Funny! But I could't get how did he relate the fire of the next building.

キムさん、ダサいけど憎めない!どうせなら窓を突き破って火事の炎でタバコを付けてほしかったな~

Excellent short! It depicts the life of white collar very well. Sorry that he didn't get out of the building in time. Is the building next door on fire because of him?

Looks like Kim-san is capable of doing various jobs I liked him best when he was cleaning the sanitary ware.

So did Kim-san become successful or did he smoke his life away? Anyone?

Exellent movie!! Without any dialogue, it was very humorous and pathetic.
