In a time where dramas mostly revolved around the Chosun Dynasty and the entertainment industry, there’s finally one that goes against the flow and will instead tells us the story of lawyers. This will be MBC’s follow-up drama to “Spotlight” and is called “The Lawyers of The Great Republic Korea”. It will star Han Eun Jung, Ryu Soo Young, Lee Soo Kyung and Lee Sung Jae.
The drama will be led by Han Eun Jung and Ryu Soo Young and if you looked to the past, this will be their 3rd collaboration. In “Story of a Bright Successful Girl” in 2002, they were both second leads while they played lovers in “Seoul 1945” in 2006. With this being their 3rd time, the both of them must have really some chemistry and fate to be put together again.
In the drama, Han Eun Jung and Lee Sung Jae plays a couple who are in the process of getting their divorce. Byun Hyuk (Ryu Soo Young) is the lawyer that represents Han Eun Jung’s character in her divorce suit against her husband. Woo Lee Kyung (Lee Soo Kyung) is the new lawyer who represents Lee Sung Jae’s character. Though they don’t get along with each other in the beginning, because they represent other clients, they slowly fall for each other.
“The Lawyers of The Great Republic Korea” will be aired on 7th July.
