Artificial City (2021)


Takes place against the backdrop of an art museum that belongs to Sung Jin Group, a major conglomerate that holds the reins of the political and financial worlds in South Korea. It is a psychological mystery thriller about the things that disappear when humans become greedy and ambitious for power.

Yoon Jae Hee is the head of the Sung Jin Cultural Foundation and in charge of operations at “Space Jin,” the art museum owned by Sung Jin Group. She is also the second daughter-in-law of the family that controls Sung Jin Group. Believing that poverty is corrosive to love and that a stable income leads to a steady life, she chose to throw away her long-time lover and entered into a marriage of convenience with Jung Joon Hyuk, an illegitimate son of Sung Jin Group. In order to make her husband the nation’s president, she teams up with the future Public Prosecutor General and goes to war against Sung Jin Group.

Jung Joon Hyuk is Yoon Jae Hee’s husband. Although he is a popular anchorman with his own fan club, he hides an inferiority complex over being labeled “the illegitimate son of Sung Jin Group” for his whole life. He laughs at both ambitious people and those who pretend to have no ambition even as he waits for the day when he can seize the reins of power.

    1. Its nice to see endings that are unexpected like this since everyone always assume the lead would win. But if ur issue with this show, despite how well produced/well-written/good actors, is that the good lead doesnt get a happy ending, then ur a child and should stick to watching cartoons

  1. I hate it deeply it was a rude way to end things like this.. she was loyal she loved his son she protected him she loved him but in return what he did ? In the end she suffered alone and evil win the game
    What’s wrong with the writer ? he must take a mental check ✔ ??

    1. It’s about family drama, money ,fame , power, infedility and many twists here and there it’s centred around a female character.

  2. Yes should have sub fast as the series is interesting and not boring like Red sleeve or second husband etc its mind provoking and a bit different as long theres no bad scenes should keep to family taste and good morals…

    1. What do you mean ? Red cliff might be a sad story but definitely the best romance this year no boring love triangle or chessy romance the love was filled with longing and realistic romance on like many korean fictious love stories.

  3. This is Crazy why do eng subs for this series always come a week later? Is it not a popular drama? It doesn’t make sense.

    1. Usual chaebol stuff with gloomier than usual cinematography. Hot fierce women and pathetic crapulous men. Not much humour. 6/10 so far but that’s on my K scale, you wont be disappointed if you like this kind of stuff.

  4. Why this website become slower on updating subs ? not only this drama, drama show window also, waiting for days still no subs
