Nothing to Lose adds Dongha and Haeryung to its lawyer lineup
We’ve got several more lawyers to add to the mix in SBS’s upcoming courtroom drama Nothing to Lose. Up to join Park Eun-bin (Age of Youth 2) and Yeon Woo-jin (Seven Day Queen), who are both still considering their offers to star as judges, are Dongha (Suspicious Partner) and idol group BESTie’s Haeryung (Star of the Universe).
If she accepts, Park Eun-bin will play a ticking time-bomb of a judge, who regularly works herself into a temper in court, especially if the source of her ire is an unrepentant defendant. Nothing to Lose will revolve around her fight against the big, powerful baddies that framed her older brother for a murder he didn’t commit, and killed him as well. Yeon Woo-jin is considering the role of a fellow judge, though his temperament is much more suited to his occupation than his colleague. Described as cold-headed and warm-hearted, Yeon Woo-jin’s would-be character is called the “wise Solomon,” and will maintain a hard-to-define relationship with Park Eun-bin’s character. They’re peers and rivals, at times at each other’s throats, and at other times acting like a new couple.
Dongha has been offered the part of a very capable prosecutor who graduated with Park Eun-bin at the top of his class. Once he’s latched onto a criminal defendant, he doesn’t ever let go, earning him the nickname “Mad Dog” (heh), and always challenges directives from above he believes are unjust. It’ll be interesting to see whether he’ll aid Park Eun-bin or work against her, especially if he is under the impression her brother was a murderer. Dongha is certainly broadening his range with every role, going from petulant chaebol heir (Chief Kim), to a psychopath (Suspicious Partner), to potentially a prosecutor here. I hope he does pick a project soon, even if it’s not this one, ‘cause I’m eager to see him back on my screen soon.
Reports have gone back and forth on whether idol-actress Haeryung has already confirmed her role, but the character she’s up to play is still a law school student with a pretty colorful background: She’s a third-generation chaebol as well as a former idol, but she also has a very quick mind that would excel in the legal world. Unfortunately, her gold-spoon background is a source of prejudice from those around her, but that doesn’t stop her from pursuing a career as a judge. I don’t think I’ve ever seen BESTie idol Haeryung in a variety show, let alone a drama, but I’m going to try to be optimistic and hope for the best regarding her acting abilities.
Nothing to Lose will follow While You Were Sleeping in November, in SBS’s Wednesday-Thursday slot.
