I don't remember seeing an announcement but it seems to be on today, new catalog title it looks like. Seems like a Korean version of Hakken no Hinkaku "Pride of the Temp" one of my favorite J-dramas!

Yeah, kind of stealthy, huh? Maybe there will be an announcement soon.

I think I"ll probably give this one a try--once I settle down into new-season anime viewing, and can find some time for drama.

Oops, I meant "Pride of the Temp", not price!

I watched the first episode today. It's good! I'm going to have to show some discipline to not marathon it (at least not this weekend) as I've got other things to do, including anime to catch up on. But oh, I really want to see more of this show.

I was a little surprised by the beginning and end of the episode because

However, those two "bookends" provide a nice sense of wanting to figure out the whole story, and increased my interest in the show.

Is anyone else watching this--you, hpulley? What do you think?

If you are not watching this and have not watched this, please do yourself a favor and give it a try. (Then come back here and tell us what you think.)

ETA: Just finished episode 4. It's definitely moving away from the comedy into the drama (with comic moments), with hints of romance and rivalries, and we're wondering exactly what is her connection with that event witnessed in the first episode
And just what/who is she?

It took me a while to get through just 4 episodes because even though I was enjoying each episode, I was being busy with other things. However, it's episode 4 that's really put the hook in--and I suspect I'll now be doing what I typically do with KDramas--gulp it down as fast as I can, setting many other things aside.

Sorry Gintama (the catalog anime I was starting to work my way through in spare moments), you'll have to wait.

ETA: Final bump for The Queen of Office. I just finished it and recommend it. It was a really good mix throughout of comedy and drama and some romance, with characters that were neither perfect and innocent nor perfectly evil. It also did a really good job throughout revealing Ms. Kim's backstory little by little. And for once I didn't mind the epilogue.
