So Ji Sub In Doctor Lawyer
“Doctor Lawyer” is an upcoming South Korean heart-warming and purging drama. It will tell the story of an intelligent surgeon who later becomes a medical malpractice lawyer after losing his everything from a fabricated surgery and a prosecutor from the Medical Crimes Department who loses their only family and partner because of that surgery.
