Lee Sang Yeob Confirmed To Star In New MBC Drama Alongside Jung Jae Young And Moon So Ri
Lee Sang Yeob has been confirmed for an upcoming MBC drama!
On February 23, it was reported that the actor would be making his return with MBC’s upcoming drama “On the Verge of Insanity.” The drama follows the story of middle-aged office workers struggling to survive in their competitive workplace that is undergoing substantial changes. It will touch on the “hot issues” of office life, such as resigning, moving to a new job, as well as being laid off.
Later that day, Lee Sang Yeob confirmed his appearance as Han Se Kwon, who works in the business sector of an electronics company. Although Han Se Kwon is related to the company group’s owner, he is considered an inferior who is unable to properly fit into the owner’s family. His character has a strong desire to receive recognition and succeed on his own.
Jung Jae Young will play Choi Ban Seok, a developer in the home appliances division of Hanmyung Electronics. He boasts an impressive academic background but is not the best worker, making him look extravagant on the outside when he is a sloppy character in real life. He is a veteran engineer who is reasonable, warm, and determined to make people laugh. Although he displays an incredible sense of survival through a period of downsizing at Hanmyung Electronics, he eventually ends up in the HR team through a series of ups and downs.
Moon So Ri plays the leader of HR, a workaholic named Dang Ja Young. She is her team’s best, quickest, and most active employee. With her fierce tenacity, she dreams of becoming the company’s first-ever female executive. However, the addition of Choi Ban Seok to her team becomes an obstacle as she becomes unsure of what to do with him.
MBC’s “On the Verge of Insanity” will premiere this June and air every Wednesday and Thursday.
