Watch: Namgoong Min And Kim Ji Eun Make An Unlikely Duo In Hilarious “One Dollar Lawyer” Teaser
SBS has unveiled a new teaser for their upcoming drama “One Dollar Lawyer”!
“One Dollar Lawyer” will star Namgoong Min as Cheon Ji Hoon, a lawyer who only charges an attorney’s fee of 1,000 won (approximately $0.75) despite his renowned skills. A hero who comes to the rescue of clients without money or connections, Cheon Ji Hoon isn’t afraid of facing off against the rich and powerful who use expensive lawyers to escape the law.
Kim Ji Eun stars as Baek Ma Ri who is in the last stages of training at the Judicial Research and Training Institute to become a prosecutor. She is from a “royal family” among judicial circles with superb qualifications and a splendid future set out for her. When the confident and arrogant Baek Ma Ri meets Cheon Ji Hoon, her smooth-sailing life gets turned upside down.
The teaser shares a hilarious preview of Cheon Ji Hoon and Baek Ma Ri’s quarrelsome chemistry. It opens up with Baek Ma Ri making a grand entrance as she struts down the path in a hot pink suit with a bold smile. However, her confidence quickly turns into disgust when she arrives at Cheon Ji Hoon’s messy office, and her grandfather Baek Hyun Mu (Lee Deok Hwa) warns in a voiceover, “If you can’t last two months there, don’t even bother coming to Baek Law Firm.”
Baek Ma Ri thinks Cheon Ji Hoon is an oddball as she finds him hiding behind his desk when she comes in. Furthermore, he playfully wonders if he should let her serve as a probationary judicial officer at his law firm and randomly bursts into laughter.
Baek Ma Ri asks in outrage, “No matter how bad things in this industry are, lawyers should have some dignity. Why are there so many strange lawyers nowadays?” Cheon Ji Hoon may be odd, but he’s a genius lawyer who never backs from a case. The clip ends with Cheon Ji Hoon provoking her, saying, “Tell me if you can’t do it,” and Baek Ma Ri retorts, “Do you think I won’t be able to do it? I’ll endure two months, no matter what.”

“One Dollar Lawyer” will premiere on September 23 at 10 p.m. KST.
