This looks like a promising enough office place situational comedy, and one that isn’t currently all over the networks like medical or legal dramas. Upcoming KBS Wed-Thurs drama Chief Kim released first stills recently showcasing male leads Namgong Min as the titular Chief Kim and idol-actor Junho of 2PM as his office rival. A year ago this drama would have gotten way more attention as coming from the screenwriter of Good Doctor, except his followup Blood was dreadfully bad in new and innovative ways.
This one looks like another directional change for the screenwriter, taking on a work place drama where the male lead is an enforcer for a loan shark gang turned office accountant sectional chief and leading the charge to turn a company around. Namgong Min has been playing too many baddies recently but has got a great understated comedic timing. This time his romantic lead is Nam Sang Mi, returning from marital hiatus, with Jung Hye Sung as the second female lead. Chief Kim premieres on January 25th.
