After departing from JYP Entertainment along with his GOT7 bandmates with their exclusive contracts ending on January 19, Jinyoung will be focusing on his solo projects for a while which includes considerable attention on his acting career. In recent years, we've been left charmed by the 26-year-old actor-singer with his earnest performances in hit shows like He Is Psychometric and When My Love Blooms.

According to Xportsnews via Soompi, Jinyoung has been confirmed as one of the main leads in tvN's upcoming drama titled Devil Judge and will be starring alongside Ji Sung of Kill Me, Heal Me fame, Kim Min-jung of Mr. Sunshine fame and Park Gyu-young of It's Okay to Not Be Okay fame. As for the character details, Sung plays Kang Yo-han, who is the head trial judge wearing legal robes for the purpose of hunting down villains.

With the moniker of the 'devil judge', Yo-han adorns the mask of the law with a courtroom show to punish the greedy and power-hungry bad guys. It's impossible for anyone to know what Yo-han is truly thinking inside as he's created an aura of mystery interlaced with his handsome face and elegant tastes.

On the other hand, we have Min-jung essaying the role of Jung Sun-ah, an executive director of a CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) foundation who happens to be Yo-han's greatest rival. It's Sun-ah's combination of beauty and brains which allows her to be closely involved with many important people including Yo-han while having the power to shake up the nation.

As for Jinyoung, the actor will portray the role of Kim Ga-on, an associate trial judge who lost his parents when he was a child and simultaneously had a rough childhood. However, Ga-on overworked diligently in order to get his first appointment as a judge. Ga-on truly shines as the one ray of hope in a dystopian world who has immense patience and endurance but is thrown into utter chaos while observing Yo-han's actions.

Finally, we have Gyu-young who will be seen as Yoon Soo-hyun, a police detective in a regional investigation unit. Soo-hyun and Ga-on are childhood friends and grew up like siblings. Even though Soo-hyun is quite popular, owing to her easygoing personality and good looks, Ga-on is oblivious to his friend's charms. Moreover, Soo-hyun is on the hunt for Yo-han's secrets which adds even more intrigue to her character.

Devil Judge sure sounds like an enticing watch!
