‘Law school’ or ‘ 로스쿨’ in Korean has started airing its episodes on April 14, 2021, and it has aired two episodes. It is going to air till June 3, 2021, on days Wednesday and Thursday. Even though it has aired only two episodes, it has grabbed the viewer’s attention. The audience is totally into it from the starting to the ending of each episode. However, It is not as vivid and cruel as ‘criminal minds’ and not as funny as ‘psychopath diaries’, but the heart racing and intense as any thriller drama could be. So, What is all the hype about?
The drama ‘Law School’, displays the mystery of a severe incident in a prestigious law school. A tough professor and his aspiring law students are investigating the crime of a renowned professor. Professor Seo Byung Ju (Ahn Nae- Sang) goes to his office for a break but later is found dead. Although a suicide note was found, something tells Yang Joon-hoon (Kim Myung-min), the tough professor, that it is not a suicide. The main cast consists of Yang Joon-hoon and his top students Kang Sol A (Ryu Hye-young), a first-year student who entered the school through a scholarship, and Haa Joon-Hwi(Kim Bum), also a first-year student known for getting top grades. The main cast also consists of another professor Kim Eun-Sook, a professor Yang Joon-hoon relies on.

If you are a fan of crime and thriller, this kdrama is made just for you. The drama is set up into two storylines- Number one, Yang trying to find the real murderer of Seo, while he has been arrested, his loyal students try to find whether Yang really murdered Seo or did someone else and the reason behind Seo’s murder.

The option we would be opting for is streaming it. With the star-studded cast and amazing storyline, fans are already into the kdrama.
