Actress Jung Ryeo-won said she nearly passed on her role as a lawyer in her new legal drama.
At a press conference on Wednesday for Disney+'s original series "May It Please the Court," Jung said she initially intended to refuse the role, as she had played similar characters in two previous legal dramas, "Witch at Court" in 2017 and "Diary of a Prosecutor" in 2019.
"When I saw the title implying a legal series, my initial reaction was to decline the offer. But I found I couldn't stop reading the script and eventually accepted the role, realizing that I am really fond of this kind of story. I enjoyed my new lawyer character very much," Jung said.
The legal drama revolves around a cold-blooded and highly successful lawyer who teams up with an oddball fellow lawyer on court-appointed cases.
The new series began airing on Disney+ on Wednesday.
