  • larus changed the title to [Upcoming Drama 2022] The Empire: Empire of Law, 디 엠파이어:법의 제국- Kim Sun Ah, Lee Mi Sook & Ahn Jae Wook-Sat&Sun@22:30 KST - Premieres on September 24

Kim Seon-ah X Ahn Jae-wook, 'The Empire' stills released




Actors Kim Seon-ah, Ahn Jae-wook, Lee Mi-sook, Song Young-chang, Shin-goo, and Oh Hyun-kyung unite as a top 1% family in beopbok with endless desires.


JTBC's new Saturday and Sunday drama 'The Empire: Empire of Law' (written by Oh Ga-gyu, directed by Yoo Hyun-gi), scheduled to be broadcasted for the first time on September 24 (Sat.) A drama about the fall scandal of those who have. Here, Kim Seon-ah, Ahn Jae-wook, Lee Mi-sook, Song Young-chang, Shin-goo, and Oh Hyun-kyung meet as a family in beopbok who hide their secret private life with the fame and privilege they have built up by law, foretelling explosive synergy in acting.


First, Kim Seon-ah takes on the role of Han Hye-ryul, the head of the special division of the Central District Prosecutors' Office and the enemy of the family that has inherited wealth and power. Her Han Hye-ryul is a character who has been denigrated for her achievements made with her own abilities and the prestige of her family. Unable to free her from the yoke of her family, she begins to flash her blades in an attempt to break free from it and realize her own desires. This charisma of Hye-ryul Han is a sign that Kim Sun-ah's unique cool and alluring acting and high synchro rate will fascinate her home once again.


Meanwhile, Ahn Jae-wook plays Na Geun-woo, a law school professor and Han Hye-ryul's husband. He is mentioned as the next presidential runner-up over the unfavorable environment, and it seems that he is living a perfect life, but in reality he is just a pawn on the chess board. The public, unaware of this private life, loved him, and Na Geun-Woo begins a thorough disguise to cover the truth. Ahn Jae-wook, who has an acting ability that permeates without limits, is curious how to express the gap between the characters who hide their two faces with a beautiful appearance.


Attention is also focused on Mi-sook Lee, a professor at Minguk University Law School and who will play Ham Kwang-jeon, Han Hye-ryul's mother. In her play, her Hammer renegade is a character who does not tolerate any risk of harm to her marriage and family in order to maintain her own empire. In particular, she has two daughters who are more precious than her life, and her character of Ham Gwang-jeon, which Lee Mi-sook will draw, is more about what choice Ham Gwang-jeon will make to protect them, and to protect her fortress built by her law. raise expectations


Song Young-chang plays Han Gun-do, the husband of Ham Kwang-jeon and Han Hye-ryul's father. Although he is the representative lawyer of Korea's top law firm Ham & Lee, he is a conspirator who only thinks of the law as a means of earning money and a way to rule. When the law, which had been used as a device to subdue others, tightens his lifeline, Han Geondo uses the law for a purpose he has never used before. It is curious what kind of synergy will be exerted by Song Young-chang, who has such an authoritative Hangundo character and deep acting skills.


Shin-goo plays Ham Min-heon, the grandfather of Hye-ryul Han, a former Supreme Court judge who has built up the best legal family. He became a tyrant worse than his tyrant father and took everything from his family. He has money, fame, and power, but he can't trust anyone. As a result, Shin Goo, who will return to the drama after a long time, will exert a unique presence and strengthen the narrative of the character Ham Min-heon, who is in love.


Oh Hyun-kyung plays the role of Lee Ae-heon, Han Hye-ryul's grandmother who captivated Ham Min-heon. She speaks English, Japanese, and Chinese, as well as cooking, arranging, massage, and braille. Lee Ae-hun hides the blade in her arms and seduces Ham Min-heon in an instant, and she succeeds in marrying him. However, there is an unstoppable ambition lurking inside her, and attention is focused on how Oh Hyun-kyung will portray her Lee Ae-heon's endless greed.


As such, ‘The Empire: Empire of Law’ has built a golden lineup of Kim Seon-ah, Ahn Jae-wook, Lee Mi-sook, Song Young-chang, Shin-gu, and Oh Hyun-kyung, raising expectations with the meeting of luxury actors who are trusted just by hearing their names. The first broadcast of 'The Empire: Empire of the Law' is awaited, where the full-fledged story of how the secret private life of the strong and privileged class, who inherited wealth and power and built a fortress by law, will be revealed.

JTBC's new Saturday and Sunday drama 'The Empire: Empire of Law' is scheduled to premiere on Saturday, September 24 at 10:30 pm.
