Making rock music with office supplies in new Chief Kim teaser

Amongst the new round of dramas coming out this January, Chief Kim sure looks like it’ll be at the top when it comes to wackiness! In the latest clips released to promote the upcoming KBS drama, Namgoong Min (Beautiful Gong Shim) is shown at his comedic best. His romantic interest, played by Nam Sang-mi (Joseon Gunman), also displays her funny side as they struggle with boredom in the office and find creative ways to have some fun.

The workplace comedy is about a gangster accountant with incredible street smarts and a special knack for making money. He turns legit when he joins the TQ Group as a middle manager, only to learn that the company is on the verge of bankruptcy. According to the plot synopsis, Chief Kim is supposed to lead the company out of dire financial instability and back into solvency. But from the teasers, I get the impression that he’s more likely to lead his work-weary band of employees out the office door and into the nearest pub!

In the first teaser, some employees sigh, and some slump over, all fatigued with the boredom from daily office tasks. But then Chief Kim riles them up into doing a musical number, and the atmosphere perks up with people jamming out on their computer keyboards, shaking their pencil cans, and throwing paper about, all to a great beat. Their conductor Chief Kim throws up his hands in a big crescendo, but then someone claps, announcing dinner time and bringing him back down to reality.

For the second teaser, the office is in a dead lull, with everyone eager to leave but being required to stay late. The captions say, “To all of you out there, still working overtime… you’re tired right?” Then we see people in their most frustrating work moments, as the captions read, “After sacrificing your body and even your pride, this is one to stick it to the man!”

A scene of Namgoong Min barreling toward a protester against the company shows him throwing his body at a moving car to save her from harm’s way. And we hear Junho (Memory), who plays a higher-level department head, stating his reasons for hiring Chief Kim: “We need someone with guts and complete loyalty, whom we can use and throw away without worrying about the consequences.”

A series of stills showing scenes from the drama were also released recently. In one, Nam Sang-mi wears a softball uniform because her character was a star player when she was younger. Namgoong Min is also seen in a couple other stills in various ridiculous poses, including kneeling on top of a boardroom table in front of a row of stern-looking men, and flailing in the air in a chokehold from one of his gangster acquaintances.

I wonder how ratings will turn out for the prime-time shows — I’m curious to see the three-way battle between office comedy Chief Kim, mystery thriller Missing 9, and much-anticipated sageuk Saimdang, Light’s Diary. Wednesday-Thursday drama Chief Kim begins airing on January 25, after Naked Fireman ends its run.

Namgoong Min has been changing his looks from show to show lately. It is refreshing to some and confusing to others. I missed his old looks.

Oooh, this looks like it's gonna be a really fun ride! I'm fond of silly office shows (The Office and Parks and Rec, anyone?), and this is full of silly!

But man, Namgoong Min. I love you, but why that hairstyle/hair color combo? Just why?

I have a sinking feeling in my stomach that we are only going to see more celebrities with that color. Rain has the same style and color in his newest music video. As much as I love him, he doesn't pull it off any better....

He might as well join the beige family in Missing 9 and blend in perfectly. Lol.

That aside, Namgoong Min rocks the silly vibe!

I've said it once and I'll say it again ..... just where oh where is Gong Shim's wig??..... Anything to change Namgoong Min's hair color in this drama.

Hair color aside, this drama could potentially be a lot of wacky fun.

Why is everyone complaining about his hair?
I know that's not as good as he was in Remember.
But still better than he was in Pretty Ugly.
Hes aso playing a weird character so that's maybe because of that.
He looks good anyway! Looking forward to see it.
For the ratings... Well I'm not 100% sure about that.
The plot sounds good and the actors are great too.
There's a big competition between those 3 dramas which are airing on the same time.
I'll expect, Saimdang the first, Chief Kim the second and Missing 9 the third. (This is my hope actually tbh)
I hope Chief Kim surprises me with great comedy and writing of course. I don't want this to be a flop at all.

His hair was so perfect in Remember, I wish he was styled like that in here too.. The hair color is just meh..

But sometimes it is so weird that, even when you dont like the hair style, once you start watching the drama and understand the depth of the character, your mind will slowly adjust to that crappy hairstyles and weird fashion trends. You wont give a damn about those stuff, once you get involved in the story.

This has happened to me in many dramas. First, D-Day lead guy's messy perm, and Beautiful Gong Shim-Gongshim's wig and many more.I absolutely disliked these weird fashion styles but just grown in to you later once you watch it. So let me just give it a try here too . Nam goongmin is a great actor and i dont want to miss his works.

But the one who looks the best with this blonde hair is Mr Grim Reaper. ;)

I'm excited for Namgoong Min to have another quirky lead role. I kinda like the hair, but that might change once I see it on my TV screen. As for weird fashion, I'M frustrated by the ridiculously high hemlines on pants for both sexes. In most dramas now, WHY is everyone wearing pants with hemlines 3" above their ankles???? I hate that! Okay, okay, calm down. Everything else is great. I am thoroughly enjoying dramas beyond that one irritating distraction.
