Kim Dong-wook cast in new MBC social satire drama

by tccolb


A new drama is in the works for MBC, called Special Labor Supervisor Jo, and actor Kim Dong-wook (The Guest, Radiant Office) has been confirmed for the leading role.

Kim Dong-wook will play the main character, Jo Jin-gab. Although he appears to be indifferent to the world, he is actually a pure-hearted, hard-working, and honest person. At times hot-tempered and meddlesome, he is also motivated by a strong sense of justice which helps him to stand strong against his opponents.

He had once been a promising judo athlete in the past, but was forced to quit after trying to file a complaint against a fixed match. He then attempted to become a judo trainer, but it didn’t last as he was unable to control his quick temper. Deciding to turn his life around, he then studied hard and made it all the way to a level 9 civil servant. His goal had simply been to obtain a full-time and secured government position. However, after he is assigned as supervisor to the Ministry of Employment and Labor, everything changes.

The director is PD Park Won-gook (Ruler–Master of the Mask), but it’s the writer that has my attention — Kim Ban-di, the writer for Angry Mom.

Like Angry Mom, Special Labor Supervisor Jo will also be examining current social issues in South Korea. While the former was about corruption within the educational sphere, the latter will be using a satirical lens to look at the various personalities and elitism that Kim Dong-wook’s character encounters through his work as a civil servant.

Kim Dong Wook and Park Se Young will be starring together in an upcoming drama, while actress Seol In Ah is still in talks to join.

The two will be starring in “Special Labor Inspection Team” (literal title). The drama is a social satire about a civil servant who puts his apathetic, easygoing attitude above all else. The civil servant is appointed as a labor inspector in the Ministry of Employment and Labor and sets out to punish the evil power players of society. It is written by writer Kim Ban Di, who previously wrote “Angry Mom,” and directed by producing director Park Won Gook, who previously directed “Drama Festival – Turning Point” and “Ruler: Master of the Mask.”

Kim Dong Wook will be starring as Jo Jin Gap. Jo Jin Gap is a former judo athlete who was forced to quit when he protested an unfair call during a match. He used his experience to become a fitness teacher, but was kicked out again after being unable to hold his temper in front of the director’s son. Eventually, after passing the difficult level nine civil servant exam, he settles for a safe career as a civil servant. However, when he becomes a labor inspector for the Ministry of Employment and Labor, he decides to butt heads with the influential who take advantage of their power.




Kim Kyung Nam has confirmed his appearance as a former disciples Cheon Deok-gu, who is a secret investigator of Cho Jin-kap (Min Dong-wook) at MBC's "Special Labor Supervisor Jo".


Cho Jin-gap, who was a teacher during his school days, and Chun Deok Gu, who reunited in 10 years, are expected to show up as courageous investigators of Cho Jin-gap and brave against the myriads of worlds. (Google translation)
