Another week another K-drama starts filming. The upcoming SBS legal drama Dear Judge is basically mashing up recent dramas Switch with the lookalikes and masquerading identities with other dramas like Miss Hammurabi and Judge v. Judge with all that hotblooded judges fighting for justice angle. I wonder when this genre will burn out and the answer is probably never considering Korean society has so much hotblooded commentary towards political, social, and financial injustice.
Dear Judge has Yoon Shi Yoon playing a set of twins, the judge brother who is upstanding and the petty criminal brother who ends up pretending to be a judge when his twin disappears. Lee Yoo Young chose this drama over Terius Behind Me so I hope there is something fresh and good to watch to come. The PD directed Mask, Heirs, Jang Ok Jung, and My Girlfriend is a Gumiho and the screenwriter did The Package, 7th Grade Civil Servant, Fugitive, and Chuno. The drama premieres at the end of July in the Wed-Thurs slot after The Undateables (Handsome Guy and Jung Eum).
