Diary of a Prosecutor

Diary of a Prosecutor

Starring: Lee Sun-Kyun, Jung Ryeo-Won

I was not a big fan of courtroom dramas, until I watched Diary of a Prosecutor.

The story is about a team of people working as prosecutors in Jinyoung district office. It’s a drama that shows the daily mundane routine of overworked prosecutors often staying up late nights to handle the different cases handed over to them by the Police. However, how each one of them brings their personal flavour in those cases is the crux of the drama.

Lee Sun-Woong (Lee Sun-Kyun) is a carefree prosecutor, who lives all alone in the sleepy, boring town of Jinyoung while his wife and kid are in Seoul. However, he is hardworking and more importantly, he is fearless and doesn’t mind standing up to his superiors if he feels he is right. He also shares easy camaraderie with everyone in the team. Enters Cha Myung-Joo (Jung Ryeo-Won), she is another hardworking prosecutor who has been sent to Jinyoung office for going against her superior’s wishes. Myung-Joo’s style of working is quite different from the rest of the team, and she easily offends people with her arrogance.

All the characters appear real and relatable, they come with their own set of flaws. I like the wit and humour in the show, and also appreciate the way they have shown the technical aspects that go into solving cases. This is one show where there is no romance between the leads, and that is quite a refreshing change.

Lee Sun-Kyun as the fearless prosecutor is the heart of the show, while the headstrong Jung Ryeo-Won supports him equally in making this show into a great one. I was actually sad when the show came to an end, the prosecution team at Jinyoung had become such an integral part of my life for the 5 days it took me to finish the entire drama.

Watch Diary of a Prosecutor for Lee Sun-Kyun, he is amazing and it is an excellent drama!
