Dae Mul Episode 1

Synopsis Dae Mul Episode 1


Drama based on Manhwa by Park In kwon of the same name that was published in sports newspaper. The story about Civil rights lawyer Seo Hye-rim jumps into the political race with Ha Ryu and becomes the first female president but then liberties has be made for changes

Anchorwoman Seo Hye-rim (Go Hyun Jung) while protesting about her husband’s undeserved death after a political mismanagement, enters politics by proposal of Kang Tae San (Cha In Pyo) who is a member of the ruling party and a strong candidate for the next presidential elections. With the help of Ha Doya (Kwon Sang Woo) who he had known since her childhood days, Seo Hye-rim eyes the position of president as well & Kang Tae-san, who has no thoughts of yielding to Seo Hye Rim, become rivals and clash against each other.

Daemul is based on the second of the series of artist Park In Kwon’s comic of the same name that it can be summarized as ‘The project to create Korea’s first female president’, but it differentiates itself in the characteristics of the main characters and its structure. Seo Hye Rim’s job has changed from being a female human rights lawyer to an anchorwoman-turned- environmental activist. The role of a back-stabbing womanizer-turned prosecutor that Ha Do Ya has taken on has changed as well — he is a combination of the Ha Doya and Ha Ryu brothers from the comic. How the absence of Ha Ryu who was a key character in the comic, will be substituted will be crucial to the series.

In the end, Daemul is about ‘the good president that all citizens want’. Seo Hye-rim is close to the fantasy for viewers who dream of the ideal president but the incidents derived from reality suggest that Daemul will not end as a mere fantasy. We hope President Seo Hye-rim will have to face in her task to capture the hearts of people who are divided up with dramatic opinions.

Those who have seen Geena Davis “Commander In Chief” may take this in comparison on how issue will be tackles in the drama & in realistic of politics. If we look at the drama to be seen as completely divorce for modern politics then it will be seen unreal with the recent events of such as the sinking of a submarine & impeachment of a President appear. The sunken submarine, the controversy over humiliating diplomacy, an impeached president, a camera reporter who loses his life after being kidnapped in a disputed area, & a beautiful curator who uses artwork to lobby, will surely contains incidents which can be recognized by anyone who has watched even a little bit of news, is a fantasy and as well as satire of Korea’s political scene, in which I am about to thread on unchartered waters….politics is certainly not my deftness.

President Motorcade leaves Cheon Wa Dae as the guard at the gate salutes the leaving motorcade then leads to the highway as the flags of Korea & President Flag flies, then reaching the airport to embark on a awaiting plane that is on the runway tarmac laid with red carpet, President Seo Hye Rim alight from her limousine with rather high heels shoes, an official opens an umbrella to shed her from the sunshine.

President Seo Hye Rim orders to launch a rescue operation for the submarine crew at once. The Arms Force Chief tells that they already has been deploy but the response is not favourable as the Chinese Navy has blockage the areas for trespassing their waters. The Arms Force Chief tells that if they sent Military personnel to rescue the submarine crew to enter Chinese water, then it will be seen as a threat of war of engagement for the Chinese.

Poktanju or bomb shot is literally a mixed drink of one shot of Soju toss into a pint of beer.
