    “She isn’t fond of aides, which is one of the reasons she doesn’t like Jang Tae Joon.”
    This statement seems to be wrong if you have watched the first 2 episodes…. 🙂

  6. 6 : Fado Revere Says:

    Politicians are prone to corruption. What else is new?

    The drama revolves around the chief-of-staff of an assemblyman, a liberal whose aim it was to make the world a better place, but in the end his good intentions were nothing more than political rhetoric.

    The drama ends on the Marxist notion; “the ends justify the means” whether a cautionary tale I don’t know and I don’t care.
