I Hate Going To Work is a 12-episode workplace comedy drama starring Kim Dong-wan (Cheer up Mr Kim, 100 Days My Prince), Han Soo-yeon (Your Honour, Teacher Oh Nam Soon), Kim Kwan-soo (Touch Your Heart, First Kiss) & So Joo-yeon (My Healing Love, The Whispering). This is a slice-of-life office drama about people who don’t want to go to work, which will resonate with everyday office workers.
Kang Baek-ho (Kim Dong-wan) is a legend in the company for his high-speed promotion. He hates people who does not take things seriously. His interest is working late and working overtime on weekends. Yoon Hee-soo (Han Soo-yeon) is the person in-charge for the project for M Books’ store. A normal, everyday bookstore remodelled into the trendiest place that people in their 20s – 30s would like to frequent. She is a person who has a special relationship with Kang Baek-ho.
This drama will not be a story that feels distant and unrealistic. It is an everyday office drama that fits in to this era as it is happening around us. The core of the show is to happily unravel the realities of work boredom and heal the exhausting daily routine. If you are an office worker, you will definitely look forward to watching this!
I Hate Going To Work aired last year in the form of pilot program, showing the unreasonable situations of office workers in the company. Due to the high popularity and positive feedback, it was transformed into a full TV series.
