Netflix unveils thrilling new trailer for political K-drama ‘Queenmaker’

Netflix has released the first official trailer for its upcoming political K-drama series Queenmaker.

The new teaser opens with a voiceover form Hwang Do-hee (played by The World of the Married‘s Kim Hee-ae), the former head of major conglomerate Eunsung Group’s strategy planning office, as she speaks about the upcoming election for Mayor of Seoul: “I guess you’re going for an entertaining political show. I can make it more interesting for you.”

In the next scene, Hwang is trying to convince brave but unassuming human rights lawyer Oh Seung-sook (Life‘s Moon So-ri) to run for the position, but soon flashes back to a conversation she had with her old boss, Son Young-sim (Rookie Cops‘ Seo Yi-sook).


Son tells Hwang to make sure someone called Baek Jae-min (Ryu Soo-young) becomes mayor. However, when Hwang refuses, Son aims a shotgun at her before the trailer cuts to the next scene.

Later in the trailer, Hwang warns Oh about her opponents, the aforementioned Baek and  Seo Min-jeong (Love In Contract‘s Jin Kyung). “They’re class-A clowns who know how to use the camera and the lights to appeal,” she says, before teaching Oh the same tricks of the trade.
