Exploiting the same legal topic

Going head-to-head, coincidentally, both “Doctor Lawyer” and “Why Her” are legal dramas. The male lead of “Doctor Lawyer” is a doctor-turned-lawyer while the female protagonist of “Why Her” is a lawyer who switches to a university law professor. They both have complicated pasts and look cold on the outside. Both are stories of the unfolding mysteries surrounding their lives and work.

The cast is led by top actors 

In addition to the fun plot, Doctor Lawyer and Why Her both attract viewers thanks to the main cast. Doctor Lawyer marks the long-awaited comeback to the small screen of A-lister So Ji Sub after a long time, drawing high expectations. Meanwhile, the central character of Why Her is portrayed by K-drama “rating queen” Seo Hyun Jin, one of the most successful and trustworthy idol-turned-actresses of the industry.

The acting of So Ji Sub and Seo Hyun Jin has also been recognized by experts through the Best Actor Award at Baeksang award that So Ji Sub won in 2005 and the Best Actress Award at Baeksang 2017 for Seo Hyun Jin. It is very rare that a Baeksang Best Actor and a Best Actress go head-to-head, so the audience is even more curious to see their performance.

An exciting battle between the two national broadcasters of South Korea

From the beginning of 2022 until now, neither MBC nor SBS has had any outstanding work in the weekend time frame. Not only was MBC’s Tomorrow not as successful as expected, but the ratings were quite disappointing. However, perhaps after Doctor Lawyer and Why Her, MBC and SBS will regain their form. It’s been a long time since MBC’s and SBS’s dramas had such a compelling confrontation.

Now Why Her seems to be doing better than Doctor Lawyer. SBS has always been the leading broadcaster in the field of dramas in Korea, so, understandably, they have a better start. But the audience still has a chance to see a spectacular breakthrough of MBC like what The Red Sleeve did when competing with Now We Are Breaking Up at the end of 2021.

Given the current growth momentum and reaction from domestic audiences, both Doctor Lawyer and Why Her will be able to hit double-digit ratings in the coming episodes. SBS or MBC, which station will win this time?
