Revenge turns to romance for Divorce Lawyers in Love

How cute does this drama look? Divorce Lawyer in Love is all set to premiere in another week, and the hate-turning-to-love dynamic seems perfectly suited to Yeon Woo-jin (Marriage Not Dating) and Jo Yeo-jung (Haeundae Lovers).

In the drama, the two leads first meet while she’s a top lawyer and he a lowly office manager. She’s got a terrible temper and treats him like crap (in the first teaser, she hurls snappish insults his way like “Can’t you do a proper job?!”), assailing him with constant stress and frustration.

Jo Yeo-jung’s character’s name is Cheok-hee, which gets crossed out and rewritten as Chucky — that explains the odd presence of those creepy Chucky dolls in the promo stills. (I’m going to assume Yeon Woo-jin uses a Chucky doll as a stress-reliever, as an effigy for the hated boss from hell. That’s just a guess, but really, what else could it mean?)

The second teaser describes Cheok-hee’s attitude toward divorce, said airily: “If you can stop seeing someone you hate to death, isn’t that a blessing?” On the other hand, Yeon Woo-jin’s character takes a less breezy approach, arguing strenuously that divorce requires both people to be onboard.

In any case, the comeuppance against his terrible ex-boss is therefore sweet when he then goes on to become a lawyer and she, having lost her license, becomes his office manager. Muahaha. Not that she doesn’t have her own ways of getting under his skin, as we see in the third teaser as she merrily calls out to him across the street, using the lawyer nickname So Byun. (So is his last name, byun refers to lawyer, and sobyun means pee. Hee.)

Then there are second leads Shim Hyung-tak (so, so hilarious, as we’ve seen in Persevere, Gu Hae-ra and Let’s Eat) and Wang Ji-won (Fated To Love You). Divorce Lawyer in Love premieres on Saturday, April 18, on SBS.

I've been looking forward to this! I like the cast and the story is fun. It reminds me a little bit of The Proposal. :)

Are those Chucky dolls going to be a recurring motif in the drama because if so, I'd be too freaked out to watch?

Cheok-hee. OHHHHHHH that explains it. I confess to being concerned at the level of kink with a Chucky doll and "Bang Bang" playing in the teasers. That'd be a bit much even for Tvn. A rating change would've been in order.

I'm very interested, if only Jo Yeo Jung loses that terrible brown fringe. She looks like Tuk from Robin Hood..... Soooo creepy!

Been waiting for this drama all because I love Yeon Woo-jin. I really think he's best when it comes to rom-com. Also, I can't help but notice how pretty Wang Ji-won is! I hope this drama fares well.

So glad to see Yeon Woo-jin in another leading role. :) The movie Chucky and I have some bad memories together. Hope he doesn't stick around.

I think the drama looks good. I love 75% of the cast. Wang Jiwon always seems "meh" to me with her acting. Here's to hoping she does better with this character.

Chucky: *chills*. Talk about childhood trauma.

But happy happy me to see the Let's Eat S1 on the small screen again (albeit in different dramas, huhu~~) and Yeon Woo-jin's looking very attractive again here! Will check this one out!

Is it just me, or does Yeon Woo-jin looks younger in this drama than he did in Marriage Not Dating? Probs the hair

Why Chucky? Why?! There sr so many other words to play on but they choose chucky?! Do they know how nightmare inducing that damned thing is? Well, now, I guess they don't know.

Ugh... Chucky. I've always tried to avoid/skim over his pictures. Didn't think they'd use it in the posters, but I was curious. >_<

Jo Yeo-jung's brown bangs are too short. :( She looks way prettier in her first promo still.

I think I'll be tuning in to this... if only for Yeon Woo-jin and Shim Hyung-tak.

The leads appear to have no chemistry together and don't look good together either...I'll give this one a try but I don't think I'll be shipping the main couple..

Pause. Rewind. I didn't know Wang Ji-won was in this. I wasn't going to watch this cause I don't like Jo Yeo-jung but I just might catch it for Ji-won. I just hope the writer doesn't make her bitchy and annoying again like she was in Fated to Love You. I'm still waiting on that reunion with Choi Jin-hyuk when he gets out of the army.
