Hero is the story of Korea's top reporters and ordinary citizens fighting against the society elite's abuse of power. Working as a reporter for a racy tabloid called the Monday Seoul, Jin Do Hyuk uses any means necessary to get a scoop. One day, he goes to interview Jo Yong Deok, the boss of the Axe gang, who suggests that they start their own newspaper. Do Hyuk lies about the credentials of his former co-workers when he introduces them to Jo Yong Deok as potential hires for the newspaper venture. With his former co-workers on board, he is able to launch the Yongdeok Daily together with Yong Deok. But the newly hired reporters soon find themselves sucked into a huge conspiracy that could utterly ruin their lives.

At first, when I picked up this drama, I was a bit sceptical. I had read many comments and reviews and most of them, if not all, said that this drama was too boring. Nevertheless, I wanted to give it a try and I did not have to disappoint myself. Although it's kind of sad that it ended with low ratings and it's still very underrated. As I said before, most of people did not really enjoy this drama but I think it depends on person. As for me, I really loved this drama and it's definitely one of my favorite dramas. It had great cast and very realistic story which had definitely that kind of topic people should pay more attention to. It is about how media can manipulate people easily and about most of politicians' real intentions when they have turned too greedy. I find that media issuses and all that manipulating is kind of troubling topic, especially in Korea, so this drama will definitely open at least someone's eyes about it. This drama also didn't have main focus on romance so it's not really like this typical Korean drama. But still, it also had some entertaining scenes. First episodes were not that exceptional but when I continued watching the drama it got more and more intense.(I could write so much more about it but I'm afraid nobody will agree with me, haha xD)

I recommend to watch this drama if you like to watch dramas with more serious topic. You may check it out but I can't guarantee you will like it because everyone have different tastes.

I hope this review was helpful to someone. Thank you~ I hope there is someone who enjoyed this drama :)

(PS! I wasn't sure how should I rate the music because I don't remember about it anymore. But it couldn't be the worst or totally excellent, otherwise I would have remebered :D)
