"The Defender: Human Rights" follows investigators for the Human Rights Promotion Commission. They fight for those whose human rights are violated. Han Yoon Seo works as an investigator for the Human Rights Promotion Commission. She investigates cases based only on the only facts while trying to stay impartial throughout the investigation. Because of this, she is often mistakenly thought to lack empathy. Han Yoon Seo also carries a secret and an emotional scar from her past that she cannot tell anyone. Bae Hong Tae is a former prosecutor. He was dispatched to the Human Rights Promotion Commission and began to work as an investigator for that organization. He is righteous and tends to act before thinking things through. Han Yoon Seo and Bae Hong Tae have conflicts on everything, but they work together for the people who need their help.

Best and Worst (abridged)

I have watched several Slice of Lifes that deals with corruption, social issues and every other thing of that sort, so I invite you to watch this one to collect a new public service dept. : the Comission of Human Rights.

BEST:
1. Deals with Human Rights directly. Another perspective of Justice. You ask yourself and even conflict yourself with some situations.
2. The Main Lead is a very strong female Inspector. She's a very good actress, and you wonder how in that mind of hers she can deal with the toughest of situations. Not going to spoil why. You must watch it.
3. The support male role is not your ideal of handsome. Sometimes, it's needed to have realistic guys around, but the casting when far ahead and chose a guy who is scarier than a gangster. First episode was funny.
4. They used classic songs as main theme (not OST). Some people may not know them but they're very significant for the culture and politics of South Korea.

WORST:
1. Sometimes it drags on during the plot. The series is 14 episodes, and they divided 7 stories in series of two by two. So you'll know when to skip and watch the next one.
2. A certain character was meant to have a romance, but it didn´'t pull through. 14 episodes...
3. It's 0CN so... they never skip dark situations. It's more psychological than gore.

Very much enjoyed this drama. For one thing, it had distinct cases that got solved thru-out, which I enjoy. The over-arching story didn't overshadow the individual cases either. Plus the theme was human rights investigations rather than the usual police procedural, so that was refreshing.
I enjoyed the tension between the two main leads as well. Our prosecutor learned a bit about thinking outside the box, & remembering that suspects have rights & stories ie are human.
I really do not understand why this didn't do better. It should have.
