[Drama 2022] A Thousand Won Lawyer,천원짜리 변호사


Recommended Posts

I love NamKoong Min and I wish One Dollar Lawyer kept to its original 14 episodes if not longer.  I am sure if there weren't issues between SBS and the writers etc. , and SBS didn't messed up the broadcasting schedule after episode 8, ODL would have easily hit 20% in rating.   Even with all these broadcasting blunders, it STILL received the highest rating among all the mini-series of the week during its entire run! 


Bravo to Minnie and the ODL team for giving us just enjoyable drama. Hope to hear about his next drama/movie soon!

4 Reasons To Watch The K-Drama Series
One Dollar Lawyer

K-drama fans have been raving about One Dollar Lawyer, not only because of its strong ensemble but also due to its unique plot. 

If you are still in doubt that this drama will be worth your time, then read on to find out what you are missing out on!

A Dynamic Storyline



K-dramas have often amazed us with their unique plots and fresh perspectives. And "One Dollar Lawyer" is definitely among those dramas which will surprise you with its dynamic storyline. The drama is a typical good guy vs. bad guy trope, but with a whole lot of quirkiness and goofiness into it. 

Elemental to law and crime dramas, "One Dollar Lawyer" also throws curveballs your way when you least expect them.

Moreover, in the earlier episodes, it seems like any other law drama in which an upright lawyer always defends his clients and saves them from unfair punishment. But when the story behind the lawyer's past unfolds, it creates tension and suspense and keeps the viewers anticipating the next episode. 

Quirky Characters



When all the evidence points to the accused, and there is not even the slightest ray of hope left, Cheon Ji Hoon, AKA One Dollar Lawyer, comes and says to the victim, "I will save you". 

But he is not your ordinary lawyer. His way of solving cases leaves even the judges baffled and prosecutors challenged. And when the priciest attorneys charge a fortune to their wealthy clients, Cheon Ji Hoon rescues his clients from court troubles with a fee of only 1 dollar. And sometimes he solves their problems without even going to the court. 

His swag and goofiness give comic relief to the serious plot and keep the viewer's entertained throughout the

On the other hand, is our chic female lead - Baek Ma Ri.

Our female K-drama lawyers and prosecutors are known to be fierce. And Baek Ma Ri is no exception. Hailing from a rich family in the legal profession, she is a graduate of the Judicial Research and Training Institute. She has a strong sense of justice and commitment. 

But despite being born with a silver spoon in her mouth, Baek Ma Ri is seen sympathizing with the poor sufferers who were victimized by the rich and powerful. 

Our chic, feisty, and intelligent law professional has a strong will with a soft heart. 

At the beginning of the drama, the leads are seen against each other in the courtroom. But when circumstances bring these two characters together, it's a houseful for entertainment. 


Other characters in the drama like Sa Mu Jang (Park Jin Woo), Seo Min Hyeok (Choi Dae Hoon), and Na Ye Jin (Gong Min Jung) among others, also present unique characters and give the drama a smooth flow. 

Comedy At Its Peak

The drama is well-equipped with comic scenes. Cheon Ji Hoon, despite having a strong sense of responsibility, displays a goofy character who plays around and takes unthinkable risks. He and Baek Ma Ri are often seen pulling each other's legs. 

Moreover, the drama also has subtle humorous scenes which can be good laugh-out-loud moments. 

For example (Don't worry. No spoilers here!), in episode 3, when Cheon Ji Hoon assigns Baek Ma Ri as his lawyer, she is trying to refuse and is calling him respectively when he is walking away, "Wait, Mr. Cheon! Mr. Cheon!". But when he doesn't turn after persistently calling, she loses it and angrily calls out, "Hey jerk!". And he finally turns around. 

This scene really gave me a good laugh. 

There are more such instances where the characters subtly drop a bomb and have you rolling on the floor.

7 More Must-Watch K-Dramas Of 2022

Dec 27, 2022

It’s already that time of year where we look back at the second half of 2022 and the impeccable K-dramas that we have been blessed with. In case you missed part one, you can check it out here. So without further ado, here is the list for more must-watch K-dramas.

Disclaimer: List is in no particular order and only K-dramas that are finished airing by the end of December 2022 are included.

“One Dollar Lawyer”


“One Dollar Lawyer” stars Namgoong Min as Cheon Ji Hoon and Kim Ji Eun as Baek Ma Ri. Ji Hoon is a lawyer who only charges one dollar for his services. He is a lawyer that seeks justice and fairness for his clients and is fearless.

This series garnered quite a bit of buzz, mainly because the story was very enticing. Seeing each case and how the underdogs overcome seemingly impossible obstacles with the help of Cheon Ji Hoon was inspiring. Viewers will love the hopeful tone of the series and positive messaging that people can overcome evil even if they are poor and seemingly have no one on their side.
