Recently, Kim Beom’s portrayal of a complicated but endearing villain in the series Tale of the Nine Tailed earned him a lot of love and recognition.

Ryu Hye-young plays Kang Sol A who comes from a low-income family and struggles amongst the fierce competition at law school. The actress debuted in 2007 and mostly acted in independent films until she had her breakout role in Reply 1988. Her character in that series was a brainy student who hid her political activism from her family. While both characters are intelligent, her Law School character is a bit more bumbly and less rational. Kang Sol A definitely grows on you as we see her good intentions and sacrificial mindset.
Lee Su-kyoung portrays Kang Sol B who faces extreme pressure from her mother to be the best and eventually become a judge. The actress debuted in 2012 and is one of the youngest actors in the Law School cast. She previously portrayed an airport security task force team member in Where Stars Land. In that series, her character is a hard-working former judo athlete. Law School provides a more complex role with Kang Sol B who grapples with feeling inferior for the first time due to the strain of law school as well as an unrequited crush.
Lee David acts as Seo Ji-ho, a character whose life was ruined because of the law, and now seeks to use the very thing that brought his downfall for his gain. Lee David actually started out as a child actor and has been acting for almost two decades. You may recognise him from his roles in dramas like Save Me, Hotel Del Luna, and Itaewon Class. His lengthy list of roles include a police officer inexperienced in love, a serial killer, and more. Given the breadth of his acting experience, he’s been gaining more acknowledgement as he covers diverse roles.
Go Youn-jung portrays Jeon Ye-seul who gets into law school while her boyfriend fails much to his disappointment. Since she has brains and beauty, her character is receiving a lot of attention both within and outside of the drama. Go Youn-jung debuted in 2019 through He Is Psychometric and has acted in The School Nurse Files and Sweet Home since then. Prior to acting, she appeared as a cover model for a university life magazine.
Hyun Woo acts as Yu Seung-jae who is a former elite ob/gyn doctor who switches over to studying law. The actor is the eldest of the students, but he could pass for one of the youngest. Having debuted in 2008, Hyun Woo has been in a variety of movies and dramas including Pasta where he played a cute, curly-haired chef. His Law School character is shrouded in mystery, but there are some clues about his motivations. Yu Seung-jae is married, so it’ll be interesting to find out more about his wife and his secrets.
Kim Min-seok portrays Jo Ye-beom who is the only student character not a part of the study group. The actor shares the same name as some other actors and celebrities, so be careful not to confuse him with someone else. He’s acted in several dramas including Strongest Deliveryman, My Mister, and more. However, you probably remember him from Start-Up where his character Park Dong-cheon got his shirt stolen from Han Ji-pyeong a few times. It’ll be interesting to see how Jo Ye-beom continues to insert himself into the study group.
