Joe Deulho used to be a star prosecutor but ended up losing everything because he could not ignore the corruption at his workplace. Instead of giving up, he rebuilt his life by becoming a lawyer who fights for the poor.

Characters

Joe Deulho (cast. Park Shin Yang)

Fame and popularity made him a star lawyer with frequent TV appearances, but his excessive self-confidence brought a disaster to an innocent victim. From this incident, he got panic disorder and has been wasting his time away for over a year playing online games and betting on sports. One day, Yun Somi, who is the daughter of Yun Jeonggeon, the investigator who worked with him in his early years as a public prosecutor, visits him. Somi, who is autistic, claims that her father went missing and asks him for help. He does not have the heart to turn a blind eye to her and helps her. The more he digs into his former colleague's disappearance, he learns that there is a huge enemy behind it all.

Lee Jagyeong (cast. Ko Hyun Jung)

She is the favorite of President Guk Hyeonil of Gukil Group and the head of the Office of Planning & Coordination with a tight grip on the entire group. Although she is not related to the Guk family by blood, she is in the president's confidence more than his own children. Though an orphan, she was selected by President Guk and was raised liked his foster daughter. Elegance is in her nature, and she is an outstanding businesswoman. However, she seems to lack human emotions. She bosses around the political and financial worlds, the press, and even the nation's judiciary. She is not hesitant to commit murder if it's what it takes to get rid of obstacles in her way. She is about to attain her ambition that she has cherished for 30 years.

Yoon Somi (cast. Lee Min Ji)

She is the daughter of Yoon Jeonggeon, the investigator who worked with young prosecutor Joe Deulho. She had autism as a child, but her father's desperate efforts to cure her worked, and now she only has a minor aftereffect called Asperger Syndrome. She saw prosecutor Joe Deulho as her role model and dreamed of becoming a lawyer. She finally manages to graduate from law school, but no law firm is willing to hire Somi who used suffer from autism. When she has nowhere to go after her father's disappearance, Joe Deulho takes her in. She makes a great pair with Joe Deulho at court, but she has zero abilities in everyday life skills. The order of words in her sentence is awkward. She combines forces with Joe Deulho to fight against the omnipotent evil.

Guk Hyeonil (cast. Byun Hee Bong)

Under the military regime in the 80s, he capitalized on government funding as part of the social purification project and successfully cultivated Gukil Group, what is now a massive conglomerate. He is very devoted to philanthropic activities. On the surface, he seems like a man of good character, but he is actually hiding an ugly past. Even though he has three children, he trusts Lee Jagyeong way more in both business and private life. Without his noble packaging, he is a greedy, cruel, and heartless man with multiple personalities.
