Choi Daniel’s character is the director of a media company who is completely uninterested in people or developing interpersonal relationships, and believes in doing all of his work himself. It’s sure to drive Baek Jin-hee crazy—she’s up to play a bright and affable secretary who’s amazing at her job and acknowledged by everyone around her as a “tailor-made supporter sent down from the heavens.” She loves to talk and has never lost an argument a day in her life, and she’s quick to adapt and knows how to get by in any situation. She’s also the system operator of Jugglers, an online community of secretaries named for their multi-tasking abilities.
This explains why Kang Hye-jung’s (Lucid Dream) character sounds very similar on paper—there will be many secretaries featured across various fields in the drama. She’ll play a mother who returns to the workforce after 15 years as a full-time housewife, and she’ll be the kind and naive secretary to a sports business director. That director will be played by Lee Won-geun (Mystery Queen), an immature chaebol heir troublemaker who spends his efforts trying to fire 100 secretaries in a year. But at Number 89, he’s met his match who won’t go down without a fight.
Jugglers will be helmed by PD Kim Jung-hyun (drama special In Search of Argenta) and new writer Jo Yong-hae, and is set to follow Witch’s Court on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning in December.

I'm really happy with this cast. It's been ages since Kang Hye Jung has done a drama and Choi Daniel just finished up his military service last month. Baek Jin Hee's Missing Nine character and performance made me love her forever, it's cute that she and her bf have back-to-back dramas. I hope this office comedy will be in the same vein as Chief Kim!
