Characters
Kim So Yeon as Ma Hye-ri

Ma hye ri Ma Hye Ri is the Junior Prosecutor, Midland Prosecutor’s Office and the Daughter of CEO Ma of Dongbang [Eastern] Architecture.She has beauty like an actress’ and a body that would make a movie star cry! Ma Hye Ri passed the Bar Exam in one shot and graduated from the Judicial Research and Training Institute with top grades.

Raised as the precious daughter of an affluent family, under her mother’s maintenance, she studied as her mother told her to, and got good grades without any goals or personal worries, eventually entering a law college. She has an IQ of 168, plus excellent concentration and memorization skills.

Her hobbies are shopping, skincare, and body maintenance. She knows when all the new name-brand lines come out, and if she sees pretty clothes or accessories, she absolutely has to buy them. At one point, she thought her calling was fashion and transferred to Fashion Design, but her father caught her; she had to return to law in order to avoid being kicked out of the house.

Between her wealthy upbringing and hiring as a prosecutor, she has never had the chance to feel scared or altruistic, or to experience society.She has a simple, direct personality; she’d rather die than do something she doesn’t want to do. She can’t stand bothersome tasks, especially if they are physically tiring.

I utterly loved this girl! She was so funny and of course at times  I thought she was spoilt but I simply just wanted to be her. I like the actress playing her she did a great job. The character transformation of her character was really good.

I liked her personality quite a lot. She was really kind of innocent in some ways. She usually did say things that were on her mind and she never realised when she offended anyone due to the fact that she thought was she was saying was right.

Kim So Yeon is a good actress am actually watching another drama with her in it right now called Dr Champ where she is also really skilled at showing emotions and being her character

Park Si-Hoo as Seo In-woo

Principal Attorney, Haneul [“sky/or heaven”] Law Offices

Haneul has an unusual resume, he graduated from an American university, then came to Korea to take the bar exam and became a lawyer. Runs the law firm “Haneul,” which houses outsiders who can’t deal with the realities of the legal profession in Korea. There are many rumors about his origins, but no one really knows anything about his past.

He has a sharp appearance, sophisticated style. Recklessly confident and appropriately pompous. But sometimes, he is a trashy delinquent, and sneaky as well, but not so much that people hate him for it. His cute playfulness and laugh are his trademarks! It takes a lot of get him angry.

On the outside, he is brilliant and fair…but he has a chilling dark side.He is tenacious, meticulous, and good at reading people’s minds. He stops at nothing to win his clients’ lawsuits, and is not above blackmailing people who deserve it. On the other hand, he is tender and warm toward innocent underdogs. He acts as legal aid or pro bono attorney on behalf of the powerless.

A man whose personality changes like a chameleon. Just why does In-woo hide his true self and hang around Hye-ri?

Got to say I did not like him at first so much. Did not really think he was the main character but as the episodes progressed on I have to say he had a really good chemistry with Ma Hye Ri. He was a really cool character and his smile was so cute!

  • Han Jung Soo as Yoon Se-joon

Chief Prosecutor of Ma Hye-ri’s office

Tall and handsome, this attractive man is called “The Gregory Peck of the Prosecutor World.” He is capable, cold, cynical, and harsh.

He lost his wife to cancer 3 years ago, and has a 7-year-old daughter. He is more traumatized by his wife’s death than anyone could imagine. While he worked like a crazy man at the prosecutorial profession, which he found fun due to his boiling-hot sense of justice and passion, his wife supported him quietly. She allowed her disease to progress and he couldn’t even be at her deathbed.

He is grateful to Prosecutor Jin and her mother for raising his daughter safely, but he hasn’t noticed Jin Jeong-seon’s feelings for him. He treasures her as a trustworthy junior colleague.He is severe and cold with Hye-ri, who looks a lot like his wife but doesn’t act like her at all. However, he also understands Hye-ri who, lacks passion for prosecution and just treats it as like another job.

When everyone gives up on Hye-ri, he gives her an opportunity. When that makes Hye-ri fall for him and she makes advances, he resists. But as she charges him uncalculatingly, there comes a time when he accepts her feelings.

However…the deeper his relationship with Hye-ri becomes, the more regret he feels about Jin Jeong-seon. And watching Hye-ri suffer over In-woo, he learns a truth that he wasn’t able to comprehend before…

Never found a man with a moustache handsome but Jung soo was very handsome. I did like what a brooding character he was and at first I really wanted Ma hye ri to end up with him until  I realised how much Jun Jeong Seon liked him. He was really open with his daughter and besides that he was very quite with everyone else.

  • Choi Song Hyun as Jin Jeong-seon

Hye-ri’s senior colleague

Ma Hye-ri’s natural enemy! Hot-blooded prosecutor who lives by justice and dies by justice.

She runs around as though she’ll save the world all by herself. Unbeknownst to her, this has earned her the nickname “Eagle Noona [older sister]” as well as “Double Blade” — because her speech cuts like a knife.

She became a prosecutor because her father, having lost all of his money to a con, died of a nervous disorder brought on by rage. Because of her work, she has never dreamed of marriage. Sometimes, when corruption in the prosecutor world comes to light, or a fellow prosecutor’s misconduct is revealed, she fumes alone, drinking like a fish.

But when Ma Hye-ri, flaunting her feminine scent, comes on the scene. As if that aura weren’t enough, she points out things that are wrong with Jeong-seon’s appearance and even talks back?! A one-way ticket to Jeong-seon’s hit list.

No need for experience; that thing needs to be fired right away! Being a prosecutor when she is not at all prosecutor material…Jeong-seon will not accept this.Besides…Hye-ri shamelessly makes moves on Yoon Se-joon, the object of Jeong-seon’s secret affection, and steals him away little by little…Jeong-seon, who has no dating experience, is about to die because of Hye-ri.

All she’s done is admire Yoon Se-joon from afar. She doesn’t know what to do except wait for his wounds to heal. She half-forces her mother, using threats and pleas, to baby-sit Yoon’s daughter Bin, and looks after Bin providently.

She’s inept at expressing emotions, as well as bumbling, timid, and naively unaware of social norms. When will she finally be able to express her feelings for Se-joon…

Jin Jeong-seon was one of those characters that sometimes fades to the background because of Ma Hye Ri flamboyant style. She is one of those girls who keeps everything inside and shows this really terrifying women. I really liked her. She was a really nice person who did care a lot about everyone and her crush on Yoon Se-joon was really cute.

  • Park Jung Ah as Jenny Ahn

Jenny is an  International lawyer age 29 and is  In-woo’s friend.

She is Korean, but was adopted into the U.S. as an infant. Has extraordinary endurance and courage from having to live as an Asian in American society. Met In-woo when he came to live with an adoptive father and enrolled in her middle school.

The day she found out about In-woo’s heartbreak, which was even deeper than her own heartbreak over being abandoned by her biological parents, she held out her hand to him: “I’ll be your sister…” So they became like brother and sister, like family. When they got into a fight with some Mexicans because of racism issues, they defended each other to the death. She came to love In-woo, but she doesn’t express it because she’s afraid that it’ll ruin their sibling-like bond.

When In-woo decides to leave for Korea to do the work that he’s dreamed of all his life, she follows In-woo to help him.

Did like this girl but I think she was more of a sidekick of In Woo. Very pretty as well and I liked how she confused Ma Hye Ri

Review

I really enjoyed this drama a lot. So much that I finished it in two days. I downloaded all the episodes as fast as I could. Imagine Legally Blond but with more depth in the story.  It may looked like a drama that is not that serious and just a plain comedy and Romance but in reality it was much more then that. The drama was pretty serious because the characters were really interesting and had a lot of background story regarding them that made them good characters.

I have to be honest I actually tried to watch the first episode twice. The first episode was very confusing and I could not get into it so much. Later on after I read the storyline and I saw the lovely clothes the main lead was wearing I forced myself to watch it again. I have to say I did not regret it. I utterly fell in love with this drama. It had such a good storyline that kept me interested and hooked on to the drama. It was not some cliché romance story certain scenes really surprised me and at moments I was saying to myself ” Oh my god I cant believe that just happened!”

Ma Hye Ri at first is really not a likeable character I have to warn you she will annoy the hell out of you. She is really spoilt and very snobbish. But slowly you will start to fall for her and really liked her. Her walking closet was to dye for, her shoes were to kill for and her clothes were to steal for. Her hair was a complete other story, I really disliked it but in some way that messy look kind of suited her. It showed more of her clothes and style off. I liked her and her best friends style. Completely classy.

The romantic scenes between the main character were so cute! I was usually doing a girly sequels because of how cute they were together.

Overall this drama was really entertaining and after you finish you will go around looking for something just like it. Don’t let the first episode or anything else put you off this drama. Its really worth a watch. Its entertaining and yo will get very addicted to it. The storyline was really good and the director did a great job of the light and making the scenes look right for the atmosphere. Soft for the romantic scenes and dark for the dramatic ones.  The OST also matched the drama really will. An awesome drama with great leads and storyline.
