Lee Jung Jae Powers Through A Hectic Schedule In “Chief Of Staff”
JTBC’s upcoming Friday-Saturday drama “Chief of Staff” (also known as “Advisor”) has revealed new stills of Lee Jung Jae!
“Chief of Staff” is a drama about the political players that influence the world from the shadows. Lee Jung Jae plays the ambitious “super advisor” Jang Tae Joon, while Shin Min Ah will take on the role of the newly-appointed Assemblywoman Kang Sun Young.
Jang Tae Joon graduated at the top of his class in the police academy but turned to politics as he sought more power. Since then, he was given the nickname of “Fall Viper” and currently serves as senior aide to congressman Song Hee Seob (Kim Kap Soo). Due to his responsibilities, even 24 hours isn’t enough for Jang Tae Joon’s hectic life.
In the released stills, Jang Tae Joon begins his day by waking up early to go jogging outside. He smiles through interviews with ease, and leads other aides at a conference with his unique charisma. Though he is respectful in front of Song Hee Seob, in one photo, he is pushed against the wall and faces an intense situation. In another image, he dominates the room with his sharp gaze and begins an inquiry.
The production staff stated, “The hectic life of Tae Joon will be realistically depicted in the first episode tonight (June 14). Although advisors were hidden from the spotlight and unknown until now, the drama will show the stories of the aides who are actually changing the world. In addition to Tae Joon, [the show] will also display the performances of various characters such as Assemblywoman Kang Sun Young (Shin Min Ah), secretary Yoon Hye Won (Lee Elijah), and intern Han Do Kyung (ZE:A’s Kim Dong Jun). Please look forward to it.”
“Chief of Staff” premieres on June 14 at 11 p.m. KST. Check out a teaser here!
