At CNY lunch, CEO of my company was sitting at my table. The topic settled on what people do on long flights…
Person 1: I like to watch Billions, it’s this drama about insider trading
CEO: Oh, I don’t like watching all these finance stuff on flights, I already see so much of it at work.
Me: Then what do you do?
CEO: I watch Korean dramas
Me: *immediately sits upright* YOU WATCH KOREAN DRAMAS?
CEO: Yes, I watch it to destress. The latest one I watched was Doctors, with the –
Me: PARK SHIN-HYE?
CEO: Ah yes yes. My favourite one so far is that alien drama –
Me: YOU FROM ANOTHER STAR?
CEO: Ah yes that one. I really liked it. I really like the male lead actor –
Me: KIM SOO-HYUN?
CEO: Yeah, him. He’s really good at acting, I really like him.
Me: *jaw still hanging loose*
Yes, newest development in my work place, breaking news: My company CEO watches Korean dramas and is a Kim Soo-hyun fan. Hohoho.
Anyway, my department boss was joking later that we all needed to start watching Korean dramas so we could discuss it with our CEO. And I offered to be the subject expert hehehe
