Jin Goo and Seo Eun-Soo have confirmed star in JTBC’s upcoming drama “Legal High,” a remake of Japanese drama series of the same name. (A follow up to this post)


“Legal High” first aired in 2012 on a Japanese channel Fuji TV. It is a comedy drama with background set in a courtroom, featuring a passionate lawyer named Komikado Kensuke, who is willing to do everything he can to win cases. It also features another character named Mayuzumi Machiko, a hard-working rookie lawyer with a strong sense of justice.

First, Jin Goo will play in the role of Go Tae-Rim, an equivalent to Komikado Kensuke from the original drama. While he is unafraid to make ruthless comments to others and rather full of himself, this vicious characteristic of his lets him win at every case he takes over. No matter what the cause is, a case doesn’t mean anything to him unless he can win.

On the other hand, Seo Eun-soo will play in the role of rookie lawyer, Seo Jae-In. While she began her career with a motive to help those in need, she soon faces the reality, where a lawyer who can’t win is useless. At the end, she teams up with Go Tae-Rim.

A source from JTBC said, “Jin Goo and Seo Eun-Soo plan to provide joy and laughters to you as they portray these realistic situations. Please look forward as the actors plan to go through a transformation for their new roles.”

Meanwhile, “Legal High” will premieres sometime in February, 2019.

Younger! I watched a bit with my mom, and I thought it would make a great Korean adaptation. The storyline seems right up their alley.
