Recently, it was confirmed that Kim Min-jung (My Fellow Citizens) is the latest casting addition to The Devil Judge, the upcoming drama about a courtroom reality show where the entire nation sits as jury. She joins Ji Sung (Doctor John), marking their first reunion since the 2008 MBC drama New Heart. Ji Sung plays the titular judge of this public courtroom, and according to the synopsis, the drama will keep viewers guessing whether he’s a true hero or a two-faced villain.
Kim Min-jung’s character is the elegant, intelligent, and charismatic executive director of a social philanthropy foundation. She’s an almost bewitching character who uses the greed and ambitions of powerful people to manipulate them behind the scenes. In the drama, she’s the lifelong archnemesis of Kang Yo-han, Ji Sung’s character.
Jinyoung (When My Love Blooms) plays a younger associate judge who is part of the model trials department and seemingly the only hope for justice in this corrupt reality. He lost both parents when he was young and had a subsequently rough adolescence. Through his grit and inner strength alone, he managed to become an appointed judge. As he keeps an eye on Ji Sung’s character, he becomes confused about who is truly right.
Meanwhile, Park Kyu-young (Sweet Home) plays an ace police investigator from the regional crimes unit. She attempts to uncover Ji Sung’s secrets in order to find any potential relation to a case of hers. Park Kyu-young’s character and Jinyoung’s character grew up together almost like siblings, so they’re really good friends.
Directed by Choi Jung-kyu (Red Moon Blue Sun) and written by judge-turned-writer Moon Yoo-seok (Miss Hammurabi), The Devil Judge will begin air on tvN in the latter half of this year.
