Rescuing the boss in office fantasy drama Happy to Die
Baek Jin-hee (Let’s Eat 3) returns to the small screen as an ordinary office worker for KBS drama Happy to Die, adapted from a webtoon by the same name. However, this is no ordinary office drama: She realizes that she’s in a time loop where the day repeats unless she saves her supercilious, unreasonable boss from sudden (and sometimes comical) death.
As can be seen in the poster, her boss, played by Kang Ji-hwan (Children of a Lesser God), smiles gleefully as Baek Jin-hee carries him Bodyguard-style and swears to protect him without mercy. That must be a tough promise to make, because she’s the one who wants to kill her detestable boss the most. In an attempt to protect him from all the others who hate him, she begins a project to reform her boss and rid him of his unlikeability.
Stills of both Baek Jin-hee and Ryu Hyun-kyung (20th Century Boy and Girl) have been released. Ryu plays a working mom who has a great personality. While working at her company, she basically experiences the entire range of human emotions. Well, if Kang Ji-hwan can be killed off that many times in one day, I’m sure that the emotional extremes of the employees can’t be too healthy. Hopefully, both Ryu and Baek can calm them down.
KBS Wednesday-Thursday drama Happy to Die begins airing on November 7.
