Ji-hoon has brought some mysterious proof to court to win the case and set the adorable ex-pickpocketer absolutely free to be a very good father once again. Mari enables it to be submitted as proof, mainly because she does not see the worth in it. Certainly, it is that quite lack of intuition that loses her the case.

What Ji-hoon has brought in the lunchbox is a massive fat practically nothing. That practically nothing, he says, is the quantity of proof they have to prove his client is guilty. And adding onto that, he has the pickpocket pinch a wallet in the middle of the courtroom to illustrate oh-so-successfully that this guy is so very good he would by no means get caught in the act.

Ji-hoon wins the case, and it is a further really feel-very good moment for our innocent family members who gets a new get started on life, as properly as every person in the Ji-hoon crowd: they saved a further individual whom the law was discriminating against, and they did it through an unconventional approach that was a smaller dunk, thanks to Ji-hoon realizing how to relate to a jury.

Certainly, there was somebody in the courtroom who was quite impressed by Ji-hoon’s abilities: it is LAWYER BAEK HYUN-MO (Lee Deok-hwa, in a further effective function with a further troublesome grandchild to sort out — sans the sheet masks and drama-watching).

Lawyer Baek is really Mari’s grandfather… and the head of the ultra prestigious Baek Law Firm exactly where Mari is destined to land. Except not but. Grandpa says she ought to intern for two months with a specific other law firm first… and confident sufficient it is Ji-hoon’s ramshackle practice.

This is a super entertaining improvement, mainly because it shows that Grandpa knows what it requires to be a actually very good lawyer (not just book learnin’), and he desires his granddaughter to discover that quite crucial lesson. But she has a mini tantrum as an alternative, which we sort of count on?

Ji-hoon does not want to take Mari on any far more than she desires to be there — and Mari interrupts a hilarious operating gag of Ji-hoon and Moo-jang routinely ducking their scary ajumma landlord mainly because they’re late on the rent (once again).

The entertaining of this entire interlude, of course, is the teasing and jokes — Ji-hoon’s deadpan humor and Mari’s prissy outrage. But she’s quickly offered a likelihood to prove herself (ish) when the landlady tends to make her look (1,000 won in tow) and asks for Ji-hoon’s legal help in sorting out some hyper-technical guidelines for Go-Quit. Ji-hoon plays a good charade, and gets Mari to join in — it is her initially mini trial by fire.

A knock on Ji-hoon’s door 1 afternoon leads to his subsequent case, of sorts. He sees no 1 when he opens the door and has to double back to see the small boy that is there on behalf of his grandfather. Stated grandfather is a safety guard at an apartment complicated, and he’s routinely pushed about and bullied by a true jerk of a resident. The old man is treated like his private slave — and then blamed for every thing that goes incorrect, most not too long ago a scratch on the bumper of his valuable automobile.

Properly, Ji-hoon has an fascinating way of dealing with that. He runs a hand cart at top rated speed into the man’s automobile by “accident” and knocks the complete bumper off. Ji-hoon then walks off with a cheeky grin, telling Mari if she can resolve that mess, he’s prepared to take her on.

Properly, we knew from the promos that Mari was going to have to intern with Ji-hoon, but I like the way the drama set up their characters and antagonism prior to that. This show is actually all about the kooky moments and hijinks, so I hope that can continue — and enhance — when Mari joins our crew.

I didn’t laugh very as considerably in the second episode as I did in the initially, but I was glad to see the show maintaining up the silly humor, from Ji-hoon hiding out with the ajummas, to messing with a curling iron at his desk. It is only the initially week, but I’m hoping the drama will dial up the entertaining, although also providing us a bit far more detail on Ji-hoon’s character. Appropriate now all we’ve got is the massive jar exactly where he meaningfully shops his 1,000 won charges. But with Choi Dae-hoon, Lee Chung-ah and far more to join the scene nonetheless, I assume there’s a lot far more plot (and backstory) headed our way.
