Jo Yeon-hee to appear in 'A Thousand Dollar Lawyer'




On the 8th, Inyeon Entertainment, her agency, said, "Jo Yeon-hee will appear as Oh Min-ah in SBS's new Friday-Saturday drama 'One Thousand Dollar Lawyer'."


SBS's new Friday-Saturday drama, 'One Thousand Dollar Lawyer' (played by Choi Soo-jin, Choi Chang-hwan, directed by Kim Jae-hyun, directed by Shin Shin-hoon), which is scheduled to be broadcast in the second half of this year, has a fee of only one thousand won, and is by far the best '1,000-won lawyer' Cheon Ji-hoon (Namgoong-min) works with wealthy lawmakers. It is an exhilarating court action drama that fights against expensive lawyers. Previously, while the casting of actors such as Namgoong-min, Kim Ji-eun, Choi Dae-hoon, Lee Deok-hwa, and Park Jin-woo gathered topics, Jo Yeon-hee is also planning to make the play richer.


Jo Yeon-hee transforms into Oh Min-ah, full of flex in the play. Oh Min-ah is a person who lives with the pleasure of shopping, and all that remains is time thanks to her wealthy parents. While attending music school, she fell in love with her law student and overcame the fierce opposition of her father-in-law Baek Hyun-moo (Lee Deok-hwa) and ended up marrying her. Her love for her daughter Baek Ma-ri (Kim Ji-eun) is great, but on the other hand, she is going to show her cool mother, so the curiosity about her character Jo Yeon-hee will play is growing.

I think it is a guest role but not just a cameo, but we will see her a little longer. Perhaps for one- two episodes with a certain case.

Namgoong Min, Kim Ji Eun, And More Get Together For “One Dollar Lawyer” Script Reading


Aug 12, 2022
by S. Cho

“One Dollar Lawyer” has given viewers a glimpse at the cast’s first script reading!

SBS’s upcoming Friday-Saturday drama “One Dollar Lawyer” is about troublemaker lawyer Cheon Ji Hoon who is extremely skilled but only charges 1,000 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.

The drama stars Namgoong Min, Kim Ji Eun, Choi Dae Hoon, Lee Deok Hwa, Park Jin Woo, and Gong Min Jung.

Namgoong Min stars as the most cost-effective legal hero Cheon Ji Hoon who people can meet for just 1,000 won. Kim Ji Eun stars as 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.

Choi Dae Hoon portrays prosecutor Seo Min Hyuk who is also from the judicial circles’ royal family. 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.









Baek’s founder and Baek Ma Ri’s grandfather Baek Hyun Moo is played by Lee Deok Hwa. Park Jin Woo will be playing Sa Moo Jang, a legal assistant who is the John Watson to Cheon Ji Hoon’s Sherlock Holmes. Gong Min Jung plays the reliable Na Ye Jin, a self-proclaimed public prosecutor who juniors look up to.





Right after the reading, Namgoong Min shared, “This is a project I’m really looking forward to. The chemistry between the writer and the director is really great. This is a drama you can watch comfortably, laugh at, and be touched by, regardless of age and gender. I will show you a lot of my bright image.”

Kim Ji Eun added, “You can say this is a superhero story you can meet for 1,000 won. Please give us lots of attention.” Choi Dae Hoon shared, “A comfortable, fun, and heartwarming story will be able to seek out viewers. Please give us lots of love.”

Script reading for SBS’s upcoming legal drama One Dollar Lawyer

by Jenzy



Script reading stills have been dropped for SBS’s upcoming action law drama One Dollar Lawyer, starring Namgoong Min (The Veil), Kim Ji-eun (Again My Life), Choi Dae-hoon (Insider), Lee Deok-hwa (Business Proposal), and Park Jin-woo (Military Prosecutor Doberman).

The drama promises to be a snappy courtroom flick centered around Namgoong Min’s character — Cheon Ji-hoon — a lawyer who fights the corrupt rich while only charging his clients 1,000 won (essentially $1) in legal fees. Notorious for taking on, and winning, David vs. Goliath cases, Ji-hoon is colorfully described as a lawyer with a sophisticated perm and the personality of a London back-alley gangster. Do I know what that means? No. Am I intrigued? Most definitely. He’s assisted by his secretary Sa Ma-jang — played by Park Jin-woo — who is the Watson to his Sherlock.


Working with him, or should I say against him in the courtroom, is prosecutor Baek Mari, played by Kim Ji-eun. As someone who comes from a long line of prestigious legal professionals, Mari is considered legal royalty. She’s poised and self-assured in the courtroom, but when she meets our wildly temperamental lawyer, her smooth career trajectory comes to a grinding halt.

Lee Deok-hwa plays Baek Hyun-moo, Mari’s grandfather and founder of the top law firm “Baek.” Amidst his success, Hyun-moo is a lawyer that leads by his heart. It’s his pathos-driven sense of justice that will have him pushing Mari toward Ji-hoon in the first place.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a legal drama without a power-hungry bad guy, which is where Choi Dae-hoon comes in as prosecutor Seo Min-hyuk. Hailing from another prestigious family of lawyers, Min-hyuk believes in playing the rich person game to get ahead: leveraging connections, getting into prestigious schools, and marrying rich. He’ll have his sights set on turning “Baek” into “Baek and Seo” by putting a ring on our female lead.

The rest of the cast includes names like Lee Chung-ah (Awaken), Gong Min-jung (Hometown Cha Cha Cha), Ha Sung-Kwang (From Now On, Showtime!), and Kim Chul-yoon (Military Prosecutor Doberman), among others.

With the writers Choi Soo-jin and Choi Chang-hwan (Heart Surgeons, Defendant) behind the script and PD Kim Jae-hyun directing, One Dollar Lawyer plans to air in the Friday-Saturday slot on SBS.
