Ji Sung, GOT7’s Jinyoung, Kim Min Jung, And Park Gyu Young Teases Tense Dynamics In New Posters For Korean Drama “The Devil Judge”
Upcoming Korean drama “The Devil Judge” has given us a sneak peek into its characters!
tvN’s new drama “The Devil Judge” is set in a dystopian version of Korea (think ‘Hunger Games’) where the entire country participates in a trial through a live broadcast courtroom show.
Ji Sung, GOT7’s Jin Young, Kim Min Jung and Park Gyu Young were recently confirmed as the cast’s leads.
Ji Sung will star as Kang Yo Han, a head judge who punishes the dishonest with no mercy. He turns the courtroom into a reality show and earns himself the nickname “devil judge.” However, he is a mysterious man who hides his true identity and intentions. Will he be a hero of the people or is he a devil hiding behind the law?
Kim Min Jung will play Jung Sun Ah. She is described as Kang Yo Han’s deceptive and innocent-looking Nemesis. Jung Sun Ah is recorded as the only person capable of unnerving Kang Yo Han.
GOT7’s Jin Young stars as Kim Ga On. He is an associate judge who grows increasingly suspicious of Kang Yo Han.
Park Gyu Young will be playing Yoon Soo Hyun. She is Kim Ga On’s long time friend and a detective. She has feelings for Kim Ga On and longs to protect him.
On June 11, The Devil Judge released new posters that teases the tense dynamics between the lead characters.
The first poster teases conflict between judge Kang Yo Han and his innocent-looking nemesis, Jung Sun Ah (Kim Min Jung). Recall that Jung Sun Ah is the only person capable of shaking Kang Yo Han.
In the poster, Jung Sun Ah has a hand over Kang Yo Han’s eyes with the comment, “You’re still the same, I see? Not knowing your place and putting your hands on things that aren’t yours.”
The comment pours fuel on my growing intrigue. Firstly, who is voicing the narrative? Could it be Kang Yo Han implying that Jung Sun Ah disregards her place and interferes in his affairs? or Jung Sun Ah, voicing her caution and stating her superiority!
It is thrilling to see who gets the upper hand between these two characters. Their dynamics is intoxicating!
The second poster has Kang Yo Han against Kim Ga On (played by GOT7’s Jin Young). Kim Ga On is an associate judge who distrusts the vicious head judge, Kang To Han.
In the poster, Kang Yo Han glares into Kim Ga On’s eyes declaring “Why don’t you choose? Whether you will block my way or stand by me”
The second poster reconsiders the question: Is Kang Yo Han a hero or a foe? The narrative gives off a villains vibe, painting Kang Yo Han as a headstrong devil and Kim Ga On as someone trying to stand in his way.
Also, When we remember that we can’t tell where Kang Yo Han will be standing when it comes to good and bad; It adds to the thrill as we strive to understand this dynamic.
The final poster shows the relationship between associate judge Kim Ga On and Yoon Soo Hyun, his longtime friend and detective who has feelings for him. She gazes longingly at him reminiscing; “I didn’t like seeing that kid cry so, I confessed my feeling to him no less than five times.”
The first thing I got here was the ‘five times. It seems our character Yoon Soo Hyun will be head over heels for Kim Ga On but only be able to gaze at him from afar.
If she has to confess five times, that means she was rejected each time. Why? Could it be that Kim Ga On does not share her affections or that he can not share her affections?
“The Devil Judge” has captivated our attention but will the drama do justice to it?
Tune in as tvN’s upcoming Korean drama, “The Devil Judge” premieres on July 3 at 9 p.m. KST.
Mark your calendars!
