I’m going to be so sad when Office Girls. This drama has been my steady companion for months now, always good for a laugh and some swooning once a week. It’ll likely end at episode 23, though TTV will preempt one episode this month since it’s Lunar New Year that week. Part of me thinks Kai Er has been wreaking way too much havoc, but then I realize she’s done no real damage since Zi Qi and Xing Ren’s sincere feelings for each other has helped them resolve every little misunderstanding. I cannot wait to see Kai Er get her just rewards, and I hope it comes via Stallone looking out for his precious Le Le. I do think the truth about Zi Qi’s identity is a major issue, and I hope the drama allots time for the couple to deal with it, and what it means going forward. I don’t think it means anything, since Zi Qi’s dad wants his son to earn the right to run the department store. OG would be a truly worthwhile drama if it finds a way to not just deliver great emotional catharsis for the OTP, but also provide a fitting conclusion for the work place issues.
