    Two entertainer who could really act, not just the cute factor. These two are the real deal. Love Kang SOra and Park SHin Yang. I had a cruch on him in Lovers in Paris and I really like Sora’s acting Dream high 2, Misaeng, Warm and Cozy and Dr. Stranger.SHe acted better than the lead in Dr. Stranger. She will go far in her career. Fighting. GoddLuck to both and May the writers give us a really good story.

  10. 10 : Humy Says:

    No much like Kang Sora acting, look much mature than her ages. That’s why she always pairing with veteran actors in every dramas? Enough tired about politics and corruptions dramas, always the same plots.

  11. 11 : me ann Says:

    Welcome back PSY!

  12. 12 : OK OK OK Says:

    At ep 1 now.
    story quite exciting but too bad the cameramen seems amateur because the shots quite shaky, not stable which makes me giddy…..
    Hope there is improvement in coming episodes… 🙂

  27. 27 : MaxT Says:

    This is the most funniest law drama to date.

  28. 28 : Misu Tira Says:

    This is awesome drama! I like Park Shim Yang and his gang. He is a great actor.

    Thank you for the wonderful drama…………

  29. 29 : Nicey Says:

    Romance missing in this drama. Hope two main leads to end up together! Kang So Ra so pretty, i like her because not like other Korean actresses, she’s not too thin, love her figure!

  30. 30 : OK OK OK Says:

    ep 15 and ep 16 is really good because leading man Park Shin Yang finds all means to force the unscrupulous fat business man to stand trial — so funny and interesting. 😛

  31. 31 : Nicey Says:

    I stopped watching at Ep 15. I am disappointed because the actress portraying the Ex wife of Lawyer Jo has more scenes than the Main lead Actress Kang So Ra especially in the 2nd half or last eps. Kang So Ra is only a support here, i thought she is the leading lady, reason why i got interested. Also, this is purely a Legal or Law Drama and Comedy with Zero Romance.

  32. 32 : Gonjeng Says:

    What a shame .. Kang So Ra is just a filler in this drama

  33. 33 : Gonjeng Says:

    Funniest law drama LOL .. not even close . Watch Japanese drama Legal High and just forget this half baked comedy

  34. 34 : Chebal Says:

    Two big problems.
    1) Why was Kang So Ra so underused in the back half of the series? She was the female lead but was clearly pushed into the ensemble towards the end.
    2) Where did Kim Dong Joon disappear to? Part of Jo Deul Ho’s team, not even in the last few episodes.

  35. 35 : OK OK OK Says:

    Finished ep 20
    I like to watch belong its not long winded like Mr Black.
    Kang So Ra no romance with Park Shin Yang. Maybe the writer change its mind during filming.
    1 – age gap, not match?
    2 – family reunion after divorce can happen.
    3 – Kang So Ra more match with younger prosecutor Ryu Soo Young which they are together in the end episodes.
    4 – writer want to concentrate more on lawyer’s case. 😛

  36. 36 : MaxT Says:

    This is a very funny law drama to watch. I highly recommend it.

  37. 37 : Nicey Says:

    They did not even try putting romance or sweet moments in Kang So Ra and Park Shin Yang’s scenes not even one, how can we say they are not a match? Kang So Ra ended up only in the level of those supporting guys, the gang or loan shark they call, in short , she is only a Support here, and i got disappointed. How come they gave highlights to that woman (the one in the end who got preggy), too irrelevant.

    To those who would want to watch, this drama is purely Legal Comedy drama. No Romance or love line, as in zero in this drama.

  38. 38 : san Says:

    sad it had to end :'( hope this drama will get many awards 😉 well done (‘v’)V

  39. 39 : Jamm Says:

    Kang So Ra (korea) though different age, but same face like Hong Xiao Ling (taiwan)

  40. 40 : Pearl Says:

    This is just a pure law drama. I’m disappointed because I think this is a romance drama. No romantic scene, no kiss, no hug.

  41. 41 : Daisy Vega Says:

    Wow… I just finished seeing NEIGHBORHOOD LAWYER, JO DUEL HO! It was a great drama. The stellar cast did a phenomenal job. Park Shin Yang is so awesome in his role as the neighborhood attorney who defended disadvantaged folks or as his daughter called him “superman.” I do believe this is one of the best dramas I’ve seen in 2016. CONGRATULATIONS!

  42. 42 : kurayuzaki666 Says:

    It’s been bothering that Kim Dong-jun has been out from scenes of this K-drama since episode 13 if I’m correct. Is there anyone who knew the story behind his absence until the drama ended?

    Admin do you know why? Thanks

  43. 43 : admin Says:

    @kurayuzaki666 (42),

    According to the source from forum, he missing out on filming is because he’s busy with music, he just released his single.. just had his solo debut and probably is promoting on music shows.

  44. 44 : memoo Says:

    As expected Park Shin Yang really carries the show well. Contrary to what many has asked for I’m thankful the focus is not on romance. We have an overload of dramas out there that talk about nothing but romance. So its a refreshing change. Other topics are just as interesting and valid.
