Watch: Lee Seung Gi And Lee Se Young Test Their Chemistry At Script Reading For New Rom-Com Drama
KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama “The Law Cafe” has unveiled a glimpse behind the scenes of its first script reading!
Based on a hit web novel, “The Law Cafe” is a romantic comedy about Kim Jung Ho, a genius former prosecutor-turned-libertine landlord, and Kim Yu Ri, the eccentric lawyer that becomes his new tenant. Notably, the drama will mark the reunion of Lee Seung Gi and Lee Se Young, who starred in the hit drama “Hwayugi” together four years ago.
The newly released video begins with footage of the drama’s stars introducing themselves to one another at the table read, before cutting to leads Lee Seung Gi and Lee Se Young greeting viewers directly.
Lee Seung Gi describes his character Kim Jung Ho as “a former prosecutor who was called a ‘monster genius,’ because he had the kind of genius that made it possible for him to memorize anything after seeing it just once.”
Meanwhile, Lee Se Young introduces her character by saying, “Kim Yu Ri is lovable but eccentric and unpredictable, and whenever she sees injustice, she’s unable to just stand by and watch. She’s a lawyer who’s like a warrior of justice. She’s a character who opens a law cafe on the first floor of the building owned by Kim Jung Ho.”
Expressing confidence in their drama, Lee Seung Gi goes on to remark, “I think people really want to see this type of romance these days, and because our drama deals with the law, I think viewers will be able to relate to it a lot.”
As for why she decided to join the drama, Lee Se Young recalls with a laugh, “Because the character of Kim Yu Ri was so appealing, I chose the role without any worries or hesitation.”
The drama ends with the two stars asking viewers to tune in to “The Law Cafe,” which premieres on August 29 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
