Legal dramas continue to dominate the Netflix charts, with the newly released Partner Tracking — based on the 2013 novel of the same name by Helen Wan — currently the #2 show on the streamer in the US. The story is based on the character of Ingrid Yun, a first-generation Korean-American who navigates the romance, drama and the high stakes of working at the prestigious top-tier law firm of Parsons Valentine & Hunt LLP.
In fact, Netflix subscribers can’t seem to get enough of these kinds of shows.
Partner Tracking continues hot on the heels of one of Netflix’s biggest hits of the year, Extraordinary Lawyer Woo. That series, of course, swaps the skyscraper-dominated landscape of New York City for Seoul. There, an attorney on the autism spectrum uses her unique talents to help clients. And then, going back a few months, there was also Michael Connelly’s hugely successful Netflix adaptation. The Lincoln Lawyer.

Meanwhile, as the first lawyer in her family, Netflix goes on to explain that in Partner Tracking Yun experiences “the trials and tribulations” of standing out at an old-school law firm. “With the support of her friends, she faces challenges in the workplace to break through the glass ceiling on her way to (becoming) a couple. But will his drive and ambition of hers give way to love?
Partner Tracking is a 10-episode series from writer/showrunner/executive producer Georgia Lee that debuted on Netflix on August 26.
Arden Cho stars in the title role, as Yun. She is joined by Bradley Gibson and Alexandra Turshen as her best friends and coworkers, Tyler Robinson and Rachel Friedman, respectively. Ingrid is also at the center of a love triangle that includes wealthy playboy Nick Laren (played by Rob Heaps). Then there’s Ingrid’s co-worker and one-night stand Jeff Murphy, played by Dominic Sherwood.

Yun is a mergers and acquisitions attorney, Netflix continues. She is “navigating her way through an elite Manhattan law firm, one with outdated attitudes toward race and inclusion. As she struggles to become a junior partner, she must figure out how to balance romance, friends, and family expectations while staying true to her moral compass.
Wan, the author of the book from which the series was adapted, is a former lawyer. In fact, she had a decades-long legal career and incorporated some of her experiences into the story.
“My heart is exploding from all the loveme,” Cho tweeted. “Thank you all for watching PARTNER TRACK, hosting viewing parties, sharing the show with your friends, and enjoying all 10 episodes! Really more than grateful! I can’t believe it’s finally the day! I see you in @Netflix.”
