3 reasons why you don’t want to miss Lee Seung Gi and Lee Se Young’s new Rom-Com The Law Cafe

Just two episodes before its premiere, KBS 2TV’s new drama “The Law Cafe” is already stealing the hearts of viewers!

Based on the hit Internet novel of the same name, “The Law Cafe” is a romantic comedy starring Lee Seung Gi as Kim Jung Ho, a brilliant ex-prosecutor turned libertine, and Lee Se Young as Kim Yu Ri, an eccentric. a lawyer who becomes his new tenant when he opens a “law cafe” in his building. It’s worth noting that the show is a much-anticipated meeting between Lee Seung Gi and Lee Se Young, who co-starred in the hit drama “Hwayugi” four years ago.


Here are three reasons why you don’t want to miss out on this fun new show:

1. A legal drama taking place outside the courtroom

One of the key things that sets “The Law Cafe” apart from other legal drama is that with the exception of Kim Yu Ri’s final case in Episode 1, her legal battles will take place outside the courtroom.

Dramas that revolve around the law are usually played in law offices or courtrooms, but The Law Cafe takes place in a coffee shop – leaving behind those formal, stuffy settings for a cheerful, relaxed environment that most viewers will find much more familiar. Likewise, the cases taken up by Kim Yu Ri will address the legal issues that lurk in our daily lives, adding a healthy dose of realism and accessibility to the important subject of law.

2. Use of cliche wisely

The original Internet novel on which “The Law Cafe” is based contains many time-tested clues, including “friends for lovers”, “long unrequited love”, “romantic tension disguised as argument” and more.

While these formulas may be too familiar to viewers, they are also adored for a reason – and their use in drama right now viewers are passionately entrenched in the main pair.

But even though The Law Cafe does contain these sorts of cliche, there are already hints that things may not be going exactly as viewers expect. One big twist in Episode 1 was that Kim Jung Ho and Kim Yu Ri had dated in the past while Episode 2 surprised viewers when a romantic kiss on the hand suddenly turned into Kim Jung Ho who bit Kim Yu instead Ri. As the drama balances familiar clues with unpredictable plot twists, the story is sure to keep viewers in suspense.

3. A new and refreshing approach to pursuing justice

In just two episodes, Kim Yu Ri and Kim Jung Ho have already presented new, unconventional methods of sacrificing their lives to justice. Breaking down prejudices about how a lawyer can best protect his clients, Kim Yu Ri has boldly suggested that the best way a lawyer can help someone is to solve their problem before going to court.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that Kim Jung Ho is pursuing justice in a different, completely unexpected way. Though he appeared to have abandoned his legal career idly, it was revealed that he was secretly writing an internet novel exposing corruption at Dohan Construction.

The third episode of “The Law Cafe” airs on September 12 at 9:50 PM KST.

Meanwhile, catch up with the first two episodes of the drama with credits below!
