JTBC’s Legal High has gone on a casting spree. The latest to announce their onboarding include actors Yoon Park (Room No. 9, Radio Romance), Chae Jung-ahn (Suits), and Jung Sang-hoon (Big Forest).
These three will be on the opposite team of the main leads, Jin Gu (Untouchable) and Seo Eun-soo (Hundred Million Stars From the Sky), and they will provide an intense source of rivalry. Legal High is based on a Japanese drama by the same name, which aired from 2012 to 2013, about an almost inhuman lawyer who will stop at nothing and use the most bizarre methods to win his cases.
Jin Gu plays the lawyer whose case success rate is 100-percent, and Seo Eun-soo plays a novice lawyer whose faith in the law is 100-percent. This will be a refreshing comic legal drama about how these two completely different lawyers end up working together. Yoon Park, Chae Jung-ahn, and Jung Sang-hoon have confirmed they’ll be playing lawyers from the bigwig B&G Firm, that poses a threat to Jin Gu’s small office agency.
Yoon Park plays the ace lawyer of B&G, who learned how to win from Jin Gu’s character. However, he has a gentle charisma that’s completely opposite of his mentor. Chae Jung-ahn plays a partner at the B&G firm, whose main role is to be the source of information. Despite her fragile looks, she’s a skilled, practical strategist who prepares all the countermeasures for the B&G team. Finally, Jung Sang-hoon plays an ambitious lawyer who dreams of winning over Jin Gu. Even though he may look mean-spirited, once he gets drunk, his true disposition shows: a pitiful middle-aged man with many emotional scars. He also blacks out each time he drinks.
Written by Park Sung-jin (Miss Mamma Mia) and directed by PD Kim Jung-hyun (Hwayugi), Friday-Saturday drama Legal High will air on JTBC in February, after SKY Castle finishes its run.
