I really love the official drama poster for jTBC drama Miss Hammurabi. It delivers a scene full of emotional and life as Go Ara drags along her more stodgy and senior judges L and Sung Dong Il in a local market backdrop. I still think the casting of two out of the three leads is way wack but then I remember the times I liked L in My Lovely Girl and Go Ara in Answer Me 1994 and have a smidgeon of hopefulness. Miss Hammurabi will air in the Mon-Tues time slot for jTBC, a good spot for a legal drama centering solely around judges in the notoriously privileged and insular South Korean judicial community. I thought J-dorama did a great job of peeling of the veneer of judges in Japan being unbiased but it went a little too far. I’d love to see what Miss Hammurabi has to say about being a judge in South Korea ranging from young, academic, to a seasoned veteran.
