In the first season, Bong Tae Gyu played Lee Gyu Jin, the divorce specialist lawyer who’s also the only son to a chaebol family and known as a “Mama’s boy.” As a member of the Hera Club, he gathers money illegally through any means with Joo Dan Tae (Uhm Ki Joon) and Ha Yoon Chul (Yoon Jong Hoon). After he found Min Sul Ah’s (Jo Soo Min‘s) smartphone, he threatened Joo Dan Tae with video evidence of his affair and a voice recording, but he wasn’t able to carry out his plan because the phone was stolen back by Goo Ho Dong (Park Eun Suk). In the final episode, he received help from his mother and was determined to be innocent in the reinvestigation for Min Sul Ah’s murder case. Lee Gyu Jin’s father also revealed his wishes to turn him into a politician.
