The work is directed by director Park Soo Jin. She is the person behind a series of movie titles that have achieved “terrible” ratings on Korean screens such as “Romantic Doctor Kim” (2016), or When She Sleeps (2017)… before.
The film’s story revolves around the “up and down” journey of Oh Soo Jae (Seo Hyun Jin), a talented lawyer who was demoted to the position of teaching assistant at law school. With the help of college student Gong Chan (Hwang In Yeop) who has a crush on her, Oh Soo Jae gradually regains her spirit and plans to expose those who have harmed her.
1- Female lawyer aspiring to fame Oh Soo Jae
With her strength, Oh Soo Jae soon made many people jealous when she became the youngest lawyer at TK Law Firm – the leading famous law firm in Korea. She pursues lawsuits with burning enthusiasm, even willing to do everything she believes is right, to win for her clients.
An unexpected horrible incident broke the effort that Oh Soo Jae had built up over the past few years. This event immediately pushed the female lawyer to the bottom of her career. Accepting the job of a teaching assistant to make ends meet, she still tries to find ways to prove that she is trapped by bad guys.
Belonging to the independent and strong type of woman, the female lead Soo Jae attracts the audience thanks to her steadfast and decisive personality. The character is also curious because of its complexity and multidimensionality. Cold and proud as she roamed around, lawyer Oh suddenly became a quiet, suspicious, even harsh person with life after the downhill phase.
This role was assigned by director Park Soo Jin to “beautiful sister” Seo Hyun Jin. As an actress who won the prestigious Baeksang Award, her sharp beauty and diverse transformations bring an excellent incarnation in Why Her?.
2- The warm, optimistic student Gong Chan
Many years ago, Oh Soo Jae trusted and helped the young Gong Chan acquit in a murder that was falsely convicted. The above turning point prompted Gong Chan to study law. The deep impression on Soo Jae also made him take the benefactor as his ideal girlfriend.
Ironically, when they met again at law school, his admiration for her was quickly shaken by witnessing the “alienation” of the idol. However, the student still hopes his sincerity will make Oh Soo Jae change.
Different from the cold bad boy image in “True Beauty”, the role of a warm young man Gong Chan in the new movie promises a memorable makeover of Hwang In Yeop. Although he is always cheerful and friendly with everyone, few people know that his optimism can only be obtained after the journey to the end of the pain and finding salvation.
3- Psychological manipulation master Choi Ta Guk
With sharp eyes in contrast to a gentle smile, the president of the law firm Choi Ta Guk (Heo Joon Ho) is in the public eye as a majestic but attractive gentleman. To realize his desires, he is not afraid to cross the line between black and white, doing things that are illegal or even immoral.
In the past, it was this Chairman who actively approached Oh Soo Jae and made an irresistible offer to invite her to join his company. However, with a nature that likes to manipulate others, Choi Ta Guk always skillfully keeps the employees under control and then quietly dominates them, to make sure everything goes according to the schedule he outlined. Veteran Blue Dragon Award-winning star Heo Jun Ho revealed, “Choi Tae Guk is not just a one-sided villain. He possesses an interesting past as well as holds many shocking secrets, greatly influencing him. to the main storyline”.
