Hye Rim, TV anchor, who loses her husband and is left alone with a young child due to the political decisions, loses her job as she speaks out loud what she thinks about the political system. thanks to her convictions and hard work, she will overcome obstacles and access one of the most powerful political position, the presidency. in her quest, she will be helped by Do Ya, a trustful prosecutor.
Very good, entertaining drama. Ko Hyeon Jeong is one of my favorite Korean actresses. Plus, I love political intrigues and conspiracy stories. The story is well written. Good balance between comedy, drama, political/power fights. It could be classified as anticipation drama to some extent as having a woman as president of Korea is not yet real but could happen. That is a really good one.
Update: Now this drama is touching reality. Pak Geun Hye is now president of South Korea.
