Because unlike COR, he believe that everybody should be treated equally by the legal system and not the powerless more than those with power (the truth is that those with power don't have to fear mutch in korea) and even if he truly get to understand the old man life, in the end it was pointless because another judge destroy his work.

 

When he saw the news , he feel like the system is truly broken and what he does (it was his childhood dream to be a judge and a job he love) is pointless.

 

The worst part is that the journalist kind of say that the verdict is harsh were a guy who get years in jail for a lesser crime was thanking them.

I certainly appreciate IBR’s belief that everybody should be treated equally by the law but for him to think that all judges (the legal system is made up of people) will have the same principles and values as him is naive. Even if most of the other judges are corrupt (which I doubt) or the whole system is corrupt, as long as he does his job properly, he’s still doing his part. He shouldn’t beat himself up about his verdict. 

 

About episode 13, the best scene for me was when Judge Han finally brought home the truth to this show. The truly powerful people are the judges. It’s sad if they didn’t even realize that. I’ll leave with a quote by J.R.R. Tolkien since my favorite judge touched on this topic:

 

“Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement.

It made me want to go beyond just reading others’ stories.”

The preview scare me so mutch because if he kneef to protect her and promise to not see her again/leave her alone would be so not realistic for me. I don't think it would truly happen to judge.

I'm worried about ep14. I guess the man (in-law of OR's oppa) commits suicide and NJ Group uses media to put pressure on the Court. Anything like NJ Group forces him to suicide to save their reputation? It's like an economic kingdom and this issue may affect the country economy? I wonder why PR Han has to say sorry to OR. Maybe she is forced to resign? 

I don't think that oppa will do anything bad to OR. But why BR has to kneel down? Something seriously happens to that point? Arrrrg, 1 week is too long. I can't wait...

I can't believe this is going to end in two weeks. The preview looks scary. IBR kneeling in front of NJ group ceo and saying I will stay away from her. I think the professor committed suicide either  because he couldn't contain his guilt or because of the pressure from higher ups I don't think its because of OR's judgement but the court is filled with many people who are waiting for the right moment to attack her. I can't wait for next week. I know they will somehow manage to come out of that situation I am just excited to watch how? This is getting more exciting.

I think the Professor's suicide could be foul play and by none other than the powerful CEO of NJ group. He had shared with O Reum that with power, they can do anything like bringing down a company, what more when a powerful man is angry with O Reum for not helping him to acquit his brother in law and instead he's convicted and that meant tarnishing NJ group. That guy is abusing his wealth connections and power. He's so crazy that he could even hurt O Reum. 

 

Judge Han saying sorry to Judge Park in ep 14...I remember O Reum wanted to abstain from the case but Judge Han sought the understanding of the prosecution and they felt that it's alright for her to be on the judges' panel. The sentencing was derived unanimously by all 3. Judge Han is seen giving space to his juniors to express their thoughts and explain their recommendation.

 

There has to be a scapegoat and Park Cha O Reum is the main target as we know, due to her courage and conviction to bring fairness to the court. She, being a rookie judge, had to witness  this catastrophic outcome which is traumatizing. But she is indeed changing for the better as she knows her weakness is to judge the powerful at the start of the trial so she did right to ask Ba Reun to relentlessly remind her to stay unbiased. 

 

Judge Han is a powerful and impactful mentor with his wise words in this episode. His timely reiteration that the judge is the most powerful yet dangerous person in the court serves as a reminder to the 2 young judges that their judgement has serious consequences and it's important to bear that in mind. He reminded too, that a judge should not have pre-conceived notion that the powerful are bad right from the start.

 

I like the frankness of Ba Reun when he said that O Reum made his uncomfortable and that he reflects on himself and his belief, driven by her opposite qualities. A guy who self-reflects and make improvements because of the woman he likes, is admirable. O Reum's feelings stemmed from Ba Reun being there by her side always, to help her survive. It's a wonderful conversation between these 2 judges. It's a growing journey for each other and the foundation is laid.   :)

 

Ba Reun's protective nature kicked in as soon as he heard that O Reum could be drunk and the way he and Judge Jung hurried out.....  :D 

His going to O Reum's rescue is cool! I like the disco scene a lot. What happened with the 2 guys drowning the girl with liquor and trying to rape her  in a crowded pub is very realistic and relatable.

 

My fav lines -  "Working/Being with you is not good for my heart"

                          "It's ok to inconvenience others occasionally, especially with me".  :wub:

 

This is such a lovely edit of all the beautiful moments of  Ba Reun and O Reum, credit to bpwinces! Awesome job!

We’re down to the last few episodes and I thought I have already seen everything but this series still has a lot more to offer. Since the Civil Court Department 44 is now handling criminal cases, they have been assigned to hear the case of a prominent professor who allegedly raped his student. A quasi-rape in legal term but I think a rape is a rape regardless of the details. Anyway, the case became more complicated as the professor involved turned out to be the brother-in-law of NJ Group’s Min Yong-joon (Lee Tae-sung). Since the defendant came from a powerful family, he can afford to hire a lawyer (who seem to be an expert on defending disgusting people). This said defense lawyer sure knows how to ask the right question to make it look like the victim willfully agreed to the sexual act. I’m enraged with his questioning and I know a lot of people still thinks that way.

Since I’m not a judge, I’m free to make my biases known and here’s my two cents worth: NO MEANS NO. As Im Ba-reun (Infinite L / Kim Myung-soo) said, humans are created to communicate verbally so why would someone assume what a woman wants based on their actions alone. Is that defendant a mutant who could read minds? He clearly isn’t. He’s just someone who can’t keep his small thing on his pants.

I have just watched episode 12 and 13.  Our three judges were through a lot. And judging from the preview, episode 14 will be heavy too. 

 

As for O Reum and Ba Reun's relationship. Something has changed.  It looks like O Reum is now really interested in Ba Reun. Well, you wouldn't ask someone you don't have feelings for, what exactly he likes about you, right?  The thing is they are totally different from Bo Wang and Do Yeon (I don't mean in it in a bad way of course, different characters, different past). O Reum experienced sexual harassment in the past and it's not an easy thing to overcome. It takes a lot of time. Some people may never recover from this. But she is slowly changing and opening to Ba Reun. It's actually a great progress for her. And it's really admirable that Ba Reun is always there for her. It's not like he has to wait for her. He WANTS to wait because he knows she is worth it. And that's why his love for her is so obvious. I think that this time when she said that she will inconvenience him in the future because he is her right-seat judge had more meaning. She meant it as he is someone she can rely on. And as we know she didn't rely on anyone in the past in that way. That's why it means he is special to her. I really hope that O Reum's rich oppa won't harm their relationship. I don't know exactly why Ba Reun is kneeling before him in the preview but it so painful to watch. 

 

As for jufge Han. Oh boy, he is flawed but yet so admirable and great human being. He taught O Rum and Ba Reun a very important lesson. Things they do as judges do have consequenses. But they are just humans who make mistakes. And yes, their choices may have a very bad impact on people but the sad and hard to swallow turth is that they are not infallible. 

 

I am really looking forward to the next episode.

With their workload, with their 'Job" , i have no idea how they can even think of love , let alone feel it....when would they have time , or desire ....working 12 hours a day does not lead to anything healthy , family or job, or romance or society or country.  This drama is really showing the poop that we are all pretending not to see so we can all pretend that we are living in good countries, and not like those poor refugees, or other 3rd world counties that we arrogantly refer to . I don't usually watch legal or murder dramas , i get nightmares , but i liked this drama because of this woman and her guts to have a go at cleaning the poop from the 'sacred institutions' that are full of it. I am glad this drama will soon be over , but what leaves a vile taste is the fear that since this was based on actual cases , what kind of collective vision did we create and aspire to.

Hello to everyone here~ I just want to drop by and say how I am truly loving this drama. Both Go Ara and L surprised me with their performance (especially L/Myungsoo). But what I truly like about this drama is how they make every character vulnerable and human. It makes you question if you should 100% be empathetic to a character or you should balance your judgment. This drama is not perfect and not ambitious but lowkey wants to show you the side A and B of a situation. 

 

The romance between the leads is cherry on top. I like how Judge Park is a straightforward woman but when it comes to expressing her love and emotion to Judge Im it seems like shes confessing to a crime that even a mere "You can trouble me" line troubled her. Lol. Then its very different with Judge Im like how he always calculate things before he acts but when it comes to Judge Park he will do things for her without thinking (like grabbing his coat faster and getting out of the office faster when he heard Judge Park is also at the night club hahahaha~).

 

There are some things that I dont like about Judge Park like she gets clouded by her judgment easily when it comes to the weak and the poor but there is Judge Im to make her realize things. Were down to last 4? episodes but I am not worried of how will this end cause I have faith with the writer and everyone.

 

Lastly, Judge Han is amazing I have no words to describe his character but that.

 

Lets all enjoy the last few episodes and cheer for all~

@distressdoll

I agree with your observations.   :)

 

Both Ba Reun and O Reum seemed to be careful about how they expressed their liking for each other. In Ba Reun's case, it's really touching to see how a strict no-nonsense judge (AI) can fall in love with the same woman since his high school days. He has been faithful with his feelings, from not knowing anything about her (just a crush) to seeing her fighting for the weak and the poor, having absolutely different qualities from him....to questioning himself about his belief as such and best of all, adjusting himself for the better of society and for her. 

 

For O Reum, I guess it's due to her past sexual harassment experience that she finds it hard to express herself where feelings is concerned. Like she said, she doesn't know when she started liking Ba Reun...as he's always there for her, he became her strength and feelings just came naturally because she had come to depend on him to regulate her emotions. The scene was pretty touching....until our cool guy said "Shall we get back to work!".... :D

That is really typical Im Ba Reun...lol.  O Reum is blessed to be the woman he likes so loyally. Ba Reun has a passionate woman who would fight for him, if need. Lol..

 

3 more episodes to go and I hope we'll have Season 2 with the lead couple, the second couple and more court battles on a bigger scale plus showcasing the characters' development, their families and the team of judges mentoring the younger judges. Wishful thinking?  :P

@jl08 Haha, you're right as usual :)

I think I can understand why your cool guy says "Shall we get back to work!". Remember, after saying "I will inconvenience you in the future", she adds "because you're my right-seat judge". Although it has a deep meaning, it's still formal haha.

For ones who always hunger for more romance between our OTP like me, I must say I'm pleased with ep13 :) . And I have to admit that L is so handsome and manly in white shirt. I'm breathless all the time :) 

It's interesting to see 2 girls with their different reactions. In the scene after 2 bad guys arrested by police, when OR says to BR that she's fine and everything OK, then DY says to BW that she's not OK and wants him taking her home. At first, I'm OK with what OR says, but after that, I wish she would say what DY says, then we would have what we want hahaha. Just kidding chingus.

Oh my, this is the first time in my working life, I wish Monday to come soon :)

@jl08 agree, I think shes become a little bit of hesitant when it comes to feelings and men because of her experience with that nasty piano teacher and our Judge Im is doing things right by taking it slow even though he already admitted his feelings towards her hahaha hes patient and loyal.

 

@oceluna0801 L/Myungsoo is handsome and I die everytime he flashes his dimple :wub: 

 

Love line might be slow but on a good way that I can still endure. :D

You just started working? hehe....

 

Yes, I agree that L in white shirt is a killer. It just makes him look so charismatic and handsome! His dimples are another set of killers....lol. He's doing great as I just saw him in a Jap magazine interview. 

I wish that both of them have a photoshoot for a magazine interview for Miss Hammurabi. It deserves to have publicity for the drama and the actors. I'm surprised that there is none so far, for them together. It's a popular and meaningful drama. 

 

I think the PD wants to showcase the romance of BaReum couple as a contrast to the wild love of the second couple to highlight the 2 different kinds of love. It fits their characters well though I also agree that if only our lead couple can be a little bit adventurous like the second couple! hehe...

 

I like the romance so far....slow, steady, laying the foundation and knowing that they'll be there for each other always. That's the psychological assurance of a couple - no matter what happens he/she will support me and protect me. I agree that the occasional touch (drunk scene on the steps), deep stare and show of concern and exchange of thoughts and guidance between Ba Reun and O Reum are more exciting and meaningful. Their growth together is remarkable and touching. If there's one such cool indifferent smart guy like Ba Reun out there who is a soft man inside, cherishing and loving his first love and protecting her so preciously.....all I can say is WOW!  :D

I believe that the case from this week will be used by YJ. Since the defendant was convicted and even tries to commit suicide (or commit suicide), NJ Group will use the media against the judges and OR will become the target. I sense that IBR decides to kneel down in front of YJ in order to protect OR. YJ will use the media against IBR and OR will be left spared. IBR might decide to change the department. That way, YJ ensures to get rid of a rival. But unfortunately for him, OR will discover the blackmail.

@bebebisous33

I  agree with your thoughts.  :)

 

As far as I understand Im Ba Reun's character, the one and only reason that he'll go down on his knees to that evil YJ is to protect O Reum who would be used as a scapegoat for the defendant's suicide. We know that he'll do anything for her, even signing that petition letter that he was initially  very much against. He also wanted to sign another letter about the other judge who accepted bribes where O Reum was approached. What more this time when it's more serious  and he can't bear to see O Reum being thrown to the devil's pit.

 

I hope it'll not turn too ugly because one episode they were confessing their feelings and the next episode, Ba Reun wants to leave O Reum alone. This PD ..... I am speechless.. lol.  I wish he's a fan of of this couple and  let good things befall on them instead.  But I can't hate the PD because he has a super sweet dialogue for my fav couple that goes like this:

 

"You are a beautiful man and a woman. You both look good together. You should date".   :D

 

The PD nim always looks at L and Ara fondly and I bet he's proud of their talent.

 

New bts....
