Looks like cable network jTBC is also jumping on the legal drama trend, as if there wasn’t a surfeit of such dramas over in the big three networks already. jTBC has picked up the K-drama adaptation of novel Miss Hammurabi chronicling the judicial legal profession. Sounds a lot like Nothing to Lose (Judge v. Judge) where all the leads are judges. The drama has confirmed the casting of Go Ara, Infinite‘s L (Kim Myung Soo), and veteran Sung Dong Il, with the drama being pre-produced with a scheduled airing in May. I remained very disappointed with Go Ara especially after Black, where even Song Seung Heon showed vast improvement and she was firmly rooted in basic acting expressions 101. Having her play a passionate idealistic judge in Miss Hammurabi sounds like a recipe for eager overacting, not to mention L is way to baby-faced to convincingly pull off a judge as well. Poor Sung Dong Il seems like the lone firm leg in this three-legged casting stool.
