If you've finished all the new K-dramas on Netflix, we have a recommendation for you. Korean broadcaster tvN has recently released a new drama, The Devil Judge, that will surely get you hooked. The Devil Judge is Choi Jung-kyu's latest masterpiece and is produced by Studio Dragon and Studio & New, which brought us other hit shows such as The King: Eternal Monarch and Crash Landing On You. The new drama aims to deliver a message about justice through a courtroom show.
The first episode of the new show was released on tvN this week on July 3 and will feature 16 episodes in total. If you have yet to sink your teeth into this new show or just aren't convinced yet, here are three things you probably did not know about the new Korean series.
1. It will be set in a dystopian version of South Korea
The Devil Judge is a drama that is set in a dystopian version of South Korea. Chaos reigns in this society and people openly speak up about their hatred for their country's leaders while ignoring all law and order. In this world, head trial judge Kang decides that things need to change. He decides to conduct his courtroom like a reality show where he ruthlessly punishes the guilty publicly. As a result, he earns the nickname, "devil judge".
However, as the show progresses, the audience begins to see a rivalry taking place between the devil judge and Jung Sun-ah, the director of a corporate social responsibility foundation.
