Cast of Lawless Lawyer Attend Wrap Party as Final Episode Brings in Series High Ratings Over 8%

It’s time to celebrate for the cast of hit tvN weekend drama Lawless Lawyer, wrapping up its two month run this past weekend with new series high in ratings. The final three episode brought in ratings of 7.089%, 6.618%, and 8.937%, building steadily and maintaining the momentum from a successful premiere episode ratings just over 5%. This is a huge win for the cast including Lee Jun Ki, Seo Ye Ji, Lee Hye Young, and Choi Min Soo, and it truly was a team effort from the four leads who acted their pants off through 16-episodes. The script was good enough but the acting and chemistry elevated this drama to great, a fun watch because it took time to create characters and backstories audiences could care about or connect it. The good guys were engaging to root for and the baddies so smart and diabolical it made the match of wills worthwhile. Congrats to Jun Ki for a much deserved hit drama and to everyone in the cast and crew for making something worth watching the whole way through. Continue reading
