As the highest public servant, how much should a president sacrifice of his or her personal happiness for the people they serve? Kim Jung Ho (Lee Soon Jae) is near the end of his term as a respected president who has ushered in democracy to the country and served the working class throughout his political career. When he unexpectedly wins the lottery just months before his retirement, he faces a tough decision: keep the money to fund a comfortable retirement or donate the money to charity as he promised to do early in his career. Jung Ho’s successor as president is Cha Ji Wook (Jang Dong Gun), a charismatic leader who is the youngest president in history. Although he is deathly afraid of needles, Ji Wook is put in a difficult position of being asked to donate one of his rare tissue-type kidneys to save a man’s life. Ji Wook wrestles with whether he can undergo a terrifying medical procedure for the sake of a constituent. Ji Wook’s successor is Han Gyeong Ja (Go Doo Shim), the nation’s first woman president. Gyeong Ja finds her responsibilities as president much easier to handle than her trouble-making husband. When her husband gets embroiled in a corruption scandal, Gyeong Ja must decide whether to divorce in order to save her presidency. How will the presidents handle their own personal dilemmas? “Good Morning Mr. President” is a 2009 South Korean film written and directed by Jang Jin. It was the opening film of the 14th Busan International Film Festival.
