Being the Chinese remake of Misaeng, Ordinary Glory 平凡的荣耀 is one drama that had everyone’s attention from the beginning and it seems to be staying true to its depiction of the everyday man. It is part of what makes the show so brilliantly relatable in the first place and the stills remind me of work except there’s Mark Chao in it! Now, that’s a reason to wake up in the morning. I’m still not sure how Mark Chao fits as the new Manager Oh when he simply doesn’t look old enough in spite of the effort to make him look haggard and stern. Maybe the remake is going for a brotherly vibe?
There is no official English title yet, but the juxtaposition of an ordinary story becoming extraordinary feels so appropriate for the drama. I hope it sticks. It stars Mark Chao, Bai Jingting, Bridgette Qiao Xin, Wei Daxun, Zuo Xiaoqing, Liu Chang, Pang Hanchen, Zhang Zixian, Hao Ping and Huo Zhengyan.
