5 Things I Loved About “Misaeng” Episodes 11 & 12

By in posted Oct Comments off

What a week at One International!

In episodes 11 and 12 of “Misaeng” Manager Oh (Lee Sung Min) is finally promoted, we get another new face on Sales Team 3, and Geu Rae (Im Siwan) makes a bold and radical move on behalf of the team – all of which should be good things. But in the corporate world, you don’t work as an individual, and the consequences of an action or inaction have a ripple effect across the whole company. So even if we celebrated a win for the Team!GoodGuys last week by revealing Section Chief Park’s internal corruption, Sales Team 3 can’t rest easy because the fallout from exposing one of their own has ramifications that I don’t think anyone could have imagined.

Here are the 5 things I loved most about “Misaeng” episodes 11 & 12

Misaeng” keeps knocking me out with it’s weekly offerings of great acting performances, tight writing, lovely shots and editing, and heartwarming stories about characters we’ve grown to really care about. This week at the office was a tough one for everyone – Young Yi is still dealing with being on a team that abuses and under-appreciates her, Baek Ki has second thoughts about staying at One International, and Sales Team 3 keeps getting dealt blow after disappointing blow. It’s a cut-throat world of business out there, and the biggest question of the week was “when is it too much?”
