In 2008, public participation trials were introduced for the first time in the Republic of Korea. Although it was a historical event enough to draw interesting assumptions, the movie <Juror 8> became the first Korean film to use this as a subject.
It is a legal story that may seem a bit difficult for the general public, and there is concern that it may be a rather heavy non-fiction replay as it is based on a true story. However, the movie <Juror 8> clearly reveals its identity from the bright and humorous poster.
Judge Kim Jun-gyeom (Moon So-ri), who is inflexible and values principles, has been in charge of the criminal department for 18 years. The polarity of reporters who have been lining up in front of the court for a long time is also painful, but it is because they cannot hide the heavy burden of the first jury trial.
The chief judge (Kwon Hae-hyo), who dreams of being promoted with this opportunity, nurtures him to proceed with ease, and the behavior of the eight ordinary people who attended the jury is not trustworthy at all.
In particular, the 8th juror Kwon Nam-woo (Park Hyung-sik), who rushed to fill the vacancy that occurred just before the trial, is in the mood to do something stupid and hit him once. The trial begins, and as the defendant Kang Doo-sik (Seo Hyun-woo), who admitted to the crime at the time of arrest, out of the blue claims his innocence, fears become a reality.
