There’s a good chance on quality alone that KBS might dominate all the prime time slots next week when new Mon-Tues drama Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul Ho (My Lawyer, Mr. Jo) premieres. If Neighborhood Lawyer wins the ratings battle over Monster on MBC and SBS‘s Jackpot (The Royal Gambler) then KBS will finally have dug itself out of the Mon-Tues hole and feel plenty good about the runaway success on Wed-Thurs with Descendants of the Sun. Additional stills, trailers, and new drama posters are out featuring Neighborhood Lawyer leads Park Shin Yang and Kang Sora prominently, both playing lawyers and quirky ones at that. The drama is adapted from a popular webtoon and Park Shin Yang nails the schlubby but brilliant lawyer fighting for justice one neighborhood legal case at a time. Kang Sora remains warm and charming onscreen but my interest in her always waxes and wanes with how much I like a particular character she plays. Visually Park Shin Yang cleans up great when he goes from bum back to lawyer and Kang Sora actually looks more plausible as a young lady lawyer than many of her near age colleagues who have played lawyers in the past.
Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul Ho:
Wow.. Unnie looks so pretty… i’m so gonna watch it..
BTW that poster looks so similar with Misaeng’s poster lol
I hate shows that push so hard for a joke ?
I so look forward to this drama. Everything I read and all I see, are wonderful. Love the leads. Love the surprising teasers. One of my most expected drama.
Kang Sora is perfect! Might just tune in! I love her!
Park Shin Yang is a great actor and the rest of the cast are not too bad. But very likely Monster(MBC) will win the battle of the ratings for Mon-Tues slot.
Besides Park Shin Yang, I also like the PD for Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul Ho so will give this a watch.
I can’t wait to watch this drama. Park Shin yang is back on TV screen after 5 years can be the only reason to watch this drama. However, it’s not the case with this one because of all the teasers and trailer and other casts are also great so I’m really looking forward to this one.
I think monster will be a rating winner among the three but I hope neighborhood lawyer deliver. I will put my lowest expectation here.
