Different approaches to justice in Diary of a Prosecutor

If these teasers are a good indication of how this drama is going to be, I’m definitely tuning in. Slice-of-life legal drama Diary of a Prosecutor doesn’t feature any great corruption or a thrilling revenge story. It’s about the low-key lives of ordinary prosecutors from the peaceful Jinyoung provincial office, who have to deal with unending amounts of work and who work hard to resolve even the most trivial of civil disputes.

Lee Seon-kyun (My Ajusshi) plays a prosecutor with strong survival skills, and Jung Ryeo-won (Greasy Melo) plays a three-times ace prosecutor. In the newly released teasers, we see their different approaches to solving the adorable case of fighting sisters.

As he’s busily organizing papers, two cutie patooties walk into Lee Seon-kyun’s office. Welcomingly, he asks whether they’re here for the Career Day experience. The younger girl shouts angrily in adorable satoori, “Yes! But my sister bit me!” The older sister immediately fires back that the younger one bit her too.

Lee Seon-kyun slowly emerges from his desk and gently asks what the origin of the fight was. They busily accuse the other of saying mean things like “You smell” and calling names like “Bug.” Lee Seon-kyun gives his final judgement by saying that since it hurt both of them when they bit each other, he thinks they should apologize to each other. He places their hands together and tells them goodbye, but it seems as though both sisters are unhappy with the verdict.

In Jung Ryeo-won’s office, she begins the interview by stating that although there probably aren’t any credible third-party witnesses; perjury is punishable by law. And we see the same two sisters standing before her (perhaps wanting a second opinion after the unsatisfactory conclusion with Lee Seon-kyun).

In intimidating legal jargon, she begins to summarize the case: “Legally speaking, in this case, the younger sister is the assailant and the older is the victim. However, because the younger sister was harmed first and more severely, this counts as excessive self-defense on the part of the older sister.” Both sisters look afraid and repentant as though they’re both defendants on trial in front of her.

In the end, Jung Ryeo-won draws the conclusion that the older sister must apologize to the younger. Softly, she apologizes, and when Jung says “Properly, please,” she immediately grabs her younger sister toward her and they hug (but it seems like it’s mostly out fear of Jung’s presence).

JTBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Dairy of a Prosecutor will begin airing on December 16, after the end of Chief of Staff’s run.

I need new dramas! US shows are in the mid-season final mode, the dramas I liked ended and I'm not interested by their substitute.

This one looks really good, so I need to wait now...

I've been "afflicted" since Pasta and then My Ajusshi happened. Doesn't look like it's curable now.

Lol, isn't it interesting??? He is not necessarily the most handsome or desirable. He is a married man, God knows I respect that. But he is also very lovable, I can't explain how, but I find him lovable!!! πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
Ok. At least I can enjoy him as an actor, of course, that is enough....

Thank goodness! Cases like the two little girls aren't likely to stretch into a season 2 :)

Slice of life and that voice! Two of my weaknesses in one drama.

Do you think these are actual scenes from the drama? To me it looks like character teasers and not parts of the drama itself. Not having seen any of the director (Age of Youth) or writer's (Age of Youth, White Christmas) previous works, do you think we could expect a little bit of romance or not?
