“One Dollar Lawyer” is a new drama starring Namgoong Min as Cheon Ji Hoon, a lawyer who only charges an attorney’s fee of 1,000 won (approximately $0.72) despite his renowned skills. A hero who comes to the rescue of clients without money or connections, Cheon Ji Hoon isn’t afraid of facing off against the rich and powerful who use expensive lawyers to escape the law.
Kim Ji Eun will be starring in the drama as Baek Ma Ri, who hails from a “royal family” among judicial circles and is in the final stages of training to become a prosecutor. However, her life turns upside down when her powerful grandfather Baek Hyun Moo (Lee Deok Hwa) orders her to work for Cheon Ji Hoon for two months.
In newly released stills from the upcoming drama, Cheon Ji Hoon and Baek Ma Ri get off to a rocky start during their very first meeting. While Baek Ma Ri is still working at the prosecutors’ office as an intern, Cheon Ji Hoon saunters in as if he owns the place, cockily throwing his arm over a chair and keeping his sunglasses on indoors.
When the two lawyers shake hands for the first time, Cheon Ji Hoon appears friendly and relaxed as he smiles at Baek Ma Ri—but Baek Ma Ri can’t help glaring daggers at the brazen visitor and his seemingly infuriating demeanor.
To find out why Baek Ma Ri gets so upset during their first meeting, catch the premiere of “One Dollar Lawyer” on September 23 at 10 p.m. KST!
