Super Rookie (Hangul신입사원RRSin-ip Sa-won; lit. "New Employee") is a 2005 South Korean television series starring Eric MunHan Ga-inOh Ji-ho, and Lee So-yeon. It aired on MBC from March 23 to May 26, 2005 on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 21:55 for 20 episodes. The workplace comedy is a satire on Korea's corporate culture and unemployment among the country's younger generation. It scored solid viewership ratings in the 20% range.

Plot

Kang Ho (Eric Mun) is just an average guy who got a college degree in physical education from a second-rate, provincial university. Disheveled, unskilled, and unemployed, Kang Ho has wasted most of his life kickboxing and reading comic books, much to the frustration of his family and friends who think he's just a freeloader. He sends his resumes to many companies, but nobody gives him a shot because he has no experience and no apparent prospects. One day, Kang Ho decides to apply to the same prestigious company that his handsome, successful classmate Bong-sam (Oh Ji-ho) works at. He completely bungles the interview process, but thanks to a computer error, he gets hired as the number one recruit. Struggling in a job he's totally unqualified for, Kang Ho gets by with his enthusiasm and street smarts. His co-workers include Bong-sam, an overachiever trapped by his own ambitions; Mi-ok, a mousy, bespectacled contract worker (or "temp") who was dumped by Bong-sam; and Hyun-ah, the privileged daughter of a company executive.

Super Rookie
신입사원
(Mar – May 2005)


who’s in it
Eric (Que Sera Sera, member of Shinhwa)
Han GaIn (Witch Yoo Hee)
Oh JiHo (Couple or Trouble, Queen of Housewives)
Lee SoYeon (Spring Waltz)

what’s it about
Eric is a floppy-haired, comic book readin,’ lovable loser who gets hired at a top tier suit and tie type of company that normally only hires the best talents in business…but how does he manage that, you ask? Well, gets his chance in a twist of fate, or more accurately, a technological glitch. In due course, he falls for Han GaIn, a mousy coworker who was recently taken to the relationship dumpster by ruthlessly hot, but also ruthlessly ambitious Oh JiHo. The drama follows Eric’s efforts to succeed at work using his affable personality and street cred despite the fact that he’s clearly in way over his unqualified head. 

commitment 
20 episodes

network
MBC

wildcard factor
Eric – floppy and dorky but totally watchable, suprisingly. There was something utterly charming about Eric’s useless everyman. I suppose there is a little bumble and stumble in all of us which makes his character an easy relate. If you like watching stuff about underdogs winning at the end of every hour, this one’s totally for you.

after the first episode
There’s a scene early on where Eric was moping on a bridge, mourning his failures…when out of nowhere he bursted out into song and started flapping around in singing abandon. I choked/laughed out loud. I thought, Oh, I can definitely watch Eric for 20 hours if it’s gonna be like this the whole time! And by that, I mean I hoped for lots more impulsively humorous scenes. The rest of the drama did not measure up to the expectations set by that scene…but it got me hooked enough to watch the whole thing.

gave up

snoozer moments
Well, what do you think? There’s a lot of office politics in this and as nice as it was to see Eric overcome adversity and prevail, let’s face it, we’re still following office politics here. What kind of uncontrollable mayhem and adventure could possibly be borne out of the coupling of words like office and politics? Limited, unfortunately.

soju-guzzling
Yeah…there was definitely some late-night drinking. Well, again, I reference the term office politics. Anything to do with office and politics would naturally require a massive consumption of alcohol.

what didn’t work
Oh JiHo is always lovely to look at, of course, but his character was a bit of a droning disaster…the writers wouldn’t commit to making him completely eeeeevil so he just floated along in a sort of purgatory hell...as a rather feckless villain.

what did
I liked Eric’s floppy hair, as I’ve already referenced several times.

what made me want to gouge my eyes out
Well, this is not directly related to the drama’s storyline, but the fact that job applicants have to supply a picture with their resume totally bugged me. I hate to push upon my western ideals onto another culture, as that is not proper practice and rarely fair or justified, but it totally stuck a craw up my...craw. Just as Brick found mendacity a stinky odor (in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof), I, too, am a hater of falsehoods and deceptions! Having a picture of a job applicant is a blatant lie against fairness, against the idea of judging candidates on purely their credentials alone. It opens the door for the opportunity for prejudice. Like I said, it just bugs me. But that’s neither here nor there, just something I noticed and stuck in my head.

what kept me going

It was an unoffensive watching.
______________________________

Other factors:
predictability Yes
engrish Yes
originality Hm, I guess
eye-candy Oh JiHo usually leans toward studly. And Eric, I guess, if you’re into him. He was way hotter in Que Sera Sera though. He was just floppy in this one (I liked the floppy, but it wasn’t exactly sexy)
hair and fashion Suits, ties, and button-downs. A repressed chic, maybe?
______________________________

is it worth trying to find?
Not...really...maybe...sure...

total enjoyment factor 
8/10 initially while watching it…

…but upon later reflection, probably more closer to a 6/10

total disdain factor

why this review is completely biased
Rather smitten by the Oh JiHo hunky factor due to my fandom for Couple or Trouble, but think Eric is just okay

could a non-kdrama fan like this
Me thinks not

verdict
Fan of Eric? Not a fan of Eric? Do you even know who Eric is? These may be the main qualifying factors on the amount of love you will be able to give this drama because it’s truly all about the Eric. Generally speaking, however, I thought it was pretty entertaining. This one was ultimately about the lovable slacker; about the passive cruelty of the Korean corporate world and the perserverance needed to survive. Eric gets to showcase his acting skills in his more serious venture Que Sera Sera better, but he’s goofy and charming in this one and sometimes it’s way harder to play an easygoing bore of a nice guy that’s watchable than it is the play the charismatic complicated guy. Also, if Han GaIn’s dire, dire Witch Amusement has been your only relationship with her, you’ll be relieved to see how darling she can be when cast in a relatively decent role.

A White Girl Reviews: Super Rookie

 


Title: Super Rookie

Country of Origin: Korea

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Stars: Eric, Oh Ji-Ho, Han Ga-In, Lee So Yeon

Number of Episodes: 20

Super Rookie isn’t one of those dramas that you’d think “Oh my Park Bom goddess, or whatever deity you worship, I really want to watch this drama” or one that sticks in a sea of dramas but it’s worth the watch if you ever find yourself with time to kill. This is what I thought anyway, I probably passed over it a million times skimming my numerous drama sites hunting for more prospective rom-com dramas to add to my ever growing list of bookmarked dramas. Until one day I probably saw the picture and decided, “Okay Super Rookie, tell me more about yourself.” And this is how the story goes….

Kang Ho (Eric of Korean boy band Shinhwa, never heard of him but if you have good for you) is a loser, much like me and at an age when his peer group should have a stable job and probably supporting a family. However, Kang Ho spends his days reading manhwa, playing cards and boxing or something like that and still lives with his parents. He is looking for work however, but his tired speech for his wanting to work at [company name] because as a child he would look up at the sign of [company name] and know he wanted to work there because he knew the name stood for something or some bullshit like that, is getting him nowhere. Until one day his friend Joo Sung-tae (Jung Jin), who he kicks around, takes him to hand in resumes at LK, a pretty big deal company that does something but I am not sure what it is but it’s not important to the story. Either way, Kang Ho manages to squeak through the hiring process through a series of accidents including a scantron computer fail that makes his 0% read as a 100%. Note, I hear if you put Chapstick over the bubbles on one of those sheets the computer won’t process it right and will mark it as correct. But don’t quote me on that because it might just be a lie. But it’s worth a shot if you’re in high school and your life depends on filling in bubbles. Anyway…

So on the other hand there is top employee Park Bong-sam (Oh Ji Ho, whom you may remember from Couple of Fantasy that I reviewed a month or so ago). His story is like he’s from like a poor family or something and worked his way up the ladder and his whole life has been a struggle, I highly doubt that though because have you seen Oh Ji Ho!? Anyway, he is currently dating Suh Hyun-ah (Lee So Yeon) whose dad is like best friends with the owner or something of LK, either way she has a pretty important job at the company because of who she knows and not what she knows. Bong-sam prior to getting this sweet gig as company golden boy dated temp-worker Lee Mi-ok (Han Ga-in) but he dumped her for Hyun-ah to climb the ladder. Bong-sam feels slightly guilty about it but doesn’t do much to soften the blow for poor Mi-ok and kind of flaunts his new relationship. Yeah, he’s kind of a dick.

So Kang Ho meets Mi-ok one night when she is thinking about jumping off a bridge because that’s how Koreans solve their problems but she falls backwards or something and lands on Kang-Ho. It’s something like that. Anyway, Kang-Ho during training ends up doing amazing things and is considered “Super Rookie”, the title that was supposed to go to Bong-sam and Bong-sam is not a fan. I dunno just know that Kang Ho gets lucky time and again and keeps getting awarded for his dumb luck and is pissing off people. It’s not long after this that it’s discovered he is nowhere near qualified for his job but due to his accommodations and supposed 100% on the employment quiz that the middle managers can’t fire him even though they find out the test results are a lie. So they give him busy work that means nothing in a isolated area of the building and call it “Top Secret work.”

Meanwhile, something happens that Hyun-ah doesn’t want Mi-ok around anymore. I think something happened while they were sharing a room during training the trip because Mi-ok was there to help the guy running the thing, I dunno. I think Mi-ok told her off or something and Hyun-ah was like, “Oh no she didn’t. Uncle… Guy who runs the company, fire her!” So Mi-ok is on borrowed time at the office and to make herself feel better she goes out a gets a make over. Make over = loses the glasses, lets her hair down and puts on make up… or more make up, I dunno. So I think she gets fired like five times but never really gets fired and I think ends up keeping her job thanks to Kang Ho. P.s. they tooooooooootally end up dating. Eventually Kang Ho, Mi-ok and Bong-sam end up joining forces for something after Bong-sam’s like, “Kang Ho is an idiot but an okay guy and Hyun-ah sucks and I regret breaking Mi-ok’s heart for her so I’mma stop being a douche and be a guy my parents can be proud of!” I forget specifics but that’s pretty much it.

Ya know for what it is, Super Rookie isn’t a terrible drama but doesn’t do much to make itself stand apart from the rest of the dramas, as I said before. If I remember correctly it’s sort of a slow moving drama but it gives hope to unemployed losers with no marketable skills who still live with their parents who are not so secretly ashamed of their loser offspring, like myself, that accidents may happen that will turn your life around. That was a joke, if you couldn’t tell. The characters were likable and Eric and Han Ga-in were a great lead pair, I think and they both carried the story well. And Oh Ji Ho is just awesome because how can you not love Oh Ji Ho?!

I am giving this one a 6.5, passing but just barely because it’s a good drama, like I said, for what it is but it’s not an essential one that ohmyParkBomgoddess you must see or your life with be sadly lacking. It’s watchable but it’s not one that sticks with you, unless you have a fairly good memory for this crap like I do. Also, it’s also not one where you’re like, man I could totally watch that one again.
