Money War is a 20-episode Korean drama series that aired on SBS in 2007. The show stars Park Shin-yang as President Kim Gyu-pyeong, who is the CEO of a large corporation called One Network. The series is an intense look at the competitive world of corporate finance, as President Kim tries to ensure the survival of his company by taking on his rival, Chairman Jin of the W Group.

The story begins when President Kim learns that the W Group is planning a hostile takeover of One Network. The W Group, run by the ruthless Chairman Jin, is the largest conglomerate in Korea, and President Kim knows that he must fight back if he wants to protect his company from being taken over. The series then follows President Kim and his team as they use every tactic at their disposal to prevent the takeover, ranging from buying up shares, to planting spies within the W Group.

Throughout the series, President Kim faces a number of obstacles, including a potential scandal involving a factory worker who was killed due to poor working conditions, and the discovery that his own right-hand man may be secretly working for the W Group. He also has to deal with his own complicated personal life, including a strained relationship with his wife and a growing attraction to his new assistant. As President Kim navigates the complex world of corporate finance, he begins to realize that the stakes are much higher than he ever could have imagined, with not just his company, but his entire life on the line.

One of the standout features of Money War is its intense focus on the intricate world of corporate finance. The series takes an in-depth look at the tactics used by large corporations to gain control and manipulate the market, including insider trading, share buybacks, and media manipulation. The show is a fascinating look at the cutthroat world of Korean business, with political power struggles and alliances forming between powerful figures as they try to gain the upper hand in the corporate war.

At the heart of the series is Park Shin-yang's powerful portrayal of President Kim. The actor brings a gravitas and intensity to the role, perfectly capturing the character's steely determination and unwavering commitment to his company. President Kim is not a hero in the traditional sense, and throughout the series he makes some questionable moral choices in his quest to gain the upper hand. However, his strong convictions and fierce loyalty to his company make him an engaging protagonist, and viewers will find themselves rooting for him even as he crosses ethical lines.

Alongside Park Shin-yang, the rest of the cast of Money War delivers strong performances throughout the series. Lee Wan, who plays President Kim's assistant, brings a charming energy to the role, while Han Ji-hye's portrayal of President Kim's wife, Lee Soo-jin, is nuanced and complex. The show also features a number of impressive supporting actors, including Ryu Seung-soo as President Kim's rival Choi Sung-joon, and Lee Won-jong as his loyal bodyguard, Kang Man-soo.

Overall, Money War is an intense and engrossing drama that offers a unique glimpse into the world of Korean finance. The series' focus on corporate tactics may not be for everyone, but viewers who enjoy political thrillers and stories of ambitious power struggles will find much to enjoy here. Park Shin-yang's powerful performance as President Kim, combined with a strong supporting cast and an excellent script, make Money War a must-watch for fans of Korean drama.
