JS and YSH have one thing in common: Jisung case is similar to YSH's one both are being neglected by the prestigious awards ceremonies ( Baeksang, Blue dragon awards, Grand bell awards, korea drama awards  etc.). i dont understand how Korea can be so blind and doesn't see their potential, they need to check their eyes. it's always the same people who are awarded.

 

It does make you wonder why either of them have not gotten any big recognition for their acting. I consider both of them 2 of the best actors around.

oh btw saw this in insta while typing haha  .. they're filming :)   ... it'll be airing jan 16 2017 :)

 Wow I'm getting excited. I'm not too worried about the neglect this drama is getting form SBS, the did the same thing to RDTK and it's at the top of the ratings. I just hope that the first 2 episodes are very compelling. If so I think people will stay tuned.

Ji Sung! looking dapper. I'll see his brilliant acting again. A role like this definitely suits him more than his last drama.. w/c I didn't watch..actually. :P

I was in the same boat w/his last drama but seeing him in that suit does give me some Secret vibes. crazy-monkey-emoticon-121.gif I've noticed at times his dramas can be hit or miss I'm ready for this one to be a complete turn around from the last,

I just wanna share.. Ji Sung's intersection scene from SECRET  is one of my favs in all of my kdrama viewing history. I was in awe! Him laughing then crying then doing  in the middle of the intersection .. it's so damn good acting!

He was brilliant and sexy throughout that whole drama. The fact that he turned his character from that psycho in the first 4 episodes into a great leading character to me was no small feat. I just don't think any other actor could have pulled it off . I can't wait for 1-16-17

@Berou Thank Youcrazy-monkey-emoticon-066.gif I just loved him in that drama and I might have to marathon that one again. This was the drama that I just got crazy over Ji Sung. I know that his character was far from #boyfriend/husbandgoals the type you would have to run away from in RL butcrazy-monkey-emoticon-121.gif

.@nyctocha  if you hadn't said sorry, i wouldn't have guessed that you were not a native. you don't have to say sorry. your english is good.  you remind of me, i'm not a native english speaker either. when i first created my soompi account i struggled a lot, it was hard for me to write  " long" sentences and posts. and after a while, my english level improved and now i don't struggle as much as i did before :)

they are official stills of Secret, Ji sing's previous drama, not the defendants's

I think that it will be difficult to fight against Hwarang... Hwarang is having a lot of hype, and there are a lot of people waiting for it... 

But it when this drama starts... Hwarang will be in the middle of their episodes (more or less), if I'm not wrong...

 i'm not watching the airing dramas for the moment, i don't know if night light is doing well. it seems like the competitors are rebel hong gil dong, night light and hwarang but each drama cater different audience: young people will go for hwarang, the old ones will go for rebel hong gil dong and the melo drama lovers will tune it to watch night light.

The defendant will attract a more mature audience and the ones who like thriller legal dramas will certainly find their happiness in it.

 i prefer  not to judge quickly, i've seen countless dramas that were hyped but failed to follow the hype.the prime examples are Scarlet heart and uncontrollably fond. big stars, k pop idols, hot hunks, eye candy don't mean that the drama will hit the jackpot. for a drama to be successfull it needs a balance of the right ingredients:

- the right actors aka good ones

- good script

-good production

-good promotion

if the script is filled with holes and incoherent, the public won't buy it.

 Think Secret vs Heirs.... it'll somehow gives us comfort. Heh.

 What Defendant should  have against others....

Grit and passion and  emotional thrust- we'll have that. Just imagine character of Ji Sung is a man on death row.

Brilliant acting - which we'll get from Ji Sung.

High quality writing. Tone of the story. Scene by scene execution.

Good cinematography.  Good editing. Good BGM is always plus.

Good directing.  The totality of drama as a whole.

All these elements... this drama will be  critics choice.   However viewers will want to see a drama that has flowery  good looking young actors... so I'm resigned to the fact. Still....Ji Sung and excellent acting is synonymous so I'll be watching this.

  january please come faster !!! :wub:

passion, grit and brilliant acting that's for sure. i wish the same for the directing, cinemtography, writing

 it's funny how rebel hong gil dong was offered to him and now it became its competitor 

i'm suddenly remembering remember which had all these elements and was also a legal thriller drama, SJW was fighting against time and his alzheimer, few months were left for him to clear his father name, so there was this passion and emotional thrust that  you're talking about. so much ressemblance between this two dramas.

@jongski yep, we will be spoiled in 2017 :).after jisung drama ends ( or a little bit before),we will tune it to watch YSH's.

we have quite a lot of things in common:

1. yoo seung ho

2. ji sung 

3. secret drama

4. machist melo lovers :D

 Seo Yeon-woo is added to the cast, the those of you who don't who he is, he starred in one more happy ending. he will have a minor role.

Well, I wasn't trying to judge quickly, but since Hwarang has a good actor (Park Seo Joon), and others who are also known as a good actors, and for the previews that I have seen, it seems that it will be good. Btw, I don't think that we can compare this two dramas, since they hasn't a lot in common. 

And yes, Scarlet Heart and Uncontrollably Fond were too hyped, and a lot of fans were deceived, so I think it's better to don't have high hopes.

You can never tell what people will tune into but it will have an audience for the first week since it's following a popular drama. I just hope the first 2 episodes can just grab the audience.  Chingu  @nyctocha is right Scarlet Heart had a lot of flowery good looking actors but didn't grab the ratings.

@evie7 yea I agree with you, sometimes I wonder why that drama was so popular but the story/directing was not that good. Some dramas sometimes made me watch until the end because of the actors and the hopes that the story will get better, but that happens too often to selected genres. .. Politics in SK is a hot topic right now, I hope this drama will benefit from it since it's related to prosecutors, laws etc. . Sometimes being an international fan is great when you don't have to pick which drama to watch in the same timeslot but most int'l viewers need to wait for subs TT  . Meanwhile Defendant on the other hand ... million won production ..
