Namgoong Min is rocking on the filming set!

 

He doesn`t look like playing a poor lawyer. I suspected that he is a rich guy because no one can survive just with 1000 won from lawyer fees. :)

Living with relatives, borrowing clothes, relaying in people kindness for his help (food, small gifts or tokens of gratitude), owning a place or living in an abandoned one (or in the car - there was American movie with a lawyer like that, don't remember the title, though), using the false name to create a new identity... 

I've watched enough stories to know there is a way to live like that if you're a single without anyone to take care of. It's more or less a temporary life, but still possible (in drama, in reality it's probably unlikely, honestly don't know how South Korea works with the fees, taxes, ect.).

Or he is rich and wants to do something different, less boring or has a mission, or whatever. 

Namgoong-Min looks good in the role, like always. Let's see what we're going to get in July.

In movies perhaps but in real life is unlikely. 1000 won is like one dollar. It is like a symbolic payment. From what I read, In South Korea everything is expensive, including going to school. I assume he was rich, something happened in his life and he wants to help those in need. I hope we`ll find more informations soon.

It depends on someone's expectations and adaptability, I suppose. Human beings are quite adaptable if faced with impossible. It's marvelous how creative some people can be, even with one or two dollars of paid job (that fee could be 1000 won if lost, but if won the penalty paid may hit quite high level?).

 

It might be that he has a normal job, or part time job, and works as a lawyer for people who could pay normally high prices, or maybe he is seeking for something, like taking cases that relates to certain thing, slowly building the background for his plans (revenge?). My imagination is going wide right now, sorry.

I also hope we'll get more information soon. The premise is quite intriguing - I definitely need more details to satisfy my curiosity.

Namgoong Min, Kim Ji Eun, Choi Dae Hoon, Lee Deok Hwa, and Park Jin Woo will be starring in a new drama together!

SBS’s upcoming Friday-Saturday drama “1000 Won Lawyer” (literal title) is about troublemaker lawyer Cheon Ji Hoon who is extremely skilled but only charges 1000 won ($0.78) as his attorney’s fee. The refreshing law story follows Cheon Ji Hoon as he faces against the rich who escape the law and lawyers with expensive fees.

Namgoong Min will be joining his first SBS drama in two years as the most cost-effective legal hero Cheon Ji Hoon who people can meet for just 1000 won. With his stylish permed hair, Cheon Ji Hoon gives off a powerful impression as a rebel among legal circles. Namgoong Min previous impressed in numerous projects including “Stove League,” “Good Manager,” “The Veil,” “Doctor Prisoner,” and more. He also won the Grand Prize at the 2020 SBS Drama Awards.

Kim Ji Eun will be playing the role of Baek Ma Ri who is in the last stages of training at the Judicial Research and Training Institute to become a prosecutor. She is from a “royal family” among judicial circles with superb qualifications and a splendid future set out for her. When the confident and arrogant Baek Ma Ri meets Cheon Ji Hoon, her smooth-sailing life gets turned upside down. In addition to having starred in “The Veil” with Namgoong Min, Kim Ji Eun is currently starring in “Again My Life.”

Choi Dae Hoon will be playing the role of prosecutor Seo Min Hyuk who is also from the judicial circles’ royal family. He hopes to maintain the perks he enjoys from being born from a wealthy family and being a part of the inner circle . Returning to Korea after wrapping up two years of training at the Brooklyn district’s attorney office, he hopes to achieve his next life goal of marrying Baek Ma Ri and changing her family’s Law Firm Baek into Law Firm Baek&Seo. Choi Dae Hoon previously starred in “Crash Landing on You,” “Flower of Evil,” “Beyond Evil,” and more.

Lee Deok Hwa will be playing Baek Ma Ri’s grandfather and representative attorney Baek Hyun Moo who founded the large-scale Law Firm Baek. He believes that lawyers defend with the heart, and although Baek has numerous elite lawyers employed, he wants Cheon Ji Hoon to join his law firm. This is also the reason behind why he sends his granddaughter Baek Ma Ri to Cheon Ji Hoon’s side. Lee Deok Hwa previously captivated audiences in “The Red Sleeve,” “A Business Proposal,” and more.

Park Jin Woo will be playing Sa Moo Jang, the legal assistant who looks after Cheon Ji Hoon, spending his own money and riding his own car without a salary after meeting Cheon Ji Hoon. True to his name which directly translates to “legal assistant,” Sa Moo Jang also makes the perfect pair with Cheon Ji Hoon. Park Jin Woo starred in numerous projects including “Stranger” (“Forest of Secrets”), “The Lady in Dignity,” “Memories of the Alhambra,” “Military Prosecutor Doberman,” and more, and he will showcase great acting chemistry with Namgoong Min after having starred in “Stove League” together.

Namgoong Min has showed off a sweet gift from his former co-star AOA’s Seolhyun!

On May 25, Namgoong Min uploaded a photo on Instagram of him posing with a coffee truck sent by Seolhyun to the set of his upcoming drama “1000 Won Lawyer” (literal title)! The truck banner features a pretty picture of the two stars and Namgoong Min added as a caption to the post, “I’ll drink the delicious coffee well, Seolhyun.”

 

Namgoong Min and Seolhyun co-starred in tvN’s 2020 drama “Awaken” where they portrayed fellow cops working at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency.

Seolhyun commented a series of clapping emojis and Namgoong Min responded to her, “I drank it well and I’m gaining strength~”

Their “Awaken” co-star Lee Chung Ah also praised Seolhyun for her kind gesture, commenting, “The pretty girl is really pretty.”

 

Namgoong Min is currently filming for SBS’s “1000 Won Lawyer” where he plays troublemaker lawyer Cheon Ji Hoon, who is extremely skilled but only charges 1000 won ($0.78) as his attorney’s fee. The refreshing law story follows Cheon Ji Hoon as he goes up against the rich who escape the law and lawyers with expensive fees.

Thanks larus! Claps! I noticed CDH in part of of this drama. 

 

 CDH IS soooo good in  Monster Beyond Evil ( best drama of 2021!) and even post on thread he deserves best supporting actor. He did get nominated  so his acting was recognized. OJS won (deserving) for the Uncle drama. Hoping his character here has grit!
