Characters

Ma Ideum (cast. Jung Ryeowon)

She is an ace prosecutor with experience in all four of district prosecutors' office in Seoul. She walks a fine line between legal and illegal investigation. She does not hesitate to use personal attacks, fabricate evidence and incite perjury in order to win her case. That being said, she is egoistic and ill-tempered. In the most conservative organization in Korea, she has been struggling to rise from humble beginnings. Then she gets caught up in a case and is assigned to the special task force for child sex crimes, the most undesired team in the organization.

Yeo Jinwook (cast. Yoon Hyun Min)

He is a newbie prosecutor who graduated from law school at the top of his class. He takes no interest in promotion, success and office politics. He used to be a pediatric psychiatrist, so he is able to distinguish truth and falsehood by finding the subtle nuance and hidden clues in people's testimony, which is a useful ability for solving sex crimes, which always lack physical evidence. At first, he is not fond of Ideum, who pursues power without reserve. But when he learns about her painful past, he holds out his hand to her and protects her.

Jo Gabsoo (cast. Jeon Gwang Ryeol)

Because his father was a left-wing activist under the right-wing government, he was not able to become a prosecutor. Instead, he became a policeman. Whenever he had a chance of getting promoted, his father's record would always drag him down. So he accused innocent people as communists to show his loyalty for the government. Yet he holds no regret or shame for the terrible things he's done. After retiring as a chief officer, he is elected as a member of the National Assembly. He is a member of the advisory board of a law firm, and he runs for the mayor of Yeong-pa city.

Min Jisook (cast. Kim Yeojin)

She is the chief prosecutor of the special task force for sex crimes against children and women. She created the task force herself to help the victims more efficiently. 20 years ago, she investigated the sexual torture case of Superintendent Jo Gabsoo. She desperately wanted to punish him but failed due to lack of evidence. After 20 years, she is still fighting against Jo Gabsoo's law firm at the court.
