Since the coming of Meteor Garden on Philippine Television, the never-ending addiction for Kdramas, Jdramas, and Taiwanese dramas (most commonly known as Asianovelas) has become part of the lives of many Pinoys. Most Filipinos have been hooked on these dramas consuming half of their day just watching these heart-seizing television shows. After the rise of popularity of the Meteor Garden, evidently seen by how everyone in the Philippines has slotted their siesta schedule with watching a 45-minute episode, this show has paved way to other Asianovelas into Primetime TV. We have all seen Full House, My Girl, Coffee Prince, Lovers In Paris, and the latest sensation, Boys Over Flowers, but there are still so much more to see and yet to come for every Pinoy’s viewing pleasure.
But step aside romantic-comedy Asianovelas, and make way for a Kdrama like no other, a brand new show that I’m sure everyone’s going to enjoy.
“Who is your partner?” When you take a look at the definition of ‘Partner’, it gives you synonyms such as colleague, sharer, spouse, and accomplice. Partner is a person who is strongly associated with me; the one who knows me very well and stays by my side. The word ‘Partner’ takes a different meaning when it is used in law firm. Partners are the people who survived from the power struggle. They are executives who are on the top of the law firm pyramid. Enterprises are law firm’s partners. Law firms fight each other to become a partner of business. They struggle to be close to power and to become a slave of money. There are some lawyers who want be the partners of commoners as well. They are willing to be the spokesperson for the underprivileged. It is a story about partner; the one who is going to stay by your side and fight together in front of law.
Tired of watching romantic Kdramas with the same plot line? I definitely recommend this for viewers who crave for action-packed, suspense-filled legal drama with a dash of mystery, light comedy, and romance.
