Tousled Lawyer Jo Deul-ho in the neighborhood for round 2
Only in dramaland would we find a boxing, tattooed lawyer. KBS is gearing up for the premiere of the long-awaited second season of Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho, and we’ve gotten several more stills to keep the fans satisfied as we collectively count down the days to the first episode. I’m a fan of Park Shin-yang generally, so I’m really looking forward to having him back on my screen after his three-year absence from the scene.
Though I remember the first season of the show to have ended on a good note, it doesn’t look like our favorite neighborhood lawyer Jo Deul-ho has been cruising between then and when we start this second season. The stills show that he’s in serious need of a decent haircut and that he’s been living in relative squalor, with trash strewn about his apartment. Or maybe that’s just a common bachelor pad trait.
In this series, it looks like we’ll be exploring a bit of Jo Deul-ho’s lawyerly beginnings as a rookie prosecutor when he’s suddenly visited by the daughter of a former mentor, played by Lee Min-ji (100 Days My Prince). Her unexpected visit is prompted by some shocking news, though we don’t know what that is quite yet. I do wonder whether it has anything to do with our new villainess Go Hyun-jung (Return, Dear My Friends), whose upcoming battle of wits with Jo Deul-ho is something I’m really looking forward to.
Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho 2 will premiere on January 7 in KBS’s Monday-Tuesday slot following Dance Sports Girls.
