Hello sorry for the late response    
CJH and KJJ enlisted on the same day but they had basic training in different locations.  After six weeks of training, news of CJH’s knee injury came out.  KJJ mentioned sending a letter to CJH. Probably he did it after hearing about CJH’s unfortunate incident.  I’m happy to know that their friendship still goes on.

L calculates his revenge in Numbers

by solstices

 

Well, it looks like I may have to eat my words. MBC’s upcoming drama Numbers: Watchdogs in a Concrete Jungle isn’t just about math after all — murder just got added to the mix. Am I thrilled about this latest development? Not entirely, since I was hoping for something along the lines of Misaeng. Am I intrigued by the infinite (heh) possibilities this brings to the table, though? Most definitely.

The drama’s first teaser opens with our protagonist Jang Ho-woo, played by L (Secret Royal Investigator). Awakening on the cold, hard ground on a snowy night, he’s faced with his worst nightmare. His loved one — presumably a parent, judging by the gray hair — lies dead next to him, bleeding out from a head wound. Above them, up on a ledge and just out of sight, a man watches.

 

Is he the murderer? Is he merely a witness? We don’t know just yet, but Ho-woo is determined to track him down. He’s found one lead he can follow, and he’s not about to lose its scent. And so, Ho-woo steels himself, puts on a brave face, and gets himself employed at Taeil Accounting Firm.

That’s how he meets the senior manager Han Seung-jo, played by Choi Jin-hyuk (Zombie Detective). Right off the bat, the two don’t get along. Our first glimpse of their interaction consists of Seung-jo grabbing Ho-woo’s collar and slamming him up against a wall, and judging by Ho-woo’s furious glare, the antagonism is mutual.

We don’t see them in this teaser, but rounding out the cast are Choi Min-soo (Extracurricular) as Taeil’s vice president; Yeonwoo (The Golden Spoon) as Ho-woo’s direct superior; and fellow Infinite member Lee Sung-yeol (Time of Memory) as a deal partner director at Taeil.

As much as I love a good mystery, I’m hoping the accounting firm setting doesn’t get reduced to a mere backdrop. Being the only high school graduate in an office of bachelor’s degree holders, Ho-woo already has an underdog story all laid out for him. In the midst of solving the root cause of that devastating tragedy, I’d like to see Ho-woo overcome the odds and work his way up the corporate ladder.

Directed by Kim Chil-bong (The Second Husband) with scripts written by Jung Ahn and Oh Hye-seok, Numbers: Watchdogs in a Concrete Jungle premieres in June.

The second teaser video for MBC's upcoming Friday-Saturday drama, Numbers: Watchdogs in the Building Forest, has been released.

Numbers: Watchdogs in the Building Forest is an office drama that revolves around Jang Ho Woo, an accountant with a high school diploma who stands up against a renowned accounting firm to fight corruption. In a manner that is both typical and atypical of accountants, he strives to uphold justice through his unconventional manner by exploiting the power of numbers. The drama boasts a talented cast, including Kim Myung Soo (INFINITE's L), Choi Jin HyukChoi Min Soo, and Yeonwoo.

The teaser video begins with the tagline, "The story of accountants who live and die by numbers," followed by Han Je Kyun (Choi Min Soo) - the deputy representative of Taeil Accounting Firm - standing in the spotlight confronting a crowd.  He says, "Welcome to becoming a member of Taeil Accounting Firm, the best and the most powerful firm in the country". 

Furthermore, the teaser video ignites interest by introducing the challenges faced by Jang Ho Woo (Kim Myung Soo) in the firm. With feelings of pride and determination, Jang Ho Woo confidently proclaims, "I'm not a weird person, I'm an accountant!" while proudly displaying his employee ID card. Accompanying Ho Woo in Taeil Accounting Firm are a seasoned accountant and Han Je Kyun's (Choi Min Soo) son Han Seung Jo (Choi Jin Hyuk), and his dedicated supervisor Jin Yeon Ah (Yeonwoo). 

Particularly intriguing is the complex relationship between Jang Ho Woo and Han Seung Jo. Despite their seemingly vigilant attitudes towards each other, Ho Woo's inquiry about why Han Seung Jo keeps interfering with his plans and Seung Jo's response, "Because you'll get hurt if you stay there," hints at the budding bromance. In addition, Ho Woo's relationship with his supervisor Yeon Ah kindles curiosity about the intricate dynamics among these diverse and compelling characters.

The short teaser portrays the accountants in the drama employing their numerical expertise, some attempting to conceal corruption, while others to uphold justice. Their strategic and intellectual prowess, coupled with their unwavering determination, draws viewers into the intriguing world of Numbers: Watchdogs in the Building Forest.

The K-drama is slated to premiere in June. The exact release date is yet to be announced. Stay tuned!
