Juvenile Justice

Juvenile Justice

Starring: Kim Hye-Soo, Kim Mu-Yeol

I don’t particularly like to watch shows where kids are subjected to violence, and that too when it is based on real life incidents. However, this one I picked up because I had yet not watched a drama starting with J, and also because I have started enjoying courtroom dramas of late.

Judge Shim Eun-Seok has a cold and distant personality and she absolutely detests juvenile criminals. She metes them out the harshest punishments and most minor offenders dread coming to her court. However, on the other hand, she also goes out of her way to protect kids, even if they have been minor offenders in the past.

What I learnt from this show that juvenile court handles two types of cases – one where crimes are purported on minors and the second where crimes are committed by minors.

I appreciate the way the show has been treated, they have tried to be as authenticate as possible, the parts where young girls are beaten becomes a little tough for me to handle, and I ended up fast forwarding those scenes. I thought it to be more of a courtroom drama than behind the scenes investigation, but the lead actor Kim Hye-Soo’s portrayal of a cold and fearless judge is brilliant.

Watch this show if you can accept the fact that minors can commit heinous crimes and many of them are absolutely nonchalant and unrepentant about their acts.
