Hired to protect the presidential hopeful (Jo Sung Ha) and his ambitious wife (Song Yoon Ah), his life becomes complicated when he discovers too much information about their private lives, including the fact that the presidential candidate has been hiding his illegitimate shut-in daughter (Yoona). Can he navigate the treacherous political intrigue while protecting those who matter the most to him? Find out by tuning in The K2 now, only on DramaFever!
Ji Chang Wook (Healer, Warrior Baek Dong Soo) and Song Yoon Ah (Assembly) star in a political drama that shows you really shouldn’t mess with somebody’s present when they can royally wreck your future. Kim Je Ha (Ji Chang Wook) is a former secret service agent, unquestionably patriotic yet abandoned by his colleagues. An elite soldier, Kim Je Ha is also tremendously athletic, armed with martial arts skills and ice-cool nerves known to few. He gets hired as a bodyguard by Choi Yoo Jin (Song Yoon Ah), the premier First Lady candidate and the daughter of a chaebol family. Behind Choi Yoo Jin’s kind and friendly demeanor, though, lies a woman with deep ambition and a ruthless willingness to pursue it at all costs. Amidst his struggles and her ambitions, there is also Go An Na (The Prime Minister and I star and SNSD member Im Yoon Ah), the reclusive and hidden daughter of the presidential hopeful who, due to a childhood trauma, is unable to communicate with the world and only sees love as a tool for revenge. So when she and Kim Je Ha, both abandoned souls slowly growing closer, decide to enact vengeance upon the people who wronged them, can they put their own traumas aside and focus, or will their emotional scars cause them to fail in their quest for retribution? Adding to the drama are Jang Se Joon (Neighborhood Hero alum Jo Sung Ha), the presidential candidate, Park Gwan Soo (Mirror of the Witch actor Kim Gab Soo), his morally questionable rival, and Kim Dong Mi (She Was Pretty star Shin Dong Mi), the steely and cold right-hand woman and chief secretary of the First Lady hopeful.
The K2 is the latest project by director Kwak Jung Hwan (Basketball, Chuno), who once again returns to the familiar subject matter of secret agents that he explored in Neighborhood Hero. It is written by Jang Hyeok Rin, who fans will recognize for the screenplay of Yong Pal.
