Synopsis

Three months before the presidential nominating convention, Jang Il Joon, from the New Wave Party, declared his candidacy. On that same day, a woman died in a gas explosion in Sam Chuk. Yoo Min Ki, a documentary producer, heard of his mother’s sudden death and headed back home. As he cast his mother’s ashes in the sea, he thought of his childhood: his father always blurted out that Min Ki was not his son whenever he was drunk. After the funeral, Min Ki returned to Seoul and Jang Il Joon asked Min Ki to work as a PR agent to record the election campaign process. When Min Ki asked Il Joon why he was chosen, Il Joon confessed that Min Ki was his son. Min Ki soon begins to suspect that his mother’s death was not an accident and that Il Joon had actually killed her.

    I don’t know. This film good or bad ? . But, Sungmin was playing this drama. I must watch this drama and hwaitting in indonesia.

  31. 31 : BigMamaLee Says:

    oh my, look at the low viewership numbers. and it’s scheduled for 24 episodes too. i hope they don’t intend to bore the viewers to death. lol. but seriously, why the low numbers? is the story that predictable, or are the actors that mediocre? oh my, oh my. may have to look for something else to watch. oh my, oh my.

  32. 32 : Jang Jang Says:

    this is a serious drama about politics plus some family issues maybe some love btw jay and jihye.If you dun like politics, you would not like to watch this. So far, this drama has not bored me..it has good plot

    wish for higher rater later on !
    president hwaiting !

  35. 35 : reality check Says:

    What is this? Korean politics? Like watching paint dry! ho hum, wake me up when this finishes. Even the Korean viewers are staying away in droves. What’s next, The Thorn Birds? Doesn’t sound too promising.

  36. 36 : van-van Says:

    president is korean drama very fair,n not bored…i think this korean drama good..

  37. 37 : melati Says:

    i like this drama.. just hate his wife. overacting

  38. 38 : melati Says:

    i think a president need a ‘power voice’. jang iljun doesnt have it

  39. 39 : melati Says:

    i like this in episode 7 “in politics nothing can be a ‘complete trust'”
    if i not mistaken, JFK had said that in politics, nothing happened by coincidence!

  40. 40 : mingsung Says:

    this is a good drama with unpredictable plot and also fascinating actor. jang iljun showed the charismatic side that the president should has nowadays. even my father loves this drama hahahha

  41. 41 : nona Says:

    HEYYYY I’M SO NOT FEELING THIS DRAMA, I DON KNO, MAYBE IT
    JUST POLITICS, AND I’M SO USEOF WATCHIN THE MAIN ACTOR
    IN THE EPIC DRAMA SERIES, SOOOO MAYBE I’LL LIKE IT IN THE
    LATER EPISODES.

  42. 42 : chaxin Says:

    political dramas are like bad mother-in-laws. you know they are there but you just learn to avoid them. hahaha

  43. 43 : Ama Says:

    i´m love this drama. I think low rathings are justified themselves because people are always looking for fluffy plots and not for a serious one. And, because the real action happens towards words and not physical fights, people who don´t like to think too much will not like it. just that.

  44. 44 : inelovesungmin Says:

    kyaaaaa~~~!!!! Lee Sungmin is looooooveeee!! kkkk~ ♥o♥

  45. 45 : ilovefakepresident Says:

    LOVE THIS DRAMA. Much more thought-provoking than Daemul and other political dramas because you find it hard to figure out who Jang iljun really is.

    I love political dramas as much as I like fluffy romantic-comedy ones. It gives people hope and insight into the world of politics. Choisujong and his wife are amazing here. I love how, just as Jang iljun says, there is no good vs. evil in politics and that is obviously the theme in this drama. There are disgustingly corrupted characters, but Jang iljun’s real nemesis is as upright or even more so than he is. This show is fascinating as hell and everyone should watch!!!!!!!

  46. 46 : derham Says:

    Koreans are generally interested in politics, so I do not understand why the rate is so love when I think this drama portraits the realistic Korean politics.

    I still don’t understand that those who fought for their democracy are not interested in their own story.

  47. 47 : bigmama Says:

    no surprise, looks like poor ratings forced them to shorten this series from 24 to 20 episodes (as shown in the description). glad to see they will put the viewers out of their misery and end this swiftly. bring on The Thorn Birds (which may or may not be any better). lol

  48. 48 : melati Says:

    “I dont believe in God” , said Jang Iljun. the worst quote ever

  49. 49 : motto Says:

    what is jang’s election motto?
    properity flow like river?

  50. 50 : cubby Says:

    i love mr.choi as jang il-jung..
    Because..the act nice and good with ambius as candidate president (^^) and powerful character,but i don’t know plot that drama real or fiktif?but,i see plot drama is real with name in character not real, true or not??

  51. 51 : Isti Harfiantha Says:

    i really like this drama
    fighting..

  52. 52 : mana Says:

    this is very serius drama about politics and i love this drama.

  53. 53 : mary Says:

    the story is kind of like manga Eagle by mangaka Kawaguchi Kaiji. But I love the acting of all actor and actress, they’re do great job

  54. 54 : gar:) Says:

    this drama was quite interesting :)
    just curious, who was the female reporter, hong yun hee?
    can’t find her name anywhere

  55. 55 : Claire Says:

    ^ I was just wondering that as well… And still I’ve no idea who that actress is. xD

  56. 56 : anna Says:

    can you tell me where can I watch this with english sub?? Plsss … can you give me some link or web site ’cause I browse in some web site that I know and I can’t find anything

  57. 57 : Svikai lee Says:

    Wow hey this is one drama that politics and intergrity are combined. Hey i enjoyed every second of it. Have watched upto episode 16 cnt wait to see the rest.

  58. 58 : Pumpkin Says:

    Everyone has the sof subtitle of this drama?
    Please I need the sub cos it’s very hard to find everywhere.. :(

  59. 59 : MC Says:

    I went looking for a drama and found this one. Great writing, directing, and wonderful, talented cast. But someone may not like what I am about to say. It appeared that Korea got a fictitious Obama President. And boy if that were true, Korean would be in alot of trouble for the next 5 years, if that don’t impeach him before the 5 years are up.
