TVING’s new drama, “I Have Not Done My Best,” depicts the daily life of Nam Geum-pil, a 44-year-old man seeking a “new life.” Park Hae-Joon portrays Nam Geum-pil in “I Have Not Done My Best,” and his new role differs greatly from the strong roles he played in “Arthdal Chronicles” and “The World of the Married.”
Nam Geum-pil, the sales manager of a medical company, begins his day drowsily. He wakes up later than his high school daughter and expresses his “disinterest in going to work” with his entire body.
After waking up, he goes to the hospital to do business with the hospital’s president, but things don’t go well. When he returns to work at the company, he is criticized by the boss because he did not conduct the business properly. Worse, he can’t even eat the food he wanted to have. After a bad morning, Nam Geum-pil decides to quit his job.
Nam Geum-pil proudly informs his father that he has quit his job and will look for work on his own. His sluggish daily life, however, continues even while he is unemployed. Then he meets a man in the park who he believes is in the same situation as him but turns out to be a well-known webtoon writer. Nam Geum-pil decides to take on the challenge of becoming a webtoon writer.
As we all well know, life does not go as planned, and nothing goes as planned. Nam Geum-pil does not give up, despite being ignored and pitied by family, friends, apartment residents, and children as young as his daughter. He reminds himself to “wait for the right moment” and continue challenging himself.
“I Have Not Done My Best” is based on the Japanese manga “I’ll Give It My All… Tomorrow”
