Here are 3 Korean webtoons you can read to satisfy your craving for office romance!
“See You In My 19th Life” tells the story of a Ban JiEum, a woman with a secret. She has been reincarnated 19 times and retains the memories of all her past lives.

2. “The Country At Our Office” – Palm Tree, WasakBasak, JANE
If Jung HaeIn and Son YeJin’s “Something In The Rain” made you feel any way, “The Nuna At Our Office” will rip your heart out, only to gently put it back in its place. It tells the story of manager Son, an employee in his early thirties, and manager Ahn, his older co-worker whom he falls in love with. However, he soon realizes that societal pressures can be very difficult to bear. It is based on the author’s real story, which expands the immersion multiple. This webtoon is romance at its best – dreamy, charming and rosy, but also melodramatic and painfully realistic. You’ll get butterflies in your stomach on one hand and hydraulics on the other, but the balance is so beautifully crafted that you won’t be able to put it down.
