The Devil Judge is hailed as the most buzzworthy drama in Korea today. A story set in dystopian, chaotic Korea bereft of law and order, Head Trial Judge Kang Yo Han (Ji Sung – Doctor John, Innocent Defendant, Protect My Boss) is signaling the need for change. His courtroom is the subject of a reality show where he mercilessly punishes the guilty, earning him the nickname of “Devil Judge”. A bitter rivalry has taken shape between the “Devil Judge” and the highly ambitious Jung Sun Ah (Kim Min Jung – My Fellow Citizens), who has risen from poverty to become the director of a corporate social responsibility foundation. Into this turbulent world enter two childhood friends on a quest for true justice: rookie Judge Kim Ga On (Park Jin Young – When My Love Blooms, Melting Me Softly, He is Psychometric) and Police Officer Yoon Soo Hyun (Park Gyu Young – The Third Charm, Fight for My Way). Do they have what it takes to challenge both the scheming Jung Sun Ah and the notorious “Devil Judge”?

Team Bulldog Off-Duty Investigation, It isn’t uncommon to see crimes get brushed aside without a proper investigation. Known as an enthusiastic and impressively effective detective, Jin Kang Ho (Cha Tae Hyun) will stop at nothing to catch the criminals he’s assigned to pursue. With a passion for solving the unsolvable cases, Kang Ho finds it’s better to work alone. Or so it was, until the day he met Kang Moo Young (Lee Sun Bin – Criminal Minds: Korea, Another Miss Oh {Tagalog Dub}, Me and Me). The overly zealous producer of a low-rated investigative program, Moo Young is as enthusiastic about solving cases and catching criminals as Kang Ho. Sharing such an intense passion for their work, the two agree to team up, working together to make the world a better place. Joined later on by a former criminal profiler, a bar CEO and legendary fist-fighter who has chosen to put his past behind him, and a funeral director who once headed up the ace autopsy team at the National Forensic Service, this ragtag team soon become an unstoppable force in the world of crime-fighting.
