The upcoming Korean drama adaptation of the Japanese hit "Legal High" has confirmed Jin Goo and Seo Eun-soo as its leads, and has since then added Yoon Park, Chae Jung-an and Jung Sang-hoon to the mix. With these news names and their character info on board, the main cast is taking form.
Jin Goo has confirmed Go Tae-rim, the caustic, arrogant lawyer who nonetheless has a 100% win rate on his cases. On the flipside, Seo Eun-soo's Seo Jae-in is a flawed rookie, but she is a righteous lawyer. I'm still not feeling this pair for their roles, separately and together, in all honesty, but I'll keep my hopes up for now.
Yoon Park takes on Kang Ki-seok, B&G law firm's ace lawyer, and Tae-rim's rival. Although he trained under Tae-rim, his smooth charisma will make for a thrilling contrast when the two fight in court. Chae Jung-an is Min Joo-kyeong, a partner lawyer at B&G known as a great source of intel. Her refined beauty hides beastly skills in forward planning and crisis management. Jung Sang-hoon plays Yoon Sang-goo, a man who dreams of beating Tae-rim and making a comeback. While rough on the surface, Sang-goo turns into a pitiful middle-aged man during alcohol-induced blackouts.
I'm liking the supporting cast more than the main leads at the moment, but this sounds like a mix of very diverse characters, which is already a welcome element. Let's see what Dramaland makes of this remake. "Legal High" will follow "SKY Castle" on jTBC in February.
