The main character Himi Ko is a lawyer who is an expert in the field of crisis management. Her main area of activity is not in a courtroom but within the shadows of many of the big scandals. As a genius "spin doctor", she has managed to solve 99.9% of her client’s issues and requests. If need be, she would even manage to reverse falsehood into justice. And most of all, she has a strong belief in supporting women, especially those who are stuck in a crisis and will go all the way to solve some of the most tricky cases. This is a drama which depicts such a determined character who takes whatever step she needs to help people who are at the edge of their lives! Edit Translation

A crime solving drama with a twist

This drama is about a bunch of lawyers in the crisis management department where they help clients, who are facing some sort of scandal, and their problems with the least amount of damage, such as reputation and stuff.

It is a typical case solving drama, with an underlining story involving the main character that becomes the main part of the climax of the drama. And even though the headline says 'with a twist', the twist isn't huge or revolutionary by any means, it does give the drama a bit of freshness IMO ^^

The acting is great, but I might be a bit biased, because I'm in a totally 'I love Takeuchi Yuko' cloud at the moment ^^ But also because her acting is REALLY good, as well as the rest of the cast. They have a nice chemistry with each other and all the characters has their own unique personality which makes the drama stand out even more.

I really like the opening or whatever you wanna call it but the rest of the soundtrack doesn't really stand out. It's not bad by any means, it just doesn't make a lasting impression on me.

All dramas, movies or tv-series, even games, loses a bit of rewatch value (or replay in some cases ^^) since you already know what happens. In this case, knowing what happens is not a deal breaker, so if you like it, you could definitely enjoy watching it again ^^

I really enjoyed this drama, the acting and all the little moments that made the drama ^^ If it gets a second season, I will definitely watch it.

If you haven't seen it yet, I would highly recommend that you check this one out.

"Scandal Senmon Bengoshi QUEEN" is such a superbly executed drama. Takeuchi Yuko is the titular queen and absolute brilliance at Himi, and the entire crew that surrounds her (including the ever fun Mizukawa Asami) really give the drama its feel - fun, smart, and savvy! The script really elevates the actors too. The story is well-written, and the build to the end is so well-done; I appreciated the writing that much MORE once I finished the drama! As much as I did love the drama though, it's not particularly original as it did feel like a Japanese adaptation of the popular American drama, "Scandal". From the cases that the crisis management team took, to their look of their office, to even the clothing fashion that the team wore, it was very clear that Himi was modeled on Olivia Pope to me. Having said that, I loved the American "Scandal" and I loved this drama too - there is enough originality in this drama that you will still be engaged and love every minute of Takeuchi's Himi. She revels and relishes in the character and it is SO MUCH FUN to watch! :)
