Chief Kim also known as Good Manager is a workplace comedy. This is the first non-romantic Kdram I watched. Actually I was hoping that there’d be some romance, kahit slight lang. Haha! But on the later episodes, tama lang din na walang masyadong romance yung plot. It’s not the right feel.
Cha Tae Hyun was first offered the role and thank goodness he declined coz Namgoong Min is just perfect as Chief Kim. I saw Namgoong sa Beautiful Gong Shim and he was amazing there. Bagay sa kanya yung medyo comedic na mga characters, yung tipong tatanga-tanga pero sobra smart pala.
So dito, Chief Kim here is an accountant for a gangster. On the sideline, he was also embezzling from his boss. His boss threw him out coz medyo na-threaten sya sa authority ni Chief Kim over his people. So Chief Kim had to apply at TQ Group’s Business Operations department. His initial goal was to embezzle enough money for him to move abroad. Things got complicated as he became embroiled in office politics. He saw the corporate corruption and how it affected employees.
