Pride and Prejudice’s bickering prosecutor couple

Okay, I’m actually a little shocked, but the teaser for MBC’s new Monday-Tuesday legal drama Pride and Prejudice is kind of adorable. I was expecting something dark and heavy from a show that used to once be called Lawless World, because it looks more like a romantic comedy that happens to be set in a prosecutor’s office — leads Choi Jin-hyuk (Fated To Love You) and Baek Jin-hee (Triangle) are cute and contentious, and the tone is surprisingly breezy.

The new legal drama from the PD of Time Between Dog and Wolf and the writer of School 2013 stars Choi Jin-hyuk as an ace prosecutor and Baek Jin-hee as a dogged junior prosecutor on his team. He’s smart and cool-headed, and she’s driven by the need to mete out justice to those who have committed crimes. They’re part of a team of “loser prosecutors” along with Choi Min-soo (Sword and Flower) and Lee Tae-hwan (High School King of Savvy), and together they face off against big crime. Sohn Chang-min (Feel-Good Day) co-stars as an unemployed gambler with a loose tongue (and a crazy new hairdo).

The teaser presents an interesting dynamic between Baek Jin-hee and Choi Jin-hyuk in two timelines: In the past, they meet-cute when she asks for 5,700 won for cab fare, and then he asks her out in a strange way, by asking to meet once a month for ten months. Then in the present, she’s chopped off all her hair and become a prosecutor, and they curiously speak to each other in banmal. He teases, “You became a prosecutor because of me, didn’t you?” She smiles: “Yes. To get revenge.”

But apparently he’s the one with the petty chip on his shoulder (maybe she dumped him?) because he runs her around and keeps reminding her that he’s the boss and she’s the rookie. She tells him to stop, but he teases again, “Stop what? I’m just getting started!” Their dynamic is really appealing, mostly because she seems like a smart, sassy heroine with quick retorts. I don’t know, I just might have to watch this drama…

Pride and Prejudice follows Records of a Night Watchman and premieres October 27.

Wow, third drama for CHoi Jin Hyuk this year, he is certainly on a roll after Heirs. Just as well, he's ok but I really just love seeing him in suits, even in orange, coz he looks really good in suits, not a skinny ass this one. Maybe the third time's the charm, he will definitely get the girl. not counting emergency couple,of couse, where he played the main lead. In heirs, he didn't get the girl he truly loves, ditto with Fated to Love you so third time's the charm.
you are awesome, Choi Jin Hyuk, fighting,Oppa!

I like Baek Jin Hee so I might give this a try! Still don't understand why they chose Pride and Prejudice as their English title cos it WILL confuse fans of the book.

Oh, well if it's a rom-com then I don't miss the Lawless World title as much anymore, even if I still don't quite want the Pride and Prejudice one. If it's a rom-com though, at least the name fits much better. And now I'm very much looking forward to this :)

I completely understand why they chose this title: The characters personalities of the IT novel transplanted in a legal drama. I say it's a match made in heaven & a smart move for the promotion.
I like all the cast but find this 1st teaser a bit bland... That can be deceptive so I'll judge the show when it starts.

I can't help it, Choi Jin Hyuk just does something to me, even though I'm not sure he's that great of an actor. I'm going to give this drama a try just for him, and hope it doesn't disappoint me like his last drama did.

Lol, and OF COURSE she has to have an ugly hair cut in the present to show that she wants to be taken seriously. Whatever you say, K dramas.

well, at least it has that tiny flip-out at the ends so it's not quite the dreaded bowl cut..

I never understood the devotion to the bowl cut. It's actually pretty high-maintenance to keep cutting, and if kdrama hairstylists want to suggest a girl who has no time to maintain her hair, it's better to just put it in a ponytail, even a tiny stub ponytail >>>>>>>> the bowl cut.

I just hope the drama will be more onto the School 2013's vibe. Give me all the hearts and I'll take 'em.

I kind of like the simplicity of the trailers...they're not overly stylized or characterized but just kind of there.. I don't know.

Jin Hyuk is seriously so delicious looking and a WHOLE show of him in suits..yum!! But I really hope he brings something new to the table, lately I've been feeling his acting/roles all one-dimensional.

Love Baek Jin Hi. Love Choi Jin Hyuk's voice. Though i'm skeptical about 'prosecutors' drama (looking at you, New Leaf) i think i will check this out just for the OTP.

Rom com set in prosecutor world. Though I actually expect something similar to A New Leaf, plus romance, plus enough ending resolution, I'd welcome it because they look good and adorable together.
2014 really a good year for Baek Jin Hee and Choi Jin Hyuk right? 3 dramas in a row! Almost without break. While on the other hand, there are actors only play dramas once in a while, or worse, only play movies.

"more like a romantic comedy that happens to be set in a prosecutor’s office"...Which pretty much means I can skip it. Interesting careers that serve as a backdrop for run-of-the-mill romance frustrate me. (NO ONE EVER WORKS!) Though I'm interested enough in the side characters/actors that I might check it out later. I'll probably press fast-forward a lot though. I actually liked New Leaf, it wasn't everything it could have been but it could have been worse. I doubt this will incorporate as much actual(ish?) law, which won't necessarily be bad. The title change finally makes sense.

A legal drama - when I see "Pride and Prejudice" I think, "Crime and Punishment."

Baek Jin-hee should change her hairstyle or clothes to make her look older, she always looks like a 12 year old in all her dramas, which looks creepy when compared to the opposite lead...

Well honestly, I don't see how you could call it "Pride and Prejudice" and have it NOT be a rom-com. I mean, most rom-coms borrow heavily from the structure of that book anyway, but a twisty, dark P&P would always be missing something.

The teaser is simple but it's peaked my interest. I'll give this a shot. I want to check out Baek Jin Hee outside of Empress Qi. She annoyed me so much in Empress Qi so it probably means she acted her character out pretty well to do that. :))

Well, as another commenter said, these basically are the P&P characters just set in the legal world and seeing as P&P is my favorite book...yep, I'll definitely be watching it and it helps that I find CJH absolutely handsome. But still, I'm hoping some exec decides to produce a P&P Korean drama. Why no one has thought about it baffles me.
