Return (Korean : 리턴; RR : Riteon) is a 2018 South Korean television series. It aired from January 17 to March 22, 2018, on SBS TV's Wednesdays and Thursdays at 22:00 (KST) time slot for 34 episodes.  
A body is found on the freeway, and the four suspects are South Korea's powerful elites. Choi Ja-hye, the most influential and famous female lawyer in the country, decides to take the case and defend Kang In-ho, per the request of her law school friend Geum Na-ra. However, In-ho was having an affair with the victim and was seen having an argument with her the day before the murder took place. As Ja-hye investigates the case with Dokgo Young, a detective with a dark past as a juvenile criminal, they realize that the case is not a simple murder but was born out of corruption and dark secrets among In-ho and his friends.
The first script reading of the cast was held on November 15, 2017.  
On February 7, 2018, it was reported that there was a large dispute on set of the series on the 5th, between lead actress Go Hyun-jung and the series' director Joo Dong-min.  The following day, Go's agency officially announced that the actress would be leaving the team due to irreconcilable differences with the directing team concerning the production process.     The agency also denied the initial reports that her sudden departure was due to her physically assaulting director Joo; stating that "there was indeed a verbal conflict but reports of physical assault was nonsensical".   Meanwhile, viewers of the series flooded SBS website with comments blaming the producer for "abusing his power" and calling for director Joo to quit instead.  
Actress Park Jin-hee later replaced Go Hyun-jung for the role of Choi Ja-hye. She started filming on February 13 and first appeared on the sixteenth episode.
