The first two ‘Miss Hammurabi’ episodes aired this week, and we’re so stoked to continue watching this great series starring Go Ah Ra, Kim Myung Soo (INFINITE's L), and Sung Dong Il. Here’s why:

1. A legal show written by a judge


Ten years ago, judge Moon Yoo Seok and ‘Miss Hammurabi’ director Kwak Jung Hwan lamented the absence of quality legal TV shows in Korea that are written by the experts. Judge Moon wrote a column called ‘Miss Hammurabi’ in 2015 with the intention to turn it into a TV show, director Kwak shared on Monday’s press conference. Judge Moon published the series of articles on The Hankyoreh into a book in 2016, and wrote the ‘Miss Hammurabi’ screenplay.

2. It tackles gender issues


Park Cha Oh Reum (Go Ah Ra) is a feminist in her own way. She doesn’t accept manspreading in a crowded subway train. She also takes the idea of business attire for women to the extreme by showing up in a niqab. Down the road, you’ll see this ambitious rookie judge afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted.

3. Go Ah Ra and Sung Dong Il reunite


A daughter and a father from Answer Me 1994 reunite as a rookie judge and her boss. They’ve also starred together in Hwarang.

4. Kim Myung Soo’s breakthrough role

His first lead was in the 2012 drama Shut Up Flower Boy Band. We loved Myung Soo as the kid version of Joo Joong Won (So Ji Sub) in The Master's Sun. With these experiences under his belt, Infinite’s L transformed into a cool-headed judge who’s actually empathic inside in ‘Miss Hammurabi,’ and proved himself as a talented idol-turned-actor.

We’d like to know why you’re stoked to watch ‘Miss Hammurabi.’ What did you think of the first two episodes, and why are you thrilled to continue watching? Is it Myung Soo's good looks that keeps you going, like Ryoo Duk Hwan said? Or is it the way he slowly falls for Go Ara's character? Please let us know in the comments below!
