Byun, the Mayor of Seoul who is in his second term, announces his plans to run for mayor again while hinting the political party of his ultimate goal to run for the presidency. A heavily-resourced campaign team is formed, headed by the campaign manager Shim who is known as a crafty politician, while Park, a young prodigy from advertising, is recruited for fresh perspectives in the re-election campaign. But one obstacle after another is thrown their way while his opposing candidate is in the lead. And soon, the dirty realities of politics soil everyone's hands. Edit Translation

It's a fish story out of the water that might feel a little less relevant under any other mayor.
The  first half hour may feel like light fun fun while also serving as an  illustrated guide on "How to Rule," "The Mayor" only speaks to the  purity of how to govern somewhat self-centered, whose entire campaign is  an attempt. Voters will not fall for this, but it deals  with their business, which is to ensure that the city is kept afloat,  its citizens happy.
"The Mayor" has the same goal. It  is here to subtly remind viewers about what politicians should do while  entertaining them with intelligent humor and human stories. The cast is a winner, and the rider marks a good start for what appears to be a productive first term in office. If so, it could not be coming at a better time. Take a look.
