Ji Sung in Defendant and Joon Gi in Two Weeks are both fugitives on the run, and they both are dads with a little girl. Both are amazing stories with a similar feel of dark mystery, action, and suspense.

Both dramas include lawyers who solve a crime that is close to home. In Defendant the victims were his wife and daughter whilst in Whisper the assailant is his new bride and her lover (so he his less inclined at the beginning to solve it). In both dramas they have a female helping them solve the crime. Both have similar feeling to them as well.

They both start with the family husband being charged of murdering their family and chased by the police even though all the police has is circumstantial evidence.

Both have similar vibes with the storyline of Ji Sung is trying to find justice for his lost lover/wife. Both are fantastic and if you like one you would like the other.

Both dramas deal about prosecutors, family murder and in both dramas the main leads try to find out what truly happened that lead them to be in the current situation.

On Lookout we have a prosecutor and a police officer, on Defendant a prosecutor as main characters. In both dramas one of the leads will have to leave their position (but for different reasons). They both are trying to seek for justice for their families, both of them lost a loved one. In both dramas they dont trust the police and the justice system. Also shows a lot of corrupted politicians.

Both dramas have law and politics as main plot. Defendant is more drama because the case itself involved the prosecutor life; in Stranger, the prosecutor's family is not involved on the case, his life is not the main plot.
Both have a reliable and strong female lead. In Defendant is the lawyer and in Stranger is the Lieutenant.

Both have children involved as the big part of the plot. In the Defendant the father had to listen so the child doesn't get killed the same in Wanted where the mother has to listen to kidnapper for the sake of her child safety. Both shows have this ability to make you feel as a big part of it, like you're experiencing everything together, once you start it is hard to stop. Both focuses on justice and crimes.
