I’m pretty conflicted about upcoming SBS Mon-Tues drama Defendant. On one had it stars the incredibly magnetic Ji Sung, but then it also stars the bland as white bread Yuri of SNSD as his leading lady. He’s already had one SBS misfire with this year’s Entertainer, which proved that Hyeri is either a one hit wonder or simply ably directed by the PD of Answer Me 1988. I have yet to see Yuri deliver even one decent performance, but then again Defendant feels like a from-the-jail version of Two Weeks so the typical romance elements is likely to be absent or minimal so maybe Yuri’s presence won’t have too much of an effect on the proceedings. All I know is that Ji Sung playing a top notch prosecutor turned amnesiac murder suspect can’t be missed, especially after seeing him go through the entire gamut of emotions in just a short 40 second first preview.
