Partner casts Kim Hyun-joo as a lawyer
Since Magazine Allo is being postponed, KBS is now moving quickly to swap in its replacement, a law series called Partner [파트너]. While the initial announcement didn’t pique my interest, I admit news of its leading lady did: lovely lady Kim Hyun-joo, of Insoon is Pretty, To Marry a Millionaire and, most recently, Boys Before Flowers.
She’ll take the lead as an attorney at a top international law firm; the drama focuses on the lawyers’ legal battles and interactions with judges and prosecutors in a “realistic” look at the Korean legal world. Kim’s character finds herself caught between law and justice, and is a passionate lawyer who may sometimes cross the line of overly rigid laws in order to do what is right.
I’m not sure about the subject matter, and I never really got into last year’s MBC lawyer drama Lawyers of Korea, but I do really like Kim Hyun-joo with her gentle aura.
The drama will air on Wednesdays and Thursdays, premiering June 24. It is written by Jo Jung-joo (Drama City: 쉿! 거기, 천사) and Yoo Mi-kyung (Drama City: 거미여인의 사랑법, Hometown of Legends) and will be directed by Hwang Eui-kyung (Mister Goodbye, Wedding).
