Go Ah-sung livens up the company meeting in Radiant Office posters
Two new posters for upcoming workplace comedy Radiant Office have been released. This MBC drama about grabbing a second chance at life stars Go Ah-sung (Heard It Through the Grapevine) as a probationary employee and Ha Suk-jin (1% of Anything) as her ill-tempered supervisor. It follows Go Ah-sung as she adopts a new attitude towards life when she discovers that she’s terminal, and the drama will be about her navigating her new corporate life filled with new friends and new challenges.
The heroine attempts suicide at the Han River because her life isn’t going as planned and finding a job is proving to be near impossible, but she runs into two other people trying to do the same. This is how she meets two of her future co-workers played by Hoya (Answer Me 1997) and Lee Dong-hwi (Entourage). Hoya is a timid mama’s boy who has a great resume but also an anxiety problem. On the other hand, Lee Dong-hwi is a failed repeat civil service exam student with ex-girlfriend issues. His ex who also works at the company will be played by Han Sun-hwa (Rosy Lovers). Eventually they all meet again when they enter the same company as new probationary employees under prickly marketing head Ha Suk-jin.
The first poster shows Go flashing a satisfied grin while lying on a meeting room desk. But the rest of her co-workers look like they’re in agony, especially Lee Dong-hwi whose body language speaks volumes, showing comedic pain. Ha Suk-jin looks angry at Go Ah-sung, but Kwon Hae-hyo’s (Jealousy Incarnate) I-can’t-deal-with-this-another-moment expression is the best. The copy reads: “Office rebellion of the underlings who act like the superiors!”
The second poster also takes place with Go Ah-sung on top of a meeting room desk, but this time she’s standing up with a determined look on her face and her finger pointed in the air, like she’s about to lead an office rebellion (or start a dance party). Everyone else around the table has expressions of dissatisfaction or boredom. But the comedy is in the copy — the letters all together read: “This family-like company.” However, if you take out the white letters and just keep the red ones, it reads: “shitty company.”
