GOT7’s Jinyoung courted for tvN’s upcoming legal drama alongside Ji Sung

K-pop boy group GOT7’s vocalist Park Jin-young, better known as just Jinyoung, is considering joining the cast of tvN’s upcoming drama The Devil Judge.

The Devil Judge (literal title) is a legal drama about a judge who turns his court into a reality show in order to punish evil, and an associate judge who wants to find out his identity.

On August 13, the production team of The Devil Judge revealed that Park Jin-young had been offered a role in the drama and was reviewing the offer. Jinyoung made his acting debut in 2012 with a supporting role in Dream High 2. Since then, he has established himself as a successful idol-actor with acclaimed performances in He Is Psychometric (2019) and When My Love Blooms (2020).

Previously, actor Ji Sung was revealed to be considering the lead role in the drama. Ji Sung is best known for his roles in Kill Me, Heal Me (2015) and Defendant (2017). He was last seen in 2019’s Doctor John. If both actors agree to their offers, this will be their first time working together.

The Devil Judge is created by South Korean judge-turned-screenwriter Moon Yoo-seok, who also penned 2018’s Miss Hammurabi. It will be directed by Choi Jung-kyu, who directed 2018’s Children of Nobody, and is scheduled to air sometime in 2021.
