Excited! I've been waiting and waiting for this drama! My favorite actors are here, I already mentioned I'm going to to be treated to excellent acting from the leads. I hope the younger actors deliver too. Perhaps will see breakthrough star.


My favs in this drama are leads. I'm happy.


Kim Moo Yeol from My Beautiful Bride and movies  always watch

Kim Hye Soo from Signal one the best  kdrama

Lee Sung Min from Misaeng.  I watch most of his dramas

Lee Jung Eun from many dramas I like.


As I mentioned previous page I've watch most all dramas of the director ( Her Private Life, Life, The Most Beautiful Goodbye, Live up to your Name, Dear My Friends, My Secret Hotel). But..I'm not familiar with the writer so I hope the writing and fluidity is good. This is courtroom drama and how deliquents are treated  as such.


Thanks larus for updates!

I watched the trailer this morning and will give this drama a shot!  I wasn't enthusiastic when I saw the name of the drama, but then again, I thought the name Hyena was off-putting and I ended up enjoying that drama much more than I expected.

"I was happy that the work came to me"... Kim Hye-soo talks about 'Juvenile Judgement'




The teaser poster for 'Juvenile Judgement', which completed the long-cherished story of up-and-coming writer Kim Min-seok from a balanced perspective by veteran director Hong Jong-chan, has released a teaser poster. 'Juvenile Judgment' is a Netflix series depicting the juvenile crimes that judge Shim Eun-seok, who 'has hatred' for juvenile offenders, faces when he is appointed to the juvenile department of the district court and the judges in charge of them.


Kim Hye-soo's choice of 'Juvenile Judgment', "a series that we have no choice but to ponder together"/Netflix


4 judges with different beliefs and opinions toward juvenile offenders appear in 'juvenile judgement'. Their different perspectives make us think about what our society really needs to do with juvenile offenders. Director Hong Jong-chan joined 'Boys' Judgment' four years after writer Kim Min-seok started the idea.

Director Hong Jong-chan, who has dealt with the story delicately, expressed the excitement he felt after seeing the script, saying, "After receiving the script, it will be difficult to meet such a project in the future. I thought I had to do it." “I came to think a lot that the story being dealt with in ‘Juvenile Judgment’ is not someone else’s problem, but rather a problem that is closely related to our surroundings, where I can become the parent of the perpetrator or victim one day.” Using the different perspectives and beliefs of the four judges, we ask the inevitable questions of what we have been doing and what we can do about juvenile crime and reality.


The teaser poster with a strong black and white contrast and a red title makes us curious about the stories they will tell us with the different atmospheres of several juvenile offenders and four judges with different expressions. Kim Hye-soo, who plays Judge Shim Eun-seok, who does not hesitate to say that she hates juvenile criminals, said, “I was surprised that such a story could be written. It was nice to think that it was a series that viewers had no choice but to ponder together, and I was happy that the work came to me,” she said when she first encountered the scenario.


Kim Moo-yeol, who plays Judge Cha Tae-joo, who looks at juvenile criminals with a different temperature from Shim Eun-seok, said, "I was naturally drawn to this story because I was interested in it. I liked the purpose of the work, so I wanted to do it together."  Lee Seong-min, who played Chief Judge Kang Won-jung, explained why he had no choice but to participate in the work, saying, "'Judgment of Boys' was a work that sought a more active and specific solution. . Lee Jung-eun, who plays Na Geun-hee, another judge with a bitter personality, said, "It was nice as an actor that a work that could capture the image of the times of the society we are facing came out as an actor."

Judge Kim Hye-soo commands the courtroom in Netflix’s Juvenile Justice

by tccolb




Netflix drama Juvenile Justice is gearing up to be quite the think piece, delving deep into society’s differing views on juvenile crimes and how they should be approached.


Centered around a district court house, the drama presents a harsh perspective through our lead character Kim Hye-soo (Hyena). She believes that even if they’re young, perpetrators must learn to respect the law and be held accountable for their crimes. In contrast, Kim Mu-yeol (Grid) wants to show compassion. Taking the perpetrators’ youth and circumstances into consideration, he prefers to be understanding and give offenders the opportunity to right their wrongs.

As head of the court house, though, Lee Sung-min (Money Game) has to keep the bigger picture in mind, and often leans towards “practical” solutions that will wrap up the case. Lee Jung-eun (Law School), on the other hand, has become somewhat desensitized to juvenile crimes over the years and tends to think lightly of them.


The newly released teaser opens with Kim Hye-soo sitting at her desk and going over case notes. As we watch the police arrest the young perpetrator, we hear the news report in voiceover. In court, Kim Hye-soo is alarmed by the boy’s laughter and it further supports why she hates juvenile crime. Kim Mu-yeol, however, is more upset by Kim Hye-soo’s attitude and confronts her about it afterwards. Kim Hye-soo firmly defends her view and takes it a step further by actively seeking young offenders potentially involved in her case. Lee Sung-min reprimands her for crossing the line into police duties, and Lee Jung-eun agrees that Kim Hye-soo is being extreme. Upset, Kim Hye-soo argues that the importance of the law — and its consequences — need to be taught.

We then jump to Kim Mu-yeol’s perspective and through the accompanying montage, we see the vulnerability of youth. Kim reasons that judges are positioned to help juvenile offenders and can give them a chance to better themselves. Kim Hye-soo isn’t easily convinced, though, and we see the examples of youth cruelty in the sequence that follows. After quick close-ups of the four main characters, the teaser comes to a close with Kim Hye-soo and Kim Mu-yeol standing in an empty court room. Kim Mu-yeol questions what happens after the young offenders have served the sentences she gave them, and Kim Hye-soo replies ominously that she’ll show him.


Written by Kim Min-seok and directed by PD Hong Jong-chan (Life, Dear My Friends), Netflix original Juvenile Justice drops February 25.

Kim Hye Soo, Kim Moo Yeol, Lee Sung Min, And Lee Jung Eun Transform Into Very Different Judges For Upcoming Legal Drama



Feb 16, 2022
by L. Kim

Netflix has released new stills of its upcoming drama “Juvenile Justice” (literal title)!

“Juvenile Justice” is a legal drama that takes place when a prickly judge who hates juvenile offenders is newly appointed to the juvenile court of the Yeonhwa District. The judge, who was a victim of a juvenile crime before, will face various cases involving youth and discover what it truly means to be an adult.

On February 16, the drama unveiled its first glimpse of Kim Hye Soo, Kim Moo Yeol, Lee Sung Min, and Lee Jung Eun in character!

Kim Hye Soo plays Shim Eun Seok, a judge in the juvenile court of the Yeonhwa District. She is someone with charismatic eyes and a rough personality who is fierce enough to be considered arrogant. She has a competitive streak, which helped her push past her male colleagues to reach the top. The photo captures Shim Eun Seok’s firm resolve to punish those who committed crimes.



On the other hand, Kim Moo Yeol plays a judge named Cha Tae Joo who overcame the hardships of a poor environment and became a judge after taking the high school qualification exam (the Korean equivalent of a GED). Cha Tae Joo is 180 degrees different from Shim Eun Seok. Unlike her, he is a firm believer in second chances. He believes that people can change for the better if their stories are heard. The photo of Cha Tae Joo reflects his warm, gentle eyes that share a peek at his kind and patient nature.



In the next still, Lee Sung Min has transformed into the charismatic Kang Won Joong. He is a chief judge who values customs and principles. He has been a member of the juvenile court for 22 years now, and he is a person who realistically thinks about the boundaries of laws. He often gets into conflict with Shim Eun Seok, who crosses the line as a judge.




Lee Jung Eun showcases chief judge Na Geun Hee’s coldness in the following still. Na Geun Hee has a soft way of speaking, but she has an icy, fierce personality, and she deals with juvenile crimes in a practical and efficient way. She believes speed is the most important, so she has tense confrontations with Shim Eun Seok who persistently digs into cases.




Writer Kim Min Seok, who wanted to “present various views and opinions toward juvenile offenders through four judges,” makes viewers look at juvenile crimes from diverse perspectives through judges who sharply collide because of their own beliefs.

Kim Hye Soo commented, “Since all of these characters’ beliefs are comprehensible, I looked forward to their harmony. I was very surprised that each judge’s aspect of unity and conflict seemed to be organically well harmonized.”
