19The Attorney (2014)
The 127-minute feature film was able to gain up to 82 billion won and become the second best-selling film in 2014. The Attorney was inspired from the 1981 Burim case, which is about the arrest of a number of students and teachers accused of being North Korean sympathizers by an authoritarian government. The film itself features the figure of Song Woo-suk, a tax law specialist lawyer. The only reason he wanted to become a lawyer was because of the money. Once upon a time, he saw many of the abuses, intimidation and frauds that occurred in Korean legal institutions. Woo-suk then decides to become a defender for those who are oppressed by the law.
