Watch: Kim Bum, Ryu Hye Young, Kim Myung Min, And More Are Out To Investigate The Truth In “Law School” Highlight Reel
JTBC released a new highlight reel for its upcoming drama “Law School”!
“Law School” is a campus mystery that follows the story of students and professors of South Korea’s top law school who get caught up in an unusual case. The drama stars Kim Bum as top student Han Joon Hwi and Ryu Hye Young as the tenacious Kang Sol A.
The highlight video begins by asking the question, “Is law just?” The teaser proceeds to introduce the law school, which is known as “a bloody battlefield that has gathered all the geniuses and gifted people who excel in South Korea.” In addition to Han Joon Hwi, who passed the second round of the bar exam, there are plenty of other talented students such as Kang Sol B (Lee Soo Kyung), who already had perfect scores for TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and TEPS (Test of English Proficiency) in middle school.
Nonetheless, the genius students are still intimidated by the criminal law professor Yang Jong Hoon (Kim Myung Min). Kang Sol A, who just barely entered the school through a special screening, is already feeling down from being amidst all the brilliant students when she’s further discouraged after being picked on by Yang Jong Hoon to answer questions in her first lecture. Professor Yang Jong Hoon shares his goal, “Even if I can’t make them into respectable legal professionals as a professor, I won’t produce even one scoundrel of a legal professional.”
Tensions rise when the former chief prosecutor and the law school’s adjunct professor Seo Byung Joo (Ahn Nae Sang) is unexpectedly discovered dead. The police suspect murder, and suspicious circumstances surrounding the professors and students at the law school begin to surface one by one. Yang Jong Hoon, who had to quit his job as a prosecutor because of Seo Byung Joo, puts himself on the list of suspects. Another person he suspects is Han Joon Hwi, since he loses his composure at any mentions of Seo Byung Joo, hinting at a hidden story behind the two. Kang Sol B and Seo Ji Ho (David Lee) also appear suspicious, and this is all mysteriously linked to a child rapist case.
The video ends as Yang Jong Hoon comments, “You said you were going to catch the real culprit. Don’t lose the real culprit, don’t fool around, and thoroughly investigate the truth. Can you do it?”

“Law School” will premiere on April 14 at 9 p.m. KST.
