The case against double jeopardy in tvN’s Confession
This is definitely one of the shows I’m most looking forward to this year. Confession is busy preparing for its upcoming premiere next month, and tvN has recently released a teaser clip to make sure we get properly excited for the show. Not that I need anything more to get excited about given Junho (Greasy Melo) and Yoo Jae-myung (Hundred Million Stars From the Sky) are starring, and the director of Mother is at the helm.
The teaser itself is quite brief, and really just gives us a snapshot of what the show will be about. The first shot is that of an eagle view of an alley crowded with police cars, with the captions reading, “The principle against double jeopardy. Republic of Korea’s Criminal Code Article 13 clause 1.” The teaser goes on to explain the principle, saying that a case that has been decided may not be tried again.
But the real meat of the show (and the principle) is that a defendant who is found innocent, will remain forever innocent. Flashes of a police dog, a hand throwing a piece of paper into a fire, and police taking pictures at a crime scene appear. The clip ends with shots of Junho, who will play a defense lawyer, and Yoo Jae-myung, a former detective who looks rather menacing. I’m not sure the two will be strictly playing on the same side, at least at the beginning, but I look forward to their interactions, whether as friend or foe.
Confession is slated to premiere next month on tvN.
