First script read for slice-of-life legal drama Diary of a Prosecutor

Legal office drama Diary of a Prosecutor recently held its first script read. The cast, led by Lee Seon-kyun (My Ajusshi) and Jung Ryeo-won (Greasy Melo), looks like it had a great time judging by the smiles in these shots.

Unlike the slick and powerful prosecutors featured in Suits, Scandal, and other media representations, the prosecutors of Diary of a Prosecutor are ordinary people who work out of a provincial office and help with everyday crimes like pickpocketing, voice phishing, fights between neighbors, and etc.

It seems like the perfect drama for power duo creator Park Yeon-sun and director Lee Tae-gon to tackle, as they were great with the slice-of-life drama series, Age of Youth and its sequel. At the script read, Director Lee said that he felt strengthened because the project has gathered a solid script and trustworthy actors.

As for the characters, Lee Seon-kyun plays a prosecutor with a strong survival instinct. Although he looks carefree and unambitious on the surface, he can pack a punch when he wants to. Meanwhile, Jung Ryeo-won plays an elite prosecutor who has no flaws, but she is somehow sent to the provincial office.

In addition to Lee Seon-kyun and Jung Ryeo-won, the following actors were present at the script read: Lee Sung-jae (Abyss), Kim Kwang-gyu (The Secret Life of My Secretary), Lee Sang-hee (One Spring Night), Baek Hyun-joo (When the Camellia Blooms), Jeon Sung-woo (Designated Survivor: 60 Days), Ahn Chang-hwan (Fiery Priest), Jung Jae-sung (Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency), and Ahn Eun-jin (Strangers From Hell).

Lee Sung-jae plays the head prosecutor that leads a squad of police investigators. Kim Kwang-gyu, Lee Sang-hee, and Jeon Sung-woo all play prosecutors as well. Additionally, Baek Hyun-joo, Ahn Chang-hwan, and Ahn Eun-jin will play investigators who work side-by-side with the prosecutors.

JTBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Diary of a Prosecutor will begin on December 16.

Lee Seon Kyun is always in slice-of-life, or perhaps more accurately, always in realistic dramas, playing the everyday man. :) Not complaining though, because although his shows have not been big hits, you could pretty much count on him to pick good projects. Now, if only we get to see the swoony side of him again. He seems to be shying away from the romances, which is rather a shame in my opinion.

If I was his wife I'd put a limit to romance genres lol.
I have to give it to the women behind these actors. It must be hard to be married to someone who play romance on screen for a living.

Oh, sounds potentially good! My friend is a prosecutor and her work is in no way as glamorous as depicted in dramas. Maybe this is the slice of life crime drama I've been waiting for (no serial killers please).

Prosecutors have a tough job and work very hard- and it definitely is not a glamorous life.

"...he can pack a punch when he wants to" just reminds me so much of Park Dong Hoon. I've missed LSK so much and can't wait for this drama. Hope for a compelling but unusual story. I've read that they are filming the entire drama in a remote town at the very south of the Korean peninsula.

I've decided I need some audiobooks read by my favorite actors. Lee Seon Kyun would be on that list.

I don’t even need him to read something, he can just breathe and I’ll be listening to that 24/7.

I really like, love... I really love Lee Seon-kyun since My Ajusshi... But I wish I could watch a sequel from my Ajusshi instead of a whole new drama.
Nevertheless, I am in!

The 2nd lead of Coffee Prince - my first Kdrama - with the 2nd lead of My Name is Kim Sam Soon - also an early favorite - is giving me serious nostalgia vibes. Must watch!

I always considered the real second lead of MY NAME IS KIM SAM SOON to be Daniel Henney. I suppose it is a matter of perspective. Still this is something of a SAM SOON re-union: Jung Ryeo-won was the second female lead in that classic comedy.

Lee Seonkyun, Jung Ryeowon, and creators of Age of Youth... count me in!
I saw the poster yesterday and it looks good, different from usual court dramas but now I understand why. Will surely tune in!
