A great cast still needs at least a solid script and poor Lee Jun Ki has been foiled by successive bad writing for many dramas now. I’m optimistic for his upcoming tvN drama Lawless Lawyer by the screenwriter of Remember who also wrote the movie Confidential Assignment and was one of three writers in the movie The Attorney. Lawless Lawyer continues Lee Jun Ki’s quest to cosplay every major profession and this time he’s on the written side of the law rather than the brute force cop side. His leading lady Seo Ye Ji is coming off a critically praised turn in Save Me and there are veterans aplenty in this cast including Lee Hye Young and Choi Min Soo. The drama premieres in early May after Live.
Omaygahd, i’m so ready for this one, bring it on!
Exactly. My dear Lee Jun Ki was victimized by bad writings of his last few dramas.
I really hope LL will do well. LJK legitimately needs a successful and a hit drama and I am praying hard this year lady luck will finally side him.
And here I am super stoked seeing him and Seo Ye Ji in one frame. Can’t wait.
I’m surprised he hasn’t focused more on movies after the string of bad kdramas. If I’m correct, he hasn’t acted in a movie since the late 00’s, does anyone know if he has gave any indication why?
Anyone I wish him luck and I’m happy the industry hasn’t given up on him. I think everyone agrees he’s talented but just needs the right drama.
Isn’t it because of the government ban on him?
Or idk, might be his personal choice.
Idk the exact reason but I guess it has a lot to do with the fact that he was blacklisted during President Lee’s reign, lasted roughly 8 years. He was even denied awards and nominations and most probably given shitty drama choices. Now is a bit tough for him to return to movies since he has yet to have a hit drama post MS. He still have great relationship with PD Lee Joon Ik so I am hoping he would get casted in his movies but I guess when casting in movies, it majorly boiled down to the producers and investors. I don want to hope too high and too far for now, what’s most important for me is for him to be given a good drama that will merit his incredible talent and hard work.
resident evil, dont know exactly his role but he promoted in korea along with the cast dont know if it did well in korea though
Idk for some reason why my comment cannot go thru.
I don’t know the exact reason why he has not done movie for years but it has a lot to do with the fact that he was blacklisted during President Lee’s reign and the ban lasted approximately 8 years. He was even denied awards and nominations and most probably given limited and shitty drama choices. It was tough for him but the fact that he still survive and remains popular at least among international fans is remarkable.
I think now it’s tough for him to return to movies since he has yet to have a hit drama post MS. He still have close relationship with PD Lee Joon Ik and I was always hoping he would get casted in his movies, but then again, casting in movies depends a lot on investors and producers and he has yet to prove himself a money-maker.
I don’t have too high a hope for him for now, what’s most important is for him to be given a good drama that will merit his incredible talent and hard work. I really pray that Lawless Lawyer will eventually break the curse finally for him.
Bad writings? Solely your opinions. Lol Reading such an arrogant like make you wonder how good are these kids? I wonder what accompllishments do they have unde their belts. Bad writing my xxx. 🙂
I am rooting for all the cast.The cast and director is good to me.But am slightly apprehensive of the writer but I hope he can bring the same excellence from his movies to the drama and improve from the writing in “Remember” and write the female leads well.
and lol at “LJK quest to cosplay every profession”.so funny.Maybe next year or if we can be lucky to get two dramas this year.He will play a doctor?.He already did a parody of himself playing different professions at one of his fanmeets.On a serious note, although he is still very much popular, he is also an established veteran actor now, so he can afford to relax, choose and play the roles that he wants to play and showcase his acting ability and growth.People like him, Ji Sung and Jang Hyuk just need to give us one drama/movie per year and that is all.
He looks so skinny! But maybe it is just his jawline? I am looking forward to this show too. Not really for the law aspect, mostly for the pairing of the leads.
As of today 45 days till premiere on the May 12th and yesterday’s release of the script reading pics taken February 28 th was a damn god send. A lot of LJK + SYJ fans are so hyped up for this drama and the fan art is of the chart. SYJ movie with Kim Jung Hyun is due to release this Saturday 31st March. So she is busy busy busy. Funny though some LJK fans are demanding MLSHR season 2 and are hoping that IU has a cameo in LL . Like seriously? Why would you even ask? She’s doing well in My Ahjussi with her 3 old men and SYJ has this locked in with LJK hook line and sinker. I am hanging out for this ONE just to see LJK and SYJ in one frame together they could be speaking Klingon and I wouldn’t give a rats behind. This will be the ultimate OTP for K Drama 2018. Bless them ❤️
Some people need to let it go already. Are they like teenagers?? They always manage to flock in any news of his upcoming dramas and whine about that stupid second season. How rude and disrespectful can you be? JG is an actor not a personal toy to satisfy their fantasies by playing only that one character they seem obsessed with. I mean I loved Wang So and his portrayal was just out of this world, but that show is over and done. Let it die! They all moved on. Don’t get me started on this need to always link IU and JG together like they are each other’s limbs lol You don’t see people clamoring for LBY to guest star in Ji Sung’ s dramas or movies when those two are actually married in real life lol smh
PD Kim Jin Min will be direct this. At least the directing would solid….
Good news nevertheless! Can’t wait!
Seo Ye Ji! Yes, looking forward to her new drama with LJK.
Like her in Save Me, she did well there.
Hopefully this will be another good drama for her.
Can’t wait for May to come, miss him alot. As JG fans know, we cant get enough of him?. Lucky those who will get to see him on April,7..wish I can go too?
I hope lady luck will be on his side this year. He deserve just all of the best!
Honestly watching for Seo Ye Ji although I do like the rest of the cast. It’s great that she’s finally getting recognition so I really want Lawless Lawyer to continue that upward trajectory for her. Hoping to high heaven that the writing gives justice to the female characters. I’m cautiously optimistic seeing how there are a good number of female characters.
He always makes bad drama choices; from the writing, to the PD, to his co-stars…..I really hope he hits the jackpot this time. I think it got worse due to his appearance in the Candy variety show. He needs to put on some weight he’s too skinny now.
What a load of crap? What’s your basis? Just because it wasn’t a rom-com?
Just because you don’t like his choices of drama does not mean it’s bad drama. You may love Goblin but to me that was a terrible drama esp in the production aspect and storyline.
Lol another bad writing comment. Another load of crap. Think dramabeans patrons have come to Koala. 🙂
Not expecting much.. hopefully the writing is good
Define good writing.
