Premiere Watch: Special Labor Inspector Jo, Her Private Life
Two of the leads from The Guest are back on our screens, this time in slightly less horrifying and bloody roles.
Special Labor Inspector Jo
Time slot: Monday & Tuesday
Genre: Social satire, suspense
Episode count: 32 episodes (35 minute episodes)
Reasons to watch: Kim Dong-wook plays the titular Special Labor Inspector Jo, a national judo player-turned gym teacher-turned civil servant. In his youth and early in his career, his strong moral core and quick temper got him into trouble, and he began to keep his head down rather than fight against the world. But a job reassignment to the position of special labor inspector sees him encounter corruption and injustices on a near-daily basis–and reignites his fiery temper. With a renewed sense of purpose, Kim Dong-wook will battle to right the wrongs he encounters. He won’t have to fight alone though as he’ll have Kim Kyung-nam, Park Se-young by his side.
Her Private Life
Time slot: Wednesday & Thursday
Episode count: 16 episodes
Reasons to watch: Fangirl meets fanboy in the latest tvN rom-com. Park Min-young is a dedicated and professional art curator who brings her sense of dedication to her hobby–fangirling her favorite idol. She’s a total pro at fangirling and when the director of her art gallery, Kim Jae-wook, cottons onto he begins to dive into fandom culture himself. Along the way he starts to fall in love with Park Min-young, but he’s not the only one with feelings for her. His rival in love will be played by Ahn Bo-hyun, Park’s childhood friend and Olympic medalist judo player.
