Should of made the whole film revolve around Jang Dong-gun's character as president
11 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Good Morning President" basically shows the Korean presidency from three points of view. One is about some old guy who is the president of Korea winning the lottery, but having to decide if he should give it up because of a speech of giving money to the needy he made a while back. The other is about a younger president played by Jang Dong-gun dealing with the problem of japan trying to take Dokdo by using the US as a tool. The last one is about a female president having to deal with her trouble making husband, who isn't such a bad guy. The only plot that stood out to me the one with Jang Dong-gun playing the main role as president, I personally think they should have made just one president played by Jang Dong-gun to play the main role throughout the whole film. While adding some more elements of romance between Jang and Han Chae-Young in it, cause Jang Dong-gun's part of the movie was the only entertaining and engaging part of the whole film, all in all it's pretty much a feel good movie.

6.8/10
