Here are 3 points not to be missed to enjoy the drama [Scandal : a Shocking and Wrongful Incident] written by Bae Yoo-mi, directed by Kim Jin-man and Park Jae-beom.

[1] Mixture of family and social drama
MBC’s new drama [Scandal : a Shocking and Wrongful Incident] opens in Seoul in 1988. The year 1988 was a significant year to the Koreans because of ‘Seoul Olympics 1988’. The drama tells about hidden people who were victimized by the wrongful social incidents while the whole city was in festival with Olympics. Following is what the director Kim Jin-man said during the press conference on June 26th. “We all saw how the big department store Sam-poong collapsed on June 29th, 1995. This drama took the motive from that incident. I will be telling a story of a family whose tragedy begins with a building collapse but I will try not to be too disturbing to the viewers. I want to show and tell the hurtful truth and tragedy hidden behind our society. Also, a genuine love of father and mother, the social messages.... I hope [Scandal...] could be a memorable drama to the drama viewers.”

[2] Amazing actor, Jo Jae-hyun expresses wailful affection of a father

He finds out who caused the accident and in order to revenge, he kidnaps the son of this man. While raising this boy for more than 20 years, he feels he is building an affection for the boy. During the interview in the press conference, actor Jo Jae-hyun said, “I was in my 30’s when I was acting in the drama [Piano] and I was then too young to know the real feeling of a father’s affection.
