And now, according to Soompi, Lee Jong Suk's return to K-dramas might find him in the role of a lawyer as the main character. He's currently looking into a project called Big Mouth, which is about a third-rate lawyer taking on a murder case. Soompi reports that the drama is a "record of the battles faced by a lawyer of the lower middle class who must become more evil than the villains, in order to protect himself and his family, and punish the bad guys."
Director Oh Choong Hwan—who led the series While You Were Sleeping, Hotel Del Luna, and Start-Up—will also be in charge of Big Mouth. If Lee Jong Suk agrees to star in it, filming will proceed in the latter half of 2021.
Lee Jong Suk has been described by Soompi as an actor who "chooses very interesting scripts that make you want to know what will happen at the end." If you've seen even just a few of his dramas like Pinocchio, Hymn of Death, and Romance Is a Bonus Book, you'll know he chooses compelling and fun projects, and he has good range as an actor.
