Working together to find the real culprits in tvN’s Confession
Aww yeah. Now that tvN’s Confession has all but confirmed that our two main leads Junho (Greasy Melo) and Yoo Jae-myung (Hundred Million Stars From the Sky) will be working together, I am ALL in. Even seeing their rapport in just these teasers has me excited to see their partnership come to life on the small screen.
The two teasers actually center around one conversation between our leads, each told through the perspective of either the former detective or the criminal defense lawyer. Junho’s character starts off the call by explaining over the phone what the prohibition on double jeopardy means: That once a judgment has been handed down, that case can’t be tried again. “That is the law. And that is reality.” He’s walking in what looks like an old warehouse, with a brightly lit room inside that hosts a bunch a pictures of potential criminals on the walls.
Yoo Jae-myung is on the other line, driving, and furiously points out the legal loophole for perpetrators, “Because of that godforsaken law, if the real culprit gets a not guilty judgment, then he’s forever innocent!” Junho meets Yoo Jae-myung as the latter pulls up in front of the warehouse and says, “That’s why a judgment is more important than the truth.” The former detective counters that that’s why they need to catch the real culprit.
I love this back and forth from two people who live and breathe in different areas of the law, and it’s that dynamic that I’ll be looking forward to when Confession premieres later this month. The courtroom thriller will air on tvN’s Saturday-Sunday slot from March 23, and will run for 16 episodes.
