Why Her? is a romantic thriller about a coldhearted lawyer, who is determined to always win and a law school student falling in love, added with intense courtroom fights and plot twists.
Here’s everything you need to know about Why Her?.
Why Her? Plot
Oh Soo Jae, the youngest partner at one of the country’s most prominent legal firms, has already proven she has what it takes to be one of the top lawyers in the country. Soo Jae is well on her way to becoming one of TK Law Firm’s top attorneys, driven by her self-righteous convictions and a never-ending ambition to win. However, when one of her cases takes an unexpected turn, Soo Jae is forced to stand by and watch as all of her hard work crumbles around her. Soo Jae is compelled to take on the role of associate lecturer at a local law school after being demoted at work.
Soo Jae tries her hardest to fit into her new work, determined to reclaim her position within the company, but the pain of her demotion lingers. That pain begins to fade after meeting Gong Chan, a university student who frequently crosses paths with Soo Jae. Gong Chan’s warm heart remains strong, despite his traumatic past, especially when his devotion to Soo Jae increases.
Gong Chan, clearly smitten with Soo Jae, sticks by her side as she tries to claw her way back into the firm’s good graces. Will her perseverance and the support of Gong Chan be enough to reclaim her position, or will the powers that be continue to push her down?
