On July 3, tvN’s latest drama ‘The Devil Judge’ aired its first episode, hitting an average of 6.0% viewer rating and peaked at 6.9% (according to Nielsen Korea).
In particular, among the key viewer demographic of those aged 20 to 49, it garnered a national average of 3.0% and a high of 3.7% viewership rating, ranking it first place for its time slot across all channels, including public broadcast networks.
Set in a dystopian present-day Korea, Head Trial Judge Kang Yo Han (portrayed by Ji Sung) 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." As a divisive figure with an aura of mystery that belies his true identity and ambitions, the public is unsure whether he is a true hero or someone, knowingly sowing the seeds of discontent in his courtroom.
Meanwhile, ‘The Devil Judge’ airs every Saturday and Sunday at 9PM KST on tvN.
