It is based on a bestseller of the same name by an actual prosecutor named Kim Woong. While most dramas about prosecutors tend to show very high-profile trials, Kim Woong’s collection of essays focuses on the ordinary, day-to-day events of prosecutors who work in district offices around the country.

A drama depicting the mundane daily routine of overworked prosecutors staying up all night to tackle all the different cases handed over by the police.
Lee Sun Woong works at the Public Prosecutor’s Office in his local district. On the outside, he looks a bit slow and like he has no ambitions in life, but his inner self is different from what he appears on the outside.
Cha Myung Joo is an elite prosecutor, who was rising on the ladder of success at the Central District Prosecutor’s Office before being sent to a branch office.

Lee Sun Gyun & Jung Ryeo Won Team Up With “Age Of Youth” Writer-PD Tandem In New jTBC Drama

By abbyinhallyuland | July 25, 2019


Based on the best-selling book 검사내전 Prosecutor Civil War (literal translation) by Kim Woong, Lee Sun Gyun and Jung Ryeo Won challenge what seemed to be a healing drama, depicting the less romanticized lives of prosecutors.

Marie Claire
Scheduled to air at the end of the year, the workplace drama would focus more on prosecutors working in local districts.


Returning to the small screen since the well-loved series, My Mister, Lee Sun Gyun takes the role of public prosecutor Lee Seon Woong. Fresh from the success of the film Parasite, the actor aims to immerse as the main hero of the story. Additionally, this will be Lee’s first legal drama.

Meanwhile, Jung Ryeo Won who has delighted viewers in last year’s Wok of Love, will portray the role of an elite prosecutor. Interestingly, Jung won the hearts of many in her role as Ma Yi Deum in top-rating KBS2 drama Witch’s Court as a lawyer. Thereby, her upcoming role raises anticipation on how she will fair as a prosecutor.


Backing up the production is the creative team of writer Park Yun Sun and director Lee Tae Gon. The two have worked together on the two seasons of Age of Youth. Moreover, their combined works include Beloved Eun Dong and Alone in Love. Both are well-received romance melodramas.

Here's a little bit of info about the screen writer Park Yeon-seon from Dramabeans. Not having seen any of her dramas, I didn't know much about her, but she seems very solid although not really prolific, the last one being Age of Youth 2 from two years ago. I hope she is saving her best creative juices for this new drama.

top10_xmas.jpgHeadsNo2: Park Yeon-seon has built her career around mastering the ensemble show, displaying a distinctly unique ability to bring a disparate group of personalities together in a way that’s resonant and unforgettable. It’s her ability to find tiny human moments and built characters and relationships around them that give her dramas such a rich, slice-of-life feel, which we saw in her early dramas Alone in Love and Mixed-up Investigative Agency. Her characters come to life as fleshed-out, living and breathing individuals; we see them as real people, either people like us or people we know, which all but guarantees our investment in their journeys.

Moreover, Park has shown range in style and genre, whether it’s the nuanced relationship study that was Alone in Love, the rollicking treasure hunt of Mixed-up Investigative Agency, the haunting psychological thriller that was White Christmas, or the heartwarming ode to growing up of Age of Youth. Her dramas don’t tend to be ratings bonanzas, but her work inspires mania followings—the kind that keeps fans talking years after the broadcast has come and gone.

Credits: Age of Youth, Wild Romance, White Christmas, Mixed-up Investigative Agency, Alone in Love

The drama will start shooting 24 August, in Tongyeong city :thumbsup:




"In addition, more than 150 actors and staff will live in Tongyeong, which is expected to be a great help to the local business community.


An official from Tongyeong city said, “I think that the impact of attracting tourists through drama filming and stimulation of the local economy is great.” He said he would actively cooperate with the shooting of the prosecutor's civil war and plans to work together to promote Tongyeong city and drama through future agreements."


I think it's great that this drama takes place at a lesser known location and has the potential to bring good fortune to the local businesses, especially if it achieves commercial success. Good luck to the whole team. Can't wait to see the first fan-captured photos. 


Here's the map of South Korea to give you an idea how "remote" Tonggyeong is. It's the red marker below Busan. Does this mean they will speak with an accent like the people in Busan? :)

At the beginning, Kim Woong received a drama proposal and made a complete refusal to the production company. The production staff went to the Incheon Prosecutors' Office where Kim worked, and persuaded him, but he said, “If the prosecutor keeps being exposed to the media, he is resonated and he is inclined to get ahead.” After persuasion work, it was reported that he received approval.

He is in charge of the prosecution reform work such as improving the prosecution organizational culture and adjusting the right to investigate. "It's not a great book, but I signed up on the contract," he said. "What do you want to be known about through the drama?" He asked, "The prosecution is not only elite prosecutors investigating the fact that they are high-ranking officials and big business owners. "If the viewers know only the small daily life of life-type tests, I do not want more."
