Watch: Lee Jung Jae, Kim Kap Soo, And Shin Min Ah Share Realistic Look At Politics In Teaser For Drama

by J. Lim

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.”

Lee Jung-jae gets egg-spattered for Chief of Staff

by tineybeanie


A more lighthearted teaser for JTBC drama Chief of Staff has been released, depicting the daily struggles of those in the political world. This drama features Lee Jung-jae (Svaha: The Sixth Finger) as the titular chief of staff who aides for a four-time congressman with aspirations to reach the Blue House (Korean equivalent of White House), played by Kim Gab-soo (Haechi).

This drama will show the real struggle of political players and the dangerous, high-stakes games they play in order to reach the pinnacle of power. It’s a harsh fight for survival everyday for Lee Jung-jae. In his background narration, he explains his struggle, “From junior secretary to chief secretary and then to chief of staff, I’ve spent ten years cleaning up after these old men…”

But clearly the struggle hasn’t stopped because in the next frame, we see his hair being pulled and and head being hit from all angles in the midst of a violent protest. All the while, he tries to protect his congressman from a mob of reporters. At the end, he looks completely defeated, sitting with his suit torn, buttons missing, and bits of his hair ripped out.

Shin Min Ah Avoids Eye Contact When Confronted By Lee Jung Jae In “Advisor”

by S. Cho

New stills of Shin Min Ah and Lee Jung Jae have been released for JTBC’s newest Friday-Saturday drama, “Advisor” (working title).

Lee Jung Jae plays Jang Tae Joon, a “super advisor” within the dangerous world of politics, and Shin Min Ah portrays newly-selected assemblywoman Kang Sun Young.

In the photos, they face each other with very different expressions on their faces. While Tae Joon looks at Sun Young sharply, she completely avoids his gaze and looks intently at whatever is behind him. Viewers can look forward to their tense relationship and the events that will occur both to and between the pair.

Sun Young received her nomination for assemblywoman from a senator within her party, Jo Gab Young (played by Kim Hong Fa). She has a strange relationship with Tae Joon, as he is the advisor to her rival Song Hee Seob (played by Kim Kap Soo). While their exact relationship is hard to define, viewers can look forward to how these two ambitious politicians work in order to achieve their goals and how they compare to one another.

Lee Jung Jae and Shin Min Ah, who are working on their first project together, shared, “Since we have such great chemistry, we are currently filming with incredible energy.”

“Advisor” Starring Lee Jung Jae And Shin Min Ah Teases Complex Character Relationships In New Chart

by R. Jun

JTBC’s upcoming Friday-Saturday drama “Advisor” (working title) — starring Lee Jung Jae and Shin Min Ah — has revealed a new character chart, giving viewers insight into the various connections that will come into play in the drama.

“Advisor” is a drama about the political players that influence the world from the shadows. Lee Jung Jae is the ambitious “super advisor” Jang Tae Joon, and Shin Min Ah is the newly-appointed Assemblywoman Kang Sun Young.

Taking up the most real estate on the chart is Assemblyman Song Hee Seob (played by Kim Kap Soo) and his team, which includes regional advisor Oh Won Sik (Jung Woong In), secretary Yoon Hye Won (Lee Elijah), intern Han Do Kyung (ZE:A’s Kim Dong Jun), and head advisor Jang Tae Joon (Lee Jung Jae).

Just within this team, various dynamics and relationships will play out: one of trust between Yoon Hye Won and Jang Tae Joon, Han Do Kyung’s admiration of Jang Tae Joon, and the competition between Jang Tae Joon and Oh Won Sik.



In the center of the chart, we see various connections between Kang Sun Young (Shin Min Ah) and Jang Tae Joon through mutual acquaintances and colleagues.

Kang Sun Young’s head advisor is Go Seok Man (played by Im Won Hee), who is Jang Tae Joon’s friend, although the two friends are quite different in personality. Meanwhile, Jang Tae Joon’s close sunbae, Assemblyman Lee Sung Min (played by Jung Jin Young) is someone whom Kang Sun Young holds in high regard.

Premiere Watch: Chief of Staff

by stroopwafel


How good is a show that it can lure an actor back to dramaland after a decade-long absence? That’s what I wanted to know when I first heard that Lee Jung-jae would be headlining Chief of Staff. Happily, we don’t have to wait any longer to see what drew, not just Lee Jung-jae, but an entire roster of incredible actors to the show. The political drama will throw a spotlight on the players behind the seats of power and the politicians who strive to amass as much power as possible. Lee Jung-jae serves as the chief of staff to Kim Gab-soo, who has his eye on the presidency.

The ensemble cast is rounded out by Shin Mina as a freshman assemblyman and Jung Jin-young as a veteran politician and old foil of Kim Gab-soo’s. Jung Woong-in and Lee Elijah are political aides, with Kim Dong-joon joining them as a fresh-faced and unjaded intern. Political intrigue and a stellar cast have me intrigued. The drama will be split into seasons, with each season airing 10 episodes.

by J. Lim

JTBC’s new Friday-Saturday drama “Chief of Staff” (also known as “Advisor”) is finally being unveiled tonight on June 14. With anticipation high as the drama will revolve around political aides, a profession that hasn’t been the center of previous storylines, Lee Jung Jae, Shin Min Ah, Lee Elijah, and ZE:A’s Kim Dong Jun each picked something to watch for in the upcoming series.

Lee Jung Jae – “Our lives, our individual stories”

The teasers and posters for “Chief of Staff” have elicited curiosity with the tagline, “Six grams of ambition, six grams of cost.” Lee Jung Jae explained, “Viewers will be able to gain meaning, laughter, and empathy as they watch the various characters and their ambitions.” He also added, “Politics isn’t something that is far away, it is in our lives and in our individual stories and the stories around us. ‘Chief of Staff’ will encourage viewers to take a look back on their lives, and that’s a good thing to focus on.”

Shin Min Ah – “The story of political Misaengs (Incomplete life)”

This will be the first time Shin Min Ah plays a congresswoman since making her debut as an actress, and she hopes to show a new side of herself. She explained, “‘Chief of Staff’ is a drama that reflects the greed and competitive lives of political misaengs.” The actress also stated, “As this is the first drama that deals with political aides, viewers will find lots of things to be intrigued about.”


Lee Elijah – “A story that transcends politics and is about one person”

Lee Elijah said, “As the story of political aides that has never been seen in a drama before, ‘Chief of Staff’ will be the start of real political play unfolding in front of viewers.” She also added, “Though it will be important to keep an eye on what each character does for their political careers, ‘Chief of Staff’ goes beyond politics and tells the story of people who do all they can to protect their lives and survive.” In Lee Elijah’s words, the drama will be one viewers can easily relate to.
