A politician out of a job in tvN’s The Great Show
I never really thought much of Song Seung-heon (Player) until he started taking on comedic roles, which he’s been surprisingly good at. Which is why I’m glad to see him continuing his laugh-filled trend with his latest drama The Great Show, also starring Im Joo-hwan (Different Dreams) and Lee Sun-bin (Sketch). And if this newest teaser is any indication, we can look forward to several laughs at Song Seung-heon’s expense.
The teaser begins with shots of Song Seung-heon on the campaign trail. He’s a well-known figure for having become the youngest politician to hold a seat in the National Assembly, and things are looking good for his re-election campaign. There are volunteers and crowds sporting his color purple at street rallies and his campaign headquarters, but it all comes to nothing when his opponent wins his seat, leaving him and his purple-clad supporters dejected.
Song Seung-heon narrates that “when a politician loses an election, he’s not even a person.” Well, that’s a little bleak, but doesn’t seem like an understatement, when we see him looking despondent on his toilet, acting as a chauffeur, and throwing a fit in front of one of those claw machines. No glimpse yet of the four children who one day show up on his doorstep claiming to be his kids, but I do wonder whether one of his many faces of shock and horror are in reaction to this discovery.
The Great Show will air on tvN starting August 26.
