The courthouse romance begins in Nothing to Lose promos
Upcoming legal romance Nothing to Lose is just about ready to air, and in this teaser, we see the first meeting between the leads, an impulsive young woman who begins her career as a judge in order to discover the truth of her brother’s secret, who happens to lack book smarts, and the intelligent, principled judge who rejected using the power of his background to get to his position.
Park Eun-bin (Age of Youth 2) plays the judge who is so hot-headed that she throws off her robes in the middle of a trial because of her frustration at the criminal defendant. In the teaser, she runs into a door that Yeon Woo-jin (Seven Day Queen), the cool-headed judge, was opening. Perhaps the incident leaves her flustered, because when he takes her pulse later, he remarks that her heart is still beating very fast.
There’s a moment of embarrassment when he flings his robe back and she blurts out that he shouldn’t wear them that way, and he brushes her bangs aside saying that she’s the one wearing his robes.
She regrets her impulsive actions when she threw off her robes during the trial, and swears (sarcastically) that if she ever does that again, she’s his woman. Later in the library, he asks, “Did you mean that, about being my woman…?” But she just holds up a USB and says, “This is the beginning.”
Posters are also out, and in the one above, the copy reads: “We were all heading toward justice, but going the opposite way.” I refer the four-person poster below, which shows the central love quadrangle and says, “A survival drama in the turbulent courts of corrupt law officials.” Below that, we have the core cast of characters with Lee Deok-hwa (Suspicious Partner) at the defendant’s bench and Kim Hae-sook (Father Is Strange) in the chief judge’s seat. The caption says, “Two trials, one case.”
In some of stills below, we have Dongha (Suspicious Partner), who plays the “Mad Dog” from the Seoul Provincial Prosecutors’ Office’s violent crimes division. Similar to Yeon Woo-jin’s character, Dongha was also born into privilege. He’s cute and full of aegyo to the woman he loves, a good son to his mother, and a warm support for his friends, but in front of murderers he’s as harsh as a grim reaper, and in the courtroom, he’s strict and sharp about his work. Oooh, I’m digging this love triangle already.
Very excited for Nothing to Lose—this Wednesday-Thursday SBS drama will air starting this week on November 22, in While You Were Sleeping’s former time slot.
