The Pharma 5 Watch Guide!

Best Time To Watch:

You can watch an episode every night. Watching it can help you unwind and be inspired, especially if you are just new to work.

Prescribed For:

This is recommended for those who really enjoy “Slice of Life” dramas and want a break from the usual dreamy fantasies that Kdramas provide for an escape from reality.

Side Effects:

After watching the pilot episode, I couldn’t help but think back to my first day at work. I certainly sympathize with the character of Siwan in the drama. My social skills were lacking, and I had no prior work experience. Still, I’ve managed to make it thanks to my dedication and work ethic.

Cast & Chemistry:

Each character did an excellent job of converting dull passages into exciting ones by using their unique acting talents. It’s remarkable how much of a bond they developed through the story. Their portrayal of scenes of brotherhood and loyalty is flawless.

Addiction Level:

This is definitely 3 cocktails. It creeps up on you while you least expect it, and before you know it… you’ve watched the entire season in one day. Boom. Be careful.

Episode Count:



This drama portrays the struggles and triumphs of both contractual and permanent “regular” employees, as well as the horror of office politics. Since he was seven years old, Jang Geu Rae, had been a strategy board game (Baduk) player, but due to family obligations, he had to stop. Despite having only a G.E.D. for the previous 26 years, he decided to start working corporately because of his mother’s situation. While watching, I felt the energy and learned more about the inner workings of a corporate office, while tuning in to Jang Geu Rae’s situation with his colleagues. Inspiring and motivating, this drama has done wonders for my knowledge in the corporate world.
