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 ^.^

I had this drama in my PTW list for a long time for Song Il Guk (love this actor) and I finally pulled it out and watched it. It was a good drama with great romances and good action scenes. Only problem I found was it was a bit too long and the business side of the show got boring at times and the story dragged a bit in the middle (around read more episode 14-17). The beginning was great and I thought the final episodes were good too.

Song Il Guk as Harry/Ju Ho stole the show - He was my favorite character (even if I am a little biased), his love was steadfast and he knew what was right and wrong - his love and care for his younger sister was admirable - a very sweet sibling pair. ^^ He and Maria knew each other when they were young. Through bumps and turns along each of their roads they meet again. Because of certain circumstances they both end up becoming lobbyists for two different people. They are constantly thrown in each others way & Harry always does his best to protect Maria. Maria goes off on a path of revenge, while Harry just wants to protect those around him. My favorite characters were Harry, Andy, Soo Ji, and then Maria (she did annoy me a little in the middle). The bad guys were ruthless and cold-hearted. and the supporting and side characters were all interesting or funny.

The OST was really good, I loved every song and added them all to my playlist ^-^ My favorite song was "Unmyong/Destiny or Fate" by Im Tae Kyung ??? then "Nae Nunmuri Marulttaekkaji" by Tei ? and "Angel" by Kim Jo Han - there might be another ost but I don't have the name off hand. - They are all BEAUTIFUL though - it's good enough to watch just for the OST alone ???

Re-watch Value: not too high, I might re-watch this someday but I might not too (at least not for a long time)

I do recommend it to anyone who likes action dramas or romance - or if you have seen the drama Swallow the Sun and liked it - they are very similar - if you liked one you should like the other too. :)

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.
