Brianna slowly walked down the hallway and to her office door. It felt strange to her to be back. It seemed like she had been away from work for a month. She unlocked her door, walked inside and shut the door, letting out a deep sigh.

Seoul 1945 opening

There are some dramas where you by just watching the opening get the feeling that this will be a good drama. Seoul 1945 is one of them. Let the marathon begin.

Synopsis
Seoul 1945 is a drama that takes place during turbulent times in Korea, spanning from the end of the Japanese occupation to the eventual split of the country into North and South.

The story revolves around the lives of four young adults who grew up together. Choi Woon Hyuk is a child prodigy born into a family of poor miners, Kim Hae Kyung is the eldest daughter of tenant farmers, Lee Dong Woo is the heir to a wealthy, well-connected family; and Moon Suk Kyung is the only child of an affluent and powerful political ally of Japan.

In a blend of personal choices and circumstances beyond their control, each individual embarks on different paths that reflect the chaotic nature of the time as well as their true character. As their paths collide, love, friendship, loyalty, vengeance, moral conscience, and ideology become driving forces to irrevocably change the course of their lives.

Apparently there was some controversy over it.

At a press conference held in June 2006, 254 right-wing conservative groups accused the state-run KBS network of distorting history. They complained that Seoul 1945 had a left-wing bias, with its portrayal of Syngman Rhee as “a Japanese collaborator whose lust for power leads him to abandon a unified Korea, while characters of the Left are usually portrayed as considerate and concerned for the future of the nation,” and that the drama accuses Rhee and others of involvement in the assassination of the center-left leader Lyuh Woon-hyung. They asked for a halt to the broadcast and threatened a campaign to boycott the television subscription fee.[2]

In July 2006, Rhee In-soo, adopted son of South Korea’s first president Syngman Rhee, and Jang Byung-hye, daughter of former prime minister Jang Taek-sang, filed a lawsuit against the producers of Seoul 1945, claiming that the drama distorts history and belittles the achievements of their late fathers.
