Kwon Sang-woo, Bae Sung-woo form partnership for Fly From Rags to Riches
Kwon Sang-woo, Bae Sung-woo
Kwon Sang-woo (Mystery Queen 2) and Bae Sung-woo (Live) have confirmed that they will be starring in the new SBS drama Fly From Rags to Riches. It will tell the story of how these two men defend and help raise the voices of innocent victims who have been framed in court.
Kwon Sang-woo plays a public defender who only graduated from high school. Born on a small island to an undertaker father, he realizes late in life that he’s interested in the law. He has ambition and fiery passion that drive him. Without any connections or resume-worthy experiences, it’s only his meddlesome personality, empathy for others, and belief in justice that have gotten him this far. He listens to the petty offenders that have all been ignored by the system. Finally, he comes across a case that makes him the first to get a retrial and win for a common criminal offense.
To reveal the truth, he teams up with Bae Sung-woo’s character, a crude but expressive reporter. After college, he worked as a part-time laborer and became a reporter because of his extraordinary writing skills. He threw away the path of success in order to pursue the stories that no one tells. Unlike his appearance, he’s an affectionate crybaby. The team-up between these two buddies against the corruption of the judicial system promises to be a refreshing and comic drama.
Directed by Kwak Jung-hwan (Miss Hammurabi) and written by Park Sang-gyu, SBS Friday-Saturday drama Fly from Rags to Riches has begun filming and will air in the latter half of this year.
