Romance is never far behind in Korean drama, and it's making a little peek-a-boo in the latest poster for "Miss Hammurabi", which is followed by the more overtly "shippy" third teaser. Everyone looks cute, and since we've already established their lack of professionalism, a possible romance won't be messing with much.
The poster gives each judge the descriptor previously provided by office busybody, Jeong Bo-wang (Ryu Deok-hwan). We have Im Ba-reun (L) as The Total Jerk, Park-Cha Oh-reum (Go Ara) as The Crazy Newbie, and Han Se-sang (Sung Dong-il) as The Profane Judge. The tagline reads "The judges who can't be found anywhere in the world are coming!"
I was worried over the lion's share the male lead of "Miss Hammurabi" was getting for a while, but I'm glad to see that queen Oh-reum herself has been given her rightful place. I love how she's leading her fellow judges by the hand in the poster. Perhaps the idea here will be that having the heart for your work is what counts the most, since you can improve on other aspects.
The teaser provides all manner of bickering between the younger leads and their clashing ideologies, and we see some supporting and guest stars, including the ever so lovely Kim Young-ok. Sung Dong-il perpetually looking 100% done with everything is very relatable, since I'm already bracing for the aforementioned clashing myself.
May the judges learn to play nice and get some justice delivered along the way. "Miss Hammurabi" will begin airing on May 21st, on jTBC.
