Storyline

City Hall is a drama that will deal with politics in a romantic comedy genre. It's about the happenings between a young woman mayor and an elite bureaucrat. Jo Gook is an exceedingly smart government official. He passed the Higher Civil Service quickly, and basically is the perfect guy. But being a deputy mayor is not enough for him. He lives with the dream of becoming South Korea's President. He should have easily gone straight to the top, but due to an unexpected incident, he gets dispatched as a deputy mayor for a provincial small town, Inju City, where Shin Mi Rae was working. Shin Mi Rae is a low-ranking secretary in Inju, but she works her way up in becoming the youngest City Mayor. As their paths met, they have to deal with each other's personal and social differences. But despite their constant bickering, would they end up in each other's arms? Written by KoreanDrama

Definitely A VERY GOOD DRAMA
4 April 2011 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

The story is about 2 people from different background but have same wish to serve the country well. Kim Sun Ah acted as "Shi Min Rae" a lousy government worker whom had strong will to do what she want to do till the end, while Cha Seung Won acted as "Jo Gook" an elite government who was intelligent and cool. They both met when Jo Gook was ordered by his powerful dad who was not acknowledging him as a son but merely a student to a small town to keep an eye on the government office there, whereas Shi Min Rae worked as the secretary of that government office hence they both often meet. Jo Gook admired Min Rae's strong personality and proposed her to be a mayor of that town which she at first hesitantly agreed, with the help of her friends and good personalities with Jo Gook always teaching her she managed to become a mayor and the love affair between those 2 started. Jo Gook had a fiancé from powerful rich family who he didn't care and love but he always care and loving toward Min Rae who is straight-forward and honest.

It's a happy ending drama. As you know the rating is the highest when it was broadcasting on TV among its competitors.

Highly appraised of the acting both of the main actors (Cha Seung Won and Kim Sun Ah). Sun Ah is the best Korean actress who can bring such a wonderful moment to any drama that she act (my name is Kim Sam Soon, when it's at night, city hall), while Seung Won is masculine and gave great afford for his rule to sad, happy, and strong. The wonderful script and plot are the main points of a great drama and I found it in this drama, the powerful love story between these two is mature and not all about yelling and childish like what Korean drama usually about. The soundtracks are also nice to listen to.

GREAT DRAMA!
