Park Hae-jin shows Kim Eung-soo who’s boss in new teaser for Old School Intern
MBC has released its first video teaser for their upcoming office comedy Old School Intern, featuring lead actors Park Hae-jin (Forest) and Kim Eung-soo (Chief of Staff).
Park Hae-jin stars in the drama as a man who becomes reunited with his old boss Kim Eung-soo, but their roles have now been reversed. Early in Park’s career, he had had a miserable time working under Kim and putting up with Kim’s old school ways. But now, Park Hae-jin is the one sitting in the boss chair and he’s gleeful about getting his revenge when Kim Eung-soo shows up to work as one of the new interns.
The newly released teaser starts with a close-up of Park Hae-jin in a dream-like sequence. Twinkling music plays in the background and a white-suited Park is bathed in glowing light underneath a shower of pink flowers. As Park Hae-jin preens for the camera, we hear, and soon see, Kim Eung-soo off to the side. He gestures and rants, “Young people these days, there isn’t even one thing that they can do. Every time you ask them to do something, it’s always a complaint about how they can’t or don’t know. In my day, even if no one taught me how, I would take the initiative to figure it out and get it done well. I’m your elder, how dare you blink your eyes like that when your elder is talking to you.”
As the camera slowly pulls back to show the full scene, we see Park Hae-jin still basked in light and sitting comfortably in a posh armchair by a tall vase of flowers. In comparison, Kim Eung-soo sits kneeled amid a pile of ramyun boxes with a large doll of the ramyun company’s mascot propped up behind him. After initially ignoring Kim, Park Hae-jin finally glances sideways at Kim Eung-soo at the end of the rant. Kim quickly bows his head in submission as soon as they make eye contact and the teaser comes to an end.
Writing for the drama is Shin Sora and directing will be helmed by PD Nam Sung-woo (Kill It, Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju).
