Jang Dong Gun explained that the script made him want to return to the small screen after a 6-year hiatus.

“I wanted to play a bright and cheerful character through a drama. I received the script for Suits and it was good. Just the script alone was enough [to accept the role]. I had no reason not to do it.” — Jang Dong Gun


He also approved of his character, lawyer “Choi Kang Suk.”

“‘Choi Kang Suk’ is a man with a lot of confidence. I was attracted to his charisma.” — Jang Dong Gun


Finally, he appreciated the bromance portrayed in the drama!

“I enjoyed working with Park Hyung Sik, who is an actor with many strengths and a lot of charm. We work well together.” — Jang Dong Gun


Suits is the story of top lawyer Choi Kang Suk (Jang Dong Gun), who hires genius Go Yeon Woo (Park Hyung Sik) to work for his law firm despite having no qualifications to practice law.


The drama is a remake of the popular American drama series of the same name, and will also star Jin Hee Kyung, Chae Jung An, Go Sung Hee, and Choi Gwi Hwa.
