JTBC released today five character posters for its upcoming entirely pre-produced drama Miss Hammurabi which stars Go Ara (Black), Infinite idol L (Ruler: Master of the Mask), and Sung Dong-il (Prison Playbook). The series is based on a novel of the same name and is also written by the author of the original work, Moon Yoo-seok.
Miss Hammurabi is a legal human drama about three judges who oversee relatable and minor cases in court. Go Ara is playing a passionate rookie judge who dreams of a courthouse that protects the poor and fights those that oppress them. She possesses an energetic spirit and has a kind and charismatic personality as evident in the poster below that reads: “As for me, I’m not going to become a judge that looks down on people expressionlessly.”
INFINITE’s L, on one hand, seems to be playing a judge who cares more about his self than the people involved in court trials. His poster reads: “Court trials are by nature other people’s problems. I became a judge just to eat and survive.” He took the elite course to his position and is described as a realist and serious person who avoids making rash decisions.
Meanwhile, Sung Dong-il takes on the role of a realistic judge who entered in his judicial career later in life. As the oldest of the three main judge characters, he has a different perspective on life, saying in the poster that the strongest and most dangerous person in the court is the judge.
Character posters are also out for the two major supporting cast. Ryu Deok-hwan plays a friendly judge who is popular among women thanks to his job. His character poster reads: “Being a judge? It makes you popular among women!” Lee Elijah, meanwhile, plays a court stenographer whose character poster says: “If you’re in court, you might as well work. Don’t poke around in someone’s private life.” She seems serious in her work and avoids to become a nosy court worker as much as possible.
Miss Hammurabi is directed by PD Kwak Jung-hwan who helmed The K2 and The Slave Hunters. It will air on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning May 21, 2018.
