If your someone that likes to watch romantic k-dramas with lots of plot twists and evil schemes. Then you have found the right Drama. Lobbyist in a nut-shell is a romance drama that's set with each character trying to be recognized as the dominant arms dealer. Although the story is set around the arms trade, there is going to be love between the characters, evil schemes by the antagonists, and etc.
Some things that I liked:

- Each character is a lobbyist and it was great to see how the drama was able to connect the characters with each other and provide a very detailed background story

- Since the story is set around the arms trade there are going to be many guns and fight scenes, however they fit there part in the drama so you don't feel like its just a war drama

Some things that i hated:

- Initially, this drama will give you a lengthy amount of information on the main character. However this pushes back your impression of the drama and makes you bored right of the bat(but keep watching!!)

- Once you have finished watching this drama then your done. It's a one-time watch drama.(You'll understand..)

However with all that being said, its something that strikes away from the typical k-drama and provides a new flavor. If your someone that wants to try something new and

different then this is one Drama that you should try ^.^

A lot of things in this drama made no sense and I was often left wondering "How the heck did that happen?" and "What the heck happened during those years?"

Indeed, a lot of time lapses in order to not answer such questions as "How did a wounded man escape terrorists on a desert and how did he get home?" And then "Wait, Korean man on a desert, terrorists? What?"

But you read more guys, I loved the characters (except the woman). I loved the main guy, his friends and all the scheming politicians, I loved them all. Because they felt real. I loved the fast paced storytelling in its all ridiculousness. I even loved the ending of which I am still not sure of. Did it happen or not?

There is something about this drama I can't describe. Maybe because it reminds me of good old days, of All In (I mean the same screenwriter and all). Lobbyist is like a little cousin on the epic example of revenge, political plotting, from rags to decent living, love never dies. There is the feel many dramas simply lack, what makes you watch one episode after another. A good drama about ambitions, revenge, plotting. This is a good replacement if you think All In or Sand Glass are too old and if you are yearning for a lot of action and strong love story.

Both main male leads are the self-sacrificing sort that have more lives than a cat, both are in love with a childhood fried who is the source of at least half of their troubles.
Recommended by Juls
Their themes are very similar, met as children, find each other when older, fall in love. Careers different and yet always crossing paths, guns everywhere. Risking their lives everyday...ectra...Would sacrifice anything and everything just for the happiness or life of the other.
