Kim Hye Soo will be expanding her territory into Netflix.
On Nov 23, Netflix confirmed the production of Juvenile Judgement (literal title) and has cast Kim Hye Soo to play the main character Shim Eun Seok. Juvenile Judgement 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.
Juvenile Judgement revolves around the issues of the juvenile law, which states that minors under the age of 14 are subject to protective disposition, not punishment. It will point out the juvenile crimes that have reached a dangerous level, the adults surrounding them, and the responsibilities that society should take sharply.
Kim Hye Soo plays Shin Eun Seok, an intelligent elite judge with a prickly personality. She will break down the “familiar customs” after being appointed to a court with the highest juvenile crime rate. She will send a heavy message to society by making unexpected sentences.
Live Up to Your Name and Dear My Friends director Hong Jong Chan will direct this upcoming Netflix original series, and writer Kim Min Seok will pen the script. Gil Pictures, best known for Hot Stove League, and GTist, best known for Hotel Del Luna, will co-produce the drama.
