The contracts have not yet been signed but Yeon Woo Jin's agency says he is considering his first leading role in a broadcast drama. Yeon Woo Jin is up for the role of a divorce lawyer in the weekend drama "The Divorce Lawyer Is Dating," also known as Divorce Lawyer in Love."
Actress Jo Yeo Jung is considering the role of his cynical love interest in this legal love story.
Don't let the title mislead you, as it will be a story about the attraction between two divorce lawyers. And it will not be easy for them to negotiate a working romantic relationship. Divorce lawyers often have a professional handicap when it comes to dating. Having seen so many unions fail, they tend to be cynical about love and marriage.

He nagged her relentlessly in his role as office manager. She was also no fun to work with. They drove each other crazy. However, she was so unethical, so determined to win for her clients, that her misdeeds caused her license to be suspended. Years passed and he studied law, eventually becoming a lawyer.

So technically they are not both divorce attorneys at the same time, but they both know the ropes.
Yeon Woo Jin's last role was in "Marriage Not Dating." He had a role in two episodes of the drama special "Secret Love" and also recently appeared with Song Seung Hoon in "When A Man Loves." In 2014 he appeared in the film "Tunnel 3D."
