Likes: I don’t know about the US Suits as I never watched it, but this Korean counterpart is quite good. Although the concept is not original but there’s no denying that it is a good one. Every episode is actually a lawsuit! Seriously, I thought of the suits our hot lawyers here are wearing haha! But yes, a lawsuit and every lawsuit is an interesting one! So we had 16 smaller stories for that! Very satisfying!

I love the cast! I welcome back Jang Dong Gun with open arms! Whew, it’s been 6 years since A Gentleman’s Dignity. I’m glad this gentleman is back and even hotter than he was 6 years ago. Yes, he looked so fine in his suits, well-groomed hair and overall well-rested face. Very handsome hands down! Also the character suits him well – sneaky, competitive, fearless but remains charming and confident. I also love the way he was mentoring his junior. He’d got some tough love with a hint of bromance going on.

As to Park Hyung Sik, he did great as well. Although, next to Jang Dong Gun, he looked like a HS student, he still good looking, in a cute way :). He also looked good in suits and snickers with a backpack and riding a bike on the way to work. I love his well-defined character. Young, simple, makes a lot of mistakes but his brilliant mind compensates for everything. He wasn’t timid. He knew his talent and he was making the best of it. His conversations with his senior were always fun and entertaining.

The rest of the cast is awesome! Everyone did very well!  Honorable mention is Hong Da Ham, the secretary of Atty. Cheo and the annoying-bully-lawyer-turned-ally Chae Geun Shik! Brilliant acting!

The wardrobe in this drama is very well thought off. If you need inspiration for business attire, you can learn a lot from here. The men all looked dashing in their suits and the ladies as well. I specially love the bold colours in the ladies’ outfits.



I love the OST and I miss it since I’ve done watching so for all of you who love it too, here’s Suits OST. And that victory theme is sooo good. Uplifting and everyone always looks good everytime it plays. Here it is… Victory Theme Suits Korea.

It took me a while to warm up to the young loveteam but I ended up liking it anyhow. Was it the kiss? Perhaps. Two kisses was quite generous you know.

My favourite suits (because they sound sooo good and put me in deep thoughts, haha)…

  1. If you wish to swallow a demon, you must swallow its horns too.
  2. The moment you’ll be flying with wing called lie, you won’t be landing.

Ending was good. Though it felt like it will have season two, I’m already good without it. I love the last scene: hot men in a hot car!

Dislikes: Nothing worth mentioning.

My Rating: 8.5 stars! (10 as highest)
