Kim Min Suk and Shin Rin Ah currently appear in "Defendant" as Lee Sung Kyu and Hayeon, respectively. The 27-year-old actor plays the mysterious role of an ex-convict who looks after Hayeon after his father was convicted for alleged murder.

On the Feb. 20 episode of "Defendant," Lee Sung Kyu's past was slowly revealed, exposing how he took part in Cha Min Ho's (Um Ki Joon) plan to ruin the life of Park Jung Woo (Ji Sung).

After he was acquitted of assault, Lee Sung Kyu has been the protector of Hayeon while Park Jung Woo tries to recall who framed him for the murder of his wife.

The SBS legal thriller has been leading the Monday-Tuesday late night timeslot. Korea Herald cited "Defendant" earned a viewership rating of 25.2 percent in Seoul households and an overall rating of 22.2 percent.
