Divorce Attorney Shin Ep 2: A Quick Recap!
Divorce Attorney Shin Ep 2 opened up with Sung-han dealing with his client, Lee Seo-jin. He was determined to win the case for little Hyeon-u’s sake. So he brought Hyeon-u to court to learn his decision. He believed the boy needed to select with whom he wanted to live. Well, the reason why the little boy wasn’t asked was simple- Hyeon-u would pick his mom. He had seen her in pain, watching him from a distance. But it wasn’t easy for Hyeon-u to speak against his dad. But Sung-han knew how to win Hyeon-u’s trust. In court, Sung-han brought up the points that explained that Hyeon-u was unhappy living with his dad, Kang Hee-sub.
Well, Hee-sub was a nasty piece of a deal, as shown in the previous episode, and Sung-han finally got a chance to grill him in court about his lousy behavior. Sung-han soon exposed Hee-sub’s sex tape, forcing him to show his real side in front of the court. He started cursing and claiming that Seo-jin deserved all this pain. She was in grief and pain while trying to maintain her composure in court. But finally, Seo-jin won custody of her child. She dropped to her knees and asked for forgiveness. Luckily her son had no grudges toward his mom, and the mother-son duo reunited again.
Past That Still Haunts
Sung-han headed to see his old friends from his music days the following day. On his way back to the office, he met Seo-jin, who had brought a bottle of wine as a thank-you token.

Sung-han’s Next Case
The same day, Sung-han met Park Ae-ran, a cleaner who questioned him about the divorce fees. She appeared to be his next client. Ae-ran was working to the bone to help her family. But her husband, Byeong-cheol didn’t help her financially. Even her mother-in-law belittled her all the time. The old woman was also rude toward Ae-ran kids, Mi-so and Mi-yeong. That was why Ae-ran believed that divorce was a possible escape. But before deciding, she spoke to her mother-in-law about renting the unit upstairs. She suggested her mother-in-law share a room with her kids. Ae-ran then despaired with her husband and urged him to speak to her. But things didn’t go well.
