  • Park Joo-Mi  is adder to the cast and is playing Jung Nan-Jung

You're welcome @valsava  ,the story sounds so different and interesting, and even more interesting is that the drama isn't centered around the male lead 

@rosem Yes this story is so different compared to most of the others that has been shown and this one seems like it's not centered around the King and Nobles

According to the article in the link I posted above, this drama is about lawyers and Jin Se Yeon may be one of them or some kind of angel, life savior as refers to the title, "The Flower in Prison" that "helps the falsely accused"! I wonder what the role Ko Soo is offered and is still considering is about! Hmmm!

This is a 50 episodes drama! Ko Soo, you have to be in this drama please! I'm already imagining myself sitting in front of the tv seeing you for 50 hours! Ahhh! The feeling is killing!

In recent times, Lee Byung Hoon (PD of Dae jang Geum) had concentrate a theme of his drama surrounding a "department" or an administration offices in the Joseon Dynasty

Dae Jang Geum, - the Royal Kitchen

Yi San - Dohwaseo (Bureau of Painting & Drawing)

Dong Yi - Jangakwon (  장악원, 掌樂院 Bureau of Music) & The palace inspectorate

Ma Ui - veterinary 

This time it is the advocate or litigation office or Services called Oe (Wae) Ji Bu (외지부 ,外知部), similar to a defense lawyer, which works "outside" the Justice bureaucracy system hence the name (외,外). 

In Episode 60 of the drama Dong Yi, after Choi Suk Bin (Dong Yi) left the palace to reside in her private residence palace Inhyeongung (이현궁, 梨峴宮), she became a representative advocate for the marginalise citizen who were wrongly accuse for crime that they didn't commit

The service of Waeji-bu (外 知 部) is called for when there is offenses & defenses that were exchanged between the plaintiff & the defendant, contents of the documentary evidence (书 证) & the accounts of the witnesses, and all the legal debates that ensued.

The lawsuit process of the Joseon dynasty showed a minimized intervention on the pan of the authorities, & also the enlarged role of the parties directly involved. But because of such characteristics that involved parties were in need of some professional help from legal practitioners & for those who were in need of such help, the Waeji-bu (外 知 部) services were the ones to consult. At the request of the clients, Waeji-bu services will listened to the nature of the complaints & created written accusations for the client, or provided the clients with advises regarding the actual lawsuit process & related techniques. 

When they were hired as legal representatives of the clients, they appeared at the local office and initiated a lawsuit for them, and whenever they won the suit, they were compensated by the clients as well, but then consigning a representative is hardly practice

This drama will most likely taken around the 1560 (the reign of Myeongjong) onwards...because in 1478, this advocate representative was banned

Jin Se Yeon Will Fight For Justice In 'The Flower In Prison'

Jin Se Yeon

 According to the Korean media outlet The Star, Jin Se Yeon has taken the role of prison advocate Ok Nyeo in the 50-episode Joseon-era drama "The Flower In Prison," also known as "Ok Joong Hwa."

ok nyeo is a woman who was born in prison and spends her life helping the imprisoned. During the Joseon era the Korean legal system was less formal and so mediators such as Ok Nyeo helped mediate on behalf of those charged with crimes. She uses a private litigation system known as Wae Ji Bu.Jin's character is not a real person but the historical drama will feature some real-life events and actual historical figures.Jin Se Yeon has only been acting for a few years but she's managed to land some impressive roles. She made her debut in 2010 with a supporting role in "It's Okay Daddy's Girl." After that she played Joo Won's doomed bride in the 2012 historical drama "Bridal Mask." She had a leading role in the 2014 dramas "Inspiring Generation" with co-star Kim Soo Hyun and she also played Lee Jong Suk's spy agent love interest in "Doctor Stranger." None of these characters were easy to play. She's only 21.

"I think I still have a lot of growing up to do, but I've had to play mature characters who must endure many trials and tribulations, including extreme solitude," Jin said in an interview with the media outlet Chosun Ilbo.

In 2015 she took a break from serious roles to play a detective in the narcotics squad in the comedy film 'Enemies In-Law," which was a spin-off of the film "Meet The In-Laws." She's a cop from a family of cops and he's a criminal from a family of criminals. But he will move to the right side of the law for her.

Jin's most likely co-star in "Flower in Prison" is actor Go Soo. Last seen in the drama "Empire of Gold" and the film "The Royal Tailor," Go Soo is currently considering a role in the film. Park Joo Mi, who appeared in the drama "Blood" will play the character Jung Nan Jung.

Lee Byung Hoon, who directed the historical hit dramas "Dong Yi" and "Dae Jang Geum," will direct "The Flower in Prison." Choi Wan Kyu, who wrote the screenplays for "Triangle," "All In," "Iris" and Guam Heo Jun" will write the script.

Jin Se Yeon begins filming her new drama in mid to late February. "The Flower In Prison" is expected to premiere in March, following the end of "My Daughter Geum Sa Wol."
