One Thousand Won Lawyer: Plot
The show One Dollar Lawyer basically depicts the story of a lawyer, Cheon Ji Hun, who has extraordinary skills. But, strangely, he charges 1000 won, which is only about USD 1, as his attorney’s fees. He is one of the most successful lawyers around, yet his fees don’t make any sense. Cheon argues that the most expensive lawyers representing rich clients are intent on disrespecting the law.
On the other hand, Baek Ma-ri is a graduate of the Judicial Research and Training Institute. Confident and self-assured, Baek has been the Prosecutor’s Assistant since she graduated. She is also a lawyer with her grandfather’s renowned Baek Law Firm. Her life is perfectly fine, going smoothly, until she meets Cheon Ji Hun. Forced to work together, these two have a lot to learn about each other, law, and life!
One Thousand Won Lawyer: Episodes Recap
During a fierce court battle, Cheon Ji Hun shines again as a hero to the underprivileged. He is representing a client with four cases of pick-pocketing, and he does it really well. Meanwhile, Ma-ri becomes an assistant attorney at the law firm. Until she is told that she can only become an attorney if she survives working under Ji Hun. She is tasked to work as Ji Hun’s assistant for the next two months. She joins his defense and is shocked by how he behaves.
She doesn’t understand why he charges only 1000 won for his services. She can’t grasp why he is making a big deal out of a simple and straightforward case. Later, Ji Hun is asked to take on a parricide case. To assert innocence, he must prove that defendant’s father is alive, but how will he do that? It’s blatantly obvious to everyone around him that it’s a difficult case. Even Ma-ri and Sa Mu Jang advise he decline the request to handle this case. They argue the case is brutal, but Ji Hun has different ideas in his head.
The fourth episode ends with Min Jae’s mother who is stabbed to death. She is found by their house help the next morning. Ji Hun and Ma-ri, along with a few other people, work to solve this case. In the next episode, it will most likely follow what happens after they meet that strange man.
