While media reports suggest that Lee Se Young has been offered the role of a lead female in the drama helmed by KBS 2TV, on the other hand, Lee Seung Gi is ‘positively’ reviewing the role of the male lead.
If both the actors accept the law-romance drama, Lee Seung Gi will be seen as Jung Ho, a landlord and a school friend of Kim Yu Ri aka Lee Se Young. Based on a web novel, the story focuses on Law Café, functioning as both a law firm and a café, opened by Kim Yu Ri who is a lawyer and a former Miss Korea contestant. The drama takes a turn when she decides to quit her job at a large law firm and opens up a café, only to find out that the owner of the building is her school friend Jung Ho who was once a prosecutor.
‘Love According To The Law’ is directed by Lee Eun Jin and backed by Jidam Media in collaboration. It is scheduled to air in the second half of this year.
On the work front, Lee Seung Gi was last seen in ‘Mouse’ and currently juggling multiple variety shows, including ‘Master in the House, ‘Golf Battle: Birdie Buddies, ‘Sing Again 2’ and ‘Adults’ Secret Counseling Center-Circle House.’
Coming back to Lee Se Young, the actress recently appeared in ‘The Red Sleeve’.
