Starring Ji Sung, Park Jin-Young, Kim Min-Jung, Park Gyu-Young, The Devil Judge K-Drama takes you through a dystopian Korea where people are homeless, unemployed, and afflicted by a variety of factors. It is set in a time when the citizens of the country feel all hope is lost.
As a solution to all of these issues, the Social Responsibility Foundation is here to meet the demands of the people. The members of this foundation are all-powerful persons in positions of influence. The Foundation launches a Live Court Show for Open Trials. Kang Yo Han is the Live Court’s Chief Judge. He’s a man who never fails to surprise you, and he’ll keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the drama.
Since when do influential people in power care about a noble cause? The Devil Judge will enthrall you by demonstrating what occurs when ordinary people are allowed to participate in legal proceedings. Is this the definition of democracy? To allow the public a say in the judgment or punishment of an accused person. Or does it make you realize how dangerous it is for power to be in the hands of the people? As the verdicts will be highly based on the narrative people see through their screens.
Even if the legal aspect of the story does not interest you to see it, I am confident that the revenge element of the tale will. When I first watched Episode 1, it did not stick with me. But Kang Yo Han’s character is so intriguing and unique that you can’t wait to see what happens next. And believe me when I say it gets better.
