“Lawless Lawyer” Soars in Korean Drama Ratings for Finale

Lawless Lawyer Korean Drama - Lee Joon Gi, Seo Ye Ji, Choi Min Soo, Lee Hye Young

Lawless Lawyer starring Lee Joon Gi and Seo Ye Ji certainly had an impressive run in Nielsen drama ratings. It brought in fantastic numbers from its first week and just kept climbing higher as it went. And it was no different for its finale week.

It brought in 6.6% for episode 15 on Saturday and then saw a huge increase as it soared to 8.9% for episode 16 with its finale on Sunday. This was yet another series high for the drama. That’s a great note to end on too.

A huge congratulations to the entire cast and crew for such a successful drama and for all their hard work! And it was definitely wonderful getting to see Lee Joon Gi in a drama that yet again showcased his amazing talents. Congratulations!

It comes from the writer of Remember: War of the Son and the PD of The Liar and His Lover and Time Between Dog and Wolf.

Lawless Lawyer airs Saturday and Sunday on tvN.

      It’s been fun to see it do so well in ratings each week. Made it even harder to resist watching it until more eps had built up though! Now I’m 7 eps in and really liking it. Hope it goes well for you!


      • D says:

        Awesome great to hear it’s still as good with 7 episodes in. 😀😀😀

        Not sure if you noticed this but I can’t help but notice how unhealthily skinny LJK looks. Almost anorexic. I hope not but not looking good imo.

          He lost a bunch of weight a couple of years back for his role in Scarlet Heart, and I guess he decided not to gain it back. I do hope he eventually decides to gain it back though since I do think he looks extremely thin and I just want him to be healthy.

  3. I loved this drama. The ending was as spectacular as I was expecting, but it was still really a good drama. 9/10 stars for me.

    I’m almost done with Bride of Habaek. I might watch this next. Give it an 8-10 Kaye! =)

    On a side note, hopefully the next drama of Lee Joon Gi will be Scarlet Heart Part 2. IU is also done with My Ahjusshi. So I guess now is the right time for that Part 2. HAHAHA.

      Lawless Lawyer is pretty solid all around. And despite being a legal thriller, the romance is pretty nice too. Lee Joon Gi and Seo Ye Ji look fantastic together and have great chemistry 🙂

      Haha, I think we will be left dreaming about a Scarlet Heart 2. But I agree, it sure would be a good time to do one 🙂

    Hi Kay,
    This drama was a worth watching legal drama in a long time. Lee Joon Gi made a great come back with this one. However I can’t deny that his utterly lean physique did disappoint me to an extent. In Scarlet Heart he wore all those traditional clothes which didn’t highlight his lean structure much but the attorney’s suit did take my attention to his extremely lean physique. Btw, the leads were awesome and thanks to the amazing plotline which grabbed the viewers attention all through the series. Especially I fell in love with Ahn Oh Ju’s character…Hats Off to Choi Min Soo for his incredible acting skills. Negative roles are more challenging to play is what we’ve always known. But then he played it with such precision and ease.

    Though the later part of the series was quite guessable but the small twists just added so much more dimension to everything. Highly recommended one. I’m highly looking forward to your review and personal opinion on the same. Hope you’ve enjoyed the drama as well.

    Shrestha ☺️

      Hi Shrestha! Oh yes, Lawless Lawyer has been really great as far as legal type dramas go. I’m on ep 11 and planning to finish it in the next couple days. I agree about Lee Joon Gi. He still looks good of course, but he is so thin. You’re right, it wasn’t as noticeable in Scarlet Heart because of the clothes, but his suits made it really evident in this drama. I just hope he’s staying healthy. But his acting is as amazing as ever.

      And Choi Min Soo is incredible! He’s one of my favorite villain actors because he is just so intense and good and always brings something unique to his characters. I plan to have a review for the drama in the next week 🙂


      • Shrestha Sen says:

        Absolutely. His acting skills are amazing as always. And yes I too hope he is healthy and alright.

        Choi Min Soo became one of my favorite villan actors after this one. Words aren’t enough to describe his skills.
        Looking forward to the review.
