Super Junior’s returns to the small screen after his last drama Revolutionary Love and his dog’s biting incident. He will be playing the role of a conman Yang Jung-Kook, who marries his girlfriend (Lee Yoo-Young) who turns out to be a cop. Not only that he is chased by a scary people whom he has conned including Hoo-Ja (Kim Min-Jung). To save him and his wife’s life Jung-Kook has to run for the assembly election. It looks funny from the previews, Si-Won’s “American Gestures” should help increase the comedy level a notch. Hope it turns out to be good as we didn’t have much to see in the Mon-Tue bracket for a long time now.

As a last resort, he starts beating a civilian going for a walk in order to get caught by cops rather than the scary “unni”. The cops arrive quite fast and it turns out the civilian Jung-Kook was beating is actually a serial killer the cops were chasing.
The Hero Of The People, By The People, For The People
Jung-Kook becomes an overnight hero and even gets a bravery award from the police (awarded by his mother-in-law). This has a good and bad effect on the lives of Jung-Kook, his face is known to the public which makes it really hard for him to con other people. But on the other hand, he is always surrounded by public makes is harder for Hoo-Ja’s men to capture or kill him. Meanwhile, Hoo-Ja has other problems as well, she needs an assemblyman’s vote in order to get a bill pass/abolish which will help her business. Elsewhere, Mi-Young’s brother (not blood-related) returns from Germany and will be running in the upcoming elections. He seems to have feelings for Mi-Young, he gets called out by Hoo-Ja who wants to bribe him. But he turns her offer down and rejects to be in cahoots with her. Frustrated Hoo-Ja keeps seeing the public praise Jung-Kook is getting and a new idea comes to her mind. Elsewhere, Jung-Kook becomes a public hero again after he saves an old man (totally forced by his fans). The future doesn’t look so calm and quiet for our con man hero and his cop wife.
