Watch: Ji Sung And GOT7’s Jinyoung Affectionately Tease Each Other In Poster Filming For “The Devil Judge”
“The Devil Judge” is a new drama set in an alternate dystopian Korea where the entire nation participates in a trial through a live broadcast courtroom show.
Asked to describe his character, Kang Yo Han, Ji Sung says, “He’s like a devil Batman. He has it all and he’s cool. I think the screenwriter got too greedy and gave him all sorts of appealing traits, so it’s very difficult to play him as an actor.”
Kim Min Jung plays Jung Sun Ah, Kang Yo Han’s greatest rival and the executive director of a CSR (corporate social responsibility) foundation. About the concept for her poster with Ji Sung, the actress said, “It shows what we think of the other. [Sun Ah] is above him and saying, ‘I have you in the palm of my hand.'” She adds, “Sun Ah and Yo Han are like twins of fate. Her true self isn’t revealed at first, so if you’re curious, please tune in!”
Ji Sung and GOT7’s Jinyoung share a playfully affectionate relationship on set, unlike their characters, who are in conflict. Jinyoung plays Kim Ga On, an associate judge to Kang Yo Han, who is a head judge. Ji Sung jokes that Jinyoung put a lot of effort into his appearance for the poster and teases, “It would be upsetting if I touched your hair, right?” Their poster has the two of them get right up in each other’s faces, and Ji Sung quips, “Closer! Like you’re leaning in for a kiss.” Jinyoung quips back, “‘The Devil Judge’ is actually a romance, right?”
Jinyoung also shows good chemistry with Park Gyu Young, who plays Kim Ga On’s longtime friend and police detective Yoon Soo Hyun. Park Gyu Young shares, “It’s really comfortable and fun to film with Jinyoung.
