YesAsia Editorial Description

The screenwriter of The Chaser, The Yellow Sea and Confession of Murder, Hong Won Chan makes his directorial debut with the psychothriller Office, which premiered out of competition at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. A crime thriller with a satirical bite, the film chills in more ways than one, compounding the murderous spree of an unhinged killer with the everyday horrors of the modern corporate workplace.

Kim Byung Guk (Bae Sung Woo, The Royal Tailor) seems like your typical salaryman – until the day he returns home, pulls out a hammer and kills his entire family. The next day, Detective Choi (Park Sung Woong, The Deal) shows up at Kim's workplace to question the employees about Kim who is now at large. His colleagues all insist that they noticed nothing out of the ordinary, but Choi suspects something amiss, and tries to get more information from mousy intern Mi Rae (Ko Ah Sung, Snowpiercer). The more Choi digs around, the more he learns about the miserable circumstances of Kim's workplace – and the many signs that his final destination may be the office.

A VERY bad day at the office Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Starting a new day as an intern office worker Mi-rye (Ah-sung Go) is shocked to hear by colleagues that her manager Mr Kim (Seong-woo Bae) had murdered his wife, mother and disabled child. Detective Joon-hoon (Sung-woong Park), questioning reluctant office workers, learns from each that Kim was a mild mannered and meticulous worker with good family values, had no prioritising covetous ambition for promotion. Kill anyone? He wouldn’t hurt a fly. But something made him finally snap and bludgeon his family to death. Concerned of his business reputation director Sang-gyu (Eui-sung Kim) persuades his chief colleague Jae-ill (Dae-Hwan Oh) to strongly admonish naive Mi-rye about telling the truth when she is last to be questioned by police. Reputation at stake Mi-rye is forced to give Kim also a good character reference. But such answers of positive qualities raise suspicion to Joon-hoon, that a pressurised staff are holding back on crucial information.

Later Mi-rye, advised to attend a board meeting by her assistant manager Ji-sun (Hyoun-Kyoung Ryoo) and happy to feel inclusive is again shocked, hearing the stress filled rages of director Sang-gyu around the board room, about plummeting sales targets, attendance records and shoddy personal commitment. Alongside an employee now accursed of murder. Each of her new workers berated for incompetence, grilled about weekend commitments and late evening shifts. Mi-rye, as a new intern finds herself in difficult waters. She wants to make a success at the business and puts extra hard work into her trial time. As did Mr Kim. Ji-sun and her co workers Chae-eun (Ha-young Lee) and Won-suk (Jung-min Park) assess Mi-rye’s overall qualities to whether she can work full time (and fit in) at the company. But Mi-rye’s enthusiasm is viewed suspicious and her friendly eager attitude, a ‘lack of intricate social skill’. Then a new intern is introduced - Da-mi (Soo-hyun Son) a well educated, socially blending and friendly asset that begins to worry Mi-rye’s future prospects. But Mi-rye isn’t alone. Sang-gyu fears for his company’s reputation and even that Kim could be lurking in the office building after a bad dream he had; Ji-sun stressed by her directors constant demands for perfection, Chae-eun and Won-suk’s anxious dissatisfied attitudes, all pitch forking out towards Mi-rye as if good work done was a poison not a virtue. Why had Mr Kim done what he did? And that large knife she discovers in her office drawer?

An Unbefitting Suitability Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Of the words detective Joon-hoon had echoed of what Kim had also recently told Mi-rye. That there are two types of people in the world - ones like Mr Kim and herself doing what is asked for and others of a more inconsistent divergent viewpoint. The left hand could even be the right one, vice versa. But out of all this the big worry was when Jae-Ill’s hung body fell through the ceiling of the board room at another important meeting. But Mi-rye is brave and determined to succeed as she works late at the offices of a food and drinks company.

After watching Office with its unsocial hiatus is enough for would be sales administrators to turn tide and sell the Big Issue. Regarded as a slasher movie there’s more tension and even ghostly menace than violence, although when violence hits the screen - it certainly does. But there is social substance to make this on par with Whispering Corridors, the pressures of systematic education and all that, but here a corporate Office environment and a barbed circle of overstressed individuals. People are ambitious and with social expectations, looking for an hexagon shaped personality to fit the recess. Mi-rye here is more rounded, sympathetic as was Mr Kim, so logically wouldn’t ‘fit in well’ with idiosyncratic mind set. My only misgiving here are the thriller killer exposition that such a ‘quiet considerate soul’ can be a ticking time bomb and mentally ill. Exasperated killer in ignorance here maybe, but this should be no generalization.

The social climate in Office relates to stress inducing irrationality due to demanding personal concerns. Ji-sun, Chea-eun and Jung-min alienating Mi-rye’s conscientious duty due to mutual social agreements about there own minor rebellious ambitions - ‘we don’t want three bags full, sir’, a collective retaining understanding of caution towards authority and power, so Mi-rye’s eagerness is viewed as positive but ignorant of the machinations of corporate blueprint. Mild mistrust sets in, which itself can distort mutual harmonious fellowship. Not that all offices are hierarchical systems thriving on ignorance at lower levels, to acquire obedience in ‘getting the job done’. But here Office stresses overworked people of all levels with no true solidarity just subscriptions to personal preference. In fact only Da-mi seemed to have the most rational in her character by wishing to befriend Mi-rye and salve her troubled subjectivity. An excellent thriller from a screenwriter that gave us The Chaser.
