The Korean remake of popular US legal drama Suits interprets how lawyers represent their clients – family-run conglomerates, which are known as ‘chaebols’ and those who are less fortunate.
Rather than imitating the original, this series focuses on its characters’ charms. It revolves around the relationship between veteran lawyer Kang-seok and rookie associate Yeon-woo. It’s basically tailor made for Korean fans.
But if you’re a fan of the original series, you may well enjoy the Korean remake of Suits as much as its stateside version.
The story begins with Yeon-woo, played by Park Hyung Sik, who ends up in prison. Kang-Seok, played by Jang Dong Gun, represents as Yeon-woo’s lawyer. It stirs up curiosity about what exactly happened between the both of them.
They work together in Kang & Ham law firm after Kang-seok hires Yeon-woo as his rookie associate. In each episode, they use their wits and skills on handling different cases and difficult VVIP clients. As the scenarios intertwine, its storyline leads the viewers to understand the overall characters’ personas and personal agendas.
Just like the American series, this Korean version of Suits will revolve around the leading characters and how they resolve cases – including pro bono, divorce, and contract disputes – and acquire clients for their law firm.
