On February 13, a representative of Namoo Actors told Sports Chosun, "Lee Jun Ki has received a casting offer for tvN's 'Lawless Lawyer' (literal title), however, nothing has been confirmed at this time. He is currently actively considering the role."
The initial role he received was of protagonist Bong Sang Pil, a lawyer who used to be part of a gang. He handles law books as if they were home appliance manuals and likes to act with his fist as opposed to going by the law. Looking at his character, there seems to be a lot of action-packed sequences, leading to further attention.
'Lawless Lawyer' follows the story of Bong Sang Pil who goes against the odds to avenge his dear mother. The script is written by Yoon Hyun Ho who also worked on drama 'Remember' and film 'Confidential Assignment'. Kim Jin Min PD will be in charge of production, who previously worked on 'Pride and Prejudice' and 'Time Between Dog and Wolf' which also starred Lee Jun Ki.
Stay tuned for further updates.
