“Lawless Lawyer” Lee Joon-Gi exudes charm with a different character from his previous characters (featuring Seo Yea-ji)
The first behind-the-scenes look of Lee Joon-gi and Seo Yea-ji has been unveiled.
The producers behind tvN’s upcoming weekend drama “Lawless Lawyer” (directed by Kim Jin-min, written by Yoon Hyun-ho) released the first on-set behind-the-scenes of Lee Joon-gi and Seo Yea-ji through Naver TV.
Legal/action drama “Lawless Lawyer” tells the story of a lawless lawyer who initially uses his fists rather than the law but evolves into a true lawyer who uses the law to fight unchecked power. Lee Joon-gi plays ‘Bong Sang-pil,’ a gangster-turned-lawyer and expert in both law and violence, while Seo Yea-ji plays ‘Ha Jae-yi,’ a hotheaded lawyer who seems unable to control her aggressive impulses.
The unveiled behind-the-scenes video shows Lee Joon-gi and Seo Yea-ji preparing for the shoot in a tense atmosphere while generating strong chemistry and sweetness and having much fun on the set.
In the video, Lee Joon-gi displays his character as a truly lawless layer. He pulls off extremely difficult action scenes like jumping over a moving car without the help of a stunt double. He makes the rehearsal look like actual filming, grabbing viewer’s attention. Only when the cinematographer shouts ‘O.K.’ does Lee Joon-gi finally flash a smile; he gives off an aura as a professional and demonstrates his commitment to creating a perfect scene.
He shares his determination and passion about the drama: “Through Bong Sang-pil, I prepared a lot and am working hard to show a different character from the characters I played before. I’m giving a lot of thought [about how to play it] and feeling worried too, but I will do my best until the very last day and work hard to make a fun, exciting drama for viewers.” His remarks make us look forward to how Bong Sang-pil will be portrayed in “Lawless Lawyer.”
Meanwhile, Seo Yea-ji’s ‘hotheaded lawyer’ Ha Jae-yi is overflowing with girl crush vibes. Despite the minor ankle and wrist injuries she got when bursting open the car door, she kept her bright smile on and seemed more concerned about co-star Lee Joon-gi.
The video shows how committed she is to building a partnership with Lee Joon-gi and focusing on every detail in the scene. It also hints at how deeply she is already immersed in her own character, raising our expectations for ‘Seo Yea-ji’s own Hae Jae-yi.’ With her eyes smiling directly at the camera, she helps lighten up the mood on set, indicating her easygoing personality.
“Lawless Lawyer” is a much-anticipated production and collaboration between Kim Jin-min, who boasted visual mastery in “Time Between Dog and Wolf,” “Pride and Prejudice,” and “Marriage Contract,” and Yoon Hyun-ho, who wrote movies “The Attorney” and “Confidential Assignment” and dramas “Remember – War of the Son.” It will premiere on May 12 (Saturday), 9 p.m. as the follow-up to “Live.”

Lee Joon Gi And Seo Ye Ji Nail Action Scenes As They Film Upcoming Drama “Lawless Lawyer”
On April 13, tvN’s upcoming drama “Lawless Lawyer” released a behind-the-scenes video of Lee Joon Gi and Seo Ye Ji.
“Lawless Lawyer” is a legal drama that follows the events a lawyer goes through as he attempts to fight against corrupt authorities. Lee Joon Gi plays the role of Bong Sang Pil, a lawyer who was formerly part of a gang, while Seo Ye Ji takes on the part of bold and somewhat reckless lawyer Ha Jae Yi.
In the released clip, Lee Joon Gi is filming action scenes that include difficult moves such as leaping over a car. Even though it’s early in the morning, the actor is full of energy and doesn’t lose his smile throughout the filming.
Seo Ye Ji is shown shooting a scene where she drives rapidly through a narrow alley. “I’m here for the first filming as Ha Jae Yi in ‘Lawless Lawyer’,” she says. “It’s so much fun.”
In the next scene, Seo Ye Ji is trying to get off her car while Lee Joon Gi is struggling in a fight against the car door. As she gets off, she falls and scratches her arms and legs. Lee Joon Gi immediately runs to her and asks her if she’s okay. Even as the staff tends to her, Ha Jae Yi laughs it off and turns her attention to Lee Joon Gi’s scene.
Lee Joon Gi then spends time jumping around on top of cars in a fierce chase. When the director gives him the okay, he breaks into a relieved smile. “I’ve been trying and preparing hard to show you the character of Bong Sang Pil, who’s different from other characters I’ve done so far,” he said. “I’m concerned and worry about it a lot. But I’ll do my best to make you enjoy it until the end, so it would be great if you would give me lots of support and look forward to the drama.”
“Lawless Lawyer” premieres on May 12 at 9 p.m. KST as a follow-up to “Live.”
