David Lee, Lee Soo Kyung, And More Are Law Students With Different Goals And Backgrounds In Upcoming Drama “Law School”
“Law School” is about the students and professors of South Korea’s top law school who get caught up in an unusual case.
On March 11, the drama released new stills of four students with different keywords: escape, success, love, and challenge.
First off, Kang Sol B (Lee Soo Kyung) was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. She comes from a family of judges, and she has maintained first place with top grades, thanks to customized tutoring set up by her mother. She has always received all “As” on her report card, so she’s annoyed when she gets a “B” next to her name because of Kang Sol A (Ryu Hye Young). Her goal is to “escape” her helicopter mother who takes too much interest in everything she does. She believes the only way to do that is to become a judge, which is why she worked hard to enter law school. However, in the photo, she looks uninterested in what’s going on and focuses only on her tablet, which hints she’s a “lawciopath” (a word formed by combining “law school” and “sociopath.”) who only cares about her goal.
Seo Ji Ho (David Lee) dreams of “success” after his family suddenly went under. He entered law school in order to live more leisurely, and his ultimate goal is to become a lawyer for a large law firm who makes a lot of money. He is quick to calculate gains and losses, so he only chooses whatever is an advantage to him. He doesn’t waste time on unnecessary things and only makes friends who will benefit him in the long run. In the photo, his eyes are blazing with confidence and determination, and it will be intriguing to find out how far he will go to achieve his purpose.
Then there’s Jeon Ye Seol (Go Yoon Jung), a gorgeous student who graduated from a prestigious university. She has a lively personality and enjoys the attention people give her. Her keyword “love” describes her reason for applying to law school. She applied with her boyfriend who wanted to study law, but unfortunately, she passed the exam on her own. The new still shows her looking bored by the lecture, and it further depicts her goal isn’t to study law but to go to the same school with her boyfriend.
Last but not least is Yoo Seung Jae (Hyun Woo), a former doctor who begins to study law. While learning how to deal with social order, he feels a sense of despair he has never experienced before. This is because even for someone who went to medical school like him, he finds the logic and will needed in law school “challenging.” He tries to not fall behind his younger colleagues, and he silently endures the burden and stress of studying. The new photo depicts his silent desire to do well in law school.
The production crew shared, “These characters with different personalities, strengths, and goals met in the fiercest law school of Korea. As they grow to become part of the legal profession, their stories will create diverse episodes. Please look forward to Lee Soo Kyung, David Lee, Go Yoon Jung, and Hyun Woo’s realistic acting.”
“Law School” will premiere on April 14 at 9 p.m. KST.
