Why Divorce Attorney Shin is unconventional? Top 4 reasons 


Divorce Attorney Shin is a simple work-life drama with complex characters and plot. Unlike many K-dramas, the series does not have hyped-up emotions and drama. The actions and the characters' emotions and feelings are expressed in a subtle and careful manner. It does not add extra tension to invoke the feelings of the audience. The acting and the plot are carried out in a nuanced and simple form. The drama does not try to make viewers feel overwhelmed. Instead, it takes an effortless path which actually takes smartness to carry out. 

Workplace drama done right

Divorce Attorney Shin is a slice-of-life drama which deals with South Korean law and the people who work in the field. Though it mostly talks about the everyday cases that come across the law firm's way, the series does not get boring. It also has a major mystery plotline surrounding the main character which slowly builds and does not seem out of place. It is reminiscent of dramas like Extraordinary Attorney Woo and Diary of a Prosecutor. 


Defies the expectations of the viewers

Many a time the plot takes a turn in a way the audience might not expect it to follow. While from a distance it seems like a quiet office drama, the drama sometimes defies expectations and turns into action and crime drama as well. Also, much of the twists and turns come from the unpredictability of the characters. Divorce Attorney Shin discusses many sensitive topics too and beautifully brings out the sentiments and warmth in the scenes. 

Unique characters

Divorce Attorney Shin features many quirky characters who keep the plot light and fun. It is easy to watch because many of the supporting characters are eccentric and unique.
