    Oh wow !! This drama has got my attention.

    So far, finished ep 1 and 2 only. Look forward to coming episodes.

    The character Oh Soo Jae puzzles me. She is brilliant and sharp I agree. But why is she behaving the way she does? She is so obnoxious and mighty arrogant. She is terrible. Why is she fighting everybody and everything, all the time, even during her private “me” time ? As if she’s a cornered animal? Oh gosh, how did she become what she is now? Why didn’t she turn to look back to check where she was heading? Hope there will be a backstory for viewers to find out.

    I believe she made a mistake, when she declared that she was TK Law Firm and TKLF was her. Her bridled arrogance blinded her and as a result she lost it all … Plus another mistake of hers, she was a monster. There was not even a touch of warmth or empathy in her handling of her cases. She slaughtered her way through.

    (Note : what happens to Oh Soo Jae’s removal does happen in real life too, not only in k-dramas. It happens when “too much” becomes dangerous and a threat – like in the case of this drama, to TKLF and Founder).

    Its too early yet to know what actually the drama is about … but I would GUESS from the title “Why Me”, that its the one question that will save Oh Soo Jae’s destructive course. The question will guide her to eventually change and find humanity within herself again. That humanity will make her, and that it means more than the glass ceiling that she wanted to reach.

    The above notes are just my guess only. I might be wrong. Please correct. Thanks.

    Have a good day !

  5. 5 : Megan Says:

    Just came from watching ep3 or 4 (?) last night.

    Ahaaa … now that I’ve got some more info, I am beginning to get a better picture of the whole setup surronding Oh SooJae. I think I understand her better now, and why she’s such a hard and tough nut … its cuz she practically lives in a gladiators’ arena. Kill or be killed. To make matters worse, her own family members are nothing but parasites, trying to take advantage of her. They are burdensome.

    Oh SooJae, I understand you better now. Fighting !!

    Finally, the drama is beginning to make its story clearer. I gather its basically about a roguish law firm, with a crooked and greedy leadership who under estimated the brilliance and ambition of a young female partner, who refused to be surpressed, that eventually caused its collapse. Plus everything else that happens in between that make up the story etc etc.

    I am now glad that OSJ is a formidable force. She might be relegated to teaching law at the university, but the rogue head of TK Law Firm is still trying to control and make use of her brillance as a lawyer to his advantage. She is aware of this, but is smart enough to build a buffer to protect herself along the way. Secretly, I think she is working towards her goal to take over TKLF eventually. Haha !!

    Meanwhile, I think, this point in time is the beginning of the eventual downfall of Choi Tae Kook, CEO of TKFL, a rogue. The catalyst of the downfall might be due to a dubious dealing in a company called Haesu-Bio which the CEO tried to push off to an unsuspecting buyer. We will know more as the story runs.

    To make matters worst for TKFL, at the same time, there is a murder case of a social escort that is tied to it, for which OSJ was initially a suspect. Well, trust OSJ not to take advantage of this incident to add to her arsenal of w.o.d. on Choi Tae Kook ?? She and a handpicked bunch of her law students are busy secretly investigating the death. Obviously, someone in TKFL killed SoYoung (the dead victim).

    Just jotting down my assumptions here. Its a long read. I might be wrong on many points. Please correct. Thanks.

    Have a nice weekend.

  6. 6 : Megan Says:

    One more point to add :

    The healing of Oh SooJae. There is this law student Gong Chan whose admirstion of OSJ at first which then turned to love. I think he will be the healer of the hurts and traumas she’s been through in her life ……. (sorry lah … I am lost for words to describe the situation. Hope you know what it is … ayuh ….. I am not good at romantic stuff yeah !! ). Hehe !! 😁☺
