A brand new K-drama is on its way to release. The South Korean drama series The Law Cafe brings two completely different personas and ties them with love. If you have just finished watching “Cafe Minamdang” and looking for more cafe-related series, be ready for The Law Cafe Premiere.
The Law Cafe is adapted from “Love According to Law”, the web novel created by the writer No Seung Ah and the illustrator Ri. The romance drama series is created under the direction of Lee Eun Jin and produced by the company Jidam Media Higround. The lead characters are Kim Jeong Ho, also known as Monster Genius, and a former prosecutor who is played by Lee Seung Gi.

Other cast members include Kim Nam Hee, Ahn Dong Goo, Jang Hye Jin, Kim Do Hoon, and Baek Hyun Joo.
The other drama series directed by Lee Eun Jin include “Waiting For Love” (2013), “Sassy, Go Go” (2015), and “Happy If You Died” (2018). Let’s see what Eun Jin brings to us through this romance drama. Based on the plot of the series, it is meant for viewers above the age of 15.
The Law Cafe Preview
Kim Jeong Ho introduces himself in the trailer as a webtoon writer even before calling himself the “Monster Genius”. The trailer makes it seem more of a comedic composition with some romantic angle to it. The Law Cafe shows us how the two characters with contrasting personalities become closer as they begin to develop romantic feelings toward each other. Kim Yu Ri, the female lead, is a beautiful and genius lawyer with a four-dimensional personality. She is portrayed with a quirky persona, a complete “weirdo”. Even Kim Jeong Ho points out her weirdness, “Kim Yu Ri is nuts”.
But does that stop him from falling for Yu Ri? Spoiler Alert: it doesn’t. As soon as he sees her, as the trailer shows, he’s swept off of his feet. Kim Jeong Ho is currently a building owner who used to be a prosecutor. Kim Yu Ri and Jeong Ho seem to be former lovers who meet again and fall for each other. Yu Ri opens a Law cafe after she quit the Law Firm Hwang & Gu. Now it is only in fate’s hands to decide what future Yu Ri and Jeong Ho will build. The K-drama series takes place in a cafe setting and features the renowned trope of friends-to-lovers.
