“The Devil Judge” Co-Stars Ji Sung And Kim Min Jung Share What It’s Like To Work Together Again After 13 Years
“The Devil Judge” takes place in an alternate-universe dystopian Korea where the entire nation participates in a live broadcast courtroom show. Ji Sung stars as the titular “devil judge,” Kang Yo Han, and Kim Min Jung plays Jung Sun Ah, his nemesis and the executive director of the social responsibility foundation. Is Kang Yo Han a hero of the people in chaotic times or is he a devil who wears the mask of the law?
One of the reasons fans are looking forward to this drama is because of Ji Sung and Kim Min Jung’s teamwork. The two are reuniting for the first time in 13 years since they starred in the 2007-2008 MBC drama “New Heart” together. Ji Sung and Kim Min Jung took the time to directly share their thoughts about their chemistry and teamwork.
First off, Ji Sung commented, “I first worked with actress Kim Min Jung in the drama ‘New Heart.’ I was so happy filming it that I still remember it as a precious work to this day. I’m so thrilled to reunite with my colleague whom I starred in that drama with that it’s not enough to just say ‘it’s nice to see you again.'”
Kim Min Jung shared, “It’s been 13 years since we’ve worked together, but surprisingly enough, both of us didn’t feel like it’s been that long. Since this is our second drama together, we experience a synergy effect when we act together.”
Ji Sung then said, “My teamwork with Kim Min Jung is so great that it doesn’t need a long explanation. I was able to act while trusting and relying on her as a partner, and thanks to that, I could film with ease. Personally, I hope our chemistry can give ‘The Devil Judge’ a good synergy.” Kim Min Jung added, “I’m really grateful to Ji Sung.”
“The Devil Judge” premieres on July 3 at 9 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
