We released some amazing k-dramas this month. With the last week of February 2022 underway, another k-drama is about to take over screens. The legal thriller and drama “Juvenile Justice” will finally be released last week. Unlike many previous lawyer-focused k-dramas, “Juvenile Justice” will be a little different. As the name suggests, the k-drama will focus on the underage delinquents in society. The trailer for the show is already out and the fans are waiting for the episodes to be released soon. From casting to plot, here’s everything you need to know about “Juvenile Justice.”
The story of the upcoming k-drama will follow elite judge Sim Eun Sook. The judge is cold, asocial and prefers to keep things to herself. One thing Judge Eun Sook hates the most is a minor offender. And with the crimes committed by minors becoming violent over time, that baffles her. To avoid trouble at all costs, Eun Sook is assigned to the local juvenile court for the new session. With control in her hands, Eun Sook is determined to punish those who deserve it, regardless of age.
