He becomes a cool-headed M&A expert, and makes plans to break TS Group with Do Jae-myeong who has pried into TS Group like him. While trying into TS Group for the revenge, he learns that the president Chae is just a bad guy. Behind all the evil acts, there was the president Chae’s son, Chae Do-wu.

Tan I think it will be great if remake this drama to saeguk, with kingdom setting.. Becau a Man wannabe king, and a women wannabe queen

Rutuja Ratings seem good, but only 33 votes? :/ still gonna watch this because of Phillip Lee :D

Gasenadi Please, please include actress Kim Mi-Kyung in the credits. Her role as the detective from Seoul who comes to investigate the Mayor's death adds so much to this already addictive drama. (Uh... I've got to learn NOT to read other comments before finishing; there are ALWAYS those immature spoilers.) GREAT drama, highly recommended.

Kevin-d-MaN-yakk yeah ending is kinda vague...i mean major major vague

cathy This is the first time that i find in K drama actresses are more compatible to the actors , good drama , worth to watch .
