Synopsis
Han Ji-Hoon overcame an underprivileged childhood to pass the judicial examination and become an elite prosecutor. Kim In-Sook lives in the shadow of a Chaebol family, but finally becomes the head of a large corporation.

For Han Ji-Hoon (Ji Sung), Kim In-Sook (Yum Jung-Ah) is the woman who made his difficult life tolerable. Ji-Hoon grew up in an orphanage. He once became the prime suspect of a murder just because his teddy bear was found at the scene of the crime. During that time, Kim In-Sook sent the best lawyer to take up his defense. Ji-Hoon was cleared of the charges. Without Kim In-Sook, Ji-Hoon's life would have been destroyed. Instead, Ji-Hoon eventually became a star prosecutor after he caught the criminal who committed the murder in which Ji-Hoon was the first suspect.


Kim In-Sook has lived in the shadow of the powerful JK family for 18 years. She is the daughter-in-law of a chaebol family, but ignored by her in-laws. Making matters worse, her husband died in a helicopter accident. In-Sook's mother-in-law, Kong Soon-Ho, planned a conspiracy to make In-Sook appear incompetent and take custody over her son. The end result would have been Kim-In-Sook's expulsion from the JK family.

Ji-Hoon watched In-Sook at her husband's funeral. He was stunned to see In-Sook's beaten down appearance. Furthermore, Ji-Hoon learned of her mother-in-law's scheme to oust her from the family.


Ji-Hoon then set the goal to make In-Sook the head of the JK family. While he struggled to accomplish this goal, Ji-Hoon realized his feelings towards Kim In-Sook wasn't from a sense of pity or compassion. Rather, Ji-Hoon was in love with In-Sook. Finally, he accomplished his goal of having her become the president of the JK group.

But at that time, Ji-Hoon learns of a homicide involving a black male. As he digs up more information on the case, the cluse all point to one person - Kim In-Sook. As he gets closer to the truth, the more he doesn't want to know the truth ...

Ji Sung In The Royal Family



Royal Family with the leading man – Ji Sung (Kim Suro, Swallow the Sun) has started shooting early this week. This drama which replaces My Princess times slot tells the story of the hero who overcomes a difficult childhood to become a leading prosecutor. While the heroine who grew up in a chaebol family succeeds to lead the family business – instead of the son, male cousin, conniving uncles.

Thus the title Royal Family is misleading unless its about mafioso …

U-KISS’s Dongho has been expanding his acting career lately through two movie appearances, and he’s just added one more item to his resume. The idol was recently cast into MBC’s “Royal Family“, through which he’ll make his debut in the drama industry.

I don't like really like the feel of the trailer. (looks more political than I was expecting and I'm not in the mood for that)

But I'll check out the first episode for Ji Sung.
