Review: Prime Minister & I (총리와 나)

Don’t you have those dramas that got you excited every week but left you wide mouthed with disbelief at the end. 2013 had two such dramas one was Mirae’s Choice/Marry him if u dare and the other was Prime Minister & I

Nam Da Jeong played by Yoona is a reporter of a no-name newspaper. Kwon Yul played by Lee Bum Soo is the Prime Minister of South Korea. Due to some clichéd situations they both enter a contract wedding. Kwon Yul‘s wife died few years back in a road accident. Uri, Nara and Manse are his three children. How Yoona does her role as the Prime Minister’s Wife and how the children accept her and how eventually the contract marriage turns to real love is what this drama tells.

The Plus Factor:

My Rating

It would have easily got an 8 or 9 if not for the end. Thanks to that unbelievable end giving it a


PM & I 3
