Shogo Kai is an arrogant lawyer at one of the biggest law firms in Japan. He is excellent at his job and only cares about winning his cases. He is close to becoming a senior partner at his firm, but his bosses are concerned with his sole focus on winning. As a condition for him becoming a senior partner, his boss requests that he hires a young lawyer as an associate. Shogo Kai interviews a variety of prospects, but none really capture his attention until he meets Daiki Suzuki... Daiki Suzuki has had a rough childhood, having lost his parents at a young age and then being raised by his grandma. Despite his hardships, he is an extremely intelligent young man with a remarkable memory. He works a variety of part-time jobs in order to financially support his grandmother, and also does odd jobs here and there, like taking the University Entrance exam for others. Once this is discovered, he is kicked out of school and barred from ever taking the bar exam. Once he moves to Tokyo, he continues doing petty crimes. However, when his grandmother's health takes a turn for the worse, he needs to start making real money in order to pay her hospital bills. That's when he meets Shogo Kai...

First of all, this dorama is based on an American series under the same title, and has a Korean adaptation as well, but I haven't watched neither of them. That said, I'll go straight to the point.

Story. The story is... Okay. I don't think the cases were very original, but the underlying main plot concerning the main protagonists was interesting. The cast is not too original either, but the dorama does make a decent job at getting you attached to them if you stick around long enough. I'd say this series' strongest point is Kai and Suzuki's relationship, how their interactions as a mentor-pupil eventually lead to their growth (well, mostly Suzuki). Other than that, characters are rather flat and the romance sub-plots are very poorly developed, to the point it feels forced.

Acting & music. It felt pretty awkward and forced most of the time, although the cringy lines might have a lot to do with that. As for the music, it was extremely bland, so much so it sometimes detracted to the tension the scene was trying to build. If I had to describe it, it'd be elevator music. If you've watched it, you know what I'm talking about.

Enjoyment & rewatch value. Don't get me wrong, it's not like it can't be an enjoyable watch, despite it being a technically very mediocre dorama. It can be a fun thing to watch ironically with a friend, or try to count the times romantic tension is built between Kai and Suzuki, despite the writers' efforts to insert hetero romance. It can be fun to watch it again after a long while with the same mindset. But if you're expecting a serious lawyer series, this is not for you.
