Lee JoonGi is too handsome and I feel personally attacked 😂
Lawless Lawyer or Lawless Attorney is a TVN crime/prosecutor drama from last May-June. This drama has been on my radar for a while and I really want to watch a lot more of JoonGi’s work.
- Director: Kim Jin Min
- Screenwriter: Yoon Hyun Ho
Bong Sang Pil (Lee JoonGi) is a “gangster lawyer” who is well versed with the law and takes advantage of the loopholes. Meanwhile, we have Ha Yae Ji (Seo Ye Ji) who is a lawyer who has recently been suspended. She stands against the misogynistic aspects of the law and has a feisty attitude that gets her into trouble with superiors.
In the first episode we meet both our main leads and I love them both! Sang Pil is charming, funny and dangerous. These are all qualities that JoonGi acts well. And it wouldn’t be a kdrama without grief and prosecutors always seem to have the worst! Song Pil is using the law to gain vengeance for his mother’s murder which will be the overarching plot and I’m interested to see if we get other cases as well.
Yae Ji is wonderful! Every time she spoke out against that male judge I wanted to cheer for her! She talks back and fights for what she believes in and I’m excited to see what the partnership between Yae Ji and Sang Pil will be like.
Even in this first episode it’s clear that their chemistry is great and I love how they bicker. I hope these two will be very forward with each other!
The production value is great and what I expect with a TVN crime drama. I like the subtle changes in colourings etc. with the past scenes. And Lee Ro Woon, the child actor for Sang Pil is wonderful especially considering the upsetting content of his scenes in this episode.
And of course we have our villain – Ahn Oh Joo (Choi Min Soo) – who is definitely going to have a strong presence. I also feel like Yae Ji’s role model Judge Cha Moon Sook (Lee Hye Young). I love the feminist and moral work we saw her doing in this episode, but she’s too good and I’m always wary of those types in these dramas haha 😂
At this point Lawless Lawyer looks to be a fun, action-packed and emotional drama that I am all here for!
