Listening to the judge’s side of the story in Nothing to Lose

I love these two already. We’ve got character teasers out for each of our leads in upcoming courtroom drama Nothing to Lose, and I can tell Park Eun-bin (Age of Youth 2) and Yeon Woo-jin (Seven Day Queen) are going to make the oddest, most adorable couple of judges. I was a little worried that Nothing to Lose was going to go with a heavier tone, like the vast majority of legal dramas tend to do, but the teasers seem to suggest a lighter vibe, and I’m looking forward to watching the two leads bicker their way into an opposites-attract romance.

The two teasers take on slightly different formats, and Park Eun-bin’s has her addressing the audience directly. She will be playing Lee Jung-joo, a 28-year-old judge in the Seoul District Court with an anger management problem, which you can see as she launches into a tirade about how all the legal dramas and films these days are only about prosecutors and defense lawyers, citing works like A Violent Prosecutor and The Attorney. I love how she goes from smiling to a full-on rant in the space of one hair-flip, saying, “Now we even have neighborhood lawyers on TV!”

Her arguments hilariously devolve into pettiness, grumbling about how prosecutors are always shown to be good at fighting (“I’m pretty good at fighting, too!”), culminating with, “And I did better in school than all of them!” She gathers herself, though, and relays to the audience with a smile that all cases end with a judge. The camera pans out to reveal a kid sitting next to her on the bench, and Park Eun-bin turns to ask what his dream is. Cue awkward pause as the kid says, “A prosecutor.” Lol. To add insult to injury, she begins to ask whether he’s never considered becoming a judge, and he responds with a negative even before she’s finished her question.

In contrast, we see Yeon Woo-jin’s excessively rational character, Sa Eui-hyun, quarreling with Haeryung (Star of the Universe). If this teaser is anything to go by, the 32-year-old elite judge is an infuriatingly logical person, spelling out in bullet points exactly why Haeryung is mad at him, when she asks in a rhetorical way. He goes into minute detail as he lays out that she got arrested for getting into a physical altercation, he hasn’t asked how she was, and that his actions make her think he doesn’t care. She incredulously asks why he’s acting this way if he knows, to which he says that he has to listen to both sides of the story, as appropriate of a judge. When Haeryung scoffs at his occupation, he says, “We have to listen to the judge’s side of the story, too.”

I find it funny how Nothing to Lose will follow the very type of legal drama Park Eun-bin was railing about. The judge-centered show will take over While You Were Sleeping on Wednesdays and Thursdays, starting on November 22.

LOL. Lawyers and prosecutors are afraid of judges too especially because some judges are known for their sharp mouth, and it will be more embarrassing if it happens in open court trial. 😆

Judges gonna be thr next trend for legal drama, next year there will another legal-judge drama with Go Ara and L. Maybe the next time it will be court interpreter, bailiff and other officers of the court 😂

A female stenographer who has trouble keeping up with fast-talking witnesses and a male stenographer is a geeeeeeenius polyglot who specializes in English, Japanese AND the Jeju dialect. SBS's next Wednesday-Thursday drama: The Write Kind of Love.

Park Eun Bin and Yeon Woo Jin are so underrated.
Finally a drama when both leads have the same acting level, after seeing some weird drama pairings the last weeks.
Really Good Actors, Fighting.

Why does the sight of Yeon Woo-Jin rubbing lip balm with his pinky makes me so giddy?

Because I love him. That’s why.

I love Song Ji-won, but I don't want to see her in other drama tho... Hopefully Park Eun-bin will bring something new to her character in this drama cause from that lil teaser I still can see Song Ji-won.

I feel bad for this drama because its gonna be at the bottom of the ratings battle. YWJ already has 3 failed dramas this will be his fourth. His status as leading man is already in jeopardy.

How can you say that for sure? Yes YWJ is not an actor who can get high ratings by his name alone but at the end what really matters is the right timing and good writing. SDQ had bad timing and IB had bad writing. One factor that is icky with this show is that it is following a legal drama with a legal drama. But I hope for the sake of these two actors that it does well.

This looks fun! I hope it's as cute or as light as the teaser suggested (we all know we can only believe a teaser to a certain extent. Or actually we shouldn't, to avoid future disappointments lol)
