The Devil Judge is possibly one of the most highly anticipated dramas airing in the month of July! The star-studded cast includes Ji Sung, GOT7's Park Jin Young, Kim Min Jung and Park Gyu Young. It's set in an alternate universe in dystopian Korea where the nation participates in a trial broadcasted live from a courtroom - mixing law, crime and mystery all in one drama.

Kang Yo Han (Ji Sung) is a head judge with no mercy for criminals, who turns the courtroom into a reality show, thus earning him the nickname "Devil Judge". However, he conceals his true identity, making the public wonder if he is a hero or someone with malicious intent. Kim Ga On (Park Jin Young) is an associate judge who pursues justice in a dystopian society and grows suspicious of Kang Yo Han's true intentions. Jung Sun Ah (Kim Min Jung) is Kang Yo Han's nemesis and Yoon Soo Hyun (Park Gyu Young) is a police officer who has had a crush on Kim Ga On since young.
