9 Reasons Producer reminds us of The Office
As the hit drama Producer came to an end, (SO SAD!) we thought this would cheer you up. Scroll down to see nine reasons K-drama Producer reminds us of NBC's The Office.
1 Mokumentary interviews
Producer and The Office employ the "interview" technique, where the actors share their true feelings to an invisible person behind the camera.
2 Story of office employees
Producer chronicles the lives of the staff members who create TV shows at a broadcasting company in Seoul. Employees at at a fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Pennsylvania appear on The Office.
3 Incapable team leader
Cha Tae Hyun's project is not doing as well as expected, and he faces the sticky situation of having to tell egotistical actresses they're fired from his TV show. Similarly, Steve Carell in The Office plays Michael Scott, world's most incompetent boss.
4 …who’s way too honest
Kim Soo Hyun fails to tell the oldest actress she's out of the show, and boss Cha Tae Hyun vents at him, yelling, "Go away, I never want to see your face again!" Likewise, The Office's Michael Scott can be as brutally honest.
5 A cute office couple
Cha Tae Hyun and Gong Hyo Jin don’t acknowledge their relationship in the office, but they're still cute when together like The Office's Jim and Pam!
6 This awkward guy
There is always one awkward person in the office. Producer's Kim Soo Hyun falls from his chair on his first day at work. The Office's Dwight spills coffee all over himself trying to pick up the mug with his feet.
7 …who says stupid things
Kim Soo Hyun's naive, stubborn personality as well as Dwight's lack of pop culture knowledge are silly yet endearing.
8 That iconic woman
Producer's Ye Ji Won from the human resources department reminds us of The Office's Meredith as they share peculiar personalities.
9 “Ego clashes”
Gong Hyo Jin goes through a couple of ego clashes for money, from having to reimburse for damaging Kim Soo Hyun's car to the events surrounding Cha Tae Hyun's apartment. Here she looks back at the apartment as she moves out because her relationship with him got too complicated.
