"Who is your partner?" When you take a look at the definition of 'Partner', it gives you synonyms such as colleague, sharer, spouse and accomplice. A partner is a person who is strongly associated with me; the one who knows me very well and stays by my side. The word 'Partner' takes a different meaning when it is used in a law firm. Partners are the people who survived the power struggle. They are executives who are on the top of the law firm pyramid. Enterprises are law firm's partners. Law firms fight each other to become a partner in the business. They struggle to be close to power and to become a slave of money. There are some lawyers who want to be the partners of commoners as well. They are willing to be the spokesperson for the underprivileged. It is a story about partner; the one who is going to stay by your side and fight together in front of law.

Cast & Credits
The story is good, the characters are very well written. This is especially true here, because the characters stay true to their basic nature throughout the drama. There aren't any miraculous changes in nature or transformation from evil to good. It's more like,as the drama progresses, we learn more about who they are,the choices they make and come to accept them for it. I guess what I'm trying to say is, the drama/writers do not make or project any judgements about their characters, but leave them for us to accept,all the good and the not-so-good included.
The cast was equally good. Lee Dong Wook did not disappoint, Kim Hyun Joo was very endearing and every other cast fit in well.
Like I said before, the story moves along at a good pace, sustaining our interest with enough emotion,suspense and court room action.
The only thing I felt lacking in it, was probably the romance angle. Tae Jo and Eun Ho became great partners, but the underlying suggestion of romance which was always hinted at, remained just that- a possibility. Perhaps that's the way the writer/makers wanted it to be, but I was left wishing to see how it would have turned out.
Both the leads are good and very likable charactors. I like the character of the lead actress, shes gutsy cute clever and loyal (I like these traits in a girl, dont like stupid and helpless kinds)
The main story is flanked by side stories of different cases which are interesting and the court cases which are quite good and pull you in.
There is a nice chemistry between the leads although there is not too much romance, (I would have been happier if there was more)
I had a bit of an issue with the second pair romance.***Spoiler***ahead
I was not at all comfortable with their adultry. Whatever the reason adultry is not the right thing for married people. Either end your marriage and have affairs and if you dont want to or cant then control yourself and dont have them. Its not right to hang on to both. That was the only dirty thing about the drama and made me dislike the second leads.
Well over all it was a good drama and I enjoyed watching it, although I dont think ill rewatch it.
