Realism with a different dimension of empathy in ‘Only Without Going Crazy’

“On the Verge of Insanity” is drawing attention as it presents the essence of office works with different levels of empathy.

MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday drama “On the Verge of Insanity” (written by Jeong Do-yoon, directed by Choi Jeong-in, and produced by I.Will Media) was different from the beginning. He drew a wide range of sympathy by portraying their “funny and sad” reality to survive in the office jungle in a realistic and pleasant manner. N-year office workers on the decline of their lives past their dazzling youth. Those who used to be the main players of the company are already the top “hopeful retirement” in dealing with old people.

Viewers cried and laughed together at the sorrows of ordinary and familiar office workers who might be everywhere around us, perhaps me or family. Above all, Jeong Jae-young, Moon So-ri, and other professional actors, who are completely possessed by real-life workers, maximized their immersion. From the beginning, we looked into the secret of “Uncrazy” that captivated viewers.

# ‘Funny and sad’ reality real and fun! A restaurant with a picture of an office worker in his n-year career.

“Without Crazy,” which began as Jinha’s business department, which is at a crossroads of voluntary retirement due to the sale of its business department, caught viewers’ attention with a very realistic story. The production team said earlier, “It is about the persistence of those who are being pushed out of the company. “The charm is that it is not always salty, but it is a combination of episodes that anyone can sympathize with and cry together.” Choi Ban-seok (played by Jung Jae-young), who survived the sharp wind of layoffs, was dismissed to the personnel team as he was not out of favor with team leader Han Se-kwon (played by Lee Sang-yeop) at the Changwon division. Choi Ban-seok, who chose to hold out by activating his unique matchmaker temperament despite unconvincing personnel changes, gave him a pleasant catharsis amid bitter reality. Attention is focusing on the story of those who will go through the tough office jungle with their own way of survival.

# Overindulgent acting party! Empathy level 10,000. “A Great Acting Restaurant.”

The performance of the master actors who completed the Han Myeong-Electronics family, which changed the reality as it is, has become a “hot restaurant for acting” from the first episode. Jung Jae-young, who portrayed Choi Ban-seok, a developer of a crisis that was not in luck, and Dang Ja-young, a leader of the human resources team who endured the bitterness of reality for her goal, were very valuable. Lee Sang-yeop’s hard carry, which created Han Se-kwon, a “real-life villain” in any company, was also intense. Kim Ga-eun, who added vitality with her wild charm contrast to her haughty visuals, as well as actors such as Gu In-sang, Park Won-sang, Park Sung-geun, Cha Chung-hwa, and Cho Bok-rae, who showed off their real-life aura and caused overindulgence, maximized their naturalness and completed their daily lives. The synergy of other acting masters in “Jjamba (Vibe from experience)” will continue to shine.

The more you get tangled, the more fun you are! There’s a variety of “character restaurants” around us.

Choi Ban-seok and Dang Ja-young (Moon So-ri) came down to the Changin business division for each reason. On top of that, Seo Na-ri (played by Kim Ga-eun), who is divorced but operates a strange rival mode to Dang Ja-young, Han Se-kwon’s everything, attracted the drama’s interest.
Furthermore, the chemistry of Choi Ban-seok, a senior manager of the development team, Noh Byung-guk (information), Paeng Soo-gon (Park Won-sang), and Gong Jeong-pil (QA) team leader (Quality Assurance Team) stood out. Interesting relationships such as Shin Jung-ah (Cha Cheong-hwa), Han Seung-gi (Cho Bok-rae), the secret roommate of Dang Ja-young, and Shin Han-soo (Kim Nam-hee), the ace of QA team and Choi Ban-seok, are expected to continue. At the end of the broadcast, a sharp wind was expected to blow once again in the business department, and Dang Ja-young began a change of attitude and formed a strategic symbiotic relationship with Choi Ban-seok. Attention is focusing on whether Dang Ja-young will be able to succeed in the secret mission of the headquarters and what changes the Han Myeong-electronics family will make.

MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday miniseries “On the Verge of Insanity” will air at 9 p.m. on the 30th.
