Kim Myung-min turns courtroom shark for A New Leaf

Ah, now this is the stuff: Human-legal drama A New Leaf has released its third teaser, and Kim Myung-min is in fine form as the relentless ace lawyer cross-examining a witness on the stand. Judging by the look on intern Park Min-young’s face, she finds his verbal assault a bit much, but I absolutely love it when he’s being this commanding.

In fact, it’s almost enough to make me wish that he weren’t going to get amnesia early on and change his personality, since it’s so much fun watching Kim Myung-min throw his weight around onscreen. But I will concede that perhaps we’ve gotten too used to seeing him play these kinds of strong characters (White Tower, Beethoven Virus, King of Dramas) that it’s more of a stretch for him to get in touch with his softer side. And Kim Myung-min attempting something unexpected can also lead to loads of fun, as when he took on a comic role as an uneducated gangster in Bad Family.

Overall the show looks like it’ll boast slick production values (even if that leads to stuff like that “law pirm” label in the teaser, which, HA) and some solid acting. Because of the recent spate of preempted broadcasts, A New Leaf has pushed back its premiere a week and now airs its first episode on April 30.

Kim Myung Min, Kim Sang Joong, Jin Yi Han...

Those who watch Empress Ki has witnessed JYH's deep and sexy voice combined with very cool character *swoon*

That dude is the BOSS! Learn from him, PMY! Use your smile to set them up and then lay in the Perry Mason voice to take over the screen!

LOL at the Perry Mason reference. I haven't heard that name in a looooong time.

I concur with the comments here about KMM being an awesome actor and having a great voice. That was what got me watching KoD. A friend recommended that drama, and I was just going to check out the 1st ep., I ended up coming back for more. His voice got me right away. I would also add that KSJ is not shabby in the voice department either. I noticed his voice (which I also love) right away in City Hunter (and KSJ was one of the main reasons why I kept watching that show as well).

I am really hoping that PMY will learn a lot, acting with such accomplished actors. This is a wonderful opportunity for her. I loved the Perry Mason reference, I still watch his show whenever I can. (Another favorite of mine, and yes, about his voice too).

Kim Myung-min owns every roles he ever played and this will be no different.
I hope to see him with an actress around his age with acting chops that would set the screen on fire, someone like Ko Hyun Jung.

Pairing of KMM & KHJ -- I've wished that for a long time too. Writer Kim Yeong-hyeon once said she thought Ko Hyun-jung would be great in a Bridges of Madison County-type story -- a love story for an older couple. Here's her leading man.

That would be SO awesome!

I, too, long to see KMM be paired with "an actress around his age with acting chops that would set the screen on fire".

Wait....somehow I totally missed the fact that EVIL DAD is in this drama!!! LOL I might watch it now...

I've liked all of the PMY dramas I watched, except I swear the girl only has two facial expressions: her 'happy' face and her 'serious' face.

So looking forward to this. For Kim Myungmin of course, but almost as much for Jin Yihan. Knowing I'll see him in this makes letting go of Empress Ki a little easier. How awesome was Tal Tal in ep48? Such pain, such anguish! Sigh.

Oh. My. God. That voice is pure sexiness.

It constantly amazes me how Kim Myung-min distinguishes between each and every character of his and even makes them memorable. God bless his wonderful soul for such talent.

Gotta say, I'm more excited to this drama, more than any drama that premiere that week. I love all the actors, like Chae Jung Ahn, so-so with Park Min Young.

KMM is so fine!! A hot damn ahjussi! I could watch him everyday.

I also laughed at Konglish "law pirm". LOL

Can someone tell me when 'law pirm' was said because I didn't hear it in trailer?

It's at 0:21. Flashes by the screen pretty fast. You can also see it under the 5th screencap.

Really ? LOL..
I sincerely hope they just chose the wrong font type where "F" looked similar to "P", otherwise that would be so... (lost of word) *sigh*

I was also wondering where that "Law Pirm" thing was, as I wasn't sure I heard it in the trailer either. Thanks guys for explaining, and yes, that is funny. I also agree with SongSong's comment. And I too, am excited about this drama the most, among all the dramas premiering next.
