Shin Mi-rae (Kim Sun-A) is a low-ranking official who’s been making coffee for her superiors for the last seven years. Her life takes a turn when she wins a local beauty pageant and later becomes the mayor. Coincidentally her name literally means “the new future” (shin = new & mi-ra = future). Along the way, she catches the eye and captures the heart of the charismatic politician Jo Kuk (Cha Seung-Won), a man with a mysterious and painful past and ambitions to one day be South Korea’s president.
