Both are office dramas and both revolve around temporary employees and their struggles. Incomplete life is more serious and it was done better (it has some philosophical reasoning related to Baduk(Go)), still both of them are really enjoyable. Actually, Incomplete Life has almost a perfect story so if you liked Radiant Office, you'll surely like this one.

Both are office romance kind of story, and the lead characters' chemistry is over the top. It's extremely great. Both stories get even better as they progress. The love line is never forced, and it will make you feel very warm as well.

Both stories have the main guy as the boss, and the main girl as an employee. Both the bosses are not unreasonably evil – they're pretty warmhearted, in fact. Also, boss female employees are not weak and stupid human beings, although the lead males (the bosses) usually have the upper hand and better family/education background.

    This is such a fun drama to keep coming back to each week!! The slow build up is the perfect way to do it for these perfectly imperfect characters!

    I'm starting to like Ho Won. I love her attitude in the latest eps I sense 'life' in her and I love it! I also like the way Woo Jin gradually developed as a character. I only wish they had given more focus on Ki Taek and his life I really like his character the most. The drama is about to end and I didn't get enough insight on his character :(

      Jeesh you like read my thoughts about the doctor! I keep thinking he's bad then I am like IS HE REALLY? and just what is his intentions toward Ho Won..I think with everything going on..that is one of the main questions I want answered.

      This drama has made the wheels in my head spin like no other. I am continually trying to figure out what is "really" going on. Some people are easier to read than others, but the doctor is the most complex of the bunch...It is obvious he knows/understands more than he is letting on...Right now I am not only wondering about his intentions toward the company and ho won ...I am also curious what will happen when his father wakes up from his hospital bed (or dies)....Timing is everything.. His dad was looking at Woo Jin to take over the company...Are they related or connected in some way, or is it just an ethical choice...why does the doctors father hate him so much??? who is the real bad guy here??? There is so much on the table that could go wrong, so much mystery still...I really wish this was a 20-24 ep drama. sigh.

    I don't understand why you say there's no romance ajdhaslkjshf ;_; It's over half way through the entire series now and since that point our two main leads have been feeling good towards each other. I love his subtle manliness and her "sweet little girl" kind of role in their relationship, yet she stands up for herself and not whiny or clingy. Both of them are in the state of "something" aka Korean kind of flirting heheheh. Watching episode 12 and I love their little interactions so much.

    I rather dislike those dramas that the two main leads fall in love completely by episode 10 and the rest of the series is about solving the sub plots. I usually drop dramas around that time. It's like we watch dramas to escape reality and we watch them for those cute moments, so I don't find myself wanting to continue towards the ugly side problems at the end of most series. Like, why would I? They're already in love!

      I am so with you! I love their "something" relationship right now. And I'm really loving how the romance is not the focal point here, but more a natural progression from the strong friendship the leads are building now. They are already completely adorable! I think it helps to allow the characters more growth in other areas so that they fall in love after helping each other to find the best versions of themselves. That's romance.

      That is so true :) I love that each of them are literally making each other better. The character development in this drama is no joke!

    This is such a brilliant script, smart and funny...There is a reason why the rating have grown in Korea...
    The romance isn't the foundation the story, rather a graceful thread woven through it. It's not a hot and steamy story...No, this is a genuine romance that is found through the leads sincere thoughtfulness for one another and not in the hookup... It is fitting that the progression is slower, they have only known one another 2 months....He is her boss, who is also several years older than her...Between her illness and the company politics, they are growing in a level of appreciation for one another's true selves...(something neither have not experienced much of). They are also changing one another for the better.... Ho Won is growing in her self-confidence with Woo jin's support, and his brash exterior softens not only as he sees her struggles but also as she rises above every challenge.
    I adore all of the glances, sweet comments, they way they protect and think about each other... 4 more glorious episodes to go...I hope we see more from this writer in the future...So well done!

    I am really enjoying this drama, I think the story is great. But I am having a problem it is the lead actress for 12 episodes I just don't know what it is..sometimes I think her acting is horrible sometimes I think it suits the story perfect I go back and forth I don't find her annoying but I don't find her great either.. I am just bleh..I love everything else about this drama I just don't know how I feel about her though.. Any thoughts?

    I like romance too, but I think that sometimes it is good to have something different that it is not hardly concentrated on romance. I mean, dramaland is full of rom-com or rom-action or romance stuff. So, I think that is it good that they are concentrating more on human/office relationship, friendship and so on.
    Just my opinion obv :)
