Ji Sung takes on another iconic character with The Devil Judge.
tvN’s new weekend series The Devil Judge is set in a dystopian version of Korea where people harbor hatred towards their leaders. In such a society, trials are held through a courtroom live show aired on television.
Ji Sung recalled the moment he first met The Devil Judge. “I wanted to look back on the justice of the present day through the series,” he shared.
The actor then introduced the fictional element in his work, similar to the one in “Batman,” as one of its attractive features. About his character Kang Yohan, Ji Sung explained, “He may be an unrealistic character, but I was attracted to such aspect. I wanted to know more about Yohan’s life and the pain in his life.”
Kang Yohan is a judge whose action falls somewhere between evil and good. Ji Sung added, “I wanted to find and express a different side of me with a character that I’ve never played before.”
Finally, Ji Sung showed his affection for The Devil Judge. “Our work offers a variety of interesting perspectives, so I hope you watch it from the premiere,” he said. “Exploration acting technique gives me pleasure. I want to show a new side of me with this series.”
