Ji Sung courted for new drama The Devil Judge
Ji Sung (Doctor John) is positively reviewing the script for a new role as the lead of upcoming drama The Devil Judge. If he confirms, Ji Sung will play the titular character who is a different type of judge, one that sides with injustice.
The drama is centered around a desperate rivalry between two men. A chief judge and an associate judge begin a relationship of chasing and escaping each other, with the winner being whoever reveals the true face of the other. Ji Sung’s (potential) character works as the chief judge of a trial court, and funnily enough, his name is John (just like Ji Sung’s last character).
With his noble appearance and charismatic smile, John is known as a cryptic star judge with exquisite tastes. His background as the tragic heir of a chaebol family adds to his mysteriousness. However, he hides his true self from everyone; he actually believes that justice doesn’t exist in the world, and he sees everything as a game. He makes a great display of punishing criminals during broadcasted court proceedings while achieving hidden objectives, thereby making court into his own twisted reality show.
Former judge Moon Yoo-seok (of Miss Hammurabi fame) will be writing the script, and PD Choi Jung-gyu (Red Moon, Blue Sun) will directing The Devil Judge. The drama is supposed to air in the latter half of this year.
