Watch: Ra Mi Ran Gets A 2nd Chance To Become Mayor In Comedic Teasers For “Honest Candidate” Sequel
The sequel to the 2020 hit comedy film “Honest Candidate” has dropped posters and a trailer!
The first film is about Joo Sang Sook (Ra Mi Ran), a National Assembly member who suddenly finds herself unable to lie right before a new round of elections, even though her entire political career until now has been based on lies.
In “Honest Candidate 2,” Ra Mi Ran will reprise her role as Joo Sang Sook, who is now an unemployed, former National Assembly member. She will be joined by Kim Moo Yeol returning as her trusty aide Park Hui Cheol and Yoon Kyung Ho as her immature husband Bong Man Shik. Joining the sequel’s cast are Seo Hyun Woo, Park Jin Joo, and Highlight’s Yoon Doo Joon.
The chaotic first new poster features Joo Sang Sook and her team as they prepare for her dramatic return as a National Assembly member. The top half of the poster features original cast members Ra Mi Ran, Kim Moo Yeol, and Yoon Kyung Ho posing comedically beside a giant two. On the bottom are Seo Hyun Woo, Park Jin Joo, and Yoon Doo Joon hiding behind the massive sign as the newest members of Joo Sang Sook’s posse.
In the second poster, the group is all gathered together and Joo Sang Sook and Park Hui Cheol desperately cover their own mouths. The two look shocked, as if they surprised themselves by spilling their own secrets. The poster reads, “Double the explosion of honest big mouths that cannot lie!”
“Honest Candidate 2” has also released a trailer that follows Joo Sang Sook’s second chance at political success. The clip starts off with Joo Sang Sook’s new life of unemployment after failing to become the mayor of Seoul. When she makes it on the news for a heroic deed, Joo Sang Sook realizes she has a second chance at being elected and takes hold of the opportunity.
Miraculously, she is elected governor of Gangwon Province, but both her and her aide Park Hui Cheol find themselves in unexpected trouble when they can’t shut their honest, big mouths.
