Jin Goo has been gaining traction for his work in "Legal High". In that drama, he plays the unstoppable lawyer Tae-rim who is constantly on the attack against enemy weaknesses. Yet he also deals with past trauma, and compensates with relaxation.
Around the office Tae-rim is a very different person, or so it would seem. He wears a casual turtleneck and even pajamas. This provides some obvious misdirection, causing friend and foe alike to inaccurately estimate Tae-rim's strengths and weaknesses.
But it's not just the costuming that gives Tae-rim this effect. Jin Goo's performance has been very strong, accurately reflecting Tae-rim's reputation as turnabout lawyer.
"Legal High" airs Friday and Saturday at 11 PM KST on JTBC. It is based on the Japanese drama of the same name.
