Premiere Watch: On the Verge of Insanity
Time slot: Wednesday & Thursday
Episode count: 16
This title and cast immediately made me think my next dose of melo had arrived — but no! On the Verge of Insanity is actually a workplace drama that sounds more slice-of-life than anything else. Jung Jae-young, Moon Sori, and Lee Sang-yub (yay!) play employees at an electronics corporation who undergo many changes in work and life, all with a side helping of midlife complexity. For me, workplace dramas can either be really good and cathartic, or they can be a little too real and lose their appeal. We’ll have to see how this one shakes out.
