I like this drama for several reasons:
1. For me this is the first drama where the character of (woman) lead actor is really strong and cool, also what is more imortant writers kept the individuality and speaciality of the character till the end. It was important to me, because in my opinion it is more realistic and people do not change so easily in real life, especialy when their traumatised with read moresomething.
2.I started watching it raw, I wanted just to try understand do I like it or not to watch it in the future, but I got addicted to it and even if I know only 3-4 words in korean, actors were playing so well that I didn't have hard time trying to understang what they were talking about. I mean their actions, emotions and face expresions were enough for me.
3.The story is unique and not repetitive even if it is a remake of japanese version. I tried to watch j-version but could not get used to actors.
In short it's definitely worth watching. It is refreshing, funny and wise drama.
First I'll start by saying this... I don't know how on earth this drama isn't one of the top dramas in MDL !!!! what's wrong with Asian Dramas fans?? how come the number of ppl who watched it is so little?? I really don't understand... :(
Story: Though it may seem your typical 16 ep romantic comedy k drama but it's really not, it is definitely not a typical K drama and read morethat's one of the reasons why I loved it. For once no evil characters no crazy insanely jealous characters no annoying love triangle and clingy characters... The story points out something very important in Korea "contract workers" and work environment... though the topic is serious they brought it out in a very comical way this drama was so funny I couldn't stop laughing not a single episode was boring... it's my first time finishing a romantic comedy drama in just two days because I watched none stop. They presented the story in a way that you understand how hard work environment while also laughing it out. I loved how they put it in a really funny amusing way I'm not a person who laughs so easily but this drama never failed to make me laugh out loud in each and every episode.
Acting: I'm totally in love with Miss Kim (Kim Hye Soo)... I've never seen this actress before but let me just say she really deserved the 1st place in critics evaluation for best actors... Miss Kim is my favorite female character ever made in K drama !! FOR ONCE not a push over weakling and a doormat for everyone character but rather strong, independent and super cool female character. This just proves that Queen of The Office is really not your typical K drama and Kim Hye Soo (Miss Kim) is worthy of your time trust me !!
Finally I would say it's a complete loss to anyone who haven't watched it yet and I do mean every word !!
In both shows the main leads, Chief Kim and Miss Kim, are not trusted by their coworkers, are behaving weird, but are very competent in their workfield. If in Chief Kim we know that Chief Kim has some ulterior motives to join the company, in Queen of Office Miss Kim with her mysterious ways gives always the impression she is hiding some big secret. The office comedy is in both shows amazing and the main characters brilliantly written.
Both are about a strong righteous female characters and their of fighting battles related to work while protecting everyone else. Both actresses are one of the best Kim Hye Soo & Lee Yo Won. Both dramas carry on strong message about work and life and gives importance to the supporting characters as well. Both dramas handle the comedy aspect very well and in both dramas the romance isn't essential but you can still feel it and it's represented in a very mature manner. Highly recommended.
hey even i thought the same
i thought its same old shit everything repetative and boring and i almost wanted to pass the drama and everything about it
but man , u really should not jodge
im really happy that i watched it
the story is unique and based on true event and its not one of those random romcoms plus the actors r also amazing and on whole , eventhough the romance lacked a little bit but however the story and the whole drama is very satisfying
its a good 9/10
Not sure how I missed this drama and laughs. A solid must see for Kdrama fans. If you're looking for a strong female lead and stomach laughing pains watch this series, all good actors and great chemistry with all roles. This series deals with a multitude of societal & workplace issues, thus easy to relate too.
It's was something new. I liked it, but it got a little repeattive cuz she always ends up saving da day. If you are looking for a crazy romance drama, this is not the drama for you although it is very funny. It was a 7 for me.
most unique korean drama i have ever seen, comedy all the way, not a gloomy momemnt untill the last episode, it was rly something new for me to see a female lead that aint crying every other episode,
very refreshing drama
