[HanCinema's News] Office Chemistry Elements Teased for "Stove League"


As "Stove League" nears its premiere on December 13th more elements of the drama are coming into focus. Most notably, though the drama is focused around a baseball team, increasingly the story appears to be focused more around office management of a baseball team, than it is around baseball games directly.

Specifically, Park Eun-bin has been granted second billing in the drama as the operations manager. Jo Byeong-gyu also has a prominent role as the current only credited employee in that department. As Park Eun-bin is a woman and Jo Byeong-gyu is a man, their positions in regard to subordinate and superordinate are unusual, even though Park Eun-bin appears to be playing the role in the stereotypically physically and verbally aggressive manner normally reserved for older men.

On set reports have described Park Eun-bin as being very in-synch with Jo Byeong-gyu, who is portraying a less than clever man who arrived at his position through family patronage. Purportedly Park Eun-bin's character will mold him into being a properly contributing member of the team.

While none of the promotional material in "Stove League" has suggested a romantic subplot, Jo Byeong-gyu would be the most obvious choice, as he is only four years younger than Park Eun-bin. The higher-billed Namgoong Min and Oh Jung-se, by contrast, are fourteen and fifteen years older than her. "Stove League" will air on Fridays and Saturdays on SBS in the timeslot previously occupied by "Vagabond".
