Off all the law offices in Korea, why did he walk into hers?
Han Min Gook (Lee Sung Jae) is the CEO of Independent Financial Group and is considered a genius fund manager. He was married for six years to top actress Lee Ae Ri (Han Eun Jung), but Min Gook’s scandalous affairs led Ae Ri to divorce him.
After the divorce, Ae Ri suddenly hires hotshot attorney Byun Hyuk (Ryu Soo Young) and sues Min Gook for a $100 million settlement. Min Gook walks into the shabby small law office of Woo Lee Kyung (Lee Soo Kyung) and asks her to represent him in the high-profile case.
Lee Kyung is only six months into her new career as a lawyer and has no practical experience winning cases. But it turns out that she is Ae Ri’s high school best friend and Byun Hyuk’s ex-girlfriend. Lee Kyung used to work as a secretary in Byun Hyuk’s prestigious law firm, and the two fell in love and moved in together. But one day, without any explanation, Hyuk breaks up with her and moves to the United States, leaving only his law books behind in the apartment they shared. Heartbroken, Lee Kyung dedicates herself to studying the law books and passes the bar exam.
When Hyuk realizes that Lee Kyung is the opposing attorney in the case, he smugly thinks the case is a slam dunk. But will it be as easy as he thinks?
