Korea Party nominee

KIM Jong-Chan.

And 4-term independent

candidate NOH Jae-soon.

In Daesan, a stronghold

of the ruling party,

the 21st General Election

will usher in

a generational change,

or a change of parties.

Look at all of you.

Nice effort!

Love that enthusiasm!

Bet you had a lucky dream

last night?

Welcome, y'all!

Come on in.

Welcome, sir!

Campaign Manager?

Keep up the good work!

Congressman, this is my mother.

Oh, my!

How do you do?

NOH Jae-soon

Dad, it's NOH Jae-soon again.

He never quits, does he?


Imagine working 16 years

for a guy like him?

For 16 years

you kissed my ass,

and now the whole party's

gone over to you.

That's the level

of our congressmen.

Watch yourself, Jong-Chan.

Sir, I heard about

your daily wake up calls.

So it's really true!

Who's that?

Say hi to everyone!

I had the speaker phone

turned on, sir!

How do you do, sir?


Mom, I'll be late tonight.

What? You'll be late?

I need to finish

my group art assignment.

Look me in the eye.

I'm doing it with Jahye.

From today, you and Dad

will be real busy,

so I'm going to shape up

and not cause trouble.

Then pin Jahye's number

to your memo board.

So what birthday present

do you want from Grandma?

Birthday Event So what birthday

present do you want from Grandma?

That's okay,

you don't need to buy one.

Grandma, I want

100 million won.

Anyway, I'm planning on

throwing her a party.

You're going to win.

In Daesan, when the

Korea Party primary is over,

people say

the election's over, too.

KIM JONG-CHAN The Korea Party people

say the election's over, too.

So there's not much campaigning

for the main election.

Candidate #1 KIM Jong-Chan So there's not

much campaigning for the main election.

But this year,

circumstances are different.

Let's go to Sinsung District

in Daesan.

This place is the focus of attention

after famous TV personality

KIM Jong-Chan unexpectedly

captured his party's nomination.

The district previously served as

a reliable source of votes

Candidate #5 NOH Jae-soon The district

previously served as a reliable source of votes

for four-term lawmaker

NOH Jae-soon.

Sure enough, the Korea Party's

primary was a shocker.

Candidate #5!

Pundits see it as a strategy

of MOON Hyun-sung,

who is considering a

presidential run next year.

- Candidate #1!

- KIM Jong-Chan!

- A new generation!

- KIM Jong-Chan!

- A new politics!

- KIM Jong-Chan!

- Candidate #1!

- KIM Jong-Chan!

- A new generation!

- KIM Jong-Chan!

- A new politics!

- KIM Jong-Chan!

- Candidate #1!

- KIM Jong-Chan!

- A new generation!

- KIM Jong-Chan!

The number you've dialed

cannot be connected.

Please leave a message

at the tone.


You have the wrong number.

But, Jahye...

Do you know a girl

named Jahye?

No, there's no one

named Jahye here.

Min-jin's Monster Mom

She's not here.

I said she's not here!


No, we haven't hung out

for over a year!

She's having fun

with her lover!


Never heard of her.



There's a problem.

Min-jin hasn't

come home yet.

Oh, my.

NOH Jae-soon's making

trouble on his site.

If we report her missing,

then she comes back, we'll have

stirred up rumors for nothing.

And it's not the first time

she's run off.

She's been fine for 3 months.

She's quite the flirt.

The boys must find her

mighty sexy.

Watch what you say

about that girl.

Did you hear something?

Well, my ears ain't

stuffed with cotton.
