Congratulations to Lee Min Ho! He has been chosen as an “Honorary Prosecutor.” He is basically a PR ambassador for Korean prosecutors.
Prosecutors in South Korea are a lot more powerful than their counterparts in the U.S. Also they form another class of elite individuals. That is why many dramas portray them as elite figures and there are a lot of popular prosecutors as characters. (Example: Vampire Prosecutor, City Hunter) I find it somewhat ironic that Lee Min Ho is an “Honorary Prosecutor” because after all, his character in City Hunter was a rival with one!
On January 4 at 11am, Lee Min Ho, Moon Chae Won, author and professor Kim Nan Do, and NC Soft Yoon Song were given the honor of being “4th Generation Honorary Prosecutors.” Lee Min Ho and Moon Chae Won will help promote the prosecutor’s office for a year.
Other actors that have been honorary prosecutors were:
