Kim Bum Enters ‘Law School’

Cast: Kim Myung-min, Kim Bum, Ryu Hye-young
Release Date: April 14, 2021
Where to watch: Netflix

“Law School” is set in the prestigious law school of Hankuk University. The students and professors get entangled in the death of a former prosecutor and law school professor. Their mission is to find out the truth about his death.

The cherub-faced Kim Bum stars as Han Joon-hwi, a freshman law student who’s at the top of his class. Han Joon-hwi aspires to become a principled prosecutor. However, his character seems to be more than meets the eye, as he is described as someone with a secret.

Ryu Hye-young stars opposite Kim Bum. Many would remember her as Sung Bo-ra in “Reply 1988.” She plays the role of Kang Sol, who’s tenacious but barely makes it to law school. Meanwhile, Kim Myung-min is criminal law professor Yang Jong-hoon, who becomes one of the murder suspects.

“Law School” replaces “Sisyphus: the Myth” on the Wednesday-Thursday 9 p.m. slot of JTBC and will be streamed on Netflix.

Jung Il-woo has had a lot of luck in the past with historical dramas so it’s not surprising that he chose another “sageuk.” “Bossam: Steal the Fate” is set in the Joseon dynasty. Bossam refers to the custom wherein a bachelor kidnaps a widow and makes her his wife.

Jung Il-woo plays the role of Bau, who does bossam for a living. However, his fate changes when he mistakenly kidnaps the princess Soo-kyeong. Girls’ Generation’s Kwon Yuri plays the role of the princess.

“Bossam: Steal the Fate” is MBN’s 10th anniversary special drama and is slated for a weekend time slot.
