Lee Jung Jae, of many older popular dramas like Feelings and Sandglass, and movies like Il Mare, The Thieves, The Housemaid, is making a drama comeback after 10 years with new JTBC drama Aide. He was last seen in 2009’s Triple and has been working mostly in films since late 90s, with only 2 dramas in late 2000s. He is joined by charming Shin Min Ah who last gave us time travelling Tomorrow With You in 2017.
Aide is a about politics, and stars Lee Jung Jae as the chief aide to congressman, played by Kim Gab Soo (Mr. Sunshine), and Shin Min Ah plays a first time congresswoman of the opposite party. The cast also includes Kim Dong Joon (About Time) as an enthusiastic intern while Lee Elijah (The Last Empress) takes on the role of the secretary to Kim Gab Soo’s character. Jung Woong In (I Hear Your Voice) is also among the strong cast of the show.
