‘Juvenile Justice’ K-drama On Netflix, has adapted from a true case in Korea!


Have you watched the newest K-drama ‘Juvenile Justice’ on Netflix? This Korean drama is about a juvenile court judge who looks down on juvenile offenders. This drama tells the story of juvenile delinquency. Cruel and heart-wrenching cases follow. Kim Hye-soo investigates all the truth with faith and is determined to use the law to win against juvenile delinquents.

Apart from the fact that the main characters are very astute in dealing with the cases, the director also cites real cases in Korea as the beginning of the first episode.

The first episode was launched to discuss a case adapted from a real case in Korea – the case of the dismemberment of an elementary school girl in Incheon. The case involved two teenage girls who were kidnapped and killed using their mobile phones. After the case, the two of them discussed each other in messages: Are her fingers beautiful? Is she still alive? This incident caused a huge heated discussion in Korean society at that time.

This Korean drama is listed as 18 banned, mainly because the cases involved in the drama are in-depth descriptions of brutal murder cases. In episode 1, a 13-year-old teenager boy Baek Seong-Wo, covered in blood and with a sinister smile, went to the police station to surrender herself, admitting that he had killed someone and throwing the victim boy’s body on the roof of the building. The most controversial thing is that even if he is under the age of 14, he can be exempted from criminal responsibility even if he commits a crime.

Under the investigation of Kim Hye-soo and Kim Wu-yeol, it was discovered that the accomplice in this case of dismembering the boy’s body was someone else! When the Baek Seong-Wo turned himself in, he looked at a 16-year-old girl Han Ye-Eun in the distance. It turned out that the two had a plan.

Han Ye-Eun took the boy back to the Baek Seong-Woo’s house, strangled the boy with a wire, and then instructed Baek Seong-Woo to dismember the boy in the bathroom, throwing the organs into the kitchen waste bucket, and the chopped corpse into the water tower on the top floor.

In the end, Han Ye-Eun was sentenced to a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison according to the Juvenile Law, and Baek Seong-Woo received the heaviest protection punishment and entered a juvenile nursing home for two years.

Do you think the above case is purely fictitious? This cruel and unbelievable case actually happened! The case took place in 2017 when two teenage girls deliberately abducted the girl, took her home and murdered her, dismembered her, and dumped her body.

The female high school students surnamed Kim and Park met through a dating app. The two always complained about each other and developed a relationship and committed the crime together. In March 2017, Kim was in a park in Incheon when an 8-years-old girl came to borrow her mobile phone to contact her parents. Kim lied to her: “I didn’t bring a cell phone, so you come home with me, and I’m borrowing your cell phone, okay?”

After the girl followed Kim to the house, the two still chatted at first. Suddenly, Kim picked up the charging cable and strangled the girl, dragged the body to the bathroom, dismembered the body, threw the internal organs into the kitchen waste, and threw the corpse into the water tower on the top floor. The fingers are specially packaged as a gift for the Park.

After they were arrested, not only do not cooperate with the police investigation but also appear to play dumb and shirk responsibility to each other. Kim said she was mentally ill and Park ordered her to commit the crime. Park said she did not know Kim was going to commit murder and that she did not know she had given her finger that night.

In the first trial, the judge found Park guilty of ordering Kim to kill her and helping her dispose of her body, and sentenced her to life in prison as one of the masterminds. At the second trial, however, she was convicted as an accomplice, and her sentence was reduced to 13 years in prison. Kim was sentenced to 20 years in prison because she was a minor. Still, the girl’s family and the community were outraged by the verdict.

The theme of the Korean drama “Juvenile Justice” is to allow the audience to explore the unity of juvenile delinquency in a different way. Juvenile court judges cannot make decisions, they have to consider the life of these juveniles after they leave the court, whether they can be educated, whether they can be corrected, and whether they should be given another chance, etc., so it is not easy at all.
