The K-Drama dealing with prosecutors is an all-time favorite among viewers.

One of the most popular themes in the K-Drama universe is prosecutors. Routinely, they seek justice or they are corrupt. “Witch’s Court”, which aired in 2017, is no exception, but the drama gave off unique charm. That’s why the drama is still on the viewers’ lips.
Witch’s Court, starring Jung Ryeo Won and Yoon Hyun Min, plots how two different prosecutors deal with various cases. Ma Yi Deum and Yeo Jin Wook are put together to handle violence and sex crime cases.
Ma Yi Deum has been a career prosecutor for 7 years and sometimes looks ruthless and heartless. She can do anything to snag a victory in court even though her performance hurts others, while Yeo Jin Wook is a newbie prosecutor and upholds justice which occasionally doesn’t favor the weak. He was a psychiatrist before he became a prosecutor.
Ma Yi Deum and Yeo Jin Wook hate each other’s guts, and yet, they must team up and investigate criminal cases. As the story develops, the two come to realize the fact that they have been brought together was not ascribed from ordinary fate. The duo struggles to disclose the truth behind the heinous doings that occurred years ago.
This drama manifested the motto that justice should not be something that needs to be fought, but should be the right that every person basks in. As such, this drama made the audience feel powerful. The chemistry spun from the two prosecutors was also very compelling and made the viewers feel pleasant.
This phenomenon caused Witch’s Court to surpass 10% in viewership ratings and the audience left a slew of comments online.
“Once I started watching the drama, I was sure this one would be the latest addition to my favorites list. It had such promising elements…A strong female lead, a revenge thriller plot, a potentially cute pairing, and sex crimes, which in America is a super timely subject,” said a user online.
Another user extolled, “I was hooked by the cases. They were shocking and the way the drama delivered them me curious enough to binge watch the first seven episodes. Expressly, the female lead Jung Ryeo Won grew on me. From her smug smiles to those hair tosses, there was nothing I am not in favor of as far as she is concerned.”
Jung Ryeo Won debuted as a singer with the girl group Chakra in 1999, which disbanded in 2004. She gained recognition after her performance in the drama “My Name is Kim Sam Soon.” Not only is she good at acting, she also has talent as an MC and hosted “Art Star Korea,” which features contemporary artists as an audition reality show. She has a reputation as a fashionista. Her real height is 5’6”, but she is able to look taller than that by a smart choice of clothing and heels. Jung Ryeo Won is still single and hasn’t gotten married yet. Although she has already passed her mid 30s, her young face is unbelievable!
