Currently airing SBS Wed-Thurs drama While You Were Sleeping is midway through airing and has turned out to be more entertaining to watch than a ratings success. I haven’t been following the scheduling of the follow up drama so it was a surprise to hear that the whole shebang is basically confirmed. SBS will be airing Nothing to Lose, a legal drama with leads Park Eun Bin and Yeon Woo Jin, with supporting roles by Dongha and Haeryung of the idol group BESTie. Unlike Sleeping which has legal elements and certain characters in the legal profession, Nothing to Lose sounds a lot like KBS Mon-Tues drama Witch’s Court as all the leads are working in law. Park Eun Bin is a hot tempered judge who is affected by the unjust trauma of having her older brother falsely accused of murder and then later murdered by the rich and powerful. Yeon Woo Jin plays her fellow judge on the bench who is kind hearted but has a cool sharp mind in presiding over cases. Dongha will be a dogged prosecutor while Haeryung is signing up to play an idol-turned-law school student.
Nothing to Lose comes from the PD Lee of Entertainers and Puck and a newbie screenwriter Seo In. The drama is scheduled to premiere in the middle of November.
