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.

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
