Park Tae Yong and Park Sam Soo fight for judicial victims who are falsely accused. Park Tae Yong, a public defender, was born as the son of an undertaker on an island. He did not take the typical route to become a lawyer. After graduating from high school, he did not go to a university. He later passed the bar exam and became a lawyer. He is full of justice and has empathy for others. He will defend all kinds of petty offenders. A turning point occurs in his legal career when he becomes the first attorney to win a general criminal retrial case. Park Sam Soo is a reporter. After he graduated from the university, he worked as a non-permanent employee. Thanks to his excellent writing skills, he became a reporter. He looks for stories which are ignored or passed over by other reporters. He is soft-hearted and easily moved to tears. Though his work does not bring him financial stability, his writings are able to deeply move the hearts of readers, some of whom volunteer their own resources and skills to support his journalism. Working with Sam Soo is Lee Yoo Kyung, who, despite a silver-spoon upbringing, is a brave, justice-seeking rookie whose first scoop is Tae Yong's victorious retrial case. Seeing Tae Yong's courtroom performance, Yoo Kyung is, like Sam Soo, struck by his passion, empathy, and drive to bring justice to the victim.

Park-Park Bromance: The Best!

I throrougly enjoyed this series from beginning to end. It was heartwarming, funny, made me cry at times, and thrilling to follow through each cases. One saddening thing about this show is its almost three-week halt and the need to change Park Sam Soo’s actor in the last four episodes of the show. Despite this, I waited and managed to finish the show.

Jung Woo-sung did an amazing job on taking over Bae Seong-woo’s role after his departure from the show. But I think Bae Seong-woo still is the perfect fit for the role. I really enjoyed his acting from Episodes 1-16. He’s really a good actor if not only for the controversy he faced while filming the show. I regret that he didn’t get to finish this series.

Although the finale was satisfying, Episode 20 definitely felt really rushed and I wanted to see more of how the last case was resolved and the hear the specific verdict. I felt the build-up was lacking and the closure weak. The two cameos at the end were a nice touch, too. I didn’t see that coming. The finale is good but it could be better. Maybe there’s a Season 2 coming out? I don’t know but the ending is really open-ended. Overall, I really liked it and if there’s a Season 2, I might watch it if Bae Seong-woo will be back. I loved the bromance of this show!

Fight for truth and justice despite the odds

1. Loved the Park Tae Yong and Park Sam Soo, they both want money and success yet they forego of it to pursue justice. I also loved the actors. KWON sang Woo is ageless, Bae Sung Woo is crazy fun and Jung Woo Sung is too tall and handsome to be sloppy and goofy ?
2. Drama was less about legal scenes but more on exploring the feelings of the wrongly accused and the real killers. Ep 9-10 were ?. This drama had a lot of sincerity and heart, without being too preachy.
3. We know there are really a lot of corrupt people in the government, from the police, prosecutors, mayors to judges. It is hard to change the system. But we should also remember there are good guys out there willing to work hard to ensure justice and truth.
4. I loved the ensemble cast, from the 4 main baddies to Tae Yong's tight circle of friends.
5. Also loved the last minute cameos of Lee Jong Hyuk, Lee Elijah and Lee Jung Jae.

1. The drama spent too much time on the truck murder case, almost 10 episodes that sometimes there were too much flashbacks, too much rehashed scenes and conversations (How many times did i near I'm Han Sang Man??" I wished they kept the drama at 16 episodes (18 at most) instead of 20.
2. The final episode was okay but too convenient. The Seungwoo principal and director easily apologized to everyone. Also it felt like they didnt really take down the bad guys. Im sure they'll be back after the publicity has died down. So goes back to what did Taeyong and Samsoo actually accomplish?
3. I thought Tae Yong wanted to change the system that's why he is running for a seat in Jongno, but he ended up foregoing the chance and work on the ground. It was okay but he will never change the system if he stays small. Let Samsoo do the ground work and he goes up the chain.

Rating: 8/10
