Based on the life of former South Korean president Roh Moo-hyun, THE ATTORNEY was this year's most controversial box office hit, with over 10 million admissions. Set during the days of the military dictatorship, it follows the moral transformation of a pragmatic, mercenary and a tad shady attorney-at-law Song Woo-Seok (star Song Kang-Ho), who only got into the legal profession for the money. But everything changes one day, when he decides to take on the country's National Security Law by accepting as his client the student activist Jin-Woo (Lim Si-wan), who has been unfairly arrested and tortured by the government.
