Doctor Lawyer Episode 10 Review
Doctor Lawyer always surprises me with the twists the series introduces every moment. Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it usually always does.
In the last episode, I’m surprised how casually everyone takes Jin-gi, although the latter turned out to be very scary. I wonder why this general apathy exists where nobody wants to take precautions and think before trusting highly untrustworthy people, but it works in our favor because it gives rise to crazy situations.
However, I think it’s important to have a good character like Yi-han who doesn’t have a lot of complications with him. Yes, there might be a time when we learn he was playing everyone, but I doubt that’s the case. Either way, Mi-seon’s shocking backstory makes the water murkier, and it almost seems like Jin-gi isn’t telling Mi-seon the truth about her daughter.
More importantly, this man definitely keeps people on drugs in order to maintain power over their highly influential guardians. It’s an interesting thought and I’m excited to see where the story goes from here.
Doctor Lawyer is streaming on Disney+.
