The Devil Judge starring Ji Sung and GOT7 member Jinyoung has received high viewership ratings. The impressive dynamics between the two lead stars as they continually butt heads are some of the things fans have come to love.

The Devil Judge also enthralled audiences with its plotline. Ji Sung's role as Judge Yo-han intrigued fans from the beginning because he was hard to judge. Is he an evil chaebol who is corrupt? That would make him the same as the other rich men and women he hangs out with. Or is he on a path to vengeance?

He seemed to be picking one rich person after another as the target of his live court series. It was as if he had a list of people who had to be crossed out, ruined and humiliated.

Jinyoung's character Ga-on finds his tactics deplorable and that is why they oppose each other.

Four episodes of the show have aired so far, with another week left until the next one to air.
