The Great Show Episodes 1 to 4 Discussion Post

PLOT: Assemblyman Wi Dae Han was a competent assemblyman who only had a bright future ahead. However, he didn’t win the general election due to a scandal. As the saying goes, he becomes a person less than human for losing. He starts from the bottom again and prepares to become the assemblyman again. But unexpected guests appear at his place. A highschool girl with her siblings come from nowhere, and she insists that he is her birth father. Dae Han has no affection to the children, but he accepts the siblings as his family. His goal is to put up a show and set up a new image. But unexpectedly, he finds out that raising children was much tougher than being an assemblyman. In their relationship, Dae Han becomes a real father.

You can watch on VIU | Dramanice

If you enjoyed watching "My Fellow Citizens" then you will most likely enjoy watching this too. As I watch more episodes, I see that this is not just politics and comedy but also has a touch of family drama. And if you're a VIXX fan, Hyuk plays a minor role on this drama.

I enjoyed the first four episodes! For now Sun Bin has good chemistry with both leads, her acting presence make her appear older than she is ('94-line) so it isn't so awkward.

First and second lead are both really smooth talkers, that little verbal duel they had makes me really look forward to their debates actually.

Also, I loved the scene with the house rules, it nicely showed him in his element.

Adding this to my list, and will watch depending on how much screentime kids get. I want to see family, but not watch children very much, which is a hard balance.

Da Jeong (a teenager) is one of the leads and she's involved in a lot of scenes (more than the other 3 kids) specially since the first few episodes is realy centered around Dae Han stepping into his father role. It will most likely be like 30% with the kids in each episode. It's really interesting and entertaining to watch.

I didn't comment clearly, I'm sorry. I'm ok with teenagers, especially sassy ones. It's kids under 10 I'm bored by.

But 30% max, largely teenager, is a great ratio. Thanks friend!

Also, i hope his stance on adoption was just a party line or he's pulling the wool over their/our eyes...bc i don't know if i can root for a male lead who is anti-abortion

I was divided with my feelings as well about his stand on abortion coz it wasn't clear if it was just for show to win the votes or not. Then when Dae Han found out that Da Jeong is pregnant, I'm not able to read his feelings again. So I'm Da Jeong and Soo Hyun right now. Really confused about Dae Han. I guess Song Seung Heon must really be doing a good job acting out his role coz I'm not able to read his character right now =)
