“The Devil Judge” is set in an alternate-universe, dystopian version of Korea where the entire nation participates in a trial through a live broadcast courtroom show. This system is the brainchild of Kang Yo Han (Ji Sung), a head judge with mysterious intentions that raise the question: Is he a hero of the people in a world filled with chaos, or is he a devil who wears the mask of the law? Meanwhile, Jung Sun Ah (Kim Min Jung) is the director of a corporate social responsibility foundation, but behind her friendly facade is a power-hungry woman with close ties to powerful politicians. Associate judge Kim Ga On (GOT7‘s Jinyoung) and police officer Yoon Soo Hyun (Park Gyu Young) step into picture and begin a quest to find true justice.
