From the writer/director duo that brought you the SBS hit, "Giant", Jang Yeong-cheol and Yoo In-sik respectively, have paired up again for their next success, "Salaryman". Part melodrama, part comedy, this series takes its cues from the epic legend "The Romance of the Three Kingdoms," with its characters taking on names from the story. (For any interested, DramaFever has the 5-part series available!) With its star-studded cast of Jeong Ryeo-won ("Princess Ja Myung Go", "My Name is Kim Sam-soon"), Lee Beom-soo ("Giant", "On Air"), Jeong Kyeo-woon ("Romance Town", "Sign") and Hong Soo-hyeon ("The Princess' Man", "Lie To Me") we're taken along the ride for what promises to be a new twist on a classic "whodunit" mystery in this noir-inspired drama.
One night Yoo Bang (played by Lee Beom-soo) enters a dark, mysterious villa with nothing but a flashlight, only to find an executive of the Chunha Medical Group, Ho Hae slouched in a chair, dead and Jin Ho Hae's niece, Yeo Chi (Jeong Ryeo-won) hiding behind a curtain. At Ho Hae's funeral, Yoo Bang and Yeo Chi are suddenly taken into custody for his murder. We're taken three months into the past to reveal what led to this murder and exactly who was responsible. During this flashback we meet Choi Hang Woo (Jeong Kyeo-woon), a director from Ho Hae's rival pharmaceutical company, who is undercover to steal the formula for their new drug and the Chief Researcher from Chunha Group, Cha Woo-Hee (played by Hong Soo-hyeon). The lives of these individuals will all be intertwined within these three months to reveal exactly just who murdered Ho Hae, and why.
