A New Leaf is a 2014 South Korean television drama series that aired on MBC. It stars Myung-Min Kim, Park Min-Young, and Sang-Jung Kim as the main characters. The series follows the story of Kim Seok-Joo, a talented lawyer who is known for his ruthless tactics and excellent track record. He always puts his work above everything else in his life, including relationships with others. However, an unexpected accident occurs, and he loses all his memories of his past life, including his work and those around him.

As he struggles to remember his past, he meets his former secretary Park Ae-Rin, who helps him find his way back to his old life. However, upon regaining his memory, he realizes that he doesn't like the person that he was before and decides to start anew. He quits his job and uses his legal knowledge to help those in need, becoming a pro-bono lawyer.

His new life doesn't come without challenges, as he faces opposition from some of his former colleagues and struggles to adapt to his new lifestyle. However, with the help of Ae-Rin and his newfound friend Lee Ji-Yeon, he slowly begins to piece together his new life and learn to balance work with personal relationships.

The series is a heartwarming story about second chances and self-discovery. Kim Seok-Joo's character development is one of the most significant aspects of the series, as viewers watch him transform from a cold-hearted lawyer to a compassionate pro-bono lawyer who truly cares about his clients.

The chemistry between the main characters is another highlight of the show. Myung-Min Kim and Park Min-Young have excellent on-screen chemistry and play off each other's characters perfectly. Their relationship is one of the most heartwarming aspects of the show, as viewers watch them grow close and rely on each other as Seok-Joo navigates his new life.

The supporting cast also shines in their respective roles, particularly Sang-Jung Kim as Seok-Joo's former boss. His character is one of the primary sources of conflict in the series, as he refuses to accept Seok-Joo's new way of life and often clashes with him in court.

The show also tackles various social issues through Seok-Joo's cases, such as labor exploitation and corruption, adding depth and meaning to the series. The legal aspect of the show is well-executed, with accurate portrayals of courtroom proceedings and legal terminology.

Overall, A New Leaf is a well-rounded series that balances drama, romance, and social commentary. The strong performances from the cast and engaging storyline make it a must-watch for anyone who enjoys legal dramas or heartwarming stories of self-discovery.

A New Leaf is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (29 episodes). The series first aired on April 30, 2014.
