Park Ki-woong, Han Ji-eun confirmed for office-revenge comedy Old School Intern
Park Ki-woong, Han Ji-eun
Workplace comedy Old School Intern has confirmed the casting of Han Ji-eun (Be Melodramatic) and Park Ki-woong (Rookie Historian Gu Hae-ryung). Old School Intern is the story of what happens when a man meets his old-fashioned, stubborn former boss again. But this time, he’s the one in upper management at a trendy ramyun company, and his boss comes as his lowly senior intern. Park Hae-jin (Forest) is set to play the main character, and Kim Eung-soo (Chief of Staff) his titular Old School Intern.
Han Ji-eun will also be playing an intern in the marketing team at the ramyun company, alongside Kim Eung-soo. She’s an emotionally volatile, spontaneous and unique character. In one moment, she seems hard-working and loyal to the company, but in the next, she goes astray, and then this repeats in cycles. She’ll be relatable to those who know the realities of working life.
Meanwhile, Park Ki-woong will play the arrogant jerk CEO of Junsu Foods that owns the ramyun company. Although technically his title is CEO, he’s nothing more than a puppet figurehead who has no power to do anything without the permission of his father, the chairman and major shareholder of Junsu Foods. To everyone around him, Park Ki-woong seems cool and unconcerned, but to Park Hae-jin he shows his claws. Although he seems untouchable and impolite, there’s a clumsiness in his character that makes him bark up the wrong tree at times.
MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday miniseries Old School Intern will begin airing in May.
