Cast & Credits
Altough it is a political drama ,the amount of actual poltics involved is quite low. Its not very hardcore. Its quite lighthearted occasionaly but takes itself seriously overall.
It starts out very well but unfortunately in the middle they decided to add a huge melodramatic block spanning 2 episodes which i found very boring. They put too much focus on the not romantic relationship of the main actor and the secretary which ruined the whole series for me. It just lacks content unfortunately, but overall it isnt a bad drama. So if you are interested in a human drama spiced with a little politics give it a shot.
