Lee Sung-min joins Kim Hye-soo, Kim Mu-yeol in Netflix drama Juvenile Court


Kim Mu-yeol, Lee Sung-min

Casting has been confirmed for Kim Hye-soo (Hyena) and Kim Mu-yeol (Bad Guys: City of Evil) to star in Netflix’s upcoming drama Juvenile Court, and reports confirm that Lee Sung-min (Money Game) will also be joining the main cast.

The drama is about a judge who hates dealing with underaged offenders, but gets assigned to the juvenile division in a suburban district court house. As the story explores each criminal case, they aim to question how social environment plays a factor in the behavior of children and youth, and how the adults in their lives as well as society as a whole also share blame and responsibility.

Kim Hye-soo plays the central character, Judge Shim Eun-seok, the new judge at the district juvenile court house. Having a prickly personality, she is easily irritated, but she has impressive credentials and is more than capable in her job.

In contrast, Kim Mu-yeol plays the more down-to-earth Associate Judge Cha Tae-joo. He didn’t go to the best schools and doesn’t have any fancy connections, but he approaches his job with compassion for the youth. And he tries to be like a friendly uncle to them rather than a scary judge.

Lee Sung-min takes on the role of Kang Won-joong, the head judge at the juvenile crimes court, who is a complex thinker, ambitious, and charismatic. Although he has been working as a judge for 18 years and counting, with every decision he still continues to struggle with finding the balance between what is ideal versus what is realistic.

Written by Kim Min-seok and directed by PD Hong Jong-chan (Life, Dear My Friends), Netflix drama Juvenile Courts is currently in the planning stages and a release date has not yet been announced.

Hot damn indeed! This is an all star Chungmuro A-List cast! Netflix Korea is really putting in a lot of $$/and attracting big name A-List talent :O If I recall, Netflix last yr put in close to or over $700 million dollars in Korea's entertainment for their Netflix Korea division. Very interesting that Netflix (A streaming company) is becoming a huge force in Korea. Shows how much the time's are changing, and how much people's viewing pattern has changed too.

Great cast. I will definitely keep an eye out for Netflix's JUVENILE COURT/JUVENILE JUDGEMENT.
Probably every young actor in the country will be trying to get an audition for this. That is a good thing.
So Netflix, a kindly suggestion. Please make age appropriate casting.
Right now in OCN's THE UNCANNY COUNTER (which I am really enjoying) we have a casting situation where at least 2 male high school bullies are being played by actors in their thirties in real life.
