Flashback Friday: City Hall [2009]

City Hall was a romantic comedy set in the political world. The story follows the political rivalry, turned romance between Shin Mi Rae who was a government clerk, who became a beauty pageant winner, and eventually a mayor, and Jo Gook, an experienced politician who has his own presidential ambitions.

Main Cast:
Kim Sun Ah, Cha Seung Won, Chu Sang Mi, Lee Hyung Chul, and Yoon Se Ah.

My first Kim Eun Sook drama. I became an instant fan of Kim Sun Ah, and Cha Seung Won. At this point in kdrama time, I have only watched at least 20 kdramas. Needless to say, this was one of the dramas that captivated me from the simple aesthetics, local cinematography, script, soundtrack, and the actors’ portrayal – both main and supporting casts. In this drama, I was also “introduced” to Super Junior [which will be featured on another blogpost, someday]. City Hall was the first drama that I actually ordered their Director’s Editin DVD set.

To this day, City Hall remains on my top 10 all time favorite dramas.
