First teaser and meet-cute for Prime Minister and I

By in News posted Oct November 15th, 2013 No comments

Here’s our first peek at KBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday show Prime Minister and I, the rom-com starring Lee Beom-soo (IRIS 2) as the prime minister and single dad, and idol-actress Yoon-ah (Love Rain) as the nanny who helps save his family and wins his heart in the process. The leads shot their first meeting (pictured below), and I don’t know what kind of meet-cute ends with the heroine hanging onto a man’s legs looking like a sad kitty, but let’s just hope there’s a comical explanation.

Lee Beom-soo stars as the nation’s youngest prime minister, a whip-smart politician who never misses a beat. He’s also a widower with three children, and it’s as a father where he falls short. When he first meets Yoon-ah’s character she’s a reporter and her character will be his opposite in every way—bumbling, unpolished, hapless with everything
