Premiere Watch: Chief of Staff

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.

I had the same response. Why why why, Korea, why!

Also Shin Mina's acting is like nails on a chalkboard for me. So unless this gets rave reviews, it's a hard pass.

I like Shin Mina, but ugh, I hate this new trend of splitting dramas into seasons. It's a perfectly good story told in 20 episodes - why the need to divide it into 2 parts? I would think the format of "season" is more suited to long TV shows.

I've seen Shin Mina in Gumiho and Oh My Venus, didn't find her that bad ... maybe she's better in fluffy rom-coms. But this drama reminds me of Scandal for some reason. Why do I get the feeling that this season will end in a cliffhanger ...

I'm really excited! First, the story after all the WednesdayThursday love stories, a true political drama is welcomed ! Secondly, I really like the casting! I'm happy to see Lee Jung Jae in a drama and Shin Mina in a serious role.
I don't care there are several seasons if the story is written for a specific number.

Split in two seasons had Netflix written all over it, and yes, in the US it's Netflix. Is it really two seasons or will they just hack one drama in half again?

Oh, I should have known it was going to be on Netflix when the two seasons thing came out. At least it has a set date unlike with Kingdom.

Does anyone know how long we have to wait between seasons? The main reason I watch kdramas is because I get to binge-watch and then move on. I don't have the loyalty to wait an entire year (I am fickle, what can I say?).

Oh weird, it's probably a money issue and a storytelling issue. With the cast they will probably have more advertising dollars. They must have a huge story to tell. 2 seasons huh. Also this is less American and more Netflix/European, a proper American season is 22 episodes.

I think it might be more of a Netflix issue. I'm bitter about My First Love, the Korean drama that's two seasons but it's really a 16 part K-drama chopped in half.

The one I'm upset with is Kingdom on Netflix. Yeah, get me all into a zombie Sageuk and then leave me with a cliffhanger and a "we'll be back when we're back." Thanks a heap, Netflix.

Yeah, I'm bitter too especially because they haven't said when the second half with air. It probably is a Netflix thing with the splitting of seasons, also just kind of stupid. I meant having 10 episodes is European thing, 10 episodes is considered a very short American season or a final American season to wrap up a story.

Meh is right. I wish they'd just leave the K-drama format alone.

I'm a recently converted Netflix addict and consuming most of the content they keep churning out I guess this will be another series to devour.
