Jung Ryeo-won considering new legal drama

by tineybeanie

 

Actress Jung Ryeo-won (Diary of a Prosecutor) may be coming back to the small screen with I Will Start the Defense. The drama is about a rookie public defender who’s only three months into her job when she has to defend the murderer who killed his own significant other.

Jung Ryeo-won’s character is the main lead who has been a motae solo (“single since birth”) for her entire 33 years of life. As she’s called to defend this murderer, she falls into the biggest moral dilemma of her career. If Jung Ryeo-won confirms, it’ll be her third legal drama. In Witch at Court and Diary of a Prosecutor, she played the prosecutor, so it’ll be interesting to see her take on a lawyer’s role in I Will Start the Defense.

Written by Kim Dan and directed by Kang Min-goo, I Will Start the Defense will begin filming next February, and will likely air sometime in 2023 on the global online platform OTT.

Jung Ryeo Won and Lee Kyu Hyung will be starring together in an exciting new drama!

On December 3, it was confirmed that the two actors would both be appearing in the upcoming drama “Let’s Start the Defense” (literal translation).

Helmed by “Itaewon Class” producing director (PD) Kang Min Gu, “Let’s begin the Defense” is a legal mystery drama about two public defenders who become entangled in a serial murder case involving wealthy elderly people. The drama is written by rookie writer Kim Dan, who won the Excellence Award at the Korea Story Contest, and produced by Arc Media, the production company behind “The King’s Affection” that is expanding the domestic and international base of K-content.

Jung Ryeo Won, whose last project was about two years ago, will play No Chak Hee, who was once an ace lawyer with the highest winning rate but has been demoted to a public defense lawyer. Her name “Chak Hee” represents “living a good life,” but her last name “No” symbolizes how she has deviated from that expectation. She is someone who fiercely works hard and will go through any means to win a case. However, a year ago just before she was about to be promoted to a partner, her license was almost suspended after she got tangled up in a certain case. Her goal is to make a comeback to the law firm as soon as possible.

Lee Kyu Hyung, who portrayed by good and evil roles, will star as Jwa Shi Baek. He is a person who is cold and merciless to the strong but is kind and warm-hearted to the weak. When graduating from law school, he was able to become a judge, prosecutor, or a lawyer at one of the top three law firms, but he rejected all of them and became a public defense lawyer instead. However, he has a very private life that even his secretary who has worked with him for a long time doesn’t know about it.

The drama’s producers shared their excitement for having cast Jung Ryeo Won and Lee Kyu Hyung, who are both actors with a wide acting spectrum. In particular, Jung Ryeo Won already has experience acting in legal dramas, like “Witch’s Court” and “War of Prosecutors.” They added, “We’re already looking forward to the heated acting competition between the two actors.”

The actors will present a high-quality, well-made mystery in order to showcase what two public defense lawyers, who have very different personalities, values, and legal philosophies, go through as they get intertwined together due to a serial murder case.

Filming will start in January 2022, and it will air in the second half of the year. The drama is currently in discussion to air via OTT platforms.

The new drama 'Let’s Start the Defense' has confirmed the casting of actors Jung Ryeo Won and Lee Kyu Hyung and will begin shooting. 'Let’s Start the Defense' is a legal mystery drama that takes place when two publicly appointed lawyers get entangled in a case of 'serial murder of a wealthy old man'.

Noh Chak Hee, played by Jeong Ryeo Won, who announced her return to the small screen after two years, is a lawyer who was relegated to the public election from the famous law firm ACE, which has the highest win rate. She does everything in her power to win, whether by hook or by crook.

 

Then, she was mistakenly entangled in a case she had to take over so she could be promoted to a partner, and she became a public defender for the case. Her goal is to become an icon in the public sector by taking on the case of a major player, and to make a comeback to a law firm as soon as possible. 

Lee Kyu Hyung, who has shone his presence across good and evil, takes on the role of Jwa Si Baek, a public defender called ‘Psycho', who is strong-headed and is completely different from Nok Chak Hee as he does everything in his power to defend poor and innocent people. After a hot confrontation during a corporate whistleblowing lawsuit, they left a rather unpleasant impression on each other. Soon, Noh Chak Hee became a public defender after getting into trouble with her law firm and shares an office with Jwa Si Baek.
