Go Soo offered lead in legal thriller Insufficient Evidence

Looks like legal/crime thrillers are all the rage these days. Go Soo (Empire of Gold, The Way Home) is eyeing a new film project, and it’s called Insufficient Evidence. You could probably guess the plot from that alone, but to give you more specifics: The movie is a thriller about a lawyer who gets his criminal defense clients off in trial due to—you guessed it—insufficient evidence.

The role Go Soo would play is of a “two-faced lawyer.” (Insert “Is there any other kind?” joke here.) Sounds like that means he’d be a bit of a conflicted protagonist, in that he’s good at his job (so, yay for him) but ultimately working to free criminals (maybe not so good for the rest of us), and has “a cold mind but warm heart.” After spending much of his career playing good guys and heroes, it was nice to see him stretch his wings with darker, twistier types (see: Empire of Gold), so I’m interested in seeing what kinds of choices he takes on now that he’s moving along in his career.

Go Soo’s management, BH Entertainment, was quick to respond to initial reports about his casting by saying that he has received the offer and the screenplay, but has not yet decided on the project. He is currently filming Tailor, the Joseon-era sageuk in which he plays the royal clothier; his reps emphasized that he would be focusing on that project for the time being.

Insufficient Evidence boasts a rather hefty budget of 6 billion won and comes from the production company behind Gwanghae: The Man Who Became King (aka Masquerade), so this will be another major project for them. The screenplay was reportedly completed early and has been in pre-production for a while, and the film has secured Yoon Jong-seok (Marine Boy) to direct. The project plans to wrap up the rest of its casting shortly, and will begin filming in the latter half of the year.

Yea he was just fantastic in Christmas. You should also check out Bandage. I looooved him in there with HHJ. Personally, I find Go Soo to be actor she has most chemistry with. And this is coming from someone who's never seen her not have chemistry with anyone.

i think you should check out his recent movie 'Love 911' with Han Hyo Joo, their love strory and chemistry in the movie is awesome, plus his character is so cute as well as manly, another movie of his named 'Some' is also a very good movie, it's a movie about de ja vu, i liked it very much, haven't watched most of his dramas but 'Will It Snow For Christmas' is truly great...

I can never get enough of Go Soo. He was gorgeous in ‘Will it snow for Xmas?’ and my fascination with him only grew after that. The premise for this movie sounds interesting but Go Soo, do a rom-com (if possible mini-series) for us next.. please, pretty please…

I hope he will accept the role. I am glad Go Soo has many projects lately.

Random thought: Why actresses don`t have the possibility to play such roles?! I want to see movies with strong female characters in the center of the story.

You're right not many female strong characters around in dramaland, although most dramas have female as the main lead and it centers around them their characters are always hard to like, only drama that i can remember having a strong female character is Lee Bo Young's character in 'I Hear Your Voice'. It also usually depend on the writers, whether they are male writers or female writers they always portray female characters as weak for example the writer of the 'Heirs', in almost every one of her dramas she always portray male lead as voilent arrogant jerks and female leads as weak noble idiots...

SUPER excited for the drama but can I have someone else casted? Gosoo still has some improving to do and I would prefer if he did that in something else...

Well anyways, I will survive this too. It sounds interesting to me.
