Scandal: A Shocking and Wrongful Incident is a riveting South Korean drama that first aired in 2013. The show revolves around the story of a mother who is falsely accused and imprisoned for a crime she did not commit. The show stars Jin Ju-hyeong, Jae-won Kim, and Jae-Hyun Cho.

At the outset, Scandal may seem like yet another run-of-the-mill courtroom drama. However, it quickly becomes apparent that the show is about so much more than just a legal battle. The central character, Ha Eun-joong (played by Jae-won Kim), is a young lawyer who takes on the seemingly impossible task of clearing the name of his mother, Cha Geum-joo (played by Jin Ju-hyeong). Geum-joo is accused of killing her daughter-in-law and Eun-joong's wife, and she is sentenced to life in prison for the crime. From the outset, Eun-joong believes that his mother is innocent, and he sets out to uncover the truth about what really happened.

The show takes us through the twists and turns of the investigation as Eun-joong delves deeper into the case. He meets a host of complex characters along the way, each of whom has their own reasons for wanting to see Geum-joo convicted. From corrupt policemen to vengeful family members, there are plenty of suspects to go around. However, as Eun-joong continues to dig, he finds that things are not quite as they seem. There is a layer of deception that runs deep throughout the case, and Eun-joong must work hard to unravel the threads of the conspiracy that has engulfed his family.

One of the standout features of Scandal is the way in which the show explores the human emotions behind its characters' actions. There are plenty of legal dramas out there that focus solely on the mechanics of the law, but Scandal is different. The show takes the time to delve into the psyche of its characters, showing us what drives them, what they fear, and what they ultimately hope to achieve. There are moments of intense drama in Scandal, but there are also moments of great poignancy and tenderness, particularly between Eun-joong and his mother.

Jin Ju-hyeong's portrayal of Geum-joo is one of the highlights of the show. Her character is quiet, dignified, and fiercely protective of her family. Despite her dire situation, she refuses to give up hope, even when it seems the whole world is against her. Jae-won Kim, too, gives an excellent performance as Eun-joong. He is both tough and vulnerable, and his determination to uncover the truth is captivating to watch.

The show's direction is also worthy of mention. The pacing of Scandal is superb, with each episode ending on a cliffhanger that leaves you desperate to know what happens next. The cinematography is also top-notch, with beautifully framed shots and clever use of camera angles to heighten tension and mood.

Overall, Scandal: A Shocking and Wrongful Incident is a gripping and emotionally charged drama that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Its exploration of family, justice, and the corrupting influence of power is both nuanced and thought-provoking, and its characters are so compelling that you can't help but root for them. If you're a fan of legal dramas, or just looking for a show with a great story and excellent performances, Scandal is not to be missed.
