Where to Watch Assembly
Cast & Credits
Cast: Jung Jae Young plays Jin Sang Pil a honest good hearted man who speaks out (and loudly too) when he doesn't like something or when he's trying to get his ideas across - at first he comes off as ignorant but you soon start being amazed with what he is saying - there were many times that my face looked like In Kyung's - I'd go from "oh brother, he's not listening again" to "wow, what he is saying is really true and it hits home!" LOL - a brilliant actor indeed! I applauded him and admired him - He is a character I respect!
Song Yoon Ah plays Choi In Kyung a person cast aside by her trusted sunbae & becoming an aide by pressure to Jin Sang Pil (a complete novice in the political field) She at first doesn't consider him as anything but a hick but slowly she opens up to him and admires him & completely supports him - the best "aide" you could ever ask for! First time I've ever loved a female character so much! She was absolutely awesome!!! A woman to be admired <3 I also looked forward to her facial expressions! They were PRICELESS!!! :P
Ok Taecyeon plays Bae/Kim Gyu Hwan the son of Bae Dal Soo (a friend & co-worker of Jin Sang Pil) - misunderstandings underway, he decides to work for Sang Pil in order to enact revenge - little does he know that he will come to admire this man himself ^_^ His role is very minor compared to the 2 leads but I really enjoyed him in this drama <3
I won't take time to go over any more characters/actors but they all played their roles exceptionally well :) They could either make you admire them or become disgusted by them.
OST: I only remember instrumentals but I loved them - especially one when something big was about to happen, it was fast tempo and I swear I've heard it before :D
I will definitely re-watch this drama when I find time. I didn't want this one to end while I was watching it! and I would recommend it to even those who aren't highly fond of political dramas!
You have to see the show to believe it's impact.The Journey of the lead character Jin Sang Pil (played by Jung Jae Young with utmost sincerity) from a welder to a National assembly man is inspirational all the way .You become invested in his struggle to survive in the assembly and all the characters (even the minor ones) leave an impact..Exceptionally well written and moving scenes and beautiful moving speeches from JSP at crucial times make this an utterly memorable show
If you like well written shows with a great underdog story performed with a lot of heart ,go for it..
I have seen Daemul and found it impressive-this moved me a lot more..The story is so good
