Ahahahah nice to see Ban Seok back in his natural habitat!      After that unexpected kiss he took more care with his appearance LoL. Using lip balm, cologne & a different colored check shirt

I like how the writer wrote Ja young`s role. I am glad that we saw how things  went before Ja Young made that decision to tell the CEO. So, she saw how Mr. No used her and than he never proposed her f

I loved when CBS played dirty with the fake vacuum cleaner and how he berated HSK inability to recognise his own product.   I'm surprised that I find JJY quite good looking - the longer hair

Jung Jae-yeong's appearance confirmed.

 

CIDZTYPSTTFVWB5WGR4KRGJ354.jpg

 

Actor Jung Jae-young is making a comeback with a survival office play with a different level of empathy through “Not Crazy”.

MBC's new Wednesday-Thursday miniseries, scheduled for the first broadcast in the first half of this year, (Director Geun-Hong Kim, play Do-yoon Do-yoon, and iWill Media) depicts the fierce survival of middle-aged workers struggling to survive in a turbulent workplace.

Above all, Jung Jae-young confirmed the appearance, raising expectations even more. There is a keen interest in the meeting between Jeong Jae-young and Moon Sori, two “deities of acting” who do not need explanation. The attention is also focused on the transformation of Jung Jae-young, who returned to MBC two years after the “Partners of Justice 2”.

 

Jae-young Jung plays the role of “Ban-seok Choi,” the developer of Hanmyeong Electronics' home appliance division. Choi Ban-seok is a veteran engineer who has a cold reason, a warm sensibility, and even greed for a child's gag. He survived the gust of job cuts that struck one person before, but after twists and turns, he crash landed on the personnel team. Ban-Seok Choi, who is ‘incognito (who does not know personnel affairs)’ is in danger of resetting 22 years of experience and efforts. He decides to recover rather than retire, and begins to endure with indomitable will. Here, he is entangled in an inevitable symbiotic relationship with Ja-young Dang (played by Moon Sori), the head of workaholic personnel team with his fierce will, and unfolds a hot survival period that cannot be sustained without being crazy.

Jung Jae-young to act opposite Moon Sori in midlife crisis office drama

by tineybeanie

 

 

msr_jjy1.jpeg

 

After months of negotiations, it’s been finally confirmed that Jung Jae-young (Partners for Justice, Duel) will join Moon Sori (The School Nurse Files) in upcoming MBC drama, No One But a Madman. It’s an office drama about a middle-aged man who struggles to survive in an ever-changing workplace.

 

Jung Jae-young plays the main character who is faced with a decision that many company employees are faced with at some point in their careers: the undesirable choice to resign, switch jobs, or be fired. He’s just a regular logical, warmhearted guy, who likes cracking dad jokes all the time.

Originally, he was a veteran engineer in the consumer electronics department of a large conglomerate. He manages to survive the mass layoffs that happened at his company, but he ends up in the personnel and human resources department, and everything he’s learned in his 22-year-long career becomes moot. The drama is set to show his story as he starts from zero again, under a tyrant-like workaholic team leader, played by Moon Sori.

 

Written by Jung Do-yoon (Witch’s Court) and directed by Kim Geun-hong (Welcome 2 Life), Wednesday-Thursday drama No One But a Madman will begin airing in the early half of this year on MBC.

There will probably be no romance in this one (romance between older couples would be a plus for me:D), but the storyline and cast have me waiting expectantly. True to life Workplace drama has a special place in my heart. I hope the story is good and stays good to the last episode!!

I have high expectations for this one. Moon So-ri seems to be quite selective with her projects and i trust in that.

In the play, Lim Hyun-soo played the role of So Sang-wook, deputy representative of the HR team at Hanmyung Electronics' Home Appliances Division. Sangwook likes to meet people, and is a person who becomes insatiable at the moment he doesn't even know. The HR team is well suited to his aptitude, so he learns steadily under Ja-young Dang (played by Moon Sori) and is looking forward to a chance for a promotion.
