16 Business Terms in The Korean Drama "Startup"

The Korean Drama  "Startup" starring Bae Suzy, Nam Joo-hyuk, Kang Hana and Kim Seon-ho just finished last week. Do you like this story in  Korean Drama Startup?


The story starts with Seo Dalmi who wants to run a business like Nam Do-san did with a Startup called Samsan Tech, who wants to prove to her sister Won In-jae that her decision to do business will make money, and never lose to her sister. 


Still, she had to escape early and step into the Sandbox. This is what Dalmi, Dosan, In-jae, and other friends have been fighting for.  They're going to competition to get into their Sandbox selection and if they succeed, they're going to Sandbox for their Startups.


The Sandbox became a incubator for new startups that were in the trenches for the first five months. If they manage to get funding from investors, they will produce products to sell to the market. 


How is their fight to be Startup, from zero to hero? You can watch it in the Korean Drama Startup. 😉


In addition to being a favorite business-themed drama, as each episode Startup begins, we will look at the title of the episode and a description of the terms used in the startup.
