Since he was a child, the board game baduk has been everything to Jang Geu-rae. But when he fails at achieving his dream of becoming a professional baduk player, Geu-rae must leave his isolated existence and enter the real world armed with nothing but a high school equivalency exam on his resume. Through an acquaintance's recommendation, he gets hired as an intern at One International, a large trading company. There, Geu-rae meets his boss, manager Oh Sang-shik, who's a workaholic and has a warm personality; fellow intern Ahn Young-yi, who attracts her colleagues' ire because of her impressive educational credentials and by being extremely competent at any task; and Jang Baek-gi, a geeky co-worker whose anxious nature masks his inner ambition. Geu-rae learns to navigate and adapt to corporate culture, with baduk as his guide. Written by madbhoot

I am from Spain and I have been improving my, once very poor, English to something I can communicate with. I did it mixing the little knowledge I had while living in england for 8 months when I was young. I'm BAD at learning other languages but I tried my best making a big effort to never seeing any movie, TV show or anything related dubbed (in Spain, everything is dubbed.. and that's one of the reasons, if not the main one, our youngsters sucks at English)

I started with subtitles in my language... changed for subtitles in English and finally with no subtitles at all (It took many years).

And the point is... If people wouldn't cast their votes based on their own experience while watching it (reading subtitles) this TV show would never had such a low grade as 7.5 which many of you may thing is quite good.

This TV show deserves much, much more... if You are up to make an effort. Trust me you will never forget this show (and Mr. Oh)
