Juvenile Justice depicts the story of a judge who has to balance her aversion to young offenders as she tackles complex cases inside a juvenile court. This series made headlines when it confirmed its stellar cast, including Kim Hye Soo, Kim Mu Yeol, Lee Sung Min, and Lee Jung Eun.

The released character posters capture the different views of the judges toward the juvenile offenders and the intense expressions of the juvenile offenders. Shim Eun Seok (Kim Hye Soo) becomes a newly appointed judge of a juvenile court. However, she doesn’t hesitate to hide her aversion towards them with the phrase, “I detest juvenile offenders.”

On the other hand, it seems like Chae Tae Joo (Kim Mu Yeol) has a different perspective from Shin Eun Seok. Kang Won Joong (Lee Sung Min) and Na Geun Hee (Lee Jung Eun) raise curiosity with their unclear expressions. The juvenile offenders’ expressions that look even more intense in black-and-white also catch the eye.

The teaser released together begins in a juvenile court where a boy is being tried. He smirks as he mentions the law that doesn’t allow kids under 14 to go to prison. As Shim Eun Seok says, “That’s why I despise you guys. Because you never change,” the many cases involving juvenile offenders flash by. The phrase that reads, “How dare you commit a crime at a young age,” draws attention to what kind of punishment she’ll give to these young offenders that neither repent nor feel guilty for what they’ve done.

Juvenile Justice deals with juvenile crimes and stories about the young offenders, raising attention to the reality of our society and the direction to be taken. Live Up to Your Name and Dear My Friends director Hong Jong Chan helms the production.

Meanwhile, Juvenile Justice will be released on Netflix on February 25th.
