Lee Jun Ki and Seo Ye Ji have confirmed they will be appearing in tvN’s “Lawless Lawyer”, which is slated to begin airing in May. Lee Jun Ki is set to play Bong Sang Pil, who used to be a member of a gang before becoming a lawyer. He treats law books like kitchen appliance manuals, and his preferred method of resolving a situation includes fists rather than the law. Seo Ye Ji will be portraying Ha Jae Yi who lived a self-directed life since she was a kindergartener. She becomes a great lawyer who fights for justice but ends up getting demoted after attacking a judge. She meets lawyer Bong Sang Pil following her demotion and they get tied up with each other.
“Lawless Lawyer” will be the story of Bong Sang Pil going against an absolute power in the court of law to avenge his mother. It will be a legal action thriller that follows a man who has wanted nothing but to get revenge, and the growth he goes through as he seeks justice. The script will be written by Yoon Hyun Ho, who has worked on the drama “Remember” and films “I am a Father” and “Confidential Assignment,” and the project will be helmed by producing director (PD) Kim Jin Min, who was worked on other dramas like “Time Between Dog and Wolf,” “Pride and Prejudice,” and “Marriage Contract.”
“Lawless Lawyer” is set to begin airing in May after “Live,” the follow-up to tvN’s current weekend drama “Hwayugi.”

Ugh at another legal drama, but I like both leads so I'll be checking this out. Hopefully it will be more action revenge and less boring courtroom scenes.
