Hwang In Yeop And Heo Joon Ho Confirmed To Join Seo Hyun Jin In Upcoming Drama About Law
“Why Oh Soo Jae?” is about the coldhearted lawyer Oh Soo Jae (Seo Hyun Jin), who becomes empty after only chasing success, and law school student Gong Chan (Hwang In Yeop), who isn’t afraid to do anything in order to protect her. A wrong decision causes the direction of their lives to change, and the mystery romance drama follows the story of them trying to escape the bottomless pit they fall down.
Already, viewers are anticipating the chemistry between Seo Hyun Jin, Hwang In Yeop, and Heo Joon Ho. Seo Hyun Jin has previously been confirmed to play lawyer Oh Soo Jae, who becomes determined after overcoming her regrets. Oh Soo Jae is the youngest partner at the leading TK law firm and an ace everyone acknowledges. She’s competitive to the extent of making her opponents bow down to her regardless of who they are, and she’s equipped with a self-righteousness that makes her unafraid of the world.
Oh Soo Jae has run desperately to achieve “perfect” success, but her life goes terribly awry when she makes a wrong decision while believing that it’s an opportunity for success. However, rather than regretting her choice, she becomes tougher with malice and aims to go even higher. Having already showcased her talented acting skills to the public, Seo Hyun Jin is expected to impress once more as she transforms into Oh Soo Jae, who hides her pain and emptiness behind a cold appearance.
Hwang In Yeop will be taking on he role of law school student Gong Chan, who reaches out to Oh Soo Jae after her downfall. Gong Chan is a warmhearted youth who knows how to understand people and empathize with them. Although he appears to live a smooth-sailing life, he also has a painful past through which his fate became twisted. Gong Chan begins to experience a change after fatefully meeting Oh Soo Jae, who has been pushed out of her position as an affiliated professor for the law school due to an unexpected incident. Gong Chan eventually makes Oh Soo Jae, who is hard on herself, realize what love is, and viewers can anticipate Hwang In Yeop and Seo Hyun Jin’s romantic chemistry.
Veteran actor Heo Joon Ho will be playing TK law firm’s chairman Choi Tae Guk, who is true to his own desires. He’s a figure who openly crosses the boundary of good and evil without any hesitation if it’s to materialize his desires. Choi Tae Guk is also keeping an eye on Oh Soo Jae, who is acting loyal to him while hiding her true feelings, by keeping her close to him. One of the interesting points to look out for in the drama will be the tense confrontations and acting synergy between Heo Joon Ho and Seo Hyun Jin.
Earlier this year, it was also confirmed that Bae In Hyuk would be joining the project as Choi Yoon Sang, a sophomore at Seojoong University’s law school and the second son of chairman Choi Tae Guk. When he was studying to retake his college entrance exam, he developed a crush on his tutor Oh Soo Jae, and he reunites with her at Seojoong University’s legal clinic where she has become a professor.
“Why Oh Soo Jae?” is slated to premiere in the first half of 2022.
