In the juvenile court system, a legal assistant may be present,
but there are no prosecutors in the court room.
The judge directly questions the young offenders and then decides whether to grant them probation.
And if probation is granted, the judge’s real work begins.
Since they need to monitor the young offender
and see that they’re adjusting well.
To ensure that the young offender doesn’t run away or re-offend.
The judge overseeing the case assumes a continuous supervisor role.
-Sim Eun Seok-

Why is the judge involved even after the trial is over?
I believe the purpose of Juvenile Law is to provide a structure
where troubled kids can reform themselves and mature into better citizens.
-Sim Eun Seok-

So these juvenile criminal cases go through collegiate court
and the sentences are reported to Mr. Kang.
Although protection cases are done separately and on specific days.

Following up the kids after their release
is one of the responsibilities of a Juvenile Court judge.
You may not have overseen their cases, but they’re your responsibility, you know.

Schizophrenia manifests in many different ways.
Some patients believe that someone’s trying to hurt them.
Others hear things, see things, smell things, and feel things.

But one thing we know for certain
is that, for now, we don’t have a viable cure for schizophrenia.
Patients have difficulty concentrating for an extended time.
-Sim Eun Seok-

There are two main reasons why criminals usually hide their underlying intent.
One reason is that it’s unfavorable to the criminal,

These kids aren’t serial killers or international criminals.
They’re just some juvenile delinquents.
But they’ve managed to fool the whole nation and the police as well.
The court should at least try and find out the reason.
Isn’t that our job after all?
-Sim Eun Seok-

If they commit even worse crimes when they’re older,
and victimize more people like Ji-hu,
whose fault is that gonna be?
We need to show them how harsh the law can be!
We have to teach them when you hurt someone…
you have to pay the consequences.
And when parents attempt to cover for their criminal children,
we must intervene and stop it.
That’s the job we’re all here to do.
-Sim Eun Seok-

It isn’t just a question of offenders and victims.
The objective of the Juvenile Criminal Collegiate Division

Your work here won’t gain a lot of attention
when you open a law office later.
-Cha Tae Ju-

Sim Eun Seok:
At least that’s the court’s rule.
We’re only court judges.
We can’t change a person’s nature, you know.
Cha Tae Ju:
I’m just concerned.
She’ll serve out her prison time and become an adult.
And then what?

That’s what her parents need to do.
They need to make her realize the seriousness of what she’s done.

If parents don’t make an effort,
their children will never change.

“Juveniles prone to committing criminal offenses
will be taken into custody.”

She’s a child who suffered from abuse.
Children like that never grow up.
Ten years? Twenty years?
Time will quickly pass by

That is up to us judges to give them a second chance.
That’s what’s meaningful and important about being a judge.

It’s the court that punishes young offenders,
but I’m the one who takes care of them every single day.
You see them for just two or three hours when you visit for inspection.
Us, on the other hand, we wrestle with them every day to try to change them.
-O Seon Ja-

Even though the kids in the center are young,

They permeate.

They commit crimes they wouldn’t normally do.
They’re swayed into the wrong crowd.
Even they know it. They know they shouldn’t, but they do it anyway.
They hope that when they hurt themselves,
it’ll somehow hurt their family as well.
They wanna be noticed.
They want others to know
they’re having a hard time.
Family is the starting point of most cases of misconduct.

so the student suffers.
But it’s different if you drop out.
All of your non-subject grades still stay intact.
-Seo Beom-

Cha Tae Ju:
The school allowed the kids who leaked the tests to drop out.

And the ones who will suffer the worst will be the innocent ones.
The trial has lost all fairness.

I’ll be sincere when I deal with their cases.
Though I despise them,
I’ll make decisions with a cool head.
Though I despise them,
I won’t look at them with any bias.
In other words, my initial thoughts remain the same.
But the context for them is very different at this point
So, yes, my actions will be different from before.
But I will always despise young criminals.
-Sim Eun Seok-
