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.

Im Ji Eun joins President




35 years old Im Ji Eun who plays charismatic teacher in KBS success drama God Of Study will transform herself into Oh Jae Hui , a president’s aide in upcoming KBS drama titled President.

Her character is a divorced lawyer , a mad dog but will not hit if it’s logic. She then joins Jang Il Joon’s camp in presidential election as public affairs adviser.

President to be , Jang Il Joon will be played by veteran actor Choi Soo Jong (Comrades, Dae Jo Yeong).

Because it aired almost simultaneously, President will always be compared with other similar drama Daemul/ Big Thing, starred by power actress Ko Hyun Jung who also wants to be female president.

While Ko Hyun Jung with her great charisma success grabbed more than 20% rating, it’s a big job for 48 years old Choi Soo Jong to level his acting with Ko Hyun Jung and spreads his charisma.

We’ll see the result when President airs next December.

Ha Hee-ra transformed into 'Iron Woman'... Strong aura



Ha Hee-ra turned into cold 'Iron Woman'.

Ha Hee-ra will be acting as Jang In-joon's wife, Professor Jo So-hee in KBS 2TV new Wed-Thu drama, "President".

In the still cuts, which were released on the 12th, Ha Hee-ra showed a new version of her. She threw out her usual kind image and showed sharp and ambitious intellectual, by her sharp eye acting; her goal is to make her husband Korean president.

In the drama, Jo So-hee was elected as a member of the National Assembly for her husband who cannot be one due to his violation of election law. She eagerly helped his husband. For example, she led her husband's election camp; this reminds people of American first ladies such as, Michelle Obama and Hilary Clinton.

ENT, the production company of this drama, said, “Ha Hee-ra appealed as forceful character only by her eyes and facial expressions. New Ha Hee-ra, who has force and strong aura around her is coming soon. This is the explanation of how powerful woman can be.

"President", which is the follow-up of 'The Fugitive Plan B', is the happenings of Choi Soo-jong becoming Korean president. This is already popular due to Choi Soo-jong / Ha Hee-ra's first couple appearance after their wedding.

Updated cast and stills for the upcoming Korean drama "President"











Kim Heung-soo added to President



KBS’s upcoming politics-themed drama President has added Kim Heung-soo to its cast, which piques my interest because this guy can be a pretty sexy bastard onscreen (which is the description that came most often to mind when watching romantic-comedy drama Invincible Lee Pyeong-gang, where he played a scheming villain).

he should play a confident Casanova here, described as free-thinking, frank, and fashionable. His Ki Soo-chan character is a political consultant who takes on the job of campaign manager for a presidential candidate. Though he starts off in the opposition’s camp, he’s scouted to the other side because he’s just that good.

That presidential candidate will be played by veteran actor and sageuk king Choi Su-jong (Dae Jo Young, Comrades), which makes this a reunion for him and Kim Heung-soo six years after they acted together in Emperor of the Sea. Notably, Choi’s real-life wife Ha Hee-ra will act as his onscreen first lady.

President will follow Runaway Plan B, which means that it’ll air directly opposite SBS’s big presidential drama, Daemul, for a few weeks before that drama wraps.
