jTBC Political Drama Aide Holds Script Reading with Leads Lee Jung Jae and Shin Mina

This has all the hallmarks of a good drama, being on cable with a serious political turn in this day and age where politics seem more than ever to play a role in daily lives. jTBC kicked off script reading for Aide starring Lee Jung Jae, Shin Mina, Kim Dong Joon, and Elliya Lee. Lee Jung Jae plays a top political aide with calculating smarts and strong personality to win, and his counterpart is Shin Mina’s lawyer turned elected rookie lawmaker in the assembly. They butt heads from opposite sides of the aisle and of course sparks may simmer and then fly. The drama is from the PD of Chuno, Miss Hammurabi, and The K2, with the script by the writer of Life on Mars and Let’s Fight, Ghost.

  1. Why do I feel Lee Jung Jae is more gorgeous now compared to his younger days?

    Anyway, the drama has stellar cast lineups esp the two main leads and hope will deliver really good story. Don’t waste that chance of (finally) successfully luring LJJ out of Chungmuro.

    • I can’t say I agree. Now that he’s getting older his facial features are getting more pronounced and now he looks like an ahjusshi to me. I prefer him when he looked fuller.

  2. What happened to Lee Soo Bin? I thought she was suppose to be in this or did Lee Eli Jah take her spot? Just asking.

      • ‘The Great Show’ on TVN with SSH and Im Joo Hwan. I so need to get my eyes checked and read articles correctly thank you @C for the clarification I mixed up the dramas and actors. Apparently they’re still in talks though nothing confirmed yet but Lee Sun Bin is lucky to get the opportunity to work with SSH and IJH.

  3. Life on Mars writer also wrote Lets Fight Ghost? I love both those dramas. They were absolute brilliance and both were adaptations. Now all we need is a crossover. Maybe Jung Kyung Ho, Kim So Hyun, Go Ah Ra and Taecyeon can all cameo in Aide. It’ll be party.
