First Impression: What do you think of the Chinese Remake of Misaeng, Ordinary Glory, with Mark Zhao and Bai Jing Ting?

Have you seen the original Kdrama Misaeng: Incomplete Life, which was based on the webtoon series by Yoon Tae Ho? I haven’t, but it was highly rated when it aired back in 2014! The original story synopsis: Since he was a child, the board game baduk has been everything to Jang Geu-rae. But when he fails at achieving his dream of becoming a professional baduk player, Geu-rae must leave his isolated existence and enter the real world armed with nothing but a high school equivalency exam on his resume. Through an acquaintance’s recommendation, he gets hired as an intern at One International, a large trading company.

There, Geu-rae meets his boss, manager Oh Sang-shik, who’s a workaholic and has a warm personality; fellow intern Ahn Young-yi, who attracts her colleagues’ ire because of her impressive educational credentials and by being extremely competent at any task; and Jang Baek-gi, a geeky co-worker whose anxious nature masks his inner ambition. Geu-rae learns to navigate and adapt to corporate culture, with baduk as his guide. [Wiki]

    Oh my gosh is it finally airing!! I was a huge fan back when Misaeng first came out. I still remember how it catapulted the cast to fame while airing.

    I’m also a big fan of Mark Zhao and Bai Jing Ting, so I’ve been dying to see it air.

    It’ll be interesting to see the Chinese take on it because there are some cultural differences between Korea and China. However, the worka-holic nature of both countries is quite similar.
