Misaeng will give you the opportunity to see the real world of being a professional, the battle for success, the struggles to climb high to the corporate world, the combat of everyday’s life to get the job done, and of course to help you ponder on your forgotten dreams.
You will truly enjoy this drama as much as you will learn from all the character’s strength and weaknesses, individually and by a team. This is not only about work, but exploring their personalities, current lives, and how they managed to settle and learn with incomplete lives.
Recommended to watch this show with realism and optimism.
Overall Rating: 10/10
