[Drama 2019] Justice, 저스티스

Recommended Posts

 

Finished the first  two episodes. I knew it! I knew it I knew I knew! I damnn well knew it! 

 

SWY wanted YCK out of prison because he knows too much. SWY could be the mastermind behind the the murder of the actress. He asked YCK to murder the actress but then there was a witness the delivery boy.. who happens to be LTK younger brother. who was ringing the doorbell but got suspicious as no one was answering.  YCK saw clearly the face when he looked into video doorbel.  YCK also knew that the delivery boy was LTK younger brother. TK surprised  YCK knew. Of course SWY is the master  YCK following. 

 

Also YCK knew who is JYJ. She was the one who raped by the assemblyman's son  who got away with rape  because "scumbag" LTK defended th rapist son. Even though he knew ( of course he knows but still..argh!  victim blaming!) I really hate his character.

 

SYA prosecutor ( Nana's character)  stumbled at the connection of LTK younger brother as the delivery boy who could be witness to YCK murdering the actress. LTK found out and is trying to dig the connections. Got all CCTV and check and saw. Seven years ago JYJ a senior in high school  got a package delivered  by the younger brother LTK which in turn she handed over to YCK. aAfter looking at the footages he went to JYJ house to confront her (OMG! after what  you said to her being smug and all that..knowing she was raped..argh! you really are scumbag!)  of course she doesn't to talk told him to ask YCK himself and to not bother her.  Told him he's a scumbug. Hence.....

 

 I am going to give LTK benefit of doubt here it's only the first two episodes. He might have something planned hence he is acting like... yeah.... scumbag.

 

But also in one of the drunke flashback of LTK... scene of bloody murder  there were drugs and food and wine and family all sprawled on th floor covered with blood. The mother, father and a son which if you've seen.. the fingers twitch  beside the bloody knife. And SWY looking outside the window behind the curtain to man walking away from the crime on a snowy night and I think it's LTK. That flashback's continuation is the first scene of episode one where SWY gave malk whisky to bloody LTK and said to "enjoy the price of this deal".

 

And for more veiled ambiguity LTK went to the cemetery visited the grave of his younger brother and was leaving he brushed past the  gyoung man dressed in all black who also visited the cemetery and stood in front of grave of the younger brother. LTK deep in thought didn't even bother to look back so he didn't see.   LTK knew his brother was killed in DUI accidented ( shown in flashback) but that happened the day after the murder of the actress. SYA already got the feeling  it wasn't an accident and it has to do with murders with SYW is involved

 

SYA to LTK:  "You're an idiot, defending a guy who may have murdered your brother".

 

By the way YCK was released despite th charges because  prosecutor was change, judge change..all with the power of SYW- even the politicians bow to him and agreed to his demands.

 

His moral consience??? or  desire to know the truth?  He followed YCK saw the driver of SWY pick him , LTK parked his car, hidden on the side and saw YCK came out of SWY house. Once the car drove away.. he went inside the house and told SWY he can't get hold of YCK and ask where he could be.  HA! so now do you get it LTK???

 

That's the end scene  for ep 2.   Like I said I'm going to  give LTK a chance to see if he will change, if he has something up his sleeves or his attitude is like that because  he has to act to conceal the true nature of how he's going to avenge his brother's death. Remember he said it's DUI.. but is it really DUI?

 

So in conclusion. I enjoyed the ambiguity of the drama. This has that  "Money Flower" vibes! If you've seen that excellent drama from MBC you'll know what I mean. Choi Jin Hyuk's character  feels like that of Jang Hyuk's character. 

 

I hope this post helps a little to those who were confused about the episodes.

after watching the second episode thinks looks more clear to me now. the murder scene confused me first but all is clear now.

 

SWY is real evil. why he want to keep LTK close? to keep him not knowing the hole truth or is there something else?

Really like this drama so far, I thought the first 2 eps was way more suspenseful and well executed (better than Watcher) imo. I know SWY is the mastermind behind everything but the top prosecutors is definitely involved as well. It's one big giant corruption, can't wait to LTK turn good and expose him!

At first, I was confused by the fast moving plot but the second day eps cleared my confusions after all!!! :)

 

Mostly I think that Song Woo-Yong doesn't fully trust Yang Chul-Ki even though he worked for him!!!! And Yang Chul-Ki himself could be in danger as he's got a lovely wife & son!!!! And Lee Tae-Kyung seems to noted that his hyung has interactions with the thug!! But I still try to figure it out about Lee Tae-Kyung... He is still a kind of bad guy who's teamed up with the devil!!! :( But he must be having his reasons to act harsh!!! 

 

And so far, I like the phase of the series & looking forward for the upcoming eps...! Both Choi Jin Hyuk & Nana are doing their characters so well!!! Is there really romance involved here guys..????!!! :) Then I will love this drama even more... :kiss_wink:

Thank you everybody for the comments.  It’s good to read highlights and questions and reactions.  As this is a first week and different things were strewn down,  it’s easy to miss out and get confused.  
 
At the beginning  I thought Seo Yeon-A(Nana) would be the one who was straight and clean.  But when she was ready to frame Yang Chul-Ki, I had to wonder about the meaning of Justice in this drama.  Maybe justice and injustice aren’t just black and white here.  Maybe there are many shades of justice because of how people perceive and act on it.

 

SWY decided to become the devil because he thought the power was the only means to fight back for injustice done against his family. LTK made a bargain with the devil SWY for his brother’s death.  Now SYA acted to frame YCK in the name of justice.  
So this bad YCK turned out to be a family man with a son who loves him.    And it was chilling to see how SWY used YCK’s weak spot.  
Now I’m curious whether LTK killed those three men or not.   If he really did, I have to guess, in kdrama land,  his redemption has to be death or imprisonment?!!  

 

He looks like a dark angel ^_^^_^

@booha thanks for all the updates ..hv been  on drama overload , and wishing I had more time in the day for drama watching. 

 

Love the 1st episode .  I’m a sucker for dark characters & twisted souls finding their way back to the straight & narrow . I’m very happy CJH took this on because I can foresee it will be a very meaty role. I am actually surprised that this drama is from KBS , felt a lot more like something OCN would churn out . 

 

 I think if you’re expecting a straight up good guy sort of hero , you’d be disappointed. Cause when TK was defending the chaebol Son in the 1st case , you will really want to slap him :lol:. But he’s doing what a lawyer needs to do - defend his client & bring about an outcome in the client’s favour . Using so called dirty  tricks , manipulating perceptions , turning black into white - this  is why TK is known in the industry as being such an ace lawyer. The thing is if you’re gonna defend scumbags like that you’ll hv to detach yourself from your own values & ethics , and focus on winning the case no matter the means. The rewards & incentives are massive, and it seems TK is well compensated for it and material things can help numb one’s conscience.

 

However towards   the end of the 1st hour, it’s clear that TK isn’t unfeeling. On the surface , he’s decided that this is how he will live life enjoying the fruits of his labour . But the drinking  , vomiting at the club and the visit to his brother’s  memorial show a man struggling with his own choices & decisions. The cliffhanger at the end upon discovering his brother is a victim of the case will be the beginning of his journey to redemption. 

 

A lot of things are unclear at to what happened in TK’s seemingly murky past & how “Hyung “ saved him but there are hints that the construction tycoon had a hand in the brother’s death & may have manipulated TK . But all these are mere speculations after the 1st hour . Let’s see how my perceptions will change after eps 2

 

waves @gm4queen @joccu . @jongski Thanks for the recaps !

Well, this is my first official K-drama of Choi Jin Hyuk & I am so impressed by his acting here... :) He is a tall, handsome & charismatic young guy!!! I love being young... :D And his chemistry with Nana is awesome!!! :heart: I find them very comfortable with each other!!!! And if they fall in love, I'd be the happiest for the twosome as I love dark romance!!! :blush:

 

And aww.... Mr. Choi Jin Hyuk is so eye candy... images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRM3lrdsbSooauoC0Q8obHqHg-fC0ozAlA9OEwXfNlDqYkLk9jU7A images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRM3lrdsbSooauoC0Q8obHqHg-fC0ozAlA9OEwXfNlDqYkLk9jU7A images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRM3lrdsbSooauoC0Q8obHqHg-fC0ozAlA9OEwXfNlDqYkLk9jU7A Looking forward to see him more in action!!!! :)

Basically, we had the foundation for the characters in the first week. So I expect to go more deep down with each character this week!!! :) I am still confused over the dark past of Lee Tae Kyung!!! As many chingus here said, he's doing it all against his will!!! :sweatingbullets: What's the real reason behind him for teaming up with the devil..???! I can't wait to find out!!! :thumbsup:

 

And dear @triplem chingu, so lovely to see you here... :) Yes, please watch the 2nd hour & spill the beans here!!! Somehow I liked the 2nd hour more than the 1st hour of this series!!! And you are so right!!! Viewers say that it's too early for KBS to air another crime, thriller right after Doctor Prisoner ended!!! But I love KBS dramas as they are filled with both sorrow & joy at the same time.... :heart:

** Now  LTK and SYA begin to investigate separately on YCK and the murder of an actress.   It means at some point they will work together and maybe they might reconnect their old relationship.  When LTK heard about the death of the detective, SYA’s mentor, his reaction showed he still had feelings for her.  I hope to see more interacting friction between them.  
SYA’s dad is on the character list. Wondering whether he will be a good character as the character description describes or maybe he has secrets in the closet??

 

@triplem

Yes I’m happy LTK hasn’t completely lost his soul/conscience.  His struggle with himself will give him another chance with SYA  and hopefully she might help him to see a different perspective about his choice.   It seems LTK’s relationship with SWY isn’t just about boss-subordinate.  LTK calls him ‘hyung.’ He must be emotionally connected  with SWY.    So it will be interesting to see how their relationship will progress as things unfold.

** CJH always acts reserved in a public space so it’s delightful to see how he acted with his staff.  This staff must carry a heavy load  of baggage and has a muscle cramp so CJH jumped into to help her with a hand massage then elbow rubbing.  haha   So convenient in this kind of situation when you are working for someone who is tall  haha  :P

Hello dear friend.... :) To be honest, I've watched Choi Jin Hyuk in Fated To Love You & The Last Empress... But he was most likely the second lead in both the dramas, wasn't he..????! So I am rather glad that he's the first lead here!!! That's what I meant earlier!!! This is my first official lead role of him & I just love his performance so far!! :heart: So I am eagerly looking forward to explore more about his character!!! 

 

And yes, I also heard that Tunnel is very good!!! And he's one of the main leads there, isn't he..??!! :) Should try it when I get free time... Thanks a lot for the recommendation!!! :kiss_wink:

Hum yes I can see SYA’s dad is a good guy   but SYA’s investigation could lead to corrupt upper level people who could threaten her dad’s nomination, and  SYA might be forced to make a decision about her investigation.    At the beginning I wasn’t sure how much interaction LTK and SYA would have.   But since they still have feelings for each other,  hopefully we will see more of their push-pull  interactions.   Now according to the latest article there would be a triangle relationship among LTK, SYA and SWY, and not just for LTK and SWY.  

 

 

@gm4queen

So delighted to read your comment about JHssi. Very appreciated  Made my day so much sweeter 4cgR7ny.gif 
I enjoyed Tunnel, as it has a lot of  touching and heartwarming scenes for the characters, even though the drama is a crime thriller  Sometimes I was so much into the characters’ predicament  that I forgot about finding a villain. :unsure:

** Frustrated to see how LTK fumbled with the recovery of his brother’s phone. He needs to bang his head hard.  He might be an ace lawyer but he is an amateur detective.  He really needs to work with SYA and her detective.

@gm4queen @booha I hv only managed to finish the 2nd hour . Eps 3  , I’ll watch tonight.

But what a great 2nd eps since I was stressed all the way .:D  Everytime TK confides in Chairman  Song , I was frustrated because Tk has been manipulated Long enough & was playing into Song’s hands . But TK , thankfully has good instincts and made sure to keep tabs on Yang - so at least he knows now that Song has a hidden agenda and he should not fully trust the him. 

So some  observations / questions

1. Song had his sights set on recruiting TK from the time his brother’s case was being tried . So he’s groomed TK for a while now . He approached TK because it was the best way to cover up the real truth to the brother’s death. And in the process or from background digging , finds that TK’s talent will be of use to him. 

 

2. It caught my attention that he said to his aide that TK is perfect for the job  because he still has a soul . This to me shows that TK’s conscience ( and humanity )  are both his strength and weakness , to which Song is fully exploiting. 

 

3. Seo & TK has some history btwn them . Not sure if it’s romantic. But I’m likely guessing they went to the same law school & knew him well to be able to say how he’s changed & she was slightly hurt he didn’t tell her about the Brother.

 

4. Who is Song burying in the construction site ? Some reporter wanting to expose the murder from 7 years ago ? 

 

5. The show is trying to imply that TK had a hand in the deaths of the young men supposedly responsible for his brother’s death. ( possible red herring )

Finally, just finished watching yesterday's eps & I am pretty much impressed by Choi Jin Hyuk's choice this time! He is outstanding in his role!! :heart: The phase of the story is also strong enough for making me attracted to the series! :) And I think I am all catched up with the cast & their roles..... So would like to spill some of the pin points I've noticed.!!. 

 

1. There are plenty of rain scenes in each ep. Then the pouring rain must have a lead to all the cases happened so far, such as the murder is either fond or hate the rain so he did all the murders amidst the rain. 

 

photo-1501999635878-71cb5379c2d8?ixlib=r

 

2. Yang Chul Ki doesn't trust Mr. Song at all. He's afraid that Mr. Song would be after his wife & son so he sent them away & then he died or killed..????!! :sweatingbullets: And now how would Tae Kyung find out the truth of his brother..??!

 

And when his phone rang inside the locker, Tea Kyung should grab it in his hands in the first place. But instead he ran after Chul Ki!! I find this as a moment where Tae Kyung lost his smart act!! I think Tae Kyung is in a dilemma whether to trust his so--called hyung!! And when Mr. Song lift up the statue at the ending scene, I immediately hunched that he'd hit the phone with it!! Then exactly the same thing happened!!! Is he a psycho that he is providing evidence to Tae Kyung with..??? Wow!!! This is so interesting! :ph34r: :o Wanna know where it leads them, the hyung & dongseng duo..!

 

maxresdefault.jpg?v=506ae32f

 

3. Mr. Song was obviously building a miniature model of his new construction building. But then he just crashed it to the ground! Then does it mean that he'll soon be in the downfall.??! Then a hero should arise his voice. Lee Tae Kyung!!!!! :)

 

And by the way, why did Mr. Song hire Tae Kyung anyway..????! It can't be only to cover up the truth of his brother's death!!! Something is fishy here :sweatingbullets:

The thing is if TK was less emotional , he would not have run after Yang and instead figured out a way to open the locker/ break the code. Scumbag Yang was no ordinary thug of course - he knew how it would cause TK to lose his judgement and cool since it is related to his brother.  And I think this is TK's weakness that Song is exploiting. TK still  has a soul - those were Song's words. A man with a soul is vulnerable , and I suppose TK  would make emotional rash decisions which from Song's perspective makes him ( TK) easier to  control and predict.

 

The challenge for TK is that Song knows him too well. The latter gave me chills in the way he read TK. Even though TK tried to hide it from Song and also did some calculated moves ( especially during the 2nd time when he did not go meet Yang but went to the bar knowing that Song saw the money in his office) , Song still outplayed him . The end of eps 3 was so unexpected- Song and TK's relationship is now irrevocably changed . It can no longer be nice and chummy like before. TK will always have suspicion that Song is the mastermind behind the bro's death. Song will not fully trust TK either and will keep close tabs on TK's every move. TK is deeply entangled in Song's game that I wonder how is he going to get out of this web? Very interesting plot going forward.

 

Who is that guy who visited the brother's memorial? He had a short scene taking pictures on the beach.  And there was a new young actor introduced in the preview- is that Song's son?

@triplem

I like your point about TK’s behavior in the locker place.  If TK’s Achille is his brother who is dead, then hearing his bro’s ring tone would create too much emotional upheaval to think rationally.  This scene was a glimpse into TK’s behaviors right after bro’s death and the trial.   You are right.  Song saw TK’s emotional rage in the court room and he knew TK was vulnerable so he trapped TK  with the idea of revenge.    
I like “A man with a soul is vulnerable” (as a soul can be one’s conscience)    Now that explains how Song has been able to control  TK for the last seven years.
I really enjoyed today’s episode.   Your comment helps me see the kind of tangled relationship  between Song and TK, and how Song controls and why TK stays around him.  
Todays’ episode showed Song was able to manipulate TK so skillfully that TK decided to believe Song’s version.  :sweatingbullets::sweatingbullets: 
PS I think the boy who went to visit TK’s bro memorial site could be Song’s son.

PS The guy whom Song was burying looks like the internet reporter who sold some info to Song earlier?? 

 

We have a new character.  He might be a new villain, as bad as Song??

@booha The mind control that Song has over TK is frightening but  after last night's episode , I have a feeling that TK does not completely trust Song anymore. The solo drinking at the club, the flashbacks , recalling SYA's words to him about Song - deep down he knows darn well that Song had a hand in his brother's death . But this is not the time to leave Song nor make any drastic moves .

 

For me , Song is not actually controlling him with money or power , but guilt. Seven years ago, Song indeed sold him the idea of revenge , and finished the job in front of TK's eyes. Psychologically it was impossible then for TK to leave Song nor refuse to do his bidding, because Song had thrown the ball in TK's park - I do this for you.  TK was possibly at his lowest - grieving, angry , let down by the law but Song comes in and serves justice . A twisted sense of justice no doubt but Song has already planted the seed that those boys deserved it . TK was faced with two choices. Cover the deaths up and side with the devil , or report Song and TK becomes an accomplice to murder. For a powerless and penniless TK the former path isn't such a bad thing - he had nothing more to lose and materially he has much to gain. Plus walking away -then and now -  would seem ungrateful to a man who had avenged his brother .

 

I like SYA more and more. I was wondering if they played her character a little bit too cool initially as if she had something to prove. But as the episodes progressed, she is the only person willing and unafraid to get to the bottom of things.So it seems there is some romantic history between the two , considering how much Song is concerned that TK is not over her. I also wonder about her father . On surface or at least based on what we've been shown he seems upright and against businessmen lobbying with the officers of the law.  But from every political and legal drama I have seen , SK's corruption within these systems seem so systemic and deep rooted, that I wonder if he has any skeletons in the closet. Not to mention that "student'' of his, the vice chairman of Jungin Group is a wolf in sheep's clothing. 

 

What I think will be Song's downfall is his son. Every person has a weakness , his  kryptonite so to speak. From the son's visit to TK's brother's memorial stone, I have a feeling that he is not happy with what dad has done.
