Sohn Hyun-joo, Choi Jin-hyuk courted as opponents for Justice in new KBS drama

Actors Sohn Hyun-joo (Criminal Minds, Signal) and Choi Jin Hyuk (An Empress’ Dignity, Devilish Joy) have both been offered parts for a new drama on KBS called Justice.

The drama will be an adaptation of a web novel, also titled Justice, which was first published in 2017 and written by writer Jang Ho. A lawyer becomes set on revenge after losing his family from wrongful dealings of wealth and power. However, his greed for vengeance leads him to shake hands with a man like the devil, which sets the course for the story.

If he accepts, Sohn Hyun-joo will be playing Song Woo-yong, president of a construction company. From the outside, he appears to be just one of many who run a small business and nothing sets him apart from the crowd. In reality, his life is shrouded in darkness. He’s a master manipulator and adept at control people by using money and people’s ambitions to his advantage.

Choi Jin-hyuk is being considered for the role of the lawyer, Lee Tae-kyung. He has the pride of having the highest case success rate in his field and is always entrusted with the firm’s most important cases. He’s astute, logical, great with words and public speaking, and good looking to boot.

Directing will be done by PD Jo Woong who directed KBS Drama Special, A Midsummer Night’s Dream back in 2016. And writing is credited to Jung Chan-mi who previously wrote on the writer’s team for Sassy, Go Go.

It would be great to see Sohn Hyun-joo back in dramaland as it’s been a couple years since Criminal Minds. I think I’ve seen him play every kind of character, from evil chaebol to friendly next door neighbor, and he’s fantastic at everything. I don’t watch a lot of revenge stories, but I may check this one out for him.

KBS’ upcoming drama Justice is currently being planned to air later this year in July.

Looking forward to seeing Choi Jin-hyuk all the way to the end of a good drama.

Every Law kdrama has almost similar story and characters. Korean scriptrriters really love to do plastic surgery of stories. It seems like all stories come from one clinic.

I know what you mean...I'm totally surprised with Radiant/Dazzling aka The Light in Your Eyes. So far it's managed to be different from any other kdrama I've seen and I wasn't expecting that since stories about turning back time are so common.

Oh I thought it was being called Inner Circle? Or was it an alternate name?

I hope this drama does well and CJH stays till the end! What happened with TLE? Was it because the Royal Highness took all the limelight?

Various rumors have circulated...seems he had a prior engagement for a fan meeting in Taiwan. I refuse to watch the last episodes of LE but I've heard she didn't even mourn his death. The whole thing went south and I partially blame fans who wanted the Emperor to have a redemption arc.

Soompi just did an article with goodbyes from the cast members - but Choi Jin hyuk wasn't included. How weird.

CJH's agency just released that he filmed a program recently. From the article release it does seem to overlap with the filming of TLE. So i believe it when they said he has prior agreements and can't extend beyond ep 48.

TLE was postponed more than once resulting in a later end date than originally planned. Top that with an extension, the end date just got further away. Huhuhu

But it was just not right the way they dealt with his character the last two episodes. An honorary tribute to what he did should have been included in the end, but they just ignored his existence and his contributions to the downfall of the empire and focussed solely on Hyuk. I have seen this before, in Mirae's Fate and Cheese, and it made me so angry then, because I was supporting the actors that were supposedly the leads, and whom I was rooting for. This time, I rooted for Hyuk, and I was ecstatic over his hogging the last remaining episodes, but if I were a Choi Jin hyuk fan, I would have been so mad. I loled at your username, and am still sad over the ending.

I feel like I dodged a bullet for not starting TLE despite the good reviews from beanies. I really can't stand vague ending, either for the story or characters.

I couldn't finish it either.... I enjoyed the ride up to episode 24, but it started so weird with a sudden change of the story. I only finished it by reading live recap on Dramamilk... The writer has been circling around with her story, I almost forgot that they needed to find out who actually killed Grandma. I also couldn't understand when the writer added several new characters in the last minutes... :(

I don't mind if he dies as long as it's a logical conclusion and not some kind of thing that doesn't make sense (like another drama I'm thinking of).

Hope this will be better than Criminal Minds. Such a waste of talented actors.

I think he needs a bit of a break, he was looking a bit tired at the end, and remember we will see him in Vagabond soon.

I can't believe I'm actually looking forward to watch Vagabond. All thanks to SSR. And since its on SBS too, can I expect it to be craytastic like TLE? Does it work like that?
Hahaha

Yes please! RH and rocky needs to reunite and rekindle their brotherhood!

Choi Jin Hyuk getting revenge again? The Last Empress cast seems to be moving onto new projects rapidly, with Shing Sung Rok doing Vagabond and Jang Nara considering an office mystery drama with Lee Sang Yoon.

I hope Choi Jin Hyuk is doing well and whatever project he will take please don't deceive him again. I feel so sorry for him in The Last Empress and his character, Na Wang Sik. He took good decision for not extending that drama since his scenes even less compare to side characters. I understand his feelings.

It'll be Choi Jin-hyuk in a revenge situation again, but that's ok. Looking forward to watching him go head-to-head with Sohn Hyun-joo.

I am sure about trusting Choi Jin Hyuk with this role. If there is n't any makjangish***** mess up he will do just fine.

Can't wait to have you back in drama land. Your last two works are pretty much non-existent for me.
