Let’s face it, nothing beats a man in a suit, arguing his case in a courtroom while holding that intense eye contact with the judge. Is it their suits or their way with words in the courtroom? We don’t know what it is but there’s something about lawyers that is incredibly sexy and appealing. Is it the way they dress or present themselves? Or is it their intellect and passion for justice?
Whatever it is, we’re here for it! Thankfully, there are plenty of hot K-drama lawyers to gush over. Check out some you’d be glad to have on your side of the law below.
1. Vincenzo Cassano — “Vincenzo”
This titular lawyer is unlike any K-drama lawyer you’ve seen before. First of all, he’s a Korean-Italian consigliere to an Italian mafia. Second, he means serious business and fights evil with evil. Lighting an entire vineyard on fire and dangling someone outside a window are everyday occurrences for the charismatic lawyer. Swathed in luxurious suits and fluent in Italian, Vincenzo Cassano (Song Joong-ki) is definitely the hottest lawyer of the moment.
2. Go Yeon-u — “Suits”
Go Yeon-u (Park Hyung-sik) is a dropout with a photographic memory who gets an opportunity to work at a prestigious law firm in “Suits”. Being a young genius doesn’t mean you’re immune to making mistakes, but Yeon-u has good intentions and aims to correct his mistakes. Having been through many hardships, he is eager to prove himself. With cute puppy dog charms, Yeon-u is one of the more adorable lawyers on this list.
3. Noh Ji-uk — “Suspicious Partner”
Noh Ji-uk (Ji Chang-wook) is a former prosecutor who ends up becoming an attorney due to having defended Eun Bong-hui in “Suspicious Partner”. He’s a man with a conscience who won’t condemn innocent people for the sake of his career. Struggling with various traumatic events, Ji-uk doesn’t easily open his heart to people. In his search for the truth, he overcomes his fears and finds love. Did we mention he’s also a great kisser?
4. Yoon Hee-jae — “Hyena”
Yoon Hee-jae (Ju Ji-hoon) is a successful lawyer who takes on cases for wealthy clients and also happens to be incredibly hot. Witty and quite a romanticist, Hee-jae oozes charisma. He’s hardworking and an endearing goofball underneath his top star lawyer persona. While he is morally ambiguous at times, you can’t help but fall for him as he’s more dorky than you would expect.
5. Kwon Jung-rok — “Touch Your Heart”
Kwon Jung-rok (Lee Dong-wook) is a seemingly cold-hearted, workaholic lawyer. He always wins his cases and is quite stoic. Having devoted most of his time to work, the prickly attorney lacks dating experience, so there are a lot of cute moments when he starts falling in love with his secretary. He leaves adorable heart-shaped post-it notes for her at her desk and makes considerate choices. He’s such a sweet, thoughtful, and handsome lawyer.
6. Go Tae-rim — Legal High
If you prefer your male leads a bit quirky, Go Tae-rim (Jin Goo) is the lawyer for you. With a 100% success rate, Tae-rim gets paid very well for his work. Winning is an obsession for the money-hungry lawyer, and he doesn’t handle losing very well. The eccentric lawyer begins to learn and change when he starts working with a lawyer who is his exact opposite. Showcasing many exaggerated expressions, Tae-rim is a zany but dapper lawyer you’d want on your side.
7. Kang Tae-uk — “Misty”
Kang Tae-uk (Ji Jin-hee) is a good-looking lawyer for those looking for a more mature lawyer. He is a former prosecutor who is now working as a public defender to help people who cannot afford an attorney. On top of his warm heart, he’s a sacrificial and faithful husband. Kang Tae-uk looks positively smoldering in his suits and coats. He isn’t perfect, but he will protect you as best he can.
