This article is a preview of the Viki K-drama The Law Cafe season 1, episodes 1 & 2, which includes details of the release date and where to watch online.
Korean legal dramas seem to be experiencing something of a boom at the moment and after the colossal success of Extraordinary Attorney Woo over on Netflix, the appetite for the genre seems more voracious than ever. With that in mind, The Law Cafe seems virtually guaranteed to be a winner for streaming service Viki, combining that legal framework with elements such as comedy and romance as a lawyer becomes a tenant of a former lawyer turned building manager. Here’s the official synopsis courtesy of Viki, via MyDramaList:
Jung Ho, Yu Ri, Se Yeon, and Jin Ki have been friends for 17 years since Seoyeon High. Jung Ho is a landlord who used to be called the Monster Genius of the prosecution. Despite his clumsiness, he is a cool guy with a mysterious charm.
Yu Ri is an eccentric lawyer who won the past Miss Korea contest with her outstanding looks. Her hot-tempered characteristic that cannot stand injustice leads her to quit her firm and start a law cafe of her own. When she goes to see her landlord for the contract, she finds out that he is her old friend Jung Ho. From that point, a crazy relationship that develops from friendship to love begins.
