A cynical, arrogant politician takes a young woman from a small town and turns her into a political powerhouse, and ends up falling in love along the way. Shin Mi Rae is a junior secretary in the mayoral office in Inju City. After years of making coffee and running errands, she has no plans beyond remaining neutral and keeping her job. Enter Jo Gook, a high-profile, rising political star mysteriously sent to take over as deputy mayor. Jo Gook has his eye on a run for the presidency of South Korea and he's not exactly thrilled about being banished to a small town, but he quickly adapts, and sees Mi Rae as a potential asset. When Mi Rae wins a beauty pageant and demands the prize money her corrupt boss has stolen, she is promptly fired and Jo Gook sees his opportunity. Taking her under his wing, he propels her into the political arena and introduces her as the newest—not to mention youngest and most female—candidate for the mayoral office. Up against her ex-boss and other corrupt government officials, will she still have what it takes to rise to the top and win a few hearts on the way?
