Chasing after our dreams and goals isn't as inspiring and exciting all the time. At some point, we may lose the motivation to continue on and would need to rely on external factors to keep the dream alive. And if our present realities aren't enough of a push, we sometimes look to works of fiction to bring back our drive to pursue our goals.

If it's always been your dream to become a lawyer, hang tight! The road may not be easy, and it definitely isn't a short trip, but you'll know if it's worth it only if you get there. If you want a bit of inspo from pop culture along the way, legal K-dramas are a good option to try.
