1) "I Quit Today!"
To me this situation is impossible to happen in real life. Why? In a company with the scale as big as International One (the company name in Misaeng), is it really possible to resign without submitting one month notice? I rarely doubt it, my friend. Whether if it's really like that over there in Korea or not, I still doubt this thing could happen in real life.
2) "For You, I'll Go Through All Kinds of Traffic."
But then again, how could this really happen in real life, especially in Jakarta?? Let's say you work at Sudirman, and if it is situated like in Plus Nine Boys, you can't really go home on time at 17.30 (because of the workload and all). The fastest you can go home is 18.00, and then you take the Trans Jakarta bus with this girl to Kota. On the way, you cannot really have a romantic moment with her because the bus is so packed. You arrived at Kota bus shelter at 19.00, because all of the waiting and the traffic. You watch this girl walk home first because her home is just happened to be around the corner of that bus shelter. After she is out of your sight, you take the bus again to Sudirman, because your house is actually located in, let's say, Tebet. You probably will arrive home at 21.00 the soonest. The latest is indefinite.
3) "I Can Eat Whatever I Want and Stay Skinny!"
4) "I Am Smart As Hell but I Will Surely Fall In Love with The Neighborhood Dummy!"
Well, those girls do have other qualities though; warm, cheerful, determined, et cetera, but still, dude? Seriously, like you think we would believe this?
There are two theories here that you may choose.
First is that these Korean fictional men really like the idea of dating women who are less smarter than them, because they will definitely feel intimidated by the presence of a more intelligent partner; or it is because these men are already highly intelligent that they do not feel the need to find a partner who is at least as (if not more) intelligent as they are, but instead have something else to offer, such as socializing skill, survival skill, and so on.
In real life, could this situation really really ever happen? Even though I do (or I want to) believe the answer to the above theories is the latter one, but I found an interesting article in Huffington Post: 'Men May Like The Idea of A Smart Woman, but They Don't Want To Date One.'
Which brings me to a presumption, hey this situation is not as impossible as I may think it was! There is a rather high percentage of chances that a man will probably fall for a more intelligent woman, but rather date someone who is less brilliant in the brain area.
But hey, who the hell am I kidding, the hopeless romantic that I am (and I know all women are) still believe that love does indeed overcome any shortcomings. The smart hottie may actually fall for the cheerful dummy.
So, those are few of the many things in K-Dramas that I find probably will not be happening in real life. Do you have any other interesting things to add?
