“Queenmaker” tells the story of two women and their journey towards the title of “Mayor of Seoul.”

Hwang Do Hee is a brilliant and self-assured  woman who has never been defeated in her whole 12-year career. She is the leader of the strategic planning team of Eunsung Group and has developed a strong and powerful aura while serving the Eunsung Group and their owners.

Meanwhile, Oh Kyung Sook is a human rights lawyer who has been working for common people and especially for women rights for the past 20 years. She sometimes also goes against Eunsung Group. Her deeds earned her the title “Rhino of Justice.” Besides being an attorney, she is also a popular YouTuber. 

When Hwang Do Hee meets Kyung Sook, she joins the campaign to make her the next mayor of Seoul. Although they often bicker a lot due to their different opinions, their goal remains the same, which is to make Oh Kyung Sook the mayor of Seoul.
