​’One Dollar Lawyer’ Episode 8 Recap contains Spoilers.

One-Dollar Lawyerepisode 8 begins at the prosecutor’s office, Ji-hun telling Yoonsub that he would like to be a prosecutor just like him. He didn’t know his father would become corrupt and greedy in minutes. Yoon-sub falls for the illegal slush funds, and Ji-hun rushes over to his father’s home to retrieve the corrupt officials’ list from his office.

Everyone starts to doubt him and blame him for Yoon-sub’s death. Although he promises to bring the killers to justice, it looks like it will be a difficult road.

Ye-jin asks Jihun to get Ma-ri drunk from the bar and then returns to the story.

Ji-hun puts his efforts into the work of finding out what happened to his father, while others around him begin to see him differently. They point fingers at him because he did the right thing. Ju-Yeong, who was present at the hearing that evening, follows Ji-hun into the courtroom to see the impact Yoon-sub’s passing has on him.

She tries to comfort Jihun after the fact, but when she hears about Yoon-sub’s relationship, she is shocked. Ji-hun later tries to find the truth but is stopped at all points and is hampered in his investigations by those around him. He doesn’t find out who spoke to his father last time.

Ji-hun did not leave the office because of this. Ju-Yeong stood by him through all his pain and despair. They go on their first date after she makes him smile again.

Baek Law Firm has been in turmoil for two years. Hyun-mu is fed up with the drama and finally gives Ju-Yeong an agreement for a partnership. Ju-Yeong resigns and rents the room that Ji-hun is currently working in. Ju-Yeong falls for the place at first sight and eventually tries recruiting Ji-hun.

Ji-hun seems to love her as they shop for fish for Juyeong’s aquarium. Later, she asks him if he truly is as accessible as he can, similar to how he feels now. He eventually leaves to return to work, and she promises he will see himself as she does.

Later, Ji-hun is lost in his thoughts while out for dinner with a date. He admits to being entangled in the past when she asks him about it. He fears that if they cannot overcome these feelings, how will they be able to have a happy relationship?

Although the discussion appears to be heading towards a breakup, Ji-hun proposes that Ju-Yeong do the same. It leaves her feeling happy and, actually, somewhat relieved.

It’s a bittersweet moment when Ju-Yeong has to leave Baek Law Firm. Unfortunately, her paper gets lost when she bumps into the man (whom I assume is the main bad guy in the series). He immediately dispatches someone to retrieve the papers after he has figured out the problem.

Ju-Yeong, a distant woman, gets her first client – Mu-Jang, the future office manager. She is excited about her first client and calls Ji-hun. Then she finally sees the documents she accidentally found. As someone enters her office, she rushes to Ji-hun to retrieve the documents.

Ji-hun informs her that he will be waiting at the station as she boards the subway. In a dramatic scene, Ju-Yeong moves to the front of her car as the masked man follows through. She immediately recognizes the man when she approaches him. Ji-hun is confused at the station when he can’t find Ju-Yeong, where they had planned.

He jumps in his car to sense a commotion at one of the bogies. Ji-hun, looking already like he’s expecting the worst, walks towards the commotion and sees Ju-Yeong seated on one of the chairs, motionless. He reaches her, and she is pale and covered in blood. Ji-hun is distressed when she apologizes to her.

Even though they rush her to the hospital, they cannot save her. Ji-hun is left to suffer the pain of losing someone he cares about. He finally walks out with the wedding ring he gave her and a renewed determination to take revenge.

One Dollar Lawyer Episode 8 Ending

Ji-hun, at the office, is determined to handle the case until the attacker surrenders. He realizes, however, that this is not the man who killed her fiancee. He gets out of the car and cleans his face.

Ji-hun feels overwhelmed by the loss of Ju-Yeong, the only person there for him. Finally, Mu-Jang arrives at the office to speak to Ju-Yeong. Ji-hun then takes over his case for 1000 won.

One Dollar Lawyer Episode 8 Review

That was one heartbreaking episode. Despite only being in the show for a few episodes, Ju-Yeong has made a lasting impression with her charm and righteous personality. She was Ji-hun’s rock and his voice of reason.

Even without him, it was great to see her on-screen. She provided the comfort with the audience needed in these dark episodes. Losing such a sweet character early in her career is a loss to all of us.

Regardless, the episode brought Ji-hun to life. He was a mystery of goofiness, craziness and confusion before these episodes. His actions now make sense. We sympathize with him more deeply. He needs to get a good break. You know what, guys?

One Dollar Attorney Episode 8 is an emotional ride that will make Ju-Yeong fans cry and likely make Ji-hun feel close.
