Is it sure that she's the female lead? Or is she just considering for the role?

To be honest I was looking forward for this drama since the news about Ji Sung being cast as the lead came out. This is the kind of redemption he needs after Ddandara. He deserves this kind of drama where he can fully showcase again his versatile traits as an actor. And then the female lead is Yuri? No offense for her fans but Im worried if she can manage to pull off her acting skills especially her role is the defender here. I was really aiming for Lee Bo Young to pick the role but there's no luck for it to come true because she clearly stated that she will not be working with Ji Sung anymore. 

If ever Yuri is really the lead, I will just pray to drama Gods that she had improved her acting and can be a match for Ji Sung's incredible performance :sweatingbullets:

  prison break + legal thriller + ji sung is the perfect combo. @chelleshawol many fans like you are waiting for them to work together on a drama. many hoped LBY would take the role. i guess they don't want to mix private life and professional matters. we have to also  take into account  that they have a child, who will baby-sit her if the two of them will be working ?? she won't be seeing her parents for 3-4 months. they should have asked Hwang Jung  Eum to be his leading lady again ><. they were so gooood in secret ,playing ennemies-to-lovers (:wub:), i prefer  more  Secret than KMHM, i'm more a melo drama person. moreover, HJE has starred in enough rom-com for the rest of her life, she should take a change in her acting career.

i haven't seen yuri's acting for a while, i watched her in Fashion King but she had a minor role. so i can't judge her.

knowing jisung, he will invest himself a 100%  with or without a good leading lady  and deliver a stellar performance. for this reason , i will watch it because i won't be disappointed by his acting

Yeah I understand that they have to babysit their daughter so LBY will surely not grab the role.

HJE and JS are my favorite kdrama OTP. I really really love their chemistry together. HJE is a great actress of her generation. She can do any genre including melo and romcom. I love to see them work together but I think it will be considered a miracle if it will happen because its very rare to pair up again with a former costar in korea. We got lucky in KMHM but I dont think we will get a miracle again for the third time. But who knows? :wub:

The thing i was ranting about is Ji Sung is back in the industry after the epic fail Ddandara so I was really looking forward for this. At first they casted Han Ye Seul and I was like okay I've seen her perfomances and I guess she can give justice to the role but then she declined. Then Yuri casting was announced. Why did they have a step backward here? Sorry if im a bit overboard and Im not judging her but pls did ji sung commit a crime? He deserves someone better. :tears:

I was thinking of posting below Tues 11/15 but  I refrained because..  I don't want wanna say anything until Ji Sung  confirms to star in  Defendant. And now that we have confirmation......

You see....I thought it was  the  Yoo ri. The actress . The one from drama  Heaven's Promise. cos I like her! But againi it's the other one.  I'm not gonna lie. I don't like the leading lady. I must say I'm deflated with choice of female lead.... I think if I'm not mistaken, this is the female lead from.... OCN drama Local Hero (which I drop halfway!). I'm not sold on her acting. I'm gong to watch this drama for Ji Sung brilliance and acting skills.  Female lead being  kpop girl idol doesn't have anything to do with me not  liking her. It's just.... This is gritty drama .. why not someone like..... Moon Chae Won? who can be feisty! But anyway....

 I'm happy Ji Sung accepted Defendant. I've been keeping my fingers crossed that he accepts this more than the period drama  so Yes,  for him I'm in!  the chance to see acting skills!.
