The two stars have both played labor attorneys in past works. Kim played a public attorney struggling for the rights of a terminally-ill employee at a semiconductor company in the 2014 film, “Another Promise.”
An took on the role of a righteous attorney who stands on the side of the weak in a war between the union and a conglomerate supermarket giant in cable network JTBC’s drama “Songgot.”
A spokesperson for the association announced that they would continue to acknowledge the work of labor attorneys and problems regarding Korea’s labor structure. Kim and An will also take their part as honorary ambassadors in the association’s aim to build a fairer society.
