I started Solomon Perjury with the intention of probably dropping it; school dramas usually bore me. Yet, i was hooked 5 minutes in.

I loved this drama in the sense that it was very well written. There weren't any plot holes and the writer stayed true to the previous episodes/overall plot rather than trying to manipulate and fool everyone at the end by introducing a whole different reason to why Sowoo died read more just to create an "illusion" of a major plot twist. Instead, the reason why Sowoo died kept you second guessing until the last episode but when the truth was revealed, it doesn't really take you by surprise either.

More than anything, I also loved the characters. For me in particular, even though Bae Joonyoung acts more of a side character, I believe he was very important to the story. In a way (not completely...but in a way) his story sort of mirrors that of Jihoon's and Sowoo's but with a more positive outcome. [SPOILER]: His almost suicide attempt, his crippling family and their mediation, and at one point his outlook on life. [END SPOILER] His character fighting through all that while the trial was still ongoing made me feel even more sympathetic towards the other two characters; it made it more real. That's just me though. Oh and the subtle romance between him and Seoyeon was a very nice addition!! It was the perfect relief to the bleakness of the drama. There wasn't much but it was cute.

I have more to say about the other characters but I'm lazy and this would turn into a 10 page review so I'll stop here.

Anyways, overall I give this drama a 9/10. I don't really have anything bad to say. Though one thing that got me a bit ????? is WHY is it so easy to gain entry into the school at like 11pm lol??? You have kids going up the roof top and into classrooms when it's pitch black. One way to decrease the number of student suicides on school grounds? Lock the school gates mayb. Also, I'll say this; although the reason for Sowoo's death didn't surprise me, I'm mad that he died that way. No, I'm not talking about the school. As much as I wanna rant about it, it's a major spoiler so I can't lol.

My first review!

I happened to watch this out of curiosity. It's a remake and has a movie version already. A friend of mine told me that this is a drama that should've been a movie instead, so I watched the 'supposedly movie' drama. It got me hooked as soon as they started the episode with the trial. It seemed intense.

I like, no, I love school based drama generally. It has read more almost all the school dramas need such as bullying, studying, rumors, corruption, (subtle) romance, etc. But they pointed teenager's life as the main problem and they brought it nicely. It's when we're 'too young to do that but too old to be like that'. The writer didn't lack consistency at bringing the teens' point of view which is very good.

The overall plot is very predictable to me but it doesn't make it less interesting. The trial scenes are the most intense part. It showed the characters' true nature by showing emotions at times despite trying to be as professional as they could. But, I think it could've done better, maybe if it wasn't focused on who'll be the witness next or such.

My love for this drama emphasized through the end so I recommend to not drop it halfway. The relationship stories, I love them all. The highlight is really the Jihoon X every boys bromance (but Seoyeon-Joonyoung tho!!). Seoyeon's mom is the best mother character I've watched. The family problems and its reconciliation. The quote of the drama came out from my boy's mouth tho "It's not that he didn't want to live, he just didn't want to live that way". And I don't realize how important Jeongguk Watchman is until almost the end.

As the acting, I LOVE all the main characters and their acting. The actors portrayed the characters amazingly and there are some scenes that give me goosebumps because how well they done it (We should give standing applause to the character Han Jihoon) The supporting(s) such as Lee Joori did great too to the point I literally got really mad (she shoulda have her own psychological movie with her being the main character). Despite how good they are, some of the supporting roles' acting are off-putting but I forgive it since they just ruined the mood, not the story.

Overall it's 8.5, having fun in guessing what happened, but not really surprised when it all happened.

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

Both dramas involve the suicide/possible murder of a high school student and work to unveil school corruption. Angry Mom is lead more by the adults while Solomon's Perjury is lead by a group of students. Angry Mom is a bit darker than Solomon's Perjury, but both have some humor and romance in them.

The both center around a murder on campus and try to solve who did it.

    i like the plot but gosh that bad guy's father is so lame, his acting is even worse
    generally all the side charachters are just meh... plus the editing style is somehow stiff so even the lead actors aren't that bad they look like they are -.-
    but i'll continue to watch to see if things get any better after episode 2

      No, it may seem like that but both of them did their best to make the truth come out. So they need to do and prove both opposing sides so truth will come out. Their purpose was to bring out the truth and I'm not sure if you finished watching it but both of them really didn't care about winning or losing.
