::: SYNOPSIS

DRAMA AND STORY OVERVIEW

from: Korea Sparkling

The drama City Hall attracted a great deal of attention before it had even started airing on TV. It was produced by drama writer Kim Eun Sook and producer Shin Woo Chul, who were behind the incredibly popular dramas, “Lovers in Paris” and “On Air”, and who are considered to be a drama dream team. The drama is set in a fictional city called called Inju City, where a woman who had one of the lowest ranks in the civil service, is suddenly elected to be the city’s mayor. Shin Mi Rae (played by actress Kim Sun Ah) and a crafty high-ranking official named Jo Guk (played by actor Cha Seung Won) come together in this romantic black comedy set in a political organization. The drama revealed the lives of the people in Korea’s political organizations, especially the everyday dramas that take place in the regional cities. The drama has a realistic style, and viewers got caught up in the romances, intrigues, and scandals of Inju’s City Hall.

Shin Mi Rae is the lowest ranking public servant working in Inju City Hall. Her main job is to serve coffee to the high-ranking public officials. She seems to be rather ordinary and has nothing special to brag about. She doesn’t have an outstanding academic ability, financial means, or a well-connected family to help her stand out from the crowd. One day, however, she takes part in a beauty contest, in the hope of winning the cash prize, and gets fired from the City Hall for having “damaged the reputation of a civil servant.” To everyone’s surprise, however, she returns to the City Hall elected as the new mayor of Inju. Her ordinary image moved the hearts of the town’s citizens, and with the help of the powerful Jo Guk, she wins the election. After she is elected, she begins to reform the bureaucratic culture of the City Hall administration and becomes a truly great mayor who is genuinely working for her people.

NOTE: Romanization of names were changed for consistency.

SYNOPSIS

from: SBS Global

Shin Mi Rae is a civil servant who’s been working at a very low post for the last seven years. Known for her great coffee, she falls in love with Jo Guk, the new deputy mayor. Mi Rae has a great deal of credit card debt, so she enters a beauty pageant to win the first prize of 20,000,000 won (approximately 20,000 dollars). But when the prize money ends up in the mayor’s pocket, Mi Rae holds a one-person demonstration in front of city hall. After a series of ups and downs, Mi Rae gets her prize money, but has no choice but to resign from her job. When the situation is leaked to the press, the mayor resigns as well. The job of mayor is up for grabs and Mi Rae becomes nominated as a mayoral candidate with the support of her followers and Jo Guk, the deputy mayor. Will Mi Rae rewrite history as the youngest female mayor ever? What is Jo Guk’s real intention in helping make Mi Rae mayor?

character01miraecmprsd.jpg

SHIN MI RAE

from: Korea Sparkling

Aged almost forty, she ends up taking part in a beauty contest in the hope of winning the cash prize to solve her financial problems. To many people’s surprise, she is elected as the mayor of Inju to replace the mayor that she had a role in bringing down. She knows nothing about politics and has no political background to lean on, but she fights her way to victory and due to her genuine nature wins the hearts of the people. She establishes her own solutions and policies by seeking to serve the people’s real interests and their needs. Unlike a typical politician, she actually executes what she believes in and despite numerous mistakes and tearful episodes, she becomes a mayor who is respected by everyone.

character02jogukcmprsd.jpg

JO GUK

from: Korea Sparkling

Jo Guk is the kind of politician who does not hesitate to use his people to accomplish his own purposes. He is a cold-hearted, cool-headed character who believes that with enough power and cash, he can make anyone a mayor, a congressman, or even a president. His ambition is to become the president of Korea one day, but he runs up against this woman who challenges his beliefs. Shin Mi Rae was elected only to be a puppet mayor for his political ambition, but she begins do have her own thoughts and do real work for the people. Jo Guk decides to remove her but finds that this is difficult to do, as she will not be swayed by political power or cash bribes.

character03joohwacmprsd.jpg

MIN JOO HWA

from: Korea Sparkling

Min Joo Hwa has worked hard to be the perfect woman and the envy of others. She is a typical glamorous female character with a pretty face and a good figure, but behind all her glamour, she hides a great political ambition. Originally she wanted to be the Hillary Clinton of Korea, but she realized that her husband had no chance of becoming president, so with her good looks and large quantities of cash, she decides to get into politics herself. One day, Shin Mi Rae , who she regarded as such a trivial person, returns to the City Hall as mayor. To add salt to the wound, Min Joo Hwa’s husband, who up until now didn’t have the slightest interest in politics, emerges as a strong sponsor of Shin.

character04jungdocmprsd.jpg

*Jung Do, eventually, did not become the Deputy Mayor.

LEE JUNG DO

from: Korea Sparkling

He got married because of his wife’s glamorous looks and the irresistible temptation of her money. However, the marriage does not go too smoothly and they end up living separately. One day, he resigns from City Hall due to his involvement in the beauty contest, which Shin took part in. Despite her low ranking position, Shin was the only person he confided in. When Shin is elected mayor, he returns to the City Hall and becomes a vice mayor working as her right hand. His wife is unhappy about the situation, but nevertheless he tries to be a protective umbrella for Shin, so that she can live up to the beliefs for the people.

NOTE: Not really accurate. >.<

MI-RAE's CIRCLE

yoongwonja.jpg

• Park Joo Ha as Yoo Gwon Ja (64)

Mi Rae's mother

Has been selling Baendaengi (a type of herring fish) at the Inju Central Market for 30 years. She spent her whole life being jealous about everything in the world and scolding Mi Rae from the moment she opens her eyes till she falls asleep. Although she scolds Mi Rae for wandering around and not making a good living for herself, she knows very well that Mi Rae resembles her. She is a very stubborn lady who stands firm to her opinions. Both her and Mi Rae are unbeatable. If she can't win an argument against her daughter, she would much rather spend all her energy up and end her life. However, she starts to feel very uneasy about Mi Rae after she becomes the Mayor. Acting like a graceful Mayor's mother is very… difficult.

jungboomi.jpg

• Jung Soo Young as Jung Boo Mi (36)

Mi Rae's friend

She is a low-ranking public servant (9th grade), Mi Rae's classmate and a tough mother of three children. She is blunt and cold towards people, but she has a deep mind. Although she has a close relationship with Mi Rae, she is strongly against lending money to her. Instead, she has contributed to Mi Rae's long unemployed lifestyle by buying her food and drinks. It's also her duty to support her unemployed husband along with her three children. What comes out of her mouth is profanity and dissatisfaction about her sucky life, but aside from that, she is a very hard working person!

villagechief.jpg

• xxx as Village Chief (59)

Cheonkang Village Chief

His real name is Kim Chun Bong. He is the Head of Inju Village Council. Being re-appointed as a village chief officer, he is quite a conceited man who thinks no one else is good enough to be a village chief except him. However, his real dream is becoming a county chief officer. During his earlier days, all of his friends had become city councilors except for him. He believes being a county chief officer will at least boost up his reputation. But Mi Rae, who he always thought was easygoing, is quite tough to persuade. Having worked very hard to make a good impression to Mi Rae, he naturally becomes the county chief officer.

JO GUK's CIRCLE

bigbrother.jpg

• Choi Il Hwa as Big Brother / BB (64)

Former Speaker of the National Assembly

He is Jo Guk's mentor. He is the key player who helped the current President become the President of Korea. He thought he would become the prime minister, but he placed second instead. At the President's Inaugural ceremony, he announced his retirement as a politician. Currently, he is known by the press as just an ordinary man who enjoys going on hikes. However, he is secretly planning something for the next presidency term, which makes him a cruel politician. He has full trust in Jo Guk, but also keeps a distance because of Jo Guk's greed. There are rumors that he is Jo Guk's father.

hasooin.jpg

• Lee Joon Hyuk as Ha Soo In (28)

Jo Guk's Secretary

You can never tell what’s on his mind. He is smart, quick-witted and somewhat sensitive. He assists Jo Guk full time and never shows his personal feelings to anyone. Although he is Jo Guk's trusted right-hand man, he occasionally keeps in contact with BB, privately giving out information about Jo Guk. He doesn't hide nor reveal his real identity to Jo Guk. He supports Jo Guk, while playing the spy role for BB.

joyonghee.jpg

• Cha Hwa Yun as Jo Yong Hee (59)

Jo Guk's Mother

Her trademarks are her dark make-up, red nail polish and high heels. She is usually full of nerves and her pale appearance makes her look as if she'll slit her wrist anytime. To hide her past of selling water, Jo Guk opened up a flower shop for her. She suffers from depression and becomes vicious. Jo Guk is the son of the man who ruined her life. Even though the man told her to get an abortion, she never did. Her well off son is gradually becoming more like his father, which makes her scared…

jorang.jpg

• Kim Jin Sung as Jo Rang (9)

Jo Guk's adopted son

He is Jo Guk's adopted son. He is very mature for his age. He likes his dad, although he rarely spends time with him. He also likes his grandma, although she doesn't like him back. He likes to smile and follow his dad around the neighborhood. He doesn't smile just to make a good impression on his dad. He smiles because he's happy to spend time with his dad while holding his hand.

gogohae.jpg

• Yoon Se Ah as Go Go Hae (27)

Jo Guk's fiancée

She is Jo Guk's fiancée and the daughter of a well-known business tycoon. She's elegant and carries herself with grace and dignity. She met Jo Guk and got engaged to him through political reasons, yet she would fall in love in the same way. She has never doubted Jo Guk's ability of becoming Korea's best politician. She dreams of becoming the First Lady.

sohyoohan.jpg

• Choi Sang Hoon as Soh Yoo Han (60)

Governor of Mooyang Province* (*Province that governs Inju City)

He is a man full of ambition. He's one of the few people that are against BB's return to the political circle. He's a very greedy man that would do anything to take away something from someone to make it his own. To achieve his goals, he keeps Jo Guk by his side. But after finding out Jo Guk is part of BB's side, he tries to put Jo Guk in danger.

JOO-HWA's CIRCLE

gobooshil.jpg

• Yum Dong Hun as Go Boo Shil (55)

Incumbent re-elected Mayor of Inju City

Whatever situation he is in, he remains calm. He is very thick-skinned and would do anything to sneak out of danger. He's easily influenced by what others say and has no thoughts. He backstabs Shin Mi-Rae and tries to put her in danger, but ends up withdrawing from his Mayor position.

boojunghan.jpg

• Park Tae Kyung as Boo Jung Han (52)

Third-time re-elected Congressman

He's an opportunist that is precise and accurate in everything he does. He dislikes people who are unreliable and whiny.

I have to say, City Hall is pretty darn good - really, really good. We just finished Ep 13 (almost caught up!). Initially, I thought the story line would be about a predictable story about a young woman who rises from nothing to become mayor of a city, but really, that’s just the backdrop.

The story is really a love story between a simple woman who tries to be everything to everyone and guy who knows he cannot be everything to everyone, and how these two individuals are literally heading into a hurricane of a drama series ending they cannot avoid - the woman is approaching the storm with courage despite her fears, unable to see what is about to come (but can feel something will happen), and the man approaches the storm with sadness and uncertainty, seeing everything and all the angles but cannot help himself because of what he feels, and doesn’t even know what he will do in the end.

The woman (KSA fighting!) Shin Mirae, is a simple individual with not much education or political experience, but she is a good person with firm convictions, integrity and common sense. She is also a cutie with a heart as large as the ocean, and depth of emotion enough to fill the ocean’s basin.

The man (Cha Seung Won) is a revelation for his acting performance, waaaay better than I expected. He is the rising star in Korean national politics, with an unbeatable pedigree, the most powerful connections, top ranks in school, and with the ruthlessness and cunning to survive, and a beautiful, elegant, rich and politically-connected fiance. He is the complete package. His initial exile to Mirae’s city has him crossing paths with Shin Mirae, and they are then forever connected. What he sees in Shin Mirae is a beautiful but naive fairy tale, and the hurricane that will soon envelop both of them will very likely force him to make a choice between the fairy tale and his lifelong dream of marching toward the Korean presidency and occupancy in the Blue House.

This is a love story, and like all good love stories, it gnaws at your bones, and you itch when you can’t watch the next episode. Granted, the first 3 episodes are someone clumsy and a little to riotous for my taste, but it is just set up, so don’t despair if you don’t like it much. City Hall gets better, quickly, and a lot, and stays that way.

"The BEST drama I’ve seen for a while! One that makes you smile fondly, laugh hysterically, sob uncontrollably, pull your hair in frustration, gasp in surprise, wait impatiently, hope fervently, .. All these & more…"

by:

What is great with CH is not just the characters of SMR, or JG, or GuMi, or Boo-Mi, JLG and his on-going love for his "spoiled" wife. It's also their relationships and the supporting roles of Soo-In, the righteous Chairman, Gwon Ja and BB learning to be a supportive parent, Hae Ra's knot, JG's mother blossoming in the flower shop, Rang having a loving dad, Bureau Directors on SMR's side, Secretary Park's funny faces, or Councilor Park. It's got to do with the music, the lyrics, the laughs, the tears, the translations. It's all got to do with dreaming. From drama to dream, you just have to change one letter. After watching the show, we feel at peace, simply happy. That's why it is so addictive: we miss and need it, despite some emotional roller-coaster.

I am amazed and super impressed! I really have no regrets watching CH. And every episode topped the previous!

I'm actually very satisfied with this ending.

wow it's really awesome...i like the ending...

What a beautiful story.

The writer gave it all....well done, fantastic ending.

EXCELLENT DRAMA! (:

this drama is so sweet

I have to say that the scriptwriter has once again outdone her other dramas which made City Hall her best drama ever!

Everything about the drama seemed to match. I really really enjoyed .

-

What a beautiful ending to a fantastic drama! definitely a must-watch drama of the year!

WoW fantastic show. KSA has outdone herself in acting in another fantastic drama.

Definitely one of my top 5 dramas of all time.

I have no doubt CH will like other 'trendy drama' classics, eg MNIKSS, Coffee Prince, will keep on enticing new fans in the years to come.

The City Hall was a beautiful emotional roller coaster. I'm a little dizzy but I'm getting in line for another ride. Wheee!!!

I enjoyed the ride and i will keep coming back for more!

A beautiful & fulfilling ending to an amazing drama! The scriptwriter surprised us all even on the last episode is such an amazing way. Im addicted to KSA& CSW. Best on screen couple I ever saw in any K-drama.

Absolute perfection nonetheless.

Perfect in every way.

What a great ending. What a great story. This is an epic story. I blinked away tears, I laughed through tears and I cheered through tears. They finally got it right. Easily the best drama of 2009 in my view, and one of the best dramas I've ever seen.

I think this is the Best Drama ever. My hat's off to KSA...More and more, KSA has again proven what a great actress she. is.

Best Series of this year !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was late in the ride, but I felt lucky I did not miss the journey.

This is now my #1 all time favorite - move over BBF!!! City Hall just took your spot.

This series had exceeded my expectations and more!

This drama leaves me full of joy.

Must see K-drama for year 2009.

Best Drama Ever! I loved it all.

I'm TOTALLY in love with this couple pairing!! KSA and CSW have outdone themselves this time!

It was just perfect! I love every bit of it.

No other drama has ever made me wanted to be in love.

LOVE THIS DRAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To me the ending of epi 20 is like a spectacular fireworks finale, each explosion grander than the last..., gushing with emotion & excitement!!!

City Hall reminds me that kdramas can be enjoyable with its main leads alone!

I appreciate how writer Kim delivered a strong, charismatic and cheerful character in her story....

This is one of the best written, directed and acted dramas I've seen and will definitely be on my favorites list. The chemistry between the two leads is off the hook. It was definitely a drama that took you on a number of emotional roller coasters. One minute you were crying and the next you were laughing hysterically. The drama showed you how each character evolved.

I totally loved this drama, very good chemistry between the two leads and every single detail holds meaning.

I have not loved a drama this much in years.

"THIS IS ONE DRAMA YOU HAVE TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE"

This is one of the best k-dramas I've seen.

Truly one of the best dramas of 2009.

It is truly one of the best kdrama.

That's how the last episode of every drama should end. Satisfied me on so many levels. Left no stone unturned.

This drama is super amazing awesome! The chemistry is undeniable!

Best story Line.

i miss city hall... sad.gif i wish it went on forever..T.T

i loved this drama!!! kim sun ah is such a great actress!!!!

i am loving this show so much!!! cha seung won is cool and perfect in this drama! So dreamy. ~('-*)~

and kim sun ah is just awesome to watch! :]

the chemistry between CSW and KSA is just so powerful, they are the best screen couple ever!!! i do hope CSW will partner KSA again in the near future! really can't get over this City Hall typhoon!

Now I can say that this is my all tme favorite Korean drama to date. The story is so rich and the actors are all great.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR ANYONE WHO LIKES "MY LOVE KIM SAM-SOON" AND ANY WORTHY DRAMAS!!!!

I really like chemistry between KSA and CSW. The character suits them well.

this is really a good draaaaaaamaaa..

this is a drama that really touched me. It pulled at my heart strings, and made me laugh and cry

I think this drama has everything, you have your melodrama, comedy, romance and some actions.

CH is extraordinary.

Watching CH hall didn't feel like any other dramas... It's very refreshing and new to me. It's like discovering new genre of kdrama.

AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS DRAMA. And honestly for such a long long time, I havent felt so moved and excited over a drama

i was pretty glued to my seat watching it ^^ and the main lead didnt hurt, he is so handsome! and Kim Sun ah is an awesome actress!

really love this drama! i just finished watching it and rewatching it again!!! soo good! i love it ! and its even better the second time around! such good actors, and chemistry is amazing!

I don't think there's ever going to be a drama that will make me feel this way again.

I dont believe I will find another drama who will affect me as strongly as City Hall did.

The interaction between the 2 main characters are amazing! I love seeing the fireworks in them.

I love this drama ... I found a nice story as well .. I admire a lot of Kim Sun Ah is very charismatic .. .. whenever I see makes me laugh with their occurrences ... also think that was a great chemistry with CSW in CITY HALL. .. to a nice couple

watching this drama it so cute...it so funny. I don't feel bored watching

the best....It made my day wonderful.

Ms. Kim, the writer, certainly used her superb skill her in keeping her the audience interested and on the edge of their seat with every episodes.

City Hall DVDs should have a label on it * warning, after watching, you will never be the same, and City Hall will always rent a room in your heart*

it's just an irresistable show and quite different than what the title would have suggested.

I have to say, this drama got me hooked. It has been a while since I got hooked by a drama like this.

This has to be my top 10 kdramas of all time.

Truly, City Hall is a drama worth watching.

::: TRIVIAS

Ryu Shin Won was initially casted as Jo Guk but he backed out. [
]

This drama is Cha Seung Won's return to television after 6 years.

Jo Guk's role landed on Cha Seung Won's hands because of actress Song Yoon Ah (On Air) [
]

Inju is a fictional city used for the setting of the drama. But filming was mostly held in Incheon City (whose old name was indeed Inju)

Carlos Gardel's "Por Una Cabeza" was the music used in Jo Guk and Mi Rae's Tango Scene on Episode 4. [
] It was the same music used in Al Pacino's movie "Scent Of A Woman" [
]

Kim Sun Ah wore the same Tango Shoes on Episode 4 as what she wore on her Tango Performance with Rain in Me.Rain.Dance - just different colors (red on Me.Rain.Dance; black on City Hall) [
]
© by
*alodia* & amay

Unlike other dramas, OST for City Hall will only be released after 8 Episodes. Reason: City Hall OST will be part of their Musical Director Noh Young Shim's Piano Concert on May 20-21st 2009 at the LG Arts Center [
]. The main theme "Kurae Nareul Midja" was released earlier though - May 11th 2009 in Digital Music. A additional Bonus Track, "Saranghago Saranghamnida" was released sometime in June and as Digital Music only.

Kim Sun Ah completed the entire "Fresh Woman" (of Rain) dance while filming Episode 2. Unfortunately it was edited to a mere 8-second clip. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdSjQqJ4Z58]

Korean Netizen's nicknamed Cha Seung Won & Kim Sun Ah as
"Patriotic Couple"
(애국커플
ae-guk
) [
]; Soompiers prefer to call them
"GuMi"
- a combination of Jo
Gu
k and Shin
Mi
Rae's name (though
icesiren
calls them Mi-Gook). Kim Sun Ah calls them as
Rae-Kuk
, another way to combine Shin Mi
Rae
and Jo G/
Kuk
.

Cha Seung Won said this drama is the least stressful compared to his previous works; Kim Sun Ah said she thinks this was one of the most physically draining dramas that she'd done.
:lol:

SOURCE:

Though, this drama is their first project together, Cha Seung Won and Kim Sun Ah first appeared together in a 1998 Talk Show "Say Say Say". [
] [video soon]

Previews for every episode were regularly shown at the end of each episode except for Episode 1, Episode 17 and Episode 19's preview.

A real online blog (cyworld) for the fictional character Shin Mi Rae is being maintained all throughout the time the drama was airing. [
]

Jung Boo Mi's eldest kid is named Min-Ji. It is the same name as Scriptwriter Kim Eun Sook's kid.

When Chairman Kang said "This fellow has been so unsuccessful growing up" on Episode 5, it seems he was talking about Jung Do - but in fact he was referring to Jo Guk.

When Jo Guk said "Mi Rae is mine" on Episode 12, it was not part of the script, rather an adlib from Cha Seung Won. [
]

Scriptwriter Kim Eun Sook considers this drama as the most difficult and "heaviest" among her works. [
]

More trivias from Scriptwriter Eun Sook [
] [
] [
] [
] [
] [
]

Cha Seung Won jokingly said, "Wouldn't it be fitting to end (the drama) on Jo Guk getting the presidency?" [source]

It took 6 hours for them to film the rain scene on Episode 18 [source]

Kim Sun Ah wore the same earrings on Episode 4 as what she wore on "When It's At Night" Episode 5 (and some other episodes) [
]

Ewha Women's University - the school that Madam Jung "said" she attended is the same school that Cha Seung Won's wife attended too.[
] [
]

Moon River - the romantic music used on the "Proposal Scene" on Episode 20 was also used on the drama "Lovers in Paris" (Episode 2, Episode ?) and "On Air" (Episode ?); a trademark of Scriptwriter Eun Sook and PD Woo Chul?

Unusual ending: The drama ends with Epilogues and Prologues intertwined with each other. It started with the usual 1 year later; however it was followed by 5 more years later, afterwards we were brought back 8 years ago, then somewhere in between present time and before 5 years later, and lastly back to 5 years later. Whew!

When Boo Mi asked her husband, Han Ryang, "Why are you spending your weekends with other women" on Episode 18, it was because actor Lee Sang Hoon is on "Brilliant Legacy" too, a weekend drama airing at the time City Hall was airing as well. It's the writer's wit and sense of humor.

Lee Sang Hoon (Han Ryang, Boo Mi's husband) is delivering messages between Kim Sun Ah (City Hall) and Lee Seung Ki (Brilliant Legacy) who are good friends.

The "Proposal Dance" of Mi Rae and Jo Guk on Episode 20, resembles Barrack & Michelle Obama's first inaugural dance.

Korean fans, from DC Inside City Hall Gallery wrote their own version of 멜로 포기 각서 (Surrender of Body Memorandum). Writer Kim Eun Sook saw it and printed them out and she made Kim Sun Ah and Cha Seung Won sign it.

The famous City Hall dialogue "Negayo? Yegayo?" was used by Kim Sun Ah on her Max Beer CF (after City Hall was aired) [
]

::: CITY HALL FYIs

Song Hye Kyo's picture was used by one of the Ms. Baendaengi applicants on her application form (Episode 1)

Mi Rae wrote 조국 바보 똥개 on the dog house, which means "Jo Guk - Stupid mutt" (Episode 1) and later that's how she nicknamed him on her cellphone 바보 똥개 Stupid Mutt (Episode 10 onwards).

Jo Guk wrote 얘 또라이야, 죽여버려 on a piece of paper, which means "She's a lunatic, kill her" (Episode 2)

On Episode 7 Mi Rae told Jo Guk that her ex-boyfriend looks like Hyun Bin and told her that she is really cute and he wants to put her on his pocket - a dialogue derived from Hyun Bin's lines as Hyun Jin Hun on his and Sun Ah's all-time hit drama My Name Is Kim Sam Soon - an inside joke and definitely a treat among Kim Sun Ah, My Name Is Kim Sam Soon and SunBin fans. Kim Sun Ah even delivered the dialogue with an indirect re-enactment of her famous "Samsoon pose"

Mayor Shin Mi-Rae's Mayoral Inauguration was held June 3rd 2009.

Yoon Ki Won appeared on cameo on Episode 7 as "Hyun Bin" - Mi Rae's ex-boyfriend.

Tak Jae Hoon appeared on cameo on Episode 12 as Mi Rae's childhood oppa, Dr. Tak. (Year 2007 Kim Sun Ah appeared on cameo on his movie "Worst Guy In My Life")

Hong Ji Min appeared in a cameo on Episode 15 as the infamous Madam Jung.

The Body Contract that appeared first on Episode 10 was amended - as shown on Episode 18 [
] [
]

Mi Rae's email addresses: Personal: Smr@goodmail.net (Episode 8) Work E-mail: mirae74@inju.go.kr (Episode 18)

Mi Rae's birthday is on April 18, 1974

Jo Guk's email address: JK2009@naver.com (Episode 16)

Boo Mi's email address: Jbm@goodmail.net (Episode 8)

Boo Mi's birhday is on August 12, 1974 (Episode 8)

Since Mi Rae is still the mayor 6 years later, it means she was re-elected twice.

The cheer "Jo Moo Yong" on Epsiode 20 and Episode 14 is an acronym of the name of Jo Guk's fan's club:
국과 민족의
궁한
광을 위하여
Jo
Guk kwa Minjookeui
Mu
gunghan
Yong
kwangeul wilhayeo (Boundless glory for Jo Guk and the people)

The Designer Handbag, 명품백 (myeongpoombaek), was first mentioned by Jo Guk on Episode 5. By Jo Guk again on the early part of Episode 12. By Mi Rae on the later part of Episode 12. And was eventually seen on Episode 20.

QUOTABLE QUOTES:

(Politics is) Fighting against other political parties. It's something disgusting and scary. Regularly playing dirty tricks. It has no sincerity and is full of lies. After a little bit of sincerity, it's back to backstabbing. It's a place where honesty is jeered. In conclusion, it's dirtier than Madam Jung's skirt! However, the politics that I want is improving the lives of the people sincerely. That's all.

--- Shin Mi Rae, Episode 8

Politics is not about stepping on the person closest to you to get to the top, politics is about protecting the people you love.

BEYOND WORDS

Episode 19
When they sat in the cab - another one of those silent scenes, KSA and CSW did amazing there - I thought my heart stopped for a beat when JG released MR. Sorta like saying, "If I keep you beside me, you will get hurt. So to protect you, I need to let you go. Forgive me." And where his finger strokes her hand, it's like saying, "I know we are both going to get hurt but I just can't stay away from you. Please don't push me away." I'm SO glad MR did not withdraw her hand out of sorrow - I think that would have killed me already.

By: *alodia*

Coming to this thread is like attending a party very late. You found out about the invitation way after everybody else, and when you do enter the house, you find many guests there. You start to count them but the number is quite huge, and you wonder how you'll be able to get to know at least some of them. They have talked a lot, gotten to know each other and the atmosphere is great. Their welcome felt heartwarming and they do their best to keep you "inside" the circle as more stories are shared about the inviting host. You want to catch up but sometimes, you kind of don't dare saying things, which may have already been tackled before. It feels kind of awkward and after a while, you just stand there silently in your little corner. Listening, smiling, nodding, laughing. And it's alright. Because no matter what, you are an Inju Citizen and you were invited to the best party ever. You shall never forget about that experience, that might carry on in your heart and soul for days, months or years to come.

*Bonus Track "Saranghago Saranghamnida" not included in the album

DIGITAL MUSIC NOW AVAILABLE

at SBS.co.kr

http://wizard2.sbs.co.kr/resource/template...vMenuId=1010909

The OSTs are breathtaking, heart-tugging and extremely evocative music beautifully interpreted by the various artists/singers tasked to sing – the haunting rendition of Booranhan Sarang (Uncertain Love) by Horan, I Sarang (This Love) by Lim Hae Wook and Loving, Loving You by Park Sang Woo; the lively and bouncy tune of One Dream and Smile by Seo Moon Tak and everyone’s favorite Okay, I Believe in Myself by Bizzy. And of course, who would not remember the melodic Moon River, beautifully interpreted by Emi Fujita, lovingly providing the romantic atmosphere for the proposal scene. These songs completed the ambiance and the mood of each scene.

Another drama with Sunah. :)

She's making up to all the fans who waited for years for another drama after Sam-Soon. :)

I really wish Sun ah can do another romcom and preferrably with Rain as partner. (cant get over their dance partnership ... hehehe... :P )

A lot of fans were hoping for that, maybe next time. Hehee.

It's RSW's drama after a long while so it wud be great to see him act again.

He will also appear in the new SBS Wed/Thurs drama series "City Hall" after a four year break since his 2005 KBS drama "Wedding." He said, "This year will also be a busy year. I'll work hard."

http://english.kbs.co.kr/entertainment/new...8262_28572.html

Best of luck to Sunah & RSW's 1st collaboration.
