Hi. We would like to inform you about the cancellation of the press conference of the new SBS drama from Friday to Saturday “One Dollar Lawyer”.
One Dollar Lawyer lead actor Namgoong Min this morning felt unwell so he tested it with a self test kit and confirmed that it was positive [for COVID-19]. Therefore, it is currently planning to conduct a rapid antigen test.
However, for the actor’s health and on-site safety, we inevitably had to cancel the press conference as well as the radio performance “2 O’Clock Escape Cultwo Show” scheduled for today.
We apologize for the inconvenience to reporters and viewers who have expressed an interest in the online press conference. The premiere of “One Dollar Lawyer” will take place on Friday, September 23 at. 22.00 as planned, no changes to the schedule. We will notify you again when we discuss the ways we can provide an alternative to a press conference.
Once again, we ask for your generous understanding.
One Dollar Lawyer is a new drama starring Namgoong Min as Cheon Ji Hoon, a lawyer who, despite his famous skills, only charges 1000 won (about $ 0.72) from an attorney. A hero who comes to the rescue of clients without money and ties, Cheon Ji Hoon is not afraid to face the wealthy and influential who use expensive lawyers to escape the law.
One Dollar Lawyer premieres on September 23 at 10:00 PM KST. Check out the drama trailer here!
