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]

Began airing 9/4!

Wang Qian Yuan versus bad guy Lu Han in mini thriller webdrama Sisyphus

Sisyphus (在劫难逃) is one of the many mini thriller webdramas created by Qiyi in the past several months. Wang Qian Yuan plays a police officer, however, his life is shattered when his daughter was murdered, forcing him to resign from the force. A new murder case drops evidence that might be related to his daughter’s death and our cop is entangled back into the case with a new villain (Lu Han) in town. Looks like our officer will die too and the selling point is that he wakes up to the day before his death and is stuck in that moment in time, again and again. Interesting.

Airing 9/2!
