I cheer every time the powerless who felt they had no choice but to accept their lot and bow their heads decided to fight and I was grinning like a fool when they finally won. I'm glad to say that this show has become another nice surprise to look forward to. :)

I like your point about seeking out "not just handsome male leads" in your dramas.

I think that I like this drama so much because I have been watching k-dramas for years now, and I'm familiar enough with the Gorgeous Man meets Gorgeous Woman plot line to want a little something more from my dramas. I don't think I would have loved this drama in my early drama-watching days, but now that I have some experience with the genre, I appreciate how much of a departure this show is from most other shows.

Nam Jung-gi is not your typical hawt-bodied drama lead. I mean, he is attractive, but more in an "ahjusshi you might actually see on the street" kind of way. I love love LOVE his character in this drama: he's not an arrogant alpha male, he's a pragmatic, sensitive, somewhat timid man with a strong moral compass who is just trying to deal with the pressure of supporting a family on his own. That's a complex character I can get behind, and who I enjoy watching each week.

I loved this actor when he played Oska in Secret Garden, and I'm really enjoying watching him play a character that is so different from that.

You can see/feel how ODJ's heart softens when it comes to Woo Joo. She just can't resist him lol. (99% why she agreed for them to stay at her house for 5 days is because of him :3)

I got captivated by their chemistry when Da Jung started looking out on woo joo while she "rented" him his own bike for 10 mins ^^, From then on I always look forward to their interactions.

Started this drama because of Chansung, but ended loving every piece of it. It's funny and touching and also kinda brave? They touch subjects I've never seen in dramas. Just finished episode 8 and without giving away any spoiler, I say I like this show even more.

I think the drama starts getting good around the third or fourth episode, so I advise you guys to stick with it so you can see there is more to all the characters there.

I agree with you about how brave the subject-matter is in this drama! They have really called out slut-shaming in a way I've never seen before in a Korean drama.

Ugh, speaking of which, did anyone one else actually reel back from the screen with hurt during Da-jung's flashback when her first husband called her a slut? I'd felt okay-ish about him up to that point, but once I saw that, he was dead to me.

Seeing Lee Yo Won after so long time is such a delight and her acting as an ill tempered lady is hilarious !

I so love this drama for its workplace setup. Everyone at the office is so caring about the work even if it means they work for the paycheck. I like how Ok Da Jung takes care of her employees secretly while acting very rough and authoritative on the facade.

Ok Da Jung looks so cute on whatever expression she wears!

I am really enjoying watching the development of the relationship between Ok Da-jung and Deputy Han (the older female employee). I love watching them interact, and I love seeing how they respect each other more and more with each interaction.

I never thought I'd say this about a k-drama, but I love how the romance between Nam Jung-gi and Ok-Da-jung is at a very, very slow simmer. I really enjoy seeing both of them interacting with the other employees and getting to know themselves better. I am looking forward to their romance, but I have truly appreciated the show's focus on the other relationships between friends, co-workers, and family.

I don't think I will mind if the leads remain platonic friends. I mean, 3 divorces! But maybe it is interesting to see a romance build up or a hint of a romance in the end.

Chansung! What a surprise. I never felt that it was him throughout. Good funny acting I must say. Some mediocre actors make it painfully clear that they are acting badly.

The female lead actress gained a new fan. I have to remember her name!

Plot to me remains strong. One of the best so far this year.

Director Nam's development was subtle and natural. It felt like a gradual reveal and I end up satisfied at the end of episode 8.

I really enjoyed episode 8 and the gradual insights into what made ODJ into Ms. Temper. (I loved the line where they called her "our Ms. Temper".)

I'm am wondering about the character aspect of her 3rd ex and how he will be around her. I'm a big fan of Yeon Jung Hoon so I'm really looking forward to it.

I am A$$ U ME ing that he is the guy Kim Hwan Gyoo (i.e. SOB) is presenting as a potential investor to Lovely. Based on his partnership with Mr Evil, I can only guess that he is hostile toward Ms Temper. It is kinda hard to be a friend to Mr Evil and not be evil too. Just my 2¢.

A funny and entertaining show, if you don't take it seriously. Simple storyline that makes you boo when the bad guys win, then cheer when the good guys overcome each obstacle. All the characters are interesting. One of two shows I look forward to each week.

I'm really pleased that Kwon Hyun Sang got some really good material in these latest episodes (he plays Park Hyun Woo, the ingredients guy at Lovely who is drowning in student loan debt). He also played the frightening villain vampire L in Vampire Prosecutor season 2 so it'a s bit of a reunion next week when the prosecutor himself Yun Jung Hoon shows up as the Third Ex.

The last drama I saw Kwon Hyun Sang in was King 2 Hearts. He was Lee Seung Gi's army mate (and one of his bodyguards) along with Jo Jung Suk's character.

‘Ms. Temper & Nam Jung Gi’ Surprises By Switching Authority Personalities Between Male And Female Lead Characters In K-Drama

Thanks for the links. They lists further reasons to like the drama!

By the way, the drama seems to build up a new conflict every weekend but resolves it immediately, i.e. within two episodes. It doesn't drag it out. Nice change as there are no suffocating cliffhangers.

I just hope the show keeps the light feel...

Agree! Another reason that makes me stick to it is that even if they introduce a new conflict, it will be resolved instantly by ok dajung by the next episode. So there's no reason to skip some scenes just to get the good part because you know that everything will be fine by the airing of the next episode or by the end of each episode. No draggy parts. Just perfect!

I hated the first episode- but then I read the rave reviews here and tried the show again. It took until episode 4 for the show to find its groove and now I love it! Ms. Temper is such a great character.
Does this show remind anyone else of Miss Korea? Not just for the cosmetics business, but also for the strong female characters?

I like that we're finally going to meet the 3rd husband, but I really, really want to see what kind of woman is Nam Jung Gi's ex-wife. Why doesn't she see her son? What kind of woman is she? I think when Jung Gi's father mentioned that he was sad when his son got divorced it was the first time the woman had been acknowledged. I had assumed she had been dead all of this time.

It is so nice to have a strong female lead that is strong and proud but not obnoxious. Kudos to whatsername and the writer and director for bringing out such a worthy female in Asian drama. One also understand where Nam Jung Gi is coming from, trying not to make waves even though he feels strongly about an issue. It is such a refreshing show, realistic but not too bogged down. I look forward to watching it every weekend >.<

I just watched the latest ep 9 and my, what a change of mood from the earlier episodes. What I really like at this point of the story is that how they showed the Slimeball Manager has not changed his way at all, not even when everyone in the office knew of his slimy ways. In the contrary, they showed how he's getting worse, now even targeting poor Park Daeri.

You know, when Park Daeri refused to be the witness in the sexual assault case I thought his reasons were not too strong. Now I get it. Not only he'll have trouble paying his loans but he also have to face his terrible superior at work, everyday. I can't imagine if I am at his place. I might have resigned right away.

IMO this drama is quite realistic in its potrayal of the office setting, minus the fact that Bong Gi is always there to solve everybody's small problems with the help of pocket money from Ms. Temper! :)

the Slimeball Manager has not changed his way at all...

Ugh, this is what I was afraid of when they didn't fire his @$$. He is an awful predator, and he's not going to change his ways because he got a slap on the wrist.

I'm actually kind of glad that the drama chose this path for him; I think him becoming a "changed man" would have been unrealistic. I also like that [SPOILER FOR EPISODES 9 & 10] the drama shows that Mi-ri is still upset about her assault, and the fact that Manager Shin is still working at Lovely, and that this anger caused her to become a corporate spy. I was still mad at her when I found out it was her, but her reasons made a lot of sense. [/SPOILER]

I agree with you. One thing that the drama does well is by showing that people are not going to change overnight and I really appreciate that.

Ahh, just watched ep 9 and bawled my eyes out. Da-jung and her mother at the train station - no words...

Wish that Mr Snowball would get to the point, though. He's been hovering about over an ep now. Yes, we know he's evil and the director signed the bad bad papers as well, so what's his deal? Guess I have to wait til' tomorrow to find out why he'd send creepy gifts (presumably) to his ex wife.

I think he wants Da Jung back and something tells me that he's actually doing everything to help her in her new place of work as opposed to sabotage. Ex husband one had a motormouth and insulted her in the worst possible way. Ex husband two was a mama's boy who never stood up for her with regards to his mother. Something tells me that ex-husband three though was the one she's most affected by. Whether it's regret or apprehension, I guess we'll discover in episode 11

I really like Lee Yo-won's crying scenes. I liked how Ms. Temper and her mother's reconciliation scene was handled as well. I didn't bawl my eyes out though, never one to cry when watching dramas ;)

Anyway, I'm guessing they want to make the best use of Yeon Jung-hoon's cameo. They are finally going to tell us the back story of Ok Da-jung and her third husband in episode 11 (there's a hint of it in the preview). I wish they didn't drag it on for so long though. We had him appearing in the preview in episode 9 and they are not even meeting till 2 episodes later. He's like, just hanging around in the background.

I also cried with the scene at the station. It was so touching because both women are trying to be strong and grew distant because of it. Hopefully mother and daughter will strengthen their relationship in the future.

This drama has been a pleasant surprise, I am getting more and more invested in the story. The cast is good and maybe the best thing is that they are dealing with real problems of every day life. As a female office worker, I also feel very close to the women in the show, all the sexual harassment, the blaming on women that try to be successful at work...I am cheering for them here :)
