1 Dollar Lawyer: Episode 11

With our penultimate episode comes a wake-up get in touch with for our 1 dollar lawyer, and a rift in the group that he didn’t know how considerably he required.


One Dollar Lawyer: Episode 11

Just before we get to the really tense steak knife moment, we back up a bit in time to see Moo-jang inserting himself into Ji-hoon’s investigation. He requires benefit of getting mistaken for a waiter (which was lol) to do some sneaking about. In between Moo-jang’s spying and Mari’s chaebol connections, we study that this evil dude is CHA MIN-CHEOL, after secretary of the JQ Group chairman, and now the CEO of Cayman Fund, which essentially screams revenue laundering scheme.

Ji-hoon, we study, dropped the knife, and rather went to the restroom to douse himself with cold water, as 1 does. But right after he reappears on the scene, we get the reveal of our large negative CEO (cameo by Joo Seok-tae who is essentially the eternal creepy negative guy). Ji-hoon knows right away this is the man behind his father’s death, and bids one hundred million won for a dinner with him. Ji-hoon can confident throw revenue about when he wants to.

That evening, although, he stakes out Min-cheol, and they immediately go from heated stand-off to life or death fight. Min-cheol pulls a knife, but Ji-hoon has been hiding some seriously stellar combat abilities and he very easily overpowers Min-cheol. But when he gets the knife in his hands, Ji-hoon is this close to murdering the man. He’s only stopped by the memory of Joo-young, and he tells Min-cheol: the lady you murdered just saved your life.

For a brief scene, it was not only truly nicely shot, but it brought a huge wave of repercussions for Ji-hoon. He calls off his one hundred million won dinner, and then, in an odd moment in the workplace with Moo-jang and Mari, he requires off his sunglasses and puts them on her. The query he leaves her with is: what would you do if the particular person you most respected did an unthinkable evil. Mari thinks he’s referring to his father we know he’s referring to her grandfather. But it is the sunglasses exchange that is extra effective than the dialogue right here. It is as if Ji-hoon is providing her the protection and cover he himself required to get via a horrible time in his life.

With that, Ji-hoon disappears. Moo-jang and Mari go from outrage to depression, and whilst we watch them mourn his disappearance (and hold up the workplace and feed the fish), we study that a year has gone by.

The two speculate that probably Ji-hoon went to France because his French was so great, and confident adequate we see him reading a book in a cafe and sipping an espresso. But it is all a fakeout of the show — and touché on that – Ji-hoon is nonetheless in Seoul. Sadly, the 1-year time jump wasn’t also the show playing with tropes. A year truly did go by, and we have no thought why.

We know really tiny about what Ji-hoon has been carrying out, but when he delivers cost-free legal solutions to a village neighborhood center, he gets some data on a JQ Group pharmaceutical case, and he’s pulled back into the action as simple as 1-two-3. Cue the theme music and the curling iron.

Winning Moo-jang and Mari back more than, although, is a diverse story completely. Mari spots him in the prosecution workplace and actually screams across the creating at him and later pummels him with a stunning bouquet. Moo-jang is no improved, operating up as if to hug his old boss, but punching him rather. It is all really funny, but these scenes rely heavily on sound effects to up the comedy, and without having any story behind it, I come across I’m not laughing at all.

The rest of the episode consists of Ji-hoon attempting to win his two persons more than once more — Moo-jang is simple, but Mari not so considerably (in spite of the tears she’s been crying, and the profitable but in the end unsatisfying year she’s spent functioning for Baek Law Firm).

In a uncommon moment of honesty, Ji-hoon tells the two of them what it is that produced him leave: he came dangerously close to murdering the man who killed Joo-young. As anticipated, our ragtag crew nonetheless appreciate and have an understanding of our 1 dollar lawyer, and they vow to assistance him punish Min-cheol and co. appropriately (i.e., legally). So essentially, we finish this episode precisely exactly where we began it. Which leads to my short rant.

Why did we even will need this episode? 1 can argue we required it extra than the vehicle depot episode, but at the finish of the day, it feels like the assistant writers have been like: Okay, we have two episodes left to finish this issue all of a sudden. How are we going to make the audience really feel the gravity of the final showdown when we’ve largely made use of levity to get our characters to this point? This is how, in my head, they decided on the time jump — absolutely nothing like a time jump to give gravity and weight (or is that wait) to an significant plot point.

And subsequent week, it appears, there’s a heck of a lot to sweep up: the indictment of Min-cheol the reveal of the truth about the death of Joo-young and Ji-hoon’s father the takedown of JQ Group’s evil CEO the hopefully-not-a-twist that Grandpa Baek is also evil Mari’s reaction to her grandfather’s involvement and then what ever the heck they’re going to do with Min-hyuk, his father, and Prosecutor Na. I want to leave this drama a happy client, but I’m a tiny doubtful they’ll be in a position to wrap all that up in an hour’s time. This may be one more drama to add to the annals of: fell apart due to final minute script rewrites.
