Watch: Lee Jung Jae, Kim Kap Soo, And Shin Min Ah Share Realistic Look At Politics In Teaser For Drama
JTBC’s upcoming Friday-Saturday drama “Advisor” (tentative title) has released a new teaser showing realistic insight into the life of politicians.
“Advisor” will tell the story of real political players who move the world behind the spotlight as they engage in dangerous gambles and fight for power. Lee Jung Jae will play Jang Tae Joon, a talented advisor to assemblyman Song Hee Seob, played by Kim Kap Soo. Shin Min Ah will take on the role of Kang Sun Young, a newly-elected member of the Assembly.
The teaser begins with Jang Tae Joon casually walking through a park with a cup of coffee. However, the narration has a more desperate tone to it as Song Hee Seob says, “We have to go to the Blue House together,” while Jang Tae Joon replied, “Do you know how hard it was to get here? From a regular staff member to a secretary to an advisors? I’ve held on for 10 years, picking up after old men.”
The road is rough for Jang Tae Joon, as he finds himself surrounded by protestors, having his hair pulled and his clothes ripped as he tries to protect Song Hee Sob. He looks out of it as he drinks some water in the aftermath but he smiles and says, “In order to catch a whale, you have to go through some broken fishing poles and hand injuries.”
Song Hee Seob is a seasoned politician, even when he suffers injuries at the hands of protestors, he smiles and says, “It’s normal for politicians to grow with a few hits.” Meanwhile, Kang Sun Young has her arms crossed as she jokes to Jang Tae Joon, “You’re quite sexy?” and he scoffs at her, eliciting curiosity for what the relationship is between the two.
The staff stated, “We’ve released a video that shows the realistic side of the life of advisors. We are doing our best to create a great and fun drama, so we hope people will tune in when the drama makes its premiere.”
“Advisor” will air its first episode at 11 p.m. KST on June 14.
