off to work we go! May 1 is labour day in many parts of the world. does it seem like kdramaland inevitably covers the same professions that it could be a genre in itself? hahahah...what are your favourite chaebol/lawyer/police/doctor/loan shark dramas? where there are any interesting industries that you saw covered in a drama? what are your favourite professions?

 

celebrate labour day by nominating and discussing your favourite work places in kdramaland!

Chaebol ruled!

 

Because they should be only belong to few percents in the world, and the rest of us is just commoner. 

 

Jo Joong Won in Master Sun looks quite free to me and just busy chasing off ghost and played with his hands. 

 

He owns Kingdom shopping mall, fit perfectly to the bill @Lmangla :joy:

LOL... this for me is the most difficult poll to vote on so far.

 

Ideally, I want to be a chaebol of course. Lots of money to spend, nice clothes to wear, good food to eat... but I admire the works of doctors and lawyers/prosecutors, and enjoy the thrills and challenges that police/detectives face while in the field, be it life threatening or not... so yeah, too difficult... I think I'm not taking the poll this time.... :tounge_xd:

 

Btw, maybe there should be a vote for celebrities/idols as well since we see a lot of those in kdramas too :lol:

hahahah... @cenching @sushilicious @Lawyerh  ~ just thought of naming the top five... but please go ahead and name the most common professions in kdramaland as well as ones you are bored of... feels like characters inevitably fall into these set jobs in dramaland. it is funny. doesn't it seem like there is at least one parent who owns a restaurant where grilled beef is served? :lol:

PHJ "worked" as a Priest in Man X Man....#WinkWink

 

Add.

I would say a Spy is a "dream" job in dramaland. Rarely see ugly spies....99% of them are hot and cool with nice wardrobes....They are lethal and macho...

kekekek... think if we had to have a profession, it would definitely be chaebol -- nice clothes! food!... doctors work too much and besides do you really want to do surgery and see all that blood?.. :sweatingbullets:.. loan sharks is too much colour suits while police work is dangerous... would your mouth hurt from talking so much as a lawyer?... so I am choosing chaebol.

 

.. you are right about idols. didn't strike me at all.... these days there seem to be a lot of secretaries/assistants these days who are close by to have romance with -- you would think folks would be sick of seeing the same person for so many years. where was all those sparks for so many years? :tounge_xd:

in real life, good looking spies would be a problem because people would notice and remember you! hahahahah... so you would technically have to be average looking and ordinary if you are a spy no?

I would say it depends upon the mission...:glasses: If the spy is uses to seduces an enemy (Honey Trap) or to diverts some attentions obviously he/she needs to be good looking....But for those to be plants deep inside, most likely ordinary looking is better.....

and throw stuff at people like drivers, assistants and cooks -- who will be kind enough to clean up after you? hahahaha... wonder if they are so bratty because they are so bored in life. like there is nothing to look forward to the next day? is there a spoilt brat daughter kind in kdramaland who is actually happy and gets the love of her life?

@Lmangla hmm probably not that kind of ill-mannered brats :grimace: i just want to fly to Hawaii for suntan and surfing, Hong Kong for dimsum, France for art.. have the whole shopping mall as my pretty clothes wardrobe.. drive in luxurious sportscar.. stay in different vacation beach houses.. parties with lots of handsome oppas.. and waste my life away :tounge_xd:

well, i guess they lack nothing except family ties and true love.. but if they are in their teens and early 20’s they have all the time to waste?

 

otherwise, i dun mind a joseon era kind of professionals.. like some trade master or something? there is a new upcoming kdrama of this plot isnt it? i forgot the title..

As lawyer myself (my soompi nickname, ok throw me that eggs lol) I would say the job does look glamour. Wearing expensive suit & bag, argumentative and smooth talker, this are what commonly perceived by people i guess. 

 

On the other not so bright side, those plenty of legal papers could be a big challenge. Word A can easily become B if youre not careful reading & understand it. 

 

Thats why i do admired people whos in this industry. And eventhough i like chaebol for the dreamy side, in drama i do enjoyed lawyer & prosecutor story a lot. Hence my nickname is lawyerh!
