On March 20, tvN legal drama Confession released new still images featuring Lee Joon-ho, and Shin Hyun-bin, and Nam Gi-ae who are playing a trio of good guys working together to win cases in court.
Lee Joon-ho plays prosecutor Choi Do-hyun, whose name is evident on the nameplate on his desk shown in the still below. The latest promotional material shows Choi busy working intently on something using his laptop. From the looks of things, he seems a very neat person who likes to keep things properly organized. On the surface, he appears cold but he has actually a friendly and caring personality.
Shin Hyun-bin is essaying the role of Ha Yoo-ri, a journalist and Choi Do-hyun’s friend. In her photo, she is wearing a hoodie and headphones, listening to something. Described as the ‘Queen of Legwork’ in Choi’s office, she has a penchant for noticing details that others tend to miss.
Meanwhile, Nam Gi-ae plays an office assistant named Jin Yeo-sa. In the still below, she is shown standing beside a desk and smiling at Choi. She is a jack of all trades who knows a bit of everything from web design to medicine. Her reasons for working under Choi are unknown, lending a mysterious aura to her character.
Confession deals with the rule of double jeopardy in the Korean criminal code. In most countries observing this rule, a person cannot be tried twice for the same crime based on the same conduct, following a valid acquittal or conviction. This rule poses a challenge particularly to Choi Do-hyun, whose father is on death row for a crime he did not commit.
The series will premiere on March 23.
