Defendant (피고인)

Synopsis

Park Jung Woo (Ji Sung) is a prosecutor at Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office. One day, he wakes up and finds himself locked up inside Woljeong Penitentiary. He is suffering from temporary amnesia. Park Jung-Woo is falsely accused and is sentenced to death. Now, he must struggle to prove his innocence.

Thoughts

I am a fan of Ji Sung’s acting ever since I saw him in Kill Me, Heal Me. In this series, he picked it up a notch. He is a supremely gifted actor and some of the younger actors today couldn’t even compare. He gives a lot of emotion and dimension to the role he is portraying.

As for the other cast, I couldn’t find fault. Although, I must confess that the female lead isn’t much of a factor in progressing the story. Honestly, she could be removed from the series and there wouldn’t be a lot of difference.

And one thing I like about detective dramas is the retribution in the end. It’s just so satisfying to watch. Although, I couldn’t recommend to watch it in one sitting because the series is just so heavy.
